By Kevin Barrett David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission and confessed conspirator against the American republic, died Monday at the age of 101. Chief spokesman for the web of oil and banking interests that dominate the Western Deep State, Rockefeller’s tombstone should feature the following two quotes as his epitaph: Some even believe we [Rockefeller family] are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structureOne World, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it. David Rockefeller, Memoirs We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.

Louis. But sounds don't occur alone. When parents talk to their newborns, they often also hold and caress their babies—all things that help promote healthy development. Nycole Tennant, of Trenton, Illinois, reads a book to her son Kainen in the NICU at St. Louis Children's Hospital. While reading, Tennant also focuses on sensory interactions with her baby. Kainen and his twin sister, Kyzer, were born prematurely. (Credit: Robert Boston/Washington U. School of Medicine) NICU noises For the new study, published in the Journal of Pediatrics , researchers focused on sound because previous research indicated that, compared with children in open hospital wards, babies in private rooms in the NICU had poorer language development at age two. But sounds don't occur alone. When parents talk to their newborns, they often also hold and caress their babies—all things that help promote healthy development.

2nd one is Physical destruction of the earth because of the nuclear war. The 3rd one is even more drastic, that could be the machinations of strangelet or toplet bombs. AaronDo the Archons have the power to destroy our soul? COBRATheoretically yes, if you choose to follow their path. (OK) AaronIt goes on to ask: Is adolescence a natural shift or phase or it’s an Archon creation? COBRAIt’s a combination of both. It’s a form of adaptation to the conditions that are basically a result of Archon intervention. (OK) AaronAnd finally he asks: Why is it such a difficult phase? COBRAIt is because the challenges that a person of that age encounters while he tries to. . . at the same time be himself or herself and at the same time to adjust to the system, that tension is too great, too big. (OK, thank you) We invite you to get involved with Prepare for Change by signing up for our newsletter, becoming a member of Sisterhood of the Rose, joining or starting an Event Support Group and joining us in the Weekly Event Meditations each Sunday at 4 PM GMT.

Early predictors of anxiety and depression may be evident in the brain even at birth, new research suggests. Analyzing brain scans of newborns, researchers found that the strength and pattern of connections between certain brain regions predicted the likelihood of the babies developing excessive sadness, shyness, nervousness, or separation anxiety by age two. Such symptoms have been linked to clinical depression and anxiety disorders in older children and adults. The fact that we could see these connectivity patterns in the brain at birth helps answer a critical question about whether they could be responsible for early symptoms linked to depression and anxiety or whether these symptoms lead to changes in the brain, says Cynthia Rogers, an assistant professor of child psychiatry at the Washington University School of Medicine in St.

Vanessa Beeley 21st Century Wire “We see a lot of devastation. When you see a young child (Omran) who is obviously in shock sitting in the back of an ambulance, you are concerned with how he is, what happened to him and what situation has brought him there. The ability of the photographer to capture that moment renders it one of the best news pictures of the year.” ~ Stuart Hannagan of Getty Images Don McCullin , one of the world’s finest photographers of war and disaster, said the digital revolution meant viewers could no longer trust the truthfulness of images they see. He said photography had been “hijacked” because “the digital cameras are extraordinary. I have a dark room and I still process film but digital photography can be a totally lying kind of experience , you can move anything you want … the whole thing can’t be trusted really.” ~ The Guardian Two very contrasting opinions on the digital age of photographic sleight of hand and perception altering influence.

But several of our posts have met with a similar reader objection: where is the Eastern philosophy? The question could also be put to almost any academic department of philosophy. One answer I’ve often heard dismisses it altogether. Philosophy, some say, developed in the West, first in ancient Greece, then in Rome, the succeeding Christian empire, and the secular age that followed.

LynnSo are there different races of beings that occupy these? COBRAYes. (thank you) AaronCobra in regards to Financial: After the Reset, will everyone get the same amount or will these allocations be different—based upon age, nationality or other factors? COBRAYes, the allocations will be different. It will be some amount given to everybody but then there will be some additional amounts given to people who have merit and people who have certain mission to accomplish with that money. (OK) AaronYou have noted that distribution of funds is merely a matter of logistics. Will funds be distributed directly from the AIIB? COBRAThey will be distributed in a way that will be most efficient logistically and according to the conscious of humanity and the reaction of humanity at that moment. (OK thank you) LynnCobra, is the financial system about to collapse anytime soon? COBRANot yet.

