‘Unschooling’: Home learning the future of US education?

Published on Sep 16, 2012 by RussiaToday

There’s class warfare in the U.S., but it’s nothing to do with social status. Teachers there are walking out in their thousands, demanding better pay and conditions. And as schools see a marked decline in staff and standards, more and more families are taking the concept of homework to its ultimate conclusion, as RT’s Marina Portnaya explains.

It’s every parent’s worst nightmare. One moment their child is perfectly healthy. The next, they’ve stopped breathing and are turning blue. For many children, the merest hint of nut is all it takes to send them into anaphylactic shock. Food allergies are on the increase and the number of children affected has more than doubled in the past ten years. Yet simple precautions could significantly cut the death rate. This week’s documentary, ‘When Food Kills’ is a wake up call to the rising danger of food allergies.

“Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food.” — Hippocrates

That’s the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film ‘Food Matters’ from first-
time Producer-Directors James Colqhuoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.

“With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and ourtendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with
our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. ‘Food Matters’ sets about uncovering the trillion dollar
worldwide “Sickness Industry” and giving people some scientifically verifiable solutions for curing disease naturally.” – James

And in what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.

‘Food Matters’ is to be launched globally via the internet using full screen video technology.

As climate change crisis looms, presidential campaigns stay quiet
By Erika Bolstad
McClatchy Newspapers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It was just six words, but when President Barack Obama gave a shout-out to global warming in his acceptance speech this month, he reintroduced an issue that had all but disappeared from the political debate.

“Climate change is not a hoax,” Obama said, an assertion that brought Democratic National Convention delegates to their feet, as he pledged to continue approaching energy policy in a way he said would “continue to reduce the carbon pollution that is heating our planet.”

In a year when the political debate has lacked nearly any discussion of climate change, some environmentalists have struggled to summon enthusiasm for the Democratic president they helped elect in 2008 in part because of his views on global warming. So they rejoiced when the president rebutted a taunt tossed out by Republican candidate Mitt Romney the week before. Romney had quipped in his own acceptance speech in Tampa, Fla., that Obama “promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet.”

Hungary Is In Trouble After Throwing Out Monsanto AND The IMF – Business Insider

Hungary Is In Trouble After Throwing Out Monsanto AND The IMF
Raúl Ilargi Meijer, The Automatic Earth | Sep. 8, 2012, 7:56 AM | 13,754 | 51

I don’t know about you, but I would label my personal knowledge of Hungary as wanting, if not painfully incomplete. It’s not an easy country to come to grips with, not least of all of course because Hungarian doesn’t look like any western language we know with the possible exception of Finnish. I did visit just after the Wall came down, and remember huge contrasts, almost paradoxes, between rural poverty and a capital, Budapest, that was much richer than other capitals such as Prague, a leftover of Budapest’s status as meeting place between western and eastern diplomats and businessmen.

BBC News – History of the world: Who to leave out?

History of the world: Who to leave out?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00xnr43
Attempting to tell the history of the whole world in one go is a leviathan of a task. Knowing what to leave out is a struggle, says Andrew Marr, presenter of History of the World.
Once, many of us got our sense of history from illustrated books or partwork series.
David Attenborough, who as controller of BBC Two commissioned Kenneth Clark’s groundbreaking Civilisation, had himself been inspired by HG Wells’s An Outline of History.
For me, it was other books, from Ladybirds to a massive 1920s historical encyclopaedia.
