 - Vincenzo Fornaro’s farm is less than a mile from the steel mill. His entire stash of 600 sheep had to be killed over a decade ago, and he’s since been forbidden from raising livestock or crops for food. So instead, as CBS News reported, he’s growing weed—not to smoke or to sell, but to pull the steel mill’s toxins out of his soil.

Fornaro has planted massive stands of industrial hemp on his farm. He’s employing a tactic called “phytoremediation,” in which plants are used to remove heavy metals, radioactive material and other bad stuff from the earth.

Industrial hemp has been used to clean up deadly pollutants before, perhaps most famously near the site of the deadly nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl in what is now Ukraine (and where, it should not go unstated, thousands of people are still at work at the power station, which produces six percent of the nation’s electricity). In the mid-1990s, a company called Phytotech worked with researchers and a Ukraine-based seed bank to plant thousands of hemp plants in and around Chernobyl.

 - Have you ever checked your phone and gotten the feeling that you’re being watched?

Has an advertisement for a product or place ever popped up on your screen that you were just talking about?

When security researcher Mustafa Al-Bassam stepped into a McDonald’s last year, he “almost had a heart attack” when he was prompted to download the fast food restaurant’s app on his phone.

No, it’s not a coincidence. Your every move is being watched. Monitored. Analysed.

- On Sunday, 26 February, Earth Heal hosted the New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse group distant healing event for 208 participants around the world, roughly 70% people and 30% animals.

The treatment process was facilitated by Edna Spennato in Bahia, Brazil. The healing energy was anchored with the help of four human surrogates in three countries: one in South Africa, one in Argentina and two in the USA.

Many of the participants reported that they and/or their animal companions experienced powerful energies and sensations during and after the treatment, as well as detoxification processes in the days following the event.

Excerpts from the feedback received after the event are shown below.

Our next group distant healing event for 2017 will be happening on the Equinox of Monday, 20 March. All are welcome to participate. More info to be posted soon!.

A patient undergoes chemotherapy  - Patients should be warned about the dangers of chemotherapy after research showed that cancer drugs are killing up to 50 per cent of patients in some hospitals.

For the first time researchers looked at the numbers of cancer patients who died within 30 days of starting chemotherapy, which indicates that the medication is the cause of death, rather than the cancer.

The study by Public Health England and Cancer Research UK found that across England around 8.4 per cent of patients with lung cancer, and 2.4 per cent of breast cancer patients died within a month.

But in some hospitals the figure was far higher. In Milton Keynes the death rate for lung cancer treatment was 50.9 per cent, although it was based on a very small number of patients.

 - UK badgers need your urgent help. UK badger culls are to be debated in Westminster on 27th March - please urge your MP to attend the debate and oppose further killing.

Almost 15,000 badgers have been shot over the past four years as part of the Government’s strategy to ‘control the spread of bovine tuberculosis in cattle’. Culling has taken place across ten zones in seven English counties.

None of the killed badgers were tested for bovine TB. Controlled shooting has been rejected by the British Veterinary Association because of animal welfare concerns. The culls have cost the taxpayer an estimated £40 million to date, with no sign of any benefit.

heart disease prevention - A study was published in the American Journal of Cardiology, stating that turmeric extract can decrease risks of heart attack by 56%. This discovery backs up earlier research printed in the Nutrition Research journal in 2012 that said eating this spice or consuming supplements of it can improve one’s cardiovascular health as much as aerobic exercise.

Think about it. For those who exercise for the purpose of boosting their heart health, a pinch of turmeric can help achieve the same goal!

It all comes down to the primary polyphenol in this golden spice, called curcumin. This ingredient is responsible for turmeric’s bright color and for the active properties that can empower vascular function.

This incredible ability of curcumin has been particularly helpful for postmenopausal women who reach the age where heart problems can arise and become a health concern.

 - Rational observation leads one to be unable to deny the undeniable:  the toxic burden now being carried by the Earth’s atmosphere, living matter, animals and humans, has taken us all to the brink of apocalypse.

