by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

An animal shelter is appealing to people who play Pokemon Go to take part in the virtual scavenger hunt while walking adoptable dogs. So far, it’s been a huge success!

If you’ve taken a stroll through your city’s streets lately, chances are you’ve come across hoards of people sitting in groups, staring at their phones.

In case you didn’t know what the cause of this is, it’s an app called Pokemon Go that lets people search and collect virtual characters from the Pokemon show in their neighborhood, using their phone screen to spot the creatures.

Not only has the game brought many diverse types of people together, it’s inspiring a large percent of the public who utilizes the app to get more active.

The app hasn’t even been out for a week, but it’s become a sensation. So much so, the Muncie Animal Shelter decided to recruit players of Pokemon Go to walk shelter dogs as they take part in the virtual scavenger hunt.

Rock Star Sammy Hagar’s Encounter With 9th Dimensional Beings

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.
Editor, In5D.com

It takes a lot of guts for someone of public stature to come out and speak about their experiences with UFO sightings. It takes even more guts to talk about your experiences with extraterrestrials. Sammy Hagar is one of these people who I greatly admire, not only for his music and selfless contributions to humanity but for his openness about his extraterrestrial contact.

In an interview with Guitar World magazine, Hagar said:

“I’m a firm believer – have seen, have felt, have been contacted 3 or 4 different times. I have received information that has been valuable in my life from those people, and they have used me.

These People Are Using Plastic Water Bottles To Cool Their Homes, And The Method Is Brilliant!

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

The simple invention is the world’s first-ever ‘zero electricity’ air conditioner.

Chances are that if you’re reading this, you’re one of the lucky individuals on this planet who has access to electricity and can harness tools, such as Air Conditioning (AC), to stay cool during hot, summer months.

Not everyone is so fortunate, however, which is why an inventor named Ashis Paul developed an ingenious solution to help those in rural, poverty-stricken locations – specifically residents in Bangladesh – cool off.

In three months, Paul’s company developed Eco Coolers, smart powerless air conditioners which don’t require any electricity. Already, 25,000 households around the world are outfitted with an Eco Cooler system, and that number is expected to grow. Many of the systems are behind utilized by Bangladeshi people.

The simple invention is reportedly the world’s first-ever ‘zero electricity’ air conditioner.

Owl Can’t Stop Hugging The Man Who Saved Her After Car Accident

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

GiGi the owl made fast friends with her rescuer and greeted him with a hug after he returned from a trip.

Last month, a Great Horned owl named GiGi was taken to Mississippi’s Wild at Heart Rescue after suffering significant head trauma. The specialists suspected she had been hit by a car, resulting in a massive concussion.

Gigi was not only riddled with parasites, she was found to have aspergillosis, which is similar to pneumonia in humans. Missy Dubuisson, the founder and director of the Rescue, told The Dodo: 

“This bird was one of the most critical we have ever taken care of, the fact that this bird has lived is beyond comprehension.”

If it hadn’t been for Douglas Pojeky, president of the facility, Gigi may have never received the extensive care she needed. It seems the owl was well aware of this, as she quickly bonded to Pojeky, who is referred to as the “birds of prey whisperer” by rehabilitators in the area.

Put an End to War in Yourself

To put an end to outward war, you must begin to put an end to war in yourself. Some of you will nod your heads and say, 'I agree,' and go outside and do exactly the same as you have been doing for the last ten or twenty years. Your agreement is merely verbal and has no significance, for the world's miseries and wars are not going to be stopped by your casual assent.They will be stopped only when you realize the danger, when you realize your responsibility, when you do not leave it to somebody else. If you realize the suffering, if you see the urgency of immediate action and do not postpone, then you will transform yourself. Peace will come only when you yourself are peaceful, when you yourself are at peace with your neighbor.

[Watch] John Oliver Purchases $15 Million In Medical Debt And Forgives It On TV

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

The host of Last Week Tonight and his team set out to expose the shady practices of debt collectors and ended up forgiving 9,000 peoples’ medical expenses in the process.

