In the News: Any situation where someone complains about a problem, rather than act to solve it?

Question by xxOBLIVION: In the News: Any situation where someone complains about a problem, rather than act to solve it?
I need help finding some news, magazine, etc. articles about a real life situation where someone or some people complain about a problem, rather than doing something to solve it. They either start ignoring the problem or rely on other to solve it for them.

It’d be great if it was a deep, tragic story.

I also need an opposite story about when someone does act to solve a problem and something good happens, etc.

Thanks everyone.

Answer by thomas p
Boone Pickens is investing a large amount of money in a wind project in a mid-west corridor. The idea is replace natural gas which meets the standards for a clean fuel by the vast majority of environmental people and generate electricity with wind. With nuclear power to follow to generate more electrical power. The nat gas will go to powering trucks, autos, so-called mobile energy. Pickens has set aside $ 58 million of his own money to advertise his plan which is at PickensPlan.com. T. Boone is an 80 year old man with no need for money and by a recent MRI study find Mr. Pickens has the brain of a 55 year old. He has the only practical plan. I feel his efforts meet your criteria for problem solving in a ocean of negativity.

There was a news special on about teens smoking an herb/flower to get high- what is it?

Question by McKenzieT: There was a news special on about teens smoking an herb/flower to get high- what is it?
My father called me and said on the ABC news the other night there was a special about highschool kids and college kids going to the health food store and buying some type of herb/flower and smoking it to get high. As a concerned parent, I was wondering if anyone knew what it is they are smoking? Apparently, kids have even died from it.

They probably were talking of Salvia Divinorum
…Here is a article about it…..

Drugs and Chemicals of Concern

——————————————————————————–

SALVIA DIVINORUM AND SALVINORIN A

(Street Names: Maria Pastora, Salvia)

January 2007
DEA/OD/ODE

Introduction:

Salvia divinorum is a perennial herb in the mint family native to certain areas of the Sierra Mazateca region of Oaxaca, Mexico. The plant grows in large groupings to over three feet in height. Characteristics of the plant include large green leaves, hollow square stems and white flowers with purple calyces. Salvia divinorum is one of several plants that have been employed by the Mazatec Indians for ritual divination and healing. In recent years the active ingredient of Salvia divinorum has been identified as salvinorin A.

There has been interest among young adults and adolescents to discover ethnobotanical plants that can induce hallucinations, changes in perception, and other psychological effects. Since neither Salvia divinorum, or any of its constituents, are listed in the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA), a variety of Internet sites have appeared advertising Salvia divinorum as a legal alternative to plant hallucinogens such as mescaline. Seeds, fresh and dried leaves, plant cuttings, whole plants, and various extracts are purported to be sold over the Internet.

Licit Uses:

Neither Salvia divinorum or active constituent Salvinorin A, has an approved medical use in the United States.

Chemistry and Pharmacology:

Salvinorin A, also called Divinorin A, is believed to be the ingredient responsible for the psychoactive effects of Salvia divinorum. Chemically it is a neoclerodane diterpene found in the leaves, and to a lesser extent in the stems. Other substances have been isolated from the plant, but with the possible exception of salvinorin C, none have been shown to be psychoactive.

In the United States, plant material is either chewed or smoked. When chewed, leaf mass and juice are maintained within the cheek area with absorption occurring across the lining of the oral mucosa (buccal). Effects first appear within 5 to 10 minutes. Dried leaves, as well as extracts purported to be enriched with salvinorin A, are smoked. Smoking pure salvinorin A, at a dose of 200-500 micrograms, results in effects within 30 seconds and lasts about 30 minutes.

A limited number of studies have reported the effects of using either plant material or salvinorin A. Psychic effects include perceptions of bright lights, vivid colors and shapes, as well as body movements and body or object distortions. Other effects include dysphoria, uncontrolled laughter, a sense of loss of body, overlapping realities and hallucinations (seeing objects that are not present). Adverse physical effects may include incoordination, dizziness and slurred speech.

Recent studies using tissue testing (in vitro) assays and functional assays show that salvinorin A acts as a potent agonist on the kappa opioid receptor. This may explain the psychoactive effects of Salvia divinorum and salvinorin A since other drugs acting at kappa opioid receptors have been found to cause dysphoria, illusions, and hallucinations.

Illicit Uses:

Salvia divinorum is chewed or smoked to induce illusions and hallucinations, the diversity of which is described by users as similar to those induced by ketamine, mescaline, or psilocybin.

