U.S. efforts to overthrow foreign governments leave the world less peaceful, less just and less hopeful.

Thanks Daniel, and +Jose Canaura sharing here and www.fb.com/simcha18 +Jose Canaura , +Jose Canaura?
 
I got a bit of flak for resharing +Prince Wonder's post last night that criticized the ice bucket challenge, and I promised to respond to those comments, but I’m choosing to do so publicly.  Anyone who doesn’t like my response is free to uncircle me, block me, whatever.

Let’s start with the question of whether water is a renewable resource.  Yes, water is, ostensibly, a renewable resource: 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, and the hydrologic cycle works to keep water moving through the ecosystem.  And yet, of the 3.26000000000000004^23 gallons (1.2340424158400007^24 liters) of water on our planet, only three percent of that is fresh water, and of that, two-thirds is locked away in glaciers and the polar ice caps.  In other words, fresh water is relatively rare (http://water.usgs.gov/edu/earthhowmuch.html, http://wwf.panda.org/about_our_earth/teacher_resources/webfieldtrips/water/).

What this means is that water is not really a renewable resource, because human population growth is continuing fairly rapidly.  Seven+ billion people need access to clean drinking water.  This puts an huge strain on the already limited supply, as surface and groundwater is being consumed faster than the ecosystem can replenish it through the hydrologic cycle (http://pubs.usgs.gov/circ/circ1186/html/intro.html).

Case in point: California.  Over-pumping of groundwater and dwindling surface water combined with “exceptional drought” conditions mean that the state only has up to eighteen months of water reserves (http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-famiglietti-southern-california-drought-20140709-story.html; see also: http://waterinthewest.stanford.edu/groundwater/overview/index.html, and http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/08/140819-groundwater-california-drought-aquifers-hidden-crisis/).

Furthermore, much of the Southwest is experiencing drought conditions, and patches of “abnormally dry” or “D0” areas can be found all over the country, including Long Island, New York.  This D0 condition that is affecting Long Island and other nearby areas is considered a long-term issue, as it has persisted for more than six months (http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/).

Another misapprehension that people seem to hold is that only people in developing areas lack access to safe water.  That’s incorrect.  Ten million people in developed countries lack access to safe water, too (http://water.org/water-crisis/water-facts/water/).  And in the United States alone, thirteen percent of Native American households lack access to safe water and proper sanitation.  Let me repeat that: thirteen percent of Native American households here in the United States lack access to safe water and proper sanitation (http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=37691&Cr=sanitation&Cr1#.U_up3fldX4Y) (so it’s not just some little thirsty African kid in the Sahel).  That is completely unacceptable in my view, and yet I should be OK with people dumping buckets of water over their heads.  Never gonna happen.

Worldwide, however, “780 million people – about one in nine – lack access to clean water.  More than twice that many, 2.5 billion people, don’t have access to a toilet” (http://water.org/water-crisis/one-billion-affected/), with woman and girls being disproportionally affected:

Millions of women are prohibited from accomplishing little more than survival.  Not because of a lack of ambition, or ability, but because of a lack of safe water and adequate sanitation.  Millions of women and children in the developing world spend until hours daily collecting water from distant, often polluted sources, then return to their villages carrying their filled 40 pound jerry cans on their backs (http://water.org/water-crisis/water-facts/women/.)

This means that women and girls cannot:
* have a livelihood or earn an income
* care for family members
* go to school

(http://www.wssinfo.org/fileadmin/user_upload/resources/1278061137-JMP_report_2010_en.pdf, http://www.charitywater.org/whywater/.)

Furthermore, it’s not just a question of being thirsty.  Contaminated water contributes to the deaths of over 4,000 children each day in the developing world from diarrhea (http://whqlibdoc.who.int/publications/2009/9789241598415_eng.pdf), while thousands of others die each day from issues arising from the lack of access to clean water (http://whqlibdoc.who.int/publications/2008/9789241596435_eng.pdf.)

So when I consider that so many children are dying from the lack of safe water and adequate sanitation while so many people in the West are dumping this resource out with the expectation that it’s going back into the ecosystem, or that it’s going to be renewed easily, or that it’s only little “thirsty” kids in poor countries—certainly not in the United States, oh no!—well, I just have a problem with that.

Give all the money you want to support ALS research—it’s important research will wide-ranging applications beyond just ALS—but  don’t tell me that no one is being harmed in the process of this ice bucket challenge, because people are dying from the lack of clean water, and we’re literally throwing it away.

On the point of research funding, it’s misleading to say that the ALS Association spent 28 percent of expenses, not total combined revenue, on funding research.  As a percentage of total combined revenue, that number is much smaller.  It’s true that I lack the skill needed to interpret the financial statements and  precisely calculate the total combined revenue for the ALSA’s fiscal year ending January 31, 2014, but I can estimate it based on 1) the percent it increased between 2012 and 2013 (16.62 percent), and 2) the average of the percentage of total combined revenue spent on research funding in 2012 and 2013 (8.97 percent):

Total combined revenue (estimate): $75,408,266 – $79,938,473
Research grants as a percentage of total combined revenue (estimate): 9 – 9.5 percent

This seems like a reasonable estimate, but if someone who can look at the financial statements for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2014, and calculate the total combined revenue, please do: http://www.alsa.org/assets/pdfs/fy2014-20als-20association-20financial-20statements-20final.pdf.

Finally, there’s the harsh reality that no one living with Lou Gehrig’s disease today will benefit resulting directly or indirectly from all the donated money from this ice bucket challenge.  No one.  This is a tragedy of heart-crushing proportions.  Any advances are likely  years or decades away.  Again, does it mean one should not donate to that cause?  Of course not—and that’s not my complaint, nor has it ever been my complaint.  But if you want to make an almost immediate and long-lasting positive impact on the lives of literally billions of people around the world, fund water projects in developing areas, and do so via an organization such as Charity:Water that uses 100 percent of the donations from individuals to fund water projects that directly benefit people right now: http://my.charitywater.org.

Did you know that comedian and host of the WTF podcast Marc Maron and the company hosting this social network, namely Google also share our birthday?

Hope you have a GREAT day Charles

Ah, smell the Zionist Bullshit. h/t +Brian Goulet. Thanks +The Christian Science Monitor
 
Israel’s campaign to win global support for its fight against Hamas by comparing it to the brutal Islamic State (formerly ISIS) may be resonating at home, but it’s eliciting snickers from many abroad -- and could lead to major strategic errors. #Israel #Hamas #Gaza #Palestine #IS #Iraq #MiddleEast
The Israeli government has been working hard to convince the world that Hamas and the Islamic State, the jihadi group in Iraq and Syria, are cut from the same cloth.

a great way to "do" or just enjoy breakfast, the other reviewers on ere nail it so well, not much for me to do except risk plagiarism or prove i'm not much of a creative writer :)

Great stop after riding with friends or meeting for dinner or moving on. Beer variety is awesome, not the hugest selection but well managed list and recommendations, specials. Come see what you are missing.

The staff here is always well-mannered, responsive young people, I think affiliated with a houseless youth charity. Plus the yumminess of the company Ben and Jerry set free to run without them having as much input.

especially nice to visit after buying a Mac and needing to know about accessories and upgrades, service, etc. Somehow has a better vibe than the Apple owned stores in Tigard, or downtown's "Apple Store"

Delicious food with thoughtful preparation at a price that can't be beat! Interface with the other guests who are from a crowd sometimes judgmentally avoided. limited hours but worth the wait for a unique brunch or lunch experience that will be an awakening :)
