  • 36/82   Ardern Storms to Historic Election Win After Crushing Covid
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern swept to an historic election victory and said she will use her mandate to rebuild an economy battered by the coronavirus pandemic and tackle social inequality.Ardern’s Labour Party secured the first outright majority in parliament since the introduction of proportional representation in 1996 and, if preliminary results stand, its biggest share of the vote in more than 70 years. While Ardern is expected to invite the Green Party into her new administration, she doesn’t need them to govern and said she needs time to take stock.“Over the next three years there is much work to do,” Ardern told supporters Saturday night in Auckland. “We will build back better from the Covid crisis. This is our opportunity to build an economy that works for everyone. We have the mandate to accelerate our response and our recovery.”Ardern, 40, has captured the hallowed center ground in New Zealand politics with a blend of empathetic leadership and skilled crisis management that has also won her fame abroad. Her successful handling of the coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated those strengths, drowning out criticism that she hasn’t delivered on some key promises during her first term in office.Preliminary results give Ardern 64 of the 120 seats in parliament. Labour won 49% of the vote after a huge swing to the left in many urban and provincial electorates. The opposition National Party slumped to 27%, its worst showing since 2002.

    (Bloomberg) -- New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern swept to an historic election victory and said she will use her mandate to rebuild an economy battered by the coronavirus pandemic and tackle social inequality.Ardern’s Labour Party secured the first outright majority in parliament since the introduction of proportional representation in 1996 and, if preliminary results stand, its biggest share of the vote in more than 70 years. While Ardern is expected to invite the Green Party into her new administration, she doesn’t need them to govern and said she needs time to take stock.“Over the next three years there is much work to do,” Ardern told supporters Saturday night in Auckland. “We will build back better from the Covid crisis. This is our opportunity to build an economy that works for everyone. We have the mandate to accelerate our response and our recovery.”Ardern, 40, has captured the hallowed center ground in New Zealand politics with a blend of empathetic leadership and skilled crisis management that has also won her fame abroad. Her successful handling of the coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated those strengths, drowning out criticism that she hasn’t delivered on some key promises during her first term in office.Preliminary results give Ardern 64 of the 120 seats in parliament. Labour won 49% of the vote after a huge swing to the left in many urban and provincial electorates. The opposition National Party slumped to 27%, its worst showing since 2002. Final results, including 480,000 special votes, are due on Nov. 6.Ardern will now have more scope to deliver the transformational government she promised when she came to power three years ago, particularly if the Greens are able to push her to be more progressive on issues such as poverty and climate change.Still, she will be wary of alienating the many center-right voters she has won from National at a time when debt is spiraling due to the government’s pandemic response.Government ministers were coy on Sunday about what the new administration will look like and whether it will move left or cater to the center ground. “We’ve got a lot of work to do to keep the faith of many people who have come across and voted for us perhaps for the first time,” Finance Minister Grant Robertson told TVNZ. “We want to be a government for all New Zealanders.”Voters are rewarding Ardern for crushing community transmission of Covid-19 while countries like the U.K., U.S. and even neighboring Australia are still battling to contain the virus.Ardern was alone among her western peers in pursuing an explicit elimination strategy and imposed one of the strictest nationwide lockdowns in the world.The economy suffered its most severe contraction since the Great Depression, slumping 12.2% in the second quarter, but the lockdown wiped out community spread of the virus and restrictions were removed sooner than in many other countries.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Resurge Ingredients: What's Inside the Deep Sleep Support Pills Resurge is a fat burning sleep aid supplement formulated by health professional John Barban that aims to burn fat and heal the body overnight with no changes to diet or exercise.Los Angeles, CA, Oct. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resurge is a fat burning sleep aid supplement formulated by health professional John Barban that aims to burn fat and heal the body overnight with no changes to diet or exercise.By taking Resurge daily, you can purportedly experience a “miracle fat burning formula” due to the unique deep sleep and HGH support formula. The supplement contains a range of ingredients linked to fat burning and other benefits that are supposed to enhance the body's ability to burn fat and lose weight overnight while sleeping by optimizing hormones and metabolic function. The primary benefit John explains about Resurge is its ability to help naturally awaken the regenerative healing potential of the body overnight that can successfully induce fat burning qualities while obtaining deeper sleep night in and night out.But does Resurge really work? How does Resurge supplement really work? What’s inside Resurge pills? Find out everything you need to know about the Resurge deep sleep HGH formula today in our review.What is Resurge?Resurge is a diet pill that claims to help you sleep, then lose weight as you sleep. Resurge is exclusively available through Resurge.com, where it’s priced at $34 to $49 per bottle.The makers of Resurge claim that we “naturally possess more fat-burning and healing potential” than most of us realize. Resurge claims to access this fat-burning and healing potential within you, helping you heal your body and lose weight overnight.“And now you can begin tapping into your body’s true potential easily, naturally and automatically…overnight.”To do that, Resurge uses eight high profile key nutrients that are purportedly completely safe with no side effects. By taking Resurge daily, you can enjoy life-changing results within weeks by steadily supplying the body with the right ingredients fit for improving deep sleep in both men and women.Clearly, the creator of Resurge believes his formula can change individual's world as it has gone on to quite literally be the number one best-selling weight loss sleep aid supplement in the world this year after initially launching and making its market debut back in February 2020. Let’s take a closer look at how Resurge works – to see if it really works as advertised.How Does Resurge Work?Resurge is formulated to impact human growth hormone (HGH) levels in your body while obtaining deeper sleep nightly. By targeting HGH, Resurge aims to enhance your body’s natural healing powers by safely and effectively inducing the fat-burning REM stage of the nightly sleep cycle. To target HGH, Resurge contains ingredients that help you sleep, which purportedly raises your body’s production of HGH overnight, helping you lose weight with no diet or exercise changes.HGH is a crucial hormone that helps rebuild and heal your body. As you get older, HGH levels naturally decline. Some people take supplements that purportedly raise HGH levels with age. HGH can help you recover from injury. It could help you feel younger. And, because everyone knows how vital sound sleep is for the next-day all-day energy levels, the ingredients that help support deeper sleep while burning fat is what makes Resurge the top selling natural sleep aid for burning fat in 2020.Typically, you must actually inject yourself with hormones or similar compounds to impact HGH levels. Exercising or certain therapies can also impact HGH.Resurge, however, claims you don’t need to inject yourself with steroids, exercise, or perform certain therapies to raise human growth hormone levels; instead, you just need to take their supplement. In fact, during John Barban's compelling, educational and highly informative presentation about Resurge, he explains why the Resurge pills will work independently of standard diet, exercise and lifestyle changes.By taking Resurge daily, you can support human growth hormone levels in your body. By supporting HGH levels, Resurge claims to help you lose weight, heal your body, and enjoy other powerful energy-enhancing benefits.Some of the advertised benefits of Resurge include:  * Access the fat burning and healing potential already within you  * Natural anti-aging and fat-burning solution  * “Cures the root cause of unexplained weight gain…metabolic slowdown”  * Enhance natural metabolic regeneration in both women and men  * Scientifically proven to encourage deep sleepAll you need to do is take Resurge before sleep. Resurge “naturally optimizes your deep sleep cycles”, you can purportedly “wake up to a leaner, healthier, younger, and way more energized version of yourself…without having to change a single thing to do with your diet, exercise, or lifestyle.”Most supplements don’t make claims like Resurge. Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in Resurge to see if it works as advertised.Resurge Ingredients: What's Inside the Deep Sleep Support Pills?Resurge contains eight ingredients, including herbal extracts, amino acids, and minerals. Active ingredients in Resurge include:Resurge Ingredients   * 50mg of magnesium (12.5% of your Daily Value)  * 15mg of zinc (100% of your Daily Value)  * 1,200mg of L-arginine  * 1,2000mg of L-lysine  * 200mg of L-theanine  * 150mg of ashwagandha root extract  * 100mg of Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract  * 10mg of melatonin  * Click Here to Buy the Top-Selling, Most-Recommended Natural Weight Loss Sleep Aid from Resurge.comThe most noticeable ingredient in Resurge is melatonin. Each four capsule serving of Resurge contains 10mg of melatonin, which is a relatively high dose of melatonin. Many people take 1mg to 5mg of melatonin before bed to help them fall asleep. With 10mg of melatonin in each serving, Resurge could help you fall asleep.The two amino acids in Resurge, meanwhile, could help your body build protein overnight. Many people take amino acids like L-arginine and L-lysine after a workout. Both L-arginine and L-lysine play a crucial role in the production of proteins. Typically, you don’t see amino acids in sleep aids – but Resurge uses these ingredients to repair your body overnight.The supplement also contains two herbal extracts, including ashwagandha and Griffonia simplicifolia. The