Krishnamurti was against the use of any drugs, what do you think he would have thought about Eboka?
Thanks!

Hi Nick,

I think you are right about the TV trying to help me but not in the way you think J

Krisnamurti argued that we should not accept anybody’s beliefs etc. That we should find out things for ourselves and hence I have lived my life by this dictum: What is, is what is not. So I know you will understand that while I am happy to be challenged by your views there is no way I am going to depart from a path I have spent a life time finding, which has transformed my life remarkably, simply because you may consider it a folly of sorts.

One of the major stumbling blocks I went through was to let go of the simplistic catholic teachings that encouraged me to accept how things were and to seek peace of mind through a simple connection to Christ, along a few guidelines which generally played on guilt that I should be grateful for what I had. THANKS BE TO GOD I GOT RID OF THAT CROCK OF SHIT IN MY LIFE! Hence, I was very excited when I didn’t find Krisnamurti – I found myself!

So when I read what you write it reminds me of the religious teachings, Catholic included, that close the doors to many other possibilities based on the idea that it is right. Because you have not experienced something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Think of me as spiritually immature if you wish but I am, in my opinion, a very, very blessed man. In the words of Karma, I have watched my Karma from this life burn and leave me and also Karma from my past life which I have relived through eboga. I am measurably a far different man whose experience of life is utterly transformed. I am someone who feels in a way I have not since I was a child.

So forgive me if I chose to stick to the path I am on. If I were to take your advice I would only have myself to blame.

You clearly do not subscribe to the view that life is for developing the soul through the experiences we have and need to resolve and understand. I do and this is fundamental to my experience.

A question: why is the idea that we have a path and work to do on that path to grow our own souls so alien to you? I am asking the question for the gut response and not the intellectual one. Is it something to do with your own catholic upbringing?

I very much believe that when we clear the ego we move onwards spiritually and so I guess I would have to say that I find your views possibly dangerous as they discourage the kind of work that can bring results. If someone has the choice to do the work with a strong chance to move towards inner peace, is it right to encourage them to seek a simple answer that quite possibly will keep them in their shit for a lifetime? I say this because the simple spiritual answers didn’t work for me or for many others. YET, the answers themselves are always simple. THAT is the point of simplicity I subscribe to and illustrates my point that: yes it is simple but yes it is not that simple. It actually doesn’t matter what system you use as long as you get where you are going…a car, a plane, a train, a bicycle….

Where I disagree:

1. “Whether you’re experiencing a lot of source, or not, you’ve no real way to know this, because an undifferentiated field can’t be known with the mind, there’s nothing to relate it to.”

I think souls are spiritually differentiated and we experience the spiritual realms via our soul, i.e. “NO MIND”, as interconnected spiritual phenomena.

2. “The only “spiritual helper” I’ve encountered on either iboga or ayahuasca is myself.”

Not my personal experience but it is the experience of many. In my experiences with eboga I am continually (these days with a cleaner ego) surrounded and helped by spirits and I see them as not I – yet we are one at a deeper level of spiritual insight. I feel a great love and respect for them. That is my experience. I see souls as separate entities that are also utterly connected.

That is what makes for the greatness of “GOD” as it can have so many separate parts that are at the same time “ONE.” Contrast this with planet earth that has so many individuals who are unable to work for the good of one another and most certainly do not act as ONE!

So is there any basis upon which we can discuss when our views appear to be so different? I guess we agree on some things:

1. “We are the source.”

Yes, if you consider what source has transformed into to be another form of source.

2. “Everything that can be related is relative.”

Yes, if by that you mean that everything is interconnected.

3. “With Osho we call it “no mind.” If you’ve got a lot of it mostly you’re happy despite what happens and people are attracted to you.”

Yes, I have a lot more of it now because of the work I have done with eboga. And because I have  recognised my humanity and how it works the doors are now opening to a higher state of mind. This is the work you seem to have difficulty accepting as necessary. I think this is the crux of your debate – you dislike any system of thought that leaves you with something to do.

4. “My personal experience is that spiritual endeavours are just there for the mind that’s having trouble dealing with just how simple life actually is. They don’t do anything because there’s no possibility you could ever be anything other than 100% who you are.”

Yes, and through the work we learn this but first we need to learn the reasons behind the blockage and in doing so the blockage falls away and we grow spiritually to be a differentiated soul that fully participates in the whole which then makes the whole greater: GOD GROWS.

Conclusion: Perhaps we are talking about two ends of the same stick?

I have a hard time understanding why you have a problem with a healing system based on eboga that consists of understanding how the ego works and the spiritual happenings that take place on the way towards healing the soul and ego, IF, in the end it works and leads to a state of “NO MIND” as you call it. I find an understanding of the ego extremely useful as I can use that understanding to progress much more quickly and let go of what I used along the way.

It reminds me of the story of 2 Buddhist monks crossing a stream. A woman needed help and one of the monks carried her across. After walking some way the other who was irritated by this said: “You are unclean. You touched that woman!” He replied: “I left that woman behind a long time ago but you are still carrying her.”

Love & Light,

Lee

P.S. Thanks for the spiritual sojourn!

there is no unifying field theory. the universe IS a unified field. it
doesn’t need a theory in order to be. The occasional desire that rises in
humans to create unifying field theories is merely the field having fun with
itself. There is nothing outside of the field to even call it a field.

we are the source, man. Everything that can be related is relative. Whether
you’re experiencing a lot of source, or not, you’ve no real way to know
this, because an undifferentiated field can’t be known with the mind,
there’s nothing to relate it to. For sure, you can TRY and look at the
source or something.

With Osho we call it “no mind.” If you’ve got a lot of it mostly you’re
happy despite what happens and people are attracted to you.

My personal experience is that spiritual endeavours are just there for the
mind that’s having trouble dealing with just how simple life actually is.
They don’t do anything because there’s no possibility you could ever be
anything other than 100% who you are. Of course, we all of us, certainly me,
regularly experience an intense desire to challenge this.

Personally, I feel gratitude, for sure, even though my own iboga initiation
in the Cameroun was a pretty crazy and haphazard affair. And the only
”spiritual helper” I’ve encountered on either iboga or ayahuasca is myself.
I’ve had some unbelievably brutal and unbelievably blissful experiences but
they’ve all seemed to be just me talking to me. That was my experience.

Tim Leary effected though his promotion of LSD the way millions of

people think.  Maybe even tens of millions, maybe more.  How do
you
discredit that?

BBC: “Timothy Leary, the counter-culture guru of the Sixties, who
urged his generation to “tune in, turn on, drop out” informed on
friends and helpers in order to get out of jail early.”

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/380815.stm

I saw his actions as being self-involved, publicity-seeking, and
irresponsible overall. I wish that LSD had not received the
publicity he gave it, although one could argue that the way LSD was
publicised was due to the gestalt of the times, and would have
happened anyway.

Hi Lee,

I don’t consider what you’re doing to be folly. I just put my energy out, that’s all.

One of the major stumbling blocks I went through was to let go of the simplistic catholic teachings that encouraged me to accept how things were and to seek peace of mind through a simple connection to Christ, along a few guidelines which generally played on guilt that I should be grateful for what I had.

Well, I’m anglo-iranian but was brought up good old C of E protestant.

I very much believe that when we clear the ego we move onwards spiritually and so I guess I would have to say that I find your views possibly dangerous as they discourage the kind of work that can bring results.

It actually doesn’t matter what system you use as long as you get where you are going…a car, a plane, a train, a bicycle….

It’s a good point. I do training at the Humaniversity in Holland where they are constantly battling to keep people moving towards more feeling when their mind is attracted to saying “Everything is alright as it is.” There’s no easy way out of the position. It’s just part of the whole drama of existence. Existence grows you, what to do?

Where I disagree:

1. “Whether you’re experiencing a lot of source, or not, you’ve no real way to know this, because an undifferentiated field can’t be known with the mind, there’s nothing to relate it to.”

I think souls are spiritually differentiated and we experience the spiritual realms via our soul, i.e. “NO MIND”, as interconnected spiritual phenomena.

I’m not creating the distinction soul/not soul, just pointing toward what is existential true – (hideous word I know, existential! Makes things sound complicated) What is beyond all distinctions?

Whilst you are relating to the world from the perspective Ego/not ego (I/not I) then therapy is easy because it makes total sense to “improve yourself”. With the onset of a different perspective so the challenges get stronger because there is always the option to deal with the existential truth that nothing changes, as that is also your experienced reality. You also can’t play small any longer, you can’t hide behind the facade of “little me”, this little being in a vast sea, because there is also the awareness that you experientially are the vast sea. Life for the mind gets harder because it is constantly confronted with two opposing perspectives. I read what you write about spirituality and souls etc and part of me longs to be going back to such a singular perspective. But the truth is that it’s no longer my reality. I don’t have a choice to take a spiritual path because I already know there’s nowhere it could possibly lead to. Frankly, it’s a fucking drag half the time, but that’s how things are for me.

2. “The only “spiritual helper” I’ve encountered on either iboga or ayahuasca is myself.”

Not my personal experience but it is the experience of many. In my experiences with eboga I am continually (these days with a cleaner ego) surrounded and helped by spirits and I see them as not I – yet we are one at a deeper level of spiritual insight. I feel a great love and respect for them. That is my experience. I see souls as separate entities that are also utterly connected.

That is what makes for the greatness of “GOD” as it can have so many separate parts that are at the same time “ONE.” Contrast this with planet earth that has so many individuals who are unable to work for the good of one another and most certainly do not act as ONE!

So is there any basis upon which we can discuss when our views appear to be so different? I guess we agree on some things:

1. “We are the source.”

Yes, if you consider what source has transformed into to be another form of source.

2. “Everything that can be related is relative.”

Yes, if by that you mean that everything is interconnected.

3. “With Osho we call it “no mind.” If you’ve got a lot of it mostly you’re happy despite what happens and people are attracted to you.”

Yes, I have a lot more of it now because of the work I have done with eboga. And because I have  recognised my humanity and how it works the doors are now opening to a higher state of mind. This is the work you seem to have difficulty accepting as necessary. I think this is the crux of your debate – you dislike any system of thought that leaves you with something to do.

4. “My personal experience is that spiritual endeavours are just there for the mind that’s having trouble dealing with just how simple life actually is. They don’t do anything because there’s no possibility you could ever be anything other than 100% who you are.”

Yes, and through the work we learn this but first we need to learn the reasons behind the blockage and in doing so the blockage falls away and we grow spiritually to be a differentiated soul that fully participates in the whole which then makes the whole greater: GOD GROWS.

Conclusion: Perhaps we are talking about two ends of the same stick?

I have a hard time understanding why you have a problem with a healing system based on eboga that consists of understanding how the ego works and the spiritual happenings that take place on the way towards healing the soul and ego, IF, in the end it works and leads to a state of “NO MIND” as you call it. I find an understanding of the ego extremely useful as I can use that understanding to progress much more quickly and let go of what I used along the way.

It reminds me of the story of 2 Buddhist monks crossing a stream. A woman needed help and one of the monks carried her across. After walking some way the other who was irritated by this said: “You are unclean. You touched that woman!” He replied: “I left that woman behind a long time ago but you are still carrying her.”

there is no unifying field theory. the universe IS a unified field. it
doesn’t need a theory in order to be. The occasional desire that rises in
humans to create unifying field theories is merely the field having fun with
itself. There is nothing outside of the field to even call it a field.

we are the source, man. Everything that can be related is relative. Whether
you’re experiencing a lot of source, or not, you’ve no real way to know
this, because an undifferentiated field can’t be known with the mind,
there’s nothing to relate it to. For sure, you can TRY and look at the
source or something.

They don’t do anything because there’s no possibility you could ever be

Personally, I feel gratitude, for sure, even though my own iboga initiation
in the Cameroun was a pretty crazy and haphazard affair. And the only
“spiritual helper” I’ve encountered on either iboga or ayahuasca is myself.
I’ve had some unbelievably brutal and unbelievably blissful experiences but
they’ve all seemed to be just me talking to me. That was my experience.

Objet : RE: [Ibogaine] Belief Systems: The Path of Eboga – Att. Nick

Hi Nick,

I think you are right about the TV trying to help me but not in the way you think J

Krisnamurti argued that we should not accept anybody’s beliefs etc. That we should find out things for ourselves and hence I have lived my life by this dictum: What is, is what is not. So I know you will understand that while I am happy to be challenged by your views there is no way I am going to depart from a path I have spent a life time finding, which has transformed my life remarkably, simply because you may consider it a folly of sorts.

One of the major stumbling blocks I went through was to let go of the simplistic catholic teachings that encouraged me to accept how things were and to seek peace of mind through a simple connection to Christ, along a few guidelines which generally played on guilt that I should be grateful for what I had. THANKS BE TO GOD I GOT RID OF THAT CROCK OF SHIT IN MY LIFE! Hence, I was very excited when I didn’t find Krisnamurti – I found myself!

So when I read what you write it reminds me of the religious teachings, Catholic included, that close the doors to many other possibilities based on the idea that it is right. Because you have not experienced something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Think of me as spiritually immature if you wish but I am, in my opinion, a very, very blessed man. In the words of Karma, I have watched my Karma from this life burn and leave me and also Karma from my past life which I have relived through eboga. I am measurably a far different man whose experience of life is utterly transformed. I am someone who feels in a way I have not since I was a child.

So forgive me if I chose to stick to the path I am on. If I were to take your advice I would only have myself to blame.

You clearly do not subscribe to the view that life is for developing the soul through the experiences we have and need to resolve and understand. I do and this is fundamental to my experience.

A question: why is the idea that we have a path and work to do on that path to grow our own souls so alien to you? I am asking the question for the gut response and not the intellectual one. Is it something to do with your own catholic upbringing?

I very much believe that when we clear the ego we move onwards spiritually and so I guess I would have to say that I find your views possibly dangerous as they discourage the kind of work that can bring results. If someone has the choice to do the work with a strong chance to move towards inner peace, is it right to encourage them to seek a simple answer that quite possibly will keep them in their shit for a lifetime? I say this because the simple spiritual answers didn’t work for me or for many others. YET, the answers themselves are always simple. THAT is the point of simplicity I subscribe to and illustrates my point that: yes it is simple but yes it is not that simple. It actually doesn’t matter what system you use as long as you get where you are going…a car, a plane, a train, a bicycle….

Hey Man

TV was never banned in South Africa.  The government of the time was just too short-sighted to create the facilities to broadcast.

I was a kid in high school when the first broadcasts took place in South Africa, and the reason given at the time was that TV would be too expensive to do.  That at a time when our neighbour, Zimbabwe had it for many years. Now if you look at Zimbabwe these days and compare with SA – what a difference! (not that I think TV had anything to do with the current wave of greed, nepotism and the likes).

I agree about the then SA policies being wrong, but thought I had to set the picture right.  A lot of atrocities apparently happened, but TV was not one of them (to my knowledge the cost of setting up was the key issue, and my dad was in the know, being a member of the “Broederbond”, loosely translated as “band of brothers”, with the sole purpose of putting white afrikaner men in key positions to further the cause of apartheid.)  In the early 80’s the Broederbond seemed to undergo a metamorphosis and the accent fell on cultural issues rather than skin colour issues.

However, I hope I have not offended in any way, and wish all you guys (including the female parts) a very good 2005.

To which I reply, with all the love I can send, I swear- are you really going to use this to bolster some kind of argument that tv causes violence using South Africa’s banning of tv “until 1975” and their subsequent “low” white violence rates? LOL! That is one of the funniest things I’ve read in a while.
I never thought South Africa’s apartied policies could be considered funny in any way, but this “study” has certainly come very, very close to making South Africa’s apartied funny, in that I want to know: if Apartied is considered “violence,” and I myself do consider it so, and if tv was banned there, why the apartied?
Better, I want to know if the study’s authors released this with a straight face.
;-))
Also, I did see just tonight as a matter of fact, something on History Channel about the fact that during the Korean war military researchers decided that not enough US troops were “shooting to kill,” and that was because they were being trained on paper targets instead of life-like dummies that looked more human. With that in mind, I could see how playing videogames where we shoot life-like people could be incorporated into that same theory, that by training to do so it might increase shoot-to-kill rates in real battle. But I still doubt that it’s the videogames making kids violent, or that kids are more violent today than in days or yore. There are all sorts of horror stories, not to mention all out wars, too many of both throughout history for me to believe it. Sorry.

Hi Preston !
You ask a very pertinent question :
< are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?) and how media
and video games can influence our society regarding violence
IMO yes ,the facts :
.Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired psychiartrist from West Point, and he
spend most of his life studing the psycology behind the killing.
http://www.killology.com/
The military during the first war discover that only about 15 % where
actualy using their arms with intention to kill. It’s in fact very difficult
to take one human being life, at least it was. During the second war about
44 % where using their weapons with the intention to kill. During the Irak
war of 1991 , 90 % of the soldiers where using theirs weapons to kill. That
the infortunate progression.

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South

You will find interesting results of several studies showing the constant
relation between media conditioning violences and society.
The average child watches 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on
television before finishing elementary school.

Honestly, what do we expect ? Peaceful nations where random act kindness is
a rule 🙂
OR something like this….
“A female in the United States is three times more likely to be murdered
than a female in Canada, five times more likely to be murdered than a female
in Germany, and eight times more likely to be murdered than a female in
England and Wales. The U.S. female homicide victimization rate is five times
that of all the other high-income countries combined. The firearm homicide
rate for U.S. females is 11 times higher than that in the other high-income
countries.

hallucinogens? Like that it was/is the next evolutionary step, that we’re
basically linking up cyberly to others and their brains, and that soon
wetware will be a reality too? Or something along these lines? (Trying to
bring this back on-topic.)
;-))

Peace and love,

Reply-To: ibogaine@mindvox.com

Thank you for your E-mail Vector I was just releasing my cave man anger 🙂
You are right I am getting older 🙂 even worst I am getting ancient…

I remember reading an ancient Grec philosopher complaining of the change
happening in the new generation and missing the good all time 🙂  I love
and use the I-ching ( the Book of Change )and they allways refers to an
ancient time when the world was perfect. Probably refering at more than
6.000 years BC when the first village where created around a wellspring.I
had the luck to live one year in the bush in Madagascar in small villages
like the ones  described in the “book of change ”
. This was actualy the best year of my life.No tv , no radio, no news, no
noise, no shoes, no stress but a lot of friendship and laughter 🙂

Here some sentences from the I-Ching

About creativity :
Creativity comes from awakening and directing men’s higher natures, which
originate in the primal depths of the uni- verse and are appointed by
Heaven.

About perseverance
One should act in consonance with the way of heaven and earth, which is
enduring and eternal. The superior man perseveres long in his course, adapts
to the times, but remains firm in his direction and correct in his goals.

Advice ( are they talking about addiction and recovery  !/? )
Great effort is required to arrest decay and restore vigor. One must
exercise proper deliberation, plan carefully before making a move, and be
alert in guarding against relapse following a renaissance.

Hermit
The hermit doesn’t sleep at night, in love with the blue of the vacant moon.
The cool of the breeze that rustles the trees rustles him too.
God Bless and a very happy new year !!
Francis

Francis I love reading your messages and most of the time I don’t have
any kind of reply to what you say but I enjoy reading it. In this one
message I think I can offer you a simple answer that I’m sure your son
with his vibrating razor will agree with. Maybe your just getting
older, older not old! 🙂 If you ever had the chance to talk to your dad
when you were growing up I’m sure he would have had the same thoughts
about the age you were growing up in and how things had change.

