We are fed bollocks about cancer by the monied interests. Two out of the three legal treatments for cancer are themselves carcinogenic and kill 2/3 of patients who try them. Treatments that really work and heal people like herbs and natural foods are illegal for practitioners to practice. We MUST as a culture use our innate wisdom and acknowledge the body's brilliant self-healing design. Watch this video to gain understanding of how we got to the place of illness being a trillion dollar business and how to get back to the basics for self-healing. Self-healing is enjoyable and effective.

Aside from the sheep that freely roam the fjords and a few root vegetables, the Faroese have always relied on the surrounding sea as a source of fish, seabirds, and the pilot whales they slaughter in a hunt known as the grindadráp, or grind.
"Grind,” which rhymes with wind, is Faroese for pilot whale, and can refer to the event of the whale slaughter, the whale meat, or the whales themselves. Hunting whales for food is a tradition as old as the islands have been inhabited. But in the past few decades, animal activists have taken issue with the grind, despite Faroese insistence that it is sustainable and humane.
Motherboard visited the Faroe Islands to see a grind first hand as the Faroese defend their way of life against pressure from a visiting Sea Shepherd operation. Read more here: http://motherboard.vice.com/read/the-...

What species live in and around coral reefs?
"Hidden beneath the ocean waters, coral reefs teem with life. Fish, corals, lobsters, clams, seahorses, sponges, and sea turtles are only a few of the thousands of creatures that rely on reefs for their survival."
How do coral reefs protect lives and property?
"The coral reef structure buffers shorelines against waves, storms, and floods, helping to prevent loss of life, property damage, and erosion."
Importance of Coral Reefs
"Coral reefs are important for many reasons. Most importantly, they provide protection and shelter for many different species of fish."
From despair to repair: Dramatic decline of Caribbean coral can be reversed
"With only about one-sixth of the original coral cover left, most Caribbean coral reefs may disappear in the next 20 years, primarily due to the loss of grazers in the region, according to the latest report by the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)."
What are Coral Reefs
"Appearing as solitary forms in the fossil record more than 400 million years ago, corals are extremely ancient animals that evolved into modern reef-building forms over the last 25 million years."
Coral Reef Protection: What Are Coral Reefs?
"The mention of coral reefs generally brings to mind warm climates, colorful fishes and clear waters."
Caribbean coral reefs 'will be lost within 20 years' without protection
"Major report warns that loss of grazing fish due to pollution and overfishing is a key driver of region's coral decline."
To Save Coral Reefs, Start With Parrotfish
"Coral reefs are very complex ecosystems, but luckily managing them sustainably is not."
Coral Reef Destruction and Conservation
"Ten percent of the world's reefs have been completely destroyed. In the Philippines, where coral reef destruction is the worst, over 70% have been destroyed and only 5% can be said to be in good condition."
Coral Bleaching: What You Need to Know
"If coral bleaching isn't on your radar yet, it will be soon."
"Coral reefs are underwater structures made from calcium carbonate secreted by corals."More

In fact, they suggest just the opposite: The, at best, middling scores of American 15-year-olds not only challenge the notion of American "exceptionalism," they also threaten over time to erode the educational foundations of the world's largest economy and its global political and military influence.
The Program for International Student Assessment, which measures academic achievement in 65 of the world's wealthiest countries, found that students in the U.S. were outpaced by their peers elsewhere in all three subjects tested. Students in 29 countries or educational systems scored higher in math, while those in 22 countries did better in science, and 19 countries did better in reading. The PISA exam put students from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and South Korea at the top of its rankings, while several countries comparable to the U.S., including Ireland and Poland, pulled ahead for the first time.
Meanwhile, American students did only about as well on the test as they did the last time it was administered, in 2009. Optimists might take that to mean that the U.S. is at least holding its own in the global educational competition, but the reality is that America is standing still while other countries forge ahead. And in a rapidly evolving global marketplace, standing still year after year is the same as falling behind.

The Department of Education operates a wide range of subsidy programs for elementary and secondary schools. The aid and related federal regulations have not generally lifted academic achievement. The department also subsidizes higher education through student loan programs. Unfortunately, that aid has fueled inflation in college tuition and is subject to widespread abuse.
The department spent about $48 billion in 2013, or $400 for every U.S. household. It employs 4,300 workers and operates 153 different subsidy programs.More

She starts by following The L.A.Times' homeless data map, and sets out to have conversations with people who do not have homes. Since October, Biagiotti has been learning about their varied experiences and connecting their stories to larger issues. Along the way, she gains input and insights from Angelenos.
The series concept is to build a dynamic documentary scene-by-scene with our audience. Thank you for participating and helping us tell this story.

The...A growing number of American cities are ticketing or arresting homeless people for essentially being homeless. The new laws ban behavior commonly associated with homelessness like reclining in public, sharing food or sitting on a sidewalk.
Supporters argue these measures are necessary to push homeless people into the shelter system and maintain public safety. Critics say the laws violate the rights of homeless people and ignore the more complicated drivers of homelessness like mental illness.
We found homeless people camping in the woods to escape police harassment, a homelessness consultant opposed to feeding homeless people and a city that uses solitary confinement to force homeless people into shelters.
VICE News began its investigation in Boise, ID, where a group of homeless people have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of these laws. Their case could change the way homeless people are treated across the country.

While this is perfectly reasonable theory on its face, it can be soundly eliminated as a viable explanation. I'll be putting together a short video to demonstrate this.More
