Cure for dengue fever

Cure for Dengue - Papaya Juice

" ... I would like to share this interesting discovery from a classmate's son who has just recovered from dengue fever. Apparently, his son was in the critical stage when his pallet counts dropped to 15 after15 liters of blood transfusion.
His father was so worried that he sought another friend's recommendation which saved the life of his son. He told that he gave his son raw juice of the papaya leaves. From a pallet count of 45 after 20 liters of blood transfusion, and after drinking the raw papaya leaf juice, his pallet count jumps instantly to 135. Even the doctors were surprised. After the second day he was discharged. He asked me to pass this good news around.

Take tow pieces of raw papaya leaves (no stem or sap), clean, pound and squeeze them with filter cloth getting just about one tablespoon per leaf. Serve two tablespoon once a day. Do not boil, cook or rinse with hot water as it may lose its strength.

It is very bitter and you have to swallow it like Won Low Kat. But it works.

You may have heard this elsewhere but if not I am glad to inform you that papaya juice is a natural cure for dengue fever that is rampant these days and reported death toll is rising in Lahore after Karachi and Peshawar. ... "

Myth of Ancient Nuclear War

Was the ancient indian war of mahabharatha a nuclear war?? Did ancient indians use weapons if mass destruction (WMD) while in the west humans were still in their primitive settlements?

The architect of modern atomic bomb who was in charge of the manhattan project was asked by a student after the manhattan explosion, “How do you feel after having exploded the first atomic bomb on earth”. Oppenheimer’s reply for the question was , “not first atomic bomb, but first atomic bomb in modern times”. He strongly believed that nukes were used in ancient india. what made oppenheimer believe that it was a nuclear war was the accurate descriptions of the weapons used in the mahabharatha war in the epic which match with that of modern nuclear weapons.

Mohenjadaro and Harappa
Scientists Davenport and Vincenti put forward a theory saying the ruins were of a nuclear blast as they found big stratums of clay and green glass. High temperature melted clay and sand and they hardened immediately afterwards. Similar stratums of green glass can also found in Nevada deserts after every nuclear explosion.

Radio Active Ash
A layer of radioactive ash was found in Rajasthan, India. It covered a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. The research occurred after a very high rate of birth defects and cancer was discovered in the area. The levels of radiation registered so high on investigators’ gauges that the Indian government cordoned off the region. Scientists then apparently unearthed an ancient city where they found evidence of an atomic blast dating back thousands of years: from 8,000 to 12,000 years.

The blast was said to have destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people.
Archeologist Francis Taylor stated that etchings in some nearby temples he translated suggested that they prayed to be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city.
Crater Near Bombay
Another curious sign of an ancient nuclear war in India is a giant crater near Bombay. The nearly circular 2,154-metre-diameter Lonar crater (left image), located 400 kilometers northeast of Bombay and aged at less than 50,000 years old, could be related to nuclear warfare of antiquity. No trace of any meteoric material, etc., has been found at the site or in the vicinity, and this is the world’s only known “impact” crater in basalt...  Full post >>

Precession and the Golden Age: How Much Did the Ancients Know?

By: Archaeoastronomer and Author
    In 1901, divers working off the Greek island of Antikythera found the remains of a 2,000-year-old clocklike mechanism. Now in the Greek National Archaeological Museum, the extraordinary find is a complex assembly of twenty or more precision gears designed to compute the motions of the Sun, Moon and planets. Nothing comparable is known from ancient scientific texts, and from a traditional historic point of view, such a mechanism should not have existed for at least another thousand years. The discovery of the Antikythera Device is equivalent to finding a supercomputer on a farm in the 18th century.
    Archaeological finds that upset our current understanding of history are growing increasingly common. The incredible discovery of six pyramids in Caral, Peru, is a case in point. These structures that surround a huge plaza and circular kivas (no one knows what they were used for) have been reliably dated to 4,700 B.C. That is 400 years before the accepted date of the Great pyramid at Giza. Like the Greek computing device, they are out of place and out of time sequence with our current understanding of history. It was not expected that ancient people in South America built pyramids before the Egyptians.
    The Antikythera device, ancient pyramids, astronomically aligned megaliths and similar structures found around the world were apparently built to monitor the movement of the heavens – at least that could be one of their uses. The vast majority of Neolithic tombs built prior to about 1000 B.C. in Europe and North Africa; ziggurats of the Middle East; henges and great stone markers in Britain and around the world, appear to be oriented toward the equinox, solstices or four cardinal points. With this preponderance of evidence it now seems likely these ancient builders not only understood the motions of the heavens but most likely tracked the precession of the equinox as well.

