There is a pervasive confusion about sex and intimacy. We use the words interchangeably, but purely physical intimacy stops way short of a meaningful experience or a sustainable connection. The more we focus on the physicality of sex—how we look, what we wear, toys and techniques—the further we get from true intimacy.
With more than 160 million pets in American households, and possibly upwards of 800 million worldwide, our favorite companions have quickly become an unsustainable force to be reckoned with. Even so, there are plenty of ways to extend your eco-friendly lifestyle to your pets – you just have to know where to start.
Sandra Bland, who made it clear that she wanted the next generation to understand their “history and survival,” would have supported their speaking truth to power, just as she did before she was silenced, and just as Wells and Shakur did before them.

What the researchers found was that 71 percent of the rise in carbon emissions from 1997 to 2007 was due to “economic growth.” Alternately, “83 percent of the decrease during 2007-2009 was due to decreased consumption and changes in the production structure of the U.S. economy,” with just 17 percent related to changes in the type of fuels used.
Physicist Wal Thornhill continues his discussion of NASA’s New Horizons mission to the dwarf planet Pluto. The mission has already provided a number of surprises for planetary scientists. The tiny planet’s geological activity, its apparent age, the stunning features on its moons and more all defy many fundamental ideas in planetary science.
Have you ever observed that time seems to be going by faster as you get older? There’s a reason that one summer seems to stretch out forever when you’re a kid, but zips by before you know it when you’re 30. That reason is perspective, as a gorgeous interactive visualization, by Austrian designer Maximilian Kiener, demonstrates. When you’re one year old, a year is literally forever to you — it’s all the time that you’ve ever known. But as you grow older, one year is a smaller and smaller fraction of your total life. It’s like watching something shrink in your rear view mirror.
Your car CAN be hacked! James Corbett discusses the confirmation of yet another “conspiracy theory,” namely that cars can be remotely hacked and controlled.
Women’s brains might be more vulnerable to the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s disease than men’s, causing them to decline in memory and cognitive function twice as fast, according to new research that could explain why women make up two-thirds of all diagnosed Alzheimer’s cases in the US.
The finding was presented this week at the 2015 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in Washington, DC, with the team also noting that women tend to decline more dramatically than men in cognition, function, and brain size after they’ve been in surgery or under general anaesthesia.
a truly mind-boggling set of experiments, discussed in an article in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2004, Dr Rollin McCraty from the Heartmath Institute—a leading-edge research center for the scientific study of heart coherence and its health benefits and of other aspects of this revolutionary new science of the heart—found that the heart seems to ‘know’ the emotional future.
This week is dominated by two astrological squares. Now, a square is when two planets are at right angles to one another, and this can cause a certain amount of abrasive energy
There is more going on in space than you can ever imagine. Out of sight, out of mind. That is how the greatest secrets in the history of humankind have remained hidden from the populace. For the first time ever, a 30-year insider has come forward to reveal over 70 years of humanity’s hidden history in space. Corey Goode joins David Wilcock in this inaugural presentation of Cosmic Disclosure to offer an overview of their upcoming interviews which detail the history and extent of humanity’s celestial presence.
The evidence for reincarnation is the best hard scientific evidence we have for the existence of a soul. This is a bold claim, but the evidence for reincarnation is undeniable and cannot collectively be attributed to chance or any other physical explanation. If reincarnation exists, the soul exists. Let’s take a look!
Essentially, there is no separation between life and death. They are both, in fact, complimentary. And that is one of the many paradoxes of our mighty Universe. Unfortunately, that’s not we are taught as children.
Singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams just released a soul-stirring and thought-provoking piece of musical activism called “Freedom!” The video expands on his lyrics (see below), with nods to slavery, the environment, science, plus political, gender, and sexual freedoms.
