On Friday, May 31, Turkish riot police fired tear gas and pepper spray into a peaceful protest held to save Gezi Park, one of the last green areas in central Istanbul.
This set off the biggest civil uprising in the history of the Turkish Republic, calling for Prime Minister Erdogan’s resignation.
The unrest has spread like wildfire to more than 60 cities where protests are still ongoing. We landed in Istanbul the day it all kicked off.
thedochierarchy: 15 Reasons to Live (Zweig, 2013) Inspired by author Ray Robertson’s book “Why Not: Fifteen Reasons To Live,” filmmaker Alan Zweig embarks on a personal journey to find out what makes life worth living. Featuring 15 short stories, “15 Reasons To Live” is a thoughtful and searching examination on the nature of human happiness, and the profound events in life that can unexpectedly change the course of a person’s destiny.
When we set out to make this short, our intention simply was to observe the phenomenon of fashion bloggers and street style stars. As we started to review the footage, two salient trends became apparent: fashion editors frustrated by the ensuing commotion outside of shows, and the rise of “peacocking” street style stars as a result of the proliferation of blogs. This film examines these themes from both perspectives.
The Secret Life of Plants: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFByy8QVwrM
The documentary, The Secret Life of Plants is an ecclectic collection of scientific experiments, anthropology and art. Studies show that plants are more aware than most give them credit. This amazing documentary includes:
• Pioneering Indian scientist Jagadish Chandra Bose shows similarities between plant and animal tissue, suggesting that plants have a sensory system like that of humans.
• Cleve Baxter, polygraph expert, demonstrates a plant’s amazing (seemingly psychic) sensory abilities.
• Parapsychology researcher, Randy Fontes shows a plant responding to human emotional responses.
• The Dogon tribe is also investigated in an effort to understand unexplained conscience connections.
This video also shows much more. I’m definitely getting a plant for my house soon.

I wouldnt weight on the fact that it was actually made by the N. Korean govt. However I won’t be surprised if they did.
But that’s not the point. The point is that the world does run by bunch of propagandist or lobbyists or whatever u like to call them.
