Bird Flu - There is No Such Thing - German Virologist

Christopher Ray; Rolf Martens; Liam Scheff | Is there a bird flu pandemic? German virologist Dr. Stephan Lanka says no, and does so in detail.

He makes some points that I’m sure will seem startling, but there’s a wonderfully no-nonsense, common-sense approach to his thinking (“Think for yourself, look into it yourself”), and a refreshing lack of fear-mongering.

THE IWW DEFEAT AT STARBUCKS

a union activist | Industrial Workers of the World IU # 660's Starbucks Workers Union made a noble effort to unionize 3 Starbucks stores in Downtown Manhattan. Despite their best intentions, the union activists involved basically bit off more than they could chew. After all, it is hard for 4 people to face off a multibillion dollar global retail giant, with a high turnover workforce and an elaborate system of on the job surveillance. So, the IWW was faced with coming up with an exit strategy. They actually did a good job of that. Sadly, the union has declined to face reality, and admit that a defeat is a defeat. more...  7 Comments

U.S. repression of journalists

nann via granma | Bush and his ultra-right honchos are really pissed this time – in their efforts to track down a US loyalist, who spilt the beans on domestic spying, the Bush gestapo are now targeting journos and the free press. All the ‘security’ agencies at this megalomaniac’s disposal have been commandeered for the task. This attack on the free press is yet another devastating blow directed at the already battered body of American democracy and liberty. America, the home of the brave and the land of the free, has been relegated to the historical record. This new land is an abominable aberration of the original.

“..and we all shine on..” – in the dark!

[History does record that the American Revolution was won by a brave and fearless people – they are without doubt in extremely short supply today!] more...  1 Comments

Academic Collapse and Bureaucratic Despotism in Argentine Culture. Letter to Kirchner

Eduardo R. Saguier | In order to reach an international audience the Document has to be written in the english language, and to avoid its contamination with apocryphal signatures a neutral institution like PetitionOnline had to be chosen. A free academic discussion is not possible within CONICET, neither in the rest of institutions that are concerned with education and culture, due to a climate of fear. The present invitation has been signed by a committee of six members.
