Editors Corner

I want to start tonight with a request for your focused intent to help avert an environmental disaster off the coast of New Zealand. A cargo ship has run aground. It is loaded with containers and fuel. The hull is breaking apart. In your focus see the pristine shores of New Zealand with a barricade (could be a blue grid) protecting this beautiful beach, the sea creatures and clean waters. Mother Nature will be on our side.

If you are planning to attend the upcoming Feast with Ramtha and you want to dress for the occasion, stop in and see Giorda at Giorda E. She has an amazing elegant touch for bringing out the goddess in you.

Also worth mentioning are our friends at Yelm Farm and Pet Supply. I was in the store the other day and Tammy, the owner, told me she was bringing in a new line of eco pet dishes made from bamboo and rice husks. She is also testing kitty litter that is made from walnut shells. Next time you are in the store, tell her you appreciate her support of the Masters Connection.

In this week’s newsletter we have a variety of science videos and articles bringing scientific research to ideas that had been fantasy until now. But, isn’t that how all great new ideas begin? Be sure and watch the flowers bloom. Imagine the mind that created these gorgeous beings. Click here

Our article of the week is from “the Queen of Practical” as I like to call her, Teri Simpson. The “bucket bed” is indeed practical and the way Teri explains how and why to make it will make you smile. Click here

Our recipe of the week will separate the Aussie's from the crowd. We love our Christmas Cake and Plum Pudding. I am pleased we are doing our part to keep this tradition going. Click here

Be sure and scroll to the end to read about how our community came together to help young Japanese students enrolled in Phoenix Rising School. Then imagine the courage it takes for these children to come to school in a “foreign” language. Children are amazing. Remember when you were as fearless as a child? Click here

Let’s all create a great week til we meet again!

A 'Bedder' Solution
What to do with all those buckets in your UG
By Teri Simpson of Optimum Preparedness

I was speaking with someone last week about getting a Wiggy's sleeping bag for use in a shelter (i.e. underground). We were talking about cots versus beds and then the light bulb came on.

Rather than buy a cot, buy a piece of plywood and a piece of polar fleece. Here's the thing: if you put up a cot, then put something like a Therma-Rest Self Inflating Mattress on it (for some softness yes, but especially as a thermal barrier underneath you), you have just used up close to 21 square feet of floor space.

If you have a 7,000 square foot UG, that 21 sq ft of floor space is a no thing. But if you have something a bit more modestly sized, and have several people (all with 2 years of food in buckets and containers) that is some mighty valuable floor space being used only for your sleeping selves.

The solution? Why, a "Bucket Bed" of course! Basically, a Bucket Bed is 3' x 7' or 4' x 7' (or only 6' long if you aren't that tall). If you make a bed that is 3 buckets wide and 7 buckets long, stacked 2 buckets high, you have just made a home for 42 buckets. If you make a 4' wide by 7' long Bucket Bed, you make a home for 56 buckets. NOW we're getting double use out of that floor space.

You'll want to cut a piece of plywood to sit on top of the buckets, whether it is 3'x7' or 4'x7'. If you want to be snazzy about it, you can cut the plywood 3 ½" wider and longer than the bucket stack size, then screw a 1x2" board on the underside of the plywood "bed platform" all the way around so it can't move to the right or left or up or down. You don't really need to do this but you could. Nothing wrong with a little overkill :-D

Nanotube yarns twist like muscles

Yarns made of the tiny straws of carbon called nanotubes have an astounding ability to twist as they contract, scientists have found.

The effect, reported in Science, is similar to the action of muscles found in elephant trunks and squid tentacles.

However, the yarns twist 1,000 times as much as previous "artificial muscles".

The effect, which occurs thanks to a conducting fluid in which the yarns were dipped, could be put to use in motors much thinner than a human hair.

The team of researchers from Australia, the US, Canada and South Korea demonstrated motors that could spin at nearly 600 revolutions per minute, turning a weight 2,000 times heavier than the yarn itself.