Precession of the Equinox

The “precession of the equinox” is the slow movement of the equinox (that point in time each Spring and Fall when night and day are of equal length – and the Earth’s axis sits at an exact ninety degree angle to the Sun) against the background constellations.
    Today, on the first day of spring––the Vernal Equinox– if you look due east at sunrise, you can see the constellation Pisces is fading from view and Aquarius is rising to take its place. This is what is meant by the “dawning of the age of Aquarius”. It is not just an astrological colloquialism but a convenient way for layman or astronomer alike to note the rough position of the equinox relative to the twelve constellations of the zodiac.
    The equinox moves slowly taking about 24,000 years, more or less, to precess through all twelve signs and return to its starting position. Plato called this cyclical time period the “Great Year”. The motion of the equinox is how one tells the time within this great cycle.
    Although most historians and scientists still teach that the precession of the equinox was not discovered until about 150 B.C. by Hipparcus, that is now being questioned. Giorgio de Santillana, the late professor of the history of science at MIT, documented in his book, Hamlet’s Mill, that this cycle was well known to dozens of ancient cultures around the world. In fact he tells us the Great Year is one of the most prevalent myths of all time, as popular as the great flood myth.

Dark and Golden Ages
Ancestral people acknowledged the precession of the equinox and believed the Great Year had its seasons. Similar to yet different than the seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter in the solar year - the Great Year was thought to be punctuated with a Golden Age of incredible beauty at one end, and a Dark Age of misery at the other. The Vedic Indians and early Mediterranean cultures had different names for these periods of the Great Year, and the Greeks simply called them the Iron, Bronze, Silver and Golden Ages. Thus, there was a valid reason why we find ancient cultures so intent on tracking the precession of the equinox.
    Just as we want to know our place in the solar year with its changing conditions, ancient people wanted to know their place in the Great Year. Many of the ancient myths, before the last Dark Age, spoke of a long lost Golden Age and lamented the coming of the Dark Age and its pending loss of culture and knowledge.
    And this is what an examination of the archaeological record shows. Around 4,000 to 5,000 years ago Mohenjodaro and the Indus Valley were in full bloom; the megaliths of Britain and the great pyramids in Caral, Peru, and Giza were newly constructed; the ziggurats, gardens, dams and great water systems of Mesopotamia were fully functioning. A vast agricultural civilization also existed within the Amazon and much of the Americas, and the amazing fifty-ton, carved architectural columns of Gobekli, Turkey , were already 5,000 years old! ...

the true classic of terrorism

New York Times
September 11, 2005

''The Secret Agent,'' Joseph Conrad's 1907 novel about an anarchist plot to blow up the Royal Observatory at Greenwich -- in fact, a scheme by a secret police agent to stir up a government backlash -- has acquired a kind of cult status as the classic novel for the post-9/11 age. Conrad's villain, the Professor, who never goes out without a glass vial of high explosives in his breast pocket and a detonator in his palm, has been taken to be a prescient portrait of the terrorists who menace our own world.

Few remark on Joseph Conrad's ''other'' great novel of terrorism, ''Under Western Eyes,'' published in 1911. Perhaps the problem is that it rhapsodizes not about detonators of chemicals but on the explosive materials of the soul -- and also that its terrorists are a bit too close to home: educated, middle-class, lofty in their delusions, yet far from the satisfying diagnosis of simple psychopathy.

