Did u notice the disasters are growing in number and quantum, how many more then last year, how much pain and deaths, hunger and ppl without homes or drinkwater, i ts really happening, there is nothing like a natural disaster to remind humans how little coFortunately, too, there is nothing like an environmental catastrophe to bring people together and show the positive power of human collaboration in the face of adversity. Grouped into the four ancient elemental categories of land, water, fire and sky here are thirty of the most devastating disasters in recent human history. Dont dispair, only from the bottom we are able to build up a better world, thus earth, keep ur good faith in what u do, stay open to good vibrations and stay tuned with ur own goals, if they add to a better life, for u, earth and nature...just be honest and dont fall back, there is not more u can do, or have to do, then being positif and straith, stayed tuned in a green way off life, nt judge and enjoy all u achieve, look in the mirror and smile, u won th race towards ur life, within the whome, so be the best as well here in ur life on earth, u dont have to be angel, just after all we are all nature, that will help us with our first steps towards a real human and better world. A PART OFF THIS STORY HAS BEEN COPIED.marjolein
One of the clearest changes is earlier onset of spring and lengthening of the growing season. We designed the present study to examine the interactive effects of timing of dormancy release of seeds with low and high atmospheric CO2 on biomass, reproduction, and phenology in ragweed plants (Ambrosia artemisiifolia L.), which produce highly allergenic pollen.
Timing and CO2 interacted to influence pollen production. At ambient CO2 levels, the earlier cohort acquired a greater biomass, a higher average weight per inflorescence, and a larger number of inflorescences; flowered earlier; and had 54.8% greater pollen production than did the latest cohort. At high CO2 levels, plants showed greater biomass and reproductive effort compared with those in ambient CO2 but only for later cohorts. In the early cohort, pollen production was similar under ambient and high CO2, but in the middle and late cohorts, high CO2 increased pollen production by 32% and 55%, respectively, compared with ambient CO2 levels. Overall, ragweed pollen production can be expected to increase significantly under predicted future climate conditions.

For much of the past 10 years, beekeepers, primarily in the United States and Europe, have been reporting annual hive losses of 30 percent or higher, substantially more than is considered normal or sustainable. But this winter, many U.S. beekeepers experienced losses of 40 to 50 percent or more, just as commercial bee operations prepared to transport their hives for the country's largest pollinator event: the fertilizing of California's almond trees. No one investigating the issue is suggesting that neonicotinoids are the sole cause of current bee declines. Tucker, other beekeepers, and entomologists say that the cause of colony collapse disorder is likely a combination of factors that includes the widespread use of pesticides and fungicides, as well as the spread of viral pathogens and parasitic mites in beehives. While mites and diseases have long been known to cause significant declines in domesticated bee populations, no single pathogen or parasite, say entomologists, appears to sufficiently explain the current rate of hive collapse.
In the U.S., neonicotinoids are currently used on about 95 percent of corn and canola crops; the majority of cotton, sorghum, and sugar beets; and about half of all soybeans. They're also used on the vast majority of fruit and vegetable crops, including apples, cherries, peaches, oranges, berries, leafy greens, tomatoes, and potatoes. Neonicotinoids are also applied to cereal grains, rice, nuts, and wine grapes.
Please read this article and maybe even more on this website, maybe u like it and need to be supported in this way,
When individuals value and understand peace they enjoy better lives.
If u are down and out, this is not easy to tkae in, these words dont say much unless u feel it, u know this is the actual truth, but how do u get there, how do u enable the peace in ur mind and heart, well check this out, go to the url and read, see scroll down till u found the words which fitts in the most for u........
Peace is more than political peace. Peace is a fundamental experience of existence within every single human being.
I wish ua pleasant experience, warm hugs for all and take care, u are the most important person in this worl, because all starts with u, every step u make is urs, all u see is through ur eyes, also what u think makes u.... you
We believe that every person should have the opportunity to answer life’s fundamental questions and experience the peace and fulfillment
“What is the miracle? What do we see? What do we appreciate? What do we know? What do we learn? What do we understand every single day?”
