Part Greek chorus, part Doris Humphrey movement choir, part tongue in cheek, part cynical take on the notion of "green"...a ritual, a quirky, silent response to climate change. Maybe it could happen anywhere, at places where consciousness was being raised or needed raising around humanity's relationship with the Earth, and specific places on the Earth. - Ann Carlson on Green Movement Green Movement was commissioned by Wesleyan University's Center for the Arts and Environmental Studies Program for the Feet to the Fire Festival 2008, as part of Feet to the Fire: Exploring Global Climate Change from Science to Art.

This piece is a great way to recall the vicious callous disregard Bush has for soldiers and human beings, demonstrates well the cynical disrespect Bush, as well as the laugh-along DC elite, have for those who have died or been maimed as a direct result of his/their illegal war.

PANTS ON THE GROUND LYRICS http://funfactsandinfo.blogspot.com PANTS ON THE GROUND LYRICS Would-be "American Idol" contestant turned Internet sensation "General" Larry Platt performed his hit song "Pants on the Ground" on "The View" Monday morning. "Wow, that was so amazing," said co-host Sherri Shepard, as Platt, a 63-year-old civil rights activist from Atlanta, warbled the tune made famous when he sampled a bit of it for "Idol" judges, including the sharp-tongued cynic Simon Cowell, while auditioning for the show."Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground," Platt crooned.When he finished the number, the "General" busted out some signature dynamic dance moves, including splits, push-ups and sit-ups for the cheering audience at the ABC chatfest. In the house was Platt's nephew. He expressed pride for his uncle and said he was an inspiration. sked by Shepard about the song's inspiration, Platt explained that he "was walking one day, and [saw] a guy with a baby bottle in his mouth, and he had his pants on the ground. And that's what gave me the inspiration." You know, I have a horrible feeling that song could be a hit," Cowell said about the song when he heard it on "Idol." He was right. Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has become a "Pants" follower. "The View" showed a clip of Favre and his teammates chanting "Pants on the Ground" after beating the Dallas Cowboys into the ground with a 34 to 3 victory on Sunday. Meanwhile, usatoday.com reports that Marshall Manning, another would-be "Idol" who didn't make the cut, has done a silky rap-happy riff on "Pants on the Ground." It's called "Pants Up." http://funfactsandinfo.blogspot.com

SUBWAY CHICKEN VIDEO "NEW" http://funfactsandinfo.blogspot.com SUBWAY CHICKEN VIDEO "NEW" I have seen many unexpected things on the subway, including but not limited to people defecating, masturbating, tumbling, dancing, carrying Ikea bookcases, openly weeping, playing mariachi music, applying nail polish, and explaining horribly inaccurate physiology to one another (“of course you can get pregnant from that; your insides are all connected to each other”). But a man rolling on the floor of the train while hugging and caressing a live chicken? That’s a new one even for me.PopWatchers, I am so cynical I wondered briefly if maybe Subway had something to do with this, so when we all frantically googled “subway chicken” we’d learn all about a tasty sandwich or something.Anyway, beyond “gee, I hope this guy and that chicken get the kind of help they need,” what are your thoughts on The Subway Chicken? http://funfactsandinfo.blogspot.com

Christianity and the Birth of Science by Michael Bumbulis, Ph.D Excerpt: The founders of modern science were all bunched into a particular geographical location dominated by a Judeo-Christian world view. I'm thinking of men like Louis Aggasiz (founder of glacial science and perhaps paleontology); Charles Babbage (often said to be the creator of the computer); Francis Bacon (father of the scientific method); Sir Charles Bell (first to extensively map the brain and nervous system); Robert Boyle (father of modern chemistry); Georges Cuvier (founder of comparative anatomy and perhaps paleontology); John Dalton (father of modern atomic theory); Jean Henri Fabre (chief founder of modern entomology); John Ambrose Fleming (some call him the founder of modern electronics/inventor of the diode); James Joule (discoverer of the first law of thermodynamics); William Thomson Kelvin (perhaps the first to clearly state the second law of thermodynamics); Johannes Kepler (discoverer of the laws of planetary motion); Carolus Linnaeus (father of modern taxonomy); James Clerk Maxwell (formulator of the electromagnetic theory of light); Gregor Mendel (father of genetics); Isaac Newton (discoverer of the universal laws of gravitation); Blaise Pascal (major contributor to probability studies and hydrostatics); Louis Pasteur (formulator of the germ theory). If an appreciation for math and the cause-and-effect workings of nature were sufficient to generate modern science, how does one explain the historical fact the the founders of modern science were all found in a *particular* culture that just happened to be shaped by a Judeo-Christian world view? Instead of measuring energy in joules, why don't we measure it in platos or al-Asharis? Of course, the cynics would claim these men were not *really* Christians. That is, they really didn't *believe* in Christianity, but they professed such beliefs because they did not want to be persecuted. This is the "closet-atheist" hypothesis. But it doesn't square with the facts. Many of the founders of modern science were also very interested in theology. If you read Pascal, this is obvious. Mendel was a monk. Newton often said his interest in theology surpassed his interest in science. Newton did end his Principles with: "This most beautiful system of sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being...This Being governs all things, not as the soul of the world, but as Lord over all; and on account of his dominion he is wont to be called Lord God." As Charles Hummel notes, "Newton's religion was no mere appendage to his science; he would have been a theist no matter what his profession." Boyle set up Christian apologetics lectures. Babbage and Prout contributed to an apologetics series called the Bridgewater Treatises. Aggasiz, Cuvier, Fleming, Kelvin, and Linnaeus were what we now call 'creationists.' When I speak about Biblical beliefs that paved the way for science, I will use both Kepler and Pasteur to highlight two specific examples. Furthermore, many of these founders of science lived at a time when others publicly expressed views quite contrary to Christianity - Hume, Hobbes, Darwin, etc. When Boyle argues against Hobbe's materialism or Kelvin argues against Darwin's assumptions, you don't have a case of "closet atheists." http://ldolphin.org/bumbulis/ The Return of the God Hypothesis - Stephen Meyer http://www.arn.org/docs/meyer/sm_returnofgod.pdf entire video lecture: http://www.watermarkradio.com/index.php?id=153&channel=237&series=140&message=0 Intelligent Design - The Anthropic Hypothesis http://lettherebelight-77.blogspot.com/

Recent revivals of activism include the G20 demonstrations in 2009, runway invasions at Heathrow airport and climate campers a-plenty. But is activism today really a response to the recession and politics at large or, as critics have argued, merely a militant reflection of mainstream cynicism? This debate filmed at the Battle of Ideas dissects contemporary activism. The expert panel of speakers include author and campaigner Josie Appleton; writer and columnist at The Times, Hugo Rifkind; leader of the UK's Pirate Party Andrew Robinson and Royal College of Art Student Union president, Jack Tan.

(of note: a highly modified "cosmological constant" has now been added to general relativity equations to account for "dark energy") Actually it is not surprising that a foundational discovery into science has a direct "Christian" connection, for, contrary to popular belief, almost every foundational breakthough in science can be traced to a devout christian.

The amount of information is infinite because two real numbers are required in the expansion of the state vector of a two state quantum system (Jozsa 1997, 1) --- Concept 2. is used by Bennett, et al. Recall that they infer that since an infinite amount of information is required to specify a qubit, an infinite amount of information must be transferred to teleport. http://www.cas.umt.edu/phil/faculty/duwell/DuwellPSA2K.pdf The Center Of The Universe Is Life - video http://www.metacafe.com/watch/3993426/the_center_of_the_universe_is_life/ Intelligent Design - The Anthropic Hypothesis http://lettherebelight-77.blogspot.com/
