~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
And even worse – despite the fact that the our poor state has yet to generate the “proof points” that these organizations so desire, competency-based (another name for proficiency-based) education has already been written into the Senate version of the ESEA rewrite!

Alas, the global elites’ next step in the climate change correction global warming hoax in collusion with the federal government are recommending the release sulfur dioxide (SO2) into the stratosphere under the guise of deflecting the sun to cool the planet.
In what was once considered a fringe idea to alter the weather conditions of our planet, a federal report was released Tuesday suggesting it might be time to take desperate measures to reverse the effects of climate change.
The two-volume report released by the National Academy of Sciences posed the idea of injecting sulfur pollution into the upper levels of the atmosphere to reflect the sun’s heat away from the planet. Though the report stopped short of suggesting this method be immediately used, it said scientists should study and possibly test the idea soon to help keep global temperatures from rising out of control.
The injections would mimic the effects of a large volcanic eruption, which tend to have a cooling effect on the atmosphere, the report said. While it’s believed this would be a relatively cheap and effective way to halt the progression of climate change, scientists are still worried that it could have dangerous, unintended side effects that they’re not aware of just yet….
Pursuant to a 2012 article written by John Vidal of The Guardian, Bill Common Core Gates among other members of the Illuminati global elites are funding the experiment to spray sulfur dioxide particles into a cloud to deflect the sun, an experiment that has been in the works for some years now.
A small group of leading climate scientists, financially supported by billionaires including Bill Gates, are lobbying governments and international bodies to back experiments into manipulating the climate on a global scale to avoid catastrophic climate change.
The scientists, who advocate geoengineering methods such as spraying millions of tonnes of reflective particles of sulphur dioxide 30 miles above earth, argue that a “plan B” for climate change will be needed if the UN and politicians cannot agree to making the necessary cuts in greenhouse gases, and say the US government and others should pay for a major programme of international research.
Solar geoengineering techniques are highly controversial: while some climate scientists believe they may prove a quick and relatively cheap way to slow global warming, others fear that when conducted in the upper atmosphere, they could irrevocably alter rainfall patterns and interfere with the earth’s climate.
Geoengineering is opposed by many environmentalists…
Sulfur dioxide irritates the skin and mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. High concentrations of SO2 can cause inflammation and irritation of the respiratory system, particularly during heavy physical activity. The resulting symptoms may include pain when taking a deep breath, coughing, throat irritation, and breathing difficulties. High concentrations of SO2 can affect lung function, worsen asthma attacks, and aggravate existing heart disease in sensitive groups. This gas can also react with other chemicals in the air and convert to a small particle that can lodge in the lungs and cause similar health effects.
Who is at risk?
People particularly sensitive to sulfur dioxide include:
People with lung diseases, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema will generally experience more serious health effects at lower SO2 levels.
Children are at higher risk from SO2 exposure because they are more likely to have asthma, which may be aggravated by SO2 exposure. Their lungs are still developing.
Older adults may be more affected by SO2 exposure, possibly because they are more likely to have pre-existing lung or cardiovascular disease….
A nearly $800,000 project from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is pairing the University of Pennsylvania with a robot company to create the machines, which will be able to deliver glasses of water to senior citizens.
The government said that the project is necessary due to a demographic crisis in America where soon there will not be enough young people to take care of their elders….
This Partnership For Innovation project develops and tests the use of service robots to monitor and improve health of the elderly. The growing elderly population coupled with low birth rates in the developed world is creating a crisis in healthcare. The number of senior citizens is outgrowing the number of working-age adults to care for them. In the U.S. alone, the number of seniors over age 65 is projected to double from year 2000 to 2030, reaching 71.5 million. With the scarcity of care options available, affordable robots are a welcome solution for assisting elders with small tasks that would normally be done by a caregiver. While helping elders with activities of daily living in an elder care facility, the system learns about them. It can then do things such as help ensure that they are eating or drinking healthily.
The project consists of two main parts: development of a low-cost mobile manipulator capable of a limited set of elder-relevant manipulation tasks (e.g., picking up dropped items or filling a water glass); and development of a data-driven service system that analyzes the use of the robot over time to monitor elder health via service requests and pro-actively offer assistance as needed. One key to making this system viable is maintaining effectiveness at low cost. This work builds on a commercial low-cost mobile robot platform being developed at Savioke and adds manipulation capabilities via a novel low-cost expanding prismatic joint arm under development at the University of Pennsylvania. This mobile manipulator robot will be used to perform service tasks, such as delivering water to elders. The data gathered by these robots and how elders use them in the field will provide information about how robots can help create a larger data-driven health monitoring system.
The partners at the inception of the project include University of Pennsylvania, both the School of Engineering and Applied Science as well as the School of Medicine (Philadelphia, PA) and Savioke (Sunnyvale, CA, a small business concern) along with broader context partner, “LIFE”–Living Independently For Elders (Philadelphia, PA, a non-profit organization).
“…ensure that they are eating or drinking healthily…This mobile manipulator robot will be used to perform service tasks, such as delivering water to elders.”
Impossible to buy this sell from an administration that has so little regard for the unborn, babies, the sick and elderly especially when one takes into account that the primary objectives of the government and corporations is data mining.

