I am working on off on a script to build up virtual machines on Ubuntu of various configurations. It'd be very nice to somewhere down the line have a test infrastructure built up and even have people contributing CI nodes to run our test suites.

phpbb as alternative to Blackboard Suite

Postby veerybird » Sun Sep 06, 2009 4:46 pm
I'd like to network with other phpbb deployers who use their boards for educational purposes.

I developed my current boards as an alternative to Blackboard Academic Suite 8 for colleagues and students. Our college division is in the progress of achieving total compliance with college policies for Blackboard. However, many of my division colleagues lack the pc/internet fluency required for setting up and managing a well-run Bb instructor's account. Also, Bb tends to keep instructors/classes as islands unto themselves, doesn't facilitate collaboration without going through IT channels, AFAIK.

I recently installed/configured/borrowed styles for/borrowed mods for a couple boards that would facilitate collaboration, i.e. tear down so many academic walls that divide us

Obama Adopts Codex Alimentarius

Remedies : Message: Obama Adopts Codex Alimentarius: Top Terrorist, Barack Obama signed the Codex Alimentarius Executive Order back in 2010 (see below), and it looks, from reading the following article, as if implementation is just around the corner. This would effectively OUTLAW Alternative Therapies, including the use of Vitamins and Herbal Remedies.

Obama Adopts UN Codex Alimentarius to Collaborate With Drug Corporations

Susanne Posel, Contributor
Activist Post

The US government will assist the pharmaceutical corporations in finding prescription drugs to treat new diseases.

The focus of this collaboration will identify new uses for drugs that have already been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There may be need for new human trials, putting the general public at a health risk. Engaging in experimental trials to classify specific compounds to be utilized for unintended purposes is highly dangerous.

Genetic engineering has led researchers to discover over 4,500 diseases that need pharmaceutical drugs to combat.
'We need to speed the pace at which we are turning discoveries into better health outcomes,' said Dr. Francis Collins, of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 'NIH looks forward to working with our partners in industry and academia to tackle an urgent need that is beyond the scope of any one organization or sector.'
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will begin working with Pfizer Inc, AstraZeneca Plc and Eli Lilly and Co. in agreements to create compounds to be made available for trial use in a planned project.
'Americans are eagerly awaiting the next generation of cures and treatments to help them live longer and healthier lives,' Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a statement. 'To accelerate our nation’s therapeutic development process, it is essential that we forge strong, innovative, and strategic partnerships across government, academia, and industry.'
The pharmaceutical corporations are able to manipulate the FDA because the regulatory agency does not conduct independent studies on trial results. They simply accept the findings of the drug companies on their own trials.

Currently, the vitamin industries, by order of the Codex Alimentarius (CA) are being attacked by the US government to justify the force outlawing of natural medicine use.

The CA is a creation of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The CA seeks to enforce international standards and codes on nations in a securitization of the world’s food supply.

By controlling the means of food production, transportation and distribution, the CA will ensure the standards set forth by the UN are the basis for all national legislation.

Obama signed Executive Order (EO), Establishing the National Prevention, Health Promotion and Public Health Council in 2010.

Through this EO, Obama empowered the CA to enact the UN’s plan for worldwide food standards.

The National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council was created to assist Obama in destroying the alternative health industry.

Congress fought the use of CA policy as the foundation for an attempt by the federal government to remove the American public’s ability to purchase vitamin supplements by deeming those remedies as “unscientific”. Since the FDA have consistently claimed that these alternatives have no medicinal value and decried their daily use a danger to a healthy lifestyle, social stigmas have served to aid Obama in declaring them useless. Obama suggests that their potency be changed to ultra-low levels in compound mixtures.

While the Obama administration seeks to wipe out the natural medicine industry, the US government is pouring money and resources into the genetic engineering of pharmaceuticals to combat disease.

When natural remedies are completely outlawed, the general public will be forced to take drugs rather than heal through diet and vitamins.

The medical agenda is clear.

The relationship between the US government and the drug corporations created by Obama has laid the foundation for medical tyranny.
