The subconscious mind has proven through research that it is incapable of making selections of comparisons. It can cannot reason and is open to any suggestion no mater if it truth or false. The subconscious does not judge the information it only stores it. The mind however relates to the information and memories stored in the subconscious as truth.The subconscious has the ability to alter your personality. You will behave as if what in contained in the subconscious is truth. You can see this example in many forms of hypnosis, where the Hypnotist dictates to the sub conscious. Therefore what the hypnotist suggests to you therefore you are.The subconscious mind has proven through research that it is incapable of making... more

"I am thommo and I am a human being. I write this open request for help to all other human beings on this beautiful planet we share. The world that I am currently living in appears to be broken. It's not irreparable, but it is not far off. That's why I need every one to help me.
In my world, all the resources are used for the financial gain of big corporations and a greedy few that control them. They hold power over the governments in my world and none of them are interested in the needs of their people, in fact, many of them are actively trying to get rid of us. Also in my world, the people are very sick. Unfortunately all our scientists are trained by and have their research paid for by the big corporations. They no longer strive to make life better for us all, merely to make more money. They create cures and then invent the illness. They no longer look to prevent disease, they look to 'treat' it, prolonging the suffering and maximising the revenue stream. They tamper with the genetics of our crops 'for the good of mankind' as if mankind and nature didn't have it pretty well sorted already! Soon all our food will be genetically modified and so will we. Our scientists keep quiet when harmful chemicals and drugs are added to our food and water because if they spoke out they would lose their funding. Our power needs are based on dangerous nuclear power and resource wasting fossil fuels. We have the technology in my world to produce all our power through renewable resources such as solar and geothermal. There is little money in free energy so the corporations block the scientists from finding ways to utilise it for the good of us all. I need your help to set the scientists in my world free so that they can do what they are supposed to"~
(Although I have a biased opinion, I am so proud of what Zaniwhoop has created. We could spend years debating what is wrong in fine detail, but that leads to inaction and nothing will change! An easy place to start is positive thought and it will have such a big affect on everyone. That will give people the strength to unite globally to say 'no more' to the power structure that currently exists. Think positively, act with love and make the change you want happen.

Are we really currently witnessing a slow but sure forward movement by the World-Peace?
. THE INTRODUCTION:
It is indeed heartening to see the unmistakable signs of the promotion of the World-Peace despite numerous human and non-human disasters happening in the world.
. THE DISCUSSION:
Who would have expected that a recalcitrant Israeli government would agree to a UN probe into the flotilla raid? But, it has pleasantly happened, causing the progress of the peace in the West Asia. Already, the Israeli government has eased to some extent its Gaza blockade in the aftermath of the international outcry, resulting from this flotilla-fiasco, over the violation of the human-rights of the common Palestinians!
The international inquiry into the unfortunate deadly 31st May attack on a Gaza [Hamas-ruled]-bound Turkish-owned aid flotilla by the Israeli commandos killing 8 Turks and 1 Turkish-American said to have been resisting violently, shall be done by a four-person UNO panel led by the former New Zealand Prime Minister Geoffrey Palmer as chairperson and the Colombian President Alvaro Uribe as vice chairperson with 1 Turk and 1 Israeli as its members, with the mandate to submit its report by the mid-September, 2010.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian President said, “We are ready to sit down with Mr Obama face-to-face and put the global issues on the table, man-to-man, freely and in front of the media and see whose solutions are better.”
This statement reflects clearly the desire of the ruling establishment to come out of the current impasse with the USA. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian President is said to be a populist leader who is unpopular with both the Hardliners and the Reformists. This is only to be expected because Mahmoud Ahmadinejad appears to be actually trying to make Iran a modern nation-State, but without appearing to have been sold out to the Reformists, in an approach of trying to retain the support of the Hardliners.
Naturally, he cannot reform Iran 100% because then he would be chucked out by the Hardliners. This approach is seen as him playing into the hands of the Hardliners by the Reformists. This makes him unpopular with the Reformists. The Hardliners, on the other hand seem to be peeved at his Reformist zeal and so they too seem to be dead against him.
It’s only the majority-constituting ordinary Iranians who seem to be happy with him because of the populist measures put in place by him.