User Population:

Information on the user population is limited. It appears to be mostly younger adults and adolescents influenced by promotions of the drug on Internet sites.

Illicit Distribution:

Salvia divinorum is grown domestically and imported from Mexico and Central and South America. The Internet is an important venue for the promotion and distribution of Salvia divinorum. It is sold as seeds, fresh or dried leaves, plant cuttings, whole plants, and extracts purported to contain salvinorin A.

Control Status:

Salvia divinorum and salvinorin A are not currently controlled under the CSA. However, a number of states have placed controls on Salvia divinorum and/or salvinorin A. In 2005, Louisiana made it illegal to purchase or distribute Salvia divinorum. Both Delaware and Missouri have added Salvia divinorum and salvinorin A into Schedule I of the states’ drug regulations. Tennessee and Oklahoma have also passed legislation on Salvia divinorum in 2006. In addition, as of January 2007, legislative bills proposing regulatory controls on salvinorin A and/or Salvia divinorum are pending in Alaska, Illinois, Maine, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, and Virginia. Internationally, salvinorin A and/or Salvia divinorum have been placed under regulatory controls in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

Obama Grilled About Kill List By Local Reporter

“A local Ohio reporter grilled President Obama forcefully about his controversial so-called “kill list” on Tuesday. Obama has been making an aggressive effort to speak to local reporters during the 2012 campaign, and Ben Swann, a reporter for Fox 19 in Cincinnati, used some of his minutes to press him about the list, which has the names of people who the administration has selected for targeted drone strikes. Press reports about the program have been the subject of heated political arguments on Capitol Hill. Swann was remarkably frank about the interview in a “Reality Check” segment. It was, in several ways, a tougher, more skeptical segment than viewers would find on many a national news program…”.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more here from Jack Mirkinson in The Huffington Post: www.huffingtonpost.com Support The Young Turks by Subscribing bit.ly Like Us on Facebook: www.fb.com Follow Us on Twitter: bit.ly Buy TYT Merch: theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com Find out how to watch The Young Turks on Current by clicking here: www.current.com

1. What is the Church of Euthanasia?

The Church of Euthanasia is a non-profit educational foundation devoted
to restoring balance between Humans and the remaining species on Earth.
We believe this can only be accomplished by a massive *voluntary*
population reduction, which will require a leap in Human consciousness
to a new *species awareness*.

The Human population is increasing by one million every four days. This
is a net increase of 95 million per year, the current population of
Mexico. Even major wars or epidemics hardly dent this rate of growth,
and modern wars also have tremendous environmental consequences. It is
for these practical reasons, as well as moral ones, that we support only
*voluntary* forms of population reduction.

The Church has only one commandment, and it is "Thou Shalt Not
Procreate." In addition, we have four "pillars" or principles, which are
Suicide, Abortion, Cannibalism and Sodomy.

Note that cannibalism is only required for those who insist on eating
flesh, and is strictly limited to consumption of the *already dead*.
Also note that sodomy is defined as any sexual act not intended for
procreation: fellatio, cunnilingus, and anal sex are all forms of sodomy
and are still illegal in many states.

2. Where can I find the Church on-line?

a. world-wide web site and mirror

The web site contains everything the Church has ever released, including
all issues of Snuff It (complete with color photos and graphics), the
complete e-sermons, a resources page with links to Church-approved
sites, and an on-line catalog with an order form. This is the best way
to experience the Church on-line, particularly if your browser supports
graphics. The primary web site is www.paranoia.com/coe/. The
site is also "mirrored" on a considerably faster machine at
www.envirolink.org/orgs/coe/ .

b. ftp and gopher archives

If you don’t have access to the web, or if you want plain text rather than HTML,
try the University of Michigan’s ETEXT archive:

ftp: ftp.etext.org /pub/Zines/Snuffit
gopher: gopher.etext.org Zines/Snuffit

c. e-mail archive

If you’re e-mail only, don’t despair: our e-mail archive doesn’t have
everything, but there’s enough to keep you busy for a long time. To
obtain a list of what’s available, send an e-mail (the subject does not
matter) to coe-request@paranoia.com containing ONLY the line:

index

You’ll receive a listing of the available files, in alphabetical order.
Many systems limit the size of e-mails, and for this reason, the larger
files (e.g. Snuff It) are broken up into sections of around 30k each.
To request one or more of the files, send an e-mail (again, the subject
doesn’t matter) to the same address (coe-request@paranoia.com),
containing a "get" command for each file you want. For example, to
request both parts of Snuff It #1:

get snuffit1a
get snuffit1b

NOTE that the file names are CASE-SENSITIVE (welcome to Unix). Paranoia
is a relatively small system, and downtime is not unheard of, so don’t
expect your file(s) to arrive immediately, but if it’s been longer than
24 hours, something’s probably wrong. Try again, and if it still
doesn’t work, e-mail us at coe@netcom.com.

