~ FOR THOSE of you who like science, and green swirls, the new Earth Wind Map is a very cool thing to check out. It gives you a pretty clear idea of cyclones & anti-cyclones (those are complicated weather-terminologies right there) and what storms look like in terms of wind, and how interconnected everything is.
Like the US-specific wind map created by designers Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg earlier this year, Earth Wind Map is interactive. Click and drag the globe and you’ll spin it in place, then wait a few seconds before the data appears in the form of snaking lines. Gentle breezes are thin strands of green, strong winds are long streaks of bright yellow, while the strongest currents are an angry red. Take a trip around Earth Wind Map’s globe now and you’ll be able to compare the light summer winds currently wafting across northern Brazil with the swirling gusts off the north-east coast of Japan, a hypnotic and colorful reminder of our planet’s wildly changing weather.
It’s zoomable, you can turn the globe around.. it’s Google Earth for wind. enjoy! ~

~ THIS YEAR, BINKY was unwell on Remembrance Day 2012, and didn’t repost “Your Friend, Gren“. Please re-read it.
Now, after The Day itself, I would use the freedom and civilization fought for by all those young men and women long ago– and more recently– to speak clearly of these times.
Everywhere you look, freedom is under attack. Ever has it been thus, but now, it is whole societies of the free West which seem content with shackle and muzzle.
King Robert The Bruce
Almost 700 years ago, King Robert The Bruce and his Scots spoke with one voice & mind to articulate why they fought against the seemingly inevitable and inexorable advance of English rule over Scotland forever. The Declaration of Arbroath– written as a plea to the Pope for Scots liberty– concludes with the ringing words:
“…for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.”
William Wallace (below), who showed Robert The Bruce how to fight & resist military domination, learned & lived these words, taught by his father and uncle:
Dico Tibi Verum,
Libertas Optima Rerum:
Sub Nexu Vivito, Fili.
My Son, Freedom is best,
I tell thee true,
of all things to be won.
Then never live within the Bond of Slavery.
Ever Restless Scotses
No, Teh Binks is not throwing his considerable international reputation behind either side in the current Scottish Independence issue– it is not 1300, and Scotland, undefended against the soft evil EUmpire, would become even more a puppet of political correctness, micromanagement, and utopian corruption than England already is. She survives better as the motherland of Scots worldwide, and behind the shield of Great Britain, which may yet stand against the freedom-quenching currents of tyranny belching forth from Belgium and Brussells.
Rather, the battle spoken of by Wallace and Bruce is now everywhere, and in the hand of every man and woman who still loves the free West, and the fate of countless people now, and yet unborn.
This freedom is freedom under law, not mere license; it is freedom for each other, not selfish cafeteria individualism; it is freedom to do good, and be restrained from doing evil; freedom from bad government and tyrants, but ever seeking good rule, and just rulers. In that sense, the bureaucratic petty tyrant and the libertarian are twins, not opposites: they’re merely arguing over who makes the absolute rules– self or state.
In the West, behind every such declaration as Arbroath or the Wallace family stands another, in whose name, and by whose conferred life and freedom we are free indeed. This is what both secularist and super-statist (and comfy populaces) have forgotten. The Scots Saltire is the cross of the martyred Saint Andrew, First-Called Apostle of Jesus, patron saint after the Irish prince and missionary Saint Columba, evangelist to the Picts.
To the ancient world, ripe for his arival and message, came Jesus Christ, by whom each one of us may be free of sin, and death, and hell– and slavery to self or to external power. “I am come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly”; and “Greater love has no man than this, than that he lay down his life for his friends”; and “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” St. Paul declares:
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” [ Galatians 5:1 ]
“Free indeed”– a terrible burden indeed. Seriously.
Slavery can be soft and safe– witness the state of most people ever, and Islam, and dictatorships– and people yearning for such when they lose them. How many utopians and progressives wish a perfect world, even if it means losing real intellectual, spiritual, and political freedom. How many feminists, same-sex militants, and political radicals cheerfully fight and impose real oppression on the minds & spirits of others, in the name of their own imaginings of ‘liberation’? We may not see literal shackles, but with CCTV, online surveillance, drones, freedom of speech curtailed, government goodies, and other forms of electronic power employed to sheepify the masses to worhip and serve the wolves.
