Greenpeace Chooses Marketing Over Ethics in Peru Action

Greenpeace activists stand next  to massive letters delivering the message "Time for Change: The Future is Renewable" next to the hummingbird geoglyph in Nazca in Peru, Monday, Dec. 8, 2014. The Nazca peoples' ancient geoglyphs are one of the country's cultural landmarks.

Once again Greenpeace chose marketing over ethics in a deeply offensive and destructive action at a sacred site in Peru last week.  While Greenpeace ED Kumi Naidoo has made a videotaped apology for this idiotic action, I don’t buy it.  I personally witnessed Kumi’s sleazy tactics at the UN Climate talks in Durban where he orchestrated a fake “arrest” with UN security so that the media would run photos of him being led out of the talks in handcuffs–another marketing ploy.  How do I know this was a fake arrest?  Because a colleague and I engaged in civil disobedience at the same action, refusing to comply with UN security, being carried out of the talks…

Jesse McKinley   New York Times 17    December 2014

Marie Curie gets advice from Albert Einstein in lost letter

Marie Curie gets advice from Albert Einstein in lost letter
by Aileen Graef
Prague, Czech Republic (UPI) Dec 8, 2014


File image: Marie Curie.

“Haters gonna hate.”

That is the message of a 1911 letter from Albert Einstein to Marie Curie where the scientist told his colleague not to listen to her critics.

About 10 years after she won her Nobel Prize for her work in radiation, Curie was still facing a lot of criticism as a woman, an atheist and an alleged Jew — which was looked down upon during a time of antisemitism in France. Einstein said she should not listen to any of them.

“I am convinced that you consistently despise this rabble,” he wrote. “Whether it obsequiously lavishes respect on you or whether it attempts to satiate its lust for sensationalism!”

There was also a lot of criticism over the rumors that Curie was having affair Paul Langevin, who was married but estranged from his wife. People said she damaged the name of her dead husband, Pierre Curie. Einstein just told her to ignore it.

He told her, “[i]f the rabble continues to occupy itself with you, then simply don’t read that hogwash, but rather leave it to the reptiles for whom it has been fabricated.”

NEWARK — The cold rain had been pouring for several hours by the time the Olympian Tim Morehouse exited a cab in front of Vailsburg Elementary School. Over his shoulder, he carried a large black duffel bag filled with plastic foils and fencing masks. Despite the gray skies, he seemed giddy. :::http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/14/sports/an-olympian-take-fencing-to-children-in-cities.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&smid=tw-nytimes&_r=0
