It gives you perspective: By observing your mind, you realize you don’t have to be slave to it. You realize it throws tantrums, gets grumpy, jealous, happy and sad but that it doesn’t have to run you. Meditation is quite simply mental hygiene: clear out the junk, tune your talents, and get in
The foundation of good sales technique is making a real connection with your customer. When you focus on your customer with a positive attitude, you’re already winning.
Gary Webb interview with Gary Null from July 1998 Author of Dark Alliance The late investigative journalist Gary Webb, subject of the new film about Gary Webb Movie – Kill The Messenger, was the subject of persecution from mainstream media when he published his groundbreaking report Dark Alliance detailing CIA awareness of contra drug trafficking. In this interview Gary Webb …
I saw that McDonald’s wasn’t the only food company giving away freebies. Cheerful reps at the Hershey’s booth passed out miniature cartons of chocolate and strawberry milk. Butter Buds offered packets of fake butter crystals. The California Beef Council guy gave me a pamphlet on how to lose weight by eating steak. Amy’s Naturals had microwave brownies. The night before, Sizzler, California Pizza Kitchen, Boston Market, and other chain restaurants had hosted a free evening buffet for conference-goers: “Local Restaurant Samplings for Your Pleasure.”
Most so-called “conspiracy theorists” are really skeptics, by definition. They’re skeptical of what the government tells them. They’re skeptical of the claim that drug companies are really only interested in helping humankind and have no desire to make money. They’re skeptical that food corporations are telling them the truth about what’s in their food. And they’re also skeptical of anything coming out of Washington D.C., regardless of
Mega-brand mergers have also led to companies taking more unexpected brands into the fold. Many shoppers may know food giant ConAgra owns brands like Hunt’s Manwich and Banquet frozen dinners, but what they might not know is that the ConAgra foodiverse now includes brands like
Food prices are getting out of control. As meats, dairy, and eggs climb to record high prices and over 50 million Americans are now on public food assistance, family budgets are being stretched like never before just to survive
Monsanto is the company that told us that PCBs were safe. They were convicted of actually poisoning people in their town next to the PCB factory, and fined $700 million. They told us that Agent Orange was safe. They told us that DDT was safe, and now
One hundred million people are on psychiatric drugs. 40 years ago, the use of psychiatric drugs was extremely rare and there was a real debate as to whether it was ethical to use them even on severely disturbed psychiatric patients.
In other words, how much mercury are Americans getting from their fillings, and how much mercury equals too much? According to the FDA, Americans are not getting too much mercury from their fillings, and according to the petitioners — and the 2011 study — they are. Love, the petitioners’ lawyer, feels, “It’s beyond debate based on the weight of the evidence that
Yes there are quite a few ‘crazy’ theories, but the fact also is that much of science has been hijacked by corporations with their own agenda, meaning they also put out their own ‘science’. Try finding a corporate study of GMO’s over 90 days. The fact is they cut the studies off there because it take time to develop the problems associated with GMO foods. I’m not against GMO’s per say, but the way Monsanto has gone about it, well, it’s
There’s a lesson to be learned for future crop traits, Shields said. Rootworm resistance was expected from the outset, but the Bt seed industry, seeking to maximize short-term profits, ignored outside scientists. The next pest-fighting trait “will fall under the same pressure,” said Shields, “and the insect will win. Always bet on the insect if there is not a smart deployment of
The average loss in IQ was reported as a standardized weighted mean difference of 0.45, which would be approximately equivalent to seven IQ points for commonly used IQ scores with a standard deviation of 15. Some studies suggested that even slightly increased fluoride exposure could be toxic to the brain. Thus, children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas.
The inability of citizens to know the law poses a very large problem in our democracy. To be informed of the law one needs free and easy access to it. What if dedicated citizens want to educate themselves and others on the many technical standards that govern the infrastructure we all regularly use? What if citizen watchdogs want to engage in debate on
Employers are justifiably fed up with college graduates lacking basic knowledge, to say nothing of good work habits and intellectual discipline. Yet the perennial impulse toward bureaucratic command-and-control solutions, such as universal standardized testing or standardized grade-point averages, only leads in
A new study linking sugar and increased risk of dying from heart problems may have you thinking twice about digging in to that Valentine’s Day candy box. It may seem like a logical connection—after all, individuals with high sugar intakes are far more likely to be overweight or obese, a significant contributor to heart disease. But researchers from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that people who eat too much added sugar (the kind not found naturally in fruit) are more prone to heart problems, regardless of
GMOs have been deployed to privatize knowledge and seeds through patents. This is blocking public research on plant breeding and denying farmers the right to save seeds, to share knowledge and continue the evolution of the seed

The Big Electron – Is this real – or is it a ride? Bill Hicks And George Carlin bits Don’t worry, Don’t be afraid Its just a ride It’s only a choice, between fear and love
JP Morgan Chase penalized $2.6 billion over connections to Madoff, the “robber barons” of today & how little the New York Times cares for the “Names of the Dead”. Why get upset!?
Some foreign suppliers of crops have been caught with fraudulent organic certificates in recent years. Premium prices are likely the motivation for the forgeries. A sloppy forgery doomed an attempt by Monaz Manufacturing and Supply Services to pass off its
By Dr. Gary Null, PhD November 22, 2013 There’s nothing like a glass of cool, clear water to quench one’s thirst. But the next time you or your child reaches for one, you might want to question whether that water is in fact, too toxic to drink. If your water is fluoridated, the answer may well be yes. For decades, …
