The Healing of Serpents at Easter

The original, pre-Christian name for Easter was Oestre, named after the goddess of the Spring Equinox, when painted eggs would be left as offerings to her in her serpent form, at her shrines. Oestre’s festival of healing and regeneration was always on the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. [...]Thousands of years ago, our ancestors used the serpent to represent their cognitive framework upon which to base their science of holistic and spiritual healing, and it had just as much value and validity then, if not more so.

Easter - Christian or Pagan?

From: truthbeknown.com Contrary to popular belief, Easter does not represent the “historical” crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In reality, the gospel tale reflects the annual “crossification” of the sun through the vernal equinox (Spring), at which time the sun is “resurrected,” as the day begins to become longer than the night. Rather than being a “Christian” holiday, Easter celebrations date back …

Douglas Macgregor RINF Alternative News
In a 15 April OPED published in the Washington Post, former Ambassador and Bush Deputy National Security Advisor, James Jeffrey, now a fellow at the Washington Institute argues for the commitment of American ground forces to “quell the crisis” in Ukraine. In yet another American triumph of ill-considered military adventurism over statecraft, Ambassador Jeffrey seems to think Mr. Putin will be impressed with the gradual appearance of a few U.S. Army ground units on Russia’s border. Meanwhile, like Secretary Kerry, Ambassador Jeffrey is ignoring the simple truth that Mr. Putin is doing the West a

MSNBC and Chris Hayes: The Toilet Bowl of Broadcast Journalism

21st Century Wire says…As partisan media outlets go, none are more blatantly over-the-top as the White House’s broadcast media arm MSNBC.

Schools use CCTV to spy on teachers

Schools are using CCTV cameras designed to keep pupils safe to spy on teachers, it has been claimed.
Teachers are being subjected to “permanent surveillance”, with school leaders monitoring the footage and using it to make judgments about the performance of their staff, according to the NASUWT teaching union.
In many cases, teachers say they could not turn off the cameras in their classroom.
The survey comes as delegates attending the NASUWT’s annual conference in Birmingham debate a resolution warning that monitoring of teachers is becoming excessive.
It says that this monitoring goes beyond any reasonable justification, or value to pupils’ progress.

Though officials at the World Health Organization are feverishly working to stop the spread of the Ebola virus in what is now seven African nations, their efforts may be for naught.
