On November 1, Kate Zhou (Professor of Political Science at the University of Hawaii at Manoa) discussed what is arguably one of the most important of revolutions in modern Chinese history: the information revolution.

REVIEWS AND OPINIONS - How Gloria Steinem's CIA Role Was Censored
(Like Barack Obama, Feminist Gloria Steinem is a CIA asset tasked with subverting the United States in the interests of Illuminati banker world government. This article confirms that the "women's movement" is a psy-op; and we can infer that this is also true of "gay rights."  Essentially, the Illuminati is using  psychological warfare techniques against the domestic population. Like Barack Obama, Steinem came from a dysfunctional Jewish family and saw collaboration and treason as the only path to personal advancement.)

�This in turn requires of us that we risk the difficult task of continuing to speak vulnerably and personally about our own life and the lives of other women, while rejecting tendencies toward victimization, bitterness, self-pity, or self-indulgence. To unveil the damage caused by systemized cruelty, stultification, indifference, and daily denials of one�s humanity is itself a painful and dangerous act; to do so while refusing to become obsessed with the atrocities committed against one�s self and one�s people is an even more arduous challenge.� Robin Morgan industry trends, business articles and survey research

Pitching softballs to only one team?
whether the newsroom knows it or not, raises some interesting questions about what happens when religious liberty — specifically freedom of association — clashes with claims of gay rights. But it’s hard to tell. You see, there are just too many gaps and unanswered questions in this report.

Before we look at the many questions raised by this story, including issues of balance and accuracy, here is how the conflict is framed ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
10 Reasons I'm Throwing My Hat in the Ring for Helen Thomas' Seat
There's been a lot of speculation about who's going to get the prime real estate in the White House press room that's been left vacant by Helen Thomas . CNN's Ed Henry thinks it should go to FOX News . Others say Bloomberg News wants it. Some have suggested it go to Ed Henry himself. I'd like to think that our press corps has more important things to think about than where they get to sit at the daily White House press briefing. Because, really, do questions get better answers from the Press Secretary depending on where the reporter is sitting in the room? I have to agree with Jon Stewart (as I often ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Social and Organizational Consequences of the Information Revolution
The first substantive session of the conference was devoted to a discussion of the social and organizational consequences of the transition into the information age. The speaker suggested that something we might reasonably call the information revolution has in fact been underway (at least in the industrialized world) for more than thirty years.

As a consequence of this rising information content, the returns to education are increasing, ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

How did the Neolithic Revolution change the human way of life ...
the neolithic revolution began when people discovered agriculture. Because of agriculture people could now farm instead of hunting and gathering.
