Thu, 03/05/2015
The Board of Commissioners for Multnomah County has voted to restrict the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, and prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in business places where traditional smoking is already banned.
The ordinance will not exempt vape shops from the smoking ban, a stipulation that several people testifying at City Hall claimed to be unfair due to the need for consumers to try out products within vape shops.
The ordinance will go into effect in thirty days, on April 5th.        
KBOO’s Ethan Martin spoke earlier today with Gregory Conley from the American Vaping Association.

Here’s a summarized, paraphrased report that I got from TomDispatch today:
 
Are Pilots Deserting Washington's Remote-Control War?
A New Form of War May Be Producing a New Form of Mental Disturbance
By Pratap Chatterjee (http://www.tomdispatch.com/authors/pratapchatterjee)
 
Drone pilots are quitting in record numbers.  And Code Pink’s appearance at the Nevada Command Center, CREACH, has got to be at least a little unnerving: it is as if their mums or older sisters showed up at their workplace to call them out as the murderers that they are. 15:00 minutes (10.3 MB)

"...a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing...."

- Shakespeare

Meanwhile, back in Switzerland, the 6-plus-one continue serious talks that do in fact signify something.  And they chose for the most part to ignore that fact the fat little baby Bibi had shite himself again on the world stage and needed his nappies changed.  
How stupid are Americans?
This is how: Netanyahu's approval rating went up after his speech.  Odd too because the speech itself overlooked the threat of ISIS and al-Qaeda...

Wed, 03/04/2015
Host Sutree has a very informative and intricate conversation with Annam (Elle Collier Re) and David Sawyer about what neutrality is, How being in a state of neutrality is personally revelatory and how important it is to live fully and peacefully.

Annam ... (Elle Collier Re)
 (The Word 'Annam' is used as an honorary title and endearment.
Annam in Celtic means soul or life. In Sanscrit, food. In Arabic, gift.)

Annam (Elle) assumes, delivers, and pulses the Word of Absolute Love. 
The words brought forth are through energetic core alignment 
to the direct and specific Logic that Utters and is full of Light.
