dichotomies - paradoxes - ellipsis
American psychologist professor, practicing clinical psychologist and leading philosopher of science, Paul E.Meehl (1920-2003), is the 74th most cited psychologist of the 20th century, whose work on comparing clinicians judgements versus predictions of psychological tests, is summarized in his book “Statistical vs. Clinical Prediction in Psychology” (1954). His conclusion have resulted into decades of denial, unitl finally re-vindicated. In his book, 19 out of 20 studies concluded the accuracy of psychological tests when compared with that of physicians.
Although most studys have already confirmed that mechanical, properly coded, with complete information about clinical judgement psychological tests are 100% reliable, doctors still today, continue to use their personal evaluations, with not guaranteed results.
Based upon the fact that information is crucial to help us participate in the process of contributing for a better life for everyone in our planet, we have compiled a series of statistic studies, done by organizations in the forefront of helping people worlwide, who have no access to basic survival issues such as: lack of water, wars, illness, hunger, violence against women, children, animals, depletion of the environment, etc.
"Water is the driving force in nature". ― Leonardo da Vinci. But, we all should have known by now, as it is essential to life!
the war on women
Why this issue has to be "fought" for, in order NOT to happen? Women are humans and, humans have human rights! We left the caverns many thousands of years ago . . .

Our humorous non-fiction book highlights the individual complexities in which biochemestry affects personal realtionships. It's a fact.

Behind the "family values" mantra of many, there is a revealing world with a different noir tale.
One in 8 people live in hunger.It's also about the price they are paying for the crap they are sold to eat.

know & tell
The world functions according to your choices. But only nature shows you how little control you really have.
We have no longer borders no matter how much some would like to build walls moved by ideological utopia. Technology has "taken down the walls."
Regardless of where in this planet we live, we are united by the same basic needs, feelings, desires, hunger, thirst, aspirations,hope, fear, frustrations, vision, survival expectations. Our actions and inactions are the energy which keep moving generations of mankind into the future. And, the more "advanced" we think we are, we believe with erroneous assertion that our place is most perfect than the rest and, "better" too.
There are no excuses to keep on wearing blinders. Facts are within reach and clearly documented, regarding how fast we have been destroying the quality of life in our planet, while being a non-participant in the destruction of human, animal and natural resources..
As we have respect for the planet on which we live and everything that is part of it, we have decided to begin by researching where in the planet is "shangrila." Naturally there are few natural wonders in which human presence has yet to destroy. But the most astonishing reality is that over 6 billion people live under the hands of different levels of corruption and because of it, I'm sure the "wonder" areas will soon be gone . . .
Thanks to organizations such as Transparency International we are able to the share this map. It helps to visualize through the intensity of colors, under which "hue" of corruption we are located. Note: tthere are no colorless areas in the world, only few variations in tones. You might get excited if you happen to be under a "lighter" hue. However, many statistical studys show, you are not safer, because there is an enormeous amount of data missing, purposely hidden from you and impossible to gather due to the lack of resources.
