wgm4u, My signature line is from the appendix to MMY's Gita.
 
Under the influence of maya, Brahman appears as Ishvara, the personal God, who 
exists on the celestial level of life, in the subtlest field of creation. In a

Subject: [FairfieldLife] The Personal and Impersonal God

MMY never meant to suggest that the personal *manifest* God took A form once 
and for all time. Basically this *formless* Creative Intelligence can take any 
form and has taken many forms down through the ages.

God Consciousness is merely the expansion of what MMY calls Cosmic 
Consciousness (or Self Realization to God Realization). The emphasis should be 
on the term God *Consciousness*.

Some people have called this formless Creative Intelligence (in creation) the 
Christ Consciousness and others Krishna Consciousness, those 'names' are merely 
specific to time and history. The Personal God can take any form at any time.

The Personal God is a *reflection* IN creation of the Impersonal Absolute 
Brahman. Brahman is the Silence and its personal reflection in creation is the 
dynamism (in the context of Shakti or Shiva/Shakti).

I'd like to have DST year-round. Where I live, because it's the northeast and 
close to the eastern edge of the time zone, the sun sets before 4:10 PM in the

Except for Arizona and Hawaii residents.  Arizona because they voted 
against it and Hawaii because in the tropics the sun rise and set at 
widely varying times throughout the year so it is rather superfluous 
(India for the same reason doesn't observe it).  I live
 pretty much by 
light time or standard time.  It flummoxes people who want to go to 
lunch at noon during the summer because I feel more like going to lunch 
at 1 PM.   Anyhoo, the local Bay Area comic who has the morning show on 
KGO radio on Sundays raised the question if we still want DST or not.  
Actually in the Internet age we need to move to one time zone: GMT (or 
UTC) and keep it year round.  But try to explain THAT to the 
sleepwalkers around you.  BTW, that was one thing Scientology (or L Ron) 
got right: most of the public is sleepwalking (or ign'ant as we used to 
say in TM).

Re: [FairfieldLife] Stoneham doctor's alleged killer, Stryker, dies in prison

2011-01-29 Thread gullible fool

In case anyone does not know, this doctor was a governor at the Cambridge TM 
center in the 80s, after which he spent some time working at the TMO' s 
ayurvedic clinic, the one that was off-campus on Glasgow Road and caught fire. 
His role there was to legitimize the recommendations of the non-licensed 
ayurvedic physicians from India. Same thing Stuart Rothenberg did. The wife the 
article mentions is a former MUM student. He eventually moved back to the 
Boston area, where he came to the TM center for group program on occasion and 
practiced medicine. The last time I saw him was in June or July 1998 when he 
and his wife came to the TM center after it had been sold for what the 
neighbors must have thought looked like a
 yard sale, but was all free stuff being cleared out. I lost my TM center, but 
got John Greco's backjack. Worked out in the long run. :)

Stoneham —

Dr. Timothy Stryker, the Winchester doctor who prosecutors believe played a 
role 17 years ago in the death of his then-girlfriend, Dr. Linda Goudey of 
Stoneham, died of pancreatic cancer Wednesday, Jan. 12, at the Lemuel Shattuck 
Hospital in Boston, according to Diane Wiffin, spokeswoman for the Department 
of Corrections.
Stryker was serving a four-year state prison sentence after pleading guilty in 
2009 to orchestrating and directing a perjury conspiracy in connection with the 
murder of Goudey, an obstetrician who was 42 years old when she was found 
strangled to death in her car in the parking garage of a Stoneham hospital in 
October 1993.
Stryker, of Winchester, was investigated but never criminally charged with her 
death. But in 2006 a jury returned a civil verdict finding Stryker responsible 
for the wrongful death of Goudey. Stryker was ordered to pay Goudey’s family 
more than $7 million, which has increased to $15 million with interest.
Attorney Michael Altman, who represented Goudey’s family in the civil case, 
said that in the last year or two, they were able to get whatever part of that 
$15 million they could from Stryker, which wasn’t anywhere near that figure. 
Stryker, who had a wife and three children, was forced to sell his home as part 
of the settlement. His wife divorced him. Now, besides a small amount left in 
his IRA, Stryker’s estate will provide no more monetary retribution for 
Goudey’s family, according to Altman.
“He died with no assets and in prison,” said Altman. “But the family wasn’t in 
this for the money. They were in it to make up for the fact that Timothy was 
never prosecuted. They got an overwhelming verdict [in civil court] that 
Timothy did it.”
“He ended up in jail and his life ended in jail, which was an appropriate place 
for his life to end. The verdict of getting whatever property they could and 
getting him in jail are what was the just result,” he added. “The only 
unfortunate thing is that he wasn’t prosecuted before he died. I know District 
Attorney Leone and his office felt cheated that there was no opportunity to 
complete the prosecution, and we certainly feel cheated their was no 
opportunity to take him before the criminal jury.”
Goudey’s loved ones, the Rafuse family, said Stryker’s death is “bittersweet 
irony.”
“We have always believed he was responsible for her death and his untimely end 
is only a small vindication for a life lost, but now we are forever deprived of 
ever hearing his own admission and giving us full closure,” the family said 
recently in a written statement.
“Linda made extraordinary contributions to the world of mothers and babies, so 
the end of this chapter means we can now completely focus on recognizing her 
life through our family foundation effort to give back to her world in her 
memory.”

the most serious of frauds upon the court and attempted to frustrate our 
criminal investigation into the murder of Dr. Goudey,” Leone said at the 
time.Stryker, who always maintained his innocence, remained a suspect in 
Goudey’s death.“He’s been adamant with me: ‘I did not commit this murder,’”

feels differently.“[The] news of Timothy
 Stryker’s death is both sad and disappointing,” said Leone, who worked on the

investigation into his suspected killing of Dr. Linda Goudey, and were 
encouraged by the progress we were making, and confident that we would be able 
to provide some measure of closure and justice in the criminal courts for Lin’s

Yup, as a conservative meditator I've long thought Rick Archer should
limit those rantings similarly of anti-meditation speech here on this FFL forum 
for that same larger reason of public safety.  The science is quite clear 
between meditation and non-meditation and would support the position.

This forum cries out for a committee on safety to review postings to this list.
The propitiation of meditation towards a general good is way more important

I was in the audience when Lutes came to the Boston area to give talks a couple 
of times back in 78 and 79. This was back when we were all eager to eat up 
anything anyone higher up in the movement had to say, whether MMY, Domash, 
Charlie Donahue, or Lutes, so we all bought everything Lutes had to say. 
Charlie Donahue was living in Cambridge at the time and a big part of the 
Cambridge TM center, and since he did not much care for Lutes, it was up to the 
satellite center in Wellesley to invite Lutes and host the talks. I remember 
hearing Lutes say Ifa you see a flying saucer, get on the round ones, don't 
get on the cigar-shaped ones...they're evil. (or maybe it was they're bad 
news). 
 
In the 1990s, when I was at my usual table in Annapurna, the conversation got 
around to the talk Lutes had just given in Iowa City. A friend who had been to 
the talk said Lutes denied ever saying that about the cigar-shaped ones.

Didn't Lutes say it was those who were supposed to be women in this 
lifetime, but who incarnated as boy baby's, who were light in the loafers? I 
know some people have claimed that as their belief, if not Lutes.
 
I knew someone who was a Ramtha person. The Ramtha people claim the incarnating 
being keeps coming around over and over as the same gender. Only the few 
crossovers break the pattern and are light in the loafers.

Re: [FairfieldLife] Dexter Season 5

About a month ago, I unexpectedly had no high-def for four or five nights. I 
got little help from comcast at first. I ended up going to a comcast store four 
days in a row to exchange, first, the cables, and then the DVR three times 
(losing all my archived programs yet again) and I spent each night on the phone 
with tech support for maybe a total of three or four hours on the phone that 
week. Luckily, I reached a woman in tech support who seemed to know everything 
and said she knew what my issue was right away. Turns out comcast had done some 
sort of rate code thing where they put customers in different rate codes in 
order to give them a lower price on additional HD DVRs if they rented more than 
one HD DVR. She sent some info to my DVR that fixed the issue then and there. I 
talked to comcast and retention offered a $50 credit, $20 off the monthly 
charge, and free TMC for three months. When I called to say I had not gotten 
the $50, I ended up getting
 it knocked off, plus I reached someone who said he had packages others did not 
have access to and gave me a deal with the same stuff for yet another $20 off.

I hope Showtime has another promo price deal.  I sign up for those and 
then cancel at the end of the promo price period.  I signed up for HBO 
last year to watch True Blood and the deal was 6 months for $7 a 
month.  Comcast screwed up and I changed the $18 monthly.  To compensate 
they gave me 12 months HBO for free  and now doing a little customer 
retention at $10  a month (HBO full monthly is now about $20).   But a 
$100 a month entertainment bill is a bit costly especially when I'm 
beginning to watch more stuff on Netflix than anything else.