I don’t think anyone knows where they’re going, we are always going
there faster and everything keeps getting worse. That’s the same as
it’s ever been and some of it worries me and makes me think there will
be no future world, but cellphones, wireless and vibrating appliances
have never been anything I have thought about. Didn’t we always have
those? 😉

Happy new year!

Francis, you make some very good points in that post. There have been

alot of cultural changes since the 50’s when TV got into households
everywhere. That has to be taken into consideration when looking at
this. Sure TV has made a difference in the violence quota but it’s

Date: December 31, 2004 at 9:47:48 AM EST
To: ibogaine@mindvox.com
Reply-To: ibogaine@mindvox.com

Hi Nick,

I think you are right about the TV trying to help me but not in the way you think J

Krisnamurti argued that we should not accept anybody’s beliefs etc. That we should find out things for ourselves and hence I have lived my life by this dictum: What is, is what is not. So I know you will understand that while I am happy to be challenged by your views there is no way I am going to depart from a path I have spent a life time finding, which has transformed my life remarkably, simply because you may consider it a folly of sorts.

One of the major stumbling blocks I went through was to let go of the simplistic catholic teachings that encouraged me to accept how things were and to seek peace of mind through a simple connection to Christ, along a few guidelines which generally played on guilt that I should be grateful for what I had. THANKS BE TO GOD I GOT RID OF THAT CROCK OF SHIT IN MY LIFE! Hence, I was very excited when I didn’t find Krisnamurti – I found myself!

So when I read what you write it reminds me of the religious teachings, Catholic included, that close the doors to many other possibilities based on the idea that it is right. Because you have not experienced something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Think of me as spiritually immature if you wish but I am, in my opinion, a very, very blessed man. In the words of Karma, I have watched my Karma from this life burn and leave me and also Karma from my past life which I have relived through eboga. I am measurably a far different man whose experience of life is utterly transformed. I am someone who feels in a way I have not since I was a child.

So forgive me if I chose to stick to the path I am on. If I were to take your advice I would only have myself to blame.

You clearly do not subscribe to the view that life is for developing the soul through the experiences we have and need to resolve and understand. I do and this is fundamental to my experience.

A question: why is the idea that we have a path and work to do on that path to grow our own souls so alien to you? I am asking the question for the gut response and not the intellectual one. Is it something to do with your own catholic upbringing?

I very much believe that when we clear the ego we move onwards spiritually and so I guess I would have to say that I find your views possibly dangerous as they discourage the kind of work that can bring results. If someone has the choice to do the work with a strong chance to move towards inner peace, is it right to encourage them to seek a simple answer that quite possibly will keep them in their shit for a lifetime? I say this because the simple spiritual answers didn’t work for me or for many others. YET, the answers themselves are always simple. THAT is the point of simplicity I subscribe to and illustrates my point that: yes it is simple but yes it is not that simple. It actually doesn’t matter what system you use as long as you get where you are going…a car, a plane, a train, a bicycle….

Where I disagree:

1. “Whether you’re experiencing a lot of source, or not, you’ve no real way to know this, because an undifferentiated field can’t be known with the mind, there’s nothing to relate it to.”

I think souls are spiritually differentiated and we experience the spiritual realms via our soul, i.e. “NO MIND”, as interconnected spiritual phenomena.

2. “The only “spiritual helper” I’ve encountered on either iboga or ayahuasca is myself.”

Not my personal experience but it is the experience of many. In my experiences with eboga I am continually (these days with a cleaner ego) surrounded and helped by spirits and I see them as not I – yet we are one at a deeper level of spiritual insight. I feel a great love and respect for them. That is my experience. I see souls as separate entities that are also utterly connected.

That is what makes for the greatness of “GOD” as it can have so many separate parts that are at the same time “ONE.” Contrast this with planet earth that has so many individuals who are unable to work for the good of one another and most certainly do not act as ONE!

So is there any basis upon which we can discuss when our views appear to be so different? I guess we agree on some things:

1. “We are the source.”

Yes, if you consider what source has transformed into to be another form of source.

2. “Everything that can be related is relative.”

Yes, if by that you mean that everything is interconnected.

3. “With Osho we call it “no mind.” If you’ve got a lot of it mostly you’re happy despite what happens and people are attracted to you.”

Yes, I have a lot more of it now because of the work I have done with eboga. And because I have  recognised my humanity and how it works the doors are now opening to a higher state of mind. This is the work you seem to have difficulty accepting as necessary. I think this is the crux of your debate – you dislike any system of thought that leaves you with something to do.

4. “My personal experience is that spiritual endeavours are just there for the mind that’s having trouble dealing with just how simple life actually is. They don’t do anything because there’s no possibility you could ever be anything other than 100% who you are.”

Yes, and through the work we learn this but first we need to learn the reasons behind the blockage and in doing so the blockage falls away and we grow spiritually to be a differentiated soul that fully participates in the whole which then makes the whole greater: GOD GROWS.

Conclusion: Perhaps we are talking about two ends of the same stick?

I have a hard time understanding why you have a problem with a healing system based on eboga that consists of understanding how the ego works and the spiritual happenings that take place on the way towards healing the soul and ego, IF, in the end it works and leads to a state of “NO MIND” as you call it. I find an understanding of the ego extremely useful as I can use that understanding to progress much more quickly and let go of what I used along the way.

It reminds me of the story of 2 Buddhist monks crossing a stream. A woman needed help and one of the monks carried her across. After walking some way the other who was irritated by this said: “You are unclean. You touched that woman!” He replied: “I left that woman behind a long time ago but you are still carrying her.”

Love & Light,

Lee

P.S. Thanks for the spiritual sojourn!

there is no unifying field theory. the universe IS a unified field. it
doesn’t need a theory in order to be. The occasional desire that rises in
humans to create unifying field theories is merely the field having fun with
itself. There is nothing outside of the field to even call it a field.

we are the source, man. Everything that can be related is relative. Whether
you’re experiencing a lot of source, or not, you’ve no real way to know
this, because an undifferentiated field can’t be known with the mind,
there’s nothing to relate it to. For sure, you can TRY and look at the
source or something.

With Osho we call it “no mind.” If you’ve got a lot of it mostly you’re
happy despite what happens and people are attracted to you.

My personal experience is that spiritual endeavours are just there for the
mind that’s having trouble dealing with just how simple life actually is.
They don’t do anything because there’s no possibility you could ever be
anything other than 100% who you are. Of course, we all of us, certainly me,
regularly experience an intense desire to challenge this.

Personally, I feel gratitude, for sure, even though my own iboga initiation
in the Cameroun was a pretty crazy and haphazard affair. And the only
“spiritual helper” I’ve encountered on either iboga or ayahuasca is myself.
I’ve had some unbelievably brutal and unbelievably blissful experiences but
they’ve all seemed to be just me talking to me. That was my experience.

with love

Dave,

You are entitled to do or say (or not) anything you like.Much of what you say I agree with, I don’t care for commercial stuff, advertising, SPAM, junk mail, knock-knock…

My intent with ATCO is to give people opportunity where there is none. There is absolutely nothing I can do to save the world from consumption and consumerism or anything else by not buying ATCO, it won’t change a thing, those things will all happen anyway if they are to happen, but I can do something by buying it. What I can do is provide opportunity, perhaps collectively we can do something major with this knowledge, perhaps someone with financial means like Marc Emory can fork over a million or two to buy ATCO stock, and in a few years, have enough for IBOGAINE CLINICAL TRIALS, or whatever. I have my own ideas with what I do I don’t care to discuss on a public list. It isn’t greed on my partI do however need to take care of myself and am disabled, I trade stocks, I looked for “THE BIG ONE” and I found ATCO and yes, I am certain.

ATCO is very likely to return hundreds to thousands of times its value. If you want or don’t want that is fine, but I really do mean, this is “THE BIG ONE”, the stock of the decade… I put a lot of time and effort to find this, this was years in the. If people need money, organizations need money, whatever they invest should be returned many times over (10, 100X 1000X… in time of course).

It already started to happen, I look at as an opportunity, a great opportunity for a person to get themselves together, maybe pay for medical care they need, maybe a car or house, put the kids through college, retire, do clinical trials on ibogaine, support the legalization of marijuana and other drugs with Billions of dollars from ATCO. I would love to see ATCO a cult stock, to fight the things that are wrong in the world. I see the good, a chance to make a different future for the world, or at least a much larger piece of the world that I can touch. The stock is real, the products are real, this isn’t a scam, the contracts are happening, I know all the details, no, nothing is going to go wrong… yes you can bet the farm on it – but it is your money so you need to read for yourself,  atcsd.com is the company web site woodynorris.com is the founders site.  Make no mistake, this is the stuff that can make dreams come true.

American Technology Forecasts over $4 Million in Revenues for Quarter Ending December 31, 2004
Wednesday December 29, 8:30 am ET

Company Also Reports Record Revenue for Fiscal 2004

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 29, 2004–American Technology Corporation (ATC) (Nasdaq:ATCO – News), an innovator of proprietary sound reproduction technologies, today forecast record quarterly revenues in excess of $4 million for the quarter ending December 31, 2004. The company also reported record revenues for its fiscal year 2004, ended September 30, 2004. Revenues for fiscal 2004 were $5.8 million compared to $1.3 million in fiscal 2003, an increase of 337%. The company’s Government/Force Protection Group and Business Group generated revenues of $4.8 million and $0.9 million, respectively, in the fiscal year.

The company reported a gross profit of $2.3 million for the fiscal year compared to a gross loss of $0.2 million for fiscal 2003. The company also reported a net loss of $6 million for fiscal 2004 reduced from a net loss of $8.2 million in fiscal 2003. Net loss attributable to common stockholders after deducting non-cash dividends on preferred stock was $(0.37) per share compared to $(0.67) per share last fiscal year.
MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY
“In fiscal 2004 we established the markets and organizational foundation to position our proprietary sound reproduction technologies at the forefront of audio industry innovation with products primed to produce rapid revenue growth,” said Elwood G. Norris, chairman of American Technology Corporation. “Our LRAD(TM) devices are becoming The Sound of Force Protection(TM) for an increasing number of military, government and commercial applications. And, after several years of development, we believe our HSSŽ technology is ready to realize its commercial promise as the most revolutionary audio development since the invention of the loudspeaker.”
“This year, we augmented the ATC team, successfully introduced new products, focused our sales and marketing efforts, outsourced manufacturing to enable rapid response to anticipated volume orders, and achieved record revenues,” remarked Kalani Jones, president and COO of ATC. “We have made substantial progress on our digital signage business programs and we are pleased with the responses we are receiving from our HSS Gen III deliveries to digital signage customers in Asia, Europe and North America. As we have previously stated, the structure of the larger digital signage programs in which we are engaged are complex, involve several partners, and generally require in-depth trials through multiple test installations. With the digital signage market expected to grow to over $5 billion in the next three to four years, we believe HSS is well positioned to be the audio solution for a number of major near-term programs. The programs contemplated each have the potential to generate $1 – $14 million dollars in revenue to ATC over the next three to twenty-four months.”
Commenting on the increasing success of ATC’s proprietary LRAD devices, Carl Gruenler, vice president of ATC’s government and force protection systems, said, “This year, through intense marketing efforts, successful product deployments in Operation Iraqi Freedom and the expansion of our product line to address the challenge of protecting infrastructure, our LRAD made great progress in becoming The Sound of Force Protection(TM). LRAD systems are currently being deployed in maritime, checkpoint, vehicular, airborne, and integrated system applications by the U.S. Army (click http://www.atcsd.com/PressReleases/12_15_04A.html to read our December 15 press release announcing our $4.9 million U.S. Army order), U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and other agencies for waterside force protection, area denial, crowd control, clearing buildings, and psychological ops missions. Operational feedback from deployment in Iraq and other parts of the world has been highly favorable. LRAD also supports applications for the Department of Homeland Security, law enforcement agencies and customers who need to protect critical high-value infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, tunnels, dams, power plants, pipelines, airports, seaports, communications towers, and oil platforms.”
Gruenler continued, “We believe we are becoming the pre-eminent acoustic provider for force and commercial asset protection, and next generation intelligibility sound systems by providing governments, agencies, and companies with our LRAD, NeoPlanarŽ, and SoundCluster(TM) technologies. Based on market response, product acceptance, and increasing business opportunities, we expect continued growth in fiscal 2005. Our early research indicates a global market potential of well over $1 billion for hailing and warning systems, acoustic non-lethal weapons capabilities, indoor and outdoor public address/emergency response systems and custom engineered sound solutions for acoustic challenges for both government and industry, both at home and abroad. We intend to be a major force in these emerging markets this year and for years to come.”
Commenting on ATC’s financial resources, Kalani Jones said, “The $25 million committed equity financing facility (CEFF) from Kingsbridge Capital announced December 15 (click http://www.atcsd.com/PressReleases/12_15_04B.html for the release), and the recent closing of a $2 million two-year note financing, provide ATC the financial flexibility to accept and fill further expected large military and commercial LRAD orders.”
Jones concluded, “We are very excited about our business and technology prospects in the coming year. In fiscal 2005, we will continue to build on the foundation of 2004 with our aggressive strategy of Shaping the Future of SoundŽ.”

I don’t knowingly buy General Electric Products, and would never invest

If I don’t speak my truth, then, what is truth?

something to hide under the covers?

like some gilded phallic rod? stroke-able only in private?

something to be ashamed of… something to be afraid of?

or something the agenda wants to shove under the carpet?

I’m so excited to be bombarded by targeted sound enticing me to
consume, more.

Walking by a soda machine and having fizzing soda and crackling ice
erupt from within my head. I just can’t fucking wait. There’s already a
storm brewing between my ears. Like I need more voices in my head.

And soon to come… iris recognition sensors that access my credit card
statements and customize in real-time a special commercial message for
me: “Buy some more audio equipment. Or a new FireWire Drive, you are
one block from the Apple store and RAM is on sale today. Or… “There’s
a great Taqueria right around the corner…” Like I need to be
encouraged to eat taco. Mas queso, por favor. Maybe if I blink 3 times
my order will be ready when I reach the counter? right down to the
salsa fresca and 16oz Horchata?

I’m so thrilled to know if I choose to voice my opinion in peaceful
protest that the goon squad can scatter my rights with blood curdling
sound that can destroy my hearing if I don’t submit to the sonic cattle
prod within seconds. Or perhaps at a slightly different frequency my
bowels will loosen beyond control and I’ll be running from the city
park in search of a roll of paper, thoughts of peace and freedom turned
fast into relief of abdominal cramps.

I just can’t fucking wait.

Subject: [Ibogaine] early Dole/Nyswander paper
Date: December 31, 2004 at 2:16:15 AM EST
To: ibogaine@mindvox.com
Reply-To: ibogaine@mindvox.com

Dear list,

More than twenty years ago when I was performing literature searches on
ibogaine and opioid and stimulant pharmacology to support proposed ibogaine patents
I obtained a copy of Heroin Addiction – A Metabolic Disease by Drs. Dole and
Nyswander, the developers of methadone maintenance therapy.  The paper
remained in my files unvisited for twenty years when I rediscovered it and provided
it in a brochure presented at the American Association for the Treatment of
Opioid Dependence (AATOD) conference held in Washington, DC in April 2003
<http://www.doraweiner.org/contents.html>.  Most of the papers except for the
Dole/Nyswander paper were presented in electronic form on the Dora Weiner Foundation
web page following the conference.  There was no PDF file of the Dole paper
available and I did not have the knowledge or time to provide such then.   It is
an amazingly original paper and encouraging to any methadone patient who
might read it and to any ibogaine researcher who wished to be accorded the respect
in the ibogaine world that Dole was accorded in the methadone world.

All that being said, Heroin Addiction – A Metabolic Disease is available as a
downloadable PDF file from http://www.doraweiner.org/dole_nyswander_1967.pdf

Francis I love reading your messages and most of the time I don’t have
any kind of reply to what you say but I enjoy reading it. In this one
message I think I can offer you a simple answer that I’m sure your son
with his vibrating razor will agree with. Maybe your just getting
older, older not old! 🙂 If you ever had the chance to talk to your dad
when you were growing up I’m sure he would have had the same thoughts
about the age you were growing up in and how things had change.

I don’t think anyone knows where they’re going, we are always going
there faster and everything keeps getting worse. That’s the same as
it’s ever been and some of it worries me and makes me think there will
be no future world, but cellphones, wireless and vibrating appliances
have never been anything I have thought about. Didn’t we always have
those? 😉

Happy new year!

Hi Nick,

I wrote a considered reply but it got gobbled up when
I hit send on my TV
internet connection back in Ireland. So I will keep
this one “brief.”

Hi Lee,

Aha! See even the telly is trying to help you out!

In the same way there is probably a unifying field
theory that
explains all phenomena in this dimension, I believe
there is also
a source from which all comes and through the power of
creation,
which you and jasen have alluded, much has been
created.

there is no unifying field theory. the universe IS a unified field. it
doesn’t need a theory in order to be. The occasional desire that rises in
humans to create unifying field theories is merely the field having fun with
itself. There is nothing outside of the field to even call it a field.

If we only look to the source we miss the nature of
what has derived
from the source, its meaning for us and its wonders.

we are the source, man. Everything that can be related is relative. Whether
you’re experiencing a lot of source, or not, you’ve no real way to know
this, because an undifferentiated field can’t be known with the mind,
there’s nothing to relate it to. For sure, you can TRY and look at the
source or something.

With Osho we call it “no mind.” If you’ve got a lot of it mostly you’re
happy despite what happens and people are attracted to you.

I personally fully embrace the physical as well as the
spiritual and work to
integrate both. I dont subscribe to a view that
enourages ignorance of one
or the other.

My personal experience is that spiritual endeavours are just there for the
mind that’s having trouble dealing with just how simple life actually is.
They don’t do anything because there’s no possibility you could ever be
anything other than 100% who you are. Of course, we all of us, certainly me,
regularly experience an intense desire to challenge this.

I have a question for you:

Who or what for you are the spiritual helpers who work
through the eboga
spirit and bring so much healing to so many? Should
they be ignored or is
a certain amount of gratiude in order?

Personally, I feel gratitude, for sure, even though my own iboga initiation
in the Cameroun was a pretty crazy and haphazard affair. And the only
“spiritual helper” I’ve encountered on either iboga or ayahuasca is myself.
I’ve had some unbelievably brutal and unbelievably blissful experiences but
they’ve all seemed to be just me talking to me. That was my experience.

with love

Nick

A Happy New Year to you

Lee

Forgive me for saying this (100% respect intended)

Lee,

The truth is very simple when it hits. It is
insanely simple. I was in the

Hi Randy !!
I absolutly agree man. I spent many years in Swiss and in each household they have weapons, assault weapons.
The crime rate is very low. The cultural background is very different there. and you right, they have a good medical care, and the community is taking care of the weak and poor.That make a big difference.Regarding pot :the past few years, you could grow your own pot , sell or smoke it.
They  changed the law this year;

<snip>An important factor influencing the changing position was a paper of the Swiss Teachers’ Association. They warned that the situation in the schools had changed dramatically due to the increasing marihuana smoking of the students. Teaching became increasingly more difficult because of behaviour problems. This Teachers’ Association, which some years before had welcomed the proposal for the new law, have now realised the sorrowing consequences of false tolerance and warned that schools are not detoxification and recovery facilities for dizzy students.<snip>

Heroin Assisted Treatment (HAT) is still going on in Switzerland with about 1200 addicts in these, mostly, lifelong programs. The number of patients has stabilised. The average age of the patients involved is 38.5; the oldest patient is 55 years old.
There are facilities for heroin assisted treatment in 6 cities all over the country. Additionally 18 000 addicts are in methadone programs.
The program is working with very good results.