While the NSF webpage quotes the growing number of seniors as the rationale behind this project, it is worth noting that Barack Obama’s cuts to Medicate under Obamacare will drive nearly half of the home healthcare agencies in the United States out of business and/or into bankruptcy by 2017.
this will have a detrimental effect beyond seniors; it will also have a direct impact on taxpayers and the economy. By causing so many home health providers to close, the home health care cut will result in higherMedicare costs as many seniors are forced into more expensive institutional settings. The closures will also cause as many as 465,000 professional caregivers to lose their jobs, according to an analysis by Avalere Health.
But most important, the ObamaCare home health cut will have a direct impact on seniors and disabled Americans too.….
Barack Obama, his administration and comrades are biased against the unborn, physically impaired and elderly.

The information of which goes into a federal database for the 2016 elections. Its intent is to target Conservatives by suppressing free speech and political dissent.
Many would be surprised to learn that Common Core is neither a state-led nor a federal led initiative run by Barack Obama.
Common Core is a global initiative as proven by the MENA Common Core Conference taking place this weekend (October 24-25, 2014) not in New York City, not in Los Angeles and definitely not in Washington, DC but Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The 2nd Annual MENA Common Core Conference will provide professional development to American curriculum schools in the region on effectively employing Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in the classroom. Our mission is to unite for one common goal: To be the most successful schools and teachers for our students while implementing CCSS.
On October 24 and 25, hundreds of schools, leadership teams, and teachers from across the region will gather in Dubai, to learn about the Common Core State Standards, share curricula and best practices, and network with each other. The event will unite administrators, teachers, and schools around improving teaching and learning for all of our students.
The MENA Common Core Conference is sponsored by the Middle East and North Africa and organized by KDSL, “a Dubai-based education company founded by Kevin Simpson and Alison Burrows. KDSL partners with organizations around the world to increase student achievement, teacher knowledge, and leadership in education.”

As you may or may not be aware, one the corporations mentioned above, AMIDEASTsuspended by the Egyptian government for the 2014-2015 school year because of its radical Islamist ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Clearly if our government made the interest of Americans their primary agenda, such affiliation would have set off alarms. Then again, with the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House, maybe not.

In November 2004, Bill Gates signed an agreement with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
UNESCO has been pushing to establish their World Core Curriculum into schools throughout the United States for decades.
President Reagan withdrew the United States from UNESCO on December 31, 1984 because it was corrupt, anti-Western, and a vehicle for far-left propaganda. Unfortunately, President George W. Bush rejoined UNESCO in 2003.
UNESCO’s efforts in the 1960s and 1970s to influence U.S. school curriculum were unsuccessful. But now UNESCO has found a sugar daddy.
On November 17, 2004 at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, UNESCO signed a 26-page “Cooperation Agreement” with Microsoft Corporation to develop a “master curriculum (Syllabus)” for teacher training in information technologies based on standards, guidelines, benchmarks, and assessment techniques. The Agreement states that the Syllabus will “form the basis for deriving training content to be delivered to teachers,” and “UNESCO will explore how to facilitate content development…”
Following the signing of the Agreement, UNESCO Director General Koichiro Matsuura explained it in a speech. One of its goals, he said, is “fostering web-based communities of practice including content development and worldwide curricula reflecting UNESCO values.” No doubt that is agreeable to Bill Gates because the Agreement states that “Microsoft supports the objectives of UNESCO as stipulated in UNESCO’s Constitution.”
Rest assured, America in knowing that our big corporations, the federal government and so-called educators are working in collaboration with the United Nations in an effort to fundamentally transform our youth in mindless drones for the good of the collective (sarcasm).

Gates Foundation Launches Giant Database on School Children ‘inBloom’
Private information for over 11 million students is being collected
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave $100 million to fund a giant database to collect private information of American school children starting in early education and extending all the way through high school.
Promoted as a technological tool to help teachers tailor education to the individual needs of students, inBloom is a database that stores student’s scores, attendance, special needs, disabilities, etc. The intent is to exploit the technology that is available today to replace antiquated paper records….
