#Yemen Today: A Plea From Their Hearts. (incl. medical responses re: radiation poisoning -see links-, & letter to Foreign Sec.)

                               "This makes me scared a lot about the weird silence"

Quote: "American Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) states, "There's an American imprint on every civilian life lost in Yemen," according to CNN. Under the administration of President Barack Obama the US has sold more weapons to Saudi Arabia than any other administration. America also assisted the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen (with) intelligence and refueling planes during airstrikes. "If you talk (to) Yemenis, they will tell you, this is not perceived to be a Saudi bombing campaign. This is perceived to be a U.S. bombing campaign," Murphy said."...

A Letter to the Foreign Secretary.

Quote; "The war in Yemen is brutal, and all sides stand accused of violating International Humanitarian Law. Our government is allowing British weapons to be sold to Saudi Arabia. Saudi airstrikes have destroyed food supplies, schools, hospitals and homes.
With their communities under attack, more than 21 million people in Yemen are in need of aid – more than any other country in the world. Over 3 million people have been forced to flee their homes. Children are being brought into clinics weak and clinging onto life because they don’t have enough food and water.
Boris Johnson has the power to do the right thing. As Foreign Secretary, he can immediately suspend arms exports to Saudi Arabia, and support an independent investigation into International Humanitarian Law violations.
We have a duty to protect people – and our obligations under the Arms Trade Treaty make that clear. We must put a stop to UK supplied arms destroying lives in Yemen – please take action now."

"Barbarism and Rank Hypocrisy; The Allies Finally go Beyond-The-Pale": #Syria #Libya #Yemen #Afghanistan #Iraq #Egypt




Quote; "UNITED NATIONS, Sept 26 – Britain, France and the United States lashed out at Russia yesterday over the worsening carnage in Syria as Syrian and Russian warplanes pounded Aleppo in one of the heaviest bombing raids of the five-year war.
US Ambassador Samantha Power accused Russia of “barbarism” during a Security Council emergency meeting called to demand that Moscow rein in its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and halt the intense air strikes.
“Instead of pursuing peace, Russia and Assad make war,” Power said. “What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counter-terrorism. It is barbarism.”
At least 124 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in the bombardment of rebel-held eastern Aleppo since the army on Thursday announced an operation to take it, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said." Go to: http://www.justreadonline.com/2016/09/26/us-condemns-russian-airstrikes-aleppo-barbaric/

*Barbarism"? When ones allies are apparently using nuclear weapons (an international war-crime),on the poorest of the poor? When one is knowingly allowing the people of that country no aid and succor in order to cover up the crime? When one has oneself already perpetrated nuclear war by using weapons and ordnance manufactured using the toxic by-products of the industry required to manufacture nuclear weapons to bank-roll ones scramble for ownership of the dwindling non-renewable resources (the consequences of which one has consistently conspired to ensure are never reported in the mainstream media)?



See; "Depleted Uranium "The Progressive Review" Go to: https://gkhales.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/depleted-uranium-progressive-review.html & "Editorial Balance (re: Syria and the use of W.M.Ds)" Go to: https://gkhales.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/editorial-balance-resyria-and-use-of.html
(Nb. The subject of the  "Black" and "Grey" Flagging of events including the use of chemical agents and other munitions on the Syrian population is a complicated one I do not intend to investigate here -although it lurks somewhere in the miasma-, however like 9/11 the evidence is stacking up and again it doesn't look good)

None of which even bears on the subject of a narrative that consistently ignores the constraints of international law and flouts flagrant hypocrisy such as; “we have to insist that all parties recognize a common humanity and that nations end proxy wars that fuel disorder,” Barack Obama, or the countless instances where it has been The Coalition that has been creating the collateral damage.

Not that any of this should make us apologists for "Gangster Putin" however one does not extinguish a fire by consistently hosing it down with raw crude. "Exceptional America" the only country to have (officially), used nuclear weapons in anger the "World's Policeman" needs a vacation

both from the service and the international political discourse. The U.K and France (but especially the Brits), need to acknowledge the fact that we have associated ourselves with an endeavour (across the board in the middle east), that can only sully our reputations for moderation (formerly and deservedly for oppression and xenophobia -which most had hoped "we" had abandoned with the empires-), with that of recidivism! Our ludicrous Madame Tussaud's of a monarchy doesn't help and it's time we realised that (essentially), it has been these people keeping them in power..


