Basic income

Basic income
An unconditional basic income (also called basic income, basic income guarantee, universal basic income, universal demogrant,[1] or citizen’s income) is a proposed system[2] of social security in which all citizens or residents of a country regularly receive an unconditional sum of money, either from a government or some other public institution, in addition to any income received from elsewhere. A basic income is typically intended to be only enough for a person to survive on, so as to encourage people to engage in economic activity. A basic income of any amount less than the social minimum is sometimes referred to as a 'partial basic income'. On the other hand, it should be high enough so as to facilitate any socially useful activity someone could not afford to engage in if dependent on working for money to earn a living.[citation needed] Basic income systems financed on returns to publicly owned enterprises are major components in many proposals for market socialism.

Police in North Carolina Patrol in a Corvette The nonpolice version of the Corvette Z06. Speeders in Wake County, N.C., will have to go pretty fast if they want to outrun the police department’s latest interceptor — a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Wake County police recently seized the Corvette from a drug dealer, said David Cooke, the county manager, according to the News & Observer. The car is being used to patrol Interstate 40. The county sheriff, Donnie Harrison, however, was apparently less forthcoming with the local paper. “You’re not going to force me to talk about anything, you understand?”

UPDATED: Ron Van Dyke: I Finally Met with Mr. Sino of SWISSINDO w/a Comment from Mel Ve Ron Van Dyke: I Finally Met with Mr. Sino of SWISSINDO January 25, 2014 I found this update from Ron to be VERY interesting. As you all may have noticed I haven't mentioned or published anything about SWISSINDO since their big unveiling earlier last year. There was just too much hype and speculation being tossed around, with a range of contradictory stories, I didn't want to touch it until there was something more "concrete."

Egocide and suicide | The Psychology of Me Lately, I’ve been thinking about egocide. (Why does my autocorrect want to change that to “geocode”??)

The lawsuit that could end the gangster rule of Western civilization The lawsuit that could end the gangster rule of Western civilization November 24th, 2011 A lawsuit was filed today (November 23rd US time) that could end the secret government that has ruled Western civilization for at least the past 300 years.

This is Why I'll Never be an Adult I have repeatedly discovered that it is important for me not to surpass my capacity for responsibility. Over the years, this capacity has grown, but the results of exceeding it have not changed. Normally, my capacity is exceeded gradually, through the accumulation of simple, daily tasks. But a few times a year, I spontaneously decide that I'm ready to be a real adult.

Domesticated silver fox The result of over 50 years of experiments in the Soviet Union and Russia, the breeding project was set up in 1959[1] by Soviet scientist Dmitri Belyaev. It continues today at The Institute of Cytology and Genetics at Novosibirsk, under the supervision of Lyudmila Trut. Initial experimentation[edit] The Green Hilton Agreement - Geneva 1963 By 1961, Keynes predictions of a world monetary crisis began to become a reality. This problem was brought about by the lack of sufficient currency (especially US Dollars) in world circulation to support the rapidly expanding international commerce. The World needed US Dollars beyond the capacity of the good faith and credit of the United States Taxpayer in order to facilitate trade. It was not possible to break the Bretton Woods treaty due to the possible damage of the stable core of the world’s economy as this had the potential of leading to another major war. To compound the problem, the majority of dollars in circulation were in private banks, multinational corporations, private businesses and individual bank accounts. In 1963 the gold that had been entrusted to the care of President Soekarno was recalled by the Nations to underpin the issuance of further US Dollars in order to further facilitate international trade.

Subtype - Wikisocion From Wikisocion A subtype system is a way of distinguishing between the personalities of people who are of the same (socionic) type. Many socionists use some kind of subtype system to help describe intratype differences (variations in personality, behavior, and/or appearance among people of the same socionic type). A number of such systems exist, and a collection of machine translated descriptions are available here. EPA Looking to take control of all Waterways: Millions of Americans could Lose Property Rights The Environmental Protection Agency is in the middle of drafting a set of rules that will vastly expand the agencies power, and could cause millions of Americans to lose their property rights. The draft rules, as reported by the Daily Caller, will redefine the term “waters of the United States” to include all “tributaries, regardless of size and flow, and all lakes, ponds and wetlands within a floodplain.” This means almost any piece of property could be declared a wetland by the EPA, making way for the takeover of private property across the country.

Is K Okay? Using Ketamine to Treat Depression | Portland Psychotherapy There have been some articles on the National Public Radio (NPR) website about the use of the drug ketamine as a fast acting treatment for depression (See here and here). Originally developed as an anesthetic, ketamine is better known to the public as the club drug Special K. Beginning with a study published in 2006 from a group of researchers with the National Institute of Health (NIH), ketamine has been explored as possible treatment for depression, and researchers are currently looking for chemically similar alternatives to ketamine with less potential for abuse. A shortcoming for current antidepressants such as a Prozac is that it usually takes weeks to kick in, and even then, 30-40% of people don’t benefit. By contrast, studies suggest that intravenously-administered (IV) ketamine can improve mood in a matter of hours, and that change appears to last a week or two. For someone who is profoundly depressed and suicidal, this may be a useful alternative to inpatient hospitalization.

VITALLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SWISSINDO- MORE TO COME Please take note of this! THIS is VITAL information that people need to know and understand. I am pulling together some more information this evening and will post it in the next few hours. Is Ketamine the Next Big Depression Drug? For 20 years Joan quietly suffered from an unrelenting desire to commit suicide. She held down a job as a special-education teacher and helped care for her family in the northeastern U.S. Yet day after day she struggled through a crushing depression and felt neither joy nor pleasure. Except for the stream of psychiatrists recommending different antidepression treatments—all of which failed to provide relief—Joan kept her condition private. She says it was the fear of hurting her students or abandoning her father that kept her alive. “I really don't know how I survived,” she says.
