Regarding: New Organ Discovered In Human Body After It Was Previously Missed By Scientists
Prime Minister and Premier Edition of BC: 5 days ago it was reported scientists discovered a new organ in “our” bodies!
Just imagine – it won’t be long now! A new organ for drug company execs. to come up with a coordinating disease and its drug “a-company-meant” name too! Does that then mean that scientists have also come up with a lucrative “treatment” governments can claim tax shares on?

Interstitium: New organ discovered in human body after it was previously missed by scientists
‘Interstitium’ acts as a shock absorber for vital tissues and could improve understanding of cancer spread
Josh Gabbatiss Science Correspondent
5 days ago
Scientists have identified a new human organ hiding in plain sight, in a discovery they hope could help them understand the spread of cancer within the body.
Layers long thought to be dense, connective tissue are actually a series of fluid-filled compartments researchers have termed the “interstitium”.
These compartments are found beneath the skin, as well as lining the gut, lungs, blood vessels and muscles, and join together to form a network supported by a mesh of strong, flexible proteins.
New analysis published in the journal Scientific Reports is the first to identify these spaces collectively as a new organ and try to understand their function.
Remarkably, the interstitium had previously gone unnoticed despite being one of the largest organs in the human body.
The newfound organ, here beneath the top layer of skin, is also in tissue layers lining the gut, lungs, blood vessels and muscles. The organ is a bodywide network of interconnected, fluid-filled compartments supported by a meshwork of strong, flexible proteins (Jill Gregory)
The team behind the discovery suggest the compartments may act as “shock absorbers” that protect body tissues from damage.
Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center medics Dr David Carr-Locke and Dr Petros Benias came across the interstitium while investigating a patient’s bile duct, searching for signs of cancer.
They noticed cavities that did not match any previously known human anatomy, and approached New York University pathologist Dr Neil Theise to ask for his expertise.
The researchers realized traditional methods for examining body tissues had missed the interstitium because the “fixing” method for assembling medical microscope slides involves draining away fluid – therefore destroying the organ’s structure.
Instead of their true identity as bodywide, fluid-filled shock absorbers, the squashed cells had been overlooked and considered a simple layer of connective tissue.
Having arrived at this conclusion, the scientists realized this structure was found not only in the bile duct, but surrounding many crucial internal organs.
“This fixation artefact of collapse has made a fluid-filled tissue type throughout the body appear solid in biopsy slides for decades, and our results correct for this to expand the anatomy of most tissues,” said Dr Theise.

Regarding: When 100% “Covered Every Thing”… Now This Is Overkill at 300%
PM: “We won’t do business with a company that’s busy trying to sue us and put our aerospace workers out of business,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last month.
As mentioned before, American companies have been target marketing to our children and children all over the world to the extent that can be called grooming aids! American adverts, and TV shows “how to’s” show children including adults the power of suggestion urge to buy accumulated debt etc. American companies have groomed coached invaded overtaken and taken out taken care of our children’s future, and in doing so, as a matter of course sabotage’s Canada’s domestic economy!
That is the “behind” of a backroom “free – trade economy, ode to toilet N.A.F.TA.”! So you say “we” what do you mean by “we”? It certainly does not include Canadian Family’s children who are literally being left out in the cold with regards to their Canadian Human Rights and Freedoms From corporated rights to interfere in security freedom of expression – when that expression is drilled into children’s brains how about those mind boggling video games that had children kill themselves and each other, then PM Mulroney ignored the attack on children what was happening and sided with corporations and blamed the victim – these vulnerable children – tough love for kids – then and now – eh?
What Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should say this month: We Withdraw Canada’s Family and Children from the NAFTA bulls-eye!
Try hitting the nail on the head this time, eh, by protecting best interests of our children Family and Canada with “We won’t do business with a country full of companies that are busy trying to take a future for our children from the competition before they’re old enough to be considered competition!”

