*“Half Life”* "We walk through half our life as if it were a fever dream, barely touching the ground, our eyes half open, our heart half closed. Not half knowing who we are, we watch the ghost of us drift from room to room, through friends and lovers never quite as real as advertised. Not saying half we mean or meaning half we say, we dream ourselves from birth to birth seeking some true self. Until the fever breaks and the heart can not abide a moment longer as the rest of us awakens, summoned from the dream, not half caring for anything but love." ~ Stephen Levine

Quote of the day: On government “investment”

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 4 hours ago
“You are right when you say that "It's true that money has to be spent over a long period in order to get more money in the end, but that this does not constitute any reason why the government should do it." “… [N]ot every long-term investment of money is necessarily and automatically profitable or self-liquidating; that depends on the investor's economic judgment; bad judgment leads to a total loss, to bankruptcy or to "money poured down the drain." When, however, the investor is the government, then the results are necessarily disastrous for the economy, for the following reaso... more »

How Modern Money Production Worsens Income Inequality

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 7 hours ago
*Guest post by **Jörg Guido Hülsmann* [image: Bridging the gap]The starting point for any serious reflection on the subject of money production is the fact that the creation of new money does not bring about uniform and simultaneous changes. An increasing money supply tends to entail a higher money price level1, but the individual prices change at different points of time and each to a different extent (i.e., Cantillon effects). As a consequence, money production creates winners and losers. The winners are those who can use the new money first, because at this point in time the ... more »

Was Boris Nemtsov a double (or was it triple) agent?

greencrow at Greencrow As The Crow Flies - 9 hours ago

We all want to eat healthier, but it's hard, right? So many "healthy" recipes are full of ingredients you've never heard of, and you want a meal the family will still eat. So how do you do it? Often the answer comes down to swapping out traditional ingredients for healthier alternatives. Mexican food is a favorite, but it's often not particularly healthy. But with a few modifications it can be. That is the idea behind the quinoa and blackened tilapia bowl. It's truthfully a cross between blackened tilapia (a favorite dish in our family) and a Mexican bowl, swapping out the rice ... more »

*UM’s tolerance problem* Jonah Goldberg I once asked my late father if he had any experiences with anti-Semitism. There weren’t many. Although that was probably in part because of his scoring methodology. The Irish kids who beat up the Jewish kids in his Bronx neighborhood didn’t do so because they were anti-Semitic, but because “they had to fight somebody,” as my dad put it. Today, such behavior would probably be called a hate crime. So I suppose that’s progress. He did tell me that the first time someone said to him “Don’t Jew me” was during his freshman year at the University...more »

This outlines all that is clearly unnatural about our moon and includes the fact that the moon is apparently hollow. They even found metals in the rocks that are not explainable at all.

That makes all the oddities and coincidences totally plausible. The same argument obviously supports similar building programs on most other planets and moons.

Jon Rappoport “…if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth.” (*1984*, George Orwell) The New Scientist has the stunning story (2/28/15, “Google wants to rank websites based on facts not links,” by Hal Hodson): “THE internet is stuffed with garbage. Anti-vaccination websites make the front page of Google, and fact-free ‘news’ stories spread like wildfire. Google has devised a fix – rank websites according to their truthfulness.” Great idea, right? Sure it is. The author of the article lets the cat out of the bag right away with his ... more »

Students in Democratic Schools Learn More

Jim Horn at Schools Matter - 1 day ago
by David Kirp: ARMENIA, Colombia — IN a one-room rural schoolhouse an hour’s drive from this city in a coffee-growing region of Colombia, 30 youngsters ages 5 to 13 are engrossed in study. In most schools, students sit in rows facing the teacher, who does most of the talking. But these students are grouped at tables, each corresponding to a grade level. The hum of conversation fills the room. After tackling an assignment on their own, the students review one another’s work. If a child is struggling, the others pitch in to help. During my visit to one of these schools, second grader... more »

