September 21, 2014. Good News and Ben and Jerry’s are the last groups at the March. Ben and Jerry’s globe stated if it is melted it is ruined. We here at Good News with our series, The Water Hour are fully aware of the concerns of WATER. We helped create World Water Day at the UN with our associate Phil Sauers of the World Water Rescue Foundation. Our participation at the march was for Peace and for Water, in fact we feature a song that Pete Seeger titled Water not Weapons. Go to www.goodnewsplanet.com

To Friends of Ray,
For those of you who don’t know, I am Ray Korona’s Life Partner. I wanted to make sure everyone listed in his email address book received this note, so please excuse duplication if you have already received it. Also, I tried to send to the whole list yesterday and that didn't seem to work, so I'm sending again in smaller batches.
I hope eventually everybody will think about Ray and get the usual happy feeling, but for now I am sad to say that Ray passed away at 6:00 pm Thursday, Oct. 16, at Hackensack UMC. I was there, along with his brother and sister and in-laws, some nieces and nephews, and several friends. We played Ray's cds. Gina Tlamsa, a friend and member of the Ray Korona Band, added great beauty and peace to the day by playing the flute.
Ray was … [Continue reading...]

At only 16 years old, a junior, in high school, it was on December 11, 2008 when Amanda Suzanne Brownell tried to take her life in a bathroom at Del Mar High School in San Jose, California. This was a result of the bullying, sexual bullying, and cyber bullying she endured through MySpace, Facebook, AIM, and the 3500 text MESSAGES she received the month before her suicide attempt. Amanda, suffered severe brain damage, unable to speak or care for herself.
After almost 4 and 1/2 years Amanda decided that her job here was done. She was hospitalized with pneumonia and seizures on March 13, 2013, while her parents were in Hawaii on vacation. On March 23, Amanda did not want to be poked and squeezed anymore. She was done and did not want any type of medicine or food. There was a family meeting … [Continue reading...]

THE GIVER- THIS IS A POWERFUL MOVIE ON WORLD PEACE, TODAY AND THE FUTURE. DON'T MISS IT.
The Giver. As I watched the Press Conference in awe for this outstanding movie team, I was fascinated with the author of the book Lois Lowry and the screenwriters Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weide. How did they weave her book to make you realize how stupid war is; How Deceitful the Elders (the political leaders) could become and how wonderfully innocent and intuitive our youth are?
The result of this books screen adaption, which is drenched in "the light and the darkness of life" (As suggested by Marcello Padilla, Good News Film Producer), is that our youth SAVE US from OURSELVES, THE GROWN UPS. They see the brighter tomorrow and have the strength to make changes..BRAVO…to … [Continue reading...]
The exploration of ways to create a “sellable” approach to the daunting task of establishing a firm ceiling on greenhouse-gas emissions is important enough that I’m adding another post on this for the weekend.
A Dot Earth reader, Jay Rappoport, followed up on Peter Barnes’s proposal for a “cap and dividend” system with another take on the idea that’s worth highlighting here, if only because the central metaphor is so easy to absorb — having a “bottle bill” for climate.
Of course, one problem with most bottle bills around the United States is the fee hasn’t risen to adjust for inflation, so many bottles still go into the trash because the five-cent surcharge is a yawn. And many drink containers (like all those water bottles!) are left out in most cases. (This recent … [Continue reading...]

Ensuring Safe Water
Lack of access to safe water affects more than 1 billion people in the developing world. Annually, 2 to 3 million children under age 5 die of diseases acquired through exposure to contaminated water.Thanks to a simple technology developed by retired CDC scientist and researcher Dr. Eugene Gangarosa and his colleagues, safe water is becoming a reality for even the poorest families in the most remote parts of the globe. Called the Safe Water System, it combines water treatment using inexpensive diluted bleach solution and safe water storage using narrow-mouthed containers and lids. In recognition of International World Water Day, join us in making a commitment to ensure safe water for people around the world by learning more … [Continue reading...]

Dear Good News Friend’s and Members,
WE ALL love Pete Seeger. He was a hero for us. We had the chance to interview him, create shows with him, spend time at the Beacon Sloop Club, be on the Board of the Clearwater New York City division, use Pete’s songs in and his SING A LONG approach as the heart of our www.peacedayparty.org event and so much more.

Wars, murders, and other acts of violence will likely become more commonplace in coming decades as the effects of global warming cause tempers to flare worldwide, a comprehensive new study warns.
The research, detailed in this week's issue of the journal Science, synthesizes findings scattered across diverse fields ranging from archaeology to economics to paint a clearer picture of how global warming-related shifts in temperature and rainfall could fuel acts of aggression.
Though scientists don't know exactly why global warming increases violence, the findings suggest that it's another major fallout of human-made climate change, in addition to rising sea levels and increased heat waves.
"This study shows that the value of reducing [greenhouse gas] emissions is actually higher than … [Continue reading...]
