'You have to be wealthier to eat like a poor Mediterranean peasant'

From Mediterraneans Abandon Their Famous Diet by Jeremy Cherfas, NPR

It's not news that Americans are getting fatter and fatter, and the same is happening in many countries around the world. What may come as a bit of a surprise is that it's even happening in Mediterranean countries, especially among young people.

Pioppi, a little seaside Italian town south of Naples, is home of the Mediterranean Diet. In fact, there's a museum here dedicated to Ancel Keys, a Minnesota physiologist who traveled to Europe during the 1940s and 1950s to study the diet of people living near the Mediterranean Sea.

Keys, who liked to eat Mediterranean-style meals, lived to be 101 years old. The problem is, in Italy generally, even here in Pioppi, the diet is being ignored.

"The Mediterranean diet is absolutely something that we are trying to pursue every day," said Dr. Angelo Pietrobelli, associate professor of pediatrics and nutrition at the University of Verona. "Unfortunately, in particular among adolescents, they try to avoid Mediterranean diet because they try to 'imitate' the U.S. diet."

Some people, of course, don't think hamburgers and sodas are a U.S. diet — they call it the "industrial global diet." Either way, the results are the same.

When Keys first came to Italy with the U.S. Army during World War II — his name is the K in the Army's emergency K-rations — he was struck by the low rate of heart disease he saw among poor people in Italy, compared to well-fed northern Europe and America. The traditional Mediterranean diet is more than just tasty — it's actually good for you.

But the Italians who gave Keys his insights into the Mediterranean diet have vanished. Italy now tips the scales as the fat man of Europe; maybe 36 percent of 12- to 16-year-olds are overweight or obese, according to Pietrobelli.

Musical Innerlube: Manic Street Preachers - If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next

From Wikipedia....

The song's theme is taken from the Spanish Civil War, and the idealism of Welsh volunteers who joined the left-wing International Brigades, fighting Francisco Franco's military rebels against the Spanish Republic. The song takes its name from a Republican poster of the time. A photograph of a young child killed by Nationalist bombs is shown under a sky of bombers with the stark warning "If you tolerate this, your children will be next" written at the bottom.

Various works on the Spanish Civil War were the inspiration for this song, most notably George Orwell's first-hand account, "Homage to Catalonia." Wire [the lyricist] has acknowledged that he was also inspired by a song by The Clash, "Spanish Bombs", which has a similar subject. Certain lyrics pertain directly to these works. For example, the line "If I can shoot rabbits/then I can shoot fascists" is attributed to a remark made by a man who signed up with the Republican fighters to his brother in an interview years later. This was originally quoted in the book Miners Against Fascism by Hywel Francis.

"I've walked Las Ramblas/but not with real intent" brings to mind the account in Orwell's book of fighting on the Ramblas, with the various factions seemingly getting nowhere with the fighting and often a sense of camaraderie overriding the vaunted principles each side was supposed to be fighting for.

Leftist activists and musicians from MANIC STREET PREACHERS wrote in 1999 this beautiful song dedicate to INTERNATIONAL BRIGADISTS, young common people who changed shooting rabbits at the country side for shooting fascists in the battlefields of Spain, where DEMOCRACY was a concern of all the human kind.

"If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next"

The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
So if I can shoot rabbits
Then I can shoot fascists

Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain

Holes in your head today
But I'm a pacifist
I've walked La Ramblas
But not with real intent

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

And on the street tonight an old man plays
With newspaper cuttings of his glory days

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

Persecution of animal activists in Spain

Translation and voice: Susannah Louise

On June 22, twelve activists who form part of the animal rights movement in Spain were arrested in different parts of the country and accused of having carried out a mass liberation of minks from a fur farm in Galicia in 2007. Those arrested deny having any part in this action.

Anti-terrorist units from the Spanish Guardia Civil, armed with guns and accompanied by dogs trained in the detection of explosives, entered the houses of the activists at 7am, seized computers and material such as tshirts and badges, and transported the activists in handcuffs and armoured vehicles to police stations where they were held for 72 hours before being charged. Nine activists were released on bail, while another three remain today on remand in custody...

