The Prophet of Garbage The Prophet of Garbage It sounds as if someone just dropped a tricycle into a meat grinder. I'm sitting inside a narrow conference room at a research facility in Bristol, Connecticut, chatting with Joseph Longo, the founder and CEO of Startech Environmental Corporation. As we munch on takeout Subway sandwiches, a plate-glass window is the only thing separating us from the adjacent lab, which contains a glowing caldera of "plasma" three times as hot as the surface of the sun. Every few minutes there's a horrific clanking noise—grinding followed by a thunderous voomp, like the sound a gas barbecue makes when it first ignites. "Is it supposed to do that?"
Purring Frequencies for Healing Purring Frequencies for Healing This preset utilizes binaural beats based on the approximate range of purring frequencies of domesticated cats, 27 to 44 Hz, which researchers now say can have restorative effects on the body, particularly the healing and strengthening of bones. From the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association Healing and the cat's purr - Fauna Communications Research Institute Scientists have discovered that the purring of cats is a "natural healing mechanism" that has helped inspire the myth that they have nine lives. Nine lives: wounded cats purr because it helps their bones and organs to heal Wounded cats - wild and domestic - purr because it helps their bones and organs to heal and grow stronger, say researchers who have analyzed the purring of different feline species. This, they say, explains why cats survive falls from high buildings and why they are said to have "nine lives". Exposure to similar sound frequencies is known to improve bone density in humans."

CLAIR and ALEXANDER COCKBURN Ariel Sharon was elected prime minister of Israel on February 6, 2001.

Greg Palast Chavez, Maduro and Venezuela the story they don’t want you to read By Greg Palast Venezuelan president Nicholás Maduro wrote on Op Ed published in the New York Times yesterday calling for peace. As someone who knows president Nicholás Maduro, Hugo Chavez' successor, (and Maduro's opponents), I can say that I’ve never met a head of state (and I’ve met many) who absolutely gives a real shit about the average working person of his nation. Venezuela is Occupy Wall Street on its head: the 1% are out in the street, violently hoping to overthrow the government elected by working people. Greg Palast
