I thought I would not be able to send you any more compilations for a while but it seems I'm able to manage to compile at least one per week, aside from the Focus group material I also contribute to prepare from time to time. There are some pretty interesting - and unsettling - things going on as you will see.
Take care my dear friends from around the world and pass it on!

Subject: Re: Miscellaneous Subjects #21: Unreported Police Brutality during the recent GOP Convention in Philadelphia + Global Village News #4
Date: Wed, 16 Aug 2000
Dear Jean, dear brothers and sisters,
I just want to tell you how sad i feel at reading the Philadelphia news.
One of the questions to ask the US government would be: so, are we in a
dictatorship or what? It looks just like it. Well, it might as well be
clear like that, so we know where we stand, and what we have to do about it.
Fortunately, Jean included news from the Global Village News and from
Dynamic 5 in Switzerland. Waoh, my dream to be governed by spiritual
persons is seing its first realisation. It sure soothens the pain from the
Philadelphia events. Thank you Jean for your thoughtfulness, you do know
how to balance your newsletters so we always have a positive feeling after
reading them, instead of collapsing in despair.
Loving thoughts to all of you.

I have been a subscriber for some time and every morning at five o'clock I am checking my inbox.
This ritual has begun to transform my world view to a brighter intensity. For decades I have been consciously aware of the philosophy that flows through your e-mails. It has, however, been easier to 'hook in' to them as a dominant belief system while I was in situations earlier in this life. As a member of the Ken Keyes Center in Oregon I was surrounded by members who were there to do 'inner work'. Another situation was an intentional community in Vermont where the teachings of Seth were the focus.
Now I'm living in a wonderful 'suburban' village environment in rural Australia. A family, a house and I suppose everything a fortunate individual could want....except that fundamental need to share one's opinion on 'The Big Picture'....The times I've raised the topic with local blokes and sheilas has almost always gone with a yawn.
So when the family manifested a computer the Internet became a virtual world to explore. Archangels and lightworkers, wisdom of the elders and global visionaries. A world that believes in love. But also a world that is struggling with the urgent need for caring, and healing.
There is so much to be done, and the first job is that 'inner work'. What makes this job easier is the daily spiritual breakfast in my inbox from lightworkers like you. Could you help me in compiling a list of lightworkers by sending me the names and e-mail addresses of everyone you know of that is performing the services like yourself? If a list already exists I'd be most grateful to acquire it.
Thanking you for every email you send to everyone, Leo (firstname.lastname@example.org)
MY REPLY WAS:
Thanks Leo for your kind comments. Unfortunately I don't have such a list. But if you make note of the people included in my compilations you will find some other such networkers - although there aren't that many.
Chernobyl In Slow Motion' Seen In Barents Sea
MOSCOW (Agence France Presse) - Part of the Barents Sea, where last-ditch rescue attempts are being made to save the crew of the Russian submarine Kursk, is at risk of becoming a "Chernobyl in slow motion," according to the Norwegian environmental protection group Bellona.
The Kursk, believed to have been damaged by an explosion Saturday, is one of several dozen nuclear-powered submarines -- many of them now abandoned -- based on the Kola peninsula where the Russian Northern Fleet is headquartered.
According to the Bellona Foundation, more than 18 percent of the world's total stock of nuclear reactors is located near fleet's main area of operations and most of them are in a poor state of maintenance. The Russian Northern Fleet operates 67 nuclear submarines with a total of 115 reactors between them, plus two nuclear-powered battle cruisers which each have two reactors.
In addition it has 52 submarines with a total of 101 reactors which have been retired from service but still contain their nuclear fuel, Bellona said. There are a total of 240 nuclear reactors in the Kola peninsula/Severodvinsk region on the White Sea, the greatest concentration of reactors in the world. Of these, 236 are naval reactors on board submarines and ships, and four are land-based reactors at the Kola nuclear power station.
In a report published in 1996, Bellona said the Northern Fleet -- founded in 1899 -- has a total of 270 nuclear reactors in service or in storage. Many of these are located at or near Russia's seven naval bases on the Kola peninsula, which borders the Barents Sea.
