Waiting for my mom, Peter, and turkey to arrive. Everything else here is set. Listening to Holly Near and Ronnie Gilbert singing about agitators for justice and love and heartbreak and trains. Grateful that, as the song says, I won't be blue always. Grateful for you all.
Happy thanksgiving. - Meg VMeg from Android
In Jungian psychology, it is understood that the individual’s psyche is bi-gendered in that it contains both masculine and feminine aspects, and in this case it should be understood that these two things – ‘celestial mother’ and ‘earthly father’ – relate to ‘every man and every woman.’ - http://astraldouble.com/post...

MoMA | Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs
In the late 1940s, Henri Matisse turned almost exclusively to cut paper as his primary medium, and scissors as his chief implement, introducing a radically new operation that came to be called a cut-out. Matisse would cut painted sheets into forms of varying shapes and sizes—from the vegetal to the abstract—which he then arranged into lively compositions, striking for their play with color and contrast, their exploitation of decorative strategies, and their economy of means. Initially, these compositions were of modest size but, over time, their scale grew along with Matisse’s ambitions for them, expanding into mural or room-size works. A brilliant final chapter in Matisse’s long career, the cut-outs reflect both a renewed commitment to form and color and an inventiveness directed to the status of the work of art, whether as a unique object, environment, ornament, or a hybrid of all of these. Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs is a groundbreaking reassessment of this important body of work. - Hami from Bookmarklet

A fully transparent solar cell that could make every window and screen a power source - http://www.extremetech.com/extreme...
Researchers at Michigan State University have created a fully transparent solar concentrator, which could turn any window or sheet of glass (like your smartphone's screen) into a photovoltaic solar cell. Unlike other 'transparent' solar cells that we've reported on in the past, which are actually quite colorful and opaque, this one really is transparen. The team are confident that the transparent solar panels can be efficiently deployed in a wide range of settings, from "tall buildings with lots of windows or any kind of mobile device that demands high aesthetic quality like a phone or e-reader." - Alan

Iraq crisis: Sunni caliphate has been bankrolled by Saudi Arabia - Voices - The Independent (Robert Fisk)
"So after the grotesquerie of the Taliban and Osama bin Laden and 15 of the 19 suicide killers of 9/11, meet Saudi Arabia’s latest monstrous contribution to world history: the Islamist Sunni caliphate of Iraq and the Levant, conquerors of Mosul and Tikrit – and Raqqa in Syria – and possibly Baghdad, and the ultimate humiliators of Bush and Obama. From Aleppo in northern Syria almost to the Iraqi-Iranian border, the jihadists of Isis and sundry other groupuscules paid by the Saudi Wahhabis – and by Kuwaiti oligarchs – now rule thousands of square miles. Apart from Saudi Arabia’s role in this catastrophe, what other stories are to be hidden from us in the coming days and weeks?" - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"No one will care now how many hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been slaughtered since 2003 because of the fantasies of Bush and Blair. These two men destroyed Saddam’s regime to make the world safe and declared that Iraq was part of a titanic battle against “Islamofascism”. Well, they lost. Remember that the Americans captured and recaptured Mosul to crush the power of Islamist... more... - Sean McBride

Saudi Arabia under suspicion of supporting 9/11 attackers - Tehran Times - http://tehrantimes.com/middle-...
"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is not immune from liability for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, since there is detailed evidence in the record showing its material support for, and assistance to the hijackers, asserts a legal brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court on May 21." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"In their brief, the plaintiffs mock the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as "a supposed ‘ally’ of the United States," saying, "The Kingdom is alleged to have provided material support and assistance through its officials and agents to al-Qaeda, including assistance that enabled it to develop the network and capabilities that would ultimately carry out the September 11th attacks. It allegedly... more... - Sean McBride
"Omar al-Bayoumi, a Saudi intelligence officer, and Fahad al-Thumairy, a Saudi diplomat from the Ministry of Islamic Affairs ... allegedly assisted two of the September 11th hijackers directly from within the United States. This support included renting an apartment for two of the hijackers, facilitating their settlement in San Diego during preparation for the attacks, and helping them enroll in flight schools.” - Sean McBride
"Plaintiffs also alleged that Muhammed Fakihi, the head of the Islamic affairs department of the Saudi embassy in Berlin, assisted members of the Hamburg al-Qaeda cell that planned and coordinated the September 11th attacks." - Sean McBride
"In support of their claims, the plaintiffs cite former U.S. Senator Bob Graham’s statement that "he is convinced that there was [a] direct line between at least some of the terrorists who carried out the September 11th attacks and the government of Saudi Arabia," and they also note that, following the 9/11 attacks, "senior U.S. counter-terrorism officials described to Congress how... more... - Sean McBride
There is close to a total blackout on this story in the American mainstream media. Why? The censorship is not based on any affection for Saudi Arabia. - Sean McBride

Another prominent liberal Jew runs away from the Zionist label - http://mondoweiss.net/2014...
Israel's "political-messianism and its connection to religion and extreme nationalism... is similar to the main component" of Nazism, scholar Saul Friedlander says, echoing Max Blumenthal
“I am connected to this country. My eldest son and grandchildren live here but I can’t call myself a Zionist. Not because I feel estranged from Israel but because Zionism has been taken, kidnapped even, by the far right. You could say I was a normal Zionist until 1968, when I wrote a short book in French about Israel’s future. I don’t think it was especially daring, but I already then I... more... - Sean McBride
"In that Haaretz interview, Friedlander also says that people should be allowed to criticize Israeli policy by using the Nazi analogy. “[T]he political-messianism and its connection to religion and extreme nationalism we see in Israel today is similar to the main component of extreme European movements,” he says." - Sean McBride
"Friedlander knows the backlash awaiting anyone who compares what is happening today between Israel and the Palestinians with the dark days in Europe. But few know as much as he does about that period. “Things that are being said now remind us of some of the bad regimes of the 1930s, but not the 1940s,” he says, making a clear distinction. “But it’s dangerous to compare because the... more... - Sean McBride
