DISASTER MYTHOLOGY AND THE LAW

By Lisa Grow Sun†

 

Sociologists have identified a number of “myths”—widely shared misconceptions—about the ways people behave in the immediate aftermath of natural disasters. While these disaster myths have been the subject of intensive investigation by sociology scholars, they have been wholly neglected in legal scholarship. Yet these myths have important implications for disasterlaw and policy.

A List Of The Latest Arthur And Fiona Cristian Videos, Audios, Articles & Discussions Posted To The Love For Life Website | Love for Life | Eugenics | Scoop.it

We have unravelled "The System" and how we are brainwashed into supporting and maintaining it. We can explain this very clearly but we find that the brainwashing of "The System" is so effective that very few see it for what it is and thus remain trapped by it. Most men and women are so taken over by their belief systems that they are unable to listen to or read anything without placing the information of their belief systems over the information they are reading or hearing. Instead of taking in the information on offer and seeing how their belief systems measure up to the information, they take the information on offer and see how it measures up to their belief systems. If it doesn't fit in, the information is tossed out the door. It is a real challenge to learn to contemplate on information without clouding the message of that information with the information of our past experiences and our beliefs. Like black paint dripping into white so that it is no longer pure white, we cannot comprehend the message of new information while we are dripping our experiences and beliefs into it.

New Statesman - Legal myths about the Assange extradition | Eugenics | Scoop.it

Whenever the Julian Assange extradition comes up in the news, many of his supporters make various confident assertions about legal aspects of the case. 

 

Some Assange supporters will maintain these contentions regardless of the law and the evidence – they are like “zombie facts” which stagger on even when shot down; but for anyone genuinely interested in getting at the truth, this quick post sets out five common misconceptions and some links to the relevant commentary and material.  It complements a similar post on the leading Blog That Peter Wrote.

President Obama: ‘Rape Is Rape’

By Jonathan Easley and Amie Parnes - 2012-08-20

 

Akin said in an interview with a local Fox affiliate released on Sunday that, in cases of “legitimate rape,” pregnancy is rare because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

 

“Rape is rape,” Obama said at a White House press briefing. He called Akin's comments “way out there.”

 

“What I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians, the majority of which are men, making decisions that affect health of women,” Obama said.

Harvard cracks DNA storage, crams 700 terabytes of data into a single gram

Harvard cracks DNA storage, crams 700 terabytes of data into a single gram | Eugenics | Scoop.it

A bioengineer and geneticist at Harvard's Wyss Institute have successfully stored 5.5 petabits of data -- around 700 terabytes -- in a single gram of DNA, smashing the previous DNA data density record by a thousand times.

 

The work, carried out by George Church and Sri Kosuri, basically treats DNA as just another digital storage device. Instead of binary data being encoded as magnetic regions on a hard drive platter, strands of DNA that store 96 bits are synthesized, with each of the bases (TGAC) representing a binary value (T and G = 1, A and C = 0).

 

To read the data stored in DNA, you simply sequence it — just as if you were sequencing the human genome — and convert each of the TGAC bases back into binary. To aid with sequencing, each strand of DNA has a 19-bit address block at the start (the red bits in the image below) — so a whole vat of DNA can be sequenced out of order, and then sorted into usable data using the addresses.

Death by IQ: US inmates condemned by flawed tests - life - 15 August 2012 - New Scientist

Death by IQ: US inmates condemned by flawed tests - life - 15 August 2012 - New Scientist | Eugenics | Scoop.it

"TEXAS puts man with 61 IQ to death." This was just one of the lurid headlines that greeted the execution on 7 August of Marvin Wilson, killed by lethal injection at Huntsville State Penitentiary for the murder of a police informant in 1992.

 

Was he a child-like simpleton or a streetwise criminal? Both pictures were painted in court as experts contested conflicting IQ test scores and other lines of evidence. For Wilson, time ran out, but lawyers for dozens of other inmates on death row in the US are trying to prove that their clients are intellectually disabled, allowing their sentences to be commuted to life imprisonment.

Is there such a thing as 'male genocide'?

By Ngozi Godwell


It appears there is such a thing as 'male genocide'. Who would want to kill off the male population?

 

This is a complex subject, but the system used is not. To begin investigating 'male genocide' the best place to start is with documented historical fact. 'Male genocide' is a global issue and is not privy one country or race.

