Care well for your children = Vaccinate

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Rarely does a clear case of scientific fraud come up (rare as in ratio of fraudulant research to research). Even rarer does it cost lives .. children’s lives! Link to British Medical Journal article (full text), and pdf file of actual data compares, if you need to see that.

Just shocking! Please, plelase, please vaccinate your kids.

  • It would be nepotism.
  • It would jinx her.
  • She will win in a landslide without any help.
  • You have to live in Johnson City.

    Kibbutz Masada

    Can you spot Kibbutz Masada, from this Earth Obervatory view, where I “worked” on my cousin’s chicken farm one summer long past? You never forget the smell because it never quite leaves you. Speaking of never forgetting read this travelogue. Then listen to the President’s greeting (and I thought he was Irish).

    Innovation = It isn’t rocket science

    Oh yeah, … it is!

    This is based on real events, and was produced and directed by a NASA astronaut.

    On a brighter note, the 2009 online calendar for Yuri’s night parties worldwide is up.

    “Yuri Gagarin was the first human to go into space on April 12th, 1961. The US Space Shuttle first launched on April 12th, 1981. Yuri’s Night is like the St Patricks Day or Cinco de Mayo for space. It is one day when all the world can come together and celebrate the power and beauty of space and what it means for each of us.”

    Interestingly, there is no party yet for either Boston nor Moscow.

    Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi & Stanislav Petrov = Men who saved the World from war

    Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

    Born on this date in 1869 and assassinated 60 years ago, Mahatma Ghandi’s great TRUTH is the possibility of using non-violence to achieve freedom and justice.  He said,

    If the mad race for armaments continues, it is bound to result in a slaughter such as has never occurred in history.

    On September 26, 1983 it almost happened. As recounted in an upcoming documentary by independent director Slawomir Grünberg, a Soviet Lieutenant in charge of monitoring US missles correctly assessed 5 blips on his radar as system errors, and did not push the red button.  For his courage, Stanislav Petrov was retired early with a $200 per month pension. After the incident was declassified, Petrov won a $1000 award from the Association of World Citizens.

    Director Grünberg has been filming in High Def using the Sony HDW-F900, a camera with an MSRP of $100,000 that can be picked up for a mere $40,000 on the street. Recently Canon announced the EOS 5D Mark II at a MSRP of under $2800.  Vincent LaForet demonstrates why this is a revolutionary camera.
