motto:“Ceux qui prétendent avoir des croyances ou des convictions n’ont jamais rien approfondi…”(Émile-Michel Cioran)

Au cœur de la forêt tropicale humide, des milliers de plantes ont toujours “survécu”. Il y en a tellement qu’il est souvent difficile, voire impossible, pour certaines espèces à trouver même un petit coin. Un oiseau ou une chauve-souris vient d’atterrir sur une branche ou dans un tronc creux: à l’intérieur, une graine va germer assez rapidement et elle va donner vie à un petit figuier… Au tout début, il va développer des racines de plusieurs mètres, assez longues pour atteindre la terre rapidement, au pied du grand arbre. Une fois dans le sol, le figuier peut bien se nourrir et il va “accélérer” sa croissance. Ses racines grossissent, pendant que ses branches grandissent, le pauvre arbre est complètement entouré, étranglé et se transforme en l’indispensable “support-tuteur” pour le figuier – encore trop jeune pour rester…

Ebola: [New] Updated Charts

Mens et Manus

Last Update: 29 October 2014 [Charts]
Current Update: 19 November 2014 [Data Source]scale_11.19lcr_11.19monthly_11.19cumulative_11.19A few notes:
1. On October 29, the WHO reported ~3500 new cases and thus, a tremendous spike in cumulative cases emerged (shown here). However, about 700 cases were retracted between October 31 and November 5 (likely due to reconciliation of multiple data sources). To smooth the cumulative case and lab-confirmation curves, data from October 29 and October 31 were not included…
2. However, data from these dates were included for the monthly epicurve. Because a large number of cases were added late last month and then retracted in early November, the number of new cases reported this month appears small compared to October. While it’s possible that growth of new cases is indeed slowing, ongoing data reconciliation may be the most significant driver of this phenomenon.
3. Fully-updated data for…

“I tried to show you just how much I care”…

~

I wish I knew, what I know now…
Right from the very start…
Now it’s laid out before me…
The truth inside your heart…

Your words so cruelly spoken…
Those cleverly constructed lies…
Roll off your tongue with ease…
Forcing tears into my eyes…

Each one a guilt laced arrow…
Embedding into my brain…
Forcing me to defend myself…
Whilst twisted up with pain…

I used to know you better…
Better than you knew yourself…
But that’s no longer true…
And I need to protect myself…

I can’t believe the difference…
Or what’s changed in you…
It’s like you are a stranger…
Not the person I once knew…

You once were soft and gentle…
So much fun to be around…
But something’s taken over…
Destroying the love we found…

Now you’re evil and vicious…
Moods swinging wild and free…
Like a volcano always erupting…
Or a killer in the…

via LaVern Baker – Shake A Hand – YouTubeAll around the world, peace is here to grab and save, if we will stand up and do so. Those who use fear, abuse, terror, force are in reality too few to stand against those who just wish to live their lives in peace with family, friends, and neighbors. Shine your light, stand with your brothers and sisters… Peace is in your hands.

All about money, careers, and publicity! ‘Homeopathy CAN cure Ebola but WHO officials are stopping us’ | Daily Mail Online

“As the momentum for homeopaths to do something built up I got the opportunity and took it,’ she said. ‘We treated all types of cases in the hospital with homeopathic medicines. The response was good to the extent that we have a request from them to promote and teach homeopathy there.’

She said it was unfair to suggest that they were exploiting victims – as some commentators have done – for their own ends.

‘None of the people thought that in Liberia. We helped, they accepted. These critics are armchair intellectuals.’

Her colleague Dr Ortrud Lindemann, who runs a clinic in Barcelona, insisted that homeopathy could prove useful in fighting the Ebola virus.

‘As doctors we have the duty to do everything we can to alleviate the suffering of those poor people stricken with Ebola and we hoped that homeopathic remedies might be able to help in that,’ she told MailOnline.

Israeli settlers attempt to torch home in Ramallah-area village | Maan News Agency

Israeli settlers on Wednesday evening attempted to burn down a house in the village of al-Mughayyir east of Ramallah, but were prevented by doing so by local villagers.

The attempted arson comes only a week after settlers attacked the village and burned down a mosque, in an incident that sparked widespread Palestinian fury.

On Wednesday, dozens of settlers approached a house on the outskirts of the village when they were spotted by villagers who started throwing rocks at them.

Settlers were forced to retreat to their nearby settlement under the protection of Israeli soldiers as a result, and no injuries were reported.
