"(NaturalNews) The French National Assembly has adopted a bill to limit exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated by wireless technologies - cell phones, tablets, Wi-Fi etc. This bill will mean the following:
• A ban on Wi-Fi in all childcare facilities for children under the age of 3.
• Cell phone manufacturers will have to recommend the use of hand-free kits.
• A ban on all advertising targeting children under 14."

"Incentives are critical to wolf conservation. My first insight into their importance came in a small schoolhouse in St. Anthony, Idaho, in 1984. I had brought together about twenty livestock producers from the area who would be affected by reintroduction of wolves. I thought that if I could better understand their concerns, together we could figure out what we needed to do to bring wolves back to Yellowstone National Park and central Idaho.....
....Since the reintroduction program began in 1995, the number of wolves in the wild in Yellowstone and central Idaho has gone from zero to over four hundred animals. Currently there are thirteen wolf packs in Yellowstone. "1Hank Fisher
A Learn Liberty video about an innovative wolf conservation program, explained by Laura Huggins of the Property and Environment Research Center (PERC). PERC explores the role free markets and property rights can play in protecting the environment and conserving endangered species by thinking in terms of establishing the correct economic incentives for conservation. This is interesting to me as typical solutions in this area consist of stronger state controls and regulations, with markets seen as being things that are hostile to conservation. We live in a time where we're in danger of witnessing the extinction of many species and surely all options need to be on the table when considering the best action to take to prevent this. Even if you find it distasteful that animals should have to justify themselves by producing profit for someone, high moral ground isn't going to feel very good when they're all extinct.

This is not a one off for the Grammy's, last year the symbolism whilst present seems to have been less overt, whilst 2012 saw
The Vigilant citizen covered both events -
Finally an awareness of these themes seems to be creeping more into the public consciousness, with sports stars tweeting about the darkness of the Grammy's and Christian performers pulling out.1 The comedy video below has gained over 170,000 hits on youtube in the past week, its creators present the Grammy award for 'Illuminate Puppet of the Year.' With the exception of one tasteless joke about Adele, it's very funny and disturbingly accurate.

"I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us, and they will not move in the Syrian territory’s direction without coordinating with us. These groups do not scare us. We use them in the face of the Syrian regime but they will have no role or influence in Syria’s political future.”Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, director general of the Saudi Intelligence Agency, to Vladimir Putin, August 20131
In the video below geopolitical annalist James Corbett speculates on the deeper power structures that may lie behind the recent and tragic bombings in Volgograd. Mr. Corbett speculates that the bombings may be connected to Russia's support for the Assad Regime in Syria and points to the rather interesting statement from Prince Bandar Bin Sultan to Vladimir Putin last August, where he claimed Saudi Intelligence controlled Chechen terrorist groups and that he could protect the Olympics from them, in return for a compromise over Syria.
It's interesting that whilst Russia Today did not directly raise the possibility of a foreign state being involved in the bombings, by inviting James Corbett on the show they basically ensured that it would be brought up! Given this is his specialist area it's hard to imagine this wasn't intentional.
