What to do....

Aloha Robin,
I've had a lot of emotion surface recently and I'm having a hard time processing it all and gaining clarity. It's affecting my household to a great extent. I'd love if you might have some insight, clarity of direction for me to consider and may be beneficial in moving forward.

BTW, I really liked the hands on head blessing advice from todays show.

How Restaurants Trick You

Wake-Up Call-9/17/14

How menus trick you into spending more. Restaurants know that the right wording and layout can get you to shell out more money for the same entrée. That's because higher priced and unhealthy items are strategically presented to look the most appetizing.

Two recent and separate analyses of restaurant menus came up with strikingly similar conclusions. Restaurants are trying to guide your eye to certain items, even when cheaper or healthier options are flagged. Menu names with descriptive items sell better and lead you to believe that they taste better, according to a new study of 217 menus and selections of over 300 diners by researchers at Cornell University.

The researchers cite a case where the names of restaurant menu items were changed to make them more exotic: The seafood filet, for example, became "succulent Italian seafood filet," and red beans and rice became "Cajun red beans and rice."
Sales of these renamed items with descriptions rose by 28 percent and were rated as tastier, even though the recipes before and after were identical. What's more, diners were also willing to spend an average of 12 percent more for a menu item with a fancy name.

Any food item that attracts attention with bold, highlighted or a colored font, an item that's set apart in its own special box on the menu, or anything listed as a "house favorite," is more likely to be ordered than an item listed next to it, the study found.

The reason consumers should be concerned? "In most cases, these are the least healthy items on the menu," says the study's co-author Brian Wansink, and author of "Slim by Design: Mindless Eating Solutions for Everyday Life."

Similar to the way supermarkets put the higher margin foods at eye level, menus place higher priced items where consumers will most likely see them. On a menu, this is often on the top-right or bottom-left.

Menu items are also given exotic descriptions to make them seem worth greater than they actually are, and although images of food on a menu may be too down-market for some restaurants, those tantalizing photos often work.

Surprisingly, restaurants provide low calorie labels on their menus that can actually cause people to choose higher calorie and also more expensive options, according to a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research. Most menus are complex, offering numerous dishes with lots of ingredients, so diners have come to expect low-calorie food to either taste bad or not fill them up.

"By calorie-organizing a menu, restaurants make it easier for people to use the general low-calorie label to dismiss all low-calorie options early in the decision process," the study concluded.

“Restaurants may want to avoid using diet words to reduce consumers' perceptions that the food tastes bad,". "But at the same time they don't want to turn off a segment of consumers most restaurants are targeting -- that is, the health-conscious consumer."

Buyer-beware!!! One of the reasons for these wake-up calls is to make you aware of the lies, tricks and manipulations that we are bombarded with on a daily basis by companies trying to get our money, or more of it!

And that’s Bob’s Wake-Up Call for today………………..

Robin--Will miss the show today :(

Hi Robin,

I really wanted to call in this week, but I have a work meeting. I guess it wasn't meant to be! Anyway, I wanted to share that I have noticed within myself a deep sense of peace. In fact I just told my husband that I was feeling unusually peaceful and that I liked it! It's contentment and peace...it's so great!

Perhaps this is my opportunity to give back...on National Peace day.

Have a great show! Peace and Love,

“At Least 4 Known Alien Species
Have Been Visiting Earth
For Thousands Of Years”
X Canadian Defence Minister
Continues To Blow The Whistle

January 6, 2014
by Arjun Walia
Video – click and scroll: http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/01/06/at-least-4-known-alien-sp...

I am well aware that just because somebody (no matter what their ‘position’) says something to be true, does not mean it’s true. Exceptions, however can be made if there is evidence that goes beyond their words and correlates with what they say. At the end of the day, you have to listen to what your heart tells you.

Paul Hellyer was the Canadian Minister of National Defense in the 1960′s during the cold war. He wasCanada. The Honorable Paul Hellyer is the highest ranking person among all g8 countries to o responsible for combining the Canadian Air Force, Navy and Army into what is known today as the Canadian Forces. He was the highest ranking person (on paper) inside of the Department of Defence for penly speak about UFOs and extraterrestrials.