One of his fans once insisted to me that Charlie must be speaking from direct

11 years was enough to convince some of us back then. I used to go to the 
weekly evening lecture Charlie Donahue gave at the Cambridge TM center in his 
days as east coast regional coordinator back in the 70s. In one lecture, 
Charlie was asked about UC. Charlie says something like I have no experience 
with TC, and I'm supposed to talk about CC, GC, and UC? Talk about bursting a 
bubble. I was expecting CC was a 5 to 8 year thing, hopefully much faster with 
all the residence courses I was doing, and here someone with long rounding 
courses and time with MMY and 11 years of TM (or maybe it was 8 Charlie had 
then), says he is nowhere close.

Sanchit karma is the stored reserve of karmic sanskara-s. Rather than being 
just imprints, sanskara-s are described as being the seeds for further actions. 
However, when a person liberates (jivan-mukta) from misidentification, these 
seeds are said to be burned and unable to germinate. This is said to be a 
final state – no more necessity for rebirth. 
This is a agricultural metaphor and is a useful way to consider the idea of 
living liberation. However, what is not considered is the remaining cause and 
effect relationship between those former actions and their own specific 
results/effects. 
What happens to those effects? The doer is gone … a mere fiction that has now 
disappeared from the arena of actions and their results. Even before that 
happens, the yogin/yogini realizes that the guna-s only interact among 
themselves. Yet, up until complete liberation, there were causal actions being 
performed (even right up to liberation) that will effectuate in the future. The 
final, manifest effects of these seed-samskaras however cannot be explained by 
this metaphor since a cause without an effect is philosophically meaningless. 
Thus the question … who gets the consequences of actions performed by an 
individual when that person no longer exists and will not be reborn at all … 
not even in some heavenly world?Saying everyone somehow gets a little bit of 
that left over karma is a statement that fails to understand the question. 
Moral/immoral karma is not simply some kind of consequence which everyone can 
receive – as if it was just like rain on a cloudy day.

Actually, I read a small bit -- the intro -- and I can see/speculate how some 
strata in some cultures would find the language and presentation appealing.
 
After enough time spent involved in spiritual groups where the founder and top 
person lives in the US, I noticed how the amount of ceremony, the candles, the 
photographs of deities and gurus, the prostration, the pujas, the flowery 
words, and so on, present within a group is usually inversely proportional to 
the development of that group's country. Ceremony abounds amongst poorer 
people, such as in India, amongst African tribes, and amongst Native Americans. 
All these things look cultish to the outsider. The opposite is true in the US 
- I have been associated with groups in the US where there is not an iota of it 
whatsoever. The exception in the US is when it's important to the group to 
keep the old country's traditions alive, very common with Indian traditions, 
because the path to enlightenment is seen as coming through the whole 
kit-and-kaboodle of doing not just the techniques but the bowing and the 
incense and the candles and whatever.
 Even then, it's usually a watered-down version.
 
and I can see/speculate how some strata in some cultures would find the 
language and presentation appealing.
 
Could well be. I just want to make clear that my observation and opinion of the 
difference between developed and less developed cultures in this regard is in 
no way meant to disparage the developed cultures who may find the language and 
presentation more appealing that readers in the US might.

seemingly as if she considers life an artform rather
than something to be figured out, reminds me to try

[FairfieldLife] Beer, Sunburns and Bachelor Parties -- Barcelona says Enough!

2010-08-06 Thread gullible fool










 
It's not fun and games for all in Turqland, it seems.
 
It was just past 9 a.m. on a recent Wednesday in Barcelona, but Englishmen Dave 
North and Paul Cameron were already drinking beer at an outdoor café. Actually, 
they had never stopped. We started yesterday, when we got here and just sort 
of pushed on through the night, said North, his bare chest showing the first 
flush of sunburn. That's why we're here, after all. 
 
They and a few hundred thousand others. Barcelona may be renowned for its 
superb collection of Modernist architecture, its cutting-edge cuisine, its 
Gothic center, and its world-class shopping but, thanks to a long, sandy 
coastline and budget airlines such as Easyjet, it has recently developed a 
reputation for low-cost tourism that focuses almost exclusively on booze and 
beach. Since the spring, residents in the famously cosmopolitan city — tired of 
being awakened at 4 a.m. by the drunken shouts of a visiting bachelor party or 
startled by young women strolling through its streets in bikinis and flip-flops 
— have begun fighting back. (See pictures of Michelle Obama's Spanish 
vacation.) 
 
In April, the municipal government launched a sensitivity campaign designed 
to remind visitors of the good behavior expected of them. Posters depicting 
stick figures dressed (barely) in bathing suits with a red line drawn over them 
went up on the city's kiosks and subway walls. Another, with the slogan 
Everything fits here but not everything goes, is similarly graphic about 
urinating in the streets. And a region-wide ban on happy hours and two-for-one 
drinks is intended in part to cut down on the favorite pastime of the bachelor- 
and bachelorette-party set. 
 
Ever since the 1992 Olympics and the massive urban improvement campaign that 
preceded it, Barcelona has consistently ranked among the most visited cities in 
Europe. In 2009, it received nearly 6.5 million overnight visitors, more than 
double the amount of just 10 years ago. And while many of those tourists came 
to climb the turrets of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, and stroll the galleries of 
the Picasso Museum, the city has also felt the impact of no-frills airlines and 
budget tour operators that cater to the small but significant portion of 
European tourists who travel to get, well, wasted. (See more on tourism in 
Barcelona.) 
  
And that, says Mayor Jordi Hereu, is precisely the problem. Barcelona is the 
antithesis of a theme park, says Hereu.. This is a real, functioning city, 
with a very dense population. We embrace tourism, but we want it to be 
compatible with the city's quality of life. 
  
Barcelona Adventure, which has been in business since 2000, organizes bachelor 
and bachelorette trips to the Catalan capital for about 60 people every 
weekend. The company's manager, David Coots, understands the motivation behind 
the new campaign. It's true that our clients are drunk pretty much from the 
minute they get off the plane, he says. He's not sure, however, that a 
clean-up campaign will work. They're trying to cut down on yobbish behavior, 
and improve the class of tourists they get, he says. But you can't turn 
Barcelona into Monaco. (See a TIME video on the beer-bike craze in Europe.) 
 
Maybe not. But Montse Cugat, a housewife who has lived for the past 40 years on 
a narrow street just off the Ramblas, the city's main boulevard, would like the 
city to try. This used to be a quiet neighborhood, she says. Now, if you go 
out in the morning, you can't breathe because of the stink of urine and vomit. 
Cugat still does her shopping at the city's famous market (and major tourist 
attraction), the Boquería. But sometimes I can't even get across the street 
because there are so many tourists blocking the way. 
 
It's with an eye to ensuring that the Ciutat Vella, or Old City, remains a real 
neighborhood that the municipal government has recently announced new measures 
to regulate the amount of stuffed bulls and Barça soccer team magnets that 
newspaper kiosks are allowed to sell — tchotchkes aimed at lager louts — as 
well as to control the number of hotels and souvenir shops in the area. Other 
cities have solved this problem by basically emptying some neighborhoods of 
residents, says Mayor Hereu. But in Barcelona we want to balance things. 
Residents don't need to buy postcards every day. They need to buy vegetables 
and pants for their kids. We can't let the logic of the free market destroy our 
city. (See more on the Barcelona soccer team.) 
 
In August, renovations will begin on the eleven news kiosks that dot Las 
Ramblas. Those changes will include some tourist-friendly measures, like the 
addition of electronic information boards, but will also prevent many of them 
from devoting the majority of their space to My Parents Went to Spain 
t-shirts and the like. 
 
Ramón Lamazares, president of the Association of Friends, Residents, and 
Merchants of Las Ramblas, says he welcomes the measure,

the real card's name is not John, he does not live in SF, he lives in one of 
those Scandanavian contries where paying more than half your money in taxes 
actually gets you something.
 
This is what a post from the real card looks like:

This story is reported by Mel Fabregas. He lost credibility with me by pouring 
it on so thick. So, I put his name into a google search box expecting he would 
show up as an extremist. Sure enough, the blurb on the very first search hit 
says:
 
The Veritas Show with Mel Fabregas is a weekly show exploring exopolitics, UFO 
and paranornmal phenomenona, conspiracies and current world events.
 
Now, I'm not saying anything he says is not true, because I don't know, but 
personally I would not forward stuff like this around unless it were 
corroborated by more sources.

 This was a 15-year-old kid, probably scared by it all,
 or enjoying scaring the filmmaker. Who knows where he got
 the idea? There has been talk *in the media* that BP was
 underestimating the flow, which is accurate, but the
 government has had independent scientists estimate it, and
 while it's more than was originally estimated, it's not
 vastly more--and it's being *reported* that it's more,
 so that's not a big secret.
 
 This filmmaker guy had only been there less than a day.
 It's not surprising there was a lot of hustle and bustle
 and tension in the town, because it's one of the big 
 staging areas for the cleanup, and also has some of the
 worst damage from the oil. Folks there would naturally be
 on edge and upset.
 
