Coumadin In Canada

Seeking level heads and open minds in the midst of the media frenzy

http://johnmcnally54.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/blue-sky.jpg Another beautiful day in Southern California. I got up this morning, coumadin in canada went to the Farmer’s market, coumadin in canada bought my produce, coumadin in canada had a weak moment and bought a cinnamon roll and croissant at the donut shop and headed home. I unloaded everything into my refrigerator and headed to the computer, coumadin in canada logged into Facebook where I viewed more information posted on the latest situation involving the alleged “Oslo Killer”. My mind reeled from all the allegations, coumadin in canada assumptions and accusations so rapidly being printed and presumed apparently as fact, coumadin in canada so soon after the tragedy occurred. I was impressed, coumadin in canada although unfortunately not in a positive sense, coumadin in canada at the number of  individuals, coumadin in canada however well meaning, coumadin in canada who were consuming and assuming information as being the last word on the event that transpired Friday. As the saying goes, coumadin in canada “you get what you pay for”.   There is another saying as well.  “Insanity is doing (or believing) the same things over and over again and expecting different results”. Over the years, coumadin in canada I’ve sought to better understand historical events and situations as best I can, coumadin in canada and moreover sought to be as objective as possible, coumadin in canada in  observing how the media reports and covers events. For most of us who have taken Media Communications and History courses, coumadin in canada we probably, coumadin in canada at one time or another, coumadin in canada were schooled in the history or science of propaganda/media manipulation and how that has played a role in the media and the information we receive via television or print journalism. What is interesting is while many of us are aware and knowledgeable of such propagandizing of information, coumadin in canada we seem to have a sort of disconnect when it comes to applying such discernment to the information we receive daily. We seem to readily assume the information we are receiving as being factually sound because it is coming from a television or from a ‘reputable’ newspaper. We seem to fail to realize that such venues are where propaganda essentially originates and impacts us the most. When you include the fact that most, coumadin in canada if not all information outlets are sponsored by various products, coumadin in canada industries, coumadin in canada and Foundations with vested interests and agendas that are perhaps not made aware to the public at large. As such, coumadin in canada one could say such media outlets at the very least are largely influenced by those who sponsor or more importantly, coumadin in canada finance them. Back to the “Oslo Killer”, coumadin in canada I originally read about the tragedy like most of us probably - via the internet. Essentially all of the information I read “confirmed” an attack was made by a Norwegian man, coumadin in canada Anders Breivik, coumadin in canada who was pretty immediately characterized as a “radical, coumadin in canada right winged Christian extremist” (even though now there is information contradicting such information). I have no idea who this person is of course. What interested me was, coumadin in canada like other accused persons by the media in past events, coumadin in canada the immediate characterization and evaluation, coumadin in canada along again, coumadin in canada with the religious affiliation. Perhaps it’s possible and yet it also seems to accuse an individual before there is an opportunity for more information to come forward, coumadin in canada as what seems to be occurring in this case. It seems, coumadin in canada that like other situations and events, coumadin in canada there is more to this event than this one individual who is presently monopolizing the media spotlight. There is also evidence now that some of the information received about this person was obtained by a potentially fraudulent Facebook account. I think for most of us as Facebook users, coumadin in canada we are aware from our own experience and the experience of others, coumadin in canada the vulnerabilities, coumadin in canada the ease in which hacking, coumadin in canada wall manipulations ommissions and additions can occur, coumadin in canada so I don’t see how a Facebook account can be adequately leveled as a legitimate source with it’s ease of being penetrated by outsiders.  I will say it's interesting that the posts and comments I've made regarding the Oslo attack are not posting on my wall for some strange reason. Coumadin in canada   Censorship perhaps?  Why is this important? Well I think the importance speaks for itself really. If the means are pretty easily available to alter, coumadin in canada delete, coumadin in canada add, coumadin in canada manipulate a Facebook account, coumadin in canada then the ability to create an image that isn’t accurate is also available. One of my Facebook “friends” who I don’t know personally posted an article “Anders Breivik - Profile of a Mass Murderer” from the Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jul/23/anders-behring-breivik-norway-attacks), coumadin in canada which caught my eye, coumadin in canada namely again, coumadin in canada in the immediacy of the article being published and written after such short time. How does one write such a profile on a suspect so rapidly? I responded to her post posing questions to her about the article , coumadin in canada one being how can we assume such accusations and information is accurate, coumadin in canada especially after the media initially claimed it was enacted by “Muslim terrorists”? We could then immediately assume such information was correct after they had been incorrect with the initial accusation not long before? One would think the media networks would be sensitive to unloading such information. On the contrary, coumadin in canada it seems they don’t have to learn from past error, coumadin in canada certainly as long as we continue to unconditionally accept the information they are delivering. What equally concerns and interests me now, coumadin in canada is the apparent transition from “Islamaphobia” to “Christianaphobia”.   