There are now vaccines and better methods of treatment. Cases or ebola are down, survivorship is up. Despite the fact that both your father and mine died of cancer, even there survivorship is much higher than it used to be, and slowly increasing as time passes. Some 12 years ago I survived cancer. If it had been 20 years earlier I would not be posting this message today.
What cancer did you have?
Concerning diseases spread by mosquitoes, I'm a bit pessimistic, because the effects of climate change will allow some species to go where they were not able to go before. Before 2008 there was no tiger mosquito in France.
For example, I was in the South of France this summer (actually somewhere between Lyon and Marseille), and I stumbled upon a tiger mosquito (I killed him so I was able to check that). I had never seen one before. some users of the forum like you, Maher or Vasudev probably know it already. They need warm climates but they are unable to live in the desert. With warmer Winters, they are rapidly spreading to Northern Europe and Northern America.

If the US has soldiers in Syria, it's mainly because the region has oil. The United States is not intervening to liberate Palestine. It's not intervening in the African dictatorships like Mozambique or Eritrea either.

MAINLY?? How about ONLY? Oil also is the reason the US and others rushed to the defense of Kuwait in 1991, and yet a few years later the world stood idly by and watched nearly 800,000 people massacred in Rwanda. No oil, only innocent "niggers" who, in their view, probably aren't even human.

This increased risk that we face, and the ways society and individuals can work together to reduce that risk, are explained to the public through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika. Moving across the globe, we meet doctors, disease detectives and everyday people who have stepped into the horror of an epidemic and emerged deeply changed. Epidemics bring out the best and worst of human behavior, with effects reaching far beyond the tolls of sickness and death.

I haven't seen the movie but I do know the situation with epidemics is not as bad as it seems, and improving. Back in the 1980's HIV was a death sentence. Today that's no longer the case. A few years ago we were helpless against ebola. There are now vaccines and better methods of treatment. Cases or ebola are down, survivorship is up. Despite the fact that both your father and mine died of cancer, even there survivorship is much higher than it used to be, and slowly increasing as time passes. Some 12 years ago I survived cancer.

But there is never a perfect scenario to change, unfortunately.
The French Revolution is a great example to that.

Naturally I agree with what you posted. I'd just like to add the fact that, as you say, there are many times when "change" takes place and people end up in a far worse situation than the one that preceded it. Examples are my native Cuba, Iran, Nicaragua and of course Afghanistan. I am fearful this might also happen in Syria. We all know Assad and Putin are bad. Unfortunately many of their enemies are much worse.

Maybe both of us are too old to fight with guns and machetes anyway. But without violence, will there be any change?
We aren't too old to fight with weapons.
Personally, I prefer to live a peaceful life till the last heartbeat.
I wish that I never have to use a firearm or any other means whether in self-defense or whatever to injure or kill anyone.
Violence should always be the last resort, even when defending one's self.
Smart negotiations could be enough 'sometimes' to fend off enemies.
But there is never a perfect scenario to change, unfortunately.
The French Revolution is a great example to that.

Lately, I released a lot of game repacks. Concerning Bring to light, The conjuring house or Slender, I didn't test any of them at all. If one of these games is tedious, or if one of them is excellent, feel free to give your views, so that we can know if it's useful to leave them on the forum.

I was talking about the best Jihad, a word of justice or righteousness in the face of tyrants. Something like the "yellow vest" movement.

p.s. "They live" "The Matrix" and "V for Vendetta" were always on my top 10 list of best movies.
Actually, I didn't really like The Matrix, even if I put a streaming link for this movie a few weeks ago.

Tonight, a few new videos are available.


The yellow vests are out for the 10th consecutive weekend of protests.

This time, it’s not IAM, it is the rap of Melenchon, in French with English subtitles.

I remember that I saw him in the street in front of the Bnp bank, near the Guy Moquet metro station in Paris in June 2017, while he was holding a conference.

A short video about giant tarantulas.

Note that tarantulas are not the deadliest predator. Against all odds, it is the mosquito.

Well, I want to add a few things.
If so many interesting photos are available on the forum, it’s partly due to my father. And you have to thank him.
In this post, it’s him, during a party for his 70th birthday in July, 5 months before his death. He’s not receiving the Pulitzer price, just a gift.
http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=9764.msg29883#msg29883
For example, it was he who wanted to visit the Invalides. He already knew this museum because he was very cultured.   
http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=2283.msg29306#msg29306 (I'm still planning to add some comments later)
Maybe some of you know the battle of the bridge of Arcole.
In front of this model, he told me that the French army was far outnumbered by the Austrian forces.

But Napoleon Bonaparte decided to lead his troops over the bridge of Arcole: He ran to the bridge to make another effort (the first time Augereau failed and later Napoleon would say “The  marshal had long since ceased to be a soldier; his courage, his first virtues, had raised him very high out of the crowd"), then seized a flag, brought back his troops, rushed toward the enemy between the bullets and screamed “soldiers, follow your general !”
For three days the positions of Arcole were subjected to a bloody struggle; but at last the skill of the maneuvers of Bonaparte prevailed, and the Austrian general withdrew in a disorderly fashion to Montebello after losing twelve thousand soldiers and six thousand prisoners.

We want your soul – by Mr Mondialisation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDiIxPO_r6M



Deep inside, you always knew !
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnPWAd_M1_c

Being a slave to the machine or system is relative.
I don't claim to be innocent of that, as corrupt civilization took over my soul till a breaking point came through the Quran to be truthful.
Since then I've been dangling below and above 50% 'slave' to the system.
I pray to be free completely one day. That's the personal "inner self Jihad" that we should all take up no matter what our beliefs are.
BTW, before, you commented on one of my youtube videos saying that I said "Jihad".

Tonight, the movie Unseen enemy is available on the forum.

Unseen Enemy is an essential exploration of reasons 21st-century populations are experiencing a rash of diseases that were once only outbreaks, but have now become full-blown epidemics. This increased risk that we face, and the ways society and individuals can work together to reduce that risk, are explained to the public through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika. Moving across the globe, we meet doctors, disease detectives and everyday people who have stepped into the horror of an epidemic and emerged deeply changed.

Maybe some of you heard of the book Les Misérables, a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. The novel is also referred to as The Wretched, The Miserable Ones, The Poor Ones... Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, particularly the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption.