So future people may one day become purified vessels for the divine fire, whereas right now, mankind is just the decomposing starting material of alchemy that contains, only in potential, the seed for an eventual miraculous outcome. It also contains the caput mortem , the irredeemable and unsalvagable dross, which are energies and forces entirely native and epiphenomenal to this Matrix illusion that are to be separated out and discarded so that the remainder can rise to join with Spirit and thereby accomplish the Great Work. The alchemical wheel of history has been grinding away for a long time, at least six thousand years if not further back, perhaps since the last Ice Age. There’s this axiom in alchemy which is “dissolve and coagulate, dissolve and coagulate,” and what do we see in history other than order and chaos, order and chaos, you know, rise and fall, rise and fall.

"Our work shows the opposite." A professional appearance and polished "About" section could easily persuade students that a site was neutral and authoritative, the study found, and young people tended to credulously accept information as presented even without supporting evidence or citations. The research was divided by age group and used a total of 15 different assessments. Here's a sample of some of the results: Most middle school students can't tell native ads from articles. The researchers showed hundreds of middle schoolers a Slate homepage that included a traditional ad and a "native ad" — a paid story branded as "sponsored content" — as well as Slate articles. Most students could identify the traditional ad. But more than 80 percent of them believed that the "sponsored content" article was a real news story. "Some students even mentioned that it was sponsored content but still believed that it was a news article," the researchers wrote, suggesting the students don't know what "sponsored content" means.

The chairman of the HSCA, G. Robert Blakey, stated concerning Groden that “the results of his study played no small part in convincing many Members of the Congress that the Kennedy case should be reopened.” Groden is out in Dealey Plaza every weekend speaking to those who will listen. In this week’s podcast he talks to WhoWhatWhy’s Jeff Schechtman.

I’m Jeff Schechtman. 50 years ago the nation experienced one of the seminal moments of the 20th Century along with two World Wars, the dawning of the nuclear age, and the landing of men on the moon the assassination of JFK was one of last century’s tentpoles. As such, it never ceases to fascinate us. What other event of the 20th century still conjures up as many unanswered questions? Is there anyone who still believes that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and that the Warren Commission was accurate? I say, probably the same number of people that believe Elvis is still alive.

Whenever we shape technology, it shapes us, both as individuals and as a society. We created cars, and cars turned us into motorists, auto mechanics, and commuters. Over the centuries we’ve populated our world with machines that help us do things we can’t or dont want to do ourselves. Our world has become so saturated with machines that they’ve faded into the background. We hardly notice them. We are reaching a new threshold. Our machines are getting networked, and enabling new forms of human machine symbiosis. We’re entering a new era where fifty billion machines are in constant communication, automating and orchestrating the movement and interactions among individuals, organizations, and cities.

Roger Hodgson has been at it for a long time. The ex-Supertramp member and über-talented multi-instrumentalist has been touring North America to the delight of fans everywhere. I discovered Hodgson's music at an early age. (As a kid, my first four albums were Rush's Moving Pictures , Genesis' Abacab , Styx's Paradise Theater , and Supertramp's Breakfast in America .) Since the time that he departed Supertramp, I have enjoyed his solo material. Today I have the honor of speaking with him about his current lineup and tour, future plans, and the music industry.

Image by via Wikimedia Commons It’s been a humanist truism for some time to say that Shakespeare speaks to every age, transcending his time and place through the sheer force of his universal genius. But any honest student first encountering the plays will tell you differently, as will many a seasoned scholar who works hard to place the writer and his work in historical context. Even onetime director of London’s National Theatre, Nicholas Hytner, once said , “I’ll admit that I hardly ever go to a performance of one of Shakespeare’s plays without experiencing blind panic during the first five minutes. I sit there thinking… I have no idea what these people are talking about.” Of course, none of that means we can’t learn to appreciate Shakespeare, and we do not need a graduate-level education to do so. But much of his archaic language and obscure references will always sound foreign to modern ears.

(thank you) LynnThe next questions are from HUNGARY. This person writes; My heart aches when I read about cruelty to animals. Those not earthly creatures like whales, dolphins, maybe even seals, elephants, etc…. isnt it possible to evacuate them to their original planet or to place them where they can heal? Is their presence absolutely necessary? COBRAThis will happen after The Event. The light forces cannot intervene on the planet at this moment completely at this moment. They have to wait for The Event to happen. (OK, thank you) LynnThis person is also writing from Hungary. According to channeled information, the Arvisura, the ancient history of the Hungarians, originates from the island of Atais, from the age of Atlantis, where the existing Hungarians were ’SEEDsouls. (Hungarian=magyar-MAGyar-MAG=SEED) The SEED is the guardian of life and knowledge.
