2D Dinosaur that watches your every move

Although it's completely still

Some paintings, like the Mona Lisa, seem to follow you anywhere you go with their eyes.

But this deceptively friendly-looking dinosaur has an unnerving way of moving, not just its eyes, but its entire head to match your gaze. [ Read More... ]

Merck Admits Injecting Cancer Viruses (SV40 and others) In Millions

Steve Marsh: Help this farmer stop Monsanto's GM canola

Steve Marsh's trial is scheduled to start on the 10th of February, 2014 at the Western Australian Supreme Court.

You might not have heard of Steve Marsh yet but this man could lose everything to protect your right to eat GM-free food. Steve is an organic farmer from a farming community South of Perth in Kojonup, Western Australia and in 2010, the state government of Western Australia lifted the ban on GM canola, allowing for the commercial cultivation of this GM crop for the first time. As a result many farmers, including Marsh's next door neighbour, began growing GM canola. Subsequently, Steve found GM canola plants spread over much of his farm, containing seed. 70% of Steve's farm was contaminated and he lost his organic certification. [ Read More... ]

U.K Councils generate own power to take on the big six energy firms

Prompted by fuel poverty, local authorities in Britain and Ireland are generating their own cheaper power

Councils once powered much of Britain, literally. After bringing clean water, sanitation and public health to households, they saw energy as an extension of a social obligation to liberate the masses.


When the City of Carlisle opened a new power station in 1927, it even invoked Emile Zola in the foreword to a fancy commemorative brochure: "The time must come when electricity will be for everyone, like the waters of the earth and the winds of heaven. It must be provided, liberally, enabling the people to use it as they wish, like the air which they breathe." [ Read More... ]

Assaults on democracy

There are at least two fundamental requirements for a functioning democracy. In various ways, in recent years, we have seen political parties in Australia attempting to subvert and limit these requirements. This is an assault on democracy itself. It may not be deliberate, political parties, like business entities, will work within the constraints of the law to achieve their ends, and loopholes and aggressive tactics are a part of the game. But dress it up how you may, attempting to coerce the workings of parliament and the electoral choices of a population is anti-democratic even if done within the limitations of the laws of that democracy.

The revolutionary box

It's not just the sweatshops of Asia that make the stuff we buy so cheap

The journalist Rose George ran away to sea for five weeks in 2012 to write a book. She sailed on the Danish-owned container ship Maersk Kendal from Felixstowe in Britain to Singapore via the Suez Canal, a voyage of over 9000 nautical miles: six ports, two oceans, five seas.


When George finally came ashore she had gathered in her notebooks the fascinating story of what she calls our collective sea blindness; how the impact of modern day shipping is hidden in plain sight. Despite having made the world's globalised economy possible, the international shipping industry is pretty much taken for granted. Even the most obtuse consumer knows that the cheap t-shirt on their back comes from China or Bangladesh, but how many stop to consider just how it got to their shopping bags in the first place?

US to China: Stop behaving all sovereign!

A favorite lie propagated by Western power elites, especially in the US and Britain, is that globalization is 'good' because it bypasses national borders that 'limit trade, investments, democracy and human rights'.

Which in a more bottom-line parlance means 'sovereign borders are bad; globalization is good'.

A 'borderless world' they call it, as they try to persuade the world to drop national borders and 'go global'. Everybody, that is, except the US, UK, (and 'little Israel'). So when China asserts that it is a sovereign state, the White House, Pentagon and their friends go ballistic. [ Read More... ]
