Cooke saw considerable service on the frontier during the Indian wars, the Mexican War and the Civil War Also at Cooke was an assortment of anti-aircraft artil- lery, combat engineer, ordnance and hospital units. More than outfits passed through Camp Cooke.
As the war progressed, German and Italian prisoners of war were quartered at Cooke. Having surrendered to the Allies in , many of the Italians volunteered to work for the U. Army, which organized them into Italian Service Units. The Germans and the Italians were kept separate in accordance with the Geneva Conventions and worked on the post alongside Americans at various jobs including mechanical and civil engineering services, clerical positions, food service and the main laundry.
To alleviate the severe labor shortage in the commercial market created by wartime exigencies, the Germans also worked in the local communities at agricultural jobs. A maximum security Branch Disciplinary Barracks was constructed on post property in Confined to the facility were Army and Navy military prisoners. When Camp Cooke closed in June , personnel at the Disci- plinary Barracks received the additional duty as caretakers for the entire installation.

I want you to be able to say that day that I did try in my life to clothe those who were naked. I want you to say on that day that I did try in my life to visit those who were in prison. And I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity. Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major. Say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter.
I won't have any money to leave behind. I won't have the fine and luxurious things of life to leave behind. But I just want to leave a committed life behind. Beginning in , cities such as St. Louis, Missouri , and states established annual holidays to honor King.
Following President George H. Bush 's proclamation, the holiday is observed on the third Monday of January each year, near the time of King's birthday. Day was officially observed in all fifty U. Utah previously celebrated the holiday at the same time but under the name Human Rights Day.
King is remembered as a martyr by the Episcopal Church in the United States of America with an annual feast day on the anniversary of his death, April 4. Inspired by King's vision, it undertakes a range of activities across the UK as it seeks to "build cultures of peace.
In , Newcastle University unveiled a bronze statue of King to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his honorary doctorate ceremony. As a Christian minister, King's main influence was Jesus Christ and the Christian gospels, which he would almost always quote in his religious meetings, speeches at church, and in public discourses. King's faith was strongly based in Jesus' commandment of loving your neighbor as yourself , loving God above all, and loving your enemies, praying for them and blessing them.
His nonviolent thought was also based in the injunction to turn the other cheek in the Sermon on the Mount , and Jesus' teaching of putting the sword back into its place Matthew In another sermon, he stated:.
Before I was a civil rights leader, I was a preacher of the Gospel. This was my first calling and it still remains my greatest commitment. You know, actually all that I do in civil rights I do because I consider it a part of my ministry. I have no other ambitions in life but to achieve excellence in the Christian ministry.
I don't plan to run for any political office. I don't plan to do anything but remain a preacher. And what I'm doing in this struggle, along with many others, grows out of my feeling that the preacher must be concerned about the whole man.
In his speech " I've Been to the Mountaintop ", he stated that he just wanted to do God's will. Veteran African-American civil rights activist Bayard Rustin was King's first regular advisor on nonviolence. Rustin had applied nonviolence with the Journey of Reconciliation campaign in the s,  and Wofford had been promoting Gandhism to Southern blacks since the early s. King had initially known little about Gandhi and rarely used the term "nonviolence" during his early years of activism in the early s.
King initially believed in and practiced self-defense, even obtaining guns in his household as a means of defense against possible attackers. The pacifists guided King by showing him the alternative of nonviolent resistance, arguing that this would be a better means to accomplish his goals of civil rights than self-defense.
King then vowed to no longer personally use arms. In the aftermath of the boycott, King wrote Stride Toward Freedom , which included the chapter Pilgrimage to Nonviolence. King outlined his understanding of nonviolence, which seeks to win an opponent to friendship, rather than to humiliate or defeat him.
The chapter draws from an address by Wofford, with Rustin and Stanley Levison also providing guidance and ghostwriting. King was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi and his success with nonviolent activism, and as a theology student, King described Gandhi as being one of the "individuals who greatly reveal the working of the Spirit of God".
In a radio address made during his final evening in India, King reflected, "Since being in India, I am more convinced than ever before that the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for justice and human dignity.
King's admiration of Gandhi's nonviolence did not diminish in later years. He went so far as to hold up his example when receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in , hailing the "successful precedent" of using nonviolence "in a magnificent way by Mohandas K.
Gandhi to challenge the might of the British Empire He struggled only with the weapons of truth, soul force, non-injury and courage. Another influence for King's nonviolent method was Henry David Thoreau 's essay On Civil Disobedience and its theme of refusing to cooperate with an evil system. Even after renouncing his personal use of guns, King had a complex relationship with the phenomenon of self-defense in the movement. He publicly discouraged it as a widespread practice, but acknowledged that it was sometimes necessary.
