“Your Body Is An Illusion” This Video Will Literally Blow Your Mind! – By Dr. Bruce Lipton

Dr. Bruce Lipton : “Your Body Is An Illusion” This Video Will Literally Blow Your Mind!

It was once thought that genes could turn themselves on and off, and in the process, they could control the character of our lives. This belief led to the conclusion that our fate was controlled by the genome we acquired from our mother and father at the moment of conception.

Unfortunately, if we do not like the traits we inherited, we cannot change our genes. When we combine these facts with the notion that genes control their own activity, we are left with the inescapable conclusion that we are “victims” of our heredity and should anticipate expressing the diseases and negative traits passed down through our family lineage.          Continue reading

Mercator Misconceptions: Clever Map Shows the True Size of Countries

Maps are hugely important tools in our everyday life, whether it’s guiding our journeys from point A to B, or shaping our big picture perceptions about geopolitics and the environment.

For many people, the Earth as they know it is heavily informed by the Mercator projection – a tool used for nautical navigation that eventually became the world’s most widely recognized map.

USA: Trump’s Version of the Iran Accord: Heads I Win, Tails You Lose

Trump’s Iran policy is more reminiscent of a coin flip than a political decision

  Prabir Purkayastha | Globetrotter

This article was produced in partnership by Newsclick and Globetrotter, a project of the Independent Media Institute.

Trump’s Iran policy is akin to that of a schoolyard bully. More worrying is the passivity of the rest of the world and the dangerous drift to another devastating war in the region.

The U.S., after walking out of the Iran accord, is now shouting foul as Iran has breached the 300 kg enriched-uranium stockpile limit of the accord. Does the U.S. expect Iran to be bound by the accord while it happily reneges on it? Or is its concept of international accords the playground bully’s version ……. of a coin toss, “Heads I Win, Tails You Lose”?      Continue reading

USA: Why Trump Caved to China and Huawei – By Vijay Prashad | Globetrotter

– By Vijay Prashad | Globetrotter

Everything about the trade war between the United States and China is bewildering. The world’s two largest economies entered a titanic struggle with harsh words and high tariffs, sending shudders through the global economy. Hundreds of billions of dollars worth of goods on either side stood before tariff walls that seemed unbreachable. Truces would come out of nowhere – as at the 2018 Group of Twenty summit in Buenos Aires – but then they would be set aside by US President Donald Trump in a stream of tweets at odd hours.

In May, Trump went after Huawei, one of the world’s largest technology firms. The attack this time was not on economic grounds. Trump accused Huawei of being an espionage arm of the Chinese government. Companies in the United States that supplied Huawei with software and chips would no longer be permitted to do so.            Continue reading

NYC: Richmond Hill High Excels in 2019 Robotic Competition- By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

NYC: Richmond Hill High School Excels in 2019 Robotic Competition

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Its Principal is Neil Ganesh, a distinguished educator, whose parents hail from Guyana.

There is little doubt that robotics is the wave of the future. There is general agreement that millions of robots will be built in the next few years to boost production in industries. They have already been deployed in a variety of places, from electronic plants, to supermarkets and hospitals, and with astounding results. It is the view of many in the field that robotics will change the face of manufacturing and distribution and will rise to the challenge of providing labor cheaply.