Martin Luther King - A Time to Break Silence

Martin Luther King - A Time to Break Silence

Starting in 1965, King began to express doubts about the United States' role in the Vietnam War. In an April 4, 1967, appearance at the New York City Riverside Church — exactly one year before his death — King delivered Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence. In the speech he spoke strongly against the U.S.'s role in the war, insisting that the U.S. was in Vietnam "to occupy it as an American colony" and calling the U.S. government "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today."

"Now, it should be incandescently clear that no one who has any concern for the integrity and life of America today can ignore the present war. If America's soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read: Vietnam. It can never be saved so long as it destroys the deepest hopes of men the world over. So it is that those of us who are yet determined that America will be are led down the path of protest and dissent, working for the health of our land."
"At this point I should make it clear that while I have tried in these last few minutes to give a voice to the voiceless in Vietnam and to understand the arguments of those who are called "enemy," I am as deeply concerned about our own troops there as anything else. For it occurs to me that what we are submitting them to in Vietnam is not simply the brutalizing process that goes on in any war where armies face each other and seek to destroy. We are adding cynicism to the process of death, for they must know after a short period there that none of the things we claim to be fighting for are really involved. Before long they must know that their government has sent them into a struggle among Vietnamese, and the more sophisticated surely realize that we are on the side of the wealthy, and the secure, while we create a hell for the poor."

Group: Fake CIA Program Endangers Relief Programs

The medical group, Doctors Without Borders, is criticizing the U.S. government for organizing a fake vaccination program in the Pakistani town where it believed Osama bin Laden was hiding. The plot was used to gain access to bin Laden’s compound and obtain DNA from his family. In a statement, Doctors Without Borders said the program could threaten relief efforts worldwide, saying, "The risk is that vulnerable communities ... will understandably question the true motivation of medical workers and humanitarian aid. The potential consequence is that even basic healthcare, including vaccination, does not reach those who need it most."

Humanity's Brave New World

Originally Uploaded by UrbanWarfareChannel on Jul 15, 2011

Aldous Huxley's insidious Brave New World is what the global elite are striving to push humanity into with plans of massive depopulation, forced drugging and complete slavery. The future society being planned out for us by the globalists involves the complete loss of sovereignty and emotions. It's time for the masses to grow a backbone and start resisting all the tyranny and oppression being dished out by the corrupt and power hungry politicians and governments. If we don't, we will have a nightmare future where we are all mindless drones who will love our servitude to the World State.

Greece in the spotlight after evoking selective default

Greece heads to another EU summit next week on fresh aid for its debt-wracked economy after evoking -- before pulling back -- the thorny notion of a selective default that could unleash a eurozone storm.

The term is understood to mean a pick-and-choose approach to a country's maturing debt, with a government arranging to delay repayment on certain obligations while continuing to fully honour others.

But to many investors, and more importantly to credit rating agencies that have already demoted Greece's bonds to junk status, these are just semantics.

A French plan for private banks to rollover Greek government bonds as they came due was effectively shot down this month when ratings agency Standard and Poor's said that such an arrangement would be tantamount to default.

Fellow evaluator Fitch this week also warned that "private sector involvement would likely be viewed as a sign of sovereign credit impairment and could trigger a rating default event."

Departing garrison commander at Fort Detrick says sustainability was among her priorities

Huh? Say what?

Megan Eckstein writes for the Frederick News-Post:

"When I came in, I said, 'if there's something I want to leave behind, it's a culture of sustainability,'" Robinson said last week during a farewell interview before today's change-of-command ceremony, when Col. Allan Darden will take over.

According to Wikipedia:

During World War II, Camp Detrick and the USBWL became the site of intensive biological warfare (BW) research using various pathogens.

[ ... ]

From 1945 to 1955 under Project Paperclip and its successors, the U.S. government recruited over 1,600 German and Austrian scientists and engineers in a variety of fields such as aircraft design, missile technology and biological warfare. Among the specialists in the latter field who ended up working in the U.S. were Walter Schreiber, Erich Traub and Kurt Blome, who had been involved with medical experiments on concentration camp inmates to test biological warfare agents.

