Bravo Turlock, a positive attempt to cope with global warming. Curiously missing from the story is any mention of University of California, Merced. But, speak Memory: the first chancellor of that institution, known locally as the Cowgirl Chancellor for her blue-and-gold cowgirl boots, never failed to correct herself and others 20 years ago, imperially insisting that global warming was to be called "climate change" and "climate change" only. UC Merced probably doesn't want to be associated with any project that admits global warming exists.
Ordinarily, we wouldn't post an article this old about a major player in a war, but because there is no sense of history or context in what most of our media is telling us, or else another concealed historical motive is the guide, this well researched and written article is as timely as ever, perhaps more timely. -- bl

By Robert Glennon, University of Arizona
Journalists reporting on the status and future of the Colorado River are increasingly using the phrase “dead pool.” It sounds ominous. And it is.
The Mossad attributes Israel’s economic miracle in creating an equivalent of Silicon Valley to a base of a million Russian immigrants. This Israeli Silicon Valley happens to be a key asset of the American MICIMATT (military-industrial-congressional-intelligence-media-academia-think tank complex), as indelibly named by Ray McGovern. -- Escobar, May 6, 2022, Strategic Culture Foundation

Is "Democracy in the Workplace" Having a Moment?
Predatory industries — making millions by helping billionaires squeeze pennies out of working class people — are a tragic indicator of our having reached what I call “the cancer stage of capitalism”
A customer who handles the Amish farmer’s website and other modern communications concurred with him, saying:
“The USDA processing plants require the meat to be treated with a chemical cocktail of citric acid, lactic acid and peracetic acid. The peracetic acid is toxic, and the citric and lactic [acids] are GMO.”
Anke, another customer of Miller, pointed out that the lactic acid used to preserve meat is not a natural version.
Germany, in this humble opinion, is the one to watch as the war continues. Why? Because Germans cannot afford to remain unconscious about consequences. Even though most of that heavy military equipment, if it works at all, will probably be peddled off to other theaters of war by the incredibly corrupt Ukraine regime, this decision doesn’t look good and Germans know it. Not only is this war affecting its energy supplies, it is threatening German lives.
We've been so grateful to great Brazilian, Pepe Escobar, one of the last genuine foreign correspondents in the world, for his coverage of the Far East and Eurasia, which we first saw in TomDispatch.com around 2010. Since then we've been taking the Escobar series of courses on such complex topics as Pipelineistan (oil-distribution networks in Central Asia) all the way to his newest subject, NATOstan, a contemporary comedy of stupidity and violence.
