NZ’s Rodent Epidemic

Growing by the day

Mouse population explodes in Australia

Rats and mice have always sought a close relationship with human beings in part because we produce food in bulk and we are somewhat messy. But not only do we leave food lying around for them, we build nice warm and secure shelters for them to live in.

This is unintentional on our part, simply a consequence of our lifestyle that rodents take full advantage of. They have featured significantly in our history in part because of their nuisance value, but more because they carry disease and parasites like fleas that can transmit another level of disease like bubonic plague and other pestilences that can result in the death of

Is Saving Ourselves Possible?

Or avoiding another mass extinction event

The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 to represent how close we are to a global catastrophe. It’s maintained by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board.

The group of scientists, including 16 Nobel Laureates, announced this morning that we have moved dangerously close to all-out disaster. The Clock’s recent advance to two and a half minutes means that scientists and experts agree that we are teetering on the brink of societal collapse or an apocalyptic scale nuclear war, which symbolically occurs at midnight on their scale.

In the years since the Clock was created we have only been this close to midnight once, in 1953 when the

Osho on Sex Ed for Kids

Tell it the way it is

Periodically in the media this week, discussions about sex education for children re-emerge. Those who consider themselves enlightened want to tell kids the facts of life as they really are while the moral opposition wants kids to remain forever in ignorance until that time comes when they fumble in the dark and are left suffering various forms of anxiety.

In terms of statistics, these prove that children who are well educated about sex are more likely to put off sex until they are older and practice safe sex, they are also much less likely to get pregnant so it seems really strange that the moralists want to raise their kids in ignorance and expose

Massage Styles

Massage methods from around the world

Starting a massage

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body and a broader definition may include the manipulation of a person’s energy. However the manipulation of the joints is confined to osteopathy and chiropractic.

Massage is a universal treatment yet around the world people have different approaches because they have different understandings of the human body and how it works.

Massage is also instinctive because when we hurt, we rub the hurt area and we feel better. So every country has it’s own massage style and popular styles have spread around the world to be offered by gifted friends and amateurs, or by trained professionals.

Male Continence

The importance of saving your sperm

John Humphrey Noyes came up with the idea of Male Continence back in the 1840’s as a means of preventing unwanted conception, without injury to either husband or wife and ended up with some 250 people living a communal lifestyle where all men and women of the community were married to each other which stirred up a lot of negative criticism at the time which one would expect as the US is a fairly puritanical country.

However he had a great many enquiries from intelligent men and women in ordinary married life seeking information about Male Continence after seeing and suffering the miseries of involuntary propagation which at the time was remarkable for its

Diet & Lifestyle

Planning for a healthy future

We start our lives in ignorance, and lets face it, many parents are ignorant of what constitutes a good lifestyle, diet and nutrition. That means that as we grow up with a less than ideal diet and lifestyle, we are laying foundations for ill-health and a short life.

As we live our lives in ignorance, it takes some time before some sickness intrudes and reminds us of our mortality. Then we look for a fix, but by then most fixes are best temporary and the only way to make a change permanent is to wake up and make those essential diet and lifestyle changes.

While there are countless diet and weight loss programs,

Healthy Skin requires a healthy body

Neglect may result in your skin looking like a reptiles

How to keep your good looks and prevent sagging, lines and wrinkles.

Our skin from birth is exposed to sun, dirt and grime, and then washed with various combinations of chemicals. It is also susceptible to the process of ageing and after many years can resemble that of a reptile. But there is hope for lovely soft, clear skin, but first lets think about the skin, it’s functions and requirements:

Your Skin is a barrier to keep your insides in, and to keep the outside world out.

The skin is extremely tough and yet sensitive and can heal itself after injury, like the

Milk and Osteoporaosis

Milk Destroys Your Bones From the Inside

Milk and animals as food have been consumed by us for thousands of years. When the livestock are healthy and the people consuming milk and milk products as they have done in India for perhaps tens of thousands of years with the milk is primarily the A2 variety which is further processed before consumption, milk products and the animals that produce them are healthy.

Where we come to the west, the milk is the A1 variety, cows often suffer harsh conditions and a percentage of their diet is made up of agricultural chemicals which is passed on to us through the milk and meat.

In terms of osteoporosis, after

Astral Travelling

You are the light in the body

By Gauri Mataji Devi

Astral Travelling is a process of consciously DETACHING oneself from the gross body and moving on the “astral” or subtle level. It is also called OBE (“out of body experience”).

Astral Travelling is perfectly within the power of each individual. Many people do it unconsciously, sometimes during sleep or in cases of severe suffering or failure of the body system. However, conscious remembrance in the waking state is not the final or only proof of Astral Travelling during sleep/dream, or even a proof that you have indeed had any dreams or not. Everybody dreams, but a very small number of people in specific circumstances actually remember
