Incredible Timelapse Movie of Earth As Viewed From the Orbiting Space Station
ISS Flight Over Africa with Milky Way
This video was taken by the crew of Expedition 30 on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots was taken December 29, 2011 from 20:55:05 to 21:14:09 GMT, on a pass from over central Africa, near southeast Niger, to the South Indian Ocean, southeast of Madagascar. The complete pass is over southern Africa to the ocean, focusing on the lightning flashes from local storms and the Milky Way rising over the horizon.
The Milky Way can be spotted as a hazy band of white light at the beginning of the video. The pass continues southeast toward the Mozambique Channel and Madagascar. The Lovejoy Comet can be seen very faintly near the Milky Way. The pass ends as the sun is rising over the dark ocean.

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them… con’d >>
After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.
When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate of pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.
When he was close enough, he called out, “Excuse me, where are we?”
“This is Heaven, sir,” the man answered. “Wow! Would you happen to have some water?” the man asked.
Of course, sir. Come right in, and I”ll have some ice water brought right up.”The man gestured, and the gate began to open.
“Can my friend,” gesturing toward his dog, “come in, too?” the traveler asked.
“I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t accept pets.”
The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.
After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.
As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.
“Excuse me!” he called to the man. “Do you have any water?”
“Why sure, there”s a pump over there, come on in.”
“How about my friend here?” the traveler gestured to the dog.
“There should be a bowl by the pump.”
They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.
The traveler filled the water bowl for the dog and took a long drink himself. When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.
“What do you call this place?” the traveler asked.
“This is Heaven,” he answered.
“Well, that’s confusing,” the traveler said. “The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.”
“Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That”s hell.”
“Doesn’t it make you mad for them to use your name like that?”
“No, we’re just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.”
A Soldier Weeps While Holding a Dead Baby in His Arms
An extraordinarily heartbreaking picture of an unknown soldier holding a dead baby close to his heart, emotionally overwrought. No… this is not an amazing nor beautiful picture… but then perhaps the truly beautiful, amazing, wondrous thing might be how this picture shows us another truth and reality that we might have missed while struggling through our daily routines.
This is a particular moving image depicting the devastating consequences of war. I do not have the details about this particular image, only that it caused great grief when i first saw it in an email. But then, any pictures of dead children are devastating in scope.
Evidently this soldier is deeply moved by the death of this little baby. He will never forget this little child and this moment will likely haunt him for the rest of his days. He seems to be a soldier of great love, caring and courage. Hopefully he will go on to find a truly hopeful and peaceful way to reconcile the things he has born witness to.
The baby is so completely innocent in all of this. One day laughing, smiling, patting little hands together, the next day terrified, killed, then held in a bloody blanket by a stranger. But the stranger weeps for him or her… as do we all.
If anyone has any details about this image, please let me know.

