chief Raoni

The chief Raoni cries when he learns that brazilian president Dilma released the beginning of construction of the hydroelectric plant of Belo Monte, even after tens of thousands of letters and emails addressed to her and which were ignored as the more than 600 000 signatures. That is, the death sentence of the peoples of Great Bend of the Xingu river is enacted. Belo Monte will inundate at least 400,000 hectares of forest, an area bigger than the Panama Canal, thus expelling 40,000 indigenous and local populations and destroying habitat valuable for many species - all to produce electricity at a high social, economic and environmental cost, which could easily be generated with greater investments in energy efficiency.

southern Sudan

From the series The violent cattle keepers of southern Sudan’s Pastoralist Tribes.

Pete Muller writes that these cattle keepers are members of the Dinka Rek sub-tribe, who describe themselves as a “brigade.” In this remote area of southern Sudan, there are no signs of the army or the police, and no government as such. Consequently, these men form a militia to protect themselves from marauders of other equally well-armed pastoralist groups in the area.

In Living Color-Tracy Chapman Parody

Crossota alba

The jellyfish Crossota alba. Delicate jellyfish such as this thrive in the deep sea, where no wind, waves, or turbulence threaten to tear them apart, and are successful predators in spite of their fragility. In the quiet, dark environment this transparent, inch-wide animal sits motionless, with stinging tentacles arranged like fishing lines in a circle, and waits to encounter prey—ambushing, rather than stalking its food.

Haruki Murakami (Sputnik Sweetheart)

“Why do people have to be this lonely? What’s the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?”

“The goal is to capture the structure of supercell thunderstorms, the feeling of standing in wind gusts breaching 50 MPH, the lightning, the rumble of hail. I’ve never seen anything like these storms before… . They are born everyday, they fight against their environment to stay alive, change their form as they age, they lose their strength, and eventually they die. The hope is that the images presented communicate how I feel while standing in front of these amazing forces of nature”.

Moon jelly by Alexander Semenov

Porpita porpita—the blue button jelly —is a neustonic species mostly found in the tropics; that is, it floats right neat the surface of the water. The circular disc is made of chitin and filled with gas, allowing these jellies to float. The tentacles (zooids) radiating from the disc do all the feeding.

W.G. Sebald

Even now, when I try to remember… the darkness does not lift but becomes heavier as I think how little we can hold in mind, how everything is constantly lapsing in oblivion with every extinguished life, how the world is, as it were, draining itself, in that the history of countless places and objects which themselves have no power of memory is never heard, never described or passed on.

Japan, Two Months After the Disaster

“A lot has been said about Japanese resilience and their response to the March 11 disaster,” writes Associated Press photographer David Guttenfelder. “But the stoicism hides the deep personal suffering. The humble efficiency makes it seem like help is not needed. I hope that our photographs will help people understand and continue to help Japan.”

CRUSH - Photosynthesizers (Directed by Olawale Ogbonlowo)


weekly scorpio

After a prolonged period of feeling powerfully unsettled following an intense disruption to the very core of your being, you can finally start to relax. Venus and Neptune come together at the bottom of your chart, producing a feeling of well-being that you haven’t had for a long time. With such a peaceful energy in your root system, it won’t be too huge a surprise when you encounter the unexpected around work and service possibilities in your life. The Sun and Uranus come together on Monday to bring an opportunity you don’t see coming, but just because you didn’t know it was there for you is no excuse not to go for it. You do prefer to know what’s under every rock before you go forward, but there are times in life when that’s just not the best way to make your move.

weekly scorpio

You’re moving through a time of intense personal adjustment, and it’s a great idea this week, while the energies support you, to take a giant step outside your proverbial box and get a taste of what else is out there that you have not been availing yourself of recently. It’s clearly the end of an era, and while it may not be the perfect time to start out on the next leg of your journey, it is a moment tailor made to test out the waters, see what’s going on ‘out there’ and come up with a tentative plan or two to get yourself mobilized in the near future. The important thing to remember is that you never have to go anywhere you don’t want to go. But how will you know what you want if you don’t take a taste?

Fill your senses.

weekly scorpio

You’re probably getting tired of hearing it, but it’s important to say it again and again: what’s done is done and you haven’t lost a thing. It’s all for your benefit, for your evolution, and if you let go and let God, you’ll find yourself in that very place couldn’t figure out how to get to. Do you understand? Your future depends on your willingness to let it all go. No matter how much you believed in it, wanted it, nurtured it, or prayed for it, it doesn’t serve you any longer. If it did, it would still be with you. Dream your dream for the future, the one you really wish for, not the version you were settling on. If you have the courage to take this moment on, you’ll learn in one undeniable flash what true manifestation is.

