Gaza March: http://www.gazafreedommarch.org/article.php?list=type&type=416


The International Coalition to End the Illegal Siege of Gaza formed after Israel's 22-day assault on Gaza in winter 2008-09.We are a diverse coalition that represents all faiths (and no faith) and is focused on human rights in conformance with international law.

To mark the fact that is has been one year since the Israeli attack, the coalition is mobilizing an international contingent for a nonviolent march alongside the people of Gaza on Dec. 31, to end the illegal blockade.

The coalition conceives this march as part of a broader strategy to end the Israeli occupation by targeting nonviolently its flagrant violations of international law from the house demolitions and settlements to the curfews and torture.

Dr. Robert Auerbach

Author of the new book "Deception and Abuse at the Fed," Auerbach said today: "The Federal Reserve sends money to academia and creates a terrible conflict of interest. If you talk about the Federal Reserve, you should not be on its payroll."
An excerpt of Auerbach's book is available online: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-auerbach .

Roger Waters, From the Final Cut (Pink Floyd)

This was my earliest exposure to some unique songwriting. Outside of the three minute hit, this was more panoramic audio (and later video) styling. This was when a song could actually create visuals in your head instead of today when everything has to be spelled out for you in a video.

Utah, Land of the. . .

I always said that Utah was, geographically, one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I still feel that way, but the line was sort of a backhanded compliment suggesting the culture and prominent ideology had room for much improvement.

I must say that Salt Lake City has changed a LOT since I last lived here. There is still the amazing geography and my amazing family. But the people are changing too.

Sadly, there are still some people who use political positions to dominate others, and I hope to address that with some of my work here. I will be writing more on my blog and possibly doing a radio program here in the near future.

I am still seeking full time work, but I think things will work out!

Best wishes to you all,

Knut a.k.a.'Scott'~)

Don't Stop Till You Get Enough

It is a fool who believes he only has so much grief or love to give. For these things spring eternal like hope and doubt. We must be the masters of our lives, lest we drown in the sorrows of yesterday

Salt Lake City

Image
After a decade in Seattle we are moving to Salt Lake. There are some personal reasons I won't go into here, but we essentially wish to be close to family and to the nature we group up surrounded by.

I do not know when and if we shall return to Seattle, but it has always had my love since I visited my Uncle Frank in 1976 on Queen Anne Hill. I was 5 and was stunned by the water and the layout of the city.

Liam was almost born in our place out on Alki. V was born in our place on Roosevelt and these kids will now get to have a close relationship with cousins, uncles, aunts, and grandparents.

If you have the desire to chat, just reply here and I will find a way to contact you.

Best wishes to all,

The Lindsley Family

Open Letter To American Carmakers

Remember a time when a car show was a glimpse into the future?

Innovation was oozing from the best scientists and engineers. Working on making safer, faster, and more appealing vehicles with every generation. But somewhere along the way you got knee deep into the gadget and gizmo phase and you have yet to see beyond that. Cars ceased being prescient and they became only cool.

So for the sake of your future stop using failed business models and minor adjustments to fix your car lines. Stop using planned obsolescence for reliable income after the initial sale of the car. Stop making cars while blindly missing the leaps in technological breakthroughs that would make your cars seem as if they were out of the future again.

A few examples:

- The Rocky Mountain Institutehas discovered a material as strong as the steel you currently use, but that weigh much less automatically providing great savings in fuel costs. http://www.rmi.org/
- Gizmaghas regular reports on new engines, fuels, and methods o…

Skies, Lies, and Borders

This caught my eye. It is not some video of the UFO's in the skies, but of the former Canadian Defense minister talking about how foolishly the Americans are dealing with this issue. I often wonder what the U.S government knows about aliens. You can see a whole TON of interesting videos on you tube.




No, Seriously. . .
