Understanding Sun Tzu's Book 'The Art of War'- Full Documentary
Understanding Sun Tzu's - Full Documentary Few writers from ancient times enjoy the same level of recognition as Sun Tzu, the famous philosopher and general from ancient China. Quotes from his timeless treatise the "Art of War" appear in popular culture and the whole book is frequently studied by business and military students around the world. Sun Tzu's "Art of War" presents thirteen chapters that describe how to factor in all important variables when trying to win a conflict. The principles can be applied to military problems as well as the challenges of the marketplace or even personal struggles. The precise dates of the birth and death of Sun Tzu are not known, but history has verified his existence around the year 500 B.C.E. in China. Born of Sun Ping, a senior military officer in the state of Qi, Sun Tzu grew up with an education focusing on military affairs. At the time, it was common for Chinese generals to write about their philosophies of war, but it has been the work of Sun Tzu that has survived the ages. What made his "Art of War" so compelling that it is quite literally still in print 2,500 years after it was first inked onto strips of bamboo? Part of the resilience of Sun Tzu's ideas comes from his success as a general. Ancient China was a complex chessboard of highly civilized yet warring states, and Sun Tzu enjoyed a respectable career within this challenging environment. Sun Tzu was in the employ of He Lu, the ruler of the state of Wu, who made him a general of the kingdom. In this role, Sun Tzu participated in numerous campaigns. His successes included the destruction of the Yue state, the territorial expansion of Wu, and the occupation of the city of Ying. His successful application of his strategic thinking surely lent his literary work strength. His "Art of War" is not limited to narrow military concepts such as positioning soldiers on the field. Sun Tzu took into account all the forces acting upon a state. War is a tool of the state, and as Sun Tzu wrote, "War is a matter of vital importance to the state; a matter of life or death, the road either to survival or to ruin." But this crucial element of state power could not operate independently of diplomacy, politics, economics, geography, and philosophy. Each chapter in the "Art of War" explores these and other factors in detail and teaches that the application of military force must be used with a multidisciplinary approach. Geography is certainly given great emphasis because the actual land that is being fought over underpins military strategy, but it is not the sole consideration for a general. Among the many sage pieces of advice that one can take away from the "Art of War" is Sun Tzu's insistence that war should not be started hastily, with optimistic assumptions, or without good intelligence. The stakes in war are too high for the state to lose, so therefore it must only employ its military tools when it can achieve victory. The economics of warfare is repeatedly stressed by Sun Tzu because of the heavy toll that maintaining an army in the field extracts from its society. War should not be the first tool that a state uses to gain its desired outcomes because it is so expensive. In Sun Tzu's final chapter of his book, he opens with a statement that rings very true today as my own country, the United States, finds itself financing a prolonged war. From Chapter 13 "Use of Spies" Sun Tzu wrote: "Now, when an army of one hundred thousand is raised and dispatched on a distant campaign, the expenses borne by the people together with disbursements of the treasury will amount to a thousand pieces of gold daily. In addition, there will be continuous commotion both at home and abroad, people will be exhausted by the corvee of transport, and the farm work of seven hundred thousand households will be disrupted."

Top Documentary Films: The Real Buster Keaton
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: The Real Buster Keaton During the 1910s, popular comedy shorts preceded more esteemed features. By the 1920s, however, comedy developed into a mass-observed genre of feature lengths with stars like Buster Keaton and Charles Chaplin. Silent film, by just referring to its title, suggested a dependence on physical action-slapstick-for comedians. But this alone did not distinguish silent film comedy's capabilities. Similar action, albeit with sound, had been performed on vaudeville stages and circus arenas. To this end, silent film needed to offer comedians something more to explain its durability with an abounding audience; although the aspect of mass-exhibition is a crucial one when considering the various medium-specific strategies offered to comedians. A focus on the aforementioned performers' careers offers an explanation as to how this relationship with not only the medium, but also the audience, affected their approach to silent film comedy. Through the analysis of Sherlock Jr. (1924), The Saphead (1920), and The Immigrant (1917), film evidently offered itself as a representational art form of time and space that could be manipulated to convey a complicated gag and a more sophisticated story. This was accomplished through the comedians' use of medium-exclusive techniques as well as the development of a filmic persona that worked both for and against audience expectation. Before any examination of what silent film specifically offered comedians occurs, one must first acknowledge cinema's general contribution to performers as well as audiences. Before cinema, live performances such as circuses and music halls were the major venues for inexpensive entertainment (Bordwell 3). Yet because these performances were live, the constriction of time and space limited certain exhibition possibilities. For a specific performance, there was only one time and space to see it; there would evidently be a smaller crowd than that of a performance shown in various locations at multiple times.

Documentary Films: History of the Shotgun
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Documentary Films: History of the Shotgun Guns are generally perceived as weapons but they can also be used for recreation, law enforcement, military, hunting, sporting, and defense-as in the case of shotguns. Shotguns are designed to fire a lot of small pellets and they can have a slug barrel that can fire single projectiles per shot or smooth bore barrels that can fire multiple shots. Shotguns are also characterized by their high stopping power for short-range shooting compared to rifles and handguns. And since they are easy to aim, they are useful firearms for beginner marksmen. Shotgun guides: get to know the types Looking at shotgun guides allows you to select the right type of shotgun that you can use for whatever purpose. Shotguns include types for action including semi-automatic or autoloading, break action or hinged, and pump action or slide. They can also be classified according to features like sawn-off and double-barreled. Here is a quick overview of these types: Hinged: Requires manual shell insertion in the chamber and the shells are ejected when action is opened. Autoloading: Reloads, extracts, and fires automatically when the trigger is pulled with very little recoil. Slide: Shells are loaded through the slide and they are extracted when the slide moves backwards to open the action. Sawn-off: With customized designs, the barrel is shortened to hide the action but it fires 2/3 of the distance that is common to typical shotguns and is significantly lighter. Double-barreled: With 2 barrels arranged either on top of the other or side by side, you can fire it twice with one action as long as the two shots are aimed at one target and taken together. Buying tips from shotgun guides A 12-gauge shotgun is ideal for higher versatility, more power, and for use in different shooting activities. If you want to use your shotgun in wet conditions, choose one that has a stock with anodized metal or a synthetic choke for water resistance. To make your shotgun look nicer, a wood choke with a good finish should be enough. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shotgun https://www.shotgun.co.nz/ http://www.cabelas.com/category/Shotguns/105537780.uts http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2773467/Shotgun-victim-needed-face-transplant-finds-love-years-hiding-public-reveals-s-having-learn-kiss-again.html

Top Documentary Films: Solving the Mystery of the Romanov Family
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Solving the Mystery of the Romanov Family Few figures in history have fascinated us as much as Czar Nicholas II and Czarina Alexandra, particularly their personal lives. In retrospect, the two monarchs and their five children seemed doomed from the beginning. While the turmoil of coming revolution swirled around them, the family resided in an insular world, surrounded by luxury and opulence. However, the magnificent Imperial Easter Eggs made by the master jeweler Peter Carl Faberge and his workshop of designers truly symbolize the Romanov's wealth and power. Today these extraordinary works of art are worth millions of dollars, prized by billionaires and art museums as invaluable centerpieces of their collections. Yet, the Faberge Easter Eggs also represent the immortality of love. Nicholas and Alexandra, in spite of their weaknesses as rulers, had a long and passionate marriage lasting almost a quarter of a century. Although Alexander III, Nicholas' father was the first czar to give a Faberge egg to his spouse at Easter starting in 1885, the young emperor continued this annual practice when he ascended the throne nearly a decade later. In fact, Nicholas would present two Easter eggs each year: one to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria and the other to his wife Alexandra or Sunny, as he called her. His gifts to Sunny, though, reflect the public and private relationship between the royal lovers, ultimately telling the story of their tragic fate. Somehow all of these priceless treasures have miraculously survived, escaping the destruction of revolution and war. Twenty-one in total, they range from the resplendent diamond covered Rosebud Easter Egg of 1894. the first of Czarina Alexandra's Faberge eggs and a sign of the couple's new life together, to the dark Steel Military Easter Egg mounted on artillery shells constructed during the austere years of World War I when the Russian empire was close to collapse. Did the Czarina Alexandra have her favorite one? A likely choice would have been the gold Coronation Easter Egg of 1897, celebrating the triumphant moment of Alexandra's crowning in Moscow. How could the twenty-four year old empress resist the surprise inside: an ingenious miniature replica (complete with moving wheels and red upholstery) of the eighteenth century coach of Catherine II in which Alexandra rode to the ceremony that day. Instead it brought back memories of the tragedy that marked what should have been a joyous occasion: the loss of over a thousand of her new subjects' lives in a stampede for beer and souvenirs a couple of days after the coronation. An event that was interpreted by the more superstitious members of the Russian populace as an evil portent of the future.

The Truth about Liars and Lies - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES The Truth about Liars and Lies - Documentary Films The origin of a liar is evil. The goal of a liar is supposed self-protection. Although there are different kinds of pain, the intention of a liar is to cause or alleviate pain to the receiver of the lie. People love to read and write about liars but do not enjoy direct contact with them. Liars make good villains in a story but not lovers, relatives, friends or acquaintances. In reality, good people try to avoid them like the plague. There is no trust consequently any stability in a relationship with a liar. When identifying a liar, there is no distinction with age, sex, race and so on. A liar is a liar, period. A victim of a liar is a separate story. In my opinion, there are different types of liars. Although people can fall into more than one category, the divisions include: 1) The Blatant Liar, 2) The Back-stabbing Liar, 3) The White Liar, 4) The Poker-face Liar, 5) The Non-verbal Liar, and 6) The Blackguard. A person who looks you in the eyes and speaks a lie without blinking an eye or conscience is the Blatant Liar. You obviously and automatically know this evil-hearted person is lying because he/she chooses not to hide it in any way or form. The back-stabbing liar is found most often in a business, especially corporate work environment. The success-climbers will resort to any means to reach the top and usually back-stabbing is involved. The phrase 'watch your back' applies to this arena. Feel-good compliments or keeping the peace are the white liars. Usually the feel-good compliments are spoken by women and the keeping the peace comments come from men. Even though you may be fat and/or the color is wrong for you, a white liar will tell you that 'you look great!' When a person masters the art of maintaining a blank look on his/her face, this is a poker-face liar. As when playing cards where the other players absolutely believe you have a good or a bad hand, in reality you have the opposite. An honest person never receives the expected from an un-expectant poker-face liar. The most difficult lies to detect come from the non-verbal liar. First of all, the non-verbal liar firmly believes he/she is not lying because he/she did not SPEAK it aloud. This phrase applies to the liar's way of thinking, 'what she/he doesn't know, doesn't hurt her/him.' Because the victim of the liar eventually learns the truth from another source, the opposite is true and the victim is hurt deeply. No matter how painful the truth may be, it is always best to be open and honest up front. The Truth about Liars and Lies - Documentary Films