They both have weaknesses And I'm not inextricably bound to either party. Actually, the Negro has been betrayed by both the Republican and the Democratic party.
The Democrats have betrayed him by capitulating to the whims and caprices of the Southern Dixiecrats. The Republicans have betrayed him by capitulating to the blatant hypocrisy of reactionary right wing northern Republicans. And this coalition of southern Dixiecrats and right wing reactionary northern Republicans defeats every bill and every move towards liberal legislation in the area of civil rights.
Although King never publicly supported a political party or candidate for president, in a letter to a civil rights supporter in October he said that he was undecided as to whether he would vote for Adlai Stevenson or Dwight Eisenhower , but that "In the past I always voted the Democratic ticket. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one. In , King urged his supporters "and all people of goodwill" to vote against Republican Senator Barry Goldwater for president, saying that his election "would be a tragedy, and certainly suicidal almost, for the nation and the world.
King supported the ideals of democratic socialism, although he was reluctant to speak directly of this support due to the anti-communist sentiment being projected throughout the United States at the time, and the association of socialism with communism. King believed that capitalism could not adequately provide the basic necessities of many American people, particularly the African-American community.
King stated that black Americans, as well as other disadvantaged Americans, should be compensated for historical wrongs. In an interview conducted for Playboy in , he said that granting black Americans only equality could not realistically close the economic gap between them and whites.
He posited that "the money spent would be more than amply justified by the benefits that would accrue to the nation through a spectacular decline in school dropouts, family breakups, crime rates, illegitimacy, swollen relief rolls, rioting and other social evils. He stated, "It should benefit the disadvantaged of all races.
Recently, the press has been filled with reports of sightings of flying saucers. While we need not give credence to these stories, they allow our imagination to speculate on how visitors from outer space would judge us. I am afraid they would be stupefied at our conduct. They would observe that for death planning we spend billions to create engines and strategies for war.
They would also observe that we spend millions to prevent death by disease and other causes. Finally they would observe that we spend paltry sums for population planning , even though its spontaneous growth is an urgent threat to life on our planet. Our visitors from outer space could be forgiven if they reported home that our planet is inhabited by a race of insane men whose future is bleak and uncertain. There is no human circumstance more tragic than the persisting existence of a harmful condition for which a remedy is readily available.
Family planning , to relate population to world resources , is possible, practical and necessary. Unlike plagues of the dark ages or contemporary diseases we do not yet understand, the modern plague of overpopulation is soluble by means we have discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not sufficient knowledge of the solution but universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem and education of the billions who are its victims Edgar Hoover personally ordered surveillance of King, with the intent to undermine his power as a civil rights leader.
Kennedy to proceed with wiretapping of King's phone lines. The Bureau placed wiretaps on the home and office phone lines of Levison and King, and bugged King's rooms in hotels as he traveled across the country. For years, Hoover had been suspicious about potential influence of communists in social movements such as labor unions and civil rights. The FBI feared Levison was working as an "agent of influence" over King, in spite of its own reports in that Levison had left the Party and was no longer associated in business dealings with them.
For his part, King adamantly denied having any connections to communism. In a Playboy interview, he stated that "there are as many Communists in this freedom movement as there are Eskimos in Florida. The attempt to prove that King was a communist was related to the feeling of many segregationists that blacks in the South were happy with their lot but had been stirred up by "communists" and "outside agitators. King said that "the Negro revolution is a genuine revolution, born from the same womb that produces all massive social upheavals—the womb of intolerable conditions and unendurable situations.
CIA files declassified in revealed that the agency was investigating possible links between King and Communism after a Washington Post article dated November 4, claimed he was invited to the Soviet Union and that Ralph Abernathy, spokesman for subject, refused to comment on the source of the invitation. Having concluded that King was dangerous due to communist infiltration, the FBI attempted to discredit King through revelations regarding his private life.
FBI surveillance of King, some of it since made public, attempted to demonstrate that he also engaged in numerous extramarital affairs. In his autobiography And the Walls Came Tumbling Down , Ralph Abernathy stated that King had a "weakness for women", although they "all understood and believed in the biblical prohibition against sex outside of marriage. It was just that he had a particularly difficult time with that temptation. Abernathy criticized the media for sensationalizing the statements he wrote about King's affairs,  such as the allegation that he admitted in his book that King had a sexual affair the night before he was assassinated.
