La Haine

Source: Critics often use pop culture to decode 'weak signals' that predicted September 11 and other hyperviolent events. Slate's Matt Feeney examines Mathieu Kassovitz's film La Haine (1995) and what it can tell us about the immigrant ghettoes that have shaped the week-long riots in France. Feeney suggests that Kassovitz "overindulges himself as a screenwriter", that La Haine has limited value as prophecy, and that its verite strengths fail to detail the sociopolitical conditions that lead to escalating conflict.

Wal-Mart Movie Opens With Fracas In Manhattan

Posted: Thu, 03 Nov 2005 15:36:16 +0000

Source: • The New York Times reports that Robert Greenwald confronted Wal-Mart consultant John Marino, at the New York launch of Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price on 1 November 2005. The Guardian notes that Greenwald's film distributor is contemplating suing Wal-Mart for piracy.

• 200,000 Missouri employees have filed a class action suit against Wal-Mart over its unauthorized removal of rest and meal breaks from pay cycles. In retaliation at the negative publicity, BusinessWeek reveals that Wal-Mart is sponsoring an academic conference to examine the conglomerate's economic impact on businesses and communities.

• Salon's Andrew O'Hehir surmises: "We didn't know about any of this alleged bad stuff, Wal-Mart insists -- and that happy little yellow Low-Pricey Man throws his gloved hands in the air and does his best impression of a frown. But as you watch Greenwald's movie that response becomes more and more incredible; what the chain's execs presumably didn't know about their global quest to drive costs, wages and prices ever downward dwarfs the already galactic scale of what George W. Bush and Dick Cheney presumably didn't know about Iraq."

• CBS5 has broadcast an excellent interview with Greenwald.

Welcome
to Changemaker: Healing Heart, Mind and Soul blog.
In advocating the self-discovery model for understanding ourselves and others, Changemaker believes that the Changemaker Test can be used to teach personality indicators to groups of persons interested in learning about themselves.

Healing begins when, in spite of all the negative self-talk going on inside a person, that person feels someone caring and loving them for no apparent reason. This unconditional love comes in spite of attempts to search for a motive.

The Changemaker Test PackageEveryone has many pers...

Posted: 2005-09-29T17:53:09Z

Source: The Changemaker Test Package
Everyone has many personality labels yet most of us resist being labeled. I'm sure that we each have hundreds of labels because each person is very complex. The main way that we learn our labels is from others. We generally resist these learnings as it feels that the labels have a negative connotation.

Yet most labels can be positive and negative at the same time. While counseling others for several years, I realized that we each love to learn about ourselves if the information comes from a place of love and acceptance. But we pretend that we don't want to know. It is the same maneuver we use to view a group picture that includes us. While oohing and aahing over all the other group members, we are secretly gazing at ourselves.

I also knew that many of the labels used by counselors are unknown to most persons who never attend therapy. So I used these groups of labels and developed a short test that anyone can take because I give you the "answers". I will also include a bibliography of books for reference for each of the parts of the test. Therefore anyone can read and discover what their own personal labels mean.

The Changemaker Test Complete Package, a 84 page ebook, includes the test, test answers, a page explanation for each of all the labels, two newer personality measures, a bibliography for the test answers, and recommended websites for included subjects.

 

It is estimated by the age of 21, each of us has acquired 20,000 hours of negative self-talk. Learn to listen to the voices in your head. Whatever you are thinking is what you are feeling.

 

By learning our personality traits, we can determine the positives about ourselves and change the negative thoughts to positive ones.

          

This test is meant to be the starting point for self-discovery. With the complete test, answers and explanations, anyone can test their friends and family. Also anyone who has compassion for others, can use these materials to begin discussion groups of persons interested in self-discovery.

 

Inside the extensive 84 pages of this ebook you will be able to give the test to anyone and help them to learn 10 personality traits unique to that person. With the complete book, you’ll be able to create and run 10-12 persons self-discovery groups.