Quote; "Every July, some of the richest and most powerful men in the world gather at a 2,700 acre campground in Monte Rio, Calif., for two weeks of heavy drinking, super-secret talks, druid worship (the group insists they are simply “revering the Redwoods”), and other rituals.
Their purpose: to escape the “frontier culture,” or uncivilized interests, of common men.
The people that gather at Bohemian Grove — who have included prominent business leaders, former U.S. presidents, musicians, and oil barons — are told that “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here,” meaning business deals are to be left outside. One exception was in 1942, when a planning for the Manhattan Project took place at the grove, leading to the creation of the atom bomb.
A spokesperson for Bohemian Grove say the people that gather there “share a passion for the outdoors, music, and theater.”
The club is so hush-hush that little can be definitively said about it, but much of what we know today is from those who have infiltrated the camp, including Texas-based filmmaker Alex Jones. In 2000, Jones and his cameraman entered the camp with a hidden camera and were able to film a Bohemian Grove ceremony, Cremation of the Care. During the ceremony, members wear costumes and cremate a coffin effigy called “Care” before a 40-foot-owl, in deference to the surrounding Redwood trees.
Bohemian Grove’s spokesperson calls the ceremony “a traditional musical drama celebrating nature and summertime.”..."Philip Weiss, posed as a guest for seven days in 1989, when the waiting list was 33 years long and the grove had several thousand members. Weiss published the article “Inside Bohemian Grove,” writing: “You know you are inside the Bohemian Grove when you come down a trail in the woods and hear piano music from amid a group of tents and then round a bend to see a man with a beer in one hand ... urinating into the bushes. This is the most gloried-in ritual of the encampment, the freedom of powerful men to pee wherever they like," Go to: https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/blogpost/post/bohemian-grove-where-the-rich-and-powerful-go-to-misbehave/2011/06/15/AGPV1sVH_blog.html For full article.

..and from the same article by Phillip Weiss on "Before it's News", quote: "Weiss noticed “hundreds of cigars whose smokers had ignited them in defiance of the California Forest Service’s posted warnings.”
The Bohemian Club’s all-male membership and guest list includes artists, particularly musicians, as well as many prominent business leaders, government officials (including U.S. presidents), senior media executives, and people of power.

Members may invite guests to the Grove although those guests are subject to a screening procedure.
A guest’s first glimpse of the Grove typically is during the “Spring Jinks” in June, preceding the main July encampment. Bohemian club members can schedule private day-use events at the Grove any time it is not being used for Club-wide purposes, and are allowed at these times to bring spouses, family and friends, though female and minor guests must be off the property by 9 or 10 pm.
After 40 years of membership the men earn “Old Guard” status, giving them reserved seating at the Grove’s daily talks, as well as other perquisites.
Former president Herbert Hoover was inducted into the Old Guard on March 19, 1953; he had joined the club exactly 40 years prior.
Redwood branches from the Grove were flown to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City where they were used to decorate a banquet room for the celebration. In his acceptance speech, Hoover compared the honor of the “Old Guard” status to his frequent role as veteran counselor to later presidents.

The Club motto is “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here”*, which implies that outside concerns and business deals are to be left outside.
When gathered in groups, Bohemians usually adhere to the injunction, though discussion of business often occurs between pairs of members.
Important political and business deals have been developed at the Grove.
The Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project planning meeting that took place there in September 1942, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb.