 I wouldn't suggest nothing the guy said was true, but he
 was taking bits and pieces and putting them together in
 a sensational way that misrepresents what's really going
 on.
 
  The two stories on Anderson Cooper last night were really
  shocking and may be the reason BP stock dropped another
  19% today. I think the biggest percentage drop since the
  crisis began.

 Wow, that second one with the survivors is hard to
 watch. I hope they're getting treatment for PTSD,
 because they sure look like they're all struggling
 with it.
 
 Cooper did an excellent job interviewing them, I
 thought, straightforward but gentle, low key.
 
 But...bear in mind that everybody has an axe to grind.
 The TV people, especially the cable folks, have an
 interest in promoting the Bad BP theme because it
 gets them eyeballs. It doesn't hurt to take them with
 a grain of salt, including Cooper. Lawyers likewise.
 
 Cooper gets details wrong from time to time. I haven't
 seen one TV report or read one print story that is
 completely accurate.
 
 BP is a rotten company, and I hope they get what's
 coming to them. But that doesn't mean everything
 they do is wrong or that all their intentions are
 evil or that there are huge conspiracies between
 them and the government. As with everything else in
 the world, there are shades of gray.

Re: [FairfieldLife] Imams issue adult breast-feeding fatwa!

2010-06-07 Thread gullible fool



From the article: 
 
One of the two men found in her house, Fahd, told the police that Sawadi 
breast-fed him as a baby so he was considered a son and had a right to be 
there. But in a later court ruling, a judge said it could not be proved that 
Fahd was her breast milk son. Fahd was sentenced to four months in prison and 
40 lashes, and the man who accompanied him got six months and 60 lashes.

Looks like they would do well to institute some sort of an official 
ceremony, like other religions use baptisms and confirmations and bar mitzvahs, 
to record the blessed event. Perhaps a court of clerics could witness 
the breast feeding and file an official certificate and get it notarized. 
Perhaps the lucky recipient could be branded with the name of the donating 
woman, along with a Grade A. On second thought, it is probably the donor who 
should be branded Grade A.
 
Such a brand certainly could have saved Fahd from his four months and 40 lashes.
 
Just some thoughts from a sarcastic area of the US. Thanks for the laugh, Hugo.

To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com
Date: Monday, June 7, 2010, 9:31 AM




A fatwa issued recently about adult breast-feeding to establish maternal 
relations and preclude the possibility of sexual contact has resulted in a 
week's worth of newspaper headlines in Saudi Arabia. Some have found the debate 
so bizarre that they're calling for stricter regulations about how and when 
fatwas should be issued. 

Sheikh Al Obeikan, an adviser to the royal court and consultant to the Ministry 
of Justice, set off a firestorm of controversy recently when he said on TV that 
women who come into regular contact with men who aren't related to them ought 
to give them their breast milk so they will be considered relatives.

The man should take the milk, but not directly from the breast of the woman, 
Al Obeikan said, according to Gulf News. He should drink it and then becomes a 
relative of the family, a fact that allows him to come in contact with the 
women without breaking Islam's rules about mixing.

Obeikan said the fatwa applied to men who live in the same house or come into 
contact with women on a regular basis, except for drivers.

Al Obeikan, who made the statement after being asked on TV about a 2007 fatwa 
issued by an Egyptian scholar about adult breast-feeding, said that the breast 
milk ought to be pumped out and given to men in a glass. 

But his remarks were followed by an announcement by another high-profile sheik, 
Abi Ishaq Al Huwaini, who said that men should suckle the breast milk directly 
from a woman's breast.

Shortly after the two sheiks weighed in on the matter, a bus driver in the 
country's Eastern Region reportedly told one of the female teachers whom he 
drives regularly that he wanted to suckle milk from her breast. The teacher has 
threaten to file a lawsuit against him.


Just in case you thought I made it up:

[FairfieldLife] What the Market's 'Big Red Flag' Is Telling Us

2010-06-05 Thread gullible fool


 
http://seekingalpha.com/article/208120-what-the-market-s-big-red-flag-is-telling-us
 

Since July 2009, I’ve been harping about high frequency trading programs 
(HFTPs) and the risks inherent in letting the financial markets be dominated by 
computer trading (as if October 1987 and the Long Term Capital Crisis didn’t 
prove this point already).
 
If you’re unfamiliar with HFTPs, for starters you should know that most indexes 
or exchanges offer a 1/4 of a penny rebate for broker dealers who put in 
orders. So simply putting in an order, even if there’s no profit to be made, 
can make a 1/4 of a penny in profit.
 
The way these trading programs work is as follows. Let’s say an institutional 
investor has put in an order to buy 15,000 shares of XYZ company between $10.00 
and $10.07. The institution’s buy program is designed to make this order 
without pushing up the stock price, so it buys the shares in chunks of 100 or 
so (often it also advertises to the index how many shares are left in the 
order).
 
First it buys 100 shares at $10.00. That order clears, so the program buys 
another 200 shares at $10.01. That clears, so the program buys another 500 
shares at $10.03. At this point an HFTP will recognize an institutional 
investor is putting in a large staggered order.
 
The trading program then begins front-running the institutional investor. So it 
puts in an order for 100 shares at $10.04. Whoever was selling shares to the 
institutional investor would obviously rather sell at a higher price (even if 
it’s just a penny). So this investor sells his or her shares to the trading 
program at $10.04. The trading program turns around and sells its shares to the 
institutional investor for $10.04 (which was the institution’s next price 
anyway).
 
In this way, the trading program makes 1/2 a penny (one 1/4 for buying and one 
1/4 for selling) AND makes the institutional trader pay a penny more on the 
shares. It doesn’t seem like much, but do this billions of times a day and 
you’ve got some serious profits.

 
As Goldman (GS) and JP Morgan’s (JPM) latest trading records show (both had 
flawless quarters without a single losing day), this activity can be absurdly 
profitable. However, for those on the other end of these trades (everyone), 
this is essentially stealing. The only reason that it is tolerated is because 
HFTPs are supposedly supplying liquidity to the markets.
 
How’d that work out on May 6, 2010?
 
As far as I can see it, there are two core problems with HFTPs (aside from the 
stealing, 
front-running, and other illegal activity that is permitted with impunity). 
They are:

There is no requirement for them to remain active in the markets. 
Because they’re based on correlations, they inevitably will blow up.
Regarding #1, HFTPs publicly claim that they provide the benefit of liquidity 
to the market. But the reality is that there is no law that requires them to 
stay “in the game.” So when the market dives and their algorithms blow up, 
these guys can simply pull the plug, resulting in a bid-less market: a market 
in which no buy orders are issued.
A market like this:

Regarding #2, ultimately HFTP algorithms (no matter how complicated) are based 
on correlations (the relationships between various investment classes). That 
is, these programs are based on linear thinking (if A, then B type thinking). 
Because of this, invariably they all blow up because at some point or another, 
the correlations they follow decouple and they end up on the wrong side of the 
trade.
 
When this happens, you begin to see wild volatility with massive up and down 
days. We saw this in August 2007 when the credit markets jammed up. And we’re 
seeing it again lately.

Look at the massive spikes and collapses in the SP 500 futures markets in the 
last week.
 
We’re talking about 3-5% moves occurring almost on a daily basis. This is 
exactly the kind of market action we saw back in mid-to-late 2007 when the 
markets began to move wildly as various quant funds got caught on the wrong 
side of trades and were forced to buy or sell entire chunks of the market 
wholesale.
 
This, taken along with what happened on May 6, 2010, should be a BIG RED FLAG 
to all market participants. You don’t get 3-5% moves every day based on 
fundamentals. You get this when the market is busted, overrun by parasitic 
trading programs whose correlation-based algorithms are blowing up.
 
In light of this, the following are clear:

Volatility is not going away any time soon. 
The market has very likely entered Round Two of the Financial Crisis. 
Long-only investors should seriously consider taking their money off the table.
For those of you who are passive investors (the long-term buy and hold), it is 
very likely a good time to be moving to cash or high quality blue chip 
holdings. The insane rally of 2009-early 2010 should be seen for what it is: a 
gift from Ben Bernanke before the second wave of deflation takes us back to the 
March 2009

I take it the suggestion was not made because you and Traci have mutual 
friends. Once in a while, I get a suggestion where there are no mutual friends, 
but most suggestions are ones with mutual friends. It look like the second tier 
of suggestions is those who share an interest. Like if I am in a bunch of Amma

Re: [FairfieldLife] The Lost finale 30-second button workout

2010-05-25 Thread gullible fool





Didn't work, but I have a different DVR, a DCX3400, which could be why. I just 
called Comcast and mentioned this hack and the tech person said she knew 
nothing about it but would research it and call me back. In past calls, Comcast 
was always pretty much useless about the change to the skip feature. The last 
person I talked with before today at least knew about how it had changed, but 
the first person denied it ever had the feature and, believe it or not, even 
denied Comcast even had the ability to perform a remote update to all their 
DVRs to reprogram something like that. Some of these techs are pretty 
useless. It's the backwards one that I wanted restored. I didn't even know 
there was a forward one until the single knowledgeable tech person mentioned 
it. 
 
