wesannac2An intuitive message by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

Your creative and expressive abilities can be clear and free-flowing, and all it takes is the willingness not to let the ego heavily influence your creativity or anything else you do to bring your planet into the light.

Capitalist Forces Could Create ‘Uncontrollable’ Artificial Intelligence – Scientist – 24 February 2015

RT logoArtificial intelligence (AI) needs to develop human emotion if humanity is to avoid the potential existential threat posed by machines capable of consciousness, a leading scientist has warned.

Computers that are “human-like” will be capable of empathy and moral reasoning, therefore reducing the risk of AI turning against humanity, he said.

Murray Shanahan, professor of cognitive robotics at Imperial College London, cautioned against “capitalist forces” developing AI without any sense of morality, arguing it could lead to potentially “uncontrollable military technologies.”

Laura Bruno – Mia Feroleto – H.E.M.P. – 24 February 2015

laura-of-the-rocksMia Feroleto contacted me again by email with her latest article supporting and celebrating the possibilities of re-legalized hemp growing. This piece was first published in 13 Folds Magazine, which focuses only on the issue of cannabis in all its forms. In her email, Mia shared some other exciting behind the scenes developments, and I look forward to posting the official reports of those, as well.

If you’re wondering, “Why hemp?” then this article provides a glimpse into the ways legalized hemp growing can (and has already begun to) transform America — in all the big areas like the economy, transportation, healthcare, clean building materials, veterans’ reintegration to society, healthy food … . It’s easy to see why the gasoline giants and BigPharmafia have suppressed hemp for the past 70 years. Other countries already use hemp in construction, but imagine how this process would grow if the US went back to its historical roots and could use our vast toxic, GMO corn fields for something that heals the land and grows like …  well … weed. 😉 Continue reading

ZeroHedge – Former Ukraine Deputy PM Says “Another Coup Can Not Be Ruled Out” Among Currency Implosion, Central Bank Charges – 24 February 2015

ZeroHedgeA year or so on from the last coup in Ukraine, Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Sergey Arbuzov told TASS, with growing popular discontent, “another state coup can’t be ruled out in Ukraine.” As the cease-fire deal hangs torn and tattered in the Debaltseve winds, the nation is a mess: a new gas dispute looms as Gazprom demands upfront payments; capital controls have been tightened as the $17.5bn IMF loan may not be enough; and the central bank governor faces prosecution as the economy craters. All of these factors have driven massive outflows from Ukraine and the Hryvnia has crashed to over 33 to the USD – a record high (and 70% devaluation from the last coup).
