Tora Fisher is a New York based singer-songwriter and performance artist. When she was young, her mother encouraged her to develop her artistic side while her father exposed her to a world outside of the arts: he created the Fisher House Foundation, a network of comfort homes where military and their families can stay at no cost while their loved ones receive care and treatment. Tora developed a keen interest in these two starkly different worlds: that of the arts, and the art of war.
When Tora was 13, she experienced the unfathomable when she was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed her father, stepmother, and four others. Her resilience and determination to recover from this trauma was nurtured by her love of music and performance and her ability to pursue her dreams of being a singer-songwriter, pianist, dancer and recording artist. She has also fulfilled her dream of supporting her father's legacy by donating proceeds from her CDs to the Fisher House Foundation.
As Tora so aptly put it, "its not about what happened to me; it's about what's happening."Published on May 31, 2014

John Perkins, co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance, discusses the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor, an indigenous prophecy told by first peoples all over the world about a time dominated by an intellectual, masculine, mind-driven consciousness, which is followed by an opportunity for balance between that consciousness and one that is heart-driven, intuitive and feminine. It is a call for a shift in humanity's relationship to the Earth and our relationship to each other. According to the prophecy, that time is now.
The prophecy only mentions the opportunity for this balance, making it a call for a shift in humanity's relationship to the Earth and our relationship to each other. It's up to us to bring forth this new level of consciousness by raising awareness and taking action for the planet and all life on Earth. We must live everyday as if it was Earth Day.

Walmart Chairman and Former CEO Michael T. Duke says Walmart looks at more than just corporate profits when it considers sustainability. He speaks at the ECO:comics conference in Santa Barbara, Calif.Published on Apr 3, 2014
Smaller environmental footprint will lead to greater profit in the long run is Mr. Duke's main point in this excerpt of ana interview Environmental sustainability is a narrow focus of the term ignoring the social - people - and prosperity elements, both of which Walmart plays a big role with a considerable impact on citizens. Walmart and Sam's Club employs roughly 2.2 million people worldwide and is the largest private employer in the United States.
In April, top CEOs and investors, pioneering entrepreneurs, environmental experts and policy makers convene at ECO:nomics, The Wall Street Journal’s conference in Santa Barbara, to discuss and debate the most critical issues facing leaders who are driving change at the intersection of business and the environment.
We will have large corporations with infrastructures that have a smaller ecological footoprint and institutional self-promotional statements and conferences such as ECO:nomics, but our future will remain unsustainable as the mind-set of what Dr. Chet Bowers refers to as "deep cultural assumptions that support the individualistic/industrial/consumer-dependent culture that is ecologically unsustainable" remains the driving force in our Society and at Walmart.
Documentary of one of the great philosphers of the 20th Century, an epistemologist - anthropologist.Uploaded on Dec 25, 2010
Gregory Bateson [1904 - 1980] - Anthropologist, Social Scientist, Cyberneticist - known as Gregory– was one of the most
important social scientists of this century. Strongly opposing those scientists who attempted to ‘reduce’
everything to mere matter, he was intent upon the task of re-introducing ‘Mind’ back into the scientific
equations -writing two famous books Steps to an Ecology of Mind, and Mind & Nature as part of this task.
From his point of view Mind is a constituent part of ‘material reality’ and it is thus nonsensical to try to split
mind from matter. Before being championed by the counter-culture of the 1960’s Bateson had been busy
in the 20’s and 30’s as an anthropologist in Bali, and in helping to found the science of cybernetics among
many other things. Adopted by many thinkers in the anti-psychiatry movement because he provided a
model and a new epistemology for developing a novel understanding of human madness, and also for
his invention of the theory of the double bind.
Using public monies to reduce carbon footprint, practice energy conservation, and raise the environmental awareness among citizens in Ireland. €9 billion is spent by the public sector on goods and services annually in Ireland! Dublin fireman Neil McCabe showed how with a little ingenuity, this money could result in environmentally friendly buildings and huge cost savings to the public sector but will local authorities and the government take notice.
Thats €100bn in spending in the next 10 years, shouldnt that money be spend on local, environmentally sound, clean products and services? Moving to a green economy is a low carbon economy.
It would save money and create jobs, so whats stopping us.