Documentary Films: History of the Machine Gun
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Documentary Films: History of the Machine Gun The WW1 machine gun was not a very good weapon at first. Although most people think of trench warfare in WW1 to be dominated by machine guns, it didn't start that way at all. The trenches of World War I eventually filled up with dead bodies from the power of machine weapons. But at first, these weapons of war were not well built or well designed. They broke down very often. At the start of WW1, the automatic gun was quite primitive and not impressive at all. They jammed up all the time and many soldiers did not even want to use them. They were also very bulky and weighed a lot. This meant they were not easy to transport. The mobility of these guns was a serious issue for soldiers as you can imagine. They weighed between 30kg and 60kg, which wasn't too bad for holding a position defensively. But, they were terrible for troops during an advance. They caused more death to the offense in these cases due to the slow movement and exposure. Of course, these guns were made even more unmanageable due to their supplies. There was a requirement for mountings, packing, carriages and more. They were hardly good weapons at first. The WW1 machine gun was a real dog. Many people don't know that the 1914 version of the gun was placed on a tripod or stand. It actually required large teams. In some cases, up to 6 men were required per weapon. Bullets were fed into the gun using metal strips and belts of fabric. There were other problems too. For example, automatic gun engineers simply did not properly calculate the amount of heat given off. So, they would rapidly overheat and become useless metal slags in very little time, without cooler devices and mechanisms. They had to be used only to fire small bursts at first, versus continuous firing. As time went on, engineers learned to cool the barrels using water and air venting. Another thing people don't know is that machine gunners would group together in very defensive positions. This would allow gunner teams to protect each other, especially in hot conditions when the gun would more likely overheat. Many people want to know the rate of fire of these weapons. A well trained group operating a well maintained automatic gun could be "worth" upwards of 60-80 rifles. However, keep in mind the requirements for teams to operate these guns so the actual body replacement was that world war one machine gun could replace about 10-15 soldiers with rifles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_gun http://www.firstworldwar.com/weaponry/machineguns.htm http://world.guns.ru/machine-e.html http://science.howstuffworks.com/machine-gun.htm

The Truth About Astrology - Full Documentary
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES The Truth About Astrology - Full Documentary In our modern age of science and rationality, the mere mention of astrology is enough to evoke a broad range of reactions across the spectrum of society. For many people, the term astrologer summons to mind images of hippies, new-age witches, so-called psychics or a variety of other charlatans and frauds. On the other hand, kings and emperors throughout history have used their secret knowledge of astrology to their own great benefit. To this day, politicians and judges, world-famous celebrities, powerful businessmen, and financiers from New York and the City of London to Moscow and Hong Kong, still use astrology to guide them when they make important decisions. So what is astrology all about, and how can this ancient science be put to use to help you? Read on to discover the answers to these and other questions. First let's tackle some common myths and misconceptions about astrology. - Astrology is not magic. This bears repeating: astrology is not magic. The science underlying the practice of astrology is based on thousands of years of empirical research, and as with all good science, our understanding of astrology continues to evolve and improve as we do. Just as alchemy paved the way for the development of modern science and the widely-respected scientific method, so too will astrology lead the way to a greater understanding of the energies that permeate the Universe and how their ebb and flow can affect terrestrial life. - Astrology is not a new-age fad. We've all seen the signs for those shady tarot and palm-reading shops, and if you've traveled through Europe (especially Eastern Europe) then you've probably encountered various gypsies and other ne'er-do-wells hocking their fortune telling and astrology services, often at exorbitant prices. Unfortunately, most of these people are charlatans and frauds; some of them are well-intentioned but delusional about their own capabilities, and occasionally you may find a genuine astrologer out there, but the vast majority of such individuals are nothing more than snake-oil salesmen (or women, as the case often is) and they know it. Real astrology is an ancient science practiced by respected individuals throughout history, including right up to the modern day. You won't find real astrologers hocking their services with exaggerated claims, false promises, or gimmicky promotions, because they simply don't need to. And although some legitimate astrologers do sell crystals, essential oils and other natural products, you wouldn't find most of us within a mile of a New Age shop. Many of us are doctors, lawyers, teachers or professionals in other fields, and astrology is just another aspect of our lives. - Astrology is not based on superstitious mumbo-jumbo. Much of the confusion surrounding whether astrology is or is not a legitimate science stems from the fact that astrologers have historically made great use of symbolism and allegory to communicate their understanding of how the position of the stars impacts terrestrial life. Modern astrologers still use much of the same terminology and symbolism simply because modern science has yet to catch up with astrology. We are only now starting to study and understand the impact of things like mass coronal ejections from the sun and how they impact life here on Earth; it's no surprise that we haven't even begun to understand how the electromagnetic waves and radioactive energies of other stars may impact life here. - Astrology is not easy. This is a bit of a double-edged statement. On the one hand, the principles that underlie the practice of astrology are quite simple and easy to grasp; but on the other hand, just take a look at the nighttime sky next time you're away from the city! To get the most accurate readings from any astrological chart, there are usually two or three dozen different aspects and relationships to look at and take into consideration, and this is what makes astrology complex and difficult, especially if you want the most accurate and detailed results. Remember those kings and emperors I mentioned, as well as the politicians, celebrities and market-shaping financiers around the world? Well, part of why they are able to use astrology to their own benefit is because they can afford to pay for the services of skilled astrologers. When a powerful businessman in India wants to find a good date for his company merger, the astrologer he hires may take anywhere from several days to several weeks to select the most opportune time. Good astrology takes time and effort, because there are many planets, stars and celestial bodies, as well as their positions and relationships to one another, which must be considered.

Documentary Films: History of the Sewing Machine
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Documentary Films: History of the Sewing Machine Sewing machines are one of the great inventions credited with transforming the economies of global societies. In 1851 that Isaac Merritt Singer, after studying a poorly working example, spent $40 and 11 days to develop a practical sewing machine that used an up and down mechanism. The first Singer sewing machine was introduced for sale across the United States that same year and the company became the primary manufacturer and seller of sewing machines within two years. Initially, sewing machines were manufactured for garment factory production lines. The industrial sewing machines are generally designed to perform a specific sewing function such as embroidery or sewing straight stitches. Machines with different functions are used to complete clothing items in a production line. Marketing sewing machines to individuals didn't begin until 1889, allowing for women to have the means to create clothing for their family without the labor-intensive hand stitching. The domestic sewing machine used in the home is manufactured to perform many tasks from sewing straight or zigzag stitches and the creation of buttonholes, as well as stitching buttons on to the piece of clothing. Sewing machines have been mass produced worldwide for more than two-hundred years. As a result, the wide variety of styles and manufacturers make antique sewing machines a favorite collectible. Some of the most favorite antique machines include working miniatures that were salesmen's samples that doubled as child's sewing machines specifically for use by young girls, since they were expected to learn how to sew. All modern sewing machines run on electricity, while their predecessors were powered by a hand crank or a foot pedal operation known as a treadle. All sewing machines feature mechanical parts, however today a sewing machine that is not computerized, is referred to as a mechanical sewing machine. Electronic sewing machines sew faster and smoother while giving a better stitch. Computerized sewing machines are able to perform many standard functions for the home seamstress more efficiently and make embroidering a simple task. The price for basic, mechanical sewing machines for the home starts at $70; added features push prices up to $1,200. Computerized sewing machine pricing can start around $400 for the home machines, with top of the line models running as high as $5,000. Most sewing machines are well built and will last for many years with only a few parts needing replacement. A great number of antique sewing machines are still in operation, but parts can be hard to find if the company is no longer in business. Typically, the manufacturer is the best location for sewing machine parts, but there are also many companies specializing in sewing machine part replacements. For more than two centuries, innovators have been sewing themselves into the fabric of our world's economy by answering the creativity needs of the home seamstress and major designers. The human need for textiles and continued economic gain ensures that the sewing machine will continue to evolve. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sewing_machine

Mathematics - The Language of the Universe - Full Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Mathematics - The Language of the Universe Mathematics isn't science. In fact, its approach is exactly the opposite compared to, for example, physics. Mathematics is an elaborate game, in which it is decided from the outset to play by the given rules. Then one proceeds by proving theorems; truths already implicitly hidden in these rules. In that way, one might say that mathematics is the easiest thing in the world, as everything is given from the start - but of course it requires incredibly sharp brains to lure out and understand what is already embodied in the rules - the starting assumptions ("postulates") that neither can be proved nor disproved. In physics, the situation is just the opposite. We are observing the world and trying to understand how it works, that is, trying to find the rules that nature follows. At least we assume that nature follows rules. But the strategy is difficult because we never have perfect knowledge about anything. It's a bit like covering large parts of a chess board, and then trying to get someone (ignorant of the subtleties of chess) to figure out the rules, by only getting access to some of the 64 squares on the chessboard. For instance, say that you can see only three of the squares; it will be almost impossible to obtain the complete set of chess-rules. No matter how long you stare at the three squares (during a real game of chess on all 64) you will hardly be able to draw any conclusions about what the pieces are doing - and why! - when you aren't seeing them. They show up seemingly at random, and leave your three squares just as erratically. We could hardly gain knowledge of the complete rules of the game. But it works roughly the same with the fundamental laws of nature, with the difference that the number of "squares" we need to observe probably is considerably larger than 64. While some physicists believe that we soon will be able to see the equivalent of all "squares", others think that we still see only three or even fewer. What, then, is the similarity between mathematics and physics? A large part of modern mathematics was developed by Newton in the 1600s because he needed it to analyze his laws of motion - mechanics. More modern mathematics, such as group theory and differential geometry, however, was developed "for its own sake", but was soon borrowed and used in quantum physics and general relativity. This led the renowned physicist Eugene Wigner, in 1960, to write an article entitled "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences". Why, wondered Wigner, is mathematics - often designed only for its own sake (fun!) - so successful in describing phenomena of nature? Perhaps nature itself is mathematical in essence? I think it is much simpler than that. Mathematics is a language developed by the human brain. Albeit the most precise language we know of today, still basically a language. Mathematics is a kind of map over how our brain works, with logic as its compass. In the future it may well be that we find (invent) an even more precise language than mathematics, which will then be used to describe all sorts of phenomena. Since both mathematics and science are the fruits of the human brain, it is also perfectly natural that they should fit like a glove. To say that mathematics is "unreasonably effective" for use in physics and other sciences is rather like saying that our tools to make gloves are "unreasonably successful" to make gloves. The book of nature need not necessarily be written in mathematics any more than a computer manual need to be written in English.

