Letting go Just imagine that for one sweet day we drop internal struggle and we listen to our impulses innate.../ We'll sleep 'til sunshine calls us and eat double chocolate sundaes and perhaps show up for work three hours late./ We'll blurt out "I'm in love with you" at moments inappropriate, and touch ourselves indecently on trains / But I doubt that we'd be tempted into violence or treachery in crazed pursuit of venal worldly gains.

Please Don't Read About the Seth Rich Murder Everyone from the New York Times to Fox News is telling us, "Don't pay any attention to the Seth Rich case." So please don't read this article. And if you do read it, don't follow up or try to learn more. And whatever you do, please don't talk to anyone else about it.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Scientific Worldview Nineteenth Century science spawned a sterile, disconnected world-view based on reductionism, and an objective reality of independent particles. This science was shattered by 20th Century quantum physics, but the world-view remains today, the basis of capitalism, of technology, and even the way we think of ourselves in relation to community.

Guaranteed Basic Income goes Mainstream No idea has so much potential to transform society as a guaranteed income. Imagine what creativity people are capable of if they don't have to work! Crime born of desperation will plummet. People will be unwilling to work at degrading, meaningless jobs, and employers will have to provide better opportunities. This idea is now going mainstream.

Salt is Good for You New studies correct a long-standing error in standard medical advice. It has been known for a hundred years that high blood pressure is a risk factor for heart attacks. Eating salt raises your blood pressure. So it was obvious: avoiding salt lowers your blood pressure, so it must lower your heart risk. But this logic never was sound.

Election Theft 2016 (Part 4 of 4) There is evidence that the 2016 Democratic Primary was stolen for Clinton and the General Election was stolen for Trump. Several Senate seats also look suspicious. The evidence is not as airtight as it has been in the past, and is most convincing in light of the history detailed in the first 3 parts of this series.

Stories of Election Theft There have been some cases where a smoking gun appeared - usually an insider who blew the whistle. 4 examples: Clint Curtis was hired to write a "back door" into voting machine software. A Diebold computer file named "Rob Georgia" was left unprotected on their web site. SoS Ken Blackwell hired Bush's computer guru to allow White House staff to change Ohio votes. Al Greene came from nowhere to win Dem nomination for SC Senate.

Intro to Election Theft in America Are votes in American elections being counted fairly? In an open democracy, this should not be a question for forensic science, but in 21st century America, it is just that. The US is unique in the developed world in counting votes with proprietary software, not open to inspection. There is stiff resistance to checking ballots with human eyes. So we gather statistics & anecdotes to guess whether vote counts are fair. Part 1/4.

Statistical Evidence for Election Theft Experts agree that much of machinery for recording and counting votes in America is of low quality and egregiously insecure. There is both statistical and anecdotal evidence that these vulnerabilities are actually being exploited to change elections outcomes surreptitiously.

Rumors have been growing that he is in CIA custody. We at OEN don't know what to believe, but we think this topic bears investigation.

This is the consensus of a loose group of election integrity activists with whom I have been connected since the (clearly stolen) 2004 election.

Fundamental Shift in the Science of Aging This week, a major new book was released by OEN Senior Editor Josh Mitteldorf. Mitteldorf exposes a fundamental misunderstanding in the scientific/medical community about AGING, why we age, and the evolutionary meaning of aging. The implications for medical science are deep. There are also repercussions for evolutionary biology and even for politics and for our human relationship to the world. This is a free preview.

Super Tuesday: Who Really Won? Exit polls and patterns of vote statistics suggest that Sanders did better with the voters than with the vote counters. Twelve years ago, there were statistical checks that the alert citizen (with a little statistics background) might use to check on the accuracy of the vote count. But most independent checks on the accuracy of the vote count have been hidden from the public in recent years.

Why Nothing Works Have you noticed that software bugs are a lot more prevalent than they were just a few years ago. We no longer expect things to work the first time we press the appropriate button, and we have work-arounds at the ready. This is the predictable result of competing software standards and millions of programmers racing to add new functionality to systems that have never been tested working in combination with other systems.

Anti-aging, oxymorons, and antioxi-morons Anti-aging medicine is on the cusp of radical life extension, but this isn't "natural medicine". You can't make yourself young by eating organic. It also isn't about anti-oxidants, which have failed in clinical trials and lab tests time and again. Instead, we will be tweaking our hormone profile to make old people young.

Symposium on the JFK Assassination: Day One The JFK assassination fundamentally changed American politics. Presidents from LBJ through Obama have understood that they serve at the pleasure of the CIA, and demands placed on them have been increasingly audacious and destructive. Kreig goes further to assert that every recent presidential candidate (both parties) has been pre-vetted, trained and promoted by the CIA.

Today begins a conference in DC to discuss what has been uncovered by citizen investigators in the years since. We forget that the words "conspiracy theorist" were invented in a CIA operation to marginalize them.

Sleep, Health, and Longevity Good quality sleep, 6-8 hours per night but not more, is associated with many health benefits and greater longevity. But how to get good sleep, and even what good sleep means varies widely from one person to the next. Different people need more or less sleep, and different sleep schedules can work with different job schedules. You can manage sleep with melatonin and yoga and meditation practice.

Existential Threats If we listen to the news, we may think that the gravest threat to humanity comes out from Al Qaeda, or maybe now it's Iraq. The global "terrorist threat" is a red herring, a distraction, an excuse for war, repression, and domestic spying. But that doesn't mean that there are no real threats. The biggest may be human numbers, combined with profligate consumption. Two reasons to organize for environmental sanity.

Petition to End Secrecy in Government "Terrorism" has been used to justify secrecy in government. The truth is just the other way around. The bankers cannot continue to steal from us, the politicians cannot continue to collect bribes, the war profiteers cannot continue to receive fat contracts unless shielded from public scrutiny. The "war on terror" was invented to justify secrecy, not vice versa. Here is a petition to reverse the erosion of transparency.

Three things I've read this week suggest that this war was planned and prepared in 2001, that Obama and Bush were both just puppets following through on policies made by a shadow government that took over after 9/11, and that the "news" we hear now is nothing more than PR that is supposed to help us swallow this abomination.

Can Telomerase Therapies help us Live Longer? Individual cells keep track of generations with the length of their chromosome tails, called telomeres. Cell aging has been linked to human aging, and telomere extension shows great promise as an anti-aging therapy. Cyclo-astragenol might be the best treatment currently available, though it is expensive and not as potent as we would like. Data about telomeres and life extension is still preliminary.

Meanwhile, demonstrations have been repeated again and again, a great deal of know-how has been acquired and shared over the internet. The scientists who stuck with it have been vindicated, and once again people are saying that a solution to pressing global crises is at hand.
