Here is the other compilation I had prepared for you last week. First you will find the introduction from a most excellent book I'm currently reading and which I think will be of interest to many of you. Bobbie Sandoz, from Hawaii, who had the unique priviledge of interacting on a regular basis with wild dolphins over the course of the last 10 years is sharing in her latest book the gist of what she learned and understood from the dolphins during those contacts. If you can get it and read it, you will love it!
And of course, you'll also find lots of other important stuff to know and act upon...

Listening to Wild Dolphins
Learning Their Secrets for Living with Joy
by Bobbie Sandoz
"Bobbie Sandoz has truly tuned in to the magic of dolphins and delivers a joyful program for human healing."
- John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus
For the past several years best-seller lists have been filled with books offering guidance from gurus, guides, angels, and God. Yet in our world of concrete reality we have to ask why there is so much interest in tuning in to these conversations with wise beings from other worlds and whether and how dolphins might fit into the mix.
Interestingly, we probe outer space in hopes of encountering spiritual beings and a higher intelligence, mixed with dread that we might succeed. Thus anytime we find clues that spiritual guides with an intelligence greater than our own exists, we go quickly into denial and hide the evidence. Because of this combination of fascination and fear, we have to ask what we would do if we actually encountered such a species right here in our midst no farther away than a few feet beneath the sea. Would we ignore and deny all possibility of their abilities, or would we tune in and learn more about them?
The answer lies in the story the dolphins have come to tell us in Listening to Wild Dolphins. For although dolphins live in our midst on this physical plane, they have often been thought to be magical beings with a link to a spiritual world of higher intelligence. Yet in spite of this view, whenever we study dolphins, these qualities are overlooked in favor of observing their physical characteristics, migrational patterns, eating habits, and mating behaviors.
But now in Listening to Wild Dolphins, we have a new chance to tune in to what else they might have to tell us about the source of their magic and secrets for living with such harmony and joy in our shared world. If we will listen, rather than retreat into denial as we usually do, they will also show us how we too can act as our higher selves, manifest the world of our dreams, and live with the kind of joy they express in their playful dances across our horizon. If they succeed in winning our friendship and trust, they may also inspire us to stop killing their species, polluting their ocean home, and threatening them with activities such as our sonar experiments and other programs.
Dolphins and their larger whale cousins are not often mentioned in early Hawaiian lore. Yet people today are sighting increasing numbers of them along the Hawaiian and other shores throughout the world, and many are enjoying dolphin and whale-initiated encounters with these beguiling beings. Why is it that dolphins are befriending humanity at this particular time and what is it about their visits that leaves us with the impression we have been in the presence of very high beings?
The dolphins and whales had initiated this more recent friendship with humanity thirty years ago, with encounters increasing in number and intensity over the past ten years. In fact it was ten years ago that the dolphins first befriended me and established a strong connection between us. As our relationship progressed, I realized they had a story to tell that I as a teacher and author was uniquely qualified to convey to a human audience in their behalf. But in order to tell it, I would have to get beyond the limits of scientific protocol for observing and reporting only what can be perceived and measured by the five senses.
According to progressive scientists such as biophysicist Dr. Candace Pert and other leading and award-winning colleagues, this traditionally mechanistic approach to science not only prevents the study of non-material things, it blocks all recognition and exploration of some of the more elevated and interesting "non-things" such as emotion, mind, soul, spirit, intuition, and telepathy - all qualities involved in the study of such expanded beings as the dolphins and whales. As a result of this historically narrow bias in science, the most important areas to understand if we are to live our lives with meaning have gone essentially unexplored in our culture.
Yet even with this barrier to exploring our invisible world, whenever some new book opens up a fresh channel for expanding our awareness of these higher pursuits, it invariably makes the best-seller list. Thus in spite of the scientific community's disinterest in conversations with these higher beings, millions of people want to tune in and listen. Yet in order to pursue these subjects in greater depth, we must stop worrying about the ridicule of traditional science and get more comfortable with a broader base of exploration and study. While claiming this, it's important to remember that our most esteemed scientists who have made the greatest contributions to our knowledge are those who have broken from the narrow limits of mechanistic science to make their discoveries.
In view of this argument for studying dolphins from a broader perspective, it seemed my particular background was a good match for telling their larger story. I was schooled in the social sciences with a year of cross-cultural study abroad and two graduate degrees in education and social work. My studies included coursework in the scientific method, followed by an appointment as a research assistant on a University of California at Berkeley research project conducted at the University of Hawai'i. Yet although I was no stranger to research protocol, my subsequent career track released me from the limits of mechanistic science. Consequently, I was not bound by my profession as a private practitioner to use their rules and was free to explore other alternatives to effective living and healing which allowed me to better serve my clients.
In addition to my career as a counselor, I raised two children, authored a book on parenting, enjoy an active schedule of professional speaking, and am a columnist for my local newspaper. I have also studied metaphysics and the ideas of quantum physicists, which I incorporated into my counseling practice and life. In addition, it helps that I am a strong swimmer with a background as a surfer, lifeguard, and swim instructor, and I have regular access to one of the most beautiful bays in the world frequented by dolphins. But the thing that most qualifies me for hearing what the dolphins have to share are the skills I have developed as a sensitive listener during my thirty years of tuning in to the hearts of my clients.
I have since been blessed by over two thousand hours in the water and more than five hundred hours on boats enjoying dolphin and whale encounters in Hawai'i, Australia, Tonga, Mexico, the Bahamas, Bimini Island, the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean, and Florida. I have also attended three national and international cetacean conferences in Hawai'i and Australia.
By paying close attention to the dolphins and whales, keeping a daily journal of my observations and insights, and then comparing these to the observations of others as well as the available research, I have come away with some fascinating insights and lessons. Now in Listening to Wild Dolphins, I offer the dolphins a platform for being heard at a deeper level and sharing their wisdom with humanity about how we can live as our higher selves in a world of our dreams. And so I invite you to enjoy their story as you sit back and listen to the wild dolphins.
With aloha, Bobbie Sandoz

