Editors Corner

I get so excited when I read or watch some of the amazing articles we collect for the Newsletter.  This week I am inspired and impressed by the works of two women. First, is Susan Setteducato, one of our fellow RSE students.  She sent us an essay she wrote entitled “Defiance”.  Her words give voice to so much of what I have been feeling for some time.  I hope you will read and re-read it.  Congrats to Susan for a masterful expression of truth and thank you for sharing it with MC2020 readers. Click here

Next, I urge you to watch an extraordinary presentation by Pam Warhurst, a spunky, straight-talking woman with a fiery form of defiance towards bureaucracy.  She is not wearing a cape, but she is an action heroine, in my opinion.  She is creative, focused and fearlessly takes action for the greater good of her community.  She is a testament to how one person can make a difference in the world.  Watch and listen to her.  You will be inspired. Click here

Prominent among featured topics this week are two videos and one article about the Maasai .  The African Maasai tribe is of particular interest to us because of a relationship with the Maasai that has been established by five extraordinary women from our school.  Rebecca Capezio reported about their experience with the Maasai in our June 23rd, 2012 issue.  Click here This week we are celebrating with them the success of Olympic gold medal winner, David Rushida. Click here  Also, you will hold your breath as you watch the Maasai sneak up on a Rhinoceros. Click here  Thirdly, read about the plight of the Maasai who are in danger of losing their hunting grounds to rich mid-eastern kings. Click here

On the “Lighter Side”, you won’t believe the “cat burglar” that goes out every night stealing from the neighbors. Click here

Another thing you might not believe is that in Romania there are actually rocks that grow.
I can’t explain it, you just have to see the pictures and read all about them.  Apparently, the people of Romania have known about them for a very long time.  Have you ever heard about growing rocks before?

Now for a dish of truth telling in politics. . . Senator Bernie Sanders, independent from Vermont, tells it like it is! Click here   Foster Gamble, producer of the movie Thrive, offers some interesting information about US cities that are filing bankruptcy.  Are they really broke?  Or is this a way to raid their assets?
Watch his story and see for yourself. Click here

The article about the Pentagon’s Advance Research Projects sound like science fiction—but I am certain it is not. Click here

Ever dream of flying?  David Copperfield, magician or wizard? You decide. Click here

In Food Watch this week there is very important information about Genetically Modified Foods. This is a very clear warning and identifies GMO’s that we should be careful to avoid.  Further, Jeff Smith prescribes what we can do to bring pressure for changes on the scale that Great Britain and Europe were able to bring about. Click here

I will end this week with an acknowledgement to another RSE student, Carlos Tavares, for his work entitled “Initiation of Self Empowerment”.  Carlos poses some important questions for each of us as we take personal inventory and evaluate our personal preparedness for dimensional changes coming our way.  Thank you, Carlos, for sharing your thoughts with us. Click here

As summer ripens here in Yelm, the days are getting shorter.  Blackberries will soon be ready.  Our latest mini-heatwave is making the tomatoes blush.  Wherever you are in the world, whatever your season, may you be bountifully blessed until we meet again.

As a reader and admirer of Howard Zinn, I was thrilled to see his quote in your newsletter. I also wanted to share with you something of my own on the subject of defiance. I'm writing a novel and defiance is the theme. This is an essay from my website (coming soon). I also want to take the opportunity to thank you both for your amazing work. Best, Susan

The first thing that struck me about Cassie McCool after she punched her way into my consciousness was her capacity to love. The second was her attitude of defiance. You might find these two attributes incongruous, but I don’t think you can have one without the other.

Webster defines the word ‘defiance’ as the ‘disposition to resist’, the ‘willingness to fight’. Well, if you ask me, such will and disposition have to be born out of great passion. Maybe for something a person would even die for.

Initiation of Self Empowerment
Submitted by Carlos Tavares, Zambia, Africa

Are you ready for the new world, a completely new reality?
Are you ready to take responsibility for all of your reality?
To always create your reality through focused intent.

Do you still give your power away to others and push the blame?
Or do your want GOD or some higher power or ET to save you?
Maybe the initiation into the Golden Age is simply to start to self-empower yourself.
Do you love yourself? If not why do you want others to love you if you yourself don't.
Do you prepare for likely probabilities for yourself? If not why do you want others to do it for you if you yourself don't.
Do you protect yourself? If not why do you want others to protect you if you yourself don't.

