Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay

(By Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai)

The legendary Sir Edmund Percival Hillary was a mountain climber and an explorer of the Antarctic. He was born on 20 July 1919 in Auckland, New Zealand and lived until the ripe old age of 88. Together with the Nepalese mountaineer Tenzing Norgay, he made history by being the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, 29,029 feet (8,848 metres) above sea level.

Although he became legendary for climbing Mount Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary described himself as “a small and rather lonely child” during his early years. Hillary grew up in a small village called Tuakau, where he attended Tuakau Primary School. During his childhood in New Zealand, Hillary’s father worked as a beekeeper, a profession that he would later pursue as well. On the other hand, his mother was a schoolteacher and wanted to ensure her son attended a good school in the city. So, Hillary travelled to Auckland Grammar School for his secondary education. As a child, he was shy and studious, often burying himself in books, but he soon grew into a lanky teenager, towering at 6 feet 5 inches.

At the age of 16, he discovered his love of snow and climbing during a school ski trip to Mount Ruapehu in Tongariro National Park. He also began climbing the Southern Alps of New Zealand while he was still in high school. Hillary’s first major climbing expedition was scaling Mount Ollivier, in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, at the age of 20. While at the University of Auckland, he studied mathematics and science but was also very active and joined outdoor clubs, which allowed him to develop his interest in climbing even further.

Despite having serious reservations, he was conscripted into the Royal New Zealand Air Force during World War II. During military service in the Solomon Islands, he suffered serious burn injuries in a boat accident and returned home to New Zealand. After World War II, he went back to mountain climbing and became determined to scale Mount Everest. It was then that Hillary and his brother Rex, following in the footsteps of their father, became beekeepers, which allowed them spare time to pursue mountain climbing during winter. Soon after, he joined a New Zealand party to the Himalayas and later that year, they joined a British reconnaissance expedition to climb the South Col, which is the sharp-edged notch or pass between Mount Everest and Mount Lhotse.

Together with the Nepalese mountaineer Tenzing Norgay, Sir Edmund Hillary made history by being the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world.

Following this, he received an invitation to join a team of mountaineers planning a historic climb up Mount Everest itself. In the spring of 1953, a base camp was established by the middle of May as a starting point for groups of mountaineers launching their expeditions up Mount Everest. After another pair of climbers failed to reach the top, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set out early on May 29 and were standing on the summit of Mount Everest by late morning. The two climbers shook hands in celebration and Norgay embraced his partner while Hillary took photographs.

After that, they searched for signs of George Mallory, a British climber lost on Everest in 1924. Just before leaving, Hillary planted a crucifix in the snow and Norgay, who was a Buddhist, made a food offering of chocolates. They spent approximately 15 minutes on the peak before beginning their descent. Hillary made other expeditions to the Everest region during the early 1960s but never again tried to conquer the summit of the mountain. His historic conquest of Everest was announced on the eve of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, and the new queen knighted Hillary when he travelled to London.

After achieving international fame as the first to climb Mount Everest, Hillary turned to exploration. From 1955 to 1958, he headed the New Zealand group in the British Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition, which was led by Vivian Fuchs (later knighted Sir Vivian Fuchs). Hillary finally reached the South Pole with a tractor on 4 January 1958, and wrote about his experience in the book, The Crossing of Antarctica in 1958 (co-authored with Fuchs) and No Latitude for Error in 1961.

During the Antarctic expedition of 1967, Hillary was among those who scaled Mount Herschel, 10,941 feet (3,335 metres) above sea level, for the first time. In 1968, he traversed the wild rivers of Nepal on a jet boat, and then in 1977, he led the first jet boat expedition up the River Ganges, all the way back to its source in the Himalayas. In 1985, Hillary and the famous astronaut Neil Armstrong flew a small twin-engine plane to the North Pole, a feat that cemented Hillary in the history books as the first person to stand on both poles and the summit of Everest, which became known as the “third pole.”

His autobiography, Nothing Venture, Nothing Win, that detailed his expeditions and personal life was published in 1975, in which he said that he never anticipated the acclaim that would follow his historic ascent to the summit of Everest. From 1985 to 1988, he served as New Zealand’s High Commissioner to India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Over the years, he was awarded numerous honours, including the Order of the Garter in 1995.