The Cremation of Care ceremony was first conducted in the Bohemian Grove at the Midsummer encampment in 1881, devised by James F. Bowman with George T. Bromley playing the High Priest.
It was originally set up within the plot of the serious “High Jinks” dramatic performance on the first weekend of the summer encampment, after which the spirit of “Care”, slain by the Jinks hero, was solemnly cremated.
The ceremony served as a catharsis for pent-up high spirits, and “to present symbolically the salvation of the trees by the club …”
The Cremation of Care was separated from the Grove Play in 1913 and moved to the first night to become “an exorcising of the Demon to ensure the success of the ensuing two weeks.”
The Grove Play was moved to the last weekend of the encampment.
The ceremony takes place in front of the Owl Shrine, a 40-foot (12 m) hollow owl statue made of concrete over steel supports.
The moss- and lichen-covered statue simulates a natural rock formation, yet holds electrical and audio equipment within it.
For many years, a recording of the voice of club member Walter Cronkite was used as the voice of The Owl during the ceremony.
Music and pyrotechnics accompany the ritual for dramatic effect.

Though no woman has ever been given full membership in the Bohemian Club, the four female honorary members were hostess Margaret Bowman, poet Ina Coolbrith (who served as librarian for the Club), actress Elizabeth Crocker Bowers and writer Sara Jane Lippincott.
Since Coolbrith’s death in 1928, no other woman has been made a member.
These honorary members and other women guests have been allowed into the Bohemian “City Club” building and as daytime guests of the Grove, but not to the upper floors of the City Club nor as guests to the main summer encampment at the Grove.
Annual “Ladies’ Jinks” were held at the Club especially for spouses and invited guests.
In 1978 the Bohemian Club was charged with discrimination by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing over its refusal to hire women employees." Go to: http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2015/07/bohemian-grove-will-the-world-wake-up-this-july-21st-22nd-and-23rd-3181138.html

*"Moloch" is not a member of either the Hindu, Wiccan  or Norse (come to that), pantheons, not a "natural avatar" of any kind in-fact...quote;

"1. The Name:

The name of a heathen divinity whose worship figures largely in the later history of the kingdom of Judah. As the national god of the Ammonites, he is known as "Milcom" (1 Kings 11:5,7), or "Malcam" ("Malcan" is an alternative reading in 2 Samuel 12:30,31; compare Jeremiah 49:1,3; Zec 1:5, where the Revised Version margin reads "their king"). The use of basileus, and archon, as a translation of the name by the Septuagint suggests that it may have been originally the Hebrew word for "king," melekh. Molech is obtained from melekh by the substitution of the vowel points of Hebrew bosheth, signifying "shame." From the obscure and difficult passage, Amos 5:26, the Revised Version (British and American) has removed "your Moloch" and given "your king," but Septuagint had here translated "Moloch," and from the Septuagint it found its way into the Ac (7:43), the only occurrence of the name in the New Testament.

2. The Worship in Old Testament History:

In the Levitical ordinances delivered to the Israelites by Moses there are stern prohibitions of Molech-worship* (Leviticus 18:21; 20:2-5). Parallel to these prohibitions, although the name of the god is not mentioned, are those of the Deuteronomic Code where the abominations of the Canaanites are forbidden, and the burning of their sons and daughters in the fire (to Molech) is condemned as the climax of their wickedness (Deuteronomy 12:31; 18:10-13). The references to Malcam, and to David's causing the inhabitants of Rabbath Ammon to pass through the brick kiln (2 Samuel 12:30,31), are not sufficiently clear to found upon, because of the uncertainty of the readings. Solomon, under the influence of his idolatrous wives, built high places for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, and for Milcom, the abomination of the children of Ammon. See CHEMOSH. Because of this apostasy it was intimated by the prophet Ahijah, that the kingdom was to be rent out of the hand of Solomon, and ten tribes given to Jeroboam (1 Kings 11:31-33). These high places survived to the time of Josiah, who, among his other works of religious reformation, destroyed and defiled them, filling their places with the bones of men (2 Kings 23:12-14). Molech-worship had evidently received a great impulse from Ahaz, who, like Ahab of Israel, was a supporter of foreign religions (2 Kings 16:12). He also "made his son to pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the nations, whom Yahweh cast out from before the children of Israel" (2 Kings 16:3). His grandson Manasseh, so far from following in the footsteps of his father Hezekiah, who had made great reforms in the worship, reared altars for Baal, and besides other abominations which he practiced, made his son to pass through the fire (2 Kings 21:6). The chief site of this worship, of which Ahaz and Manasseh were the promoters, was Topheth in the Valley of Hinnom, or, as it is also called, the Valley of the Children, or of the Son of Hinnom, lying to the Southwest of Jerusalem (see GEHENNA). Of Josiah's reformation it is said that "he defiled Topheth .... that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech" (2 Kings 23:10).
3. The Worship in the Prophets:
Even Josiah's thorough reformation failed to extirpate the Molech-worship, and it revived and continued till the destruction of Jerusalem, as we learn from the prophets of the time. From the beginning, the prophets maintained against it a loud and persistent protest." Go to: http://www.biblestudytools.com/encyclopedias/isbe/molech-moloch.html For full article.

