The Common Ills The death of Amnesty Internation al?
The death of Amnesty International?
Did Amnesty International die today?
And, if so, will anyone miss it?
I don't think so.
Amnesty started to hold people accountable -- governments and groups.
By the 70s, when it was first showing up on most people's radars (a
decade after the organization began) there was a special need for a body
who would call out abusive governments, who would shine a light on
That reputation led many to flock to the organization. Some to help
raise awareness and money -- Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Tracy
Chapman, U2, Sting, etc. Some to try to use the organization -- which
was always up to be used and co-opted -- to improve their own image (see
Nike for one example).
Today, Amnesty International is in the news.
They issued a lengthy press release which opens:
Fresh evidence uncovered by Amnesty International indicates that
members of the armed group calling itself the... (more)
Takdir Illahi zaman hari ini
Kekusutan ummah yang melanda sekarang ini amat membimbangkan kita.
Daripada gejala sosial, dadah, masalah ekonomi, tipu daya politik
hinggalah kepada gejala murtad yang hangat diperkatakan sekarang.
Menambah remuk dan luka kepada kekusutan ini adalah fenomena hiburan
yang melampau di kalangan masyarakat Malaysia pada ketika ini. Semua
iklan mesti menghiburkan, pendidikan mesti menghiburkan, ringtone
handpone juga mesti berlagu hiburan, malah ceramah agama pun mesti ada
unsur unsur hiburan. Kehidupan kita sudah menjadi entertainment
oriented. Apa yang pasti, kekusutan ini menyebabkan ummah sedar dan
ingin kembali kepada ketenangan beragama. Maka tidak hairanlah semakin
ramai yang menghadiri majlis-majlis zikir, ceramah, seminar dan tak
kurang juga yang aktif dalam persatuan-persatuan untuk membuat kerja
kerja dakwah. Malah ada juga yang bertindak lari dari kehidupan
masyarakat yang dianggap sudah rosak.

WELLNESS PARADIGM DOMINATES HEALTH IN NEW EARTH
Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra

May the best of health be
with you in the New Earth!
Ra, messenger &
teacher, from the Darjeeling Council, forthcoming Guardian, will focus on the
subject of health & wellness in this note. This is among my last few
heraldries to proclaim, as my ground tasks will soon end in full gear up for my
forthcoming missions as a guardian.
I already wrote on the
subject of physical mutationâ€”from organic- to crystalline-based bodiesâ€”in
previous articles. Life span will be very long in the New Earth, an indication
of perfected health for everyone else in the ascended planet.
Consequently, health perspective
will shift from the Sickness paradigm of the Old Earth to the Wellness paradigm
long advocated by diverse cultural innovators. The health situation by then
will be entirely different from what we are... (more)
pixiesmagic ...after 4 in the afternoon
I am just about ready for a little break or breather or whatever it may be called when you've overdone it and you just have to crash! Hello dear reader; from one end of the day to the other; I've just finished prep'ing a batch of fresh vegetables, and coincidently my 3rd load (laundry) today. Don't ask me where it all comes from; I just don't know! Whatever or where ever it comes from; it has been routed and handled. I almost ran out of space to hang stuff but with a couple of make-shift changes with the airers that already decorate certain spaces; I managed to get it all placed out in such a way as to ensure eventual drying. I can't be held responsible for the amount of moisture in the air at the moment so I could not say how long it might take to get it really dry; dry enough to wear. For the last few weeks; we have had continuous dives down into the bad weather bin. I thought today that we might get some bright weather but sadly, it was gone; any brightness had gone off... (more)
