T he social framework for connecting everyone to everything and everywhere they “like” with the push of a button  is convenience personified until your realize a month into the new arrangement you’re tangled in your own web of preferences. Compromising what’s left of personal privacy on the Web seems unavoidable. Setting ourselves up for a constant barrage of propositions from companies and individuals who think they are relevant to us will be problematic. The number of Internet players replicating Facebook’s personal relevance approach to more effectively mine users will simply be astronomical. Regardless of  the privacy policy and safeguards Facebook institutes, we’ll be asking ourselves six months from now just how we got from obsessing over Internet privacy breeches to enabling the world’s dominant social network to splash it all across the World Wide Web. As ReadWriteWeb points out, relative few users will take the time to closely study the terms of Facebook’s new “instant personalization “  or track the impact of virally morphing one’s personal thumb print.

It involves the active (re)creation of knowledge in an environment that fosters and supports the creation of communities. George Siemens  talks about the following characteristics of a learning ecology: a collection of overlapping communities of interest; cross pollinating with each other; constantly evolving; largely self organizing.   This puts the focus on learning communities  responding to the challenge of adapting and evolving through the reordering of their own priorities in the light of local and national imperatives.

(POT PLANTS HAVE A WHOLE NEW MEANING SINCE LAST WEEK’S RAID]  A science fair project MICROWAVE WATER - SEE WHAT IT DOES TO PLANTS ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Below is a science fair project. In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference.           I have known for years that the problem with microwaved
  • anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, It's how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it. So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these "Safe" appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed them when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it's safe. Never mind then, keep using them. Ask your Doctor I am sure they will say it's safe too. Proof is in the pictures of living plants dying. Remember You are also Living. Take Care. FORENSIC RESEARCH DOCUMENT Prepared By: William P. Kopp A. R. E. C.. Research Operations TO61-7R10/10-77F05  RELEASE PRIORITY: CLASS I ROO1a Ten Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven >From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following: 1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term - permanent - brain damage by "shorting out" electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue]. 2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the   unknown by-products created in microwaved food.. 3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods. 4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body. 5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down. 6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens. 7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America . 8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.   9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations. 10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.   Have you tossed out your microwave oven yet? After you throw out your microwave you can use a toaster oven as a replacement. It works well for most and is nearly as quick. The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. "brainwashing", has also been proven. We're attempting to obtain copies of the 1970's Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

The Art of Hosting a leadership practice focused on creating organizational learning that unleashes the power of collective intelligence. The current generation of Art of Hosting practitioners are using several practices such as Open Space Technology, World Cafe, Circle, and Appreciative Inquiry in creative and effective ways. This fosters learning in communities or organizations, ignites communities of practice, and strategically encourages social change. These processes foster synergy and provide ways for people to engage with intention, design deliberately, focus on outcomes, and support deliberate action. The Art of Hosting is highly relevant where there is an individual or organizational need to develop learning, strategic capabilities and to foster innovation. The Art of Hosting is built on the assumption and experience that we need to find new solutions for the common good, whether in corporations, government, education, non-profits, social movements, communities or families.