He has been speaking about UFOs and extraterrestrials for quite some time now, and he recently made an appearance on RT news stating that there are at least 4 known alien species that have been visiting Earth for thousands of years.

Upon retirement, Hellyer began to blow the whistle on UFOs and extraterrestrials. His testimony is backed up by hundreds of other high ranking military and political personnel all over the world, including official documents released by dozens of governments worldwide that have officially acknowledged the presence of UFOs.

I think it’s also important to point out that the Canadian government recently acknowledged the fact that various federal agencies, including Transport Canada, the RCMP and the Department of National Defence used to track and investigate UFO sightings. (1) They claim to have stopped those programs, but that contradicts the defence minister’s (Hellyer) claims. There is good reason to believe, and a lot of evidence to suggest that some of these UFOs are indeed extraterrestrial space craft (not all military), and the activities of the agencies responsible for these programs goes far beyond just tracking of UFOs, but into contact with various extraterrestrial races, other classified technological developments and more.

Here is some of what Paul Hellyer has to say, for more you can watch the video clip below:

” In one of the cases during the cold war, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe. The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided that with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years. There’s been a lot more activity in the past two decades, especially since we invented the atomic bomb. They are very concerned about that and if we will use it again, because the whole cosmos is a unity and it affects not just us but other people in the cosmos. They’re very much afraid that we might start using atomic weapons again and this would be very bad for us, and them also.” – Paul Hellyer

“Many are benign and benevolent, and a few are not. They come from various places, for a long while I only knew about ones that came from different star systems, the Pleadies. There are extraterrestrials that come from Andromeda, and ones that live on one of Saturn’s moon’s. There is a federation of these people, and they have rules, one of them is that they don’t interfere with our affairs unless they are invited. They have accepted the fact that this is our planet, and we have the right to run it but they are very concerned, they don’t think that we are good stewards of our planet. We are ruining our planet, we’re doing all sorts of things that we shouldn’t be doing, and they don’t like that. They’ve made it clear, and they have given us a warning.” – Paul Hellyer

“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. It is ironic that the US should be fighting monstrously expensive wars, allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both congress and the commander in chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.” – Paul Hellyer

I feel the UFO energy here/ heard Ships last night, too

Boy, felt a lot of confirms for this, in the form of energy down my back and seat and legs.

The portions about what was reported to occur in 1961 really resonate for me - I am a Canadian who was born in 1961, and also have a key past life in Halifax.
Amazingly, even know the specific street address where we lived in the 1800s and was able to Earth Google it!
Hope to make a past life pilgrimage there next summer - will be only a 12 hour drive when in Quebec.
Not normally that close...will ask Spirit to assist if it's for my highest good to go there. :-)

I heard ships again last night, which is new for me.
Only the 3rd or 4th time.
Muscle-testing confirmed "Ashtar Command".
It was comforting to know they watch over my master suite, now that we're friends, unlike our first encounter when Ashtar landed too heavily on me a year ago August, and paralyzed me.
That dude is incredibly heavy! It's amusing now, it was NOT funny when I couldn't breathe.

Poor Midnight later verified it all to Darcy, and told her he was so scared by 'the fire'.
(He was seeing what looked like fire to him at the base of the ships.)

Life's a trip, isn't it? This group clearly doesn't need much TV! Our LIVES are much more interesting. :-)

Love you all - Wendy

The Pope on UFOs

Vatican Preparing Statement on Extraterrestrial Life

by Michael E. Salla, Ph.D.

