Greetings this time from
In the environmental news I have added a couple of links to a growing health hazard here in New Zealand with the spread of 1080 spraying throughout the country.
Still I believe with positive focus from the heart as well as mind, solutions can still be found.
A wonderful week to you
Below are a few new photos added on of our June winter in NZ.

''AyasminA returns with another ayahuasca-themed interview.
This time she connects with visionary artist, Martina Hoffmann,
to talk about the connection between the visionary states induced by ayahuasca
and the visions on canvas that they leave in their wake.
Other topics include honoring the divine feminine and finding a balance between living in direct
connection with nature and losing ourselves in a haze of techno-mediated busy work.''

''Schultes' Amazon Turns Science into Art''
New Zealand is a beautiful country and we are happy to be here. However behind its "green" image there are plans to continue dumping more and more deadly toxin 1080 throughout the country. So far grass roots actions have been able to pause some of these plans, however the big money pressures persist. Here are a few articles explaining the local situation:
''The Toddler King’s Insufferable Reign is Doomed.

Stephanie McCrummen of The Washington Post reports: "Five years after the Darfur conflict began, the nature of violence across this vast desert region has changed dramatically, from a mostly one-sided government campaign against civilians to a complex free-for-all that is jeopardizing an effective relief mission to more than 2.5 million displaced and vulnerable people....."
Robert Parry | Democrats Legalize Bush's Crimes
Writing for Consortium News, Robert Parry says, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims that a key positive feature of the new wiretap 'compromise' is that the bill reaffirms that the President must follow the law, even though the same bill virtually assures that no one will be held accountable for George W. Bush's violation of the earlier spying law."

JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters (Hardcover)
Americans can stop the overlords from carrying-out the final step for ending human freedom, expanding their global war into Iran, escalating it beyond the nuclear threshold. Advancement of their geopolitical plan through the use of terrorism by our own government and through their proxies in foreign intelligence services remains the immoral center of their unholy schemes. We stop this hypocrisy by making this common knowledge.