Of course, I did mention how a short skip is available with Dish Network and 
how I wanted to eventually switch to them. Good to know Dish has it, because I 
do want to switch to them eventually, anyways, for the unlimited DVR storage.
 
My DVR is the latest, with 160 GB of storage. Less reliable than the 80 GB one, 
though.

Google is your friend.  Did you try DCX3400 30 second skip as a search 
term?  There are a bunch of articles on it.  Apparently you program the 
remote for the DCX a little differently.
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r22649316-DVR-DCX3400-30-Second-Skip-Forward

The DCX has an MPEG-4 decoder in it.  I would wonder if your OnDemand 
might look better because they may know it is a DCX and will use an 
MPEG-4 stream which requires less bandwidth yet be less likely to 
pixelate.  HBO supplies Comcast MP4 streams which Comasts re-encodes to 
MPEG-2.  Treme has a lot of dark and night scenes in it and those 
re-encodes make darker and harder to see.  Most of the Comcast HD DVRs 
are still the older 3412s and 3416 which can only decode MPEG-2.  Dish 
and DirectTV already use MPEG-4.

Eventually Comcast will move to IPTV which works more like the Internet. 
Instead of sending out a bunch of channels when you select a channel the 
request goes to a server which switches to that stream.  ATT's U-Verse, 
which is also available in my neighborhood, does this.  I would suspect 
Comcast would still send out the basic channels but everything else 
would be IPTV.

Re: [FairfieldLife] Facebook Question

2010-05-25 Thread gullible fool



Sure, if someone wants to set up a dozen different accounts, all he needs is a 
dozen different email addresses. He can put any name on any account and any pic 
he can upload as a profile pic, though Facebook does not approve of copyright 
infringement. One way to try to protect against it is to adjust the account 
privacy settings so that fewer people can see the friend list. The options are: 
'Everyone', 'Friends of Friends', 'Friends Only', and 'Customize'. Customize 
allows one to enter names or a list of names in either a 'Make this visible to' 
list, or a 'Hide this from' list, or both. For instance, if you were the person 
concerned and you restricted your friend list to 'Friends Only', then I would 
still have access to your friend list and Rory would still have access to your 
friend list, because we are friends, but if LB were not one of your friends, 
then he would not be able to view your friend list. Some detective work can get 
around the
 restriction to some degree, like if the perpetrator looked at my profile, he 
would be able to see we are friends and add me to the list of people he wants 
to try to fool into thinking he is you...he would be able to see we are friends 
if he browses through my friend list because I open my friend list to 
eveeryone.

I think it's legitimate. I don't think most phonies would go into such detail 
filling out a bogus Facebook page, plus his page has got some high-level TM 
people on the friends list, people I think would find out pretty quickly if it 
were not legitimate and some of whom might even have contacted him or his 
office before accepting the invitation.
 
The Bio is pretty much word for word what is on the MUM website, which makes me 
think his assistant may have done much of the work in creating his page:
 
http://www.mum.edu/admin/trustees.html
 
Bevan is on wikipedia. It says there were 7,000 on the Utopia course. That 
sounds low. There were claims during the course that 8,000+ were flying 
together at times.

Rick -- and he's still never told us how he came to hear
about Ravi and choose him for one of his interviews --
He's been an intermittent contributor to the Amma chat group (which, like FFL 
and the TMO, is not affiliated with her organization), and he always seemed 
reasonable and sane to me. When I started the BatGap chat group, I mentioned it 
there and he joined. He wasn't an obsessive poster, but he occasionally 
mentioned an awakening he had had, or was in the process of having, and he 
seemed genuine and articulate, so I decided to interview him. Keep in mind that 
from my perspective, there are many stages or degrees of awakening, and I don't 
consider anyone I've interviewed to have undergone them all, if that's even 
possible.

gave him a platform from which to announce his awakening.
Rick's -- and others' -- first impulse was to *defend*
his supposed normal enlightened status rather than be
concerned, which they almost certainly would have been
given anyone else spouting such craziness. 
I did? I seldom use the word enlightened. Implies too final an attainment. 
The *secondary*
impulse we've been seeing here, in my opinion, is a bout
of protect the guru, with any responsibility being
not only shifted away from Amma and her organization,
but taking it as an opportunity to write bhaktied-out
love poems for her. 
Do you think Amma and her organization should be held responsible for someone 
like Ravi. If so, explain to me the logistics of how that would work - how the 
mental health of hundreds of thousands of people could be monitored. As it was, 
Anatol and I both emailed the head of Amma's US organization, and he said he'd 
tell Amma. What more should or could have been done? 
And now Ravi's interview has quietly
been disappeared from the list, so as not to somehow
cast questions upon the other interviews, and on the
whole concept of ordinary enlightenment. 
I removed it. I think each interview stands on it's own, but if I were one of 
the people interviewed, I might feel uncomfortable about being associated with 
someone who was acting as Ravi has been. In light of Ravi's behavior, I didn't 
think it appropriate to post his interview, both for the BatGap's reputation 
and for Ravi's well-being. I don't think it's healthy for him to get any more 
attention or to have anything reinforce his notion that he is a guru. 
By my definition, a spiritual awakening does not preclude a subsequent mental 
breakdown. In fact, it may precipitate one if one is unprepared for it. Ravi 
had done little or no spiritual practice. If this was a Kundalini awakening, 
and not just a bi-polar episode, he was unprepared for it. His ego appropriated 
it and went hog-wild.

It seems like the Wilton Windmill circle could be decoded by using the windmill 
itself as a key. We got 4 crossings of the windmill... so the 12 sections of 
the crop circle become 3 main groups. Each ASCII row of the 3 groups become a 
byte. Possibly leading to a deeper level to decode. The crop circle is spinning 
clockwise - so that might be the direction to read the code from section to 
section. As the crop circle might be connected to the windmill as a key to 
decode it, the angle of the entry section is probably the same angle of the 
stairs of the windmill (props to pjw). It also seems to have a DNA connection 
as there are 4 elements used in each section (no line, left line, right line 
and left + right line) just like the 4 basic elements of the DNA: Adenine, 
Thymine, Guanine, Cytosine. Leaving further decoding to all gr8 researchers out 
there ;-)

I would think that again our ancient roots are of high importance here. After 
the other three formations at the ancient sites it seems that ancestral culture 
might be the crop circle-theme for 2010.

 
 

This new formation seems to contain the old Ogham writing. I show two examples 
of the alphabet here so that everybody can try to encipher the presumable code 
message. On my web-page (only Dutch unfortunately) you can find some more:

It's just a hunch, but I wouldn't be one bit surprised if this somehow relates 
to the fact that we have just created actual artificial life for the first 
time. For those that missed it - just Google it. It's been all over the news on 
the 22nd - same date. This one from the BBC - science_and_environment 
For the first time ever, we are truly playing God , was the quote from one 
of the scientists. Artificially created DNA was placed in a separate bacteria 
and we literally created a new organism. 
Now, if the circle makers saw enough importance and relevance in the Swine Flu 
virus to give us an impression of that last year, how much more important is 
the fact that we have now created life and made ourselves like unto God? 
Virtual gods, as it were. To quote Dr Frankenstein, It lives! It lives! 
Scary stuff... Without a doubt. And a bona fide milestone. 
Such a step might surely elicit comment from our friends, it is more than 
reasonable to suspect.

a real urge to do this - to stack them, one on top of the other. I don't know 
why. 
And I also see, not slices, but rays emanating out from the centre and a 
curious 3D effect, I think. I also want very much to spin it. To centre Andreas

[FairfieldLife] Iranian cleric blames quakes on promiscuous women

2010-04-20 Thread gullible fool



  
Women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for 
earthquakes, an Iranian cleric says. 
  
Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi, the acting Friday prayer leader in Tehran, said 
women should stick to strict codes of modesty to protect themselves.
 
Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery 
in society which increases earthquakes, he explained. 
 
Tens of thousands of people have died in Iran earthquakes in the last decade. 
 
Mr Sediqi was delivering a televised sermon at the Tehran University campus 
mosque last Friday on the need for a general repentance by Iranians when he 
warned of a prevalence of degeneracy. 
 
What can we do to avoid being buried under the rubble? There is no other 
solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam's moral 
codes, he said. 
 
'Disappoint God'
 
Correspondents say many young Iranians sometimes push the boundaries of how 
they can dress, showing hair under their headscarves or wearing tight-fitting 
clothes. 
 
Mr Sediqi also described the violence following last year's disputed 
presidential election - the result of which prompted thousands of people to 
hold mass protests - as a political earthquake. 
 
Now if a natural earthquake hits Tehran, no one will be able to confront such 
a calamity but God's power, only God's power. So lets not disappoint God. 
 
More than 25,000 people died when a powerful earthquake hit the ancient city of 
Bam in 2003. 
 