Last week, a story about The Runaways’ Jackie Fuchs, centered around her account of being raped by the late music entrepreneur Kim Fowley in a motel room full of people on New Year’s Eve in 1975, challenged the very idea that rock and roll is something worth loving. Fuchs’ account hit the music world like a bomb that obliterated all taste of cherry from our mouths, demanding the acknowledgment of certain painful facts from anyone who loves 1970s pop culture, that groundbreaking all-female band in particular, or the romantic notion that music celebrating and enacting sexual openness is a force for freedom and empowerment.
The Anti-Defamation League is shocked and disappointed that hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons compared New York’s horse-drawn carriages to slavery and the Holocaust. Speaking at an event organized by horse-carriage opponents, Simmons said of those who were OK with horse-drawn carriages, “There were people for slavery, remember. Slavery was fine. There were people who put people in ovens. There are all kinds of ethnic cleansing, people for it.” “The comparison of animal suffering to that of human suffering in the Holocaust and in slavery is outrageous, offensive and insensitive,” ADL national director Abe Foxman, who himself is a Holocaust survivor, said in a statement.
Russell, was a friend of Amy’s and is a self-proclaimed former addict. In this video, he courageously examines some deep questions as to whether the talented young Londoner could have been saved. Openly admitting that he probably could have done more for her himself, Russell also questions the potentially lethal role our media-voracious culture may have played in Amy’s demise.

Members of U.S. Congress who vote against mandatory labeling for genetically modified (GMO) products receive three times as much funding from the food and agriculture lobbies as their colleagues, according to new reporting from Open Secrets, a project of the Center for Responsive Politics.
Attention all members of the global development community: there’s a new player in town. After almost three years of negotiations, senior officials from the world’s five largest emerging economies Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — collectively known as the BRICS — finally unveiled Tuesday a new multilateral bank.
Like a pebble thrown into a still pond, once federal cannabis law is essentially nullified, states where lawmakers were previously reluctant to approve medical or even recreational use will be far likelier to approve decriminalization. As ripples go, once constituents see neighboring states end prohibition, the chance exists for those states with even the harshest pot penalties to succumb to public pressure and follow suit. It’s entirely feasible to expect the death of cannabis prohibition altogether, resulting from this single-sentence legislation.
On Thursday, 275 members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of H.R. 1599, the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. By voting for the DARK Act, these politicians voted against truth and transparency, against science, against the more than century-old right of states to legislate on matters relating to food safety and labeling. They voted against the 90-percent of Americans who are in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs. They voted against the producers of non-GMO foods. They voted against you.
It’s never been more obvious that Greece has been sold out to the banks. Like many countries before, their nation has been scheduled to endure poverty and chaos, followed by a firesale of their assets. The latest evidence of their nation’s capture by the banks, is the selling of their numerous islands to wealthy buyers.
Here’s a roundup of stories and studies on a theme we’ve been covering here at The Watch, the criminalization of poverty. Houston police arrested a single mother last week for “abandoning” her six-year-old and two-year-old in a food court while she went to a job interview. She says she couldn’t afford to hire childcare, and that the children were only 30 feet away, and never out of her sight.
Living Big In A Tiny House host Bryce Langston and tiny home owner Brett Sutherland take us inside Brett’s amazing little 15 square metre (161 square feet) jewel, which Brett designed and built himself. Packed with unique, space saving design elements, Brett has created a fantastic space to both live and work.
How did they build the cabin so cheaply? Well, it helps that the property was owned by Olson’s family, so they got a great deal on that. Additionally, the dwelling has no plumbing or electricity, and almost all of the building materials are repurposed.
University of Texas design student, Joel Webber had a desire many college students have — to reduce the debt of his college years. But unlike many of us, he used that desire to motivate him to create a beautiful 145 tiny home. Rather than spend $800/month for housing, Webber invested $20,000 into his own tiny house. It’s very cleverly designed — the steps up to his loft double as storage cubbies — which means it feels much bigger than 145 feet (which is on the smaller side for a tiny house).
