thankful for water today and the turning of the seasons into spring

The deal that ignited an uprising…that you’ve probably never heard of…in 2009 a South Korean company, Daewoo, tried to buy half of Madagascar’s arable land for 99 years (they would have mowed down all of the forest to grow corn and biofuels)…..unbelievable! good on the people for rising up and putting a stop to it

Here are the stories and issues that caught my eye these last few weeks….

Fake news has become a trending phrase recently and although it always has existed , it’s funny to see it finally enter the mainstream consciousness. Perhaps this means we really are finally waking up…..now we have another trend… fake friends

In Japan people actually hire fake friends to attend events (pumping up social media numbers) so they don’t feel so lonely and are not seen as having few real friends…..bizarre

Crystal caves in Mexico are very hot & wondrous ……”It is tear inducingly beautiful down there. I wrote several poems about it actually.” Dr. Boston . The caves hold some of the largest crystals in the world mostly selenite

China’s garbage issues esp regarding incineration (which creates dioxins, etc. that end up accumulating at the north and south poles) for more on that phenomenon check out ‘Cold, Clear, and Deadly’ by Melvin Visser

Contrary to popular belief, not all Trump stands for is bad but much is…. and the two main issues that have the broadest impact are nuclear proliferation and the environment………More nukes! Stronger nukes! Trump’s talk of being top dog with nukes is insanity…..also the evisceration of environmental protection is concerning

Deep sea mining for rare-earth metals being considered despite concerns– the addiction to technology is a tough nut to crack

China bans North Korea coal imports

China bans carfentenil– a good move to stop a hideous drug epidemic- sadly the people pumping out these drugs seems to be able to produce new substances far faster than authorities can enact laws to stop them…but that is whole other issue….
