Hmmm, according to Barry, Mrs. Rajaram was one step away from bing a swimsuit 
model (“very attractive” was how I think he described her, so much so that she 
would “stand out” in FF.  Note the implied dig.)

She looks more like a bored, frumpy housewife.

 Amy and Troy were invited by the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) as 
part of the Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) delegation of fifteen business 
owners.
 Amy and Troy founded Ideal Energy in 2009 with the mission to drive the change 
towards sustainable energy and help businesses and individuals invest in clean 
energy and save money by installing solar arrays. Since 2009, Ideal Energy has 
become one of the largest solar companies in Iowa, with 36 employees.
 Amy and Troy became involved with the NRDC and E2 a few years ago and have 
been supporting clean energy policy in the U.S. by telling their success 
stories and those of their clients. Their mission at the Paris summit was to 
show the world that businesses and investors support action on climate change 
because it is good for the economy and the environment. “Solar energy is one of 
the fastest growing industries in the country,” said Amy. “People want to 
participate.”
 While Amy is working with the Environmental Protection Agency in Iowa on the 
state’s Clean Power Plan proposal, Troy has visited the White House several 
times to meet with senators and senior presidential advisors. Troy, who served 
in the U.S. Navy for nine years, feels fortunate to be involved with national 
security through renewable energy and resource security.
 “Most wars are fought over lack of resources,” said Troy. “With renewable 
energy, we are creating an abundance of energy. We don’t have to be in a 
situation of lack, and this is changing the politics of the world.”
 Ideal Energy’s success is driven by the Van Beeks’ dedication to clean energy 
and the environment. They are proud that MUM alumni comprise 50 percent of 
their workforce. “Most of the MUM student body are very conscious individuals 
and they believe that there is a different and more conscious way to live in 
this world,” said Amy.
 “The idealism that MUM has is exactly why we started the company,” Troy said. 
“Sustainability is the manifestation of the consciousness the University 
develops.”

served in the U.S. Navy for nine years, feels fortunate to be involved with 
national security through renewable energy and resource security.“Most wars are 
fought over lack of resources,” said Troy. “With renewable energy, we are 
creating an abundance of energy. We don’t have to be in a situation of lack, 
and this is changing the politics of the world.”Ideal Energy’s success is 
driven by the Van Beeks’ dedication to clean energy and the environment. They 
are proud that MUM alumni comprise 50 percent of their workforce. “Most of the 
MUM student body are very conscious individuals and they believe that there is 
a different and more conscious way to live in this world,” said Amy.“The 
idealism that MUM has is exactly why we started the company,” Troy said. 
“Sustainability is the manifestation of the consciousness the University 
develops.” |

I agree. I have a lot of respect for Marshall Rosenberg, who pioneered NVC. 
Many people are not even aware of how "violent" their communication is. 
Rosenberg has done a huge amount of good work.

Yes, they used to call it having good manners.:-) I don't understand how 
communication can be violent, unless someone is holding a weapon, or about to 
assault someone else. It sounds like a bit of hyperbole. Also, when did my 
choice to respond peacefully, forcefully, humorously, or silently, go away? Is 
this outside influence of 'violent speech' so difficult to ignore, or modify?  

 This NVC process is a good reminder, and if it helps some towards 
self-awareness, fine, though like most teaching, the real knowledge comes from 
applying it in real world situations according to our own personalities, and 
looking at the results. That is a natural result of maturity, anyway.

Yep it seems the students have an ulterior motive, bringing this in to help 
change the movement's culture of the elders on campus. 
 

"NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that 
violent strategies—whether verbal or physical—are learned behaviors taught and 
supported by the prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the 
same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet 
one or more of these needs."

Thanks Doug. I don't want to imply that those like "Karl" (Whose piece I have 
yet to read...) may not be entirely objective in their assessment, though it is 
much more valuable in any case to hear your direct observations.

 Yes, I've walked around inspecting the Dome several times the last few weeks. 
It is fine. I am not concerned. I have done that kind of work and they are 
doing fine. The structure is easy to work on. Some kids were around traveling 
with the crew but not handling or applying the material. For the type of work 
and type of applicator you don't necessarily need respirators. You apply it 
from the up wind side. The report by Karl seems overblown concern. The 
facilities people at the university researched options for the job and found a 
company that would give a 10 year guarantee on the work. The previous 
contractor the last time the roofing job was done is not around.

 I don't know about the bash fest but I certainly had the thought that this one 
post about someone's (Karl's, presumably) concerns about carcinogenic dome 
materials and underage, under protected, underpaid workers is unsubstantiated 
at this point. It wouldn't be hard to do a little detective work in the space 
of 24 hours to find out if any of it is true. Certainly, if I was in FF and 
worried about it I would have already started finding facts out. Has anyone 
here done that at all?

Thanks for this - I read most of the MUM Strategic Plan, and it is on par with 
any corporate annual report. I appreciated the level of detail, such as a line 
item budget, and reasonable growth expectations. The level of detail is 
appropriate too, so that this could be used as a working document to get 
started.