Boeing v. Bombardier: Tariff is now 300%
The U.S. Commerce Department has heaped another big tariff on Bombardier’s new C Series jet — a win for Boeing.
The department’s International Trade Administration said Friday that it would recommend a 79.82% tariff on the import of each roughly 110-seat Canadian airliner.
The penalty stems from an allegation by Boeing that Bombardier sold the C Series to Delta Air Lines last year at “absurdly low prices” to undercut Boeing and win business.
The ruling comes on top of 219.63% penalty recommended by Commerce’s ITA on September 26. The agency found that national and provincial governments in Canada had given improper subsidies to Bombardier when the company was struggling several years ago.
A final decision on the tariffs will be made by the International Trade Commission, a quasi-judicial U.S. government agency. That ruling is expected in February.
Friday’s ruling means Delta or any U.S. airline that buys the Bombardier plane would have to pay what is essentially a tax of 300% on its purchases. If the tariffs go forward, Delta would be faced with canceling its orders of the jetliner or passing the additional cost onto customers.
Bombardier has fiercely denied it received subsidies and unfairly lowered the price of its CS100 airliner as part of a deal to sell Delta as many as 125 planes.
Bombardier called the ruling “an egregious overreach and misapplication” of trade law. It said the ruling would hurt the American aerospace industry, jobs and fliers.
Bombardier and Delta contend that the model it purchased does not compete with anything Boeing produces. Delta said it was “confident” Bombardier will prevail in the end because no U.S. manufacturer makes an aircraft that competes with the CS100. The first CS100s arrive in Delta’s fleet in spring 2018.
Boeing praised the latest ruling. “These duties are the consequence of a conscious decision by Bombardier to violate trade law and dump their C Series aircraft to secure a sale,” the company said.
Boeing alleges that Delta is paying $19.6 million per plane, putting a final price tag at $78.4 million with the tariffs included. The list price of the CS100 is $79.5 million, but airlines typically receive discounts of 40% to 60%.
“The Commerce Department’s approach throughout this investigation has completely ignored aerospace industry realities,” Bombardier said.
What Delta is paying for the planes isn’t a mystery. It was disclosed as part of the investigation but redacted from public documents reviewed by CNN. Two people familiar with the deal said each plane was in the “high $20 millions.”
The trade feud has sparked a diplomatic row between the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Canada has threatened to kill a deal to buy Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornets, and the U.K. said future Royal Air Force purchases from Boeing might be threatened should the tariffs be imposed.
“We won’t do business with a company that’s busy trying to sue us and put our aerospace workers out of business,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last month.
Bombardier’s aerospace division employs 28,500 worldwide, including more than 4,000 in Northern Ireland, where the jet’s wings are manufactured. The airplane is also half produced by U.S. aerospace companies, including United Technologies which supplies the jet’s Pratt & Whitney engines.

Regarding N.A.F.T.A. – Let the U.S.A. KEEP TOUGH LOVE FOR CHILDREN MULRONEY AND THIS IS BUSINESS KNOW-THING TO DOO WITH HUMAN RIGHTS CHRETIEN
P.M. TAKE FAMILY PEOPLE INDIVIDUALS OFF CORPORATE CANNIBAL SPLATTER PLATTER DEAL!
Regarding N.A.F.T.A. – Let the U.S.A. KEEP TOUGH LOVE FOR CHILDREN MULRONEY AND THIS IS BUSINESS KNOW-THING TO DOO WITH HUMAN RIGHTS CHRETIEN – coined phrases glib gibberish such as – what you don’t no will kill you- youthisms!
Isn’t about time that p.m.’s stop following glibberishness such as take a long walk with meez off a short peer trade deals where the path to the psycho is the only outcome – following foreigners business enter-prizes such as privatized health-care business ventura hi!way of if you can’t pay you’re escorted off hospital grounds for dismal health forecasts?
Free Trade Agreements? THE HOW DOO of How Doo incomers qualify for global economics? Blow the competition out of the water?
Time for tough love for the US and the US getting rid of its own nuclear power? To bee or not to be, for “nuclear” power points to not just to the US wazoo! Canada will be impacted, they’ll side wind and blindside us – maybe its knot in the way the wind blows?
It’s time to LEAD P.M. and Pull Canada out of NAFTA and dump the trump 220% tariff is the NAFTA AGREE MEANT. Let’s face the fact that Canada Canadian Families do not need to participate in any more bad trade deals with its use of commercialisms such as those that are perverse foreigners grooming techniques “using” children to market to children such as those that target children “it’s like shooting fish in and out of a perverted pork barrel” in actuality doing more harm than good “corporates friendly firing, squad” taking the low grounded path to the psycho cheap talk cheap treatment this is no cure for the rotten foundations of a bad deal!