Despite the many accolades and honours over the years, Hillary remained humble and unassuming. His main interest was the welfare of the Himalayan people of Nepal, especially the Sherpas — the community that Tenzing Norgay belonged to. With this in mind, he established the Himalayan Trust in 1960 that was tasked with the building of schools, hospitals, and airfields. His dedication to the Sherpas lasted into his later years and was recognised in 2003 during the 50th anniversary celebration of his and Norgay’s ascent of Everest, when he was given honorary citizenship of Nepal.

Sir Edmund Hillary has been hailed as “New Zealand’s most trusted individual”, various geographic regions around the world bear his name, and the current five-dollar bill from New Zealand features his image. Time magazine listed him as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. He passed away on 11 January 2008 in Auckland. Flags were lowered to half-mast in mourning of his passing.

 

The Abominable Snowman

The term ‘abominable snowman’ was coined in 1921, the same year that Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury led the British Mount Everest reconnaissance expedition. He wrote about it in his book, Mount Everest The Reconnaissance, 1921, in which he related his experience at the crossing of Lhakpa La, 21,000 feet (6,400 metres) above sea level. There he found unusual footprints that he believed,

“…were probably caused by a large ‘loping’ grey wolf, which in the soft snow formed double tracks rather like those of a bare-footed man”.

He did however add that his Sherpa guides “at once volunteered that the tracks must be that of ‘The Wild Man of the Snows’, to which they gave the name ‘Metoh-kangmi’.” “Metoh” translates as “man-bear” and “Kang-mi” translates as “snowman”.

The ‘abominable snowman’ was born when Henry Newman, a longtime contributor to The Statesman in Calcutta, in which he wrote under the pen name of ‘Kim’, interviewed the porters of the Everest Reconnaissance expedition while they were returning to Darjeeling. Newman translated “metoh” as “filthy” and substituted it with the term “abominable”, perhaps out of artistic license. Thus, the abominable snowman was born and sparked the interest of mountain climbers and explorers of that time.

 

Search For the Yeti

Apart from his achievements as a climber and explorer, Sir Edmund Hillary is well-known in history as the first man who searched for the yeti, another name for the abominable snowman. In the 1950s, stories of hairy man-like creatures roaming the snowy peaks of the Himalayas were intensely popular and curiosity surrounding the abominable snowman was so widespread that Hillary was drawn to search for him.

A number of footprints were found, indicating that yeti-like creatures were active in remote places in Nepal, Tibet, and the surrounding region. Then in 1952, Hillary along with George Lowe discovered strange hair associated with the yeti on a high pass while in the mountains. In 1953, Hillary found yeti tracks in the Barun Khola range, and the following year, two British members of Hillary’s team uncovered yeti tracks down in the Choyang Valley.

Hillary’s trusted Sherpa friends even related their firsthand sightings of the man-sized yeti. The Sherpas of Nepal knew of several types of abominable snowmen that roamed the Himalayas. Whilst searching for the yeti, Hillary and his collaborator, Desmond Doig, noted that there were several unknown primates said to be living in the Himalayan region but had yet to be discovered by the scientific community. Among the several varieties of yeti, there was one called the ‘Nyalmo’. Hillary and Doig first came across the Nyalmo in north-central Nepal. They were said to be,

“giant-sized (up to twenty feet tall), manlike, hairy, and given to shaking giant pine trees in trials of strength while other Nyalmos sit around and clap their hands.”

Throughout the 1950s, Hillary was a keen supporter of the possibility of the existence of the yeti. Late in the 1960s, Sir Edmund Hillary, sponsored by the World Book encyclopedia company of Chicago, departed on his famous expedition to Nepal in pursuit of the yeti. During the expedition, he recovered a supposed yeti ‘scalp’ from Khumjung Monastery and brought it to the West for testing. Hillary explained,

“The scalp was in the house of a frightening old woman, believed to be a witch, in Khumjung. It has been in the possession of the village for 240 years. Unfortunately, the results indicated the scalp was manufactured from the skin of a serow, a goat-like Himalayan antelope.”

Since Hillary’s time until today, the yeti still evades explorers and mountain climbers, only offering quick eyewitness glimpses together with a steadily growing body of footprint evidence. Along with its North American cousin, the sasquatch, the yeti continues to inspire the imagination of countless bigfoot hunters and researchers around the world.

