Boston Anti-War Memorial Day Event
26 May 2009
Boston, Mass. May 25, 2009--Boston Veterans For Peace and Military Families Speakout held their second annual anti-war Memorial Day observance in Waterfront Park on May 25, 2009. Speakers spoke about the devastation of the Iraq/Afghan wars and the terrible toll taken on US soldiers as well as civilians. After the speakers, the names of each Mass. soldier killed in Iraq/Afghanistan were read aloud and a flower was tossed in the harbor water after each name was read. Bouquets of flowers were tossed in the water for the million civilian deaths in the two wars. This anti-war Memorial Day event stood in stark contrast to the many pro-war Memorial Day events held today.

Phobaeticus Chani
29 May 2009
Recently the Boston celebrated Anti-War Memorial Day Event. Many of us really want to have peaceful life, no wars, no injustice and regain our economy back into progress. Just like us, animals/insects needs habitat where they can live peacefully, but because of these wars and other acts of damaging the forest, seas, and other habitats some of them considered as to be endangered. Only to inform you, did you know an insect called Phobaeticus Chani? (See: http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/05/22/phobaeticus-chani-new ) Phobaeticus Chani is officially the world's longest insect. The erstwhile insect, Phobaeticus Chani or Chans Megastick is a stick insect from Malaysia that measures up to about two feet long, and was unknown until late 2008. It's one of several newly discovered species that ought to call for a boost to science funding and a payday to science programs. Another fascinating new species is Leptotyphlops carlae, or the Barbados Threadsnake. It's incredibly tiny, smaller than a lot of worms, but it is an actual snake. It is oft forgot how little we actually know about our own world, and scientific study is worth payday advances as we can learn more Phobaeticus Chani and other species as yet unknown.
