Aberdeen decides against alternative medicine chair The chair in “integrative health care and management” at the University of Aberdeen would have been funded primarily by supporters of anthroposophy, a movement founded in the early 20th century by Austrian spiritualist Rudolf Steiner. … A statement released by the university said: “Given the need for sustainability of funding for the longer term, the university could not satisfy its requirement for the highest standards of scientific rigour with the funding model proposed, in particular the aspirations of potential donors to establish a centre of complementary medicine. … However, the statement was criticised by David Colquhoun, former A.J. Clark chair of pharmacology at University College London and a prominent critic of alternative medicine. (Tuesday May 15th, 2012 – Times Higher Education - London UK)

Navy Underwater Testing May Impact Marine Life More Than Previously Thought Given the world’s oceans are already stressed, it would therefore behoove the Navy to take heed from their new study and be a bit more conservative in underwater testing, not only when marine mammals are present, but even when they’re not.

What Mayan Elders Are Saying About 2012 Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan. ... “We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth Changes.” He continues: “Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action.” (Monday May 14th, 2012 – Care2.com - USA)

Grant to boost use of food stamps at farmers markets Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan this week announced a $4 million grant for states to help implement wireless technology that will allow more farmers markets to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, or food stamps.

Maya Painting At Xultun, Guatemala: Glyphs Describe Mayan Calendar But Not End Of World "For the first time we get to see what may be actual records kept by a scribe, whose job was to be official record keeper of a Maya community. It's like an episode of TV's 'Big Bang Theory,' a geek math problem and they're painting on the wall. They seem to be using it like a blackboard." That's Boston University archaeologist William Saturno talking about a new excavation of an ancient Mayan structure hidden in a rain forest in Guatemala's Peten region ... Some of the glyphs relate to various Mayan calendars. But guess what: there's no sign from the glyphs that the Mayans believed the world would end in 2012--only that the world would begin a new cycle. (Friday May 11th, 2012 – Huffington Post - USA)

Abstract performance Choreographer Nicola Elliott is the most recent recipient of the Theatre Arts Admin Collective Emerging Theatre Directors Bursary, supported by Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) and the Baxter Theatre. Elliott’s latest production, Fragile, was staged at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective last week. ... Her relationship with dance has been a meandering journey. “I went to a Waldorf school where movement in the forms of Eurythmy and Botha Gym are integrated into the curriculum. Then there were other experiences – dabbling with tai chi, yoga, synchronised ice skating. So it has been quite an eclectic collage and very much off the beaten track”, she said. Choreography as her career of choice evolved over time. (Wednesday May 9th, 2012 – Independent Online - Johannesburg, South Africa)

Weingut Nikolaihof, Wachau, Austria: Current Releases In 1971, Saas' mother, Christine, who was trained in Anthroposophy and Medicine, began to incorporate Rudolph Steiner's Anthroposophy-based biodynamic thinking to the winery's farming. "In order to become biodynamic all we had to do was simply start using a few preparations," says Nikolaus Saas. Thanks to his mother's early adoption of these techniques, Nikolaihof may well be the first Biodynamic wine estate in Europe, which would necessarily mean that they'd also be the first in the entire world. Nikolaus' father retired from winemaking duties in 1985, handing the day-to-day winery operations over to the younger Saas, who studied winemaking for three years at Austria's famous Geisenheim university before dropping out to return to the family estate.
