Mark Corske’s ENGINES OF DOMINATION

Political power — armed central authority, with states and war — is it part of human nature? Is it necessary for human communities? Or is it a tool that ruling elites use to live at the expense of communities? A tool that does violence to human nature and the world?

Engines of Domination offers a theory of political power as a tool for making tools of human beings — an engine that converts human energy into authority and privilege for the rulers. Invented in the Bronze Age, brilliantly refined for six thousand years, today the engine has caused a human emergency that threatens to destroy our world.

This documentary makes a powerful argument that there is only one way to save the future. Armed central authority must be abolished, giving way to a world of peaceful voluntary communities — in other words, an argument for anarchism.

From the creators of Unveiled and Lifted comes a visual adaptation of Mark Corske’s book Engines of Domination.

This study is part of broader research that these scientists are carrying out on the imbalance of the sexes in China and its potential consequences. This phenomenon started to be noticed during the nineteen eighties and can currently be seen in the birth rate of approximately 120 boys for every 100 girls born in the People’s Republic of China. The objective of this research is precisely to analyze the effects that this disproportion can have on this society and to attempt to prevent the possible negative results it may produce.

The researchers estimate that approximately 30 million males are having difficulty finding a mate in China as a result of the shortage of female adults. A large part of this situation is due to the gender disproportion among the births that take place, although there are other reasons as well, such as the migration of females from the poorest rural zones to other richer areas. “This situation has created a huge market for the sale and trafficking of women”, conclude Quanbao Jiang and Jesús Javier Sánchez Barricarte, who have published this study in the journal Asian Women. “The trafficking of women has been practically non-existent in China since 1949, but we have observed that this crime has been on the rise since 1980″, adds Professor Sánchez Barricarte, of UC3M’s Political Science and Sociology Department.

‘Land bankers': Sydney’s empty property magnates

In its glory days Pyrmont’s Terminus Hotel was a buzzing watering hole filled with rowdy workers downing beer after a hard, hot and dirty day of work.

It was the last stop on the tramline on Harris Street and became a meeting place for men who worked at the sugar mill and power stations from the early 1900s.

Once a Sydney institution, the building is now empty and dilapidated, with faded signs and thick vines climbing on its gutters and walls.

Carbon Dioxide In Greenhouses

The benefits of carbon dioxide supplementation on plant growth and production within the greenhouse environment have been well understood for many years.

Carbon dioxide (CO2)is an essential component of photosynthesis (also called carbon assimilation). Photosynthesis is a chemical process that uses light energy to convert CO2 and water into sugars in green plants. These sugars are then used for growth within the plant, through respiration. The difference between the rate of photosynthesis and the rate of respiration is the basis for dry-matter accumulation (growth) in the plant. In greenhouse production the aim of all growers is to increase dry-matter content and economically optimize crop yield. CO2 increases productivity through improved plant growth and vigour. Some ways in which productivity is increased by CO2 include earlier flowering, higher fruit yields, reduced bud abortion in roses, improved stem strength and flower size. Growers should regard CO2 as a nutrient.

Headlines: Retirement dreams in tatters for 15 million families

Source: Mail Online

Around 15million middle-class families face an acute financial squeeze when they retire, with the worst-hit reduced to poverty, according to a report.

Their income will plunge by up to 60 per cent when they stop work – if they ever do.

Experts warn that unless they start to save more money, many will have to choose between retiring in poverty or working into their 70s or even 80s.

The report raises fears about those currently enjoying a household income before tax of between £22,000 and £56,000, who have been dubbed the ‘squeezed middle’.

It says that while they will not be living off a ‘cat food diet’ in their old age, they will be ‘disappointed, discontented and disgruntled’ by the amount on which they have to live.

The report, from the think-tank Chatham House, warns: ‘Many middle-class households look set to experience a considerable drop in their retirement income.

‘It will force them to considerably adjust their lifestyles and even to rely on social benefits.’

It adds that, despite working throughout their lives, ‘some may even slip into poverty’. The report warns of a chronic ‘expectations mismatch’ between the life they are used to, and the one they will actually be able to afford.

It found that most people ‘expect to maintain a level close to their pre-retirement lifestyle during retirement’, taking foreign holidays, eating out and indulging hobbies.

In reality their chronic lack of savings, the poor investment returns on pensions and dire annuity rates mean luxuries will have to be abandoned. One problem is that private sector firms have closed gold-plated pension schemes based on a final salary and replaced them with cheaper, less generous alternatives.

The financial impact of the change is enormous. The average pension paid by a final salary, or ‘defined benefit’, scheme is about £7,500 a year.

In comparison, the type of pension that private sector workers are being forced into – known as a ‘defined contribution’ scheme – currently pays an average of around £1,300 a year.

Faster than light neutrinos – Q&A

Tentative new evidence suggests Einstein’s rule that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light may be wrong. What are the implications for our understanding of the world?

What has been discovered?

A fundamental subatomic particle, the neutrino, seems to be capable of travelling faster than the speed of light (that is, the speed of a photon through a vacuum).

Brutal bank crackdown but crooks go free

It had to be a case of mistaken identity.

Protesters had been swarming Wall Street and Lower Manhattan for a week. There were at least six arrests the first day Occupy Wall Street camped out and chanted near the New York Stock Exchange. There were dozens more by the weekend.