company does not cite any studies verifying the use of these ingredients, and it’s unclear how they work. Some studies show these two herbal extracts can relieve anxiety, which could help you sleep, although neither is well-studied.Overall, Resurge is like an amino acid supplement and sleep aid bundled together. It should help you sleep, and it could help your body repair proteins – but it’s not some miraculous HGH booster that will help you lose weight without diet or exercise. But the idea is to start using Resurge every single night, for one month, two months and upwards to three months before the body can start to really work optimally at sleeping sounder, regenerating metabolic function and boosting hormone health.Scientific Evidence for ResurgeThe makers of Resurge have not tested the supplement on any human or animal subjects. They have not conducted any clinical trials or scientific studies on the formula.Despite the lack of direct clinical evidence, the company acknowledges that thousands of men and women used their formula for HGH, weight loss, and other whole body wellness benefits. The company does cite 16 studies on its reference page on individual ingredients within Resurge.First, Resurge’s most noticeable ingredient is melatonin. The supplement contains 10mg of melatonin, which is considered a high dose. Melatonin has been linked with sleep in multiple studies. In this 2014 review study, researchers reviewed dozens of studies on melatonin and found that it could help people restore circadian rhythm after jet lag, shift work, and other things that disrupt your body’s sleep/wake cycle. Most people take 2mg to 5mg of melatonin for sleep, so the 10mg dose in Resurge is relatively high. This is great in comparison to all of the cheap sleep aids that all but rely on the name and its association with being a sleep enhancer.Resurge contains two amino acids, including L-arginine and L-lysine. There’s some evidence amino acids are linked with weight loss, although most people use amino acid supplements to build muscle or aid recovery after a workout – not specifically to lose weight. This 2017 study showed that weight loss can lead to significant changes in amino acid levels, although it’s unclear if L-arginine and L-lysine are directly linked with weight loss.L-theanine, ashwagandha, and Griffonia simplicifolia are commonly used for anti-anxiety benefits. What is even more impressive is when combining these high-powered natural plant-based herbal extracts together to get an extra edge known as the entourage effect.Ashwagandha was used for centuries in traditional medicine for overall health and wellness. In 2011, researchers reviewed studies on ashwagandha and concluded that it was an “anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic agent” linked to anxiolytic [anti-anxiety] effects, improved energy levels, and other benefits. However, most studies on ashwagandha use a dose of 400 to 600mg, and this is the dose used in most other ashwagandha supplements. Resurge contains just 150mg of ashwagandha.Resurge also contains L-theanine, a compound found in certain teas. L-theanine is known for its anxiolytic (anti anxiety) effects, and some people take L-theanine daily to help manage stress. In this 2019 study, researchers found that L-theanine could have a positive impact on stress-related symptoms and cognitive functions in health adults. Researchers gave participants L-theanine or a placebo, concluding that “L-theanine has the potential to promote mental health in the general population with stress-related ailments and cognitive impairments.”Griffonia simplicifolia has not been studied as much as ashwagandha. However, research suggests that Griffonia simplicifolia seeds can impact 5-HTP, a crucial chemical for weight loss. Griffonia simplicifolia contains 5-HTP, which is a precursor to serotonin. Some studies suggest Griffonia simplicifolia can indirectly impact depression, anxiety, appetite, sleep, and motion sickness, among other benefits, by impacting serotonin. In this 1999 study, for example, researchers found that Griffonia simplicifolia could be used to treat insomnia due to its impact on sleep quality.Resurge also contains zinc and magnesium, two crucial minerals important for sleep and other bodily functions.Overall, Resurge seems to work best as a sleep aid or anti-anxiety supplement. The formula contains ingredients that could help you get a deeper, more restful sleep while also reducing anxiety. There’s no evidence that Resurge can significantly raise human growth hormone (HGH) levels, however, or have other powerful effects. It’s an advanced weight loss sleep aid that could help your body enjoy a better, more effective sleep.No one needs to be told how vital sleep is to the human body and brain. And with all of the current 24/7 daily news cycles, non stop alerts and notifications, giving the body's ecosystem a steady supply of deep rest-enhancing ingredients, it should be a no-brainer when the facts are presented and the rise of Resurgehas been nothing short of incredible this entire year.What Does Resurge Supplement Cost?Now, one might think because Resurge is a best-selling natural sleep aid that is also a fat burning weight loss supplement might cost an arm and a leg. However, Resurge is priced between $34 and $49 per bottle, depending on how many bottles you order. This is an incredible value given how many potent natural plant-based extracts and herbal super-nutrients are found in the formula.Here’s how