“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time.” – Edward Grey

Several years ago, I wrote a book called Doctoring Data. It was my attempt to help people navigate their way through medical headlines and medical data.

12 October 2013 — williambowles.info

This past week, we saw the mouthpiece of Imperialism, the Norwegian Nobel Committee award its ‘Peace Prize’ to the UN’s Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), before it’s even completed its work (if it ever will or can)! Almost exactly one year ago following the awarding of the Nobel ‘Peace Prize’ to the European Union for its participation in the invasion of Libya and the overthrow of a sovereign state, the eminent academic Francis A. Boyle wrote the following, a statement that applies equally to this year’s award: Continue reading

Bradley Manning defence rests after calling just 10 witnesses

The Guardian

The defence has rested its case in the trial of the WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning, rounding off its portrayal of the US soldier as a young man who accepted that he was wrong to have leaked a vast trove of state secrets but who had no “general evil …

Obama Plans African Wars By Stephen Lendman

10 December 2012 — Boiling Frogs

War is America’s Option of Choice 

AfricanWarsObama’s war-making appetite exceeds all his predecessors and then some. He’s already waging multiple direct and proxy wars.

His rhetoric about winding them down rings hollow. He wants to make the most of the next four years.

No targeted country left behind reflects his agenda. He’s ravaging the world multiple countries at a time. He’s out-of-control. He governs like a serial killer.

BDS: Boycotting Apartheid By Eric Walberg

21 September, 2010 — Eric Walberg

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign moves ahead in Washington, California, British Columbia, Harvard and Brown Universities, and the Netherlands, notes Eric Walberg

In July, in Rachel Corrie’s hometown of Olympia, Washington state, the popular Food Co-op announced that no Israeli products would be sold at its two grocery stores. Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a principal endorser of this new Israel Divestment Campaign, issued a statement endorsing the boycott. “The Olympia Food Co-op has joined a growing worldwide movement on the part of citizens and the private sector to support by non-violent tangible acts the Palestinian struggle for justice and self-determination.”

Media Lens: The Cockroach Test

22 September, 2009 — MEDIA LENS: Correcting for the distorted vision of the corporate media

Alain de Botton, “Branded Conversations”, and Runaway Climate Change

News that philosopher Alain de Botton had been hired as Heathrow’s “writer in residence” generated minor ripples across the media pond, including occasional murmurs of disapproval. Journalists momentarily failed to repress their awareness that truth into corporate profit-maximising does not go, although without perceiving the implications for themselves.

Thus Dan Milmo, writer in residence at the Guardian, noted that de Botton was “the latest artistic figure to tread the precarious line between creative independence and commerce after signing a publishing deal with the financial support of Heathrow’s owner, BAA.” (Milmo, ‘High minded: Heathrow hires De Botton: Philosophical author begins work as airport’s writer-in-residence,’ The Guardian, August 19, 2009)

Milmo recalled how novelist Fay Weldon had been found to be responsible for “one of the most notorious sell-outs of recent times” when it emerged that her latest novel had been sponsored by the Italian jewellery firm Bulgari. Weldon explained last month:

“I was accused of defiling the novel. The deal was that I must mention Bulgari 12 times in a novel I wrote for them as a giveaway. My agent was terribly good and knocked them down to nine and a half mentions. In the end I mentioned them 46 times.” (www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2009/aug/30/fay-weldon)
