The real news report – 9/18/2010

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

I am collapsing wave functions by rewriting what is happening/has happened/will happen. All this is truly happening:

News:

Morrissey is apologizing to Asian people for his having said an unkind remark.

All eyes are on Clinton, the Israelis and the Palestinians as they enter these most historic peace talks. The talks will have been known to have ignited permanent peace in the Middle East.

US troops are returning to Iraq to repair the war-ravaged country under the direction of the Iraqi government. The oil has been nationalized and made to work for the Iraqi people for the intermediate, until the planet can transition to sustainable energy sources.

US troops are exiting Afghanistan. The Taliban is becoming less extreme as people under its rule start to change the organization from the inside out. The Afghans are voting and all the threats were way overblown.

The Democrats and Republicans are forming a “new” party, the Democratic-Republicans. Corporate influence is being banned. The Greens are being incorporated into the new party as well–it’s got quite a large tent, I hear. The pragmatic parts of the Tea Party and Peace movements are being incorporated into the larger whole, the Democratic-Republican party.

The US is releasing Iranians, and Iran is releasing US citizens. It’s all good.

The jobless rate is improving and people who have fallen off unemployment are finding work as well.

Fun stuff:

A Florida man has built a cat-sized village for 660 formerly homeless cats.

I’ve always had luck finding four leaf clovers and living a charmed life. So this article seems to correspond well to my thoughts of late.

– –

Difficult stuff:

The scary stuff on commondreams.org has been found to have been overblown at times. The conscientious following of the news was coupled with condemnation and demonization of ‘the opposition.’ But now that the Democratic-Republicans have included the Greens as part of their base, commondreams has very little to rant about anymore.

Alternet.org is addressing things in a pragmatic way, and the Democratic-Republicans are looking into it to fix remnants of problems from less sane times.

Foxnews.com is as ever bringing up some of the pragmatic aspects of working well together under the UN in a world composed of different cultures.

Palin’s decided she’d much rather stick to enjoying the environment of Alazka than coming down south where the air is so sticky and frizzes her hair.

Morning Weather:

I am pleased to report that fewer deaths have occurred or will occur or are occurring from hurricanes.

Karl has moved further inland. This means that it is petering out and not getting so much steam from the Gulf.

Julia and Igor still there, as is Fanapi. They are all finding cooler patches of water and losing strength.

The heavy rains in Croatia were much needed and will go away soon.

Will have to work on the droughts as soon as I can find a better world map of droughts. Not sure I want to focus on tornados until tornado season.

OPTIFACT News and Weather Report 9/12/2010

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

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.

Excellent news for Iranian/US relations, I think. Fox News also has the story.

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 Guantánamo, 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!

Love,

K