 

During and after World War I and was implemented in two phases: the wholesale killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and forced labor, and the deportation on death marches to the Syrian Desert of women, children, the elderly and infirm. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Genocide

 

For now, my focus is on phase one which; is the wholesale killing of able-bodied male population through massacre and forced labour. 

 

Case Study (1)  Genocide in Rwanda, 1994

The genocide in the tiny Central African country of Rwanda was one of the most intensive killing campaigns -- possibly the most intensive -- in human history. http://www.scoop.it/t/eugenics/p/2530926240/case-study-genocide-in-rwanda-1994  ;

Patch Self-help's comment, August 29, 2012 10:49 AM
Ngozi I am wonderring what has raised this concept as an issue with you? It is probably not something that I believe would come about consciously but there are many factors that collectively could have potential to bring about such an end. However to sustain the human species we might find that sperm banks do not provide a long term solution and so an entirely female population would only exist a short while before either rekindling the male factor of the human race or dying out altogether.
Also genders are not just straight forward male and female now if ever. In fact to be andronogeous has probably been more prolific than ever known. The 'wholesale killing of able bodied male population' is not a form of genocide specific to only half our species. Men and women have more values in common that we are led to think.
Ngozi Odochi (Godwell) Nwokocha's comment, August 29, 2012 5:45 PM
Hi Kate, what has sperm bank go to do with this particular topic, may I ask?

'The wholesale killing of able-bodied male population through massacre and forced labour. introduction got to do with the subject matter'

This is what this piece is about.
You need to make yourself clear Kate. Are you stating that I cannot have a keen interest in science, technology and society?
Patch Self-help's comment, August 31, 2012 1:47 PM
Hi Waine You ask what has sperm bank go to do with this particular topic? It is relevant if those who seem to be attempting to kill off males wish to retain procreation of the human race at all. Perhaps these killings are a conscious effort to eradicate males. Thats what male genocide would be if done intentionally. Changes in human development ocure naturally too and indications are that gender is not limited to just male and female, there options are multiple. This is not a new phenomenon but one which might offer hope. No killing.

Am I stating that I cannot have a keen interest in science, technology and society? No.

(OSLO, Norway) — Anders Behring Breivik got what he wanted — a prison term instead of an insanity ruling — as he received his sentence Friday for bomb and gun attacks that killed 77 people last year.

Breivik, a self-styled anti-Muslim militant, looked pleased as Judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen read the ruling, declaring him sane enough to be held criminally responsible for Norway’s worst peacetime attacks.

What was the role of the Vatican in the destruction of American political will to deal with overpopulation?

What was the role of the Vatican in the destruction of American political will to deal with overpopulation? | Eugenics | Scoop.it
Editor’s note: President Nixon’s “Special Message to the Congress on Problems of Population Growth” punctuated the beginning of the peak of American political will to deal with the mounting population crisis. The message, for the first time, committed the United States to confronting the population problem. Also rare, this special message was approved by Congress. Its passage was bipartisan, indicating broad political support for American political action to combat this problem. In the following chapter from his book, “The Life and Death of NSSM 200: How the Destruction of Political Will Doomed a US Population Policy”, N4CM Chairman Dr Stephen D Mumford reveals that the Vatican was subsequently intensely motivated to act against the two most important initiatives in American history to help control world population growth because the Catholic hierarchy was convinced that the survival of the institution of the Papacy was on the line.

Why in the World are They Spraying? (Full Length Documentary) « Federal Jack | Eugenics | Scoop.it

Michael J. Murphy)   People around the world are noticing that our planet’s weather is dramatically changing. They are also beginning to notice the long lingering trails left behind airplanes that have lead millions to accept the reality of chemtrail/geoengineering programs. Could there be a connection between the trails and our severe weather? While there are many agendas associated with these damaging programs, evidence is now abundant which proves that geoengineering can be used to control weather. In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. While geoengineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of global warming, it is now clear that they can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of a few by the leverage that weather control gives certain corporations over the Earth’s natural systems. This of course, is being done at the expense of every living thing on the planet.

Born To Be Wild? Landmark Study Shows Lab Rats Revert To Survival Mode Within Hours When Set Free... Is The Same True For Humans?

Despite not knowing what the natural world looks, smells or even feels like, a group of rodents whose forebears have been kept in cages for the past 96 years showed that their ancient genetic impulses quickly surfaced. 


Within hours of being freed, the rats started to return to their 'wild' ways, burrowing and following ancient mating instincts, behaviour which had never been possible when they were caged captives.
