How You Can Keep Gord Downie’s Humanitarian Efforts Alive Even After His Passing

For those of you who have no clue who Gord Downie is, you are likely either not Canadian, or were born after the 90s. Gord Downie is the front man for the iconic Canadian band, The Tragically Hip. This band lives in the hearts of millions of Canadians and they are something we can basically call our own, as for some unknown reason they never really made it big anywhere else. This morning, Gord Downie passed on. He had been diagnosed with stage 4 terminal brain cancer in early 2016. In the true spirit of the band, they decided to do ... Read More

Why Ontario Needs To Take A Hard Look At The Animal Cruelty In Its Zoos

While many of us advocate against animal cruelty in a number of ways, when it comes to zoos, we often turn a blind eye — I know I certainly did for a long time. I had never really reflected on what zoos represented and how the animals were treated behind those bars. They were such a “normal” part of my childhood and I became so desensitized to them that I never really questioned their ethics until I reached adulthood. They’re seen as an attraction, a form of entertainment meant to please the modern man, and so we ignore the fact that animals ... Read More

Stretchable ‘skin’ gives robots the sense of touch

Ever slid your finger across a flat surface? You'll notice that a part of your flesh under the nail bulges out in the opposite direction of where you're sliding to, while the other side gets pulled taut. That's shear force at work -- and that's one of the things the artificial skin can mimic. See, the team embedded very, very tiny serpentine channels throughout the stretchable material and filled them with electrically conductive liquid metal. As the University of Washington explains: "As the robot finger slides along a surface, serpentine channels embedded in the skin and filled with electrically conductive ... Read More

International Group Of Award Winning Photographers Came Together To Expose The Illegal Wildlife Trade

People in developed nations are rarely exposed to wildlife or animals beyond domestic pets. This, of course, doesn’t mean that they aren’t around us, but rather that their relative invisibility makes them easy to forget about — out of sight, out of mind. Yet as our demand for land increases, their habitats become increasingly threatened, and now, more than ever, we are seeing them occupy ‘our’ spaces once more because they simply have nowhere else to go. In Toronto there is a raccoon crisis, for example, and in Mumbai, it’s leopards. Our relationship with animals often falls under two categories: companions or ... Read More

How Your Favourite Chocolate Bars Are Contributing To Illegal Deforestation

Our love for chocolate is undeniably high, meaning that the demand for cocoa beans is continuously increasing. Chocolate companies make a lot of money off this industry — an estimated $100 billion annually to be precise — and this number is only expected to rise. Trust me, I get it. I’ll be the first to admit that I love chocolate and eat it regularly. But, our obsession with this bitter yet sweet treat comes at a cost, one that’s far more detrimental than you may think. Our love affair with chocolate is seriously damaging the environment, contributing to deforestation and endangering species ... Read More

‘Big, bad wolf’ image flawed – scientists

A Buddhist Teacher’s Response To Donald Trump Being The President of The United States

Trump’s presidential win left many people feeling let down by their fellow citizens. It came as a big surprise, particularly to many of the women of America, who saw a clear betrayal in the fact that not only did a woman not win the election, she was beat out by a someone who is perceived as a sexist womanizer. Aside from that aspect, I think most people were just left in shock. How could this man have become president? At the beginning many people, myself included, thought this whole thing was a practical joke at best. Toward the end, I was thinking that he was put there ... Read More

Studies Show Humans Can Communicate Telepathically With Anothe While They’re Dreaming

*This is a re-post article, by us, from 2014 with a few new updates. Dream telepathy suggests that human beings have the ability to communicate telepathically with another person while they are dreaming. And this isn’t a new concept, as scientific interest in telepathy dates back to the fathers of the psychoanalytic movement. Freud, for example, looked at the implications of telepathy on psychoanalytic thought. He also considered dream telepathy, or the telepathic influence of thought on dreaming, on multiple occasions. Carl Jung believed in the telepathic hypothesis without question, and even developed a theoretical system to explain “paranormal” events of this ... Read More

Argentine, Chilean & British Governments Witness Three UFOs Hovering For Two Hours

The third director of the post-World War II United States Central Intelligence Group (CIG), the third director of Central Intelligence (DCI), and the very first director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, once told the world, via the New York Times in 1960,  that, “behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs,” and that, “through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” The key words are here are “official secrecy and ridicule,” which is why, for so many years, you were perceived as a ...

