Hindu Christian Faqir:Modern Monks, Global Christianity, and Indian Sainthood Timothy S. Dobe
This is a work on contrasting approaches to the issue of whaling. One based on Western norms, which have been widely adapted as universal juxtaposed against an exceptional view on the issue, as symbolized by Japan. Specifically the study will look at the case of whaling in the Antarctic (Australia v. Japan: New Zealand intervening) which was contested by Australia against Japan, contending that Japan´s whaling programe in the Antarctic (JARPA II) was not within the provisions of Article VIII, paragraph 1, of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling. After a brief outline on the history of whaling in these contesting nations, I will approach the subject of whaling as being more cultural than territorial. This is to see how whaling, from a position of great importance in the 19th century has declined in 20th century, and how a global emergence of environmental norms were successful to bring sea change in the attitude towards whaling. It will look at cultural attitudes to whaling in Australia and Japan outlook. Finally it will look at what the decision means for the whaling industry currently confined to three countries, Iceland, Norway and Japan.

We are not alone. And we never have been.... For years we´ve been taught that human progress has been a long, slow climb from the primordial ooze to hunter-gatherers to empires. But what if that´s only part of the story? Best-selling author and legendary conspiracy researcher Jim Marrs, who has investigated the recent financial crisis, the JFK assassination, and the national socialist takeover of America, now takes on his biggest subject: the history of mankind. Offering mind-blowing information that will radically alter the way we think about the world and our place in it, Marrs goes beyond the revelations of his classic Alien Agenda, interweaving science and authentic archaeological finds with provocative speculation to show how human civilization may have originated with nonhumans who visited Earth eons ago...and may still be here today. Our Occulted History overturns conventional knowledge and beliefs, presenting compelling evidence that the Earth once hosted prehistoric civilizations using technologies that very well may have surpassed our own. Sound unbelievable? Just a few hundred years ago, so was the concept that the Earth revolved around the sun. Marrs sifts through the historical, scientific, and cultural record, showing how numerous ancient texts and tablets tell of visitors from the stars colonizing the earth. From the flying vimanas of the Hindu Vedic literature and the flying shields reported by the Romans to the mysterious airships of the 1800s and the UFOs of today, he argues that someone other than us is still present on this planet. But are these visitors simply observers - or do they play a much more active and controlling role? Jim Marrs raises this shocking question and more in the provocative and persuasive Our Occulted History. The truth is out there...and in here. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Courvoisier.
