A secret history
Today there would be no software, no binary computing, accounting or the sciences if there was no zero and the Indian numericals all modern science and technology is based on.
This includes the branches of Math : arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, conics, astronomy, calculus, etc.
Ancient Hindus deviced an amazing system of math codes using syllables and then creating sutras [aphorisms] & mantras [chants] with that that gave a student instant idea of the mathematical applications.
This sutra is endowed with spiritual content as well as mathematical significance: gopi bhagya madhuvrta, srngiso dadhi sandhiga, khla jivita khatva, gala hala rasandara It translates: O Lord anointed with the yogurt of the milkmaids’ worship, O saviour of the fallen,

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

The modern spread of Islam
The future of all European women under Islam
For most people in this world, one of the most common dreams is for peace, happiness and prosperity. This applies to atheists, pagans and peoples of all religions and beliefs. Unfortunately a large percentage of our global population believes that peace, happiness and prosperity will only occur when everyone else conforms to their beliefs.
Beliefs regarding democracy and aspects of socialism have in fact created a reasonably stable order and conditions for people to live out their dreams and fantasies, but unfortunately many of these dreams and fantasies have come at other people’s expense.
For the Christians to be happy, everyone in the world must

The spread of Islam in Persia
Before Islam empowered them, the Arabs were the most disliked of all peoples. But Islam, a psychological state of believing that one is right and that one can only feel self worth when everyone conforms to one’s beliefs sent them to get revenge by conquering the world.
The Muslim conquest of Persia or the Arab conquest of Iran, led to the end of the Sasanian Empire in the year 651 and the eventual decline of the Zoroastrian religion.
The success of Muslim invaders coincided with significant political, social, economic and military weaknesses in Persia that had been a major world power. The Sasanian Empire had exhausted its human and material resources after

And British poverty
They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery…….if you had to do this to survive you were “Piss Poor”
But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot……they “didn’t have a pot to piss in” & were the lowest of the low
The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn’t just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:
Most people got married in June because they took their

A land on fire and the world fans the flames
The world looks on at a loss to understand what is going on. People collect around various opinions as Israel finds itself being attacked from all sides. So how do we find a real perspective and it is there any such thing as justice in a region that has never known peace since the arrival of humans?
It could well be that the original Jews were a Hindu tribe that migrated some 3000 or 4000 years ago, or even further back. After all, Hinduism has been a light to the entire world although for many that’s an inconvenient truth. But it’s clear that those who call themselves Jews

Our ocean guardians
Most whale species have been hunted to the brink of extinction and some hover dangerously close to that brink. The primary products they were killed for was oil, ambergris (used as a fixative for perfumes) food, and some of the bone was also used.
Human beings have this innate or natural inborn ignorance and inflated self-worth that has no basis in reality. We are the perhaps the least significant species living on this planet and we have done the greatest amount of damage and continue to do so.
Most people see wales as big fish that are mostly out of sight and out of mind and when it comes to products, few people care where they come

We are slowly destroying life and ourselves
Plastic pollution poses one of the biggest known threats to the ocean, influencing all ecosystems from beautiful coral reefs to abyssal trenches, eventually accumulating in our own food. It’s time to transition away from single-use plastics and dispose of our waste more sustainably.
There have been many media stories and images of sharks, whales and other species injured and killed by plastic waste, but for a while now, scientists have known that fish are ingesting small pieces of plastic. But it wasn’t clear how much of that was reaching our dinner plate. Ecologist Chelsea Rochman wanted to find out.
Rochman, who spoke at the @montereybayaquarium Sustainable Foods Institute, sampled fish from markets in

The unenlightened welcome death
The majority of the world’s people living far from the front lines have no idea what Islam represents. Since World War II we have been Molly coddled and taken on the mantle of political correctness. All life is value and we are all equal under the law.
In the Muslim countries that have been torn apart by war we are torn up with emotion at their suffering and moved to sympathy. The sympathy runs deep across the political elite who have invited these refugees to reside in their countries. Because they are the elite they can assign taxpayer dollars to refugee care but because they are elite they do not have to have any interaction

The winds of change
In a country of 2.3 billion people where corruption thanks to foreign intervention has long been institutionalised, the government faced a huge challenge. Because many previous governments have for so long has often worked against the interests of the people, a huge black market developed that some say is greater than the officially recognised economy.
This separate economy has for years been a drain on the official economy and is one of the reasons why the welfare of the nation has lagged behind the rest of the world. For people who are honest, those who declare their income and pay their modest amount of tax, this move is being celebrated.
According Indian media websites, this music
