Atakapa Trace Junction: The Sunset People and the Sunrise People


Atakapa-Ishak Nation Struggles with BP Gulf Oil Spill
"There has to be a respect for life."

Rosina Phillipe: "We are subsistence still. We have not given up that way of life. We live totally from the land. Everything we need is here in this environment. We have to respect nature. There has to be a respect for life. How long can nature continue to try to recover from what we try to do to it? This is what people have done".

A boy, Jake Phillips: "They (the animals) are dying from it (the BP Gulf Oil Spill). The animals depend on us and we depend on them".

"We, the Atakapa-Ishak (uh-TAK-uh-paw - ee-SHAK), are a Southwest Louisiana/Southeast Texas tribe of ancient Indians who lived in the Gulf of Mexico's northwestern crescent and called ourselves Ishak. The name means The People."

More about the Atakapa-Ishak Nation of southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas here.

Ray Kurzweil Speaks at Singularity University: Disruptive Change (Video) *Creating transcendent events in the world*

▲▲▲




Singularity University Opening Ceremony for 2010 Summer Session

Ray Kurzweil presents opening remarks and the goal of Singularity University to create transcendent effects in the world. The tools of innovation, creativity, and disruptive change are now in everyone's hands, that is, the technology that creates transcendent events and effects, that change the world, are readily available. It took 400 years from invention for the printing press to affect a significant part of the population, the telephone took 50 years, the cell phone took 7 years, then internet social networks took only 3 years. The world can now be affected very quickly with very inexpensive tools.
