The Cannabis Man comes forth
By : Bud Hayes - Thursday October 13, 2005
8 comments
They do say that appearances can be deceptive. Perhaps whoever coined the phrase had the foresight to have the Cannabis Man in mind. Here is a man who works seven days a week, works out five times a week and has been growing his precious plants for thirteen years whenever time allowed. Not once in thirteen years has he sold so much as a leaf. All he has done in that time is learn everything there is to know about the weed; experimenting on himself; examining health benefits; testing (...)

Climate Change and Human Health
By : Paul R. Epstein - Saturday October 8, 2005

by Paul R. Epstein In 1998, Hurricane Mitch dropped six feet of rain on Central America in three days. In its wake, the incidence of malaria, dengue fever, cholera, and leptospirosis soared. In 2000, rain and three cyclones inundated Mozambique for six weeks, and the incidence of malaria rose fivefold. In 2003, a summer heat wave in Europe killed tens of thousands of people, wilted crops, set forests ablaze, and melted 10 percent of the Alpine glacial mass. This summer’s blistering (...)

What do we make of the Saturday, October 1 Washington Post headline “Poison Found in Air During Anti-War Protest”? Washington D.C. Public Health Director Greg A. Pane posed the right question in the Post article, “Why that day? That’s what is not explained.” Pane pointed that it was “just this 24-hour period and none since.” The Post noted that Pane found “. . . it was puzzling that the finding was from a day when the mall was packed with (...)

WHO Backs Away From 150 Million Flu Deaths The World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Friday 2-7.4 million deaths was a reasonable working forecast for a global influenza pandemic — distancing itself from a top UN official’s figure of up to 150 million. Dr. David Nabarro, named on Thursday as the UN coordinator for global readiness against an outbreak, had said that the world response would determine whether a flu virus ends up killing 5 million or as many as 150 million. (...)

Sept. 30, 2005 — A relatively rare biological agent has been detected in air filters serving Washington D.C. in recent weeks, ABC News has learned - but current evidence does not show any indication whatsoever of terrorism. The federal government found six air filters around the nation’s capital checked on Sept. 24 and 25 contained "trace amounts" of tularemia, a type of bacteria. The tests were conducted as part of routine homeland security procedures, in which selected air (...)

Is St. Rita’s Subject to the Rules of the Free Market?
By : LightUpTheDarkness.org - Thursday September 15, 2005

In the midst of the rising numbers of tragedies in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, there is likely to be none more gruesome than the drowning of 34 patients at St. Rita’s Nursing Home. St. Rita’s was run by Salvador and Mable Mangano. A quick check of the Medicare “Nursing Home Compare” web site indicates that the Mangano’s ran a home with mixed reviews, a higher than average rate of restraining patients, for example, but a lower than average rate of (...)

From a psychologist First-hand reaction to Katrina refuges

There are so many words that come to mind. As a scholar I am thinking Diaspora, social displacement, systemic disruption, mass trauma, pandemic and unbelievable chaos. As a clinician, I am looking at something that we have never been trained to handle in this country — a level of victimization and its resultant psycho-social ripples that mandate a whole new field of clinical practice-mass victimology. Katrina kicked the top off of a racist and social termite’s nest that has been (...)

Bush administration snubs Cuban hurricane relief offer

By Bill Van Auken Among the many offers of aid for New Orleans and Gulf Coast disaster victims that the Bush administration has either blocked, squandered or delayed is that of a substantial emergency medical brigade from Cuba.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
