THE FILTER BUBBLE


You may be able to find information about Kasab, the alleged Mumbai attacker, being interrogated in jail by David Headley.

But what about when your neighbour searches for information about the Mumbai attacks of 2008?

"The internet is increasingly becoming an echo chamber in which websites tailor information according to the preferences they detect in each viewer.

"When some users search the word 'Egypt,' they may get the latest news about the revolution, others might only see search results about Egyptian vacations.

"The top 50 websites collect an average of 64 bits of personal information each time we visit—and then custom-design their sites to conform to our perceived preferences."

Biotech company using cell lines from aborted babies in food enhancement testing

That is right sports fans Pepsi is using aborted fetal cells in flavor enhancers. They are used in by Nestle and Kraft Foods. Are you beginning to get the picture? The Frankenstein monster has escaped the castle and is running free along with Dr. Frankenstein. What is next the legalization of cannibalism? Apparently there is big dollars in child murder! I don’t drink them, haven’t for decades. I am wondering if anyone who does has developed a taste for human flesh yet?

Welcome to the world of Mad Max, The Road and Soylent Green!

The article is pretty explanatory for pro-death morons which I don't debate, I state.

Nice blog too