These are the words of Prem Rawat, when i was 20 years i ponce met him and i did get knowledge by a mahamtma, assayins, we were, i really changed, suddenly the world looked different, somhow my ego was less, allthough i never gave up my mind, which was bactually asked and needed to obtain that knowledge.
I still think of his words, i still feel like new and glowing when i think of that period and the difference it braught me, now maybe this is something for u, if u want to get more direction in ur life, a purpose, goal, leading/guidance according to a spiritual vieuw, while u still do ur job, or take care of ur family, while u notchange ur life, but the way u see, think and will feel, i recommand to search for him, to look him up, floolow him, just to get wise lessons to be of more importance to urself, to what u do and so will think or feel.
I will put in some more wise words spoken by him, and his picture as well, everybody who ever met him or was taken away by him, has a certain clearety, a path, life makes sense and what u are able to do with it, how to live it, where u want to be or care for, make ur spot a steppingstone for others, he will tell u, u will know how or what to do.
Some say peace is the absence of war; some say peace is when you are free from all the problems of the world. Peace is more than political peace. Peace is a fundamental experience of existence within every single human being.
It is in the minds of men that wars are created. It is from the hearts of human beings that peace will be created. If every individual were to value and feel at peace with themselves there would be no wars. There is something essentially good in every human being, when we find it, nurture it and live consciously, peace becomes a reality.
And how do we communicate? In person–with vibrational words, of all things.
But we also think and write mostly in words to express feelings, concepts and images. Do words therefore have intrinsic power even when not spoken? Big question. One thing for sure – how we formulate and express concepts can be helped or hindered by this pre-designed societal packaging medium called language.
Alas, generations of hand-me-down languages, some clearly better than others, some lost to antiquity.
The Language Matrix
The human spirit always comes through. We have infinite consciousness within each of us, what manifests as personality, or spirit. It cannot be quenched or contained, as hard as the social engineers try.
But I believe we MUST be aware of the relentless attempts to dumb down and suppress and limit humanity and realize the parameters we were born into “ain’t necessarily so”! It’s worth thinking about…
When you realize natural foods and remedies are called “alternative” medicine and have been inherently marginalized by the wording, whereas “modern medicine” is the bastardized alternative, you start to get it.
When you see how “conspiracy” is automatically attached to “theory” and thereby auto-debunked, you start to get it.
But also nature has its languag par example the bee, this animal relates on the langage they have like ants do, they tell eachother where to find food, when things are dangerous and so on.
Flowers often produce bright colours, patterns and enticing fragrances to attract their pollinators. Researchers at Bristol’s School of Biological Sciences, led by Professor Daniel Robert, found that flowers also have their equivalent of a neon sign – patterns of electrical signals that can communicate information to the insect pollinator. These electrical signals can work in concert with the flower’s other attractive signals and enhance floral advertising power.
Plants are usually charged negatively and emit weak electric fields. On their side, bees acquire a positive charge as they fly through the air. No spark is produced as a charged bee approaches a charged flower, but a small electric force builds up that can potentially convey information.
By placing electrodes in the stems of petunias, the researchers showed that when a bee lands, the flower’s potential changes and remains so for several minutes. Could this be a way by which flowers tell bees another bee has recently been visiting? To their surprise, the researchers discovered that bumblebees can detect and distinguish between different floral electric fields.
Also, the researchers found that when bees were given a learning test, they were faster at learning the difference between two colours when electric signals were also available.
How then do bees detect electric fields? This is not yet known, although the researchers speculate that hairy bumblebees bristle up under the electrostatic force, just like one’s hair in front of an old television screen.
The discovery of such electric detection has opened up a whole new understanding of insect perception and flower communication.
“The last thing a flower wants is to attract a bee and then fail to provide nectar: a lesson in honest advertising since bees are good learners and would soon lose interest in such an unrewarding flower.
