Capital/Liquidity ratios of 3% emerge triumphantFurther to this morning’s post (things do seem to be speeding up at last) you may recall I mentioned how the ECB thought that ‘a strict definition of bad debt could threaten banks in countries hit hardest by Europe’s debt crisis’. Just to enlarge on this a little, bad debt of the kind we’re talking about is rancid bordering on toxic: it ain’t never going to get paid back, and everyone knows this to be the case. What we’re witnessing here is Mario Draghi doing his Orwellian Ministry of Truth shtick, whereby something with blue paint on it marked Unfit for Human Consumption will be regraded as Quite Possibly Alright.

We excel to new heights in a steadier way in the spirit planes if we choose to stay there after passing on, but a lot of people choose to come back for reasons related to rapid soul growth and the desire to assist others in awakening. Continue reading →

A state Senator proposed legislation that seeks to thwart the proliferation of undetectable plastic firearms that can be produced using 3-D printers.
The bill, submitted by Sen. Kevin de Leon, would require that anybody who wants to assemble a homemade firearm undergo background checks and register their weapons with state officials.
Today, the legislation seems important as ever, given the technological changes in the gun industry. Three-dimensional printing, for example, is a new technology that permits people to download to a computer the blueprint for a particular firearm, which can then be produced on a 3D printer without any background checks.
n a post-Snowden world where NSA surveillance has been exposed as ubiquitous, one man decided to invent a networking system akin to Twitter, but with one key difference: It would be surveillance-proof and completely decentralized. Meet ‘Twister.’
Miguel Freitas was always a big Twitter fan – especially as it drummed out information on the June mass protests in his native Brazil at a time when no competent up-to-the-minute source existed locally.
But even though Twitter to him symbolized what decentralized media is, Freitas, in an interview with Wired magazine, opened up about his feelings that a world in which the NSA apparently has its nose in every conceivable internet communication would soon need new avenues for information exchange. Ten years of people blissfully communicating their daily routines and locations to Facebook, Twitter and other services have led to large segments of society seeking a newer, upgraded kind of networking, Freitas says.
Ohhh my goodness, I have the greatest metaphor coming thru about this extraordinary, expansive time we are going thru right now and I feel, setting us up for the greatet expansion underway…
Imagine when we were born physically into this plane of existence, we arrived in a fish bowl. Some had larger fish bowl with really good fish care takers, some had tiny, cramped fish bowls with not so great care takers. But we all started out living in the boundaries of the fishbowl. Most of our fishbowls had frosted glass on them, so we couldn’t really see anything beyond what every one else living in that fishbowl told us was there or even “out there.” Continue reading →

Convicted criminals in Netherlands might start paying 16 euro ($22) per day for accommodation as the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice wants to introduce a bill aimed at reducing state jail costs.
“Convicted criminals have broken the law and received a penalty. Offenders are being asked to make a contribution… because of high costs,” the ministry said in a statement Monday.
Under the proposal, the convicts may have to pay 16 euro per day for a maximum of two years for time spent behind bars. Parents of under-aged prisoners would also be liable for the charge. The convicted would be given six weeks to pay, adds the statement.
The two police officers acquitted of violently killing a homeless man in California still might face federal charges as the FBI prepares to reexamine the case.
Testimony and evidence entered during the trial surrounding the death of a schizophrenic homeless man from California will be examined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an FBI spokesperson said Monday.
A representative for the FBI field office in Los Angeles told the LA Times on Monday evening that the United States Department of Justice will review the contents of the case before determining if federal charges should be filed against the two former Fullerton, CA police officers acquitted earlier that night of killing the man, Kelly Thomas, in 2011.

It is widely accepted that life is hard. My sister was not the only one whose favorite saying was “Life sucks and then you die.” The whole notion of a joyful existence comes off as a frivolous idea – cool if you are lucky enough to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth or if you are one of those perpetually optimistic people; but not realistic.
To write here that joy is or ought to be your focus sounds nice but a bit naive. Rather, it would seem more efficient and helpful to focus on abundance, health or even free energy. Joy may result if those things are in place, but it is not the priority. Continue reading →
