Thousands exult in moon’s shadow from Brazil to Mongolia (MSN.COM News) "God is great, this shows the greatness of God," Nana Appah exclaimed as she joined the crowds on Ghana's Cape Coast beach. "This shows the greatness of nature. It is very, very beautiful. I’ve never experienced anything like this before." Cape Coast was one of the first spots on the African continent to fall under the spell of totality, which drew tourists to Libya, Egypt and Turkey as well. The air cooled and an eerie half-light descended over the ancient slave fort at Cape Coast, west of Ghana’s capital Accra, as the moon obscured the sun for approximately three minutes. Cries of “Hallelujah” and “Praise the Lord” rang out as watchers shouted and clapped in excitement, sharing protective glasses. Drivers hooted their horns.

By L.E.N. (KNN Writer) According to the Hebrew Calendar we are in the month of Aviv (the first month), which literally translates to Spring. Aviv or Spring, marks the beginning of the true new year. Spring is a time or renewal. According to Webster’s dictionary, not only is Spring a source of supply, Spring is also an ultimate source of action or motion. This is the true new year, when we spring into action, cleaning our homes, reorganizing our homes and our lives and watching the rebirth of nature all around us. We are all familiar with the popular term Spring Cleaning. This is the time to take out the old in order to make room for what is new. Taking our cues from nature, this is time for us to reemerge. This season marks the beginning of the year; certainly makes more sense, doesn’t it? The definition of Spring also states: the act or instance of leaping up or forward. This is the time to get up, set our plans into motion and move forward. Remember all those resolutions you made back in January? Wonder why none of those promises could be kept? It wasn’t time yet. Don’t be down on yourself. Spring into the new year by setting new goals. As the cyclical nature of life renews itself again, you must renew yourself too. Participate in the seasonal change by tuning into your body. Throw out those old clothes, those old feelings, that old relationship. Throw away whatever is keeping you from renewing yourself. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping. All the natural elements are urging us to come out. This is a time of celebration. We have labored through the long winter, cold months and the winter blues. The true New Year beckons us to come outside, renew our friendships, renew our vows, and renew that which is meaningful and life giving. Try again with those resolutions for the real New Year. See how much easier it is to keep those personal promises when all of nature is in support! We are natural beings who are nourished by this earth and must be in tune with the natural order. In this first month, the season of Spring, the true New Year, it is time for us to rise up from the earth. Open the windows and let the fresh air nourish fresh thinking. Go out into the sunlight, allow ourselves to be nourished and regain our glow. Let the rains of the season wash away last year’s residue. Sweep all the drama out the door. Let us start this new year by treating ourselves to all that nature and the spirit of the season have to offer. Two more words used in the definition of Spring are resilience and energy. These words bring about the essence of the New Year. We are resilient, here to celebrate another year. In order to be ready for what this New Year will bring, we must tap in to all positive sources of energy in order to revitalize and reenergize ourselves. The dormant nature of winter has allowed us much time to pray and meditate. The true New Year is time to make things manifest. Shanah Tovah! Happy New Year!
Threat of Major Hurricane Strike Grows for Northeast AccuWeather.com Warns That "Weather Disaster of Historic Proportions" Could Strike as Early as This Year (New York, NY - March 20, 2006)-The northeast U.S. coast could be the target of a major hurricane, perhaps as early as this season, according to research announced today by the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center. "The Northeast is staring down the barrel of a gun," said Joe Bastardi, Chief Forecaster of the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center. "The Northeast coast is long overdue for a powerful hurricane, and with the weather patterns and hydrology we're seeing in the oceans, the likelihood of a major hurricane making landfall in the Northeast is not a question of if but when."

Over 1.8 million people are currently behind bars in the United States. This represents the highest per capita incarceration rate in the history of the world. In 1995 alone, 150 new U.S. prisons were built and filled. Like the military/industrial complex, the prison industrial complex is an interweaving of private business and government interests. Its twofold purpose is profit and social control. Its public rationale is the fight against crime. In reality, however, most of the "criminals" we lock up are poor people who commit nonviolent crimes out of economic need. Violence occurs in less than 14% of all reported crime, and injuries occur in just 3%. In California, the top three charges for those entering prison are: possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for sale, and robbery. Violent crimes like murder, rape, manslaughter and kidnaping don't even make the top ten. PRISON LABOR -An American worker who once upon a time made $8/hour, loses his job when the company relocates to Thailand where workers are paid only $2/day. Unemployed, and alienated from a society indifferent to his needs, he becomes involved in the drug economy or some other outlawed means of survival. He is arrested, put in prison, and put to work. His new salary: 22 cents/hour. From worker, to unemployed, to criminal, to convict laborer, the cycle has come full circle. And the only victor is big business.