Regarding TV and violence  :a picture is worth a1000….

The crime rate start to kick about 10 to fifteen years after the introduction of TV . In the States, in Canada and in South Africa.Not immediatly….
Now for the medical views on TV and violence :

JAMA, June 10, 1992–Vol 267, No. 22

Preston, I’m glad you brought that up about South Africa because I was reading that report and thought the same thing. They didn’t allow TV or a lot of stuff until 75 including voting and a reasonable way of life. Does anyone really think that the South African government really cared how many murders happened to innocent black people there? As for Canada having guns around the household with less violent crime that’s easy. They can smoke pot when they want to, have better medical care and the junkies can get Ibogaine when they need it and are smart enough to find it. What have they got to be pissed off about? I’ve got guns and I haven’t shot anybody for well over a week now. HeHe         Randy

The only ‘legal’ guns in Canada are licensed hunting
rifles (usually in rural areas), and those on the hips
of police officers.  Concealed weapons are strictly
not permitted, but it doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
There are shootings here too, just not on so massive
of a scale as in the US.  I believe this might be a
population/numbers type of thing, coupled with the
fact that personal handguns are NOT legal in urban
areas.  If they were- oh god, who knows what would be
going on.

In fact, there have been gruesome, weekly teenage male
stabbings here for months- think swarmings.  And one
of the worst serial killers of all time is from the
west coast of Canada- Robert Picton.  He murdered and
butchered many dozens of transient, unfortunate women,
and then fed them to his pet pig.  Fucking sick
asshole.

Canada is NOT exempt from violence- we just have fewer
people and fewer guns, that’s all.

That
make us different but not enemies .<

Yep, fully agreed. (Wish the prohibitionist minded folk and warmongering folk would understand that, that in the case of prohibitionism, I don’t descriminate against folk for NOT using drugs, so why should they descriminate against me for using drugs?)
And while I enjoy firing firearms, I don’t own one and don’t plan on owning one. I don’t like violence and am a self-described peaceknick- other than for my love of action flicks (movies) and action videogames. I’ve always figured the cyber/imaginary violence is much more of a valve for me than actual, real violence is and could be, in that while giving in to violent tendencies is cathartic in the short term, it usually, in my own experience, leads to further troubles and turmoils, so I do my best to avoid it in every real life situation possible, as well as promote a peaceful outlook on things in my writing.

They have to distille fear in our veins and
heart, that the game.<

I fully agree here, I think. I just think there are a variety of ways they do so, and in turn that no one has power over how I react- IF I REMEMBER THAT! Of course, most people are laboring under the brainwashing they’ve endured since birth and so are unable to see things as clearly as those of us who’ve tried illegal drugs say, so they are not as able to seperate reality from propaganda and lies say and are more susceptible to the manipulations than I am or you are for instance. Therefore “they” are more easily able to do the above, to instill fear in our veins and hearts.

Peace and love,

I will never agree on violence on TV because I hate violence personaly, and
I hate when medias try to manipulate me, to deshumanize me. Is that the

Julian, I agree with you that Ibogaine can and will help people to grow spiritually, and it will probably help with all kinds of mental road blocks, so to speak. The overwhelming fact is that it interrupts addiction and that is what everyone is concentrating on, (the squeaky wheel gets the oil and all that). I’d like to see Ibogaine available to anyone who feels the need to expand and explore themselves. First we have to see that all the facts, ALL THE FACTS, come out about the therapeutic values of Ibogaine, and that it is in no shape or form a party drug. How many of us have to do the Ibogaine illegally and see huge improvements in our life for the powers that be to pay attention? Obviously not enough yet. So onward through the fog. I’m very happy for you that you finally got to do the Ibogaine. Did you have any hallucinations that you would care to share with us? I need the reminder of why I feel so different today. Ibogaine is a miracle drug.          Randy

Hey Donna, from what I know about buprenorphine, subutex does not have naloxone in it like the suboxone does. As far as I know, it is very hard to get subutex. They put the naloxone in the suboxone as (of course) a measure of control so that addicts can’t inject it. When taken under the tongue the naloxone doesn’t make it into the blood stream, but when taken in other ways the naloxone will cause you to go into withdrawals. If you are really getting a script for subutex then you don’t have to worry about the naloxone I don’t believe. As for using while on suboxone, there was a period of time where I did it so I can give you some first hand experience. If you don’t wait around 12 – 24 hours after you take the suboxone before you do dope then you won’t feel the dope because the bup. in your brain will block it. If you don’t wait 12 – 15 hours after doing dope to take your suboxone then you can go into withdrawals because when the bup. enters your brain and finds somebody else in it’s home it will rip the dope out of the receptor and send you into withdrawals. So: for my particular metabolism it was:
At least 15 hours before you want to get high don’t do any bup. or you won’t feel it.
Wait at least 12 hours after you get high before you do the bup or withdrawals may ruin your day.
I imagine that this can change with different metabolisms and different kinds of dope (methadone lasts much longer in the body so the amount of time would be much longer)
The reason I am telling you this is not because I am encouraging you to go get high. I just remembered when I first went on suboxone, no one would tell me the dangers of using while taking bup. It really pissed me off because I believe in giving people all the info and letting them make their own decisions. After I found all this out I asked my prescribing Dr. if all that was true and he actually told me he didn’t know!!! The Dr. I have now has told me that it is true, but it is such a new drug they don’t know everything about it yet. So, I encourage you to look it up all over the net, call pharmacies, and other Dr’s to get information because I know when I did that I got lots of different answers. It was incredible. Can you talk openly with your prescribing Dr? One nice thing about bup is the fact that it makes getting high such a pain in the ass so any tiny spark of desire to use generally goes away. Well, be careful and make sure to get info from a certified Dr. before you do anything just to make sure everything will be okay. (insert disclaimer here)
Good Luck

They didn’t allow TV or a lot of stuff until 75 including voting and a reasonable way of life. Does anyone really think that the South African government really cared how many murders happened to innocent black people there? As for Canada having guns around the household with less violent crime that’s easy. They can smoke pot when they want to, have better medical care and the junkies can get Ibogaine when they need it and are smart enough to find it. What have they got to be pissed off about?

Dear preston,

Yes I agreed with you; computer games aren’t reason of violence. This is not my point.

I mentioned about visual pop culture. Always changing faces, shapes, etc.. and there is a TV or computer as a most important object of life.

Pop culture is originated legends. In the first contact with the pop culture; you think “yeah how nice, everything is new and bright. But when you go older with pop-culture; you understand that everything is same for thousands of years. This is normal. Every generation create their own popular culture or they think so… Behind the millions different colors of pop-culture there is just a few constant and they are never change.

(Did you heard about two books that wich is very important “morphology of legend” written by Viladimir Prop and “Principle of semiology” written by Ferdinand de Saussure)

But in the 21th. century popular culture is changing. It’s taking the place of understanding and emphaty. Killing languages of world and making them poor.

Do you want to live in a world that all around you is full of Coke, Mc Donalds, etc..

This system doesn’t link up to you “other people”.

“other peoples” are dying Mr. Peet. They are dying like flies.

Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid  (in

my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother  and I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from  the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping  bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

“Video games also have much to offer the military, said

Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old  boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired  a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games  available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon
S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South
Africa for the period 1945 to 1974, with the significant constant being
that
the South African government did not permit television broadcasting
until
1975. During this period, the … white homicide rate in the U. S. [and
Canada] increased by [over 90 percent, and] in South Africa, where
television was banned, the white homicide rate fell by 7.2 percent
during
the same period. However, following the introduction of TV in South
Africa,
by 1987, white homicides had increased by 130 percent.<

To which I reply, with all the love I can send, I swear- are you really
going to use this to bolster some kind of argument that tv causes
violence
using South Africa’s banning of tv “until 1975” and their subsequent
“low”
white violence rates? LOL! That is one of the funniest things I’ve read
in
a while.
I never thought South Africa’s apartied policies could be considered
funny in any way, but this “study” has certainly come very, very close
to
making South Africa’s apartied funny, in that I want to know: if
Apartied
is considered “violence,” and I myself do consider it so, and if tv was
banned there, why the apartied?
Better, I want to know if the study’s authors released this with a
straight face.
;-))
Also, I did see just tonight as a matter of fact, something on
History
Channel about the fact that during the Korean war military researchers
decided that not enough US troops were “shooting to kill,” and that was
because they were being trained on paper targets instead of life-like
dummies that looked more human. With that in mind, I could see how
playing
videogames where we shoot life-like people could be incorporated into
that
same theory, that by training to do so it might increase shoot-to-kill
rates in real battle. But I still doubt that it’s the videogames making
kids violent, or that kids are more violent today than in days or yore.
There are all sorts of horror stories, not to mention all out wars, too
many of both throughout history for me to believe it. Sorry.

Peace and love,

Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more
valid
(in

my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and
only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both
my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy
scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids
who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother
and
I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed
in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well
from
the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on
foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping
bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies
today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

“Video games also have much to offer the military, said

“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt.
Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the
clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide®
has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt.
Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent
argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these
killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to
trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old
boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not
fired
a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video
games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of
the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina
and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye
type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games
available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

Hi Preston
I just cliked on reply on the subject was already Mr. Preston, I apologize
and I think that as a writer  and  an important contribuitor two the drug
war you desserve all my respect anyway

Now for the violence , You reconize and will agree with me that training on
shooting on human target increase
the results ( quantity and quality )

For the violence in South Africa, I will agree with you that was not the
perfect esample . In fact the apartheid run from
1948-1994 and it ‘s only after the introduction to TV ( 1975 ) that the
crimes rates explode. This is the only country that banned Tv for so long .
Is it a coincidence ? Maybe, maybe not . We have only this example at the
level of a nation., Japanese, Canadians and Swiss are watching TV with the
hight contents of violence and have a lower murder rates than US.
So TV is not the roots of violence . It can be one of the road of violence
but cultural  beliefs or boundaries could make a difference.

I ‘ve seen an escalation in violence in  the cheap, trashy, violent
production that we are watching  on a daily base, and I ‘ve seen the same
escalation of violence in ours societies.( here and everywhere ) If it don’t
blead it don’t lead seem’s to be the moto of ours producers and pseudo
journalist working for corporate’s  outlet medias. More blood, we want more
blood seem’s to be  the cry of tthe viewers.  The medias and the videogame
producers create a virtual world of revenge ( exception : Divine
Journey ).This create an image of reality completely deformed for our youth.
This world is not owned by ” Jerrys Springers and fat producers of Hollywood
” and I hopes that commun sense will prevail at the end . Just commun
sense…. if that all.

I love these games.
Darn it, am I going to suddenly wake up a killer now?
Egad, I’m doomed…errr, no, that’s not right, haven’t played the new
Doom
yet, so I’m not actually doomed, not yet, but I do have a Halo, or at
least
rented Halo 2 not so long ago and had a ball with it.
Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid
(in

my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy
scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids
who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother
and
I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed
in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from
the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on
foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping
bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies
today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the
clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt.
Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent
argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these
killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to
trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old
boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not
fired
a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye
type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games
available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

by 1987, white homicides had increased by 130 percent.<

To which I reply, with all the love I can send, I swear- are you really going to use this to bolster some kind of argument that tv causes violence using South Africa’s banning of tv “until 1975” and their subsequent “low” white violence rates? LOL! That is one of the funniest things I’ve read in a while.
I never thought South Africa’s apartied policies could be considered funny in any way, but this “study” has certainly come very, very close to making South Africa’s apartied funny, in that I want to know: if Apartied is considered “violence,” and I myself do consider it so, and if tv was banned there, why the apartied?
Better, I want to know if the study’s authors released this with a straight face.
;-))
Also, I did see just tonight as a matter of fact, something on History Channel about the fact that during the Korean war military researchers decided that not enough US troops were “shooting to kill,” and that was because they were being trained on paper targets instead of life-like dummies that looked more human. With that in mind, I could see how playing videogames where we shoot life-like people could be incorporated into that same theory, that by training to do so it might increase shoot-to-kill rates in real battle. But I still doubt that it’s the videogames making kids violent, or that kids are more violent today than in days or yore. There are all sorts of horror stories, not to mention all out wars, too many of both throughout history for me to believe it. Sorry.

Hi Preston !
You ask a very pertinent question :

and video games can influence our society regarding violence
IMO yes ,the facts :
.Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired psychiartrist from West Point, and he
spend most of his life studing the psycology behind the killing.
http://www.killology.com/
The military during the first war discover that only about 15 % where
actualy using their arms with intention to kill. It’s in fact very difficult
to take one human being life, at least it was. During the second war about
44 % where using their weapons with the intention to kill. During the Irak
war of 1991 , 90 % of the soldiers where using theirs weapons to kill. That
the infortunate progression.

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South
Africa for the period 1945 to 1974, with the significant constant being that

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/cpquery/?&db_id=cp104&r_n=sr234.104&sel=TOC_9090
You will find interesting results of several studies showing the constant
relation between media conditioning violences and society.
The average child watches 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on
television before finishing elementary school.

Honestly, what do we expect ? Peaceful nations where random act kindness is
a rule 🙂
OR something like this….
“A female in the United States is three times more likely to be murdered
than a female in Canada, five times more likely to be murdered than a female
in Germany, and eight times more likely to be murdered than a female in
England and Wales. The U.S. female homicide victimization rate is five times
that of all the other high-income countries combined. The firearm homicide
rate for U.S. females is 11 times higher than that in the other high-income
countries.

Hi Preston !
You ask a very pertinent question :
< are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?) and how media
and video games can influence our society regarding violence
IMO yes ,the facts :
.Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired psychiartrist from West Point, and he
spend most of his life studing the psycology behind the killing.
http://www.killology.com/
The military during the first war discover that only about 15 % where
actualy using their arms with intention to kill. It’s in fact very difficult
to take one human being life, at least it was. During the second war about
44 % where using their weapons with the intention to kill. During the Irak
war of 1991 , 90 % of the soldiers where using theirs weapons to kill. That
the infortunate progression.

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South
Africa for the period 1945 to 1974, with the significant constant being that
the South African government did not permit television broadcasting until
1975. During this period, the … white homicide rate in the U. S. [and
Canada] increased by [over 90 percent, and] in South Africa, where
television was banned, the white homicide rate fell by 7.2 percent during
the same period. However, following the introduction of TV in South Africa,
by 1987, white homicides had increased by 130 percent.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/cpquery/?&db_id=cp104&r_n=sr234.104&sel=TOC_9090
You will find interesting results of several studies showing the constant
relation between media conditioning violences and society.
The average child watches 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on
television before finishing elementary school.

Honestly, what do we expect ? Peaceful nations where random act kindness is
a rule 🙂
OR something like this….
“A female in the United States is three times more likely to be murdered
than a female in Canada, five times more likely to be murdered than a female
in Germany, and eight times more likely to be murdered than a female in
England and Wales. The U.S. female homicide victimization rate is five times
that of all the other high-income countries combined. The firearm homicide
rate for U.S. females is 11 times higher than that in the other high-income
countries.
Shit I just shoot my wife !! Have to run !!
God bless

Dear Preston,

“hallucinogens? Like that it was/is the next evolutionary step, that we’re
basically linking up cyberly to others and their brains, and that soon
wetware will be a reality too? Or something along these lines? (Trying to
bring this back on-topic.)”

Would you tell me that how we linked up to others brain while playing
Quake,
or the other click and kill games.
Is this the begining of the new era? Are you sure? Yes I accept that
playing
this kind of games doesn’t make one is murderer but do you feel that you
were missing something while you were playing FRP, or click and kill
games.

I don’t suppose Timothy mean this

Faces are deleting and all of us have no face. Because we are loosing the
humanity.

Best Regards

LOL,
Do you play online DH?
If so, as mentioned, V bought me a subscription to x-box live and I
need

others I know to play with/against. (I was practicing my French while
playing Men of Valor- a ‘Nam-based fps game-  last night, with someone
speaking French while playing in Milan, Italy. That’s pretty cool.)
Let me know.
Didn’t Tim Leary see virtual reality/online gaming as the “next step”
in

hallucinogens? Like that it was/is the next evolutionary step, that we’re
basically linking up cyberly to others and their brains, and that soon
wetware will be a reality too? Or something along these lines? (Trying to

You will find interesting results of several studies showing the constant
relation between media conditioning violences and society.
The average child watches 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on
television before finishing elementary school.

Honestly, what do we expect ? Peaceful nations where random act kindness is
a rule 🙂
OR something like this….
“A female in the United States is three times more likely to be murdered
than a female in Canada, five times more likely to be murdered than a female
in Germany, and eight times more likely to be murdered than a female in
England and Wales. The U.S. female homicide victimization rate is five times
that of all the other high-income countries combined. The firearm homicide
rate for U.S. females is 11 times higher than that in the other high-income
countries.
Shit I just shoot my wife !! Have to run !!<

Oh, and did you see Bowling for Columbine? Michael Moore’s movie, in which he showed how Canadians watch the same tv and play the same videogames and have guns in all sorts of homes, yet have much lower rates of violence than do we?  So why are we USers different?
And what exactly does this have to do with the original assertions that videogames cause violence?

Peace and love,
Preston

Hi Preston !
You ask a very pertinent question :
< are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?) and how media
and video games can influence our society regarding violence
IMO yes ,the facts :
.Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired psychiartrist from West Point, and he
spend most of his life studing the psycology behind the killing.
http://www.killology.com/
The military during the first war discover that only about 15 % where
actualy using their arms with intention to kill. It’s in fact very difficult
to take one human being life, at least it was. During the second war about
44 % where using their weapons with the intention to kill. During the Irak
war of 1991 , 90 % of the soldiers where using theirs weapons to kill. That
the infortunate progression.

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South
Africa for the period 1945 to 1974, with the significant constant being that
the South African government did not permit television broadcasting until
1975. During this period, the … white homicide rate in the U. S. [and
Canada] increased by [over 90 percent, and] in South Africa, where
television was banned, the white homicide rate fell by 7.2 percent during
the same period. However, following the introduction of TV in South Africa,
by 1987, white homicides had increased by 130 percent.

Dear Preston,

“hallucinogens? Like that it was/is the next evolutionary step, that we’re
basically linking up cyberly to others and their brains, and that soon
wetware will be a reality too? Or something along these lines? (Trying to
bring this back on-topic.)”

Would you tell me that how we linked up to others brain while playing
Quake,
or the other click and kill games.
Is this the begining of the new era? Are you sure? Yes I accept that
playing
this kind of games doesn’t make one is murderer but do you feel that you
were missing something while you were playing FRP, or click and kill
games.

I don’t suppose Timothy mean this

Faces are deleting and all of us have no face. Because we are loosing the
humanity.