His above-quoted statement is a positive chance for the White House to seize the opportunity. Obama would be prudent enough to open up a constructive dialogue, if not an outright debate-challenge, immediately with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian President. Such peace-opportunities crop up rarely. The Wise statespersons do take advantage of such peace-building breaks in the interests of the world-peace.
One more unmistakable sign of the promotion of the world-peace can be seen in the USA’s decision to send an envoy on 6th of August, 2010 to commemorate the Uranium-bombing of the Japanese city Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and Nagasaki on August 9, 1945, any such first and the only Atomic attacks on human population anywhere in the world. This noble gesture by the USA can certainly be seen as the Healing Touch for Japanese people after a period of 65 years by the USA.
It would be enriching to know a bit about these two incidents. The USA air force detonated the Uranium-bomb called ‘the Little Boy’ 1,890 feet above the city of Hiroshima at 8:15 am on the 6th of August, 1945 through the gun-barrel method. The explosion affected the area within a radius of 2.5 km and caused 90,000 deaths immediately followed by 1,40,000 more deaths within few coming months. The harmful radiation from the Little Boy proved more devastating, as it could spread easily all around in view of the presence of a flat terrain.
The USA plane detonated the Plutonium-bomb called ‘the Fat Man’ 1,800 feet above the city of Nagasaki at 11:02 am on the 9th of August, 1945 through the Implosion-method. The Fat Man hit the area within a radius of 2 km worst, caused the death of 40,000 people instantly followed by the death of 70,000 more people within months. Here, the casualties were minimized due to the presence of the hilly terrain which prevented the spreading of the resultant harmful radiation over a larger swath of geographical area.
The hard line Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, perceived to be behind the current J & K turmoil, has been released from the Jail by Omar Abdullah, the J & K Chief Minister. Notwithstanding his long-held hard line position on getting the plebiscite done for the entire Kashmiri population to decide whether to join India or Pakistan in terms of the 1948 United Nations Security Council Resolutions, has now mercifully and peacefully issued an appeal to the people of the J & K to eschew violence that has already resulted into the death of 49 civilians in the last 3 months.
Syed Ali Shah Geelani said, “People should hold peaceful demonstrations and if they are stopped by the police, they should sit down on the roads, raise their hands and ask the police to shoot them. It will be far more effective.”
Fair enough for the cause of the peace in this part of the world. A peaceful demonstration would ensure no damage to the public property or the loss of lives of the security personnel.
Also, Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s this peaceful approach ensures that the security personnel aren’t left with any motivation or incentive to kill the protesting civilians. Already, indications are that his release from the prison and his consequent peace-appeal has reduced the incidents of stone-pelting in the state and minimized the human casualties.
We do sense a sense of the peace on the Indian government-Maoist front, also. Of late, there have been no big casualties on this front. The Indian government seems to have been spared by the opposition which was hell-bent upon blocking the parliamentary proceedings as usual, on the price-issue. This seems to have brought some peace on this front, too.
Additionally, the dirty political game of the allegations-counter allegations over the Common Wealth Games Corruption scandal has for the time being buried till these games are over in New Delhi. The warring leaders have decided to open up their shrill mouths only after the end of these games. The Indian government seems to have got some peace on this count till then.
It seems fairly enough that prayers of all those who are meditating and praying collectively or individually for the world-peace are being answered by the Almighty. Now, it is high time that the politically powerful ones on the globe ensured this peace process was kept going on the positive higher side.Are we really currently witnessing a slow but sure forward movement by the... more
HIV/AIDS-related stigma is not a straightforward phenomenon as attitudes towards the epidemic and those affected vary massively. Even within one country reactions to HIV/AIDS will vary between individuals and groups of people. Religion, gender, sexuality, age and levels of AIDS education can all affect how somebody feels about the disease. AIDS-related stigma is not static.

Fraud has become so endemic in this country that it's woven its way into America’s DNA.