Waste from an additional 90 reactor cores are stored under what Bellona describes as unsafe conditions at Zapadnaya Litsa. Eighteen reactor cores are stored under similar conditions on storage ships and barges. Overall, according to Bellona, more than 30,000 cubic meters of solid nuclear waste and 7,000 cubic meters of liquid nuclear waste is stockpiled in the region.
The report was co-written by a former Russian naval captain, Alexander Nikitin, who was subsequently charged with espionage by the Russian military authorities but acquitted.
Bellona warned that without international cooperation and financing to deal with the nuclear danger in the region, a situation could arise that it described as "Chernobyl in slow motion" -- a reference to the 1986 nuclear disaster in Ukraine.
The two nuclear reactors aboard the Kursk have been shut down and "made safe," according to Russian naval authorities. However a leading Russian ecologist said Wednesday that the reactors still posed a threat. Alexei Yablokov, former head of the advisory Security Council's environmental commission, said the breakdown in the submarine's power supplies meant that the reactors could not be cooled down, and that "there could be problems, even an explosion."
These 2 newsclips could be called "The Greening of the Democrats". I like what I heard from Al Gore in his acceptance speech!
August 18, 2000
News summaries from GRIST MAGAZINE
Al Gore made a few obligatory mentions of environmental issues during
his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National
Convention in Los Angeles last night, but concentrated most of his
attention on other core Democratic issues. "On the issue of the
environment, I've never given up, I've never backed down, and I never
will," he pledged. "And I say it again tonight: We must reverse the
silent, rising tide of global warming, and we can." Meanwhile,
behind the scenes, the Democratic National Committee has brought on
board Katie McGinty, former chair of the White House Council on
Environmental Quality, to help combat the threat posed by Green Party
candidate Ralph Nader to the Gore campaign. All this and more in
Grist's Muckraker column, reporting straight from the convention hall.

Al Gore may not have spent much time on the environment in his speech
last night, but organizers of the Democratic National Convention said
they did their darndest to make the convention the most green and
waste-free one yet. Last night's festivities ended, for example,
with 700 pounds of 100-percent recyclable confetti being showered on
Gore and his supporters (well, at least they got the third R right).
Recycling programs were in place for soda cans, cardboard, lights,
motor oil, batteries, and newspaper and signs. Delegates were
transported to the convention in electric buses owned by Los Angeles,
and the convention staff had on hand 175 other alternative-fuel
vehicles. The Democrats also took advantage of 12 solar panels
already installed at the convention center, providing 330
kilowatt-hours of energy a day.

Subject: Some good news for a change!
A City Managed By Common Sense
Residents of Curitiba, Brazil, think they live in the best city in the world, and a lot of outsiders agree. Curibita has 17 new parks, 90 miles of bike paths, trees everywhere, and traffic and garbage systems that officials from other cities come to study. Curibita's mayor for twelve years, Jaime Lerner, has a 92 per cent approval rating.
There is nothing special about Curitiba's history, location or population. Like all Latin American cities, the city has grown enormously - from 150,000 people in the 1950s to 1.6 million now. It has its share of squatter settlements, where fewer than half the people are literate. Curibita's secret, insofar that it has one, seems to be simple willingness from the people at the top to get their kicks from solving problems.
Those people at the top started in the 1960s with a group of young architects who were not impressed by the urban fashion of borrowing money for big highways, massive buildings, shopping malls and other showy projects. They were thinking about the environment and about human needs. They approached Curibita's mayor, pointed to the rapid growth of the city and made a case for better planning.
The mayor sponsored a contest for a Curibita master plan. He circulated the best entries, debated them with the citizens, and then turned the people's comments over to the upstart architects, asking them to develop and implement a final plan. Jaime Lerner was one of these architects. In 1971 he was appointed mayor by the then military government of Brazil.
Given Brazil's economic situation, Lerner had to think small, cheap and participatory - which was how he was thinking anyway. He provided 1.5 million tree seedlings to neighborhoods for them to plant and care for. ('There is little in the architecture of a city that is more beautifully designed than a tree,' says Lerner.) He solved the city's flood problems by diverting water from lowlands into lakes in the new parks. He hired teenagers to keep the parks clean.