Neither such “phobias” in my opinion create anything other than unecessary division and irrational fear. I just saw a post of an article by another Facebook “friend” ( a person prominent in the Palestinian activist world)  titled, coumadin in canada “Why we should worry about Right Wing Terror Attack like Norway’s in the US” by Frank Schafer. This is, coumadin in canada mind you, coumadin in canada two days after an attack has been enacted in Norway and what better thing to do than ignite more fear and anxiety over a situation still unfolding. I posted a response with information pertaining to the potential Facebook false information being promoted by various Media outlets and she deleted the post altogether. Now it would appear, coumadin in canada we should transfer our fear or at the least redirect more of our energy into fearing situations that are at the least out of our hands, coumadin in canada and again, coumadin in canada being perpetrated by accused individuals without even a trial or any verification? Does this sound logical to you? I unfortunately will say, coumadin in canada that there are individuals in the world creating harm and destruction.   It is sad and such a waste and tragedy that there are people who promote conflicts like these. I had no intention of getting religious in this article.   And I won’t really. However since many in the media seem intent on doing so, coumadin in canada it’s worth noting that those who truly are “Christian” or “Muslim” are following leaders and ideologies who are the anti-thesis of violence. Why is it both Christianity and Islam ideologies/labels continue to be used by the media when describing such crimes, coumadin in canada when in reality is has nothing to do with the events at hand, coumadin in canada or certainly the philosopies of both religions? Of course there is the reality, coumadin in canada that there are elements of organizations that have been corrupted by money, coumadin in canada power, coumadin in canada etc. This is true of all organizations unfortunately - that they have the power to be corrupted. However, coumadin in canada such individuals who might use Islam and Christianity in particular as fronts to divert from their agenda, coumadin in canada and additionally to pollute the perceptions we have of those religions or political affiliations are not Christian or Muslim at all. Additionally I don’t believe they are either “right wing” or “left wing”, coumadin in canada however we believe those descriptions to be defined. In reality we all are a combination of various beliefs and thought’s that would place us in either a “left wing” place or a “right wing” place depending on simply what we are discussing at the time, coumadin in canada and how we view such issues we are discussing. While I have no idea or concrete evidence how or why this event occurred, coumadin in canada the media seems to be ignoring or overlooking the issues that could also potentially play an important role in what occurred. While there is talk about radical “extremism”, coumadin in canada there seems to be very little talk regarding Foreign policy issues present and perhaps prevalent, coumadin in canada and while they may or may not pertain to the event, coumadin in canada it would seem such issues should be considered as well. The strained relations between Norway and Israel pertaining to the recent support by Norway of granting statehood to Palestine has been an recent subject in foreign publications. Coumadin in canada Additionally the decision by Norway to withdraw it’s military jets from Libya has been considered as well. I understand why people don’t want to cover situations namely regarding Israel.  Many covering such issues of that region have been bullied, coumadin in canada spied upon, coumadin in canada inaccurately/unfairly categorized, coumadin in canada some threatened are afraid of losing careers and livelihoods for writing stories criticizing Israel’s policies. There are many gifted, coumadin in canada good writers, coumadin in canada who for whatever reasons or perhaps ideological beliefs of their own seem to be overly selective in their coverage on this event. Unfortunately, coumadin in canada they seem more motivated towards writing pieces which potentially could promote divisions, coumadin in canada and fuel fires between entities than granting more accurate, coumadin in canada objective coverage of the events that took place. Coumadin in canada   I hope that will change. There is a saying, coumadin in canada “the truth needs no defense”. While I believe that to be true, coumadin in canada I also believe the defense of fully examining all information so the truth can be more accurately defined, coumadin in canada assessed and understood, coumadin in canada  is also true. Coumadin in canada I hope we might better realize and appreciate the value in knowing the truth, coumadin in canada  and that the future we and those living after us will have more appreciation of what is really important and healthy for all, coumadin in canada and experience less fear and needless wrong doing like what happened on Friday.