 

The Changemaker Test Package includes:

§         The test of 25 personality traits include the categories of NLP (neurolinguistic programming), birth order, family roles, emotional energy, and MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator)

§         From the 25 traits, each person will learn 10 of his/her personality traits

§         Each of the 25 traits is explained in an individual description

§         Included is the Big Five Test and enneagram information

§         A bibliography for all the personality traits has been added

§         Also the ebook has recommended websites for the included personality schools

 

By learning our personality traits, we can determine the positives about ourselves to enrich our self-image. The Changemaker Test is meant to be the starting point for self-discovery. With this ebook, anyone with compassion and interest in others can use these materials to begin discussion groups.

The company known for its private security work guarding senior US diplomats in Iraq beat the federal government and most aid organizations to the scene in another devastated Gulf. About 150 heavily armed Blackwater troops dressed in full battle gear spread out into the chaos of New Orleans. Officially, the company boasted of its forces "join[ing] the hurricane relief effort." But its men on the ground told a different story.

'Some patrolled the streets in SUVs with tinted windows and the Blackwater logo splashed on the back; others sped around the French Quarter in an unmarked car with no license plates. They congregated on the corner of St. James and Bourbon in front of a bar called 711, where Blackwater was establishing a makeshift headquarters. From the balcony above the bar, several Blackwater guys cleared out what had apparently been someone's apartment. They threw mattresses, clothes, shoes and other household items from the balcony to the street below. They draped an American flag from the balcony's railing. More than a dozen troops from the 82nd Airborne Division stood in formation on the street watching the action.' (Nation article).

How To Be Inhuman

Source: 'Biotechnology holds the promise of some day allowing people to enhance themselves and their children using pharmaceuticals or genetic interventions. This prospect is welcomed by some, but causes a great deal of anxiety in many people: Are there enhancements whose benefits would come at the price of our humanity?

'The President's Council on Bioethics worries that people who choose to use biotech enhancements would somehow lose themselves: The Council's report "Beyond Therapy" warns "we risk 'turning into someone else,' confounding the identity we have acquired through natural gift cultivated by genuinely lived experiences, alone and with others." Liberal bioethicist George Annas from Boston University is pushing for a global treaty that would ban all inheritable modifications to any person's genetic makeup. He favors such a treaty because he believes that "species-altering genetic engineering [is] a potential weapon of mass destruction, and [that] makes the unaccountable genetic engineer a potential bioterrorist."'

Source: 'In a recent New York Observer column, Richard Brookhiser argues that if George W. Bush "is now a lame duck, it is by his own hand." Bush's response to Hurricane Katrina, says Brookhiser, was doubly disastrous. First (and most important), people died and anarchy was loosed because Bush acted slowly and had surrounded himself with incompetents. Second, as in the immediate aftershock of the 9/11 attacks, Bush failed to provide the proper symbolic rhetoric that is part of the job: "If you can't speak, act," Brookhiser wrote. "Gesture is also a form of speech. Go to your desk. The news will show the chopper landing on the White House lawn. Look serious."

'Given that he's a Republican stalwart, a longtime senior editor at National Review, and the Observer's token conservative columnist, you can forgive Brookhiser for fretting over the electoral ramifications from Bush's metamorphosis into a lame duck.' (Reason article).

Source: Staying Sober

The information on this post is reprinted from a website that I can no longer access. If anyone knows the author's name or new website, please email me. I believe wholeheartedly in what he is saying.

 

“You see, I believe we can get past this thing called alcoholism and addiction. We can get past it by taking advantage of every opportunity for abstaining that we encounter. For most people that includes a period of time in a 12 Step Program. If it's not AA right off the bat, almost ALL Treatment Centers refer clients to the 12 step programs anyway. So if you haven't done it already, go ahead, bite the bullet and put a little time into AA.

 

One thing you'll learn there is what Not to do if you really want to stop drinking. You will have many, many opportunities to study people as they stumble through the obstacles they place before themselves on the way to sober living. There are tricks to not falling prey to self-destruction while learning to not drink, and it's less painful to learn those lessons second hand. I learned a lot of them there.

