Re: “World Bank Accused of Deadly Dealings in Honduras

As a Honduran who still lives in Honduras I am tired o seeing this kind od news about my country, the reporters on various news sites keep spreading this lies about what is really going on here, "the farmers" that you keep calling them are being paid by varous organizations in Honduras who have ties with drug lords and have their own agenda, I've seen reports from Al Jeezera and other news channels and they keep tellong only one side of the story blaming the big corportation who hire and give jobs to the people on the region and "the farmers" dedicate themselves to create caos in the area so that the drug trafficking goes unnoticed, please stop spreading lies about our country for a quick buck.

Re: “World Bank Accused of Deadly Dealings in Honduras

Palm Oil is definitely an economic opportunity for the poor farmers in less developed countries.

The execution and delivery however needs further scrutiny, so that other responsible & innocent oil palm tree growers around the world will not get prosecuted and become the 'fall guy' un-necessarily.

Re: “World Obesity Levels Surge

It's not so much the food as it is lack of exercise.

Re: “World Obesity Levels Surge

This article is presenting ignorant dis-information at its worst.
What's primarily causing obesity isn't eating more meat and fat, it's eating grain fed meats and the wrong kinds of fat, particularly trans-fats.
But the real contributor to obesity is sugars, starches (particularly in grains & starchy vegetables) and other carbohydrates in any quantities other than very small amounts, especially when consumed with fats, which increases the negative effects on the heart as well.
Carbohydrates are the only macro-nutrients that the human body has no requirement for.
Yet these unnecessary substances have become the primary ingested food of more and more of the world's population, with the resulting health deterioration that is expanding world wide.
The people writing these articles need to get a clue and stop spreading bad information to the public at large.

Re: “The Top 4 Threats to World Peace

Number one is clearly a no brainer, unless one's mind is clouded by blind pseudo-patriotism.
"As the world's sometimes eager, sometimes reluctant policeman,"
This is the kind of wording that Orwell would be proud of.
It's no wonder that the police at home are becoming more and more like the troops/police sent out by the Military Industrial Cartel to terrorize people in other countries.
What goes around, comes around.
The fact that Israel only came in 5th is a testament to the Zionists ability to shroud their nefarious actions behind surrogates such as the U.S. and Britain.

Re: “Video: 2013's Comet of the Year

To combat the non-Euclidean relativist con game, I have decided to introduce THE CONE GAME! Here is a link to a moving 3-D model of this comet's path, which also shows the path of the planets as the comet comes within earth's orbit as well as the curved path of the comet which is very nearly a conic section as is an ellipse.

ARE YOU READY FOR THE CONE GAME? Given three or four sightings and reported positions of a comet, Gauss was able to calculate the path of the comet and predict future positions. He was able to do this by first recognizing that the path would be a curved path known as a conic section (the curve that would appear where a plane intersects a cone). It is interesting to compare the curves in a moving 3-D model using this idea that the path of the comet and of the planets in the model are conic sections. Can someone by just looking at the 3-D model figure out what type of conic section curve most nearly describes the comet's path? The way I view it is that the top of the cone of an ice cream cone is a circle, which is where a plane cuts across the cone. If you imagine where a parallel plane cuts across the cone further down, the intersection is a smaller circle. Then if you imagine that plane tilted slightly, the intersection with the cone that had previously been that smaller circle becomes slightly elongated, which forms an ellipse. One of Kepler's laws was that the path of a planet orbiting the sun is an ellipse. So ellipses describe the orbits of the planets in the model. Using your imagination, the more you tilt the plane that passes through the cone, the more elongated the ellipse where the plane intersects the cone becomes, until you tilt the plane so far that the plane is parallel to a straight line inside the surface of the cone; the intersection then becomes a U shape that passes up through the top of the cone. The curve with this shape is called a parabola, which is also a conic section. If you keep tilting the plane further though, it becomes a hyperbola: the plane is no longer parallel to a straight line in the surface of the cone, but the intersection of the plane and cone is still a U shape that passes up through the top of the cone.

Of course Gauss couldn't have calculated the path of a comet using non-Euclidean geometry. If you are using coordinates or angle measurements, you are using Euclidean geometry because non-Euclidean geometry, including the Riemannian type, without Hilbert's Theorem 8 [5 in earlier books] does not have coordinates and does not have the SAS triangle congruency theorem. If Gauss thought this could be done with non-Euclidean mathematics (with Theorem 8 in Hilbert's time), then he would have failed to realize that would be based on self-contradicting geometry. And without the coordinates there is no basis for a mapping with a non-Euclidean 'space.' See the Facebook Note:

Re: “Astronauts Step Out for a Christmas Eve Spacewalk

Why don't they use those new high-fidelity cameras to film some more UFO fly by's and release the videos for public viewing along with all of the other videos they've already taken over the years.
It's time to break the black out and the silence folks.

