NEW LINKS (November 2005 - Sorry about the delay in updates...  We are still here)

Active Denial System
"...a non-lethal, counter-personnel directed energy weapon. It uses breakthrough technologies to provide un-precedented, standoff, non-lethal capabilities at ranges beyond effective small arms range. ADS projects a focused, speed-of-light milli-meter-wave energy beam to induce an intolerable heating sensation on an adversaryís skin and cause that individual to be repelled without injury. The picture on the right depicts the prototype currently in development. ADS will enable U.S. forces to stop, deter and turn back an advancing adversary without applying lethal force."

Banned Books Week
"...celebrating the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one's opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them."

Be A Witness
"...Genocide is the ultimate crime against humanity. And a government-backed genocide is unfolding in the Darfur region of the Sudan. As the horror in Darfur continues, our major television news networks are largely missing in action. During June 2005, CNN, FOXNews, NBC/MSNBC, ABC, and CBS ran 50 times as many stories about Michael Jackson and 12 times as many stories about Tom Cruise as they did about the genocide in Darfur. Whether it is coverage of the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s, the Ethiopian famine in the 1980s, or recent coverage of the tsunami, television news can help stop grave injustices and end human suffering."

Center On Conscience & War
" to defend and extend the rights of conscientious objectors. The Center is committed to supporting all those who question participation in war, whether they are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, documented or undocumented immigrants--or citizens in other countries."

Do Not Drill
"...The US government is very close to allowing drilling in one of the most pristine arctic wildlife refuges on earth.  Let the Prime Minister's office know you're against it.  We must tell our government to act now and send Washington the message that drilling in this refuge is wrong.."

Dread Weapon System
"...Imagine a gun with no recoil, no sound, no heat, no gunpowder, no visible firing signature (muzzle flash), and no stoppages or jams of any kind. Now imagine that this gun could fire .308 caliber and .50 caliber metal projectiles accurately at up to 8,000 fps (feet-per-second), featured an infinitely variable/programmable cyclic rate-of-fire (as high as 120,000 rounds-per-minute), and were capable of laying down a 360-degree field of fire?"

Eye On Wackenhut
"...Here's why we're keeping such a watchful eye on the Wackenhut Corporation, the second largest private security company in the US, claims that it provides “quality services at the highest professional standards.” But a systematic analysis of public documents, press reports, and surveys of employees paints a different picture where “high road” rhetoric gives way to a “low-road” reality."

Global Echo
" open-publishing platform for news, issues, actions and analysis reporting on grassroots, non-corporate, non-commercial, social justice, environmental and political issues. is dedicated to the open publishing ethos. By aping the Blogg and Bulletin board phenomenon of informal speech GlobalEcho hopes to create a medium of diverse/contradictory opinion and analysis."

Good Drugs Guide
" intended as non-biased on-line reference guide, an 'Encarta' for recreational drugs. An easy to read, entertaining, intensely-researched and accurate information resource for those interested in, worried about, or experimenting with recreational drugs."

Life After The Oil Crash
"...Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, and investment bankers in the world.  Once the peak is passed, oil production begins to go down while cost begins to go up."

Media Matters
" research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.  ...systematically monitors a cross section of print, broadcast, cable, radio, and Internet media outlets for conservative misinformation -- news or commentary that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the conservative agenda -- every day, in real time."

Millions More Movement
"...There is no better time; there is no more historic occasion than the 10th Anniversary Commemoration of the historic Million Man March to mobilize and organize our people nationally, and, put systems in place that will permit a successful programmatic thrust to bring to fruition what we envision for ourselves and our people."

Peak Oil: Life After The Oil Crash
"...Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, and investment bankers in the world."

Positive Atheism
"...For Those Seeking to Initiate or Invigorate Their Awareness of Their Own Freedom from Superstition and Theistic Faith..."

" the pursuit of ways of life running counter to the development of technology, its alienating antecedents, and the ensemble of changes wrought by both. This site is an exploration into primitivist theory, as well as various works that contribute to an understanding of the tendency."

Schaeffer, Pierre
"... Photography, whether the fact be denied or admitted, has completely upset music..for all that, traditional music is not denied; any more than theater is supplanted by the cinema. Something new has been added, a new art of sound. Am I wrong in calling it music?"

Service Employees Internatioanal Union
"... is 1.8 million working people and 50,000 retirees united to improve services and our communities throughout North America. SEIU members are winning better wages, health care, and more secure jobs at home, while uniting their strength with their counterparts around the world to help ensure that workers, not just corporations and CEOs, benefit from today’s global economy."

Singularity Institute For Artificial Intelligence
"...Sometime in the next few years or decades, humanity will become capable of surpassing the upper limit on intelligence that has held since the rise of the human species. We will become capable of technologically creating smarter-than-human intelligence, perhaps through enhancement of the human brain, direct links between computers and the brain, or Artificial Intelligence."

Skeptic's Annotated Bible
"... offers [highlighted] passages from the Bible  that are an embarrassment to the Bible-believer, and the parts of the Bible that are never read in any Church, Bible study group, or Sunday School class are emphasized. For it is these passages that test the claims of the Bible-believer. The contradictions and false prophecies show that the Bible is not inerrant; the cruelties, injustices, and insults to women, that it is neither good nor just."

This Is Not Over
"... So, in case you missed it: Bush won. Now what do we do? This Is Not is a great place to start -- to look for links to helpful organizations, to read up on the issues that interest you and find out how you can effect change in your area, to write us and ask about resources, to figure out what the hell Dennis Hastert actually does."

United For Peace & Justice
"... is a coalition of more than 1300 local and national groups throughout the United States who have joined together to protest the immoral and disastrous Iraq War and oppose our government's policy of permanent warfare and empire-building."
