Allan Savory’s presentation on January 25, 2013, about how Holistic Management restores grasslands from land that’s degraded to desert. This innovative, natural, and simple idea mimics Nature by using careful management of livestock to stimulate the regrowth of grasses, animals, and puts large amount of greenhouse gases (GHG’s) from the air into the soil.

The monstrous effects on Korean civilians of the methods of warfare adopted by the United Nations — the blanket fire bombing of North Korean cities, the destruction of dams and the resulting devastation of the food supply and an unremitting aerial bombardment more intensive than anything experienced during the Second World War. At one point the Americans gave up bombing targets in the North when their intelligence reported that there were no more buildings over one story high left standing in the entire country … the overall death toll was staggering: possibly as many as four million people.

In Windows operating systems there used to be an interesting piece of code: everything indicates that it was a backdoor allowing NSA to access and execute any code on any Windows installation.
Let me quote the last paragraph of the article:
According to one leading US cryptographer, the IT world should be thankful that the subversion of Windows by NSA has come to light before the arrival of CPUs that handles encrypted instruction sets. These would make the type of discoveries made this month impossible. “Had the next-generation CPU’s with encrypted instruction sets already been deployed, we would have never found out about NSAKEY.”
We don’t know if Microsoft has any backdoor for NSA in Windows XP or any newer Windows. Even if it has it is probably impossible for anyone to detect, unless someone will obtain source code of a new Windows system and will analyze that code very carefully or… Microsoft will confirm on its own existence of such backdoor. ;)
Microsoft is showing regularly that it’s not worth to trust them. In my humble opinion there is a big possibility that backdoor like this exists in contemporary Windows systems.
Sooner than we think, our planet will burn away. (…) Climate change is the catalyst, but the causes are an economic system that prefers growth over stability, resource depletion over efficiency, and ignores the signals of reality.
Global warming and nuclear arms conflicts threaten the planet, thanks in no small part to U.S. policy failures
Awesome article showing USA egoism, hypocrisy and lack of respect for human rights.

Costas was found dead on the 9th of March 2005, one day before Vodafone CEO Mr. George Koronias went to the Prime Minister’s office to announce that conversations of the Prime Minister, top cabinet members and military brass were bugged through Vodafone facilities.
SAVAK (…) was the secret police, domestic security and intelligence service established by Iran’s Mohammad Reza Shah with the help of the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency (…)
According to Iranian political historian Ervand Abrahamian, after this attack SAVAK interrogators were sent abroad [probably to USA] for “scientific training to prevent unwanted deaths from ‘brute force.’ Brute force was supplemented with the bastinado; sleep deprivation; extensive solitary confinement; glaring searchlights; standing in one place for hours on end; nail extractions; snakes (favored for use with women); electrical shocks with cattle prods, often into the rectum; cigarette burns; sitting on hot grills; acid dripped into nostrils; near-drownings; mock executions; and an electric chair with a large metal mask to muffle screams while amplifying them for the victim. This latter contraption was dubbed the Apollo—an allusion to the American space capsules. Prisoners were also humiliated by being raped, urinated on, and forced to stand naked.
Very interesting security agency, trained by the USA CIA.

Technology lets us make very realistic movies with animals without actually forcing any real animal to act, without hurting animals.
When in their natural surroundings—not on factory farms—pigs are social, playful, protective animals who bond with each other, make nests, relax in the sun, and cool off in the mud. Pigs are known to dream, recognize their own names, learn “tricks” like sitting for a treat, and lead social lives of a complexity previously observed only in primates. Many pigs even sleep in ‘pig piles,’ much like dogs. Some love to cuddle and others prefer space.