Trump Administration Declines Giving 25 Species “Endangered” Status

It’s difficult to understand how anyone could oppose the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Created to protect vulnerable plant and animal species, it’s a small price to pay to save lives and preserve the delicate balance of our ecosystem. Yet the U.S. government has made numerous attempts to dismantle the Endangered Species Act or prevent animals from reaching the “endangered” status when they rightfully deserve to be protected. Last month, multiple bills were proposed that seriously threatened the Endangered Species Act. You can read more about that in our CE article here. Now, another 25 animals were declined the “endangered species” status, despite the fact ... Read More

Alibaba Founder Jack Ma Wants You to Relax About the Robot Revolution

As his half-trillion dollar corporation prepares to dive headfirst into the age of artificial employees, Alibaba founder Jack Ma would appreciate it if the millions of potentially displaced workers around the world would set aside what he called “empty worries” about robots. People are getting more worried about the future, about technology replacing humans, eliminating jobs and widening the gap between the rich and the poor. But I think these are empty worries. Technology exists for people. We worry about technology because we lack confidence in ourselves, and imagination for the future. Ma believes that “lack of confidence” and “imagination for ...

Carl Jung Explains Humanity’s Major Transition From The Age of Pisces To Aquarius (Audio)

Astrology is an ancient art and science dating back thousands of years. It appears in many cultures, but as with most ancient wisdom, much of it was and has been concealed and forbidden from public viewing. Secret societies, both those whose hearts are grounded in the good will for all of humanity, and those driven by greed and personal gain, have also used this type of ancient knowledge. From Atlantis to ancient Sumer, Vedic astrology to ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt, many great minds throughout the ages have practiced astrology, and for good reason. Despite its many skeptics, astrology has much to offer. It’s also import ... Read More

Gucci Announces They’re No Longer Selling Fur In 2018… But What About Leather?

It’s official: World renowned Italian fashion brand Gucci will no longer be selling fur products. Set to be implemented by 2018, animal activists are calling the ban a “game changer” in the fashion industry, and it’s no doubt a step in the right direction. Fast fashion has been a significant contributor to animal cruelty for a long time. Wearing fur used to be a necessity in colder climates centuries ago when there were limited or no other alternatives, but at this point it’s simply a fashion statement. We have access to innovative, cheaper materials that can keep us equally if not ... Read More

7 Ways To Naturally Increase Your Mood & Vibrational Frequency

Within the spiritual community, terms like “raise your vibration” and “elevate your frequency” seem to circulate many conscious conversations. These terms can be taken in a literal sense, as you can literally feel when someone has a low vibe, or a dense frequency, as these circumstances usually lend themselves to less than ideal experiences. On the flip side, when you are feeling good, or a situation is really “light” and vibing high, the same ripple effect of consciousness happens within the space you occupy — and the feelings of goodness can be felt by most anyone who is open to ...

DNA study provides insight into how to live longer

Image copyright Getty Images Every year spent in education adds an average of 11 months to people's lifespan, say scientists. The researchers say a person loses two months for every kilogram overweight they are - and seven years for smoking a packet of cigarettes a day. Unusually, the Edinburgh university team found their answers by analysing differences in people's genetic code or DNA. Ultimately they think it will reveal new ways of helping us to live longer. The group used the genetic code of more than 600,000 people who are taking part in a natural, yet massive, experiment.Clearer pictureIf someone ... Read More
