The OWS Library: What the Protesters are Reading Taking a step back and examining something as vibrant as the Occupy Wall Street protests is very difficult from a sociological or anthropological standpoint. It is like trying to pick up Jell-O with tweezers. The object of your interest is both amorphous and in a constant state of flux. This is made more challenging by the absence of concrete objectives in the movement itself. However, looking at the OWS library can provide some valuable insight into the movement and the motivation behind it. (Occupy Wall Street Library) What is the OWS Library? Through technology and the Internet, that initial effort to organize, protect, and distribute the books donated to the protest has evolved into a 1944 (as of 12:23 pst on Oct. 20, 2011) volume peoples’ library which reflects the movement and the individuals involved in it. The OWS Reader When attempting to characterize the OWS Library, eclectic is an understatement. Obviously this list could go on for another 1937 entries with similar results.

Top 10 Greatest Firearms in History History While I am not a gun owner, I still find it interesting that guns remain today the most common weapon used by military and civilians alike. During their long history, no one has come up with a suitable and as-popular alternative (such as a ray gun). This list looks at ten of the greatest firearms in history – and in the bonus section poses a question. “Hitler’s Buzzsaw,” invented in 1942, is infamous around the world as the weapon used at Omaha Beach to mow Americans down, but it was used in Russia to much more brutal effect. That’s why the Germans had several barrel at hand, and could change to a new one in only 60 seconds. The Glock is the ultimate in modern reliability. The British equivalent of the German Mauser has one trump on it, a 10 round magazine, compared to 8. The rifle is accurate to 1,000 yards with open sights, and served in India (notoriously used against unarmed civilians), the Boer War, both World Wars, and many others. .50 M2HB “Ma Deuce” BMG Jamie Frater

beta) | Learning for everyone, by everyone, about almost anything ANU - Academic Skills Literacy Bridge Healing the Body with Mindfulness of Breathing « Metta Refuge This excerpt from a talk by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh explains how to use mindfulness of breathing to bring loving-kindness to our dear bodies. The physical effect of this can be truly remarkable. As Thây says, “You should really love your body. The First Exercise of Mindful Breathing My dear friends, yesterday I spoke about the first exercise proposed by the Buddha concerning mindful breathing: “Breathing in, I am aware that I am breathing in; breathing out, I am aware that I am breathing out.” We should always start with our physical bodies, because our physical bodies also needs peace, harmony and rest. We should realize a true rest. Animals in the forest, every time they are wounded, know how to rest. Deep relaxation here is one of the methods of resting. The Second Exercise of Mindful Breathing The second exercise: “I breathe in, and I am aware of the length of my in-breath; breathing out, I am aware of the length of my out-breath.” The Third Exercise of Mindful Breathing Like this:
