Continue reading the main story Key Steps on the Path to Revolution As Slobodan Milosevic in Serbia and Viktor Yanukovych in Ukraine fell to the colour revolutions which swept across Eastern Europe, each of the democratic movements paid tribute to Sharp's contribution, yet he remained largely unknown to the public.

La Gran Fraternidad Universal y la "New Age" Serge Raynaud de la Ferriére, en realidad ni siquiera se llamaba así, se llamaba simplemente Serge Raynaud, se puso de "la Ferriére" para atribuirse títulos de nobleza. De la misma manera que quiso atribuirse títulos de nobleza pretendió atribuirse títulos académicos que no poseía; que no los poseía se encargo de establecerlo la Universidad dónde según él los había conseguido: la de Bruselas. En realidad, su oficio en Francia era el de perfumista; después pasó a la astrología y, desde ahí, dio el salto a “gurú”, estableciéndose en Venezuela y fundando allí su grupo. La Ferriére -llamémosle por su "nombre artístico"- como ya se ha dicho se autoproclamo avatar de Krishna, de Jesús -creo que de alguno que otro más- y Mesías. La Gran fraternidad Universal o GFU A partir de sus escritos y supuestos saberes estableció una organización de tipo “New Age” denominada Gran Fraternidad Universal. Se trata puramente de una secta “New Age”, de hecho se denominan a si mismos "acuarianos".

Honda messed with the wrong woman - Al Lewis By Al Lewis “I watched Schwarzenegger work the press,” Peters said, “and I learned how to be relevant.” Peters launched a website called dontsettlewithhonda.org where she is selling CDs of the evidence she gathered against Honda for $15. She also is re-activating her law license and is advising other unhappy Honda owners on how to file their own small-claims cases as an alternative to a low-ball, class-action settlement. She says she’s been hearing from hundreds of Honda owners and hasn’t even found time to answer all their emails. Some legal observers say she could stoke a grassroots movement in consumer litigation. Peters told me she would have happily settled with Honda before her case went to trial. “I wasn’t looking to get rich,” she said. Instead, she says she is now doing to Honda, everything she promised she would do: “They didn’t believe me when I told them, this is what I’m going to do to you, and I’m not kidding. The ongoing problem for Honda is that Peters has nothing to lose.

The Official Web Site of Zecharia Sitchin ad libitum Habéis salido de la jungla hace tan poco tiempo, y vuestro parentesco con los lémures y los prosimios es aún tan cercano, que os dirigís hacia la abstracción sin ser capaces de prescindir de las evidencias; por tanto, cualquier discurso os aburre y os repugna o, como mínimo, os provoca cierta insatisfacción; algo que ocurre incluso en el caso de los más célebres teóricos, de los mayores elucubradores, como atestiguan innumerables ejemplos entresacados de las confesiones íntimas de un buen número de científicos que, en su gran mayoría, reconocen que para la elaboración de sus razonamientos abstractos necesitan en gran medida apoyarse en cosas tangibles. Habéis confundido dos cosas completamente distintas al considerar que el grado de complejidad de un ser y su grado de perfección son rasgos inseparables. Consideráis que un alga es más simple, por tanto más primitiva, por tanto inferior a un águila. Cuanto mayor sea la Inteligencia del espíritu, menor cabida hay para el individuo.
