LWR is assisting these Arhuaco farmers as they transition to producing cocoa - a crop that thrives in the new conditions - by supplying technical knowledge to better maintain their cocoa plantations. LWR is also linking the Arhuaco farmers with buyers, including Pacari Chocolate, a world-renowned luxury confectioner based in Ecuador. "They're doing quite well, given the circumstances," said Emilio Huertas, LWR's Colombia country director. Those conditions include water scarcity and adaptation to change. "Cocoa as a crop is new for them," says Huertas. "It's not a traditional crop, so this has been a cultural adaptation." This is just one example of a nationwide effort to jump start development in the new countryside. The implications of this effort are enormous. It is the linchpin to keeping the peace and ensuring the long-term stability of Colombia.

The University of the Witwatersrand is facing a financial crisis and is reported to be facing its first deficit in just over a decade. The institution has attributed this state of affairs to a number of factors. These include last year's #FeesMustFall protests, the growing amount of historical debt, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme and Donors defaulting on their pledges. The amount due to Wits is R405 million. Late last year the University announced an 8% fee increase for the 2017 academic year, saying it is the only way to remain financially sustainable and fulfill its institutional obligations. Meanwhile, government has announced that it has allocated R15.2 billion to needy students struggling to enroll at tertiary institutions for this year. But what will it take to resolve the tertiary funding issue? For more news, visit: http://www.sabc.co.za/news

The communication barrier may be preventing them from sharing that with us, but perhaps we've been missing something? Although often ridiculed, many scientists have been studying and publishing papers on human telepathy for decades, making some unbelievable observations with statistically significant results. In fact, in 1999 a statistics professor at UC Irvine published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helps prevent a heart attack. Some more examples will be provided later in the article, but for now, if you'd like to see a selected list of downloadable peer-reviewed journal articles reporting studies of psychic phenomena, mostly published in the 21st century, you can click here . Telepathy is one ability included in the parapsychology group. Others include remote viewing , near death experiences (NDEs), and out of body experiences (OBEs).

“If you consolidated them into one location, it would basically take out the power for the San Francisco metropolitan area for two months,” Thomas explained. These numbers put the quantity of outages confirmed at being caused by state actors into sharp relief: even if you include the Ukrainian attacks allegedly initiated by Russia alongside Stuxnet’s Iranian attack , frogs still narrowly beat humans in a 3-2 thriller. The final slide of Thomaspresentation sums up his point nicely: “Yes, there is a risk, (info and physical) security at most power companies is pretty appalling, but that risk is nowhere near the level of hype that cyberwar hawks have been spouting.” In this context, presumablyhawksrefers to those aggressively seeking action, rather than a subsection of the 434 bird related outages, but it doesnt hurt to ask.

Her job was to type out documents that related to crashed ufo craft that had come down all over the Earth’s surface and had then been retrieved by American special forces/recovery teams.

Babylonian science was thus, perhaps, a heritage from a much older culture. [!!] Holy Moly. What Dr. Farrell is saying is that a body of secret knowledge a body that includes far more than just some old map has been carefully handed down and protected by an interlocking network of secret societies and fortified temples for thousands and thousands of years. And by fortified temple, we must, of necessity include that great temple in Rome the Vatican. WHAT DID THE POPE KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT? The picture that our jigsaw is beginning to form is that every elitist and his grandma knew about Antarctica as recently as one thousand years ago. This is why I softly chuckle to myself everytime I see some new Internet claim about the sudden revelations of pyramids and hidden cities. Read my lips: the Babylonian Bankster Priesthood has known all about this for a long, long time.

The following is a statement from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on the passing of the Gemini and Apollo astronaut: “Gene Cernan, Apollo astronaut and the last man to walk on the moon, has passed from our sphere, and we mourn his loss. Leaving the moon in 1972, Cernan said, ‘As I take these last steps from the surface for some time into the future to come, I’d just like to record that America’s challenge of today has forged man’s destiny of tomorrow.’ Truly, America has lost a patriot and pioneer who helped shape our country's bold ambitions to do things that humankind had never before achieved.” According to the family, details regarding services will be announced in the coming days. Note: package may include some silent video.

Paddington 2 The gang returns for the eagerly-awaited follow-up to the delightful Paddington . The original movie was the highest grossing family movie to not be made in America, and for the follow-up, Paul King is directing again, having co-written the screenplay with Simon Farnaby (from the mighty Yonderland ). The cast is being led by returnees Ben Whishaw (as the voice of Paddington), Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Peter Capaldi and Julie Walters. New additions this time include Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson, the latter playing the beautifully namedKnucklesMcGinty.

Lucija Tomlijenovic ( source ) There are numerous studies which have examined aluminum's potential to induce toxic effects, and this is clearly established in medical literature, and has been for a long time. ( source ) If significant aluminum load exceeds the body's capacity to get rid of it, it is deposited into various tissues that include bone, brain, liver, heart, spleen, and muscle. Aluminum is found in cigarettes, cosmetics, food, medicines (aspirin), and much much more. It's in our environment, and we are surrounded by it. This is concerning, because aluminum was not really around until the industrial revolution. Today, it shows up in so many products. And we know, from the work of Richard Flarend , that aluminum is commonly absorbed into the body, into areas it shouldn't be, and has been found in various urine samples from multiple studies examining this topic.