Tesla - The Real God of Lightning - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Tesla - The Real God of Lightning - Documentary Films Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in what is now Croatia. He was the fourth of five children in the family. His father was a priest and his mother somewhat of an amateur inventor. She was adept at making craft tools for the home. In 1875 Tesla studied electrical engineering at the Austrian Polytechnic in Graz. While there he studied the uses of alternating current. In December 1878, Tesla left Graz and broke off all relations with his family for a time. After re-establishing a relationship with his family, Tesla was persuaded by his father to attend the Charles-Ferdinand University in Prague. His father died after he completed only one term, and he left the university. In 1880, he moved to Budapest to work for a telegraph company. When the first telephone exchange in Budapest opened in 1881, he became the chief electrician. Later he would become the engineer for the country's first telephone system. In 1882 he moved to Paris, to work as an engineer for the Continental Edison Company. Later that year he conceived the idea for an induction motor and began developing various devices that use rotating magnetic fields. He received patents for these devices in 1888. On 6 June 1884, Tesla came to the United States and was hired to work at Thomas Edison's lab in New Jersey. His first tasks were simple electrical engineering projects, but he quickly was called on to work on some of the most challenging projects at the company. After a dispute with Edison over using direct current or alternating current as a power source, Tesla left the company. In 1886 he formed his own company, Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing. This was a short lived venture however. Again Tesla got into a dispute with his financial backers over the use of alternating current. He eventually was relieved of his duties at the company by his investors. In 1887 Tesla filed for seven U.S. patents in the field of polyphase AC motors and power transmission. These included a complete system of generators, transformers, transmission lines, motors and lighting. George Westinghouse heard about Tesla's patents, and was interested in using Tesla's inventions for the long distance transmission of electrical power. Westinghouse paid Tesla a cash sum to buy the patents, and also agreed to pay royalties of $2.50 per horsepower of electrical capacity sold. With Westinghouse's purchase of these patents, a full scale war broke out between Westinghouse and Thomas Edison. The stakes were high because both knew the monetary rewards that would be reaped in the future. Edison steadfastly believed the future of electric power was in using direct current. Westinghouse, however believed Tesla's alternating current system was superior. Tesla - The Real God of Lightning - Documentary Films

Top Documentary Films: Leaving and Evacuating Earth
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Leaving and Evacuating Earth How about a new super earth that is 42 light years away? Well, if we don't stop destroying our own planet, we may have to jump ship to the new super earth, GJ 1214b, a watery planet that has been seen by astronomers and scientists. It is said to have a very large, hot, and deep ocean. The estimated temperature of water in that ocean is 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Not even our most robust deep-sea volcanic vent dwellers can tolerate water of such high temperatures. Our deep sea microbes can only tolerate temperatures of 284 degrees Fahrenheit according to sources. GJ 1214b's constituents of gases are hydrogen, helium, nitrogen, magnesium, oxygen, to carbon dioxide, (David Charbonneau, Astronomer - Harvard University). As a result of the gases mentioned above, scientists are guessing that the new super earth could very well sustain life. Albeit life form that would be very different from what we are used to seeing. Any life form that could tolerate temperatures of 370 degrees will have to be very different from the ones we are accustomed to seeing. People in the scientific community and blogosphere are buzzing about this new super earth so much that bloggers are encouraging their readers to come up with a better name for the watery planet. Suggested names range from "Oceanus" to "Megasea," (Wiredscience). We are destroying our earth so rapidly that we might as well start looking elsewhere in our solar system for another habitat. GJ 1214b could be a great place to start. All that would be required is a heat resistant suit! Speaking of destruction of Earth, big chunks of icebergs are breaking away from Antarctica ending up off the coast of Australia, as we speak, (AFP). These chunks of icebergs are as big as islands. Obviously, they will eventually break up and dissolve as soon as they get to warmer and warmer waters. This raises a great question. Where is this extra water going to end up? It will definitely not end up in the back yard pool for sure!

Egypt's Book of the Dead - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Egypt's Book of the Dead - Documentary Films The gods of Egypt are amongst the most ancient deities known, and among these Anubis may well be the oldest. Archaeologists have found mention of Anubis from the earliest predynastic period of Egyptian history, more than 5000 years ago. To the ancient Egyptians, the whole world followed the model of the valley where they lived; dominated by the sun and the Nile, both capable of bringing life as well as death. Their world was very orderly. The waters flowed from North to South, while the sun rose in the East and set in the West. Each year the Nile water would burst its banks, flow out across the fields and then recede, leaving behind fertilized land. Life, for the ancient Egyptians, had a definite rhythm which they enshrined in mythology. There were many other gods who in turn took many forms and had many names. Each district and settlement had its own gods and myths, however some gods was common to all areas of the country and as a result these are the best known today, namely Osiris, Isis, Anubis, Bes, Ma'at, Khum, Seth, Hathor, Bastet,Thoth, Sobek, Amun Ra, Mut and Khonsu. It is likely that Anubis was a primary deity of the very earliest Egyptians, he was certainly the chief god of the 17th Upper Egyptian nome, a city the Greeks called 'Cynopolis' or City of the Dogs. His general role changed with the growth of the cult of Osiris. Myth said that Anubis was a son of Osiris, not by Isis his wife, but by Nepthys (who had disguised herself as Isis) Worried about her own husbands anger at her giving birth, Nepthys then asked Isis to become Anubis' foster mother. In modern times Anubis is known primarily as the 'God of the Dead' but this has connotations which are quite missing from his role in Egyptian religion. The afterlife was very real to the Ancient Egyptians and they spent a great deal of their lives preparing for it, believing that when they died they would travel to Duat, the underworld, to be judged. The journey was understood to be difficult, so many spells and incantations were required to help them find their way. These were written in the 'Book of Coming Forth by Day', often known as the 'Book of the Dead' which was placed inside the coffin. Around seventeen feet long the books of the wealthy would contain their personal choice of spells and decoration, while those less well off would buy one 'off the peg' and simply fill in the name of the deceased. It is clear from the many such books that have survived, that Anubis was not, therefore to be dreaded or feared, he was rather the friend of the dead; as 'he who is upon his mountain' Anubis was a protector, not only of the dead, but also of their resting places. This may be the major reason for his therianthropic representation, as a man with the head of a jackal; jackals were always to be found in or around a necropolis. Anubis is always shown colored black as that is color of a body once it has been embalmed. His zoomorphic form is apparently that of a jackal, though some scholars argue that it is actually a jackal/dog hybrid. Howard Carter, describing possibly the most well known Anubis statue of all, the Anubis statue from the tomb of Tutankhamen, mentions dog like ears and pointed muzzle, but the low slung tail of a jackal.

No, this time it is even more serious than any of those headline news stories. You see 14 people have been murdered in one month. This record number is down from the 96 people murdered in one month previously. But one has to ask why is all this occurring? Currently we also have problems here in Arizona as well where 4 people have been killed and 40 people shot at night by secret attackers. In Phoenix where this is occurring the population base is 3.5 million and even though this is a tragic problem. The real problem is that crime is on the rise. Now in the case of Washington DC our nations capital the population is quite small actually and for this many murders there is a real problem. Why is our Nations capital full of lawlessness? Is it that the worst of humanity lives there? Is it because those who work there are above the law? Washington DC Sniper Killings Documentary

Top Documentary Films: Understanding Anarchy
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Understanding Anarchy Anarchists believe in individuality. Everyone and anyone, no matter of what gender, skin color, or race you are, you are still a person. You can believe in whatever religion you want to believe, wear what you want to wear, and live how you want to live. You're a person just like everybody else! Why should you have people tell you how to live your life? Why do "We, The People" need a bunch of rich, old men with their own agendas to tell us how to spend our money, tell us what is right, what is wrong, when to sleep, what to eat and drink? Don't most people know inherently what is right and wrong, good from bad? Ask yourself, if there were no more laws tomorrow, would you become a murderer and thief? No? Well, no one else would either. People who murder and steal do these things regardless of laws. Let's get rid of the reasons that people do these things instead. People are intelligent enough to make their own decisions. They know what's right and they know what's wrong and I'm sure they can learn from their mistakes when they are made. So, even though there are no laws and nobody officially running anarchy such as a president, dictator or King, people can control themselves. We're not sheep wondering mindlessly along fields, are we? But the whole idea of anarchy has been around for centuries. Ancient Greek philosophy of Stoicism (a system having the same ideas of anarchy at the time of ancient Greece) was founded by Zeno of Citium said that wise men could and should evolve away from civil courts, government and rulers, acting eventually only by the universal law of reason and in accord with the universal brotherhood among human beings. The first modern western thinker to greatly develop and publish an anarchist philosophy was Englishman William Godwin, who supported the cause of an evolutionary anarchism reminiscent of Zeno's Stoicism. Benjamin Tucker, the great American individualist, got his anarchism ideas from Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and Josiah Warren, both of whom opposed Capitalism and The State, and both of whom embraced individualism. All three men focused on the ideas of a free and individualized economy. The most famous anarchist is Emma Goldman, whose anarchy-communism was based on the philosophy of Russian aristocrat, Prince Peter Kropotkin. His anarchist philosophy was collectivist, communist and non-violent, though he doesn't seem to have rejected violence and revolution.