In his book Bearing the Cross , David Garrow wrote about a number of extramarital affairs, including one woman King saw almost daily. According to Garrow, "that relationship The FBI distributed reports regarding such affairs to the executive branch, friendly reporters, potential coalition partners and funding sources of the SCLC, and King's family. The American public, the church organizations that have been helping—Protestants, Catholics and Jews will know you for what you are—an evil beast.
So will others who have backed you. King, there is only one thing left for you to do. You know what it is. You have just 34 days in which to do this exact number has been selected for a specific reason, it has definite practical significant [ sic ]. There is but one way out for you. You better take it before your filthy fraudulent self is bared to the nation. The letter was accompanied by a tape recording—excerpted from FBI wiretaps—of several of King's extramarital liaisons.
King to resign from the SCLC. A fire station was located across from the Lorraine Motel, next to the boarding house in which James Earl Ray was staying. Police officers were stationed in the fire station to keep King under surveillance. Marrell McCollough, an undercover police officer, was the first person to administer first aid to King. King was awarded at least fifty honorary degrees from colleges and universities.
You have it all or you are not free. There are three urgent and indeed great problems that we face not only in the United States of America but all over the world today. That is the problem of racism, the problem of poverty and the problem of war. He gazed upon the great wall of segregation and saw that the power of love could bring it down.
From the pain and exhaustion of his fight to fulfill the promises of our founding fathers for our humblest citizens, he wrung his eloquent statement of his dream for America.
He made our nation stronger because he made it better. His dream sustains us yet. King and his wife were also awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in Among the planned designs are images from King's " I Have a Dream " speech and the concert by opera singer Marian Anderson.

The proper metaphor for today's Wall Street is not a casino but rather a rigged numbers game. Oil Prices and Our Crony Congress. Harpignies kick the tires on the value of utopian thought and ambition as well as the dangers. KMO and JP agree that the idea of Earth as just the cradle of humanity, a place from which we are meant to leave to establish an interstellar civilization, is a dangerous conceit. This is pretty good, though sci-fi fans will appreciate it more.
Now only five animals remain in this subspecies, all in captivity. The lone male lives in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. So it would seem the northern white rhino is doomed to extinction. But there may still be a way to bring back this 2-ton creature.

The banksters will not stop, ever, until they have it all—or until they are stopped. Health Effects of Cinnamon — Cinnamon has been used as medicine since biblical times. Today it is even being studied for possible protection against viruses and diabetes. Dee McCaffrey explores whether small amounts of cinnamon every day can help you be healthier. This report conflates results of studies using high-dose concentrates of cinnamon's essential oils to long-term use of small amounts of cinnamon powder.
That's an inappropriate extrapolation. That said, the evidence is strong that cinnamon is a good thing when included in the diet—assuming you tolerate it. My other complaint here is that they do not discuss the different varieties of cinnamon—I know there are at least two—and whether the health effects vary.
The move follows years of efforts by environmentalists, who cite dangers like earthquakes and potential contamination of New York's renowned pristine water supply. This report is rather superficial but adequately conveys the excellent news that a major state is going to ban this odious practice.
Chris Martenson on Wall Street Games and Fracking Bombs — Chris Martenson guides us through the swamps of financial lingo so we might all develop a clearer notion of the jargon used in financial sectors of the chatter-sphere.
Topics include credit default swaps, derivatives, margin calls, shorting and going long. A lot of esoteric financial trading techniques are discussed here, but it's important evidence of just how insane the Wall Street games are. If we do not rid ourselves this parasitic "over-layer," we will never solve any of the other problems that plague us. Functional Diagnostic Nutrition for Solving Health Mysteries — Reed Davis talks about his "functional diagnostic nutrition" approach to solving health mysteries.
When allopathic doctors fail, this Columbo of health problems steps in and doggedly pursues the solution. Functional medicine is the only sane approach to chronic health issues. Classic Comedy Bits — Clip 1 has several classic comedy bits: With the exception of the lame "Immigrants" bit from National Lampoon Radio Hour, clip 1 is must-listening.
And I had forgotten just how brilliant "Who's On First" is. Democrat AGs have previously teamed with environmental groups to move on issues that were stalled at the national level; now Republican AGs are allying with fossil fuel companies to challenge federal environmental regulations in court. Political scientist Paul Nolette discusses this development. To put this in context, the Republicans are excelling at selling out on environmental issues and the Democrats are excelling at selling out on Wall Street issues.
