The drug industry buys the professors first, then chiefs of department, then the other chief physicians and so on. They don’t buy junior doctors. –Dr Peter Gøtzsche
Big Pharma drugs kill around 200,000 Americans every year – half of them die while doing what their doctors told them. Sadly, the side effects and medical errors combine to cause the 3rd leading cause of death in America. Continue reading Dr Peter Gøtzsche Exposes Big Pharma as Organized Crime

(ANTIMEDIA) A federal appeals court has unanimously reversed part of a lower court’s dismissal of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union for Wikimedia, which challenges the NSA’s mass surveillance and collection of internet communications.
The suit was originally filed in 2015 by the ACLU on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation, Amnesty International, and Human Rights Watch, among others, and centered around the NSA’s “Upstream” surveillance program, which intercepts data from the internet backbone cables carrying the online messages, web searches, and emails of U.S. citizens. Upstream operates under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, a statute the government uses to conduct warrantless surveillance on Americans who communicate with targets located outside of the United States.

Where these two roads intersect is the holy ground of transformation, it’s the place where we have to drop our one-track thinking and see the many roads. Practicing yoga means to be at the crossroads. Continue reading Yoga: The Practice of Being at the Crossroads

Kjell Inge Røkke, a Norwegian billionaire, one of the richest men in his country, and previously known as “a ruthless corporate raider” is giving away $2.7 billion of his fortune to build a mega-yacht that will help clean plastic from our oceans.
Røkke made his billions in off-shore drilling and shipping companies, but now he wants to clean up the plastic that is choking marine life and making our oceans a sea of death.
He wants to build a 596-foot vessel, called the REV, that will clean 5 tons of plastic trash daily from waters and then melt it down , Norway’s Aftenposten newspaper reported. It would be large enough to travel around the world to make autonomous expeditions gathering trash and measuring the ocean’s health.

Many if not most of us were taught from a very young age that life is very hard and unfair, a constant struggle, and that as humans we really can’t trust one another or even ourselves for that matter.
Furthermore, if this isn’t our experience, then we must be doing something wrong and we don’t deserve to be happy. And while we can hopefully entertain that this isn’t exactly the healthiest outlook to pass on, I don’t feel that we intend to necessarily cause harm by demonstrating this to our children.

You’d think we’d be more connected than ever, but even with a million ways to reach out and touch someone, social media notwithstanding, we’re more alone than ever. Sadly, new research suggests that pervasive loneliness is worse for our health than smoking. WOW. You read that right. You can die from loneliness – but read on and we’ll make sure that doesn’t happen.
Aside from making us feel miserable, what can loneliness do to our health? Researchers have been looking at this question for at least a decade now, and their findings are shocking. People who consistently feel lonely are much more likely to die early. Continue reading Loneliness is Bigger Health Risk than Smoking in Age of Social Media

Over the past few years, more and more promising research has been emerging on the efficacy of using MDMA to treat mental illness, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The results of these studies so far have been overwhelmingly positive, and major breakthroughs have been made.
However, one significant roadblock still stands in the way of MDMA becoming an accepted treatment for mental illness: MDMA remains a Schedule 1 substance in North America, which means it’s not only highly illegal, but deemed to have no medical value whatsoever.

I’m taking Sue Lie’s Multidimensional Leadership Training at the same time I’m taking Linda Dillon’s The Inspired Self webinar. And the Tsunami of Love has been ramped up.
I don’t know what’s causing it – I like to think the two courses – but I’m having major insights and readjustments. (1)
One of them occurred three hours after Sue’s course this morning. Continue reading Losing the Mental Chatter