"War on the Poorest": The Proxy War in #Yemen Continues with the Backing of Britain and America; "No Holds Barred"!


Quote: "All sales of UK weapons which could be used in Saudi Arabia's military action in Yemen should be halted until the completion of an independent inquiry into alleged breaches of human rights, a parliamentary report has said.
The joint report by the House of Commons Business and International Development Committees said it had been presented with evidence of "clear violations" of international humanitarian law (IHL) including the death of 47 civilians - among them 21 women and 15 children - and injuries to 58 more when a house hosting a wedding party was struck by two missiles fired by military aircraft.
But the publication exposed deep differences between MPs on the issue, as the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee released its own rival report insisting that exports should be blocked only if the UK courts rule the weapons sales unlawful.
The highly unusual decision to publish two simultaneous reports is a mark of the depth of controversy over claims that UK-made armaments are being used in indiscriminate bombing raids on civilian targets by the Saudi-led coalition fighting Shia rebels known as the Houthis in Yemen.
International medical aid charity Medecins Sans Frontieres has accused the coalition of war crimes for an air strike on its hospital which killed at least 11 last month.
An internal investigation launched by Saudi Arabia is regarded as inadequate by campaigners, including the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), which is taking legal action to seek the suspension of arms export licences to the country.
The FAC's Conservative chairman Crispin Blunt is understood to have drawn up the rival document after objecting to proposals to issue the call for immediate suspension under the banner of the House of Commons Committees on Arms Export Controls (CAEC) - a panel which brings together the cross-party committees for Business, Foreign Affairs, Defence and International Development.
Reports suggested that Mr Blunt walked out of a private meeting of CAEC to prevent a vote being taken on the draft report, which he regarded as one-sided. Meanwhile, the Defence Committee has given no indication of whether it intends to publish its own report.
Conservative MP Chris White, who chaired the CAEC inquiry into the exports and is a member of the Business Committee, said: "The UK led the way in establishing international humanitarian law to govern the sale of arms. The conflict in Yemen has raised serious concerns that we are not showing equal determination in ensuring that these are respected.
"During this inquiry we have heard evidence from respected sources that weapons made in the UK have been used in contravention of International Humanitarian Law. The Government can no longer wait and see and must now take urgent action, halting the sale of arms to the Saudi-led coalition until we can be sure that there is no risk of violation."

Quote; "This past Tuesday, President Barack Obama delivered his final speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Though he tried to sound optimistic, he couldn’t help but strike a rueful tone. Gone was the global media darling who electrified world leaders in 2009—that Obama was “determined to act boldly and collectively on behalf of justice and prosperity at home and abroad.” The graying, deliberate Obama of 2016 could offer only limited aspirations of a “course correction” in world politics, while pondering why cycles of conflict and suffering persisted. Though the president advocated for the “hard work of diplomacy” in places like Syria, he also elaborated on one of his recent, common refrains, cautioning that in the Middle East “no external power is going to be able to force different religious communities or ethnic communities to co-exist for long.” Across the region, “we have to insist that all parties recognize a common humanity and that nations end proxy wars that fuel disorder,” Obama said.


*Italics mine.













