MEDITATION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE – LOVING THE EARTH
This meditation came to me a week ago in meditation. I often let my consciousness and breath follow my spine up and down. Recently I learned a figure 8 breathing visualization from Kate Sutherland which helps to ground oneself.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, eyes closed and your attention on your breath. Sitting or lying down works too, but standing is the easiest way to start.
Inhale slowly and bring your awareness to your heart.
Exhale slowly and imagine your breath is traveling the front of your body and entering to the center of the Earth.
Inhale slowly and imagine you are drawing up energy from the center of the Earth, up the back of your body, and into your heart.
Exhale slowly and imagine that your breath is going from your heart up the front of your body as high as it can go – to the stars, heaven, the sun – whatever works for you.
Inhale slowly and imagine you are drawing energy down from the sky, down the back of your body and into your heart.
Continue breathing the same shape. Next time you exhale, imagine your breath is travelling down to the earth, to the reserves of oil and coal and gas. Imagine a protective sheet of shimmering light around them so they stay in the ground. See all the wells and pumps disappear from the reserves.
Inhale slowly and imagine you are drawing energy up from the Earth, into your heart.
Exhale slowly and imagine your breath is going from your heart up towards the sky, to the atmosphere. Visualize that you can see the carbon dioxide molecules (one carbon, 2 oxygen) and you are touching them gently, loving them and letting them transform into oxygen and carbon.
Inhale back to your heart, bringing the carbon atoms with you.
Exhale and imagine you are bringing your breath and the carbon atoms down down to the center of the Earth. Return the carbon. Smoothly pet tight the mines, the drilling holes.
Inhale up to your heart. Exhale up to the atmosphere. Love away the carbon dioxide.

Only if you consider 24% of Americans an “overwhelming” number of people.
Via CNS News:
Recent polls put climate change low on the list of Americans’ pressing concerns, but that’s not how EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy sees it:
“From all the recent public opinion work out there on climate change, what stands out to me is this: First, people overwhelmingly consider climate change a problem, and they want action. And second, what’s even more impressive, is the overwhelming support specifically for EPA action to curb carbon pollution from power plants.”
McCarthy spoke Friday at a Conference on Energy and the Environment at Georgetown University. [...]
Likewise, a Gallup poll in March 2014 found that only 24 percent of Americans worried a great deal about climate change. In that poll, both “climate change” and “quality of the environment” were near the bottom of a list of 15 issues Gallup asked Americans to rate. Only “race relations” ranked lower than those two issues in Gallup’s March 6-9 survey.
Is Obama still claiming he’s the most pro-Israel president in history?
Via Times Of Israel:
Senior US officials said Friday that a request by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to meet with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, was denied by the Obama administration.
According to a report in Ynet, the officials said the administration was settling scores with Ya’alon for statements he made in January in which he called Kerry “obsessive” and “messianic” about Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, which came to an abrupt halt in April.
Not wanting to harm defense ties with Israel, Ya’alon’s meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was allowed to proceed as planned, according to the officials cited in the report.
Ya’alon met with Hagel on Tuesday, during which the defense minister said he voiced Israel’s concerns about the direction of talks between the P5+1 world powers and Iran on its nuclear program. The two also spoke about the conflicts in Iraq and Syria.
Before his trip, Ya’alon sought to smooth over a war of words between some US and Israeli officials that erupted last week when Israeli ministers attacked Kerry for misinterpreted remarks linking the rise of extremist Islam to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Kerry spoke at an event marking the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha at the State Department, where he said it was “imperative” to restart stalled Israeli-Palestinian talks, since the conflict was helping the Islamic State recruit new members.
Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, in turn, indicated Kerry was using an anti-Semitic canard, while Communications Minister Gilad Erdan said the secretary showed very little understanding of the region.
Well done, Senator.

With first lady Michelle Obama at his side, Democratic Sen. Mark Udall embarrassingly botched one of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most famous quotes.
“In America, at our best, we judge people by the content of their color,” Udall, locked in a tight race with Republican Cory Gardner, said during a Thursday rally.
After groans from the crowd, Udall corrected himself: “We judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.”

