I don't know how much the local news gets into the national or international circuit, but events in my hometown have supposedly been drawing a lot of media attention. They have been here, anyway. The Albuquerque Police Department has recently gotten itself into some trouble due to their absurd number of lethal shootings, the most egregious (but not the latest) one being the shooting of James Boyd, an extremely troubled man by all accounts who is probably the only homeless man in the entire history of Albuquerque to get a full-page biography in the city's paper. The video, as was pointed out at a city council meeting, was released by the police because they felt it exonerated the officers involved. It doesn't really. It looks really bad.

RAWIllumination.net Page 13, "we're closer to the pet shop here," to Page 23, "rather close to the Weatherman faction." I'm using quotes as well as page numbers to make things easier for folks who may be using ebooks. -- The Mgt. This is the section in which Saul Goodman and Barney Muldoon begin examining the memos to Joseph Malik, editor of "Confrontation" magazine, giving background to the magazine's mysterious Illuminati project. Most of the references in the memos are quite straightforward, and even now, when interest in the Illuminati seems to be continuing, looking up the references in the memos is a good way to research the alleged secret society.

Paper Mache Recipes This page contains recipes for several kinds of home-made paper mache paste, and home-made gesso recipes for finishing your sculptures. I have been messing around with paper mache for over 50 years and up until a few months ago I always came back to the easiest paper mache recipes, using plain old white flour and water paste with torn strips of newspaper. Now, however, I have abandoned the traditional layered paper process and use my new paper mache clay recipe and/or the even newer silky-smooth air-dry clay recipe for most my sculptures.

Memphis Univ School Library "...an astonishing number of electronic books...from an equally astonishing number of sources ... impressive. Very impressive..." Lindsay Periera, REDIFF.COM (INDIA) Pick of the Weekend "One major area of difficulty in the electronic book area of publishing has been bibliographic control. Knowledge and civilization Aj Sak Teles, Late Classic Mayan Lord Last night, my friend David pointed out an interesting passage in in search of the miraculous, in which Gurdjieff tells Ouspensky a number of interesting things about the nature of knowledge. Gurdjieff, of course, drew a clear distinction between knowledge and understanding, but this particular passage makes it clear that he, like Ibn Arabi, thought knowledge to be an inestimably valuable substance: an essential factor in the culture of man. The very nearly anti-intellectual stance which one frequently encounters in the Gurdjieff work stands in stark contrast to the appreciation for the intellect which is actually needed in order to conduct any serious spiritual work.

How Real Is Breaking Bad - Lessons from an Ex Drug Kingpin Breaking Bad's bloody blend of Bunsen burners and broken bodies has already won it critical acclaim and a committed fan base, but what we wanted to know is if the series, finishing its run in a few short weeks, has also managed to remain true to its depiction of the drug trade. To find out, we decided to talk to a former drug kingpin. Cavario H. describes himself as a third-generation hustler and gangster. Growing up in New York City in the seventies, he had a front-row seat as heroin and crack took over the city's streets. In 1980, he made his own entry into the business, starting a crack distribution network that eventually stretched from Bridgeport, Connecticut, to Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1997, he left the life to become a writer and publisher, founding Don Diva magazine and, later, becoming senior editor of Hip Hop Weekly.

THOUGHT PATTERNS: Bookstores I used to work in a smallish independent bookstore and it was truly one of the best jobs I ever had. To be surrounded by endless glorious volumes, to enter every morning into this multicolored world of words and pictures was truly a pleasure. I loved rearranging shelves (endlessly), lining up the books this way and that.
