|In SOLAR (R)EVOLUTION, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities. We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era. Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible.
Without a doubt, the way we think, feel, relate, communicate, and experience reality has been changing dramatically in recent years, and Dieter Broers affirms those changes will ultimately culminate in a new form of consciousness and harmony on Earth. Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
|When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions, Genetic Roulette. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology. After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.
This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.
A film by Jeffrey M. Smith. Narrated by Lisa Oz

|He’s high on heroin. He’s a thief. And he’s taking care of your grandma. Boppin’ at the Glue Factory is the award winning comedy about a drug-addled nurse, Eric, who lands a job in a ramshackle nursing home after highjacking dope from the county hospital. He must win over the nursing home manager and avoid nosey resident Mary (Mews Small – One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Man on the Moon) to execute his master plan of sneaking drugs from the supply closet.
Eric soon develops an enabling relationship with saxophonist/ resident Tharin (Conrad Roberts – Scorpion King, Mask of Zorro), exchanging dope for the rights to blare loud jazz after hours. As Eric charms his way into the home’s drug cabinet, he inadvertently brings some light to the retiree’s grim lives, throwing parties, matchmaking, and slipping the residents a few happy pills too. This sarcastic, unexpected film will leave you questioning where you just dropped your mother off to live, and how you can get in on the fun.
