What Your Levels of Sensitivity Say About You

by Soren Dreier The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, and create— so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, … Continue reading What Your Levels of Sensitivity Say About You

8 Reptilian Traits In Human Beings

by Gregg Prescott, In5D Guest, Waking Times According to Sumerian legend, the Anunnaki genetically manipulated our genetics and created three versions of what we know as mankind, today. The Anunnaki may have reptilian blood too, as they intermixed with their creations. We don’t specifically know how our DNA was manipulated. What we DO know is that only 20 of the 64 codons in our DNA are active. Imagine what you could do if ALL of your codons were activated? I address this idea in the article, “How Can We Change Our DNA Right Now?“. Additionally, our human DNA differs dramatically from all … Continue reading 8 Reptilian Traits In Human Beings

Trust in mainstream media plummets: Only 2% of young adults trust the media

by: Daniel Barker (NaturalNews) Trust in the mainstream media appears to be taking a nosedive, at least among young people. A recent Harvard Institute of Politics poll that queried more than 3,000 people between the ages of 18 and 29 found that only 2 percent of them believe that the media can be trusted to do the “right thing” on a regular basis. The poll found that 88 percent of those polled think that the media only “sometimes” or “never” does the right thing. In fact, a whopping 39 percent said the media “never” does the right thing. This places … Continue reading Trust in mainstream media plummets: Only 2% of young adults trust the media

Neil Young Announces Anti-Monsanto Album ‘Monsanto Years’

Legendary music icon Neil Young will be taking a stand against Monsanto in his latest album release, The Monsanto Years. In a move that highlights just how far awareness on the issue of Monsanto’s toxic creations has come, Young will be working with the Willie Nelson sons in highlighting Monsanto’s activities within the new album.

Islamophobia: Israel’s Blessing; Israel’s Curse

by ANDREW LEVINE Islamophobia and anti-Semitism have a great deal in common. Except that one targets Jews and the other Muslims, the two seem almost the same, even allowing for differences in the affected populations. To produce an Islamophobic diatribe, take a typical anti-Semitic rant, substitute “Muslim” for “Jew,” and voilà. Both Islamophobia and anti-Semitism call on deeply entrenched cultural stereotypes, and both have roots in Christianity’s longstanding, theologically driven, animosity-ridden opposition to rival “Abrahamic” faiths. But neither Islamophobia nor anti-Semitism is about religion per se; they are forms of racism. As such, they are modern phenomena. And they are … Continue reading Islamophobia: Israel’s Blessing; Israel’s Curse

How on earth do they survive in that ‘hell called Gaza’?

by Stuart Littlewood War-weary mother writes: “Schools work in 2 or 3 shifts a day especially in areas where displaced people of the last war still shelter in UNRWA schools; they don’t have any other place to go.” “Travel is not a lifestyle in Gaza… It is difficult for us to live or to leave.” “We just dream of leading a decent life.” Nearly every Palestinian I have met over the years has urged me to tell their story when I get home. Some have written to me with very moving accounts of life and hardship under Israel’s brutal occupation, … Continue reading How on earth do they survive in that ‘hell called Gaza’?

How Prisons Have Become a Cash Cow For the Rich

Prison phone contracts have become a major source of revenue for state and local governments. By Thom Hartmann Rampant privatization is wreaking havoc on our society. Case in point: what’s happened over the past few decades with prison phone services. It used to be that if you were incarcerated at, say, the state penitentiary or the local jail you could call your family collect for as little as $4 an hour. But then, states began signing contracts with private phone companies like AT&T, who, in turn, began charging sky-high rates for phone calls between prisoners and their families. A 15-minute … Continue reading How Prisons Have Become a Cash Cow For the Rich

The Coriolis Effect explained

By Mandelbrot Why do storms spin in different directions depending on their location—and why do they spin in the first place?  After watching this video, contemplate how jet streams work. Also, think of how the Coriolis Effect influenced the path of Nazi V2 rockets on their path northward to England. Consider this also affects ocean currents over the thousands of miles they cover. – See more at: http://disinfo.com/2015/05/coriolis-effect-explained/#sthash.z01IZCVF.dpuf   Continue reading The Coriolis Effect explained
