Climate Change Causes Episode 1-It's All About Carbon

(Short 3 minute video at the site that I could not clip.)
Would you rather learn about climate change through public broadcasting or commercial driven television?

Episode 1: It's All About Carbon

When the subject is global warming, our mood is usually "uh-oh." Which makes sense, because a warmer Earth will lead to all kinds of disruptions and expensive adjustments that we could do without.

But there is another way to think about all of this.

What we have done here is a chemistry lesson, one that begins with the elemental cause of global warming: the behavior of the carbon atom.

And since carbon atoms are rather small, we have turned our atom into a cartoon. Just so you can see it better.

This is the introductory segment of a five-part series that explains how carbon atoms form bonds, break apart and create the conditions that can lead to global warming. Since most of us are beginners when it comes to elemental chemistry, this is a lesson in five, easy-to-grasp steps. And grasping, by the way, is a big part of our story.

In this, the first lesson, we introduce our atom.

The Power of Half

A model for the 1 percenters (ref. Jamie Johnson)
There is a good video explanation at the site.

Through The Power of Half, our family set out to make a small difference in the world and ended up transforming ourselves. We found that creating a "half" project was an amazing powerful tool to building deeper connections and trust among us. While the book tells our family story, this site is designed to help you learn more about giving and hopefully to better bond your family, community or any group through a unified sense of purpose.

Jefferson vs. Lincoln: Who is your hero?

This is a great reminder of the original intent of the Founders of our Country. It promised the world the safest and most secure form of liberty at the least expense of resources and bloodshed, but I believe it has failed.

Getting back to basics is a way to step ahead. After all, it is hard to rid the world of that which is self-evident and resonates in the heart of every lover of freedom. Lincoln's way has proven to fail and the corruption is so vast today that the world waits to see if it can be stopped.

July 4 is a good day to make a political resolution to do something different this year. If we don't change, how can we expect to reap something different than what we have?

Perhaps the best evidence of how American history was rewritten, Soviet
style, in the post-1865 era is the fact that most Americans seem to
be unaware that "Independence Day" was originally intended
to be a celebration of the colonists’ secession from the British
empire. Indeed, the word secession is not even a part of the vocabulary
of most Americans, who more often than not confuse it with "succession."
The Revolutionary War was America’s first war of secession.
"If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve
this Union or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed
as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated
where reason is left to combat it." (In sharp contrast, in
his first inaugural address, Lincoln promised an "invasion"
with massive "bloodshed" (his words) of any state that
failed to collect the newly-doubled federal tariff rate by seceding
from the union

Is Someone []You Know] Spying On Your Cell-Phone Calls?

Technology changes so fast it is hard to keep up with it.
clipped from

How suspicious spouses, protective parents, and concerned companies are turning to cheap and hard-to-detect commerical spyware apps to monitor your mobile communications.

Sometime in early 2007, Richard Mislan, an assistant professor of cyberforensics at Purdue University, started getting phone calls and e-mails from people around the world—all looking for help with the same problem. “They thought someone was listening in on their cell-phone calls,” he says. “They wanted to know what they could do to confirm it was happening.”

what they can effectively do, for as little as $15 or as much as several hundred, is track a person with a precision once relegated to federal authorities. “Not only can you look at a person’s e-mail or listen to their calls, in some cases you can also just turn on the microphone [on a smart phone] and listen to what the person is doing any time you want,”

What to Do When They Come for You

"In an ideal world what prevails is "the truth." Therefore, if you are innocent, you have nothing to fear since ultimately you will be found innocent. But the real world is not ideal; and what really counts in this world of ours is the "perception of truth." Powerful governmental institutions with insurmountable resources at their disposal in terms of skills, money, manpower, organization, computer systems, etc. can create a perception of truth that ends you up in prison—even though you are innocent. This is why there are innocent people on Death Row. Consequently, the only prudent answer, when interrogated by government officials, is to exercise your Right to Remain Silent, and request an attorney, specially, during the current times of political agitation and war hysteria."

Is This The Reason for 500,000 Coffins Outside Atlanta?