LOL,
Do you play online DH?
If so, as mentioned, V bought me a subscription to x-box live and I
need

others I know to play with/against. (I was practicing my French while
playing Men of Valor- a ‘Nam-based fps game-  last night, with someone
speaking French while playing in Milan, Italy. That’s pretty cool.)
Let me know.
Didn’t Tim Leary see virtual reality/online gaming as the “next step”

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South
Africa for the period 1945 to 1974, with the significant constant being that
the South African government did not permit television broadcasting until
1975. During this period, the … white homicide rate in the U. S. [and
Canada] increased by [over 90 percent, and] in South Africa, where
television was banned, the white homicide rate fell by 7.2 percent during
the same period. However, following the introduction of TV in South Africa,
by 1987, white homicides had increased by 130 percent.<

To which I reply, with all the love I can send, I swear- are you really going to use this to bolster some kind of argument that tv causes violence using South Africa’s banning of tv “until 1975” and their subsequent “low” white violence rates? LOL! That is one of the funniest things I’ve read in a while.
I never thought South Africa’s apartied policies could be considered funny in any way, but this “study” has certainly come very, very close to making South Africa’s apartied funny, in that I want to know: if Apartied is considered “violence,” and I myself do consider it so, and if tv was banned there, why the apartied?
Better, I want to know if the study’s authors released this with a straight face.
;-))
Also, I did see just tonight as a matter of fact, something on History Channel about the fact that during the Korean war military researchers decided that not enough US troops were “shooting to kill,” and that was because they were being trained on paper targets instead of life-like dummies that looked more human. With that in mind, I could see how playing videogames where we shoot life-like people could be incorporated into that same theory, that by training to do so it might increase shoot-to-kill rates in real battle. But I still doubt that it’s the videogames making kids violent, or that kids are more violent today than in days or yore. There are all sorts of horror stories, not to mention all out wars, too many of both throughout history for me to believe it. Sorry.

Peace and love,

Hi Preston !
You ask a very pertinent question :
< are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?) and how media
and video games can influence our society regarding violence
IMO yes ,the facts :
.Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired psychiartrist from West Point, and he
spend most of his life studing the psycology behind the killing.
http://www.killology.com/
The military during the first war discover that only about 15 % where
actualy using their arms with intention to kill. It’s in fact very difficult
to take one human being life, at least it was. During the second war about
44 % where using their weapons with the intention to kill. During the Irak
war of 1991 , 90 % of the soldiers where using theirs weapons to kill. That
the infortunate progression.

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South
Africa for the period 1945 to 1974, with the significant constant being that

by 1987, white homicides had increased by 130 percent.

You will find interesting results of several studies showing the constant
relation between media conditioning violences and society.
The average child watches 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on
television before finishing elementary school.

Honestly, what do we expect ? Peaceful nations where random act kindness is
a rule 🙂
OR something like this….
“A female in the United States is three times more likely to be murdered
than a female in Canada, five times more likely to be murdered than a female
in Germany, and eight times more likely to be murdered than a female in
England and Wales. The U.S. female homicide victimization rate is five times
that of all the other high-income countries combined. The firearm homicide
rate for U.S. females is 11 times higher than that in the other high-income
countries.

Dear Preston,

“hallucinogens? Like that it was/is the next evolutionary step, that we’re
basically linking up cyberly to others and their brains, and that soon
wetware will be a reality too? Or something along these lines? (Trying to
bring this back on-topic.)”

Would you tell me that how we linked up to others brain while playing
Quake,
or the other click and kill games.
Is this the begining of the new era? Are you sure? Yes I accept that
playing
this kind of games doesn’t make one is murderer but do you feel that you
were missing something while you were playing FRP, or click and kill
games.

I don’t suppose Timothy mean this

Faces are deleting and all of us have no face. Because we are loosing the
humanity.

If so, as mentioned, V bought me a subscription to x-box live and I

In light of my own stated hesitations prior to the last “election,” I post the following.

Oh my god, South Park has done it again- tonight’s episode:

Democracy.
The kids must vote between a giant douch or a giant turd sandwich for school mascot, and Kyle doesn’t see the point in voting because he doesn’t care about either one.
Puff Daddy just showed up at the door with his Vote or Die campaign to illustrate why Kyle should vote. And Kyle’s mom told him, “don’t you know how many people died to give him the right to vote.”
But Kyle just doesn’t care, mainly because he doesn’t see much of a difference.
LOL!
After the “hate crimes” episode, where the South Park kids showed how ridiculous hate crime statutes really are, this has to be one of the classic South Park episodes. I love these kids, even though their creators are self-described Republican-types.

Peace and love,
Preston

Drug Control Policy. According to O’Dwyer’s PR Daily, O&M’s anti-drug

Let’s hear it for video news releases finally getting a smattering of
the public scrutiny they deserve. A video news release or VNR is a
simulated TV news story. Video clips paid for by corporations,
government agencies, and non-governmental organizations are commonly
passed off as legitimate news segments on local newscasts throughout
the United States. VNRs are designed to be indistinguishable from
traditional TV news and are often aired without the original
producers and sponsors being identified and sometimes without any
local editing.

When a VNR touting the controversial Medicare reform law ended with
“In Washington, I’m Karen Ryan, reporting,” Senate Democrats called
foul. The VNR, which aired on 40 stations between January 22 and
February 12, 2004, was paid for by the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services. Ryan, the “reporter,” was in fact employed by a
production company contracted by the Ketchum PR firm to create the
VNR for HHS. An investigation by the U.S. General Accounting Office
concluded that the VNR had violated a ban on government funded
“publicity and propaganda.” According to The Hill, a newspaper based
in Washington, D.C., “VNRs are standard practice in the
public-relations industry and local news reports often rely on them.
… However, the GAO said in its decision, ‘our analysis of the
proper use of appropriated funds is not based upon the norms in the
public relations and media industry.'”

Karen Ryan was back in the news in October, when the liberal-leaning
People for the American Way identified another Ryan VNR. This time
Ryan “reported” on the Bush Administration’s No Child Left Behind
law. A Freedom of Information Act investigation revealed that the
U.S. Education Department paid $700,000 to the PR firm to produce two
VNRs as well as to rate newspaper coverage according to how favorably
reporters described No Child Left Behind. “A number of local stations
ran the VNR as is, and added a local twist by simply having their own
reporter read the script,” reported CampaignDesk.org, a journalist
watchdog website. “The stations that took the time to have their own
reporters record the script of the No Child Left Behind VNR had to
have been fully aware of what they were doing: knowingly deceiving
their viewers about the origins of the story — not to mention
committing plagiarism — by passing off as their own original
reporting words actually written by a PR company hired by the Bush
administration.”

2. WAR IS SELL

The formerly exiled Iraqi Ahmed Chalabi and his Iraqi National
Congress were exposed as hucksters who befriended powerful men in
Washington and played an instrumental role in selling the Iraq War.
The U.S. major media finally examined the extent to which the INC and
Chalabi used funding provided by the U.S. Congress to position
themselves as a central source for much of the now-discredited
“intelligence information” that the Bush administration used to
justify the March 2003 invasion.

“The former Iraqi exile group that gave the Bush administration
exaggerated and fabricated intelligence on Iraq also fed much of the
same information to newspapers, news agencies and magazines in the
United States, Britain and Australia,” Knight Ridder reported in
March 2004. “A June 26, 2002, letter from the Iraqi National Congress
to the Senate Appropriations Committee listed 108 articles based on
information provided by the Iraqi National Congress’s Information
Collection Program, a U.S.-funded effort to collect intelligence in
Iraq. The Information Collection Program was financed out of the at
least $18 million that the U.S. Congress approved for the Iraqi
National Congress, led by Ahmed Chalabi from 1999 to 2003.”

“Chalabi appears to have recognized that the neocons, while ruthless,
realistic and effective in bureaucratic politics, were remarkably
ignorant about the situation in Iraq, and willing to buy a fantasy of
how the country’s politics worked. So he sold it to them,” John Dizard
wrote for Salon.com in May 2004. In a detailed profile of Chalabi and
the INC, the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer included some fairly candid
admissions by Francis Brooke, the INC’s PR guru. Without Chalabi, he
said, “This war would not have been fought.” Beginning in the late
1990s, Chalabi and Brooke had designed a campaign to influence “only
a couple of hundred people” in Washington with the ability to shape
Iraq policy — people like Trent Lott, Newt Gingrich, Richard Perle
and Dick Cheney. Following 9/11, their marketing strategy switched to
terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. Brooke claimed, “I sent out
an all-points bulletin to our network, saying, ‘Look, guys, get me a
terrorist, or someone who works with terrorists. And, if you can get
stuff on WMD, send it!'”

Following the toppling of Saddam Hussein, the U.S. gave Chalabi one
of the 25 seats on its hand-picked new Iraqi Governing Council. The
Pentagon’s $335,000 monthly payments to the INC’s intelligence
program continued until May 2004, when U.S. intelligence agencies
began reporting that Chalabi may have actually been a double agent
working for Iran. American troops raided Chalabi’s headquarters and
home in Baghdad, arrested two of his aides, and seized documents.
“Only five months ago,” observed Andrew Cockburn, “Chalabi was a
guest of honor sitting right behind Laura Bush at the State of the
Union. What brought about this astonishing fall from grace of the man
who helped provide the faked intelligence that justified last year’s
war?” According to Newsweek, “Bush administration officials say the
latest intelligence indicates [Chalabi] may have been supplying the
Iranians with information on U.S. security operations in Iraq that
could ‘get people killed.'”

Chalabi responded by demanding that the U.S. leave Iraq. “Let my
people go,” he said, adding, “It is time for the Iraqi people to run
their affairs.” More recently he has aligned himself with Muqtada
al-Sadr, the radical Shiite cleric whose militia battled U.S. troops
in August in the Iraqi city of Najaf.

3. THE HIDDEN (IN PLAIN SIGHT) PERSUADERS

Stories of so-called “guerrilla marketing” abounded in 2004. From
martinis to cell phones to TV programs, this stealthy form of
advertising usually features paid agents subtly promoting a product
to an unsuspecting audience. According to Shawn Prez of the marketing
agency Power Moves, stealth techniques are especially effective with
teens. “By the time the message gets out, they don’t even know
they’ve been hit; they don’t know that theyve been marketed to. All
they know is that their interest has been piqued,” Prez said. Our
favorite examples of guerilla marketing include the following:

* In New York, attractive men and women flashed their underwear at
strangers outside Grand Central Terminal to promote a local health
club. The underwear featured the logo of the club along with the
words “Booty Call” to promote an exercise class that works the butt
muscles. (We swear we’re not making this up.)

* A fictional blogger, invented by an ad agency, posted blog entries
claiming that a new Sega video game caused him to suffer blackouts
and uncontrollable fits of violence.

* At Fourth of July cookouts throughout the United States, guests
brought Al Fresco chicken sausages to throw on the grill, without
telling the other guests that they were actually working to earn
premiums from a PR firm that was hired to promote sales of the
product.

“This idea — the commercialization of chitchat — resembles a
scenario from a paranoid science-fiction novel about a future in
which corporations have become so powerful that they can bribe whole
armies of flunkies to infiltrate the family barbecue,” observed Rob
Walker in the New York Times.

4. FOOD INDUSTRY FOXES GUARD THE FDA HEN HOUSE

Food industry lobbyists met repeatedly and privately with Bush
administration officials while the administration was drafting rules
to protect the nation’s food supply from bioterrorism. “The resulting
regulations don’t fully protect the public interest,” stated the
Center for Science in the Public Interest. The Grocery Manufacturers
of America, Altria Group (formerly Philip Morris) and others lobbied
to weaken proposed regulations requiring importers to notify the Food
and Drug Administration before food shipments arrive from overseas.
One GMA lobbyist explained, “We all want regulations to protect
against bioterrorism, but in a way to achieve the goals and allow the
business to operate in an efficient manner.” The Bush administration’s
Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tommy Thompson had nothing to
say about the problem until after the 2004 presidential election,
when he announced his resignation plans. In his departure speech in
December, Thompson warned of possible health-related terrorist
attacks. “For the life of me, I cannot understand why the terrorists
have not attacked our food supply because it is so easy to do,” he
said.

5. SHELL GAME WITH HUMAN RIGHTS

Corporate lobby groups such as the International Chamber of Commerce
(ICC) launched a fierce counter-campaign against the proposed Norms
on Business and Human Rights, which were developed by a subcommission
of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. The Norms require
businesses internationally to refrain from activities that violate
human rights, coonstraints that have been vigorously opposed by the
ICC and a the Royal Dutch/Shell oil company, a self-proclaimed leader
in the corporate social responsibility (CSR) movement. “Is this not
the kind of campaign one could expect only from companies lagging
behind and from free-riders refusing to adapt to social and
environmental concerns?” asked the Corporate Europe Observatory
(CEO). The motive behind Shell’s opposition, CEO suggested, is that
“the company generally gets away easily with its inflated claims
concerning its social responsibility record.” A 2004 report by
Christian Aid documented that Shell’s operations in the Niger Delta
(Nigeria) are still causing serious problems for local communities.
The report also found that most of the community development projects
presented in various glossy Shell reports on CSR are in fact failing.
“Hospitals, schools and water supply systems are built but never
start working, and roads are mainly used to boost oil production,”
reported CEO. “But beyond the debate about the extent to which
Shell’s CSR claims are actually greenwash and poor-wash, it is clear
that the company is determined to prevent the emergence of
international mechanisms through which communities could hold it
accountable to its pledges.”

6. GHOSTWRITERS FOR BUSH

In August, the Daily Kos weblog uncovered an astroturf (fake
grassroots) initiative by the George W. Bush reelection campaign,
which generated ghostwritten letters to the editor that found their
way into at least 60 newspapers. This wasn’t the first time that the
Bush administration tried this trick, as we’ve reported in the past.
According to Editor and Publisher, however, the National Conference
of Editorial Writers (NCEW) is now taking the issue seriously. “On
its NCEW e-mail listserv, some 600 subscribers who are mostly
editorial page writers and editors, can alert one another of
suspicious letters,” writes Charles Geraci. “In fact, this is the
most consistent topic on the listserv.”

7. FRANK TALK

A leaked memo by Republican advisor Frank Luntz advised GOP
politicians to avoid the words “preemption” and “war in Iraq” when
talking about the Bush administration’s pre-emptive war in Iraq. “To
do so is to undermine your message from the start,” he advised. “Your
efforts are about ‘the principles of prevention and protection’ in the
greater ‘War on Terror.'” According to the June 2004 Washington Post
story, Luntz also recommended that “No speech about homeland security
or Iraq should begin without a reference to 9/11.”

8. NOT-SO-DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

“One cannot conceive of other elements [that could be] put in place
to create a space that’s more of an affront to the idea of free
expression,” said U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock, after touring
the Democratic National Convention’s “free speech” protest zone in
Boston. The zone is “bordered by cement barriers, a double row of
chain-line fencing, heavy black netting, and tightly woven plastic
mesh,” with “coils of razor wire” along elevated train tracks, the
Boston Globe reported. A lawyer for activists challenging the zone
compared it to “a maximum security prison, Guantanamo Bay, or a zoo”
— comparisons Woodlock called “an understatement,” although he
upheld the zone for security reasons. That’s not to say the
Republican National Convention in New York City was a celebration of
civil liberties. The New York Police Department engaged in
pre-emptive arrest tactics to stop activities planned by
demonstrators.

9. IRAQ WAR SUPPORTERS PROFIT FROM RECONSTRUCTION

Several key advocates for the invasion of Iraq are now profiting from
Iraq’s reconstruction. “As lobbyists, public relations counselors and
confidential advisors to senior federal officials, they warned
against Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, praised exiled leader
Ahmad Chalabi, and argued that toppling Saddam Hussein was a matter
of national security and moral duty,” reported Walter F. Roche Jr.
and Ken Silverstein in the Los Angeles Times. “Now, as fighting
continues in Iraq, they are collecting tens of thousands of dollars
in fees for helping business clients pursue federal contracts and
other financial opportunities in Iraq.” Among the profiteers are:

* former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, Jr., a founding member of the
Committee for the Liberation of Iraq (CLI) who used his Pentagon
connections to help arrange for a debriefing of a Iraqi defector
provided by the Iraqi National Congress who gave false information
about Iraqi biological warfare laboratories (see award-winner #2
above);

* Randy Scheunemann, founding president of the CLI; and

* Washington lobbyist K. Riva Levinson, who while at
Burson-Marsteller’s BKSH & Associates did PR work for the INC on the
U.S. State Department’s tab.

10. WAL-MART GETS PR HELP FROM HILL & KNOWLTON

“Wal-Mart is working with Hill & Knowlton on a PR campaign designed
to rehabilitate the much-maligned company’s reputation in California
and pave the way for 40 new Wal-Mart Supercenters in the state in the
next few years,” PR Week reported in October. The world’s largest
retailer published an “open letter to California residents” in 15
California newspapers on September 23. “As the company has grown,
we’ve become a target for negative comments from certain elected
officials, competitors and powerful special interest groups,”
Wal-Mart wrote. PR Week reported that several of H&K’s California
offices had been working with Wal-Mart for several months on the PR
effort, “primarily handling media relations tasks.” Wal-Mart has
announced plans to increase retail space by 8 percent. The company,
which is also facing a class action suit for sex discrimination, had
a record setting in net sales for the six months ended July 31, 2004.

DISHONORABLE MENTIONS

PR and advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather tied Fleishman-Hillard,
another global PR firm, for sheer audacity at draining the public
well.

* The U.S. indicted executives from Ogilvy and Mather for
participating in an “extensive scheme to defraud the U.S. Government
by falsely and fraudulently inflating the labor costs that Ogilvy
incurred” for its work on a media campaign for the Office of National
Drug Control Policy. According to O’Dwyer’s PR Daily, O&M’s anti-drug
media campaign work was part of a five-year $684 million dollar
project. The government said it was overcharged by O&M from May 1999
to April 2000.

* Several former employees of Fleishman-Hillard say F-H routinely
overbilled the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power some $30,000
a month. According to the Los Angeles Times, one described F-H’s
attitude as, “Get as much as you can because these accounts may dry
up tomorrow.” Questionable charges include $50 for leaving a phone
message and $850 for a two-hour business lunch (not including the
cost of the meal).

HONORABLE MENTIONS

The Center for Media and Democracy would also like to recognize the
following efforts to expose and counter spin in 2004:

* The post-debate media feeding frenzy where campaign officials talk
up their candidates has come to be called Spin Alley. Comedian Jon
Stewart of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” appeared on CNN’s
Crossfire in October, calling it as he saw it. “You go to Spin Alley,
the place called Spin Alley,” he said. “Now, don’t you think that, for
people watching at home, that’s kind of a drag, that you’re literally
walking to a place called deception lane?” On Jay Rosen’s PressThink
weblog, Lisa Stone offered an illuminating history of Spin Alley.
Stewart, she wrote, “was hitting on a practice that had grown more
and more disreputable. As a designated spot for the practice of spin,
the Alley only fell from legitimacy when an alternative practice rose
up and called out to conscience of the press. It was one lesson of
Campaign 2004: Forget about spinning the outcome, just fact check the
debates.”

* Tami Silicio and the Seattle Times brought the first images of U.S.
military casualties to the American mass media in April 2004. Silicio,
a Kuwait-based cargo worker whose photograph of flag-draped coffins of
fallen U.S. soldiers was published in the Times, was fired along with
her husband. Her employer, a private contractor, said it decided to
fire her after receiving a complaint from the military about her
violation of the Pentagon’s ban on images of soldiers’ caskets.

