Mankind is at a crossroads defined by two opposing paradigms. Either continue to hold onto the traditions of oligarchism which has defined our struggle for existence based upon a rule of the jungle “each against all” outlook for far too long, or embrace our higher nature as a species of creative reason whose purpose and values are not looked for in “how we feel about ourselves in the present” but rather what we create and leave behind for future generations to build ever more upon.

A team of scientists in Denmark just invented a crystalline material that can absorb oxygen with astounding efficiency. How astounding? Well, a single spoonful of the stuff can suck all of the oxygen out of a room. The best part is that it can release it again with just a little bit of heat. Say goodbye to bulky oxygen tanks.
“The material can absorb and release oxygen many times without losing the ability. It is like dipping a sponge in water, squeezing the water out of it and repeating the process over and over again,” says Professor Christine McKenzie who led the research.
“When the substance is saturated with oxygen, it can be compared to an oxygen tank, containing pure oxygen under pressure. The difference is that this material can hold three times as much oxygen.”
Mark Lombardi (March 23, 1951 – March 22, 2000) was an AmericanNeo-Conceptualist and an abstractartist who specialized in drawings attempting to document financial and political frauds by power brokers, and in general “the uses and abuses of power.
In Lombardi’s historical diagrams, each node or connection was drawn from news stories from reputable media organizations, and his drawings document the purported financial and political frauds by power brokers. For instance, his 1999 drawing George W. Bush, Harken Energy and Jackson Stephens, ca 1979–90 shows alleged connections between James Bath, the Bush and bin Laden families, and business deals in Texas and around the world.
The Essence of Lombardi’s Work
The small circles in his drawings identified the main players — individuals, corporations and governments — along a time line. The arcing lines showed personal and professional links, conflicts of interest, malfeasance and fraud.
Solid lines traced influence, dotted lines traced assets and wavy lines traced frozen assets. Final denouements like court judgment, bankruptcy and death were noted in red.
Reading several newspapers a day, he culled his information entirely from published sources, keeping track of the articles with a card file that eventually held over 12,000 cards.
