Changing the system is not as smart as actually changinghow we liveWithin the present failed system
Here are the stepsInsist on and create car-free communitiesInsist on and create education, commerce and recreation in such communitiesZoned for everything cleanSo we can all walk to themAnd be safe in them
Insist that such communities do as much as possible to be ecologicallyand economically sustainable
I could go on but by now you are saying HOW???This is where the one percent comes inSomeone in this group must start to see that the economic future isBEYOND OILand BEYOND THE SUPREMACY OF THE PRIVATE CAR
We can change the system by framing what we wantWhat we actually wantTo live as one peopleIn a functioning democracy

Smaller Magnetic Materials Push Boundaries of Nanotechnology - "SAN JOSE, Calif. — Researchers at I.B.M. have stored and retrieved digital 1s and 0s from an array of just 12 atoms, pushing the boundaries of the magnetic storage of information to the edge of what is possible."

What makes for a nice voice, a not so nice voice

To whom it may concern what makes for a nice voiceA pleasant indication of  a good dispositionProper volume - consideration for the hearerMeasured but not sing song of showyReally putting the other(s) firstCapacity to move from the formal to the informalA dollop of irony
To whom it may concern what makes for a not so nice voiceSpeed beyond the considerateImperious qualitiesEvidence of considerable cultural emulationKnow-it-all pushinessA sense of impatience
Moral:  All voices are fineIt is how you speak that makes all the difference

No one would diss humankind including himself more than Will And it is precisely this non-idolatrous iconoclasm that creates a basis for saying one is an immortal It takes a few other things and Will had them all in abundance One writes in the poast tense only because the elements have taken away Will's capacity to do much more than smile at his nurses and a flow of visitors to where he is in Nashville From 1960 until last summer Will and I were is almost constant contact He was a hero of our struggle to exact reparations from the white denominations He helped get Little Rock kids into school on a fatal day in the 1950s He befriended the Klan He walked the walk Wheeling about now I think he achieves things gurus only dream about Watch the video above You'll see what I mean

Interesting - time as an aspect of nature

PIRSA - Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive: "Abstract: The history of physics, from Galileo's spatialization of time to Einstein's block universe, and on to Julian Barbour's timeless quantum cosmology, tells a story by which time is demoted from a fundamental aspect of experience to an emergent illusion in a world held to be fundamentally timeless. The question I would like to address is, is this correct, or will the next stage in the development of physics require a rediscovery of time as a primary aspect of nature?"

If nature means reality as we can perceive it time is most certainly related to it because reality as we know it exists within chronological time. Notions of timelessness are fatuous. Notions of eternity refer to states which are attainable by anyone who reflects on reality. The fact that one can hypothesize eternity does not trump chronology. If we understood this we might be better able to factor ontological values…

The breaker of the karmic destiny is JesusAmong othersHe counsels reconciliationAnd peaceful resolution of conflictHe is the author of the statement that a house dividedcannot stand
Israel and the US are putting all of us in danger when they confront IranWith acts that are not merely provocative but karmicIran provokes in returnAt the end lies nuclear confrontationEvery act we take ensures Iran will only work harderTo create a nuclear weaponIf we are concerned for our grandchildrenHeed
The answerAn emergency global disarmament conference now
