“The Failing Pursuit of the Truth…”

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 3 minutes ago
*“The Failing Pursuit of the Truth…”* by Cullen Roche "A little over 8 years ago I started writing this blog about the financial crisis. The website became surprisingly popular and within a few months was generating millions of page views per month. It was a scary time and I noticed an obvious trend in my writing– writing about scary things attracted a lot more attention than anything else. But as the years unfolded the world became less scary to me. By 2010 I was fully in the “recovery” camp and trying to explain why the world might not be as bad off as some thought. It was not a ... more »

*"The 12 Rules of Survival"* *Who Lives, Who Dies and Why*by Laurence Gonzales "As a journalist, I've been writing about accidents for more than thirty years. In the last 15 or so years, I've concentrated on accidents in outdoor recreation, in an effort to understand who lives, who dies, and why. To my surprise, I found an eerie uniformity in the way people survive seemingly impossible circumstances. Decades and sometimes centuries apart, separated by culture, geography, race, language, and tradition, the most successful survivors–those who practice what I call “deep survival”– go ... more »

*"The Truth Will Not Set You Free"* by William Berry “We do not see the world as it is. We see the world as we are.” This quote has been attributed to both the Talmud and Anaïs Nin (although an actual citation for neither quote can be found). This quote summarizes the idea that truth, the truth that one perceives, is subjective and can be wrong. We have long been taught that the truth will set us free, and that seeking the truth is a worthy goal. What if there is no absolute truth? What if there are just degrees of truth (or lies) that we tell ourselves? What if, as some insightful... more »

Standing at the house door, revelling in Autumn

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 9 hours ago
A beautiful photo of Crummock Water, newly taken by Paul Bullen This is proving a particularly beautiful English Autumn. I've been avidly watching the leaves wiltering, and dropping, and forming a splendour of trash on the ground. The pull of hibernation is blowing briskly through the strained mesh of Autumn's trees and I'm busy reading a ridiculously expensive but reassuringly huge 'complete works' of the late Geoffrey Hill which I bought last winter and from which I stolen all the poetic stuff earlier (from a single poem in his collection *Expostulations on the Volcano*).

Graeme Decarie at The Decarie Report - 9 hours ago
The problem is not Trump. And it's not Clinton. The problem is much worse because it's a permanent one. The problem is the final crash of American society and morality. And the crash has allowed Trump and Clinton to float to the top. Even in a healthy society, people like them might float into prominence. But two of them? Rising to the top of the only significant parties? No. This is a complete collapse of all values. And a major cause of that collapse is news media which have stirred panic, racial and national hatreds to justify endless killing and, most recently, have made a farce... more »

*The Dakota pipeline as an example of government malfunction* Uncertainty. Perhaps the worst of words for private sector investors. The free market is filled to the brim with it. One rarely if ever knows how things will transpire. You measure twice – if not three, four or five times. And then you cut your deal. Then you cross your fingers – and hope for the best. And with all of that – eight out ten businesses fail. Ouch. But that’s the nature of the private sector. If you want a successful, vibrant economy – you have to acknowledge and accept this uncertainty as a part of the de... more »

US Plan "C" in Syria: Make Al Qaeda Central the New Capital

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 17 hours ago
*November 5, 2016* (Tony Cartalucci - NEO) - In reality, since even before Syria's conflict began unfolding in 2011, the United States had been planning for the nation's division and destruction through the use of militant proxies allied to Al Qaeda since as early as 2007. Like Libya, Syria was meant to be swiftly overwhelmed by covert terrorism and military operations backed by the West and its regional allies, as well as a torrent of psychological, economic, and even cyber warfare.

Nov. 4: The Last Empire

Graeme Decarie at The Decarie Report - 1 day ago
In Wednesday's editorial for the irving press, the writer praised the Canada Europe Trade Deal on the argument that free trade creates prosperity for all. That is pure rubbish. The very existence of Canada was made possible by a protective tariff. And Canada ran on a protective tariff for generations. Free trade always creates a loser. Often if makes losers of everyone but the very wealthy as it moves jobs to the cheapest possible countries as the wealthy bleed those countries financially and socially. That's what made a ghost town out of Detroit; and it creates poverty and misery ... more »

Where There's Disgust, There's Hope

Karen Garcia at Sardonicky - 1 day ago
With a new poll revealing that more than eight in ten voters are disgusted with politics, the big unanswered question is this: what in holy hell is up with that other 16-20 percent? Are they on drugs? More likely, they're in the same smug crowd as the top quintile of earners who've escaped the lasting depredations of the 2008 financial crisis. But that variable wasn't part of the polling agenda. You see, in corporate Thought Leader World, there's no such thing as the class war.

In an exclusive interview with journalist John Pilger, Julian Assange accuses Hillary Clinton of misleading Americans about the true scope of Islamic State’s support from Washington’s Middle East allies. Julian Assange says Hillary promoted the creation of ISIS and used the Clinton Foundation and her position as U.S. Secretary of State to advance questionable agendas on behalf of the establishment and their Gulf allies. “I think this is the most significant email in the whole collection.” The second excerpt from John Pilger’s interview with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will be... more »

Fighting their way into the city this week, soldiers have gained a foothold in the eastern districts. A ... more »

The HDL correlations in CANHEART probably don't mean what the druglords will want them to mean

George Henderson at The High-fat Hep C Diet - 1 day ago
The CANHEART study findings on HDL have made a big splash, supposedly debunking the idea that raising HDL is a good idea. Of course, raising HDL with drugs by sticking a spanner in the works at some point has never been an effective strategy, and there are genetic polymorphisms that give elevated HDL of little worth, but healthy diet and lifestyle changes that are reasonably expected to extend life always raise HDL a bit. Is this meaningless? In CANHEART very high HDL cholesterol was actually associated with higher non-cardiovascular mortality.[1] Especially levels over 90 mg/dl (2... more »
