- The Dilma Rousseff administration is doing everything in its power to push through construction of the destructive Belo Monte Dam in the Amazon – without the approval of the tens of thousands of people who would be affected.

President Rousseff filed a complaint on 24 August demanding the overturning of the historic August 14th decision by a regional federal court (TRF-1) that suspended the Belo Monte Dam due to a lack of prior consultations with affected indigenous peoples.

Please stand up for the rights of indigenous peoples threatened by Belo Monte!

 - New discoveries suggests that protostars may be seeding the universe with water. These stellar embryos shoot jets of material from their north and south poles as their growth is fed by infalling dust that circles the bodies in vast disks.

“If we picture these jets as giant hoses and the water droplets as bullets, the amount shooting out equals a hundred million times the water flowing through the Amazon River every second,” said a postdoctoral astronomer in the Netherlands.

- Fork in the road. People are adapting to changing financial realities. Psychological and spiritual issues are sparking big personal decisions. Important relationships are in flux. Nothing decisive seems to happen, though. The narratives don’t change.

However, in September, even seemingly small decisions can have big consequences. Paths will diverge sharply. Trend lines will bend dramatically.

 - Far more than a simple pump, as was once believed, the heart is now recognized by scientists as a highly complex system with its own functional “brain.”

Compared to the electromagnetic field produced by the brain, the electrical component of the heart’s field is about 60 times greater in amplitude, and permeates every cell in the body.

Experiments have found remarkable evidence that the heart’s electromagnetic field can transmit information between people, and have been able to measure an exchange of heart energy between individuals up to 5 feet apart.