Internet is the precursor to telepathy amongst people.
What do you all think about this?
I was taught Reiki, and one of the techniques is distance healing, where you
can send healing energies to people anywhere.  Much like people gathering to
prayer for someones health etc.
We do that a lot on here… sending our healing thoughts to those in need.

I love these games.

least
rented Halo 2 not so long ago and had a ball with it.
Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid  (in

my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother  and I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from  the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping  bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

“Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old  boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired  a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games  available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have

results of tests using the video game Super Monkey

To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,

the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea

after 3 years of people like me mentioning you should
put up a web site and at least take your own articles

Hi Patrick and thanks for putting that up, it is
really beautiful filming! I’d love to see the movie
but I use a modem to connect which means I can press
the view button and then I went out for the day and
came back and could view the trailer 😉 I don’t
expect you do to anything about that I’m only sharing
🙂

MindVox is beautiful and incomprehensible. After years
I can find some of what’s inside it but it is all
updated whenever you feel like it. I know, it’s your
psychedelic graveyard videogame for schizophrenics.
The ibogaine part of MindVox is beautiful and easy to
find everything. The movies site has a great opening
page and then nothing on it is put together in any way
that makes the least amount of sense about what is
happening with the movie, where it will air, where to
order a dvd or anything.

I trust you’ll let us know 🙂 I’m not complaining I’m
only sharing again 😉 beautiful movie footage, awful
website! It also resizes my screen and moves the
browser around I hate that!!!

A great new year to all!

Hi Preston !
You ask a very pertinent question :
< are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?) and how media
and video games can influence our society regarding violence
IMO yes ,the facts :
.Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired psychiartrist from West Point, and he
spend most of his life studing the psycology behind the killing.
http://www.killology.com/
The military during the first war discover that only about 15 % where
actualy using their arms with intention to kill. It’s in fact very difficult
to take one human being life, at least it was. During the second war about
44 % where using their weapons with the intention to kill. During the Irak
war of 1991 , 90 % of the soldiers where using theirs weapons to kill. That
the infortunate progression.

Now , we have a study from University of Washington researcher Brandon S.
Centerwall  investigating the relation beetwen Tv violence and crimes in
three different population Canada, South Africa, United States :
compared white homicide rates for Canada, the United States, and South
Africa for the period 1945 to 1974, with the significant constant being that
the South African government did not permit television broadcasting until
1975. During this period, the … white homicide rate in the U. S. [and
Canada] increased by [over 90 percent, and] in South Africa, where
television was banned, the white homicide rate fell by 7.2 percent during
the same period. However, following the introduction of TV in South Africa,
by 1987, white homicides had increased by 130 percent.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/cpquery/?&db_id=cp104&r_n=sr234.104&sel=TOC_9090
You will find interesting results of several studies showing the constant
relation between media conditioning violences and society.
The average child watches 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on
television before finishing elementary school.

Honestly, what do we expect ? Peaceful nations where random act kindness is
a rule 🙂
OR something like this….
“A female in the United States is three times more likely to be murdered
than a female in Canada, five times more likely to be murdered than a female
in Germany, and eight times more likely to be murdered than a female in
England and Wales. The U.S. female homicide victimization rate is five times
that of all the other high-income countries combined. The firearm homicide
rate for U.S. females is 11 times higher than that in the other high-income
countries.
Shit I just shoot my wife !! Have to run !!
God bless

I love these games.
Darn it, am I going to suddenly wake up a killer now?
Egad, I’m doomed…errr, no, that’s not right, haven’t played the new
Doom
yet, so I’m not actually doomed, not yet, but I do have a Halo, or at
least
rented Halo 2 not so long ago and had a ball with it.
Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid
(in

my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother  and
I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from
the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping
bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old
boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired
a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games
available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid (in

my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother  and I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping  bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old  boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired  a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games  available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

Hi sara! I just want to thank you for offering your psychological support while I experienced Ibogaine this past weekend. It was a very nice experience but I am still looking forward to doing it with you next year as well as doing a larger dose as well as other experiences ‘thrown in’ (as grass, mushrooms et al) There’s quite a potential in this and as I have always maintained and still do, I am referring to an Ibogaine experience for whatever ‘growth’ and/or education I can get from it. You seem to be one of the few humans who are willing to view Ibogaine as more than just a treatment to get off drugs but as a treatment for life in general. 

        Thanks again and I’ll tell you about the amputation in a different letter. 

                                Thank you and love to your family.

who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old  boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired  a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games  available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

“We are going to hear what Titan sounds like.”
– A NASA scientist says the Huygens space probe will
be able to collect the sweet sounds heard on Saturn’s
hazy moon.

Earlier in the month, images and measurements taken by
the $3.3 billion Cassini spacecraft confirmed
scientists’ suspicions that Saturn’s dark moon,
Phoebe, is a planetary building block left over from
the birth of the solar system.


“Then I heard an eerie sound that I have never heard

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

http://wired.com/news/space/0,2697,66114,00.html
A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

V is strict vegan and I’ve been vegitarian since my ibo spell in August, but
cats being cats, carnivorous and all, they got one heck of a lot of food
neither of us would eat, what with V snatching a whole mess of leftover
flesh to bring home to the furry little beasties.
They also got this feathered “cat dancer” thing that rocks, and they love
it.
V’s sister has a huge slobbery dog that got a few of those big dried leather
bone things to chew on, but prefered the old, partially deflated soccarball
he (Berkeley) found in the woods out back of V’s Mom’s house, bringing it to
me to kick (softly as it’s very difficult for me to kick very hard with my
back and leg issues, but it’s almost harder to say no to a dog I love who
wants to play and keeps telling me so in no uncertain terms).
Anyway, good day to all, and nice to hear about your pleasent
christmases all, especially those shared (as opposed to imposed) with the
other creatures on our planet.

Peace and love,
Preston

I didn’t quite mean the whole addiction to methadone was psychological.  I just thought that after being on 85mgs a day for the last so many yrs that there would have been enough build up in the system to carry him through from his normal 8 or 9am dose till 4pm without stressing out but I must admit I havent been there and obviously didn’t put my brain into gear & think hard enough about it.  I just know that some days he will almost forget & it can be hours later but perhaps its situations or stress that triggers the need.  Allison

Dear Allison,

Addiction to methadone is NOT just psychological! If
you do not get your drink at roughly the same time,
you can start going into withdrawal, especially if you
are a fast metabolizer.

My methadone dose NEVER lasted 24 hours- more like 16,
or 18 if I was lucky. And then the sweats would start
setting in, the pins/needles, and hot/cold flashes.
More serious withdrawal usually doesn’t start until
about day 2-3 post-methadone, but physical discomfort
(which can be very distracting) can set in as early as
half a day after your drink.

Happy holidays, and love to you and your family,

Julie (so glad to be off the ‘done)

Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid

And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy
scouts, which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids
who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s

and I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed
in our

‘rents

practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from
the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on

today? (are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

LOL,

If so, as mentioned, V bought me a subscription to x-box live and I need

Let me know.
Didn’t Tim Leary see virtual reality/online gaming as the “next step” in

hallucinogens? Like that it was/is the next evolutionary step, that we’re
basically linking up cyberly to others and their brains, and that soon
wetware will be a reality too? Or something along these lines? (Trying to

I love these games.
Darn it, am I going to suddenly wake up a killer now?
Egad, I’m doomed…errr, no, that’s not right, haven’t played the new
Doom
yet, so I’m not actually doomed, not yet, but I do have a Halo, or at
least
rented Halo 2 not so long ago and had a ball with it.
Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid  (in

my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother  and I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from  the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping  bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

Peace and love,

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old  boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired  a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games  available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system

Hi sara! I just want to thank you for offering your psychological support while I experienced Ibogaine this past weekend. It was a very nice experience but I am still looking forward to doing it with you next year as well as doing a larger dose as well as other experiences ‘thrown in’ (as grass, mushrooms et al) There’s quite a potential in this and as I have always maintained and still do, I am referring to an Ibogaine experience for whatever ‘growth’ and/or education I can get from it. You seem to be one of the few humans who are willing to view Ibogaine as more than just a treatment to get off drugs but as a treatment for life in general.

Thanks again and I’ll tell you about the amputation in a different letter.

Thank you and love to your family.

not very often at all. matter of fact about an hour or so I fired up

good news is this little spree didn’t cost me a dime. bad news is, I
didn’t get any work done and now I want a better video card to handle
the texture mapping. NOT!

A company I used to work for got all the free redbull we could drink.
It was company policy if we all opened a redbull w/in 5 minutes of each
other, that constituted grounds for an hour long Quake Killing Spree.
We had five Macs networked together. This happened about 3X a week.
Quake, RedBull and Hostess Ho-Ho’s. Quite a combo.

I would dream in Quake 3D for 2 nights after playing.

blah blah blah…

There is a great science fiction book called Otherland (actually there
are 3 or 4 books in the series, I think the first one is “River of Blue
Fire”) which describes virtual reality worlds where you can get trapped
online. spooky… and a good read if yah like that sorta shit.

Hi Kirsty,
Aren’t you down in NZ? What an amazing country.
Incredible.
Spent some time there. I am only asking because its a
long way for those
sauces to travel. Will they keep or can you beem them

would like some of what you are tucking into.
I think you are right in what you say. Maybe you have
the same
sources as me. Guess we will have to wait for
directions.
In any case I dont see any bombs dropping on you. One
of the
benefits of living in a small country. Only problem is
Ireland is very
close to England and sadly thats a country thats too
allied to the US.
I envy you being down under. But, I guess I have a lot
to be thankful
for here in the emerald isle when I am here. Luckily
the Spanish
government has changed!
Say hello for me to the world that surrounds you :).

Ibogaine – Rite of Passage is a documentary about that wunnerful substance which has brought all of us here, now, together, gathered in a large group, only scattered all over planet Earth, and other dimenshunZ.

It’s a film by a very talented do0d named Ben De Loenen.  It has been shown publicly in various places over the course of the last three months, and the final version is now completed.  It will be available on DVD within 30-45 days.

You can view the Trailer here:

not very often at all. matter of fact about an hour or so I fired up UnrealTournament2003 and within ten minutes my heart was racing, my palms were sweaty and I wanted more. hmmm… remind you of anything?

good news is this little spree didn’t cost me a dime. bad news is, I didn’t get any work done and now I want a better video card to handle the texture mapping. NOT!

A company I used to work for got all the free redbull we could drink. It was company policy if we all opened a redbull w/in 5 minutes of each other, that constituted grounds for an hour long Quake Killing Spree. We had five Macs networked together. This happened about 3X a week. Quake, RedBull and Hostess Ho-Ho’s. Quite a combo.

I would dream in Quake 3D for 2 nights after playing.

blah blah blah…

There is a great science fiction book called Otherland (actually there are 3 or 4 books in the series, I think the first one is “River of Blue Fire”) which describes virtual reality worlds where you can get trapped online. spooky… and a good read if yah like that sorta shit.

I love these games.
Darn it, am I going to suddenly wake up a killer now?
Egad, I’m doomed…errr, no, that’s not right, haven’t played the new Doom
yet, so I’m not actually doomed, not yet, but I do have a Halo, or at least
rented Halo 2 not so long ago and had a ball with it.
Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid  (in my

opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts, which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother  and I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my ‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from  the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping  bombs on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today? (are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col. Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old  boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired  a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games  available to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

I love these games.
Darn it, am I going to suddenly wake up a killer now?

Doom
yet, so I’m not actually doomed, not yet, but I do have a Halo, or at
least
rented Halo 2 not so long ago and had a ball with it.
Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid  (in

my

And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with
firearms,

(in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only
year I

entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my
brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts,
which

takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who
weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real
firearms),

and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of
today’s
games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother  and I
got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms
experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in
our
house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my
‘rents
by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no
practice

in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from  the
first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign
countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping  bombs
on
MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today?
(are
kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. MovieguideR has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col.
Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col.
Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old  boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired  a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the
video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate
increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and
Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games  available
to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

Cloned kitten sold for $50,000
By Robin Lettice (robin.lettice at theregister.co.uk)
Published Friday 24th December 2004 12:40 GMT

Califoria-based biotech firm Genetic Savings & Clone (GSC) has made its
first sale: a cloned male kitten, for $50,000.

Little Nicky, bought by a Texas woman identified only as ‘Julie’
because of fears that she would be targeted by anti-cloning groups, is
genetically identical to the owner’s previous cat, ‘Nicky’, a
17-year-old Maine Coone which died in September. The kitten is reported
to resemble the previous cat in appearance, temperament and behaviour.

The Humane Society and other pet advocacy groups say pet cloning is
wasteful, given the 3m to 4m pets destroyed every year in animal
shelters in the US.

GSC says that cat clones would only be for relatively few pet owners,
and would thus have little effect on the number of adoptions.

There are concerns that cloned animals may not live as long as ordinary
animals and may have more health problems. Dolly the sheep, the most
famous cloned animal, lived for only six years – half the 11-12 years
normal life expectancy for a sheep – and suffered from arthritis. It is
not known if these problems were a direct result of the cloning
process, or were merely coincidental.

In order to clone a pet, GSC requires customers to send in a tissue
sample to a ‘Petbank’. The firm has five other cat-cloning deals in the
works. In 2001, GSC produced the first cloned cat, CC, which stands for
Carbon Copy. CC’s stripes differed from the original, but GSC’s
techniques have improved since then.

GSC was co-founded by billionaire John Sperling, who hopes to clone his
dog Missy. The company plans to offer dog cloning in 2005. Dog clones
are harder to produce than cat clones, as dogs ovulate eggs too
immature to clone, so these must be aged in a lab, a difficult process.

Hi List

Has anyone come off using subutex (buprenorphine??) Im really want to stop
using and really can not afford ibogaine i have done the sub before stayed
clean  for a year and started using again.  I wondered what dose to start with
last time i started at 16mg i thought this was to high.

What and how much are you using?. And are you sure you started with 16mg?. Its totally possible, though induction usually begins a bit lower, as the bupe ‘displaces’ the dope, done’, whatever is in there. Dope is a bit easier to switch from. You were on it for a year, so you know how it works kinda.
If you have some left over suboxone and your asking how to detox yourself or switch, i would do like this:
Do ‘last’ bag(s) of dope. wait 12 hours or until truly feeling withdrawl. wait until the goosebumps come . If you take bupe to soon, even though you think your sick(like few hours after last fix when nose starts runnin), you will feel kinda bad as the bupe will ‘kickout’ the heroin from the receptor site. I have found that waiting till i was sick enough and the bupe actually brought a little relief instead of sickness. (12 or so hours for me). I am now on Suboxone(though I did do ibogaine) and prescribed 6mg a day. This took about a week to totally work, meaning that i still felt a little off now and then. I just had a half bundle or 3to4 80’s a day habit, nothing huge, so It wasn’t horrible. individual variations applicable 🙂

Now, if we suppose a bundle(100-200mgs of dimorphine) a day for a few months is the ‘size of habit’, and the dope is decent, I would, after the 12 hours has passed, take ONE 2mg suboxone(or subutex preferrably at induction then switch to subutex). If you feel ok to take another in a few hours, ok.
A total of 6mg the first day is good and on day two, 8 mg is ok.
you can go to 12 if need be but 8 I have found is around where the ceiling effect kicks in.(bupe seems to have a ceiling on the amount of effect it produces. Its only a partial MU agonist, which partly explains this. So it means that above a certain dose, bupe dosen’t do anything more(in simple terms).
I don’t know, tell me donna, how did 16mg  a day make you feel before. Why did you think it was too much?. Make you tired? Does bupe give you a feeling?(like say methadone) I find it doesn’t, largely. Any euphoric feeling is a ‘flicker’ and then is only noticed at all only f you “look for it”. It doesn’t do much for me except what its supposed to. Cuts out the obsessivess over heroin and crew. Cuts out the urge to go do it. And I know if I did, I wouldn’t really get a rush or a nod cuz the bupe beats the heroin out of the recptor site. So I don’t do it. Haven’t yet in a month and a half I’ve been on it. Did Ibogaine in sept. Used again in october(19th) and got on suboxone again  in nov. I was on 16 mg last year but I didn’t take it, just sold it and did herpin instead. Am on 6mg a day and feel OK. Still obsess a bit about dope and gang, and Methadone DID do a better job then bupe, but I can’t afford methadone, that why I don’t get back on. Was on it for nearly a decade at 120mg a day(clinic) and got off and withdrawls were NOT that bad.(not like a tornado of pain like a heroin kick, fast and fierce, but like a monsoon, slow  and neverending,) Tolerable with bupe after 5 days off the methadone and have kicked DONE with and without bupe) surprisng to most folks but its true.
Now the 6 years of xanax/klonopin @12mg a day, that was bad, and that was same time as methadone.

###Sublingual absorbtion rates for suboxone are around 50-70% of buprenorphine is absorbed. almost none or 0.03% of the nalaxone makes it in. Even if 1 or 2% made it through, it still wouldn’t have an effect.
Anyway, the sublingual route by-pass the metabolic mayhem of first pass liver metabolism. In most opiates and in bupe, this “kills” 50% or more of the dose. With buprenorphine, some metabolism is ok, cuz the metabolite norbuprenorphine is kinda active, but most of the effect is from bupe.
Now, ANY OTHER ROUTE besides sublingual (with suboxone and due to nalaxone, parenterally is NOT an option and will be like narcan), is no good. Even holding the tablets between cheecks isn’t effective, as buccal absorption rates(meaning cheek) are only 20-30% and the vessels from the cheek cause first pass metabolic destruction of bupe. Orally this is true as well and the amount the even passes the gut wall is only around 15-20%. and half that is killed right off the bat from the liver(same with the cheeks absorbtion). So, I said all this cuz key to sucess with suboxone is the proper dosage and proper dosage won’t be achived without proper administration/absorbtion. Like when the tabs sit under your tounge and your mouth fills up with spit, don’t swish around and cause the tabs on the sublingual floor to become dispersed into the mass of saliva, which usually only ‘touches’ the cheeks. Just keep the spit out of the way and let the tabs disolve with as little disruption as possible. Now that doesn’t mean SWallow the spit, as A DECENT AMOUNT of bupe has collected in there anyway despite best efforts and its better for it to asorb through the cheeks or to put the whole mass under your tounge in 15 minutes/after the tabs dissolve, than to send it to your stomach where its gonna pass unabsrobed or if it is absorbed, killed off by the liver.  So, in other words, keep tabs under tounge and don’t swallow for 10 to 15 minutes. You should feel a difference.

I would appreciate  any
advice.
There it is. Sorry it goes on and on. Please respond with any questions. No I’m not a doctor, as you can tell but am willing to say that my opinion is worthwhile.

love donna

Hi all. Totally off topic, but:
Anyone else see the disparity in giving $15 million (initially
apparently, but still a pittance) for wave relief from yesterday’s disaster,

and paying what, a $100 billion so far in Iraq (I think that’s the quoted
number I’ve most recently seen) to bomb and otherwise kill people there?
As I’ve so often ask, what in the heck is wrong with the leaders of this

country? Where is the genuine love and humanity for other people and living
creatures?