We live in a political world
Where courage is a thing of the past
Houses are haunted, children are unwanted
The next day could be your last

We live in a political world
The one we can see and can feel
But there’s no one to check, it’s all a stacked deck
We all know for sure that it’s real

Toxic Oil Spill Rains Warned Could Destroy North America

A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with “total destruction”.

Russian scientists are basing their apocalyptic destruction assessment due to BP’s use of millions of gallons of the chemical dispersal agent known as Corexit 9500 which is being pumped directly into the leak of this wellhead over a mile under the Gulf of Mexico waters and designed, this report says, to keep hidden from the American public the full, and tragic, extent of this leak that is now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day.

Israel Smothering Jewish Dissent+

Peace and human rights activist in Israel are having "Their leaders arrested and detained on several occasions."

Some Israeli politicians are calling for further restrictions still, like quoted in the bottom of this clip: Knesset action.

Yesterday one of the few Arab members of the Israel parliament, the Knesset was opposed by a mob of other members of the Knesset when she wanted to speak.

When she finally made it to the podium, her speech was stopped by interruptions and security led her away.

There is, of course, a double standard here: the Israeli who illegal keep expanding the settlements are drenched in money from the US, but there is no suggestion of restricting them.

We may not realize this; it's hidden: But the current 'flavor,' of Zionism is not the only one. It didn't have to be this way.

It's like the USA if we had a President Cheney or some other Darth Vader in power.

Nazi Zionism is not the only way to go.
The Movement to Smother Solidarity -- From Israel to Ethiopia to Honduras
Everyone now knows the Israeli navy committed a machine-gun massacre on a ship in international waters that was carrying humanitarian aid for the blockaded people of Gaza, who Israeli officials joke they have "put on a diet".
The boat was armed with Holocaust survivors,
Nobel Peace Laureates
food, medicine, cement to rebuild bombed-out homes
the Israeli government is slowly obstructing and silencing the organizations within Israel that are trying to get the country on to a saner and safer path

one of the human rights groups' foremost critics demanded to know: "What right do they have to criticize the Israeli government?"

A new law is being passed that would strip any group receiving a shekel from other governments of their tax-exempt status, and require them by law to describe themselves as paid agents of a foreign government every time they made a public statement.

Irish News on Israel Seizing Aid Ship

Facts the U.S. media misses are noted here:

1. International humanitarian law prohibits starvation of civilians as a method of warfare is also prohibited to impose collective punishment on civilians,"

2. Israel's blockade of Gaza was illegal

Not only are these core ideas not presented in all of the U.S. media I've seen -- the spin is actually how the Israeli Massacre at Sea was all the fault of the aid workers, or Hamas.

We keep hearing the big lie and not the truth.

Who the heck, even, is Rachel Corrie?

Now we find out (because I didn't know) she was a USA female college student who sat down in front of an Israeli IDF bulldozer, trying to prevent the ongoing demolition of Palestinian homes.

The bulldozer ran over her.

There was no other way of removing a young woman from in front of a bulldozer? She couldn't be dragged away?

No: Like the Massacre at Sea we see clearly - it's always the 'hard fist,' the harshest response, the Nazi solution.

Seized 'Rachel Corrie' ship
Former UN assistant secretary general Denis Halliday and Nobel peace laureate Mairéad Maguire were among the Irish citizens on board the 1,200-tonne ship, which was shadowed by Israeli ships since dawn.

The crew  had rejected a deal to unload its cargo in Israel and accompany it across the border.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay today said Israel's blockade of Gaza was illegal and should be lifted, reiterating calls for an investigation into Israel's raid on aid supply ships this week.

"International humanitarian law prohibits starvation of civilians as a method of warfare is also prohibited to impose collective punishment on civilians," Ms Pillay said.

the ship would have no part in a deal that involved legitimising the siege of Gaza.

Why Don't More Women Sue Their Rapists?

Many people are intimidated by the legal system and they are afraid of the cost. I solve these problems.

Our spirit is in discord until we have a sense of justice. When we fail to exercise this built in mechanism that warns us that something is wrong, a nation such as ours (free) becomes all the more at risk to tyrants wanting to trample over all our rights. By finding the means and courage to resist the evil and seek justice you help preserve a free nation.

Because the Supreme Court took away part of the Violence Against Women Act.

