DARPA's Enhancement of Warfighters: Programmable Matter

www.defenselink.mil - DARPA's Programmable Matter Enhancement of Warfighter
Moviegoers were captivated as they watched a metallic assassin morph before their eyes in "Terminator 2." The villain turned to liquid before assuming new forms capable of squeezing through narrow openings and transforming its arms into bladed weapons and solid metal tools.
Scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency were wowed too. Now they're working to deliver that same kind of technology to support the good guys: warfighters on the battlefield.
Mitchell R. Zakin, program manager for DARPA's Programmable Matter division, said he's convinced the concept depicted for decades in blockbuster movies and comic books has real-life applications.
He's leading up the effort to develop "programma matter," which he calls "the ultimate adaptable material." It will be capable of changing size and shape and taking on new properties for one use, he explained, then adapting to a whole different form for another use.
Zakin clarified that he's not out to change warfighters themselves, just the equipment they use, the clothing they wear and the loads they carry.
"Warfighters carry an incredible amount of stuff and they don't have any more room to carry more," he said. "Yet they are facing much more complicated battle spaces. They're going into caves and working in cities. They need more sophisticated tools to deal with these environments, yet they can't carry them."

Tell USDA: Keep Nanotech OUT of Organic!

http://truefoodnow.org/2009/10/16/usda-considers-a-ban-on-nanotech-in-organic/
truefoodnow.org - The Center for Food Safety
USDA’s National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) is voting on whether nanotechnology should be banned from use in Organic products. Thanks to your overwhelming outcry in May 2009 the Board’s initial recommendation is to keep nanotech out of organic entirely. Now, we need your help again to make sure USDA holds the line! The critical vote on the Board’s final recommendation will be held in Washington D.C. on Nov 3.
Nanotechnology is contrary to Organic Principles and could further entrench industrial/chemical agriculture and industrial food as our dominant paradigm, to the detriment of public health and the environment. Tell NOSB to ensure the integrity of Organic on this issue by voting that USDA ban nanotechnology as an excluded method.

"A World Government Will Be Created"

· UN Climate Change Treaty to be signed in Copenhagen December 2009.
· Is Obama poised to cede US sovereignty?

Lord Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth" from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering 9 serious errors in the film to be corrected. Lord Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educating the public about the myth of global warming.



On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton, a noted climate change skeptic, gave a presentation at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. In this 4 minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty[below], scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.

Planet-X On Italian TV News

First Contact In Florida?

Bill Ryan's opening at the Zurich conference July 12th, 2009. This is an extract from his video presentation. In this video, he is reminded by David Wilcock to talk about something likely to happen on November 27th, 2009. According to Pete Peterson, the television time has already been booked for U.S president Obama to tell the world about contact with six different 'friendly' ET races. In the second part he talks about an abductee he had the opportunity to talk to, who said had a very powerful revelation about ET contact, that probably may happen on November 21st or 22nd, 2009.

Xarxa ECO - De la Competència a la Cooperació

http://xarxaeco.org/
xarxaeco.org - Xarxa ECO
La economía actual se fundamenta en la competencia
como principal valor.

El objetivo de Xarxa ECO es que los participantes construyan
confianza mútua y colaboren para construir alternativas económicas
que beneficien a la comunidad.


Xarxa ECO es una red colaborativa con base en Tarragona.
El objetivo es desarrollar una alternativa sostenible a la economía competitiva y especulativa actual, basada en el valor que cada uno aporta para el desarrollo de la comunidad.

Moneda social
El economista Bernard Lietaer -experto en sistemas monetarios, arquitecto del Euro y promotor de los sistemas de moneda social- asegura que si queremos un dinero diseñado para atender las necesidades de las personas y fomentar ciclos productivos más respetuosos con el medioambiente, tenemos que crearlo.
xarxaeco.org - ECO, moneda social
Impacto real
Desde 2003 en Alemania, el profesor de economía Christian Gelleri y sus alumnos desarrollaron la moneda sin interés Chiemgauer con el objetivo de compensar la desigualdad en la distribución de la riqueza. La región bávara donde funciona se beneficia porque esta moneda circula 18 veces al año, tres veces más que el Euro, permitiendo a 600 empresas sostener el empleo y dar compensaciones extra en Chiemgauer a los trabajadores, en plena crisis.

Microsubvenciones
[Hace falta la implementación con carácter obligatorio -ahora es una 'recomendación'- de Basilea II, para que esta parte sea posible.]
En un mundo crecientemente tecnificado las oportunidades laborales son escasas. Xarxa ECO ofrece subvenciones al autoempleo y a la creación de trabajos que aporten valor humano, formación, reinserción y cursos, especialmente los vinculados a temas sociales, culturales y medioambientales. Las personas y organizaciones que promuevan tales proyectos pueden optar a subvenciones para facilitar que el dinero no sea una barrera para el acceso a estas oportunidades.