He met resistance from shopkeepers when he proposed turning the downtown shopping district into a pedestrian zone, so he suggested a thirty-day trial. The zone was so popular that shopkeepers on the other streets asked to be included. Now one pedestrian street, the Rua das Flores, is lined with gardens tended by street children.
Orphaned or abandoned street children are a problem all over Brazil. Lerner got each industry, shop and institution to 'adopt' a few children, providing them with a daily meal and a small wage in exchange for simple maintenance gardening or office chores. Another Lerner innovation was to organize the street vendors into a mobile, open-air fair that circulates through the city's neighborhoods.
Concentric circles of local bus lines connect to five lines that radiate from the center of the city in a spider web pattern. On the radial lines, triple-compartment buses in their own traffic lanes carry three hundred passengers each. They go as fast as subway cars, but at one-eightieth the construction cost.
The buses stop at Plexiglas tube stations designed by Lerner. Passengers pay their fares, enter through one end of the tube, and exit from the other end. This system eliminates paying on board, and allows faster loading and unloading, less idling and air pollution, and a sheltered place for waiting - though the system is so efficient that there isn't much waiting. There isn't much littering either. There isn't time.
Curitiba's citizens separate their trash into just two categories, organic and inorganic, for pick-up by two kinds of trucks. Poor families in squatter settlements that are unreachable by trucks bring their trash bags to neighborhood centers, where they can exchange them for bus tickets or for eggs, milk, oranges and potatoes, all bought from outlying farms.
The trash goes to a plant (itself built of recycled materials) that employs people to separate bottles from cans from plastic. The workers are handicapped people, recent immigrants, and alcoholics. Recovered materials are sold to local industries. Styrofoam is shredded to stuff quilt for the poor. The recycling program costs no more than the old landfill, but the city is cleaner, there are more jobs, farmers are supported and the poor get food and transportation. Curitiba recycles two-thirds of it garbage - one of the highest rates of any city, north or south.
Curitiba builders get a tax break if their projects include green areas. Jaime Lerner says, 'There is no endeavor more noble than the attempt to achieve a collective dream. When a city accepts as a mandate its quality of life; when it respects the people who live in it; when it respects the environment; when it prepares for future generations, the people share the responsibility for that mandate, and this shared cause is the only way to achieve that collective dream.'

Subject: ACTION ALERT - Caiapos of Brazil
Hi, this is Greg O'Neill <firstname.lastname@example.org>, an FPCN
(Friends of People Close to Nature) member. Please
look over the attached action alert, and inform your
network of activists, and lightworkers, to take action
to stop the slaughter of Brazilian rainforest natives
by paramilitary & military forces in Brazil happening
now. By widely publicizing this terrible action taking
place, we hope to prevent more rainforest tribes from
suffering a similar fate, and perhaps being in time to
save the Caipos tribe, or a remnant population.
Thank you for your compassion, and action.

A telephone call a few minutes ago brought this
request for your assistance. There is a risk that yet another
massacre of Indian relations is about to break loose in northern
Brazil. I ask that you contact the closest Brazilian
embassy/consulate/trade office to you & let them know that you
are watching, that the whole world is watching.
The Caiapos Nation numbered an estimated 20,000-30,000 just 25
years ago. Today there are about 3,000-5,000 survivors
struggling to maintain their livelihood in this small corner of
the vanishing Amazonian rain forest. Most of the deaths have
been due to attacks by paramilitary gangs of heavily armed men,
many suspected to be army & police units of the State of
Para. The Caiapos have been recognized as proprietors of their
ancestral lands by Brazilian courts, but have not been able to
force the state government to abide by either the decrees of the
courts or the directives of the federal government to
"demarcate' the Caiapos ancestral territory.
