Rose Goes to Yale
Recently, about 100 children became infected with measles in an outbreak, and everyone has been quick to blame the parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. However, I think that the vaccine skeptics’ arguments make perfect sense. I just don’t think that we should be limiting these arguments only to vaccines, and if we’re really serious about keeping our children safe, we should treat even the seemingly innocent things like food with the same amount of healthy skepticism. Here are 10 reasons why you as a parent should never give your children any food.
1) Food has some scary side effects, and hundreds of people die of food poisoning every year.
2) There is an established link between food and autism, because 99.95%…

Remember the scene in “The Matrix” where Neo has the choice of taking the red pill to open his eyes to the reality of what actually is, or taking the blue pill and remaining comfortable, but blind to the reality of things?
A similar choice occurs within The Processed Food Matrix we live in today.
We’re like “Neo” except instead of a one time decision, every eating decision of choosing the blue pill of processed food, or the red pill that is cleaner more whole foods eventually accumulates into getting out, or staying in, The Processed Food Matrix.
Take breakfast as an example of one of these eating choices. “Morpheus” extends two hands:
In one hand is plain oats. In the other “Cap’n crunch.”
It’s like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” of the eating variety that will influence later eating decisions for that day, week, month, etc. If the oats…

Company Recalls More Than 200 Million Eggs Due to Salmonella Scare
Nearly 207 million eggs produced at a farm in Hyde County, N.C., are being voluntarily recalled because of concerns of contamination with the salmonella bacteria, the egg company announced.
In a statement, Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind. said that 22 illnesses but no deaths have so far been linked to the tainted eggs.
The eggs “have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” the company said Friday.
The recall arose after illnesses were reported in East Coast states. The outbreak “led to extensive interviews and eventually a thorough FDA (Food and Drug Administration) inspection of the Hyde County farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day. The facility includes 3 million laying hens with…

Many people love their morning cup of joe.
Not only is this caffeine-fueled beverage a great pick-me-up, it’s also loaded with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients (1).
What’s more, some people find it can jump-start the other end of their body.
In fact, one study found that 29% of participants needed to use the bathroom within twenty minutes of drinking a cup of coffee (2).
This article helps explain why coffee can make you poop.
It was initially believed that the caffeine in coffee makes you poop.
However, studies show that decaf can also do the trick. This means there must be other factors at work (6).
Chlorogenic acids and N-alkanoyl-5-hydroxytryptamides are both compounds of interest.

The Secret Life Of Water
Does cinema imitate life, or does life imitate cinema?
Throwing the truth out, can you see it?
Society tries to hide the darkness of humanity, by NOT reporting, and that’s why stories like this are important.
Six-year-old Otilia cried herself to sleep every night for the past two weeks, ever since mother sold her to the man. The man took her and four other children in a truck, hiding them in big boxes. Now she was at her new home, the mansion of a rich man in Gaborone.
The maid gave her a bath and new clothes so she could meet him. He was sitting behind a desk in a big library when the maid took her in. Otilia stood in front of the desk. The maid left and closed the door.
He was a big man, and his voice was booming. “You look like you’ll make a fine domestic.”
Otilia was supposed to call him “Mr. Mlalazi,” but she was too scared to talk as he stood and walked toward her.
“First, your initiation, though.” He…

In the past we have had several different diseases that had the potential of becoming our next world-wide pandemic….Ebola and the Bird Flu are first to come to mind.
There is a theory that our constant trips to the doctor for every little sniffle is causing problems that could be disastrous……
“Nightmare bacteria” with unusual resistance to antibiotics of last resort were found more than 200 times in the US last year in a first-of-a-kind hunt to see how much of a threat these rare cases have become. That’s more than health officials expected to find, and the true number is likely higher as the effort involved only certain labs in each state, per the AP. The problem mostly strikes people in hospitals and nursing homes who need IVs and other contamination-prone…

Hilary Butler – Saturday, June 05, 2010
What other explanation is there for a comment in Truth About Gardasil’s latest press release which stated: A medical source close to TAG (Truth about Gardasil) has stated: “I find it disturbing that Merck’s agreement with the FDA is based on an agreement that no adverse events will be labeled as such unless there is a TWO fold increase seen of diseases that occur at least as frequently as 1/10,000. This takes away…

We decorate and gild our cage
Make it nice and decorate
The confines of our own entrapment
The bars of our own restraint
And we focus so much on this
That life passes us by
And we see nothing but this
And do not see we live a lie
Imprisoned within our own minds
Unable to escape
Because we lock our own cage
Then we throw away the key
And become victims of our own misery
Do we not see
Are we asleep?
It’s a nightmare not a dream.
The harmful effects of being overweight have been underestimated, according to a new study that analysed body mass index (BMI), health and mortality data in around 60,000 parents and their children, to establish how obesity actually influences risk of death.
Previous studies have suggested that the optimum BMI, at which the risk of death is minimised, appears to be above the range normally recommended by doctors, leading to claims it is good for health to be mildly overweight. However, scientists suspect these studies do not reflect the true effect of BMI on health, because early stages of illness, health-damaging behaviours, such as cigarette smoking, and other factors can lead to both lower BMI and increased risk of death. This makes it difficult to estimate how BMI actually influences risk of death (the causal effect), as opposed to the observed association between BMI and risk of death. This aim of this…

Whether a Doctor, a Radio Personality, a Sailorman, a Robot, a Penguin, an Extra-Terrestrial, a Cross-Dresser, a Boy who was never supposed to grow up, or a Genie…..the masks we hide behind are only what we present to the world.
But often times, we are trying so hard, with those masks, to live up to the expectations of others, that we create a jail cell in our own minds. And that is a place that we cannot hide from. There are no masks that can shield us from what we are imprisoned with inside our own heads.
You can’t escape your thoughts. You can train them, you can push them away, you can wallow in them, you can act on them…there are many ways of dealing with your thoughts, but you can never truly escape them, except for those who escape in the way that the person depicted in the…

The American version never caught on so, here you go, in German…
is the contradiction between the lack of evidence and high probability estimates for the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations.
Huh? Why is the solar system, galaxy, universe so large if we (humans) are the only ones?
How about this:
*** We have been in contact but it is not on a global scale.
***We haven’t broken the interstellar travel record (FTLT) yet – like in ST First Contact
There could be AND are a number of reasons why they haven’t just shown up on your doorstep.
***Perhaps their Prime Directive prevents them?
You Decide: “Soaked in Bleach” expounds on the events leading up to Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994
By Bryan Thomas
Source: Night Flight
In 2015, Benjamin Statler produced, wrote and directed Soaked in Bleach, a docu-drama that expounds on the events leading up to the death of Nirvana‘s Kurt Cobain as seen through the eyes of a private investigator, Tom Grant.
The former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. detective turned private investigator — who had an exemplary resume and a spotless reputation — had initially been hired by Courtney Love on Easter Sunday 1994 to track down Cobain, who had gone missing after checking himself out of a drug rehab facility.
Soaked in Bleach focuses mainly on Grant’s investigation between April 1st and April 8th, with a particular focus on what may have happened on April 5, 1994.
At the time, the official Seattle Police Department incident report stated that…
