Day 48: Locking it Down with CPM (social distancing)

Cook Plant Meditate

At CPM we are loving social distancing! Maybe we’re a little crazy, but hear us out:

Social distancing is our favorite. We would like people to stand 6 feet away in perpetuity. We do not mind waiting outside Costco for a few minutes, because once you get inside, it’s not overly crowded. There is no long checkout line. No one asks you if you want a credit card, solar panels or DirecTV. People don’t bring their entire family. There is no social hour by the books. There aren’t hordes of people blocking aisles waiting for a tiny piece of frozen pizza (there is also no wanton waste associated with handing out millions of samples every day).

Ever stood in a line when a person behind you is clearly sick but stands 12 inches away? Or someone came to work sick and coughed all over your workstation, and then you got…

Astrology | Mercury Conjunct Uranus in Taurus

Urania Rules

For the next few days Mercury took over the domestic duties around Venus’s house as her servants were nowhere to be found, and she busied herself wading in the spring for gold or hammering away in her workshop. In the evenings she would sit by the fireplace and polish her latest piece while he tidied up the kitchen, singing songs he had written for her- making sure to use words she could taste, smell and touch. One night, Mercury was longing for some disruption from their pleasant but quiet routine. He wiped his hands on his adopted apron and produced a gift for Venus, hoping it would remind his love of her desire for him. Venus took the tortoise-shell hand mirror from her friend and smiled at its beautiful craftsmanship. She thanked him but didn’t hold it up to her face to admire her divine beauty. Instead she put it…

gambhīra — deep, profound, unfathomable, well founded, hard to perceive

Yo na hanti na ghāteti,
na jināti na jāpaye,
mettaṃso sabbabhūtānaṃ,
veraṃ tassa na kenacī.

One who does not strike nor makes others strike,
who robs not nor makes others rob,
sharing love with all that live,
finds enmity with none.

Itivuttaka 1.27
Gemstones of the Good Dhamma, compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika

Meditation Moment …

Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.

Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.

Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his.

Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons.

Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed he was not a Warrior of the Light.

Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.

Every Warrior of the Light has said ‘yes’ when he wanted to say ‘no.’

Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone he loved.

That is why he is a Warrior of the Light, because he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than he is.

La’au Lapa’au | Bacopa: Therapeutic Potential for Alzheimer’s Disease?

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

In Ayurvedic medicine, bacopa (Bacopa monnieri, Plantaginaceae) is called brahmi and used as a brain tonic to enhance cognitive function and prevent memory loss. Bacopa monnieri extract (BME) has antioxidant and neuroprotective properties and, in clinical studies, has been found to improve aspects of cognitive function and memory in both healthy participants and patients with cognitive impairments.

Various formulations of BME were used in the studies reviewed by the authors.

Current Events | Is Bill Gates evil?

In reality, Microsoft didn’t invent any of the code or hardware innovations underlying windows and office and related products.

Here’s some good copy pasta: The Truth about Bill Gates and why most of the super wealthy dont earn their money.

Check this perspective out:  https://www.quora.com/Is-Bill-Gates-evil

Bill Gates is a thief and robber baron on a massive scale not seen since the late 1800s. He didn’t actually invent “any” of the technologies you are referring to … almost all of those technologies existed decades before Microsoft was founded. The underlying structure of Windows and all related Microsoft products was invented by US universities using public (government-provided) funds; or by IBM; or by Xerox in their Palo Alto Research Center (also known as Xerox PARC).

What Bill Gates “did” do, is incorporate those technologies into software his company made – and then took advantage of general computer illiteracy to hoodwink the US Patent Office into approving patents for his products. Although others had built operating system before Gates, using the same underlying technologies, no one else tried to patent those technologies before because it’s not legal to copyright publicly-funded work performed at universities.

He then sued every one of his competitors, using funds leveraged by borrowing from his VERY rich parents (No Bill Gates is not a rags-to-riches success story in any way. He was born extremely wealthy and would have died super-rich even if he never earned a penny on his own.); or else obtained by other means that many courts have repeatedly determined to be fraudulent.

He literally out-lawyered and out-spent smaller competitors – most of whom had legitimate claims to their intellectual property that he simply stole by incorporating it into his own products without any acknowledgement or payment – until they went out of business because of the cost of legal battles.

He then entered into a partnership with IBM to build PC’s for them… and stole the computer code and related technologies IBM built for the “OS/1” and “OS/2” products. He then entered into a partnership with NeXt Computing and did the same thing to them – Microsoft’s lawyers are the primary reason NeXt went out of business, even though NeXt built much better products than anyone else at the time (including the first color GUI and first integration with the mouse for commercial use). He stole most of the code for Office products by copyrighting work of US universities or much-smaller commercial competitors; and then suing those same universities or business competitors until they gave up their patents or granted nearly-free licensing rights to Microsoft (universities); or went out of business (smaller competitors).

In reality, Microsoft didn’t invent any of the code or hardware innovations underlying windows and office and related products.

For example: The mouse was invented as a taxpayer funded research project in 1962 while Bill Gates was still in elementary school.

Plug-and-play hardware & software was invented in 1969 while Gates was still in high school.

The base code for the windows operating system graphical interface (GUI) was invented in 1970, several years before Microsoft came into being as a company.

Colorized GUIs with fully integrated keyboard, mouse, plug-in play hardware, and portable CPU and screen – were invented in 1974. This was before Microsoft came into being as a company, while Gates was still a college sophomore.

Email software was invented in the mid-1960s. HTML was invented in the late 1960s. GUI email software was invented in the early 1970s. GUI spreadsheet software was invented in the mid-1970s. Etc, etc… all well before Microsoft was formed as a company, mostly while Bill Gates was still in elementary or high school.

What you may not be aware of is that Bill Gates owns many media companies and multiple news outlets. Gates spent a very large fortune planting old-media and internet news stories touting his genius and philanthropy. The sum total of all Bm Gates’ charitable contributions amount to less than 2.3% of his enormous wealth.

There’s a gold-plated train to hell reserved for people like Bill Gates.

Homeopathy | A Safe Bug Spray That Really Works: Natural Mosquito Repellent

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Summer is prime time for enjoying the outdoors. But more often than not, there’s a dark cloud hanging over that backyard barbecue: bugs – and especially mosquitoes. These blood-seeking fun busters expertly follow their senses right to your skin. But if you can repel them with one quick application of bug spray, then what’s the problem? It turns out that many old-fashioned bug sprays contain neurotoxic ingredients that may increase cancer risk. But, worry not – there are plenty of nontoxic essential oil blends that repel the bugs, without the bite to your health.

Why Should We Use Natural Mosquito Repellent?

Mosquito bites are not just annoying. They can also transmit diseases such as malaria, Zika, and dengue fever, among others. So, it’s important to guard against them. Mosquitoes are guided by their sense of smell, which is equipped with hundreds of odor-receptor proteins, and they’re attracted to the carbon dioxide we…