A day later, the U.S. Senate held a rare debate on the sale of arms destined for another war in the Middle East. The deal, for $1.15 billion in weaponry to Saudi Arabia, including over 150 Abrams tanks, is a drop in a bucket: more than $100 billion in arms sales to the kingdom have already been approved by the Obama administration. But a year and a half into the kingdom’s relentless war in Yemen, opponents of the new sale see it as an outright affirmation of Washington’s involvement in a deadly, strategically incoherent war that the White House has kept largely quiet about. What’s more, it is at odds with Obama’s apparent distaste for regional proxy wars.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia has targeted Yemen’s Shia Houthi militias and their allies, loyalists of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who two years ago seized the Yemeni capital Sanaa by force. Several months later, they drove the Saudi-backed President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi into exile. When Saudi King Salman announced the intervention in Yemen—an intervention the kingdom has painted as a proxy war with Iran, its regional foe—the White House immediately authorized a support package that included intelligence-sharing and logistical support for military operations. That package has seen the United States deliver more than 40 million pounds of fuel to Saudi jets over the past 18 months, according to U.S. Central Command. The Saudis would be crippled without direct U.S. military assistance, particularly aerial refueling, which continues unabated.

Meridian Energy Assessment and Jin Shin Jyutsu #BioMagnetics #EnergyMedicine




Quote; "What is the Meridian Energy Analysis System?  

MEAS is a type of integrated diagnostic method.  It has been said that modern (“Western”) diagnostic methods such as blood tests, EKGs, x-rays, ultrasounds, Cat Scans, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, nuclear medicine scans, visualization with fiberoptic scopes, etc. reveal the basis of only about 40% of the average patient’s symptoms.  The other 60% is often left undefined.  The MEAS helps investigate the 60% of symptoms that are often missed using conventional diagnostic techniques.

According to the changes in electric resistance from the acupuncture points, the MEAS analyzes the energy flow through each of your 12 acupuncture meridians.  Twelve meridians translate into 12 paths, 12 branches, and 12 networks, which run through your body connecting your internal organs with your external body.  If a meridian is not in balance, the electric resistance changes in a corresponding acupuncture point.  For example, if your lung meridian is blocked (reduced flow of energy), the electric resistance in acupuncture point “Lung 4” is altered.  The change, whether it be due to excess resistance or insufficient resistance, is detected by the MEAS computer.  Thus the MEAS gives a rapid, reproducible assessment of each of your 12 major meridians, which in turn reflects the function of the organ (s) for which the meridian is named.  The theory of the 12 meridians links your body’s internal physiological function with a specific series of points near the surface of your body.

Where do you test the twelve meridians?  There are over 300 acupuncture points located on the 12 major meridians.  MEAS only assesses the most important 12 “primary acupuncture points” located near your hands/wrists and ankles/feet.

What is the relationship between my meridians and my nervous system?  According to TCM, your internal organs and your external body are connected by the meridians.  According to Western Medicine, your internal organs and your external bodies are connected by nerves.  Thus there are dual pathways (meridians and nerves) connecting the surface of your body to your internal organs.

When is the best time to take the Meridian Energy Analysis?  There appears to be a close relationship between the time of day and each meridian.  Because of this, it is more accurate to compare MEAS readings at a time of day similar to the previous readings.  For example, if your first consultation was at 2:00 p.m., it is best to be re-checked between 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Although we schedule follow-up consultation based on many factors, the MEAS can be repeated as soon as you notice a change from any therapy, supplements, etc.

It is best not to compare MEAS reports if you are sick, drank alcohol, coffee, tea, or had just exercised or eaten 30 minutes before the test.  While the information may be useful for that situation, it might be difficult to see a trend unless your MEAS is repeated under the same general conditions" Go to: http://www.drkaslow.com/html/meridian_energy_assessment_-mea-.html

Performed Through Total Health Nutrition Center

The MSA or Meridian Stress Assessment procedure is known by various other names, some of which include:
  1. Galvanic Skin Response
  2. Electro-Dermal Screening
  3. Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll
This valuable diagnostic tool was originally a device similar to a very simple ohmmeter, which measures electrical resistance. Today’s instruments are computerized and include thousands of digitized energetic signals with the storage capacity of over 50,000 therapeutic products from which it will select based on the information obtained. Sill the basic concept is the same: a circuit is established from the MSA machine, through the individual and back to the MSA machine. The resistance, measured at 58 accupoints on the fingers and toes, gives an indication of the health of the internal organs and systems. From this information, the computerized system can assist in detecting evidence of chronic infections, toxicity, allergies, and most importantly, recommend specific treatment options to address the problems identified."...