[ ... ]

Biological tests performed on Seventh-day Adventists

The U.S. General Accounting Office issued a report on September 28, 1994, which stated that between 1940 and 1974, DOD and other national security agencies studied hundreds of thousands of human subjects in tests and experiments involving hazardous substances.

The quote from the study:

Many experiments that tested various biological agents on human subjects, referred to as Operation Whitecoat, were carried out at Fort Detrick, Maryland, in the 1950s. The human subjects originally consisted of volunteer enlisted men. However, after the enlisted men staged a sitdown strike to obtain more information about the dangers of the biological tests, Seventh-day Adventists [SDAs] who were conscientious objectors were recruited for the studies.

Is the US government at war with whistleblowers?

By Tom Burridge, BBC News
The Obama administration is facing criticism for prosecutions brought under the US Espionage Act against government employees accused of leaking sensitive information. Some accuse the US government of over-reacting, following the release of files by Wikileaks.

When Steve Rosen spotted two men walking up his drive early one morning in August 2004, he thought they were evangelicals from a local church.

In fact, they were FBI agents who had come to his home in the US state of Maryland to inform him he was being prosecuted for receiving and passing on classified information.

''You could have knocked me over with a feather," Mr Rosen said. ''I hadn't the remotest clue what they were talking about.''

At the time he was working for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (Aipac), a powerful Washington DC-based pro-Israel lobbying group.

The FBI had been following him for five years and monitoring his conversations.


One of his sources, included in the charges against him, was Pentagon intelligence analyst Lawrence Franklin.

Five years later, the Department of Justice's case against Steve Rosen and his Aipac colleague and co-defendant Keith Weisman collapsed. The prosecution was unable to show they had criminal intent.

"If we had had a trial we would have been able to show in great detail what a sham this prosecution was," he said.

How Does Prayer Actually Work?

Peter Baksa writes for Huffington Post:

All we know is that every particle knows what every other particle it has ever interacted with is doing.

This odd principle is known as Entanglement. When a particle has once met with another similar particle their energy states can become entangled, such that however far apart they are, what happens to one can influence the other. So, not only can the measuring of a particle influence its final state, the act might also influence the state of another particle somewhere else that it's entangled with. This action at a distance is not something that Einstein liked a whole lot, and seems to be almost magical in nature.

Obviously there is some sort of subatomic exchange between them, a communication of energy going constantly back and forth. But all particles are comprised of energy, which brings us to something suggested by the Zero Point Field equations. These equations extend the individual energy fields each particle has into a single field that connects all particles, all matter, everywhere -- including us and our thoughts. Thus, there is only one energy field around and everything is a part of it, everything is entangled within it.

The Clash of Generations

Thomas L. Friedman writes for the New York Times:

I was struck by one big similarity between what I heard in Tahrir Square in Cairo in February and what one hears in Syntagma Square today. It’s the word “justice.” You hear it more than “freedom.” That is because there is a deep sense of theft in both countries, a sense that the way capitalism played out in Egypt and Greece in the last decade was in its most crony-esque, rigged and corrupt deformation, letting some people get fantastically rich simply because of their proximity to power. So there is a hunger not just for freedom, but for justice. Or, as Rothkopf puts it, “not just for accounting, but for accountability.”

Is Western Capitalism on the Brink of Collapse?

By Cynical Revolt, Firedoglake

Federal Reserve officials are finally admitting that the big private banks are “putting capitalism at risk”. George Soros noted that we are on the verge of another economic collapse. I am not the kind of guy that declares “the end of capitalism” every time there is a dip in the market or great depression caused by unregulated banks and a do nothing monetary policy, but certainly recent events should concern the capitalists.

Joseph Stiglitz writes “Just a few years ago, a powerful ideology – the belief in free and unfettered markets – brought the world to the brink of ruin. Even in its hey-day, from the early 1980’s until 2007, American-style deregulated capitalism brought greater material well-being only to the very richest in the richest country of the world. Indeed, over the course of this ideology’s 30-year ascendance, most Americans saw their incomes decline or stagnate year after year.”