 

The bottom line for everyone is that if you really want to get sober, you will get sober. It doesn't matter what your gig is, it could be the fishing cure, church, a hot new babe, 12 steps, or plain hard assed self-preservation. When the nickel drops and you know what you need to do to get the job done,,,, go ahead and do it. And do it like you never did anything before, because getting sober takes all the passion you'll ever have. Staying sober, it gets a lot easier after the first 10 or 15 years.”

A Triumph For Decency At The UN

'Almost unnoticed in the coverage of the Summit was the most significant change in international law since the U.N. Charter itself -- the "Responsibility to Protect" declaration. Its survival is in some way a personal triumph for U.N.

A Failed State

Source: 'MARTINSBURG, WV -- “America’s proverbial drawers are down,” the preacher exclaimed. “Its backside is showing.” His speech was deliberate, grave for such a slapstick image, a joke that wasn’t meant for laughter, but within the packed sanctuary of Destiny Baptist Church on a working-class street in this average small town people laughed some anyway, as the preacher knew they would, for the same reason they pray: to lighten the load.

'This was the Sunday after the storm, September 4. Six days of madness, of human creation either undone or finally exposed amid the fetid high water of New Orleans, and on the seventh day, restlessness. Great swathes of America found two sources of public communion, the church and CNN, and two rescuers in which to place their faith, Jesus and the cavalry. Armed force having come late or brutally to Katrina’s wretched exiles, and in all events helpless as salvation from a trouble so profound that neither poverty nor racism adequately names it, people looked to Jesus. Jesus must be sick of us.' (MotherJones article).

My rating: 5 out of 5

I haven't wrote a review in a minute. "I hate meeces to pieces." - Mr. Jinx. Remember that? Probably not. Then either contact your local cable/dish monkey and get the monkeying for the Boomerang channel. Or Google it up. That's the type of mindframe you'll need for this cd. You're gonna need to be a fan of cartoons and comics anyway if you're gonna tolerate anybody named Danger Mouse and MF Doom. As Mallz says, "MF Doom" is an acquired taste. But it's easily to see why Doom is LARGE! The Masked one delivers all of the flows on the cd with a couple cameos from Ghostface, Cee-Lo and Talib Kweli and a slew of interaction with the Adult Swim characters like Brak (Brak Show) and Meatwad (Aqua Teen Hunger Force) who both try their hand at spittin'. My favorite, Carl and The Moonanites (Aqua Teen Hunger Force), Space Ghost (Space Ghost Coast-To-Coast), Sealab's Dr. Quinn, Stormy, Black Debbie, and a brewing stalker in Aqua Teen Hunger Force's Master Shake. This form of interaction with fictional characters, VERY CREATIVE. Soon it will be bastardized and copied. Doom is ill. Fans of Doom will love this. Fans of Adult Swim SHOULD love this. The retail copy should appear in October. Adult Swim is known for promoting one of their projects 6 months in advance. But a simple search and you can find the promo copy on the net. Schooly D and MC Chris fanatics will pick this up. A song-by-song breakdown isn't needed in this joint. It's themed. So by the first few tracks if you're not feeling it, then you're not gonna like it at all. But I love it. I've listened to it 7 times prior to writing this review. My favorite tracks? "Benzi Box", "Crosshairs", and "Basket Case". Danger Mouse production and MF DOOM spittin'...dope. BTW, join the fan collective on the Adult Swim website, I'm on there somewhere.

Posted: 2005-07-30T23:33:26Z

Source: The Common Thread of Codependency
We are probably all codependent at one time or another. It is only harmful when it is the basic pattern of  relationship choice. It happens sometimes that another person gets more of our attention than we are giving to ourselves. But the codependent uses concern to gain power over others in the classic position of "top-dog". Codependency is a pattern of loving someone excessively in order to control the other person.

Healthy relationships have shared power. The main reason for conflict in relationships is power and how it is shared. Shared power in relationships is the only ingredient in relationships that determines how healthy the union is. Unfortunately, when a person decides to give up his/her addiction, if he/she is part of a couple, the other partner will also have to change. Without the addiction to feed the addict's sense of reality, the recovering person is awakened to the reality of the power balance in the relationship.