 The physical condition of campus? It is a well-enough functioning university

as Bevan was removed as chairman of the board of trustees. Though still as 
university president with some people who serve at his pleasure they still sit 
on things. But there yet are a lot of good people in it altruistically.

that works as well as the petroleum-based products, which if applied correctly 
aren't a danger, in terms of fumes and exposure. Without addressing the

 Hello - 
 Perhaps the group could offer insights into this controversy. It appears the 
repair job on the roof of the meditation dome for men is being done with highly 
toxic, suspected carcinogenic, chemical products, and Amish contractors who use 
teenage laborers. Some of these laborers appear very young. No safety gear 
appears to be in use.
 

 Questions:
 

 Why is the college using toxic (suspected carcinogen) products on the dome 
roof repair?
 

 Why is the college not requiring protective equipment on adults and teens 
working on the roof as a condition of the contract? (Harnesses, respirators, 
clothing)
 

 Is the roof repair project genuinely compliant with Iowa and Federal law 
regarding dangerous workplaces and children? Is the system being gamed?

 Whew boy, I've never been in the domes and probably thank Robin Carlsen for 
that (laughs). Why in the world would the domes not have been constructed 
properly with a foundation that is waterproof and sound? These structures look 
relatively massive - surely you would make sure they were engineered 
adequately? Anyway, between the human sweat, respiration and resident flying 
foam that has probably been stewing in the domes for decades I would be happy 
to give it all a big miss even if I were practicing the siddhis. Yuck.

 Hello - 
 Perhaps the group could offer insights into this controversy. It appears the 
repair job on the roof of the meditation dome for men is being done with highly 
toxic, suspected carcinogenic, chemical products, and Amish contractors who use 
teenage laborers. Some of these laborers appear very young. No safety gear 
appears to be in use.
 

 Questions:
 

 Why is the college using toxic (suspected carcinogen) products on the dome 
roof repair?
 

 Why is the college not requiring protective equipment on adults and teens 
working on the roof as a condition of the contract? (Harnesses, respirators, 
clothing)
 

 Is the roof repair project genuinely compliant with Iowa and Federal law 
regarding dangerous workplaces and children? Is the system being gamed?
 

 Why is a college that offers degrees in sustainable living, and loudly touts 
itself as organic, sustainable, Non-GMO and "conscious" using toxic chemicals 
on the roof of their meditation dome?
 

 Why didn't the

 I think your "magical thinking" has hit the nail on the head. Support of 
nature and all that garble - just build it out of icing sugar and it will stand 
forever as testimony to the glory of The Teaching! Who designed the domes? Who 
engineered them? Who actually built them? How much was town labor or expertise 
as opposed to roo input? Who was the final "yes, go ahead this looks great and 
sound" man or woman? Did FF have to okay engineering and building and 
inspection permits all along the way or were there bribes or inside jobs? 
Anybody know?

Good observation about administration of spiritual orgs.  I was at a meeting 
last night that was all about mitigating this.  A clear and present danger that 
is a real problem for the survival of the university [and Domes] is with a 
character of a few conservative belief-based ideologues that occupy key 
position.  The metrics for a very long time for the university are all about 
attrition.  This is about the toxicity of movement culture and it is getting 
down to an urgent point of survival of the very university if people don't 
change. 

 That though is different than this re-roofing the Domes.  Re-roofing the Domes 
is a tip of an iceberg underneath.  -JaiGuruYou!

 I would imagine the substance being used on the domes is some sort of sealer 
and wood preserver, among other things, and that would mean some sort of either 
creosote or petroleum product as in tar. These things are carcinogenic, as are 
a multitude of other products including glues, foams etc. Unfortunately, 
undertaking a heavy duty roofing job has to include toxic materials as I don't 
believe the Iowa weather is conducive to banana leaves or palm fronds providing 
adequate cover over a shelter. On the other hand, workmen should be adequately 
protected against these fumes and other ways in which these waterproofers and 
sealers can get all over you. To be working without respirators and adequate 
suits and gloves would be idiotic and most likely against the law.

 Hello - 
 Perhaps the group could offer insights into this controversy. It appears the 
repair job on the roof of the meditation dome for men is being done with highly 
toxic, suspected carcinogenic, chemical products, and Amish contractors who use 
teenage laborers. Some of these laborers appear very young. No safety gear 
appears to be in use.
 

 Questions:
 

 Why is the college using toxic (suspected carcinogen) products on the dome 
roof repair?
 

 Why is the college not requiring protective equipment on adults and teens 
working on the roof as a condition of the contract? (Harnesses, respirators, 
clothing)
 

 Is the roof repair project genuinely compliant with Iowa and Federal law 
regarding dangerous workplaces and children? Is the system being gamed?
 

 Why is a college that offers degrees in sustainable living, and loudly touts 
itself as organic, sustainable, Non-GMO and "conscious" using toxic chemicals 
on the roof of their meditation dome?
 

 Why didn't the college insist on the use of green products, consult with green 
experts or follow LEEDS best-practices and guidelines?
 