Video Description:
In the 1960s, Sir Edmund Hillary arrived in Europe with what was supposedly the scalp of a yeti from the village of Khumjung in Nepal. Though he had his doubts about its authenticity, he wanted his theories confirmed by scientists. The villagers of Khumjung held the scalp in high regard and thought of it as a good luck charm. Though this particular interview is conducted in French, Hillary was fortunate to have the questions translated into English. At the end of the interview is a drawing of what Hillary believed the yeti looked like.

 

Conclusion

Sir Edmund Hillary’s life story not only serves as a testament to the determination of the human mind to conquer what was once thought unconquerable – Mount Everest, and his compassion to help others — his works in bettering the lives of the Sherpas in the Himalayas, but also how the human imagination and search for truth can lead men to new discoveries.

Since Hillary’s time, the search for the yeti and other related creatures, such as bigfoot, has become a mainstream pursuit. Hillary’s preliminary discoveries have inspired a whole new generation of researchers and professors all over the world, including notable names such as Professor Jeff Meldrum from the United States of America and Dr Igor Burtsev from Russia, not forgetting countless generations of amateur yeti/bigfoot researchers and hunters who spend their lives searching for the elusive creatures. With the latest advances in forensic science and technology, many new discoveries continue to point towards the existence of the yeti or bigfoot, and perhaps one day soon will prove once and for all that the yeti really exists.

Yeti or bigfoot are well-accepted living creatures that are considered half-human and half-animal. To the Tibetans, Nepali, Bhutanese and people from all over the Himalayas, they are actually considered to be more of an animal, and there is no doubt of the existence of the yetis amongst these people. For many thousands of years people have seen them and there are many stories of these encounters. So, for the modern man, it may seem that this type of large humanoid creature perhaps does not exist, given that people are still unable to find ‘scientific’ proof of their existence. On the other hand, someone of Sir Edmund Hillary’s stature, reputation and fame has put the search for the yeti firmly on the map. No one ever doubted what Sir Edmund Hillary witnessed and recounted. So, the mystery continues since so many people, including of great stature, have seen it. Therefore, we can conclude that although Sir Edmund Hillary did in fact see something in the mountains, it was not a bear or an ape and could possibly well be a yeti of Himalayan folklore.

    There is an area near Lumbini, Nepal, they have sightings of Yeti for hundreds of years. So they have signages in the area with Yeti artwork to highlight this. Interesting. TR

    Curious about the legendary Yeti? Not sure what to believe? Here is an article that explores a range of sources, from folktales to newspaper reports, detailing sightings and encounters with the elusive creature, who has been a part of the very fabric of various Himalayan communities for thousands of years. Read about religious beliefs, myths, fables and stories by scholars and travellers alike, and realise that there is more to the Yeti than you previously thought.

    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake.

    Thank you, Pastor David, for this interesting sharing. Sir Edmund Yeti is a shining example of a true fearless explorer. A lifetime of determination and dedication towards causes that he believe deeply in without consideration for fame and wealth. May we too, can ignite that hidden passion in us and go all the way with what we believe in.

  14. Wai Meng Wan on Nov 19, 2017 at 2:06 am

    A joy to watch a good natured person become one of the first persons to scale the Everests. It is also quite rare of successful people to care for the welfare of people from the developing world like Nepal and that he took a deep interest into the Sherpas.

    Sir Edmund Hilary has much fame after his climbs up the Everest he does not need to mar his reputation, by indicating he saw a mythical creature like the Yeti. Yet he did so. He obviously believed the existence of Yeti, and mounted expeditions to search for it. Probably what he never expected was how determined Yetis were to make themselves hidden.

  15. Lim Han Nee on Nov 6, 2017 at 10:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this was most interesting post.

  16. Lim Han Nee on Nov 6, 2017 at 9:58 pm

    Sir Edmund Hillary made world history by being the first mountaineer to scale Mt Everest, the highest peak in the world, together with fellow Nepalese mountaineer Tenzin Norgay .
    This is a fine example of Hillary as a man of grit and determination.Hillary continued to show his zest for exploration by participating in exploration expeditions to the North and South Poles, and even the Ganges and the wild rivers in Nepal!

    Sir Edmund Hillary was also the first man to go in search of the yeti or Bigfoot. Hillary became fascinated with the Bigfoot upon hearing stories of first sightings by his close Sherpa friends. His search for the yeti and some preliminary findings have inspired a whole wave of research and study on the yeti. All this and new sightings point to a strong possibility of the yeti’s existence being proven to be real in the near future.