[ ... ]

Though often invoked earnestly, ''The Secret Agent'' is essentially a satire of British and European attitudes toward terrorism and counterterrorism. Except for a handful of characters, the novel is populated by allegorical cartoons -- the wily Russian Mr. Vladimir, the meddling flatfoot Chief Inspector Heat, the haughty British aristocrat Sir Ethelred -- and the plot, deliberately small-scale, is based on a real-life, fairly harmless incident that occurred when an anarchist tried to blow up the Royal Observatory in 1894. In the novel, the attack is concocted by a secret agent of a foreign power in order to make the British change their liberal ways and crack down on terrorists. (This part of the story seems stunningly up-to-date: ''England lags,'' says the diplomat who hatches the plot. ''This country is absurd with its sentimental regard for individual liberty.'') The real evil of the novel emerges from the exigencies of counterterrorism, not the anarchist plotting itself.

Conrad began writing during the first great terrorist wave of modern times. From 1881 to 1901, the death toll from anarchist attacks included two American presidents (Garfield and McKinley), one French president (Carnot), a Spanish prime minister (Canovas), an Austrian empress (Elizabeth) and an Italian king (Umberto I). Paris anarchists hurled their ''engines'' on the floor of the Bourse and in crowded theaters and cafes.

Yet despite its high profile in Europe, terrorist violence had a far greater scope within the czarist empire. The first generation of Russian terrorists came out of the 60's counterculture -- the 1860's in Russia bearing a striking similarity to the 1960's in the United States, with Russian students growing their hair, following gurus who extolled the ''new man'' and starting communes. Some of the students fell into the emerging terrorist underground, joining groups with names like ''Hell'' and ''the People's Will,'' bent on assassinating the czar and bringing on revolution.

[ ...]

By 1911, Conrad was living in London, a British subject, while the empire into which he'd been born was in upheaval. Thousands were being killed or wounded by terrorists every year; newspapers had introduced special sections devoted to printing daily lists of political assassinations and bombings. That year ''Under Western Eyes'' was published. Instead of presenting eccentric anarchists pursuing images of ruin and destruction, it explores why real young people throw away promising careers and family ties to become terrorists, and so feels especially resonant now. The terrorist threat of the day comes from ''the East.'' Indeed, the Russian East was seen at the time much as the Islamic East is seen now: as vast and violent and unfathomable, the seat of despotism and religious fanaticism.

[ ... ]

The event that sets the plot in motion is based on the day in 1881 when the People's Will assassinated Czar Alexander II, the ''liberator czar'' of Russia's serfs, only Conrad substitutes a more recent and less sympathetic victim, the ruthless interior minister de Plehve, who was blown up in his carriage in 1904. As the story opens, the hero, Razumov -- the name means ''son of reason'' -- a diligent, apolitical student, is visited at midnight by a classmate he barely knows named Haldin, who announces, ''It was I who removed de P this morning.'' His bomb also killed a number of bystanders, ''reckless -- like a butcher,'' admits Haldin. Razumov says little but thinks furiously while his idealistic classmate defends his act: ''This is not murder -- it is war, war. . . . The modern civilization is false, but a new revelation shall come.'' Razumov decides that, rather than helping Haldin escape, he will betray him to the police.

The novel's second half takes place in Geneva, among an international tea-circle of ruthless terrorists biding their time in exile. Now it is Razumov's turn to drift in uninvited, and only we are the wiser that he has become a government spy.

''Under Western Eyes'' is less tightly constructed than ''The Secret Agent,'' but when it puts us into the psychic world of the terrorists, a place where violent action is the ultimate proof of sincerity, it is dazzling, unique. We see the cult of the suicide bomber in the mystic terrorists of 100 years ago: ''The mere mention of his achievement plunges me into an envious ecstasy,'' swoons a terrorist salon hostess about Haldin. ''Why should a man certain of immortality think of his life at all?'' The act of entering into this world was apparently so disturbing to the son of Apollo Korzeniowski thathe suffered a kind of nervous breakdown while completing ''Under Western Eyes'' and, according to his wife, for months afterward he would speak to the characters of his story as if in a dream....   Full article >>

Castro says Bush could spark WWIII

Gulf News

24 Oct, 2007

" ... Havana: Fidel Castro wrote on Tuesday that President Bush is threatening the world with nuclear war and famine -- an attack on Washington a day before the White House was to announce new plans to draw Cuba away from communism.

''The danger of a massive world famine is aggravated by Mr. Bush's recent initiative to transform foods into fuel,'' Castro wrote in Cuban news media, referring to US support for using corn and other food crops to produce gasoline substitutes.