"Bobbie Sandoz sheds spiritual 1ight on the world beneath the sea. Humanity has so much to learn from the dolphins. Hopefully we will one day be as sensitive to them as they are so obvious!y sensitive to us."
Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love
If you could listen to dolphins, what would you hear? Might their message be intelligent, spiritual, or wise? And what could you learn from these mesmerizing beings? For the last ten years Bobbie Sandoz was blessed by the friendship of a pod of wild dolphins who provided the answers to these questions and much more. When Bobbie first became acquainted with the dolphins, she was amazed by their conscious and sentient nature. She later became aware of how they communicate and demonstrate qualities associated with the "higher self."
Next the dolphins revealed a series of insights that humans can use for realizing their dreams. As Bobbie tested these tools, she discovered the depth of the dolphinst wisdom and the authenticity of their joy.
Bobbie Sandoz, MSW, is a therapist, award-winning columnist, and veteran professional speaker. Her first book, Parachutes for Parents, has been reviewed by Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Los Angeles Times, Dallas Morning News, McCalls, and Woman's Day and is acclaimed by parents and professionals. Listening to Wild Dolphin's is based on a ten-year friendship with dolphins and whales throughout the world.
"Bobbie Sandoz's wise and insightful book provides valuable lessons concerning living in an abundance of love and joy, and best of all, these lessons are wrapped in awe-inspiring stories about interacting with wild dolphins. From a wealth of experience and a heart brimming with love for her dolphin friends, Ms. Sandoz genty nudges us toward embracing, honoring, and acting from our own intuition, goodness, and grace . . . just as the dolphins do."

Whale Deaths Linked to Undersea Blasts Science:
The Navy was conducting sonar tests in the area during mammals' strandings. But NOAA report stops short of explicit connection.
From the Washington Post
WASHINGTON-- Intense underwater noise or explosions caused a mass stranding of healthy beaked whales in the Bahamas in March while the U.S. Navy was conducting tests in the area, federal marine specialists said Wednesday. The report to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration does not explicitly conclude that Navy sonar tests or explosions caused the deaths, but it does say the hemorrhages found in or around the animals' ears are consistent with the effects of a "distant explosion, or an intense acoustic event." The findings are the first to link either distant noise or a faraway explosion with a whale stranding, said Darlene Ketten, an auditory specialist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who helped conduct necropsies on six of the whales for NOAA. She called the conclusions "a red flag" and "a reason for concern." In a letter to NOAA also released Wednesday, Assistant Secretary of the Navy Robert B. Pirie Jr. wrote that the Navy recognized that the Bahamas stranding was "an unusual and significant event" and that the service was cooperating in the ongoing investigation of the whale deaths. If naval sonar testing can cause trauma in whales, he wrote, the Navy will reassess its use of sonar tests during peacetime training and act to try to minimize the adverse impact on the whales. The Navy has been experimenting with a variety of high-intensity and low-frequency sonar systems that emit loud noise blasts underwater, spending $350 million over the last decade. The systems are needed, the Navy says, to track the growing number of quiet, diesel-electric submarines operated near sensitive coastlines by unfriendly nations. The report was immediately embraced by opponents of Navy acoustic testing as a "smoking gun" that shows new and high-power sonar systems can disorient and kill whales and other sea mammals. "You are never going to see any clearer evidence that active acoustics like those used by the Navy can cause whales to die," said Andrew Wetzler, an attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council. The council and other environmental groups have been challenging Navy underwater systems since the mid-1990s. "The Navy is trying to present this as something particular to beaked whales, but we think these systems are a danger to all whales," he said. Sixteen whales and dolphins became stranded on two beaches in the Bahamas in March, and seven of the animals ultimately died. Six of the dead animals were beaked whales, a relatively small (16 to 20 feet) and reclusive species known to dive deeper than most other whales. Few whale strandings have ever been explained, and most are never discovered. But the Bahamas stranding was reported quickly, and six of the seven dead animals were in good or excellent shape for necropsy, the animal equivalent of an autopsy. According to Ketten, the whales were in otherwise good health--showing no signs of disease, malnutrition or poisoning--when they became disoriented and stranded themselves. All six beaked whales had some evidence of tissue trauma associated with hearing, sound production, and air intake, the NOAA report said. The animals that died would have experienced the equivalent of a "really bad headache"--one that would send a human to the hospital, Ketten said. Many scientists believe that whales and other marine mammals can be harmed by the extremely high-decibel sounds created as part of the Navy's "active" sonar systems, but Ketten said Wednesday there wasn't enough evidence yet to make that direct connection in the Bahamas strandings.

