 The Cove
picture Their own version of 'Oceans 11' and it was better than - and more so!

I have just signed the letter to Obama and Biden with these comments:
I just watched The Cove in West LA. I am disgusted with the farcical IWC's nonsense, and Japan's nonsense science and cartel with impoverished nations – trying to legalize whaling including small cetaceans! This is ‘empire consciousness’ with NO REGARD for conscious and intelligent life. This entire coup is so corrupt – I think the IWC needs to be investigated and something must be done to protect our dying oceans! The mercury poisoning and the devastation to our marine life is unconscionable!!!

This is a must-see film. It is not OTT with graphics and only the last 5 minutes shows what their 'Mission Impossible' coup uncovered. It doesn't pull on your heart strings to a place where one cannot discern and consider the story and the important information.

I think those men (and woman) are the sexiest bravest men alive - and what a beautiful soul that woman diver had!

Empire consciousness has created this massive cover-up in Japan. However if we had hidden rocks and cameras in our own empire, who knows what we would uncover also? It's not that Japan isn't trying to be the next Empire just like we did after the Europeans.. but it's the cartel they have created with the IWC, International Whaling Commission. Really dispicable... Japan buying countries into joining the IWC. Countries that have been literally manipulated into Japan's nonsense science -- actually trying to say cetaceans are the reason the food crisis, ocean fish crisis is so severe! The reason is the Japanese cartel on the world wide fish markets. In 40 years, or less, it will be gone. 70% of all humans get their primary source of income from fish from the seas. New commissions and new visionairies are required to EXPOSE these horors -- but also to create a less corrupt mandate, governed by science and thorough investigation by environmental groups. It is very powerful the man who trained 'flipper' is the biggest activist in this film. I am inspired. DEEPLY INSPIRED. Bravo to these renegade film makers! GO SEE THIS FILM! ONE OF THE BEST EVER MADE SINCE SCHINDLER'S LIST BUT WAY EASIER TO WATCH!

 12 reasons same-sex marriage will ruin society
picture 1) Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control are not natural.

2) Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people cannot get legally married because the world needs more children.

3) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children because straight parents only raise straight children.

 Scarlet Skies
"Jewels of the forest," is how Wolfgang described the unparalleled collection of radiance in flight. Purple honey creeper, green honey creeper, tufted coquette hummingbird, copper-rumped hummingbird, blue-crowned motmot, bearded bellbird, blue gray tanager, silver beaked tanager, boat-billed flycatcher, golden-headed mannequin, black-tailed tityra: Although I'm not a keeper of scorecards, in a few hours of exploring trails, perching on the verandah and with the help of Sheldon, one of Asa Wright's professional rangers/guides. I observed more bird species than in all of the previous year— including a trip to Costa Rica.

We had heard fantastic stories about Caroni Bird Sanctuary, a mangrove swamp oasis surrounded by nondescript grass marshes near the airport. The evening fly-in of the national bird, the scarlet ibis, so great in number, we were told, that as the blood-red chicken-sized waterfowl took roost in mangroves, the green forest slowly turned red.

... Then we saw it - our first scarlet ibis, shimmering red in an emerald tangle. "Red" doesn't do this supernatural beast justice, the color so intense that you'd swear It's generated by some mysterious internal electronic mechanism.

 It's all in our Air!
By Natasha McDowell
New Scientist
January 3, 2003

Repeated airborne infections of the bacteria acinetobacter in an intensive care ward have been eliminated by the installation of a negative air ioniser.

In the first such epidemiological study, researchers found that the infection rate fell to zero during the year long trial. "We were absolutely astounded to find such clear cut results," engineer Clive Begg at the University of Leeds, UK, told New Scientist.

Stephen Dean, a consultant at the St James's Hospital in Leeds where the trial took place says: "The results have been fantastic -- so much so that we have asked the university to leave the ionisers with us."
