Portugal's drug decriminalization 'bizarrely underappreciated'

Champions of harsh drug criminalization laws as the best solution to curbing drug use will be chagrined to find that Portugal’s eight year history of decriminalization has led to lower drug usage rates.

According to a new report entitled, ''Drug Decriminalization in Portugal: Lessons for Creating Fair and Successful Drug Policies'', while drug use across the European Union has risen steadily since 2000, Portugal, which has the most liberal drug laws of any country, has actually seen its prevalence rates decrease in various age groups since it decriminalized all drugs in 2001. Prevalence rates measure how many people have consumed drugs over the course of their lifetime.

“I think it’s bizarrely underappreciated what’s been done in Portugal,” said Salon writer Glenn Greenwald, who authored the report. Greenwald, who speaks fluent Portuguese, traveled to Portugal in 2008 to study the affects of drug decriminalization in the country.

More CO2 stimulates wetlands

"The team conducted their study for two years (2006 – 2007), during which they focused on the role that organic matter, both growing and decaying, plays on soil elevation in wetlands and the effect CO2 has on this process. Coastal wetlands must build upward through the accumulation of mineral and organic matter to maintain a constant elevation relative to water levels; otherwise, they will drown and disappear. ... "Our findings show that elevated CO2 stimulates plant productivity, particularly below ground, thereby boosting marsh surface elevation," said Adam Langley, the paper's lead author. Patrick Megonigal, the paper's corresponding author, added "We found that by stimulating root growth, thus raising a marsh's soil elevation, elevated CO2 may also increase the capacity for coastal wetlands to tolerate relative rises in sea level." Both scientists are ecologists at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, Md. ...


To examine how CO2 may interact with other factors that will accompany sea-level rise, the authors also manipulated CO2, salinity and flooding in a companion greenhouse study. ... "Elevated CO2 doubled the short-term rate of elevation gain in our marsh."

Obama’s Blackwater? Chicago Mercenary Firm Gets Millions for Private “Security” in Israel and Iraq

http://www.chelseapiers.com/sportmgr/images/teamlogos/sm_ACF2EB.JPGTriple Canopy -- Secure Success (TM)

Federal records obtained by AlterNet reveal a multi-million dollar contract for a private U.S. paramilitary force operating out of Jerusalem.

On the campaign trail, Barack Obama’s advisers said he “can’t rule out [and] won’t rule out” using mercenary forces, like Blackwater. Now, it appears that the Obama administration has decided on its hired guns of choice: Triple Canopy, a Chicago company now based in Virginia. It may not have Blackwater’s thuggish reputation, but Triple Canopy has its own bloody history in Iraq and a record of hiring mercenaries from countries with atrocious human rights records. What’s more, Obama is not just using the company in Iraq, but also as a U.S.-government funded private security force in Israel/Palestine, operating out of Jerusalem.

Whistleblower testimony: An electrical engineer on 2012-2013

http://projectcamelot.org/electrical_engineer.html

http://www.feandft.com/magfield2.gif
6 April 2009
We[projectcamelot.org] have been contacted by the wife of an electrical engineer who has been officially briefed about a serious major threat to infrastructure in a few years' time.

We
[projectcamelot.org] believe this information is credible and important but the contact may now have been lost. Therefore we are publishing what we have - with many questions unanswered.
This is the first message we
[projectcamelot.org] received:
·27 March

Hello Bill & Kerry
,
My husband is an electrical engineer for a national power company. He has just been told that they are expecting an event in the next 3-4 years[???] that will render every transformer in the world useless. They are desperately trying to find a solution to the problem. If they don't, the entire global electrical system will go down[!!!!!]. I know this fits in with some of your research. Have you
[projectcamelot.org] heard about this?

[But, yet another electricity related news piece; however, in this one there's.....spionage!]
Electricity grid in U.S. penetrated by spies.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123914805204099085.html

WASHINGTON -- Cyberspies have penetrated the U.S. electrical grid and left behind software programs that could be used to disrupt the system, according to current and former national-security officials.

The spies came from China, Russia and other countries, these officials said, and were believed to be on a mission to navigate the U.S. electrical system and its controls. The intruders haven't sought to damage the power grid or other key infrastructure, but officials warned they could try during a crisis or war.

"The Chinese have attempted to map our infrastructure, such as the electrical grid," said a senior intelligence official. "So have the Russians."

