Mubarik to address Egyptian People,
Reports of Resignation

Egyptian Voices From Tahir Square
Crowds of Egyptians, estimated to number in the hundreds of thousands, and possibly millions, took to the streets to call for President Hosni Mubarak to step down.After more than a week of deaths, protests, violence, and looting, the crisis continues. Yahoo! Contributor Maktoob profiled eight Egyptian protesters from different walks of life who shared their experiences, expectations, and hopes.
From Tamir el Demerdash, Age 36
. . . The president is playing with our emotions… and the Egyptian state TV is filled with lies. They are using the Muslim Brotherhood card to strike fear into us, but I am telling you that even though they are with us (protesters), they are not imposing their ideas on us, and even if they do, we won't allow them.
I am hoping that President Mubarak steps down and relinquishes power to Vice President Omar Suleiman. When the regime goes down, we should regroup and figure things out with the help of the Committee of Elders.
Perceptive Advice from a Statesperson
Hillary Clinton Speaks to the Egyptians
It would seem that Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton clearly and perceptively remembers what happened in the attempted “democratic” elections in Iraq. Her inquiries to the U.S. military, (on abuses in Iraq) shown on CNN during the early years of the Iraqi conflict seemed on target. The democratic process never quite “happened” in Iraq. It seemed that the U.S. intervention became a central component of the “process”.
She now counsels the Egyptians on the dangers of holding elections without adequate preparation,
“ Revolutions have overthrown dictators in the name of democracy, only to see the process hijacked by new autocrats who use violence, deception and rigged elections to stay in power,” she said. (Quote from Sunday NY Times International 2/6/11, Pg 11, “U.S. and Western Powers Seek a Gradual Transition of Power in Egypt“, by Fahim, Shadid from Cairo and Landler from Munich).
Kudos to our talented Secretary of State, Clinton, for seeing, comprehending and informing. With information often comes clarity.
Pycnogenol, Cell Survival
David and Lynn worked on this article
Pycnogenol comes from the pine bark of a tree known as Pinus pinaster. This is actually a French pine tree, grown on a plantation of million of acres of maritime pine trees in southwest France, near the Bordeaux region. These mono species tree forests are cultivated over a period of 30-50 years. Neither pesticides nor herbicides are used in the growing. This pine bark contains active bioflavonoids, also found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Pycnogenol is a water extract from the bark of the these trees.
The active ingredients in pycnogenol can also be extracted from other sources, including peanut skin, grape seed, and witch hazel bark.
The human body will generate free radicals especially when stress is present. Free radicals cause cellular damage by oxidizing cells. Many scientists believe that continuous exposure is a major cause of the effects of aging and degenerative diseases. Pycnogenol stimulates the cells to double their ant oxidative power and it catches free radicals in the blood stream. It is one of the few herbal remedies with this ability.
Considered a free radical “scavenger” it rids the blood of aggressive free radicals before they cause damage through oxidative stress. It boosts the immune system and it strengthens blood vessel walls and capillaries. It supports a better circulation by preventing stress-induced constriction of arteries and blood-clotting. It also contains substances which act against cramps.
Overexposure to electromagnetic activity (EM) can cause lowered immunity. Pycnogenol contains substances that might improve blood flow. It might also stimulate the immune system and have antioxidant effects. Korean scientists found that pycnogenol had anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive activities, as pycnogenol showed inhibitory effects on the expression of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1 by regulating redox-sensitive transcription factors. Pycnogenol may be one of the better herbs to take to effectively deal with over exposure to EM.

from Democracy Now Former U.S. President George W. Bush has been forced to cancel a planned trip to Switzerland after human rights attorneys threatened to take legal action against him for sanctioning the use of torture. . . . The Center for Constitutional Rights said they had planned to bring a complaint against Bush under the Convention Against Torture on behalf of two men who were tortured by U.S. interrogators and held at the military base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. In addition, Amnesty International said it had sent a detailed analysis to Swiss prosecutors, claiming there was sufficient information to open a criminal investigation against Bush.
Matthew Pollard, attorney with Amnesty International: "Well, what we’re specifically bringing to the attention of the Swiss authorities are statements that Mr. Bush himself made in early November 2010, both on broadcast television in the United States and also in print in his memoirs that were published also at the end of2010, in which he, without any apology, admits that he authorized specifically the waterboarding of several identified individuals in particular cases."
Sunday NY TimesProtest Threats in Geneva Derail Bush's Planned Visit
by James Risen
Washington (p. 21) . . . As a result international human rights groups, including Amnesty International, seized on the scheduled visit to petition the Swiss authorities to open an investigation of Mr. Bush while he was in the country. The groups argue the he had admitted to torture and thus could be prosecuted in Switzerland and other countries that have signed on to the international convention banning torture. . . . In 2009, a Spanish court began a criminal investigation of six former administration officials, on grounds that they had violated international law in connection with Guantanamo Bay.. The Obama Administration . . . pressured the Spanish government to make sure the case was derailed according to State Department cables made public by anti secrecy group Wikileaks. As early as 2005, . . . Rumsfeld, faced the threat of war crimes prosecution in Germany over human rights abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. (paraphrasing) Germany decided not to prosecute Rumsfeld when Rumsfeld threatened not to attend an international defense conference scheduled in Munich.

The Magnetic North
by Sara Wheeler
Farrar, Straus & Givoux
NY Times Reviewer and PBS "Globe Trekker"
NY Times Book Review 2/6, Pg. 9
. . . "take a close look at the recent history of the interconnected lands that make up the Arctic and you'll also find a dumping ground, ravaged and exploited cultures and a poorly regulated zone in which humanity's worst instincts have been indulged. This distressing reality and the enduring glimpses of beauty within it, is what . . . Wheeler's new book . . . is all about.
She completes her Arctic circum-navigation at the medieval Solovki monastery, a perch beyond the beyond in Russia and where, in 1923, Red Guards threw out the monks after a 500 year stint and setup a gruesome template for the forced-labor gulag system. "From the one cancer cell in that White Sea outpost, a tumor spread all over Russia", as Wheeler paraphrases Solzhenitsyn. . . . Joining a flow of pilgrims, wheeler ventures to this hermitage where, her guide says,
"faith triumphs over death."
The monks have returned and with them, "a kind of humanity that eluded articulation," but one that Wheeler sensed and sifted for all over the Arctic. "The spirit lived in the quiet chants and the muttered prayers; they plucked new life out of death, as they always had," she writes. "Just as dignified integrity outlasted cultural destruction among the Inuit, a sense of quiet redemption lived on amongst the boneyards of Stalin's White Sea camp. It was a good place to end."