Comrade Mayor may not be a doctor but he did stay at Holiday Inn last night…
Shockingly, AI fails to condemn the rioters.
… This altercation was one of many disturbing encounters enumerated in an Amnesty International report released Thursday night that paints a damning portrayal of the Ferguson police force, which it accuses of committing numerous human rights abuses. The report was deeply skeptical of whether Ferguson cop Darren Wilson was justified in the killing of unarmed Michael Brown, criticized Missouri law it said violates international standards and condemned the local police response for shooting tear gas and rubber bullets, intimidating protesters and restricting residents’ right to peaceful assembly.
“The shooting of Michael Brown has highlighted on a national level the persistent and widespread pattern of racially discriminatory treatment by law enforcement officers across the United States, including unjustified stops and searches, ill treatment and excessive, and sometimes lethal, use of force,” found Amnesty International, which investigates reports of human rights violations in some of the world’s most dangerous locations. Indeed, the report continued, shortly after Brown was shot six times and killed, another young African American man, Kajieme Powell, was also shot dead. “Police claims that he was brandishing a knife were not borne out by available video footage of the shooting.”
The report starts with the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown. Many details of that day are hotly disputed and clouded by conflicting witness statements, but one fact is beyond dispute: Brown was not armed. Consequently, he was “unlikely to have presented a serious threat to the life of the police officer,” the report said. “As such, this calls into question whether the use of lethal force was justified, and the circumstances of the killing must be urgently clarified.”
When will we hear from Obama?
Via NY Post:
A hatchet-swinging psycho with Islamic militant leanings turned a busy Queens street corner into a scene of bloody chaos Thursday, chopping a rookie cop in the back of the head and slicing a second officer on the arm before two other officers shot him dead.
In opening fire on the madman, cops accidentally wounded a bystander, authorities said.
Officer Kenneth Healey, 25, had just four months on the job when Zale Thompson, 32, of Queens — a “scholarly” but “weird” recent convert to Islam — fractured the back of the cop’s skull with one swing of a blue-handled hatchet at about 2 p.m. in Jamaica.
A 29-year-old woman walking a half-block away was struck in the back by a stray police bullet and was in stable condition, according to police sources.
The NYPD is investigating whether Islamic extremism played a role in the attack, which left the rookie in serious but stable condition Thursday night.
“Helicopters, big military will be useless on their own soil,” Thompson raged in a private Facebook post, Fox News reported.
“They will not be able to defeat our people if we use guerilla warfare. Attack their weak flanks,” he added.
“There’s nothing we know at this time that would indicate that [Islamic terrorism] is the case,” Police Commissioner William Bratton said at a press conference at Jamaica Hospital.
Two other items of note that should be out there.
The police officers were stopped by a “freelance photographer” to take their picture, and so were standing still as a group on the sidewalk, then Thompson ran up to strike. One would hope that this photographer person was also checked out by police.
Thompson’s friends on Facebook include black power adherents, members of the Nation of Islam and Black Panthers, including people who praise Khalid Muhammad, have posted pictures of Ferguson actions, and this protest in NYC with a banner from Revolutionary Communists:

A controversial monument of the Ten Commandments at the state Capitol has been destroyed, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
The granite monument, which was privately funded stands 6 feet tall and was placed at the Capitol in Nov. 2012
Oklahoma Highway Patrol says around 7 p.m. Thursday troopers responded to an abandoned vehicle which was driven into the statue.
Investigators with OHP have the suspect vehicle in custody and are continuing to investigate evidence surrounding the ordeal.
“We’ll process the scene and suspect vehicle to further the investigation in hopes of locating the responsible party”, stated Patrol spokesperson CPT George Brown.
In September, an Oklahoma County judge threw out a lawsuit that wanted the removal of the Ten Commandments monument at the statehouse steps.
The lawsuit by the ACLU claimed the monument violates the state constitution’s ban against using public property to support church or religion.
And no, this isn’t proof of liberal media bias.
CNN’s Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin.
“Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize,” Costello said in a statement to POLITICO.
On Wednesday, before playing a tape in which Bristol Palin describes an alleged altercation at a party in Wasilla, Alaska, Costello said, “This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.”
In the tape, Palin is heard describing what happened to her after she confronted someone she accused of pushing her sister.
“So we were in a limo. I walk back up. “Did you push my sister?” And some guy gets up, pushes me down on the grass, drags me across the grass. “You slut, you f—ing c—, you f—ing this.” I get back up, he pushes me down on the grass again,” Palin said, according to the recording. “And he pulls me by my f—ing feet. And he’s the one that’s leaving and I have my 5-year-old, they took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f—ing shoes, and I’m f—ing just left here?”
After the tape, Costello said “the long bleep was my favorite part.”
“We should point out that no charges were filed in this incident and in a Sept. 19th Facebook post, Sarah Palin defended her daughter, writing part — writing in part, quote, ‘I love my Bristol. I have to say, this is a proud mama. My kids’ defense of my family makes my heart soar.’ You can thank me later,” Costello said.