Actual freedom takes actual men and women, actual virtue, actual courage and choosing, actual consequences, and ever and always serving the Kingdom of God as a present reality, and loving our neighbour as we would have ourselves loved. Even unto the cost of our lives. In Christ, ours is a perfect freedom, not the tempting worship of the self as god, nor the imposition of this or that heaven on earth.
It would be a sad epitaph of this stage in human civilization to say
“They fell in love with slavery again,
bribed with false peace,
and most forgot how to be honest men.” ~
~ ITEM: Glenn Beck: Blaze TV
~ AS NOTED GENERALLY on the interwebs, President Obama deserves salesman of the year awards for weapons & ammo in America.
Post election, some call for a new American Revolution, a second civil war, armed resistance against a dishonest, greedy, destructive regime. War is always the last choice, and civil wars are horrible.
Long-time conservative commentator (and former liberal) Bill Whittle is pondering another way, and what he has to say is well worth considering. Glenn Beck is also dreaming large.
Their words and ideas may well be part of answering the U.S. King of Free Candy Forever, his supporters, and the depraved & debt-doomed new America born– by electoral fraud most likely– on November 6th 2012.
A healthy republic, a reborn America, will come via faith, and basic virtue reborn in the bosoms of many millions of her citizens– not by more free candy, or candidates liberal and more liberaller, nor by the customary conservative circular firing-squads.
Just sayin’ is all. ~
~ ITEM: “We Have You Surrounded. Drop the Big Gulp and Come Out with Your Hands Up”
~ BINKY HAS BEEN on a food-journey: a kind of Atkins Diet (less sugar, bread, etc., lots of meat, veg, etc.). He has conclusions, and some of them may upset your universe.
(1) Ever taste your tears or sweat? Salty, right? You’re 2/3 made of seawater. Salt is good for you. If you have too much salt, your body excretes it. If you don’t have enough, your body fluids are utterly out of balance, and you get all sorts of health-problems.
Women? Not enough salt = less capacity for your body to keep & employ calcium = osteoporosis, heart-problems,stroke, and other health issues.
Low-fat diets can kill you. Why? Your body needs fat, is made of fat, burns fat for fuel, your very cell-membranes are made of fat. What most of us have too much of is bad fat– maade when our bodies run on sugars and carbs, yet telling our bodies we are starving, so to store more, and worse types of fat throughout the abdomen, blood systems, heart, everywhere. A vicious cycle.
Too much sugar, carbs and suchlike are toxic. Eat less breads & grains, more fish, meats, salads and veggies, as in the food-plan laid out in It Starts With Food.
That is, the food industry, diet industry, and well-meaning nutrituion studies we’ve been taught for 50 and more years are simply mistaken. Low salt & low fat are ruinous.
I’ve dieted down the years, with the same result as most people… failure within 5 years, yo-yo weight, worse health.
On the low carb system, I’ve de-toxed, lost 25+ pounds, and keep losing & burning fat– while eating literally all the meat and eggs and butter and eggs and salad and veg I can. My cholesterol is dropping quickly, and sugars are coming into a healthier range. The proof is in the pudding.
Come and arrest me, ya fairy food nazis. ~
~ ITEM: Oh No, Not Joss Whedon
~ ITEM: Joss Whedon Is A Bully And A Coward
~ IN INTERVIEWS, director/ writer/ producer and nerd-deity Joss Whedon (Avengers, Firefly, Buffy, Toy Story, and many other projects) says that he does not believe in any ‘divine bully’ in the sky. Okily dokily, then.
Saith Teh Binks: look at what Whedon writes, and you may ask yourself whether his fictional universes do not clash with his professed atheism. I say they do.
I’ve mentioned before the examples of movies like Practical Magic, or What Dreams May Come: the universe presented in these movies initially does not account for all that happens– in the first, the witches have all sorts of power, yet are nearly overcome by a demon; in the second, the bright & happy afterlife hides a purgatory, and a hell through which the protagonist must travel to save his wife.
Whedon’s universes all presume and take for granted a real right and wrong; clear moral ideas; that struggle to defend the right and good.. well, that it is right and good. The same can be said of his passion for his cancelled 2002 show Firefly, an internet crusade on the part of the fandom (The Browncoats), which became a personal crusade of his own, leading to the 2005 movie Serenity.
He recently said that the popularity of Firefly 10 years on is a vindication– that he was right, and the fans were right, and the FOX suits who canned the show after only 14 episodes were terribly, terribly wrong.
