|How a 'Fake News' Comedian Became an Influential Voice in American Politics|
from the Independent UK / via CommonDreams.org (Common Dreams News Center)
When Jon Stewart inaugurated his fake news anchor on The Daily Show eight years ago, his goal was to send up the hyperbolic and manufactured controversy of US Cable News and, if possible, be even more outrageous. Now, in a wonderful through-the-looking-glass
moment, he has supplanted the subjects of his mockery in the country's current affairs consciousness, and finds himself crowned the bemused voice of reason in an insane world.The underground comic has become such a cultural touchstone that The New York Times asked this week whether he has become "the most trusted man in America".

| The Legendary Origins of Tea from Spirit of Change Magazine (SpiritOfChange.org)|
The ritual of tea drinking is, very simply, a labor of love and provides great wealth to the health of the body. It is drunk as a beverage, but from the Buddhist point of view there is more to it than the physical refreshment we receive. As an elixir of sobriety and wakeful tranquility, tea remains a means of spiritual refreshment. The ritual of preparing and partaking of it is an occasion for

|Trance Dance - From Darkness Into Enlightenment by Ernesto Ortiz, LMT, CST / Primary facilitator for Journey to the Heart (via ByRegion Healing Arts Network / byregion.net)|
Trance Dance as we know it is a blend of ancient rituals with a modern twist - it is a way of recognizing our ancient heritage and applying it to our modern lifestyle. If we look at shamanic practices from all
over the world, we can clearly see that our original relationship to dancing and movement was for the purpose of connecting with a Higher Self, to worship and to heal. Our ancestors viewed nature, the earth and all of its elements as sacred, as en expression of God and the Divine. To duplicate through movement and sound was the first and most powerful way to connect with God and Spirit; we learned to use our bodies as the instrument that could carry the energy, the vibration to make this possible.

|Dextoxifying Your Home - Start with the Bedroom|
from Balanced Living Magazine (balancedlivingmag.com)
As you look to make your home safe and less toxic, budget concerns can quickly come to the forefront. Therefore, if you must choose only one room, the bedroom — where your defenseless mind, body and spirit re-fuel — is an ideal choice. A safe and non-toxic sleep environment can contribute to deep and restful sleep, offering numerous benefits and overall comfort. Of greatest concern in the
bedroom are the many fabrics that may contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

| FEATURED BOOK|
|LIFE and MIND — |
In Search of
the Physical Basis
Edited by Savely Savva
Contemporary physics cannot explain life. The postulated concept of the biofield control system and experimental and theoretical works presented in the book suggest ways to broaden current scientific paradigm. Experimental studies presented and referred to in this book suggest that the operation of the organism cannot be reduced to chemical interactions since contemporary chemistry knows only electric and thermal
forces; that the biological nuclear synthesis presented by Louis Kervran in 1960-80's is not a myth; that the non-structural memory of water manifests itself at organism, cellular and enzymes levels; that human intent and / or expectation may effect cellular equilibrium, etc.