Source: stage3alpha


Pope Francis is reportedly preparing a major world statement about extraterrestrial life and its theological implications. Rosana Ubanell from Voxxi News today reported that due to advances in scientific detection methods for the discovery of extraterrestrial life, Pope Francis wants to be ready with a statement about “First Contact”. Ubanell reports that details have yet to be officially announced but that the Vatican’s interest in extraterrestrial life is well documented through recent astrobiology conferences the Vatican Observatory has sponsored or participated in. Father Guy Consolmagno, a Jesuit astronomer and one of the leading Catholic proponents for preparing for the scientific discovery of extraterrestrial life, on July 18, won the Carl Sagan science medal from the American Astronomical Society. Pope Francis, a fellow Jesuit, regularly consults with Consolmagno and other leading Vatican astronomers about scientific issues. It is likely that Pope Francis is preparing an “Urbi et Orbi” speech – Latin for “to the city [of Rome] and the world” – about First Contact with extraterrestrial life.

The Vatican’s scientific interest in extraterrestrial life was publicly revealed for the first time in May 2008 when the head of the Vatican Observatory, Fr Gabriel Funes, also a Jesuit, gave an interview to the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano. Funes made a series of startling statements about how extraterrestrial life is likely to be more ethically evolved than humans, and can be welcomed as brothers. In his interview, which was titled “The extraterrestrial is my brother,” Funes said that intelligent extraterrestrial life may not have experienced a ‘fall’, and may be “free from Original Sin ... [remaining] in full friendship with their creator.” This makes it possible to regard them as ‘our brothers’ as Funes explained:

Just as there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, there can be other beings, even intelligent, created by God. This is not in contrast with our faith because we can’t put limits on God’s creative freedom... “Why can’t we speak of a ‘brother extraterrestrial’? It would still be part of creation...

Most importantly, Funes’ statement makes possible the idea that Christianity can be exported to extraterrestrial worlds that have not experienced a ‘fall’ and are free from original sin.

Just over a year after his interview, Funes was the organizer of the first ever Astrobiology Symposium held by Pontifical Academy of Sciences in November 2009. Consolmagno and Funes have ever since played leading roles for the Vatican Observatory in presenting a theological perspective on the discovery of extraterrestrial life. Most importantly, both have been leading advisors to Pope Francis about scientific issues concerning the discovery of extraterrestrial life.

What is likely to be the content of Pope Francis’ upcoming statement or possible “Urbi et Orbi” speech about alien life? An important clue is a forthcoming presentation by Fr. Consolmagno at a September 18-19, 2014, astrobiology symposium organized by NASA and the Library of Congress that is titled: “Preparing for Discovery: A Rational Approach to the Implications of Finding Microbial, Complex or Intelligent Life Beyond Earth.”

Consolmagno is a featured presenter and will discuss the theological implications of discovering alien life. His topic, “Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?” suggests that Pope Francis agrees that extraterrestrials are capable of the higher ethics involved in understanding the Christian message and becoming Christians.

If Pope Francis is indeed preparing a statement about extraterrestrial life, it is likely to emphasize that there is no incompatibility in Christian teachings with a belief in extraterrestrial life as Fr. Funes proposed in May 2008. More importantly, Pope Francis is likely to emphasize themes of extraterrestrials: not sharing in original sin; being more ethically evolved; and being capable of sharing the Christian message, and being our brothers.

Not all will welcome a statement from Pope Francis advocating extraterrestrials as brothers and worthy of being baptized into the Christian faith. According to Chris Putnam and Tom Horn, authors of Exovaticana, Pope Francis I is preparing to lead the Catholic Church to embrace aliens as “brothers in Christ” – reflective of the 1950s and 1960s contactee reports of benevolent “space brothers.” Putnam’s and Horn’s Exovaticana portends a future religious war between those accepting extraterrestrials as “brothers in Christ” and those believing them to be returning demons about to enslave us. Despite the extensive scholarship found in Exovaticana, it unfortunately skews data towards an overly negative assessment of the motivations of extraterrestrial visitors. Thankfully, the Vatican’s evolving public position, as reflected by statements from its leading astronomers, shows a far more enlightened stance on how to consider the discovery of alien life from a theological perspective. A statement or “Urbi et Orbi” speech from Pope Francis expounding on various themes associated with the view that extraterrestrials are potential “brothers in Christ’ is a welcome position to take on a controversial issue with major world significance.