They are Scylla and Charybdis and we are a Greek tragedy. MacArthur, president and publisher of Harper's Magazine, about the problems with the Obama-backed Trans-Pacific Partnership being negotiated in secret. They also conclude that the Wall Street sellout means working people can no longer count on the Democrats to look out for their interests. Just as Republicans are the tool of the oil-industrial-polluter-warfare complex, Democrats are the tool of the Wall Street bankster-parasites.
Not that either party really objects to the other's agenda on those terms. Sure—it's fight, fight, fight when it comes to social issues, but when it comes to the bankster-dominated corporatocracy, there is one rule that both parties adhere to without exception: Don't fuck with the money. Pesticides—Beware the Drifter — Attorney Amanda Heyman's job is providing legal counsel for independent farmers and food businesses. Here she discusses the legal aspects of pesticide drift, GMOs, organics, and "natural" labeling.
Pesticide drift may sound like a boring technical topic, of limited interest to anyone but farmers. But it affects a wide variety of issues, from air quality for residences around non-organic farms to the integrity of organic foods.
Here he discusses his fictional post-apocalypse books, which include the Black Dawn series, which extrapolates from our real-life era when corporations are literally sucking the earth dry of its high quality resources; and Meat , where a combination of powerful corporations and organized religion completely control the food supply, with living standards for animal welfare and human rights falling by the wayside.
Real-life climate scientist Michael Mann gives his take on our climate prospects. Given humans' demonstrated inability to elevate their actions above their parochial interests, I think the "we're screwed" conclusion of the fictional EPA official will prove more likely than the hopium-based "we can still take meaningful action" assertion expressed by Michael Mann.
That said, Alex Smith does a nice job at the end mediating the two extremes and adding more scientific—and psychological—context. Topics include the nature of the torture worse than has been admitted to by the CIA ; the lack of repercussions for those who directed the torture strategy; the US torture activities in light of international treaties; the media response to the report; the general lack of accountability of the CIA to the normal power structures of government.
The report on CIA toture is a classic rendition of the "mistakes were made" gambit—criticize past behavior without exacting punishment. What's amazing is the ferocious denunciation of even a no-impact report like this by the pro-torture lunatics and their allies in the mainstream media.
Two doctors have written a book called The New Puberty that looks at the percentage of girls who are going through early puberty, the environmental, biological and socioeconomic factors that influence when puberty begins, and whether early puberty is linked with an increased risk of breast cancer. Authors Julianna Deardorff and Louise Greenspan explain. This starts off with an interesting discussion of the science of possible factors in why girls are starting puberty sooner than they used to, but about half-way in it devolves into a generic discussion of parenting topics.

A Short History of Personal Computers and the Internet — As told by Walter Isaacson, the story of how the digital age came to be involves a cast of more than 40 people, ranging from a 19th century English countess to a WWII codebreaker to California hippies.

Sloppy Fracking Practices Result In Large Methane Leaks — Faulty equipment and maintenance procedures in natural gas operations can inadvertently release large quantities of methane, new research reveals.
Scientists say most of the problem can be pinned on a relatively small number of "clunker" wells. The report implies that just fixing the low-hanging fruit will eliminate the majority of the methane leaks. That sounds like a "see, things aren't so bad" result, just as one might expect from an industry-funded study.
But even if the study's conclusion is correct, and even if the worst of the leaks are fixed, methane is such a potent greenhouse gas that the remainder would still be an issue. This is why it's the conspiracy refusniks who are the nut-jobs. If the bankster-CIA cabal will kill a president, what won't they do? But if you think of Bhopal as a tragedy from the '80s, you're missing the point: It was a crime and it's far from over.
Amitabh Pal of the Progressive talks about the ongoing disaster of Bhopal and the potential progress finally being made to clean up the area and properly compensate victims. It's important to remember that Bhopal was not an unavoidable accident, it was a manifestation of corporate pennypinching on maintenance and upgrades at an industrial facility that handled deadly reagents.
It's extremely rare that we put corporate executives or board members on trial for such failures, but that should change. Their personal fortunes are made by reaping the revenue from such operations in good times; their liberty and wealth should be at risk when it goes wrong due to their mismanagement.
The US Role in Illegally Logging Peru's Forests — More than half of Peru is still covered by tropical rainforest—an area the size of Texas—which plays a crucial ecosystem role and is a significant carbon sink. A new report documents how more than 20 US companies have imported millions of dollars in illegal wood from the Peruvian Amazon since You can see why these logs are coveted—they're huge compared to the re-growth trees available for lumbering in the US.
