Analistul acesta de 29 de ani tocmai a renuntat la toată viata lui -- la prietenă, job si casă -- pentru a deconspira programul PRISM al Statelor Unite -- program care ne citeste si înregistrează emailuri, mesaje de Skype, postări de Facebook si telefoane de ani de zile.
Când Bradley Manning a trimis informatiile astea la Wikileaks, Statele Unite l-au încarcerat dezbrăcat în conditii despre care Natiunile Unite au declarat ca fiind "crude, inumane si degradante".
În cele ce urmează autoritătile si presa decid cum să reactioneze la scandalul ăsta. Dacă milioane dintre noi îl sustin pe Edward în următoarele 48 de ore, vom trimite mesajul puternic că el trebuie tratat ca un denuntător curajos, si că Statele Unite ar trebui să destrame PRISM, si nu pe Edward.
adresată Presedintelui Barack Obama:
"E de datoria noastră să ne asigurăm că denuntătorul Edward Snowden este tratat corect, uman si i se respectă drepturile legale. Programul PRISM reprezintă una dintre cele mai grave abateri privind violarea intimitătii, comise de un guvern vreodată. Cerem terminarea lui imediată, iar Edward Snowden să fie recunoscut ca persoană care a actionat în interes public, în nici un caz ca un criminal periculos."
Nu intamplator pestele este prins in cantitati atat de mari din oceane, lacuri si rauri, fiind inmultit in bazine cu apa; bucatariile multor popoare ale lumii ar saraci substantial fara mancarurile din peste. Acesta se poate fierbe, se poate pregati la cuptor, pe gratar, in tigaie, se poate manca sarat, in forma cruda (sushi si sashimi japoneze), umplut; din el se poate face umplutura pentru placinte si pateuri, se pot fierbe tot felul de ciorbe si supe.
Numarul de portii: 4
peste macrou 1
cascaval Parmezan 100 g
De macrou se desprinde fileul impreuna cu pielita, care apoi se taie bucatele si se sareaza.
Zucchini se taie felii, rosiile - rondele. Cascavalul se rade.
Tutto è partito dal ricorso presentato da un 46enne originario di Palermo, condannato a 4 anni di reclusione e ad una multa di 20mila euro per essersi rifornito di quasi 4 kg di hashish. Il difensore dell’uomo ha sollevato in Cassazione la questione di legittimità costituzionale della norma sulla base del fatto che l’eliminazione della distinzione “e il rilevantissimo aumento delle pene edittali” per le condotte che riguardano le droghe leggere “non sarebbe conforme nè al principio di proporzionalità rispetto al disvalore espresso dalla condotta incriminatrice, nè all’esempio di proporzionalità predisposto a livello comunitario”.
In carnea de peste exista vitamine care se dizolva in apa: in cantitati mici - vitamina C, vitaminele din grupa B - B1, B2, B6, B12, vitaminele H si PP, de asemenea inozitol si acid pantotenic. Pestele contine mai multe substante minerale necesare organismului uman, printre care prevaleazafosforul, calciul, caliul, manganul, cobaltul, zincul, molibdenul, iodul, bromul, fluorul si alte elemente foarte importante pentru organismul uman.

Fileul de hering se taie marunt, se pune impreuna cu maioneza, mararul, ceapa taiata marunt si condimentele. Compozitia se amesteca si cu ea se umplu jumatatile de albusuri.
Well put. And quite accurate too. People have been misled into having a narrowly focused opinion as a measure of control over their behaviour and thoughts.
If the general public were given the truth about the effects, society would be quite different, and the control structures governing your behaviour would topple.
Saying drugs are responsible for societies ills and crime and misfortune is like saying the knife was responsible for its victims death instead of the person who thrust it into them.
Personal responsibility is everything and many people demonstrate a complete lack of it. The people who suffer negative effects of drugs are people who don't exercise caution, don't bother to research the pros and cons, don't think about what the ramifications may be, or let others pressure them into it and so on.