The espionage appeared pervasive across the U.S. and doesn't target a particular company or region, said a former Department of Homeland Security official. "There are intrusions, and they are growing," the former official said, referring to electrical systems. "There were a lot last year."

A new path for Europe[a.k.a. the Globalist 'Staged' Manifesto]

·Society led by markets and profits has failed [...this is how they appeal to you]. We[the globalists] are offering an alternative for the democratic left. [...be very careful reading this!]

The economic wreckage of market failure is spreading across Europe. The G-20 summit has begun a global effort to repair the system, but there must be no going back to business as usual. Neoliberal capitalism is destructive and unsustainable - we must create a new economy that is secure, green[hum, this sounds fishy already...] and fair. To this end, we are launching our declaration for a social Europe: Building the Good Society: The Project of the Democratic Left.

Ten years ago, Tony Blair[bilderberger, CFR, trilateral, 33º freemason,...] and Gerhard Schröder[bilderberger, CFR, trilateral, 33º freemason,...], the then German chancellor, published their declaration for a European Third Way. Social democrats were in government in almost all the EU countries. Economies were booming, and neoliberal capitalism was uncritically embraced. Today, social democrats are out of government almost everywhere and the neoliberal model is in crisis. The era of the Third Way is over, and class inequality remains the defining structure of society[...and they love it!].

Associated Press declara la guerra al pillaje de noticias en internet

·La agencia combatirá el uso sin permiso de sus contenidos por parte de webs y blogs[...oh! no!]

Una vez que se ha llenado la mesa de comida gratis es difícil pedirle al comensal que pague, y encima por un menú reducido. Esa es la realidad a la que se enfrentan varias industrias[ay! qué cruda realidad], incluida la de los medios de comunicación tradicionales. Sumidos en una crisis nacida en gran parte por la fuga de publicidad, periódicos y agencias de noticias apuntan a internet como una de las causas de la radical transformación de su relación con el público. Y ahora, uno de los gigantes de la industria, Associated Press (AP), ha decidido declarar la guerra alegando apropiación indebida de sus contenidos.
La agencia, principal proveedora de noticias del mundo, intenta frenar el uso de sus teletipos en buscadores como Google y Yahoo, portales de noticias, blogs[!] y otras páginas web. Quiere que todos aquellos que cuelguen sus informaciones obtengan antes el permiso para hacerlo y, tan importante o más, que compartan los beneficios[que perros...si además redirigimos tráfico en su dirección...les damos publicidad gratis!]. Y AP piensa desarrollar un sistema para seguir la pista a sus artículos, ver dónde se cuelgan y determinar si su uso viola los derechos de autor [#&@!!!].

Alberto Fujimori, quien durante diez años (1990-2000) fue dueño y señor de Perú, es probable que pase el resto de su vida entre rejas. En un fallo histórico, un tribunal lo condenó a 25 años de cárcel (la fiscalía pedía 30 años) tras declararlo culpable de ser el autor intelectual de la muerte de 25 personas en dos masacres perpetradas durante su presidencia por un escuadrón del ejército. La sentencia pone fin simbólico a uno de los períodos más tenebrosos de Perú.

La justicia peruana condena a Fujimori a 25 años de cárcel.
·El tribunal carga al expresidente la muerte de 24 adultos y un niño, de 8 años.
·Las matanzas de La Cantuta y Barrios Altos son crímenes 'contra la humanidad'.
http://www.elperiodico.com/default.asp?idpublicacio_PK=46&idioma=CAS&idnoticia_PK=602080&idseccio_PK=1007
Alberto Fujimori, presidente de Perú (1990-2000) que quiso permanecer eternamente en el cargo, fue condenado ayer a 25 años de prisión por homicidio calificado y por la muerte de 25 personas. El tribunal consideró que las matanzas de La Cantuta y Barrios Altos, perpetradas por un escuadrón de la muerte autorizado por el político cuando estaba en el poder fueron "crímenes contra la humanidad". La sentencia, calificada de histórica, es la primera que condena a un presidente elegido en las urnas en Latinoamérica. Después de 484 días de un proceso intachable, el Chino también fue encontrado culpable de los secuestros del periodista Gustavo Gorriti y del empresario Samuel Dyer. "Los cuatro cargos se encuentran probados más allá de toda duda", dijo el juez César San Martín, presidente de la Sala Especial de la Corte Suprema.
"Esto ha sido una venganza", aseguró Keiko Fujimori, su hija y heredera, al salir del tribunal. Los fujimoristas juraron vengar a su líder.
