Canada Donating Ebola Vaccine

Canada has developed an Ebola vaccine. The Canadian government owns it, not a corporation. Canada is donating the vaccine to help fight the Ebola outbreak. The first vials will be sent to the World Health Organization on Monday, October 20, 2014.

Sounds promising, right? Keep reading…

“The Government of Canada has licensed the rights to NewLink Genetics through its wholly owned subsidiary BioProtection Systems to further develop the product for use in humans.”

“The World Health Organization, in consultation with partners, including the health authorities from the affected countries, will guide and facilitate how the vaccine is distributed and used.”
http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?mthd=index&crtr.page=1&nid=894989

The rights to this vaccine are being licensed to a U.S. company, NewLink Genetics.

The CEO and 2nd largest shareholder of NewLink is Charles J. Link Jr., M.D. However, the largest shareholder is Stine Seed Farm, Inc. Most people have not heard of Stine Seed. Stine Seed has made great contributions to growing soybean and corn by creating the “Roundup Ready” soybean seeds. In fact, Stine Seed sells to Monsanto.

Now, the obvious question –

Why is a vaccine for humans being licensed to a company that is pretty much governed by Harry Stine, the owner of the largest private seed company in the world, who breeds soybean and corn genetics which he then sells to Monsanto?

As for the vaccine, it would be wonderful if it could come directly from Canada.

Second question… Why does everything seem to be connected to Monsanto?

Third question… Who exactly are the “partners” of the WHO?

Symptoms of Ebola

Wondering about Ebola?

NPR.org has several articles documenting the history of this virus, including the symptoms of ebola.

Symptoms: It can take anywhere from two to 21 days after infection for symptoms to kick in, but once they do, the pain is excruciating. It starts off with a fever, muscle pains, vomiting and diarrhea. It also makes the victims so weak that it leaves them bedridden. As the virus spreads, it can shut down major organs, such as the kidneys and liver. And the infection can cause internal and external bleeding from openings in the body, including eyes, ears, nose, rectum and even pores. The peak of the illness is the first seven to 10 days, during which patients are most likely to die.

Where is War Money Coming From

Congress continues to focus the general public on the make believe problem of not having enough money to spend on the poor, the elderly, the sick and the homeless.

Yet we continue to hear about their plans to send money to other countries, especially money for wars, ammunition, and the military.

Where is everyone's common sense?

If there is no money to take care of the dying people in America, then where is all of this war money coming from?

Until this nation realizes that sustaining life is more honorable than taking life, we will continue to struggle as a nation.

It's karma. It's a universal law of nature. You reap what you sow.

Meanwhile, I find it uplifting to hear a movie star or other famous person using their fame to try to bring some common sense and humanity to their fans.

The real answer to all of America's money problems is so simple.

Yet the "people" continue to ignore the solution.

From the mouths of the wealthy...

Raise taxes on the 1%.

Stop allowing corporations tax cuts even if they locate in another country. If half of their profits come from the U.S., then they should pay their fair share of taxes.

Such a simple and fair solution is so obvious, yet no one sees it?

I'm baffled by the blindness.

I Love a People

George Catlin's Creed


This is from a lovely video I saw on FaceBook. You can view the video here: 





Here is the narrative:

"You know there was an artist, a very perceptive, very famous artist back in the first half of the 1800s. It was called the 19th Century.  And for 8 to 9 years he lived among the Indians.  He traveled among many of them, and he got to know them.

Sometime after 1840 he wrote... a book.  Many books, in fact.  And I want you to listen to George Catlin's Creed.

George Catlin, wow, what a man.  He said:

I love a people that have always made me welcome to the very best that they had.
I love a people who are honest without laws, who have no jails and no poorhouses.
I love a people who keep the commandments without ever having read or heard them preached from the pulpit.
I love a people who never swear or take the name of God in vain.
I love a people "who love their neighbors as they love themselves."
I love a people who worship God without a Bible, for I believe that God loves them also.
I love a people whose religion is all the same, and who are free from religious animosities.
I love a people who have never raised a hand against me, or stolen my property, when there was no law to punish either.
I love and don't fear mankind where God has made and left them, for they are his children.
I love the people who have never fought a battle with the white man, except on their own ground.
I love a people who live and keep what is their own without lock and keys.
I love a people who do the best they can. And oh how I love a people who don't live for the love of money.


George Catlin's Creed (alternate link to video)


George Catlin was an artist that spent 8 years living among the tribal people of the Great Plains of America during the "pre-civilization" days. He also had this short narrative to explain his reason and observations for writing the above creed.

"All history goes to prove that when first visited by civilized people, the American Indians have been found friendly and hospitable ---- from the days of Christopher Columbus to the Lewis and Clark expedition ... And so also have a great many travelers, including myself: Nowhere to my knowledge, have they stolen a six-pence worth of my property. Though in their country there are no laws to punish for theft. I have visited 48 different tribes, and feel authorized to say that the North American Indian in his native state is honest, hospitable, faithful, brave,... and an honorable and religious human being..."