Re: “Pope Francis Leads Christmas Eve Mass

A smart move by the church, bringing in someone who is adept at making the peasants feel better about their plight, just as the earlier church 'fathers' meshed pagan festivals with an imaginary birth date, to make the pagans more amenable to the christian belief system.

Using the nativity production is the original 'Wag the Dog' manipulation.
Who was it said "repeat it often enough and the people will believe it"?
Same goes for displaying it often enough.
And these producers have had almost 800 years of repetition to create believers.
Deserves some sort of theatrical award.

Re: “Aircraft Attacked, Four US Service Members Injured in South Sudan

Here we go again.
It's time to 'Wag the Dog' one more time.
Time to whip up some phony patriotism for the next heist.
Just setting the stage for stealing more resources.
Let's see, an easy guess would point to...oil, since that's the usual resource the Corporate/Government Cartel goes to war to grab.
And a tiny bit of quick research shows that the winner is....OIL!!!
What a surprise.
A tiny bit more research U.S. Corporate/Government Cartel is actively moving into Africa to grab as many resources as they can.
And the playbook is S.O.P.:
Economic Hit Men go in first to make as many deals & steals as possible.
Failing that, and possibly along with that, the fomenting of civil unrest occurs.
Next is putting boots on the ground in the guise of humanitarian aid.
Then committing mercenaries and/or troops on the ground.
Then further whipping up of phony patriotism with 'Support Our Troops', hoopla and ribbons.
Then Punch the country into submission.
Control and extract the resources.
And let's not forget the primary driver of the whole effort:
Take control of the banking structure and fold it into the World Bank Cartel.
And Voila! Fait accompli!

Re: “Christmas 2013 Marred by Disturbing Weather Across the Planet

Disturbing Weather? Implying what? Do you remember what the weather was like 20 thousand years ago when the latest Ice age began to end, and what is now the Sahara Desert was a land of blue lakes and verdant pastures, and mean sea level was 400 ft lower than presently? How did that happen? Before you answer, remember that 7 ice ages totaling about 700,000 years have come and gone during the last 1 million years and sea level has risen & fallen about 400 ft with each cycle. Think that's caused by humans?

Re: “Nelson Mandela Laid to Rest

There's no doubt that the changes that happened in South Africa needed to happen.
And Mandela was certainly instrumental in those changes.
And deserves recognition for his contributions.
What's also a fact is that a key part of his participation in those changes involved terrorism.
He was a leader of the African National Congress (ANC), an organization designated a terrorist group by the U.S. State Department and many governments and intelligence agencies.
He was also a co-founder of the ANC’s Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation), a militant terrorist group within a terrorist group.
He was tried and convicted for his terrorist and subversive activities within those organizations.
So....what's particularly interesting about the adoration given the man, is that it supports the use of terrorism to gain one's long as those aims are deemed lofty by those giving adoration.
This is quite an act of hypocrisy coming from those living in countries that are supposedly fighting a 'War on Terror' around the world.
This just lends credence to the idea that 'One group's terrorist is another group's freedom fighter'.

Re: “South Africa Prepares for a Week of Mandela Memorials

The concept of Equality has been conveniently adopted over and over by many causes that had nothing to do with Equality. Recently, the media has confused this concept by leveling Equality with the right for same sex marriage. In the past instead it was confused with everyone’s right to have an equal amount of wealth. Still, Equality is something else. Although many people want to pursue this ideal much confusion makes it much too blurry to materialize. It is not possible to Respect a concept that is not understood. For Equality to spread all over, it would take a Plan based on the most solid principles and one strategy led by a new and clear definition of the concept of Equality. The journey toward Equality would be like entering a labyrinth with the confidence to find the way out because of one compass that will help us to navigate and to reach the destination. Wavevolution offers that compass to navigate in that labyrinth which is our reality. Like in a "domino effect" the doors will open one after another and a mirrored light will show the exit.…

Re: “Latinas Who Rule

Good for Latin America.
If the controllers have Hellary in mind for 2016 then they plan to have her ride the horse to the ground.
This will undoubtedly lead to a long gap until there's a similar gender president.
By design.

Re: “Nelson Mandela Dies at 95

If I remember correctly, the Republicans in the United States supported aparthied. Reagan called Mandela a terrorist. It is pretty much the same now. Meaning the feelings the Republicans had then still applies today. Mandela changed a country, it's too bad the Republicans can't follow suit.

The greatest freedom fighter of all time; he first belonged to South Africa and then to the rest of the world. Thank you Mr. Mandela for showing us what forgiveness is all about.
