Moby comment on the phonies that are trancing out of their lives:
The Humane Society of Missouri started a program called the Shelter Buddies Reading Program. This program, designed to help frightened shelter dogs better acclimate to society, uses young children, ages 6 – 15, in order to slowly coax these dogs into again trusting humans.
But how do children, some barely even out of elementary school, possibly help these lonely, abandoned dogs?
The answer is simple: reading.

If trees could talk, what would they say? Emerging research suggests that if they had mouths, they might just say a whole lot because, believe it or not, trees have brains and intelligence, and are able to communicate with other trees much like humans do with other humans when in social situations.
Not only can they talk to each other, but trees also care for each other and feel pain, says forester Peter Wohlleben, who tells all of his experiences with trees in a recent piece for the Daily Mail Online. Far from just inanimate plants, trees do many of the things animals and humans do, though for many this is not necessarily obvious.

Would you be prepared to break the law to save your child’s life?
That’s just what happened to the Lambert family from Sydney Australia, who decided to give Katelyn, then just a baby, a cannabis extract.
“Who do you love more than your children? – your grandchildren,” says Joy Lambert, Katelyn’s grandmother. “So at 67 I decided I could be civilly disobedient and just do what was right for the children with epilepsy. That’s how I see it.”
A Bleak Future for Katelyn
Katelyn, now 4, was born with a rare genetic disorder called Dravet Syndrome, which at its worst saw her fitting over a thousand times a day. Starting when she was just 6 months old, Katelyn’s future looked bleak; despite taking a cocktail of antiepileptic medication, her seizures continued unabated, damaging her brain and mental function.
After a particularly harrowing two-and-a-half-hour seizure that saw Katelyn helicoptered to a specialist hospital, the family decided to look for alternative treatments. And before long Katelyn’s father Michael came across the CNN documentary about fellow Dravet sufferer Charlotte Fiji who, after taking high CBD/ low THC cannabis oil, had experienced an almost unthinkable improvement in her condition.
CBD, otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is one of over 100 compounds in the cannabis plant called Cannabinoids and has proven to have particular efficacy in cases of childhood epilepsy.
Have you read The Peanut Allergy Epidemic by historian Heather Fraser? She begins by asking us why the peanut allergy epidemic is only found in Western cultures, where at least 4 million people experience the mysterious phenomenon, yet there are virtually no reported cases in India, where peanuts just so happen to be the main ingredient in most baby food products.

It is the death-anniversary of the endlessly fascinating Mata Hari. Was she really a highly effective German spy or merely a fantasist who spun tales of espionage along with her exotic origin story?
Today we hear from that popular society palm-reader and seer “Cheiro” about his observations of that lady and the prediction of her death he claimed to have made when she first moved to Paris in the early 1900s.
