Everywhere you look, you can see the effects of our government's neglect! I passed our local food bank when on my way to do some errands and even in our small town there are many families who depend on the food bank to be sure their family is fed! At what point do people finally say enough is enough and quit taking it? The government has the money to fund the occupation of Palestine and bomb and interfere in every country in the world but its own people need help!

always wondered about "on time" versus "in time" 
"It turns out, Hollywood got it half right. In the film Arrival, Amy Adams plays linguist Louise Banks who is trying to decipher an alien language. She discovers the way the aliens talk about time gives them the power to see into the future – so as Banks learns their language, she also begins to see through time. As one character in the movie says: “Learning a foreign language rewires your brain.”

My new study – which I worked on with linguist Emanuel Bylund – shows that bilinguals do indeed think about time differently, depending on the language context in which they are estimating the duration of events. But unlike Hollywood, bilinguals sadly can’t see into the future. However, this study does show that learning a new way to talk about time really does rewire the brain. Our findings are the first psycho-physical evidence of cognitive flexibility in bilinguals."

Historian Yuval Noah Harari on the emergence of biological inequality, and avoiding systemic genocide.

"Once the masses lose their economic importance and political power, the state loses at least some of the incentive to invest in their health, education and welfare. It’s very dangerous to be redundant. In a time of crisis it would be very tempting, and easy, to toss you overboard."