Note: not terribly wrong because they defied his taste, or a popular movement; or because they wanted something more flashy & Star Trek-y; but because it was wrong, as such, to not allow great stories and a talented crew & stable of actors some time to find their feet, and prove the value of something truly new, interesting, and of abiding worth in television history.
Right & wrong, good and evil, universes in story which help us know and see ourselves more truly– simply put, atheism or scientific materialism cannot account for itself, for good and evil, for objective truth (beyond “science”), for accounting for all we are, all we experience, all we struggle with in ourselves, the universe, one another. You know, the rest of reality outside rocks and beakers and such claims to absolute knowledge.
Thank God for it– and as a better storyteller than he is believer, he allows his characters to have faith, minus atheistical hysteria or too much religion-bashing; he allows the battle of actual good and evil, with the consequences thereof; that individuals matter, that the fight for goodness, truth, loyalty, and courage is beyond value, even when in the minority, or against impossible odds.
This faith at one remove: the modern fear of metaphysical commitment on the one hand, with the shining forth of good things in spite of yourself– imagining them to arise solely from the self, or us alone. The old pagan argument against Christianity is still with us: that it is arrogant to claim one way only, when there are many ways up the mountain to the divine. The Christian answer remains true, if not lived out or shown forth by our modern cowardly Western churches– it is not arrogance, but humility to witness to the ladder which God let down from heaven, the way not imagined by so many ancient faiths and longings, but completed in the life, death, resurrection of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son.
The human soul, as redeemed by Christ the Word, is full of treasures, and palaces, and kingdoms, the borderlands of heaven itself– and all the riches of the Kingdom of heaven.
To that extent, although socially and politically progressive, I admire Joss Whedon’s boyish wonder, his fairness, gifts, determination, and true story-telling capacities. One day, may he come to know and love the storyteller above, the Word incarnate, from whom all the best stories come, and in whom the best story of all is eternally true.
Mind you, celebrity metaphysics and bully pulpiteering are not the last word– after all, I don’t believe in the ‘Sky Bully’ rejected by Whedon and others, either. Like reality, God is both more complicated and more simple than such teen-aged throw-away cleverness.
As for claiming pro-Nazi & pro-Palestinian Satre and absurdist wreckers Monty Python as his ‘authorities’? Again, his stories are better than some of his inspirations. ~

Via a pre-dead minion:
A Canadian author, Sergei Bourachaga, wrote an article titled “An Open Letter to YWCA Canada” about the humiliation inflicted on female students during Friday prayer sessions held in the cafeteria of Valley Park Middle School, on Overlea Blvd, in The City of Toronto.
Every Friday, in dozens of public secular schools in Ontario, in the name of accommodating religious differences, Islamic fundamentalism imposes on Ontarian Muslim female students, a TDSB approved sex-segregated prayer arrangements and degrading rules inherited from the dark ages of Islam.
In the article accessible at:
the author is holding YWCA Canada accountable for giving up on the principles of equality and dignity for all women living in Canada to appease the Islamic intolerance of our secular values.
Please urge your readership and supporters to write to Paulette Senior, CEO of YWCA Canada– firstname.lastname@example.org and insist that justice, equality, and dignity for all women in Canada should never be undermined for the sake of political correctness.

~ ITEM: Delta to SCOTTEVEST– “Sorry but Carry-On Revenue = Ad Revenue in Delta Sky Magazine”
~ ITEM: Delta Sky Magazine rejects ad telling passengers how to avoid baggage fees
~ THIS BLOGGER is a big fan of ScottEVest clothing (SeV): clothing with extra pockets & wire-channels for iPods & pockets for the nerd-gear & tech-devices. Very handy for travel.
So SeV’s Prez Scott Jordan advertises that by wearing his gear, you can avoid extra baggage fees while flying. I did that very thing last Summer, keeping 15+ pounds of essential gear in my comfy SeV vest of many pockets (24, I think), including hidden pockets for cash & passports & tickets. It`s all about travelling smart, and no, I wasn’t charged extra for my vest.
In the first 3 months of 2010 alone, Delta Airlines pocketed $769 million+ out of air-traveller’s pockets for the infamous “baggage fees” (like those delightful “because we say so” arbitrary bank-fees, except from airlines– as if air passengers should be travelling naked). It’s all about clawing back some of the money lost after the 9-11 air-travel & tourism collapse & rising fuel costs, from the people actually willing to travel. That amounts to a juicy $3.076 billion a year.