The folk who discover/ed many of these substances and their effects were or are most often scientists who in many cases test it carefully themselves. Alexander Shulgin is a prime example.
More to say in my next article on Turismo Associati blog. Danger
What many Americans, including many scientists, think they know about drugs is turning out to be totally wrong. For decades, drug war propaganda has brainwashed Americans into blaming drugs for problems ranging from crime to economic deprivation. In his new book High Price: A Neuroscientist's Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society, Carl Hart blows apart the most common myths about drugs and their impact on society, drawing in part on his personal experience growing up in an impoverished Miami neighborhood. Hart has used marijuana and cocaine, carried guns, sold drugs, and participated in other petty crime, like shoplifting. A combination of what he calls choice and chance brought him to the Air Force and college, and finally made him the first black, tenured professor of sciences at Columbia University.
Intertwined with his story about the struggles of families and communities stressed by lack of capital and power over their surroundings is striking new research on substance use. Hart uses his life and work to reveal that drugs are not nearly as harmful as many think. For example, most people who use the most “addicting” drugs do not develop a problem. Rather, Hart says, drugs are scapegoated for problems related to poverty. The policies that result from this misconception are catastrophically misguided. AlterNet spoke with Hart about his life and research.
Kristen Gynne: What are some of the false conclusions about drugs you are challenging?
Carl Hart: There are multiple false conclusions. There is a belief, for example, that crack cocaine is so addictive it only took one hit to get hooked, and that it is impossible to use heroin without becoming addicted. There was another belief that methamphetamine users are cognitively impaired. All of these are myths that have been perpetuated primarily by law enforcement, and law enforcement deals with a limited, select group of people—people who are, in many cases, behaving badly. But to generalize that to all drug users is not only shortsighted and naive, it’s also irresponsible. The impact of that irresponsible behavior has been borne primarily by black communities. Nobody really cares about black communities, and that's why this irresponsible behavior has been allowed to continue.
It's also true that we've missed critical opportunities to challenge our basic assumptions about drugs. If drugs really were as damaging as we are led to believe, a respectable society should do something to address that problem. But the thing is, the very assumptions driving our drug policy are wrong, and must be questioned.
KG:How does the lack of people of color in academia or research affect our understanding of drugs?
CH: I'd just like to be clear, I don't say people of color, I say black people, because people of color can mean a number of other [races]. I'm talking about black people who, like me, when we go back to our communities and we ask about people who we grew up with, the response is, "Well, they got caught up with a drug charge, they're upstate. They're doing some time” or, “Oh, he's doing better now that he got out of jail. He can't really find a good job, but he's doing his best.”
It would be nice if we had black scientists, more black people in science, to incorporate these kinds of experiences as they think about the questions they investigate. The problem is it’s so homogenous that critical questions about our community are ignored because they're not seen as being important.
KG:And the result is that they don't comprehend environment, or the other variables that are affecting someone's decisions or behavior, and miss the mark?
CH: That's exactly right. It's that if you don't contextualize what is happening with drugs in the country you might get the impression that drugs are so bad they're causing all these people to go to jail: “Let's find out how drugs are exerting these awful effects.” Now, you have just completely disregarded context in which all of these things occur, and that is what has happened in science. If you don't fully appreciate the context, and you think that drug users are awful, then you don't think about how a person takes care of their kid, takes care of their family, goes to work, but they also use drugs. If you don't think about all of those contextual factors, you limit the picture and that's what we've done.
It's not that science lies. Science doesn't lie. But when you look at your research with a limited view, you may erroneously draw conclusions about drugs, when in fact other variables you might not understand are what's really at play.
KG:You talk about how people are always blaming problems on drugs, when those issues really spring from the stress of poverty. What are some examples?
CH: I think crack cocaine is the easiest example In the 1980s, as I was coming of age in my teens and my early 20s, people—black people, white folks, a number of people in the country—said crack was so awful it was causing women to give up their babies and neglect their children such that grandmothers had to raise another generation of children.