 The addict is addicted to the idea that he/she is "controlling" the addiction ("I can quit any time I want to."). The codependent is addicted to the belief that he/she is "controlling" the addict (by telling them when to drink/use--how to drink/use--how much to drink/use, etc.). The reality is that the addiction is in control and is controlling both partners.

War Of The Words

Posted: Fri, 29 Jul 2005 09:31:00 +0000

Source: 'When the going gets tough, adjust the rhetoric. Thanks to the New York Times we now know that the Bush administration is changing the semantics of its "global war on terror", so that it will now be referred to as a "struggle." The new label implies that "the long-term struggle is as much an ideological battle as a military mission." Recently, for example, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and the top brass have been referring to a "global struggle against violent extremism" in their speeches.

'But is it wise to describe a monumental campaign, particularly one relying heavily on the sturdy morale of America's citizenry, as "a struggle"? After all, if the term evokes persistent effort, it also suggests proceeding with difficulty. Moreover, it comes with a whiff of left-wing mildew: Karl Marx used the word in one of the most famous phrases in The Communist Manifesto: "The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggle." Digging into the archives one might find other renditions, as in the name of a minor Palestinian group, the Popular Struggle Front; or Lebanon's long-forgotten National Struggle Front; or the publication Unity and Struggle of the Colombian Communist Party, and so on. Among the comrades, it seems, one incessantly struggles.' (Reason article).

Sex And The Supremes

Posted: Fri, 29 Jul 2005 09:31:00 +0000

Source: 'There have been occasions in the history of the Supreme Court when simple professional excellence, more than any grittier consideration, was enough to propel a lawyer onto the bench. Ethnic and geographic balance, as well as a measure of ideological suitability, played some part in, say, Herbert Hoover's selection of Benjamin Nathan Cardozo, in 1932, or Dwight D. Eisenhower's choice of John M. Harlan, in 1955, but it was possible, too, to see these nominations as ratifications of a national consensus about lawyerly credentials. George W. Bush's designation of John G. Roberts, Jr., can be seen as following this tradition. Though he is only fifty years old, Roberts, who graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, has been a clerk to two eminent judges (the late Henry J.

I hear the wind blowing across the desert and I see the moons of a winter night
rising tike great ships in the void. To them I make my vow: I will be resolute
and make an art of government; I will balance my inherited past and become a
perfect storehouse of my relic memories. And I will be known for kindliness
more than for knowledge. My face will shine down the corridors of time for as
long as humans exist.

A Document Request For Senator Schumer

Posted: Fri, 29 Jul 2005 09:31:00 +0000

Source: 'Senator Charles Schumer of New York has led the charge for Senate Democrats over the last several days in demanding the release of thousands of pages of highly confidential internal executive branch memos written by Supreme Court nominee John Roberts when he worked as a deputy solicitor general in the first Bush administration. These document requests are unprecedented in their nature and scope and call on the Bush administration to waive executive privilege and attorney-client privilege to a degree that no other administration has ever previously been asked to do.

'Republicans are skeptical of the Schumer request and suspect the senator is on a fishing expedition to try to dig up something with which to oppose the hitherto unassailable Roberts nomination. Republicans have solid reason to suspect Schumer of this, since he was overheard saying on a cell phone that he was going to go to war against whoever the president nominated before Roberts was even nominated.'

Good Copy, Bad Copy

Source: 'Nine Inch Nails have just released a new single; In addition to the usual formats, "The Hand That Feeds" was available for free download in Garageband format. Trent Reznor explained, "For quite some time I've been interested in the idea of allowing you the ability to tinker around with my tracks – to create remixes, experiment, embellish or destroy what's there" (MacMinute 15 April 2005). Reznor invites creativity facilitated by copying and transformation. "Copy" carries connotations of unsavoury notions such as piracy, stealing, fake, and plagiarism. Conversely, in some circumstances copying is acceptable, some situations demand copying. This article examines the treatment of "copy" at the intersection of musical creativity and copyright law with regard to cover versions and sampling.' (M/C Journal article).
