The future - is engineered?

Consider the strange possibility that we have been deliberately taught to be irresponsible and to dislike each other for some good purpose.
the industrial titans of the 1890's began to think that not only could the production line be engineered, but people's lives could be engineered as well, in order to work like homogeneous robots with the machines. Rockefeller and Carnegie gave huge sums to prominent academics to see if this could be realized through the educational system. They found that to a considerable extent it could, and it is still being done today as evidenced in the Congressional Record during the Clinton administration.
On Sept. 25, 1998, Rep. Bob Schaffer placed in the Congressional Record an 18-page letter that has become famous as Marc Tucker's "Dear Hillary" letter. It lays out the master plan of the Clinton Administration to take over the entire U.S. educational system so that it can serve national economic planning of the workforce.

I found this out while researching this:
Versions of “Did You Know?” (4.0) video produced for the Economist’s Third Annual Media Convergence Forum in New York City on October 20–21, 2009. The world is changing fast: UK perspective Exponential growth
The Economist video makes it look as if we can blame bad US economy on the population numbers. Unfortunately, it’s about quality too.
Results By grade 4, American students only score in the middle of 26 countries reported. By grade 8 they are in the bottom third, and at the finish line, where it really counts, we're near dead last. Its even worse when you notice that some of the superior countries in grade 8 (especially the Asians) were not included in published 12th grade results. They do not need 12 grades. People have a tendency to think this picture is bleak but it doesn't apply to their own school. Chances are, even if your school compares well in SAT scores, it will still be a lightweight on an international scale.
1. By the time our students are ready to leave high school - ready to enter higher education and the labor force - they are doing so badly with science they are significantly weaker than their peers in other countries.
2. Our idea of "advanced" is clearly below international standards.
3. There appears to be a consistent weakness in our teaching performance in physical sciences that becomes magnified over the years.

In sync with a'ina

Our building asked us to install some big wooden doors that look "pretty" because they have glass.


The building with those doors really looks like a bunch of red necks from the mainland, trying to make HI look like some village in Ohio or something. It's ugly. It shows total disconnect from the land

In Hawaii, we need screen doors, ventilation and fresh air. We are 100ft from the ocean, with breeze from the mountains and ocean.Hello! Duh! Why do we live here - to make it look like we live in Michigan???

That's what red necks do - come to Hawaii because they love it that it is Hawaii and not Michigan or California or..., and THEN they start making it exactly like Michigan or California or wherever else they came from, because they are so used to it. That's called cancerous behavior - killing the host that feeds you.

what it means to be a woman in today's society

A: I agree with you about the feminine. I think it "gets me" and I have to figure it out. I think that I find myself playing too much the role of power but always at the expense of the feminine and I do not like it.
I am hearing you also about your having to wear "neutral" clothes. For me, I find myself always trying to figure out the system in such a way that my family is ok and I am ok.
Then, the question is: why are we doing all these things? what are we looking for in giving and giving to people in particular ways?

I do african dance. I go to class after teaching a computer class. One day I had my work pants still on. IT WAS AS IF I HAD SOME LOCK ON. I could not dance, I could not move my pelvis. My pelvis was locked. In order to survive in men's world, I totally turn off my feminine side at work, all sexuality, all and any feelings, and esp any awareness below my chest. I think it also has to do with where I am from, where "females are nothing"

For you, seems like you got SOME nourishment since you were able to get married and have children. In my case, damage seems to be a lot more severe because of no family of my own.

For any abdominal and other issues

works well: book "Luna Yoga" by Ohlig - yoga etc for all reproductive issues, for men and women
heals cysts, tumors, cancer, infertility, lack of libido, low sperm count, etc.
yoga postures but with emphasis on reproductive and pelvic region
Also, Aviva Steiner work on excercises to control fertility - you can be fertile or not, depending on how you move
For non-cancerous growths: castor oil pack, from Edgar Cayce
For any issues with acidity (i.e. any illness): drink apple cider vineger (has to be good quality - raw, organic, etc , e.g. by Braggs), 5 days, 2-3 times per day, 1 tsp in a cup of water, then rest 2 days, keep on going
Put apple cider vinegar (pick a good quality, e.g. by Braggs) compress with hot water bottle on top, to dissolve anything hard
For any growths and issues: drink Hawaiian noni juice - it has enzymes and regulates digestion and elimination and dissolves growths
You can also put noni compress. The best is just putting on a fresh prepared noni leaf, but that grows only in tropics. Noni leaf can pull out cancer. There must be similar plants in moderate climates.
I am going to be putting this on my blog,

Haven't written in a while. There have been so many things going on.

Deepening the knowledge on psoas. It is a very interesting and amazing muscle. What is quite fascinating is how it relates to the abdominal and lower back muscles, and also the internal abdominal organs, for example the iliosecal valve.

Another thing that is fascinating is the relationship of the various parts of the body and how a tight spot in one place propagates to other, seemingly unrelated, areas. Amazing.

mickey mouse business

A young French lady and me discussed our situation here in the USA, and how lonely and awful it is and how much we miss our families and way of life back home, where you are always surrounded by your community. She said it is just terrible to eat meals alone. Back home you always eat with your family.

We discussed families in the USA vs back home, and concluded that American way of life - where each Mickey and Minney Mouse have their own house and live alone and just "date" - was totally mickey mouse business, and completely abnormal. Who the heck decided to be all lone wolves like that. Maybe Americans can do it, but we cannot. Coming from family oriented background, this American way of life is STRANGE and quite bad, honestly. We miss our families and more community style of living.


So, that got me thinking - what am I doing in the USA? After 24 years, what have I made here? I came for a better life and yes, in some ways accomplished it.

On the other hand, all things that were STRANGE in the usa, for example awfully tasting plastic food, apples and other fruits and veggies that look pretty but have no taste whatsoever, big junky Wallmarts and buying "per pound", living alone, etc. all those strange things that were supposed to be "just temporary" while you get settled as an immigrant - well, they are not really temporary anymore, it has gone on for way too long!

And my response is: I want to eat REAL food, I want to live in a family, community style, I want to live in a house and have a garden and grow fruit trees and veggies and flowers.

everything is connected

I was feeling very sore and tired. Very. After dancing and work and little sleep and food, I was just exausted.

So I sat at the ocean shore and massaged my legs and then neck. It was QUITE amazing. I found a sore spot in the neck and massaged it out, and voila! I was completely fresh and refreshed. My mood improved, I was feeling energized and just fine.
