 - There will be an annular eclipse of the sun on 9/10 May, 2013, what is known as a ring of fire eclipse – in which a ring of the sun’s surface appears around the body of the moon’s silhouette.

Those in the Australian outback and parts of the Pacific Ocean will be able to view an annular solar eclipse. Elsewhere … a partial eclipse.

About 95% of the solar disk will be covered, and yet this is considered a partial eclipse. At no time will the sky darken, or stars pop into view. The remaining 5% of sun is so bright that those in the right place on Earth to see the eclipse will need to look at it through specially filtered glasses for the entire event.

 - The city of Nanchang is now pioneering the use of dogs to forecast tremors following the Sichuan quake that killed around 200 people.

China has a history of observing animal behaviour to predict earthquakes. Dogs as well as pigeons, chickens, ducks and other animals have been known to exhibit "abnormal behavior", unusual restlessness and signs of disorientation before quakes.

Authorities in the eastern city of Nanchang announced this week that canines were being used as a quake warning system. Apparently, they were obliged to reveal their initiative following a barrage of complaints from residents over so-called “false alarms” in the form of barking.

 - According to a new study, the ‘Cry’ or Bt toxins that Monsanto’s GMO crops have been genetically modified to produce are a lot more toxic to mammals than previously thought, primarily to the blood and bone marrow. This toxin is the same one built into Monsanto’s GMO Bt crops such as corn and soy as a pesticide. 

While Bt toxin has been used for some time in conventional farming as pesticide spray, now it has been engineered to be produced by and present throughout the inside of every cell and intercellular space of the plants themselves.

As our bodies contain more bacteria cells than human ones by number, there is a distinct possibility that this genetic material will become part of the human body’s bacterial bouquet, because bacteria use lateral transference of genetic material.

honeybee-11 - The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been exposed recently for its horrendous and deliberate assault against nature over several decades, after multiple investigations have uncovered its deliberate tampering with plants, insects and animals alike.

One such investigation has put an end to the mystery surrounding the death of millions of birds, with USDA documents revealing the organization’s role in the massive slaughter through a little-known government project known as the Bye Bye Blackbird program, created in the 1960's.

Are We The Last Generation of  'WILD' Humans? -Stay tuned, 'naturally' as long as possible. The day might come when that option will no longer exist.

Up until now, people have been able to freely think, and go about activities of daily life.  But what if the activities of daily life get altered as a by-product from the military-industrial complex to a point where thinking or having a natural body, eating real food, or breathing real air, stops?  Imagine a robotic world of Frankenstein creations, biological machines, sometimes referred to as 'trans-humanism'.

Have you heard of biopharmaceuticals?  Probably not on mainstream TV. This is a relatively new attempt at introducing medicines, into foods, through farming. There won't be a need to discuss vaccine safety, or adjuvant cost saving benefits. This process, of genetic farming (not GMO food) has already started, for example with 'golden' rice. People could be automatically medicated.

Girl, staring into future - Ovarian cancer is among the deadliest. It’s long been known that having the mumps provides protection against it. Now we have a study showing how the mumps vaccine could be leading to women’s deaths from ovarian cancer, by interfering with the natural preventive function of the mumps disease to prevent cancer.

"Prior to vaccination, mumps was generally a mild illness but could have serious sequelae including orchitis and sterility, meningitis and deafness, and pancreatitis. Nevertheless, our study suggests there could also have been unanticipated long-term anticancer benefits of a mumps infection, such as we have described in this paper."

 - The argument of survival subsistence goes like this: “You must accept a degree of lesser quality if we are to feed the world inexpensively. You can’t afford high quality food.”

We cannot afford low quality! We are made of food we eat. Eating lesser quality is not the solution. Eating better is. And frankly, you cannot afford high quality only because they have made conventional access methods expensive. So, we must return to simple methods of self-reliability to outmaneuver this covert extortion.

You may feel like you have no option but to eat their products, but remember your power to vote in the marketplace with your dollar. You may feel extorted to accept their selections. But you hold the power to change the industry. If you resist consuming these non-food ingestibles, you will force corporations to change their offerings.

 - Hidden deep in an Australian rainforest, the moving work of William Ricketts expresses the Aborigines’ profound connection with nature and the destruction that was wrought upon them.

Born in 1898, William Ricketts was an Australian sculptor and potter who developed a deep spiritual bond with the Aboriginal people of Central Australia. The time he spent with them between 1949 and 1960 inspired his work in the sanctuary.

Ricketts was appalled and saddened by the genocide of the Aboriginal people, with whom he felt a great kinship. The 92 intricate ceramic sculptures placed along the pathways appear to merge with the surrounding plant-life, providing a safe refuge for their departed spirits.

 - Did you know that flowers and bees communicate with one another about the amount and quality of pollen available using bioelectromagnetics?

In a recent study, scientists put electromagnetic detectors in flowers’ pollinators to watch the great romance of spring and determine if electrical signals given off by both bee and flower aided in communication. They also watched bee behavior to observe some interesting findings.

What scientists discovered is that flowers tell bees specific information, including how much pollen they have, if another bee has visited them recently, and what type of flower they are. Flowers and bees communicate effectively to aid bees in the work they do.

 - The social contract is about to be rewritten, with all the excitement and turmoil such things always entail.

Given present trends, top-down governance, favoring the powerful and the wealthy, will give way to governance in which wealth and power are far more fairly distributed.

May’s eclipses tell us that we will cross a political and economic point of no return. The error of our old ways will become painfully obvious enough to spur genuine change. Attitudes will shift even more strongly in favor of immediate social and economic reform. However, as will all the other events we have discussed in recent months, this process will not take place overnight. It will be yet another long-term transformative process among others now unfolding.

 - Plants are special in a number of ways. They can make music and sing, they dislike human noise and they also posses the capacity to learn and communicate.

But did you know that there is a hidden map inside flowers?

An aspect of flowers that has received perhaps the least attention is as a teacher of symmetry and geometry. In this sense, flowers can be treated as sources of remembering - a way of recalling our own wholeness, as well as awakening our inner power of recognition and consciousness. What is evident in the geometry of the face of a flower can remind us of the geometry that underlies all existence.