Energy Modernization Act

The "Energy Modernization Act" sounds like an act that's on target for making things better for Americans, right?

WRONG!

While other states are demanding that chemicals used in fracking (hydraulic fracturing) be revealed, North Carolina has taken a step backwards.

The Energy Modernization Act will actually prosecute anyone who reveals what those deadly chemicals are.
Fracking Damage

Yes, you read that right.

You may be thinking that all of the problems that have resulted from fracking are due to poor equipment and processes that are not regulated - and you would be right.

The problem is that no one seems to be able to make sure that their "process" is safe and therefore no one should be allowed to continue fracking unless and until the procedure is not damaging our drinking water.

Personally, I believe the damage will go much deeper than that, simply because of the process itself. It is not logical to do this to the planet. The effects are still being studied. Why are we taking chances with our lives?



Republican legislators have sponsored a bill—the so-called “Energy Modernization Act,” SB 786—that, among other things, includes mandatory jail time for anyone who discloses what dangerous chemicals are used in the fracking process. 

The bill does allow for emergency disclosure to “first-responders” like firefighters or health care workers, but then requires them to sign a confidentiality agreement. 

Sign the petition: Stop North Carolina’s sweetheart deal to the fracking industry, by urging the state legislature to reject SB 786.
Sign the petition here.

Incantation Bowls to Capture Evil

Incantation bowls - sound like some kind of magical witchy thing, doesn't it?

But it's not.

Ancient bowls have been found that date between the 2nd an 8th centuries AD. They were used to capture evil, the devil, demons, etc. It was believed they had the power to do so.

Interesting that this "need" to be protected arose AFTER the coming of Jesus, historically speaking.

Also interesting, is that the script inside the bowl is just bits and pieces of "real" languages, indicating that were created to pacify the public, at least on some of them.

I firmly believe that we can give power to anything we wish, so if they believed that these bowls protected them, then that faith would be enough unless the faith was tainted with fear, in which case any item or belief would be rendered useless.

Then again, I would believe that they capture negative energies, rather than giving a specific name to the entity, such as devil or demon. How do we know that all of those energies which we consider to be demonic actually consider themselves to be demons? Maybe they're just angry spirits wreaking havoc on all those people that they despised while on earth.

Okay, yes, I jest - a bit. But IF I was to give such power to a "bowl," I would definitely not place limits on which type of negativity it should capture.

I'd say - "Get 'em all!"

I continue to be fascinated learning about ancient religions, practices and the cultures of those who came before us.

The picture below is from Ancient Peoples.

You can learn more about this practice and other bowl discoveries from Biblical Archaeology's Magic Incantation Bowls.

6th-8th Century AD
Late Post Sasanian 
The text is a ‘pseudoscript’ devised by scribes to give illiterate clients the impression that they were valid incantations. Some bear close resemblance to identifiable forms of writing.

The Lovely Eucalyptus

I use Eucalyptus Oil for many purposes and today I stumbled across this lovely Eucalyptus tree from the Phillipines.

Truly - the lovely eucalyptus tree with it's rainbow bark is as pleasing to the eye as the aroma of the eucalyptus oil is to the soul.

They both life my spirits.

I wonder if I can grow them in South Carolina?

I Need to Move Beyond

I read some poignant words which were posted to FB tonight by Gabby Bernstein, who is one of my favorite inspiring people currently. It's amazing how the universe gives you what you need - if you are paying attention. Thankfully, I was - at least tonight.

If, like me, you've ever wondered why you keep repeating the same circumstance with new people, or the same relationships - again, with new people, then this quote may help you.


I found it more of a lesson I needed to learn, about a lesson I need to learn, so I found myself setting it up as if for a big screen presentation. Maybe now it will hold my attention and my awareness.

I can honestly say I have thought of this concept before, but not quite in this way. I need to move beyond... I love that and I choose today, this Easter Sunday of 2014, to move beyond and I look forward to the next experience with gratitude.

Happy Easter!

AMAZING benefits of Ginger Root



 
Learn the AMAZING benefits of Ginger Root!

Personal experience with ginger root about 2 years ago...

I placed a tiny slice of ginger root on my daughter's palm to help heal a fairly deep puncture wound that was refusing to close up and heal.

I then placed a bandage over the slice of ginger root that was over the open wound at the bottom of her palm, and she went to bed. 

The ginger was absorbed by the body apparently, restoring her palm to good health, because it was nowhere to be found the next morning. 

Believe you me, we looked - shook the sheets, checked the floor, etc. 

This is an amazing food that 

Mother Nature has given us for healing. 

I now take it in supplement form too.
