Do not be fooled.

The Canadian Tar Sands (Northern Alberta)

There are currently many wealthy and powerful sources providing misleading information about the Alberta Tar Sands — these include The Harper Government (as our Canadian prime minister insists the media now refer to the elected Canadian Government), “Big Oil” along with those who profit from oil production, and the well-funded lobby in the USA promoting the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

To learn important truths about the Tar Sands, please watch this objective two-hour documentary by David Suzuki:

The first colour wheel…

.

English entomologist and engraver Moses Harris (1730-1788) devised the first full-colour wheel in 1766, creating the foundation of modern colour theory.

“The 18 colours of his wheel were derived from what he then called the three ‘primitive’ colours: red, yellow and blue. At the center of the wheel, Harris showed that black is formed by the superimposition of these colours.”

Thanks Moses. (source)

You can never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, for no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is the one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.

Sitting Bull (1831-1890)
