Vioxx maker Merck and Co drew up a doctor 'hit list',27753,25273468-462,00.html

AN international drug company made a hit list of doctors who had to be "neutralised" or discredited because they criticised the anti-arthritis drug the pharmaceutical giant produced.

Staff at US company Merck & Co emailed each other about the list of doctors - mainly researchers and academics - who had been negative about the drug Vioxx or Merck and a recommended course of action.

The email,… Continue

A very sad story from my youth . . .

I have a very sad tale about my youth. There used to be a very ancient man who stood in the entrance of the local Drug Store in our, very Christian, small town, who kept complaining to all and everyone that, "Did your stomach ever just burn?" My Mother thought he was just hilarious, until she told me about it. I, being the only one with any Buddhist background in the town, asked her why no one would actually go into the Drug Store and get him something for what evidently was an ulcer---which… Continue

Mind-reading robot a step closer,28348,25271450-5014239,00.html

OPENING a car boot or controlling a home air conditioner could become just a wish away with Honda's new technology that connects thoughts inside a brain with robotics.

Honda Motor Co. has developed a way to read patterns of electric currents on a person's scalp as well as changes in cerebral blood flow when a person thinks about four simple movements - moving the right hand, moving the left hand, running… Continue

Theosophical Wanderings

At times I will share passages from literature, philosophy, poetry, lyrics, etc that have both moved and sustained me. While many of the authors may not be from the recognized theosophical literature I believe they are theosophical in nature none-the-less. I also believe that the authors I bring here do their best work when I stay out of there way as much as possible. Other readers are encouraged to share as well.

Honesty, authenticity and truth... harder than it sounds

Speaking the truth is one of the spiritual values that is traditional. I think perhaps that it's repeated so often in Buddhist and other religious literature, because it is such a very hard thing to practice.

Theosophy Today-Daily Life

Hoping that all members will be able to get away from the in-the-brain theosophy to a point of sharing what we do in the real world that has theosophical meaning. Some theosophists forget to go out in the real world and be theosophy. I hope that people will share here theosophy in their lives. From dealing with the fundamentalists on the doorstep, to standing in line at the grocery store, we create a nucleus of universal brotherhood either consciously or unconsciously. I hope that we can use… Continue
