The thing about protests is that they're going to be ineffective. They just are. They might sway some opinions, but decisions on Wall Street and Capitol Hill are made based on economics; opinions don't matter. *People* don't matter. These things inevitably become violent as frustration over the ineffectual expenditures of time and energy on both sides mount, and nothing changes except that 'we thepeople' have allowed ourselves once again to be represented as being desperately in need of the nanny state we claim to hate. The mature, responsible, effective thing to do is to listen, speak, conduct thorough (or at least sufficient) research, present cogent arguments, and have the patience to hash things out in meaningful ways until change is effected without destroying everything we're trying to build.

Thanks to Mr. Wizard

This is a true story of Mother’ s Sacrifice during the Japan Earthquake. After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supporting by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head. With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescuer team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping that this woman could be still alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away for sure. He and the rest of the team left this house and were going to search the next collapsed building. For some reasons, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruin house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his had through the narrow cracks to search the little sp

When It Comes to Politics

I'm interested in what you think is working, or what you think would work. I'm interested in your perspectives on what's wrong only as they apply to how we can make it right. I'm not at all interested in your religious stance except to the degree that it influences your approach to the rest of the world, same with your race or gender or any of your many orientations. Those things may (or may not) tell me more about who you are, but do not define whether or not I can agree or work with you. I'm not even interested in your political affiliation unless you let it make it your choices for you. But I am interested. We'll never fix anything standin' around pointin' at the broken parts and doing nothing, and we'll only ruin ourselves by ruining our country and our world, constant destructive criticism and violent uprisings being among the quickest, most effective ways to do that. We can fix most things by giving experts the resources they need to put togeth

BBC News - Vancouver Insite drug-injection facility can stay open

The taxpayer-funded facility is located in a deprived district of Vancouver North America's only legal drug-injection site can stay open, Canada's Supreme Court rules, in a defeat for the country's conservative government. The supervised injection site opened in Vancouver in 2003 with a federal exemption permitting illegal drug use. Its supporters say it has helped prevent overdoses, reduced infections, and curbed crime and open drug use. [...] Full article at   Posted via email from Moments of Awareness

BBC News - Internet of things: Should you worry if your jeans go smart?

More and more objects are getting on the web What if those new jeans you've just bought start tweeting about your location as you cross London Bridge? It sounds far-fetched, but it's possible - if one of your garments is equipped with a tiny radio-frequency identification device (RFID), your location could be revealed without you knowing about it. RFIDs are chips that use radio waves to send data to a reader - which in turn can [...] Full article at The technology is there. Barring a disaster (of any kind) of catastrophic proportions, it will remain and someone will utilize it. The more people who put it into use, the wider our understanding of it will be as the government decides (or, ideally, we decide) how they'll utilize it. One place I think it ought to be instituted immediately is in letting constituents have the ability to access real-time data at any time a politician is on the clock or using the government's dime as to what they&

BBC News - 'Talking' cars could reduce motorway pile-ups

Crash alarms are relayed to approaching vehicles so they slow and safely stop long before reaching an accident "Talking" cars may soon be a reality - even without the need for human-like facial features, claim researchers. Scientists from the University of Bologna in Italy have developed software that lets cars "communicate" with one another on the road. Similar technology had been used before but this time, said the team, cars would be able to "know" what had happened kilometres ahead.

BBC News - What damage does alcohol do to our bodies?

We know that drinking too much alcohol is bad for us. It gives us hangovers, makes us feel tired and does little for our appearance - and that is just the morning afterwards. Long term, it increases the risk of developing a long list of health conditions including breast cancer, oral cancers, heart disease, strokes and cirrhosis of the liver. Research shows that a high alcohol intake can also damage our mental health, impair memory skills and reduce fertility. [...] Full article at There'll never be a true 'one-size-fits-all' answer for any nutritional or medical question. It shouldn't be the government's job to tell citizens how or how much we can or even should do of anything, but to see that what we do do we do with the greatest degree of safety and understanding (on our own parts and the parts of those around us) possible, not so that people can be deadbeat freeloading do-nothing dropouts from life and live off the system, but so

BBC News - Smart cities get their own operating system

Smart cities with devices chatting to each other may dot the planet in the near future Cities could soon be looking after their citizens all by themselves thanks to an operating system designed for the metropolis. The Urban OS works just like a PC operating system but keeps buildings, traffic and services running smoothly. The software takes in data from sensors dotted around the city to keep an eye on what is happening. [...] Full article at   Posted via email from Moments of Awareness

BBC News - Denmark introduces world's first food fat tax

Some scientists think saturated fat may be the wrong target Denmark has introduced what is believed to be the world's first fat tax - a surcharge on foods that are high in saturated fat. Butter, milk, cheese, pizza, meat, oil and processed food are now subject to the tax if they contain more than 2.3% saturated fat. Some consumers began hoarding to beat the price rise, while some producers call the tax a bureaucratic nightmare. [...] Full article at I agree that refined starches and sugars are more problematic than many fats. I also agree that if there is going to be a 'sin tax', if we are going to let government dictate morals through selective taxation, it should start with the habits most damaging to our health, and malnutrition and overeating (while probably more effectively addressed through education and habit rehabilitation) too often coexist and are at the foundation of more health problems than any other substance that's prone

BBC News - Paris launches electric car-sharing scheme

Electric rental cars will be available to hire across Paris from next week Continue reading the main story Paris is launching its first car-sharing project as it aims to clear its traffic-clogged boulevards. The backers hope the scheme will be a major boost for electric vehicles. The Autolib system is intended to build on the success of the Velib bicycle-rental service, similar to that operating in many European cities.