Nonetheless, this is just another example of how most people in the West are fine with not asking too many questions about where wonderful but illegally sourced products come from. In this presentation, James Corbett lifts the lid on Gladio B, discussing the evidence, the key players, and the secret battle for the Eurasian heartland. A rather eye-glazing level of detail is necessary to understanding Gladio B, but Corbett does his best to wade through it without getting us lost in the skunkworks.
The Seed Underground—A Growing Revolution to Save Food — Janisse Ray discusses the threat to seed sovereignty posed by multinationals like Monsanto, which are endeavoring to lock up the food-related profit stream from field to fork by owning the means of production. She explains how activism and seed saving both play a role in the fight. A simple solution would be to pass a constitutional amendment banning patents on life forms.
Um, did I say simple? Now Don Blankenship, the CEO of mining company Massey Energy, has been indicted on federal charges, which accuse him of directing company policies that were contrary to mining regulations and laws and that contributed to the disaster.
Law professor Patrick McGinley talks about the case. Couldn't have happened to a more bastardy bastard. So says Jamie Brown Hansen, an international researcher who studies bio-mimicry to understand how economic sustainability can be derived and adapted from ancient systems of nature.
Ah, the charming, naive brilliance of the young. The people currently running the financial system don't want it to be stable, efficient, and sustainable.
They have fought hard to devise a system of "managed instability" that allows them to profit from both the ups and downs in the seemingly chaotic cycles, which are in fact just meta-manipulations.
Don't expect any change in their goals or the system until we take it from them. This point is thankfully addressed here in the excellent epilog by Gwen Halsted of the Public Banking Institute. Better Listen to Your Mother. Alex Campbell talks about this and other cases of con artists using the media to help create the illusion of credentials. Yes, the media should better investigate those they give a platform to. But realize that the mainstream media is not there to inform people; they are there to push their buttons.
In their world, minor lapses in credibility are unimportant compared to keeping viewers off-balance and engaged. It's more important than ever to cut through the propaganda to learn what we can about the most feverish geopolitical tensions in recent memory. Orlov offers a clear-eyed assessment of the game in the Ukraine and the general nonsense the US calls foreign policy.
Cop Inconsistencies and the Oswald Frame — This clip offers numerous tidbits from a recent JFK Assassination symposium, all indicating more troubling inconsistencies in the behavior of police and other officials at and around the scene of the JFK murder.
Why rust in barrel of the supposed murder weapon means it was never fired; other ballistics inconsistencies; why the official timeline of the cops hot on the trail of fugitive Oswald does not compute; the oddity of so much background information on Oswald being provided in press releases almost immediately after his arrest. The more evidence like this that we see, the more amazing it is that the conspiracy could have been covered up at the time.
Joe Alton and his wife Amy Alton—better known as Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy—talk about which techniques we need to know and which supplies we need to keep in stock to stay healthy when help is not on the way. Topics include how to get started in putting together a medical kit; whether you should concentrate on natural medicine, traditional medicine, or both; and why you can't trust what the government says when a pandemic hits. Supplies and basic training are a great idea As usual, Gause offers several excellent insights on how things really work.
He is also "sort of correct" on his assertion that if you live debt-free you are not understanding how to use the system to best advantage in the way the elites do. But if you are not an elite who gets inside info, has deep pockets, and employs a team of financial tricksters to help you navigate the currents, then proceed with caution into the Sea of Debt!
When you're perusing the shelves, be they virtual or actual, what matters to you? Beyond price, quality, and value, what about knowing how the company that made the product treats its workers, the extent to which production depletes natural resources, and what impact this product has on the environment?
Many of us care about these things in the abstract, but it's difficult to put our tenets into practice. If only there were an app. Dara O'Rourke explains the Good Guide, a website and smart phone app that consumers can use to make informed "green" decisions on what they're buying. Few of us can resist the draw of consumerism, so you might as well ka-ching your purchases in the right direction. Michael Klare on Cheap Oil and Geopolitics — With the price of a barrel of crude oil having fallen almost 40 percent compared to its peak in June, filling your gas tank has gotten cheaper.
Analyst Michael Klare talks about the impact lower oil prices are having. Topics include the reasons for falling oil prices; the effect on oil producers like Iran, Venezuela, and Russia; the psychology of car buying; boosts to American, Japanese and European economies; Keystone XL; wither peak oil? Yes, we peak oilers were wrong. While we knew the people in charge would be willing to turn the planet into an industrial wasteland to keep the petro-circus going, we didn't realize a majority of the populace would be OK with that.
Genetically Modified Chestnuts — A century ago, the American Chestnut was a tremendously important species in the forests of Eastern North America, representing more than a quarter of all forest trees in a swath from Georgia to Ontario. But a fungus introduced on imported Asian chestnut trees turned out to be catastrophic for the American Chestnut, killing billions of trees and essentially wiping out the species by the s.