Now, if you look at the history in poor communities—my community, my family—long before crack ever hit the scene, that sort of thing happened in my house. We were raised by my grandmother. My mother went away because she and my father split up. She went away in search of better jobs and left the state, but it wasn't just her. This sort of thing, this pathology that is attributed to drugs, happened to immigrant communities like the Eastern European Jews when they came to the Lower East SIde, but people simply blamed crack in the 1980s and the 1990s.
Another example is that, since the crack era, multiple studies have found that the effects of crack cocaine use during pregnancy do not create an epidemic of doomed black "crack babies." Instead, crack-exposed children are growing up to lead normal lives, and studies have repeatedly found that the diferences between them and babies who were not exposed cannot be isolated from the health effects of growing up poor, without a stable, safe environment or access to healthcare.
KG:What about the idea that drugs can turn people into criminals?
Carnea de peste marin contine un procent ridicat de proteine in comparatie cu cea de peste de apa dulce. Cantitatea de proteine in carnea unor astfel de pesti ca platica marina, caranxul, lichia, limba de mare ajunge la 19-20 %. Si mai bogata in proteine este carnea de macrou (21-23 %) si ton (22-26 %). Untuta de peste este o componenta importanta a carnii de peste. Ea contine o cantitate mare de acizi grasi, mai pretiosi fiind considerati acizii linoleic si arahidonic.

“E neproductiv sã luptãm împotriva morilor de vânt”. Mai multe jurisdictii europene au interzis complet cultivarea unor OMG-uri. Germania, de exemplu, a interzis în 2009 porumbul modificat genetic de la Monsanto, MON810. Acesta e unul din cele douã soiuri modificate genetic aprobate spre cultivare în UE, împotriva cãruia s-au exprimat si tãri precum Franta, Austria sau Ungaria.
Celãlalt e cartoful Amflora, produs de compania BASF, care a încetat sã mai vândã OMG-uri pentru cultivare anul trecut, dupã ce s-a confruntat cu o opozitie extinsã.
La rândul lor, alti mari producãtori de OMG-uri, ca Syngenta si Bayer CropSciences, s-au retras de pe piata europeanã.
Purtãtorul de cuvânt german a spus însã cã Monsanto va continua sã vândã porumb MON 810 în Spania, Portugalia si România, unde autoritãtile sunt mai deschise la cultivarea OMG-urilor decât în alte pãrti ale Europei.
Sâmburii de caise contin o cantitate mare de amigdalină, o vitamină ce distruge cancerul.
Este un fapt demonstrat: această substantă distruge repede celulele canceroase. Autorul oferă mai multe informatii despre vindecarea bolnavilor de cancer gratie B17, precum si explicatiile stiintifice ale actiunilor sale si ridică întrebarea "De ce medicina conventională nu recurge la aceasta pe scară largă împotriva bolii înselătoare?", scrie Agerpres.
Griffin sustine că vitamina B17 nu este utilizată în medicina conventională nu din ratiuni de ordin stiintific, ci din cauza politicii elitei mondiale în domeniul oncologic. Miliarde de dolari sunt cheltuite anual pe cercetare si tratamente ale cancerului, alte miliarde sunt cheltuite pe productia armatei de substante chimice destinate să lupte împotriva bolii. Astfel, ascunderea vitaminei B17 este de ordin economic pentru o industrie farmaceutică dominantă în lumea noastră.
Vitamina B17, care ucide cancerul, este continută în special în sâmburii de caise. Acestia au fost declarati oficial medicament împotriva tuturor tipurilor de cancer încă acum 35 de ani. După cel de-al Doilea Război Mondial, dr. Max Gerson si-a tratat cu succes pacientii cu acest remediu si l-a inclus în metoda sa de combatere a cancerului.
Amigdalina se găseste în sâmburii de caise, migdale, visine, piersici, prune si mere, precum si în semintele de mere, sorg, mei, seminte de in, linte, unele soiuri de fasole si struguri. De asemenea, în unele plante si multe alte produse pe care omul modern nu le utilizează în mod curent în alimentatie.