April 29, 2010 |
Here are 10 ways the American economy is built on fraud:
1). Accounting Fraud: Last year, America’s leading banks were insolvent. They had tens or hundreds of billions in losses on their books, and the only way to wipe those losses out would be to either a) own up to the mess, raise enormous amounts of money on top of all the bailout money; or b) get out a big fat eraser, and wipe those losses off the books as if they never existed. The first option was nice and all, but a real hassle. So Geithner and Larry Summers chose Door Number Two: Accounting Fraud. They forced the FASB to accept a rule-change in the accounting methodology called “mark-to-model” which let banks decide how much their assets were worth, rather than letting the markets decide. So if for example a BofA owned a complex security called “Orion Butt Fungus” that was worth 5 pesos on the open market, but BofA was too broke to go out and raise 5 pesos to cover that loss, under the new accounting rules, the government told BofA that rather than pricing “Orion Butt Fungus” at what the market will actually pay for it, why not first ask, “How much would BofA like ‘Orion Butt Fungus’ to be worth, in a perfect world?’” If BofA answers, “Doyee, gee I dunno, how about $500 million?” then under the “mark-to-model” accounting rules, BofA could now value “Orion Butt Fungus” at $500 million, and voila! Their problems are over. That wasn’t so hard, was it? Suddenly, BofA looks like it knows how to pick winners! And no one’s going to second-guess them, because everyone else is mark-to-modeling their “Orion Butt Fungi” too! The end result: under the old rules, BofA would have had to raise money just to cover its debts, sort of like you and me have to do, and that’s just a lot of money going to waste. But now that its portfolio is so profitable, BofA has a much easier time raising money, which it uses to pay ginormous bonuses to its executives.
2). Big Pharma Fraud. Remember that scene early in Fight Club, when Edward Norton explained his job, when it was more profitable to let a car defect go and pay whatever lawsuit settlements come from the deaths, and when it’s better to recall the cars because the number of deaths will result in too many lawsuits? This is humanitarian do-gooder stuff compared to the savage real-world fraud-for-profit model that drives America’s drug companies. It’s really simple and it goes like this: the more fraud a drug company commits, so long as it’s off-the-scale fraud with the most horrible consequences for the victims, the drug company’s profits always outdo the criminal fines and lawsuits by factors of 20, 30, 100… It’s as simple as that. Because the billion in penalties here or the two billion in class action lawsuit settlements there are always far less than the tens of billions you earn from pushing harmful drugs on unsuspecting idiots. To wit: Between May 2004 and March 2010, a handful of top drug companies like Pfizer, Eli Lilly and Bristol-Myers paid over $7 billion in criminal penalties for bribing doctors to prescribe drugs for unapproved uses, with sometimes deadly consequences. However, as a Bloomberg report noted, the fines are always a fraction of the profits—Pfizer alone paid almost $3 billion in criminal fines since 2004, yet that was just one percent of their total revenues; Eli Lilly got busted bribing doctors to prescribe a schizophrenia drug, Zyprexa, to elderly patients suffering from dementia, even though company-run clinical trials showed an alarming death rate of 31 people out of 1,184 participants (double the placebo rate). Whatever—the market for elderly dementia patients meant billions in extra revenues. So Eli Lilly continued pushing Zyprexa on the elderly for another four years until it the Feds busted them. Eli Lilly got hit with $1.42 billion fine, but that was peanuts compared to the $36 billion it earned on Zyprexa sales from 2000-2008. To make it happen, the drug companies buy off all the checks and balances: lawsuits revealed the enormous bribes they pay to doctors, and even America’s medical journals are so corrupted by drug company influence that they’re no longer reliable as much more than hidden advertisements, according to a recent UCSF study. Medical journals are 5 times more likely to publish “positive” drug reviews than negative reviews, and one-quarter of all clinical trials are never published at all, leading doctors to prescribe drugs assuming they have all the information. The result: prescription drugs kill one American every five minutes …while Americans pay more for drugs than anyone in the world, spending a total of $12 billion on drugs in 1980 to spending $291 billion in 2008—a 1,700% increase. America is ranked only 17th in the world in life expectancy.Fraud has become so endemic in this country that it's woven its way into... more

In the warm, luminescent glow of the dust encrusted light fixture, the carpeted and dank hallway disappears into unvacuumed recesses. Darren grabs an unobtrusive handle along the wall's flimsy wood paneling, pulls, and a crack of light pierces the gloom. Pushing aside a black screen of Hefty bags intended to block light and trap heat, he reveals his miniature grow closet. A heavy, supple branch tumbles out. It brushes my hand, leaving a telltale streak of sticky, stinky moistness. The resin goes away with a bit of water. The smell stays.
