A Devil’s Advocate Rings in a Bad Night for Bankers

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
*-by Skip Kaltenheuser* It was a long hard slog to publish *Lucifer's Banker*. Had Brad Birkenfeld managed to get his book out say, a year or so earlier, we might not be staring at the political train wreck we are now. It might have changed the political landscape, perhaps the standard bearers. Maybe even elevated different issues for the last lap beyond the cursory checklist now fed us. But I’m glad it’s arrived. This book underscores every lament Bernie Sanders uttered about the gravity of the finance sector's black hole. There's ample material to make Washington insiders lose s... more »

*“Finding It Where You Are”* by Chet Raymo “Yes, I've been to Walden. Been there several times, in fact. With students. We sat on the earth at the site of the cabin and read from the book. And the wind stirred the pines, and the hickories, and the oaks, and rippled the pond that shone like silver in the early morning sun. And then, to honor the spirit of the man we came to visit, we sat silently, as if on the stoop of his cabin with friends, knowing that any words, even his own, intruded on the haunting beauty of the place itself. Walden Pond Mary Oliver has a poem called "Going To ... more »

According to research, exposure to atrazine in utero can cause genital deformation in young boys, including the development of a micropenis, medically known as microphallus.

*"Ask Me"* "Some time when the river is ice ask me mistakes I have made. Ask me whether what I have done is my life. Others have come in their slow way into my thought, and some have tried to help or to hurt: ask me what difference their strongest love or hate has made. I will listen to what you say. You and I can turn and look at the silent river and wait. We know the current is there, hidden, and there are comings and goings from miles away that hold the stillness exactly before us. What the river says, that is what I say." - William Stafford

"The Unique Human Capacity for War"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 4 hours ago
*"The Unique Human Capacity for War"* By Michael Brenner The question “why war?” has long inspired scholars to seek answers in human nature. Their findings invariably have been ambiguous and judgments inconclusive. While it is easy to make the case that humans do engage in violent behavior as part of their nature, there is no basis for arguing that they are “killers.” There is no propensity to kill fellow humans that prevails over other forms of social inter-action. Moreover, the development of organized societies as their standard habitat introduces cultural and structural elemen... more »

Bermuda Triangle Mystery Solved?- Air Bombs In Atlantic

Scientists claim to have solved the age old mystery of why some ships and aircraft vanish in the Bermuda Triangle, a 500,000 km square patch of ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda.

They can create 170mph winds and massive waves capable of downing planes and flipping over ships.

Edmondo Burr at Your News Wire - 13 hours ago
Holistic doctors looking to cure cancer and eradicate harmful unnecessary medical procedures are being found dead in mysterious circumstances, mostly suicides.

For decades, medical professionals, pharmaceutical labs and chemists from around the world have tried to find the antidote to cancer and year after year they fail miserably. The cancer industry needs cancer to stay in business. Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet ran a clinic in Georgia ‘treating children with Autism’ using unconventional me... more »

Dangerous Fault Lines Under San Francisco Found To Be Connected

Two of the most dangerous earthquake faults in the San Francisco Bay Area are connected, meaning both could rupture simultaneously and unleash major devastation, a new study has found. A previously unseen fault line has been discovered, doubling the length of the existing quake faults and threatening an even more colossal earthquake. USGS geologists published their findings in the Science Advances journal, which suggest that if a quake on the connected Rodgers Creek and Hayward faults were to happen, the energy from the trembler could be five times greater than the devastating Lom...more »

"A Look to the Heavens"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
“Long before Stonehenge was built, well before the Dead Sea Scrolls were written, ancient artists painted life-sized figures on canyon walls in Utah, USA- but why? Nobody is sure. The entire panel of figures, which dates back about 7,000 years, is called the Great Gallery and was found on the walls of Horseshoe Canyon in Canyonlands National Park. *Click image for larger size.* The humans who painted them likely hunted Mammoths. The unusual fuzziness of largest figure led to this mural section's informal designation as the Holy Ghost Panel, although the intended attribution and socie... more »

“If someone in your life talked to you the way you talk to yourself, you would have left them long ago.” - Carla Gordon “The opinion which other people have of you is their problem, not yours.” - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross “We only feel dehumanized when we get trapped in the derogatory images of other people or thoughts of wrongness about ourselves.” - Marshall Rosenberg “My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality.” - Oscar Wilde

Chet Raymo, “The Sound And Fury”

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*“The Sound And Fury”* by Chet Raymo “Not so long ago, I mentioned here Himmler and Heydrich, two of Hitler's most terrible henchmen. A friend said to me: "If there's no afterlife, no heaven or hell, then those two diabolical creatures got away with it. Their fate was no different than that of any one of their victims, an innocent child perhaps." And, yes, if there is no God who dispenses final justice, then we are left with an aching feeling of irresolution, of virtue unrewarded, of vice unpunished. Heydrich was gunned down by partisan assassins, and Himmler committed suicide a fe... more »

Blame Russia For Everything

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*Rod Liddle, The Spectator:* *Stop this stupid sabre-rattling against Russia* *It’s not their side that worries me; it’s ours.* I have been wondering these last few weeks whether it would be cheaper to excavate a basement and buy a Geiger counter and iodine tablets, or emigrate to New Zealand. Call me frit, but I don’t like the way things are heading. Probably the second option is easier: Armageddon outta here, etc. I can re-enact Nevil Shute’s On the Beach from some rocky cove near Dunedin, waiting for the fallout to arrive.

*“On The Damned Human Race”* by Mark Twain “I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the lower animals (so-called), and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man. I find the result humiliating to me. For it obliges me to renounce my allegiance to the Darwinian theory of the Ascent of Man from the Lower Animals; since it now seems plain to me that the theory ought to be vacated in favor of a new and truer one, this new and truer one to be named the Descent of Man from the Higher Animals.

The end of meat?

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 1 day ago
The great news is that we can produce a vegetable product that tastes like meat. That will serve to take the pressure of the meat industry to supply all our high quality protein needs. This needs to be done regardless. Animals are an integral part of effective organic farming and this produces a natural supply of meats. If anything industrial farming seriously under utilizes the animals abilities. It is naturally wasteful as well. They will not be going away soon If anything many other species will be equally successful. As noted we are also learning to convert insects... more »

Trump On The Fake War Against ISIS In Mosul

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 1 day ago
Trump told the truth about *the politicized timing of the battle for Mosul*. Only an idiot thinks politics didn't have anything to do with the plan to liberate Mosul at this point in time. The sad truth is that Mosul didn't need to be liberated if it had been protected more willfully. The Iraqis, the Americans, the Saudis, and the Barzani-led Kurdish government ceded Iraqi territory to ISIS on purpose. They sacrificed the Ezidis to them on that mountain. Not a fan of ISIS, but the Iraqis and the "coalition" don't deserve to win this war, not after that shameful deed. Now they're... more »