 A survey asking for community feedback about these issues was shared today:

 Has anyone thought to actually get in an air quality control professional who 
can test the mold spores in the air? Or the formaldehyde or other such 
contaminants? This isn't rocket science and as administrator or someone 
associated with the place I would insist on it. It is only responsible to do so 
and is a no brainer given the fact you are offering a facility to the public 
where there might be health concerns arising from bad air quality. Why not put 
a bug in the ear of non MUM officials in town whose job it might be to inspect 
these places? Blow the whistle, so to speak, given real concerns about not only 
the engineering but the health issues this would be incumbent on someone to do 
so. Hell, I'll do it! I'm good at raising a little hell...LOL
 Or, are the townfolk in the pockets of MUM administration? Or, are there even 
any native town folk left??

they had originally just pushed dirt up against the foundation without applying 
any kind of waterproofing or drains. I'd walk in the door, and my lungs would 
freeze up; so, I'd take a deep breath, walk in, kick off my shoes, and head 
upstairs, where the air was better. But, I kept coming out of program with 
headaches. At that point, the only reason I went to the dome was Petra 
insisting on it, and I finally put my foot down and kicked my flying wings to

As for the dome, itself, my recollection is that on top of all that beautiful 
woodwork is foam insulation (probably sprayed on) and topped with some kind of 
protective membrane. I doubt there's much in the way of new-age hippy roofing

I was getting ready to suggest an Ozone generator.I think most people freak at 
the idea because they think of ozone pollution on the streets like LA.Ca.  
Ozone generators create oxygen rich air, 03. One molecule brakes off and 
attaches to pollutants, oxidizing the pollutant, leaving purer 02 rich air. Had 
a generator for my house years ago, kept it fresh like rain cleansed air.

They've tried various methods over the years to remedy the air in the ladies' 
dome. Many years ago, we donated money for large ozone generators to be 
installed that would be run when the dome was empty and shut off an hour or two 
before program. But, certain individuals completely lost their shit that ozone 
was being used at all, regardless of the reality that it wouldn't be present by 
program time, and I'm pretty sure that method was ultimately discontinued. And, 
I'm not sure it did all that much, anyway.

As for the men's dome, they may have changed the entrance setup, but that 
basement still exists underneath it. The air handling equipment may have been 
massively upgraded, but it's still down there in the basement. Has anything 
been done to prevent mold from growing down there? Doug?

 It seems the only way to counter such a situation is to create a management

to move forward, the larger issue as you say, is to get past the politics, 
which in any spiritual or religious organization, are incredibly entrenched. 
 

 Good points. Also, when it is all insider goings on it is hard to move beyond 
not only the party line but with the need to keep things looking okay dokey you 
don't want some outsider coming along and sounding any alarm with regards to 
the fact you might have to have a giant overhaul of some aspect of your

disease within the next few years.
 

 Revolutionary movements don't attract good administrators. It is a different 
skill set, and during phase two, once the the change is established, and the 
prime leader gone, such movements, both political and spiritual, have been 
historically prone to the sort of dictatorship now evident at MUM. Dr. Nader 
though very well meaning, is too academically oriented to take on the COO

It is fine. I am not concerned. I have done that kind of work and they are 
doing fine. The structure is easy to work on. Some kids were around traveling 
with the crew but not handling or applying the material. For the type of work 
and type of applicator you don't necessarily need respirators. You apply it 
from the up wind side. The report by Karl seems overblown concern. The 
facilities people at the university researched options for the job and found a

The physical condition of campus? It is a well-enough functioning university 
campus. Always work in process around the whole campus but it is manifestly 
being worked on by conscious strategic planning. Some of the Trustees are more 
proactive now with their money supporting things strategically. Things improved 
as Bevan was removed as chairman of the board of trustees. Though still as 
university president with some people who serve at his pleasure they still sit 
on things. But there yet are a lot of good people in it altruistically.

 They've tried various methods over the years to remedy the air in the ladies' 
dome. Many years ago, we donated money for large ozone generators to be 
installed that would be run when the dome was empty and shut off an hour or two 
before program. But, certain individuals completely lost their shit that ozone 
was being used at all, regardless of the reality that it wouldn't be present by 
program time, and I'm pretty sure that method was ultimately discontinued. And, 
I'm not sure it did all that much, anyway.

As for the men's dome, they may have changed the entrance setup, but that 
basement still exists underneath it. The air handling equipment may have been 
massively upgraded, but it's still down there in the basement. Has anything 
been done to prevent mold from growing down there? Doug?

It seems the only way to counter such a situation is to create a management 
group, paid real-world wages to maintain the property. The current unbalanced 
attitude of all the attention on managing the knowledge, with little thought 
given to the infrastructure, isn't working. Though in order to create the will 
to move forward, the larger issue as you say, is to get past the politics, 
which in any spiritual or religious organization, are incredibly entrenched.  

 Revolutionary movements don't attract good administrators. It is a different 
skill set, and during phase two, once the the change is established, and the 
prime leader gone, such movements, both political and spiritual, have been 
historically prone to the sort of dictatorship now evident at MUM. Dr. Nader 
though very well meaning, is too academically oriented to take on the COO 
(Chief Operations Officer) role, though that is the position needed now, with 
the will to support it.