"Whereas the first machines could give indications of wellness in the various organs and systems, our current equipment also has information that can be used to:
  1. Test compatibility of various pharmaceuticals, supplements, and other remedies.
  2. Test to determine which of how many toxins, bacteria, viruses, or parasites may need to be address.
  3. Conduct sensitivity testing for foods, chemicals, and environmental toxins."...

What it is. Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) by Biomeridian is essentially a computerized health analysis that takes a great deal of the guesswork out of your health care. This non-invasive computerized test uses bio-energetic principles to assess the overall health of organs and systems, as well as factors that may be adversely affecting your health or interfering with normal functioning. Also known as Electrodermal Screening or Biomeridian Testing, this sophisticated technology measures the energy of associated acupuncture meridians—energy that carries key information about the condition of your internal organs and systems.

Quote: "4. Discussion

In Table 1, we prove that the 15 minutes of PLB irradiation exhibits a reliable complementary effect on LCLMM, rehabilitating to or approaching the normal current level; a 15-minute PLB irradiation also tended to suppress the HCLMM.
In Table 2, we show that the specific meridian channel current is indirectly affected by another meridian channel which has been treated by the PLB irradiation. Because the meridian channels and their corresponding acupuncture points are located in distinct locations, typical light energy irradiation should not be able to affect the electrical resistance of the skin or other meridian channels if no interconnecting network exists. Our previous water-based experiment proved that PLB weakens the hydrogen bonds and modifies the characteristics of liquid water [13, 14]. In this study, we applied the PLB technique to the Ryodoraku meridian point irradiation, attempting to detect its effects on the meridian current flow by the possible alteration of liquid characteristics in the meridian channels. Table 1 (Figure 4 as one example) shows that PLB irradiation has complementary effects on the current flow of abnormal meridians returning to its normal current level. Table 2 (Figure 5 as one example) shows that there are evident interactions between the current flows of relative meridians. Based on results of the current study, we suggest that the meridian channels are interconnected and acupuncture point stimulation induces a systematic wave-induced flow as shown in Figure 6.
Figure 6
PLB irradiation of the specific meridian (acupuncture) points may induce a wave-induced flow in the meridians, by using the interconnection of various meridians.
To strengthen our hypothesis, we searched for support in the relevant literature. Although numerous studies of TCM are published each year, the results and corresponding discussions are typically TCM theories, which are rarely proven through scientific methods. In order to decrease the amount of bias and avoid referring to unproven TCM theories, our discussion is based exclusively on the results of evidence-based publications.
After reviewing recent studies of meridians, acupuncture, propagation, stimulation, current, water, fluid, anatomy, energy, transport, flow, and propagation (Table 3), we discuss the progression of scientific evidence regarding meridians and the possibility of wave-induced flows."

Quote; "JIN SHIN JYUTSU®

literally translated is:
JYUTSU - Art
SHIN - Creator
JIN - Man of Knowing and Compassion
(Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion)

JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.
Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art as opposed to a technique because a technique is a mechanical application, whereas an art is a skillful creation. This beautiful, simple Art is our inheritance.
According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known before the birth of Gautama (Buddha, India), before the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and before the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things - Japan, A.D. 712). Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate part of man's wisdom - simplifying the complexities of existence - and is truly an Art of Living.
Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai early in the 20th century. His student, Mary Burmeister, brought the Art from Japan to America in the 1950's."....

