War of the Worldviews : Science, Religion, and the Natural World.

Uploaded by ForaTv on 30 Dec 2011 : Physicist Leonard Mlodinow distinguishes between what he sees as the roles of science and religion in understanding the world. While some find spirituality useful for explaining some of the things science can't, he explains, problems arise when spiritual answers are given to material questions.

Deepak Chopra and Leonard Mlodinow: War of the Worldviews. Presented in collaboration with Sixth and I Historic Synagogue. In War of the Worldviews: Science vs. Spirituality, the two bestselling authors debate the most fundamental questions of human existence.

How did the universe begin? Where did life come from? Is there design in nature?
Without defending organized religion, Chopra asserts that there is design in the universe and a deep intelligence behind the rise of life. Mlodinow, CalTech physicist and the writing collaborator of Stephen Hawking, argues for the viewpoint of science, specifically of modern quantum physics.
War of the Worldviews opens the public's eyes to the fascinating frontier where knowledge and mystery converge and every assumption about life, God, and the universe are open to debate. Program moderated by Timothy Shriver, Chairman and CEO of the Special Olympics.
Physicist and author Leonard Mlodinow explores the extraordinary extent to which randomness, chance and probability influence and shape our work and everyday lives. Mlodinow was a writer for the television series MacGyver and Star Trek: The Next Generation and co-author with Stephen Hawking of the recent best-seller The Grand Design.

'Who reigns over US polity

USA is the ruling state of the world and hence possesses the position of the global leader:
October is the 10th anniversary of the US-led invasion of Afghanistan, the beginning of the 2012 federal austerity budget, and the month in which demonstrations in the US have heated up. It's no longer just about corporate greed and the crooked banksters, Americans are fighting to take back and change the US political system, end policies which create a wealth divide and take back the democracy which they feel they have lost.

The pursuance of “gross national happiness”.


NEW YORK – We live in a time of high anxiety. Despite the world’s unprecedented total wealth, there is vast insecurity, unrest, and dissatisfaction. In the United States, a large majority of Americans believe that the country is “on the wrong track.” Pessimism has soared. The same is true in many other places.
Against this backdrop, the time has come to reconsider the basic sources of happiness in our economic life. The relentless pursuit of higher income is leading to unprecedented inequality and anxiety, rather than to greater happiness and life satisfaction. Economic progress is important and can greatly improve the quality of life, but only if it is pursued in line with other goals.
In this respect, the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan has been leading the way. Forty years ago, Bhutan’s fourth king, young and newly installed, made a remarkable choice: Bhutan should pursue “gross national happiness” rather than gross national product. Since then, the country has been experimenting with an alternative, holistic approach to development that emphasizes not only economic growth, but also culture, mental health, compassion, and community.
Dozens of experts recently gathered in Bhutan’s capital, Thimphu, to take stock of the country’s record. I was co-host with Bhutan’s prime minister, Jigme Thinley, a leader in sustainable development and a great champion of the concept of “GNH.” We assembled in the wake of a declaration in July by the United Nations General Assembly calling on countries to examine how national policies can promote happiness in their societies.

Lynas : share down & shareholders demand that chairman steps down.

Philip Wen | September 23, 2011 - the age 

 A VOCAL group of retail shareholders in rare-earths miner Lynas is seeking to remove mining entrepreneur Nick Curtis (pic) as chairman, citing concerns over ''risks to corporate governance''. Mr Curtis, who is also the chief executive of Lynas, had attempted to sell a lucrative rare-earth deposit to a related company, Forge Resources, earlier this year. 

Despite excluding himself from the sale process for conflict-of-interest reasons, the plan was abandoned on feedback from the company's major institutional shareholders. The transaction - which would have delivered Mr Curtis a lucrative parcel of shares, boosting his stake in Forge to close to 40 per cent - also drew the ire of the small group of retail shareholders. 

Having formed the Lynas Shareholders Association, they are now calling for support from more shareholders to put forward a resolution to replace Mr Curtis with an independent chairman at the company's annual meeting next month. The group must have the support of 5 per cent of voting power or 100 shareholders to have its resolutions put forward at the meeting. 

Corporate governance guidelines outlined by the Australian Securities Exchange recommend that ''the role of chair and chief should not be exercised by the same individual''. Lynas declined to comment yesterday, but did announce the appointment of Kathleen Conlon to the board as an independent non-executive director. 

Former Telstra chief executive Ziggy Switkowski was also appointed to the board this year. Lynas is expected to report a full-year loss before tax of $57 million today as it ramps up towards production. 

Shares in Lynas closed 17.5¢, or 14 per cent, lower at $1.105 - more than 60 per cent off its April high of $2.70.

Armageddon Ready: Russian solar probe to predict Earthly cataclysms.