the Resurge pricing breaks down:Resurge Supplement Pricing   * 1 Bottle: $49 + $9.95 Shipping  * 3 Bottles: $117 + $9.95 Shipping  * 6 Bottles: $204 + $9.95 ShippingEach bottle contains 120 capsules (30 servings). You take four capsules of Resurge per day.Please note that certain images of the bottle are labeled as “120 capsules / 120 servings”. Some customers purchase the formula believing they’re receiving a four month supply. It’s unclear if Resurge is misleading customers or if the formula is simply mislabeled, but the supplement always contains 120 capsules and 30 servings.The Resurge website claims the prices above are “special” prices not guaranteed after today. However, Resurge is always priced between $34 and $49 per bottle – every day.Resurge Refund PolicyResurge comes with a 60 day refund policy. You can request a complete refund (minus shipping) within 60 days of your purchase.Who’s Behind Resurge?Resurge was created by Lisa Etwell and John Barban, a brother and sister duo from Canada. John has a background in exercise physiology, sports medicine, and personal training. He has also worked with a range of supplement companies, including MuscleTech, NxLabs, and BlueStar Nutraceuticals, among others.There’s less information online about Lisa Etwell and her qualifications. However, in a 2011 interview, John and Lisa discussed how Lisa lost 47 pounds in 2010 by changing her mindset and changing her relationship with food. John appears to have formulated Resurge based on Lisa’s weight loss journey.There’s limited information online about where Resurge is made or where the ingredients are sourced. The company only provides one contact method – an email address:Email: support@resurge.comIs Resurge a Scam or Legit Sleep Aid?The answer to this vital question is twofold when it comes to properly evaluating Resurge supplementation as a whole. One, is obviously the effectiveness of how well it does burn fat, optimize HGH production and induce deep sleep overnight. The second is the fact of how to officially buy Resurge direct from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, Resurge currently has a solid rating on Amazon, but nearly a third of customers (33% of reviewers) have given it a 1-star rating. Reviewers claim to have not experienced any sleep or weight loss benefits after taking Resurge, with multiple reviewers claiming Resurge is a “scam”, “total rip off”, or advertised with “lies”. However, this appears to be quite misleading given the fact that the best and only place to buy the official product is directly from the Resurge.com website. To date, it appears any Resurge Amazon listing is to be considered fraudulent.To avoid getting scammed by Resurge, consumers need to be savvy and make the wise, smart decision of ordering directly from Resurge.com only. There are multiple Resurge Deep Sleep Formula Amazon.com marketplace listings from a variety of third party retailers that appear to be selling counterfeit Resurge pills. Of course, this is extremely troubling for customers of Resurge as there is no way to guarantee the authenticity or even purity of these Resurge pills. There are multiple unknown brands offering Resurge supplement on Amazon and other retail platforms, all of which appear to be fake and not John Barban's official Resurge deep sleep pills. On top of the fact that these Resurge scams are out there, users who do not buy the top selling weight loss sleep aid on the market also will not be guaranteed the money back clause John Barban generously offers every customer. Because John is so confident in the real Resurge pill results users are experiencing, and knowing that his company independently tests each batch for purity, potency and quality for being completely safe, Mr. Barban offers a full 2 month refund policy if not completely satisfied with its effects.Final WordIn closing, Resurge is a nutritional supplement that makes bold claims about its impact on human growth hormone (HGH) production, weight loss, and sleep.In reality, Resurge is a natural sleep aid with the ability to effectively induce the fat-burning REM stage of the sleep cycle each and every night. The Resurge weight loss formula contains ingredients that help you sleep (like melatonin, Griffonia simplicifolia, and magnesium) and may help relieve anxiety (like L-theanine and ashwagandha), although there’s no scientific evidence Resurge will help you “get skinnier overnight” or lose weight with no changes to diet or exercise outside of what John Barban mentions during the presentation found on the official website at Resurge.com.Overall, the Resurge deep sleep and HGH boosting formula for weight loss and metabolism boosting did not become the top selling, most recommended fat burning sleep pill for no reason. The formula contains strong doses of several active ingredients that have potent associations with helping the body relax and restore itself optimally.  Given the transparency, forward facing nature and effectiveness of the Resurge supplement, coupled with the risk-free nature of having 60-day money back guarantee return policy on all orders, buying Resurge directly from John Barban at Resurge.com is a wise decision to make if you are struggling with sleeping, weight management and hormonal metabolic imbalances.Act now and take full advantage of the incredible value Resurge deep sleep formula supplement has to offer right now.support@resurge.com    KISSPR.COM PRESS RELEASE NEWS DISCLAIMER    This news has been published for the above source.

