Shaming as a strategy
I just had an epiphany. Many years of observing trolls on IMC have short of culminated in this explanation as to why people aren't responding to anything. Even the government itself publicly uses this technique to lambast issues. What technique is that? Shaming.

OR; FERC Lacks Oversight on LNG, Ignored Risks of CSZ!
The latest from the "NO on LNG" campaign from Oregon, Senator Wyden appears at town hall meetings, asked by public to pressure FERC to prove an actual need for an LNG facility and trans-state pipeline that justifies eminant domain seizure of resident's property. Includes commentary on Cascadian Subduction Zone spawned tsunami risks to LNG tankers and how local, state and federal officials may be trying to put al Queda out of business by killing more Americans than al Queda can by allowing the highly explosive LNG facility to be built without consulting seismologists about the risks of CSZ tsunamis.

The Death of Liberty Hall
My name is Alexander Reisinger. Liberty Hall was started in my mother's basement, Susan. The people involved were Brian, Leif Desert Rat, Christian Nostalgia, Jenny Knowles, and myself. The Hall was started in anticipation of a UPS walkout, commiserate to a turnover and signing of a long term contract. The contract between the labor unions, (ILWU) International Long Shore Union, and the UPS bosses was signed. No actions by Liberty Hall had to be taken. We were leasing Liberty Hall from an Ethiopian Activist, Allum, who held the Hall as a music venue before us. It had been a Reggae Hall.

A treatise on dog "whispering"
As an animal rights activist, I am concerned about the popularity of so-called "dog whisperer" Caesar Milan, and his outdated "pack leader" mentality. Don't get me wrong. Milan has done a lot of good for a lot of dogs. He's an advocate of rehabilitation for even the most aggressive of dogs, he constantly educates people about the ignorance surrounding the hype over bully breeds, and he locates dog behavior problems in the humans handling the dogs, not in the dogs themselves. He also believes in what he does, and for some people and some dogs, his methods work. But that's not the whole story. This is.

What Really Happens When You Take Your Dog to the Pound
Every year, thousands of people turn in their dogs and cats to county animal shelters. They all have their... "reasons." They will tell you how they "just couldn't care for him anymore," how they are moving, how they are having a baby, how they are downsizing, how the cat is peeing outside the box, how the dog has become a "handful." And they will tell themselves, and you, that it was the right thing to do, that it was for the good of the animal, that it is the best thing. They stupidly think the dog or cat will get a "good home."

Portland Woman To Live On Wild Food Foraged In Portland For Thanksgiving Week
From Friday Nov. 20 through Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 26, urban forager Rebecca Lerner will attempt to survive exclusively on wild food she gathers from sidewalks, parks, wilderness areas and yards in the city of Portland, OR. There will be no Dumpster diving, mooching from gardens or picking from cultivated fruit trees. In an effort to highlight wild food, Lerner's unusual menu will include thistle, sumac, dandelion and other weeds; fat she gathered from a roadkill deer; the root vegetable wapato; acorns, chestnuts, hazelnuts and black walnuts harvested from city trees; mushrooms; stinging nettles; hawthorn berries; yellow dock seeds; cleavers, and more.

"Foraging is a fun and free way to get healthy local food," Lerner said. "It's also a survival skill that can come in handy in an emergency, and a way to get in touch with our roots as hunter-gatherers."