Mysteries of the Kabbalah Decoded - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Mysteries of the Kabbalah Decoded - Documentary Films According to Kabbalah tradition, the first man was a Mekubal, as were Abraham, Issac, Jacob and many others. Among the more noted of the Kabbalah books you can find the Book of the Angel Raziel, which belonged to Adam, and to the Book of Creation, which is ascribed to Abraham, followed by the Book of Zohar, which was written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. As a matter of fact, there is no way to determine the true author of these books. Historical Development You need to differentiate between Kabbalistic research and Kabbalistic faith. According to faith, Kabbalah began with Adam, the first Man. Research puts the origins of Kabbalah at around 1,000 years ago, with written material appearing at around the 12 century in Spain. By this division, the entire Ashkenazi lore isn't part of the Kabbalah. The Mekubalim don't recognise this distinction, and according to them, 'Kabbalah' contains all Jewish Mystic Lore. The Kabbalah has roots in the Second Temple period, with various texts attributed to Chazal and the Gaonim. During this time, learning the Kabbalah was limited to Jews over the age of 40, with some stipulating that it shouldn't be taught at all. Towards the end of the 10th century, with Greek and Arab philosophy influences, the Kabbalah withdrew from the limelight. Towards the end of the 12th century, the first book of Kabbalah appeared in Provance, France. This book was attributed to the Chachami Mishna, and named 'The Bright Book'. This book is considered the cornerstone of Kabbalistic lore. The book contains a number of sermons, with the most important writing being The Book of Creation. The Book of Creation appears to be older, however it is probable that the Book of Creation is a collection of stories and writings that predated The Bright Book. The Book of Creation is unique in that it describes the creation of the world and the souls by God. This book also serves as the base for Practical Kabbalah, as it is specifically mentioned that the soul is created by 22 letters, and from this the use of amulets and name changes to change a person's life began. From Provance, the Kabbalah spread throughout the whole Jewish world. After Provance, Italy became the world centre for Kabbalah, and around that time appeared the first copies of the Book of Zohar. Again, academic research and belief differ here, as academics attribute this book to Moses Di Lion, whereas tradition attributes the book to Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. The book wasn't widely known, but after the Jews were expelled from Spain it was re-discovered, and ever since then is the most influential book of the Kabbalah. In the 15th century, the centre of Kabbalah moved again, this time to Safed, where the Kabbalah began spreading to the common folk as well. The Kaballah influenced Rabbis and poets, and so became an inseparable part of the Jewish spirit. As a result of the Kabbalah, all sorts of self appointed doomsday prophets started up, however they didn't amount to very much. during this time, Israel became the spiritual centre for the Jewish people, and the tradition of visiting the graves of Tsadikim was begun by Mekubalim, who came to Israel to visit the graves of the Mishna and Zohar scholars buried in Safed. Students of the Kabbalah in general and specifically, the Ari Kabbalah, left Israel and spread the lore to everywhere there were Jews. The Kabbalah was a great influence on the Jews in the East and North Africa, where it became accessible to all, not just the learned and scholars. This led to Practical Kabbalah being developed to a far greater extent in North Africa, as opposed to Europe and Israel. From the 17th centry onwards, people dealt with the Kabbalah less and less, but there were still Talmudic students and Rabbis who continued studying the lore, which now, as then, is still based on two central books. The Book of Zohar, and the Talmud. Nowadays, Kabbalah is becoming popular again, with the influx of celebrities such as Madonna reviving the interest in the Jewish lore.

How Banks Work - History of Banks Documentary - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES How Banks Work - History of Banks Documentary The history and purpose of the Federal Reserve Bank is not what is commonly believed to be the truth. Its function in the financial affairs of the United States carries a definite dark side to it - one that would shock the average US citizen. Here are some details about this 5-part article series exposing the real truth behind this very powerful agency and why the nation listens when it speaks. This first article lays the foundation of the history of the Federal Reserve by pointing out why there ever was an attempt to grab the controls of the reigns of agencies that produce the money in the US. Going back to England, it was shown that central banks have known for centuries that controlling the making and lending of currency to a nation ultimately means the power to control that nation. Before the Revolutionary War, the King of England, George III, working with the central Bank of England, had rejected the new currency of the Colonists in America. In its place, he wanted the Colonies to borrow English currency from the central bank of England with interest. The idea of being instantly indebted to England was quickly rejected by the Colonists - and war soon broke out. Benjamin Franklin believed that this action by the greedy money manipulators was probably the single most important reason behind the War. The War did not end the problem of the money manipulators, however, but their efforts to get control of America's money were renewed after the War. The international bankers program was to lend money with interest and to control its distribution. Through this means they would create a never-ending indebtedness of that nation to the central bankers which would continually make those bankers unbelievably wealthy. This was so much of an ongoing work by the international bankers that a number of attempts to establish a central bank in the United States had to be destroyed. Several attempts were even made in the twentieth century. At last, a situation was created that led many Americans to rush to withdraw their money from banks immediately. The false belief that it was failing, was all that was needed for the formation of a central bank system to be created in the United States. A secret meeting in 1910 had laid the plans for the Federal Reserve Act. It was passed and signed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1913. After he learned more about the truth of what it would mean to the American people, he deeply regretted it and called himself a "most unhappy man" for having brought it about - largely because of the campaign favors that it would bring him. One of the supposed reasons that the Federal Reserve was created was that it would create a much greater stability in our banking system. The appearance of failing banks brought the illusion that people needed this stability. It would be able to control inflation, and much more. The truth, however, is that financial chaos and panic was deliberately created by their actions - and many independent banks were destroyed in an effort to bring them under its control.

Top Documentary Films: Curing Cancer Full Film
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Curing Cancer Full Film Getting diagnosed with cancer is a very scary thing. Even though treatment for the disease has come a long way in the last 50 years, it is still one of the deadliest diseases humans face. One of the first choices they have to make is how they want to treat it when patients are diagnosed of cancer. They work with their doctors to determine the best way to beat the disease. Here is a guide to cancer treatments such as breast, lung and prostate cancer treatment. Chemotherapy Chemotherapy is one of the most important medical developments of the last century. It is one of the most popular lung, bone and prostate cancer treatments. During these treatments, patients are hooked up to an IV that delivers poisonous chemicals into their bloodstreams. This poison will hopefully cure the disease by killing the cancer cells with its toxicity. That same poison also kills healthy cells in patients. That is why patients receiving chemotherapy get so sick, lose their hair and feel pain while they are undergoing treatment. Radiation Therapy Radiation therapy works on the same basic principle as chemotherapy. It uses a harmful thing, in this case radiation, in the hopes of killing the tumor without harming the patient too greatly. Doctors use radiation-emitting devices to target radiation directly at the spot where the tumor is. The radiation will kill the cancer cells, but it also will kill healthy cells. This leads to many of the same horrible side effects that chemotherapy patients suffer, including vomiting, lack of energy and weakness. Also, radiation can only be used if the disease is localized to one area of the body. Radiation therapy is ineffective to cure cancer if it has spread at all. Surgery This is another popular form of treatment. It is a good option when the patient has a tumor that has not spread beyond one area of the body. Doctors cut into the body to remove the tumor. This procedure carries the risks that all surgeries do, but it does not lead to the horrible side effects that chemotherapy and radiation therapy cause. Treatment with Nutrition Cancer can both be prevented and treated with a healthy diet. There are substances in many foods called antioxidants. These antioxidants are very effective at eliminating rogue cells in the body. Rogue cells are abnormal cells that do not belong in the body, which includes cancer cells. There are many foods that are very high in antioxidants. These foods include blueberries, pomegranates, beans, cranberries, blackberries, apples, pecans, strawberries and prunes. Though they can't always cure cancer, they almost always help in the fight to beat the affliction. These antioxidant-laden foods should be consumed in large quantities by people who are healthy to help them avoid developing the disease. http://www.webmd.com/cancer/features/cancer-cure-closer http://www.cancertutor.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cancer_research http://www.cancercouncil.com.au/70762/research/research-news/latest-news/a-single-cure-for-cancer-freddy-sitas/ http://www.foxnews.com/health/2015/01/29/8-year-old-suggests-possible-cure-for-cancer/ http://curekidscancer.com/

Inside Oil Tankers - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Inside Oil Tankers - Documentary Films All over the world, tanker operations are constantly moving. Oil tankers are ships specially designed for the bulk transport of either unrefined crude oil or petrochemicals. Their size classes can range from coastal or inland tankers of a few thousand metric tons of deadweight (DWT) to a colossal amount of 550,000 DWT. These giant specialized ships transport approximately two billion metric tons of oil across the sea every year. Crude oil is one of the world's most consumed sources of energy. Oil tankers, therefore, play a significant role in the way the country operates. Because of the products they are built to carry, without proper maintenance, these mammoth ships of black gold can also pose a threat on the environment. To ensure that an oil tanker does not severely impact the environment, oil companies must employ an expert and highly experienced ship management service to oversee tanker operations. They must also routinely check their oil tankers for maintenance purposes. Fixing the smallest dent, scratch or crack can mean the difference between safe sailing across miles of seawater and a devastating oil spill. On board the ship, safety measures should be strictly imposed. Because of the hazardous - and often flammable - nature of the materials being transported, the possession of flammable objects should be avoided if not prohibited entirely to avoid accidents, which can threaten the lives of the people on the ship, as well as the surrounding marine life. Whether at sea or anchored at a dock, tanker operations and safety measures should still be strictly implemented to prevent the ship from negatively affecting the environment.

Viking Ships - War Machines of the Past - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Viking Ships - War Machines of the Past Documentary The European history is not only vast and interesting, but has been a major contributing factor to the developments of the world. The technological advances, cultural revolutions, continuous wars, devastating epidemics and gigantic empires have all played a part in what the world is today. The Viking civilization that dominated Northern Europe during 793 ? 1066 AD were known more for their naval prowess and raid attacks than anything else. The Vikings had a unique culture and traditions, and even though they were involved in large scale pillaging and warfare, they followed a high code of honor both in warfare and justice. The Viking ships basically fall in three categories, large transport vessels (Knarr), Longships, for military use, and small coastal sailing and exploration vessels (Karv). Although as often depicted, all Viking ships did not carry the ?dragonhead? or ?serpent? figures. They were used mainly on warships or ships owned by high-ranked people. The Knarr were known for their maneuverability and loading capacity. The other designs included Byrdling, Skute and Ferje. The longships also had a number of variations, the Busse, the Skeide, the Snekke, the Sud, and Drakkar. The Busse were reportedly large capacity Viking ships with cargo capability, such as the "Ormen Lange" of King Olav Tryggvason, and they could have as many as 35 pair of oars. The Skeide was a Busse variation with smaller size and capacity. The Snekke were the most common ships, used by Canute the Great, and William the Conqueror, renowned for their speed and durability. The Suds evolved near the end of the Viking era and are said to be the biggest Longships. The Drakkar are the most easily recognizable Viking ships due to their distinct dragon or serpent design that symbolized the superior rank of the commanding warrior. The basic characteristic of Viking ships can be summed up as having a single mast, exceptionally long parallel oars, and the clinker design used for construction, which involved overlapping thick wooden boards.