In Brazil, demarcation is the setting aside of anywhere from
5%-10% of an Indian Nation's ancestral territory as being
exclusively for their use/control/management. The demarcation,
however, requires the agreement of state governments, so over
80% of the few surviving Indian Nations in Brazil are still
awaiting confirmation of their rights even though the courts &
federal government have declared the land in question to be
Indian land in every legal sense. (This "state govt veto power
over Indian rights" sounds a lot like the model Presidential
hopeful George Bush Jr. intends to apply in the USA.)
Of the (conservatively) estimated 15,000,000-20,000,000 Indians
in Brazil in 1800, less than 200,000 remain alive today. CONAI,
the Brazilian government's equivalent of a Dept of Indian
Affairs, with it's staff of six (6) people, has estimated that
over 100,000 Indian men, women & children have been butchered by
"paramilitary units" since 1960. Because they "stand in the way
of development" (ie, their legal rights impede the plundering of
the Amazonian basin by multinational corporations currently
stripping the land bare of all its natural resources). The
Indians simply do not want to be "progressed."
In this current situation, the state government (based in Belem)
is particularly hostile to any recognition of any Indian
rights. The governor of the state, (well paid by the
multinational corporations) has repeatedly declared that the
demarcation of Indian Nation territories is an "anti-democratic,
communist strategy to stop development & progress" & he has
openly unleashed the state security forces to "search & destroy"
Indian villages over the past few years, citing the Indians'
resistance to the constant raids & massacres by the paramilitary
gangs as indicative of their "terrorism."
So now we have 16 non-Indian "fishermen" who were captured by
surprise while "peacefully fishing" in the area where the Xingu
& Iriri rivers converge, just south of the town of Altimira in
the State of Para. These "peaceful fishermen" were armed with
grenades, submachine guns & automatic weapons. They were
captured as they slept (they'd been drinking heavily a few hours
before) & not a single one was harmed in any way. But now the
Governor of Para is mobilizing his "militia" & stating that they
will "destroy these uncivilized terrorists once & for all." The
Indians are demanding only that the demarcation of their lands be legally
recognized by the state government before they agree to release
their prisoners unharmed.
Please folks, take the time to make that call, send that fax to
the closest Brazilian government representative to your
location. Demand that the federal government of Brazil ensure
that this incident does not become the excuse for yet another
massacre in the ongoing genocide of the relations in Brazil.
Demand that the Governor of Para State be forced to rein in his
killing machine & agree to the demarcation of Caiapos
territory. Hundreds of lives as precious as yours, as your
children's are hanging by a very slim thread today.
(Your prayers would be of great help too.)
masi:cho for reading this & for taking *action* to save the
lives of relations.

Thursday August 17 - Los Alamos Braces for Rain
By Neil Sherman HealthSCOUT Reporter
FRIDAY, May 19 (HealthSCOUT) -- The health dangers from the Los Alamos, N.M., fire may be just beginning.
"We are very, very gravely concerned about flash flooding in the canyon," says Paul Schumann, the team leader for communications and outreach in the Environmental Research program at Los Alamos National Laboratory. "We are working with the BEAR team to protect these watersheds from this flooding potential." BEAR stands for Burn Area Emergency Rehabilitation Team, a group that will work to clean up in the fire's aftermath.
Environmental activists and Los Alamos officials are worried that the upcoming "monsoon season" will cause flash floods, flushing buried chemicals and radioactive trash into the streams and creeks that feed the Rio Grande.
Part of the border between the United States and Mexico, the river is 1,180 miles long and some of it irrigates about 453,000 acres of land.
"The fire burned 40 percent of the lab, right over the chemical explosive bunker, right up to the tritium lab facility," says Dr. Dan Kerlinsky, the president of the New Mexico Physicians for Social Responsibility in Albuquerque, N.M. It burned "through the contaminated canyon where, over the last 55 years, Los Alamos has been dumping radioactive liquid."
Kerlinsky warns that "the big problem is not the external radiation in the air; that would be like the radiation from a single X-ray. The problem is if you ingest radioactive particles." Eating or drinking such particles is an almost certain shortcut to cancer.
Schumann confirms a long history of radioactive dumping in the canyons surrounding Los Alamos. It consisted "of liquid and solids" and took place "during the Manhattan project and the years following.