    Hillary will also be well-remembered for his devotion to bettering the lives of the Himalayan people of Nepal, particularly the Sherpas, Tenzin Norgay’s people.He established the Himalayan Trust which was tasked with the building of schools, hospitals, and airfield for these Himalayan people.He was recognized for this by his being awarded honorary citizenship of Nepal. The warm spirit of comradeship of their fathers appeared to
    have continued in the sons. Fifty years after the event, Peter Hillary and Jaming Tenzin Norgay together joined the expedition that successfully scaled Mt Everest, as their fathers had done before.

    Thank you for this post on Sir Edmund Hillary and yeti. It’s a good read and must read for those who are interested in Yeti, Snowman or Bigfoot. It was written in a simple way easy to understand yet highlighted what we can learn from Sir Edmund Hillary’s expedition and passion.

    From his story I learn not only the determination, persistency and believe in what he wishes to do to scale Mount Everest. Even he became famous and received many accolades and honours; he did not stop there. He continue to do things he is passionate of including helping to improve the welfare of Sherpas, the people he has close association with and sharing the same dreams with. With imagination, as the famous saying “will often carry us to worlds that never were…”

  19. Sharon Ong on Nov 2, 2017 at 3:33 pm

    One of Sir Edmund Hillary’s best quotes – It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

    His life story and feat conquering the highest mountain in the world serves as an inspiration of strength and true human grit. I remember reading about Sir Hillary’s story when I was a child and recalled about him seeing an abominable snowman aka yeti during his expedition. I was fascinated but initially did not connect Yeti to BigFoot until many years later. Am glad to be able to read more about BigFoot, Yeti and the like on Rinpoche’s blog. (It’s always good to have a variety of interests!) While many do not believe in BigFoot’s existence, I personally do believe that BigFoots do exist, just extremely shy and hence, prefers to hide away from humans. I also think Chewbacca in Star Wars is probably based on BigFoot. 🙂

    Thank you for the good read.

  20. Jacinta Goh on Nov 2, 2017 at 3:25 pm

    Although unfortunately the scalp couldn’t prove anything concrete but from taking the account of Sir Edmund Hillary’s statement, one can only believe what he has seen.

    Thank you Pastor David.

  21. Samfoonheei on Nov 2, 2017 at 2:04 pm

    I love to read articles on the legendary Sir Edmund Percival Hillary. Sir Edmund Hillary, the New Zealand mountaineer and explorer who with Tenzing Norgay, his Nepalese Sherpa guide been the first to reach the summit of Mt Everest.
    Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reported seeing large footprints while scaling Mount Everest. Follow by other expedition also discovered similar yeti-like footprints even a supposed yeti ‘scalp’ .A number of footprints were also found, indicating that yeti-like creatures were active in remote places in Nepal, Tibet, and the surrounding region. That’s sounds interesting but the scientific researcher had not discovered .
    He had a beautiful life story proving nothing is impossible if we make an effort to pursue our dreams .His determination to conquer what was once thought unconquerable – Mount Everest, and his compassion to help others. And to search for truth can lead men to new discoveries of yetis.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for these interesting article.

    As a kid growing up in the backwoods, we hear of Sir Edmund Hillary and his adventures up Mount Everest and the forsaken Antarctica.The adventures were made more exciting by the fact that it was in a very very cold place and gained our admiration for his bravery and adventurous spirit.

    Now, reading of his other works like bettering the very lives of the sherpas without whose help these expeditions up Mount Everest would not have been possible, is very heartwarming. He is a man of facts and objectives, and for him to come out say what he had seen up in the snowy mountains, must hold some water. Makes one sit up and take notice and believe in yetis or the more romantic version, the abominable snowman.

    Thank you for sharing about Sir Edmund Hillary and his adventures.

    Bentong is a town located in the western part of the Pahang.It is one of the towns which for the gains from tin mining had attracted the prominent Bentong entrepreneurs to Bentong in the Pre -WW11 era.
    Loke Yew has contributed greatly to the development of Bentong during tin mining era.We must not forget the contribution of these people even though they existed a century ago.Thank you for the interesting sharing of the early history and origin of Bentong town.

