In May of 2011, Pratima Dharm became the U.S. Army's first Hindu chaplain. Currently assigned to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., Chaplain Capt. Dharm says she spends most of her time reaching across faiths ministering to ill and wounded service members. "Human dignity is the greatest gift you can give someone," says Dharm, who, during the course of her career, has spent a year in Iraq on active duty. Born and raised in a Hindu family in India, Dharm first came to the U.S. in 2001. In 2006, she joined the military, which counts approximately 1,000 Hindus in its ranks.

A devotional bhakti art slideshow featuring artwork depicting the transcendental pastimes of Lord Nityananda. Lord Nityananda appeared as Lord Caitanya's principal associate for spreading the congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord. He especially spread the holy name of the Lord throughout Bengal. He was born in Ekacakra in 1473 in the month of Magha (January-February).
These photographs of albatross chicks were made in September 2009 on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.
To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way. These images depict the actual stomach contents of baby birds in one of the world's most remote marine sanctuaries, more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent.

The video covers all the basics on GMOs, including how they're engineered, why they kill the things that eat them, and the disastrous health effects they've been linked to in humans. It serves as both a reminder of the facts to those who already know about GMOs as well as a great primer for people new to the subject.