Recently, on a segment of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the host and his team exposed the shady practices of debt collectors and, in the process, ended up protecting 9,000 people from annoying, harassing - and even illegal - agency calls and letters.

Oliver first began by explaining that companies are willing to sell old, uncollected debts for next to nothing. This is because the debt is actually expired and, in effect, people are no longer required by law to pay it. Debt collectors know that and pursue it anyways, because when a debtor makes a payment, all their debt is back on the table.

It’s a dirty business, which is why the television host did what he does best: he exposed it in humorous - and mind-blowing - fashion.

5 Unexpected Ways the Inflated Ego Enslaves, Dominates, and Fools You

by Altheia Luna, Lonerwolf.com

One of the simplest truths of life is this: The bigger your ego is, the bigger your problems are.

In fact, the size of your ego directly correlates to the size of your struggles and burdens in life. So take a moment to reflect on your current life: how much are you suffering? If your answer is “WAY too much,” don’t worry, most of us feel the same way. Why? Because we haven’t learned to distinguish the voice of the ego from the voice of the Soul.

Sol and I sent out an email the other night asking you guys to share with us some of the most vital problems and topics of interest you have right now. The subject of the inflated ego came up so often that we just had to write about it today. ;)

Do You Have an Inflated Ego?

Ironically we cringe at this question so much that it instantly makes us go into denial mode. “NO … I have quite a normal ego thank you,” we are prone to think. Then, we might proceed to hunt for a person in our lives that we can feel angry and self-righteous towards, and start ruminating on how much we detest their inflated ego.

Funny don’t you think?

The ego denies the existence of the ego, and the ego likes to find someone else to blame, which is precisely why we continue ending up in the same depressing emotional ruts over and over again. When we refuse to acknowledge the extent to which our ego runs our lives, we fail to ever authentically grow or find deep peace in life.

The Psychology Of Control Freaks

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.

Editor, In5D.com

Why do people feel the need to control others and what lessons can we learn from both sides of this dilemma?

Controlling people generally fall into the Type A personality classification. These people are controlling, very competitive, self-critical, experience a constant sense of urgency, can be easily aroused to the point of anger, thrive on attention, and are generally extroverts.

Type B personalities are generally laid bad, relaxed, easy going, reclusive, and are generally introverts.

We’ve all known that Type A controlling personality at some point in our lives. For me, my mother fits into this category. Despite her controlling ways, I love her with all of my heart. I know that ultimately, she only wants the best for her children. At a young age, my mother lost her mother to cancer, so she really didn’t have a role model to guide her. She became “the woman of the house” for my grandfather, who expected my mother to cook, clean, and do all of the household chores. My grandfather’s expectations of my mother are most likely the reason why she’s a Type A personality.

Empirical Evidence: Researchers Finally Confirm There Is Life After Death

by Amando Flavio, AnonHQ

The mystery of death is not to be told. It is something to be experienced. We all know one thing for sure: we are all going to die one day. And when we do die, we may not get the opportunity to come back and explain our experience.

Many religions believe in life after death. It is said the soul goes out of the body to live a new life in the spiritual realm. A wicked person is sent to hell to be tormented by a blazing fire, while a righteous person is sent to heaven to live an eternal and joyful life.

However, scientists believe that this religious interpretation of death is just a mythology. Some researchers have therefore devoted themselves to unravelling this mystery. The starting point: establish that there is some sort of life after death.

At the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, researchers have confirmed in a new study that there is indeed life after death. The study has been published in the online journal Resuscitation.

This Man Turned A Dying River Into A Region Teeming With Life

by Brianna Blaschke, True Activist

Frustrated with his local government's disregard of a sacred river, one determined man restored their dumping ground back to its original beauty.

Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal had had enough. In 2000, he decided it was time to clean up the Kali Bein River in the sacred region of the Hoshiarpur district of Punjab. This region had been used for centuries as a dumping ground for human waste and garbage, with local governments paying no heed to the sacredness of this Sikh waterway.

Seechewal’s attempt to convince the government to discontinue all waste dumping into the river fell on deaf ears, as they refused to make any legislation that would suit his convictions; he responded by summoning the Sikh tradition of free voluntary service, called kar sewa.
