Toxic metal cadmium found in

Associated Press, by Staff

LOS ANGELES -- Jewelry with the toxic metal cadmium is showing up on the shelves of national retailers including Ross, Nordstrom Rack and Papaya, according to newly released test results. Analysis done for the nonprofit Center for Environmental Health revealed some jewelry sold with women´s dresses and shirts was nearly pure cadmium, which can cause cancer and reproductive harm after prolonged exposure. (Snip) No laws address cadmium in adult jewelry, however, and last year the center decided to check those products. Lab testing found 31 adult jewelry items purchased from retail stores were at least 40 percent cadmium, and most

Comments:
In 2010 the AP reported that some Chinese jewelry manufacturers were substituting cadmium for lead; Congress had imposed usage of lead following a series of imported-product safety scandals. The “jewelry industry helped write voluntary U.S. standards following the AP investigation, but the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission did not mandate any cadmium limits.”

Cadmium plating has been used on the majority of nuts, bolts and washers used on every consumer product in the last 50 years or so.

This is ridiculous. Don´t eat your jewelry in large quantities.

Cadmium is only an issue if you ingest or inhale it. Most adult women do not ingest or inhale their costume jewelry.

The pathway for cadmium toxicity is usually inhalation and mostly for cigarette smokers.
You´re already getting a low amount from the foods you eat and the water you drink.

There is no pathway for skin exposure.

More feigned hysteria.

I am betting this article is an effort to tee up a class action lawsuit directed against anyone involved in making or retailing anything containing cadmium. This is a familiar pattern.

I try to avoid buying anything from China, especially that my grandchildren might put in their mouths. They put poison in paint on toys, they put corrosives in sheet rock that ruins houses, now cancer causing jewelry. It certainly looks intentional.
I am absolutely furious that congress voted to keep us in the dark about whether our food comes from China!

Hillary Clinton had her security clearance removed over the summer “at her request,” the Senate Judiciary Committee, who received confirmation from the State Department, revealed Friday. The news comes as part of an update from the State Department of “its ongoing review of the mishandling of classified information related to the use of Clinton’s non-government email server,” a news release from the committee said. Five other people labeled by the former secretary of state as being researchers, “including close aide Cheryl Mills,” also lost their clearance, the news release said.

Hillary Clinton: Democrats ´cannot be civil´

HillaryClinton, in a television interviewTuesday, rejected the idea thatDemocrats should be “civil” withRepublicans in the age of DonaldTrump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. Speaking to CNN’s ChristianeAmanpour, the 2016Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back theHouse and/or theSenate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thingRepublicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Just days before Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee plan to hold a critical vote on whether to recommend Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh´s confirmation to the full Senate, a key swing vote Republican senator, Lisa Murkowski, seemed to suggest that her support for the nominee is wavering. “We are now in a place where it’s not about whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is qualified,” Murkowski said in an interview on Monday night. “It is about whether or not a woman who has been a victim at some point in her life is to be believed.”

Time to end the judiciary circus

The Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus announced last year it was closing after a 146-year run, largely because of high operating costs, costly legal battles with animal rights groups and declining ticket sales, especially after elephants were retired from the show. Brett Kavanaugh´s embattled nomination for the Supreme Court has become a circus, and it´s time for the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider closing it to the public. As Kavanaugh´s nomination has shown, these hearings only serve the objectives of special interests and certain politicians, not the general public.

RuthGinsburg, Ruth“Buzzi”Ginsburg, is gonna hang on as long as she can.(Snip)This is probably foolish, but I have the opportunity here, and I’m gonna give it just a little bit of a shot. Over the years, I have very rarely made personal appeals to elected officials on the belief that it would be unsuccessful, wouldn’t work.It’s probably still the case. However, if I had a chance to talk toLisaMurkowski andSusanCollins, I would like to say just one thing primarily to them. I just saw a little news report that they’re both wavering.

WASHINGTON – Two years after MikePence helped convince evangelical Christians to back Donald Trump´s presidential bid, the vice president warned faith voters that complacency is the greatest threat toRepublicans keeping control ofCongress.

"But I say we must match--in fact, I say we must surpass--the energy of the American left and their enthusiasm and passion."

California Gov. Jerry Brown ramped up his criticism of President Trump in an interview that aired Monday--calling the president a “saboteur” in the fight to combat climate change and saying that “something’s got to happen to this guy.” Speaking to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell at an environmental summit in San Francisco last week, Brown tore into Trump for the president’s controversial tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria and urged voters to vote for Democrats in November’s midterm elections in an effort to thwart Trump’s agenda. “We never had a president who was engaged in this kind of

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Planned Parenthood have come under fire after accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of describing contraceptives as “abortion-inducing drugs”--when he was only summarizing the position of a pro-life group. The flashpoint came on Thursday when Kavanaugh was asked at his Supreme Court confirmation hearing about a case he ruled on that involved Priests for Life, who were challenging Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate that the group said violated their religious beliefs. (Snip) Harris accused Kavanaugh of choosing his words carefully and said, “This is a dog whistle for going after birth control.”

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career. Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority “Native American” to get ahead in her career. Warren is a fraud and she is concerned it may damage her chances of becoming the next US president. In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American. In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, “who is Native American”, was their only minority tenured woman on staff. Hat Tip Chris-A 1997 article in the Fordham Law Review

Nearly everybody loves music. In fact, music can often bridge the gaps between people when nothing else can. And there are few things more fun than seeing people react to hit songs. There’s definitely no formula to what constitutes a hit song, although some songs were natural hits from the first time they made their way on the radio – think about songs like “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” or “Irreplaceable.” Other tunes become smashes inexplicably. But there’s a whole different category of hits: overrated songs. Some singles have no business being popular or well-loved, and

Sen.

Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself. In her first tweet, and without any evidence, Warren made the outlandish claim that Trump “makes creepy physical threats about me.” The truth is that all Trump has ever done is ridicule her false claims about being Cherokee. “We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that shows “strong evidence” she has Native-American heritage, rebutting President Donald Trump’s ridicule of her as “fake Pocahontas” while she signals a possible 2020 presidential run. Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said last month she would take a “hard look” at running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Trump in 2020. She and Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native-American ancestry. “When I decided to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family’s Native American heritage would come

On Oct. 14, CBS’s “60 Minutes” aired an interview with President Donald Trump — rare for its status as having appeared outside of Fox News or conservative media. Appearing the same weekend as First Lady Melania Trump’s appearance on “20/20,” this would seem to represent a new level of media blitzing on the part of an administration that’s already seen its head get plenty of free promotion during rallies broadcast on cable news. And, like Melania Trump’s utterly-on-message, relentlessly forward-moving TV interview, the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief
