Stay Young


Stay Young My Friend

We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are!

HOW TO STAY YOUNG

1.. Try everything twice.
On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph: "Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!"

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever...
Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

6.. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love: whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever..
Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips..
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

I love you, my special friend! ♥

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance..

Remember! Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Wine does not make you FAT .... it makes you LEAN .....
(against tables, chairs, floors, walls and ugly people.)

Miraculous Onions

 ONIONS

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.
  Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't
believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser. She said that several
years ago, many of her employees were coming down with the flu, and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work. Try it and see what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.

Now there is a P. S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with this most interesting experience about onions:

Thanks for the reminder. I don't know about the farmer's story...but, I do know that I contacted pneumonia, and, needless to say, I was very ill... I came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion put it into an empty jar, and place the jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in the morning from the germs. ..sure enough it happened
just like that...the onion was a mess and I began to feel better.

Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.

This is the other note.

Lots of times when we have stomach problems we don't know what to blame. Maybe it's the onions that are to blame. Onions absorb bacteria is the reason they are so good at preventing us from getting colds and flu and is the very reason we shouldn't eat an onion that has been sitting for a time after it has been cut open.

LEFT OVER ONIONS ARE POISONOUS

I had the wonderful privilege of touring Mullins Food Products, Makers of mayonnaise. Questions about food poisoning came up, and I wanted to share what I learned from a chemist.

Ed, who was our tour guide, is a food chemistry whiz. During the tour, someone asked if we really needed to worry about mayonnaise. People are always worried that mayonnaise will spoil. Ed's answer will surprise you. Ed said that all commercially-made mayo is completely safe.

"It doesn't even have to be refrigerated. No harm in refrigerating it, but it's not really necessary." He explained that the pH in mayonnaise is set at a point that bacteria could not survive in that environment. He then talked about the summer picnic, with the bowl of potato salad sitting on the table, and how everyone blames the mayonnaise when someone gets sick.

Ed says that, when food poisoning is reported, the first thing the officials look for is when the 'victim' last ate ONIONS and where those onions came from (in the potato salad?). Ed says it's not the mayonnaise (as long as it's not homemade mayo) that spoils in the outdoors. It's probably the ONIONS, and if not the onions, it's the POTATOES.

He explained onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked onions. You should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion.. He says it's not even safe if you put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in your refrigerator.

It's already contaminated enough just by being cut open and out for a bit, that it can be a danger to you (and doubly watch out for those onions you put in your hotdogs at the baseball park!). Ed says if you take the leftover onion and cook it like crazy you'll probably be okay, but if you slice that leftover onion and put on your sandwich, you're asking for trouble. Both the onions and the moist potato in a potato salad, will attract and grow bacteria faster than any commercial mayonnaise will even begin to break down.

Also, dogs should never eat onions. Their stomachs cannot metabolize onions.

Please remember it is dangerous to cut an onion and try to use it to cook the next day, it becomes highly poisonous for even a single night and creates toxic bacteria which may cause adverse stomach infections because of excess bile secretions and even food poisoning.

Cinnamon and Honey


Cinnamon and Honey


Cinnamon and Honey
Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey... However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call "crystallizing".   When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Cinnamon and Honey
Bet the drug companies won't like this one getting around.  Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:  It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.  Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.   Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES:
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada , various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS:
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

CHOLESTEROL:
Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours.   As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS:
Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

UPSET STOMACH:
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

GAS:
According to the studies done in India and Japan , it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM:
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION:
Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA:
A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ' Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu..

LONGEVITY:
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

PIMPLES:
Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS:
Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

WEIGHT LOSS:
Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER:
Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.

FATIGUE:
Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body.. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

BAD BREATH:
People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS:
Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Never Aluminum Foil for your next B B Q !!!!!!!

Never Aluminum Foil for your next B B Q !!!!!!!

Stop Doing This With Aluminum Foil

Stop Doing This With Aluminum Foil
A recent study has shown that heat causes aluminum from the foil to leach out into foods in significantly harmful amounts.1

Aluminum Accumulates in the Bones and in the Brain

The researchers found dangerously high levels of aluminum in foods after being cooked, reheated. The cause for alarm is that when aluminum accumulates in the body, it can lead to osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.
What’s more, Dr. Zubaidy, one of the study authors, comments that:
“The higher the temperature, the more the leaching. Foil is not suitable for cooking and is not suitable for using with vegetables like tomatoes, citrus juice or spices.”2
On the other hand, the researchers also noted that foil can be considered safe to wrap cold foods, since no leaching was observed without heating. They also did not find a difference if the shiny or dull side were in contact with food.

Aluminum Competes With Calcium, Weakening Bones

High aluminum levels in the body alter bone mineralization, matrix formation, as well as parathyroid and bone cell activity.3 Ironically, one of the most common signs of excessive aluminum accumulation is hypercalcemia or high calcium levels in the blood.
This happens because the presence of aluminum impedes calcium deposition in bone, thus leading to elevated blood calcium levels.3 As a result, PTH secretion, the hormone secreted by the parathyroid hormone, is greatly depressed.3 Additionally, chronic aluminum toxicity greatly reduces osteoblast population and inhibits bone mineralization, resulting in osteoporosis.3

Mounting Evidence Links Aluminum to Alzheimer’s

While the study is less adamant about the link between aluminum and Alzheimer’s than it is about the osteoporosis connection, it does point to evidence that aluminum is deposited in brain tissue. The researchers note that previous studies have found an aluminum build-up in autopsies performed on Alzheimer’s sufferers.

Protect Your Bones and Your Brain

In view of this, you really should avoid using aluminum foil or aluminum utensils for cooking. So here are a few simple steps you can take right away:
  • Never cook, hleat up, or place hot food on aluminum foil. Use foil only to store cold food in the refrigerator, or to wrap cold sandwiches. I use tempered glass pans. They are easily available in just about every supermarket or hardware store.
  • Avoid storing tomatoes, citrus fruits, or spices in foil.
  • Replace foil with wax paper if you wish to store food while still hot. Or use glass food storage containers. I keep a variety of sizes handy in my kitchen.
  • Never use aluminum pots or cooking utensils. Instead, invest in stainless steel pots and pans.
As you can see, it’s easy to avoid aluminum in the kitchen.

Βάλτε λίγη φιλοσοφία στη ζωή

Βάλτε λίγη φιλοσοφία στη ζωή

Ήταν κάποτε ένας γιατρός.
Μια μέρα φεύγοντας από την πόλη που έμενε, για να πάει σε μια άλλη
γειτονική όπου είχε δουλειά, συνάντησε την πανούκλα, που έμπαινε.
Σταμάτησε και την ρώτησε:
«Πάλι εδώ; Τι ήρθες να κάνεις;»
Και η πανούκλα απάντησε: «Είναι η σειρά μου».
«Πόσους θα πάρεις αυτή τη φορά;» ρώτησε ο γιατρός.
«Λίγους, γύρω στους χίλιους», απάντησε η πανούκλα.

Μετά από μια εβδομάδα ο γιατρός (έχοντας ενημερωθεί εν τω μεταξύ για

την κατάσταση στην πόλη του) επέστρεψε, και στην είσοδο της πόλης
αντάμωσε την πανούκλα, που έφευγε.
«Μου είπες ψέματα», της είπε.
«Είχες πει ότι θα πάρεις κάπου χίλιους και τελικά πέθαναν πέντε χιλιάδες !».
Κι εκείνη απάντησε: «Δεν είπα ψέματα.  Εγώ πήρα μόνο χίλιους.
Τους υπόλοιπους τους σκότωσε το άγχος και ο φόβος» !.....

Το άγχος και ο φόβος είναι περισσότερο θανατηφόρα από την πανούκλα, που βιώνουμε.
Τις περισσότερες φορές ο φόβος, 
μήπως συμβεί το χειρότερο είναι
χειρότερος από το να συμβεί το χειρότερο !.....

Στη ζωή μας βιώνουμε εκατομμύρια καταστροφές από τις οποίες η

συντριπτική πλειοψηφία δεν συμβαίνει ποτέ. Τις βιώνουμε μόνο στο μυαλό μας.
Συλλογικά και ατομικά όλοι κάτι φοβόμαστε: τη χρεοκοπία, την απόλυση,
την κατάρρευση του ευρώ, τους ιούς, τους χωρισμούς, μήπως πέσει ο
ουρανός στα κεφάλια μας.
Ο φόβος όμως δυστυχώς είναι το πιο αποτελεσματικό εργαλείο πολιτικής
χειραγώγησης. Το δηλητήριο, που παραλύει τη δράση και την αντίσταση
στην επέλαση οποιασδήποτε εξουσίας.
Η υπερβολική ανησυχία οδηγεί σε ακινησία.
Αν αρχίσουμε να ζούμε, στη στιγμή ο φόβος εξαφανίζεται.

Ο κάθε φόβος έρχεται μέσα από μια επιθυμία .

Έτσι αν αρχίσουμε να παρατηρούμε τον εαυτό μας, θα διαπιστώσουμε ποια
επιθυμία είναι αυτή, που τον δημιουργεί και αν είμαστε αρκετά
συνειδητοί θα διακρίνουμε τη ματαιότητα, που κρύβεται πίσω από αυτή την
επιθυμία.
Ο φόβος επίσης προέρχεται από την ανασφάλεια μας για το αύριο.
Το αύριο όμως πάντα θα είναι ανασφαλές. Η ζωή είναι όμορφη και ποικίλη, επειδή
είναι ανασφαλής. Η ανασφάλεια χρωματίζει με ομορφιά τη ζωή μας.
Η ζωή είναι όμορφη γιατί έχει ανατροπές. Δεν είναι δεδομένη.
Η ζωή είναι όμορφη, γιατί υπάρχει ο θάνατος.
Η ζωή έχει αξία, γιατί μπορεί να χαθεί.
Αν δεν μπορούμε να την χάσουμε, τότε η ζωή γίνεται φυλακή. Δεν θα
μπορέσουμε να την απολαύσουμε.

Όπως λέει ο Όσσο :

«Άκου πάντα το κάλεσμα του αγνώστου και αφέσου, να βρίσκεσαι πάντα σε
κίνηση. Ποτέ μη προσπαθείς να αγκιστρωθείς από κάπου.
Το να αγκιστρωθείς σημαίνει να πεθάνεις. Είναι ένας πρώιμος θάνατος»

Λίγη αίσθηση του χιούμορ, λίγο γέλιο, αθωότητα παιδιού- και τι έχεις

να χάσεις ; Προς τι ο φόβος ;
Τίποτα δεν έχουμε. Έχουμε έρθει χωρίς τίποτα.  Χωρίς τίποτα θα φύγουμε.

Ο Σενέκας, διάσημος Ρωμαίος Στωικός φιλόσοφος είπε:

"Timendi causa est nescire", που σημαίνει : η αιτία του φόβου είναι η άγνοια.
Ποια άγνοια ; Η άγνοια, ότι τα πάντα συμβαίνουν στη ζωή μας για ένα
μοναδικό λόγο. Για να μας αφυπνίσουν από το λήθαργό μας.
Για να πονέσουμε, έτσι ώστε μέσα από τον πόνο, να αναγκαστούμε να
φέρουμε στην επιφάνεια την αληθινή μας φύση. Η άγνοια, ότι το δράμα της
ζωής μας είναι τέλειο.

Στο τέλος όλα θα είναι καλά.
Κι αν δεν είναι όλα καλά, θα σημαίνει πως το τέλος δεν ήρθε ακόμη....


      Βάλτε λίγη φιλοσοφία στη ζωή.   Βοηθάει κάπως !.....

The Buddha explains how to handle insult

The Buddha explained how to handle insult and maintain compassion.
One day Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him. "You have no right teaching others," he shouted. "You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake." Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man "Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?"

The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, "It would belong to me, because I bought the gift." The Buddha smiled and said, "That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself." "If you want to stop hurting yourself, you must get rid of your anger and become loving instead. When you hate others, you yourself become unhappy. But when you love others, everyone is happy."The young man listened closely to these wise words of the Buddha. "You are right, Enlightened One, He said. "Please teach me the path of love. I wish to become your follower." The Buddha answered kindly, "Of course. I teach anyone who truly wants to learn. Come with me."

CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS

CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS IN $1.00 OR EVEN LESS

Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this?

It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley or Cilantro ( Coriander Leaves ) and wash it clean
Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool.

Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before.

Parsley (Cilantro) is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!

Φωτογραφία για Το τέρας μέσα μας: Το πείραμα του Μίλγκραμ
Το πείραμα του Μίλγκραμ είναι ένα από τα πιο γνωστά αντιδεοντολογικά πειράματα της ψυχολογίας, ουσιαστικά μια «φάρσα» που ξεγύμνωσε την ανθρώπινη ψυχή.

Το 1961, ο είκοσι εφτάχρονος Στάνλει Μίλγκραμ, επίκουρος καθηγητής ψυχολογίας στο Γέιλ, αποφάσισε να μελετήσει την υπακοή στην εξουσία. Είχαν περάσει λίγα μόνο χρόνια από τα φρικτά εγκλήματα των Ναζί και γινόταν μια προσπάθεια κατανόησης της συμπεριφοράς των απλών στρατιωτών και αξιωματικών των SS, οι οποίοι είχαν εξολοθρεύσει εκατομμύρια αμάχων. Η ευρέως αποδεκτή εξήγηση –πριν το πείραμα του Μίλγκραμ- ήταν η αυταρχική τευτονική διαπαιδαγώγηση και η καταπιεσμένη –κυρίως σεξουαλικά- παιδική ηλικία των Γερμανών. Όμως ο Μίλγκραμ ήταν κοινωνικός ψυχολόγος και πίστευε ότι αυτού του είδους η υπακοή –που οδηγεί στο έγκλημα- δεν μπορεί να είναι αποτέλεσμα μόνο της προσωπικότητας, αλλά περισσότερο των πιεστικών συνθηκών. Και το απέδειξε κάνοντας τη «φάρσα» του.
Τα υποκείμενα του πειράματος ήταν εθελοντές, κυρίως φοιτητές, οι οποίοι καλούνταν έναντι αμοιβής να συμμετέχουν σε ένα ψυχολογικό πείραμα σχετικό με τη μνήμη.

Ο έκπληκτος «μαθητευόμενος» δενόταν χειροπόδαρα σε μια ηλεκτρική καρέκλα και του περνούσαν ηλεκτρόδια σε όλο το σώμα. Έπειτα του έδιναν να μάθει δέκα ζεύγη λέξεων.

Ο «δάσκαλος», από την άλλη, καθόταν μπροστά σε μια κονσόλα ηλεκτρικής γεννήτριας. Μπροστά του δέκα κουμπιά με ενδείξεις: «15 βολτ, 30 βολτ, 50 βολτ κλπ.» Το τελευταίο κουμπί έγραφε: «450 βολτ. Προσοχή! Κίνδυνος!»

Πίσω από το «δάσκαλο» στεκόταν ο πειραματιστής, ο υπεύθυνος του πειράματος. (Και περνάμε σε ενεστώτα για να γίνουμε μέτοχοι της στιγμής.)

«Θα λέτε την πρώτη λέξη από τα ζεύγη στο μαθητευόμενο. Αν κάνει λάθος θα σηκώσετε το πρώτο μοχλό και θα υποστεί ένα ηλεκτροσόκ 15 βολτ. Σε κάθε λάθος θα σηκώνετε τον αμέσως επόμενο μοχλό», λέει ο πειραματιστής και ο «δάσκαλος» αισθάνεται ήδη καλά που δεν του έτυχε στην κλήρωση ο άλλος ρόλος.

Το πείραμα ξεκινάει. Ο «δάσκαλος» λέει τις λέξεις από το μικρόφωνο. Ο «μαθητευόμενος», ήδη τρομαγμένος, απαντάει σωστά, αλλά όχι για πολύ. Μόλις κάνει το πρώτο λάθος ο «δάσκαλος» γυρνάει να κοιτάξει τον πειραματιστή. Εκείνος του λέει να προχωρήσει στο πρώτο ηλεκτροσόκ. Ο «δάσκαλος» υπακούει. 15 βολτ δεν είναι πολλά, αλλά ο «μαθητευόμενος» έχει αλλάξει ήδη γνώμη. Παρ’ όλα αυτά απαντάει σωστά σε άλλη μια ερώτηση, αλλά στο επόμενο λάθος δέχεται 30 βολτ. «Αφήστε να φύγω», λέει ο «μαθητευόμενος» που δεν μπορεί να λυθεί. «Δε θέλω να συμμετάσχω σε αυτό το πείραμα.» Ο «δάσκαλος» κοιτάει τον πειραματιστή. Εκείνος του κάνει νόημα να συνεχίσει. Το τέρας μέσα μας: Το πείραμα του Μίλγκραμ

Τα βολτ αυξάνονται και τώρα πια ο πόνος είναι εμφανής στο πρόσωπο του «μαθητευόμενου», που εκλιπαρεί να τον αφήσουν ελεύθερο. Στα 200 βολτ ταρακουνιέται ολόκληρος. Ο «δάσκαλος» πριν κάθε ηλεκτροσόκ γυρνάει να κοιτάξει τον πειραματιστή. Εκείνος, με σταθερή φωνή, του λέει ότι το πείραμα πρέπει να συνεχιστεί. Ο «δάσκαλος» συνεχίζει να βασανίζει έναν άγνωστο, έναν απλό φοιτητή που κλαίει, ζητάει τη βοήθεια του Θεού και παρακαλεί να τον λυπηθούν. Δεν μπορεί πια να απαντήσει στις ερωτήσεις, αλλά ο πειραματιστής λέει στο «δάσκαλο»:

«Τη σιωπή την εκλαμβάνουμε ως αποτυχημένη απάντηση και συνεχίζουμε με την τιμωρία.»

Στα 345 βολτ ο «μαθητευόμενος» τραντάζεται ολόκληρος, ουρλιάζει και χάνει τις αισθήσεις του.

Ο «δάσκαλος», ιδρωμένος και με τα χέρια του να τρέμουν, κοιτάει τον πειραματιστή.

«Μην ανησυχείτε», λέει εκείνος, «το πείραμα είναι απολύτως ελεγχόμενο… Συνεχίστε με τον τελευταίο μοχλό.»

«Μα είναι λιπόθυμος», λέει ο «δάσκαλος».

«Δεν έχει καμιά σημασία. Το πείραμα πρέπει να ολοκληρωθεί. Συνεχίστε με τον τελευταίο μοχλό.»

Πόσοι από τους εθελοντές έφτασαν ως τον τελευταίο μοχλό;

Πριν ξεκινήσει το πείραμα του ο Μίλγκραμ είχε κάνει μια «δημοσκόπηση» ανάμεσα στους ψυχιάτρους και στους ψυχολόγους, ρωτώντας ‘τους τι ποσοστό των εθελοντών θα έφτανε ως τον τελευταίο μοχλό.

Σχεδόν όλοι απάντησαν ότι κανείς δε θα έφτανε ως τον τελευταίο μοχλό, πέρα ίσως από κάποια άτομα με κρυπτοσαδιστικές τάσεις, καθαρά παθολογικές.

fetcher 31 Το τέρας μέσα μας: Το πείραμα του ΜίλγκραμΔυστυχώς έκαναν λάθος.

Μόλις το 5% των «δασκάλων» αρνήθηκαν εξ’ αρχής να συμμετάσχουν σε ένα τέτοιο πείραμα και αποχώρησαν –συνήθως βρίζοντας τον πειραματιστή. Το υπόλοιπο 95% προχώρησε πολύ το πείραμα, πάνω από τα 150 βολτ. Και το 65%… Έφτασε μέχρι τον τελευταίο μοχλό, τα πιθανότατα θανατηφόρα 450 βολτ!

Που έγκειται η φάρσα;

Ο «μαθητευόμενος» δεν ήταν φοιτητής, αλλά ηθοποιός, που είχε προσληφθεί από το Μίλγκραμ για αυτόν ακριβώς το «ρόλο». Δεν υπήρχε ηλεκτρισμός ούτε ηλεκτροσόκ. Ο ηθοποιός υποκρινόταν. Το μοναδικό πειραματόζωο ήταν ο «δάσκαλος».  Όμως τα αποτελέσματα ήταν αληθινά: Το μεγαλύτερο ποσοστό των ανθρώπων θα υπακούσει και θα βασανίσει –ίσως και θα σκοτώσει- έναν άγνωστο του, αρκεί να δέχεται εντολές από κάποιον με κύρος (στην προκειμένη περίπτωση επιστημονικό) και ταυτόχρονα να αισθάνεται ότι δεν τον βαρύνει η ευθύνη για ό,τι συμβεί –αφού εκείνος «απλά ακολουθούσε τις διαταγές».  Και φυσικά οι περισσότεροι από εμάς θα σκεφτούν όταν μάθουν για αυτό το πείραμα: «Εγώ αποκλείεται να έφτανα ως τον τελευταίο μοχλό.»

Όμως δείτε τι συμβαίνει στην κοινωνία μας, κάθε μέρα.

Ο υπάλληλος της ΔΕΗ που δέχεται να κόψει το ρεύμα από έναν άνεργο ή άπορο, ξέροντας ότι έτσι τον ταπεινώνει, τον υποβάλει σε ένα διαρκές βασανιστήριο και πιθανότατα θέτει σε κίνδυνο τη ζωή του, ανήκει στο 65% του τελευταίου μοχλού. Και δεν είναι καθόλου κρυπτοσαδιστής. Απλά ακολουθάει τις εντολές που του έδωσαν. Το τέρας μέσα μας: Το πείραμα του Μίλγκραμ

Ο υπάλληλος του σούπερ-μάρκετ που σου δίνει το χαλασμένο ψάρι και σε διαβεβαιώνει ότι είναι φρέσκο (μιλώ εξ’ ιδίας πείρας, ως αγοραστής) δε σε μισεί, παρότι γνωρίζει ότι μπορεί να πάθεις και δηλητηρίαση. Απλώς ακολουθάει εντολές.  Ο αστυνομικός ο οποίος ραντίζει με χημικά τους διαδηλωτές δεν είναι κρυπτοσαδιστής –αν και πολλοί θα διαφωνήσουν στο συγκεκριμένο παράδειγμα. Απλώς κάνει τη δουλειά του. Ο υπάλληλος της εφορίας ή της τράπεζας που υπογράφει την κατάσχεση κάποιου σπιτιού για 1.000 ευρώ χρέος, θα έφτανε ως τον τελευταίο μοχλό στο πείραμα. Γιατί υπακούει.

Ο πολιτικός που υπογράφει το μνημόνιο το οποίο οδηγεί ένα ολόκληρο έθνος στην εξαθλίωση του νεοφιλελευθερισμού θα έφτανε μέχρι τον τελευταίο μοχλό. Και αυτός υπακούει, σε εντολές πολύ πιο ισχυρές από εκείνες του πειραματιστή με την άσπρη φόρμα.  Αν όμως δούμε το πείραμα του Μίλγκραμ από την ανθρωπιστική-ηθική του πλευρά (από την πλευρά του 5% που αρνήθηκε να υπακούσει) θα καταλάβουμε ότι κανένας δεν είναι άμοιρος ευθυνών. Αν σε διατάζουν να κάνεις κάτι που προκαλεί κακό στον άλλον, στο συμπολίτη σου, σε έναν μετανάστη, σε έναν άνθρωπο (ή σε ένα ζώο, αλλά αυτό περιπλέκει πολύ τα πράγματα, εφόσον συνεχίζουμε να τρώμε κρέας), πρέπει να αρνηθείς να υπακούσεις. Ακόμα κι αν χάσεις το μπόνους παραγωγικότητας, την προαγωγή, την επανεκλογή, τη δουλειά σου.

Το τέρας μέσα μας: Το πείραμα του ΜίλγκραμΜόνο όταν θα είμαστε έτοιμοι να αρνηθούμε να υπακούσουμε στις «μικρές» και καθημερινές εντολές βίας –με τις οποίες οι περισσότεροι ασυνείδητα συμμορφωνόμαστε, μόνο όταν θα είμαστε έτοιμοι να προβούμε σε μια γενικευμένη και μέχρι τέλους πολιτική, κοινωνική, καταναλωτική ανυπακοή, μόνο όταν μάθουμε να συμπεριφερόμαστε ως αυτεξούσιοι άνθρωποι και όχι ως ανεύθυνοι υπάλληλοι, μόνο τότε θα μπορέσουμε να γκρεμίσουμε τη λαίλαπα του νεοφιλελευθερισμού που μας θέλει υπάνθρωπους, υπάκουους και υπόδουλους.

Και μια τελευταία παρατήρηση:

Τα υποκείμενα του πειράματος του Μίλγκραμ, οι εθελοντές φοιτητές, μάθαιναν από εκείνον ποιος ήταν ο στόχος του πειράματος. Μάθαιναν ότι ο «μαθητευόμενος» ήταν ηθοποιός και ότι δεν είχε ποτέ υποστεί ηλεκτροσόκ. Ο Μίλγκραμ το έκανε αυτό για να τους ανακουφίσει, αλλά πέτυχε το ακριβώς αντίθετο. Αυτοί οι άνθρωποι, ειδικά το 65% που είχε φτάσει ως τον τελευταίο μοχλό, πέρασαν την υπόλοιπη ζωή τους κυνηγημένοι από τις Ερινύες της πράξης τους. Γιατί συνειδητοποίησαν ότι δεν ήταν τόσο αθώοι και τόσο «καλοί» όσο ήθελαν να πιστεύουν για τον εαυτό τους.

(Περισσότερα για το πείραμα του Μίλγκραμ μπορείτε να διαβάσετε στο υπέροχο βιβλίο της Lauren Slater: «Το κουτί της ψυχής», από τις εκδόσεις Οξύ, μετάφραση Δέσποινα Αλεξανδρή, 2009)

Why can't I own a Canadian?


Why can't I own a Canadian?

In her Radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.

The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, written by a US man, and posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a

great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can.
When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind
them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other
elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and
female, provided they are from neighboring nations. A friend of mine
claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you
 clarify?
Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in
Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair
 price
for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her

period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell?
I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a
pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors.
They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus
35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated
to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an
abomination
- Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than
homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there
'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I
have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading
glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some

wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair
around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.
19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes
me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two
different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments

made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also
tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all
the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them?  Lev.24:10-16.
Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do
with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
           
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help.  Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
 Your adoring fan.

James M. Kauffman, Ed.D. Professor Emeritus,
Dept. Of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education
University of Virginia

P.S.  It would be a damn shame if we couldn't own a Canadian.

Socrates

Socrates

In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.  
One day an acquaintance ran up to him excitedly and said "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about Diogenes?"
 "Wait a moment," Socrates replied, "before you tell me, I'd like you to pass a little test.  It's called the Triple Filter Test."
 "Triple filter?" asked the acquaintance.
 "That's right," Socrates continued, "before you talk to me about Diogenes, let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say.  The first filter is the Truth.  Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"
 "No," the man said, "actually, I just heard about it."
 "Alright," said Socrates, "so you don't really know if it's true or not.  Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness.  Is what you are about to tell me about Diogenes something good?"
 "No, on the contrary..."
 "So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something about Diogenes that may be bad even though you're not certain it is true?"
 The man shrugged a little embarrassed.  Socrates continued, "You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter, the filter of Usefulness.  Is what you want to tell me about Diogenes going to be useful to me?"
 "No, not really."
 "Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me or anyone at all?"
 The man was bewildered and ashamed.  This is an example of why Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem.
 It also explains why Socrates never found out that Diogenes was banging his wife!!

DON'T WASTE THAT LEMON PEEL

DON'T WASTE THAT LEMON PEEL

Shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.
Sprinkle it into your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice & fish dishes, even your
whiskey and wine. Lemon gives these foods an unexpectedly wonderful taste; something you may not have tasted before.
Now that you've learned the lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.
What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Health -
Lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself and that's what we've been wasting. But you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier. Lemon peels are health body cleansing rejuvenators that eradicate toxic elements in the body.

Lemon is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. Lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. It's pleasant tasting and does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.
It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumours.
The lemon plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some believe it is useful against all variants of cancer. 

It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, regulates high blood pressure and an antidepressant, that combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating. It comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world which says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the tests of the lemon extracts revealed that: 
It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas. 
The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug most often normally used in chemotherapy throughout the world to slow the growth of cancer cells.
Even more astonishing: this therapy that uses only lemon extract destroys malignant cancer cells with no effect on healthy cells.

"Our illnesses are not necessarily programmed in our genes, but they are responses to the way we perceive our environment"

Μήπως η στάση που κοιμάστε σας αρρωσταίνει; Τα θετικά και τα αρνητικά των πιο κοινών στάσεων για την υγεία


Περνάμε σχεδόν το ένα τρίτο της ζωής μας με το να κοιμόμαστε, αλλά λίγοι από εμάς γνωρίζουμε ότι εκτός από την ποσότητα του ύπνου που λαμβάνουμε σημαντικό ρόλο για την υγεία μας παίζει και η ποιότητά του - και συγκεκριμένα η στάση ύπνου στην οποία δείχνουμε προτίμηση. Με περίπου το 95% των ανθρώπων να κοιμούνται στην ίδια θέση κάθε βράδυ, ειδικοί μας αποκαλύπτουν τα θετικά και τα αρνητικά των πιο κοινών στάσεων για την υγεία. Θέση ανάνηψης (στο πλάι, από την δεξιά πλευρά)Καλή για: Παλινδρόμηση οξέωνΚακή για: Ρυτίδες Αυτή η στάση, γνωστή ως θέση ανάνηψης επειδή μοιάζει πολύ με εκείνη που χρησιμοποιείται σε έκτακτα περιστατικά, μειώνει τα συμπτώματα της παλινδρόμησης οξέων και τη δυσπεψία. Ωστόσο, όσοι κοιμούνται στο πλάι κινδυνεύουν να αποκτήσουν πιο βαθιές ρυτίδες εξαιτίας της τριβής με το μαξιλάρι. Το πτώμα (ανάσκελα)Καλή για: ΑρθρίτιδαΚακή για: Άσθμα, ροχαλητό, υπνική άπνοια, καρδιά Ο ύπνος σε αυτή τη θέση συνιστά την κατάλληλη επιλογή για όσους υποφέρουν από αρθρίτιδα και πόνους στις αρθρώσεις, καθώς το βάρος του σώματος κατανέμεται ισομερώς. Ωστόσο, σε αυτή τη στάση επιδεινώνεται το ροχαλητό - ιδίως στους παχύσαρκους άνδρες - και η υπνική άπνοια. Μπορεί ακόμη να προκαλέσει προβλήματα στο αναπνευστικό και κυκλοφορικό σύστημα. Εμβρυϊκή στάσηΚαλή για: ΟσφυαλγίαΚακή για: Πόνο στον αυχένα, πονοκεφάλους Πρόκειται για μία από τις πλέον κοινές στάσεις στον ύπνο και συνίσταται για όσους υποφέρουν από προβλήματα στη μέση. Αυτό συμβαίνει διότι καθώς το σώμα κουλουριάζεται προς τα εμπρός «ανοίγει» την πλάτη, μειώνοντας την πίεση στον μεσοσπονδύλιο δίσκο. Παράλληλα όμως, καθώς ο αυχένας δεν βρίσκεται σε ευθυγράμμιση με το υπόλοιπο σώμα, μπορεί να προκληθούν πόνοι τόσο στον αυχένα όσο και στο κεφάλι. Στάση κουτάλιΚαλή για: ΣτρεςΚακή για: Πόνους στις αρθρώσεις και στους μύες Τα νέα για όσους κοιμούνται με τον σύντροφό τους είναι καλά: ακόμη και την ώρα του ύπνου, η ανθρώπινη επαφή μέσω της αγκαλιάς μειώνει σημαντικά τα επίπεδα του στρες. Όσοι υποφέρουν ωστόσο από πόνους στους μύες ή στις αρθρώσεις καλύτερα να το ξανασκεφτούν. Το να κοιμάται κανείς στο πλάι, με τον σύντροφό του κοντά δεν είναι και η πιο βολική στάση για την πλάτη, τους ώμους και τον αυχένα και μπορεί να ενισχύσει τους πόνους που τυχόν υπάρχουν σε αυτά τα σημεία. Στάση ηλιοθεραπείας (Μπρούμυτα)Καλή για: ΡοχαλητόΚακή για: Τρίξιμο δοντιών, πόνο και μούδιασμα χεριών Ο ύπνος σε αυτή τη στάση αντιμετωπίζει το πρόβλημα του ροχαλητού, καθώς οι μύες του λαιμού δεν υποχωρούν προς τα κάτω λόγω της βαρύτητας. Αν όμως έχετε την κακή συνήθεια να τρίζετε τα δόντια σας στον ύπνο, τότε η πίεση που ασκείται στην κάτω σιαγόνα θα κάνει το πρόβλημα ακόμη πιο έντονο. Επιπροσθέτως, όσοι κοιμούνται μπρούμυτα μπορεί να παρουσιάσουν προβλήματα στα νεύρα του άνω κορμού.

Top 15 Cleansing Foods


Top 15 Cleansing Foods

Top 15 Cleansing Foods
When it comes to cleansing your body of harmful toxins, food really is the best medicine. You’ll be amazed to learn that many of your favorite foods also cleanse the body’s detoxification organs like the liver, intestines, kidneys, and skin, preventing harmful toxic buildup. Help ward off the harmful effects of pollution, food additives, second-hand smoke, and other toxins with delicious fruits, vegetables, nuts, oils, and beans.

Apples. Because apples are high in pectin, a type of fiber that binds to cholesterol and heavy metals in the body, they help eliminate toxic build up and to cleanse the intestines.
Avocados. We rarely think of avocados as a cleansing food but these nutritional powerhouses lower cholesterol and dilate blood vessels while blocking artery-destroying toxicity. Avocados contain a nutrient called glutathione, which blocks at least thirty different carcinogens while helping the liver detoxify synthetic chemicals.
Beets. Time to whip up some delicious borscht soup since its main ingredient, beets, contain a unique mixture of natural plant compounds that make them superb blood purifiers and liver cleansers.
Blueberries. Truly one of the most powerful healing foods, blueberries contain natural aspirin that helps lessen the tissue-damaging effects of chronic inflammation, while lessening pain. Blueberries also act as antibiotics by blocking bacteria in the urinary tract, thereby helping to prevent infections. They also have antiviral properties and help to block toxins from crossing the blood-brain barrier to gain access to the delicate brain.

Cabbage. Cabbage contains numerous anticancer and antioxidant compounds and helps the liver break down excess hormones. Cabbage also cleanses the digestive tract and neutralizes some of the damaging compounds found in cigarette smoke (and second-hand smoke). It also strengthens the liver’s ability to detoxify.
Celery and Celery Seeds. Celery and celery seeds are excellent blood cleansers and contain many different anti-cancer compounds that help detoxify cancer cells from the body. Celery seeds contain over twenty anti-inflammatory substances. It is particularly good for detoxifying substances found in cigarette smoke.
Cranberries. Cleanse your body from harmful bacteria and viruses that may be lingering in your urinary tract with cranberries since they contain antibiotic and antiviral substances.
Flax seeds and Flax seed Oil. Loaded with essential fatty acids, particularly the Omega-3s, flax seeds and flax seed oil are essential for many cleansing functions throughout the body.
Garlic. Eat garlic to cleanse harmful bacteria, intestinal parasites and viruses from your body, especially from the blood and intestines. It also helps cleanse build-up from the arteries and has anti-cancer and antioxidant properties that help detoxify the body of harmful substances. Additionally, garlic assists with cleansing the respiratory tract by expelling mucous build-up in the lungs and sinuses. For the health benefits, choose only fresh garlic, not garlic powder, which has virtually none of the above properties.
Grapefruit. Add a ruby red grapefruit to your breakfast to benefit from pectin fiber that binds to cholesterol, thereby cleansing the blood. Pectin also binds to heavy metals and helps escort them out of the body. It also has antiviral compounds that cleanse harmful viruses out of the body. Grapefruit is an excellent intestinal and liver detoxifier.

Kale. Steam some kale to benefit from its powerful anti-cancer and antioxidant compounds that help cleanse the body of harmful substances. It is also high in fiber, which helps cleanse the intestinal tract. Like cabbage, kale helps neutralize compounds found in cigarette smoke and strengthens liver cleansing.
Legumes. Add a handful of cooked beans to your next meal since they loaded with fiber that helps lower cholesterol, cleanses the intestines, and regulates blood sugar levels. Legumes also help protect the body against cancer.
Lemons. Excellent liver detoxifiers, lemons contain high amounts of vitamin C, a vitamin needed by the body to make an important substance called glutathione. Glutathione helps the liver detoxify harmful chemicals. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice (not the bottled variety) to pure water to support your cleansing efforts on a daily basis.
Seaweed. Seaweed could be the most underrated vegetable in the western world. Studies at McGill University in Montreal showed that seaweeds bind to radioactive waste in the body. Seaweed also binds to heavy metals to help eliminate them from the body. In addition, they are powerhouses of minerals and trace minerals.
Watercress. If you haven’t tried watercress add this delicious green to your next sandwich since it increases detoxification enzymes and acts on cancer cells in the body. In a study at the Norwich Food Research Centre in the United Kingdom, smokers who were given 170 grams of watercress per day eliminated higher than average amounts of carcinogens in their urine, thereby eliminating them from their body.
Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables assists with detoxifying harmful substances from your body. Who knew cleansing could taste so good?

A sweet lesson on patience.

A sweet lesson on patience.

A NYC Taxi driver wrote:

I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but instead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.

After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.

By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.

'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.

She kept thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I told her.. 'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.'

'Oh, you're such a good boy, she said. When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, 'Could you drive
through downtown?'

'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly..

'Oh, I don't mind,' she said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a hospice.

I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening. 'I don't have any family left,' she continued in a soft voice..'The doctor says I don't have very long.' I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.

'What route would you like me to take?' I asked.

For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.

We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

Sometimes she'd ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, 'I'm tired.Let's go now'.
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.

I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

'How much do I owe you?' She asked, reaching into her purse.

'Nothing,' I said

'You have to make a living,' she answered.

'There are other passengers,' I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug.She held onto me tightly.

'You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,' she said. 'Thank you.'

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light.. Behind me, a door shut.It was the sound of the closing of a life..

I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that day,I could hardly talk.What if that woman had gotten an angry driver,or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything more important in my life.

We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.

But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

Anger

For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of Happiness.

Donald Trump Warns Autism Caused by Vaccines

CDC Caught Deliberately Falsifying Vaccine-Autism Research
&
 Donald Trump Warns Autism Caused by Vaccines
 
Dear Friends,

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have for many years denied a possible link between mercury in vaccines and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, in October 2011, the CDC has been caught deliberately fudging data to try to cover up evidence linking mercury in vaccines with ASD. [1]

To conceal any incriminating vaccine data, the CDC had handed its massive database of vaccine records over to a private company, effectively pronouncing it off-limits to researchers and preventing dissemination of the data through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

However, this didn’t stop the Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs (CoMeD). During an enquiry through FOIA it was discovered, as suspected, that the same original Danish study which the CDC referred to as “definitive evidence” that Thimerosal does not increase a child’s chances of developing ASD, actually revealed the exact opposite to be true. The Danish research is irrefutably clear about the findings: Thimerosal in vaccines increases a person’s chances of developing autism and other neurological diseases.

In the United States, at least one in every 100 vaccinated children is afflicted with ASD, while only 1 in every 2,000 non-vaccinated children has the disease. In European countries like Iceland, where children receive just one-third the number of vaccines shots, only 1 in 30,000 children has ASD. In the US, now 1 in every 88 children has ASD, according to a statement made by the CDC in March 2012, citing statistics from the year 2008. In those US states where children receive the most vaccines, or where relatively more children become vaccinated, as for example in Utah and New Jersey, as many as 1 in 47 children develop ASD. By comparison, in the mostly rural state of Iowa where fewer children become vaccinated, 1 in 718 children have autism. [2]

If the overall trend increase has been consistent since 2008, which appears to be the case, then 1 in every 63 children in the US now has ASD (year 2012). One doesn’t need to be a scientist to make sense of this man-made tragedy.

