Fascinating movie spans the globe to reveal recent discoveries about water, the most amazing yet least studied substance in the world. Witness as researchers, scientists, philosophers and theologians try to understand this unique liquid and all its miraculous properties still waiting to be discovered. It was there that Heisenberg and Bohr came to Einstein to tell him it looked like the minds of the researchers were affecting the results of the experiments. Mind was inexorably linked to matter. Einstein later said, “Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.” In this amazing film, Water, the Great Mystery, we can see that science has made a quantum leap into understanding how mind can be recorded by the most simple element in nature (water) and on the periodic table: H20. If water has memory, and its main component being hydrogen, then the whole universe would have memory. Hydrogen was born between 100 and 1,000 seconds after the big bang. It makes up 75% of the known mass of the universe and now is part of the missing mass equation. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmLgbMQE1Qc Share this:FacebookLinkedInTwitterGoogleTumblrPinterestReddit (more…)

By Bloomberg News – May 12, 2011 China may limit interest-rate increases over the rest of the year, focusing on other tools for combating inflation as the government seeks to cool prices without choking off growth. The central bank yesterday raised banks’ reserve requirements for the fifth time this year. The half-point increase takes effect May 18 and will boost levels for the nation’s biggest lenders to a record 21 percent. Policy makers will raise borrowing costs only once more this year, after four increases in the past seven months, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Deutsche Bank AG predicted yesterday. Higher interest rates may damp growth while also attracting speculative capital, or “hot money,” to the fastest-growing major economy. Alternative tools include quicker gains in the yuan, as sought by the U.S. “The room for further rate hikes is quite small this year on concerns of hot money and economic growth,” said Lu Ting, a Hong Kong-based economist for Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “We surely expect more reserve requirement ratio hikes.” Goldman analysts said officials may allow the yuan to keep climbing against the dollar at a 6 percent annual pace. The central bank raised reserve requirements a day after reports showed inflation and lending exceeded economists’ estimates in April, with consumer prices rising more than 5 percent. The same batch of data showed industrial output growth slowed, suggesting that the nation’s expansion may be cooling from a 9.7 percent annual pace in the first quarter. Commodities Slide Stocks and commodities fell after the central bank announcement on speculation that slower growth will curb demand for raw materials. At Deutsche, Hong Kong-based economist Ma Jun said calls from within the government to avoid policy “over- tightening” may influence interest-rate decisions. Accelerated gains in the yuan saw the currency break 6.5 per dollar for the first time since 1993 on April 29. U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner pushed at talks in Washington this week for a faster appreciation that he says would boost consumption in China, ease inflation and limit global economic imbalances. Alongside monetary tools, the government has used administrative measures. This month, the National Development and Reform Commission said Unilever, the world’s second-largest consumer-goods maker, will be fined $300,000 for telling the media that it planned to raise prices, reportedly triggering panic buying and hoarding. O’Neill’s Prediction Jim O’Neill, who chairs Goldman Sachs Asset Management and coined the acronym BRIC for the economies of Brazil, Russia, India and (more…)

The National Inflation Association (NIA) is getting ready to release its latest feature documentary ‘College Conspiracy’. NIA intends to release the movie 5 days from now on Sunday, May 15th. ‘College Conspiracy’ will be the most comprehensive documentary ever produced that exposes the facts and truth about U.S. college education, which NIA considers to be the largest scam in American history. Despite college tuition inflation being the most consistent form of price inflation over the past decade, 70.1% of high school graduates are currently enrolling into college, a new record. The value of a college degree is declining even faster than tuitions are skyrocketing in price, but students are being brainwashed by the college-industrial complex, which is working in cahoots with the mainstream media and U.S. government to turn students into indentured servants for life. Back in 1960, only 45.1% of American high school students enrolled into college.However, during the following 8 year period from 1960 to 1968, the number of high school graduates enrolling into college increased by 90.5%. America’s college enrollment rate broke 50% for the first time in 1965 and reached a high in 1968 of 55.4%. Most people don’t realize what caused the majority of Americans to begin enrolling into college. The initial dramatic increase was caused almost entirely by the Vietnam War. Attending college was a valid exemption to avoid the draft for the Vietnam War. With millions of Americans not wanting to risk their lives by fighting in a war, attending college was an easy way to get out of the draft. The draft was used as a powerful persuasive device to convince Americans to attend college. After the college enrollment rate reached a peak in 1968 of 55.4%, as the draft came to an end, it dropped over the next 6 years to a low in 1974 of 47.5%. 11 years later in 1985, the college enrollment rate reached a new record high of 57.7%. Since then, the college enrollment rate has increased steadily to its current record level of 70.1%. ‘College Conspiracy’ will expose why college enrollment rates have risen to artificially high levels and why a major collapse in college enrollments is imminent, and how this will destroy the lives of millions of Americans. If you believe college is such a great thing for our nation, with enrollments at a record high of 70.1%, you really need to ask yourself how (more…)

