Thomas Weller sows seeds of kindness on the freeways of San Diego, California. A mechanic by training, Weller stops to help stranded motorists with flat tires, overheated engines and other roadside crises. Ask him why he does this, and he will hand you a card that reads: "Assisting you has been my pleasure. I ask for no payment other than for you to pass on the favor by helping someone else in distress that you may encounter."

"You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path."
- Steve Jobs
"We are an impossibility in an impossible universe."

Have excessive rules and red tape made us all criminals? John Stossel argues that America has become a country where no one can know what is legal.
Kids who open lemonade stands are now shut down by police. Stossel tries to open a lemonade stand legally in NYC. That was quite an adventure. It takes 65 days to get permission from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
With government adding 80,000 pages of rules and regulations every year, it's no surprise that regular people break laws without even trying. 'Illegal Everything' exposes the government's agenda to criminalize nearly every single person.

Do you want to understand how the global financial crisis was caused but get confused by differing opinons? This film will take you through the history of the money markets and financial dergulation in the USA, Europe, and Asia, describe what happened in Iceland and explain how once trusted (and regulated) institutions began to speculate on the markets to make vast sums of money. Believe us, this is not a boring documentary but a fascinating insight into the history of the 20th and 21st century.
2010 Oscar Winner for Best Documentary, 'Inside Job' provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.
If we understand the role of money, we understand much of what shapes the world we live in. Knowledge is power.

Follow Geoff Lawton as he shows us around a beautiful and amazing urban garden. An example of permaculture design is used throughout the small city patch, which feels like a mini forest as we are lead through the various areas. Each aspect of the garden has many functions. There are edible plants for the grower with zero food miles, a place to reuse waste from the kitchen by creating compost and a beautiful garden that can be seen from within the home. Featured in the well planned design is a herb garden that enables picking from any angle. There are raised pots attached to the wall, which makes use of the shadiest area of the garden while still allowing the plants to get sunlight and varying heights of plants which means no space is left unused.

Rupert Sheldrake is a fascinating member of the scientific world. The video below is of his TED talk where he covers “The Science Delusion.” This TED talk was controversially banned by the TED community after being aired.
If you have studied any area of science on your own or in school, you may have noticed or have come across the fact that there are many differing beliefs in the scientific world. While this statement seems impossible given that science is supposed to be based on evidence which produces theory, it is a delusion not to realize that much of what is strictly believed in the scientific world is only believed due to the common acceptance that is put into mainstream ideas — much like what takes place within religion. That is not to say that there aren’t amazing scientists out there coming up with profound findings and adding powerful contributions to all fields, it’s to bring light to the fact that in a mainstream sense one could say science is “stuck” or more accurately put, we have put a freeze on certain areas of science.
How can science be stuck? You are missing the point of science! Science is not a thing its a method!
Rupert Sheldrake outlines 10 dogmas he has found to exist within mainstream science today. He states that when you look at each of these scientifically, you see that they are not actually true.
1. Nature is mechanical or machine like
2. All matter is unconscious
3. The laws or constants of nature are fixed
4. The total amount of matter and energy is always the same
5. Nature is purposeless
6. Biological heredity is material
7. Memories are stored inside your brain
8. Your mind is inside your head
9. Psychic phenomena like telepathy is not possible
10. Mechanistic medicine is the only kind that works