    In 2006, a sculpture of coloured papercutting art – Jiangwa la ma Meixiang qi (Jiangwa leads the horse while Meixiang rides) stood at the newly built Xunyi County Central Cultural Square. This sculpture showcased the great artistic charm of the regional Xunyi style of papercutting. The handcrafted piece originated from a native rural woman, Ku Shulan, who was born and raised in Xunyi County.

    Video games are electronic games played across a variety of different platforms like computers and smart phones. Some research questions I will consider are, ‘What makes video games violent?’, ‘If VVGs are harmful, to what extent are they harmful?’ and ‘Should VVGs face more or less rigorous regulations?’ One of my assumptions is that it is difficult to control variables in order to, with validity, link VVGs effects with harm to society. Another assumption is that the studies into VVGs will primarily focus on any negative influences rather than any positives.

    I will argue that because of how widespread and deep rooted in pop culture VVGs have become, society will inevitably be affected in some way, and therefore some regulation should be strongly considered. Furthermore, we should cautiously approach regulating VVGs as this topic is known to be sensitive to conflicting parties such as parents and children. However, there is a large range of uncontrolled factors in many of the published research studies on VVGs, and it is difficult to generalise many of their conclusions, as harmful to society. Therefore I will argue for the importance of understanding context when we examine VVGs and their effects. My aim in this essay is to highlight some complexities of the arguments surrounding VVGs and attempt to give a broader picture, and educate against the polarising views of hostility and dismissal often shown towards these games.

    This article will be looking at the issue of whether or not violent video games (VVGs) are harmful to society. Read more at http://bit.ly/2JdmUBk

    Now in the European Union (EU), all cosmetic products that are tested on animals are banned! It hasn’t taken full effect, but it has been implemented. The previous ban that was implemented in 2009 to stop animal testing, was also re-enforced so that no animals are allowed to be used even if it is to test on complex health effects such as cancer.

    I am very glad to hear this news… every year, millions of animals die and suffer for being used to test cosmetic products. It is terrible that for beauty, we support products that are tested on animals. There are newer technology that can test these cosmetics without the need of animals. The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) and the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) did a great job in pressuring the whole European Union to ban animal testing for cosmetics even at the risk of jeopardizing the cosmetic industry.

    I hope that the ban on animal testing will be fully implemented to all countries and for the ban to not only cover cosmetics, but for many other products such as in the medical field.

    Countries which are part of the EU are:

    Austria
    Belgium
    Bulgaria
    Cyprus
    Czech Republic
    Denmark
    Estonia
    Finland
    France
    Germany
    Greece
    Hungary
    Ireland
    Italy
    Latvia

    Malta
    Netherlands
    Poland
    Portugal
    Romania
    Slovakia
    Slovenia

    Congratulations to the EU for setting a good example to the world.

    Freedom and Jeff Freedom and I have been together 11 years this summer. She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken wings. Her left wing doesn’t open all the way even after surgery, it was broken in 4 places. She’s my baby.

    When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings were broken. She was emaciated and covered in lice. We made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I took her to the vet’s office. From then on, I was always around her. We had her in a huge dog carrier with the top off, and it was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to lay in. I used to sit and talk to her, urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay there looking at me with those big brown eyes. We also had to tube feed her for weeks.

    This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still couldn’t stand. It got to the point where the decision was made to euthanize her if she couldn’t stand in a week. You know you don’t want to cross that line between torture and rehab, and it looked like death was winning. She was going to be put down that Friday, and I was supposed to come in on that Thursday afternoon. I didn’t want to go to the center that Thursday, because I couldn’t bear the thought of her being euthanized; but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone was grinning from ear to ear. I went immediately back to her cage; and there she was, standing on her own, a big beautiful eagle. She was ready to live. I was just about in tears by then. That was a very good day.

    Say NO to Elephant-RIDING, say NO to using elephants for human entertainment in Circuises or Tourisms . . .

    Elephants that ”work” in Thailand and other tourist destinations have to go through a ritual called phajaan, or “crush”. It begins with the baby elephants (usually three to four years old) being taken from their mothers and placed in a small, wooden pen. To get them securely in the pen, these babies are beaten with bamboo, sticks with nails attached to the tip and bull hooks. Once in place, the crush lasts for roughly a week. During this time, they are beaten, bludgeoned, have hooks attached to their sensitive ears, and are deprived of food and water as well as sleep, all in the name of breaking ties with their mothers and becoming domesticated. While in the crush, through the infliction of pain, they learn how to accept riders, do circus tricks and paint. This is designed to break the animal’s spirit which it certainly achieves, often taking its sanity too.