Trump Talks Tough on China and Mexico, but Trade Actions Hit Canada
OTTAWA — While President Trump has reserved his harshest words on trade for Mexico and China, Canada, one of America’s closest allies, has emerged as a major pressure point on trade, with the countries’ leaders trading barbs over lumber, dairy products, airplanes, and even magazine paper.
In the latest move, the Trump administration imposed a huge tariff on a new aircraft made by Montreal’s Bombardier to compensate for what it deemed unfair subsidies by Canadian governments.
The focus on Canada reflects the complexities that Mr. Trump faces in remaking the global rules of trade.
He has threatened punitive tariffs on imported goods and vowed to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States. He has promised to level the playing field with China and Mexico.
But aggressively targeting China could disrupt the global supply chain, raising costs for American manufacturers. It could also inflame geopolitical tensions at a time when Washington needs Beijing’s help in dealing with North Korea.
Relations with Mexico are already beleaguered over clashes on immigration, while taking on trade often means taking on exports from plants owned by American corporations.
The sheer volume of trade with Canada makes it an easy target for actions against individual companies or industries. And the economy’s relatively small size, along with its economic and military dependence on the United States, gives Canada little strength for punching back.
The Bombardier case is just one in a long series of trade-related actions. Canada is rehashing the North American Free Trade Agreement, throwing the future of its businesses and workers into flux. The United States has imposed duties on softwood lumber, one of Canada’s most iconic exports, while weighing measures that would clamp down on Canadian exports of steel, aluminum and solar panels.
“Canadians view this as poking Canada in the eye,” said Jerry Dias, the head of Unifor, the country’s large private sector union, which represents some Bombardier workers. “Canadians who view the U.S. as our natural ally are now wondering what’s going on.”
The trade case against Bombardier, which was brought by the American aerospace giant Boeing, is typically a dry and routine affair. It centers on government subsidies and accusations of unfairly low sales prices.
But now trade is politically charged.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada has asked the American president to intervene to persuade Boeing to drop the case against Bombardier. Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain joined the chorus of criticism against the United States, since the wings for the aircraft, the CSeries, are made in Northern Ireland. It also soured the mood for the latest round of Nafta negotiations, which finished on Wednesday in Ottawa.
Speaking from the conclusion of the talks, Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s foreign affairs minister and the lead minister on the Nafta talks, said the country would “fight very, very hard” when it came to Bombardier. Ms. Freeland said she had raised the issue with Robert Lighthizer, the United States trade representative.
“I do want to remind Canadians that aggressive actions and aggressive decisions by commerce are nothing new,” she added, a reference to the United States Commerce Department, which imposed the tariff on the Bombardier aircraft. “They are certainly familiar to us from the softwood lumber dispute.”
After an official visit to China, Wilbur Ross, the secretary of commerce, told a group of reporters in Hong Kong on Wednesday that Boeing had initiated the case, not the Trump administration. But he nonetheless emphasized that it was emblematic of the president’s aggressive posture on trade.
Mr. Ross said the administration had been “much more enforcement oriented” than its predecessors. “I wouldn’t be surprised if that trend continues,” he said.
For Bombardier, the decision to impose tariffs of more than 200 percent on the CSeries aircraft creates huge uncertainty for a company that was betting on the product to improve its fortunes.
The duties could be increased or ultimately eliminated in a series of rulings in the coming months. But they go into force immediately, tripling the jet’s price in the United States and most likely chilling future sales in the market it was meant to serve.
Such trade actions could have a spillover effect. Bombardier estimates that work related to the new airliner will eventually create 22,000 jobs at American suppliers, in states like Kansas and West Virginia. The company employs 4,300 aerospace workers in Northern Ireland and 17,000 in Canada.
“I don’t know why they are doing what they are doing in the United States, but I’m worried that it might hit us here,” said Nathalie Leclerc, a bartender in Montreal, Bombardier’s hometown. “Bombardier might cut jobs and production.”
While international trade rules limit Canada’s ability to retaliate, Mr. Trudeau has been trying to use a military deal to influence Boeing. The prime minister has repeatedly suggested that Canada would not close a 6.4 billion Canadian dollar ($5.2 billion) deal to buy F-18 fighter jets from Boeing if it continued with its Bombardier complaint.
There are currently no active trade cases in Canada involving American imports. But the United States administration is considering a range of actions that could ensnare Canadian exports.
Along with cases against Canadian lumber and Bombardier, the United States has imposed tariffs for illegal subsidies on magazine paper. It is also weighing sweeping restrictions on Canadian exports of steel and aluminum, as well as solar products.
The Bombardier ruling heightened tensions at the Nafta talks. Even before the decision, Canadian officials already appeared frustrated by American negotiators’ failure to put forward specific text on some of the president’s proposals.
“Without a formal position tabled, we can’t respond to it,” Ms. Freeland said.
Mr. Lighthizer said that the United States had discussed all of its goals with Canada and Mexico and was preparing in the next round to propose specific wording on more difficult topics, like requiring more goods to be made in the United States.
Chad Bown, a trade analyst at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said the Trump administration may see conflicts like those over airplanes and softwood lumber as additional points to be traded away at the negotiating table.
“The Trump administration may see this as a type of leverage in Nafta,” he said. “Now they have a potential bargaining chip that they didn’t have before to try to extract something from Canada.”
But the disputes combined with Mr. Trump’s protectionist approach may be prompting questions in Canada about the value of trade deals.
“Canada, in general, has gone from trade skeptical to trade embracing,” said Shachi Kurl, the executive director of the Angus Reid Institute, a nonprofit polling organization. “Now things have swung back a little bit.
The frustrations go back decades.
When Canada entered a trade agreement with the United States in 1989 that was expanded later into Nafta, the lumber dispute was also active. The Conservative government at the time promised that the deal would free Canada from such trade cases. It ended up with a system known in Nafta as Chapter 19, which allows parties to appeal the type of duties that were imposed on Bombardier.
As part of the current negotiations, the Trump administration wants to eliminate that measure. Given the Bombardier outcome, Canada’s opposition is likely to become more entrenched.
“We have forest workers and forest-dependent communities saying why does this keep happening to us?’” John Horgan, the premier of British Columbia, said of the softwood lumber spat, which is in its fifth round since 1982. Canada has ultimately been successful in all of them to date.
At the restaurant in a Husky gas station in Williams Lake, British Columbia, a lumber town, there was resignation and irritation about going through the trade dispute all over again.
“The softwood lumber deal? That’s a Trump thing,” said Charlie Grover, who drives a lumber truck. “We know that they won’t win in court. So eventually we’ll be back to no tariff.”