Top Documentary Films: Complete History of the Sword
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Complete History of the Sword Every person has a tendency to accumulate something either intentionally or unintentionally. Some people buy objects or items that they deem important or valuable while others are lucky to just accidentally come by several items of the same kind. Either way, a person who has in his possession several items of the same kind or classification can already be called a collector. Some people collect dolls, memorabilia, toys, ceramics, guns, and other items. Other items that are very good collection pieces because of their historical and financial value are swords. The fiercest and most fine-looking swords that were responsible for wars and bloodshed were those from the Orient. Thus, a sword collection without those beautiful Oriental swords would be incomplete. One of the most notable Oriental swords that should be included in any sword collection is the sword of the Shinto Katana Samurai. An original would be quite expensive especially if it is in good condition but it is very unusual for such an original sword to be found these days. The only available option for sword collectors is the chance of owning a modern version of the Shinto Katana Samurai which would cost no less than six hundred dollars. But the ancestors of former Oriental Samurais may just have an original Katana Samurai stashed in their basements so collectors should try to make contact these people if they really want to own the original thing. Another sword type that is worth inclusion in every sword collection is the bamboo stick katanas which were used as an alternative by the Samurais in the 1860s. This type of sword, which sells for no less than five hundred dollars, came to life after the banning of the carrying of swords publicly. This invention shows the ingenuity of the Orientals who found a way to incorporate a samurai blade at the end pf every bamboo cane used as a walking stick. While original swords command a very high price, this would not mean that copycats or reproductions are already priced reasonably. There are sword reproductions that are still priced highly starting from a thousand dollars. Europeans also have their own swords which were paired with a shield. Thus, the design of the sword is such that it allows for the grip of one hand while the other hand is eyed for the shield. Knives and Swords make wonderful collections, ones that are filled with history and events https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sword http://listverse.com/2013/11/16/10-mysterious-swords-from-legend-and-history/ http://io9.com/5831683/a-brief-history-of-the-ancient-science-of-sword-making http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-famous-deadly-swords.php http://www.swordhistory.info/

A simple search on Google will find information about city maps, the history of this remarkable city, the many things you can do in Las Vegas other than gambling, an abundant and interesting list of attractions around the city, and a mind boggling array of Las Vegas Specials, Las Vegas Packages, and Las Vegas Deals. Las Vegas is the largest city in Nevada, and is growing at a remarkable rate each year. The city is often referred to as Sin City due to the existence of gambling, serving alcoholic beverages any time of the day or night, and the many degrees of adult entertainment available. Prostitution is legal in some nearby counties, but is not legal in the City of Las Vegas. While many may refer to Las Vegas as sin city, the local tourist promoters prefer to call it The Entertainment Capital of the World. The City has a very glamorous reputation and is a favorite setting for many movie and television companies. The quality of entertainment available is unequaled in any other city its size and a favorite vacation spot for many celebrities. What is essentially referred to as Las Vegas is really a combination of the City of Las Vegas which is commonly known as the downtown area, and a 4 to 6 mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard which is mostly outside the Las Vegas city limit, known as the Las Vegas Strip. Las Vegas started its rapid growth in 1931 when work started on the building of Hoover Dam. Las Vegas population grew from 5,000 citizens to 25,000 with many newcomers looking for work on the Dam. Gambling was also legalized in 1931 and Las Vegas began its rise to become the gambling capital of the world. The city issued its first gaming license in 1931 to the Northern Club, and with the abundant electricity now available from Hoover Dam Fremont Street became known as Glitter Gulch.

The most ancient galaxies were approximately one-tenth the size of our own large spiral Galaxy, the Milky Way, but they were just as brilliant, because they were ferociously giving birth to a vast multitude of fiery, searing-hot baby stars. These extremely bright protogalaxies served as the "seeds" of mature galaxies like our own, that twirl like star-splattered pin-wheels in the darkness of intergalactic Space. In November 2013, astronomers announced that they had managed to put together a detailed portrait of how our Milky Way came together, using images from the venerable Hubble Space Telescope (HST), which captured the growth of 400 similar galaxies at different stages of evolution. How did our Milky Way assemble itself into the majestic, starlit, whirlpool-like structure that it now is? Understanding the Mysteries of the Milky Way Universe

Top Documentary Films: How the Persian Empire Was Built
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: How the Persian Empire Was Built I have shown in this series of articles that there are several pieces of evidence that the Persian Empire did not last the 200 years proposed by historians but only 21 years as described in the Old Testament. This is an idea I presented in detail in my book, The Fourth Day: Why the Bible is Historically Accurate. My article, "Old Testament History Revised-Jeremiah's Eclipse" provides astronomical evidence from the Bible for this idea and my article, "Old Testament History Revised-The 390 Days of Ezekiel" provides evidence from a famous prophecy from the biblical book of Ezekiel for this idea. This article provides archaeological support for a "short" Persian Empire based on information described in Peter James' book, Centuries of Darkness. Archaeological Findings of the Babylonian and Persian Empires Recall that earlier in this book I proposed that the Babylonian Empire's reign over Judah occurred about 180 years later than the Conventional Biblical Chronology dating. The Conventional Biblical Chronology dates the Babylonian captivity of Judah as 585 B.C. while the Fourth Day Biblical Chronology places it in 401 B.C. If the Fourth Day Chronology is accurate shouldn't it be reflected in the archaeology? What about Judah's migration from Persia in accordance of the edict by Cyrus II to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem? According to the Conventional Biblical Chronology this would have occurred in 539 B.C. however the Fourth Day Biblical Chronology dates this event in 350 B.C. Let's allow Peter James' book settle the matter. According to the Biblical record during the reign of King Cyrus the Persian it was a very active time in Israel. Those that acquired wealth in the Babylonian and Persian reigns of Babylon returned home. The land was resettled, the Temple rebuilt and walls of Jerusalem were rebuilt. Despite all this activity Peter James records that there were few findings for the 539-332 BC timeframe in the region. (Centuries of Darkness, page 170) If the Fourth Day Biblical Chronology is the correct model this lack of archaeological findings is easily explained. Persia was only present from 352 B.C. to 331 B.C. so there should only be about either 21 years of artifacts present. If you believe the Conventional Chronology there would have been 207 years (539-332 B.C.) to indicate the presence of the Persians. The Persians were just not there for much of the period in question. Peter James states that information is lacking on many levels. A Persian strata is difficult to see and few architectural remains are present. Those strata that are present are of the timeframe after 450 BC (there is almost no evidence of finds prior to this period). According to Peter James other archaeologists have lamented the fact that to be such a relative recent timeframe in history there is surprisingly few finds for this period. (page 170, Centuries of Darkness). All these observations just enforce the observation that the Persian Empire was a short-lived event in the history of Judah. Peter James doesn't have much better news about the Jewish Exile to Babylon. James paints a bleak picture for archaeological findings in the timeframe 587-539 BC that represents the Babylonian Conquest. More than one hundred years of Biblical history is barely evident in archaeological evidence. Peter James poses the question: does the time period from 587-450 BC in Palestine represent some kind of dark period in Israelite and Babylonian history? (Centuries of Darkness, pages 170-171). Indeed not. Since, according to Fourth Day Biblical Chronology, the Babylonians and the Persians did not show up in the lives of Judah until after 450 B.C. there is certainly no reason to believe in a 'Dark Age' in Palestine. The evidence speaks for itself, the Babylonians and the Persians were just not there from 587 B.C. to 450 B.C. They were not there because the Persian Empire only lasted twenty one years, not the more than 200 years that the conventional chronology model claims. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persian_Empire http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achaemenid_Empire http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Iran http://www.ushistory.org/civ/4e.asp http://www.ancient.eu/Persia/ https://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Persian_Empire.html http://www.eduplace.com/kids/socsci/ca/books/bkf3/writing/02_empires.pdf

Top Documentary Films: Why the Aztec Really Disappeared
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Why the Aztec Really Disappeared The Aztecs were a fairly advanced and powerful that could be compared to ancient Rome in terms of its level of technological sophistication. The Aztecs were not as sophisticated as their contemporaries in all areas of science and technology but they were very advanced in areas that they needed to be and did very well with what little they had and what the obstacles that they had to face. The Aztecs used many different technologies and their sophisticated knowledge of many sciences to try to regulate and better their daily lives. The Aztecs used a combination of astronomy, canal building and highly developed agricultural science to plant the right plants at the right time in order to feed their empire. Astronomy was used to make calendars which would have determined the best time to begin to plant and harvest each food. Canal building and irrigation allowed the Aztecs to feed their plants rich riverbed soil by building island farms in the middle of rivers and canals, a farm of this variety was a Chinampa. Building farms in the middle of rivers allowed the Aztecs to quickly deliver goods to the nearest market. The Aztecs also built farms on slopes by building terraces from the soil, this also served to limit soil erosion. Due to the high demand for food that existed in the Aztec empire, slash and burn were also common methods of farming, this also lead to an ever increasing demand for land. The societal progress of the Aztecs relied heavily on math to determine the best date to do certain things, the construction of buildings, canals, roads, taxes and even religious events. The Aztecs created 3 calendars each having significance in a different area of life; a ritual calendar, an annual and a long count calendar. Even though the ritual calendar was dedicated to religion, all of the calendars had some degree of religious value as Aztec society tied everything to religion. As sophisticated as the Aztecs were they lacked some technologies that were available elsewhere and therefore had their own unique response to problems. The most shocking thing about Aztec technology is that there is a lack of the use the wheel and pack animals, to compensate the Aztecs had good roads, professional runners, many rest stops situated every 6-10 miles, river highways, many causeways and secure toll roads. Another unusual technological trait of this civilization was that metallurgy did not go very far beyond copper, tin, lead and jewellery gold and silver. To compensate for the limited knowledge in metallurgy they used obsidian in place of metal in many tools which required sharpness.

Increasing populations and the advent of towns and cities brought with it the need for communication and commerce between those growing population centers. A road built in Egypt by the Pharaoh Cheops around 2500 BC is believed to be the earliest paved road on record-a construction road 1,000 yards long and 60 feet wide that led to the site of the Great Pyramid. Since it was used only for this one job and was never used for travel, Cheops's road was not truly a road in the same sense that the later trade routes, royal highways, and impressively paved Roman roads were.

