In an increasingly phantasmagorical world, here’s my present fantasy of choice: someone from General Keith Alexander’s outfit, the National Security Agency, tracks down H.G. Wells’s time machine in the attic of an old house in London. Britain’s subservient Government Communications Headquarters, its version of the NSA, is paid off and the contraption is flown to Fort Meade, Maryland, where it’s put back in working order. Alexander then revs it up and heads not into the future like Wells to see how our world ends, but into the past to offer a warning to Americans about what’s to come … // Continue Reading…

I have always been intrigued by the Battle of Bull Run, the opening battle of the US Civil War, known to southerners as the War of Northern Aggression. Extreme hubris characterized both sides, the North before the battle and the South afterwards.
Republican politicians and their ladies in their finery road out to Manassas, the Virginia town through which the stream, Bull Run, flowed, in carriages to watch the Union Army end the “Southern Rebellion” in one fell swoop. Continue Reading…
Requiem and renewal in the shadow of Wall Street, in the light of a Georgia spring – Published on Dissident Voice, by Phil Rockstroh, May 18, 2012.
On May 1, after a day of May Day activities on the streets and avenues of Manhattan, my wife and I and a troop of other OWS celebrants marched into Zuccotti Park to jubilant exhortations of “welcome home” from a throng of fellow occupiers. The next day, my wife and I boarded a southbound Amtrak train to join family gathered at my dying father’s bedside to bid him farewell … //

Si tout était à refaire, je prendrais le temps d’imaginer une zone ou des femmes, des hommes, des enfants, des vieux, des malades, des moches, des embryons, etc. se rencontrent et décident de vivre ensemble. Ma première pensée va à un ami qui dénonce la peur. La peur de soi et de l’autre qui a faussé, pendant des siècles, cette rencontre et à réguler un vivre ensemble immature, dans le conflit permanent et surtout dans la négation de la réalité.

i am a single mom of two wonderful girls, until 2009 i did not know what a budget was, money came in and out of my hand like mist, rarely did it stay. i had credit cards, loans, overdrafts and owed money to so many places i did not know where i was, i grew up this way, it seemed to be normal and i guess to most it is normal. however i realised i did not want to be normal. I bought your book and everything seemed to fall into place, i did the babysteps and suddenly i was on a roll. fast forward 18months later and here i am debt free, apart from the house and that is on the market as i am downsizing.

- We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.
- The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.
- For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

Published on A View on Buddhism /what is the Sangha (community).
To clarify, there can be some confusion in the way the Sanskrit word Sangha is commonly used. In fact, there are three distinct definitions:
- 1. A currently popular definition is to include all Buddhist practitioners.
- 2. The most generally applied term includes only the community of ordained monks and nuns.
- 3. A more strict definition from the scriptures applies to the practitioners who have at least directly realised emptiness.
During his life, the Buddha gave advice to many people on ways to avoid distraction from following the spiritual path. The Buddha never actually taught “a set” of vows for monks or nuns, but these have been extracted afterwards by Buddhist Masters from the teachings of the Buddha.
It is important to realise that monasteries and nunneries have proven to be absolutely essential in preserving the Buddhist teachings and practice. One could say that monasteries are the “power plants” of the Buddhist tradition. Continue Reading…

Last spring I spent some time in the US looking at birds in Washington DC and New York City. That’s not such an improbable idea as it may seem, for both metropolises harbour parks with wonderful wild bird populations, especially in May, when I was there: Washington has Rock Creek Park, a 2,000-acre stretch of natural forest to the north of the city centre, while New York’s Central Park is an 800-acre green glade in the forest of skyscrapers.
Both are teeming with birdlife, above all when the spring migrants arrive, the birds which winter in the Caribbean and Central America and fly up to breed in the northern US and Canada, and of these the most stunning are the warblers, the brilliantly-coloured small songbirds which have been described as “the butterflies of the bird world”. I saw several of them both in Rock Creek and Central Park, and wrote about it here; but what I did not mention were the birds I saw first in both cities, which were sparrows. Continue Reading…
Linked on our blogs with Bruno Manser – Switzerland (1954 – 2000?), with Bruno Manser Fonds BMF, with The Borneo Project, and with Bruno Manser, Land Rights. – Published on Bruno Manser Fonds (in de, fr, en),
Whenever Bruno Manser travelled through the rainforest, he always had his camera with him. During his stays with the Penan on Borneo and the pygmies in the Democratic Republic of Congo between 1986 and 2000, he took more than 10 000 photographs. They relate the story of the traditional life of the nomadic Penan and the pygmies as well as their habitat, the rainforest. They show up the ruthless destruction of the primary forests and document the resistance of the indigenous peoples. By no means least, they constitute a historical record of Bruno Manser’s actions – some of them spectacular – in the struggle against the clearance of the Paradise he had found on Borneo. A selection from this treasure house of photographs has now been made freely accessible to you at the end of a project that took two years’ work.

Women like the FBI’s Coleen Rowley and Sibel Edmonds; Enron’s Sharon Watkins; the Army Corps of Engineer’s Bunnatine Greenhouse; J.P.

The moment we hear the word ‘poverty’, the first thing that comes to mind is starvation, lack of shelter, scarcity of educational and medical services and malnutrition. Considering the fact that our country is surrounded by the ocean and has abundant resources such as fish and possess rivers and lush natural water tanks, it is actually a wonder as to what really makes ‘poverty’ exist? … //

1. Be Thyself.
Good Manners begin with a good sense of self. Unless you are true to yourself,
you can never be true to others. You are unique. Don’t try to shape your
personality to meet circumstances. Be natural, and the world will respect you for
what you are …//
… 10. Act and Look Your Best.
Each day dress as if it were your only chance to shine. A smile should top your
list of accessories. Your home, car and workplace should reflect your best. They
should be tidy, neat and well organized. Table manners are important too.
Observe rules of proper conduct, such as not speaking with food in your mouth
and not eating until the host has been seated. Eat slowly, enjoying each bite.
Savor the moments when good friends.
