It’s a given, the USA could obliterate North Korea, however, as Steve Bannon, Trump’s outgoing advisor said, ‘…there are no military options.”

The consequences of war would be unimaginably horrific for both sides of the 38th parallel. The millions of casualties and wholesale destruction of cities like Seoul and Pyongyang could never be justified.

So how does this end?

Or do we simply learn to live with a nuclear-armed and missile-capable North Korea?

Successive US presidents have promised that would never happen, and yet it might already be a reality. Kim Jong-un seems to be betting his regime on the hope his newly developed firepower will offer a guarantee of protection, rather than an invitation to disaster :: Read the full article »»»»

Dressed For Death, Pia Interlandi’s Garments for the Grave

Dressed For Death: Garments for the Grave by Pia Interlandi
In almost every culture, death is shrouded with ritual, the entombment of the dead is most commonly preceded by its dressing. In Islam it’s a white cotton cloth, Judaism’s Tachrichim bindings and in the west’s it’s a tradition of grave clothes, solid black woollen suit or head to toe frock. The corporeal commonality is the preparation of a dead body for it’s journey to the other-side.
In an increasingly secular society, it’s a wonderfilled thing to see an artisan reaching back through these traditions, seeking out something deeper from the aesthetically pleasing. Despite clothing being almost exclusively about covering outside of the body, Ms Interlandi asks the most intimate question of the dead, where and what is soul? :: Read the full article »»»»

North Korea ATTACKS Japan? South Korea on VITAL THREAT Alert WATCHCON 4!

North Korea Launches Missile at Japan ...oopsSeems emergency response workers in the Japanese city of Yokohama are a little trigger happy after mistakenly announcing the launch of a North Korean missile to 40,000 followers on Twitter.. The city, south of Tokyo, prematurely fired its tweet just before noon (local time), announcing “North Korea has launched a missile” with blank spaces to indicate the exact time.

Apparently a worker at the Yokohama Crisis Management Centre had prepared a draft Tweet that was to be released IF North Korea launched a missile attack on the city. geez… who hasn’t hit the publish button to early, and mistakenly sent something live. The city retracted the tweet about 20 minutes later and apologised to followers of @yokohama_saigai, the official said. Japan is on full alert ahead of an expected mid-range missile launch by North Korea, with Patriot missiles stationed in its capital to protect the 30 million people who live there.

TENSIONS RISE! South Korean and US forces have raised their alert status to “vital threat” before an expected North Korean missile test, with tensions high in the run-up to a key anniversary. Any launch could coincide with visits by US secretary of state John Kerry and NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who will both be in South Korea this Friday.

The North last week told foreign diplomats in Pyongyang they had until April 10 to consider evacuation, fuelling speculation of a launch between Wednesday and April 15 birthday celebrations for late founder Kim Il-Sung. On Tuesday the North reiterated a warning that the peninsula was headed for “thermo-nuclear” war and advised foreigners to consider leaving South Korea.

South Korean foreign minister Yun Byung-Se told parliament the launch could take place “any time” and warned Pyongyang it risked triggering a fresh round of UN sanctions. There is growing global concern that sky-high tensions might trigger an incident that could swiftly escalate. UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon said during a visit to Rome that he had spoken to the Chinese leadership to try to calm tensions, and would discuss the issue with US President Barack Obama :: Read the full article »»»»

CHRONIC FAT OBESITYI’ve been wondering for a while just how long it would take for Obesity to move from being a medical issue to a social one, it seems we are right now on that cusp. Obesity has had so much bad publicity – deservingly so – over the past 5 years that the obese are striking back, no longer satisfied with the social stigma, and  often unable to lose the weight, the obese are becoming a large majority.

Fat activist Jackie Wykes recently posted a volatile question via theconversation.edu.au, asking How Anti Obesity Campaigns Re-inforce Stigma. Ms Wykes says “By focusing on weight as the problem and weight loss as the solution, social and economic inequalities are made invisible.” I’d reckon that in this country at least – and the world generally –  supermarkets would disagree entirely, never have groceries – fresh included – ever been so inexpensive, there is literally NO excuse today for BAD EATING HABITS!

According to Ms Wykes, health disparities between groups are blamed on individuals for not making healthy choices, ignoring the ways that the choices available to comfortably middle-class white Australians are often very different to those available to people on low incomes, to recent immigrants, or to Indigenous Australians.

This rhetoric clearly scirts the issue – yes obese people have rights, more rights than drug addicts, less than breast cancer patients, and about the same as rights as smokers –  in my mind the formula is pretty simple, EAT LESS! If you wish to make the argument complicated – it’s still diet based for the majority of obesity – then EAT CAREFULLY! :: Read the full article »»»»


REVOLUTE: Political Ambition! Julian Assange to Run For Australian Senate

Posted: March 21st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Socially Engineerd, That Human Condition | Tags: , , | Comments Off on REVOLUTE: Political Ambition! Julian Assange to Run For Australian Senate

Julian AssangeWikiLeaks has announced its founder and leader Julian Assange is planning to run for a seat in the Australian Senate. Julian Assange is in England awaiting possible extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over allegations that he sexually assaulted two women in 2010. He is currently on bail waiting for a British Supreme Court decision on his appeal against the extradition.

But WikiLeaks says despite his legal predicament, Assange is eligible to run for the Upper House. ”We have discovered that it is possible for Julian Assange to run for the Australian Senate while detained,” WikiLeaks said via Twitter. ”Julian has decided to run.”

WikiLeaks said it would also be running a candidate against Prime Minister Julia Gillard in her seat of Lalor. ”The name of the Lalor candidate and the state Julian will run for will be announced at the appropriate time,” it said. Read the full article »»»»
