Sustainability for a Futurist : Health In continuation to Aliston’s Sustainability for a Futurist : Technology, he covers health, alternative medicines, ancient techniques now forgotten and a technique that cured 98% of fatal cancers. Alternative medicine systems The modern medical system, also rooted in the materialist paradigm, analyses symptoms and then suppresses it with synthetic chemicals but it does little to determine the root cause and suggest preventative measures in the first place. The drugs usually have a whole bunch of side effects. They are synthetic so usually use up nutrients in helping the body deal with the elimination of a non natural substance and this ties up the absorption of other nutrients. All this at a time when the body is least capable of coping with it.
Eric Zuesse – Obama v. Putin: Their Debate on Crimea (I) - Strategic Culture Foundation - on-line journal > Obama v. Putin: Their Debate on Crimea (I) The Source of the ‘New Cold War’: The Basic Disagreement Between Obama and Putin The basic disagreement between U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the source of the economic sanctions against Russia, and ’the new cold war,’ concerns the question of whether the process by which Crimea separated from Ukraine and joined Russia was, as Obama says, «aggression» by Russia, an illegal «seizure» of Crimea by Russia; or, on the other hand, as Putin says, a thoroughly legal and democratic act by the people of Crimea, to exercise their right of self-determination, via a referendum. Many of the points that will be referred-to, along the way here, are going to be opposite to the views that are widespread in the West; and, so, wherever that is the case, clicking onto the linked source will enable you easily to check what’s being said, if it conflicts with what you ‘know’ or have previously been told. This is like George W.
Gaia hypothesis The study of planetary habitability is partly based upon extrapolation from knowledge of the Earth's conditions, as the Earth is the only planet currently known to harbour life The Gaia hypothesis, also known as Gaia theory or Gaia principle, proposes that organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a self-regulating, complex system that contributes to maintaining the conditions for life on the planet. Topics of interest include how the biosphere and the evolution of life forms affect the stability of global temperature, ocean salinity, oxygen in the atmosphere and other environmental variables that affect the habitability of Earth. Introduction Less accepted versions of the hypothesis claim that changes in the biosphere are brought about through the coordination of living organisms and maintain those conditions through homeostasis.
NASA’s Fission Nuclear Reactor Designed to Rule Moon and Mars The main point is that nuclear power has the ability to provide a power-rich environment to the astronauts or science packages anywhere in our solar system and that this technology is mature, affordable and safe to use, says James E. Werner, the lead researcher of the project. Contrary to the conventional nuclear plants, spanning across hectares of lands and requiring huge cooling tanks, the nuclear fission power reactor is as small as 1 1/2 feet wide by 2 1/2 feet high. With the cutting-edge technology of the fission reactors, the suitcase-sized plants can provide enormous amount of power compared to their predecessor, making them ideal to carry and use for the astronauts in space.

Magnesium and Depression: Keeping Your Head Above Water In depression studies of mice, researchers literally throw them into a water tank and observe them swimming. Healthy mice meet the challenge and swim. Depressed mice may swim at first but they will soon wear out and the only movements they will make in that tank of water are the minimal movements necessary to keep their heads above water.
State Sponsors of Terrorism: US Planned and Carried out 9/11 Attacks, but Blames Other Countries for Them Out MEMRI - Middle East Media Research Institute On the eve of President Obama’s April 2016 visit to Saudi Arabia, the U.S. Congress began debating the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), that would, inter alia, allow the families of victims of the September 11 attacks to sue the Saudi government for damages. Also in April 2016, the New York Times published that a 2002 congressional inquiry into the 9/11 attacks had found that Saudi officials living in the United States at the time had a hand in the plot. The commission’s conclusions, said the paper, were specified in a report that has not been released publicly.
The Guide to Eco-Friendly Backpacking Travel Many of us try to lead eco-conscious lifestyles at home – reducing the amount of packaging we throw away, recycling when possible, and eating responsibly-sourced food. However, staying green while you’re on the road is easier said than done – but really there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to enjoy yourself while travelling without harming the environment. If you’ve finally decided to take the big plunge to explore your chosen destination, it’ll most likely be an exotic and far-flung place and flying there will be inevitable. Booking your flight couldn’t be simpler these days, with numerous booking engines such as Teletext Holidays (UK) or Kayak (USA). Flying greatly increases your carbon footprint. However, if you are truly committed to being an eco-traveller, there are steps you can take to reduce it.
Stockholm syndrome Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness. The FBI's Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 8 percent of victims show evidence of Stockholm syndrome. Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other." One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. History
Dead Sea an Exhibit at the Library of Congress, Washington, DC The exhibition Scrolls From the Dead Sea: The Ancient Library of Qumran and Modern Scholarship brings before the American people a selection from the scrolls which have been the subject of intense public interest. Over the years questions have be en raised about the scrolls' authenticity, about the people who hid them away, about the period in which they lived, about the secrets the scrolls reveal, and about the intentions of the scrolls' custodians in restricting access. The Library's exhibition describes the historical context of the scrolls and the Qumran community from whence they may have originated; it also relates the story of their discovery 2,000 years later. In addition, the exhibition encourages a better understanding of the challenge s and complexities connected with scroll research.