A ventilator and wooden door couldn't dilute the pungent odor of the maturing female plants. When I point this out, Darren offers me only a mischievous smile. He's proud of this little closet-conversion. Six plants in all, two to a shelf, a 150-watt lamp substituting for sunlight in this hallway cupboard. "You can hide it no problem, but the smell is crazy. Next week my whole house is going to reek! Clipping and all that," he tells me. Ten days away from "pulling" the plants, Darren's "babies" are reaching their most odorous phase.
On this trip, Darren is very ill, a result of his 24-year battle with HIV and his many years as a homeless addict. But he meets with me anyway. He closes the cupboard and I follow the trailing ties of his plaid terrycloth bathrobe to his bedroom where he unceremoniously plops himself on a frameless mattress.
Darren possesses a medical marijuana care receiver ID card, a designation established by California voters in the 1996 Proposition 215, the "Compassionate Use Act", and its updated correlative, Senate Bill 420. "I want to be able to grow enough. I want to be able to do that for my sick friends. I have an obligation," Darren explains, making sure I know his intentions for growing weed. A religious man and a veteran, Darren is not keen on being perceived as a criminal or a profiteer. His medical marijuana prescription had expired 9 months before, but he hadn't been able to afford its replacement, rendering illegal his plants, stash and herbal gifts to another HIV-positive friend who had just suffered an aneurysm.
Of course, even with a prescription, it is all technically illegal because he lives in HUD-supported (read: federally governed) housing. Despite Attorney General Eric Holder's October 19 memorandum backing away from prosecuting medical marijuana in states that have legalized it, drug possession on "federal property" remains a felony and a basis to render Darren homeless again, excluding him from state and federal benefits for life.
"I have to sell my pain meds to get marijuana--my other medicine," he says. "I run short of pain meds every month. I freak out the last few days. Go buy from somebody else with the money I made from selling my meds before. Vicious circle."
It is vicious. Temper tantrums, green skin, hyperactivity or complete incapacitation. The pain meds allow him to get out of bed; the pot allows him to not vomit the meds and all his food. The monthly shuffle usually ends in fraught negotiations with friends for advances and loans, intensified by chronic and piercing pain.
The grow in his house allows him some room to maneuver. Noe, his cousin, set it up in return for a couch and sheets after she fled a dicey situation in Flint, Mich. "Do you know anybody that does identity changes?" he asks, suggesting Noe was actively melting, like so many before, into the haven of California's marijuana hills. Her experience growing hydroponic indoor pot for years in Flint, in factories long since abandoned, would come in handy. Changing the subject, he wrestles his dog into his lap, hugging and petting him with a heavy but careful hand.
Nursing a pipe and becoming more glassy-eyed by the moment, Darren compares Flint, which he describes as a "war zone" of burnt-out houses, to this town in Northern California's mythical "Emerald Triangle"More at link:In the warm, luminescent glow of the dust encrusted light fixture, the carpeted and... more
We are in a world of crisis. From economic collapse to environmental decay to climate change to war, hunger and poverty, our species seems to be headed fool speed ahead on a fast track to a train wreck.
But what if these crises presented the greatest opportunity in recorded history—conscious evolution?
The good news is that biology and evolution are on our side.
Contrary to what conventional science and religion have been telling us, evolution is neither random nor predetermined, but rather an intelligent dance between organism and environment. When conditions are ripe—either through crisis or opportunity—something unpredictable happens to bring the biosphere into a new balance at a higher level of coherence.
While we often perceive of examples of spontaneous remission as miraculous healings that happen by the grace of God, looking a little deeper we see something else at work. Quite often these fortunate individuals actively participate in their own healing by consciously or unconsciously making a key, significant change in their beliefs and behaviors.
So here is the bad news and the good news. The story of human life on Earth is yet to be determined. Spontaneous evolution will depend on whether we humans are willing to make changes in our individual and collective beliefs and behaviors, and whether we are able to make these changes in time.