Yet, in spite of evidential states of dramatic damage to the fabric of life on Earth, radiantly beautiful children are birthing on this planet every day, as if in defiant declarations of the power of life over death.

These children are arriving even as nuclear reactors leak, catch fire and melt down, depositing their deadly radioactive isotopes around the planet. Even as a persistent drum beat ‘for war’ reverberates  across continents and seas. Even as mind numbed and micro-chipped robotic humans blunder blindly onwards towards their slavish epiphany.  Even as the skies are torn apart by streams of aluminium sulphate nanoparticles, and depleted uranium continues its mission as a weapon of mass destruction, to rip the very heart out of the warm corpuscles of life.

 - Meteoropathy symptoms usually occur 24-48 hours before the weather changes.

The physical symptoms of meteoropathy are migraines, headaches, dizziness, nausea, fainting, pains in the field of old injuries, rheumatic pains, and muscle aches. Some of the mental symptoms are fatigue, irritability, mood swings, apathy, lethargy, decreased concentration, coordination and thinking, and sleep disturbances.

People that have “sensitive” heart might experience an increase in blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, rapid heartbeat, and chest discomfort. During this period, is a higher incidence of strokes and heart attacks due to ischemia of the brain and heart in heart patients, the smokers and elderly.

Meteoropathy also causes a higher incidence of asthma attacks and inflammation of the lungs, bronchi, and pleura in patients suffering from diseases of the lungs and bronchi, and a higher incidence of gall and kidney attack, especially early in the morning and at night.

People with abdominal issues, experience stomach pain and aggravation of gastritis due to a gastric ulcer or duodenal ulcer.

 - Few in the general public have heard much, if anything at all, about the relatively obscure corner of academia known as bioethics. First emerging as an academic discipline in the late 1960s, bioethics concerns itself with the ethical questions raised by advancing knowledge and technological sophistication in biology, medicine, and the life sciences.

When the discussions of the bioethics community eventually filter down to the level of popular discourse, they often seem like bizarre, science fiction-like scenarios about improbable possibilities. As unlikely or ivory towerish as these scenarios might appear at first blush, there can be no dispute that the technologies for many of these seemingly outrageous scenarios are increasingly within our grasp.

What many fail to appreciate, however, are the dangers inherent in entrusting some of the most important discussions about the life, death and health of humanity in the hands of a priestly academic class toiling in relative obscurity to produce position papers for government advisory boards.

karimic-tools-144 - 3/12 ~ Mercury (communication & expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits & reality): This energy is better for deep thinking & personal processing rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy and communications with others may be a little more challenging than usual...

 - 3/17 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility): With this energy, it is best to understand that you may have two distinct pulls within – obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS...

 - 3/18 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Venus (values, priorities & resources): This energy encourages you to see the Divine Order or the unifying theme running through the events of your life ~ good, bad & indifferent as well as past, present & future. This is an initiation of new values around communication, self-expression and the value of your ideas...

 - Late last summer, Texas teacher Brandy Young made internet waves when she sent a note about homework to the parents of her students.

Instead of the normal spend-30-minutes-a-day-on-homework command that parents normally hear, Mrs. Young’s note informed them that she would not be giving homework at all. Instead, she asked families to spend more time reading, eating dinner, and playing outside, all factors which research has found to contribute to greater student success.

But Mrs. Young was not the only educator to get on the no homework bandwagon. An entire elementary school in Vermont did the same. And according to The Washington Post, that decision seems to be turning out just fine for the students, parents, and teachers of Orchard School:

 - 1. They have a strong sense of identity - They know who they are, which means they also know – specifically – what they do and do not want in a partner, what works and what doesn’t. While this is fantastic in terms of being able to choose wisely, it ultimately diminishes their pool of prospects pretty significantly.

- 2. Left unchecked, their hyper-intuitiveness can wreck relationships - Often prone to overthinking because of how deeply sensitive they are, their capacity to worry and make assumptions can break relationships that don’t have a perfectly strong foundation.

 - 3. Many are in the throes of twin flame relationships - They’re attached or are with people who are not their “forever” people, rather, intense connections they’re meant to learn, and rapidly expand, from.