Many people take amino acids like L-arginine and L-lysine after a workout. Both L-arginine and L-lysine play a crucial role in the production of proteins. Typically, you don’t see amino acids in sleep aids – but Resurge uses these ingredients to repair your body overnight.The supplement also contains two herbal extracts, including ashwagandha and Griffonia simplicifolia. The company does not cite any studies verifying the use of these ingredients, and it’s unclear how they work. Some studies show these two herbal extracts can relieve anxiety, which could help you sleep, although neither is well-studied.Overall, Resurge is like an amino acid supplement and sleep aid bundled together. It should help you sleep, and it could help your body repair proteins – but it’s not some miraculous HGH booster that will help you lose weight without diet or exercise. But the idea is to start using Resurge every single night, for one month, two months and upwards to three months before the body can start to really work optimally at sleeping sounder, regenerating metabolic function and boosting hormone health.Scientific Evidence for ResurgeThe makers of Resurge have not tested the supplement on any human or animal subjects. They have not conducted any clinical trials or scientific studies on the formula.Despite the lack of direct clinical evidence, the company acknowledges that thousands of men and women used their formula for HGH, weight loss, and other whole body wellness benefits. The company does cite 16 studies on its reference page on individual ingredients within Resurge.First, Resurge’s most noticeable ingredient is melatonin. The supplement contains 10mg of melatonin, which is considered a high dose. Melatonin has been linked with sleep in multiple studies. In this 2014 review study, researchers reviewed dozens of studies on melatonin and found that it could help people restore circadian rhythm after jet lag, shift work, and other things that disrupt your body’s sleep/wake cycle. Most people take 2mg to 5mg of melatonin for sleep, so the 10mg dose in Resurge is relatively high. This is great in comparison to all of the cheap sleep aids that all but rely on the name and its association with being a sleep enhancer.Resurge contains two amino acids, including L-arginine and L-lysine. There’s some evidence amino acids are linked with weight loss, although most people use amino acid supplements to build muscle or aid recovery after a workout – not specifically to lose weight. This 2017 study showed that weight loss can lead to significant changes in amino acid levels, although it’s unclear if L-arginine and L-lysine are directly linked with weight loss.L-theanine, ashwagandha, and Griffonia simplicifolia are commonly used for anti-anxiety benefits. What is even more impressive is when combining these high-powered natural plant-based herbal extracts together to get an extra edge known as the entourage effect.Ashwagandha was used for centuries in traditional medicine for overall health and wellness. In 2011, researchers reviewed studies on ashwagandha and concluded that it was an “anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic agent” linked to anxiolytic [anti-anxiety] effects, improved energy levels, and other benefits. However, most studies on ashwagandha use a dose of 400 to 600mg, and this is the dose used in most other ashwagandha supplements. Resurge contains just 150mg of ashwagandha.Resurge also contains L-theanine, a compound found in certain teas. L-theanine is known for its anxiolytic (anti anxiety) effects, and some people take L-theanine daily to help manage stress. In this 2019 study, researchers found that L-theanine could have a positive impact on stress-related symptoms and cognitive functions in health adults. Researchers gave participants L-theanine or a placebo, concluding that “L-theanine has the potential to promote mental health in the general population with stress-related ailments and cognitive impairments.”Griffonia simplicifolia has not been studied as much as ashwagandha. However, research suggests that Griffonia simplicifolia seeds can impact 5-HTP, a crucial chemical for weight loss. Griffonia simplicifolia contains 5-HTP, which is a precursor to serotonin. Some studies suggest Griffonia simplicifolia can indirectly impact depression, anxiety, appetite, sleep, and motion sickness, among other benefits, by impacting serotonin. In this 1999 study, for example, researchers found that Griffonia simplicifolia could be used to treat insomnia due to its impact on sleep quality.Resurge also contains zinc and magnesium, two crucial minerals important for sleep and other bodily functions.Overall, Resurge seems to work best as a sleep aid or anti-anxiety supplement. The formula contains ingredients that could help you get a deeper, more restful sleep while also reducing anxiety. There’s no evidence that Resurge can significantly raise human growth hormone (HGH) levels, however, or have other powerful effects. It’s an advanced weight loss sleep aid that could help your body enjoy a better, more effective sleep.No one needs to be told how vital sleep is to the human body and brain. And with all of the current 24/7 daily news cycles, non stop alerts and notifications, giving the body's ecosystem a steady supply of deep rest-enhancing ingredients, it should be a no-brainer when the facts are presented and the rise of Resurgehas been nothing short of incredible this entire year.What Does Resurge Supplement Cost?Now, one might think because Resurge is a best-selling natural sleep aid that is also a fat burning weight loss supplement might cost an arm and a leg. However, Resurge is priced between $34 and $49 per bottle, depending on how many bottles you order. This is an incredible value given how many potent natural plant-based extracts and herbal super-nutrients are found in the formula.Here’s how the Resurge pricing breaks down:Resurge Supplement Pricing * 1 Bottle: $49 + $9.95 Shipping * 3 Bottles: $117 + $9.95 Shipping * 6 Bottles: $204 + $9.95 ShippingEach bottle contains 120 capsules (30 servings). You take four capsules of Resurge per day.Please note that certain images of the bottle are labeled as “120 capsules / 120 servings”. Some customers purchase the formula believing they’re receiving a four month supply. It’s unclear if Resurge is misleading customers or if the formula is simply mislabeled, but