Solar power will push out coal faster than you think
15 June 2017 - Solar power, once so costly it only made economic sense in spaceships, is becoming cheap enough that it will push coal and even natural-gas plants out of business faster than previously forecast. That's the conclusion of a Bloomberg New Energy Finance outlook for how fuel and electricity markets will evolve by 2040. The research group estimated solar already rivals the cost of new coal power plants in Germany and the U.S. and by 2021 will do so in quick-growing markets such as China and India. (more)

Tilos, Greece: the first island in the Mediterranean to run entirely on wind and solar power
15 June 2017 - Tiny Tilos, in the Dodecanese, is a pioneering nature reserve. Now, Greece's 'green island' is set to be powered by renewable energy. Tilos owes its extraordinary biodiversity to a network of underground springs that feed five wetlands -- but also to the late mayor, Tassos Aliferis, a committed environmentalist who earned Tilos its reputation as 'Greece's green island'. The current mayor, Maria Kamma, continues to champion sustainable development, and human rights. She has extended an open invitation to refugee families to settle on Tilos, working with the NGO SolidarityNow and the UNHCR to establish sheltered accommodation, language classes,and mentoring schemes to help asylum-seekers set up organic farming businesses in partnership with locals.

A scientist's quest for enlightenment
27 June 2017 - Renowned researcher David Orme-Johnson, PhD, shares his personal journey toward uncovering the science of higher states of consciousness. From an early age he sought to learn more about a state of transcendental bliss he had read about, and briefly glimpsed. This led to the study of philosophy, a doctoral degree in psychology, and to Transcendental Meditation. Learning the technique in 1970, Dr Orme-Johnson experienced 'an amazing sense of being at home with myself. And I was utterly calm when I came out. . . . I learned there was a name for the unbounded awareness I had experienced as a child: Transcendental Consciousness. . . . Now I had regular access to it through my TM practice.' Dr Orme-Johnson made substantial contributions to the new, rapidly developing field of research on the physiological correlates of this state and its beneficial effects in human life - 'a global scientific exploration of enlightenment'.

Secrets to a longer, healthier life: How modern scientific discoveries and ancient holistic traditions can reverse ageing
16 May 2017 - Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, presents 'a new science of ageing that integrates the discoveries of modern science with those of an ancient health science - Maharishi AyurVeda, a holistic approach to ageing that enhances the mind and body from deep within, using the wisdom of the body's inner intelligence'. Dr Schneider is Dean of the College of Integrative Medicine and Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management. His research has been supported by US$25 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health and other agencies. He cites many studies, including those demonstrating that 'older individuals who practise Transcendental Meditation show lower rates of mortality - they live significantly longer with better physical and mental health than control subjects who do not meditate. . . . Simply put, stress speeds ageing. And effective stress reduction slows it down.' (more)

Don Arney inducted into National Inventors Hall of Fame: TM allows me to mine the 'kernels of innovation'
13 May 2017 - One of 15 extraordinary innovators inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame (US) last week is Don Arney, inventor of the aerial fire-fighting 'Bambi Bucket', now used in over 110 countries. Suspended from a helicopter, the lightweight, collapsible bucket delivers huge quantities of water in a concentrated column. It was used to cool Japan's Fukushima nuclear site after the 2011 tsunami. Describing the creative process of this invention, Arney credited his long Transcendental Meditation practice, twice a day since 1970, which allows him to mine the 'nuggets of information' and 'kernels of innovation' that bubble up from deeper levels of the mind. In his NIHF acceptance speech in Washington, DC, he also paid tribute to his long-time business partner Mark McCooey, who transformed Arney's invention into an iconic product used around the world, saving forests, homes and lives.

'It's an important part of our personal lifestyle, but also our business lifestyle. We've tried to infuse the principles of being stress free and relaxed into our company.' (more)

Let your love flow - Transcendental Meditation reduces stress, improves relationships
13 January 2017 - Like many women, Janet Hoffman finds relationships a vitally important area of life. 'My heart has to flow to someone. At any given moment - a child, a sister, a parent, the family pet - someone is the object of my adoration,' writes the executive director of the Transcendental Meditation programme for women professionals in the USA. 'Nourishing someone besides myself is a joy, a fulfilment of being.' In the past she sometimes experienced that channel of expression 'just dries up', like a writer with writer's block. But after learning Transcendental Meditation she found that 'stress and fatigue just melt away. . . . my mind becomes more silent and settled, so I can listen better and appreciate others more.'

Summarizing published, peer-reviewed research in this area, Ms Hoffman says, 'The TM technique . . . promotes brain wave coherence (more regions of the brain sync up and work together). Greater coherence leads to calmness, intelligence, focus, better decision making and problem solving . . . . The experience of transcending resets the brain's ground state, restoring neurological balance and clarity of mind.' (more)

Brain imaging parses Transcendental Meditation practice - Psych Central reports
7 November 2016 - New research, published in the journal Brain and Cognition, explains differences and dispels misconceptions regarding Transcendental Meditation and other meditation practices, Psych Central recently reported. The study found that during practice of Transcendental Meditation, activity in the 'default mode network' (a large-scale brain network involving areas in the front and back of the brain) was high, showing that the process did not involve effort or control of the mind. These findings underscoring the effortlessness of TM practice are in contrast with those on other meditation practices, which all show decreased activity in the default mode network - indicating that the mind is being focused, and not allowed to effortlessly transcend. 'It's a critical point,' said lead author Fred Travis, PhD, director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management. 'Researchers, commentators, and popular media often lump meditation practices together.' (more)

A team of researchers examined 1,949 deadly heat waves from around the world since 1980 to look for trends, define when heat is so severe it kills, and forecast the future. They found that nearly one in three people now experience 20 days a year when the heat reaches deadly levels. But the study predicts that up to three in four people worldwide will endure that kind of heat by the end of the century, if global warming continues unabated. (more)

Conservationists: Imperiled Atlantic salmon decline worsens
18 June 2017 - Fewer of North America's Atlantic salmon are making it back to rivers to spawn, which bodes poorly for the future of the imperiled fish, an international conservation group says. Atlantic salmon were once abundant in the rivers of New England and Atlantic Canada, but they are now endangered or have disappeared in parts of both areas. The salmon are born in rivers, swim to the Atlantic and return to their natal river to spawn. (more)

Insulating skin on high-rises has fueled fires before London
18 June 2017 - For the last decade, engineers specializing in fire safety have worried about the hidden danger posed by the kind of insulated metallic skin that transported flames up a high-rise apartment building in London, killing dozens.

Global Good News features science news indicative of a growing understanding Natural Law

Global Good News features science news indicative of a growing understanding Natural Law, and the application of that knowledge for life-enhancing benefits.

Modern sciences examine the branches of Natural Law, expressed as the disciplines of physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, and physiology. The fulfilment of modern science is the discovery of the Unified Field of All the Laws of Nature, the unified basis of all streams of knowledge, and the unification of the fundamental force fields of Nature known to science - the electromagnetic, weak, strong, and gravitational fields.

The Unified Field of Natural Law is enlivened in individual awareness through the Transcendental Meditation Technique and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying. These are the technologies of Maharishi Vedic Science that make available to us the total potential of Natural Law and the total potential of human life.