Just 5% of Americans account for half of healthcare spending. The 5% are mainly the elderly and the disabled, and the health care system puts an unfair burden on those people. This is all happening while the middle class has about shrank out of existence. Wages for the average person in the United States have stayed the same for over 30 years, the wealth of CEOs and fat cat executives continue to get richer, and millionaire basketball and football players are squabbling with billionaire owners over how to share revenue. Despite popular support for reducing income inequality, western governments do little or nothing about the problem. Studies show that Americans want income equality at least comparable to Sweden, but receive worse income inequality than Egypt. Even the Fed is saying that income inequality is undermining growth. That may be admirable, but it was their own policies that created such vast income inequality in the first place. All of this is embodied in the news that recently bailed-out Goldman Sachs is outsourcing 1,000 jobs to Signapore. The administration’s response to great outsourcing is to keep approving free trade deals. The big banks continue to wrongfully foreclose on people. This leads us to ask: why hasn’t the Fed halted all foreclosures? It is astonishing that we live in a “free country” and at the same time, banks can kick people out of their houses without proper paperwork. The Atlantic had a piece asking whether Obama’s (willing) failure to go after Wall Street undermined any possible recovery for the economy. The article’s answer was no, but the obvious answer seems to be yes. Wall Street crashed the economy, the system was not changed, therefore there is no recovery. Many people are now asking how we can change capitalism to make it better. But one would wonder whether we need a new economic system all together. The current system has fostered self-defeating greed for quite some time now, and it seems time to create a new economy not based on destructive greed and profit.


Professors from the Chicago School of Economics are suggesting that the world treat Greece in the same way that Germany was treated after World War 1. Because that worked so well. Certainly Greece is a place where a radical anti-authoritarian movement could take hold, as protesters there continue to clash with police over the austerity cuts. The Greek Prime Minister said that the Financial System is “stronger than the will of the people”. I wouldn’t be so sure.

The New Mammon: Banks Become State Religion

By Eric Margolis, Information Clearing House

In 1922 Greek armies trying to conquer western Anatolia were routed by Turkey’s military leader, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Hundreds of thousands of ethnic Greeks were uprooted from Ionian coastal areas. After this debacle, Greek officers took three former prime ministers, a general and two other politicians who had led the Turkish-Greek War and shot them. Greeks cheered.

Many Greeks today must be wishing to see similar punishment inflicted on their politicians who were responsible for the nation’s bankruptcy and staggering $500 billion debt.

[ ... ]

Greece is using the same scare-tactics that the supposedly too-big-to-fail insolvent US banks employed in 2008: “if I go down, I’ll take everyone with me.”

In this case, it’s Europe’s big banks. Three big French banks, BNP, CréditAgricole, SociétéGénéral, hold large chunks of

Greece’s debt. If Greece defaults, goes the hue and cry, French, German, Swiss, and Belgian banks may crash.

Here we go again. Politicians have allowed the banking industry not only to grow larger than manufacturing, notably in the United States where the top five banks control 40% of all deposits, but to become so over-extended and risky they are a danger to itself and the public.

Bankers who invested in Greek debt or US subprime mortgages were greedy fools and should be fired, not rescued.

Greek PM: "The financial system," he said, "is stronger than the will of the people."

Greeks watching at home could see their prime minister speaking inside parliament and pandemonium just beyond it. "We have to stop our country from collapsing," Mr. Papandreou said, urging a yes to reforms. And this extraordinary admission: "The financial system," he said, "is stronger than the will of the people."

World of Warcraft Wisdom: Economics & Adam Smith in Azeroth

Mark Sherman writes:

There is no difference in how the classes are treated in Azeroth, I get to use the same facilities as the guy with hordes of gold, I get to rest in the same inn, use the same flight paths, buy from the same vendors, use the same trainers, and so on. In reality, the separate classes remain divided, almost pitted against one another. We do not value those who provide us with our resources, we do not value those who craft our goods, in fact, we make them all second class citizens. A second class citizen in reality is not able to use the same facilities, go to the same schools, drink the same water, fly or drive the same vehicles, and so on. Moreover, there is the judgement factor between the classes. The only way in Azeroth you know I am not of the upper class is by looking at my mount, or inspect one’s armor for heirlooms and other items that require purchasing. We so easily can tell one’s economic class and judge that person for it.