It’s why you’re here.

weekly scorpio

With the Pisces New Moon this Friday you begin a brand new chapter of creative productivity, or perhaps it’s more appropriate to say you begin a chapter that ends the old cycle and kicks off the new one. All the struggle you’ve been through recently was not what it appeared to be. Sometimes the most uncomfortable moments yield the most magnificent results. The loss you sustained, the one that broke your heart, was only opening you up where you couldn’t do it before. Now that you’re cracked open, allow all those creative juices to bubble up and over. This week begins a month long cycle of realizing just how ingenious you really can be. No one effects transformation in others the way you do. That treasure you’ve been reaching for has been in you the whole time.

Access the buried treasure within. It’s time.

The impact of open-cast mining in India.

A young woman stumbles as she tries to carry a large basket of coal as she and others illegally scavenge at an open-cast mine in the village of Bokapahari in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand where a community of coal scavengers live and work. The contrast between India old and new is nowhere more vivid than among the villages of coal scavengers in eastern India, sitting on an apocalyptic landscape of smoke and fire from decades-old underground coal fires. While India grows ever more middle-class and awash in creature comforts, these villagers risk their lives scavenging coal illegally for a few dollars a day, and come back to homes that at any moment could be swallowed by a fresh fire-induced crack in the earth.

No matter what else is going on in your life, on any level, in any arena, leave it where it is and turn every bit of your attention to your creative process now. The planets are gathering in your 5th house, where your inventive resource pool exists. Trust your inner guidance mechanism to show you to those hidden pearls of creative wisdom that have been lying there, waiting for you to open them up and turn them on. Dream your dream and trust your Self to Know the way to get there. You do. You always have. There is really nothing that can stop you now. All those people places and things that were once there have left so that you can do what you’ve come to do unimpeded.

Stop reaching for what you think you want and acknowledge what you truly have instead

weekly scorpio

You’ve really been through it, and there are very few words that could adequately describe the inner alchemy that has taken place. It’s been intense, and severe, and at certain moments, unbearable, but you’ve stayed with your emotions and as a result you’re about to realize that you’ve rounded a major corner and you’re on your way back to the lighter, happier parts of your Self. The Full Moon at the top of your chart on Friday lights up what was not so easily recognizable before, which is that your depth, your passion, and your intense emotional nature is a running river of life, and it nurtures and nourishes you, when you allow it to, far beyond the kind of sustenance most people have access to. The white water is behind you.

You can take it easier and let yourself coast for a while.

Luis Humberto Soriano is a 38 years old primary school teacher who lives in La Gloria, a small town in northeastern Colombia. From Monday to Friday, Soriano teaches in the rural school of La Gloria. But on weekends he loads his two donkeys, Alfa and Beto, with mathematics, history, geography and grammar books and heads out for the countryside. There he gives lessons to the kids living on the farms scattered on the hills surrounding La Gloria, who do not have the chance to go to normal school because of long distance and poor economic conditions. This is the Biblioburro, the travelling school. After 10 years this has become an extarordinary institution in this part of Colombia.

Owl Nebula

The “eyes” of the Owl Nebula

The Owl Nebula (M97), an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen gas, helium and other ionized gases formed roughly 6,000 years ago in the constellation Ursa Major, is regarded as one of the more complex of the planetaries. The object gets it name due to the appearance of owl-like “eyes” when view through a large telescope under dark sky conditions with the aid of a so-called “nebula filter.” The “eyes” are also easily visible through photographs taken of the nebula.

Do you realize how incredibly strong and indelible you are? No, really. Have the events of recent months gotten you to refocus on yourself enough to reclaim your greatness and begin the inner transformation that is yours to undertake at this time? One by one the planets that preside over your mind, body and spirit have connected with your ruler, Pluto, to facilitate a transformation so powerful you may not have known what hit you. But now, as Venus makes this same connection and completes the realignment at the heart level, it should become crystal clear that all the upheaval has been for your well-being. You may have already noticed the quality of honesty and truth that is expressed every time you open your mouth these days.

Chiron enters your creative sector and a long, powerful realignment of your emotional and spiritual resources begins.

