The rains in Greece have been alleviated somewhat.
I’m hoping that the rains in Syria can be fostered, that the droughts can be eliminated there.
I really like what Schwarzengger is doing lately re hi-speed rail.
Relieved that it looks like Igor is going to stay in the ocean and away from land.
Not sure I like what is happening in Sweden, because I really like their graduated penalty system for motor violations and I hope this doesn’t indicate a turn away from this civilized approach.
I can’t figure out the stock markets yet. I’m not sure everything should be as monetized as it has been. I’ll leave this up to God-concept for now to figure out. But I’m hoping that we can try to focus on real benefits for all people and real standards of living for all people rather than these exorbitant profits that rich people seem to be so good at reaping at the expense of poor people.
I have no idea why the Saudi diplomats would want asylum here (although maybe I do). Whatever works for the world.
Commonnightmares (commondreams.org) is as ever skeptical about the situation.
I’m hoping for less vitriol from commondreams, but I’m glad for the conscientiousness. Oy.
Hoping Obama makes good on the symbol of GuantÃ¡namo, and campaign promises & visions of hope. I’m sorry I doubted Obama, because it looks like his heart is in the right place. I am sure that if anyone can find a way through this, it’s him. I’m hoping for a second term for him.
Wishing Clinton luck on the mideast talks, although I never believe that talks are a “last chance.” Hoping the Republicans can pick up on the idea of diplomacy; I know this is possible, especially if Ahnold can run as president. There are always chances for more talks.
Weird news about cancer, and I don’t agree with its headline (The 10 Deadliest Cancers and Why There’s No Cure) I’ve read that smoking grass can help prevent and heal lung cancer, and that a raw food diet also can help turn it around. I’ve also met casualties and survivors of breast cancer, survivors of leukemia, survivors of brain cancer, survivors of cancer of the larynx.
Feeling hopeful about this environmental organization, and wishing I could do something about it, but not sure I should be so panicked. I think making as many changes as possible to one’s carbon footprint is a good idea. But also, I think it’s important to focus on the possibilities for spontaneous evolution of species. I recently read that the coral colonies are not all as susceptable to ph and warming changes as was thought. And there are some 15 new species of bees, and that they are hardier. I am hoping they are good pollinators and have tasty honey!
