Did you hear about the 800 esteemed scientists who came together and demanded the production of genetically modified crops and products be stopped? Scientists who called on world powers to re-evaluate the future of agriculture and seek sustainability rather than corporate profits? Don’t be surprised if you haven’t, as the mainstream media won’t touch this one.

Eight-hundred scientists did make such a demand. They made it first over a decade ago and they have updated it over the years, adding signatures and release dates. Still global powers have all but ignored their calls.

The Institute of Science in Society is a non-profit group of scientists from around the world, dedicated to bringing an end to what they refer to as the “dangerous GMO “experiment. In their…

I Carry Your Heart With Me by E.E.Cummings – Poetry Reading


Published on Jun 7, 2012

I Carry Your Heart With Me — A poem by E.E.Cummings.

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in
my heart) I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
I fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet ) I want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

Pearls of Wisdom – Poetry Reading: Absence by Pablo Neruda. (“I have scarcely left you When you go in me, crystalline, Or trembling,..”)



Published on Jun 9, 2012 

Absence by Pablo Neruda

I have scarcely left you 

When you go in me, crystalline,
Or trembling,
Or uneasy, wounded by me
Or overwhelmed with love, as
when your eyes 
Close upon the gift of life
That without cease I give you.
My love, 
We have found each other
Thirsty and we have 
Drunk up all the water and the
Blood, 
We found each other
Hungry 
And we bit each other
As fire bites,
Leaving wounds in us. 
But wait for me, 
Keep for me your sweetness.
I will give you too 
A rose.

Watch me fly away
Through the night sky yeah
Now that all you touched
Has finally turned gray
And roads can’t hold us down
Winds will move us around
With no need to returnto this gray town
Wanna bet I can tell
You’ve been in bed for too long
So let’s just say so long
And I watched you at the cove
You read on rocks below
And I turned homewithout so much as hello
Wanna know where I goI’ve been away for too long
And it’s hard to leave when I haven’t seen
You in so long
And if we had just held out for tomorrow
We might have seen
What seemed so far away
We didn’t even bother to stay
There it goes I can tell
You’re gonna to keep your eyes to the ground
Waiting for something to finally come around
Tell you that you knew
That you weren’t wrong
And it’s finally time for so long

US / Half of College Grads Are Overqualified For Their Current Job


the Asphalt jungle knows no civil rules!

Job Market Monitor

Then last week Susan Adams received a report from consulting firm McKinsey, done together with student website Chegg, which is making that pit in my stomach deeper. In October and November of last year McKinsey surveyed 4,900 former Chegg customers, a mix of young people who went to private, public, vocational and for-profit institutions. The findings are truly sobering. Nearly half of grads from four-year colleges are working in jobs that don’t require a four-year degree. A striking sub-fact: grads from public universities are 11% more likely to feel overqualified than those who went to private schools. Susan would have thought it would be the other way around.  The study cites a Bureau of Labor Statistics number that underlines the McKinsey findings: 48% of employed U.S. college grads are in jobs that require less than a four-year degree.

Even more chilling than those numbers is a figure Susan read some time ago that…

Composed by legendary songwriter Irving Berlin, “White Christmas” has been recorded by numerous singers. By far, the best known version is performed by Crosby. However, it is not his 1942 recording that American audiences hear endlessly during Christmastime, but rather the re-recording he made in 1947. The song was further popularized by the film of the same name—starring Crosby—released in 1954. How many copies is Crosby’s “White Christmas” single estimated to have sold worldwide? More… Discuss


“White Christmas” is an Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the version sung by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single of all time, with estimated sales in excess of 50 million copies worldwide.

The original version was No. 1 on the US charts for 11 weeks on it’s original release. However it was also released many times in the years afterwards including a 1947 version and did very well on the charts.
