O.W.S. On The Move (Prayer Vigil)

The Occupy Wall Street movement continues this week as the weather here in
New York drops close to freezing temperature. The protesters are determined
to carry on the the fight through the winter.

Police present as usual has been heavy as this test of wills drags on day after
with no let up in site.

Though the siege in Wall Street to some may seem and eye sore, there is much
of festive activity with music & song reminiscent of the movements of the 60s.

Prayer & spirituality has been a constant daily with the protesters.....

O.W.S. On The Move (Globalism)

From one side of the globe to the other, protesters have taken to the streets. Whether they are inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York or by the cries in England and other countries in Europe, they burn with dissatisfaction about the state of the economy, about the unfair way that the poor are paying for the sins and wickedness of the rich bankers, and in some cases about capitalist ideal itself.

Once upon a time it was easy for western politicians and economic liberals to dismiss this as bally who by a misguide fringe group of mindless people. The protester this time have 
different aims in different countries. Higher taxes for the rich and a loathing of financiers is the closest thing to a common denominator, though in America polls show that popular rage against government overshadow that against Wall Street.

The statistics report,  In America 17.1% of those below 25 are out of work. Across the European Union, youth unemployment averages 20.9%. In Spain it is a staggering 46.2%. Only in Germany, the Netherlands and Austria is the rate in single digits.

It's no doubt in my mind as I travel around the city and break bread with the protesters down in Wall Street they all have an urgency that something must be done now an it will not go away and be shelved as in the past.

This populist movement can go anywhere in this globalist society that we live as the grievances are broader and wider in scope.

OWS On The Move

Protests and actions inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement proliferated around New York City after thousands of demonstrators made headlines around the world by taking over Zuccotti Park in Wall Street and marched on Times Square here in New York.

Protesters in a number of cities, especially New York, have rallied against what they describe as corporate greed, arrogance and power, and have asserted that the nation's wealthiest 1% hold inordinate sway over the rest of the population.

The movement has drawn criticism from some politicians who have characterized it as counterproductive, jumbled and misguided. Others, though, have lent their support and said the protesters are voicing legitimate, widespread frustrations regarding the nation's current economic and political situation.

In image processing, computer graphics, and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminance between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods. This wide dynamic range allows HDR images to more accurately represent the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight.
