The movie that will change your attitude about fuel forever.

PUMP features experts like John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil Co.; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, Inc.; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views
and knowledge.
 Alcohol fuels can be made from a variety of “feedstocks,” including corn, sugar beets, the Opuntia cactus, yard waste and garbage.
 In 2013, 1.15 million gallons of crude oil spilled from tanker cars on U.S. railroads. That’s 350,000 more barrels than spilled in accidents in the previous 38 years.
 The United States produces about 11 million barrels of oil and oil products a day. But it consumes about 19 million barrels a day.
 Since World War II, 10 of the 11 official U.S. recessions were preceded by a spike in the price of oil. The exception was 1960. – See more at: https://www.pumpthemovie.com/?photosandvideos#sthash.MHzBViSI.dpuf
 About half of air pollution in the U.S. is attributed to transportation, worsening health problems like asthma, heart disease and cancer.
 There are about 253 million cars and trucks on the road in the U.S. By comparison, about 170,000 plug-in electric vehicles have been sold domestically, .07 percent of the total.
 During the 1970s oil shortage, triggered by an OPEC embargo, drivers were forced to wait hours in line at stations. The price of gas went from 38.5 cents a gallon in May 1973 to 55.1 cents in June 1974.
 The U.S. military spends between $86 billion and $104 billion each year protecting oil supply from the Persian Gulf. That’s one-seventh of the Pentagon’s annual budget.
 On July 11, 2008, the price of crude hit $147 a barrel, the highest price in world history. Two months later, the Dow fell 777 points in a day.
In the 1930s and ’40s, networks of electric streetcars and trains were dismantled all over the country and replaced with fuel-guzzling city buses. Many trolley cars were discarded or publicly set ablaze, like this one. Eventually, it came to light that several companies, including Standard Oil of California, Firestone and GM, colluded to buy up and destroy the lines to promote auto travel.
Now we need to expand the best feedstocks in the most carbon free environments.. Energy Beets throughout the whole western states. Using BLM unused graze lands

In Theaters This September.

How To Stop Unwanted Telemarketer Calls
 

If you are like many people you are getting calls from telemarketers at home and at work, but mostly at home.

And if you run a business at home, it makes it very difficult if you receive these calls while you are busy working. Not only do these calls interrupt your workflow but cause loss of time.

So what are some of the best ways to reduce telemarketing calls.

Many people ask what are they trying to sell, it varies, from research companies carpet cleaning, we have heard so many different.

A call to your phone company is also probably a good idea and document all the calls, trying to collect as much as you can from the caller, may require some time, but  if you find out, you can then contact the company who hired them.

Many clues as to the caller being a telemarketer are visible when the call comes in, from the caller ID being suspect.

Most of the time when you answer the call there will be silence, and when you say something that triggers the system to transfer to a person who then starts their pitch.

The FTC receives in the neighborhood of 200,000 complaints each month on telemarketers.  What is the FTC doing about this?

You can contact your elected representatives and ask then what they are doing as well.  Doing nothing about this is not an option, as the problem is getting worse, not better. You can try to call the AT&T Corporate offices, such as the office of the president.

ABC has a story on stopping telemarketers.

Victim of phone fraud? Rep. Grace Meng’s legislation on spoofing passes House

Complaints to the Better Business Bureau(BBB), using automated calling platforms.

So what are there exemptions? There are exemptions for certain kinds of telemarketers:

• Charities seeking donations;

• Politicians seeking your vote;

• Companies with which you have an existing business relationship;

• Survey companies doing opinion polls.

Why do these companies continue to use these tactics? Because they apparently work, we fall prey to their tactics, and it is especially sad to see the elderly falling victim.

Why would anyone have someone come clean their carpets who they do not know.

Make annoying telemarketers stop calling: Tell them they’re calling a business (if they call again, sue!).

Tell telemarketers and solicitors that your under 18 and can’t buy their product yet and they stop calling.

You can tell telemarketers to stop calling. Sign up for the National Do Not Call Registry:

DON’T GET REALLY ANGRY

“Remember, the computer chose your lead, not the caller. If you scream at them because you’ve been called before, this will not make them sympathetic to your case. It’s likely they’ll just put you back into the lead pool to torture you.”

The most efficient response is to say: “Please put me on your do not call list.” in a calm voice and hang up.

Some may want to put a little more effort into tracking down the people behind the calls, the problem is that there are so many ways the calls originate, and once your number is on a lists and there are thousands of lists, and with so many unscrupulous telemarketers, who ignore the FTC Do Not Call Registry.

Remember you can also file a complaint. There hundreds of thousands of complaints filed monthly, at some point the FCC, FTC and government officials will have to do something, this is again a situation where the technology used by the perpetrators is more advanced than the technology to stop the calls.

Things to collect from calls:

date/Time, caller id, number, callers name, company being represented, call back number if given.

Perhaps if there was a device you could use where pushing a button would play recording for the caller. There are some devices:

Many people believe that the calls made cannot be traced, although most consumers have no way to trace a calls made by unscrupulous telemarketers, filing complaints and notating the time calls are made, as companies like AT&T are able to trace calls, especially when a subpoena is served.

Recent scams include

1. calls from individuals claiming to be from the IRS, threatening prosecution to collect on a debt.

