Watching central banks' actions (not their words) gives pretty good

will print billions (soon to be trillions) of dollars or euros or
pounds to make sure no major banks fail. So don't be too concerned

Nafeez Ahmed is an excellent writer - his book "The War on Truth" is one of the very few books of 9/11 that I consider worth reading.
the others I'd put on that short list (of recommended books about 9/11) are Mike Ruppert's Crossing the Rubicon, Paul Thompson's The Terror Timeline and Sander Hicks' The Big Wedding. I just got a copy of Peter Dale Scott's The Road to 9/11 and the parts I've read so far are excellent.

Brasscheck TV: Popular "green" light bulb is highly toxic
This has got to be one of the most amazing scams of the new century.
A "green" energy-saving light bulb that is so full of toxic mercury, you're advised
to leave your home if it ever breaks! But it gets better.
Come 2012, you will required BY LAW to use light bulbs of this type.
To put the cherry on top, there's only one place in the world that manufactures
them: China. I couldn't make this up if I tried.

Community Empowerment Convergence "The Big ONE" 2008 A Grand Collaboration
A village of engagement for healthy body, home, family and community
June 21& 22, 9am-7pm Sharon Meadow, Golden Gate Park
The Big ONE 2008, is a free two-day community building event, the first annual gathering of its kind in the Bay Area. This convergence is intended to develop new relationships through dialogue, committed engagement, and trust. We desire to collectively re-envision our communities. We want to develop sustainability awareness and action, civic engagement, and localization of culture, economy, and decision-making. We promote respect for all life and the planet that sustains us
The convergence will be located in Golden Gate Park in Sharon Meadow, June 21 and 22, 2008. Ten neighborhood tents will make up the village. Each neighborhood will represent a community need, addressing such issues as Youth Engagement and Empowerment, Social Justice, Global Warming, Green Jobs , Greening the City and Schoolyards, Civic Engagement, Story Telling from our Elders, Sustainable Community (food, water and sewage security), Permaculture, World Peace, Health, Alternative Medicine, Education, Music, Dance and Art, GLBTQ, Race & Culture, Spirituality, and Community Communication.
The "Village of Engagement" is a gathering of people from Bay Area Non-Profit Organizations, Foundations, members of the Community, Schools, Worker-Owned Coops, Entrepreneurs and representatives from our respective Bay Area City Governments. Participants will have the opportunity to design, envision, collaborate, and dialog with new friends on the future of their own neighborhoods.
To prepare for the challenging times ahead of us, we encourage you to come, be heard, and engage. The format of your participation can be setting up a table or tent in one of the neighborhoods to collaborate and share information, interactive classes, power-point presentations, hands-on demonstrations of sustainable skills, forums or artistic endeavors. We provide the fill it with your dreams. We are using the Wiser Earth platform to organize, plan and co-create the event at
This is a 100% noncommercial event. Nothing will be for sale. We encourage everyone to bring food and drink and extra to share with your new friends! Come experience and participate. "The New Me is We".

The Political Mind: Why You Can't Understand 21st Century American Politics with an 18th Century Brain
Tuesday, June 24, 6:00 PM Mechanics' Institute 57 Post St SF
Linguist George Lakoff discusses language, politics, the human brain and how all three connect in his fascinating study of modern politics. Effective story-telling, according to Lakoff, touches an emotional chord in humans that is far more effective than the dry and logical discussion of issues. Any political movement that hopes to succeed must approach voters using a language that engages listeners on that emotional level. The impact will be seen in this upcoming election! reservations call 415-393-0100 or email at rsvp [at]
