Pamela Meyer: How to spot a liar

On any given day we're lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows the manners and "hotspots" used by those trained to recognize deception -- and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving.

La propriété intellectuelle, par Albert Jacquard

Albert Jacquard démonte le concept de propriété intellectuelle.

Albert Jacquard "rebâtir une société humaine sans compétition"

"L'important est d'arriver à vivre ensemble avec des éthiques différentes, de collaborer les uns avec les autres", nous dit Albert Jacquard, lauréat du Prix de l'Ethique 2009 de La Lettre du Cadre Territorial. Cela suppose qu'il y ait un "corps dur", un diamant central auquel tous les hommes adhère du point de vue de la morale. "Cela peut paraître inaccessible, mais ça ne l'est pas puisque qu'il y a 60 ans, nous avons défini ce qui est bien et mal dans les rapports des humaines entre eux. Appliquer cette déclaration serait déjà un progrès énorme par rapport à la situation actuelle".

"Pour des raisons d'efficacité, regrette-t-il, nos sociétés en pointe ont basé leur recherche d'efficacité sur la compétition. On nous fait croire que l'important dans la vie, c'est de lutter et de gagner. Or pour moi, un gagnant est un fabriquant de perdants. Il faut donc rebâtir une société humaine où la compétition sera éliminée; je n'ai pas à être plus fort que l'autre, j'ai à être plus fort que moi."

Senator Whitehouse’s Must-See Climate Speech: “We Ignore the Laws of Nature of God’s Earth at Our Very Grave Peril”

There are some laws that Congress can change. The laws of nature aren't among them. While lobbyists continue to call for more and more "second" opinions, Sheldon points out to his colleagues that the scientific community is solidly behind the fact that climate change is a real threat.

College Conspiracy

College education is the largest scam in U.S. history!

Chris Hedges: "This one could take them all down."

Chris Hedges: "What happens is in all of these movements ... the foot soldiers of the elite -- the blue uniformed police, the mechanisms of control -- finally don't want to impede the movement and at that point the power elite is left defenseless ... the only thing I can say having been in the middle of similar movements is that this one is real, and this one could take them all down ... I can guarantee you that huge segments of those blue uniformed police sympathize with everything that you're doing." -- Pulitzer Prize winner Chris Hedges brings his 20 years of experience as a war correspondent, having covered movements and revolutions throughout the the world, to the discussion.

2012 - A Message of Hope

Sita Sings the Blues

"Sita Sings the Blues" is based on the Hindu epic "The Ramayana". Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina Paley is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Ramayana. Set to the 1920's jazz vocals of torch singer Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told." It is written, directed, produced and animated by American artist Nina Paley.

For more about the film and about Nina Paley's other work, see

Till Victoria

Matteus 7:1-5

1»Dömen icke, på det att I icke mån bliva dömda; 2 ty med den dom varmed I dömen skolen I bliva dömda, och med det mått som I mäten med skall ock mätas åt eder. 3 Huru kommer det till, att du ser grandet i din broders öga, men icke bliver varse bjälken i ditt eget öga? 4 Eller huru kan du säga till din broder: 'Låt mig taga ut grandet ur ditt öga', du som har en bjälke i ditt eget öga? 5 Du skrymtare, tag först ut bjälken ur ditt eget öga; därefter må du se till, att du kan taga ut grandet ur din broders öga.

Matteus 7:12

Därför, allt vad I viljen att människorna skola göra eder, det skolen I ock göra dem; ty detta är lagen och profeterna.

Lukas 6:31

Såsom I viljen att människorna skola göra mot eder, så skolen I ock göra mot dem.

Romabrevet 13:8

Varen ingen något skyldiga -- utom när det gäller kärlek till varandra; ty den som älskar sin nästa, han har uppfyllt lagen.

Romabrevet 13:10

Kärleken gör intet ont mot nästan; alltså är kärleken lagens uppfyllelse.

Galaterbrevet 5:14

Ty hela lagens uppfyllelse ligger i ett enda budord, nämligen detta: »Du skall älska din nästa såsom dig själv.»

Jakobsbrevet 2:8

Om I, såsom skriften bjuder, fullgören den konungsliga lagen: »Du skall älska din nästa såsom dig själv», då gören I visserligen väl.

Les tribus de l'Omo

Dans la vallée de l'Omo, aux confins de l'Éthiopie et à des siècles de la modernité, vivent de nombreuses tribus d'agriculteurs et d'éleveurs semi-nomades. Pendant six ans, Hans Silvester a photographié ces tribus qui risquent de disparaître. Un projet hydroélectrique, celui de Gilgel Gibe, menace, en effet, la sécurité alimentaire de près d'un demi-million de personnes au Kenya et en Éthiopie. En plus de détruire l'écosystème de la vallée de l'Omo, reconnu internationalement pour sa biodiversité, il aura des effets dévastateurs pour la qualité de vie des populations locales, dont il menace le bien-être et même la survie. Regardez bien ces photos, ce sont peut-être les dernières. Ce montage a été réalisé sur la musique d'Amadou et Mariam (M' bifé balafon en boucle)

Sir David Attenborough reveals the findings of one of the most ambitious scientific studies of our time - an investigation into what is happening to our oceans. He looks at whether it is too late to save their remarkable biodiversity.

Horizon travels from the cold waters of the North Atlantic to the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef to meet the scientists who are transforming our understanding of this unique habitat.