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument
called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col. Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to
investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers
never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained
army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old boy
who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight
children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired a
real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games available to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

Hey Donna, I am on suboxone now, but am using it as more of a maintenance thing as opposed to detox. I did Ibogaine awhile ago and that helped me to break the dope cycle, but I just wasn’t ready to go totally without opiates and knew deep down that if I didn’t go on a maintenance treatment that I would be back using again. The Ibogaine helped me realize what I needed to change in myself, and the suboxone is keeping me from using dope until I can make those changes. If you have tried using suboxone before and it worked, then maybe it would be a good idea to try it again until you can save up the money to do the Ibo. I have heard suboxone is easier than methadone to come off of and since you won’t be spending money on dope everyday, maybe you can put some $$ aside for ibo. I think it is almost time for me to stop the suboxone, but I don’t regret using it. It definitely made it easier to focus on what I needed to do to get myself in the right position. Good Luck, I’d like to know what you decide to do.

Lee what you wrote is gloomy but I don’t think that far wrong.

There were articles that were highly publiczed when they came out a few
years ago that looked at the ‘average’ corporation, not dot.com only or
the Fortune 500 but the typical corp. They concluded that if a
corporation were subject to the same psych evaluation as a person, most
corporations would fall into the definition of being psychopaths and if
the same laws that apply to people were also applied, most corporations
would be serving life in prison.

The main reason any corp exists is to make money for the shareholders.
Making the world a better place is not part of its purpose. This goes
back to those very long chain letters Brett posted about buying stock
in ATCO. The reason is to make a buck, nothing else.

It isn’t only the oil companies either. Load up the RIAA web site, the
RIAA is case you don’t know is the Recording Industry Association of
America. Their entire news section is nothing, nothing, nothing, not
one thing except their latest lawsuits. Not one exception. They could
replace ‘News’ and change it to ‘The latest list of people we are
suing’

Home

‘The internet is stealing money from the pockets of artists’ is their
line. Except there are very few artists who support this because the
RIAA has been stealing money from them for years. Sell 10 million CDs
and 95% goes to the RIAA for your first CD, slowly getting better if
you turn into a supergroup or big name.

At the same time the internet is ‘ruining the record business’, this
last year was the highest sales figures of CDs ever sold in all
history. They made more money the last year then they ever have.

With cheap high bandwidth and mass storage the MPAA Motion Picture
Association of America, has started to do the same thing.

What I disagree with is your version of that bible quote, ‘the meek
will inherit the earth’ The meek aren’t going to inherit anything

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt.

West Point, here is a review of his book I took from
internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media,
I quote Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive
and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill.
Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial
topic. Now, Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth
his cogent argument called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two
children, Lt. Col. Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to
kill, started to investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many
of these killers never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior
marksmanship to trained army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the
fourteen year old boy who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight
shots on eight children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that
he had not fired a real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship
training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant
conditioning of the video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it,
the kill rate increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War
between Argentina and Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with
old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British
who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the
Nintendo games available to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Hi all. Totally off topic, but:
Anyone else see the disparity in giving $15 million (initially apparently, but still a pittance) for wave relief from yesterday’s disaster, and paying what, a $100 billion so far in Iraq (I think that’s the quoted number I’ve most recently seen) to bomb and otherwise kill people there?
As I’ve so often ask, what in the heck is wrong with the leaders of this country? Where is the genuine love and humanity for other people and living creatures?

Peace and love,

Hi list,

Saw an interesting documentary tonight where Adolf H
ran for election in
Germany and garnered 2.5% approx. of the vote. Four
years and 8 months later
he garnered about 37% approx. and the President of
Germany Hindenburg refused
to allow him to be chancellor for what he stood.
Eventually though
he was persuaded by the business community that they
needed
a popular leader to restore the economy in a time of
crisis.

Apparently at the first election people didn’t vote
for him because they
thought he was a clown and a trouble maker.

What changed their minds?

Well, the Wall St crash devastated the German economy
and the country
became polarised into Pro-Soviets and Pro-Nazis with
the regular
conservatives in the middle. They are the ones who
made it possible for him
to become chancellor by insisting on the composition
of the cabinet
to be limited to 4 Nazis.

Well the rest is history and as we all know this clown
was responsible for a
war that killed 25 million(?).

The title of the documentary was called:

Learning from History.

In school that is why I thought they taught History.

Seems like I was wrong.

Lee

Julie – I join you in your condolences to the
thousands who have perished.

Too bad so many people are confinced ATCO and its
products are somehow
evil. There is no weapon capability in Neoplanar
or SFT – they are
speakers, just flat, no magnet, no cone, no box,
they don’t distort to
max volume (ie all the way to 1000 watts/133db for
Neo and is
basically a big heavy 20K technology for 1K that
is in a ribbon,
NeoPlanar is most often used for wide area
emergency notification.
They use very very little power for the volume and
space they put out,
they aver very environmentally friendly and
durable. HSS is a beam of
sound, the only weapon it may be is in
advertising, great for limiting
sound to a specific area, it is not a weapon. LRAD
is mostly a long
range communication device, just a very clear long
range speaker –
that the sound “CARRIES” because it is focused and
doesn’t bounce all
over the place, not because it is particularly
loud, voice is limited
to 120db max. The military has plenty of ways to
kill or harm people
and few ways to avoid that, LRAD is one way. So
far as I know the
“warning tone” that could be but is NOT INTENDED
TO BE and is NOT
DESIGNED TO BE and is NOT APPROVED TO BE used as a
weapon. Yes
would/could put down a prison riot rather
instantly and perhaps save
lives, it could also be used in search and rescue
because of its long
range, it could be used (and is) to ward off small
boats at long range
so going to investigate doesn’t get one blown to
bits, small LRADs (or
Shorter range HIDA based acoustic devices) could
have a
pan/tilt/camera set-up for security – to prevent
robberies or people
getting in an area – it isn’t going ot instantly
fry some kind brain
cell or cause pain – it is just talking,
voice, kike “HELLO, PLEASE
LEAVE THE AREA” and if it is your area, your
business, your security,
wouldn’t it be nice to be able to give them
a “warning tone”, or set
off a high volume NeoPlanar alarm so they leave
the area???

Just about anything and everything including the
“Good Book.Big Book”
and the “Name of God” can be and is used for evil
or good, sometimes
both depending on which side you happen to be
coming from. I do Reiki
(healing with hands), a friend of my fiancee
thinks it is “The work of
the Devil”, it is matter of perspective. I don’t
mean to rant,
everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it
is 1 capability of 1
device that will only infrequently be used doesn’t
make a companys
technologies weapons. They are basically next
generation/paradigm
acoustics, it is like saying the guy who invented
laser (HSS/LRAD is
like sound laser) invented a weapon technology or
weapon, that might
be 1 use of the technology – LRAD is again, not
intended as a weapon –
meaning to harm anyone. I wish there was peace and
love all over the
place, but there isn’t. I don’t want to see more
poor innocent people
get hurt by REAL WEAPONS because they are in the
wrong place at the
wrong time and headed in the wrong direction  OR
it is really a car
bomber headed in your direction, that is what LRAD
does, communicate.
Sorry, it isn’t like “gee shucks the company I
invested in got the big
military contract”… that is how a lot of
progress in technology and
medicine is made, it just is and I got in front
of seeing ATCO, very
diliberately.

Seasons greetings,

I wish all of you happy holidsys and looking
forward to what the New
Year will bring. For me it will be many things,
one of them is the
financial freedom (and many problems it solves)
that I have waiting
for me. It is no accident, it was years and
countless hours doing
research to find just the right company to
invest in, a “Microsoft
of”… a company that owns a technology – there
have been a number,
superconductor company American Superconductor
(AMSC) is one, BLTI
(Biolase, dental lasers) is another – good
company, early yet. But I
then found ATCO, American Technology Corp  –
this is a gift, from me
to you – an opportunity, for “informational
purposes only”, do or
don’t do with it as you will. I am as certain as
certain can be that
this company will be doing 10X, 100X and perhaps
1000X returns in
1-2,
3-5 and 5-10 years respectively – or there
abouts, maybe half as good
in twice as long, maybe twice as good in half as
long – that I can’t
tell you. I can tell you it is my ticket out of
here, if you are
interested and do stocks or maybe you just want
to open that ibogaine
clinic or have a kid you want to put through
college but don’t have
the money… well ATCO is for you. I have a
neighbor that bought 45
shares – I told her to HOLD, as the price is
going to go wild (better
than TASER/tasr). because the products (LRAD,
HSS, Neoplanar, SFT
-particularly HSS) is going to have an effect on
society world-wide
like say Coca-Cola or Microsoft – to be able to
do things with sound
that have never been able to be done before, in
fact deemed
impossible. ATCO is the next generation in
acoustics, a new
generation
of products, a new paradigm in sound (yadda,
yadda, you get the
point)
and it is very real, not vapor and not “we have
this great tech but
need to develop it…”, it is here, it is now,
they have products and
sales are growing 400% for FY 04 (not announced
yet) and increasing
on
only LRAD sales, HSS sales have not really
started, there is some
NeoPlanar and engineered solutions – ie the 5MC
system for Aircraft
Carrier flight decks.

IMO, what is going to happen with the stock is
going to be a number
of
what is called “splits”, where because of
growth, bigger company,
increased sales and price of the stock, the
price goes up and up,
eventually they issue splits, some number of
shares for each share
you
own. Generally these are 2:1, 3:1 but eBay had a
10:1, it didn’t take
long for 10 times the number of shares to catch
up to their original
price. This kind of thing doesn’t happen with
every company, very,
very few but ATCO has all the pieces and it just
started moving UP on
a new 4.9 million dollar LRAD (Long Range
Acoustic Device) sale to
the
Military – it is one product has a non-lethal
capability, it is a
long
range megaphone of sorts, directed sound and
very clear, something
like having head-phones on, by far most of the
use is just
communicating, to talk to a crowd or small boat,
or at a check-point,
to clear a bridge or building at range, it is
NOT approved or
intended for use at ultra-high volumes at close
range on people short
of being used along with lethal force in defense
of warships, suicide
car bombers racing towards a check-point… to
prevent the use of
lethal force. For instance in Iraq they shoot
warning shots with
guns,
if the car doesn’t stop they sometimes kill the
occupants, sometimes
they are just innocent people that got scared
and tried to run, maybe
they missed the check-point sign (ever miss a
street sign? it
happens)… Standard speakers are only good 30
yards, LRAD is good
and
clear over land to over 300 yards, 700 yards
over water – it is not a
non-lethal device at those ranges, just a
communication device, as a
non-lethal is within 100 yards. So, I guess I am
looking at the
brighter side, it will prevent some harm, maybe
someone thinks it is
Big Brotherish – well buy some stock and speak
your mind at the
Shareholders meeting (and make money while you
are at it), PETA did
that about 20 years ago with US Surgical, bought
a block of stock so
they could have a bigger voice in animal
experimentation at the
company.

Anyway, for whatever reasons, you want or need a
bunch of money, ATCO
is going to split and split and split, that 45
shares will be worth
hundreds and then thousands of shares, not
unlike Microsoft but
starting much sooner – 2 weeks ago I made my
last buy at 6.55, the
stock closed Thursday at 10.22, it is a
technical break-out on anumbe
of factors, the large Army order and 25 million
in financing.. If you
want in, my advice, buy all you can, don’t wait
for the price to pull
back, if it does (pull back) buy more. Then sit
and hold, be patient
and don’t mind the crazy movement, it is likely
to have a lot of
swings in price – so if you go down a bit, don’t
worry, it is more
likely than not you will have 10-100-1000X your
money back, in time.
Don’t wait either, this stock has just attracted
a lot of attention.

Just to share my opportunity, I am not out to
convince you of
anything
and won’t gain, exept in the knowledge that
someone changed thier
life… do your own research, it is your money –
but to just say this
again, yes, I am as sure as sure can be, or I
sure wouldn’t be
posting
this.

Brett

Some info to read and good luck – IMO,
opportunities like this, don’t
get better than this – it is as good as it gets,
I just can’t not
share it with you. ATCO will likely be or be
something close to the
stock of the decade – with just a little bit of
luck. As usual, it is
your money do your own due diligence (dd), I
know what the stock is
going to do but you need to know it for yourself
and invest for
yourself, it is your money. ATCO has years of
growth, so if you see a
quick double and want to cash out, you could
have missed millions –
even on 100-couple hundred shares.

LRAD is a long range acoustic device, a
directional speaker, 15-30
degree beam

HSS is Hypersonic Sound – getting hit with one
is like hearing
virtual
headphones, it is a marketers dream – there is
an emerging
advertising
product called “Digital Signage” – ATCO is
working with SONY (who
wants a piece of ATCO) and others on new
products. HSS can make a
beam

SNOWE APPLAUDS PROGRESS OF LONG RANGE ACOUSTIC
DEVICE DEVELOPED BY
MAINE SMALL BUSINESS

American Technology Corporation in Topsham
Creates Communications
Equipment Used in Security Measures at
Republican Convention, 2004
Olympics and Operations in Iraq
Contact: Antonia Ferrier/ (202) 224-5344
Friday, September 3, 2004

WASHINGTON, D.C. ز A strong supporter of the
Long Range Acoustic
Device (LRAD) developed by American Technologies
Corporation in
Topsham, U.S. Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine)
today hailed the
progress of the company as its acoustics and
force protection
technology were employed by security personnel
at the Republican
National Convention, the 2004 Olympic Games in
Athens, and in ongoing
military operations in the Middle East as
additional security
measures
upon U.S. Naval ships.

دI am so pleased with the success of the long
range acoustic device
system developed by American Technologies – a
Maine small business –
particularly as it aids our nationجs military in
their ongoing
operations. As American Technologies continues
to redefine the
advanced acoustic technology market, I will
continue to work with
them
to secure future opportunities, both militarily
and commercially,
that
will further demonstrate their excellent work,س
said Snowe, who is
chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business.

Long Range Acoustic Devices allow hailing
distances that often exceed
700 meters over water to approaching vessels.
The devices transmit
concentrated audio waves to a specific target,
thereby maintaining
the
strength of the sound wave, rather than
dissipating the sound waves
over a vast medium in all directions. LRADs
fulfill the requirement
of
the U.S. fleet to warn approaching vessels at
significant ranges to
alter their suspected routes through speaking
directly into a
microphone or by the use of prerecorded messages
available in almost
any language.

LRADs have been installed on Naval ships
stationed in the Middle East
in response to the terrorist bombing of the USS
Cole. Snowe, who
contacted the Navyجs Chief of Naval Research
Rear Admiral Jay Cohen
in
January to convey her support for the technology
being deployed with
military forces in Iraq, has been working with
the Navy in outfitting
LRADs on the entire U.S. fleet, in addition to
its current domestic
security uses as demonstrated at the Republican
National Convention
in
New York City this week. Additionally, the LRADs
are currently
employed by some private ferry and cruise ship
lines, including the
Queen Mary 2.

دAs I have witnessed firsthand, the LRAD
technology is an innovative
means to maintain civil order and control. From
the Republican
Convention in New York to the Olympic Games in
Athens, the security
teams for these national and international
events were greatly
assisted by the LRAD system in managing and
communicating with the
large-scale crowds. I commend the ingenuity of
American Technologies
as they continue to expand the uses of the LRAD
system to the
commercial market,س continued Snowe.

American Technologies Corporation, with
facilities in both San Diego,
CA and Topsham, Maine, currently contracts its
LRAD technology
specifically for government and military
applications. The concept of
using this technology as a force protection tool
was originally
conceived within the Advanced Technology
directorate at Bath Iron
Works. Systems engineering, new product
development and refinement of
current acoustic products are all completed at
the Topsham facility.

General Electric builds nuclear weapons and toasters, among many other things.

I don’t knowingly buy General Electric Products, and would never invest in their stock.

If I don’t speak my truth, then, what is truth?

something to hide under the covers?

like some gilded phallic rod? stroke-able only in private?

something to be ashamed of… something to be afraid of?

or something the agenda wants to shove under the carpet?

I’m so excited to be bombarded by targeted sound enticing me to consume, more.

Walking by a soda machine and having fizzing soda and crackling ice erupt from within my head. I just can’t fucking wait. There’s already a storm brewing between my ears. Like I need more voices in my head.

And soon to come… iris recognition sensors that access my credit card statements and customize in real-time a special commercial message for me: “Buy some more audio equipment. Or a new FireWire Drive, you are one block from the Apple store and RAM is on sale today. Or… “There’s a great Taqueria right around the corner…” Like I need to be encouraged to eat taco. Mas queso, por favor. Maybe if I blink 3 times my order will be ready when I reach the counter? right down to the salsa fresca and 16oz Horchata?

I’m so thrilled to know if I choose to voice my opinion in peaceful protest that the goon squad can scatter my rights with blood curdling sound that can destroy my hearing if I don’t submit to the sonic cattle prod within seconds. Or perhaps at a slightly different frequency my bowels will loosen beyond control and I’ll be running from the city park in search of a roll of paper, thoughts of peace and freedom turned fast into relief of abdominal cramps.

I just can’t fucking wait.

Too bad so many people are confinced ATCO and its products are somehow evil. There is no weapon capability in Neoplanar or SFT – they are speakers, just flat, no magnet, no cone, no box, they don’t distort to max volume (ie all the way to 1000 watts/133db for Neo and is basically a big heavy 20K technology for 1K that is in a ribbon, NeoPlanar is most often used for wide area emergency notification.  They use very very little power for the volume and space they put out, they aver very environmentally friendly and durable. HSS is a beam of sound, the only weapon it may be is in advertising, great for limiting sound to a specific area, it is not a weapon. LRAD is mostly a long range communication device, just a very clear long range speaker – that the sound “CARRIES” because it is focused and doesn’t bounce all over the place, not because it is particularly loud, voice is limited to 120db max. The military has plenty of ways to kill or harm people and few ways to avoid that, LRAD is one way. So far as I know the “warning tone” that could be but is NOT INTENDED TO BE and is NOT DESIGNED TO BE and is NOT APPROVED TO BE used as a weapon. Yes  would/could put down a prison riot rather instantly and perhaps save lives, it could also be used in search and rescue because of its long range, it could be used (and is) to ward off small boats at long range so going to investigate doesn’t get one blown to bits, small LRADs (or Shorter range HIDA based acoustic devices) could have a pan/tilt/camera set-up for security – to prevent robberies or people getting in an area – it isn’t going ot instantly fry some kind brain cell or cause pain – it is just talking, voice, kike “HELLO, PLEASE LEAVE THE AREA” and if it is your area, your business, your security, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to give them a “warning tone”, or set off a high volume NeoPlanar alarm so they leave the area???

Just about anything and everything including the “Good Book.Big Book” and the “Name of God” can be and is used for evil or good, sometimes both depending on which side you happen to be coming from. I do Reiki (healing with hands), a friend of my fiancee thinks it is “The work of the Devil”, it is matter of perspective. I don’t mean to rant, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it is 1 capability of 1 device that will only infrequently be used doesn’t make a companys technologies weapons. They are basically next generation/paradigm acoustics, it is like saying the guy who invented laser (HSS/LRAD is like sound laser) invented a weapon technology or weapon, that might be 1 use of the technology – LRAD is again, not intended as a weapon – meaning to harm anyone. I wish there was peace and love all over the place, but there isn’t. I don’t want to see more poor innocent people get hurt by REAL WEAPONS because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time and headed in the wrong direction  OR it is really a car bomber headed in your direction, that is what LRAD does, communicate. Sorry, it isn’t like “gee shucks the company I invested in got the big military contract”… that is how a lot of progress in technology and medicine is made, it just is and I got in front of seeing ATCO, very diliberately.