"The Artless Art of Getting to Know (Help) Myself"

The Main Central Vertical Flow is the source of our life energy. This pathway flows down the center of the front of the body and up the back of the body. Here is a Jin Shin Jyutsu® self-help process to harmonize this pathway.
Harmonizing the Main Central regularly helps you feel centered and ensures that you will have plenty of energy. Some people find it calming and use it to fall asleep, while others like to use it to clear away the cobwebs upon awakening. For optimum results, do this daily.
MAIN CENTRAL VERTICAL FLOW
Step 1: Place the fingers of the right hand on the top of the head (where they will remain until step 6). Place the fingers of the left hand on your forehead between your eyebrows. Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your fingertips synchronize with each other.
Step 2: Now move the left fingertips to the tip of the nose. Hold them there for 2 to 5 minutes, or until the pulses synchronize.
Step 3: Move the left fingertips to your sternum (center of your chest between your breasts). Stay there for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses synchronize.

"Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll



"’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
      Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
      And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
      And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
      He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
      He chortled in his joy.

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe."

Thanks. I love that poem.

This is Alice's grave.

I was born in Lyndhurst and was christened in the same church.

Lewis Carroll's grave is in a quiet beautiful cemetery at the Mount, at the start of the Hog's Back. When I am out with my dog I often walk round it, reading the inscriptions and admiring the wild flowers and appreciating the tranquility.

Some photos on here. It is a strange American site. Over 400 'messages' are there addressing him.

Another US/UK Equipped Saudi Airstrike Causes "Collateral Damage" to Medicins Sans Frontieres Hospital in #Yemen (statement)




Quote; "A hospital supported by the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in northwestern Yemen was hit by an airstrike today, killing at least 11 people and injuring at least 19.
The attack on Abs Hospital, in Yemen’s Hajjah governorate, occurred at 3:45 pm local time and immediately killed nine people, including an MSF staff member. Two more patients died while being transferred to Al Jamhouri hospital. Five patients remain hospitalized.
The hospital, supported by MSF since July 2015, was partially destroyed, and all the remaining patients and staff have been evacuated.
The GPS coordinates of the hospital were repeatedly shared with all parties to the conflict, including the Saudi-led coalition, and its location was well- known.
“This is the fourth attack against an MSF facility in less than 12 months,” said Teresa Sancristóval, MSF emergency program manager for Yemen. “Once again, today we witness the tragic consequences of the bombing of a hospital. Once again, a fully functional hospital full of patients and MSF national and international staff members was bombed in a war that has shown no respect for medical facilities or patients.”
“Even with a recent United Nations resolution calling for an end to attacks on medical facilities and with the high-level declarations of commitment to International Humanitarian Law, nothing seems to be done to make parties involved in the conflict in Yemen respect medical staff and patients,” Sancristóval continued. “Without action, these public gestures are meaningless for today’s victims. Either intentional or as a result of negligence, this is unacceptable.”
MSF calls on all parties, and particularly the Saudi-led coalition responsible for the attack, to guarantee that such attacks do not happen again.
Abs Hospital was the main medical facility functioning in the western part of Hajjah governorate. The facility has treated 4,611 patients since MSF began supporting the hospital in July 2015.
The hospital had a 14-bed emergency room, a maternity unit and a surgical unit. In the last weeks the hospital had seen an increase in wounded patients, mostly victims of recent clashes and the aerial campaign in the area.
At the time of the strike, there were 23 patients in the surgery ward, 25 in the maternity ward, 13 newborns and 12 patients in the pediatric ward. The hospital had admitted several war-wounded patients during the day. The number of patients in the emergency room is pending further clarification."

........and from "Russia Today"; "A Saudi-led coalition air strike hit a hospital operated by Medecins Sans Frontieres in northern Yemen on Monday, killing at least 11 people and wounding 19, the aid group said.
A Reuters witness at the scene of the attack in the Abs district of Hajja province said medics could not immediately evacuate the wounded because war planes continued to fly over the area and emergency workers feared more bombings."..




"..It said one of its staff members was among those killed when an aerial bomb hit the hospital compound, also killing 10 patients."This is the fourth attack against an MSF facility in less than 12 months," the statement said."..