the supplement always contains 120 capsules and 30 servings.The Resurge website claims the prices above are “special” prices not guaranteed after today. However, Resurge is always priced between $34 and $49 per bottle – every day.Resurge Refund PolicyResurge comes with a 60 day refund policy. You can request a complete refund (minus shipping) within 60 days of your purchase.Who’s Behind Resurge?Resurge was created by Lisa Etwell and John Barban, a brother and sister duo from Canada. John has a background in exercise physiology, sports medicine, and personal training. He has also worked with a range of supplement companies, including MuscleTech, NxLabs, and BlueStar Nutraceuticals, among others.There’s less information online about Lisa Etwell and her qualifications. However, in a 2011 interview, John and Lisa discussed how Lisa lost 47 pounds in 2010 by changing her mindset and changing her relationship with food. John appears to have formulated Resurge based on Lisa’s weight loss journey.There’s limited information online about where Resurge is made or where the ingredients are sourced. The company only provides one contact method – an email address:Email: support@resurge.comIs Resurge a Scam or Legit Sleep Aid?The answer to this vital question is twofold when it comes to properly evaluating Resurge supplementation as a whole. One, is obviously the effectiveness of how well it does burn fat, optimize HGH production and induce deep sleep overnight. The second is the fact of how to officially buy Resurge direct from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, Resurge currently has a solid rating on Amazon, but nearly a third of customers (33% of reviewers) have given it a 1-star rating. Reviewers claim to have not experienced any sleep or weight loss benefits after taking Resurge, with multiple reviewers claiming Resurge is a “scam”, “total rip off”, or advertised with “lies”. However, this appears to be quite misleading given the fact that the best and only place to buy the official product is directly from the Resurge.com website. To date, it appears any Resurge Amazon listing is to be considered fraudulent.To avoid getting scammed by Resurge, consumers need to be savvy and make the wise, smart decision of ordering directly from Resurge.com only. There are multiple Resurge Deep Sleep Formula Amazon.com marketplace listings from a variety of third party retailers that appear to be selling counterfeit Resurge pills. Of course, this is extremely troubling for customers of Resurge as there is no way to guarantee the authenticity or even purity of these Resurge pills. There are multiple unknown brands offering Resurge supplement on Amazon and other retail platforms, all of which appear to be fake and not John Barban's official Resurge deep sleep pills. On top of the fact that these Resurge scams are out there, users who do not buy the top selling weight loss sleep aid on the market also will not be guaranteed the money back clause John Barban generously offers every customer. Because John is so confident in the real Resurge pill results users are experiencing, and knowing that his company independently tests each batch for purity, potency and quality for being completely safe, Mr. Barban offers a full 2 month refund policy if not completely satisfied with its effects.Final WordIn closing, Resurge is a nutritional supplement that makes bold claims about its impact on human growth hormone (HGH) production, weight loss, and sleep.In reality, Resurge is a natural sleep aid with the ability to effectively induce the fat-burning REM stage of the sleep cycle each and every night. The Resurge weight loss formula contains ingredients that help you sleep (like melatonin, Griffonia simplicifolia, and magnesium) and may help relieve anxiety (like L-theanine and ashwagandha), although there’s no scientific evidence Resurge will help you “get skinnier overnight” or lose weight with no changes to diet or exercise outside of what John Barban mentions during the presentation found on the official website at Resurge.com.Overall, the Resurge deep sleep and HGH boosting formula for weight loss and metabolism boosting did not become the top selling, most recommended fat burning sleep pill for no reason. The formula contains strong doses of several active ingredients that have potent associations with helping the body relax and restore itself optimally.  Given the transparency, forward facing nature and effectiveness of the Resurge supplement, coupled with the risk-free nature of having 60-day money back guarantee return policy on all orders, buying Resurge directly from John Barban at Resurge.com is a wise decision to make if you are struggling with sleeping, weight management and hormonal metabolic imbalances.Act now and take full advantage of the incredible value Resurge deep sleep formula supplement has to offer right now.support@resurge.com KISSPR.COM PRESS RELEASE NEWS DISCLAIMER   This news has been published for the above source.

  • 51/82   South African white farmers and rival black protesters face off outside court hearing over farm murder case
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    White South African farmers and rival Black protesters hurled abuse and threats at each other on Friday ahead of a court hearing in a murder case that has exposed still simmering racial tensions 26 years after the end of apartheid. The killing of Brendan Horner, a white man whose body was found tied to a pole at his farm in Free State province, sparked riots at the start of this month, and prompted President Cyril Ramaphosa to make a statement urging South Africans to "resist attempts... to mobilise communities along racial lines". The farmers, who accuse the government of failing to protect them from violent crime, arrived in pick-up trucks ahead of the court hearing in the central town of Senekal for Horner's two suspected killers. The farmers mostly wore khaki shirts and shorts, a few wore military outfits, and at least one was armed. A group on motorbikes sporting long beards drove through Senekal, a trading town surrounded by dry, hilly countryside, some waving flags with crosses on. "We are getting tired now of all the farm murders," said Geoffrey Marais, 30, a livestock trader from Delmas, where a woman was strangled to death two weeks ago. "Enough is enough. They (the government) must start to prioritise these crimes."