2. calls regarding your computer being infected with a virus, and the caller requesting access to your computer, I have heard several people have fallen for this

McDonald’s USA Perks Up The Nation With Free Coffee
 

McDonald’s USA Perks Up The Nation With Free Coffee

Second national McCafé free coffee event kicks off on Sept. 16 and culminates on National Coffee Day, Sept. 29

OAK BROOK, Ill. – Sept. 8, 2014McDonald’s today announced a second national Free Coffee Event, an opportunity for even more coffee lovers to enjoy a freshly brewed, rich and smooth tasting McCafé coffee.

From Sept. 16 through 29, guests can get a free small McCafé coffee during breakfast hours at participating McDonald’s restaurants across the country. This event builds on McDonald’s first-ever Free Coffee Event launched in March, when the company gave away millions of cups of free coffee during the two-week period.

“We know our guests are busy, especially during the morning, and a free cup of coffee goes a long way in helping get their days started,” said Greg Watson, senior vice president, McDonald’s US Menu Innovation.  “That’s why we want to treat customers once again so they can taste for themselves just how great their mornings can be with a cup of McCafé coffee and freshly made breakfast.”

To celebrate two additional weeks of free coffee, McDonald’s is calling on people across the nation to “sip and tell” their embarrassing pre-coffee moments on social media with @McCafe using the hashtag #SipandTell. Select social media fans with morning mishap stories like missing the last train to work on Monday or leaving the house with mismatched shoes will be surprised by @McCafe with custom gifts and experiences to help start their morning off right.

McDonald’s first launched its McCafé line in the U.S. in 2009. The collection included McCafé signature blend coffee and quickly expanded to include iced coffees, espresso-based drinks, such as lattes and mochas, blended-ice beverages including smoothies and frappes as well as limited-time seasonal offerings.  This holiday season, customers can again enjoy the White Chocolate Mocha, in addition to the new White Chocolate Latte and Hot Chocolate, for a limited-time.

McCafé fans will soon be able to enjoy their coffee whenever they want, including at home. McDonald’s recently announced a collaboration with Kraft Foods Group, Inc. to offer a variety of McCafé ground, whole bean and single cup coffees in grocery stores and other retailers nationwide starting in early 2015.

Psychedelic science: From 60s counterculture to modern medicine? @kpcc

Psychedelic science: From 60s counterculture to modern medicine?

KPCC’s Crawford Family Forum

Map & Directions

Monday, September 15

6:30pm – Doors Open; 7:00pm – Program

“Psychedelic science: From 60s counterculture to modern medicine?” tomorrow evening (Monday, September 15, 2014) at KPCC’s Crawford Family Forum.

They were a 1960s counterculture phenomenon, and now they’re making a bid to become part of mainstream medicine. Research into the therapeutic potential of illegal “psychedelic” drugs to treat an assortment of mental health conditions is undergoing a modern-day renaissance. A host of published studies in the field is showing promise for psychedelics, such as psilocybin — the active ingredient in “magic mushrooms” —  to help treat alcoholism, depression, drug addiction and severe anxiety caused by serious or terminal illness. Other studies are finding that MDMA, an ingredient in the party-drug “ecstasy,” may be valuable in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). But is using these drugs good health care policy? From the 1950s through the early 70s, extensive research was done on these drugs. But the excesses of the 60s, when many followed Timothy Leary’s advice to “turn on, tune in, drop out,” sparked a backlash that led the federal government to criminalize psychedelic drugs in 1970. Join KPCC Health Care Correspondent Stephanie O’Neill as she explores the issues with scientists who believe psychedelics can be effective treatments.

Moderator:
Stephanie O’Neill: health care correspondent for KPCC/Southern California Public Radio

Guests:
Charles Grob M.D.: chief of Child Psychiatry and professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine

David E. Nichols Ph.Dpresident, co-founder and director of Preclinical Research, Heffter Research Institute; emeritus professor of Pharmacology, Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Purdue University

ISIS Kills David Cawthorne Haines, a British Security Manager Video (Not Confirmed)
 

The man allegedly killed by ISIS was David Cawthorne Haines, a British security manager

The British terrorist of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant beheaded his 3rd victim in front of the camera: This time, a British citizen named David Cawthorne Haines.

Haines is believed to have been a security manager in South Sudan with the organization Nonviolent Peaceforce. From February to August 2012, Haines worked for the group whose mission “is to promote, develop and implement unarmed civilian peacekeeping as a tool for reducing violence and protecting civilians in situations of violent conflict.”

ISIL has also threatened to execute another British citizen, Alan Henning, next time!

*Some violent parts of this video, including the execution scene have been edited out to make this video viewable to the public for informative purposes.
Also, due to respect to the family of David and his memory, the full speech of the British victim made under pressure and by terrorists’ force is not included in this version of the video.

The video is unconfirmed.

Are You Ready to ‘Disrupt’? Climate Movement Readies Global Mobilization

In less than two weeks, the ‘Climate People’s March & Mobilization’ is set to make its mark on history. A new film explains helps explain where movement came from and where it’s going.

A still image from the film, Disruption, which seeks to galvanize the global justice movement at just the right moment. (Credit: watchdisruption.com)

As Jamie Henn, a co-founder of 350.org—which is leading the organizing effort for the march and also produced the film—said to his organization’s members in an email:

Here’s the most exciting part of this story: it’s not finished yet. The next act will be written in the streets on September 21st, when the People’s Climate March takes over New York (and cities across the globe).

This is the history we’ll tell the next generation — about the end of fossil fuels, about how the world was in crisis, about how we started to turn it around together.
