28 Nov 2007
Modified: 12:59:33 PM

Yet in July this year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations note in a Report: '..with deep regret', all the: 'pre-famine indicators being in place'. Further that an appreciable proportion of the population now had less calorific intake than the most famine stricken parts of Africa.

Think Not 'Global' Warming - Think 'Oceans' Warming
28 Nov 2007
Global warming seems mysterious to most of
us. A 1 degree rise in annual global temperature
sounds minuscule, doesn't it....... until you
remember that the oceans are involved ........
... very heavily involved.

The oceans are simply unfathomably immense!
Their mass is actually incomprehensible, being
70% of the earth's surface (310 million cubic miles).
If you could stack water 100 cubic miles long and

31,000 miles into outer space. That is truly an
astronomical amount of water!

27 Nov 2007
Cannabis cultivation rose 40 percent in Afghanistan this year, to 173,000 acres from 123,550 in 2006, the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime estimated in its 2007 opium survey. The crop is being grown in at least 18 of Afghanistan's 34 provinces, according to the survey released last month. The U.N. report singles out Balkh as a "leading example" of an opium-free province, saying other areas should follow "the model of this northern region where leadership, incentives and security have led farmers to turn their backs on opium."

A Generalized Meltdown of Financial Institutions
27 Nov 2007
By Mike Whitney

11/24/07 "ICH" -- - Reality has finally caught up to the stock market. The American consumer is underwater, the banks are buried in dept, and the housing market is in terminal distress. The Dow is now below its 200-Day Moving Average -- the first big "sell" signal. Anything below 12,500 could trigger program-trading and crash the market. The increased volatility suggests that we are watching a "real time" meltdown.
