  • THE GOLDEN RULE OF TAKING OVER / a theory of power/

    THE GOLDEN RULE OF TAKING OVER By Ivan Petryshyn / a theory of power/ So, one wins, and another loses. Morals, philosophy explanations are all good, but are not seen or heard, as the MORAL HUMAN RIGHTS BEINGS are interested in the WINNER, not in a LOSER.  Any Victory is sweet, human or inhuman, fair or unfair, just or unjust- people just pretend they feel compassion- they LOVE ONLY AND EXCLUSIVELY the WINNER. They AVOID A LOSER. And their RELIGION or BELIEFS have nothing to do with that: ASTUTUS ET INIUSTUS VINCET,         like the TERRORIST RUSSIA. Math is a stubborn and impartial thing: if... continue reading...

  • NAKED IN A PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL!

    Naked, in a Public High School!                                    I used to be in an awful habit of sometimes not wearing underwear; I had often thought," I want my 'boys' to move and float freely". Even when purchasing a fine suit of clothing, and asked , by the tailor,"which side I wore it on", I  would reply,"Like a flag in the wind!" However, that fashionless quirk once caused a serious' costume malfunction' that backfired to almost jeopardize my career and my very life! Once, in an English Literature Senior class, as a senior...3 continue reading...

  • What Reading Does for Writers

    How gratifying it is to read a book that grabs your interest from the start and keeps you turning pages. Such books cause you to forget you’re reading; you become fully engaged with the story and characters. The movie in your mind is fluid. No matter the genre, such an experience is pure bliss for readers. This is the experience writers want to create for readers, or should want to create for their readers. However, there’s one vital thing new and “young” writers should keep in mind: writers who achieve this with their books work very, very hard to make writing seem easy. A great deal of effort goes into making this happen. What does this have to...1 continue reading...

  • Two Humors

    AN antique collector named Vince had traveled to a remote countryside hoping to explore around and partly, to try if he could have some luck tripping over some rural folks' junk as in the past, he had made quite a considerable gain out of their ignorance about their valuables or rare pieces of actual great values, but in general, antique collectors are good bargainers apart from being greedy as well. Vince was driving slowly in the unfamiliar road in that humid afternoon and when he saw a row of shops appeared within a short distance,  he suddenly felt hungry. He had to stop to eat something.  It was there that he thought he found what.. continue reading...

  • The Art of Stuart Sutcliffe, the Fifth 'Beatle'

    {All Art Work in this Article is by Stuart Sutcliffe (1940-1962), Photographs of Stuart are by Astrid Kirchherr (b. 1938)} On May 10, 1960, 'the boys' suffered a huge disappointment. Before the audition, they were confident and hopeful, but they didn't win. They didn't even get second place. They had only themselves to blame. First, their drummer didn't show up so they had to quick enlist one.  Then, during the performance their bass guitarist ‘hid behind’ Ray-Ban sunglasses, was stiffly inanimate and turned his back to the audience half the time. The band was very popular in Liverpool, but London talent scout, Larry Parnes, was...1 continue reading...

    Reincarnation- On Earth As It is in Heaven

    "This may be true in theory, but does not apply to my reality." The foregoing is a commonly held opinion in regard to the cycle of human rebirth we call Reincarnation. Is the Christian belief of life in heaven after death a short-cut through the reality of reincarnation? When we grasp the realization that no action on earth follows a natural conclusive end; we may form a theory from this judgment; a theory of rational deduction which needs must have a valid priority from nature itself, which is the default priority of life on earth, and of which Man is the pinnacle result. Priorities are perceived as self-evident deductions formed and...12 continue reading...

  • A Sad Ending to the Hillary Clinton Email Skullduggery Scandal

    First the NYT reporter reports that Omigod Hillary Clinton used a private email account when Secretary of State. Then Jeb Bush is morally outraged and vituperously expressive of his disgust at the Security Risk Clinton exposed the country to. And the GOP girds its loins to take Clinton down once and for all because she clearly Can. Not. Be. Trusted. To run a country the way we can. Then the Bhenghazi dogs start slavering, relieved—in their secret little heart of hearts—that they can turn their attention to something other than digging through imaginary dirt piles in search of imaginary evidence to prove Hillary Clinton guilty of something she isn’t..5 continue reading...

  • How to Grow and Use Lemongrass

    This week’s email question asks, “Can you tell me anything about Lemongrass, such as how to grow it and use it?” Lemongrass is a fragrant perennial plant that thrives in warm climates and offers a lemony flavoring to dishes.