Top Documentary Films: The Hard Life of an Ostrich
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: The Hard Life of an Ostrich Ostriches have been highly sort after for their feathers, their hides and their meat since Roman times. Unlike chickens you can even use them for pulling carts and racing, which perhaps makes them one of the most truly versatile fowl known to man. Native to Africa the birds were particularly popular in the nineteenth century in the fashion industry, with their feathers being used to adorn all-manner of millinery and clothing. South African Ostriches became so popular as a design feature for the fashionistas of the day that the populations began to decline radically during the 19th century, until with a typically South African spirit of enterprise, and sheer guts, the locals decided to start farming Ostriches commercially. Around this period farmers also spotted their potential as the main ingredient in the nation's favourite snack, biltong. The trend for fluffy hats lasted a long time, but sadly began to decline shortly after the First World War, leaving a number of farms with large flocks of these birds with attitude on their hands. Unperturbed, the South African farmers found new markets for their unusual produce. It would be hard to describe the birds themselves as 'beautiful' but they certainly have plenty of meat on them. Ostrich meat is also incredibly healthy, low in fat and an excellent source of proteins versus other red meats. Commercial farming for meat has never looked back, and as ostriches are incredibly adaptable, Ostrich farms have sprung up worldwide, even in unexpected places such as Lincolnshire in the UK. Back in South Africa Ostrich meat has gained rapid popularity as a healthier alternative to beef. Most game is less fatty than beef and other red meats and despite the slowdown in demand for the birds' feathers farmers adapted quickly to produce 'Biltong'. Biltong is a basically an air dried meat, which is pretty much a national dish in South Africa. The earliest European settlers were no stranger to dried and cured meats - it being the only way to get meat to last the long journey from Europe to the furthest reaches of Africa. On arrival in those pre-refrigeration days, biltong proved an ideal way to preserve meat, which was in abundance in the wild. In some respects, South Africa was built on the stuff! Many cultures can be closely identified with their cuisines. Ostrich meat biltong is not only delicious and healthy, but says something about the very origins and tenacity of modern day South Africa. A mix of European traditions and African scary birds, with some tasteful hats thrown in along the way, ostrich biltong is a unique but very tasty and typically enterprising sample of South African culture.

According criminalists serial killers who murder three or more people differ from single homicide killers because they kill mostly women and strangers. Though it might be unpleasant to read about you can learn about crime prevention by studying these predators of the human world. When it comes to self defense serial killers are the worst-case scenario and you have to be ready to deal with this type of nightmare situation if it ever happens to you. The Son of Sam ambushed couples out on dates, Ted Bundy charmed women into going with him, and Charles Manson sent drug crazed hippies to do his killing. They're all serial killers and they do share common traits, but all have them came at their victims in a different way. Now nobody can be vigilant all the time, but you can do simple things to prevent these predators from catching you off guard. If you're on a date find a safe place to hang out with other people around, and don't assume because you in a familiar surroundings that you'll be safe. Make sure all your doors and windows are secure and think about investing in alarm system. Also don't put off making repairs to your car or home when safety is concern. Like with other criminals the harder you make it for them the more likely it is that they will move on to an easier target. Now let's say you have been careful and somehow one of these individuals got past all your defenses and you're now face to face with them. Chances are if they haven't killed you already they want to take you somewhere so they can torture, rape, and kill you in a controlled environment. Going with them is a completely unacceptable option because if you go with them hoping they won't hurt you your chances of escaping alive will only diminish not increase. The bottom line is you don't know who you're dealing with and you don't know their intentions, so you need to fight like your life depends on it because it probably does.

Mafia Hitmen - Behind the Story Documentary
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Mafia Hit Men - Behind the Story Documentary Each regional Mafia is made up of various Families or gangs. The no. may range from a few to over a 100 depending upon the region. Each Family has separate business dealings and tend to stay out of each other's way. But sometimes their business enterprises may intermingle with each other to a very large extent, depending upon their proximity to each other and the nature of the business. The Mafia had a very effective structure. It prevented the higher-ranked members of the Families to be responsible for the criminal enterprises. And any lower-ranked Mafioso could easily be bailed out of jail by cleaning his record and bribing the judges. The cops were also generally of the Mafia's payroll and "looked the other way" whenever the Mafia were involved. The leader of each Mafia Family was known as the Boss or Don. He made all the major decisions and all the Mafia income ultimately came to him. His authority was required to control the Mafia members and to resolve any disputes. Beneath the Don is the Underboss. The Underboss is the second-in-command but the power he had varied with different Mafia Families. In some cases he wielded enormous power and in some he wielded relatively much less. Some Underbosses were trained to succeed the Don on the event of his death or retirement. There is a position between the Don and the Underboss too - The Consigliere. He acts like an adviser to the Don and is supposed to make impartial decisions based upon fairness and gor the good of the Mafia, rather thank on personal vendettas. This p[osition is genrally apoointed by the Don but sometimes it is also elected by members of the Mafia. The Consigliere also acts like the mouth of the Don often and commands huge respect just like the Don. He is, however, not directly involved with the criminal enterprises of the Mafia. Just below the Underboss are the Capos. The number of Capos varied between the Families and depended upon the overall size of the Mafia Family. A Capo acts like a lieutenant or captain, leading his own section of the Family. He operates specific activities of the Mafia. A Capo is regarded to be successful only if he earns a huge amount of money for the Mafia. He keeps some of his earnings and the rest are passed up to the Underboss and ultimately the Don. Below the Capo's are the made-men and soldiers. Made-men are the ultimate enforcers of the Family who have proved themselves and command respect from their fellow Mafioso. Soldier's are the lowest Mafia members. They do all the "dirty work" and as such are generally the ones arrested by the police. Sooldiers command little respect and make relatively less money. The number of soldiers and made-men belonging to a Capo may vary tremendously.

Top Documentary Films: Is Smallpox Still a Threat?
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Is Smallpox Still a Threat? Biological terrorism. Germ warfare. These words can strike fear into the hearts of the population, as people wonder when the next terrorist threat will arise. The danger of bioterrorism hangs over our heads like a modern sword of Damocles. We all remember the anthrax scares from 2003, right? Anthrax has certain advantages as a biological weapon. It's a common agricultural disease. It can be easily obtained from Third World countries from blood scrapings off of diseases cattle. It also has a durable bacterial spore form which is convenient for dispersion via aerosols. However, it is not highly contagious; in fact, there are no known cases of person-to-person transmission. For maximum impact, the unpatronized grains of anthrax culture must be inhaled, and getting the right grain size to ensure both dispersion and inhalation can be difficult. These factors severely limit its effectiveness as a biological threat. What about other pathogens, such as choleral, yellow fever or the ebola virus? These typically present challenges as well. Sometimes, it can be difficult to isolate a sufficiently virulent strain, which is especially important when the pathogen has limited transmissibility. In addition, there are significant engineering obstacles; for example, there is the challenge of dispersing aerosolized germ powders through a tiny nozzle without any clumping or clogging. Of course, any sort of biological agent is extremely dangerous to cultivate or deploy. This reduces the threat that they present, as only a lunatic would deliberately attempt to handle such weapons. Unfortunately, history has shown that there is no shortage of lunatics in terrorist circles. This is where smallpox comes into the picture. "But wait!" one might say. "Hasn't smallpox already been eradicated? The World Health Organization embarked on a massive immunization program, finally declaring in 1977 that smallpox had been wiped out." That's only partially true, though. While smallpox is no longer a threat to the populace at large, samples of the smallpox vaccine were still kept in government labs within the USA and Russia. In 1992, a Soviet defector to the United Kingdom revealed that he had overseen an extensive (and illegal) program for weaponizing smallpox. Another Soviet scientist confirmed this claim, and expressed his belief that unemployed or underpaid scientists may have clandestinely sold some of the smallpox samples to rogue terrorist nations. Western intelligence agencies have reason to believe that three countries - North Korea, Iraq and Russia - have the capacity to deploy smallpox as a weapon of mass destruction. Other countries are likewise suspected of having inadvertently or deliberately retained specimens of the virus; these nations include China, Cuba, India, Iran, Israel, Pakistan and Yugoslavia. Smallpox is not highly contagious; however, it can be transmitted through prolonged contact, and the symptoms can be severe. Apart from the usual fever, it can also leave someone covered with hideous pustules (rather like an outbreak of chicken pox, but many times worse) and can produce permanent scarring.

Queen Sheba - Who Is She Really? Documentary Films

Documentary Films The story of the Queen of Sheba appears in religious texts sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Described in the Bible as simply a Queen of the East, modern scholars believe she came from the Kingdom of Axum in Ethiopia, the Kingdom of Saba in Yemen, or both. Their main clue is that she brought bales of incense with her as a gift; frankincense only grows in these two areas. Both countries claim her as theirs. Given that they are separated by only 25 kilometers of water, both could be right. In these tales the Queen of Sheba is a seeker of truth and wisdom and she has heard that King Solomon of Israel is a very wise man. She travels on camel to Jerusalem to meet him and test his knowledge with questions and riddles. With her she brings frankincense, myrrh, gold and precious jewels. King Solomon has heard of Sheba and her great kingdom. He has also heard that she has a strange feature, a left foot that is cloven like that of a goat and a hairy leg. Eager to see if the story is true, he has the floor of his court polished until it is like glass. When the Queen of Sheba walks across the floor, Solomon sees the reflection of her cloven foot. Right in front of his eyes, it transforms and becomes normal. Queen Sheba - Who Is She Really? Documentary Films

Top Documentary Films: The Real History of Troy
Top Documentary Films: The Real History of Troy Helen of Troy has become famous for her role in sparking the 10 year war between Troy and the combined leaders of Greece. This is only a small aspect of an interesting mythological character. This article will tell the story of Helen from her birth to her death. Helen was the child of Leda, a queen of Sparta and Zeus. Zeus is said to have come to her in the guise of a swan after he had been chased by an eagle. Not long after she became pregnant. She also slept with her husband, Tyndareus the king of Sparta on the same night that she fell pregnant to Zeus. The result was two sets of twins - Kastor (Caster) and Polydeukes (Polydeuces) as the male twins and Helen and Clytaemestra (Klytaemestra) as the female twins. In some stories Leda gave birth to an egg which contained Helen, Kastor and Polydeukes, with Clytaemestra born normally. Clytaemestra was the daughter of Tyndareus and not Zeus. Helen was abducted by the Athenian hero Theseus and his friend Pirithous when she was still as child. Theseus decided that he would keep her until she was old enough to marry. She was returned to Sparta after her twin brothers captured Aethra the mother of Theseus and held her as a hostage. This early event set the scene for the most famous story surrounding Helen. Helen had many suitors which concerned Tyndareus because if he chose one man over another it could lead to fighting between the suitors. He told the suitors that if they were to present themselves as a suitor to his step daughter they must swear an oath to defend her if the need ever arose. All suitors present agreed to this. Shortly after, Menelaus was chosen as the new husband of Helen. Helen and Menelaus were given the kingdom of Sparta (Tyndareus stepped down as king). In an age of basileis (chieftain rulers) it was normal that the chief stepped aside for the better man. The marriage was at first normal with Helen behaving as a faithful wife to Menelaus. Meanwhile, Paris a prince of Troy had been chosen to judge a beauty competition between Athene, Hera and Aphrodite. They had all claimed the golden apple of discord because it was inscribed with the words 'to the fairest.' Modesty was not the strong point of the goddesses and each believed that they should own it. Zeus decided that only a mortal could decide who was the fairest in order to avoid the gods coming to blows over any decision made. Paris was chosen as judge. The goddesses offered him bribes so that he would choose them. Hera offered Paris kingship over Europe, Athene offered greatness in battle and Aphrodite offered the most beautiful woman in the world. Paris was a shallow character and had no interest in greatness as a ruler or in war, however women were of interest to him. He chose Aphrodite and awarded her the golden apple of discord. He promptly set off to claim his prize: Helen. Paris arrived at the court of Menelaus pretending to be an ambassador from Troy. He soon left with Helen. Some stories assert that she went willingly, while others maintain that she was raped and taken against her will. Some stories say that Helen was dispatched to Troy but never arrived, instead she landed in Egypt and spent the next 10 years there with her moral standing intact. The oath that all of Helen's suitors had sworn years before was now used to gather the Greek rulers together. They finally gathered at Aulis and set sail for Troy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troy http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/849 http://www.allaboutturkey.com/troy.htm

