FRESH, coming to you - a food revolution - through your door to the back yard.Ooooby.org a NZ initiative out of Waiheke Island, is revitalising localized community, connection with neighbors and in particular a revolution around food.Using today’s web technology, Ooooby connects people together in a supportive collaboration. This resulting synergy is bringing innovation to food production, distribution and eating - resulting in goodwill and camaraderie by working towards a more healthy, coherent lifestyle and community.

And now distributing across town a box, 'The Box' of fresh grown vital food that ultimately is showing the way to community sufficiency.

Wayne Cartwright, an ex-professor of Strategic Management, University of Auckland, now a business consultant, is very much part of main stream society.In this full blown analysis of the immediate environmental challenges facing us, he offers a number of solutions plus strategic concepts.Imagine a large circle, this is the Earths environment, then visualize another smaller circle within that - this circle is seen as Society, and within this circle a much smaller circle again - this is the Economy.This is the concept of Strong Sustainability.The environment takes precedence having been around us for eons, society for millennia and economics and industry very recently.Listen to a very coherent environmental statement on the ‘critical factors’ of what is happening on planet earth today, and what is at stake.
If you are a deep ecologist, a committed permaculture adherent, or a staunch environmental activist, you already understand the enormity of what is happening. However, for mainstream society, this crucial interview fills in the vital gaps.Our ‘global commons’ is under assault from our industrial and farming practices. The ‘global commons’ is that which is not owned by people, corporations or governments. For example the atmospheric envelope that surrounds our planet and the global seas and oceans are free for the human species to use.Subjects covered:Magnitude and speed of change, and that politicians don't understand what the environment is. That most of our corporate leaders don't get it either. Plus what is the steady-state economy?That a new paradigm of ethics needs to be entered into and that shifting values away from accumulated material things (to a lesser degree) would be a very prudent action.The priority for learning institutions is to teach new skills of what is happening, in particular leadership skills being an imperative.Also, how do people become AWARE of what is happening and what is then required?This insightful interview is a call for unity of peoples and purpose from the local to the global. And the important question, do we have reverence for nature as well as reverence for ourselves?In a commercial world that sells us distractions at a discount, how long can we avoid the obvious and deny the inevitable when so much is at stake?Will Crew Members of Spaceship Earth awaken to this mission in time to bring our Ship and Crew safely through?This is an interview for those who are courageous and bold.http://www.phase2.orghttp://www.anewnz.org.nz/vision.asp?id=630
Search the web for keywords: 2012, solar, sun activity and you will find streaming at you significant data that our solar system will become very active then, translating to huge influxes of neutrinos and photons from the sun coming our way, very possibly overriding electronics on our planet, with all silicon chips being affected.Why are governments and media so quiet about this?With all information doubling exponentially we now find ourselves in information overload, with over 8,000 scientific and technical papers being published daily how can we grasp what is significant and apply this to our lives?Fortunately, here in Auckland at the public event 2012, three New Zealanders in leadership roles have committed to stand above the parapet.

Russell Targ is a physicist who has spent much of his life through the 1970s and 1980s working at the Stanford Research Institute which is an extension of Stanford University in California. This is where he and his colleague Harold E. Puthoff co-founded a 23-year, $25-million program of research into psychic abilities and their operational use for the U.S. intelligence community, including the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency and Army Intelligence.Since retiring Russell has continued his exploration into the realms of parapsychology and ESP and relates that 5000 years ago, Hinduism and 2,500 years ago Buddhism understood through meditative practices what we are just learning about today.He emphasizes that we need to cherish the body that we inhabit, and that there is a transcendent knowing, a transcendent doing, and a transcendent being that we as a humanity have very little to no understanding.
Where Leading Edge Science is taking us today is that:We can heal both locally and at a distance, and we can shift our awareness to travel, (called "remote viewing') in consciousness to distant places and be fully cognizant of what we experience.He also confirmed of the possibility to access the luminous 'akashic' records, where all information about our past both individually and as a race is 'stored' in a non material library outside of time.And that the science is firming up that we have having lived lives before on this planet - is now becoming more certain.Listen to Russell tell of the hidden capabilities of a humanity who have been very enmeshed in the 'outside' world and yet when we still ourselves, a whole realm of profound possibilities can make themselves known.Russell will be in Auckland on the 15th & 16th October.http://www.espresearch.comAlso: Listen to Adonia Wylie of the Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust.She explains what the forthcoming Science, Consciousness and Spirituality Conference is endeavouring to impart, here in Auckland on the 15th, 16th and 17th of October.