Breeding a blight-resistant tree has proved laborious and difficult, so now a research team has developed a genetically modified American Chestnut that uses a gene from wheat to resist the effects of the fungus.
Lead researcher William Powell explains. As GMO applications go, this would seem to be one of the less objectionable ones. But beware anytime a GMO proponent says "this is for the people and for the environment. The Anthropocene and Techno-Utopia — Environmental journalist Christian Schwagerl discusses some of the concepts of assigning human impact as the dominant force of the current era, now being called "The Anthropocene" by many in scientific circles.
Can the planet survive the wave of human modification washing over it? I once believed in the idea that humanity must be awakened to the dangers of environmental destruction. That's still a worthy goal, but it is a subset of the need to awaken to humanity to the disease of financial parasitism, that we simultaneously are exploited by and are willingly participants in.
In the end, the real question is whether the masses are psychologically capable of dealing with either of these problems even if they grasp them. Participants agree to pay a premium for the tomatoes in order to support a "penny per pound" bonus that is then paid to the tomato pickers. Soon, the Fair Food label will appear on Florida tomatoes at participating stores. Gerardo Reyes-Chavez, a farm worker and organizer with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, discusses the issue.
Like all industrial products, modern food corporations do their best to put their "externalities" on the shoulders of others. Farm workers have always gotten more than their share of the unfairness. Films of the New World Order 21 — Tora! FDR's insistence that the Pacific Fleet be stationed at Pearl Harbor, despite strong objections from the Navy; the interesting fact that mostly US ships of lesser military value were at Pearl Harbor at the time of the attack; what was known before the attack and who presented it to whom; the smear campaign against the admiral in charge of Pearl Harbor and the attempts to suppress public analysis of what happened there; how the movie paints Pearl Harbor as a tragic accident rather than a devious deception, and the historical revisionist behind that tack.
Generally speaking, don't worry about trying to winnow out which things our leaders lie to us about. Just assume they lie about everything, and then we can focus our energies on disrupting the continuum of elite psychopaths rather than arguing about their press releases. Money—Avarice, Politics and Madness — Douglass Everett talks about recent news item that, collectively, show the broken mindset of the elites and the minions that serve them.
I usually avoid "news" stories, but Everett does a nice job of stringing these together to show a pattern. Lakes Turning to Jelly — The problem of acid rain is often touted as one of the few success stories in controlling pollution, as the industrial emissions that cause it have been cut substantially. But the environmental damage and disruption caused by acid rain still echo in the wilderness.
One example discovered is the "jellification" of temperate lakes, where acid rain has reduced calcium content, an essential element for most lake organisms. This has caused some crustaceans at the base of the aquatic food chain—the ones that make their exoskeletons from calcium—to be at a disadvantage, and they're now being displaced by species that have a jelly-like coating.
These jelly organisms are inedible to many predators and thus are disruptive to the lakes' ecological balance. And what do geoengineering proponents most often propose to push back global warming? Why, of course, to blast sulfate particles—the most toublesome of the old acid rain pollutants—into the atmosphere. Pandora's New Deal—Different Pay, Different Play — The Internet radio service Pandora made its name by creating personalized stations by having users "like" and "dislike" songs and by tweaking playlists based on the relationships between artists and songsrelationships that have been established through its massive Music Genome Project.
But a deal between Pandora and a group of record labels has raised concerns that the company will now start favoring certain songs over others because it can pay a smaller royalty to the musicians behind the favored songs. I personally have never found Pandora very helpful due its simplistic binary rating system. A Bowl of Soul. Nothing flashy here, but mostly solid. The Inflation Genie Is Out of the Bottle — Andrew Gause explains why the inverted yield curve means that a lot of companies and players are in financial trouble and are trying to borrow furiously to fend off disaster.
Meanwhile, the top players predators are taking advantage of the weaknesses and are on a buying spree, purchasing all depressed assets and commodities. Gause reviews how the setup for the current harvest started in , explaining who got the Fed-created money, what was done with it then, and what's being done with it now. Other topics this time include Remember that when the inflation comes, it's the final phase of the crime.
Wall Street banks speculated wildly, reaping vast winnings and getting bailed out on vast losses. Then the Fed made all major financial institutions well again by creating money and parking it in the banks.
