Praised by Zak Smith, staff attorney, Marine Mammal Protection Project, +Natural Resources Defense Council, Patricia Cori's The Emissary "uses fiction to bring some of the very urgent issues being addressed by the Natural Resources Defense Council and other conservation groups to a vast audience."

Watch Patricia Cori's recent presentation at the +San Francisco Public Library  that focuses on the real events that inspired The Emissary, and the global threats to whales and dolphins that are included in her narrative.

Robert David Steele, former Marine, CIA case officer, and US co-founder of the US Marine Corps intelligence activity, has trained more than 66 countries in open source methods and is now calling for re-invention of intelligence to re-engineer Earth. "We have over 5 billion human brains that are the one infinite resource available to us going forward. Crowd-sourcing and cognitive surplus are two terms of art for the changing power dynamic between those at the top that are ignorant and corrupt, and those across the bottom that are attentive and ethical."

These hot summer days call for cool treats. While the popularity of unconventional #icecream flavors seems to be growing, people can been seen lining up around the block to try a refreshing taste of "unconventional" ice cream flavors like beet balsamic, honey lavender, or cardamom. For those of you adventurous foodies, here is a simple recipe for #hemp ice cream, using hemp nuts, which are high in protein, and hempseed oil, which contains all the essential fatty acids. http://nabcommunities.com/2013/05/27/nourish-for-adventurous-foodies-hemp-ice-cream/

In a recent interview with +OMTimes Media, Dr. Linda Bender explains, "Animals support our growth emotionally, spiritually and promote physical health, as so many recent scientific studies have shown. Consider the amazing healing we have seen when children bond with animals after exposure to physical trauma, divorce, and illness. Prisoners who help train rescue dogs feel love and purpose often for the first time in their lives. These are just a few examples. When we help an animal we help ourselves – taking your dog for a walk also gives you the benefit of exercise!"

Denounced in the popular press as “the wickedest man in the world,” occult writer Aleister Crowley (1875–1947) influenced generations of artists, punks, wiccans, and other denizens of the demimonde. He's remembered as the world’s foremost authority on #magick.