d. SNUFFIT-L mailing list

SNUFFIT-L is a low-volume (one e-mail per week, on average), *moderated*
mailing list. It is primarily used to disseminate Snuff It (surprise),
important Church news, occasional e-sermons, and other texts as they
become available. To join the list, send an e-mail (the subject doesn’t
matter) to listserv@netcom.com (*NOTE* the different address) containing
ONLY the line:

subscribe snuffit-l

e. talk.euthanasia

Somewhere along the way, a Church newsgroup was proposed, and in the
process of trying to agree on a name, we discovered that the word
"euthanasia" didn’t appear in the UseNet hierarchy at all! A grassroots
campaign followed, and the talk.euthanasia newsgroup was added to the
"big seven" hierarchy in March ’95, thanks to the Church’s persistent
efforts. Unfortunately the group attracts Humanists like flies on crap,
so the conversation tends to be dull to say the least. We occasionally
try to liven things up a bit by posting sermons or articles from Snuff
It. Feel free to lurk there, annoy the Humanists, and flame the idiots
who post pro-life messages. The charter is as follows:

GOOD DEATH is the real meaning of the Greek word "euthanasia," and in
ancient Greece the Hippocratic oath bound all doctors to provide good
death, as much as good life. The talk.euthanasia newsgroup will be open
to discussion of all aspects of euthanasia, including but not limited to
the history, ethics, legality, and practice of suicide and assisted
suicide, in cases of terminal illness and otherwise, as well as the
wider social implications of voluntary and involuntary euthanasia.
Discussion of suicide as a form of mental illness, including suicide
prevention, will be directed elsewhere.

3. Where can I get those nifty stickers, buttons, t-shirts, etc.?

The world-wide web site includes an on-line catalog with an order form.
This is especially useful if you live outside of the United States, as
it will calculate the postage for you. If you don’t have access to the
web, try sending an e-mail to coe-request@paranoia.com containing ONLY
the line:

get catalog

Unfortunately the coe-request version of the catalog is text-only. This
can be awkward for ordering t-shirts, posters, and so forth. You might
prefer to send a SASE to the Church for our 4-page printed catalog,
which includes pictures of everything, or better yet, send for Snuff
It #3 (32 pages), which includes the catalog. Send securely wrapped
cash, money orders, or checks to:

The Church of Euthanasia
P.O.Box 261
Somerville, MA 02143
USA

4. How do I become a member?

If you choose to not procreate, you’re a member already, but why not
make it official? Membership includes a life-time subscription to the
printed version of Snuff It, a 28-page e-sermon booklet, and a lovely
embossed certificate suitable for framing, all for only .

Bear in mind that we take our one commandment *very* seriously.
Membership implies a lifetime vow to not procreate. Procreation is
guaranteed excommunication. There are *no* exceptions; abortion will
be required, period. Of course, such difficulties can be avoided by
faithful adherence to the fourth pillar (sodomy).

5. Do I have to kill myself?

Of course you don’t have to kill yourself! If you really want to,
though, wait until *after* you’ve joined the Church. That way, you
automatically become a saint, without any additional paperwork. Don’t
forget to leave a note thanking and/or blaming the Church, and feel free
to will us your estate, if you have one.

6. I’ve already procreated. Can I still join?

Absolutely! So long as you don’t have any *more*. We have a number of
members with children, and we even have a member whose son joined too.
What’s done is done. What matters is your commitment *now*.

7. How can I help?

The most important way you can help is by not procreating. If you feel
comfortable taking the lifetime vow, then you should consider officially
joining the Church. It would also very helpful if you could manage to
abstain from eating flesh.

If you like to write and have some "fire in the belly," we can always
use guest sermons, articles, and letters to the editor. We prefer
submissions by e-mail or diskette (Word Perfect 5.1 or DOS text format)
so we don’t have to scan or type it in again. If you send a diskette,
you might want to include hard copy also just in case we can’t read it.

