Falling Fruit – Grassroots Efforts With Open Source Collaboration – Genius!

Food For Free Collaboration Open Source Efforts
Passionate environmentalists Caleb Phillips and Ethan Welty set out to “unite the efforts of foragers, freegans and foresters everywhere,” and came up with a map that points to over half a million food sources around the world.

They created a website that identifies fruit trees and other edible plants that are free for the taking in over 800,000! locations across the world. Entitled Falling Fruit, their website is a collaborative map of the urban harvest.

About the project

Falling Fruit is a celebration of the overlooked culinary bounty of our city streets. By quantifying this resource on an interactive map, we hope to facilitate intimate connections between people, food, and the natural organisms growing in our neighborhoods. Not just a free lunch! Foraging in the 21st century is an opportunity for urban exploration, to fight the scourge of stained sidewalks, and to reconnect with the botanical origins of food.

Israel’s military and domestic intelligence agency wasted no time implementing a decision by the cabinet last Thursday to sharply intensify the crackdown on Palestinian media. Before dawn on Friday, agents from the Shin Bet, accompanied by Israeli soldiers, raided the Ramallah offices of Palestine Today, confiscating the TV station’s equipment before ordering it closed until futher notice. During the raid, the soldiers briefly detained two of the station’s journalists, Muhammad Amro and Shbeib Shbeib.

Brazil’s CIA-Directed Color Revolution: The Back Story

brazilstreetcrowd

TMR Editor’s Note:
The nation of Brazil has been under a multi-front assault ever since they have shown any independence from their North American overlords in Washington, D.C.  The banksters and politicos in New York City, who have always dictated the destiny of Brazil, would not tolerate the current socialist government breaking free from the Anglo-American reservation.

Washington has been particularly aggressive about not letting Brazil, the primary BRICS representative in the Western Hemisphere, exert too much economic or political clout in South America as it sets a very bad example for the rest of the vassal states.  Were Brazil to really break free from their traditional masters in the USA, undoubtedly the rest of the member nations of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States would follow suit.

DRACOREX HOGWARTSIA: Intact Dragon Skull Unearthed in North America

dracorex

Do you believe in dragons? Because if you don’t, there is a really remarkable discovery of a ‘dragon skull’ that has been unearthed by a group of paleontologists a few years ago, and if you can stretch your imagination a little bit and add a pair of wings on top you’ll get an authentic dragon. The fossil remains of a presumed dragon were dug up by three amateur paleontologists back in 2003. The eye-catching skull of this ancient creature together with several neck vertebrates is the best proof we have of dragons that once dwelled on the earth. It was discovered in the Hell Creek formation in Northwest South Dakota, USA, and was furtherly donated to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

Video Proof: BBC, CNN, and FOX News Staged Attacks To Get Us into War

StagedbyBBC

What follows is shocking evidence that crisis actors, green screens, CGI, and paid propagandists are being used to fake worldwide events in order to scare people into giving up liberties and sending us into war.

To say this was shocking would be to put it lightly.
From video proof showing “dead soldiers” killed by “chemical weapons” walking around after they thought the videos stopped recording, to digitally altering sounds to add in “explosions” that never happened, this segment demonstrates some of the most damming evidence against the media ever shown on television.
In this brave segment, it’s shown that CNN, Fox news, MSNBC, BBC are all guilty and need to be exposed and punished.

If You Don’t Warn The People, Their Blood Could Be On Your Hands

postapocolypse

NOTE: At PFC we are not expecting an apocalyptic  event, but rather an awakening that empowers the millions of  people in the resistance movements to redirect our society. Many are not aware of this movement and so conclude the the forces of chaos will succeed. This article is rooted in the wrong assumptions, but does tap into a vein of consciousness of which we should all be aware.  

Why are so few voices warning the people about what is coming?  We stand at the door of a period of change that will be unlike anything that any of us have ever known before.  And even though the signs are all around us, very few individuals appear to be willing to stand up and sound the alarm.  Instead, there seems to be a large number of people that are quite eager to criticize the watchmen.  Earlier today, I was having a conversation with a very prominent voice in the alternative media, and we were reflecting on this.  There are so many individuals out there that love to shoot arrows at those that are sounding the alarm, and yet they are doing so little to make a difference themselves.

Comparison of Native Americans and Palestinians has become increasingly common. Thus arises a corresponding need to assess the problems and prospects of comparative analysis.  Because I teach American Indian and Indigenous Studies in the Arab World, I’ve been thinking frequently about how we might productively engage Natives from spaces of Palestine solidarity.

Everything is energy! We are energy!

earthmoonspace

“We have been all wrong! What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been lowered as to be perceptible to the sense” – Albert Einstein

Everything around us is energy. There is nothing solid, just energy. We are energy, swimming in an Ocean of energy! Everything solid has a low vibration, everything with a high vibration is perceived as energy. The energetic beings are very high vibrational and this is what we will become. Some sooner, other later…but the Creation doesn’t have a clock. Inside the Creation everything happens now: the past, the present and the future, because time isn’t passing away. It simply exists! Both us and the time, are infinite and immortal!

FBI Orders Teachers to Report Students Who Question the Government

FBI Teachers Report Children - Academic Advisory - Explicit Content

New federal guidelines have just been introduced across the country, and what they mandate is quite disturbing to civil libertarians.  The FBI has now instructed high schools across the nation to report students who in any way criticize government policies and what the report phrases as “western corruption.”

by Sott

The FBI is interested in determining — as part of some warped “pre-crime” program — who might become potential future terrorists. The FBI warns in the report that that “anarchist extremists” are no different that ISIS terrorists. They further caution teachers against young people who are poor, as well as immigrants and others who travel to “suspicious” countries. These, they explain, are teens who are more likely to commit terrorism.

Sarah Lazare, writing for AlterNet, notes that:

All Blue-Eyed People Have This One Thing In Common

blueeyesEvery blue-eyed person on the planet is descended from a single European who lived around 6,000 to 10,000 years ago, and who first developed a specific mutation that accounts for the now widespread iris coloration.

by Ben Taub,
iflscience

Originally, all humans had brown eyes, although genetic variation relating to a gene called OCA2 resulted in changes to the amount of pigment produced by different individuals, resulting in the emergence of different shades of brown. Armed with this information, scientists had for many years searched for the source of blue eyes on the OCA2 gene, but without success.
