GINGER MEN

DO YOU THINK THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS A HATE GROUP?

The following is a WE THE PEOPLE petition on the White House website demanding that the Catholic Church be recognized as a hate group. Sine Dec. 25, 2012 over 2,000 people have signed it, 25,000 signatures are needed. If you want to sign the petition click HERE.

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Officially recognize the Roman Catholic Church as a hate group.

In his annual Christmas address to the College of Cardinals, Pope Benedict XVI, the global leader of the Roman Catholic Church, demeaned and belittled homosexual people around the world. Using hateful language and discriminatory remarks, the Pope painted a portrait in which gay people are second-class global citizens. Pope Benedict said that gay people starting families are threatening to society, and that gay parents objectify and take away the dignity of children. The Pope also implied that gay families are sub-human, as they are not dignified in the eyes of God.
Upon these remarks, the Roman Catholic Church fits the definition of a hate group as defined by both the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League.
Created: Dec 25, 2012

$10 LIGHT AND POWER SOURCE POWERED BY GRAVITY


I saw this over on Bucko's World (a great blog you should visit) and had to share it. They should sell this devise in the US as well as it would be perfect for Storm Kits, camping, boating and many other things that I can't think of but others would. I'd buy at least 10 especially since they could be used to recharge cell phones and batteries.
Kerosene lamps used in off-grid, rural areas are a major problem. They're bad for people's health and the environment's. One startup's solution is to tap another, greener resource, something we all have in abundance: gravity.
The invention, GravityLight, does exactly what the name suggests: It keeps a light going through the power of gravity. As an attached weight falls, it pulls a cord through the center of the light, powering a dynamo. That dynamo converts the energy from the falling weight into power for the light. (It's the same idea as a hand-cranked device, just more vertical.) The weight can be set in a few seconds, and as it slowly reaches Earth, enough energy is generated to keep a light working for 30 minutes. As long as it's set every 30 minutes, it makes for a green, battery-free, continuous stream of light. Other, similar devices like battery chargers could be used through the same process, too.
The inventors say the gadgets can be sold now for less than $10, which would make a return on investment for owners three months after dumping kerosene lighting. And speaking of investments, the group has already shattered the goal for its Indiegogocampaign, meaning we'll hopefully see these in action soon.
