Senseless and barbaric, like any "tradition" involving hunting and/or slaughtering living creatures. No further comment. #tweet4taiji
 
A excellent article how it explains the practice of the killing and how it would be illegal even in Japanese law to kill cows and pigs this way. #tweet4taiji

Sadly there are still countries, advanced countries, where people are on their own when it comes to getting an effective treatment when they are hit by grave illnesses..

We are lucky that our Dad's still with us, thanks to what was then an experimental, and individually unaffordable treatment. This was made possible purely because we were lucky enough to live in a small country where the health risks, as well as the benefits of high quality medical care, are shared as fairly as possible.

Let's close this loophole and stop cancer from snatching Dominique away from her loved ones and friends. She is just my age.
 
A dear friend of mine was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. She's an amazing woman, and her family & friends are trying to raise money to help with her medical expenses.
If appreciate it if you'd share this link..

Disturbing. Turkish doctor arrested for treating injured #Taksim Square demonstrators? If this is so, what kind of regime is Turkey, really?! 
 
I am sorry to have to interrupt once again my usual science related posts this Sunday... but I am stunned and deeply disturbed by this photo of police arresting a medical doctor in Istanbul, Turkey for helping Turkish protestors injured by the police violence!

Medical doctors are under the Hippocratic Oath to help anyone in need for their health, which is protected by the Declaration of Geneva by General Assembly of World Medical Association and the United Nations  ... I am proud of the courage of these Turkish doctors and truly ashamed by the egregious human rights violations by prime minister Erdogan's government.

My goodness... I'd never believed evil can truly exist. Now that I have seen the unforgiving, burning hatred in Robert Blecker's eyes my certainties are a bit shaken. His keenness to punish and inflict suffering seems fueled by the same unwavering hubris that led Inquisition to torture and burn people at the stake. This only confirms how retributive "justice" is a delusional, counter-productive, and immoral construct that only contradicts its very own stated purposes, while not even remotely qualifying as Justice. For the true meaning of Justice stands between the lines of reparation and healing. Our pseudo-justice systems rarely allow for this. Because of people like Blecker, we Humans remain stuck in endless cycles of violence -- and are taught to embrace and love it. Well, hate to break it to you, but that SUCKS, and I won't have any of this BS. Nor should anyone.

Not much to add, really. Except Syria's a mess, all between a rock and a hard place. It's not the good guys vs. the bad guys, but rather cvilians taken hostages and abused or slaughtered in turn by equally devious and despicable fanatic, and barbaric "fighters" on each side. We are culturally unprepared to cope with a situation that does not correspond to the good old binary "Good vs. Evil" model. This may in part explain why we find it "comforting" to concern ourselves with things like Batman, superheroes, Star Wars etc... Their oversimplified premises connect us with the comfortable "Black vs. White, Good vs. Evil..." patterns that we know and are familiar with.

Not an American, but this does have import outside U.S. borders. I, for one, will be watching very closely. Especially after the bullying Switzerland went through about its democratically determined homeland tax policies.
 
The Constitution was designed to prohibit in every conceivable way known to its framers just the kind of authoritarian intrusion by central government on autonomous self-governing citizens that the Bush and Obama administrations' power-grabbing, privacy-invading nationwide snooping on innocent citizens represents.
