The Aware American - Do not be one of the Sheeple!

Posted on in Politics

Yesterday I had some time so, I decided to make this movie using the XtraNormal.com online software. It took WAY longer than I thought it would but was lots of fun.

While making it, I had the idea of quoting Miss South Carolina 2007 answering a question in the Miss Teen USA contest. It was a perfect fit and worked better than I thought it would. At first I had the protagonist almost making fun of the clueless waitress, but in the end, I just had to make it compassionate and have him show her some kindess. After all ~ that is The Way.

I also seized the opportunity to suggest checking out Rense.com. As always, have an open mind, especially when you visit Rense.com! There's some really good information running through that site, you just have to know how to filter it and use your good judgement.

The Petkau effect: Effects of long-term radiation

Posted on in Health
Dr Abram PetkauDr. Abram Petkau

Lately there has been a lot of talk about the radiation from the Fukushima meltdown in the atmosphere. Radiation has been officially detected in rain water and in our air from many areas in the USA, Europe and elsewhere. Each time one of these findings is reported, we are told that it is far below danger levels and that it is harmless and we have nothing to be concerned about.

Is this true? Can we believe what we are being told? Is it truly harmless?

Back in 1972 Dr. Abram Petkau conducted some tests trying to see how much radiation it would take to damage cell walls. He discovered that 3500 rads in 2ΒΌ hours would destroy a cell membrane. Then he decided to see what effect low doses of radiation over long periods of time would have on the membrane.

His discovery was frightening.

Television Is Bad T-Shirt

Posted on in Philosophy

 

 

Television Is BadA while back I created this t-shirt design. Guess I was reacting to all the crap the boob-tube inflicts on the masses while dumbing them down. No, no.., I'm not cynical!

Let's face it, there really is some terrible television programming happening these days. Sure ~ there is some good stuff too, maybe even some very good, but it seems most is designed for idiots or to create idiots.

Since the interweb was unleashed, the time I used to spend watching television I now spend in front of my laptop. Not sure this is good, either, actually. I should be playing guitar or writing lyrics or hanging with friends or looking for my next ex-gf (told you I wasn't cynical).

It seems corporate media has an agenda they always want to push. Maybe it's political or moral or just financial, but there almost always seems to be some under-current pulling the viewer towards their often times disguised goal. It feels like some people I don't really know but I kind of trust but who are a bad influence on me. You know, the ones your grandma tensed her suspicious eyes at when you spoke about them.

Feel

Posted on in Philosophy

japan-earthquake-victimAfter all the endless Hollywood movies depicting violence, disaster and tragedy, people become desensitized and it often times takes something extreme to make us react or feel. The earthquakes in Japan and Haiti were very real, very extreme and very tragic.

In my awareness it has always been clear to me that it is important to allow myself to feel the events that happen around the world. Sitting here in Florida, USA it can be easy to have a sense of calm and content, as if nothing could ever happen where I live. It would be easy to shrug off the earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, starvation, bomb killings, hurricanes and move on with my life. After-all, there's nothing I can do about it, right?

WRONG.