Hello -
Perhaps the group could offer insights into this controversy. It appears the 
repair job on the roof of the meditation dome for men is being done with highly 
toxic, suspected carcinogenic, chemical products, and Amish contractors who use 
teenage laborers. Some of these laborers appear very young. No safety gear 
appears to be in use.
Questions:
Why is the college using toxic (suspected carcinogen) products on the dome roof 
repair?
Why is the college not requiring protective equipment on adults and teens 
working on the roof as a condition of the contract? (Harnesses, respirators, 
clothing)
Is the roof repair project genuinely compliant with Iowa and Federal law 
regarding dangerous workplaces and children? Is the system being gamed?
Why is a college that offers degrees in sustainable living, and loudly touts 
itself as organic, sustainable, Non-GMO and "conscious" using toxic chemicals 
on the roof of their meditation dome?
Why didn't the college insist on the use of green products, consult with green 
experts or follow LEEDS best-practices and guidelines?
A survey asking for community feedback about these issues was shared today:

 I would imagine the substance being used on the domes is some sort of sealer 
and wood preserver, among other things, and that would mean some sort of either 
creosote or petroleum product as in tar. These things are carcinogenic, as are 
a multitude of other products including glues, foams etc. Unfortunately, 
undertaking a heavy duty roofing job has to include toxic materials as I don't 
believe the Iowa weather is conducive to banana leaves or palm fronds providing 
adequate cover over a shelter. On the other hand, workmen should be adequately 
protected against these fumes and other ways in which these waterproofers and 
sealers can get all over you. To be working without respirators and adequate 
suits and gloves would be idiotic and most likely against the law.

 Subject: Toxics, the dome and the Amish. Not green. Not leadership. Not Cool.
 
 
 Hello - 
 Perhaps the group could offer insights into this controversy. It appears the 
repair job on the roof of the meditation dome for men is being done with highly 
toxic, suspected carcinogenic, chemical products, and Amish contractors who use 
teenage laborers. Some of these laborers appear very young. No safety gear 
appears to be in use.
 

 Questions:
 

 Why is the college using toxic (suspected carcinogen) products on the dome 
roof repair?
 

 Why is the college not requiring protective equipment on adults and teens 
working on the roof as a condition of the contract? (Harnesses, respirators, 
clothing)
 

 Is the roof repair project genuinely compliant with Iowa and Federal law 
regarding dangerous workplaces and children? Is the system being gamed?
 

 Why is a college that offers degrees in sustainable living, and loudly touts 
itself as organic, sustainable, Non-GMO and "conscious" using toxic chemicals 
on the roof of their meditation dome?
 

 Why didn't the college insist on the use of green products, consult with green 
experts or follow LEEDS best-practices and guidelines?
 

 A survey asking for community feedback about these issues was shared today:

 Question- What is the toxic substance being used? How long is it toxic for? 
Does it dissipate? Is there a better ,longer lasting, cost effective substance 
to use? Is the *organic* mold in the domes any less toxic? How old are the 
Amish workers? Are they currently out of school and doing summer work? Are they 
union? Are they undercutting union workers?
 

 I would imagine the substance being used on the domes is some sort of sealer 
and wood preserver, among other things, and that would mean some sort of either 
creosote or petroleum product as in tar. These things are carcinogenic, as are 
a multitude of other products including glues, foams etc. Unfortunately, 
undertaking a heavy duty roofing job has to include toxic materials as I don't 
believe the Iowa weather is conducive to banana leaves or palm fronds providing 
adequate cover over a shelter. On the other hand, workmen should be adequately 
protected against these fumes and other ways in which these waterproofers and 
sealers can get all over you. To be working without respirators and adequate 
suits and gloves would be idiotic and most likely against the law.

Thanks for passing this along, Share. For those who don't know him, Pico Iyer 
is one of the luminaries of the American Buddhist Literary World (if there is 
such a thing). I first discovered him in the pages of Tricycle, the best 
Buddhist mag I've yet to find. 

He knows his Buddhist shit and his real-world shinola and he knows how to tell 
the difference between them. And he writes like a sonofabitch. To set him loose 
writing about Leonard Cohen and this period of his life is Kismet, a veritable 
Meetings With Remarkable Men for our age. Sounds like a must-read.
If you liked this article, give this a try. The editors of 92Y invited Ayer to 
participate in their ongoing Poetry Center Online series, in which they give a 
noted writer the privilege of listening to an extremely rare recording from 
their archive of interviews and performances of one of that writer's favorite 
poets/singers/whatever. Pico Ayer got to review a 1966 recording of Leonard 
Cohen reading from his novel Beautiful Losers and performing The Stranger 
Song.

