A Movie Review by Michael Mullaley
When Adham, a 17-year-old who lives in a garbage village on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt, is asked what he'd do with all the trash if he owned a landfill, he says: "I'd dig it out. It's all a gift from God to be recycled and reused."
Where he lives, recycling and reusing are more than earth-friendly actions; they're the only ways of life. Adham is part of the Zabbaleen (Arabic for "garbage people"), a peasant community whose only source of income is to recycle trash collected from the streets of Cairo – a city with no waste-disposal system.
A crisis ensues when Cairo decides to contract companies from Spain and Italy to dispose of the trash. The film follows Adham and two other trash-collecting boys, Nabil and Osama, chronicling the choices they make to secure their survival. Forced to adopt newer trash-collecting methods, the Zaballeen start a recycling school where children learn to read, write, and do business.
The film does an excellent job of portraying the cultural pressures that the boys deal with, and provides a touching example of hard work and perseverance in an attempt to make the best life possible. It's humbling to watch these teens aspire to live like Westerners, and a good reminder of how much we take for granted.

Sometimes, people walk back into our lives. Sometimes, things resurface after a while. Why now? is a question to be answered by ourselves. The video below popped-up in the HMHC mailbox; so, my answer to why now ? is to post it here on the blog.
The energy principles working behind SuperBrain Yoga were known long time ago, especially in Oriental and Energy Medicine. Practitioners of Energy Healing have used these techniques for years.
I have asked Barbara to share her point of view. She says:
"I think that SuperBrain Yoga has great promise for anyone. It is so easy and simple and it can increase your intelligence ; an exercise to get smart well worth the effort and I am certainly willing to give it a go.
If you have not heard of SuperBrain Yoga, there is this video;
And then, there is the website SuperBrain Yoga who presents the book of the same name by Master Choa Kok Sui. You'll find also the link About SuperBrain Yoga which explains origins, studies and benefits of practicing Pranic healing.

"A pod of bottlenose dolphins off the coast of Florida have developed a
remarkable hunting strategy in order to catch fish. Another awesome
thing about this technique is that only one female in the pod can
create this ring, and it's always counterclockwise. "

I found neat that this artist uses anew art medium to speak of history and a painful time for her folks. As showing in the clip, many people were deeply touched.

in Copenhagen, Denmark
Odyssey Networks is following the Climate Change Summit from Copenhagen.
The organization is “the nation’s largest coalition of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith groups dedicated to achieving interfaith understanding”…read more>
HMHC is “ dedicated to personal & planetary wholeness. To that end we have created a space where individuals can be safe to pursue their spiritual evolution..” HMHC recognizes interfaith in the larger scope of all faith, not solely those embraced by Odyssey Networks.
Thoughts and ideas expressed in the videos offer, in my humble opinion, opportunities to reflect in many ways of worships, prayers and meditation.
HMHC invites readers to view the video below as an option to follow the unfolding of the world conference. To view more videos on the conference, click Faith at the Summit, where you also will find the opportunity to sign-up for Odyssey Updates.
Video introduction by Odyssey Networks:
“Peace is at the heart of our mission. Our rapidly changing climate is a growing threat to that mission as conflicts over dwindling resources spread across the globe. This is why we are focusing on the world's faith leaders at the most important summit meeting of our time…
The historic United Nations Climate Change Conference has opened at the Bella Center in Copenhagen. The world's faith leaders are in the Danish capital as well to advocate for decisive action on carbon emissions. Join Mark Dowd, producer/presenter of "Faith at the Summit," in a conversation with Reverend Dr. Joan Brown Campbell (Chautauqua Institution), Reverend Richard Cizik (New Evangelicals), and Venerable Bhikku Bodhi (Buddhist Global Relief) as they examine the spiritual crisis that underlies the crisis of climate change. Just click on the video to view. Remember...you can share this discussion with your friends and colleagues…”
Thank you for your time.