Seismologists have warned that the capital, Tehran, is situated on a large 
number of tectonic fault lines and could be hit by a devastating earthquake 
soon. 
 
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said many of Tehran's 12 million inhabitants 
should relocate. 
 
There are plans to build a purpose built new capital near Qom.

In case you wonder why President Obama, in last night's soulful State of the Union address, had to comment on the Supreme Court's recent 5-to-4 dangerous ruling giving giant corporations more control of our political process (guess which justices voted for it and which voted against it), and why progressives are so fired up about the GOP-appointed justices rulings 



--here's a brief, cogent and very pithy op-ed from Bobby Kennedy Jr. that a friend sent me. 

It's several years old, but now even more incisive and needed than ever!



[Note: bold-faceand italicsadded for emphasis and easier reading:]



Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. 
New York City – May 2, 2004 
 
What happens when you allow corporations to run our government? 
 
What you get is plunder. And I have to say this, the American people have to understand that there is a huge difference between free market capitalism, which is a good thing because it makes us more efficient, more prosperous, and more democratic, and the kind of corporate-crony capitalism which has been embraced by this (Bush)White House [and by the recent Jan. 2010 Supreme Court ruling]. 
 
The reason they shouldn’t be running our government is because corporations don’t want the same thing for America as Americans want. Corporations do not want free markets and they do not want democracy. They want profits and the best way for them to get the profits too often is to use our campaign financing system which is just a system of legalized bribery, to get their hooks into a public official, they use that public official to dismantle the market place, to give them monopoly control, and then to privatize the commons, to turn over our Treasury, our air, our water, our public lands, our wildlife, our fishery, the shared resource of our society that give context to our community, that connects us to our past, that are the source of our values and our virtues and our character as a
 people, and we are turning that over, for profit, to these corporations. 
 
We have to remember this, legally corporations cannot do good things. They cannot do true philanthropy, they can’t do things that are good for our country or for our community. When you see Wal-Mart bringing bottled water down to the Katrina victims, they’re not doing that to be good guys, they’re doing it because they think that over the long run the public view of them will be enhanced and that that will enhance their shareholder value and their dividend distribution. If they have another reason for doing it, any one of their shareholders can sue them and they will win that lawsuit. It is called wasting corporate
 assets. It is against the law in this country for a corporation to turn itself into a philanthropy. And if they’re caught doing it their board members will be punished and their shareholders can sue them. 
 
We want corporations to be this way, to focus narrowly. We don’t want them to turn into philanthropies because nobody would invest in them. We want them to focus narrowly on shareholder value. 
 
BUT, we would be nuts to let them anywhere near our government because we designed them to plunder and that’s what they’re going to do to us if we let them run our country. That’s what they’re doing now. 
 
That’s why from the beginning of our national history, our greatest political leaders, Republicans and Democrats, have been warning Americans against the domination of corporate power. 
 
Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican, said that America would never be destroyed by a foreign enemy, by an Osama bin Laden, but he warned that our Bill of Rights, our Constitution and our treasured democratic institutions would be subverted by malefactors of great wealth who would steal them from within. 
 
Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican, in his most famous speech ever warned Americans against a domination by the military industrial complex. 
 
Abraham Lincoln, the greatest Republican in history, said during the height of the Civil War in 1863, “I have the South in front of me and I have the bankers behind me and for my country I fear the bankers more.” [Note from T.Conway: 

Lincoln's many warnings against the corrupt power of corporations and bankers are more ample than most people know, and really prescient! He was, for instance, really angry at the corporations that badly cut corners in production: 1) The gun-manufacturers whose carelessly-built rifles blew up in the faces of Union

Here are some criteria. If anyone knows of anything, please let me know:

Regarding the UK, we are looking for a venue with a capacity of300-500.
Adya plans to teach two week nights and both Sat and Sunday afternoons
(which makes churches challenging in terms of availability on Sun)
We don't care about the specific location as long as it's in or around
London and accessible via public transportation.

Price range is $300-600/evening, $2,000-$3,000 for a weekend event. We
realize that
in the UK the US $ is weak and we will need to pay 50% higher in rental
costs.

Simple. It runs contrary to the image that Maharishi
and the TM organization have tried to paint of him
for many, many years. And not only him -- Raja Ram,
King Tony, whatever you want to call him -- ALL
of the people in the TM organization you were sup-
posed to admire the most and place on the highest
pedestal. That includes Guru Dev, Maharishi himself,
the guys on Purusha, and the women on Mother Divine.

ALL have been portrayed as -- and their spiritual worth
or power as based on or derived from -- having one all-
important characteristic or quality or attribute. I think
that rather than describe it in a thousand words, one 
photo will convey the idea better:



Note the lack of genitals? Note that Mother Divine...uh...
I mean Barbie does not even have *nipples*? 

Face it, this *IS* how the TM organization has attempted
to characterize its best and brightest over the years. 
They have been presented as if celibacy were not only
their lifestyle, but as if no other lifestyle were *possible*
for them. It couldn't be...they have no genitals. 

This was even *officially* confirmed in King Ken's...uh...
I mean Raja Ram's book relating Vedic philosopy to 
human physiology. There were no genitals in that view 
of evolved physiology, either.

So the shocker in all of this is NOT that Da King has 
a couple of rugrats. It's that he had the tools with which
to create them. TM movement PR has implied for many,
many years now that his crotch was as smooth as Ken's.
And now people know that not only does it have pokey-
out parts, his Barbie of choice has someplace to *put*
the pokey-out parts. Shocking.

Do we know that it's paid for out of movement funds?
   
   Didn't he get his weight in gold from the movement?
  
  Only to fund his research.
 
 Which takes place in his condo.  Funding to have a nice quiet place to work.  
   
 
 Ah, who knows.  Could be that the movement owns the condo, given the

 that his wife is rich.  Or he gets paid a huge salary and has a mortgage to

He comes from a wealthy or at least well to do family doesn't he?  

And a $million mortgage is only $5000 or so a month. Hardly a fraction of the

His wife is an interesting question mark. As is Paris. Why Paris? The TMO seems

wife is from Paris. And Tony promised her he would set up home in Paris. The 
condo may be more to her standards than his. And if has has such tastes, 
perhaps she also has family (or stock options from a quick stint in IPO land). 
All speculation -- but wife an Paris are interesting parts of the puzzle.  

AND if he was really going to do the vedic raja thing, a huge dowry would be 
mandatory. Voila.

[FairfieldLife] For Some in Japan, Home Is a Tiny Plastic Bunk

2010-01-02 Thread gullible fool



 
TOKYO — For Atsushi Nakanishi, jobless since Christmas, home is a cubicle 
barely bigger than a coffin — one of dozens of berths stacked two units high in 
one of central Tokyo’s decrepit “capsule” hotels. 
 
“It’s just a place to crawl into and sleep,” he said, rolling his neck and 
stroking his black suit — one of just two he owns after discarding the rest of 
his wardrobe for lack of space. “You get used to it.”
 
When Capsule Hotel Shinjuku 510 opened nearly two decades ago, Japan was just 
beginning to pull back from its bubble economy, and the hotel’s tiny plastic 
cubicles offered a night’s refuge to salarymen who had missed the last train 
home.
 
Now, Hotel Shinjuku 510’s capsules, no larger than 6 1/2 feet long by 5 feet 
wide, and not tall enough to stand up in, have become an affordable option for 
some people with nowhere else to go as Japan endures its worst recession since 
World War II.
 
Once-booming exporters laid off workers en masse in 2009 as the global economic 
crisis pushed down demand. Many of the newly unemployed, forced from their 
company-sponsored housing or unable to make rent, have become homeless. 
 
The country’s woes have led the government to open emergency shelters over the 
New Year holiday in a nationwide drive to help the homeless. The Democratic 
Party, which swept to power in September, wants to avoid the fate of the 
previous pro-business government, which was caught off-guard when unemployed 
workers pitched tents near public offices last year to call attention to their 
plight. 
 
“In this bitter-cold New Year’s season, the government intends to do all it can 
to help those who face hardship,” Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama said in a video 
posted Dec. 26 on YouTube. “You are not alone.” 
 
On Friday, he visited a Tokyo shelter housing 700 homeless people, telling 
reporters that “help can’t wait.”
 
Mr. Nakanishi considers himself relatively lucky. After working odd jobs on an 
Isuzu assembly line, at pachinko parlors and as a security guard, Mr. 
Nakanishi, 40, moved into the capsule hotel in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district in 
April to save on rent while he worked night shifts at a delivery company.
 
Mr. Nakanishi, who studied economics at a regional university, dreams of 
becoming a lawyer and pores over legal manuals during the day. But with no job 
since Christmas, he does not know how much longer he can afford a capsule bed.
 
The rent is surprisingly high for such a small space: 59,000 yen a month, or 
about $640, for an upper bunk. But with no upfront deposit or extra utility 
charges, and basic amenities like fresh linens and free use of a communal bath 
and sauna, the cost is far less than renting an apartment in Tokyo, Mr. 
Nakanishi says.
 