When the Supreme Court struck down a portion of the Violence Against Women Act 10 years ago this month, the justices made it clear they thought victims of sexual violence had the right to sue their attackers. They just didn't think federal court was the place to do it.

The rationale behind VAWA, which Congress passed in 1994, was simple enough: Rape, a crime committed mostly against women and girls, constituted a brutal violation of their civil rights. Lawsuits could help victims hold rapists accountable.
The federal law also made it easier for women to sue by extending the statute of limitations to four years.
A 2004 study of sex crimes in Philadelphia and Kansas City, Mo., found that only half of the cases that resulted in an arrest were prosecuted.
Victims need the weapon of a lawsuit because the criminal courts don't always serve their interests.

How would my work stand up against the work of others in my field?

This article does a good job at challenging you to do your best.
Before you go running off to what you think are greener pastures, make sure that your own is not just as green or perhaps even greener.
Take the time to stand off and look at your work as a stranger might

You might also ask yourself, How good am I at what I’m presently doing? Do you know all there is to know about your work? Would you call yourself a first-class professional at your work? How would your work stand up against the work of others in your line?

The first thing we need to do to become a “diamond miner” is to break away from the crowd and quit assuming that because people in the millions are living that way, it must be the best way. It is not the best way. It’s the average way.
There are better ways to do what you are presently doing. What are they?
How good am I at what I’m presently doing?
Can I call myself a first-class professional at my work?
How would my work stand up against the work of others in my field?
Do I know all I can about my industry or profession?

Empire Pathology: More US soldiers commit suicide than killed in action

clipped from

Here is a shocking statistic that you won’t hear in most western news media: over the past nine years, more US military personnel have taken their own lives than have died in action in either the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. These are official figures from the US Department of Defence, yet somehow they have not been deemed newsworthy to report. Last year alone, more than 330 serving members of the US armed forces committed suicide – more than the 320 killed in Afghanistan and the 150 who fell in Iraq (see

Since 2001, when Washington launched its so-called war on terror, there has been a dramatic year-on-year increase in US military suicides, particularly in the army, which has borne the brunt of fighting abroad. Last year saw the highest total number since such records began in 1980. Prior to 2001, the suicide rate in the US military was lower than that for the general US population; now, it is nearly double the national average.

New Phishing Scheme: Hi, I’m Stranded In London and...

It is good practice to routinely change your passwords to minimize this sort of thing from happening. It is also wise these days, and affordable, to protect your family with ID Theft Shield.

5% of ID Thieves are caught, mainly because no one has the means to fight back.

I offer Identity Theft Shield for about 40 cents a day. Learn more by watching this video - A midlength spot on the growth of identity theft and related criminal activity, as well as how to protect yourself. Featuring former SC Representative and identity theft expert John Gardner, this video explains how personal information is leaked, the damage that victims suffer, and the value and opportunity to be found in services designed to protect one's identity. My contact info is on the video.

I really don't mean to inconvenience you right now but I made a quick trip to the UK for the holidays, and I lost a bag which contains my passport and credit cards.

I am the real person mentioned in this email and I thank you for posting this so more people will not be fooled. I have a lot of lovely friends who have been calling me non-stop to see if I am okay. I am fine. Someone clearly hacked into not only my aol account but my facebook and collected a lot of nearly believeable information about me.

Polish President Plane Crash: Video Author Assassinated?

The author (Adrij Mendierej) of the video of the plane crash which killed the Polish top brass and the Polish president was stabbed near Kijow, and transported in critical condition to the Kijow hospital. Three unidentified individuals unplugged him from his life support system and stabbed him a further three times, it is alleged.
The video that the author released was deleted from youtube, but a copy is now available (below). Four gunshots can be heard towards the end of the video, and speculators have said that these were shots by the military, finishing off any survivors of the crash. The Polish State prosecutor is now examining this issue.
  • Poland refused to purchase the swine flu vaccine;

  • Poland was unwilling to allow the Zloty to strengthen against the Euro and didn't want to join the EU;

  • Poland's bank governor refused to take loans from the IMF;

  • Poland is the only country in Europe whose economy is growing (2.7% this year), with relatively little debt.
