Another of those rare, global A-ha moments might be just over the horizon … one when we the people will suddenly wake up to our own power, learn to harness the raw creativity and leaderless horizontalism and send a powerful chilling message to criminal CEOs like Lloyd Blankfein & Hugh Grant– that from now on they will pay a heavy price for any betrayal of the public trust.
There’s a whole list of corporate criminals that warrant our heat. We call these the Dirty Dozen. One of the world’s worst offenders is the GMO crazed Monsanto Corporation and its CEO, Hugh Grant, who poison our food supply and ravage the land with frankenfood.
On Saturday, join us in cities across the world as we focus our collective energy against Monsanto, a target all of humanity can agree deserves to be taken out.
My eye caught a dark form lying on the river bottom. It took me a few moments to comprehend what I had stumbled upon. Lying peacefully in the shallow waters of the river, only a few meters from shore, was a full-grown cougar. The contrast between the serenity of the scene I was witnessing and what must have played out here in the cougar’s final moments made me shiver. It was the first shiver of many, as I stripped down and waded out into the icy water to get this shot. x
Do you understand what we are losing?

They are not longer commanded by the stale visions of politicians. They have no nationality any more and are beyond ideology.
'We're small, but we don't feel weak. As we've moved around the country we've been helped in many ways by many, many people'.
Fear does not slither upon them like a silent octopus.
'It's not a trick, you know, we don't exactly outwit the FBI so if people didn't support there being an underground, we wouldn't be here 5 years later.'
They’re waiting for the snow.

Malala Yousafzai (Pashto: ملاله یوسفزۍ; Urdu: ملالہ یوسف زئی Malālah Yūsafzay, born 12 July 1997) is a Pakistani school pupil and education activist from the town of Mingora in the Swat District of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and the youngest nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize in history. She is known for her education and women’s rights activism in the Swat Valley, where the Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. In early 2009, at the age of 11/12, Yousafzai wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls
On 9 October 2012, Yousafzai was shot in the head and neck in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus. In the days immediately following the attack, she remained unconscious and in critical condition, but later her condition improved enough for her to be sent to a hospital in the United Kingdom for intensive rehabilitation.
She’s fifteen. Incredible.
