Health and well-being benefits of plants
Concentration and Memory. Being around plants helps people concentrate better in the home and workplace. Studies show that tasks performed while under the calming influence of nature are performed better and with greater accuracy, yielding a higher quality result. Moreover, being outside in a natural environment can improve memory performance and attention span by twenty percent.
Flowers Generate Happiness. Having flowers around the home and office greatly improves people’s moods and reduces the likelihood of stress-related depression. Flowers and ornamental plants increase levels of positive energy and help people feel secure and relaxed.
Health and Recreation. Access to parks and recreational activities is positively correlated with rates of physical activity, which improves mood and contributes to overall healthiness. Health care costs are subsequently reduced.
Accelerates Healing Process. The presence of plants in hospital recovery rooms and/or views of aesthetically-pleasing gardens help patients to heal faster, due to the soothing affects of ornamental horticulture.
Improved Human Performance/Energy. Spending time in natural environments makes people better at doing their jobs. It also increases energy levels and feelings of vitality.

I believe what he does and has done is a good thing. The detractors can scream and fight and paint whatever pictures they like. His charges are psychotic to me, broken condom and using his "celebrity" to get sex are not rape. The concepts of those laws are broken entirely.
I was frigging around with that kind of a idea for a post where I was going to ask the members to build their dream team round table . The open chair would be for what politician or personality you would want to put into the hot seat ,or not so hot .
That said, there's needs to be a New Media outlet that gives the Real Journalists a place to run hard hitting truth shows the likes of which Assange should have a show on.
