How to stop global warming? This extraordinary movie made by the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation from Holland shows us the whole and bitter truth about the influence of the meat industry on our climate and on the devastation of our environment, water and air.
The other day I was watching a lecture from Dr. Neal Barnard. He's a Vegan so of course he's a tad biased, but during the lecture he made the remark that in America, 1 million animals are killed per hour for consumption. That's a shock statement, which curiously is very shocking though I quite admittedly won't be curbing my animal addiction anytime soon. It's not that I wouldn't want to, it's just, well... I think I like meat.... No really, though I am beginning to find food which have begun to change my mind. I'm absolutely in love with the Mushroom Lover's veggie burgers. ...
... Karl Rove – who was George W. Bush's chief spin-doctor – boasted this year: "Climate is gone." He meant it is off the political agenda, but in time, this statement will be more true and more cursed than he realizes.
It's in this context that a new, deeply pessimistic framework for understanding the earth's ecology – and our place in it – has emerged. Many of us know, in outline, the warm, fuzzy Gaia hypothesis, first outlined by James Lovelock. It claims that the Planet Earth functions, in effect, as a single living organism called Gaia. It regulates its own temperature and chemistry to create a comfortable steady state that can sustain life. So coral reefs produced cloud-seeding chemicals which then protect them from ultraviolet radiation. Rainforests transpire water vapour so generate their own rainfall. This process expands outwards. Life protects life.
Now there is a radically different theory that is gaining adherents, ominously named the Medea hypothesis. The paleontologist Professor Peter Ward is an expert in the great extinctions that have happened in the earth's past, and he believes there is a common thread between them. With the exception of the meteor strike that happened 65 million years ago, every extinction was caused by living creatures becoming incredibly successful – and then destroying their own habitats. So, for example, 2.3 billion years ago, plant life spread incredibly rapidly, and as it went it inhaled huge amounts of heat-trapping carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This then caused a rapid plunge in temperature that froze the planet and triggered a mass extinction.
Ward believes nature isn't a nurturing mother like Gaia. No: it is Medea, the figure from Greek mythology who murdered her own children. In this theory, life doesn't preserve itself. It serially destroys itself. It is a looping doomsday machine. This theory adds a postscript to Darwin's theory of the survival of the fittest. There is survival of the fittest, until the fittest trash their own habitat, and do not survive at all. ...

A bizarre Federal Security Service (FSB) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that a mysterious Hollywood cult called the 'Star Whackers' have shockingly killed again in one of their most brazen attacks to date.
According to this report, this Thursday past one of Hollywood's most powerful publicists named Ronni Chasen [photo 3rd left] was brutally gunned down in a daring public execution in the very heart of America's most prestigious movie cities, Beverly Hills, after her attackers pulled alongside her Mercedes-Benz and pumped no less than 3 bullets into her head killing her instantly.
The name 'Star Whackers' given to this mysterious cult was coined by veteran Hollywood actor Randi Quaid and his wife Evi upon their escape from the United States to Canada where they sought asylum over their fears they were next to be targeted for death.
Canadian authorities quickly released Evi Quaid after finding she was a "prima facie" Canadian citizen and Randi Quaid was released on bail shortly after.
During an extended television interview with the American television network ABC both Randi and Evi Quaid detailed their 3-year ordeal against this mysterious cult they claim is being protected by US police and legal authorities and they say have murdered no less than 8 Hollywood stars including actors Heath Ledger and David Carradine.
What started the FSB's opening an investigation into this "Star Whackers" cult, this report continues, was Randi Quaid's warning during another American television interview that the hugely popular Australian actor Mel Gibson was next to be targeted, and as we can read as reported by the NBC Today Show:
"The Quaids are also fearful that other celebrities could fall victim to the whackers. "It is very possible that Heath Ledger could have been murdered," Randy said. He and Evi also added that Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Mel Gibson are in danger. In the case of Gibson, Evi said the alleged voice recordings being used in his dispute with Oksana Grigorieva are the product of a larger conspiracy. "I think he was drugged. I think he was slipped a mickey." Randy added that he thought Grigorieva was "sent in to do him (Gibson) in."

From the Iranian Press TV:
North Korea has slammed the US-South Korea's military exercises, saying the drills could push the Korean Peninsula to a state of war.
"The situation on the Korean Peninsula is inching closer to the brink of war due to the reckless plan of those trigger-happy elements to stage again war exercises targeted against the (North)," said the North's official news agency, KCNA.
The United States and South Korea are going to start the drills on Sunday.
The comments came ahead of a planned visit on Friday by Gen. Walter Sharp, the US military commander in South Korea, to the island targeted by the North Korean attack.
The exercises will continue with the USS George Washington and four other Navy ships heading to the Yellow Sea, west of the Korean Peninsula, to begin joint exercises with South Korea on Sunday.
Due to more US military presence in the area, North Korean authorities decided to boost their forces and send advanced weaponry to the maritime border and warned that the joint war games are considered as" provocations" and could bring about their severe "retaliation."
Harsh criticisms from both the public and the opposition parties in South Korea to the government and military's soft response to the northern neighbor's shelling attack led to the resignation of the South Korean defense minister on Thursday.
India has formed two new army divisions - comprising more than 36,000 men - to defend the north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh.
The remote north-eastern state adjoins China which claims large parts of it.
The 56th Division will be based in the nearby state of Nagaland to guard the eastern flank of Arunachal Pradesh from Chinese attack through Burma.
The other new formation, the 71st Division, will be based in Assam to protect central Arunachal Pradesh.
There has been no response so far from China to the decision.
Already the Indian Fifth Mountain Division guards western Arunachal Pradesh while another division is responsible for protecting the eastern part of the state.
In addition there are counter-insurgency troops in Assam who can be sent to the Sino-Indian border at short notice.
A total of 1,260 officers and 35,011 soldiers have been assigned to the two new divisions, which are being especially equipped for mountain warfare.
Officials say they were formed at the behest of the Indian army chief, General VK Singh - who said they were necessary to beef up defences against China.
Gen Singh was not available for comment but one of his staff officers, on condition of anonymity, told the BBC that the army chief had "pushed very hard to fast-track the raising of the two divisions".

In the first experiment, the head of a shop dummy was fitted with two cameras connected to two small screens placed in front of the subjects' eyes, so that they saw what the dummy "saw." When the dummy's camera eyes and a subject's head were directed downwards, the subject saw the dummy's body where he/she would normally have seen his/her own.
The illusion of body-swapping was created when the scientist touched the stomach of both with two sticks. The subject could then see that the mannequin's stomach was being touched while feeling (but not seeing) a similar sensation on his/her own stomach. As a result, the subject developed a powerful sensation that the mannequin's body was his/her own.
"This shows how easy it is to change the brain's perception of the physical self," says Henrik Ehrsson, who led the project. "By manipulating sensory impressions, it's possible to fool the self not only out of its body but into other bodies too."

... A research team at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm studied 13 mentally healthy, highly creative men and women. As noted in the paper published in May in PLoS ONE, other scientists had previously found that divergent thinking, or the ability to "think outside the box," involves the brain's dopamine communication system. The Swedish research team used PET scanning to determine the abundance of a particular dopamine receptor, or sensor, in the creative individuals' thalamus and striatum, areas that process and sort information before it reaches conscious thought—and that are known to be involved in schizophrenia. The team found that people who had lower levels of dopamine receptor activity in the thalamus also had higher scores on tests of divergent thinking—for instance, finding many solutions to a problem. ...