  • 66/82   Macron 'using Brexit talks to boost standing in France'
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Emmanuel Macron is using the post-Brexit trade talks to shore up his domestic standing in France, UK sources have claimed, as they labelled talks with the EU “performance art”. British sources said the French president was prioritising concerns about his political future over agreeing a free trade agreement with the UK, as he came under pressure from Marine Le Pen, the far-Right leader. Ministers privately claim that it could take “years” for the UK to return to the negotiating table if the current transition period ends without a trade agreement on Jan 1. Senior Tories have warned EU leaders not to expect to reopen talks next spring – by which point they believe the UK could already have experienced the worst effects of ending the transition period without a deal. On Friday, Boris Johnson accused European leaders of having “abandoned the idea of a free trade deal” and told the country to “get ready” for a no-deal outcome in the negotiations after his Oct 15 deadline for reaching an agreement passed. Senior Brexiteers praised the move, with John Redwood, the former trade secretary, claiming: “The UK will prosper more with no deal than with a bad deal.” Lord Frost, the UK’s chief negotiator, told his counterpart, Michel Barnier, to call off a planned trip to London for talks this week, after EU leaders issued a joint summit statement calling on the UK to offer compromises on several areas, including fishing rights in UK waters.

  • 68/82   As lockdown eases, Israelis again gather against Netanyahu
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Thousands of Israelis demonstrated outside the official residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday night, resuming the weekly protest against the Israeli leader after emergency restrictions imposed as part of a coronavirus lockdown were lifted.  The protests were curtailed last month after Israel imposed new lockdown measures in response to a new virus outbreak.  The emergency regulations blocked Israelis from traveling to Jerusalem to protest and allowed people only to attend smaller demonstrations within one kilometer (half a mile) of their home.

    President Donald Trump leaned into fear tactics Saturday as he accused the left of trying to “erase American history, purge American values and destroy the American way of life' in a late reelection pitch to voters in Michigan.  “The Democrat Party you once knew doesn’t exist,” Trump told voters in Muskegon, Michigan, ahead of a rally in Wisconsin — two states in the Upper Midwest that were instrumental to his 2016 victory but may now be slipping from his grasp.  As he tried to keep more voters from turning against him, Trump sought to paint Democrats as “anti-American radicals” on a “crusade against American history.'

  • 72/82   Who Was 'El Padrino,' Godfather to Drug Cartel? Mexico's Defense Chief, U.S. Says
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    MEXICO CITY -- American law enforcement agents were listening in as Mexican cartel members chattered on a wiretap, talking about a powerful, shadowy figure known as El Padrino, or The Godfather.Agents had been closing in on him for months, suspecting that this central figure in the drug trade was a high-ranking official in the Mexican military.All of a sudden, one of the people under surveillance told his fellow cartel members that El Padrino happened to be on television at that very moment. The agents quickly checked to see who it was -- and found it was the Mexican secretary of defense, Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos, according to four American officials involved in the investigation.In that moment, the authorities say, they finally confirmed that the mystery patron of one of the nation's most violent drug cartels was actually the leader in charge of waging Mexico's war against organized crime.It was a stunning display of how deep the tendrils of organized crime run in Mexico, and on Thursday night Cienfuegos was taken into custody by the American authorities at the Los Angeles airport while traveling with his family.Even for Mexico, a country often inured to the unrelenting violence and corruption that have gripped it for years, the arrest was nothing less than extraordinary, piercing the veil of invincibility that the nation's armed forces have long enjoyed.Cienfuegos, Mexico's defense minister from 2012 to 2018, is being charged with laundering money and trafficking heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana from late 2015 through early 2017, according to an indictment unsealed in the Eastern District of New York on Friday.The charges are the result of a multiyear sting that investigators called Operation Padrino. Officials say that Cienfuegos helped the H-2 cartel, a criminal group that committed horrific acts of violence as part of its drug smuggling business, with its maritime shipments. In exchange for lucrative payouts, officials say, Cienfuegos also directed military operations away from the cartel and toward its rivals.The news not only casts a pall over Mexico's fight against organized crime, but also underscores the extent of corruption at the highest levels of government. Cienfuegos was defense minister throughout the administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto, who left office two years ago.The damage to Mexico is hard to overstate. The general's arrest comes only 10 months after another top Mexican official -- who once led the Mexican equivalent of the FBI -- was indicted in New York on charges of taking bribes while in office to protect the Sinaloa drug cartel, one of Mexico's most powerful criminal mafias.That official, Genaro Garcia Luna, served as the head of Mexico's Federal Investigation Agency from 2001 to 2005, and for the next six years was Mexico's secretary of public security, a Cabinet-level position. In that role, he had the task of helping the president at the time, Felipe Calderon, create the nation's strategy to battle drug cartels.If the men are convicted, it means that two of the highest-ranking and most widely respected commanders ever to oversee the war on drugs in Mexico were working with organized crime -- helping the very cartels that