Celebration of the Senses Day


rainbow waterfall

Forget about the Monday blahs, the 24th marks a day to take it all in. With all your senses, enjoy life. See, hear, feel, smell, and touch the wonders of our world, which we should be good stewards of.

·         See a rainbow, splendid architecture or artwork.

·         Hear a rolling stream, great music, or a waterfall.

·         Smell great cooking, flowers, or nature after a brief rainfall.

·         Feel the touch of a kind  human hand.

·         Taste spices, your favorite foods, or take in some aromatherapy.

·         Treat your proprioceptor (sensory receptor which receives stimuli from within the body, especially one that responds to position and movement) senses to the excitement of a rollercoaster and laughter.

Avoid noise, sharp objects, taking a nasty fall, terrified screaming (like that in the 1990’s movie “Arachnophobia”), visions of deceased beached grey whales (over 90 along the Pacific Coast this year), rotten eggs and other spoiled foods.

Sustainable Gastronomy

sust gasro

A commitment of gastronomy towards the principles of sustainability include:

  • poverty reduction;
  • efficient use of resources;
  • environmental protection and climate change; and
  • the protection of cultural values, heritage and diversity.


The United Nations has designated June 18th as Sustainable Gastronomy Day. International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.


This is one of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals that are call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.

There are 17 goals (see: https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/).


They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.


The Five Principles of Sustainable Food and Agriculture

FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) has developed a common vision and an integrated approach to sustainability across agriculture, forestry and fisheries. This unified perspective – valid across all agricultural sectors and taking into account social, economic and environmental considerations – ensures the effectiveness of action on the ground and is underpinned by knowledge based on the best available science, and adaptation at community and country levels to ensure local relevance and applicability.

A common vision for sustainable food and agriculture must equally address social, economic and environmental dimensions to ensure sustainability.

The principles that can collectively guide the process of transition to greater sustainability are:

  1. Improving efficiency in the use of resources is crucial to sustainable agriculture.
  2. Sustainability requires direct action to conserve, protect and enhance natural resources.
  3. Agriculture that fails to protect and improve rural livelihoods and social well-being is unsustainable.
  4. Enhanced resilience of people, communities and ecosystems is key to sustainable agriculture.
  5. Sustainable food and agriculture may require responsible and effective governance mechanisms.


“Sustainable Gastronomy Day” emphasizes the need to focus the world’s attention on the role that sustainable gastronomy can play. It also reaffirms that all cultures and civilizations are contributors and crucial enablers of sustainable development.

The UN General Assembly adopted on 21 December 2016 its resolution A/RES/71/246 and designated 18 June as an international observance, Sustainable Gastronomy Day.

The decision acknowledges gastronomy as a cultural expression related to the natural and cultural diversity of the world.

Sustainable gastronomy can play a role due to its interlinkages with the three dimensions of sustainable development, in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by promoting:

  • agricultural development;
  • food security;
  • nutrition;
  • sustainable food production; and
  • conservation of biodiversity.


Origin Labelling of Food

Food products linked to their place of origin are economically and socially beneficial to rural areas and promote sustainable development, boasting an annual trade value of over $50 billion worldwide. Such products have specific characteristics, qualities or reputations stemming from their geographical origin.

The study Strengthening sustainable food systems through geographical indications by the FAO and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) analyses the economic impact of Geographical Indication registration in nine case studies:

  • Coffee (Colombia)
  • Darjeeling tea (India)
  • Futog cabbage (Serbia)
  • Kona coffee (United States)
  • Manchego cheese (Spain)
  • Penja pepper (Cameroon)
  • Taliouine saffron (Morocco)
  • Tête de Moine cheese (Switzerland)
  • Vale dos Vinhedos wine (Brazil)

The registration of products linked to their place of origin has implications running far deeper than economic gains alone. Local producers and processors at the center of the registration process help make food systems more inclusive and more efficient. Together, producers develop the product specifications, and promote and protect the origin label. The creation of such labels also stimulates public-private sector dialogue as public authorities are often closely associated with the registration and certification process.