Modul actual de viată ne face să consumăm produse din făină rafinată, mult zahăr, ulei de gătit si alte produse industriale si procesate, în timp ce alimentele organice naturale au fost mult timp absente din meniul nostru. Bunicii nostri au mâncat alimente naturale nerafinate, iar cancerul pe vremea lor era un eveniment rar. Ei consumau fructe uscate, pâine din făină brută si chiar pâine din mei. Astfel, ei aveau acces, fără să stie, la vitaminele necesare pentru o viată sănătoasă, ferită de boli, inclusiv amigdalina (B17).
I reply: " A half smoked joint". He says: "You know I can take you down to jail for that." I replied: "You know you'd be taking me to jail stoned, wouldn't THAT be illegal?"
He looked at me like I had said the dumbest thing.
He says: "Ok wise guy we will see how wise you will be when I take you down to jail." I replied: " How can you be wise taking me to jail for a joint, when there are people out there selling crack to teenagers in neighborhoods you pussies are too afraid to go into. Poor people of different races are beating eachother/their children/their wives up while you guys turn your blind eye, because rich people are robbing them en masse, and you motherfuckers are arresting people for joints just so you can fine me and make more money at the end of the month. You sir should be in jail." He says: " No, it is my duty to catch crime and take you to jail. "
If you put a plaster cast on a broken arm the skin starves for Vitamin D, the muscles weaken due to strangled range of motion, the nerve synapses depress to a whimper of their former joy. Twenty-first century hominids? We shroud our entire skin palette except for face, neck and hands - we obliterate symbiosis with the planet.
We hide in cocoons, when we could be free as butterflies.
History reveals many cultures that were not clothes-minded. Spartans were basically bare and their victories in pan-Hellenic sports competitions enticed all neighboring Greeks to exercise nude, creating the word “gymnasium” (Greek gymnos = naked). Romans mingled in magnificent bathhouses, enjoying dense communal nudity as they drank, dined, defecated, bathed, read books, argued politics, and watched theater. Adamists — naked heretics — performed stripped-down church services in North Africa, Bohemia, the Netherlands, and England. Pre-Hitler Germans were avid adherents of Freikorperkultur (“Free Body Culture”) with 70,000 attending co-ed Nacktkultur schools.
There’s naked Japanese in hot springs, naked Finns in saunas, “sky-clad” Jain monks in India, plus millions of nudists worldwide going to “Nakation” camps, beaches, and resorts. They’re still sporty as Spartans, eager to hike naked (“free bush rambling”), canoe naked (“canuding”), bicycle naked, ride horses naked, run naked, play volleyball, badminton, ping-pong and chess naked, swim naked, dance naked, do Naked Yoga, Naked Tai Chi, Naked Gardening, Naked Bowling, and of course, many of us, perhaps you and I, dear readers, are NIFOC — Naked In Front of Computers.
Many famous figures were bare-all aficionados; too many politicians to name, so I’ll just list sci-fi and scientists: Leonard Nimoy, Alexander Graham Bell, Robert Heinlein, and seismologist Charles Richter. Nudism is prominent in Philip Jose Farmer’s Riverworld books and John Varley’s Steel Beach. Celebrities? Many movie stars skinny-dip at the French Riviera, trying to elude paparazzi seeking pix of Bruce WIllis’ willy or Natalie Portman’s port side.
Here’s evidence suggesting that skin-only can be superior:
Born Free. Pediatricians agree that infants thrive with a daily dose of “naked time” because the unhampered range of motion aids brain development, stimulating neuron growth. Recent discoveries reveal that the “plastic” brain changes and develops throughout our entire lives. Neuroplasticity pioneer Michael M. Merzenich believes, “Everything that you can see happen in a young brain can happen in an older brain.” Doesn’t this imply that “naked time” is equally valuable for humans of any age, especially the elderly?
