Healing Power of Onions: Can Onions absorb Bacteria, Viruses and Flu?
"Onion Sock - Detox with Onions - Prevent flu with Onions
"This is not a new idea. Onions were used by certain individuals in Europe to successfully fight off the plague in the early 1900’s. Ayurvedic medicine has been using an onion poultice for the chest or feet to cure coughs, fevers and flus for centuries. They also use the onion poultice to reduce pain and inflammation in the joints. Homeopathic doctors also use the healing power of onions to heal from viruses and illness. I even know people in the North American Hutterite community, a pacifist community similar to the Amish whose traditions date back to the 16th century, who tell me it is common practice to place onions in their homes during winter flu season and to use cut onions in the room of an ill person to relieve their symptoms quickly and naturally."

Why are the crucial questions about Hurricane Harvey not being asked?
"To talk about climate breakdown (which in my view is a better term than the curiously bland labels we attach to this crisis) is to question not only Trump, not only current environmental policy, not only current economic policy – but the entire political and economic system.
"It is to expose a programme that relies on robbing the future to fuel the present, that demands perpetual growth on a finite planet. It is to challenge the very basis of capitalism; to inform us that our lives are dominated by a system that cannot be sustained – a system that is destined, if it is not replaced, to destroy everything."

This caring world is the world of Ram.
The world is composed of the self (sva-jiva) who lives in the ecosystem of others (para-jiva). #Hanuman By @devduttmyth 1/n

For animals, monkeys included, the other is either predator, or prey, rival or mate. 2/n

But humans have the ability to outgrow these hardwired animal instincts. 3/n

The ‘north’ in the Ramayana is the highest potential that we can realise, 4/n

...where the self is not consumed by its own hunger for, and fear of, the other, but by empathy for other people’s hungers and fears. 5/n

This caring world is the world of Ram. n/n

Where does ocean plastic come from?
"a mere 9 percent of all plastic produced since the 1950s has been recycled."

Comes from:
1: Our garbage
"Of the 480 billion plastic beverage bottles sold in 2016 alone, less than half were collected for recycling, and of that only 7 percent was turned into new plastic."
2: Down the drain
ex: "synthetic fabrics release miniscule plastic fibers with every wash into the water supply."
3: Industrial leakage
nurdles: "pre-production plastic pellet used in manufacturing and packaging ... 5-mm long ... Once spilled, nurdles are impossible to clean up."

Who owns my data?
"the concept of ownership has undergone a fundamental shift in the digital world. ... Unfortunately, what has happened is the entities in the value chain have assumed full ownership of this data, while the 'real owner' does not seem to have any right on the same. The privacy policies of many such entities (typically the device manufacturers or portals on the internet) shift the balance in favour of these entities to such an extent that the owners’ rights on the data are extinguished completely."

John Lanchester reviews ‘The Attention Merchants’ by Tim Wu, ‘Chaos Monkeys’ by Antonio García Martínez and ‘Move Fast and Break Things’ by Jonathan Taplin · LRB 17 August 2017
Review of Tim Wu new book _The Attention Merchants_, with much information about the topic.

"'The Kirkland dormitory facebook is open on my desktop and some of these people have pretty horrendous facebook pics. I almost want to put some of these faces next to pictures of some farm animals and have people vote on which is the more attractive … Let the hacking begin.'"
Mark Zuckerberg, playing with the early version of Facebook.

"even more than it is in the advertising business, Facebook is in the surveillance business. Facebook, in fact, is the biggest surveillance-based enterprise in the history of mankind. It knows far, far more about you than the most intrusive government has ever known about its citizens. ... What Facebook does is watch you, and then use what it knows about you and your behaviour to sell ads. I’m not sure there has ever been a more complete disconnect between what a company says it does – ‘connect’, ‘build communities’ – and the commercial reality. Note that the company’s knowledge about its users isn’t used merely to target ads but to shape the flow of news to them. ... Your eyes are directed towards the place where they are most valuable for Facebook."

"The company’s ambition, its ruthlessness, and its lack of a moral compass scare me. It goes back to that moment of its creation, Zuckerberg at his keyboard after a few drinks creating a website to compare people’s appearance, not for any real reason other than that he was able to do it. That’s the crucial thing about Facebook, the main thing which isn’t understood about its motivation: it does things because it can."

"Automation and artificial intelligence are going to have a big impact in all kinds of worlds. These technologies are new and real and they are coming soon. Facebook is deeply interested in these trends. We don’t know where this is going, we don’t know what the social costs and consequences will be, ..."

Your online identity is precious. Here’s how to protect it
"We should all be guarding our information with the feverish paranoia of a top-ranking politician with a whole family of skeletons in the closet. Because no matter who you are, there are people who’d benefit from stealing your identity, and right now they know a lot more about it than you do.
"Admittedly, some of the holes in online information security are absolutely not your fault. Surprising numbers of household-name companies use poor or even actively unhelpful security protocols. But this is zero comfort when you’ve been hijacked, so while it’s not always your fault, it’s still your responsibility to protect yourself. Fiercely."

"The beauty of pi, in part, is that it puts infinity within reach. Even young children get this. The digits of pi never end and never show a pattern. They go on forever, seemingly at random—except that they can’t possibly be random, because they embody the order inherent in a perfect circle. This tension between order and randomness is one of the most tantalizing aspects of pi.

Did you know war is illegal? The Kellogg-Briand Pact
" ... there already is a law against war. Really. And it’s still on the books. It’s called the Kellogg-Briand Pact, signed in Paris on August 27, 1928, on which the U.S. Senate voted 85 to 1 in favor of ratifying ... .
"... The pact made aggressive war a crime. ...
"Eighty-nine years ago tomorrow, 13 other nations signed the pact. Two days later President Coolidge signed the treaty into law. After 47 more nations signed on, the illegality of war became an almost universally supported law and became the basis for the crime against peace."

"As Lincoln saw it, the Constitution of the United States is not a stand-alone document but is meant to be read through the eyes of the Declaration of Independence. (See http://www.mrlincolnandthefounders.org/commentary.) What is government except an organization for securing our rights, that is, keeping our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness safe? The government does this by writing laws and enforcing them. What is law but the line drawn to keep us from infringing on other people’s rights and they from infringing on ours?"

"How can we obey the law against war? First, to acknowledge the law and speak out against war. Second, to recognize that our real enemy is ignorance. The antidotes to ignorance have always been consciousness and education."

Is Buddhism a religion?
"Is it a religion, psychology, or way of life? The “religion without God” has baffled Western thinkers for hundreds of years. Our three experts, Charles Prebish ('Yes'), Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche ('No'), and Joan Sutherland ('Kind of'), join the debate."

Difference is on how you define "religion":

Charles Prebish
yes. "“Religion is a means to ultimate transformation.”

Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
no. The difference is in the investigation — as opposed to the faith — that you bring to it.

Joan Sutherland
"If there’s a sacred text in Buddhism, it is the world itself. Your attachment to that text can be as religious as you like — but resultant awakening may shake your faith."

Really Simple CAPTCHA | Contact Form 7
how-to on the CF7 website

Contact Form 7 | contactform7.com | 17 sep 2015

....................................
The author recommends using the included google reCaptcha, but i respectfully disagree. That one is from evilGoogle, has privacy/security issues, requires an account/API key, and is way overkill for most of us. I'm sure glad author is making and maintaining this nice simple captcha.