The brief essay titled ''Bush, Hunger and Death'' also alleged that Bush ''threatens humanity with World War III, this time using atomic weapons.''

The White House on Tuesday brushed off Castro's comments -- particularly his assertion that Bush was pursuing a forceful conquest of Cuba.

''Dictators say a lot of things, and most of them can be discounted, including that,'' said White House press secretary Dana Perino.

Perino said that Bush on Wednesday would urge other nations to join together in promoting democracy in Cuba. ... "   Full article >>

developing countries: IMF should also monitor advanced economies

Times of India
20 Oct 2007

" ... WASHINGTON: The International Monetary Fund should step up its surveillance of the United States and other advanced economies in light of the global credit crisis shaking world markets, the Group of 24 developing countries said on Friday.

They also repeated their demand for greater representation of developing countries in the governing bodies of the IMF and its sister organisation, the World Bank, to adapt institutions created 63 years ago to the conditions of the 21st Century.

In their communique the finance ministers and central bankers in the Group of 24 "noted the vulnerability of the US subprime mortgage market and its financial and spillover effects" on the global economy.

The meltdown in the United States caused by risky subprime mortgages made to borrowers with spotty credit or low income also hurt investors in Europe and elsewhere. Banks, hedge funds and others that invested in subprime mortgage-backed securities suffered big losses.

The ministers said that the crisis "underscored the need to improve the fund's surveillance of the advanced economies putting as much focus in evaluating their vulnerabilities as it does in emerging market economies."

The G-24 ministers met on the sidelines of the annual meetings of the IMF and World Bank. Established in 1971 to coordinate developing countries' positions on international financial and developmental issues, the G-24 includes nations from Asia, Africa and Latin America, including growing economic powers such as India and Brazil. China sits in on the meetings as an observer. ... "   Read full article >>

"who was the last person to 'imprint' the president prior to his public allusion to World War III?"

" ... In an environment of competing agendas, each of us who championed a position sought to be the “last man in,” namely the person who got to imprint the executive chairman (our decision maker) with the final point of view for the day.  Failure to do so could find an inspection or point of investigation sidetracked for days or weeks after the executive chairman became distracted by a competing vision.  I understand the concept of “imprinting,” and have seen it in action.  What is clear from the president’s remarks is that, far from an innocent rhetorical fumble, his words, and the context in which he employed them, are a clear indication of the imprinting which is taking place behind the scenes at the White House.  If the president mentions World War III in the context of Iran’s nuclear program, one can be certain that this is the very sort of discussion that is taking place in the Oval Office.

A critical question, therefore, is who was the last person to “imprint” the president prior to his public allusion to World War III?  During his press conference, Bush noted that he awaited the opportunity to confer with his defense secretary, Robert Gates, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice following their recent meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.  So clearly the president hadn’t been imprinted recently by either of the principle players in the formulation of defense and foreign policy.  The suspects, then, are quickly whittled down to three: National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, Vice President Dick Cheney, and God.

Hadley is a long-established neoconservative thinker who has for the most part operated “in the shadows” when it comes to the formulation of Iran policy in the Bush administration.  In 2001, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, Hadley (then the deputy national security adviser) instituted what has been referred to as the “Hadley Rules,” a corollary of which is that no move will be made which alters the ideological positioning of Iran as a mortal enemy of the United States.  These “rules” shut down every effort undertaken by Iran to seek a moderation of relations between it and the United States, and prohibited American policymakers from responding favorably to Iranian offers to assist with the fight against al-Qaida; they also blocked the grand offer of May 2003 in which Iran outlined a dramatic diplomatic initiative, including a normalization of relations with Israel.  The Hadley Rules are at play today, in an even more nefarious manner, with the National Security Council becoming involved in the muzzling of former Bush administration officials who are speaking out on the issue of Iran.  Hadley is blocking Flynt Leverett, formerly of the National Security Council, from publishing an Op-Ed piece critical of the Bush administration on the grounds that any insight into the machinations of policymaking (or lack thereof) somehow strengthens Iran’s hand.  Leverett’s article would simply underscore the fact that the Bush administration has spurned every opportunity to improve relations with Iran while deliberately exaggerating the threat to U.S. interests posed by the Iranian theocracy.