Uploaded by RussiaToday on Jul 31, 2011 - Some scientists believe bursts of solar activity cause natural disasters on our planet, but until now the star has been too difficult to reach or explore in any detail. Some Russian researchers think they have the solution. ­Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis -- apocalyptic pictures are becoming an ordinary part of news bulletins across the globe. And scientists are not giving out reassuring forecasts. "Unfortunately, we're expecting more severe cataclysms which may lead to large-scale human losses and destruction," says Baku-based Professor Elchin Kakhalilov of the Global Network for the Forecasting of Earthquakes. "I'm talking about even a possible shift of the centers of our entire civilization." The change in the Earth's seismic activity coincides with the rise of activity on the sun. Scientists have been witnessing gigantic bursts of plasma on its surface and say they are affecting our planet, even though it is over 90 million miles away.

Apple beats Google in brand wars

May 9, 2011 - Measuring a brand's worth is an imprecise art. Apple has nevertheless been deemed the world's most valuable. At $153 billion, according to a new survey, it accounts for about half the company's market capitalisation and nearly 10 times its estimated value five years ago.

Tech companies also populate the top ranks. There are good reasons they dominate the list - and why they're prone to big swings in value.The survey, by a subsidiary of WPP, estimated the earnings resulting from big brands and attempted to put a multiple on them to account for future growth. The result is a tech-heavy list. Google, at $111 billion, ranks second, IBM is third and Microsoft fifth.

Thugs use intimidation. A liberal application of "Do this or I'll do that," as a means of forcing innocent people, the thugs see as sheep to be fleeced

Extortion, intimidation, and scams: these are the tactics of thugs. On the streets of Chicago there are neighborhoods where the police won’t enter after dark. Gangs of thugs rule the night protecting the neighborhood or engaging in what the police in other places quaintly call extortion, intimidation and other activities common to organized crime.

The difference between the cliquethat has captured power in the United States and an organized crime family lies more in the magnitude of their scams and the legalized cover which gives them impunity than any other standard. 

The generational theft and constitutional subversion that theObama administration and Congress commit on a daily basis is no more morally defensible than the shakedowns and extortions of a local street gang or other community organizers on the Southside of Chicago.

Thugs use intimidation. A liberal application of “Do this or I’ll do that,” as a means of forcing innocent people, seen merely as sheep to be fleeced, into doing what they want. The examples of the Obama Administration’s thuggishness abound and are as close as the headlines.

Japanese scientist creates radiation-absorbing powder

A Japanese university professor claims he has invented a radiation-absorbing powder which he believes will be useful at the disaster-hit Fukushima power plant.

­Tomihisa Ohta’s anti-radiation powder consists of a mixture of minerals including zeolite, which is said to capture radiation in water and absorb the isotopes of cesium, iodine and strontium.

The scientist said that experiments he has held with colleagues from Kumaken Kougyou Co, a chemistry company, showed that 1.5 grams dissolved in ten milligrams of water almost fully absorbs particles of caesium. The concentrate can also reportedly isolate radioactive particles of iodine and strontium from the water. Professor Ota believes that the discovery may be required at Fukushima-1 "to clear 67,000 tons of highly radioactive water accumulated in the station’s bottom rooms and tunnels.”

Nicholas Negroponte: 'Disband the United Nations'

OCT 5 2010, The United Nations, created to maintain international peace and security, is failing at doing both of those things, Nicholas Negroponte told a room filled with engineers as part of a forum on Global Technology held by the National Academy of Engineering in Washington D.C.

"Disband the United Nations and start over again," the MIT professor and founder of the One Laptop per Child Association said in response to a question about how to secure consumer data in an increasingly globalized world. The post-World War II institution wasn't built to address the challenges of the digital age, he said.

"The opposite of global is national," said Negroponte, who was famously raised all over the world and is brother to John Negroponte, the former United States Ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush. "I look at nationalism as a disease." (And he has for a long time.)

While Negroponte started the One Laptop per Child program as a means to educate third world children that don't have access to books, let alone the Internet, he found, over time, that the bigger goal was to end isolation.

What others said - Author: Richard Gott is literary editor of the Guardian, a British newspaper.

Many people had hoped that the United Nations would become a relevant force in the wake of the cold war. Since then, however, the U.N. has increasingly been attacked as being a corrupt, wasteful, and ineffective organization. In fact, in its current form, the U.N. is a conservative organization that serves the interests of capitalist countries, and it is incapable of being reformed as a democratic institution. As public support continues to subside, the U.N. is likely to implode—and its demise should not be mourned.

Catholic church gives blessing to iPhone app

Pope Benedict XVIPope Benedict XVI has said Catholics should use digital technologies responsibly.

The Catholic Church has approved an iPhone app that helps guide worshippers through confession.
The Confession program has gone on sale through iTunes for £1.19 ($1.99).
Described as "the perfect aid for every penitent", it offers users tips and guidelines to help them with the sacrament.
Now senior church officials in both the UK and US have given it their seal of approval, in what is thought to be a first.
The app takes users through the sacrament - in which Catholics admit their wrongdoings - and allows them to keep track of their sins.
It also allows them to examine their conscience based on personalised factors such as age, sex and marital status - but it is not intended to replace traditional confession entirely.
Instead, it encourages users to understand their actions and then visit their priest for absolution.