Still, it is a bleak world where deep sleep is rare. The capsules do not have 
doors, only screens that pull down. Every bump of the shoulder on the plastic 
walls, every muffled cough, echoes loudly through the rows. 
 
Each capsule is furnished only with a light, a small TV with earphones, coat 
hooks, a thin blanket and a hard pillow of rice husks. 
 
Most possessions, from shirts to shaving cream, must be kept in lockers. There 
is a common room with old couches, a dining area and rows of sinks. Cigarette 
smoke is everywhere, as are security cameras. But the hotel staff does its best 
to put guests at ease: “Welcome home,” employees say at the entrance.
 
“Our main clients used to be salarymen who were out drinking and missed the 
last train,” said Tetsuya Akasako, head manager at the hotel. 
 
But about two years ago, the hotel started to notice that guests were staying 
weeks, then months, he said. This year, it introduced a reduced rent for 
dwellers of a month or longer; now, about 100 of the hotel’s 300 capsules are 
rented out by the month. 
 
After requests from its long-term dwellers, the hotel received special 
government permission to let them register their capsules as their official 
abode; that made it easier to land job interviews.
 
At 2 a.m. on one recent December night, two young women watched the American 
television show “24” on a TV inside the sauna. One said she had traveled to 
Tokyo from her native Gunma, north of the city, to look for work. She intended 
to be a hostess at one of the capital’s cabaret clubs, where women engage in 
conversation with men for a fee. 
 
The woman, 20, said she was hoping to land a job with a club that would put her 
up in an apartment. She declined to give her name because she did not want her 
family to know her whereabouts. 
 
“It’s tough to live like this, but it won’t be for too long,” she said. “At 
least there are more jobs here than in Gunma.” 
 
The government says about 15,800 people live on the streets in Japan, but aid 
groups put the figure much higher, with at least 10,000 in Tokyo alone. Those 
numbers do not count the city’s “hidden” homeless, like those who live in 
capsule hotels. There is also a floating population that sleeps overnight

Oh. They do that now.

Wall Street Meditation Group Cuts Landmark Building Price 33%




By Oshrat Carmiel
Dec. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Followers of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi have cut the 
asking price for their Wall Street Center for transcendental meditation by 33 
percent, offering the landmark building for $30 million as sales of Manhattan 
commercial real estate plummet.
The 15,000 square foot (1,400 square meter) neo-Classical, five-story building 
at 70 Broad St., two blocks south of Wall Street, was first listed for sale in 
September for $45 million, according to StreetEasy.com, a property listing 
service. 
It is owned by the non-profit Global Country of World Peace, which bought the 
Financial District property for $5.5 million in May 2004, according to city 
records. The Iowa-based group used the city’s backing in 2005 to obtain $6.2 
million in financing through tax-exempt bonds. The group uses the building to 
teach meditation. 
“The property just underwent a spectacular renovation and is truly in mint 
condition,” reads the property listing by Danielle Grossenbacher of brokerage 
Brown Harris Stevens. “A flexible zoning allows residential, office, retail and 
hotel use.” 
Grossenbacher didn’t immediately return a phone call for comment. 
The 70 Broad building was completed in 1908 and is a New York City landmark. It 
was built by architects Kirby, Petit  Green and was the headquarters for the 
American Bank Note Co. 
The building’s lower level and first two floors are being used as offices, 
according to the property listing. The top three floors are configured as a 
two-bedroom, two-bathroom residences. One of the luxury apartments inside the 
building is sometimes used by John Hagelin, a board member at Global Country of 
World Peace, who was the Natural Law Party’s 1996 and 2000 candidate for U.S. 
president. 
Hagelin confirmed the planned sale of the building in September. He is also a 
chairman of the Center for Leadership Performance, a tenant at 70 Broad that 
teaches meditation to business professionals and chief executives. 
Hagelin didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail today seeking comment. 
Dropping Values 
The median sale price for Manhattan offices, rental apartments and retail space 
fell 32 percent in the first nine months of this year, with the median for 
office properties dropping 62 percent, brokerage Massey Knakal Realty Services 
said in an Oct. 13 report. The borough had 209 commercial property deals with 
an aggregate sale price of $3.2 billion, the lowest level of transactions in 
the 26 years of data compiled by Massey Knakal. 
Global Country of World Peace describes its mission as establishing world peace 
“by unifying all nations in happiness prosperity, invincibility, and perfect 
health,” according to its tax filings. 
While the group “could absolutely not be happier” with the building, a sale 
would benefit the non-profit’s charitable mission, Hagelin said in September. 
“Financial resources at that level would be a huge boost to us in fulfilling 
our various goals,” he said.

Re: [FairfieldLife] Airlines overreact to alleged bombing attempt

2009-12-26 Thread gullible fool


 
According to this article, the terrorist claimed to have acted on instructions 
from al-Qaida to detonate the explosive device over U.S. soil:
 
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091226/ap_on_go_ot/us_new_terror_threat;_ylt=AtqW5PiM5SNRdmfypPebc0Z2wPIE;_ylu=X3oDMTE1dm5odmdpBHBvcwMxBHNlYwN5bi1jaGFubmVsBHNsawNmYWlsZWRjaHJpc3Q
 
For a flight from Paris to Detroit, that would require detonating very close to 
landing, since the plane would be coming in from the northeast and would be 
spending more time over Canada than over the US, not entering US airspace until 
within an hour, and possibly much less than an hour, of landing. So, wth the 
new lame measures being taken, all the next terrorist needs to do is to attempt 
to detonate over the ocean before the last hour of flight, like the  shoe 
bomber did, or board a flight to a US airport further south, such as LAX or 
Dallas-Fort Worth, and detonate 61 minutes or more before landing.

Better hope you don't have a diarrhea attack within an hour of landing 
on your next plane flight.  The airlines goofy over this alleged bombing 
attempt have implemented a rule that an hour before landing you can't 
leave your seat.  Apparently some are even saying you can't even have 
any carry-on items in your lap during that time.  Really shows you the 
intelligence of management of the airlines which is why they are doing 
so poorly.  They kowtow to the security theater people who dream up this 
kind of stuff.

As the story unfolds on the 23 year old kid my bet is he has no real 
connection to any terrorist group especially Al-Qaeda but is just a nut 
case.  That is apparently what his dad fears.  But the fascists will use 
any excuse to put fear into the public to control them.  My bet is that 
airlines from other countries won't bother with such rules.

becoming very frustrated with the no haggle attitude

I'll just go out and catch my own alligator so I can

means, be my guest. Maybe you'll luck out and catch
yourself a really big one! Determined, the blonde
turned and headed for the swamps, set on catching
herself an alligator. Later in the day, the shopkeeper
was driving home when he heard what sounded like a
shotgun being fired. He looked over by the nearby
swamp and spotted the young woman who had been in his
shop just a few hours earlier standing waist deep in
the water, shotgun in hand. The shopkeeper stopped his
car and began watching in amazement. Suddenly, he saw
a huge 11-foot alligator swimming quickly towards her.
She took aim, shot the creature and with a great deal
of effort hauled it onto the swamp bank. Laying nearby
were several more of the dead creatures. At this 
point, the shopkeeper decided to get out of his car
and approach the blonde. He asked, What in the world
is going on here? Just then, the blonde flipped the
11-foot alligator on its back and, frustrated, shouted
out, This one isn't wearing any shoes either!

It's been a fine birthday on a fine, chilly-but-sunny

to lunch at a favorite restaurant, for which in return I
received the wonderful present of being able to play with
11-month-old Maya. Afterwards I took a long walk along 
the beach with my dogs and watched one of those sunsets
that makes you want to applaud and shout Author!

Then I came home and, before heading out for the evening,
cranked up the stereo and played the song that I listen
to every birthday, to remind me both that I don't have
an infinite number of them, and that that's OK. It's as

Child Of The Wind
by Bruce Cockburn, 24 December 1989

I love the pounding of hooves
I love engines that roar
I love the wild music of waves on the shore
And the spiral perfection of a hawk when it soars
I love my sweet woman down to the core

There's roads and there's roads
And they call, can't you hear it?
Roads of the earth
And roads of the spirit
The best roads of all
Are the ones that aren't certain
One of those is where you'll find me
Till they drop the big curtain

    Hear the wind moan
    In the bright diamond sky
    These mountains are waiting
    Brown-green and dry

    But I'll use it anyway
    I'll be a child of the wind
    Till the end of my days

Little round planet
In a big universe
Sometimes it looks blessed
Sometimes it looks cursed
Depends on what you look at obviously
But even more it depends on the way that you see

    These mountains are waiting

 The first part shows what it would look like from
 space; but the best part shows how the rings would
 appear from various locations on the surface,
 including at night.
 
 One thing the animation doesn't show that I'd love
 to see is what it would look like with the rings
 directly in front of the sun.
 
 Would make a great science fiction story: how would
 the earth's mythology and even history have been
 affected if the planet had rings?

It would be taken for granted like all the other wonders of the present world 
and people would still be saying, Do you think there is a God? (An 
intelligent designer) 

It's a great illustration showing how premeditated the movements of the earth 
really are.