Although I saw him perform many times, I only met Leonard Cohen once, at a TM 
wedding in Los Angeles. Because of the people getting married, the wedding 
party was a weird combination of TM royalty and Hollywood royalty, so Leonard 
in his black suit and black shirt didn't really stand out. Except for the 
ladies. There were women drooling on their husbands' shoulders as they turned 
their heads to stare at him. I've never seen anything like it. The man was 
simply the most powerful pussy magnet I've ever seen.

| Today's selection -- from The Art of Stillness by Pico Iyer. Leonard Cohen, 
legendary singer-songwriter, musician, poet, and novelist perhaps best known 
for his song Hallelujah, has more recently had occasion to explore a more 
monastic life:
I'd come up here in order to write about [Leonard Cohen's] near-silent, 
anonymous life on the mountain, but for the moment I lost all sense of where I 
was. I could hardly believe that this rabbinical-seeming gentleman in 
wire-rimmed glasses and wool cap was in truth the singer and poet who'd been 
renowned for thirty years as an international heartthrob, a constant traveler, 
and an Armani-clad man of the world. 

Leonard Cohen had come to this Old World redoubt to make a life -- an art -- 
out of stillness. And he was working on simplifying himself as fiercely as he 
might on the verses of one of his songs, which he spends more than ten years 
polishing to perfection. The week I was visiting, he was essentially spending 
seven days and nights in a bare meditation hall, sitting stock-still. His name 
in the monastery, Jikan, referred to the silence between two thoughts. ...

Sitting still, he said with unexpected passion, was 'the real deep 
entertainment' he had found in his sixty-one years on the planet. 'Real 
profound and voluptuous and delicious entertainment. The real feast that is 
available within this activity.' ...

 'What else would I be doing?' he asked. 'Would I be starting a new marriage 
with a young woman and raising another family? Finding new drugs, buying more 
expensive wine? I don't know. This seems to me the most luxurious and sumptuous 
response to the emptiness of my own existence.' 

Typically lofty and pitiless words; living on such close terms with silence 
clearly hadn't diminished his gift for golden sentences. But the words carried 
weight when coming from one who seemed to have tasted all the pleasures that 
the world has to offer. 

Being in this remote place of stillness had nothing to do with piety or 
purity, he assured me; it was simply the most practical way he'd found of 
working through the confusion and terror that had long been his bedfellows. ... 
  
'Nothing touches it,' Cohen said, as the light came into the cabin, of sitting 
still. Then he remembered himself, perhaps, and gave me a crinkly, crooked 
smile. 'Except if you're courtin',' he added. 'If you're young, the hormonal 
thrust has its own excitement.' 

Going nowhere, as Cohen described it, was the grand adventure that makes sense 
of everywhere else. 

Sitting still as a way of falling in love with the world and everything in it; 
I'd seldom thought of it like that. Going nowhere as a way of cutting through 
the noise and finding fresh time and energy to share with others; I'd sometimes 
moved toward the idea, but it had never come home to me so powerfully as in the 
example of this man who seemed to have everything, yet found his happiness, his 
freedom, in giving everything up. ...

The idea has been around

Part 1: Unraveling the Yuga Cycle Timeline
The Yuga Cycle doctrine tells us that we are now living in the Kali Yuga; the 
age of darkness, when moral virtue and mental capabilities reach their lowest 
point in the cycle. The Indian epic The Mahabharata describes the Kali Yuga as 
the period when the “World Soul” is Black in hue; only one quarter of virtue 
remains, which slowly dwindles to zero at the end of the Kali Yuga. Men turn to 
wickedness; disease, lethargy, anger, natural calamities, anguish and fear of 
scarcity dominate. Penance, sacrifices and religious observances fall into 
disuse. All creatures degenerate. Change passes over all things, without 
exception.
The Kali Yuga (Iron Age) was preceded by three others Yugas: Satya or Krita 
Yuga (Golden Age), Treta Yuga (Silver Age) and the Dwapara Yuga (Bronze Age). 
In the Mahabharata, Hanuman gives the following description of the Yuga Cycle 
to the Pandava prince Bhima:
The Krita Yuga was so named because there was but one religion, and all men 
were saintly: therefore they were not required to perform religious ceremonies… 
Men neither bought nor sold; there were no poor and no rich; there was no need 
to labour, because all that men required was obtained by the power of will…The 
Krita Yuga was without disease; there was no lessening with the years; there 
was no hatred, or vanity, or evil thought whatsoever; no sorrow, no fear. All 
mankind could attain to supreme blessedness. The universal soul was White… the 
identification of self with the universal soul was the whole religion of the 
Perfect Age. 
In the Treta Yuga sacrifices began, and the World Soul became Red; virtue 
lessened a quarter. Mankind sought truth and performed religious ceremonies; 
they obtained what they desired by giving and by doing. In the Dwapara Yuga the 
aspect of the World Soul was Yellow: religion lessened one-half. The Veda was 
divided into four parts, and although some had knowledge of the four Vedas, 
others knew but three or one. Mind lessened, Truth declined, and there came 
desire and diseases and calamities; because of these men had to undergo 
penances. It was a decadent Age by reason of the prevalence of sin.”[1]
And now we are living in the dark times of the Kali Yuga, when goodness and 
virtue has all but disappeared from the world. But when did the Kali Yuga 
begin? And when does it end? In spite of the elaborate theological framework 
which describes the characteristics of this age, the start and end dates of the 
Kali Yuga remain shrouded in mystery. The popularly accepted date for the 
beginning of the Kali Yuga is 3102 BC, thirty-five years after the conclusion 
of the great battle of the Mahabharata. 
This is remarkably close to the proposed beginning of the current “Great Cycle” 
of the Mayan Long Count Calendar in 3114 BC. It is of interest to note that in 
both of these cases the beginning dates of the respective cycles were 
calculated retrospectively. The Mayans had recomputed their ancient calendars 
sometime between 400 BC to 50 CE, at the ceremonial center of Izapa in Mexico, 
and fixed the starting date of the current Great Cycle of their Long Count 
Calendar. 
And in India, sometime around 500 CE, a major review of the Indian calendric 
systems had taken place. It was during this time that the renowned astronomer 
Aryabhatta had identified

