Ultimate Trippy Movies List - a list by zehn-lotus How the Federal Reserve and Bank of England Are Fueling Massive Global Inequality “Following World War II, the U.S. dollar was adopted as the world's reserve currency against the wishes of the pre-eminent economist John Maynard Keynes," Joel Benjamin tells me, "cementing the economic and political power of the U.S. Federal Reserve." Benjamin works as the local authority manager for the U.K. campaign Move Your Money and is investigating how much public money authorities lost in the financial crisis. Founded in early 2012, Move Your Money — which has parallel groups like this oneoperating in the U.S. — has helped over 2 million people in the U.K. transfer their finances from unethical too-big-to-fail banks to smaller, safer institutions. The Federal Reserve holds a significant responsibility for the 2008 global crash, Benjamin explains. In particular, Alan Greenspan's ultra-low interest rate policies — known as the "Greenspan put" — encouraged the housing and stock market bubbles to dangerously inflate throughout the early 2000s.

Scientists discover double meaning in genetic code Scientists have discovered a second code hiding within DNA. This second code contains information that changes how scientists read the instructions contained in DNA and interpret mutations to make sense of health and disease. High resolutionClick to expand Genome scientist Dr. A research team led by Dr. Read the research paper. The work is part of the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements Project, also known as ENCODE. Since the genetic code was deciphered in the 1960s, scientists have assumed that it was used exclusively to write information about proteins. “For over 40 years we have assumed that DNA changes affecting the genetic code solely impact how proteins are made,” said Stamatoyannopoulos. The genetic code uses a 64-letter alphabet called codons. The discovery of duons has major implications for how scientists and physicians interpret a patient’s genome and will open new doors to the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Stephanie H.

12 Little Known Laws of Karma (That Will Change Your Life) What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it.

Wikileaks Cables Confirm Existence of Extraterrestrial Life We're creating viewer supported news. Become a member! We’re already halfway through 2013 and the world continues to wake up to the fact that we are not alone in the universe. Just this year, we’ve seen a tremendous step forward regarding UFO disclosure. In early May, researchers, activists, political leaders, and high ranking military/agency personnel from around the world testified to the reality of the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon in front of several former United States members of Congress. To watch an interview with former 2008 presidential candidate and ex-congressman Mike Gravel (who participated in the hearings), click here. For more CE articles on the subject of UFOs and extraterrestrials, click HERE. Prior to the recent hearing on UFOs and extraterrestrial life, we’ve had explosive statements made by NASA astronauts and professors.

The Zen Float Tent – First Affordable Isolation Tank For Home Use The benefits of sensory deprivation tanks are no secret: relaxation, deep meditation, soothing chronic muscle pain, increased athletic performance, and an overall sense of well being, but until now these benefits came at a hefty financial cost. Zen Float has created an isolation tank that can be self assembled and is cheaper than its competition. Ideally it is paving the way for higher accessibility and lowered costs in the industry. Much lighter than traditional models, the Zen Float Tent will weigh a little more than a water bed once you add the epsom salt and water. Zen Float is running a Kickstarter to fund their idea, check it out for more details on the product. Uncovered Zen Float Tent In the last 40 years, the positive effects of floating have been scientifically documented and studied though hundreds of research studies. Typically float tanks are in the $10K-30K mark, with the least expensive costing $4,500. Zen Float Tent in the Wild Credits: KarmaJello