Honey - A Cure for Stings

Hi there......As one who is highly allergic to stings, would like to share my miracle cure.....HONEY!  I used to have a kit which I never remembered to carry with me, so slapped some honey on a particularly bad attack and it was all gone in minutes.  Now I carry one of those little packets from restaurants wherever I go (and no, I'm not above taking one when needed!).  It doesn't matter what kind of honey - it works and quickly!

Cloaking Device 'Can Erase History' By Hiding Event In Time

Erasing History? Temporal Cloaks Adjust Light's Throttle to Hide an Event in Time

Researchers from Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., have demonstrated for the first time that it's possible to cloak a singular event in time, creating what has been described as a "history editor." In a feat of Einstein-inspired physics, Moti Fridman and his colleagues sent a beam of light traveling down an optical fiber and through a pair of so-called "time lenses." Between these two lenses, the researchers were able to briefly create a small bubble, or gap, in the flow of light. During that fleetingly brief moment, lasting only the tiniest fraction of a second, the gap functioned like a temporal hole, concealing the fact that a brief burst of light ever occurred. The team will present their findings at the Optical Society's (OSA) Annual Meeting, Frontiers in Optics (FiO) 2011 (, taking place in San Jose, Calif. next week.

Something Worth Knowing


If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result ...
all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it..

Dear Ben and Jan,

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank both of you for the wonderful job you are doing with Master's Comnnection 2020.
You are providing a remarkable service for masters in our school.

Some time ago I read a posting in your newsletter of someone who wanted to know more about what else masters do, (other than prepare) or possibly she meant how one might apply the teachings in their life. I do find articles such articles refreshing.

I would like to submit to you a body of art work most of which was directly inspired by the great work. I set out to be an artist to better know myself. When I met Ramtha, and after hearing only a few sentences from the old tape on The Brain, I immediately knew these teachings were that same journey, and I could use all the help I could get.

Phoenix Rising School

“I am 1,000 percent behind this school.” - Ramtha

Found in Translation: Interpreters Help Phoenix Rising Students Communicate

As anyone who has ever traveled to a foreign country knows, being surrounded by a language that you don’t understand can be a challenge. That was the situation facing ten year old Kiyoko and eleven year old Mona when they arrived from Japan in May, 2011. Despite a nearly total lack of English, the siblings enrolled at the Phoenix Rising School, where they have continued this year.

As a new school, PRS does not currently offer E.S.L. classes, and during the first week of school, Language Arts teacher Sophie Sykes became concerned that the pair were not getting the help they needed to make lessons comprehensible. She asked for assistance from members of the local Japanese community, and the response was instant. The next day, interpreters Tsukumi and Naoko began to take turns, spending hours at school helping the children understand what was being taught and how to complete assignments.

“I cannot say enough about the two volunteers who are giving up their time to really make school an incredible experience for Mona and Kiyoko,” says Sykes. “They’re invaluable. For Naoko, the decision to help was simple. “I knew them, so when I heard they needed help, I offered to come here,” she explains. The family comes from a town next to Naoko’s in Japan, but they had never met each other before moving to Washington. Now, she says, “They are my friends. I love to play with them.”

The interpreters’ presence has made a big difference in how the children experience school. “It’s gotten easier to communicate with friends,” says Kiyoko. Mona agrees. “It’s easier to understand.” This week, both wrote their first paper in English, explaining the meanings of their names and how they do (or don’t!) relate to their personalities. Sykes calls the experience “definitely a marker memorable moment.” After she told Mona that his paper was beautiful, “He turned to me and said ‘Thank you,’ and he bowed. It was fantastic,” she says.

“They could not have produced this paper without their translators,” says Sykes. “I have a very full schedule with seventeen other students They need someone with them. I could never have done this.” For Naoko, meanwhile, PRS is “so interesting. Every child is so beautiful,” she says. “I have never seen such good children, not only in Japan but other places.” Sykes is certain that with the ongoing support of their interpreters, the children will begin speaking English very soon.
