Ryan Holiday made his bones as a PR guy and then revolted against the industry in his tell-all book Trust Me, Im Lying and then, after much soul-searching, came to embrace the ancient philosophy of stoicism. His latest work, including Ego Is The Enemy, are handbooks for the modern startup stoic. This week I talked to Holiday about his books and how stoicism can help us all calm down Read More

But again at the same time he can also be influenced by the positive faction, by the light. AaronDo the Pleiadians view him as a force for light or dark? COBRA – I have already answered this question. (right, thank you) LynnSo Cobra, in the same vein, Trump has just approved the pipeline that goes through North and South Dakota through the Indian land. I have heard that it has been re-routed but it’s not confirmed. Would you say that his approval of this also represents his own self-serving interests? COBRATo a certain degree, yes. He’s basically wants to secure more jobs for the Americans. He wants to make American oil industry stronger. He wants……. you know his polices, so this is basically what is behind his action (OK, thank you) LynnThere have been reports that bombs in DC and New York were disarmed. Are there similar efforts being attempted to place bombs in other nations where maintenance of control by Cabal persist? COBRAOK.

Airport resistance is the biggest step forward by the U.S. public in years. Why do I say that? Because this is unfunded, largely unpartisan activism that is largely selfless, largely focused on helping unknown strangers, driven by compassion and love, not political ideology, greed, or vengeance, and in line with activism around the globe. It's also targeted at the location of the harm, directly resisting the injustice, and achieving immediate partial successes, including very meaningful successes for certain individuals. It's gaining support from people never before engaged in any activism. And it shows no signs of any significant undesirable side-effects. This is a movement to be built on, and I have an idea what a next step should be. Of course it is not at all uncommon for people to selflessly act for strangers. Much of the charity industry is driven by that sort of generosity year after year.

For the two seasons of Brooke Knows Best , Glenn Douglas Packard encouraged Hulk Hogan’s baby girl to pursue her dreams of stardom. They were goals he knew well, having already conquered the dance world through his Emmy-nominated choreography. The multi-talented Packard says there was one long-time love, though, which took years to tackle. “I have always done lectures and talked about everybody always following their passions and doing what they love,” said Packard. “One of my passions happened to be horror and horror films.” For years, Packard’s love of scary movies took a backseat to other pursuits, namely dance. Told as a child he might never walk again, the Michigan native not only did, he became one of the entertainment industry’s most sought-after choreographers. By the time he landed the VH1 reality series gig as Brooke Hogan’s gay best friend and roommate, his resume was brimming with success.

C. Archeologists have found somewhere between five and ten thousand copper mines in the area, and estimate that around five hundred thousand tons of copper were mined. Except, barely any of that copper exists among Native American artifacts whereas in Europe and the Middle East there are more bronze artifacts than can be accounted for by the copper availability in those regions. So it’s pretty obvious that those who ran the bronze industry back then were making trips to Michigan and other places like Cornwall in England to get their copper and tin to make the bronze. Copper mass recovered from ancient copper mine. The other curious thing is that ancient megalithic sites are found wherever these global mariners went. They’re positioned all along the global trade routes. I’m talking about India, Indonesia, Japan, Easter Island, Bolivia and Peru, Egypt, Greece, Italy, England and Ireland.

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. Check out one of his clips here: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Earlier this month, Planet Money aired an interview with a Wells Fargo whistleblower who was fired for trying to alert the bank to the millions of criminal frauds being committed against its customers, and we learned that the whistleblower had been added to a confidential blacklist used by the finance industry, preventing her from ever getting work in the industry again.

They put on these shows with it. The reporters are embedded with the troops on one side. they play the patriotic music. They put the flags up. It's all propaganda of which the Third Reich would've been proud. It's not journalism and so whether it's the media that's responding or causing this, I think it's some combination. The public in this country is sort of dumbed down and forced not even to think about what these things mean. What does it mean that we are in wars in all of these places? What does it mean? What does it mean that our largest industry is war-making and killing equipment? It is and we don't talk about the fact. We don't even know that these wars are going on in many of these places. We never discussed them. They're not on the news Pat : Some of those very companies who are responsible for manufacturing so much equipment own media companies.