The FDA is not an innocent bystander in this conspiracy against the health of the American people. Both the CDC and FDA have tried to conceal from concerned parents that the vaccines still contain mercury. In a recent court hearing the FDA unintentionally admitted that flu vaccines now routinely given to babies as young as six months of age contain it, according to Courthouse News Service on Friday, March 23, 2012. [3]

“The Food and Drug Administration is not liable for approving a mercury-based vaccine preservative because more expensive, mercury-free vaccines are available upon request,” a federal judge ruled. “Thimerosal-preserved flu vaccines are necessary to ensure sufficient supply at a reasonable price,” according to the judgment.

The problem with this questionable ‘solution’ to allegedly avoid mercury poisoning of American babies is that most doctors neither inform parents about what flu vaccines really contain, nor recommend the other, less toxic options. Most parents still trust their child’s pediatrician and do what they are told. And why pay for an expensive vaccine, when there is a cheaper one available, especially when the doctor insists that the vaccine (containing mercury) is completely safe?  The FDA has no intention of hanging a poster on the wall of a pediatrician’s office that could says something like this: “Attention parents: beware that the flu shot your child may be receiving today contains brain-damaging mercury!”

"While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternativeor no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines," writes the FDA on its Thimerosal in Vaccines web page (www.fda.gov).

Thimerosal is a mercury-based compound that is FDA-approved as a vaccine preservative, which makes it perfectly legal for doctors to inject this powerful neurotoxin into babies. Besides, doctors and pharmaceutical companies are no longer liable for causing vaccine injuries, including death.

One average flu vaccine contains 25 micrograms of mercury and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stipulates a safety limit of 5 micrograms. Case in point, children who are vaccinated against the flu receive over 500 percent more mercury in one day than is considered safe by the very governmental agency responsible for keeping us safe from environmental toxins.

The FDA also avoids informing the public that the aluminum phosphate added to these vaccines greatly increases toxicity of mercury, thereby turning the minimum mercury tolerance level into a complete joke—a joke that can cause severe brain damage to an unsuspecting child, and untold suffering and financial hardship to his parents. After millions of parents found that their children became autistic after receiving vaccine shots, there was a massive increase in class action lawsuits against the vaccine-producing pharmaceutical companies, Wyeth, GlaxoSmithKline Plc, Merck & Co. and Sanofi-Aventis SA. A. As a result, the vaccine makers threatened the Obama Administration that they would stop producing vaccines altogether unless they received complete immunity from prosecution for vaccine injuries.

In 2010 the Supreme Court of Justice passed a new law that granted these drug giants the requested immunity. Since then, they have free reign in packing any kind of toxic compounds into their vaccine products, and nobody can stop them. By adding toxic, carcinogenic ingredients to their vaccines, they generate an ever-increasing number of new patients that require medical treatments which mostly consist of medical drugs that they also produce.

The cover-ups by the CDC and FDA have let those responsible for the huge autism epidemic, which began when mercury and adjuvants were first added to vaccines, off the hook. Without this elaborate conspiracy against the people, libel lawsuits resulting from permanent vaccine injuries in children would have bankrupted numerous governments, including the United States and Great Britain, and almost the entire pharmaceutical industry.

Donald Trump Speak Out
Thankfully, some very influential spokespeople and celebrities are now coming to the aid of the ostracized vaccine safety awareness movement, including business mogul Donald Trump. During an interview with Fox News on April 2, 2012, the anniversary of the fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day, Trump unexpectedly raised serious concern about vaccinations. He told viewers he “strongly believes that Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are linked to exposure to vaccines.” [4]

Trump has been actively engaged in helping children with autism for many years. During the interview, the tycoon explained that a series of casual observations had led him to the conclusion that “monster” vaccinations cause autism.

Trump’s remarks must have been a bombshell for the most aggressive vaccine-pushers, including doctors, pharmaceutical companies, the government’s health agencies and, of course, the most powerful vaccine advocate, Bill Gates. They all deny a vaccine-autism link exists by referring to the fraudulently altered research data the CDC released in 2008. They have exerted monumental efforts in trying to suppress and delegitimize the work that has been done on vaccine-caused autism by researchers at several universities and, most notably, by Dr Andrew Wakefield. Fortunately, through a ruling by Britain’s High Court, Dr Wakefield’s key research colleague, Professor John Walker-Smith, has recently been vindicated of having falsified research proving the vaccine-autism link. [5] In other words, the work by these two scientists is now considered genuine and valid.

While Trump acknowledged that speaking out against vaccines and the vaccine schedule is controversial, he said "...I couldn't care less. I've seen people where they have a perfectly healthy child, and they go for the vaccinations and a month later the child is no longer healthy."

“I’ve gotten to be pretty familiar with the subject,” Trump went on to say. “You know, I have a theory — and it’s a theory that some people believe in — and that’s the vaccinations. We never had anything like this. This is now an epidemic. It’s way, way up over the past 10 years. It’s way up over the past two years. And, you know, when you take a little baby that weighs like 12 pounds into a doctor’s office and they pump them with many, many simultaneous vaccinations — I’m all for vaccinations, but I think when you add all of these vaccinations together and then two months later the baby is so different then lots of different things have happened. I really — I’ve known cases.”

Usually, the media which are sponsored, in large part, through advertisements paid for by pharmaceutical companies, have a financial interest in keeping their sponsors happy. I personally would like to thank Donald Trump for bringing this important issue, which concerns so many millions of individuals and their families, back into the minds of the people. He has clearly shown that he is not afraid of surprising one of the world’s leading news channels by issuing such as stern warning.

Wishing you the best of health,