Weakened Bodies. A 2003 University of Reading study entitled “A Naked Ape Would Have Fewer Parasites” posits that “humans evolved hairlessness to reduce parasite loads, especially ectoparasites that may carry disease.” Unfortunately, the garments we wear can be a breeding ground for filthy fungi and bad bacterium, causing yeast infections, urinary tract infections, rotting toenails. Lyme Disease deer ticks can grab onto our sweaters and sea lice can sneak into our bathing suit crotches. Cinched-up belts, ties, and clothes impede breathing. Men’s snug pants raise testicle temperature, lowering sperm count and fertility.
Barefoot Medicine. Going shoeless is now recognized as an anti-Alzheimer’s, brain-boosting activity because the sole sensation entices your brain into growing extra, efficient neuron connections. Dr. Norman Doidge (author of The Brain That Changes Itself) believes skipping shoes increases brain flexibility and youthfulness, and many podiatrists now advise going barefoot as much as possible. Bare feet are today’s prescription. Will tomorrow’s elixir take the next step: Bare Body?
The producers of the film Kevin & Trae Booth and Brian Patterson have worked with LEAP since 2007 and have spent three years working on this film. We believe that the sobering message of "American Drug War 2" will be a LEAP recruiting tool for many years to come.
This may sound somewhat obvious, but I would argue that this is a fundamental sticking-point when discussing such matters, as it is difficult to link individuals to the antisocial and unethical actions they perpetrate [1:2] without a historically accurate point of reference.
For example, when discussing matters such as the proposal that 9/11 may have been initiated by our ‘leaders’ , I find that people quite often respond with the simple question ‘why?’, as it seems absurd to think that our ‘leaders’ would do something quite so inhuman and immoral for some sort of political gain. I will not attempt here to go into what their motives were, but rather into why it is that we, the general public, rarely remember the lessons of the past and continue to be misled about the circumstances leading to each and every conflict.
At this juncture I would suggest that the reader check out an article by John Pilger entitled ‘Our children are learning lies’ in which he clearly sets out several examples of how we are taught about an historic event at school and how this information will in turn have a direct effect on the formation of our future perceptions of the world 
Unfortunately, this information can all too often bear little or no relation to the actual event (Pilger uses Vietnam as a prime illustration of this), because the language and information used to teach us essentially pre-programs our comprehension of future warfare, automatically predisposing us to whichever side has been identified as the ‘goodies’ while creating a vested dislike or even hatred of the ‘baddies’.
Perhaps ‘baddie’ should be rephrased in Orwellian terms as ‘a figure of hate’. From what I remember of my own learning on Vietnam, I recall thinking that the Americans became involved in order to help protect the ‘Democratic South’ against the ‘Communist North’ — this is probably what most people believe. According to Pilger, this analysis of the Vietnam conflict is far from the truth; in fact, almost completely contrary to the reality of the situation. The excerpt below comes from his article referring to a school textbook written on the subject:
Chemtrails, Nanoaluminum, and Neurodegenerative and Neurodevelopmental Effects By Russell L. Blaylock, M.D. August 23, 2012
The internet is littered with stories of “chemtrails” and geoengineering to combat “global warming”; and, until recently, I took these stories with a grain of salt. One of the main reasons for my skepticism was that I rarely saw what they were describing in the skies. But over the past several years I have noticed a great number of these trails and I have to admit they are not like the contrails I grew up seeing in the skies. They are extensive, quite broad, are laid in a definite pattern, and slowly evolve into artificial clouds. Of particular concern is that there are now so many – dozens every day are littering the skies.
My major concern is that there is evidence that they are spraying tons of nanosized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues. Of special concern is the effect of these nanoparticles on the brain and spinal cord, as a growing list of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) are strongly related to exposure to environmental aluminum.
Nanoparticles of aluminum are not only infinitely more inflammatory, they also easily penetrate the brain by a number of routes, including the blood and olfactory nerves (the smell nerves in the nose). Studies have shown that these particles pass along the olfactory neural tracts, which connect directly to the area of the brain that is not only most affected by Alzheimer’s disease, but also the earliest affected in the course of the disease. It also has the highest level of brain aluminum in Alzheimer’s cases.
