Alaska Pot Legalization Campaign Will Donate to Opponents if They Can Prove Alcohol Is Less Harmful Than Pot
This is one of the better political stuns I’ve heard about in a long time. The Alaska marijuana legalization ballot initiative campaign promised to donate to their opponent’s campaign if they can prove alcohol is safer than pot. From the Alaska Dispatch:
Humans can survive weeks without food, but only days without water — in some conditions, only hours. It may sound clichéd, but it’s no hyperbole: Water is life. So what happens when private companies control the spigot? Evidence from water privatization projects around the world paints a pretty clear picture — public health is at stake.
In the run-up to its annual spring meeting this month, the World Bank Group, which offers loans, advice and other resources to developing countries, held four days of dialogues in Washington, D.C. Civil society groups from around the world and World Bank Group staff convened to discuss many topics. Water was high on the list.
A study, to appear in the Fall 2014 issue of the academic journal Perspectives on Politics, finds that the U.S. is no democracy, but instead an oligarchy, meaning profoundly corrupt, so that the answer to the study’s opening question, “Who governs? Who really rules?” in this country, is:
“Nothing is impossible,except that the state of your mind makes it so.”
Prof John R.R. Searl
A revolutionary, non-profit organization of inventors, researchers, and cutting-edge thinkers is gaining major momentum in the information arena. This coalition, known as the Breakthrough Energy Movement, is comprised of prominent figures in the alternative or new energy movement.
One such individual is Fernando Vossa, who has worked on design teams for major brands such as Microsoft, Sony, US-WEST, GE-Aerospace, and is a technology ambassador for the Searl Magnetics Team, which is developing the Searl Effect Generator or SEG. The Searl Effect technology was developed by professor John R.R. Searl and allegedly can create an electromagnetic field, in turn powering itself from that field and the energy already present in our environment.
China Rejects Another shipment of GMO Animal Feed trying to be slipped in. 601,000 tons rejected last year
China is not accepting GMO corn/feed/food in any way. They rejected another shipment that tried to be slipped in for animal feed from the U.S.
Last year they rejected 601,000 tons of GMO corn. This shipment was 21,800 tons of corn from the U.S.
Why is it the U.S. is about the only country that allows GMO food? Why haven’t our ‘leaders’ protected us as the leaders protect their citizens in other countries. The other countries even protect their animals. Yet the U.S. allows the poison of GMO corn and food and won’t even require it to be labeled?
A mere two weeks since former JPMorgan banker, Kenneth Bellando jumped to his death, Bloomberg reports that the former CEO of Dutch Bank ABN Amro (and his wife and daughter) were found dead at their home after a possible “family tragedy.” This expands the dismal list of senior financial services executive deaths to 12 in the last few months. The 57-year-old Jan Peter Schmittmann, was reportedly discovered by his other daughter when she arrived home that morning. Police declined to comment on the circumstances of his (and his wife and daughter’s) death. This is not the first C-level ABN Amro banker to be found dead. In 2009, former CFO Huibert Boumeester was discovered with (assumed self-inflicted) shotgun wounds.