"So, radioactive dumping happened in the canyons, you bet. The labs used to dump solid waste in drums, scrap metal, old tires, ash from an incinerator, the whole range of material, even municipal solid waste," Schumann says.
Lab Director John Browne said in an interview with The Albuquerque Tribune that they are taking steps to make sure the contamination stays on lab property. He further told reporter Lawrence Spohn that the lab would put up such barriers as earthen dams or ponds, where needed, to catch water runoff and settle out heavier pollutants like toxic metals.
Kerlinsky says radioactive waste like plutonium or strontium 90 is "very mobile in water." He adds that "plutonium [if breathed] would sit in your lungs, stay in and keep radiating over and over. The radiation would damage DNA, damage that could not be repaired. And radiation is a free radical, causing internal cell damage, which can lead to cancer."
The Los Alamos lab is about 35 miles northwest of Santa Fe and occupies 43 square miles of land in northern New Mexico. Owned by the U.S. Department of Energy, Los Alamos has been managed by the University of California since 1943, when the laboratory was founded as part of the Manhattan Project to create the first atomic bomb during World War II.
"This is the driest winter on record in New Mexico," Kerlinsky adds. "We get monsoons in the summer, and those heavy rains will just run off causing flash floods. What we expect with the degradation of vegetation caused by the fire is that there will be massive runoff of what's in the soil -- PCBs and mercury, plus all the radioactive waste."
According to Travis Moseley, a BEAR member, weather forecasters predict summer monsoons will come early. "It's a La Niña year and we usually get monsoons starting July 1. We're expecting them anytime now," says Moseley, a range and watershed specialist in New Mexico's Fire Information Office in Los Alamos.
"The BEAR team is an inter-agency land management team of national and state experts who have state-of-the-art knowledge of emergency rehabilitation," Moseley explains.
Moseley confirms that massive runoff is possible. "We don't have ground vegetation that would help hold the soil together and help water infiltrate. And a lot of these soils, especially in the highest intensity burn areas, have become hydrophobic. Soil that is burned forms a real thin layer that basically repels water." Massive amounts of water sliding over such a layer can cause flash flooding and soil erosion.
Moseley says the government has "worked all week" developing plans to fight the problems. "By this weekend the field data will be assessed. We will be seeding grasses to get ground cover. That is very important. And we will be contour falling of dead trees so that they lay parallel on the hills" to "interrupt the flow of water, slow it down, move it round, which will allow it to infiltrate back into the soil."
Moseley also says that water runoff will be monitored for pollutants.

NOTE FROM JEAN: Some of you may have heard those scary stories from global conspiracy buffs about the plan to gradually implant everyone with a chip so that Big Brother may always know exactly were you are and what you are doing. Well, a U.S. corporation called Applied Digital Solutions has actually created one and given it a most inocuous name - Digital Angel - and is set to unveil this new technological "wonder" in October in New York. It has some positive and enticing applications indeed, but this could also be a Troyan Horse we might all want to carefully watch...
The chip implant for humans is now a reality!...
(...) ADS announced on December 15, 1999, that it had acquired the patent rights to a miniature digital transceiver - which it has named Digital Angel -- that can be used for a variety of purposes, such as providing a tamper-proof means of identification for enhanced e-business security, locating lost or missing individuals, monitoring livestock, tracking the location of valuable property and monitoring the medical conditions of at-risk patients.
The implantable Digital Angel transceiver sends and receives data and can be continuously tracked by GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) technology. The transceiver's power supply and actuation system are unlike anything ever created. When implanted within a body, the device is powered electromechanically through the movement of muscles, and it can be activated either by the "wearer" or by the monitoring facility. A novel sensation feedback feature will even allow the wearer to control the device to some degree. The "smart" device is also small enough to be hidden inconspicuously on or within valuable personal belongings and priceless works of art.
More details at http://www.digitalangel.net/index.htm
Basic Features of Digital Angel
The idea behind Digital Angel is to build a microchip that can be either implanted in or closely bonded to the body. This microchip will include biosensors that will measure the biological parameters of the body and store this information.
