Current estimates of the world's peak population are made with assumptions that don't take into account the major role that globalization is having. This means the earth's population will reach its peak sooner than official forecasts predict and because there is no visible counterforce compelling the majority of couples to have more than 3 kids each, world population will rapidly fall after reaching its peak. It will diminish to our level by 2060 and keep falling. Challenge Kelly! Challenge Kevin Kelly to a bet on this prediction! Detailed Terms
U.S. School District to Begin Microchipping Students
(NaturalNews) A Rhode Island school district has announced a pilot program to monitor student movements by means of radio frequency identification (RFID) chips implanted in their schoolbags. The Middletown School District, in partnership with MAP Information Technology Corp., has launched a pilot program to implant RFID chips into the schoolbags of 80 children at the Aquidneck School. Each chip would be programmed with a student identification number, and would be read by an external device installed in one of two school buses. The buses would also be fitted with global positioning system (GPS) devices. Parents or school officials could log onto a school web site to see whether and when specific children had entered or exited which bus, and to look up the bus's current location as provided by the GPS device. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has criticized the plan as an invasion of children's privacy and a potential risk to their safety. Brown disputed this argument.

Joseph Moshe (MOSSAD Microbiologist): “Swine flu vaccine is bioweapon” | You can't make this up
Joseph Moshe, MOSSAD Sponsored by the Derma roller Today, the MSM are not talking about this case any more. Yesterday, they wanted us to believe that Joseph Moshe was a nutcase and a terrorist, arrested for threatening to bomb the White House. Interesting detail about his arrest (the “Westwood standoff”) was that he seemed to be immune to the 5 cans of tear gas and 5 gallons of law-enforcement grade pepper spray they pumped into his face. Professor Moshe had called into a live radio show by Dr. Sources tell us that Bar-Joseph Moshe made no threat against the President or the White House. Joseph Moshe was soon after his arrest sent or let go to Israel. Moshe did not suffer the same effects of the gas and pepper spray that others would have because he had built up an immunity to such weapons as a by-product of his Mossad training. Does this sound like an insane conspiracy theory? Where’s the meat? Qui bono? A Spanish Doctor in Internal Medicine largely agrees with the above article:
Rick Warren, Tony Blair & The New World Order « . . . and the world hears them
Roger Oakland, of Understand the Times International, attended Rick Warren’s ‘Peace in a Globalized Society’ forum, featuring Tony Blair, that was held Monday night. As an eyewitness account, Oakland gives the following report: On March 7, 2011, Roger Oakland, founder ofUnderstand the Times, International, and two other members from his ministry attended the Peace in a Globalized Society forum at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, which featured Rick Warren and special guest, former UK prime minister Tony Blair. Roger Oakland and his co-workers obtained eye-witness seats at the event that included well over 2000 people in attendance. Although cameras and recorders were not allowed in the main sanctuary where the interview took place, the UTT team took notes. What Oakland and his team heard caused them much concern – thus the reason for this special report. Both Blair and Warren have a vision to see churches with like-minded vision planted all over the world. Notes: 1.

Why Self-Compassion Trumps Self-Esteem
In this incredibly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? I remember once, as a freshman in college, after spending hours getting ready for a big party, I complained to my boyfriend that my hair, makeup, and outfit were woefully inadequate. He tried to reassure me by saying, “Don’t worry, you look fine.” Juan Estey “Fine? Oh great, I always wanted to look fine . . .” The desire to feel special is understandable. Not very well. How can we grow if we can’t acknowledge our own weaknesses? Continually feeding our need for positive self-evaluation is a bit like stuffing ourselves with candy. The result is often devastating. And of course, the goalposts for what counts as “good enough” seem always to remain out of reach. Another way So what’s the answer? When I first came across the idea of “self-compassion,” it changed my life almost immediately. After getting my Ph.D., I did two years of postdoctoral training with a leading self-esteem researcher.

Lasting Happiness Found With Hallucinogen Use?
September 29, 2011 Researchers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine studying psilocybin, the mind-altering chemical in “magic mushrooms,” found that the chemical may actually alter people´s personalities for a long period of time, ABC News is reporting. The study involved one high dose of psilocybin administered to 51 adult study participants and found that 30 of them underwent measurable personality changes lasting more than a year. The aspect of personality that changed is known as openness. Openness, the authors wrote, “encompasses aesthetic appreciation and sensitivity, imagination and fantasy, and broad-minded tolerance of others´ viewpoints and values.” Measured on a widely used and scientifically validated personality inventory, changes in openness were larger in magnitude than changes typically observed in healthy adults over decades of life experiences, the scientists say. “The mystical experience has certain qualities,” MacLean said.
