THE SUPERBUGS ARE COMING!!!

We are supposed to get all spun up, turn over our entire life’s savings and acquiesce to any requests Big Pharma makes of us. A century of ubiquitous use of, inexpensive penicillin and derivatives therof has created . . . SUPERBUGS ! ! ! These terrifying monsters cannot be killed with the current known antibiotics … even if you add in All the king’s horses and all the king’s men. But wait! What if you step outside the DOMINANT petro-chemical, pill-popping, needle-injecting, pharmaceutical industry?   Oregano essential oil kills antibiotic resistant superbugs “without any side effects” urges scientist … Pharma-controlled media SILENT Thursday, February 23, 2017 by: Tracey Watson Tags: antibiotic resistance, carvacrol, healing, natural remedies, Oil of Oregano, superbugs […]

understanding the immune system

I grew up playing in the dirt, ditches, the woods and sundry awful, dirty, dangerous uncontrolled places. I raised three daughters the same way. Mud pies, heck yeah. Our marvelous immune systems thrive on such stuff. Big Pharma wants to kill it off – and far too often, is successful.   Children raised in rural environments and surrounded by animals develop stronger immune systems Thursday, June 07, 2018 by: Carol Anderson Tags: animals, bacteria, city life, exposure, goodhealth, hormones, immune response, immune system, mental health, microorganisms, mind body science, nature, outdoors, Pets, rural life, stress, urban life           3,260Views   (Natural News) It’s said that being in rural areas has enormous benefits to our physical health.

misspelling plague

Why did misspelling “HUGE” become popular? It is not like the word is difficult. Nor is HUGE among the thousands of English Language words where the spelling makes no sense. It isn’t even a big, complicated word. But I see these annoying headlines and comments in many diverse spaces. It just makes me cringe. So I’ll put it in one more place. Ick. Here’s a yuuuge wage gap Trump ought to close Source: Investors Business Daily I do with it the same as I do with other gross misspellings: Pronounce them as written. X mass – shoppeeee – yewdge. The feely-huggy marshmallows leading classrooms full of mold-able clay have decided that correctly writing the language of this country is too […]

Welcome to “Clean out my saved stories week”. Too many “Wow, that is really interesting” links have waited too long to be shared. In every clip I share a bit of the article while the headline is a click-able link to the whole thing at its source. Follow those links, then come on back for more. Waking Times has a very good article about FLAVOR. It starts off asking and answering the question of “Why is there flavor?” It then moves into the Dorito story, which is more about the creation and subsequent explosion in use of ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS. Which, of course, gets to the heart of the problem with all that. “I got deep into the science of flavor […]

news nibbles

I am putting together a handful of news stories that do not warrant their own page here. First is an interesting story of major predators becoming prey. Making it into the financial top 1% is typically a measure of one’s ruthlessness more than any other single attribute. Genius is rarely involved. The Theranos scheme clearly demonstrates that. Attending an institution like Stanford University is not an option for the lower classes like middle and below. The Elizabeth Holmes story starts with her dropping out of her second year there. While the one-percenters might otherwise respect and embrace her crafty immorality, it probably doesn’t go well that she preyed on them rather than the lower 99%-ers. But gol-dang she put on […]

Why Unschoolers Grow Up to Be Entrepreneurs

The fascinating link between unschooling and entrepreneurship by Kerry McDonald from Foundation for Economic Education Almost by definition, entrepreneurs are creative thinkers and experimental doers. They reject the status quo and devise new approaches and better inventions. They are risk-takers and dreamers, valuing ingenuity over convention. They get things done. It shouldn’t be surprising to learn that many unschoolers become entrepreneurs. Able to grow up free from a coercive classroom or traditional school-at-home environment, unschoolers nurture interests and passions that may sprout into full-fledged careers. Their creativity and curiosity remain intact, uncorrupted by a mass education system intent on order and conformity. Their energy and exuberance, while a liability in school, are supported with unschooling, fostering the stamina necessary to […]

website security and reliability

In February I changed hosting services. That took a lot more learning than I expected. It also had a large number of failures before my perseverance finally resolved the myriad details that had to be addressed exactly so. Even before I finally achieved the reliability in presentation and fluid ability to post new articles to my sites, I began getting messages suggesting I really, really ought to convert to the more secure access offered by “HTTPS”, as opposed to unsecured plain HTTP. Enter, once again, more details that I did not know and had to learn about. Today I think my websites are reliably, consistently up on HTTPS with improved security for thee and me. To take advantage of that, […]