Via Daily Mail:
Craig Spencer, the doctor whose confirmed Ebola diagnosis sent New York City into a tailspin on Thursday, successfully cleared the U.S. government’s newest ‘enhanced’ screening protocols when he returned to the U.S.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Spencer, who was in the nation of Guinea treating Ebola patients as part of Doctors Without Borders, passed inspection six days before showing symptoms and checking himself into Bellevue Hospital where he remains in isolation.
‘The healthcare worker had returned through JFK Airport on Oct. 17 and participated in the enhanced screening for all returning travelers from these countries’ affected by the virus, the agency said in a statement.
‘He went through multiple layers of screening and did not have a fever or other symptoms of illness.’

(Reuters) – North Korea will bar entry to foreigners on tourist trips from Friday because of worries over the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, operators of tours to the isolated country told Reuters.
At least 4,877 people have died in the world’s worst recorded outbreak of Ebola, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, with nearly 10,000 cases recorded by Oct. 19, though the true toll could be three times as much.
“We have just received official news from our partners in the DPRK that, as of tomorrow, tourists from any country, regardless of where they have recently visited, will not be permitted to enter,” said Gareth Johnson of Young Pioneer Tours, a travel company based in China that runs tours in North Korea.
DPRK stands for the North’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights and stocking up on riot gear to prepare for a grand jury’s decision about whether to charge a white police officer who fatally shot a black 18-year-old in suburban St. Louis.
The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial for the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.
Police and protesters have repeatedly clashed since the shooting, which prompted a national conversation about race and police tactics. Images of officers in riot gear and armored vehicles confronting protesters have drawn widespread criticism.
Many protesters want Darren Wilson indicted for murder. Grand jury proceedings are secret, but legal analysts say recently leaked information about Wilson’s testimony to investigators may be an attempt to prepare the public for the possibility that he might not be charged.
C’mon, he’s just celebrating multiculturalism.
RADICAL cleric Anjem Choudary sparked fury today by declaring he ‘doesn’t accept’ that British law is valid in the UK.
The 46-year-old hate preacher made the extraordinary statement when asked if jihadist fighters returning from Syria should have their passports confiscated and be charged under anti-terror laws.
Choudary blasted: “I don’t accept British law. If you have a law, you need to apply it universally. These laws are only being applied against Muslims.
“This [anti-terror legislation] is purely being hyped-up to support the bombing campaign that is taking place in Iraq and Syria.”
He also spoke of his support for Islamic State (ISIS) and claimed a ban on jihadists returning to Britain would ‘alienate’ the Muslim community.
He added: “If these guys have actually not committed any crime in England, then why are we stopping them returning?
“I think it’s a very ill thought-out policy, I don’t think it will work.
“I think it will disenfranchise the Muslim community here, I think it would be a cause of further radicalisation in this country.”
Accounts operated by the Islamic State Media Group are spamming Twitter today with a message that seemingly takes responsibility for both terrorist attacks in Canada and the one in NYC yesterday where a group of NYPD officers were assaulted by a man with an ax.
“An Axe attack in New York
The kiss of a hunting rifle in Ottawa
The kiss of being run over by a car
In your heart we attack at you”
UPDATE: This account claims the attack is retribution for attacks on ISIS by America and allied nations

Newington, Conn. (WTNH) — Bah Humbug! It’s the wrong holiday, but some say the grinch came early and took Halloween from the kids at two Newington Elementary Schools. The principals at Ruth Chaffee Elementary and Anna Reynolds Elementary say leave the costumes at home.
That means 8-year-old Alyssa Montano can’t bring her pointed hat and broom to the classroom.
“What did you think when you found out you can’t celebrate Halloween at school?” we asked.
“It was stupid and weird because they shouldn’t take it away from other people,” said Alyssa.
Her mom, Lori, says she was the one to have to break the bad news to her daughter.
“She’s disappointed, very disappointed because she has been doing it all the way up to this year,” said Lori. “Now they are not doing it this year.”
Parents say they got letters from the principals stating that since not everyone celebrates Halloween, it should not be celebrated. Lori Montano says it’s taking political correctness too far.
“I think it’s stupid, it’s not fair for the kids and I mean if some people don’t want to participate, then don’t participate, but they shouldn’t take it away from all the kids,” said Lori.