Hey Donna, I am on suboxone now, but am using it as more of a maintenance thing as opposed to detox. I did Ibogaine awhile ago and that helped me to break the dope cycle, but I just wasn’t ready to go totally without opiates and knew deep down that if I didn’t go on a maintenance treatment that I would be back using again. The Ibogaine helped me realize what I needed to change in myself, and the suboxone is keeping me from using dope until I can make those changes. If you have tried using suboxone before and it worked, then maybe it would be a good idea to try it again until you can save up the money to do the Ibo. I have heard suboxone is easier than methadone to come off of and since you won’t be spending money on dope everyday, maybe you can put some $$ aside for ibo. I think it is almost time for me to stop the suboxone, but I don’t regret using it. It definitely made it easier to focus on what I needed to do to get myself in the right position. Good Luck, I’d like to know what you decide to do.

New York’s HIV experiment
By Jamie Doran
Reporter/producer, Guinea Pig Kids

HIV positive children and their loved ones have few rights if they
choose to battle with social work authorities in New York City.

Jacklyn Hoerger’s job was to treat children with HIV at a New York
children’s home.

But nobody had told her that the drugs she was administering were
experimental and highly toxic.

“We were told that if they were vomiting, if they lost their ability to
walk, if they were having diarrhoea, if they were dying, then all of
this was because of their HIV infection.”

In fact it was the drugs that were making the children ill and the
children had been enrolled on the secret trials without their
relatives’ or guardians’ knowledge.

As Jacklyn would later discover, those who tried to take the children
off the drugs risked losing them into care.

The BBC asked the Alliance for Human Research Protection about their
view on the drug trials.

GUINEA PIG KIDS
Tuesday, 30 November, 2004
1930 GMT on BBC Two (UK)

Spokesperson Vera Sherav said: “They tested these highly experimental
drugs. Why didn’t they provide the children with the current best
treatment? That’s the question we have.

“Why did they expose them to risk and pain, when they were helpless?

“Would they have done those experiments with their own children? I
doubt it.”

Power and authority

When I first heard the story of the “guinea pig kids”, I instinctively
refused to believe that it could be happening in any civilised country,
particularly the United States, where the propensity for legal action
normally ensures a high level of protection.

But that, as I was to discover, was central to the choice of location
and subjects, because to be free in New York City, you need money.

I’ve had many ACS case workers tell me: ‘We’re ACS, we can do whatever
we want’
David Lansner, family lawyer

Over 23,000 of the city’s children are either in foster care or
independent homes run mostly by religious organisations on behalf of
the local authorities and almost 99% are black or hispanic.

Some of these kids come from “crack” mothers and have been infected
with the HIV virus. For over a decade, this became the target group for
experimentation involving cocktails of toxic drugs.

Central to this story is the city’s child welfare department, the
Administration for Children’s Services (ACS).

The ACS, as it is known, was granted far-reaching powers in the 1990s
by then-Republican Mayor Rudi Giuliani, after a particularly horrific
child killing.

Within the shortest of periods, literally thousands of children were
being rounded up and placed in foster care.

“They’re essentially out of control,” said family lawyer David
Lansner. “I’ve had many ACS case workers tell me: ‘We’re ACS, we can do
whatever we want’ and they usually get away with it.”

Having taken children into care, the ACS was now, effectively, their
parent and could do just about anything it wished with them.

‘Serious side-effects’

One of the homes to which HIV positive children were taken was the
Incarnation Children’s Center, a large, expensively refurbished red-
bricked building set back from the sidewalk in a busy Harlem street.

It is owned by the Catholic church and when we attempted to talk to
officials at Incarnation we were referred to an equally expensive
Manhattan public relations company, which then refused to comment on
activities within the home.

Hardly surprising, when we already knew that highly controversial and
secretive drug experiments had been conducted on orphans and foster
children as young as three months old.

We asked Dr David Rasnick, visiting scholar at the University of
Berkeley, for his opinion on some of the experiments.

He said: “We’re talking about serious, serious side-effects. These
children are going to be absolutely miserable. They’re going to have
cramps, diarrhoea and their joints are going to swell up. They’re going
to roll around the ground and you can’t touch them.”

He went on to describe some of the drugs – supplied by major drug
manufacturers including Glaxo SmithKline – as “lethal”.

When approached by the BBC, Glaxo SmithKline said such trials must have
stringent standards and be conducted strictly in accordance with local
regulations.

Battle of wills

At Incarnation, if a child refused to take the medicines offered, he or
she was force-fed through a peg-tube inserted into the stomach.

Critics of the trials say children should have been volunteered to test
drugs by their parents.

When Jacklyn Hoerger later fostered two children from the home where
she used to work with a view to adopting them, she discovered just how
powerful the ACS was.

“It was a Saturday morning and they had come a few times unannounced,”
she said. “So when I opened the door I invited them in and they said
that this wasn’t a happy visit. At that point they told me that they
were taking the children away. I was in shock.”

Jacklyn, a trained paediatric nurse, had taken the fatal step of taking
the children off the drugs, which had resulted in an immediate boost to
their health and happiness.

As a result she was branded a child abuser in court. She has not been
allowed to see the children since.

In the film Guinea Pig Kids, we follow Jacklyn’s story and that of
other parents or guardians who fear for the lives of their loved ones.

We talk to a child who spent years on drugs programmes which made them
and their friends ill, and we discover that Incarnation is not an
isolated case. The experiments continue to be carried out on the poor
children of New York City.

Guinea Pig Kids was broadcast on Tuesday, 30 November, 2004, at 1930
GMT on BBC Two (UK).

I love these games.
Darn it, am I going to suddenly wake up a killer now?
Egad, I’m doomed…errr, no, that’s not right, haven’t played the new Doom yet, so I’m not actually doomed, not yet, but I do have a Halo, or at least rented Halo 2 not so long ago and had a ball with it.
Blaming videogames for social and youth violence isn’t any more valid (in my opinion anyway) than blaming Catcher in the Rye or Naked Lunch is.
And having known kids, myself included, who did very well with firearms, (in my case, winning the Best Shot in my high school the one and only year I entered the competition, my sophmore year of High School, and both my brother and I earning our Rifle and Shotgun meritbadges in boy scouts, which takes a lot of very accurate firing, which wasn’t easy for two kids who weren’t allowed to have even toy guns in our home, much less real firearms), and were never allowed to play most videogames either (and none of today’s games even existed for that matter), I’m wondering where my brother and I got our accuracy skills from. We both had extremely limited firearms experience, next to none really with no firearms whatsoever allowed in our house (my one pellet gun having been bought and kept hidden from my ‘rents by me during my last year in high school which gave me little to no practice in shooting), and yet we both were “naturals,” and did very well from the first day we ever fired a firearm.
I don’t suppose their parents dropping bombs and poisons on foreign countries (not to mention burning up Branch Davidians and dropping bombs on MOVE) have anything to do with kids’ alleged violent tendencies today? (are kids really more violent today than in days of yore anywho?)

Peace and love,

“Video games also have much to offer the military, said

Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col. Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old boy who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired a real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games available to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey
Ball.
To devise better systems for training physicians,
Rosser and his colleagues brought together surgeons,
movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

Hey Donna,

I think buprenorphine is most definitely easier
to come off than Methadone,..as you know.

Donna,..in my humble opinion,we need to get rid
of the underlying cause,..so it becomes easier
not to relapse.

For me, Iboga/Ibogaine took a lot of the underlying
reasons away.

It is like it gives me a clearer choice,..I can cut through
all the bullsh*t. It seemed to heal from the inside out,..
not completely,..but enough.

Day 41,..I am in love with everything.
My body is still a big baby,..my nervous system is to alive.
I am feeling a lot stronger,..though I tire easily.

No nicotine,.though I wouldn’t mind a ciggie now and again,
I am smoking cannabis,..it helps big time with the tiny withdrawals.
No heroin…not interested,no craving. Of course no Methadone.
The sugar (over the top) addiction,..gone.No craving for sugar
until I see a deadly desert at a coffee shop, I will think Mmmm
but the no choice is easy.

I think going on to the buep is a great idea if you are
using and choose not to.

Love Jasen.

Love Jasen.

Hi Ron !!
You are doing good ,man.!!
One thing that helped me at the begining of my sobriety where slogans . Like
Keep it simple.
First thing first
Easy does it
One day at the time
Think
Now ,a re you going to  meetings ?
In my humble opinion a group support is very important because addicts and
alcoholics have the tendencie to isolate and at the begining we have to put
sometimes a real effort to go to meetings, no matter what !!

How many hours do you had to spend in college to be an Attorney ?
So how many hours are you willing to invest to learnt how to live sober,
joyous and free. ?
This is the whole point. This simple and clear.

Yesterday a friend of mine was the speaker at our meeting. This friend (
Bill ) at the end of his carriere of drugs addict and drunk called the
hospital to check if they had a good dermatoligst to remove the big  bugs
that he had all over his body.
_ They told him : ” yes, take a cab and come right away !! ”
After, a small “vacation” in the coucou’s nest  ( 5 days ) he came to AA and
had been sober since 🙂 ( 17 years ).
Now, this guy comes everyday to a meeting in the evening, then he go to work
as a bartender in one of the crazyest place in town. I have another friend
that had to learnt how to walk ( he spent the last year of his drinking in
his bed )
Another friend  had to learnt how to talk ( he was living in New Orleans,
like a dog, behind a dumpster ).
Ron, you are smart, articulate, bright in a dark place and  you have a good
paper on the wall.

Don’t wait….

Don’t let your “convincing intelligence” or the black wolf  take away your
right to peace and serenity.

You are a good man doing, now, the next right thing and if it’s rought ,at
time, remember that too shall pass….
God bless
Francis

“Its really too bad these technologies you seek to profit from are being 
used as weapons.”

Too bad so many people are confinced ATCO and its products are somehow evil. There is no weapon capability in Neoplanar or SFT – they are speakers, just flat, no magnet, no cone, no box, they don’t distort to max volume (ie all the way to 1000 watts/133db for Neo and is basically a big heavy 20K technology for 1K that is in a ribbon, NeoPlanar is most often used for wide area emergency notification.  They use very very little power for the volume and space they put out, they aver very environmentally friendly and durable. HSS is a beam of sound, the only weapon it may be is in advertising, great for limiting sound to a specific area, it is not a weapon. LRAD is mostly a long range communication device, just a very clear long range speaker – that the sound “CARRIES” because it is focused and doesn’t bounce all over the place, not because it is particularly loud, voice is limited to 120db max. The military has plenty of ways to kill or harm people and few ways to avoid that, LRAD is one way. So far as I know the “warning tone” that could be but is NOT INTENDED TO BE and is NOT DESIGNED TO BE and is NOT APPROVED TO BE used as a weapon. Yes  would/could put down a prison riot rather instantly and perhaps save lives, it could also be used in search and rescue because of its long range, it could be used (and is) to ward off small boats at long range so going to investigate doesn’t get one blown to bits, small LRADs (or Shorter range HIDA based acoustic devices) could have a pan/tilt/camera set-up for security – to prevent robberies or people getting in an area – it isn’t going ot instantly fry some kind brain cell or cause pain – it is just talking, voice, kike “HELLO, PLEASE LEAVE THE AREA” and if it is your area, your business, your security, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to give them a “warning tone”, or set off a high volume NeoPlanar alarm so they leave the area???

Just about anything and everything including the “Good Book.Big Book” and the “Name of God” can be and is used for evil or good, sometimes both depending on which side you happen to be coming from. I do Reiki (healing with hands), a friend of my fiancee thinks it is “The work of the Devil”, it is matter of perspective. I don’t mean to rant, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it is 1 capability of 1 device that will only infrequently be used doesn’t make a companys technologies weapons. They are basically next generation/paradigm acoustics, it is like saying the guy who invented laser (HSS/LRAD is like sound laser) invented a weapon technology or weapon, that might be 1 use of the technology – LRAD is again, not intended as a weapon – meaning to harm anyone. I wish there was peace and love all over the place, but there isn’t. I don’t want to see more poor innocent people get hurt by REAL WEAPONS because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time and headed in the wrong direction  OR it is really a car bomber headed in your direction, that is what LRAD does, communicate. Sorry, it isn’t like “gee shucks the company I invested in got the big military contract”… that is how a lot of progress in technology and medicine is made, it just is and I got in front of seeing ATCO, very diliberately.

“Its really too bad these technologies you seek to profit from are being
used as weapons.”

Too bad so many people are confinced ATCO and its products are somehow evil. There is no weapon capability in Neoplanar or SFT – they are speakers, just flat, no magnet, no cone, no box, they don’t distort to max volume (ie all the way to 1000 watts/133db for Neo and is basically a big heavy 20K technology for 1K that is in a ribbon, NeoPlanar is most often used for wide area emergency notification.  They use very very little power for the volume and space they put out, they aver very environmentally friendly and durable. HSS is a beam of sound, the only weapon it may be is in advertising, great for limiting sound to a specific area, it is not a weapon. LRAD is mostly a long range communication device, just a very clear long range speaker – that the sound “CARRIES” because it is focused and doesn’t bounce all over the place, not because it is particularly loud, voice is limited to 120db max. The military has plenty of ways to kill or harm people and few ways to avoid that, LRAD is one way. So far as I know the “warning tone” that could be but is NOT INTENDED TO BE and is NOT DESIGNED TO BE and is NOT APPROVED TO BE used as a weapon. Yes  would/could put down a prison riot rather instantly and perhaps save lives, it could also be used in search and rescue because of its long range, it could be used (and is) to ward off small boats at long range so going to investigate doesn’t get one blown to bits, small LRADs (or Shorter range HIDA based acoustic devices) could have a pan/tilt/camera set-up for security – to prevent robberies or people getting in an area – it isn’t going ot instantly fry some kind brain cell or cause pain – it is just talking, voice, kike “HELLO, PLEASE LEAVE THE AREA” and if it is your area, your business, your security, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to give them a “warning tone”, or set off a high volume NeoPlanar alarm so they leave the area???

Just about anything and everything including the “Good Book.Big Book” and the “Name of God” can be and is used for evil or good, sometimes both depending on which side you happen to be coming from. I do Reiki (healing with hands), a friend of my fiancee thinks it is “The work of the Devil”, it is matter of perspective. I don’t mean to rant, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it is 1 capability of 1 device that will only infrequently be used doesn’t make a companys technologies weapons. They are basically next generation/paradigm acoustics, it is like saying the guy who invented laser (HSS/LRAD is like sound laser) invented a weapon technology or weapon, that might be 1 use of the technology – LRAD is again, not intended as a weapon – meaning to harm anyone. I wish there was peace and love all over the place, but there isn’t. I don’t want to see more poor innocent people get hurt by REAL WEAPONS because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time and headed in the wrong direction  OR it is really a car bomber headed in your direction, that is what LRAD does, communicate. Sorry, it isn’t like “gee shucks the company I invested in got the big military contract”… that is how a lot of progress in technology and medicine is made, it just is and I got in front of seeing ATCO, very diliberately.

“Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.

Yeap, you bet , This remember me of a study by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman from
West Point, here is a review of his book I took from internet

Whenever I talk on the influence of the mass media, I quote Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman because he has given us the most definitive and the clearest
insight into how the media teaches children to kill. Movieguide® has
published his exhaustive article on this crucial topic. Now, Lt. Col. Dave
Grossman has written a book clearly setting forth his cogent argument called
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.

After the Jonesboro Arkansas killings by two children, Lt. Col. Grossman,
who taught officers candidates at West Point to kill, started to investigate
the mass killing of children and others by children.

He found out some startling things. First, that many of these killers never
used a gun before, yet they exhibited superior marksmanship to trained army
professionals. For instance, Michael Carneal, the fourteen year old boy who
shot up the prayer group in Paducha, KY, fired eight shots on eight children
and had eight hits. Experts were amazed to find that he had not fired a real
gun before. Where did he get his marksmanship training? Video games.

Lt. Col. Grossman shows that without the operant conditioning of the video
game, a soldier’s kill rate is about 15%. With it, the kill rate increases
to 90%. Thus, in the recent 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and Great
Britain, the Argentines who trained with old-fashioned bull’s-eye type
targets, had a 15% kill rate, whereas the British who trained with
sophisticated computer games, adapted from the Nintendo games available to
your kids, had a 90% kill rate.

movie makers and video game designers to discuss ways
the three groups can develop better tools.
While the systems are aimed mostly at medical
training, he also does classroom demonstrations so
kids can get a taste of what it’s like.
More than 5,000 people, from schoolchildren to
surgeons, have done training exercises on a system
Rosser calls Top Gun, designed to train laparoscopic
surgeons, doctors who use minimally-invasive
techniques to repair injuries.
Rosser has had subjects play Super Monkey Ball as well
as practice techniques of laparoscopic surgery by
suturing a sponge with long probes and dropping a pea
into a hole. In all, he has done Top Gun training for
more than a decade.
Video games also have much to offer the military, said
Greg Mogel, a radiologist and director of the West
Coast arm of TATRC, who spoke alongside Rosser at the
conference held in Marina del Rey.
“You train as you fight and you fight as you train,”
he said.
TATRC demonstrated a program called STATCare, a
virtual simulator for combat medics that lets them
bandage wounds, apply tourniquets, administer
intravenous fluids, inject medications and make all of
the other assessments they would be required to do in
an actual battlefield.
The program is proven to work, said TATRC’s J. Harvey
Magee, but “on the negative side, it doesn’t respond
like a really cool video game yet.” That is where
Rosser said he hoped the conference would be of value.

One of the other titles he helped demonstrate was The
Journey to Wild Divine, a $160 game that relies on
biofeedback. Players with heart-rate and
skin-conduction monitors hooked to their fingers must
calm the body and mind to bring responses in line with
the demands of the game. In a demonstration, players
had to control their heart rate and stress levels in
order to make a balloon float through a mystical
environment.
Another product on display was a system developed by
researcher Walter Greenleaf that applies technology to
hand rehabilitation — patients wear a special
sensor-laden glove and control a video game by doing
exercises. In the classic game Asteroids, rotating the
wrist moves a spaceship left and right, while making a
fist fires cannons.
All of that gameplay may sound like a waste of time to
some people, but for Rosser, it’s all part of the job.

“You have to be a Nintendo surgeon,” he said.

A NASA spacecraft has detected three dozen “massive,
baby galaxies” forming relatively close to our own
Milky Way, scientists announced Tuesday.
“These galaxies give us a great opportunity to study
the processes that gave birth to galaxies in an
up-close and personal way,” said team leader Tim
Heckman, director of the Center for Astrophysical
Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s almost
like looking out the window and seeing a dinosaur
walking by.”
The Earth-orbiting Galex spacecraft found the baby
galaxies by scanning the sky for exceptionally bright
spots of ultraviolet light. The light is given off
while stars are being formed within young galaxies and
tends to diminish as the galaxies get older and the
stars stabilize.
Because the newfound galaxies are several times closer
to the Milky Way than previously discovered
“newborns,” scientists can now use various
Earth-orbiting observatories, like the Hubble Space
Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, to study
them in detail.