Gypsy Stallion owned by Villa Vanners that was born in Oregon.
I received these extraordinary pictures in an email and HAD to share them online. Animals are PRECIOUS beyond BELIEF. Thank you to the person who took the photographs, forever capturing an utterly unimaginably beautiful series of images.
I hope and pray that someday soon, all animals are treated with utmost love, compassion, caring and kindness. Always.
Re: Dave Raw Food Trucker
In 2009 and 2010, Dave the Raw Food Trucker claimed to have experienced cancer remission, relief from kidney complications and diabetes recovery using the “rainbow diet” nutritional program created by Dr. Gabriel Cousens. Dave lost almost 200 pounds and was able to temporarily return to work.
However, in 2011, Dave the Raw Food Trucker suffered a heart attack.
Now, in 2012, Dave states he has recovered from his heart attack and is once again promoting a mostly raw lifestyle.
The videos below of Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Dave’s inspiration, may help explain and illustrate the diet Dave used. Thousands of people have overcome diabetes with Dr. Cousens’ special diet and now live a medication free life.
Another benefit of Dr. Cousen’s diet is the normalization of weight. Currently, under the tutulage of Dan McDonald, commonly known on Youtube as the raw food “liferegenerator,” Bill Barlow lost 90 pounds in approximately 4 months on the green juice diet. Bill states that he eats all the fresh, raw vegetables he wants, as did Dave. IMPORTANT NOTE
Dr. Cousens is a medical doctor, and as such, can prescribe and recommend medical treatments. If one is seeking to lose weight or regain health, it is highly recommended that you do your own research and read Dr. Cousens’ books and other fully qualified medical authors in full, and consult with a credentialed professional.)
Please note that ALL information regarding your health, and any claims made by Internet personalities MAY OR MAY NOT be verifiable. Use wisdom, reservation and discernment in your evaluation of any and all information online, and consult with a certified physician such as Dr. Gabriel Cousens or other licensed, natural, holistic medical professionals. Any claims by non-professional individuals are generally classified as entertainment or educational only, and any information they provide is not to be taken as fact without proper verification.
DAN THE MAN – DAN MCDONALD LIFEREGENERATOR
RAW GREEN JUICE RECIPE
with DAVE THE RAW FOOD TRUCKER & BILL BARLOW
Recipe for Green Juice – Great for Dieting and Losing Weight
This is the original green juice recipe that Dan the Man and Dave the Raw Food Trucker used back in 2009. Dan is now a popular raw food hero and strong proponent of fresh, live green juice. He believes in the natural healing and diet benefits of raw fruits and vegetables.
These ingredients are what Dan and Dave used to make 3 gallons worth of juice at once. This is an ULTRA LOW-glycemic juice that Dan and Dave credit for helping cure his body of Type II Diabetes & Stage IV Colon Cancer.
Dan, Dave and Bill are ALL about having their produce be 100% organic. Just do the best you can!
* I n g r e d i e n t s *
* F R E S H R A W D A R K G R E E N L E A F Y J U I C E *
— 5 bunches Spinach (w/ stems intact; not just the leaves)
— 2 bunches Red Chard
— 3 bunches Collard Greens
— 3 bunches Kale
— 4 bunches Cilantro
— 1 bunch Fresh Basil
— 4 bunches Beet Greens (Dave ONLY juices the greens of the beets & NOT the actual beets, as he’s still recovering from the diabetes. For those not dealing w/ diabetes, feel free to juice the beets!
— 6 Red Bell Peppers
— 4 Yellow Bell Peppers
— 2 heads Fennel
— 4 heads Celery
— 12 Cucumbers (unpeeled if organic; peeled if inorganic)
— 2 dozen on-the-vine Tomatoes
— 3 heads Broccoli
— 1 pound Baby Bok Choy (or 1 bunch Bok Choy)
— 1 bunch Mustard Greens (use a smaller amount if the flavor is too strong)
— 4 bunches Parsley (2 Regular, 2 Italian)
— 1 bunch Asparagus
— 1 large Fresh Aloe Leaf (inorganic ok; organic is rarely available…also, only juice the lower portion of it & always juice a bit & taste, juice a bit & taste, as it can be VERY potent)
— 1 bottle of E3Live Algae (Blue Green Algae)
— Rainbow Light Advanced Systems Digestive Enzymes (to help control gas, especially when you first jump into a program like this! If you can’t find this brand, look for a type that’s raw vegan & whole-plant sourced)
* IMPORTANT – Whatever you do, be SURE a diet is right for you by checking with your physician, or at least reading up information from a bonafide DOCTOR. There are books referenced by Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., here, to start with. *
Dave also added Hallelujah Acres Barley Max (Barley Green Powder)
*Dan added a couple more ingredients,
picked fresh from the garden!*
— 1 bunch wild Lamb’s Quarters
— 1 bunch wild Plantain
* B e n e f i t s *
— Plantain ~ Moves the lymphatic system: Pulls mucus, etc. out of the body
— Tomatoes ~ For delicious flavor!
— Aloe Leaf ~ Soothes the GI tract, especially if there are ulcers and/or inflammation!
— Broccoli ~ Some call it the “answer to cancer” but what do you think? 😉
WHAT TO DO WITH THE PULP?
Here’s a list of things you can do with the pulp remains:
* Make delicious broth for soups
* Broth for cooking sprouted grains, rice, etc.
* Broth for a delightful “vegetable tea”
* Use pulp to make nutritious cookies, muffins, cakes
* Pets love simmered pulp leavings – delicious! : )
* Added to home made pet food
* Excellent Compost for your cozy bin of worms (they love it : )
Some people believe that many people no longer have all the digestive enzymes they need and cannot simply digest all the nutrients they need. People crave more food because they’re not getting what they need. Today’s food in cans, jars, bottles and boxes have lost all their enzymes.
About Juice Feasting
“After starting a juice feast, a lot of women who are post menopausal regain their periods after day 10 and 22. Raw juicing can bring your body back to where it really belongs.”

Vegetable Juice Recipes for Weight Loss *
Raw Vegetable Diet *
* B e n e f i t s * according to Dan the Man
— Red Chard ~ High in betacarotene
— Collard Greens ~ High in phytonutrients
— Kale ~ Has the highest known level of phytonutrients in it that are digestible by humans (over 2x the level of spinach!)
— Beets ~ Beet green leaves have 2,000x the level of Vitamin K in them than the actual beets, so that’s why its worth it to Dave to buy them just for their greens!
— Bell Peppers ~ Great for flavor
— Celery & Cucumber ~ Function well as a hydrating juice base
— Tomatoes ~ Dave likes them because of the lycopene and chooses not to believe what they say about having to cook tomatoes in order to get more lycopene, for if you’re cooking tomatoes, you’re destroying the very enzymes that your body needs to digest the lycopene! What good is ingesting more lycopene if you can’t adequately digest, assimilate & utilize it?
— Aloe Leaf ~ Incredible for the cardiovascular system!
