- With Gaza still under occupation, little being allowed in or out by Israel or Egypt, and 110,000 still homeless after Israel’s military assault, the difficulties faced are immense.
 
Hamas and Fatah have reached an agreement for the return of their unity government in Gaza.
 
This week, the Russell Tribunal met to discuss the massacre in Gaza: Ronnie Kasrils pointed out that ‘Millions of us in South Africa collectively recoiled from Israel's gruesome assault on the people of Gaza during those 51 nightmarish days of "Operation Protective Edge" and the attendant ongoing cruelty in the West Bank.

As the dust settled, we were left shocked beyond belief as we witnessed a community of 1.8 million in ruins; Khozaa, Shujaiyya, Beit Hanoun, with entire families and neighbourhoods, gone.’
 
Meanwhile, Israel continues to violate its ceasefire agreement in Gaza.

The time has come for the people of the world to bring this 66-year reign of terror to an end. Please take action wherever you are, and support some of the many ongoing campaigns and actions taking place around the world to lift the siege of Gaza, bring the war criminals to justice, and to Free Palestine.

 - Our individual minds, though distinct and uniquely ours, may also join with others in a kind of mental symphony that now and then becomes audible against a prevailing background of static.

That’s a research conclusion appearing today on the World Future Society’s website. Reported by futurist Richard Samson, Director of EraNova Institute, the conclusion is based on 16 years of analysis by the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), based in Princeton, New Jersey.

 - The number of parents deciding not to vaccinate their children is growing at an alarming rate – at least according to officials who are now nonplussed at the waking of humanity.

Considering the quite ‘heavy’ vaccination schedules proposed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), parents should be refusing vaccinations. Since the 1950′s, the number of vaccines children under 6 are expected to obtain has grown by 414%. Apparently, at least Californian parents have had enough and are refusing to immunize their kindergarten-aged children.

- We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience, and while our Spiritual practice is undoubtedly important, so many of us neglect how Human we are! We are living here, on this Earth, in these human bodies for a reason. We came down here purposefully and it’s time to make the most of it. It’s time to build real mastery in our bodies, minds and lives.

We are given just one body in this life as our vehicle to navigate this fascinating planet. Just as you would treat your dream car, and take extra special care of it, we must properly maintain our bodies, minds and goals for optimal performance. Would you let your dream car turn into a junker or take care of it so it becomes a classic?

 - ‘Cross-bred crops get fit faster,’ says an important new article published in the journal, Nature. Within its wizened lines is advice on how to breed better corn without resorting to growing GMO.

Natasha Gilbert explains in the article how genetic engineering simply doesn’t stack up in comparison to conventional breeding efforts to create drought-resistant corn for countries like Africa that are water-scarce.

 - 10/4 ~ Sun (your Source) ~square~ Pluto (transformation): Now for the most potent of the transits for the week. You may encounter or even oppose powerful pressures and forces exerted upon you, both from without and within. The way you live and exert your energies will be tested today, perhaps forcing you to make radical changes in the areas of your life that you find are not working very well...

10/4 ~ Mars (courage) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom): This is a powerful combo, however, it has to be integrated and consciously expressed to yield the best results, otherwise you may miss an opportunity to discover some new gift or talent you have, or perhaps an improved philosophy that serves you better at this time...

 - We know: Beginning a series on current ocean news seems like a bleak proposition. Between the expanding garbage patches and relentless rise of warming seas, positive stories aren't exactly growing on trees. So we've gone to the trouble to net you 36 whole reasons to be excited about the future of the high seas—including magic-seeming plastic removal tech, more facts confirming the radness of sharks, and (of course) a cute baby seal video.

1. After learning about the harmful effects of ocean-borne plastic, a group of fifth and sixth grade students persuaded Dunkin' Donuts to phase out the use of foam cups. These kids are superheroes.

2. The Vermont Sail Freight Project is ditching oil to deliver fresh produce and other goods from Vermont to New York by sailboat. Not bad for a landlocked state.