By Saturday, the hundreds of protesters appeared to have lit a fuse with New York City police. There were rough arrests that bordered on brutality. Pepper spray brought tears and pain. Watch YouTube video of female protesters penned and pepper sprayed .

And to a nation’s shock, not one of the police targets was a banker.

So much for law and order.

If you want to know how a nation supposedly by and for the people has become uprooted, one only needs to see how common young people, who are suffering so badly in this recession, were humiliated further by trying to exercise their given right to peacefully protest.

If this is justice, I’d rather break the law.

The bankers who brought us this mess not only walk free, they drive free in Bentleys paid for by money looted through toxic mortgages, trading debacles and derivative madness. Regulators, prosecutors and an administration patsy to big finance do nothing except hand out $1.3 trillion in bailout cash and guarantees.

Vaccinations: Safe and Effective: Fact or Fiction?

Who Should Bear the Burden of Proof?

Vaccine proponents repeatedly say “the benefits outweigh the risks” But on what basis can this claim be substantiated if: a) there are no long term controlled studies comparing vaccinated versus non-vaccinated children b) vaccine trials are short-term and do not use an inert saline placebo c) vaccine trials are not designed to detect carcinogenic, mutagenic, neurological or autoimmune potential and d) diseases/reactions are redefined to rule out a vaccination link thereby further skewing the statistics.

Breaking: Fluoride Linked to #1 Cause of Death in New Research

Originally posted 2012-01-17 19:41:41. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Source: Natural Society

Groundbreaking new research has linked sodium fluoride to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers found that fluoride consumption directly stimulates the hardening of your arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis that is highly correlated with the #1 killer. Sodium fluoride is currently added to the water supply of many cities worldwide, despite extreme opposition from health professionals and previous studies linking it to decreased IQ and infertility.

In their research, scientists examined the relationship between fluoride intake and the hardening (calcification) of the arteries. Studying more than 60 patients, the researchers found a significant correlation between fluoride consumption and the calcification of your arteries. Published in the January edition of the journal Nuclear Medicine Communications, the research highlights the fact that mass fluoride exposure may be to blame for the cardiovascular disease epidemic that takes more lives each year than cancer. In 2008, cardiovascular killed 17 million people.

‘I am not mad, Morgellons IS real': Thousands claim to suffer from the agonising skin condition but doctors say it is psychological

It sounds like something from a horror film: an illness that causes an itchy, crawling sensation all over the body, tiny coloured fibres that ooze out of the skin, and painful sores.

For Victoria Vigors, this began last summer when a strange oily substance ‘leaked’ out of her scalp. After a few weeks, her whole body was affected and, to her alarm, tiny white granules started to ‘come out’ of her pores.

‘I was terrified,’ says Victoria, who lives near Dartford, Kent, with husband Dan, 28, an electrician, and their 15-month-old son Riley. ‘I felt my body had been invaded and I had no idea how to stop it.’

Climate Change Bureaucrats Jetsetting The World In Luxury At Our Expense

In just two weeks Aussie families will be slugged with a carbon tax to pay for a ‘green utopia’.

But where is this money really going? And are our carbon tax bureaucrats practicing what they preach?

We did a little digging, and discovered what many long suspected: While Aussie families are struggling, bureaucrats are living the high life and travelling to exotic destinations at our expense.

Documents released to the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance under Freedom of Information laws revealed that bureaucrats in the Department of Climate change flew 6,528,616km last financial year, costing us a staggering $3,274,286.40!

And while these very people are lecturing us to act like we’re back in the dark ages the carbon emissions of these flights equal over 1000 tonnes!

“You are what you eat” is one of the most profound and instructive sayings ever to be passed down to us through the ages, and thanks to an explosion of exciting new research into the way that food directly affects your genes, it can no longer be written off as merely a metaphorical expression. 

In fact, food provides far more than just the material “building blocks” and “fuel” for the ‘body-machine; it is also a source of genetic information, which is capable of informing the cells and processes within your body, for better or for worse.

What is quite amazing is the difference in biological response when comparing the right and wrong types of foods.

In fact, new research has revealed that eating the wrong plants can actually directly alter your genetic expression, which can lead to a myriad of diseases.

Tapped – Documentary

Originally posted 2011-06-30 19:28:59. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil. The documentary is well structured and presents an overwhelming amount of evidence which will change the way anyone thinks about bottled and municipal water.

Both the “manufacture” of the water itself, and also where the bottles come from, where they go after use and how they influence our lives while they’re with us. The willful absence of major companies such as Coke, Pepsi and Nestle is extremely telling in light of all the material presented.

One can only hope that the small voice of this film will be heard over the huge booming commercial machine that these and other companies represent in the popular media. If you haven’t seen this movie, simply watch it. It’s that good and the information is something everyone should know.

Project seeks 1 million veterans to give blood, DNA for disease research

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is looking for a few good men and women to volunteer for a battle it’s waging at home — against disease.

Actually, more than a few are needed. Officials overseeing health care for the nation’s veterans are undertaking what may be the largest effort of its kind in the nation, to collect medical records and blood samples from a million former service members for a bank of genetic information.

The idea is to give researchers enough DNA and other data to link specific genes to mental and physical maladies, from post-traumatic stress disorder to heart disease, and eventually develop new preventive measures or treatments.
