"Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said a 100-round drum magazine was recovered at the shooting scene. He said that it could have been used to fire up to 50-60 shots in a minute.”
(source)

12 people died.
70 wounded.

Mr. Holmes purchased all of his weapons legally, law enforcement officials said. In the four months before the shootings, he also bought 3,000 rounds of handgun ammunition, 3,000 rounds for a semiautomatic rifle and 350 shells for a 12-guage shotgun, all over the Internet.”

Alcohol-related neuronal loss has been documented in specific regions of the cerebral cortex (superior frontal association cortex), hypothalamus and cerebellum (Harper, 1998). Such loss will result in axonal (Wallerian) degeneration and a permanent reduction in white matter volume.”

"Unexpectedly, doses of caffeine that are thought to have generally positive effects on attention and activity DEPRESS neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus.”
- Caffeine

+ + +

"Our results demonstrate that nicotine self-administration reduces the expression of PSA-NCAM and neurogenesis, whereas it increases cell death in the adult hippocampal formation.”

A decrease in neurogenesis has been associated with decreased learning (Lemaire et al., 2000). Finally and more importantly, an elegant recent study has recently shown that blockade of neurogenesis causes memory impairments in hippocampal-dependent learning ( Shors et al., 2001).”

- Nicotine

+ + +

"Adult hippocampal neurogenesis is suppressed following chronic administration of opiates (20), alcohol (21), nicotine (22), and cocaine (23).”

"The present study suggests that cannabinoids are the only illicit drug that can promote adult hippocampal neurogenesis following chronic administration.”

If we study history, then we can build a better future by learning from the mistakes of the past.

There is a vast library of human knowledge out there.

Derived from thousands of years of human experience.

Now, accessible via the Internet.

And as we learned from slavery, women’s rights movements, the Holocaust, desegregation, climate change, and medical marijuana prohibition - - history’s mistakes are often NOT self-correcting.

An unjust or harmful situation does not tend to go away on its own.

And often, there is fierce resistance when people try to change the cultural norm or law that permits an unjust situation.

+ + +

If you care about something, say something and create media about it.

The original Television era is over. Media is no longer ONE-WAY.

Now, anyone can create media, post it on the internet, and potentially reach people all over the world.

Grassroots movements and ideas can now flourish with the same exposure as Corporations have on Television networks.

Now, an individual CAN make a difference.

+ + +

Imagine a world where ideas, people and products are popular based on their merits - not their marketing.