  There are competitions but I've never entered any. I might give one a try in 
February. As for breeding, Wild caught Peregrines like Sandy are not known for 
breeding in captivity,
 although you never know. She has tried to kill him twice! I have to keep them 
separated. However, hormones in the Spring could change her attitude. She could 
also take off and go her own merry way any time I fly her. So far, she hasn't 
done that. Right now , I think she realizes that she has an easy life.  If I 
want to use Levi in a breeding program, I'd probably have to get a female bred 
in captivity as he was. That seems to work out well, I'm told.
 I think it would be cool to breed them and release them, or some of them, into 
the wild. Falconers have been doing this since the seventies and returned them 
to a healthy population from once being nearly extinct. They were taken off of 
the endangered species list in the late nineties. DDT had all but wiped them 
out by the sixties. Tundra Peregrine numbers have since returned to pre-DDT 
levels and Anatum Peregrine numbers are much stronger but not as much as could 
be.

 Yes, I work with them in some capacity every day. While they are or were 
molting they don't fly, just sit around and be lazy but I do feed them on the 
fist. That keeps them in the habit of knowing that I provide food. During that 
time they have to be *fat* so they grow strong healthy feathers. Now that 
Levi's molt has finished, I've been gradually reducing his weight until he gets 
a sharp appetite at the same time each day. He will then respond to his 
training and I then take him out to large open fields , let him go and fly. I 
put a kite up with a lure hanging from it and he flies up to get it for the 
reward. Today he went up about 500 feet and by the end of the month he should 
be going up about 1500 ft. Then we'll go for ducks! He'll fly up several 
hundred feet over a pond with wild ducks and Sophie , my dog, will rush the 
pond and scare the ducks out of the water and the falcon then goes into a 
*stoop*, a dive, sometimes reaching over 250 miles an
 hour and hits the duck.

Sandy will look just like Levi in two or three more months. She was in her 
immature plumage at thetime of the photo and started molting since. By the end 
of the year she will have her *big girl* feathers in. Of course , the females 
in raptors are about 50% bigger than males. Levi weighs about 22 oz's and Sandy 
about 33 oz's. As soon as Sandy grows in a few more new feathers, I'll start 
getting her in shape for the fall. I'll send her up to a lure on a kite, 
raising it higher and higher every few days until she climbs about 1500 feet at 
a time. They absolutely love it!

  There are competitions but I've never entered any. I might give one a try in 
February. As for breeding, Wild caught Peregrines like Sandy are not known for 
breeding in captivity,
 although you never know. She has tried to kill him twice! I have to keep them 
separated. However, hormones in the Spring could change her attitude. She could 
also take off and go her own merry way any time I fly her. So far, she hasn't 
done that. Right now , I think she realizes that she has an easy life.  If I 
want to use Levi in a breeding program, I'd probably have to get a female bred 
in captivity as he was. That seems to work out well, I'm told.
 I think it would be cool to breed them and release them, or some of them, into 
the wild. Falconers have been doing this since the seventies and returned them 
to a healthy population from once being nearly extinct. They were taken off of 
the endangered species list in the late nineties. DDT had all but wiped them 
out by the sixties. Tundra Peregrine numbers have since returned to pre-DDT 
levels and Anatum Peregrine numbers are much stronger but not as much as could 
be.

