A NEW REPORT shows viewers are leaving the mainstream media by the droves. According to statistics CNN is loosing 50 percent of its total viewers leading the list of losers in the media. So it looks like people are turning elsewhere to get there news.
As TVNewser‘s Chris Ariens reported today: “CNN bore the brunt of the downward trend the news networks experienced this month and for much of the first quarter, when compared to the busy first few months of 2011.
“For the month of March, CNN was down -50% in total viewers and down -60% in A25-54 viewers (Total Day).”
Criminal charges were filed against Pope Benedict XVI at the International World Court last week by two lawyers from the Pope’s home state of Bavaria. The charges, which allege crimes against humanity, were submitted by Christian Sailer and Gert-Joachim Hetzel of Marktheidenfeld to Dr Luis Moreno Ocampo, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court at the Hague. The 16,500-word indictment alleges “three worldwide crimes which until now have not been denounced … (as) the traditional reverence toward ‘ecclesiastical authority’ has clouded the sense of right and wrong”.
Calls for the Pope to be tried for crimes against humanity have been issued many times before. Only last April, Geoffrey Robinson, a United Nations jurist from the UK, called for an international criminal investigation of Benedict by the UN World Criminal Court over the cover-up of crimes by pedophile priests, but nothing came of it. That may not be the case this time because once charges are filed, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court must investigate them.
As the continuous rainfall slowed down the truck traffic, it was considered relatively successful.Project Popeye was an experiment in increased rainfall through cloud seeding jointly approved by the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Defense. The technical aspects of the experiment were verified by Dr. Donald F. Hornig, Special Assistant to the President of the United States for Science and Technology.
The government of Laos was not informed of the project, its methods or its goals.Robert S. McNamara, U.S. Secretary of Defense, was aware that there might be objections raised by the international scientific community but said in a memo to the president that such objections had not in the past been a basis for prevention of military activities considered to be in the interests of U.S. national security.During October 1966, Project Popeye was tested in a strip of the Laos panhandle east of the Bolovens Plateau in the Se Kong River valley. The test was conducted by personnel from the Naval Ordnance Test Station located at China Lake California.
Fifty cloud seeding experiments were conducted with the result that 82% of the clouds produced rain within a brief period after having been seeded. It was claimed that one of the clouds drifted across the Vietnam border and dropped nine inches of rain on a US special forces camp over a four hour period. After the successful completion of the test phase, Project Popeye transitioned from an experiment to an operational program of the U.S. Defense department.
Alpha brainwaves are associated with a relaxed, meditative, dream-like state and are between 8 Hz and 12 Hz as measured by EEG. Nada Brahma uses binaural beats to increase alpha brainwaves. The right and left channels start out with slightly different frequencies, 10 Hz apart (the Berger Rhythm). Our brain “hears” the difference, the binaural beat. You must listen to these MP3’s using headphones in order “hear” the binaural beat. The base frequency used is 136.1 Hz, the sound of Om.

LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2008 (Reuters) — “Flabbergasted” NASA scientists said on Thursday that Martian soil appeared to contain the requirements to support life, although more work would be needed to prove it.
Scientists working on the Phoenix Mars Lander mission, which has already found ice on the planet, said preliminary analysis by the lander’s instruments on a sample of soil scooped up by the spacecraft’s robotic arm had shown it to be much more alkaline than expected.
“We basically have found what appears to be the requirements, the nutrients, to support life whether past present or future,” Sam Kounaves, the lead investigator for the wet chemistry laboratory on Phoenix, told journalists.
“It is the type of soil you would probably have in your back yard, you know, alkaline. You might be able to grow asparagus in it really well. … It is very exciting for us.”
The answer is never the answer. What’s really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you’ll always be seeking. I’ve never seen anybody really find the answer— they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.
