Berto Jongman: Iraq, Syria, Libya, UK – Intelligence failures all

Iraq, Syria, Libya, UK – Intelligence failures all

• Lack of intelligence as well as Intelligence
• Intelligence begins at home, but should be deployed away

Given the resources available to US – and British – intelligence agencies, it seems strange that the attraction, influence, finance, and military strength, of the extremist group which calls itself Islamic State (Isis) came as such a surprise.

This is a wonderful story that gives some hope that the dominant culture is opening to the interconnected and interdependent nature, of nature.

More good news. The Clean Air Act, which the Theocratic Right has been trying to undermine since it was passed, we now know, based on actual data, has done great good. Not enough to be sure, but at least a step in the right direction.

Isabelle Stengers on on user movements and systems of horizontal apprenticeship

Andre Ling introduces the importance of the the Belgian philosopher of science Isabelle Stengers:

“She is a truly remarkable philosopher and currently one of my favourites. While she has written some very solid books on the philosophy of science (such as The Power of Invention, Cosmopolitics, and others), her more recent books are shorter, highly accessible and powerful. The titles of her two most recent books that I especially want to share with you are:

* Capitalist Sorcery: Breaking the Spell

* Au temps des catastrophes: Resister a la barbarie qui vient (currently only available in French, but due to be translated, I am told, in open access format in English)

Berto Jongman: 9/11 Crime of the Century – Richard Gage on Alex Jones Outlines Progress in Illuminating Truth for the Public

Richard Gage item starts at 12:00

Phi Beta Iota: Richard Gage is an American hero, ten times more valuable than Edward Snowden, himself a hero, because Richard is taking on the entire architecture of false flag government by lies. As we like to observe, “the truth at any cost lowers all other costs.” The truth about the US Government must become known if We the People are to restore balance to the Republic and cease destroying the world.

Baby corals and fish smell their way to the best home

EXTRACT

Scents emitted by certain species of adult corals draw fish and coral larvae to healthy reefs, while the noxious odor of out-of-control seaweed drives them away from damaged ecosystems.

“These are fantastic results,” says Jelle Atema, a chemical and behavioral ecologist at Boston University. The findings demonstrate “dramatic differences” in coral or fish behavior, he says, and “how important chemical signals are in regulating the interactions between corals and seaweeds and fishes.”

The Factory of the Future Will Be Shaped by the Internet of Things

Andrew Dugenske, Alain Louchez

Manufacturing.net, August 2014

Around the globe, intelligent and pervasive industrial automation has been catapulted in recent years to a top national or regional priority. Known by different names, e.g., “Advanced Manufacturing”, “Smart Manufacturing”, “Industry 4.0” or “Factories of the Future” to highlight a few, these initiatives all bear the same characteristics, i.e., transforming the manufacturing process from a patchwork of isolated silos to a nimble and seamless whole fully integrated with the downstream and upstream production environment.

Democracy is over: Americans have ‘near-zero’ impact on policy and laws; corporations dominate government actions – NaturalNews.com