Now Delta has blown a gasket over SeV, and refused their ad-money over the “avoid extra baggage fees” phrase and idea. In response, Jordan has taken this David vs. Goliath fight public.
A couple years ago, United Airlines learned a lesson the hard way about mistreating luggage and ignoring complaints– and the more general problem of treating the air-travelling public like cattle (see vid below). Delta may be thinking it`s their mega-corp versus some little twerp, but word of this is spreading via social media & YouTube and FaceBook, and the customers are not amused. Way to throw away money and goodwill, Delta– I’ll be avoiding your services until you get a clue. ~
P.S. United eventually paid up for the guitar, but not until after The Sons Of Maxwell vid went viral & they were drenched in free bad PR: United Breaks Guitars.
~ EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, a key-like book comes along which unlocks a mystery. In this case, the mystery is Barack Obama, Jr., and the key is Dinesh D’Souza’s hot new tome, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.
Conservatives have spilled much talk and ink describing the misdeeds of the current President, and trying to pigeon-hole him as a racist, a socialist, a puppet for other radicals. Indian-born Dinesh D’Souza read & re-read Obama’s books, researched his history and education, and– based on his own experience as an immigrant to America– recognizes Obama as an anti-Colonial socialist, bent on punishing rich imperialists, humiliating and weakening America the Oppressor, and redistributing the wealth stolen from the downtrodden at home and world-wide.
In his basic ideas and commitments, Obama’s a 1960s African socialist reformer, bringing payback to the West– only as the head of what he views as the great villain-nation of the world. These are indeed The Dreams From His Father— a leading Kenyan Marxist and anti-colonialist intellectual who helped that nation throw off British rule.
It’s why Barack Obama seems cold, off-key, and a bit strange, even to many leading Democrats and liberals: he’s not truly an American Leftist, Democrat, or progressive– because he’s only superficially an American, nor truly & deeply an Afro-American. This anti-colonialist world-view explains his roundabout language and TelePrompterism, since he must always be interpreting & re-wording his actual views & motivations; it connects his family’s own deep radicalism with that of his mentors and professors and advisors and even his former pastor, the anti-Colonialist pastor Jeremiah Wright.
It’s also why people who do love America are right to suspect that their President is trying to cripple and bankrupt the U.S. into submission and weakness on the world-stage. He is.
Sad to say, the bright lights of post-war African independence saw their newly emergent nations crippled by dictatorships, debt, corruption, military coups, tribal rivalries, Islamic expansionism, civil wars, Cold War geo-politics, and the real-world difficulties of home rule versus chafing against imperialism. Africa today is full of hope, and suffering, disease and war– and still dependent on hand-outs from the West: the hopeful Marxism of Obama Sr. and his peers did not create their new Africa.
Yet the strange figure of Obama– living out the rage and vengeance he believes America should be punished for– means that he is living in the past, and at one remove from his real duties and responsibilities, and in a merciless distance from the people he promised to serve as President.
Thus D’Souza’s theory makes a lot of sense– for instance– of Obama`s shrugs and golfing and parties and offhand attitudes to the astonishing unemployment levels in America, along with business failures, despair, and the real threat of the collapse of the American dollar and economy, oil spills, or disasters. It’s as if some part of his unAmerican soul is saying “So what? You had it coming, and I’m here to bring it to you.” It’s Marx meets Robert Mugabe meets Prof. Edward Said meets DC spin-doctors.
America, be afraid– for your President resents your nation, your history, your pride, prosperity, and freedom.
I think Dinesh D’Souza has seen into the heart and mind of this puzzling and enigmatic President– go buy this book, and pass it around. ~
~ ITEM: Doctor Roy– Trudeau was a horrible PM
~ ITEM: Justin Dreams– Little Pete waits in the wings
~ HIS NAME, you will recall, was Pierre Yves ELLIOT Trudeau. So what, you say? just this; his mother was part Scot, and of that rambunctious family the Elliots, who along with the Grahams, Armstrongs, Nixons and others were thieves, murderers, border reavers, and cattle-lifters. Lawless yahoos in the war-torn zone on the Anglo-Scottish border.
So in Trudeau’s very genes lay some of the material for making stuff up as he went along; seeing what he could get away with; playing fast and loose with the rule of law; saying one thing and doing another. Then he was unleashed upon an unsuspecting Canada.