3. California stepped it up yet again for the climate to ban micro-beads cosmetics and keep them out of the ocean.

http://themindunleashed.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Navajo-3.jpg - On Friday September 26th in Window Rock, Arizona, leaders of the Navajo Nationand the US Government will sign a settlement that compensates the Navajo Nation for the federal government’s mishandling of their land during the past 60 years. This will be the largest ever settlement distributed by the US Government to a Native American tribe.

The Navajo Nation is the largest Native American tribe by both population and mass, with some 300,000 members spanning 27,000 square miles of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. From 1946 – 2012, the US Government held in trust some 14 million acres of Navajo land from which it extracted coal, gas, uranium and oil in what has been deemed an ‘irresponsible manner.’ This payment will settle the lawsuit filed by the Navajo Nation in 2006.

Photo credit: University of Michigan - A new study in the journal Science suggests that much of the water on Earth and throughout our solar system likely originated as ices that formed in interstellar space. If so, it means that water may be more widespread in planetary systems than previously thought.

The researchers’ work addresses a debate about just how far back in galactic history our planet and our solar system’s water formed. Were the molecules in comet ices and terrestrial oceans born with the system itself—in the planet-forming disk of dust and gas that circled the young sun 4.6 billion years ago? Or did the water originate even earlier, in the cold, ancient molecular cloud that spawned the sun and that planet-forming disk?

The new research suggests that between 30 and 50 percent came from a molecular cloud. That would make it roughly a million years older than the solar system.

 - A team of German and Czech researchers spent two years evaluating the positions in which dogs relieve themselves, and have discovered that our canine companions seem to possess an inner compass. And it could be this inner compass that guides lost dogs home from great distances.  

The researchers studied 70 canines from 37 different breeds and learned that regardless of breed, size, or gender, dogs tend to orient themselves north-to-south when they poop or pee. This only occurred consistently, however, when the Earth’s magnetic field was stable.

These study results provide additional evidence that animals detect electromagnetic waves humans cannot, and that in addition to their keen sense of smell and hearing, dogs also have a magnetic sense.

 - The Russell Tribunal on Palestine’s Emergency Session on Israel’s Operation Protective Edge held yesterday in Brussels has found evidence of war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes of murder, extermination and persecution and also incitement to genocide.

The Jury [1] reported: ‘The cumulative effect of the long-standing regime of collective punishment in Gaza appears to inflict conditions of life calculated to bring about the incremental destruction of the Palestinians as a group in Gaza.’

‘The Tribunal emphasises the potential for a regime of persecution to become genocidal in effect. In light of the clear escalation in the physical and rhetorical violence deployed in respect of Gaza in the summer of 2014, the Tribunal emphasises the obligation of all state parties to the 1948 Genocide Convention ‘to take such action under the Charter of the United Nations as they consider appropriate for the prevention and suppression of acts of genocide.’

 - We’re undergoing an amazing transformation. Absolutely diametrically opposed to the constant, gradual attempt by elitists to shut down humanity via eons of engineered subjugation, we’re being consciously and vibrationally liberated by the very nature of the Universe in spite of all their efforts.

It’s not readily apparent to most, but it’s very clearly there.

It’s subtle and yet obvious at the same time. Knowledge of this change or shift in consciousness is experiential. It appears in the form of social trends and changes, but once someone crosses that threshold of awakening they’re already living in that new reality.

 - Life took a drastic change for nine circus lions in Peru this week, when they were each freed from a life in captivity. As part of a massive move to free the country’s circus animals, rescuers placed the lions in a quarantine facility to prepare them for their eventual move to sanctuaries.

The rescues, named Operation Spirit of Freedom, were spearheaded by Animal Defenders International (ADI), along with the help of Peru’s SERFOR (wildlife and environment), ATFFS (enforcement) government bodies. The mission was funded in large part by a donation from TV personality Bob Barker.
