In February 1975, a group of geneticists gathered in a tiny town on the central coast of California to decide if their work would bring about the end of the world. These researchers were just beginning to explore the science of genetic engineering, manipulating DNA to create organisms that didn’t exist in nature, and they were unsure how these techniques would affect the health of the planet and its people. So, they descended on a coastal retreat called Asilomar, a name that became synonymous with the guidelines they laid down at this meeting—a strict ethical framework meant to ensure that biotechnology didn’t unleash the apocalypse.

That real, life-sized mech Korean company Hankook Mirae debuted recently isn’t just for show. Its designer, Hollywood SFX veteran Vitaly Bulgarov, has posted a video on Facebook showing the robot taking its first steps. And, yes, it had a pilot on board. The 13-feet-tall, 1.3-ton machine was created to work in extreme conditions where humans cannot go unprotected. It won’t be able to go on rescue missions anytime soon, though – not without a power source that’s portable enough.

Each passing minute, the soil is assaulted, suffocated, contaminated, exploited, poisoned, mistreated, and depleted. In Europe, there is no longer a specific law that protects the soil.
Safeguarding the soil with laws is on of primary ways of protecting people, plants, and animals. Without healthy, alive soil, there is no future. Healthy, alive soil protects us from environmental disasters, from climate change, from poisons all around.
More than 400 associations have joined together as part of the People4Soil [2] coalition which asks the EU for specific regulations to protect the soil, which is as essential to life as water and air.

The behavior of cooperation-empathy-virtue also has a healthy benefit. In his book The Stress of Life, published in 1956, Professor Hans Selye wrote that one way to reduce the harmful effects of bad stress (distress) is to cooperate with each other. Such a reciprocal behavior reminds a biblical statemen: “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Luke 6: 31). Likewise, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrates that the same brain structures and molecules mediate altruism, cooperation and pleasure. Thus scientists are beginning to decode the Golden Rule of reciprocity,* whereas we are still living in the atmosphere of insufficiency of social, political and personal ethics of cooperation, obonato and empathy.
