You’re sitting in a crowded room for a seminar on an interesting topic that could potentially help you change your life for the better. You’re really excited to learn so you sit back, relax, and wait expectantly. The speaker is called on stage.
The speaker is sweating and stammering. He’s having a hard time explaining. You can’t understand the topic anymore, and you notice that the rest of the audience looks confused as well.
When the speaker cannot effectively communicate the point he wishes to make, confusion and misunderstanding inevitably result. In a world where communication is key, public speaking has become an important — yet still scarce — skill to have. Continue reading 5 Hacks To Improve Your Public Speaking Skills Within Minutes

How do lightworkers and social activists divide their labor?
We tend not to do both. Why is that?
I can only speak for myself. We none of us can do it all. We do tend to divide down into specialized efforts. I don’t see how it could be any other way.
For me, the division is around what must be done immediately and what, longer term. Continue reading Lightworker and Activist: Where’s the Divide?

Is the world economy a closed system or an open system? In other words, are the world’s financial elite conducting transactions with off-planet entities, enslaving the human race to unseen actors?
The world’s people are held in perpetual bondage to the fiat currency money masters who have saddled us with absolutely insurmountable debt obligations which are mathematically impossible to repay. At present, the CIA estimates the total global debt to be nearing $90 trillion. Continue reading Former Wall St. Banker Suggests Global Debt May Not be Owned by Humans

In an effort to help curb some of the strains that disposable plastic puts on landfills, France is set to become the first country to ban all disposable cutlery products. By 2020, any disposable cutlery items will be required to be made from 50% biologically-sourced materials. By 2025, the cutlery will have to be made of 60% biologically sourced materials that can be composted at home. 
Plastic materials are not biodegradable, often sitting in landfills or make their way into oceans. As they break down and become smaller and smaller, they can often find their way into food sources of local wildlife, potentially harming the environment and ecosystems. The plastic material can also potentially ruin their habitats, displacing and endangering many treasured animals. Continue reading France to Become First Country to Ban Disposable Plastic Cups and Plates

Humanity has been doing lots of status-quo reviews, and most likely you have had your own on a very personal level.
The Mercury Retrograde, ending Wednesday, has been an excellent time to reassess your life circumstance and decide what you would want to keep or discard going forward.

(ANTIMEDIA) Since the Syrian refugee crisis began and terrorist attacks became the norm throughout the Western world, there has been a drastic change in the immigration debate.
The rise of Donald Trump in America has galvanized the mindset of fear that took over following the San Bernardino and Orlando shootings. Europe has also struggled to adapt as governments declare perpetual states of emergency and the popularity of nationalist parties spikes.

The Pivot to Asia, which is really the US militarization of the Pacific Ocean in preparation for war with China and Russia, is a highly disturbing trend. Not so much attention has been paid to it, yet it is an arena which will determine the future balance of world power.
While most eyes are on Syria, Yemen, the European migrant crisis, and other trouble in the Middle East, the US is continuing a massive and unprecedented buildup all throughout the Pacific – the biggest military buildup in any area since World War 2.
Meanwhile, tension between the US and China has been steadily increasing, with the dispute over the South China Sea becoming strained, and China deliberately thumbing its diplomatic nose at Obama earlier this month, by refusing to roll out the red carpet for him at the G20 meeting in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China. China and Russia have also begun conducting naval war games in the South China Sea. Continue reading Pivot to Asia: Ongoing U.S. Militarization of Pacific an Alarming Trend

Three years ago, Utah Congressmen Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz came up with a proposal called the Utah Public Lands Initiative. This proposal would turn more than a quarter of the Ute Tribe’s land into oil and drilling zones.
Now, after pining away for three years, the initiative has transformed into HR5780 and will be pushed through the US House of Representatives in just a few weeks.