We also desperately need money. Propaganda campaigns are expensive!
The Church is exempt from federal income tax under 501(a) and 501(c)(3),
EIN 04-324-9910. Donations are tax-deductible.

Finally, you can help by spreading the word. Talk to people.
Proselytize shamelessly. Ask us for flyers, or even better, make your
own, and distribute them. Write a letter to the editor of your local
paper. Get on the radio or TV. Be a nuisance. Cause trouble. Piss
people off, especially your breeding friends. Carpe diem.

8. What’s the best way for me to kill myself?

This is a hard question, and at least partially beyond the scope of this
FAQ. There is no "best" way, only the way that suits *your* needs best.
For a complete list of all known methods with incisive commentary on
their effectiveness, try the infamous alt.suicide.holiday "methods"
file, available from the "On-line Resources" page of our web site, or
from www.xanthia.com/ash/.
The book "Final Exit," by Hemlock Society founder Derek Humphry (dhumphry@efn.org),
is also very helpful.

We recommend taking an overdose of sleeping pills and fastening a large
plastic trash bag over your head. That way even if the dose isn’t
enough to kill you, or makes you throw up (a common problem), you still
die of asphyxiation. This is by the way the official "Hemlock Society
approved" method, and has proved to be very effective and painless. Use
a rubber band to fasten the bag around your head. It’s best to hold the
bag open while you’re falling asleep, so you can still breathe and don’t
panic. After you fall asleep, your grip loosens, the elastic tightens,
and presto: you stop breathing. The only hard part is getting the pills
(some folks just use the bag, but this is hard-core).

If you can’t get sleeping pills, you could also try connecting a tube to
the exhaust pipe of a car. Run the tube into the car by rolling down
one window a bit, and be sure to use tape (duct tape would be good) to
seal the space around the tube so there’s no leakage. Start up the
motor, turn on the radio, and sit back. This one is completely
painless, and you will not wake up unless 1. you run out of gas (fill
it up first) or 2. someone discovers you (the most common reason why
this method doesn’t work). It’s best to drive somewhere far away from
people, which, needless to say, is getting harder and harder to do.

9. Why haven’t you killed yourself yet?

I just might. Believe me, I think about it every day. But maybe, just
maybe, if enough people listen to what we’re saying and stop procreating
and consuming so much, we might be able to reduce the population and
build a more compassionate, sustainable future. Then maybe I won’t
*need* to kill myself. That hope is the only thing that keeps me alive;
if it ever dies, I’ll die with it, and you can have front row seats. The
real question is how much of your *self* you are willing to sacrifice for
the well-being of the remaining species on Earth, as well as future
generations of Humans.

10. How many members are there?

The Church currently has hundreds of card-carrying members who’ve
taken the vow, plus clergy, directors, and over a thousand "e-members"
on the SNUFFIT-L mailing list. We have members as far away as Italy
and Latvia, though the majority are in the USA.

11. Can I distribute or reprint articles from the Church archives?

Everything we have on the net is yours to use, subject to two
conditions: we request that you include the author’s name if specified,
along with the Church’s e-mail, world-wide web, and postal addresses,
and if you’re *reprinting* rather than quoting or excerpting for use in
your own work, we request that you use the material in its entirety.

12. Where can I get EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION?

The Office of Population Research at Princeton University maintains
an emergency contraception web site and toll-free number. Both allow
you to get information on the "morning after" pill and other forms
of emergency contraception, and then find the clinics, hospitals or
doctors nearest you that will prescribe them. Call 1-800-584-9911 or
access opr.princeton.edu/ec/ec.html right away. *Don’t* "wait and see what happens."
You only have 72 hours!

Answer by dogerman
YOU are just the kind of person that we are looking for in my new forum. Its at www.cclub.editboard.com. As long as you keep up with comments like this you can succeed there. Do make sure you wisit.

About your question, i too agree that we should watch wht we eat. The stations are also the blame, one second on the news they are talking about how the new pill is bad, and the next second theres a comercial for the “new pill” that they just talked about. I also think that people are now going to the doctor for ever litle thing, yes that is bad. Sometimes it is nessesary for you to go to the doctor, but sometimes its also harmfull because your bodies defences will most likley weaken as they get more and more depended on the pills.

So anyway, just comon up to our website.
