Take A Walk on the Wild Side: Encounters With Animals in Nature
Take a Walk on the Wild Side:
Encounters with Animals in Nature Most of us have had the experience -- wonderful, heart-stopping, sometimes terrifying -- of unexpectedly encountering an animal in the wild. It may be the tranquil sight of deer off in the woods, or a hawk circling in the canyons of Manhattan. It can be scary, as in some of the recent
on the East Coast, or inspire reverence for the raw beauty of the creature sighted.

Revisiting the Seth Material

Act Now to Make GMO Labeling a Reality by Dr. Mercola
Currently, Americans are standing at a crossroads: one way leads to certain labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods across the country; the other will lead toward the
elimination of that possibility. If you've never taken action on this issue before, I urge you to do so now. We need every single American who cares about this issue to make their opinion known very clearly to their federal representatives.
The burden should not be placed on the traditional salmon fishermen to get their
nature-provided fish certified as GMO-free...

Buying Good Olive Oil - Avoid the Scams
, John P. Thomas writes:
Do you trust the label on your Extra Virgin Olive Oil? Numerous scandals have been uncovered over the last twenty years which have revealed that many extra virgin olive oils being sold in the
United States do not meet the high standard for this product. Many have been adulterated with lower grade olive oils or with nut and seed oils. Others simply have serious flavor and aroma defects, which should prevent them from being called “extra virgin.” The controversy continues to this day….

Tasting the Universe: People Who See Colors in Words and Rainbows in Symphonies by Maureen Seaberg
"In her book, Tasting the Universe, Maureen Seaberg takes readers on an “Eat, Pray, Love” style exploration of this fascinating, newly discovered phenomenon. Occurring in about 5% of the American population, synesthesia is scientifically described as a cross-wiring, or lack of chemical inhibition, between brain neurons...
A violinist sees a scarlet form when he plays a certain note. A rock star sees waves of blue and green as she composes a ballad, while an actress tastes cake when she utters the word “table.” This fascinating mingling of the senses is called “synesthesia,” and the people who possess this amazing gift are called “synesthetes.” "

Stop Passage of the "DARK Act!"
Two weeks ago Reuters reported that a Republican congressman from
Kansas introduced legislation on Wednesday that would nullify efforts in multiple states to require labeling of genetically modified foods. The bill, dubbed the "Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act" was drafted by U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo from Kansas, and is aimed at overriding bills in roughly two dozen states that would require foods made with genetically engineered crops to be labeled as such. The bill specifically prohibits any mandatory labeling of foods developed using bioengineering. Critics have dubbed it the “DARK Act.” Dark stands for Deny Americans the Right to Know.

Feeling Great: Creating a Life of Optimism, Enthusiasm and Contentment
In an excerpt from Feeling Great: Creating a Life of Optimism, Enthusiasm and Contentment by Dadi Janki, Peter Vegso, and
Kelly Johnson, the authors write:
Optimism opens a door in difficult or hopeless situations. Optimism knows that there is always a way, no matter how many doors have been shut, and it believes that there is always a good alternative.
No matter what the crisis, an optimistic outlook will tell you that the situation you are facing is a sign that you need to find a different way of thinking or a new way of doing things.

Lowes to Phase Out Pesticides Harmful to Bees
Last week Reuters reported that home improvement chain Lowe's Cos Inc will stop selling a type of pesticide suspected of causing a decline in honeybee populations needed to pollinate key American crops, following a few
U.S. retailers who have taken similar steps last year.
The class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids, or neonics, are sold by agrichemical companies to boost yields of staple crops but are also used widely on annual and perennial plants used in lawns and gardens.
Scientists, consumer groups, beekeepers and others say bee deaths are linked to the neonic pesticides.
