 - America has two long-standing symbols for freedom: the bald eagle and the wild mustang. You've seen these majestic wild horses in TV or magazine ads, running unbridled across the open range, dust in their wake. They evoke the boundless West and our nation's pioneer spirit.

What you don't see is the helicopters chasing them. Roundups sound romantic, but in the case of mustangs, the process is cruel and brutal. Despite federal protection, the horses are treated like pests on their native range because, it turns out, the West isn't that open after all.

The roundups start with the helicopters, which swoop down and terrorize the animals, chasing them to awaiting corrals. The pursuit is dangerous and terrifying. Many horses are injured and some die.

 - How is it possible that the abrupt climate shift unfolding on our planet is not creating nearly as much heat in wealthy nations as compared to poor countries? This, now statistically proven scenario, is yet another glaring red flag to confirm the ongoing global climate engineering insanity being carried out by militarized / industrialized nations. Highly toxic and environmentally devastating global geoengineering programs are a primary tool and weapon of the more powerful nations. The worldwide weather modification assault has been used to confuse and divide populations in regard to the true state of the climate and the true extent of the threat that we collectively face. The ongoing effort by the climate engineers to mask the full degree of climate damage from first world populations has been aggressive and consistent.

Recent studies have now proven that a completely unnatural global temperature scenario is taking place which would not be possible without the existence of ongoing climate intervention programs. Temperatures in high income nations are rising at a far slower rate than low income nations.

 - As the bee population continues to decline, many people are becoming increasingly concerned. Some in Cedar Rapids Iowa, however, are now taking action to do what they can to prevent bees from disappearing completely.

The plan coming out of Cedar Rapids seeks to seed 188 acres with wild flowers and native prairie grasses. Eventually the city wants to seed 1,000 acres of bee habitats.

The 1,000 Acre Pollinator Initiative is a result of a partnership between the Monarch Research Project and Cedar Rapids.

 - A few years ago, a shaman in Honduras taught me an extremely useful technique that gives you clarity on your path and dissolves stress and anxiety. It’s had a pretty profound effect on my life and today I’d like to share it with you.

Like much of the healing wisdom that comes from native cultures, this teaching began with an observation about nature.

As we sat together, the curandero asked me how I felt about deer. Yes, our furry four-legged friends that frolic in the forest.

 - Members of Native nations from across the country will begin a four-day demonstration against the Trump administration and the Dakota Access Pipeline in Washington, DC today, Tuesday, 7 March, culminating with a march on the White House on Friday, 10 March.

"They want us to believe the fight is over—but we can still win this. We can unite in peaceful, prayerful resistance against this illegal pipeline," said Chairman Dave Archambault II of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. "Now, we are calling on all our Native relatives and allies to rise with us. We must march against injustice—Native nations cannot continue to be pushed aside to benefit corporate interests and government whim."

 - You may have already seen the headlines: Italy’s Mount Etna recently spewed an impressive amount of lava during what is now its second eruption within the last year. Mount Etna represents Europe’s biggest and most powerful volcano, and its eruption poses a hazard to air traffic and potentially the surrounding villages and homes on the lower slopes of the volcano.

Volcano eruptions aren’t as rare as many people assume them to be. Although Mount Etna is the latest volcano to make big headlines, there are numerous other eruptions occurring all over the world. Volcanoes are erupting practically everywhere: India’s only volcano is active again after 150 years, and four of Iceland’s main volcanos are expected to erupt soon, to name a few. This begs the question: Is something happening to the Earth’s core?

 - Norway’s government recently paved the way for recreational hunting of wolves, which are endangered in Scandinavia. The current law states that wolves can be killed only if they represent a “potential nuisance” for sheep or other livestock. Now hunters will be allowed to kill wolves for “for recreational and cultural considerations,” local media report.

WWF-Norway's CEO Nina Jensen slammed the move, calling it “one of the ugliest examples of Norwegian nature management in modern history.”

“It is beyond comprehension that one would change an established law in order to shoot more endangered animals, particularly in a country like Norway, which strives to keep an environmental profile.”

 - A ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court has forced the Smithsonian Institution to release classified documents dating from the early 1900’s.

Proving the organization had been involved in a historical cover-up of evidence showing giant human remains in the tens of thousands that were uncovered across America that were ordered to be destroyed by upper-level administrators to ensure protection of the mainstream chronology of human evolution in that time.

“There has been a major cover up by western archaeological institutions since the early 1900′s to make us believe that America was first colonized by Asian peoples migrating through the Bering Strait 15,000 years ago, when in fact, there are hundreds of thousands of burial mounds all over America which the Natives claim were there a long time before them, and that show traces of a highly developed civilization, complex use of metal alloys and where giant human skeleton remains are frequently found but still go unreported in the media and news outlets” he explains.

 - Scientists are none the wiser on the origin of cosmic rays despite trawling through seven years of observational data from NASA’s Fermi Large Area Telescope.

A study published in Physical Review Letters details efforts of scientists to examine the “largest ever sample of high-energy cosmic-ray electron and positron events since the beginning of its operation.”

The team examined nearly seven years of data from the Fermi Large Area Telescope - the principal scientific instrument on the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope spacecraft but fell short on pinpointing the direction from which the elusive cosmic rays originate.

 - Please sign the petition to stop the annual Yulin Dog Meat festival in China.

This medieval way of treating animals sits at complete odds with how China has progressed as a society in recent years. This is not about cultural differences this is about the most basic of ethics and about treating animals with compassion. It's plain to see that the practices carried out at Yulin represent a new low for China.

Those animals we choose to be our working companions, our eyes when we are blind, our guardians of the family home, to share our food and to be our best friends for hundreds of years are suffering and are being slaughtered in the most monstrous of ways. There are many videos on YouTube to evidence this, although they are not easy to watch. Despite how you feel about eating any animal, no living, sentient being should be abused or tortured for any reason, and no right-minded person can rationally argue otherwise.  Dogs and cats suffer unspeakable horrors at the hands of farmers, traders and butchers - beaten, torched with fire, boiled alive, etc.  Not all these animals are "farmed" - many are beloved, stolen pets. 

The medieval treatment of companion animals in Yulin provides a cruel contrast to the slick, sophisticated, modern image that China tries so hard to portray to the outside world.

 - We live in a fearful world with exposure to a deluge of stressors everyday. As much as fear is a result of reacting to the actual or perceived events in our lives, it is also a biological function of the human body, and when equipped with an understanding of how the body manages the emotional system, we can easily outsmart it, tricking ourselves into emotional balance.

This perspective is scientifically validated by new research from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago Illinois, which discovered how the various rhythmic patterns of breath profoundly impact memory recall and the emotional body, specifically the fear response.

The brain creates electrical impulses which link physical functions to emotional reactions, and the electrical activity of the brain is deeply affected by our breathing patterns. The outcome of this balance is determined by whether or not we are inhaling or exhaling, as well as if we are breathing through the nose or the mouth, as each variable creates a different electrical response within the brain.

 - A proposed class action lawsuit filed in Chicago has accused PayPal of deception over charitable donations, when it diverted funds without informing the donor or the intended recipient, despite confirming the donation in emails.

Terry Kass, the lead plaintiff in the case, claims she used PayPal’s platform to give $3,250 to thirteen charities, including ten Chicago ones, in December 2016. Despite receiving an email confirming she had made the donations to the designated charity, she discovered the company failed to distribute the money to 10 of them. Only $100 was sent to three charities of her choosing, with the rest withheld by the company.