The Maasai

David Rudisha: Maasai Warrior, Olympic Champion

Brave! African Maasai tribe test their bravery on back of a black rhinoceros - BBC wildlife

Stop the Serengeti Sell-off
Dear friends,
At any moment, a big-game hunting corporation could sign a deal which would force up to 48,000 members of Africa's famous Maasai tribe from their land to make way for wealthy Middle Eastern kings and princes to hunt lions and leopards. Experts say the Tanzanian President's approval of the deal may be imminent, but if we act now, we can stop this sell-off of the Serengeti.
The last time this same corporation pushed the Maasai off their land to make way for rich hunters, people were beaten by the police, their homes were burnt to a cinder and their livestock died of starvation. But when a press controversy followed, Tanzanian President Kikwete reversed course and returned the Maasai to their land. This time, there hasn't been a big press controversy yet, but we can change that and force Kikwete to stop the deal if we join our voices now.

Our Amazing Planet

Growing Stones An Incredible Geological Phenomena
Earth is an amazing planet and our nature is full of wonders. We have previously written about incredible singing plants. This time we would like to focus our readers' attention on another amazing geological phenomena, namely so-called growing stones. It is difficult to image that stones can really grow, but these stones seem to be alive! The Romanian Trovants Museum Natural Reserve is located in Valcea County, close to the road connecting Ramnicu Valcea and Targu Jiu, 8 km far from Horezu. Here in a small village named Costesti, there are some fascinating and mysterious stones, called trovants, which are believed to have a life in them. Trovant is a geological term used often in Romania. It means cemented sand.

Universal soldier: Pentagon eyes limb-regenerating super-troopers?
The US military’s future technology division is reportedly eyeing tampering with soldiers’ genes, allowing them to go for days without food or sleep and re-grow limbs lost in battle or due to landmines. Scientists at the Pentagon's high-tech Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency hope to find a way to affect certain genes to make the human body do amazing things, like using body fat more efficiently, says British newspaper Sunday Express. The journalists talked to novelist Simon Conway, who was given a behind-the-scenes glimpse of DARPA’s research, which may seem like it comes straight out of a science fiction novel.

'Weirdest thing' floats in South Pacific
Pumice, the lightweight stone used to smooth skin, is usually found in beauty salons, but on Thursday sailors from the Royal New Zealand Navy found nearly 10,000 square miles of the lava rock bobbing on the surface of the South Pacific Ocean. By comparison, the state of Rhode Island comprises approximately 1,200 square miles. Described by one sailor who witnessed it as "the weirdest thing I've seen in 18 years at sea," the sea of white rock was initially spotted by air and then relayed to a ship for further investigation, according to a statement released by the Royal New Zealand Navy.

Jeff Smith -- The effects of genetically modified foods
70% of the processed foods we're already eating have genetically modified organisms. How have we allowed this to happen? How can you know whether you're eating a genetically modified food? The politics of food reach far and deep.

August 30th: Mindfulness...

Are We Steering - Or Being Steered?
By Zen Gardner

Weird how the mind works. Thinking, conscious and subconscious, can and will drive us any way we allow it. We think we're freely steering this thing called our body and mind and so often we are just being led from one unimportant event to another.

And have no flipping idea why or how.

Think about it. Have you been in control of your thoughts and actions all of your life? I haven’t.

On The Lighter Side

Weather Watch

Chemtrail Whistleblower Allan Buckmann: Some Thoughts on Weather Modification
I am a trained U.S. Air Force weather observer who worked in the military as an observer from 1960?1964, serving mainly at Beale AFB, with a 3-month assignment at the Pacific Missile Range at Point Hueneme, Oxnard, California, working with NASA, RCA, and the U.S. Navy on the Tiros III weather satellite readout team. I am familiar with cloud observation, jet contrails, the military, and space-based weather information systems. Contrails are by definition ‘condensation trails’ left by hot jet exhaust melting ice crystals which rapidly cool and refreeze and disappear. They do not stay in the sky and create clouds. A contrail is usually of low volume and extends some 2?20 times the length of the aircraft. Exceptions occurred during WW II from large deployments of combustion engine bombers, but did not generally extend into the jet age.

Something Worth Knowing

Taxpayers strike it rich? - Foster Gamble


Understanding the National Debt
In science and engineering, the use of Scientific Notation is used to handle large numbers. This is interesting because it does the same thing where it can be understood by those of us who are mathematically challenged.

* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
* New debt: $1,650,000,000,000
* National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $38,500,000,000

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:
* Annual family income: $21,700
* Money the family spent: $38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
* Total budget cuts: $385