Mental Health Day 2018

On World Mental Health Day, Boehringer Ingelheim, is proud to support this annual milestone by showcasing a new way of thinking around the challenges of CNS research.  Launching this week, our comprehensive interactive information map showcases how our CNS team is committed to taking bold steps in their CNS research. By starting with how brain circuits malfunction and investigating these pathways, our aim is to alleviate the resulting symptoms that negatively impact on the daily lives of millions of people affected by mental illness: from memory loss, lack of motivation to cognitive impairment, we are looking at these symptoms.



As a company, we actively support the annual World Mental Health Day, to raise awareness of the burden many people face around the world and because we believe, each of us can contribute to ensure that people dealing with problems concerning mental health can live better lives with dignity. And: even if there are setbacks from time to time, our Commitment Never Stops.

Our information platform is designed for everyone and aims to:

  • deliver fast facts and figures on mental illness and brain disorders and the vital symptoms of these conditions
  • allow the user to dive as deep as he/she likes
  • explain personal experiences from people suffering from mental health symptoms
  • showcase our neurobiological scientific research to improve our understanding of the brain and ultimately, find effective solutions for brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia or major depressive disorder
  • explain the latest brain circuit research to find not only pharmaceutical solutions, but also how we are exploring ways to improve mental health through brain training and other innovative non-pharmacological treatments
  • show how our collaborations with leading researchers across the globe can collectively combine efforts and achieve results.

Five Facts We Have Learned from the Kavanaugh Proceedings

What truths the Kavanaugh investigation and confirmation process has revealed:

  1. Kavanaugh’s confirmation proves once again that the courts, especially the Supreme Court, are political.

One of the dominant myths of our political culture holds that the courts are nonpartisan. As Chief Justice John Roberts declared by way of an analogy to the role of baseball umpires in the “job” of judges “is to call balls and strikes and not to pitch or bat.”

The myth of judicial impartiality dates back to the earliest days of the republic, more than two centuries before Roberts was elevated to the court. Writing in 1788 on the “Judiciary Department” during the debates on the ratification of the Constitution, Alexander Hamilton described the proposed judicial branch of government in Federalist Paper No. 78 thusly:

Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them.

The judiciary … has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment…

Hamilton went on in No. 78 to advocate for lifetime judicial tenure so as to ensure the “independence of the judges,” which he reasoned “is requisite to guard the Constitution and the rights of individuals.”

These are fine words, penned by one of the most gifted of the Founding Fathers. Believing in them is essential to accepting the court’s legitimacy.

Sadly, in practice, the country has only occasionally lived up to Hamilton’s lofty ideals. Armed with the power of judicial review—the authority to declare acts of the executive, Congress and the states unconstitutional (or conversely, to uphold them), established by Marbury v. Madison in 1803—the Supreme Court has assumed enormous political power.

According to a joint analysis prepared by the Congressional Research Service and the Library of Congress, the high court had declared 182 acts of Congress and 1094 state statutes and ordinances unconstitutional as of Aug. 26, 2017. In addition, the court had overruled, in whole or in part, 236 of its prior decisions. The analysis did not include an aggregate tally of the number of presidential executive orders the court had nixed.

In and of itself, power is neither good nor evil. The issue, always, is how power is wielded.

In its finest moments, the court has exercised the power of judicial review on behalf of minorities, the weak and the disenfranchised. In its Brown v. Board of Education ruling in 1954, for example, the court repudiated the doctrine of “separate but equal” in public schools. In 1973, it recognized the right of women to have abortions in Roe v. Wade. In 2015, in Obergefell v. Hodges, it invalidated state prohibitions on same-sex marriage.

More commonly, however, the court has wielded its power to further the aims and interests of dominant elites. To cite just five examples from the distant and recent past: In 1857’s Dred Scott v. Sandford, the court nullified the Missouri Compromise of 1820, holding that African-Americans could never become U.S. citizens. In 1894, in Plessy v. Ferguson, it upheld the “separate but equal” doctrine ultimately overturned in Brown. In 2010, in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the court opened the floodgates to unlimited campaign spending. Five years ago, it gutted the Voting Rights Act in Shelby County v. Holder. And earlier this year, it upheld the president’s Muslim travel ban in Trump v. Hawaii.

It’s small wonder, then, that presidents in every era have attempted to stack the bench with justices who share their ideological biases. Kavanaugh’s nomination is by no means the first to expose the ugly partisan underbelly of the process.