    Used for centuries to domesticate wild elephants, this torture training method is still accepted as the only viable training method for elephant handlers and is used in almost every elephant attraction in Thailand.And, once they have their souls stomped out, they are simply vessels entertaining people. They are chained. They don’t eat enough.

    Like humans, elephants have the capability to form relationships and have emotions. But, not the elephants working for the tourists.

    People who visit Thailand — and other countries with elephant tourism — don’t realize the damage they cause these elephants when they support trekking camps, go to circuses or buy the paintings done by these creatures. Without knowing, they send a clear message to the elephant tourism industry that shows they support the torture these animals go through early in their life, as well as the horrific conditions they live in as cogs in the tourism wheel. Please never support this horrible practice, never ride an elephant. (Andres Grijalva)

    A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.



    This is her story of giving gratitude.

    A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her… a very dangerous proposition.

    One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

    They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

    When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

    The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

    May you be so fortunate …

    To be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

    And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this documentary of the oracle. I know of people taking trance of local deities or gods in Taoist tradition but I didn’t know Tibetan Buddhism has specially trained people taking trance of Buddhas.

    Since we cannot see or communicate with Buddhas directly, oracle becomes the best medium to connect us with Buddhas. The advice given by oracle who is taking trance of an enlightened being is definitely for our benefit as this is the motivation of a Buddha.

    We are lucky to have Rinpoche who introduced to us the Dorje Shugden oracle. We can go to Kechara Forest Retreat to pay homage to Dorje Shugden oracle statue if we don’t have the merits to have an audience with the oracle in person.

    After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from:It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!

    Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical. (http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/burlington_county_times_news/fda-some-chicken-may-have-small-amount-of-arsenic/article_0ecc5758-91f7-11e0-a572-001a4bcf6878.html)

    Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickens ended up in their meat. The fairy-tale excuse story we’ve all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There’s no scientific basis for making such a claim… it’s just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe.

    But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves (http://www.grist.org/food-safety/2011-06-08-fda-admits-supermarket-chickens-test-positive-for-arsenic). And what’s the name of this manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years? Pfizer, of course — the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children.

    Animals in the wild have to continually contend with the expansion of human civilization. Certain wild animals have learned to coexist and even thrive in urban settings, pigeons and raccoons being obvious examples.

    Well, subway goers in Moscow are becoming familiar with stray dogs. These dogs have become accustomed to using the subway system as a means to travel across Moscow, even managing to catch a nap along the way. The dogs hop on in the morning and travel to the city center where they spend the day begging for scraps. At the end of the day they get back on the subway and travel to the suburbs where they sleep in relative safety.

    The dogs have become experts at judging the length of time they need to stay on the train, and seem to work together to ensure that they exit the subway at the right stop.

    Scientists believe this phenomenon began after the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, and Russia’s new capitalists moved industrial complexes from the city center to the suburbs.

    Dr Andrei Poiarkov, of the Moscow Ecology and Evolution Institute, said: “These complexes were used by homeless dogs as shelters, so the dogs had to move together with their houses. Because the best scavenging for food is in the city center, the dogs had to learn how to travel on the subway – to get to the center in the morning, then back home in the evening, just like people.”

    New York (CNN) — Asked which school meals were their favorites, students at a public school in the New York borough of Queens don’t say chicken fingers or meatballs. Instead, they name rice and kidney beans, black bean quesadillas or tofu with Chinese noodles.

    “Whoever thought they would hear a third-grader saying that they liked tofu and Chinese noodles?” asked Dennis Walcott, New York City schools chancellor.

    Walcott was at the Active Learning Elementary School this week to celebrate its move to all-vegetarian meals five days a week. The school of nearly 400 students, from pre-kindergarten to third grade, was founded five years ago on the principle that a healthy lifestyle leads to strong academic achievement.

    “We decided on a vision where health and nutrition would be a part of educating the whole child,” school principal Bob Groff said.

    The school’s focus on healthier meals began three years ago when Groff noticed a majority of students were bringing their own vegetarian meals. The school went meatless three days a week about a year and a half ago. It also tested meals on a small group of students, gathering feedback and changing the menu accordingly.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