Navy agrees to delay testing of sonar system
By Treena Shapiro
The Navy and the Hawaii County Green Party have agreed that there will be no testing of the Navy's controversial sonar system in Hawaiian waters until after the Navy completes its environmental impact statement and all interested parties have had time to respond.
In a hearing in federal court yesterday, Green Party attorney Lanny Sinkin asked U.S. District Judge Alan Kay to reopen a 1998 case that tried to stop the sonar testing, which the scientists and environmentalists have argued cause the endangered Hawaiian humpback whale to die, strand or change behavioral patterns.
Kay, who had dismissed the 1998 case, took the matter under advisement. In the meantime, however, Kay asked the Navy to prepare a stipulation stating that there would be no testing or deployment of the sonar system until after the environmental report is prepared. Both parties agreed, although the Navy asked that they be allowed to revisit the issue in court in case of an emergency that would force them to deploy the system.
In March, after the Navy tested sonar devices in the Bahamas, 17 whales stranded and nine died.
Last month, although the Navy denied that sonar tests caused the whales' distress, it canceled tests off the coast of New Jersey because the National Marine Fisheries Service could not concur that the tests caused no harm to endangered species.
Randall Young, representing the Navy, said there are currently no plans to deploy the system off the coast of Hawaii or anywhere else.

Whales sing long to sonar
BY NICK NUTTALL MALE humpback whales dramatically alter their mating songs in response to a ship's sonar, scientists have found.
The whales increase the length of their songs by nearly a third when they are exposed to these man-made, underwater, sounds.
Environmentalists yesterday called for long-term studies to be carried out in order to discover how ships' sonar sounds might be interfering with the breeding patterns of the great whales.
There has been speculation that sonar from ships and submarines may have an effect on marine life, especially animals such as whales, dolphins and porpoises, which use sounds to communicate, navigate and track down prey.
The scientists, based at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts and the Chicago Zoological Society, decided to test the theory by exposing male humpback whales to low frequency active sonar produced by a United States naval ship.
"During the breeding season the male humpback whales sing long, complex songs that are thought to be sexual displays," the team of scientists explained in the magazine Nature. "Songs consist of a series of themes, progressing in a very predictable order, that they may repeat for several hours."
Recordings from six male humpbacks were analysed before, during and after exposure to the sonar. The researchers found that, on average, the males sang 29 per cent longer when the sonar was on.
"We suggest that humpbacks sang longer songs during low frequency active sonar transmissions to compensate for acoustic interference," the scientists said.
Sarah Dolman, science officer for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, said yesterday: "What we need to find out is if this is having an effect on the long-term breeding patterns of humpback whales."

Subject: The Future of Whaling is in our hands...
The future of the world's whales still hangs in the balance as countries
like Japan and Norway continue to push to revive commercial whaling. The
next stage in this struggle will take place at next week's International
Whaling Commission meeting in Australia.
Greenpeace is campaigning for the establishment of a South Pacific Whale
Sanctuary. We have the support of the nations in the region, including
Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific island nations. But Japan is
opposing us, and is pressuring countries to oppose the resolution. Frankly,
the vote is hanging in the balance, and it currently looks like we will
lose by an agonizingly small handful of votes.
As a last minute effort, we have chosen three "swing" countries who could
be encouraged to vote for the resolution: Ireland, and the Caribbean island
nations of Dominica, and St. Kitts and Nevis. THESE THREE COUNTRIES COULD
MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE ...
We have set up a cyberalert that faxes and emails messages to the Prime
Ministers of these nations at:
This is truly one instance where cyberaction could make a difference. The
crucial vote is on July 4th. If thousands of emails and faxes reach these
leaders in the next week, it would show them the global support there is
for the South Pacific Whale Sanctuary.
Please take a couple of minutes and send a message today. Please send this
alert to all your friends and colleagues as well. We need as many messages
to be sent as possible in the next week.

In a 1988 experiment, an unconventional solid-state vacuum triode amplifier developed by the late Floyd Sweet continuously discharged 1,200,000 times more electrical power than was fed into it. It also exhibited anti-gravity properties. It is but one of many ( see more at http://www.cseti.org/position/addition/oulist.htm ) such "over-unity" (or "negative resistor" more at : http://www.cseti.org/position/addition/negresistor.htm ) devices never to see mass development. This technology for extracting free energy from the vacuum has been well understood by a High Cabal for around a century, and this is the same energy that powers ET craft. The suppression and weaponization of this knowledge and its associated technologies, essential for civilization's enlightened advancement, is the root cause of the secrecy, lies and disinformation about the UFO subject.
But this is nothing new...