To the editor:
Spending eight hours in a cold cell in Jefferson County jail replete with gray 
and white stripes allowed me to realize that the “good ol’ boys network” is 
alive and well in Fairfield. So, let me tell you what I found out:
The Heartland project will ship 20 million bushels of GMO corn to Texas and 
Mexico​ despite Mexico being the corn capital of the Americas and disregarding 
the fact that Mexico has banned the planting of GMO maize. This is how the USA 
subverts the economies of developing countries.
Locally, it will take 25,000 semi-trailers to deliver the grain to Heartland. 
25,000 semi-trailers equal 50,000-semi trailers-round trip. Drivers will be 
reticent to drive under the 115-year old BNSF railroad, one lane Nutmeg Avenue 
gravel underpass, but will instead come down Burlington Avenue, past Walmart  
HyVee substantially slowing down traffic and polluting the city. It is 
interesting to note that 12 percent of Jefferson County residents already have 
lung problems. The county cannot ban Heartland semi-trailers from going down 
Burlington without banning all similar semi-trailers. So expect them!
Lee Dimmitt admitted that he was aware of BNSF railroad’s adamant refusal to 
renovate the Nutmeg underpass, a critical component in the deal. Yet the 
supervisors approved the TIF/bonding resolution, purposely leaving out what 
they know to be the county’s responsibility in the very near future – to 
renovate the dangerous one lane gravel underpass.
Were the entire Nutmeg underpass construction included, transparently, in the 
front end of the deal where it belongs, the taxpayers would see that they are 
actually on the hook for $5 million. However, the supervisors put it on the 
back end, virtually out of sight. In other words, we are obligated to increase 
the debt at the time the one lane gravel underpass becomes untenable and 
dilapidated. At that time we will be forced to add another $2.8 million to fix 
the safety problem. Hence the aerial view of the taxpayer debt seeing both the 
front and back end is $5 million dollars, not $2.5 million dollars. The service 
on the totality of this debt has not been calculated and disclosed to the 
public and appears to be financially unsustainable.
Moreover, the supervisors are remiss in not securing an “outside” feasibility 
study. If Heartland does not meet its ambitious goals, it can fail. A CEO in 
the grain industry has told me, in his opinion, the Heartland project in not 
viable. If so, we will not only be left with an enormous debt but an abandoned 
monstrosity at our east gate with no property income to defray the debt. The 
supervisors’ actions are characterized by ignorance and “a lack of due 
diligence in securing professional advice, amounting to willful blindness.”
Just this week, in the face of the community’s concerns, the supervisors had 
the temerity to sign off on a $5,000 appropriation of taxpayer monies to hire 
outside attorneys so as to FEDA-fast track a legally binding TIF/bonding 
agreement between the county and Heartland, leaving out the Nutmeg underpass. 
No such agreement should be signed nor appropriations made to outside attorneys 
on behalf of the county before the whole Heartland/FEDA/supervisor story is 
pulled out from under the cover of darkness and the actual cost analysis

proceeded in good order whence the public was subsequently able to make

coming in and apparently telling lies about its operation, its intentions, 
keeping it inner workings secret and in general getting ready to take the 
locals for a ride to the cleaners costing them a lot of money. This in a town 
that has long been dominated by an organization that came in, lied about its

In 1972 when an ND told me I couldn't be a vegetarian because I was 
already showing signs of anemia after just two weeks of trying a veggie 
diet, he also told me that most people could get by one eating animal 
protein two or three times a week.  On some of the political boards the 
vegan liberals hate me because I advocate biochemical individuality.  
They often have anecdotal claims that they have been doing just fine on 
a vegan diet.  So I often tell them we need to put them on a treadmill 
and see how they do.


They also get miffed when I point to the Meatless Mondays movement 
which claims if people didn't eat meat one day a week then climate 
change could be prevented.

Nothing like what Lance Armstrong did is being discussed on FFL today, first 
of all. Second of all, it would be awfully hard for me to project an attempt to 
excuse you and Barry from your dishonesty. 

 I'm going by your record of pandering to the males here and especially to 
Barry. And I would suggest that from everything I know isn't the most 
convincing testimony you could offer for something someone says being right.

 MUM campus sits right next to a grain elevator, and this new facility will be 
about 5 miles away. There's lots of shrieking about GMO dust, but the main 
voices in the fight against it are the people from neighboring properties who 
will be impacted by the increase in truck traffic. In any event, the location 
is outside city limits, so it's beyond the jurisdiction of Fairfield city 
government. Years ago, there was huge opposition when the county supervisors 
tried to impose zoning in unincorporated Jefferson County, so there's nothing 
that prevents Heartland from building the facility. However, such a large 
facility will require road improvements, and that involves county government.

I saw that the other day and was going to bring it up if Lawson replied 
to the thread again.  Can't you imagine how the CEOs at Monsanto and 
other Big Fooda companies heads are going to explode if the counts 
show it passed?   Some of those areas might well have voted for it.  
This is NOT a partisan issue and you can find many conservatives who 
want GMO labeling too.  I would suspect that if the final count shows it 
passed then those companies will demand recount or court action.  This 
is going to a bitter fight.

   Did Prop 37 really lose or was it vote fraud?
 Thursday, November 08, 2012 by: Jon Rappoport


 7,190
   
   
  
 (NaturalNews) Hold your horses.

 On election night, not long after
   the polls closed in California, the announcement came out: Prop 37 was
 losing. A little while later, it was all over. 37 had gone down to
 defeat.

 But is that the whole story? No.

 As of 2:30PM today, Thursday, November 8th, two days after the election, many 
 votes in California remain uncounted.

 I tried to find out how many.

 It turns out that the Secretary of State of CA, responsible for elections in 
 the state, doesn't know.

 I was told all counties in California have been asked, not ordered, to report 
 in with those figures. It's voluntary.

