    Two opposing views: 1.Anthropologist Audrey Roberts works for Human Terrain System (HTS), a Pentagon program. Referring to the information produced by HTS scholars, she says, "If it's going to inform how targeting is done - whether that targeting is bad guys, development or governance - how our information is used is how it's going to be used. All I'm concerned about is pushing our information to as many soldiers as possible. The reality is there are people out there who are looking for bad guys to kill. I'd rather they did not operate in a vacuum 2. HTS ignores basic anthropological principles of ethics, such as voluntary informed consent, issues of secrecy, and doing no harm, among others. ... .The two highest ethical principles of anthropology are protection of the interests of studied populations, and their safety. All anthropological studies consequently are premised on the consent of the subject society. Clearly, the HTS anthropologists have thrown these ethical guidelines out the window These two paragraphs are extracts from this article http://www.truthout.org/051609Z?n

  • Does anyone know what the temperature and general weather conditions were in Bethlehem abot 2000 years ago?

    We tend to believe that the 'White Christmas' of the Northern Europeans and North Americans is the appropriate weather for celebrating Christmas. During the Sydney summers, for example, we have images of snowmen, and snow sleighs, to represent the season. But was it cold and snowing in Bethlehem at the time?