Conflict Over Pain Management Heats Up as Mainstream Medical Groups Wake Up
12/24/04
http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/368/conflict.shtml The long-simmering
battle between federal drug law enforcers and pain management doctors,
patients,
and academics over the proper use of opioid pain medications such as
Oxycontin
is turning white hot. Between the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA)
sudden reversal on a years-long collaborative effort with academic pain
specialists over what constitutes acceptable opioid prescribing (
http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/365/faq.shtml) and the recent successful
Justice Department
prosecution of nationally known pain treatment pioneer Dr. William Hurwitz,
mainstream medical organizations and personalities that had up until now been
quietly complacent have begun to go on the offensive.

With tens of millions of Americans suffering from chronic pain and federal
drug enforcers hell-bent on cracking down on what they term an “epidemic” of
prescription drug diversion and abuse, pain patients and doctors have been
caught
in the middle. The crisis in pain treatment has been building for years, as
zealous state and federal prosecutors go after pain treatment doctors they
accuse of being no better than drug dealers. Doctors, unsurprisingly, are
proving
increasingly reluctant to prescribe opioid pain relievers or even to treat
pain patients with opioids for fear of spending the rest of their lives in
prison, a fate that has already befallen some doctors and one that Dr.
Hurwitz faces
when he is sentenced in March.

Pain doctors, patients and advocates fought back on several fronts this
month. This week, three major medical associations representing pain
specialists
harshly and publicly criticized the DEA’s sudden reversal on the prescribing
guidelines for opioids. Those guidelines, which took the form of a “Pain
FAQ,”
were the result of a multi-year collaboration between the DEA and academic
pain
specialists. They were posted on the DEA web site in August, but jerked down
again weeks later without notice to the academics and replaced shortly
thereafter with revised guidelines that stiffened the DEA’s attitude toward
what it
termed improper prescribing. The letter, signed by the presidents of the
American Pain Society (APS), the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM),
and the
American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) called the new DEA policy
guidelines “an unfortunate step backward” that will only lead to “an
adversarial
relationship between doctors and the DEA.”

The DEA responded with a statement from spokesman Bill Grant, who said the
agency “wishes to reassure the public that the withdrawal of the August
statement does not represent any change in DEA’s investigative emphasis or
approach.
Physicians acting in good faith and in accordance with established medical
norms should remain confident that they may continue to dispense appropriate
pain
medications.”

Drug czar John Walters also attempted to address the growing controversy. At
a Tuesday press conference, Walters told reporters that “synthetic opioids
are
of enormous medical benefit for people,” but undercut himself with pain
advocates by going on to say that among the doctors prosecuted as Dr.
Feelgoods
“there were not even any close calls.”

The pain associations weren’t buying it. Citing what they called “the
over-aggressive prosecutions” of pain doctors, pharmacists, and other health
professionals, the association presidents said that while the DEA says it
does not
want to stop doctors from adequately treating chronic pain with opioids, the
new
guidelines “will undoubtedly have the exact opposite effect on any
practitioner reading them.”

The association presidents, APS president Dennis Turk, AAPM president Samuel
Hassenbusch, and ASAM president Lawrence Brown, zeroed in on the DEA’s
assertion that merely prescribing high doses of opioid pain relievers can
lead to a
doctor being investigated. Such statements will have a chilling effect on the
practice of pain medicine, they wrote. “Reading that the government can
investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated will send
chills down
the spine of practitioners who are treating patients with [narcotic
painkillers] and will certainly contribute to the undertreatment or
non-treatment of
moderate to severe chronic pain.”

“The bottom line on this letter is that if the DEA thought changes were
needed, it should have engaged in a little more discussion about it and get
everyone on board,” said Chuck Weber, spokesman for the American Pain
Society. “There
was a real change in tone between what was agreed upon and posted in August
and the revised guidelines issued last month,” he told DRCNet. “The main
concern was the lack of dialogue.”

“This letter is absolutely a positive move,” said Dr. Frank Fisher, a
California pain specialist who was prosecuted and ultimately exonerated over
his
opioid prescribing practices and who served as a defense consultant in the
Hurwitz
trial. “Those academics spent years working with the DEA to come up with
reasonable guidelines, but then the DEA jerked them down and didn’t do the
courtesy of notifying them,” he told DRCNet. “The DEA has an absolute
obligation to
work with the academic community in promulgating guidelines, but what they
have
done is abrogate that responsibility and their duty to regulate controlled
substances in a matter that makes them available to patients who need them.”

The American Academy of Physicians and Surgeons, which for years has been
waging a lonely struggle within the profession to protect opioid-prescribing
doctors, also welcomed the intervention by the pain association heads. “Even
though we weren’t fans of the FAQ,” said academy spokesperson Kathryn Serkes,
“at
least with them you got something on paper. You want government agencies to
commit to something on paper so you know where the bar is, but when the bar
keeps
moving at the whim of prosecutors and investigators, you’ve got a real
problem,” she told DRCNet. “Doctors and patients are literally at the mercy
of
prosecutors and the DEA. We’ve been angry about this for years — it’s about
time
some of the other physicians’ groups got angry, too. They’ve been manipulated
and made fools of. At this point, anger is an appropriate response.”

Another broadside against Justice Department tactics came in a December 10
letter from six past presidents of the American Pain Society harshly
criticizing
the testimony of yet another past APS president, Dr. Michael Ashburn, as an
expert prosecution witness in the recently concluded Hurwitz trial.
Prosecutors
in that case used Ashburn to suggest to jurors that Hurwitz’ practice was
outside the scope of accepted medical procedure and that prescribing large
amounts of opioids was, too.

But the APS past presidents disagreed in blunt terms. “We are stunned by his
testimony,” the letter said. “As leaders in this field, we feel compelled to
correct the errors in his testimony, lest it be used in the future in a
manner
that worsens the national tragedy of untreated pain.” Ashburn’s testimony was
filled with “serious misrepresentations” and “factually wrong or serious
misstatements of consensus in the field,” they wrote. In one example, the
past
presidents pointed out that Ashburn testified that the use of “high dose”
opioid
therapy, which Hurwitz practiced, was an indication of drug abuse in people
not
suffering from chronic pain from cancer.

“It is factually untrue that this is a consensus opinion of pain experts,”
the past APS presidents wrote. “We strongly hold the view that patients with
non-cancer pain may benefit from opioid therapy and that the dose necessary
to
control pain may be high. Use of ‘high dose’ opioid therapy for chronic pain
is
clearly in the scope of medicine.” Ashburn’s characterizations of what
constituted “high dose” opioid therapy was so low as to be simply “absurd,”
the
doctors added.

Similarly, Ashburn testified that prescribing opioids to patients with
addiction problems is medically unacceptable. “This is not the view of
experienced
clinicians in the field,” the past presidents complained. “It is unacceptable
to promulgate the view that the disease of addiction automatically denies
patients with severe pain the possibility of relief through careful opioid
therapy,” they wrote.

“We will try to correct the public record after the trial concludes and
sincerely hope that the government and the court will consider this
information
now,” concluded the letter from Russell Portenoy, MD, chairman of the
Department
of Pain Medicine and Palliate Care at Beth Israel Medical Center; James N.
Campbell, MD, director of the Blaustein Pain Treatment Center at the Johns
Hopkins University Medical Center; Kathleen Foley, MD, of Pain & Palliative
Care
Services at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; Charles Cleeland, PhD,
director of the Pain Research Group at the University of Texas MD Anderson
Cancer
Center; Christine Miaskowski, RN PhD, chair of the Department of Nursing at
the
University of California San Francisco; and Richard Payne, MD, director of
the
Duke University Care at the End of Life program. According to Fisher,
however, though the letter was seen by the judge, it was not shown to the
jury.

Ashburn, who currently works for a pharmaceutical company that is developing
products that would compete against opioid pain relievers, declined a DRCNet
offer to comment either in general or on the specifics of the accusations
against him.

“This letter publicly criticizing Ashburn has enormous significance,” said
Dr. Fisher. “What Ashburn did in his testimony is similar to what so-called
experts have been doing to doctors all over the country, but this time it
came out
in the closely watched trial of a prominent and well-respected physician.
This time they didn’t get away with it.”

“They are finally waking up,” exclaimed Siobhan Reynolds, executive director
of the pain patients and doctors advocacy group the Pain Relief Network (
http://www.painreliefnetwork.org). “What happened to Dr. Hurwitz symbolizes
the
vulnerability of doctors who treat pain with opioids. The medical profession
knows this and can’t deny it. Dr. Hurwitz is a political prisoner, it’s as
simple
as that,” she told DRCNet. “He refused to plead guilty and now they are
making
an example of him. But his example is serving to awaken political
consciousness among physicians. That makes me slightly optimistic,” she told
DRCNet.

Even the American Medical Association is finally bestirring itself. The
largest doctors’ organization in the country voted at its Interim Meeting in
Atlanta this month to “support interpreting federal law in a way that would
let
doctors continue to write pain medication prescriptions for patients in need,
while letting the government provide oversight and regulation to minimize
risks to
patients’ health and safety,” according to this week’s AMA newsletter. The
groups will “voice concerns to DEA over pain medication prescribing policy,”
the
newsletter added.

The AMA did not mention the prosecutions of pain management physicians, but
it did express concern about the mysterious vanishing Pain FAQ and its new,
hard-line replacement. “The AMA will work with the DEA to address physician
concerns that an interim policy statement published by the agency in November
could
interfere with the way doctors prescribe opioid analgesic medications to some
patients,” the report said. “Doctors worry that the statement could make it
illegal to write multiple pain medication prescriptions for a patient on the
day of a visit and evaluation. Physicians also worry that they no longer
could
legally write directions for dispensing additional medication on future,
specified dates.”

AAPS’ Serkes pronounced herself “optimistic but cautious” about the AMA
pronouncement. “I hope it’s not just for show,” she said. “A couple of years
ago
the AMA came out with similar pronouncements, they said they were going to
make
this an issue, but then did nothing. Something has to happen now. We are at
the point where — and it is painful to say this — we are recommending to
doctors that they not prescribe opioids in treating pain. Not that doctors
are
waiting to hear from us. I quietly hear from doctors on a regular basis that
they
will not treat pain patients for fear of the consequences. That doesn’t make
the news, it doesn’t have a high profile, but there is another doctor who
will
not be treating pain patients.”

The battle over heavy-handed DEA and Justice Department regulation of the
practice of pain medicine is far from over, but now, at least, it appears the
battle has been joined by the medical mainstream.

(Meanwhile, Dr. Hurwitz sits in federal detention awaiting sentencing and an
appeal. That appeal will cost $60,000 that Hurwitz doesn’t have and needs to
raise by mid-January, said Reynolds. Reynolds and the Pain Relief Network
have
established a Hurwitz Defense Fund. People interested in contributing can
send
checks made out to Pain Relief Network — write “Hurwitz Defense Fund” in the
memo — and send to PRN at P.O. Box 231054, New York, NY, 10023.
Contributions are tax-deductible. Let them know you heard about it from
DRCNet.)

Surgeons who play video games three hours a week have
37 percent fewer errors and accomplish tasks 27
percent faster, he says, basing his observation on
results of tests using the video game Super Monkey

Seasons greetings,

I wish all of you happy holidsys and looking forward to what the New Year will bring. For me it will be many things, one of them is the financial freedom (and many problems it solves) that I have waiting for me. It is no accident, it was years and countless hours doing research to find just the right company to invest in, a “Microsoft of”… a company that owns a technology – there have been a number, superconductor company American Superconductor (AMSC) is one, BLTI (Biolase, dental lasers) is another – good company, early yet. But I then found ATCO, American Technology Corp  – this is a gift, from me to you – an opportunity, for “informational purposes only”, do or don’t do with it as you will. I am as certain as certain can be that this company will be doing 10X, 100X and perhaps 1000X returns in 1-2, 3-5 and 5-10 years respectively – or there abouts, maybe half as good in twice as long, maybe twice as good in half as long – that I can’t tell you. I can tell you it is my ticket out of here, if you are interested and do stocks or maybe you just want to open that ibogaine clinic or have a kid you want to put through college but don’t have the money… well ATCO is for you. I have a neighbor that bought 45 shares – I told her to HOLD, as the price is going to go wild (better than TASER/tasr). because the products (LRAD, HSS, Neoplanar, SFT -particularly HSS) is going to have an effect on society world-wide like say Coca-Cola or Microsoft – to be able to do things with sound that have never been able to be done before, in fact deemed impossible. ATCO is the next generation in acoustics, a new generation of products, a new paradigm in sound (yadda, yadda, you get the point) and it is very real, not vapor and not “we have this great tech but need to develop it…”, it is here, it is now, they have products and sales are growing 400% for FY 04 (not announced yet) and increasing on only LRAD sales, HSS sales have not really started, there is some NeoPlanar and engineered solutions – ie the 5MC system for Aircraft Carrier flight decks.

IMO, what is going to happen with the stock is going to be a number of what is called “splits”, where because of growth, bigger company, increased sales and price of the stock, the price goes up and up, eventually they issue splits, some number of shares for each share you own. Generally these are 2:1, 3:1 but eBay had a 10:1, it didn’t take long for 10 times the number of shares to catch up to their original price. This kind of thing doesn’t happen with every company, very, very few but ATCO has all the pieces and it just started moving UP on a new 4.9 million dollar LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) sale to the Military – it is one product has a non-lethal capability, it is a long range megaphone of sorts, directed sound and very clear, something like having head-phones on, by far most of the use is just communicating, to talk to a crowd or small boat, or at a check-point, to clear a bridge or building at range, it is NOT approved or intended for use at ultra-high volumes at close range on people short of being used along with lethal force in defense of warships, suicide car bombers racing towards a check-point… to prevent the use of lethal force. For instance in Iraq they shoot warning shots with guns, if the car doesn’t stop they sometimes kill the occupants, sometimes they are just innocent people that got scared and tried to run, maybe they missed the check-point sign (ever miss a street sign? it happens)… Standard speakers are only good 30 yards, LRAD is good and clear over land to over 300 yards, 700 yards over water – it is not a non-lethal device at those ranges, just a communication device, as a non-lethal is within 100 yards. So, I guess I am looking at the brighter side, it will prevent some harm, maybe someone thinks it is Big Brotherish – well buy some stock and speak your mind at the Shareholders meeting (and make money while you are at it), PETA did that about 20 years ago with US Surgical, bought a block of stock so they could have a bigger voice in animal experimentation at the company.

Anyway, for whatever reasons, you want or need a bunch of money, ATCO is going to split and split and split, that 45 shares will be worth hundreds and then thousands of shares, not unlike Microsoft but starting much sooner – 2 weeks ago I made my last buy at 6.55, the stock closed Thursday at 10.22, it is a technical break-out on anumbe of factors, the large Army order and 25 million in financing.. If you want in, my advice, buy all you can, don’t wait for the price to pull back, if it does (pull back) buy more. Then sit and hold, be patient and don’t mind the crazy movement, it is likely to have a lot of swings in price – so if you go down a bit, don’t worry, it is more likely than not you will have 10-100-1000X your money back, in time. Don’t wait either, this stock has just attracted a lot of attention.

Just to share my opportunity, I am not out to convince you of anything and won’t gain, exept in the knowledge that someone changed thier life… do your own research, it is your money – but to just say this again, yes, I am as sure as sure can be, or I sure wouldn’t be posting this.

Brett

Some info to read and good luck – IMO, opportunities like this, don’t get better than this – it is as good as it gets, I just can’t not share it with you. ATCO will likely be or be something close to the stock of the decade – with just a little bit of luck. As usual, it is your money do your own due diligence (dd), I know what the stock is going to do but you need to know it for yourself and invest for yourself, it is your money. ATCO has years of growth, so if you see a quick double and want to cash out, you could have missed millions – even on 100-couple hundred shares.

LRAD is a long range acoustic device, a directional speaker, 15-30 degree beam

HSS is Hypersonic Sound – getting hit with one is like hearing virtual headphones, it is a marketers dream – there is an emerging advertising product called “Digital Signage” – ATCO is working with SONY (who wants a piece of ATCO) and others on new products. HSS can make a beam or bubble, tube of sound, or a spot of sound off a back wall – like a flashlight, you don’t see the beam, you don’t hear an HSS beam till it hits something, range is 150 yards

NeoPlanar and SFT are new flat ribbon speaker technologies, They are using Neoplanar speakers or wide area, semi-directional sound, emergency notification, hangar and flight decks.Neo’s and SFT can run at full volume without distortion – ie Neo’s are capable of 133DB, a 1000 watt speaker can run at 1000 watts, at 160 degrees C (not F!), continuously. Basically 1/8th inch thick or less, no cone, no magnets, no distortion…

SNOWE APPLAUDS PROGRESS OF LONG RANGE ACOUSTIC DEVICE DEVELOPED BY MAINE SMALL BUSINESS

WASHINGTON, D.C. ñ A strong supporter of the Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) developed by American Technologies Corporation in Topsham, U.S. Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine) today hailed the progress of the company as its acoustics and force protection technology were employed by security personnel at the Republican National Convention, the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, and in ongoing military operations in the Middle East as additional security measures upon U.S. Naval ships.

ìI am so pleased with the success of the long range acoustic device system developed by American Technologies – a Maine small business – particularly as it aids our nationís military in their ongoing operations. As American Technologies continues to redefine the advanced acoustic technology market, I will continue to work with them to secure future opportunities, both militarily and commercially, that will further demonstrate their excellent work,î said Snowe, who is chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business.

Long Range Acoustic Devices allow hailing distances that often exceed 700 meters over water to approaching vessels. The devices transmit concentrated audio waves to a specific target, thereby maintaining the strength of the sound wave, rather than dissipating the sound waves over a vast medium in all directions. LRADs fulfill the requirement of the U.S. fleet to warn approaching vessels at significant ranges to alter their suspected routes through speaking directly into a microphone or by the use of prerecorded messages available in almost any language.

LRADs have been installed on Naval ships stationed in the Middle East in response to the terrorist bombing of the USS Cole. Snowe, who contacted the Navyís Chief of Naval Research Rear Admiral Jay Cohen in January to convey her support for the technology being deployed with military forces in Iraq, has been working with the Navy in outfitting LRADs on the entire U.S. fleet, in addition to its current domestic security uses as demonstrated at the Republican National Convention in New York City this week. Additionally, the LRADs are currently employed by some private ferry and cruise ship lines, including the Queen Mary 2.

ìAs I have witnessed firsthand, the LRAD technology is an innovative means to maintain civil order and control. From the Republican Convention in New York to the Olympic Games in Athens, the security teams for these national and international events were greatly assisted by the LRAD system in managing and communicating with the large-scale crowds. I commend the ingenuity of American Technologies as they continue to expand the uses of the LRAD system to the commercial market,î continued Snowe.

American Technologies Corporation, with facilities in both San Diego, CA and Topsham, Maine, currently contracts its LRAD technology specifically for government and military applications. The concept of using this technology as a force protection tool was originally conceived within the Advanced Technology directorate at Bath Iron Works. Systems engineering, new product development and refinement of current acoustic products are all completed at the Topsham facility.

Seasons greetings,

I wish all of you happy holidsys and looking forward to what the New Year will bring. For me it will be many things, one of them is the financial freedom (and many problems it solves) that I have waiting for me. It is no accident, it was years and countless hours doing research to find just the right company to invest in, a “Microsoft of”… a company that owns a technology – there have been a number, superconductor company American Superconductor (AMSC) is one, BLTI (Biolase, dental lasers) is another – good company, early yet. But I then found ATCO, American Technology Corp  – this is a gift, from me