We’ve been here before, and not long ago. In 1969 and 1970, respectively, the Senate rejected Nixon nominees Clement Haynsworth and G. Harold Carswell because of their regressive views on segregation and civil rights. In 1987, the Senate turned aside Robert Bork, one of the chief architects of the legal theory of “originalism,” who in 1973 as solicitor general fired special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox in the infamous “Saturday Night Massacre.” In 1991, the Senate barely confirmed Clarence Thomas in the face of sexual harassment allegations brought by law professor Anita Hill and several other women.

In Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump selected a longtime GOP operative, who before his initial appointment as a district court judge in 2004 had worked as Whitewater independent counsel Ken Starr’s right-hand assistant, helping to draft the 1998 report to Congress that led to the impeachment of President Clinton. Following his stint with Starr, he joined George W. Bush’s White House, eventually becoming the president’s staff secretary. Since his elevation to the Court of Appeals in 2006, he has amassed a record that shows extreme hostility to the rights of consumers, voters, women, the LGBTQ community, workers and immigrants.

Even more attractive to Trump are Kavanaugh’s expansive views on presidential prerogatives and powers. In a 2009 article for the Minnesota Law Review, in an apparent about-face from his service on Starr’s legal team, Kavanaugh argued that sitting presidents should be immune from both civil suits and criminal prosecutions. Who better than Kavanaugh to protect Trump against special counsel Robert Mueller should proceedings involving the Russia investigation reach the Supreme Court?

Any pretense that Kavanaugh would bring the kind of independence and measured demeanor to the high court envisioned by Hamilton was laid to rest on Sept. 27, when he appeared before the judiciary committee to rebut the allegations of attempted rape lodged by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Red-faced, lips curled into an angry snarl, he barked out an unhinged conspiracy theory worthy of Alex Jones or Rush Limbaugh:

“This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons, and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups.”

The remarks prompted The New York Times to publish an open letter signed by over 2,400 law professors, announcing their opposition to Kavanaugh. “Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” the letter asserted, “displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of this land.”

The Republican-controlled Senate, willing to consolidate political power at all cost, disregarded the letter.

number diversion

  1. Kavanaugh’s confirmation signals the triumph of a judicial counterrevolution.

Kavanaugh’s confirmation represents the culmination of a multi-decade effort by the most revanchist sectors of the right to seize control of the justice system and neutralize the use of law as an instrument of progressive social and economic reform.

If the rise of the right in Trump’s America has established anything, it is that constitutional norms are fragile. Today’s political fringe is tomorrow’s ruling bloc.

  1. For the time being, white male privilege has trumped the rights of women.

Trump and his enablers will eventually pay a heavy price for placing Kavanaugh on the court and, more generally, demeaning women and scapegoating minorities. The only question is when.

  1. Elections matter.

In an unusual display of honesty, the Trump Administration has revealed their political intentions.

The right understands the critical importance of the courts. The left doesn’t. That will have to change if the conservative counterrevolution is ever to be defeated.

  1. If the Democrats take back the House, Kavanaugh will face further investigations and possible impeachment.

David Dailey switched from the Republican party in 1972 when he lived in Indiana. David recently wrote to a close friend that at I.U. I learned about equality, history, consumerism, science, the environment, and psychiatry. Our president is sick. Most of my 4,000+ FB contacts are either upset or resigned to this Supreme Court thang. I’m glad that I have no case headed to the Court and will not live much longer. My daughter’s generation will have to figure out how to survive. My immediate prayer is that POTUS and Justices K. and Thomas will be impeached by the House of Representatives in 2019. If we are to believe social media, we are headed to another revolution… even POTUS is threatening violence if things don’t turn out his way.

Double Dare Appeals to POTUS but not US

Moral of the Story: Do NOT vote for Judge Brett Kavanaugh

This evening, Sept. 27, 2018, the world is witnessing the in-justice-like behavior of Trump’s nominee. Ironically, in our democratic society we cannot vote.

Many of us in the US are praying that Senators Flake (Arizona), Sen. Sasse (Nebraska), Senators from Alaska (representing native USA tribes), New England (where consumer rights are threatened), Missouri, Montana, Indiana, and others cannot consent to having such an extreme political law person on the high court.

Kavanaugh showed no empathy for sexual abusive behavior of victims.

Brett’s temperament is wrong for any American judge – let alone allow him to practice law on the Supreme Court.