Re: [FairfieldLife] Re: The Old Cambridge TM Center

2009-10-27 Thread gullible fool

 
Nah, I am not John Hagelin. :) John Hagelin was a big part of the Cambridge TM 
center and had this great energy about him during the sidhis program and I 
still have a lot of admiration for him., but I am not John. Rick can confirm 
that, having seen me at several Amma darshans in Marlboro, MA in the last 
several years. I actually knew Rick a bit when he was on a vedic atom team 
stationed at the Cambridge center decades ago, but he likely did not know me by 
name many years later when we discussed adding a new moderator. I had 
many fulfilling experiences at the Cambridge TM center and made lots of 
friends, some of whom I run into at an Amma darshan now and then and one (he 
used to post here) that I am connected with through Facebook.
 
Just three months after the center was closed, I began getting into some 
different techniques (it had been nothing but the TM sidhis and third degree 
reiki up until then), and I felt easier about learning these OTP techniques 
what with the center just having closed down and my not even being a governor. 
The end result has worked out very well for me and I would not change a thing 
about what I have done for growth since July 1998.
 
I should have added this last night, that I do not know of any TM teaching 
activity going on in this area anymore.
 
By the way, I prefer gullible fool without the capitals. I don't see it as my 
handle, but as a generic term.   
   
Love will swallow you, eat you up completely, until there is no `you,' only 
love.

 Dear Gullible fool,
 
 Is one of the things I do like about FFL as a place in the meditating 
 community,that every once in a while someone pops up with a voice of `someone 
 who was actually there'.  
 
  Dear Gullible whoever you are, I am sorry for you personally for your 
 knowing like this and having had to carry this sorry event in life.


Am told by e-mail on the side, that anonymous 'Gullible Fool' here is really 
John Hagelin.  Spose it is possible, Raja and moderator of FFL.  He would have 
been around Cambridge TM in those times.



  Like witnessing in life a war atrocity of a kind.  I once heard a WWII war 
combat veteran remark that in war as in battle the victor is often the side 
that makes the fewest mistakes.  Sounds like you witnessed a big mistake and 
loss.  It is poignant, like the song tune and lyrics.

Dunno, Doug. I suspect it's gone. I had dinner 
last night with a couple who learned TM in Boston, 
and they referred to a one-room Center, which must 
be this place:

By the way, the man was thrilled with his 
benefits. He credited just four days of TM
with eliminating his ADD, which he felt 
threatened his career. He's a PhD candidate 
in orthopedics. He reviewed the TM science 
before learning, and liked what he saw.

Any person who knowingly violates an order for isolation or quarantine shall be

a scare of Swine Flu back in the 1970s and some folks came down with 
terrible side effects including paralysis.  Most folks here are into 
natural medicine and probably don't want the vaccine.  I've never had a 
flu shot and also can't remember the last time I've got the flu.  Like 
most yogis here I notice immediately when a bug is trying to invade and 
do the usual things to boot it out of my system.  We don't know what is 
in these vaccines but they may be using things like mercury.  The 
vaccine is also untested on humans.  Do you really want this junk in 
your body?  

Hopefully this pandemic is nothing but nonsense and will never occur nor 
the mass vaccinations.  But it is estimated that at least half of the US 
will refuse the vaccination.

I seem to recall my TM teacher saying that TM might make
one more sensitive, not necessarilyh cool as a cucumber.

Of course it's impossible to tell whether it's due to
years of fairly regular practice of TM or whatever,
but for instance my lungs are nowadays extremely sensitive
to even the smell of cigarette smoke from another apartment
through the structures or stuff.

(Before my initiation I often smoked quite a lot especially
during weekends when I was usually drunk as a cuckoo
(kännissä kuin käki)).

So, when I notice even the faintest smell of cigarette smoke,
my lungs downright start to ache. I recently noticed that
eating a lot of raw garlic somehow prevents my noticing
that smell, and - lo and behold - also prevents that nasty
feeling in my lungs.

I agree with most of what you say. He was quite determined from way back in 
around 1980 when he appeared on the scene to do whatever MMY asked him and 
more. In fact, this is the reason he gives (privately) that MMY chose him to be 
the  King - he always went the extra mile - including the Harvard debacle and 
the example you give below. 

This does not take away from his intellectual ability in my opinion - it is a 
character trait. 

In contrast, Chopra was asked to behave similarly and basically refused seeing 
what he was being asked to become.

 a logical argument. 
 
 His principle skill has been to cultivate favor with MMY and that is an area 
 where he was a genius. Evidence;- he together with David Orme-Johnson were 
 scheduled to speak at a conference on ethno-botany, i.e. medical herbs from a 
 scientists point of view. They were bringing the Ayurvedic point of view and 
 as is normal at these conferences had given the organizers abstracts of their 
 talks in advance. So people were expecting some serious scientists talking 
 intelligently about learning what ancient Indian culture knows about the 
 medical uses of plants. What they got was something completely different. TN 
 and DOJ turned up with a news film crew in tow so there could be a news 
 report on MAV presented at a scientific conference. They ignored their 
 abstracts and instead spoke about TM and the consciousness of plants, dissed 
 everyone connected with the event and left after their allotted lectures 
 without listening to other lectures or socializing with other
 participants. So the net result was strongly negative for the academic 
credibility of MIU (as it was then) and TM and MAV in general. But crucially TN 
had a video tape of himself giving a talk on MAV at a scientific conference 
which he could show to MMY, and report on a great success, rapturous audience 
and so on, the kind of thing MMY liked to hear. As far as TN was concerned that 
was the whole point of the exercise, not to spread knowledge and boost the 
standing of MIU, but to boost his own standing with MMY, even at the expense of 
the credibility of MIU. If you listen to TN's talks you'll notice that they're 
full of flattery and information free statements like this is such beautiful 
knowledge and not a lot else besides. 
 
 People who are eager to boost their own standing in the TMO at the expense of 
 the standing of the TMO in wider society should be regarded with deepest 
 suspicion.
 
 Although John and Tony are both very clever I'd identify the crucial 
 difference as being that John does at least have a clear exit route from 
 insanity. His ideas are open to being falsified and he'd have to change his 
 mind if better evidence came along which refuted unified field theories. 
 Tony's ideas are such a pile of elephant dung they're not even capable of 
 being falsified so his exit route from insanity is less clear. His theories 
 make no predictions, they're just a random collection of co-incidences with 
 no thread of explanation. The only falsification one can make is to point 
 that out, which is blindingly obvious to anyone with an appropriate education 
 but invisible to people in the TMO. His exit route from insanity is more 
 likely to come from a slow realization that dressing up as a king isn't a 
 good way to present the TMO to the public. As the number of people at the 
 court of Vlodrop decreases over the next 10 to 20 years he'll slowly realize
 something is wrong. Whereas John is likely to have to face up to reality when

I knew him many, many years and MMY had him marked out as someone MMY was very 
interested in grooming as soon as he finished his MD/PhD*.  One piece of data 
that I just recall which supports that: MMY arranged a TTC Phase 3 for Tony and 
just one other person. About two months  later, a regular (i.e. sufficient 
numbers of students) TTC began, and Tony and the other guy joined the newer one 
hearing the first two months of tapes over again. 

*Some people may remember that Tony then got a post-doctoral fellowship of some 
kind at Harvard and made the university _very_ unhappy when he attempted to 
have readers of some of his work  believe that Harvard supported some of his 
ideas.

 Hagelin is an interesting case. I think there is some part of him which is 
 dimly aware that he's spouting junk. All that time with proper scientists and 
 having to do hard calculations must have left an impression somewhere. He's 
 the one who has to work hardest to keep himself convinced of what he's saying 
 because he does have the intelligence and the training to work out that it's 
 garbage. The others, Bevan and Tony, don't have the intellect to appreciate 
 fine points of reason and logic.
 
 Hagelin keeps himself convinced by making lots of speeches to people who know 
 little or nothing about science and getting plenty of adulation from the 
 credulous. All these people think I'm wonderful therefore I must be right 
 is the rather distorted reasoning going on there. If he withdrew from the 
 adoring crowds and sat down with a pencil and paper to work things out he 
 might start having doubts
 
 Of the other characters, Tony is quite a mild mannered person, even if he 
 doesn't have the training and natural aptitude to spot that his ideas are 
 garbage, he does at least have the temperament to stop the wilder nutjobs at 
 Vlodrop getting too far out of sync with reality. Seeing as he wears a crown

Latin America enjoys rise of invincibility through remarkable expansion of 
Consciousness-Based Education  
by Global Good News staff writer

Global Good News    Translate This Article
25 July 2009

In Latin America, 170 educational institutions and 20 universities in 20 
countries are now implementing Consciousness-Based Education. Two thousand 
faculty members and 65,000 students have been trained in Transcendental 
Meditation, and training is now in process for 20,000 Yogic Flyers. 
Invincibility is gradually developing in the continent of Latin America as a 
whole. 