Published on Truthout (http://www.truth-out.org) By Mathieu Created 2011-05-05 07:33 Thursday 5 May 2011 by: Haiti Grassroots Watch, [3] Last Spring, the agribusiness Monsanto announced it was making a $4 million gift of seeds “to support the reconstruction effort” in Haiti. The “gift” – reportedly hybrid maize and vegetable seeds – was slated to total 505 tons of seed over 12 months. Six months after the alleged distribution of the first delivery of Monsanto seeds. Haiti Grassroots Watch decided to follow up on the controversial donation, especially of the maize hybrid seed. •    Why were the seeds accepted by government officials? •    Where were the seeds distributed? •    Did the farmers – who were slated to receive the seed for only 10 percent of the real cost – like the seed? Did they understand what “hybrid” means as far as using the seed’s “offspring”? •    Were and are proper precautions being taken regarding the seeds, which are coated with potentially poisonous fungicides and pesticides? •    Will the rest of the “gift” be distributed, or has it been already? •    Does it appear likely that Haitian farmers could become dependent on highly subsidized Monsanto or other hybrid seeds, only to be slammed the full price in a few years, the way US homebuyers were hit with “exploding mortgages?” Part 1 – Background to the “Gift” The first shipment – 60 tons of seed – arrived in early May, and according to Monsanto, a second shipment of 70 tons was to have arrived sometime shortly thereafter. Not surprisingly, the “gift” caused controversy in Haiti and abroad due to Monsanto’s history. Monsanto is the world’s largest seed company and is one of the world’s largest pesticide companies. The behemoth dominates world proprietary seed market, a market worth almost $32 billion in 2010 [4], up 10 percent from the previous year. The agribusiness giant is renowned for its aggressive marketing [5] and sometimes-illegal maneuvers, which include creating a potential worldwide monopoly [6] by buying up all competitors, bribes, infiltration of farmers’ associations through the use of mercenaries [7] and “ruthless legal battles” [8] including lawsuits against farmers [9]. The company is currently being investigated in seven US states for potentially locking out competitors. The former manufacturer of Agent Orange is also the world’s leading producer of genetically modified organisms or “GMOs.” Because of its aggressive marketing of GMO seeds and other products, Monsanto has earned (more…)

Default Is Absolutely Impossible While The Dollar Is The Global Currency STRATFOR | Apr. 28, 2011, 11:39 AM Read more: http://www.stratfor.com/node/192872/analysis/20110427-portfolio-risk-us-debt-default#ixzz1L7Gk78aX [Editor’s Note: The original article is formated with the video at the end.] The truth about the Chinese Yuan! This video is unlisted. Only those with the link can see it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=LQSaXwdma3M Vice President of Analysis Peter Zeihan explains how the U.S. dollar’s position as the global reserve currency makes default impossible and why the euro and yuan cannot currently assume the role.   Ultimately a credit ratings agency’s assessments of a country are based in how sustainable the country’s budgeting processes are. Now the United States — it’s not that great; between the Bush administration and the current Obama administration, American finances are certainly on an unsustainable course. Tax revenues are relatively high right now, but with the baby boomers about to retire, they’ll be taking their tax income with them. Spending is high and is showing few signs of being brought under control either by this administration or by Congress. There aren’t a lot of options for rationalizing the budget: You could drastically increase the retirement age; you could do away with some sort of social benefits, such as social security; you could sharply raise taxes. All of these are political non-starters; they’re all political suicide. So by the books, yes, the United States deserves a downgrade — maybe more than one. But ultimately that’s irrelevant. In the case of United States, default is absolutely impossible. All U.S. government debt is denominated in U.S. dollar assets. The U.S. dollar is the global currency. The U.S. Federal Reserve controls U.S. dollar policy. So long as this is the case, it’s absolutely impossible to default on the debt. Luckily for the Americans, there is absolutely no currency out there that is within a generation of replacing the United States dollar as the global currency. Let’s examine why that is the case. First, let’s look at the euro. The euro is certainly the currency that is the closest to displacing the U.S. dollar as the global currency. But if you look at the events of the last couple of years, you’ll notice that the Europeans have been in a nonstop financial crisis, honestly, since before the global recession even began back in mid-2008. Nearly all of the Continent’s banks are not only unstable but they’ve now become interlinked to the currency and (more…)

Denis D. Gray, Associated Press Sunday, May 1, 2011 Read more: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/04/30/BUD41J0QK0.DTL&ao=all#ixzz1L7BxdRL4 (05-01) 04:00 PDT Bahir Jonai, India — The wall of water raced through narrow Himalayan gorges in northeast India, gathering speed as it raked the banks of towering trees and boulders. When the torrent struck their island in the Brahmaputra river, the villagers remember, it took only moments to obliterate their houses, possessions and livestock. No one knows exactly how the disaster happened, but everyone knows whom to blame: neighboring China. “We don’t trust the Chinese,” says fisherman Akshay Sarkar at the resettlement site where he has lived since the 2000 flood. “They gave us no warning. They may do it again.” About 500 miles east, in northern Thailand, Chamlong Saengphet stands in the Mekong river, in water that comes only up to her shins. She is collecting edible river weeds from dwindling beds. A neighbor has hung up his fishing nets, his catches now too meager. Using words bordering on curses, they point upstream, toward China. The blame game, voiced in vulnerable river towns and Asian capitals from Pakistan to Vietnam, is rooted in fear that China’s accelerating program of damming every major river flowing from the Tibetan plateau will cause natural disasters, degrade fragile ecologies and divert vital water supplies. A few analysts and environmental advocates even speak of water as a future trigger for war or diplomatic strong-arming, though others doubt it will come to that. Still, the remapping of the water flow in the world’s most heavily populated and thirstiest region is happening on a gigantic scale, with potentially strategic implications. On the eight great Tibetan rivers alone, almost 20 dams have been built or are under construction while some 40 more are planned or proposed. China is hardly alone in disrupting the region’s water flows. Others are doing it with potentially even worse consequences. But China’s vast thirst for power and water, its control over the sources of the rivers and its ever-growing political clout make it a singular target of criticism and suspicion. “Whether China intends to use water as a political weapon or not, it is acquiring the capability to turn off the tap if it wants to – a leverage it can use to keep any riparian neighbors on good behavior,” says Brahma Chellaney, an analyst at New Delhi’s Center for Policy Research and author of the forthcoming “Water: Asia’s New (more…)
