Monday, August 28, 2006 "first great gift, the first radical expression of His powerful love, an ordered, precious cosmos, capable of sustaining the mysterious, fragile reality of life”. Benedict XVI took his cue from the same Biblical admonitions last June to warn of “nature’s wailing”, caused by the “many ways in which the Earth is abused”.

Supercavitation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "A cavitation forms behind an object passed by a rapidly streaming liquid
A cavitation forms behind an object passed by a rapidly streaming liquid

In 1940 the German company Henschel developed the first projectile to use supercavitation: the Henschel Hs 293 C. In 1977, Soviet engineers developed the VA-111 Shkval ('Squall') torpedo. This can travel at 230 mph (100 m/s) underwater, compared to the top speed of about 80 mph (35 m/s) for conventional aquatic craft, but it is reportedly not steerable. Even faster speeds of about 310 mph (ca. 140 m/s) and higher have also been rumored. News of the device reached the West in the 1990s.

The Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, Rhode Island, USA is now also working on the phenomenon."

Corriere della Sera - Gli hot-dog «mutano» il Dna?: "Gli hot-dog «mutano» il Dna?
Una ricerca americana suggerisce questa possibilità dopo lo studio su un batterio. Ora sperimentazioni sui topi per verificare

OMAHA (NEBRASKA) - Che gli hot-dog, i famosi panini coi wurstel non fossero proprio il cibo più saluare del monod era noto. Ma ora uno studio ventila l'ipotesi che possa favorire la formazione di tumori, modificano («mutando») il Dna.
La ricerca in questione è stata condotta da esperti dell'università del Nebraska, guidati da Sidney Mirvish, ed è stata pubblicata sulla rivista scientifica sul Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
Mirvish e i suoi collaboratori hanno puntato la loro attenzione sugli hot dog perchè precedenti studi avevano ipotizzato una loro correlazione con il tumore del colon.
Gli hot dog sono conservati attraverso l'uso di sali e nitrati, che, in certe condizioni, possono dar luogo alla formazione di un composto chiamato nitrosamina, ritenuto potenzialmente cancerogeno negli animali.
I ricercatori americani hanno esaminato estratti da diversi hot dog comprati in normali supermarket e hanno osservato che, quando mischiati con nitriti, davano luogo a composti capaci di indurre mutazioni nel Dna della Salmonella, un batterio, con una frequenza da due a qua"
Il possibile rischio, peraltro, non sarebbe limitato agli hot-dog, ma a diversi altri alimenti, come la salsa di soia, o pesci essicati e salati.

Shuman Resonance on the increase!! - "Now if the shuman resonance usually sits at around the delta, theta range. Which is, in humans, sleep. Now assuming the earth is connected, or rather we are connected to it. And assuming that the earth itself is a living organism. We can conclude that the earth was. Up until recently “asleep”. Now the shuman resonance is currently at about 13-14 hz. Which is in the alert category! Meaning the big fella is wide awake!! But why?? "

Ghosts created by low frequency sounds: "Research has previously proven that exposure to low frequency sound can cause a variety of physiological effects, many of them adverse ones, such as shivering, anxiety and breathlessness. These responses can lead a person to think that some unseen danger is imminent, or feel like he is being watched. Infrasound might even cause hallucinations. Tests at NASA have shown that the human eyeball has a resonant frequency of 18 cycles a second, and will vibrate in sympathy with infrasound waves that have a similar frequency. Under these conditions, there would be a 'smearing of vision' that is capable of making someone see evanescent hallucinations in the periphery of their visual field. This effect is reminiscent of the theories of neurologist Michael Persinger, who has suggested that electromagnetic waves can interfere with brain activity and lead people to think they see ghosts or aliens."

The Great Deception: the propaganda that we pay for (part 2) - Pravda.Ru: "For example, in December 1987 the United Nations General Assembly passed a very strong resolution against terrorism, condemning the plague in the strongest terms, calling on every state to fight against it in every possible way. When it came to vote, one country, Honduras, abstained and two voted against it: United States and Israel. Are you surprised?

This was because of the article 8 of the resolution that mentions the elimination of colonialism, racism, and alien domination and occupation. This should tell you a lot about why UN can not come-up with a definition of terrorism. Here is the text of the article 8.

Article 8 of the UN resolution against terrorism: 'Also urges all States, unilaterally and in co-operation with other States, as well as relevant United Nations organs, to contribute to the progressive elimination of the causes underlying international terrorism and to pay special attention to all situations, including colonialism, racism and situations involving mass and flagrant violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms and those involving alien domination and occupation, that may give rise to international terrorism and may endanger international peace and security.'"

The Great Deception: the propaganda that we pay for (part 1) - Pravda.Ru: "The war on terror is used like a beautiful magician's assistant, to distract the public while the magician does his tricks. As long as people are scared and busy with Osama Bin Laden, no one will be noticing the systematic erosion of their civil liberties, or the increasing inequality, or declining quality of their lives. Who cares if 37.0 million Americans live in poverty? Who cares if over 13 million families including 26.5 million children are living at the edge of the poverty (median income = $38000)? Who cares if the top 10% own 71.5% of everything in US ? As long as you are afraid of the evil 'terrorists' and are engaged in an unending war, you will not care."

GM grass takes a walk on the wild side - World - Times Online: "

GM grass takes a walk on the wild side
By Lewis Smith
An experimental plant, designed for golf courses, has been found three miles from its test site
A GENETICALLY modified grass designed to improve golf courses and lawns has caused alarm in the US after escaping into the wild.

Creeping bentgrass, Agrostis stolonifera, has spread up to three miles outside a test site in Oregon with nine different plants being identified.

It had been modified to make it impervious to the herbicide glysophate and was designed to appeal to golf course managers who would be able to spray large areas to kill off weeds without damaging the grass.

Homeowners were considered another lucrative market because it could help them to create perfect lawns in front of their houses.

The US Department of Agriculture has ordered a full environmental audit of its impact and spread to determine the threat to wildlife. Unlike GM crops such as maize and soybeans, which are annuals and unable to reproduce, the perennial grass was able to produce seeds during outdoor tests."