A Synchronicity of Paternities

Spike EP at News Spike - 1 day ago
*"Yet another divorce scandal broke in 1876. This time it seems the Prince of Wales played, uncharacteristicly, an almost guiltless role, his one misdemeanour amounting to writing some compromising letters to Lady Aylseford, who was being divorced by her husband in the grounds of her adultery with Lord Blandford, elder brother of Lord Randolph Churchill. Churchill obtained a packet of letters written by the Prince to Lady Aylseford which Lord Randolph described as of 'the most compromising character', adding that if they were ever published, they would would ensure the Prince 'wo... more »

It took a few overs mind you, delayed in part by the frustratingly clean batting of Mr Warner himself, but by the time Southee clean bowled Finch the top was already starting to come off. 1 for 30, and as a crowd on a gorgeous in-swinging Eden Park day we suddenly sensed it.

Did Rahm Emanuel Fail Chicago?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
*FIRST A LITTLE BREAKING NEWS* The local Chicago SEIUs just endorsed Chuy Garcia over Emanuel this afternoon. This is a huge big deal and the necessary step towards getting the international SEIU to get on board. There have been quite a few times over the years that Blue America has run newspaper and broadcast ads in Spanish. There was only one time, however, that Blue America ran a series of ads in community newspapers in Korean, Polish, Urdu (as well as Spanish and English). It was 2007 and the occasion was an accountability moment for anti-immigrant knave Rahm Emanuel. A few ... more »

The Great European Disaster Movie

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 1 day ago
I can't say I'll be watching it (though others will) but we're only a few minutes away now from the *Storyville* programme* The Great European Disaster Movie *on BBC Four. It has been widely trailed, and everyone from Nigel Farage to Dan Hannan has denounced it as a "pro-EU mockumentary". It is said to depict a terrible post-EU future with the far-right rampant, ISIS at the gates of Vienna, and Nigel Farage as prime minister of "Great England" busily deporting immigrants *en masse.* The programme has been written by *Dateline London* regular Annalisa Piras (their "voice of Italy... more »

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 1 day ago
Alan at *Biased BBC* was struck by a remarkable article on the BBC News website - a piece about an Azerbaijani *Charlie Hebdo *from a century ago by Konul Khalilova, editor of the BBC Azeri service. If you've not read it yet, please do so. Given Azerbaijan's peculiar relationship to its Islamic heritage, the BBC can probably get away with publishing such things there but, interestingly, they also chose to share it with their general, worldwide readership. Here's a scene that looks oddly familiar:

[image: rant-jpeg-b] Sunday again... A new month and of course time again for my weekly rant... It has been very cold here in central Canada, but it is nothing compared to what is happening across the United States right now.... Temperatures everywhere across the states are near record lows, and even with this being March and the prospects of spring coming soon, there seems to be no relief in sight..... I have long said that this cooling trend would happen due to the diminished solar radiation output from our Yellow Dwarf star, Sol, and now we are seeing that result with a massive... more »

And a brand new entry at No.24...

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 1 day ago
Except (possibly) for the young these days, it's certainly true that the BBC has permeated most of our lives to a remarkable degree. So much so that I doubt I'm alone in feeling a strange pang of regret that a BBC programme I've not listened to for 25 years is being moved. Yes, Radio One's Sunday chart show is moving to Friday night and, even though it doesn't really matter to me in the slightest, it seems oddly like sacrilege. In my teens 5 o'clock on Sunday, after Sunday dinner, was the time to get my C60 and C90 cassettes ready to record all the new entries. "Number 36", sang ... more »

March 1: What is an oligarchy? Words, words, words....

Graeme Decarie at The Moncton Times@Transcript - Good and Bad - 1 day ago
(It's Sunday. So I took a break from the daily news._ In political discussion, all of us frequently use words we don't really understand. The result is that the words come to have meaning only for the person speaking them - and that meaning is emotional, often with no connection with any reality. A prime example is the word 'communism'. Most people (including most journalists and politicians) have no idea what the word means. To them, its evil. That's it. To them, Stalin was a communist. (He wasn't.) Castro is a communist. (He isn't.) You even find people who call themselves commun... more »
