We uriate and flush it away. Yuk! Then we drink 8 glasses of water to flush out our kidneys. I don't recycle what is thought to be a waste product and am not short of micronutrients, let alone toxins! But drinking all that urine? Believe it or not, you can survive on it - just in case you are trapped underground or shipwrecked. So keep a cup and a water bottle handy - urine can save you from a fatal bee sting or a snake bite. It can even be used to treat gluten sensitivity!

One of the lesser-considered outrages committed by the Nazis during World War II was the confiscation of cultural artifacts from plundering. Among these great works of stolen art were many that were stashed away and never recovered. Others were destroyed, either inadvertently or intentionally. Russia's Amber Room-literally an entire showcase space made almost entirely of amber-was one such great work that was taken and then lost by the Nazis after their failed invasion of Russia.
Globalization has been the defining feature of the late twentieth century.  Thomas Friedman defines globalization as an ongoing process that "is the inexorable integration of markets, nation-states and technologies to a degree never witnessed before-in a way that is enabling individuals, corporations and nation-states to reach around the world farther, faster, deeper and cheaper than every before." Likewise, Noam Chompsky expresses globalization as "just international integration." Regardless of one's exact definition, globalization has lead to increased transactions across national borders, inter-connected financial markets and large-scale international migration. "Everyday, trillions of dollars flow through the World's foreign exchange markets, which now exceeds $1.5 trillion." The world economy has become more integrated than every before and this movement of trade, money and people is what has been the driving force. Throughout the 1990's, globalization paved the way for many positive phenomenon in the world. This international integration was a major proponent to end poverty, child mortality, totalitarianism, unemployment, war, genocide, environmental catastrophes, low wages, poor working conditions and gender inequality. After the world trade center attack on September 11th and the train bombings in Spain, globalization may be revealing its darker side and pose a greater threat to the security of the world than was once perceived. This threat is due in large part to the fact that today; terrorists have become global actors and are using a combination of the fundamental principles of globalization like technological advances, loosening barriers, international trade, interchangeable currencies and the growing vulnerability of the integrated world to their advantage.

In this world of constant conflict, massive human hunger, self-serving governments and Darwinistic business practices; of noise and chaos there arrived a primal howl from the country’s youth for a more peaceful, loving world. That youth would be called the flower children but would evolve into the more politicalized hippies. It would be the hippies of those ragged years of outrage and outcries who were destined to change the world.