Software is available for these sort of records, though many ranchers still like to use the old pencil-and-paper method over the computer tablet. Fix and maintain fences and buildings. Fences are more important and more often fixed than buildings. Pasture permanent perimeter fencing should be checked regularly, ideally before and after moving cattle from one pasture to another. Fix and maintain machinery. All machinery involved in a ranching operation must be maintained and in good working order to be able to be used in the fields every year. Grease, oil, inspect, replace and repair any and all parts of machinery, from the tractor to the combine harvester. Manage your grazing operation. A big part of a ranch is the space utilized for cattle to graze. Pastures and grass must be monitored in order for them to keep producing healthy stands season after season, year after year. Know your stocking rates, rest/recovery periods, grazing pressure and soil quality to determine how long your pastures and range can be grazed. Ideally, you should manage your grazing operation on your ranch so that you are improving and maintaining soil quality, water quality, and habitat for other wildlife that reside on your ranch. Manage how you are feeding your cattle. There will be times when you cannot graze your cattle on pasture. This means you need to feed your cattle feedstuffs like hay and/or silage instead. Winter time or times of drought are particular times when feeding cattle is necessary, or any time when grazing cattle is no longer practical. You have a choice of feeding your cattle in a drylot, or adopting more sustainable and lower-cost practices of winter grazing them. Note though that the greatest source of financial loss is during winter and/or drought feeding, and is what makes or breaks the ranching business. Manage your forage/grain enterprises. Not all ranches are the same. Some may just have hay and grazing enterprises, others may have hay, silage, crop, drylot and grazing enterprises. Whatever you choose to have or have already, manage them according to when to seed, fertilize, spray herbicide, cut and harvest. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranch http://www.ranchland.com/type/cattle-ranches-for-sale http://www.king-ranch.com/operations/ranching/cattle/ http://arizonaexperience.org/land/cattle-ranching http://www.wikihow.com/Run-a-Cattle-Ranch

The Mystery of the Eel - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES The Mystery of the Eel - Documentary Films Believe it or not, according to taxonomy or animal classification or categorization, though they look like snakes, eels are fishes as well. Based on scientific studies, there are more or less, 800 species, 110 genera, 19 families and four suborders that identify eels. In terms of the eels' practical usages for humans, eels are favorite food in some cultures. Japanese, Korean and Chinese traditions consider eels as a popular cuisine (like Unajuu and Unadon) that is in a way very expensive. In Hong Kong, a kilogram of eels could have a tag price reaching a 1000 HKD. Eels had been considered an aphrodisiac and stamina booster in some cultures and traditions and that had been one of the reasons why they are fondly consumed by humans. Freshwater eels like the European eels are also a delicacy in United States and some European countries and regions. Jellied eels have been a desired traditional east London food before the Second World War. The 'angulas' is a Basque dish that contains deep-fried young eels or elver. A taste for these deep-fried eels would definitely cost a fortune: a kilogram of elver would cost up to 1000 euro. The Maori is a New Zealand dish that has New Zealand longfin eels. According to research, the blood of eels is lethal for some mammals and humans as well. Nonetheless, due to digestive and food preparation processes, the toxin protein is being destroyed as well. How Long is This Elongated Fish? In terms of sizes, measurements or dimensions; eels are gauged in terms of their length. In average, eels' length is ranging from two inches (or five centimeters) up to 12.3 feet (or 3.75 meters). In terms of their average heaviness, an adult eel could weigh from thirty grams to more or less 25 kilograms. Though, in a way or two, they are considered as fishes; eels have some distinct characteristics from the fishes. Unlike fishes, eels do not possess pelvic fins and some types lack pectoral fins. Eels' anal and dorsal fins are amalgamated with the tail or the caudal fin that form a single strip running along the majority of the eels' length. Sea holes, the bottom layer of the ocean and shallow waters are the preferred dwelling places of the eels. These sea creatures are really fond of swimming. Some Recent Facts and Concerns The American eel, the European eel and the Japanese eel are categorized at the seafood red list by the Greenpeace International in 2010. The seafood red list of Greenpeace international is a record of fishes that are regularly sold in supermarkets all over the world and that have a very high danger of being supplied by untenable fisheries.

Understanding How the Federal Reserve Works - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Understanding How the Federal Reserve Works - Documentary Films For over a century, the privately owned and operated Federal Reserve Banking system has controlled this nation's money supply and credit. This institution and its economic policies are an enigma to most government officials and American citizens. To understand the Federal Reserve Bank, we have to first look at how it operates. We can then understand why our founding fathers were opposed to such a system for the United States of America. The Federal Reserve is what is known as a central bank. This bank is not regulated by the United States government. It creates the nation's money supply, loans it back to the government at interest, and regulates interest rates on the money it loaned out. However, the Federal Reserve, also commonly called "the Fed," does not loan out money held in its vaults. Instead, it creates new money for circulation by adding credits to an account. Thus, they are creating new money that never existed before. How much money can be created out of nothing? The Fed is only required to hold ten percent in reserves, and can loan out ninety percent. One of the Federal Reserve's publications states, "Of course, they (the banks) do not really pay out loans from the money received from deposits. What they do when they make loans is to accept promissory notes (money) for credits to the borrowers account." Actual currency is relative to the amount of new loans in demand. In short our system is based on debt. New money cannot be created unless banks issue new loans. The Federal Reserve is a private bank. It loans America it's currency at interest like any other bank, and process works like this. The federal government needs to make more money. It has the Federal Reserve print reserve notes (money) worth a set value. The federal government then prints treasury bonds, which is basically a promissory note to pay back the loan of the currency at interest. In simple terms our government is in debt to the Federal Reserve as soon as the money is created. If the government is in debt to the Fed, who makes the money, and the only way to get out debt is make more money, and the people who make the money are charging interest; how would the debt ever be paid off? It doesn't. As stated by the great scientist and creator of the light bulb, Thomas Edison wrote, "If our nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good, makes the bill good, also. The difference between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets money brokers collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%, whereas the currency pays nobody but those who contribute directly in some useful way. It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30 million in bonds and not $30 million in currency. Both are promises to pay, but one promise fattens the usurers and the other helps the people."

The Puerto Rican Trench reaches a depth of 8.4 km. The 5,900 km Peru-Chile Trench is the longest; it is bordered by volcanoes on South America. It was not until the modern concept of plate tectonics was developed that an understanding of how oceanic trenches form was established. These trenches are associated with both earthquakes and volcanic activity and are the result of the interaction of two crustal plates, one sliding under the other and descending. As the underlying plate moves downward at a steep angle into hotter regions of the earth (a process known as subduction),pulled by convection currents and gravity, a trench is formed where one plate slides below the other. Subduction produces additional heat by friction. Heat causes the plate to melt, and the resulting molten material (magma) rises to the surface, erupts, and builds volcanoes. The downward movement also causes earthquakes. Where two oceanic plates converge,a volcanic island arc system of basaltic rock develops in the direction of the downward-dipping plate, such as occurs in the Aleutian Islands. An oceanic-continental interaction creates mountains as sea sediments are squeezed and raised upward, and volcanoes as a result of the melting of the inclined plate. In this situation the molten material rises through the mountains, is contaminated by the surrounding rocks, and erupts high on the mountains to form andesite volcanoes.Trenches are relatively steeper on the landward side and gentler on the ocean basin side.Sediments accumulating in the trench derived from the erosion of the adjacent continent tend to be thicker on the landward side. The oceanic trenches are home to famous hydrothermal vent faunas.

The Secret World of Money - Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES The Secret World of Money - Documentary Films The subject of money is perhaps more discussed than any other subject. The reason is not far-fetched. Modern commerce has no other instrument or vehicle to operate than money. There is no market on earth where money is not required for its transactions. Because of the importance of money, many of the wars that were fought and are still being fought have money as their reason. Marriages have broken up because of money. Suicides and murders have been committed because of money. Splinter groups have emerged from churches and other religious groups because somebody wants to be in control of the church's treasury, not necessarily to enthrone accountability and transparency but to have unfettered access to money. Board meetings have degenerated into cheap politicking and boot licking because of money. The list of concerns that money has caused is endless. Highlighted below are some secret facts about money to help you become successful in your legitimate pursuit of riches: 1. Money Can Grow: Those who have made money legitimately, and in their own right, will tell you that they started their journeys to wealth with some 'peanuts' called seed capital. They have been able to grow the monies into vast estates mainly because they know how to nurture money to grow. Jim Rohn once said you should pity a man who inherits a million dollars without first being a millionaire in his heart. Look around you today, how many who made money by inheritance has been able to keep or grow it? A business journal once carried a poser in which people were asked to choose between ten million dollars and one cent that is capable of doubling itself for 45 days. Many readers in their response to the poser in the journal's next publication chose the $10,000,000.00. Later it was discovered that one cent would be over $360,000,000,000.00 in 45 days. The moral of the poser is that there is no small money. The money we despise today on account of its value/size can become very significant if we find a good use for it. Many have frittered away so-called loose change that could have grown over time and make them rich. The capital market is a veritable ground for the growing of money into huge amounts. There was a story about a civil servant who consistently invested in shares during his career in the civil service. His children inherited a princely $625,000.00 through his shares when he passed on. The wise man could have spent the monies he invested on shares in pepper soup joints because they were small in value but see what they grew to become with time. 2. Money Can Move: Money flows to where there are viable ideas just as electric current flows to a path of least resistance. Someone once said that if all the monies in the world were gathered and distributed equally to every human being on earth after some time the monies would redistribute themselves back to their original owners almost in the same proportion they were before the even distribution took place. It was Henry Ford (the man who made his wealth from manufacturing affordable cars for Americans) who said if all his money and business were lost through some mishap he would come up with another money spinner. If you know how to cause money to move in your direction you can turn any situation in which you find yourself into an opportunity to make legitimate money. When a man is poor but he is blessed with talented and wise children, his poverty cannot be perpetual because money will move in his direction via his children eventually. I cannot imagine Bill Gates' father starving for the rest of his life. Why? Because money has moved to his family through his whiz kid son. Conversely, when a man is financially well off and he is succeeded by stupid children who refuse to learn how to earn and grow money but would rather spend their inheritance, the wealth of their father will soon become history because money can move.

