Guest facilitator, Alexis McKenna, has a Ph.D. in Communications. Her special areas of interest are symbol systems, metaphors, stories and myths.

Tonight's film (U.S., 1996) is about a humble mechanic in a rural California town. On his 37th birthday, he celebrates at a pub with friends. When he steps outside, he observes a bright light in the sky that knocks him briefly unconscious. When he awakens, he has incredible intellectual powers. What has helped him tap into his potential? Through this film, we can explore the mysteries of human possibilities.

Tainted: Can California solve pot's pesticide problem? | The Cannifornian

The big difference will be the amount of pesticides in your weed. That’s because starting Jan. 2,  when California’s vast legal marijuana market opens, all cannabis must be tested — and most chemicals will be banned. Much of California’s cannabis is tainted, including the “medicinal” stuff. But soon state-sanctioned weed may become the greenest in the nation.

Monsanto, Bayer, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta defend their coming oligopoly (MON) (DD) (DOW) (SYT) | Quartz

Top executives from Bayer, Monsanto, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta today (Sept. 20) testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington, making a case for why federal regulators should approve the mega-mergers, which stand to fundamentally reorganize global agriculture. (Executives from the sixth company involved in the consolidation, China National Chemical Corp., declined an invitation to appear at the hearing.)

Electric car use by country | Wikipedia

Increasing adoption of electric vehicles around the world has in recent years been expanding rapidly. As of the end of 2016: Cumulative global sales of highway legal plug-in electric passenger cars and light utility vehicles achieved the 2 million unit milestone in December 2016, of which, 38% were sold in 2016.[1]. The 1 million milestone had only been reached in September 2016. Global sales of the light-duty plug-in vehicle segment achieved a 0.86% market share of total new car sales, up from 0.62% in 2015 and 0.38% in 2014.[3] The global ratio between all-electric cars (BEVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) was 61:39, up from 59:41 at the end of 2015. Cumulative sales of plug-in hybrids totaled almost 800,000 units. Despite their rapid growth, plug-in electric cars represented only 0.15% of the 1.4 billion motor vehicles on the world's roads, up from 0.1% in 2015.
