‘Last Lecture’ academic dies

Randy Pausch, the university professor who created a "last lecture" celebrating life in the face of terminal cancer, has died aged 47. The lecture entitled ‘Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams' became a best-selling book (see Amazon books at the bottom of this page). The video of the ...

Freakonomics

The book is not new. But certainly worth a review. ‘Freakonomics', written by ‘the two Stevens', i.e. Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, is indeed a freakish book. Some of their conclusions may still be wrong, but too near the truth for comfort anyway. For instance, they conclude that the ...

Caribia in the New Age

Perhaps the Mayans did get it right by intimating that the shift to the New Age will not take place until 2012. That would coincide with the US presidency following the one we are expecting shortly. If that is so, then the ‘signs' we see now are just precursors. However, we believe the shift has ...

Jamaica’s Crime & Failing Capitalism and Socialism

Jamaica's poor have been left to the mercy of violent criminal gangs, Amnesty International says in a new report.  The human rights group said inner-city Jamaicans were being "held hostage" in the battle between gangs and the state. Amnesty said Jamaican authorities had stigmatized and "wilfully ...

Not a burden, but a chance!

Apology to our readers in Saba and Statia
Maybe we should include more stories in English to better inform Sabans and Statians. And we will in future. In this special edition, however, we choose to convey our message mainly in Dutch for the simple reason that it is of the utmost importance that our ...

Bizarre 17th Century-style Terrorism

By: Caritas Puella
Is it starting up again?  Is it a plane, a weather balloon, or a UFO?  Who knows!, but an amazing sighting took place the day after Christmas 2007 in the skies above Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Home videos posted on the Internet attest to something sensational “stalking” the ...

Boycott Yahoo!

We return once more to Yahoo’s double standard. On the one hand Yahoo wants the net to be 1) private (which in fact it is not; it is the public internet; everything you post or write – also e-mails - leaves a trace and is public) and 2) to be a worldwide forum for free speech. But then, Yahoo (and ...

‘Canada has said it will build two military facilities in the far north in a bid to assert its sovereignty over the contested Arctic region’, the BBC Internet recently reported. Prime Minister Stephen Harper made the announcement during a tour of Canada's northern territories. It comes as a Danish ...

Free Tibet

‘A group of Tibetans were arrested in western China after public calls for the return of Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama’, the BBC Internet reports on 3 August 2007. ‘The incident took place on 1 August at a festival in Litang town in western Sichuan’, Radio Free Asia and the ...

Cat Predicts Patient deaths

You’d better get rid of the cat. For if the patients start believing that the cat can predict their death, the suggestion would indeed kill them. This is how Voodoo magic works. First you create a belief, then you use the belief in a suggestion, and - lo and behold! - the magic works! For example, ...

The Race for the People

It’s not the ‘Race for the Presidency’! It’s the race for the people. We see and hear 8 Democrat candidates vying for the presidency. They are all trying to sell themselves on the President Market. Stop it! We need facts. Basically, they are all the same, except for one: Kucinich. He wants peace. ...

The net is steadily brainwashing us

The internet has achieved in material form what mystics have known for ages, i.e. that we are all interconnected in the collective mind. The internet does not change this fact, but it gives people a more visible idea about what it means to be interconnected.

Whereas before the information age only ...