The final phase is for the printed money to be released, which will unleash inflation, which has the effect of making all us peons pay to fix the imbalance caused by all the money printing, which helped fund the original crime. Healing Green Despair — Todd Wilkinson, author of a new biography of eco-billionaire Ted Turner, talks about Turner's attention to green issues. Is this proof that the wealthy can lead on environmental challenges? Species that have been able to adapt have prospered; most have not.
Working on environmental issues without solving the problem of the central banking-corporate-warfare complex will only get us so far. We've back-slid since the major green successes of the s. Is it coincidental that the central banking-corporate-warfare complex has grown much more powerful in that same timespan?
There's a battle in your brain. The more you read on screens, the more your brain adapts to the "non-linear" kind of reading we do on computers and phones.
Your eyes dart around, you stop half way through a paragraph to check a link or a read a text message. Then, when you go back to good old fashioned paper, it can be harder to concentrate—unless you can develop your 'bi-literate' brain. The screen itself is only part of the problem, and the terse format of web content is only part of the problem. The Psychopath Inside — When UC Irvine neuroscientist James Fallon was studying the brain scans of known psychopaths alongside the brain scan of a "normal" control—himself—he discovered something fascinating and troubling: This forced Fallon to reevaluate what psychopathy means, both in clinical terms and in practical terms.
He talks about his odyssey and the conclusions it led him to. This is insightful and entertaining. I do disagree, though, with one of Fallon's conclusions: He says we need "good psychopaths" as enforcers against the "bad psychopaths.
One liberal columnist told readers not to listen to the "yes but" naysayers. But critics of the deal are worth listening to; for one, Daphne Wysham of the Center for Sustainable Economy, who says the goals are timid, the timing is suspect, and the enforcement mechanism is weak. Understand that the hoopla from the corporate media is designed to put the public at ease because "now something is being done. But that's not the same as true progress on climate change, so in the end, this is a lot of noise about what will largely turn out to be a stalling tactic.
Sulu on Star Trek and used it as a platform from which to speak about important social issues, including marriage equality and redressment for Japanese-American internment during WWII, which he personally experienced.
Here he talks about his personal odyssey, the issues, and the fun he's having in his new late-life career as a social-media darling.
Hawken talks about the challenge of taking society to the next quantum level in the face of political factionalism and environmental immaturity. Topics include corporate social responsibility; the evolution of the open-source-economy and sharing-economy movements; and how communication technology has transformed global human interaction, holding promise for future green activism.
Hawken vacillates between keen insight and delusional hopium. In the end, his conclusion that we need to try hard but also just live in awe of the spectacle is quite apt. Attacks on Iraq and Syria — An analysis of corporate TV news has found that the public was given almost no debate about whether the United States should go to war in Iraq and Syria.
The group Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting found that of the more than guests, just six voiced opposition to military action. On the high-profile Sunday talk shows, out of 89 guests, there was just one antiwar voice—Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation. Controlling the message is not a new concept, it's just that it has never been done so seamlessly or completely.
We are not quite in Orwell's world of yet, but we are getting there. Stolen Future, Broken Present — David Collings discusses the epochal environmental crisis that is unfolding. Climate change is a centerpiece, but this is a many-faceted problem with no easy solutions. Overcoming the psychology that fathered the problem may not be possible, but it's still worth trying.
Yep, the problem is one that is internal to the human makeup. It is indeed important that we keep trying to minimize the damage—it will make life more pleasant for longer. But we should always make the basis for discussion facts, not hopium.
Voting Machines—Computerized Election Theft — Jonathan Simon explains how Republicans have engaged in vote rigging via electronic voting machines over the last 10 years. Exit polls consistently disagree with election results, and Republicans are winning close races at a much higher rate than statistical probability would allow. Though some important issues are raised, this clip is mostly red meat for blue voters. Election theft started long before electronic voting machines, and while the Republicans may indeed currently have the upper hand in the legerdemain, the Democrats are not without their corrupt ways.
Among other things, they sold their soul when they colluded with Republicans to change election rules in a way that de facto excludes valid third-party candidates from the process, ensuring the Democrat-Republican duopoly.
And now, as their partner in crimes against democracy executes a doublecross to gain even more advantage, the Democrats cry foul. Any US citizen who still hopes that this mess can be fixed at the ballot box—or that it's "that other party" that is causing all the problems—is not paying attention.
Global Research News Hour. Dismantling the Pro-War Cult—The Myth of the Soldier as Guarantor of Freedom — The myth of the soldier as the guarantor of a nation's security and freedom has become widespread and reinforced in the imaginations of citizens, particularly in America.