Speaking during the global celebration of Guru Purnima on 7 July in MERU, 
Holland, Raja Jose Luis Alvarez, Raja of Latin America for the Global Country 
of World Peace, reported on the remarkable achievements in his domain in the 
past year. 

He described this expansion of Consciousness-Based Education in Latin America 
and said that invincibility is gradually developing in Latin America as a 
whole, and especially in Colombia*, Bolivia, Peru, and Mexico. In the next few 
months Panama, Guatamala, Ecuador, Chile, Brazil, Venezuela, Guyana, and 
Suriname will also be rising to invincibility**. 

From many angles invincibility is rising, Raja Luis said; it started with 
education. On 22 August a webinar for educators will be held in 30 countries. 
Those taking part include 200-300 school principals and 25 vice-chancellors of 
universities. During this webinar they will put together a plan for 
introducing Consciousness-Based Education throughout the continent, in the 
Caribbean, and in some countries in Africa. There will also be a continental 
association and programme to support all the activities on a much greater 
scale. 

'Before we were doing it school by school,' Raja Luis explained. 'Now in some 
countries we have already contacted 200 schools' and also the authorities at 
the same time. 

He said that their approach continues to develop and expand: with the support 
of the International Foundation of Consciousness-Based Education for the 
curriculae, and great support from everyone, they intend to accomplish the 
establishment of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying 
everywhere in education. 

Raja Luis praised Dr Richard Tucker as a model of a Vice-Chancellor; as 
president of a group of universities, he is taking a leading role in making 
educators aware of the importance of Consciousness-Based Education.

From: 
 
http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2009/07/25/in_risky_field_suspicion_is_key_tool_officers_say/

 
In risky field, suspicion is key tool, officers say
 
The most terrifying confrontations often erupt out of the most mundane 
scenarios. An Arlington patrolman working a construction detail is suddenly 
confronted by a suicidal man who lunges for the officer’s gun. A Quincy 
sergeant trying to help a troubled man becomes his victim when the sergeant is 
pinned against a wall. A Wellesley officer is tackled by two men after he 
walked to their stopped car to see if they needed help.



 
Race has been the prevailing theme in the wake of Henry Louis Gates Jr.’s 
arrest at his Cambridge home, an incident that has triggered a national debate 
about whether the officer overreacted when he placed the prominent Harvard 
University professor in handcuffs. But for many police officers, the encounter 
highlights a difficult balancing act they must perform each day as they try to 
bring the appropriate level of force to bear on inherently unpredictable 
situations.
 
Underestimating a seemingly routine call can be deadly. Overreacting can lead 
to accusations of civil rights violations, litigation, and physical harm to an 
innocent person.

 
From the busiest departments to the sleepiest towns, patrol officers, 
sergeants, and lieutenants all had similar stories of the times they relaxed 
too quickly around a suspect or after defusing a tense situation. Officers 
also spoke of the fear that can strike even veteran police officers when they 
respond to a domestic violence call or pull a vehicle over in a traffic stop. 
In an FBI analysis, 19 percent of the 57 officers killed by criminals in 2007 
had either just pulled someone to the side of the road or were trying to.

 
“There is always that feeling of, ‘Is this going to be more than the soccer mom 
late for practice?’ ’’ said Walpole police Officer Jaclyn Hazeldine. “You don’t 
know who’s got what in the car, and you can’t let your guard down.’’

 
Terrence Cunningham was a young sergeant in Wellesley in 1995 when he spotted a 
stopped car on Route 9 about 2 in the morning. He saw two men inside and, 
thinking they had car trouble, pulled up behind them and began to walk to the 
vehicle. Immediately, they ran out of the car and grabbed him, punching and 
kicking at him. It turns out that they were the look-out guys for a third man 
stealing car parts from a nearby Dodge dealership. An off-duty Boston police 
officer rescued the sergeant, but Cunningham, now the department’s police 
chief, was reminded of one of the job’s most painful realities.

 
“You never know what’s going to happen,’’ he said. “You always have to have a 
plan. If this thing goes upside down, what are you going to do?’’

 
One evening in 1994, Deputy Superintendent William Gross of the Boston police 
and another officer drove to a Dorchester street to quell a parking dispute 
between two neighbors. The fight was quickly resolved, the two drivers shook 
hands, and Gross, then a patrolman, and his fellow officer struck up a 
conversation with gang unit officers who drove up to the scene. Seconds later, 
the new peace was shattered when shots rang out from an apartment building 
across the street. Gross rushed to the building, and, as he tried to get 
inside, he saw the gunman on the other side of the glass door, pointing a gun 
at him. Gross fired at him.

 
“You have seconds to react, just seconds,’’ said Gross. “That’s often what 
happens.’’ 



 
Gross missed the gunman, but when he dashed inside, through the smoke and haze, 
he saw a mortally wounded man slumped on the floor. Fifteen years later, Gross 
remains shaken by how that quiet night grew so violent so quickly.

 
“We had no idea we’d be involved in a police shooting,’’ Gross said. “We had no 
idea that once we gained access in the building, there would be a dead body in 
the hallway.’’


Police officers often have more to fear when they are pulling people over or 
responding to routine calls than when they are investigating a suspected bank 
robber or a killer, said Thomas Nolan, an associate professor of criminal 
justice at Boston University and a former Boston police officer.

 
“You just don’t know how something is going to affect someone or what the 
reaction is going to be from someone who is thrust into a situation,’’ Nolan 
said. “The frustration, the anger, the sentiment that ‘I’m being oppressed and 
discriminated against by this police officer.’ ’’

 
For their own safety, police must be suspicious of everyone, a quality that 
often rubs civilians the wrong way, many of the police officers said.

 
Hazeldine recalled going to a house after a security alarm went off. The 
homeowner was not there, but a concerned neighbor kept following Hazeldine 
around as she checked the house.

 
Worried that he might actually be the burglar, Hazeldine told the man to go 
home.

 
The alarm turned out to

The laws and procedure are taught in police academy but the how to's
are taught in less public venues.   One how to is in getting someone
who's wasting your time and ticking you off to make a fatal mistake.
Getting Gates out of the house was the best way to handle this
malefactor.  Just let him take his rants outside then arrest him for
creating a public disturbance.   Standard police procedure to settle a
score or speed up resolution of a problem.  Crowley erred in arresting
a noted black scholar with a big mouth (not that a lot of black men
don't have big mouths when it comes to dealing with the law).

There's the unusual turn of events of a black professor/scholar and a
white blue collar guy involved here.

Obama's no fool.  He sized up what had gone on.  Unlikely Gates lives
in a rundown lean to in a rough neighborhood.   I am convinced, as is
my sheriff friend, that had this been a white male (Irish even better)
Crowley would have been a lot more accommodating, perhaps even asking
for backup to get someone to explain to Gates why this was the police
doing everything possible to protect /his/ property.  It's not a case
of Crowley acting illegally, it's a case of Crowley acting differently
than he would have with a white.

An equally important high lama, the last Karmapa, took an important role

But was he approved by the Dalai Lama?

Fine, and she is a Lama approoved by the Dalai Lama ? 

All lamas aren't approved by the Dalai Lama, they're approved of by their 
lineage and via their training and realization. Typically this means years of 
meditation experience, a rigorous series of preliminary practices and a three 
year, 3 month retreat using highly advanced techniques, at a minimum. An 
equally important high lama, the last Karmapa, took an important role in Pema 
Chödrön's ordination.

Here is what is confusing me about the Gates case.

I have heard commentators say that Gates was racially profiled by the 
policeman who came to his home.  Although Gates may have been profiled by the 
neighbor who made the initial call to police/911 that started this whole thing 
off, there certainly wasn't any racial profiling done on the part of the police 
officer that went to the house.

Why?  

Because race wasn't a consideration in determining whether Gates had 
committed an illegal act. The cop was already looking for a black male, as 
described by the neighbor.  Had a crime been committed and a black was stopped 
by a policeman on the street near where the crime was committed solely because 
of his skin color then, yes, this would have been racial profiling.  But in 
this case ONLY blacks were suspected because that is what the identity of the 
suspect was described as.



I sort of agree with shemp... I must be feeling worse than I thought.
What it definitely is, though, is a sad comment on our times
and our sense of community.  His own neighbor didn't recognize
him?  How sad is that.

It sounds like you may need a checking, Rick. Make sure it is by a re-certified

He is more fun to read than many others. I find his own unique and

Nabby too. Where would we be without Nabby? He's as much fun as a barrel of

 I remember seeing a tape of  that talk (or something
 very similar, where Doug was talking about VL) and
 remember thinking, even then, that the claims were
 so grandiose and vague that it was difficult to believe
 anything would ever come of them.
 
 
  That's what the movement was.  That's what kept us going.  That's

  looking back om evemts like you described, one after another, where  
  nothing came of them?  I view them now from a more jaded lens.

I certainly don't blame Doug for such a grandious talk, because I believe he 
was totally sold on the belief that Veda Land was going to come about. 

I do remember those months of CCP fondly.