 So I picked out a few of the biggest counties and called their voter 
 registrar offices. Here are the boggling results:

 Santa Clara County: 180,000 votes remain uncounted.

 Orange County: 241,336 votes remain uncounted.

 San Diego County: 475,000 votes remain uncounted.

 LA County: 782,658 votes remain uncounted.

 In just those four counties, 1.6 million votes remain uncounted.

 The California Secretary of State's website indicates that Prop 37 is behind 
 by 559,776
   votes.

 So in the four counties I looked into, there are roughly three times as many 
 uncounted votes as the margin of Prop 37's defeat.

 And
   as I say, I checked the numbers in only four counties. There are 54
 other counties in the state. Who knows how many votes they still need to
   process?

 So why is anyone saying Prop 37 lost?

 People will say, Well, it's all about projections. There are experts. They 
 know what they're doing. They made a prediction...

 Really? Who are those experts? I have yet to find them.

 For
   big elections, the television networks rely on a private consortium
 called the National Election Pool (NEP). NEP does projections and
 predictions. Did NEP make the premature call on Prop 37? So far I see no
   evidence one way or the other.

 NEP makes some calls for the
 television networks, but NEP is composed of CBS, CNN, FOX, NBC, ABC, and
   AP. It could hardly be called an independent source of information for
 those networks.

 NEP has AP (Associated Press) do the actual vote tabulating, and NEP also 
 contracts work out to Edison Media Research
 and Mitofsky International to do exit polls and projections based on
 those polls.

 Edison Media Research did the exit polls in the state of Washington for this 
 election. How? They surveyed 1493 people by phone. Based on that, I assume 
 they
 made all the projections for elections in that state, even though there
 is no in-person voting in Washington, and voters can submit their
 ballots by mail, postmarked no later than election Tuesday. So how could 
 Edison know anything worth knowing or projecting on election night?

 Both
   Edison Research and Mitofsky were involved in the 2004 election scandal
   (Kerry-Bush), in which their exit polls confounded network news
 anchors, because the poll results were so far off from the incoming 
 vote-counts.

 Edison
   and Mitofsky issued a later report explaining how the disparity could
 have occurred; they tried to validate their own exit-poll data and the
 vote-count, which was like explaining a sudden shift in ocean tides by
 saying clouds covered the moon. It made no sense.

 So if NEP did the premature Prop 37 projections that handed 37 a resounding 
 loss, there is little reason to accept their word.

 We're
   faced with a scandal here. An early unwarranted projection against Prop
   37 was made, when so many votes were still uncounted.

 Those votes are still uncounted.

 Why should we believe anything that comes next?

I received this today from Rob Robb who Xeno, feste and I were writing about 
yesterday.

Enlightened States of America 
  Dear Red  States:


We're ticked  off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and 
we've decided  we're leaving: Legitimate rape is almost reason  enough!

We in  New York intend to form our own country and we're taking the other 
 Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware that includes  California, Hawaii, Oregon, 
Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin,  Michigan, Illinois and the rest of the 
Northeast.

We  believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially  
to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of  America 
(E.S.A).

To sum up briefly:

You get Texas,  Oklahoma and all the slave states.

We get stem cell  research and the best beaches.

We get Andrew Cuomo and  Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal and Todd 
Akin.

We  get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand.

We get Intel  and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.

We get Harvard. You get  Ole' Miss.

We get 85 percent of America's venture capital  and entrepreneurs.

You get Alabama.

We get  two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get to make the red states pay 
 their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22  percent lower than the Christian 
Coalition's we get a bunch of  happy families. You get a bunch of single 
moms.

Please be  aware that the E.S.A. will be pro choice and anti war and 
we're  going to want all our citizens back from Afghanistan at once. If  
you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids  they're 
apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose  and they don't 
care if you don't show pictures of their children's  caskets coming home.

We wish you success in Afghanistan,  and possibly Iran as well, but we're 
not willing to spend our  resources in these sorts of pursuits.

With the Blue States  in hand we will have firm control of 80% of the 
country's fresh  water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% 
of the  nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines (you can  
import our wines to serve at state dinners) 90% of all cheese, 90  
percent of the high tech industry, most of the US low sulfur coal,  all 
living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven  Sister 
schools plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and  MIT.

With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of  all obese 
Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of  all US 
mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the  hurricanes, 99% of 
all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all  televangelists, Rush 
Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and  the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite,  thank you.

38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was  actually swallowed by a 
whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless  we're discussing the death 
penalty or gun laws, 44% say that  evolution is only a theory, 53% that 
Saddam was involved in 9/11  and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you 
are people with higher  morals then we lefties.

We're taking the good weed too. You  can have that crap they grow in  
Mexico.

Sincerely,
Citizens of the Enlightened States of  America

Fish used to be brain food.  No longer.

Two things I forgot to mention.  I was eating fish out of the Red Sea.  Not

Well, biochemical imbalance rings true.  I sent this to some friends who are 
between 48 and 58 and they all are having similar experiences.  It's kind of 
humorous in a way, and begs self-acceptance, but for me, I was on top of my