“The co-evolution between flowers and bees has a long and beneficial history, so perhaps it’s not entirely surprising that we are still discovering today how remarkably sophisticated their communication is.”
Please check this out and sign, this system of transport and awfull cruel behavior against animals is unacceptable, its going on for so many years already and it should be stopped yesterday, please spread the url ask everybody to sign to make more attention possible for this really untolerant way of gaining meat.
On 1 January, the ban on the sow stall came into force across the European Union*. But official data seen by Compassion in World Farming indicated that, sadly, up to 14 nations would not comply on time. The countries we believe may be in breach of the ban are Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and the Netherlands.
Let’s make 2013 the year sows in all EU countries finally get the better life they deserve!
* Sow stalls are now banned in the EU – sows must be kept in groups after the first four weeks of pregnancy until the last week of pregnancy.
This is a nice statement about the advanatages of hemp against the polluting oil-industry, i will quote what u could read urself and more, if u clcik the url given above.
Please refuce to use plastic anyhow u are able to and try to find the better alternatif, so in the end us people will be the key of the right and responseble products.
al oil production is declining at 8-10% per year. And what does this mean? Higher prices. For EVERYTHING.
Now, this is not the end of the world as we know it. There IS a solution, and that solution is HEMP.
Hemp does everything that petroleum does, AND BETTER!
Extracting fossil fuels are harmful to the environment and to human health. Petroleum extracting and processing is a chemical-intensive, expensive process. Hemp oil for fuel is simply a matter of growing, harvesting, and processing.
Petroleum-based plastics are not biodegradable. Hemp-based plastics are recyclable and biodegradable.
Fuel for transportation can be replaced with hemp-based biofuels. Hemp fuel is clean, efficient, and…if it spills it does not harm the environment, it is more like a fertilizer.
Everything, EVERYTHING, that petroleum does, hemp does. So, why are we feeling this pain from fossil fuels?
Why are we not allowing our farmers to grow hemp? Well, we know the reasons – big oil, pharma, timber, and chemical companies do not want to lose their investment dollars; the military – using OUR dollars to fund wars, some of which have to do with…yes, you guessed it…OIL.

Hira Ratan Manek claims that since 1995 he has lived many days solely on sunlight and water.
Sun gazing is the practice of staring directly at the sun to receive “nourishment” from it.
The practice is controversial since some believe that looking directly at the sun for even brief periods of time may cause blindnessor severe damage to the eye. Most eye care professionals advise against looking directly at the sun.
“Sun gazing is a relaxed look at the sun just as we see sunriseand sunset,” Manek said. “It gives all benefits for health. Those who practice sun gazing get total health of mind, body and spirit without any cost … but only at safe times of the sun.”
Sun gazing is often practiced with the bare feet in direct contact with bare earth. Some sun gazers only sun gaze during the so-called safe hours, one half hour after sunrise and one half hour before sunset, while others feel that sun gazing can be done at other times of the day.
Manek, 69, from Bodhavad, India, has studied sun gazing for several years and claims that since June 1995 he has lived only on sun energyand water. Occasionally for hospitality and social purposes he drinks tea, coffee and buttermilk.
What we traditionally eat is nothing but a secondary source of sun energy,” he said. “But the body has a mechanism to receive energy directly from the sun and store it to use as it requires.”
Some positive results reported by sun gazers are increased energy level and decreased appetite.
Pravda.ru has recently published an article about another case of so called “sun eating”.
Nikolai Dolgoruky calls himself a “sun eater.” He lives in the Dnepr region of Ukraine. He feeds only on prana and solar energy.
“After arriving in a village where he lives, I saw a barefooted man standing on the porch. He was wearing a bright orange dress with the sun embroidered on the chest. The man’s face looked otherworldly, his eyes glistened, and a smile crossed his face. He moved about easily and seemed to be barely touching the ground. He did not have no sunken cheeks nor bags under his eyes. His skin was glowing from inside as if he were a happy teenaged girl”.