The silencing of informed critics is in keeping with Hadley’s deliberate policy obfuscation.  There is still no official policy in place within the administration concerning Iran.  While a more sober-minded national security bureaucracy works to marginalize the hawkish posturing of the neocons, the administration has decided that the best policy is in fact no policy, which is a policy decision in its own right.  Hadley has forgone the normal procedures of governance, in which decisions impacting the nation are written down, using official channels, and made subject to review and oversight by those legally and constitutionally mandated and obligated to do so.  A policy of no policy results in secret policy, which means, according to Hadley himself, the Bush administration simply does whatever it wants to, regardless.  In the case of Iran, this means pushing for regime change in Tehran at any cost, even if it means World War III. ..."

An idea whose time has come: Foreign bases on U.S. soil

" ... Ecuador's leftist President Rafael Correa said Washington must let him open a military base in Miami if the United States wants to keep using an air base on Ecuador's Pacific coast.

Correa has refused to renew Washington's lease on the Manta air base, set to expire in 2009. U.S. officials say it is vital for counter-narcotics surveillance operations on Pacific drug-running routes.

"We'll renew the base on one condition: that they let us put a base in Miami -- an Ecuadorean base," Correa said in an interview during a trip to Italy.

"If there's no problem having foreign soldiers on a country's soil, surely they'll let us have an Ecuadorean base in the United States."

The U.S. embassy to Ecuador says on its Web site that anti-narcotics flights from Manta gathered information behind more than 60 percent of illegal drug seizures on the high seas of the Eastern Pacific last year.

It offers a fact-sheet on the base at:

Correa, a popular leftist economist, had promised to cut off his arm before extending the lease that ends in 2009 and has called U.S. President George W. Bush a "dimwit". ..."

Nikos Raptis: Ethics of a Stone

ZNet Commentary

October 21, 2007

That the Greeks are the "chosen people" of the world is indisputable. Usually, "chosen peoples" are chosen by God Himself. However, in the case of the Greeks it was the (European) Christian white man that elevated the Greeks to the top of the world. The "creation" of man (and of the world) is denoted by the Greek word "genesis". After his birth man must be "baptized", that is "submerged into the water" as the Greek word "baptizo" denotes. Then follows the childhood period accompanied by Christian "catechism", as denoted by the Greek word "catecho" (to indoctrinate, that is to "brainwash"). Indoctrination which is performed by Christian "clergy", as denoted by the Greek word "clerekos" (priest). Quite frequently, these members of the clergy are "pederasts", as denoted by the Greek word "pedi" (child) and "eros" (love). Then the child goes to "school", as denoted by the Greek word "scholi" (leisure, school). No need to go on. Ask any Greek 10-year-old and he or she will spit out the "litany" (again a Greek word!) of the above claims, as proof that the Greeks are the "chosen people" of the world.

[Note: That it is the white man and not the Almighty that brought about this "racket" of the classical Greek supremacy is amply analyzed by Martin Bernal in his excellent work "Black Athena". Although the Nazis of yore (and of today) disagree fervently with him.]

So, facing the reality of this inundation of the western civilization (especially the sciences) with the Greek "spirit" (and Greek words) we find that it was inevitable to have a scientific branch with the name of "onomastics" or "onomatology" that studies the names of people (as expected, "onoma" being the Greek word for "name").

In this branch of science the correct spelling of the name "Petraeus" is "Petraios". The root of the word "petraios" is the Greek word "petra" which means "stone" or "rock". Thus, "petraios" is the adjective for "petra" and it means "of a rock" or "of a stone". The search around the word "petraios" results in a variety of interesting bits of information. Here are some of them:

- "rockfish": any of various fishes that live among rocks.

- "tomb": as in the play "Electra" of Sophocles.

- "Petraios": epithet of the God Poseidon in Thessaly as he was the one who "clave the rocks" of the valley of Tempi, and drained Thessaly.

- "Petraiai Nymphai": the nymphs (girls) of the rocks. [Did "nymphets" originate among those rocks? Who knows.]