Unthinking devotion to all things military has largely trumped public concern over the idea of war as an end unto itself or the effect war has on global stability or the amorality of US involvement in particular conflicts. Jonathan Wright is a "medical detective" who has perused over 50, research papers about hormones and other body systems; diet, vitamins, and minerals; botanicals, and other natural substances designed to heal.
He specializes in non-drug treatments for chronic health problems. Topics in this show include This is a firehose of information. Each individual's ears will find the things that may be relevant to him or her, so put on your slicker and listen up.
Perhaps the most monstrous example was the so-called "suicide letter," which threatened to expose King's sexual activities to the world unless he did "the one thing left" to escape shame. Yale Professor Beverly Gage discusses a recently discovered redaction-free version of the letter. Bob talks to Rosenfeld about some of the stunning revelations from his new book, Subversives: Rosenfeld states that the FBI is more accountable today.
Sure, because many of the heart-of-darkness operations have been migrated to other agencies, known and unknown. This Changes Everything Or Not — Naomi Klein argues that while it's too late to stop climate change, we can still take action to save our civilization.
Klein offers her vision of how we can foster a global movement to counter climate change. This is worth listening to because Klein does correctly identify several culprits in the current ecocidal ruling system—the financier class, excessive military spending, corporate hegemony, and the fossil-fuel-friendly political system—as barriers to doing anything real about climate change.
But she's got it backwards: The climate crisis is not the threat that will unite people against those elite forces. Instead, uniting the masses to take back power from the elites and reestablish a fair economic system should be the stated political goal.
That is Job 1, and trying to superimpose a divisive issue like climate on top of it is brainless. Chicken Big — Chickens raised for meat have quadrupled in weight since the 's, thanks to selective breeding. The meatier chickens are also being produced with much less feed, which makes the process of raising and marketing chicken more cost efficient. This is not a bad thing, but it says nothing about animal welfare in the industry, which is generally appalling. Whistleblower Alayne Fleischmann—JP Morgan's Worst Nightmare — Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the trend in some parts of the world where people are showing just how sick they are of a corrupt elite that holds itself above the law.
They also look at the headlines of students in India who believe in the right to cheat, and at innocent people in America who plead guilty to crimes they didn't commit. They talk about fraud in the mortgage backed securities business, the statute of limitations on wire fraud, and what exactly it is that Jamie Dimon wants. As long as the fines—regardless of whether they are "huge" and "record-breaking"—are less than the profit made from the illegal activities, the banksters will continue acting according to the dictum "crime pays.
It's surprising that a smart guy like Gause, who has a very clear vision of reality when it comes to the way the Ponzi money system works, doesn't seem to grasp that the science of global warming can be correct at the same time the proposed solutions are a scam. Anyway, pay attention to him on monetary issues; ignore him on climate science.
Steeling Ourselves Against the End of the World — In , a solar storm threw an electromagnetic pulse at Earth so strong, it fried the telegraph system. A whole lot more is on the line now. Rocky Rawlins of the Survivor Library talks about his efforts to make sure we are prepared for getting zapped back to a time before computers and an electric grid. A killer asteroid, for instance. The Last Policeman trilogy imagines what we would all do if we knew the world would end in six months.
Author Ben Winters explains. It's insane that the US does not harden the grid. FCC chairman Tom Wheeler had previously proposed a set of rules, yet to be voted on, that would create a two-tier system where companies who can afford to pay extra get faster service, leaving non-payers in the slow lane.
Craig Aaron of Free Press comments on the coming battle. I doubt it will be much of a battle. In this case, he has already telegraphed the out that will let him say one thing and do another: Economists on Oil—Hubris and Substitution — Richard Heinberg offers a good refresher on the basics of peak oil in light of recent trends in petroleum production, particularly the boom in the US.
He also discusses the delusions that economists engage in when it comes to matters that are more governed by physics than finance, such as energy and the climate. In particular, he responds to Paul Krugman's recent piece on "climate despair," which claimed that anti-environmentalist right-wingers and anti-capitalist environmentalists are both wrong to think that the world can't have economic growth without increasing greenhouse gas emissions.
Heinberg says Krugman either misunderstands or misrepresents the very reports that he cited to support his argument. Alas, Paul Krugman was the last best hope that mainstream economists had just one individual among them who was not an idiot. Much of the conversation centers on how our higher-learning institutions are not training our students correctly at the same time they foster high levels of post-graduation indebtedness.
McPherson contrasts his decision to leave academia with Klein's decision to stay within the system. A decent general discussion. Robots at War — Can replacing human soldiers with robot warriors save lives and make war more humane?
The consensus seems to be that the laws of war are not written in computer code, and modern warfare is not ready for killer robots that "decide" without human input.
