Alexander Oey traveled throughout the United States and filmed communities who are taking matters into their own hands. 50 of the 46 U.S. states are nearly bankrupt. Over 13 million Americans are unemployed. More than 49 million people live below the poverty line.

Dangerous animals, including crocodiles, snakes and hippos, have found their way into homes and communities in central Nigeria after devastating flooding, residents say.
The creatures were carried along flood-swollen rivers, say the authorities.
“There is now a hippopotamus in [my] house,” Benue state resident Wuese Jirake told the BBC. “I hope that when it is tired, it may leave my home.”
Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced by the flooding.
Hundreds also died in the worst flooding in decades.

Deceptions – the movie


Uploaded by deceptionsUSA on Jan 27, 2011


Deceptions is a 58 minute journey of discovery I made while preparing for a presentation on Brain Injury. I know how important awareness, choice and consequence is in the recovery of brain function yet I discovered that much of the world is engaged in the exact opposite. They were being programmed to deny what they have seen what they have read and what they have heard. They were not to be critical thinkers and reasoning human beings because if they were they would readily see that that constant war, the destruction of the constitution, constant fear, loss of freedom and economic collapse would not be the choice of any rational person. Welcome to a New World Order where being managed has become being human.

In less than an hour I take another quick look at the facts of 9/11, the Bush years and Obama’s deceptions to a realization that there is a higher elite pulling the strings, an ultra elite that is all about wealth management beyond levels imaginable by 99.9% of humanity. An elite that controls everything and any hope for the masses lies in their ability to reclaim their power of reasoning stop believing what they are told and discover for themselves what is true for them. This is the hope and Egypt is a good example of the people realizing that corruption and suppression at some point must end.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