- "Petraios": one of the "Centaurs" (creatures that were half human and half horse) who was killed in Thessaly by some king the day of his marriage to Hippodameia. [Centaurs are very well-known to Americans thanks to Walt Disney and his "Fantasia".]

General David H. Petraeus (or more correctly Petraios, as we have seen), is an "officer and a gentleman" plus a scholar. His father, Sixtus, a Dutch American, emigrated to the US during World War II. The Dutch origin of the General explains the Greek roots of his name.

Prominent among the European white men that we mentioned above, was the Dutch humanist and theologian Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (1466/1469-1536). Erasmus was "infatuated" with the Greeks, as a matter of fact he "invented" what is known as the "erasmian" pronunciation of the classical Greek language. [Which we, as Greek kids, found strange, if not ridiculous]. Erasmus was the son of Roger Gerard, a priest. Following the trend of the Dutch intellectuals of his time Roger Gerard's son adopted the above Greco-Latinized name. Now he is known to the world as "Erasmus". Again the correct word is "Erasmos" which originates from the Greek word "erasmios" which means "lovable"! The root again is the Greek word "eros" that we have already met above.

So, it is rational to assume that the Dutch ancestors of General Petraios chose a Greek-sounding name for themselves. Now, which of the above listed items they thought described better their family is rather irrelevant to us. However, there is one more item that could be added to the list; Peter the Apostle of Jesus. Peter's original name was Simon but Jesus told him: "Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona... And I say unto thee. That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church..." [Matt. 16:18-19]. The name Peter originates from the Greek word "petra" which means "rock" or "stone", as we have already seen. Therefore the surname Petraios could be associated with Peter of Jesus.

The addition of Peter (the "rock") in the above possible choices for the Dutch ancestors of General Petraios is only a guess. What is not a guess is that General David H. Petraeus has the morality or ethics of a stone or a rock.

Petraeus took part in various US military operations: In Haiti, in one of the most repulsive and inhumane interventions of the US against a defenseless and innocent population. The code-name of the operation: "Operation Uphold Democracy". In Bosnia, in the murderous geopolitical game of the US in which (not so strangely) one of the protagonists, Milosevic, was a close friend of Richard Holbrooke, a top US official. Code-name: "Operation Joint Forge". In Kuwait, during the decade after the (Bush father) Gulf War. Code-name: "Operation Desert Spring" (that is, blossoming of the desert by killing about half a million Iraqi infants, during the Clinton watch). Finally in the present (Bush son) US "aggressive war" (a Nuremberg Tribunal crime) against Iraq. Code-name: "Operation Iraqi Freedom".

In all these US military operations that Petraeus participated (and in some commanded and commands), doing the bidding of the Bush family and the Clinton family, about 2 million infants, children, women, and men were murdered or starved to death.

In all languages there is the expression "heart of stone" to describe the cruel acts of a person. Thus, the claim that Petraeus has the "ethics of a stone" is based on the fact of the 2 million dead and the notion that only a "heart of stone" could tolerate participation in operations of this kind of US "benevolence".

To defend themselves human societies take measures against their members that commit crimes, especially crimes against humanity. Now, imagine that the American society decides to do something against the Bush family, the Clinton family, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Petraeus, et al. Could the following (imaginary) proposition for such a measure be adopted by the American people?

The proposition:

AMENDMENT XXVIII To the US Constitution

"We the American people, as part of the human population of this planet, having observed and unfortunately having tolerated the crimes against humanity committed by our leaders after the Second World War, we have come to the conclusion that our leaders should be judged for the crimes they commit in the same way as any other human is judged for the commission of the same crime. Therefore, if any of our leaders intentionally, through the crime of 'aggressive war', takes the life of even one human being should be judged in the same way that an individual who killed another person is judged."

Here enters a tragic paradox: There is no human on this planet (except persons of the Sarkozy ilk) who disputes that the above proposition is moral. Yet, most people will claim that it is "unrealistic" (or imaginary!). Therefore, let immorality rule the world.

If Bush, et al, should be judged and condemned for killing only one person it is reasonable to expect that for killing 2 million humans the sentence should be mathematically proportional to the number of the murdered.

It is up to the American people to remove the paradox and let morality reign on this planet adopting any Amendment that they themselves see fit.
