The Media is a very powerful tool to spread propaganda. Propaganda is information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view. To people who are already in charge – it’s the best way to prevent a revolt – which is an attempt to put an end to the authority of a person or body by rebelling.
As you’re probably very aware – sometimes revolution is necessary. However, with proper propaganda – there can likely be no revolution. Many people in this country feel that America is changing for the worse. Not all the change is bad. Some of the change is very good. But some of the change is very bad. And it’s the bad change that many people are actively being pacified into accepting – instead of speaking out about – or revolting…
So I made my own avocado mayonnaise. But don’t be too proud of me – I made it “my way”. My way actually includes a little real mayonnaise. My main objective wasn’t to have the healthiest “stuff” on Earth. It was to make something I really like (and eat often) a little less unhealthy. Here’s the deal…
Just about every night I have a grilled chicken wrap using ridiculously psychotically awesome “Joseph’s Super Soft Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Lavash Bread”. It’s so stupidly awesome that I’m not even going to talk about it anymore – other than the fact that if you’re trying to be healthy and you want a really good “wrap” – this is it…
What is it with human beings, automobiles and turn signals? You have most people who are too inconsiderate to flick a switch. These people have you waiting at a stop sign while you assume they’re going straight but then turn down the street you’re sitting on leaving you to wait for the new oncoming traffic that actually IS going straight passed you.
Then you have the people who turn on their signal as they’re turning. I can only imagine this is done to avoid getting a ticket because they “technically” used their signal. But they might as well turn on their signal “after” they turned to let us know that what we saw, their turn, actually really did happen. Just to make sure we know we’re not just seeing things.
Let’s get straight to the point and bypass all the small talk since you don’t like to read. I’ve had a Hyundai Genesis for a few months now and I can give a pretty good report on how things compare to other luxury sedans I’ve owned in the past (and currently still do). I’ve never driven a Genesis Coupe so this will be all about the “luxury” Genesis – the sedan.
The car feels very solid on the road and it’s pretty much as quiet as anyone but the pickiest person will want or need. If you’re one of those people who’s more worried about what your smartphone’s decibel meter says over your own ears – you’ll probably find something to complain about here. You don’t count.
Years ago simply driving a Cadillac, any Cadillac, meant something. “You made it”. “You’ve arrived”. Success… The same can be said for many luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, Lexus, etcetera. But the company brand is losing it’s value – and I don’t think that’s such a big deal.
Let’s take Cadillac for example. It’s not exactly “prestigious” to be driving a Cadillac ATS. But your Cadillac ATS-V might get a spot up front in the valet area. How about Mercedes-Benz? People (mainly on the internet) laugh at vehicles like the CLA and GLA. But change the conversation to that of an S65 AMG or SL65 AMG and things change drastically. I bet 99% of the world’s population would be happy to drive an SL65 AMG – but many could “take or leave” a CLA or GLA (though I bet most would “take”).
I have a lot of phones. To name a few, I’ve got ALL the iPhones except the “six”. After I met Android – I gave up on it… So besides iPhones – I have a Google LG Nexus 4, a Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4 – I HAD an S6 but returned it because it kept crashing on me (especially the web browser), an HTC One M7, a MotoX 2013 and 2014, a OnePlus One — and I can’t remember the other ones at this very moment. But I have a lot of phones. The TWO that I KEEP switching back and forth from are the MotoX 2014 and OnePlus One.
Why? The MotoX is the most convenience phone to me. I shake it and take a picture – THAT quickly. Other phones have slightly better cameras but if I’m not quick enough to get the shot – that doesn’t matter much. Another nice feature is how it can tell when you’re driving and read out text messages sent to you and allow you to respond with only your voice – which is a great feature. There are a few other unique MotoX features but those two are my favorite. Besides that – the battery life is “good” and everything works. I’m a power-user so having a device that doesn’t start acting funny when I add all the apps I want onto it – is crucial.
Do the world a favor and share this. This is important information for everyone as we’re either going to deal with breast cancer or prostate cancer ourselves some day – or one of our loved ones will.
Researchers at Yale University found that men with the highest intake of vegetables of the cruciferous variety reduced their risk of spreading and aggressive prostate cancer by 50 percent. These men had two servings or more of cruciferous vegetables each week, generally cauliflower and broccoli. While eating, an enzymatic reaction produces nutrients named diindolylmethane (DIM) and Indole-3-carbinol (I3C). Unfortunately, boiling, steaming, or microwaving can greatly reduce effectiveness – up to 58 percent. So eating cruciferous vegetables raw or lightly sautéing them will help maximize the amount of DIM and I3C that can be formed.
Luckily, dietary supplements of DIM and I3C can provide high levels of these potent nutrients in a single capsule containing far more DIM and I3C than a serving of these cruciferous vegetables.
I know, I’m on this health kick lately. Both my in-laws have type two Diabetes and I promised them 757 1/2 hours of research to find them an alternative to their prescription medications – one which is Metformin. I’m not sure which the other is yet. I need to speak more with them.
In any event… Meet Berberine. Berberine has been shown to lower blood sugar, cause weight loss and improve cardiovascular health, amongst other positive effects. It’s one of the few supplements shown to be as effective as a pharmaceutical drug.
Berberine decreases Insulin resistance making it more affective as a blood sugar lowering hormone. It increases glycolysis which helps the body break down sugars inside cells. And it decreases sugar production in the liver.
Okay, I shouldn’t lie. My wife really stumbled upon this – and swore by it – but now I’m finally a true believer.
First – a little history that’ll explain why I’m so psyched about this discovery… When I was growing up – I was always sick. No, not literally “always” – but you know what I mean. I seem to have had a weak immune system for as long as I can remember. Sore throats were my biggest enemy – and I got ’em a lot…
When I moved to Florida I started working from my home office – and I pretty much never got sick anymore. Not until I really started going out a lot again a couple of years ago. So now I’m back to my old sick three or four times per year thing.
My wife rarely ever got sick but when she did she’d use this stuff called “Dr. Zarbees”. <-- Click there to see a whole bunch of Dr. Zarbees' products for kids and adults. The two I use specifically are Zarbees Daytime and Zarbees Nighttime (with melatonin to help you sleep).
Chick-Fil-A is the last fast food restaurant on Earth… At least that’s the case in my eyes. Unfortunately they don’t sell pizza and burgers. If they did, they’d certainly corner the market. Or, maybe I should avoid this place like the plague because the owner doesn’t like this or that. I hear he doesn’t like my favorite baseball team – Oh no. I’m going to McZero’s…
Anyway. I’ve mentioned Chick-Fil-A on my blog before in my awesome “Chicken Sandwiches” post. Their chicken sandwiches are awesome. But I’ve recently discovered other reasons to prefer Chick-Fil-A over lesser fast food restaurants…
1. The food is, for the most part, better. I don’t know if other fast food restaurants offer a chicken salad sandwich – but this damned thing is unreal! Brett ‘ll back me up (right?). Soft whole grain bread with chicken salad and a legitimate, big piece of crispy, fresh dark green lettuce. Not that wet, floppy crap you get at McDonalds or Burger King. It’s a touch sweet – I think there might be some relish – I’m not sure. I don’t care enough to research it. It’s just a darn good sandwich.
