Editors Corner

Community. . . .together we are stronger. Together we are safer. Together we thrive. writes itself. Our job is to find the common thread of the articles, videos, letters, news reports and other contributions that arrive in our inbox. The theme this week is loud and clear. Yes, your inner life is an alone journey. Community is a choice to connect for the common good. In this issue you will read about many very good reasons to choose to get acquainted with your neighbors and work together to deal with the challenges of our changing world.

Change is indeed in the air. Severe weather has become the norm all over the world. The Halloween snow storm on the East Coast of the US is one recent example. I am told that this is the first time it has snowed before the end of October since the Civil War. Greenhouse gases are being termed “steroids” for stormy weather. The extreme drought in Texas has convinced Texas scientist that global warming is real. Watch the video Click here.

We are publishing a story this week about the recent rash of burglaries in the rural Yelm area. We have been receiving emails about burglaries for weeks now, but resisted the story because we don’t like to incite fear and the resulting manifestations of more fearful events. We are, however, offering this story to keep you informed. A good friend of mine says,” If you are prepared, there is no reason to be afraid”. We encourage you to create community to watch out for each other and your properties. With a large population unable to find work to support their family, people become desperate and resort to behaviors that they would not normally even consider. So, as times become even more financially distressed, it is a good idea to be prepared to protect your community, your neighborhood and your family. Click here

One man that has truly used his life to make a difference in his community is Bunker Roy. This is truly a beautiful, story of an amazing man who made an uncommon life choice. A man of privilege who chose to devote his life to raising whole communities out of poverty. Paraphrasing his words, “Don’t listen to the World Bank.” “Listen to the wisdom of the people on the ground in the village community.” This is a story of hope and how one man is changing the world. I could listen to this man all day. He personifies love and genius—powerful content of character. Click here

In the RSE community, generosity is overflowing. Project Food is being launched with the mission of making sure that families with children will have a minimum of two years of food storage. Please read about Project Food and how you can contribute and participate. Click here

Another example of humble genius is in our article of the week entitled Humanure. Reader, Linda Potter, sent in this article to expand even more on a previous article by Teri Simpson dealing with human waste. Thanks, Linda. Click here

Speaking of change—don’t for get to change your clock if you live in a time zone that participates in daylight savings time. We “fall back” one hour Saturday night.

This week we are introducing a column devoted to all things “Occupy”. We would love to receive photos, videos, articles, etc about the Occupy movement in your corner of the world. The US press is inadequate to provide meaningful information from other countries. Tell us your 99% story. Click here

With change all around us it is nice to have a few things that are constant. A great example is our continued support and friendship from Steve Klein. Although Steve is not publishing Kleiner’s Korner, he continues to pass along content to us to share with you. Thanks, Steve. Lastly, thank you for reading Masters Ben has been diligently working to make sure that your newsletter arrives in an easily readable format that fits your computer screen. If you have problems—tell us. That is the only way we will know.

Thank you for your contributions to efforts to bring this world-wide community of masters together. Have a great week. You are loved and appreciated.

Article of the Week
By Linda Potter - An MC2020 Reader

After hearing an Earth Changes teaching from Ramtha in April 2007, my husband and I took it to heart and decided that we were going to move from the UK to higher, drier ground in rural Spain. I started reading everything I could about off-grid, off-the-beaten-track living. One of the things we knew we wanted to do was to save and recycle water and another thing was grow stuff. I came across information on EMs, effective microorganisms, which are microorganisms which are beneficial to the soil and plant growth. There were stories of pieces of land that were toxic from spilt diesel drums and other rubbish, transformed with any evidence of diesel gone through treatment of the earth with EMs. These effective microorganisms are present all over on forest floors and in healthy composting systems . How wonderful nature is that it can clean up our nastiest messes ! So I asked myself, if toxic land can regenerate itself given time and the right environmental conditions, then certainly it must be possible to safely compost your own poo. With this, the search for information began.

As with any search on the internet, my favourite library, it was fraught with contradictions. The first information I came across was telling me how dangerous it was to compost manure from humans. I took the warnings to heart, but undaunted, I continued looking. Surely there must be a safe way to compost human waste ! Finally I found the wonderful Joseph Jenkins. His book, The Humanure Handbook, is online for free for anyone to read on – what a wonderful gift to humanity ! If you are interested please read his book. He is a very humorous writer – it is a good read believe it or not !! We started reading the online, free version, but soon bought a printed copy because we liked the book so much and wanted to support the author.

Neighborhood Crime Watch
A Part of Neighborhood Communications
By Teri Simpson, Optimum Preparedness


I just got a call this morning about ANOTHER robbery that happened yesterday, again during the day. This robbery yesterday (Thursday Nov 3rd) took place off Bald Hill Rd in the vicinity of the Fire Station at Piessner Rd. In this last case, the property was gated and locked. After ascertaining that no one was home, the thieves used bolt cutters to remove the lock so they could drive in. They also had the tools to disconnect the propane generator from the big tank and a vehicle big enough to steal the big generator.

During the last month, Elbow Lake Road got hit 6 times in 10 days. The last robbery there, the thieves cleaned the people out. Harts Lake Road has reported many robberies as well many other rural areas.

I have written several articles about neighborhood communications coming from the position of being a more cohesive group if power and communications go down in the event of an emergency or disaster. But with this rash of robberies going on in the Yelm/Rainier/McKenna areas, it is more important than ever that everyone gets to know their neighbors and actually take some actions.

 It sounds like the same set or group of thieves, because they keep using the same method. They pick a dead end road so there is no through traffic. They hit in the day time, usually in the afternoon. They case a road before hitting the houses on it. Most of the houses hit have no gates. Most people have described one man and one woman, or two men and one woman observed in suspicious behavior. If questioned, they are "looking for a lost dog", "looking for a lost horse" (were they high? a lost horse?), "looking for the person selling a meat grinder".

Secrets of the 100-yr-old Marathoner

The secret to a long and healthy life is to be stress-free. Be grateful for everything you have, stay away from people who are negative, stay smiling and keep running.

- Fauja Singh, 100-yr-old Marathoner -

Most people hang up their boots as they get older, but Fauja Singh only began running in his eighties. At the age of 94, he ran a full marathon in less than 5 hours, but on 16 Oct 2011, at the age of 100, he still has it in him. Singh did what no other person has done: he became the oldest person and the first centenarian to finish a marathon. Along the way, he's received sponsorship deals, but he donates it all. "I'm not really interested in all the rupees, I give it to charity," he says of his sponsorship deal. "Money can be saved and spent and lost and made. At my age it's nice just to do this. . Look how blessed I am. What's not to be happy about ? “

Occupy Wall Street with your Junk Mail

The Other Occupation: How Wall Street Occupies Washington

As ThinkProgress has previously noted, the 99 Percent Movement has been set off thanks to long-standing economic inequities and and a recession caused primarily by Wall Street’s misdeeds.

Wall Street did not engage in reckless financial behavior — which plunged 64 million people worldwide into extreme poverty — in a vacuum.

Occupy Wall Street explained by Leony Snicket

Thirteen Observations made by Lemony Snicket while watching Occupy Wall Street from a Discreet Distance 

1. If you work hard, and become successful, it does not necessarily mean you are successful because you worked hard, just as if you are tall with long hair it doesn’t mean you would be a midget if you were bald.

2. “Fortune” is a word for having a lot of money and for having a lot of luck, but that does not mean the word has two definitions.

On The Lighter Side

Which is the guitly dog?...

Beautiful Birds you will Seldom See
Project Food

The concept of seeing that each family with children at RSE  have at least 2 years food storage for the future came out of the awareness that while many did not have access to UGs, they did not have the minimum requirement of at least two years food storage either.

Ramtha said recently that we should " give, give, give." Project Food is an ideal opportunity to give. Many of us have been blessed in creating abundance, however, many of our fellow RSE students are not blessed with the abundance of food needed to be preserved for the future. Project Food, through the collective efforts of all of us, can make a difference and in gathering food to feed RSE families with children.  Our teacher has told us that the children must be preserved for the future. Each family with children up to  age 18 will be given food so that they can meet their two year storage supply minimum.  The amount given will be based on what they currently have, so that the minimum supply of two years food for the future can be met.

Making a Difference

In Rajasthan, India, an extraordinary school teaches rural women and men — many of them illiterate — to become solar engineers, artisans, dentists and doctors in their own villages. It’s called the Barefoot College, and its founder, Bunker Roy, explains how it works.

Bunker Roy: Learning from a barefoot movement

A few years ago I found out about a visionary of love with a huge heart…. Bunker Roy. He has been one of my favorite people making a difference in the lives of so many of the poorest in the world.

But in reality he is also making a difference in the lives of everyone that is touched by his life path.

Your DNA may carry a ‘memory’ of your living conditions in childhood

Family living conditions in childhood are associated with significant effects in DNA that persist well into middle age, according to new research by Canadian and British scientists.

The team, based at McGill University in Montreal, University of British Columbia in Vancouver and the UCL Institute of Child Health in London looked for gene methylation associated with social and economic factors in early life. They found clear differences in gene methylation between those brought up in families with very high and very low standards of living. More than twice as many methylation differences were associated with the combined effect of the wealth, housing conditions and occupation of parents (that is, early upbringing) than were associated with the current socio-economic circumstances in adulthood. (1252 differences as opposed to 545).

You Decide

Want to live forever?
How about just an extra thousand years or so?

Ian Pearson, a British futurist, says death will be a thing of the past within a few short decades.

Pearson is one of many futurists, cybernetic experts, and artificial intelligence researchers whose thoughts are converging on the same basic idea: Why not upload everything that's in the brain—everything that makes a person who they are—into a computer and then download it again into a new body? Doing such a thing would make the individual theoretically immortal.

Part of sun turns into stormy 'benevolent monster'

After years of quiet, the sun is coming alive with solar storms in a big way. The sun shot off a flare Thursday afternoon from a region that scientists are calling a "benevolent monster." Scientists at the federal Space Weather Prediction Center say that area is the most active part of the sun since 2005. It has dozens of sunspots, including one that is the size of 17 Earths. Sunspots are kinks or knots in the sun's magnetic field. "It's beautiful," said forecaster Jess Whittington. "It's still growing. The size is what blows me away."

Huge Sunspot
One of the biggest sunspot groups in many years has just emerged over the sun's eastern limb.  The sunspot's magnetic canopy is crackling with M-class (medium-sized) solar flares and seems poised to launch even stronger X-class eruptions. The sunspot, named AR1339, is not yet directly facing Earth but it will be turning toward our planet in the days ahead. Check for images of the behemoth and updates.

Family holding LambsNo groceries for a year: How one family saved money, lost weight, and lived well

“A spider bit the goat, so we didn’t have dairy for a month,” says Rachel Hoff describing one of the misadventures that occurred during her family’s year without groceries. As for bread, she, her husband Tom Ferguson, and teenage son, Tom, Jr., had to do without when the both the oven and the bread machine went kaput in the same week. Despite occasional mishaps and deprivations, Hoff describes the experience, which she documented in her blog A year without groceries, as “surprisingly easy.” And, as of October 1st, the family is sticking with the challenge for another year.

Focus on Spelling

What happens when you combine conventional subjects like spelling with unconventional teaching techniques that employ focus and visualization? Jonathan Wood’s class of eight to ten year olds found out last week during a spelling focus card game. "Over the years, I have found that students learn to spell words much better when they can visualize the words in their minds,” Wood explains. “So I have developed several games and activities that require students to literally see their words spelled in their frontal lobes.”

On Monday, the students took a spelling pretest with twelve words on it. At the end of the week, they were retested on words they’d gotten wrong. In preparation for the second test, Wood had the students create spelling index cards. They concentrated on the words on their cards, then, closed their eyes to verify they could vividly visualize each word. Then, they were partnered up and one of the pair was blindfolded. “They asked the blindfolded partners to pick a certain word,” says Wood. “The ones who couldn’t see had to remote view and pick the correct card. Correct or not, they then had to spell the word they chose.”