continue to kill record numbers of Mexicans.The two cases call into question the American role in the drug war as well. For years, U.S. officials have helped shape and fund Mexico's strategies, and they have relied on their Mexican counterparts for operations, intelligence and broad security cooperation. If the allegations hold up, some of those same Mexican leaders were playing a double game."The difficulty in working in Mexico where you have this level of corruption is that you never really know who you're working with," said Mike Vigil, a former chief of international operations for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. "There's always a concern that Mexican law enforcement could compromise you, or compromise an informant, or compromise an investigation."Both Garcia Luna and Cienfuegos served at the top of the government when homicides spiked to historic levels, drug cartels waged war and military operations were expanded.A mercurial presence, Cienfuegos symbolized the prominent role the military plays in Mexico. Commanders are granted an extraordinary amount of autonomy, seldom bowing to political pressures and typically enjoying protection by the president."There has never been a minister of defense in Mexico arrested," said Jorge Castañeda, a former Mexican foreign minister. "The minister of defense in Mexico is a guy that not only runs the army and is a military man, but he reports directly to the president. There is no one above him except the president."Because of that power and autonomy, analysts and others have long suspected some top leaders of corruption. But with their elevated status, no one dared investigate -- at least not in Mexico."This is a huge deal," said Alejandro Madrazo, a professor at CIDE, a university in Mexico. "The military has become way more corrupt and way more abusive since the war on drugs was declared, and for the first time they may not be untouchable -- but not by the Mexican government, by the American government."On Friday, responding to the arrest, Mexico's current president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, both defended the military and decried the bad actors in it. But it was unclear whether Lopez Obrador would step back from his heavy reliance on the military, whose role has expanded during his administration to include everything from construction to public security.Mexico's military has been a central part of the nation's domestic security since the crackdown on drug cartels began in 2006, with soldiers deployed to regions overrun by organized crime. The secretary of defense oversees that effort.The use of soldiers trained in combat but not in policing has brought problems well beyond corruption. With the military front and center in the fight against narcotics trafficking, the Mexican government has never built an effective police force.In December 2017, Mexico passed a security law cementing the military's role in fighting the drug war, outraging the United Nations and human rights groups. They warned that the measure would lead to abuses, leave troops on the streets indefinitely and militarize police activities for the foreseeable future.Cienfuegos played a crucial role in convincing politicians to pass the law, which gave the military legal permission to do what it had been doing for a decade without explicit authorization. At one point, he threatened to withdraw his troops from the streets, arguing they were not trained for domestic security and were exposed legally.But Cienfuegos also defended the military, saying it was the only institution effectively confronting organized crime. As drug violence rocketed, he asked again and again that the federal government provide a legal framework to protect the forces."Today the crimes we are dealing with are of another level and importance; they involve a lot of people, sometimes entire families, and we are acting without a legal frame," Cienfuegos said in March 2018. "Without it, our help is impeded."The military has repeatedly been singled out for human rights abuses and the use of excessive force, including accusations of extrajudicial killings that dogged the armed forces throughout Cienfuegos' tenure as defense minister.His arrest does not appear to have been a joint operation with the Mexican government. It reaches back to an American-led investigation in late 2013 of a Mexican drug cartel run by Fausto Isidro Meza Flores, a successor to the once powerful Beltran-Leyva drug organization, according to two American law enforcement officials.Even though a group of American agents was able at the time to identify Cienfuegos as a corrupt partner in the Meza Flores organization, there was pushback from other American and Mexican law enforcement agencies, and Cienfuegos was never fully investigated, one of the officials said.But by 2015, the official said, pressure to do something about Cienfuegos increased. At least two separate American wiretaps began to pick up chatter about a powerful underworld figure who was referred to as "Padrino" and was believed to be Cienfuegos.The wiretaps had targeted the Sinaloa cartel and the H-2 cartel, a smaller criminal organization connected to Meza Flores' group, the former official said.The U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn has in recent months become ground zero for cases related to official corruption in Mexico.Prosecutors there have not only charged Garcia Luna and two of his former associates, Ramon Pequeno and Luis Cardenas Palomino, but have also prosecuted Edgar Veytia, the former attorney general of the state of Nayarit. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison last October for conspiring with the H-2 cartel.The case against Cienfuegos helps illustrate in some ways why it has been so difficult for Mexico to take the lead in these investigations.Among the findings by U.S. authorities: Cienfuegos was actively corrupting other Mexican officials by introducing high-level cartel members to those willing to swap bribes for favors.At one point, court records say, he alerted the cartel that there was a U.S. investigation into their activities, prompting them to kill a fellow member they falsely believed to be sharing information with the authorities.This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2020 The New York Times Company