For millennia, our spiritual teachers have been pointing us in the direction of relatedness and love. Now science is confirming that ancient wisdom. We are each and all cells in the body of an evolving giant super-organism we call humanity. Because humans have free will, we can choose to either rise to that new level of emergence or, in the manner of dinosaurs, fall by the wayside.
Like it or not, our future depends on the choices we make as a species....

SOS Outreach, a youth non-profit organization in Colorado, will give about 500 kids a chance to ride at six resorts in Colorado this weekend, including Vail, Keystone, Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin. The program is designed to introduce kids to snow sports who may never have had a chance to get involved:
More Than 500 Kids Will Hit the Mountains This Weekend
December 10, 2009 (DENVER, CO) — The nation’s largest youth winter sports nonprofit entered its 16th season of service in Colorado. This weekend, more than 500 students in Colorado will hit the slopes at half a dozen ski resorts courtesy of SOS Outreach.
The students will pick up tips from professional instructors to enhance their on-hill experience, but SOS Outreach founder and executive director Arn Menconi said participants will become involved in much more.
“Our aim is to give an experience of a lifetime to kids who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity,” he said. “At the same time, we use the ‘cool’ factor of snowboarding and skiing as a hook for a multi-year core value curriculum that inspires the students to become more involved in the community by giving back.”
SOS Outreach Global Program Director Jon Garrou said public service was a primary emphasis of the organization for not only the staff and student participants, but the broader community.
“Something happens when people see kids doing something to improve their community, and they want to support that,” he said, adding that last year about 750 adults pitched in with on-hill programs as well as service projects initiated by multi-year students. “Snowboarding may have been what brought everyone together, but it’s become something much larger and more meaningful.”
In all, SOS Outreach partners with 39 mountain resorts across nine states, Canada and New Zealand. Menconi said without the steady support of Vail Resorts, the organization would not have been able to expand.
Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz said the company was more than happy to partner with SOS Outreach.
“Working with SOS Outreach, we are able to give the experience of a lifetime to kids who may not have the opportunity,” Katz said. “SOS has taken the time to understand the best way to reach kids, and with the excitement of their first chair lift ride or their first turn, each of the SOS kids is an inspiration to every one of our employees who work with them. We hope the experience makes as big a positive impact on their lives as it has on ours.”
This year, 3,000 youth will enroll in winter sports programs with SOS Outreach, half of whom live in the Denver area. SOS Outreach will serve another 1,200 students in outdoor sports programs during the summer months, for a total of 20,000 participant days across its programs.

Coed Hills is situated in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan, just 8 miles west of Cardiff, Wales. At the heart of Coed Hills lies a core community of around 20 people that embrace the new and old in order to lead a more sustainable existence, both ecologically and socially.
The site is run on alternative energy, there is permaculuture garden, and residents and volunteers live a variety of structures such as Mongolian Yurts, tipis and straw bailed buildings.
The place is an inspiration for the budding and more experienced eco-conscious, and a chance to engage with the community engage and share in their knowledge and enthusiasm for sustainable living.
This short film is part of "The Journey" an unique documentary project that delves into environmental, socio-culture and economic issues, with a questioning mind.
The focus of the project is to find and film inspiring ideas and projects over a wide spectrum of individuals and cultures, whilst examining our ability to reform our ideals, and our lifestyle in order to make positive changes for our planet and the human race.
The “Journeymen” (a person whom travels in order to gain experience, skills and knowledge) go in search of these stories - equipped only with minimal filming gear and personal possessions, they document their experience as they travel to global communities to observe, question and learn.
It is an organic process that grows, evolves and takes it’s own direction. With no planned route nor destination, the journeymen believe they will connect with the right people and places at the right time to film, aid and guide them on.
The project is currently filming and traveling through the UK. As the project travels short films are uploaded that can be viewed on this website. It is the long-term goal that this project will travel internationally to create a feature length film that will be released, to be viewed for free.
The projects aims to benefit individuals, projects and communities by sharing knowledge, offering solutions and connecting people through film.
It is the hope this project will touch and inspire people, by conveying the beauty within human nature and our world and resonating what is actually possible, when it comes it comes to our ability to change the world for the better.