The recent prostitution ruling in Ontario by another liberal judge is based on Trudeau’s desire to be the second founding father of Canada– remade in his own image and likeness. Central to that was an abstract Euro-style document– a made-in Canada Constitution & Charter of Rights & Freedoms. Lust for that all-holy page in history has driven many folks to extremes.
In the blundering political free-for-all that was the constitutional conference, it was not a meeting of great minds distilling the best of British and Western legal and constitutional law, seeking to fashion a constitution and charter of rights and freedoms for the ages. It was a horse-trading mess, where everything was up for grabs because it was essentially Trudeau and the then-Premiers of Canada squabbling over this and that and getting the most for their own constituencies.
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is the worst part of that political car-wreck– it creates a court-driven legal process, where judges have power to make and rewrite and strike down laws; plus, it essentially rewards those who seek to accrue rights for themselves or their interest group. The one with the most lawyers and court-enforced rights wins; the majority, or those without hyphens or grievances, are ‘less’ Canadian, less legally real.
What if you don’t go along enthusiastically with the invented laws of the new regime? Then you are– as former Prime Minister Paul Martin infamously said of opponents of same-sex ‘marriage’ after that right was discovered by the courts– that such opponents were not mistaken or honestly of a different view– they were “unCanadian”.
So abortion law? Ruled unconstitutional. Man-woman marriage? Unconstitutional. The Charter has fragmented Canada into groups, and set Canadians against one another, and judge-backed minorities against the majority.
True constitutional thought by Canadian philosophers like James Doull, George Grant, or other constitutionalist legal experts? Unconsulted. A lasting and true solution to the French-English issue? Not so much. Social and political peace with all the issues confronting us from 1982 to 2010? Keep dreaming. The central documents of neo-Canada are all about unravelling what was, and making a new hyper-powerful judicial ruling elite, setting aside the legitimate powers of provincial legislatures, or Parliament itself.
So Trudeau must be judged a failure in his desire to cut Canada from her British legal roots, replacing that with a working & historic alternative. The legal civil wars, rampant minoritarianism & activist judges cheerfully blurring the line between interpreting law and advocating for politically correct outcomes– all may be laid at Trudeau’s feet.
It’s made lotsa business for lawyers & activists, but otherwise has not made Canada a more stable, legally and socially coherent modern nation, the true north strong and free, born of two founding nations. This is the fundamental weakness behind all news headlines & free-speech fights and creeping sharia and politics as usual in Ottawa.
For more on our unique situation, read the articles above, and read anything by William Gairdner on the state of Canada, and how we got into this high-speed handbasket. ~
YOUTUBE: The Left On Campus
~ ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS— Professor Harvey Mansfield of Harvard (yes, I know). In a time when too many academics are tainted with radical politics, and rendered intellectually malignant, it`s good to find a real thinker, hidden in one of the rich & ivyed hotbeds of crazy.
One of the favourite late Renaissance/ protestant sideswipes against Medieval scholars was that they mostly wasted their lives arguing how many angels could dance on the head of a pin. Pure polemics, meant to score points at the cost of truth: it never happened.
Dorothy L. Sayers argued that the question was “simply a debating exercise” and that the answer “usually adjudged correct” was that “angels are pure intelligences, not material, but limited, so that they have location in space, but not extension.” Sayers compares the question to that of how many people’s thoughts can be concentrated upon a particular pin at the same time. The answer, therefore, is that an infinity of angels can be located on the head of a pin, since they do not occupy any space there.
One might wish many current academics did not actually waste time & thought on the modern version of angels & pinheads, like Women`s studies, critical theory, same-sex studies, race studies– and all the other trickle-down Marxism of the new Left, following on the radicalizing ideas of The Frankfurt School. Such impoverishing group-think excludes all other ideas– especially anything like the older liberal tradition of patiently learning what everybody ever thought from Moses & Plato onwards, so actual thought might break out, and you’d actually have something informed and useful and truthful to say. Heaven forbid.
Professor Mansfield is proudly of the older understanding. Beloved by thoughtful students, a hard marker, a conservative thinker, he has used his tenure not to hide and hive with liberals and political correctness, but to speak out, teach boldly, and to defy the intellectual death-cult which has overtaken many Western and American universities since the advent of the radical Left.
