The Arrival of Vata Season (Anxiety Alert!)

The Arrival of Vata Season (Anxiety Alert!)

As we begin this transition from Pitta Season to Vata Season, it’s important to note something that Ayurveda teaches.

“The Ayurvedic texts say that a disease can take root in the body only during the junctions between the seasons, when all nature is in flux. Because of the upheaval dominating these junctions, the body’s natural immunity becomes virtually defenseless against impending disease.” -Maya Tiwari

Decisions Ripple Through Flock of Birds Like a Wave

irds of a feather flock together, but perhaps not in the way we thought. An analysis of flocking starlings suggests the decision to turn spreads through the birds like a rippling wave, rather than diffusing through the group like a gas. Current theories hold that flocking animals like starlings attempt to stay a certain distance apart at all times. Any decision to turn would therefore spread slowly through the group in multiple directions, like a gas in a box.

Threatening Whales and Planet, US Opens Up Offshore Oil Exploration

The Obama administration gave the greenlight for fossil fuel companies to begin exploring for oil in the waters off the east coast of the U.S., a move said to have a dire consequences for marine life in the short term and on our global climate for years to come. Environmentalists are decrying the decision by the Department of the Interior to allow oil companies to use sonic canons to map the ocean floor, saying the explosive blasts threaten to kill or injure tens of thousands of marine mammals—including endangered right whales—and devastate coastal communities who depend on tourism, fishing, and coastal recreation. The seismic blasting, which can reach over 250 decibels, causes hearing loss in marine mammals, disturbs essential behaviors such as feeding and breeding over vast distances, and can mask communications between individual whales and dolphins.