It will also have an antenna that will receive signals from GPS satellites. The geological locator of the chip can be derived from these signals. The antenna also communicates with ground stations. It will receive commands from the stations and will send the biological information and location data to the ground station. This could take the form of a distress signal sent to a monitoring facility when the unit detects a medical emergency.
The chip will be equipped with a micro battery. This battery will be self-rechargeable taking energy from the body or from its surroundings. All these components will be combined into a unit the size of a dime.
Digital Angel will remain dormant most of the time. It will only be activated by the wearer or by commands from the ground station. The purpose is to save battery energy and to avoid interference with other devices, such as medical equipment or airplanes.
The unit can be turned off by the wearer, thereby making the monitoring voluntary. It will not intrude on personal privacy except in applications applied to the tracking of criminals.
Digital Angel measures bodily parameters; however, it does not interact with the body chemically or biologically. It is harmless and will not interfere with body functions in any way.
AMONG THE POTENTIAL USES LISTED:
Warfare: In warfare, knowing where the soldiers are located, if they are alive or wounded, is a crucial factor to the Commanders.
Law Enforcement: Digital Angel can be used in law enforcement in keeping track of parolees, people under house arrest, and in the witness protection programs.

"Digital Angel Breakthrough Technology Goes Live!"
Applied Digital Solutions will unveil an operational prototype of its revolutionary Digital Angel technology. Chairman sees multi-billion dollar market potential via licensing and services integrated with Web-enabled wireless devices. The prototype to be unveiled at an invitation-only, New York City event this October represents a major communications technology breakthrough -- the first-ever operational combination of bio-sensor technology and Web-enabled wireless telecommunications linked to GPS location-tracking systems.
PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, JULY 31, 2000 -- Applied Digital Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSX) today announced that it will host a special, invitation-only event in New York City this coming October to demonstrate an operational prototype of its revolutionary "Digital Angel" technology. As previously announced, the prototype of the device was to be ready by the end of this year. But Applied Digital's Chairman and CEO, Richard J. Sullivan, said today that the development of the technology had progressed well ahead of schedule.
Those attending the event in New York City will see a working, multimedia demonstration of Digital Angel's technological building blocks. A miniature sensor device -- smaller than a grain of rice and equipped with a tiny antenna -- will capture and wirelessly transmit a person's vital body-function data, such as body temperature or pulse, to an Internet-integrated ground station. In addition, the antenna will also receive information regarding the location of the individual from the GPS satellite. Both sets of data -- medical information and location -- will then be wirelessly transmitted to the ground station and made available on Web-enabled desktop, laptop or wireless devices. This demonstration represents the first time these technologies have been united into one functioning system.
Background on Digital Angel
In December of 1999, Applied Digital Solutions announced that it had acquired the patent rights to a miniature digital transceiver -- which it has named Digital Angel. In some of its applications, the tiny device is expected to be bonded closely to the body or implanted just under the skin. The Company believes Digital Angel will be able to send and receive data and be located by GPS (Global Positioning System) technology. In addition to monitoring the location and medical condition of at-risk patients, the Company believes Digital Angel could have other applications that will prove to be extremely popular in the marketplace. These applications include locating lost or missing individuals or household pets; tracking endangered wildlife; managing livestock and other farm-related animals; pinpointing the location of valuable stolen property; finding lost airline baggage and postal packages; managing the commodity supply chain; preventing the unauthorized use of firearms; and providing a tamper-proof means of identification for enhanced e-commerce security. For more information about Digital Angel, visit www.digitalangel.net.
NOTE: There are other separate websites devoted to this Chip Implant thing. This site at http://www.idchip.com/s1/main.htm "was intended to be little more than a mild curiosity not a cataclysmic event but it turned into "The War of the Worlds-Internet Edition", according to Bill Cross its designer who apologized to all those "freaked out" by it. Yet is also attracted lots of attention from people at the United States Air Force, NASA, United States Navy, IBM and Microsoft according to his user's logs. His project was to create a spoof website of a company peddling the mark of the beast (...) to see which high-tech companies would visit the site.