The Boy Who Lived Again - Documentary About Death
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES The Boy Who Lived Again - Documentary About Death The near-death experience (NDE) is an anomaly that defies the scientific logic of our modern world, and therefore it is often met by skepticism because it makes a case for immortality and the afterlife. This is understandable to me, since before my experience, as an atheist, I would also have been very skeptical of the NDE. If I had known about it then, I would certainly have rejected the reality of the experience on the grounds of lack of solid proof. A U.S. News & World Report's poll in 1997 estimated that up to 15 million Americans might have had a near-death experience. The most famous recent case is the near-death experience of ABC anchor, Bob Woodruff, who was almost killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq. He tells us about his experience that, "I don't remember hearing it. I remember that I - I went out for a minute. I saw my body floating below me and [a] kind of whiteness. I don't have much more information than that, whether it was heaven or something. I still don't know." Most scientific studies are done retrospectively many times years after the experience, but recent prospective studies have shown the experience to be scientifically predictable. In 2001, the first prospective study of near-death experiences was published in the international medical journal The Lancet. The study was lead by cardiologist Pim van Lommel, MD, and set up in ten different hospitals in Holland over a period of 13 years. In this time period, 344 patients who had cardiac arrest were successfully resuscitated and they were then shortly after interviewed about their experience of being near to death. The study found that of the 344 patients, 62 patients or 18 percent reported having a near-death experience. This prospective study gives strong evidence that near-death experiences are not just stories that people make up, but that something does indeed happen to people who come close to death. Still, many experts remain skeptical. One attempt to explain the near-death phenomenon is that the experience is simply due to hallucinations brought on by the loss of oxygen to the brain, which in medical term is called "anoxia." However, this explanation is a bit problematic because as we all know people who collapse or faint usually have total blackout or are at least very confused about what happened to them. But the near-death experiencer has a clear consciousness of the event, remembering the episode acutely for many years. So, the big question for the skeptics is; how can people have clear consciousness in a state of cardiac arrest with no brain activity (flat EEG)? Clearly these cases should not be called near death experiences but life after death experiences because people with cardiac arrest are clearly dead with no breathing or heart beat. The best documented instance of this paradox is the case of Pam Reynolds. In 1991, Reynolds was diagnosed with a brain tumor and had to undergo very complex surgery called "hypothermic cardiac arrest." This is a procedure where the body temperature is lowered, the heartbeat and breathing stopped, the blood is drained from the body, and the brain waves are totally flat.

Titanic: The Men that Built Her -  Documentary Films
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Titanic: The Men that Built Her - Documentary Films The Titanic is the most legendary ship in history because of the scale of project, it was a reflection of the injustices of 20th century and its tragic fate. Titanic is famous because of its biggest maritime disaster in history. It is a source of fascination for history enthusiasts and generations to come. Science has uncovered some of its mysteries when its wreck was discovered in 1985. A major British shipping company, White Star Line decided in early 20th century that it would build the biggest and prestigious passenger ship of the world - RMS Titanic. Its construction began at the Harland and Wolf naval construction site in 1909 and Thomas Andrews was in charge of the design. The Titanic was an enormous and the biggest ship ever built at that time. It came towards the end of the steam engine era. Its length was over 880 feet and weighed over 46000 tons. It had a passenger space of 3547 people. The ship dazzled others because of its luxury and sheer size. The engineers of Titanic took pride in building a mighty ship that would take passengers across the Atlantic with style. Life on board Titanic White Star Line had designed the most luxurious liner to accommodate wealthy first class passengers. The facilities were very vast including a top quality restaurant, sports center and a swimming pool. The second class passengers had common conditions for travelling and the third class passengers simply boarded to reach the other side. Inaugural Journey and Sinking The ill fated Titanic met its tragic ending during its first and only journey. It started on 10 April 1912 from Southampton and was to end at the New York. The ship was carrying 2228 people from all walks of life, social background and nationalities. An experienced British captain, Edward John Smith was in charge of the ship. Titanic's inaugural voyage drew a host of English and American celebrities and businessmen. Titanic sank on the night of 14 April 1912 four days after it sailed when it struck an iceberg and its floating parts gradually filled with water until it started sinking. Titanic took almost three hours for Titanic to become completely submerged. The lack of preparation and poor decisions resulted in deaths of 1522 out of the 2228 people present on board. The biggest cause of the tragedy was the lack of lifeboats with the priority for first class passengers during evacuation. White Star Line had amazingly not equipped the ship with more than 16 lifeboats which could only carry 1178 passengers. They were also underused and only rescued about 700 passengers while the rest died in the freezing waters.

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial 'outside agitator' idea." - Martin Luther King, Jr. I believe that it is appropriate for the United States to lecture China about their deplorable human rights record. However, the reverse is also true; China, or any other nation, has every right and moral obligation to press the U.S. on its own human rights violations. While we are all somewhat familiar with glaring recent abuses such as Abu Ghraib, the world-wide network of "black box" CIA prisons where illegally held detainees are tortured and sometimes murdered, and the gulag at Guantanamo Bay, not much attention is paid to political prisoners in the United States. Here are a few examples of the more famous political prisoners in the United States and suggestions on whom to contact to urge their release. Today would be a good day to follow the lead of Martin Luther King, Jr. and agitate for justice. Bradley Manning Bradley Manning is the Army private accused of providing Wikileaks with U.S. government documents. He has been held in solitary confinement since July, 2010. The conditions of Manning's detention are appalling: He is in held in a 6 foot by 12 foot cell for 23 hours a day where is not allowed to exercise. His glasses are taken from him except for brief periods when he is allowed to read, and at night he is stripped to his boxer shorts. His mental health is said to have deteriorated. The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture has submitted a formal inquiry to the U.S. State Department about Manning's treatment. Former Reagan Administration Paul Roberts has said Manning is, "wrongfully imprisoned for meeting his military responsibility." Australian journalist John Pilger calls Manning, "the world's pre-eminent prisoner of conscience." For more information, visit The Bradley Manning Support Network. The link appears at the end of this article. Leonard Peltier American Indian Movement activist Leonard Peltier has been known world-wide as a U.S. political prisoner since his confinement in 1977 for allegedly killing two FBI agents during a shootout at the Pine Ridge Reservation. Despite strong evidence of his innocence and a trial widely viewed as bogus, no president has ever dared to cross the FBI to pardon Peltier and release him from his two consecutive life sentences. Mumia Abu-Jamal Mumia Abu-Jamal is an internationally respected political activist and broadcast journalist who was sentenced to death for killing a U.S. police officer in 1981. Abu-Jamal remains on death row despite evidence of his innocence that has convinced observers around the world and despite the confession of another man who claims to have killed the officer. About 25 city governments, including Paris, Copenhagen, Palermo and Montreal have made Abu-Jamal an honorary citizen, and he has been honored with numerous awards, honorary degrees, and even has a street in Paris named after him. Abu-Jamal is also the subjects of several movies. Through legal battle over the decades, Abu-Jamal's execution has been delayed but the sentence still stands. The Cuban Five The Cuban Five are five Cuban intelligence officers - Gerardo Hernndez, Ramn Labaino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzlez and Ren Gonzlez - who came to Miami, Florida to monitor anti-Cuban terrorist groups. There is a long history of terrorist attacks from persons and organizations based in Miami, including the bombing of a Cuban civilian airliner. Instead of arresting the alleged terrorists, the Cuban agents were arrested, held in solitary confinement for nearly a year and a half, and are now serving sentences of up to two consecutive life terms. Eight Nobel Peace laureates have written to demand the release of the Five. Amnesty International has criticized their treatment as a violation of human rights, and 110 members of the British Parliament signed a letter to the U.S. in support of the Cuban Five. These are a few of the higher profile political imprisonment cases in the United States.

Top Documentary Films: The Medical Marijuana Revolution
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: The Medical Marijuana Revolution Marijuana is also known as pot, grass and weed but its formal name is actually cannabis. It comes from the leaves and flowers of the plant Cannabis sativa. It is considered an illegal substance in the US and many countries and possession of marijuana is a crime punishable by law. The FDA classifies marijuana as Schedule I, substances which have a very high potential for abuse and have no proven medical use. Over the years several studies claim that some substances found in marijuana have medicinal use, especially in terminal diseases such as cancer and AIDS. This started a fierce debate over the pros and cons of the use of medical marijuana. To settle this debate, the Institute of Medicine published the famous 1999 IOM report entitled Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base. The report was comprehensive but did not give a clear cut yes or no answer. The opposite camps of the medical marijuana issue often cite part of the report in their advocacy arguments. However, although the report clarified many things, it never settled the controversy once and for all. Let's look at the issues that support why medical marijuana should be legalized. (1) Marijuana is a naturally occurring herb and has been used from South America to Asia as an herbal medicine for millennia. In this day and age when the all natural and organic are important health buzzwords, a naturally occurring herb like marijuana might be more appealing to and safer for consumers than synthetic drugs. (2) Marijuana has strong therapeutic potential. Several studies, as summarized in the IOM report, have observed that cannabis can be used as analgesic, e.g. to treat pain. A few studies showed that THC, a marijuana component is effective in treating chronic pain experienced by cancer patients. However, studies on acute pain such as those experienced during surgery and trauma have inconclusive reports. A few studies, also summarized in the IOM report, have demonstrated that some marijuana components have antiemetic properties and are, therefore, effective against nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of cancer chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Some researchers are convinced that cannabis has some therapeutic potential against neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Specific compounds extracted from marijuana have strong therapeutic potential. Cannobidiol (CBD), a major component of marijuana, has been shown to have antipsychotic, anticancer and antioxidant properties. Other cannabinoids have been shown to prevent high intraocular pressure (IOP), a major risk factor for glaucoma. Drugs that contain active ingredients present in marijuana but have been synthetically produced in the laboratory have been approved by the US FDA. One example is Marinol, an antiemetic agent indicated for nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. Its active ingredient is dronabinol, a synthetic delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
