Remembering Carl Sagan on Earth Day
Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 27 Apr 2020

22 Apr 2020 – The excerpt below is from Carl Sagan’s book, Pale Blue Dot, and it was inspired by an image recorded by Voyager-1 on 14 Feb 1990. As the spacecraft was leaving the solar system for its no-return outer-space exploration trip, NASA technicians redirected the camera for a last photo of Planet Earth behind. Voyager was about 6.4 billion kilometers (4 billion miles) away when it captured this unique, historical, unflattering portrait of the world. Among light rays from the Sun, our Earth appears as a tiny, almost invisible point of light 0.12 pixel in size in the beam to the right of the frame. The landmark photo was by Sagan’s request.

8 Dec 2019 – Julian Assange, founder and publisher of WikiLeaks, is currently detained in the UK and faces extradition to the USA and criminal prosecution under the Espionage Act. WikiLeaks’ War Diaries provided evidence that the US government committed war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq.

This case stands at the heart of the principle of free speech and free press.

Reconstructing Nonviolence: A New Theory and Action for a Post-Secular Society
Posted by Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Sep 2019

Nonviolent methods of action have been a powerful tool since the early 20th century for social protest and revolutionary social and political change, and there is diffuse awareness that nonviolence is an efficient spontaneous choice of movements, individuals, and whole nations. Yet from a conceptual standpoint, nonviolence struggles to engage with key contemporary political issues: the role of religion in a post-secular world; the crisis of democracy; and the use of supposedly ‘nonviolent techniques’ for violent aims.

Johan Galtung, a Pioneer: Conceptualizing Peace Journalism
Antonio C. S. Rosa, M.A. | Editor - TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Oct 2018

Before the 19th century, we had “disease journalists” who reported in detail how epidemics were spreading and how people suffered. Today we have “health journalists” who write about current research on new cures and therapies, and inform about healthy lifestyles promoting health as a value. Similarly, the time has come for “peace journalists” to write not only about war, but also about its causes, prevention, and ways to restore peace by nonviolent means and promoting peace as a value. They need not invent themselves solutions to conflicts–in the same way that health journalists need not invent cures for diseases themselves; they ask specialists.

(Italiano) La rivoluzione delle sessualità
Johan Galtung & Antonio C. S. Rosa | Centro Studi Sereno Regis – TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 Jul 2017

Kinsey ha avuto un ruolo importante. Molto solido, molto empirico, vasto, esauriente, avversato da qualche chiesa e senz’altro da qualche patriarca. Ma ha prevalso la scienza… Purtroppo si confonde generalmente il sesso con l’amore, sia in letteratura sia nella realtà. Il sesso è un piacere effimero dei genitali — di qualunque specie. L’amore è emozione, energia, sinergia fra due esseri umani. Amore e sesso sono complemento reciproco ma non si sostituiscono l’un l’altro, essendo di natura squisitamente differente.

The Sexualities Revolution
Johan Galtung and Antonio C. S. Rosa – TRANSCEND Media Service, 17 Jul 2017

Kinsey played a major role. Very solid, very empirical, vast, comprehensive, fought by some churches and no doubt by some patriarchs. But science prevailed… Unfortunately sex is generally confused with love both in literature and in reality. Sex is ephemeral pleasure of the genitalia—any genitalia. Love is emotion, energy, synergy between two human beings. Love and sex complement but do not replace each other, being of utterly different natures.