Amiri Baraka

Amiri Baraka

He came back and shot. He shot him. When he came
back, he shot, and he fell, stumbling, past the
shadow wood, down, shot, dying, dead, to full halt.

At the bottom, bleeding, shot dead. He died then, there
after the fall, the speeding bullet, tore his face
and blood sprayed fine over the killer and the grey light.

Pictures of the dead man, are everywhere. And his spirit
sucks up the light. But he died in darkness darker than
his soul and everything tumbled blindly with him dying

down the stairs.

We have no word

on the killer, except he came back, from somewhere
to do what he did. And shot only once into his victim’s
stare, and left him quickly when the blood ran out. We know

the killer was skillful, quick and silent, and that the victim
probably knew him. Other than that, aside from the caked sourness
of the dead man’s expression, and the cool surprise in the fixture

of his hands and fingers, we know nothing.

Haruki Murakami

By living our lives, we nuture death. True as this might be, it was only one of the truths we had to learn. What I learnred from Naoko’s death was this: no truth can cure the sadness we feel from losing a loved one. No truth, no sincerity, no strength, no kindness, can cure that sorrow. All we can do is see that sadness through the end and learn something from it, but what we learn will be no help in facing the next sadness that comes to us without warning.”
— Norwegian Wood, Haruki Murakami

Anaïs Nin

You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.”
— Anaïs Nin

Moon and Venus

Moon and Venus Over Switzerland by David Kaplan

Sometimes a morning sky can be a combination of serene and surreal. Such a sky perhaps existed before sunrise this past Sunday as viewed from a snowy slope in eastern Switzerland. Quiet clouds blanket the above scene, lit from beneath by lights from the village of Trübbach. A snow covered mountain, Mittlerspitz, poses dramatically on the upper left, hovering over the small town of Balzers, Liechtenstein far below. Peaks from the Alps can be seen across the far right, just below the freshly rising Sun. Visible on the upper right are the crescent Moon and the bright planet Venus. Venus will remain in the morning sky all month, although it will likely not be found in such a photogenic setting.

Life is all about energy. What you put out does come back. Karma is a real deal, it is simply the law of cause and effect. Lately you may have been wondering about such things because a great deal more may have been going out lately than has been coming back. There is no way to measure the benefits of recent energetic efforts yet Scorpio. Saturn the planet linked with hard work leading to the harvest is stopping in the sky on Wednesday, January 26 and moving retrograde in your house of culmination. You have yet to see the results of something you have labored long and hard for and the true dividends for your efforts may not materialize until summer. You will be receiving some validating feedback this week, and you will experience a step up from that the following week, reminding you that the struggle was all worth it.

What you put out does come back, and its comin’ Scorpio, it is comin’!

It’s been a couple of months of deep inner soul searching, getting at the core of your issues, much of it all by yourself. There’s nothing more scary than going into the dark alone, but after all, it’s what you do best. You can say you really dislike it, and that you prefer to be with a companion on a mission like this, but it isn’t possible to face the darkness when someone else’s light is changing the way the darkness appears. You’re here for a reason. Mercury completes his retrograde journey this week in the same conjunction with Pluto that began the whole thing. You have come full circle. Now all you have to do is admit it to yourself.

The light you’re seeking is within you, and if you don’t recognize it all the searching in the world will turn up nothing

You experienced something of an explosion in your life prior to the two eclipses that just took place, and though you didn’t know it at the time, that event sent you on an inner journey to the brand new center of you. You were caught off guard, which is never easy, and then the wormhole delivered you to a place you never expected to go, even though just where that is may not be obvious to you yet. No matter what, you’ve been profoundly focused on your own well being and that’s never a bad thing. The Truth is, while you weren’t looking ‘out there’ you were restored to that place in your heart where you can access your most significant feelings. You know what you want and how you feel as you never have before.

The major relationship upheaval of a couple of weeks ago has disrupted your life in ways you never expected, but you have to admit it’s turning out to be pretty fortunate after all. That total lunar eclipse to your partnership sector may have seemed to change everything, but in truth the shift is only just beginning. Tuesday’s solar eclipse occurs in your communication sector, and is ruled by Saturn, currently transiting your house of hidden agendas. It’s time to start talking, sharing whatever comes up without filter. Sure, it’s not your style, but then that wasn’t exactly getting you where you wanted to go was it? You’re going to be amazed at what one well placed word can do for you. The Jupiter Uranus conjunction marks a major revelation where creative possibilities are concerned. Run with whatever occurs to you.