Original Sin

I will trust Spirit has this one, and not let a message of brotherhood and tolerance turn into another divisive debate about "original sin"?
That feels like a red herring here, that twists this all about.

Oh my! Such ego (first typed

Oh my! Such ego (first typed suck-my bad). Just had a quick picture of The Brotherhood, Ashtar and his Command, Adama and all standing in front of the religious leaders and saying to those religious leaders, "You want us to do what?".

Things are so funny to me today. Next thing you know there will be a quarrel over who saw "them" first. Eee gads. Transmute I tell you! Transmute!!

Wake-Up Call-9/10/14 Trees

Wake-Up Call-9/10/14

Trees Actually Lower Your Risk of Dying

Outdoor air pollution is a serious environmental health risk linked to both chronic and acute health conditions, including stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, asthma, and respiratory infections.

According to the World Health Organization outdoor air pollution in both cities and rural areas caused an estimated 3.7 million premature deaths worldwide in 2012, the majority of which were due to heart disease and strokes.

The World Health Organization also noted: “Most sources of outdoor air pollution are well beyond the control of individuals and demand action by cities, as well as national and international policymakers in sectors like transportation, energy waste management, and agriculture.”

This is largely true, but there is one environmental change that could have a dramatic influence on air pollution, and its effects on human health, and that is planting more trees, especially in urban areas.

A new study actually quantified the benefits to human health from trees’ impacts on outdoor air pollution, and they were quite remarkable.

Trees Save 850 Lives and Billions in Health Costs Each Year

In the first broad-scale estimate of air pollution removal by trees in the United States, researchers found that trees and forests in the United States removed 17.4 million tons of air pollution in 2010, with human health effects valued at $6.8 billion. Its effects on human health were significant, especially in urban areas. The health impacts included the avoidance of more than: 850 deaths; 670,000 cases of acute respiratory symptoms; 430,000 incidences of asthma exacerbation; and 200,000 school days lost.

As you might suspect, most of the pollution removal occurred in rural areas, where tree cover can be as high as 88 percent, but most of the health impacts were within urban areas, where air pollution tends to be worse and population levels are higher.

Trees remove air pollution primarily by the uptake of pollutants via the pores on the outer “skin” layers of their leaves.

“Trees affect air quality through the direct removal of air pollutants.
Adding trees to urban areas was deemed to be particularly important, given the trees’ close proximity to people. The researchers added:

“…96 percent of pollution removal from trees occurred on rural land. However, as human populations are concentrated in urban areas, the health effects and values derived from pollution removal are concentrated in urban areas. Thus in terms of impacts on human health, trees in urban areas are substantially more important than rural trees due to their proximity to people. The greatest monetary savings are derived in areas with the greatest population density.”

So the moral of the story is, PLANT MORE TREES, ESPICALLY IN BIG CITIES.

The information for the Wake-Up Call was obtained from an article written by Dr. Mercola titled, “Trees Actually Lower Your Risk of Dying”

And that’s Bob’s Wake-Up Call for today……………………….

Wake-Up Call-9/3/14---Glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt]

Research scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT raised plenty of eyebrows recently with a bold proclamation on autism at a special panel in Massachusetts about Genetically Modified Organisms or GMO’s.

She’s a widely published author on topics ranging from Azlheimer’s Disease to autism to cardiovascular disease.

She said, “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic,” at an event sponsored by the holistic-focused Groton Wellness Organization.
Dr. Seneff presented slides showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the rising use of Roundup, with its active ingredient glyphosate, [glahy-fos-eyt] on crops, and the rising rates of autism.
The slides note that the heaviest use of Roundup, Monsanto’s flagship weed killer, began in 1990 and continued to rise ever since. Meanwhile, the number of kids with autism has gone from 1 in 5,000 in 1975 to 1 in 68 today, a puzzling and frustrating stat that shows no signs of slowing down, and one that correlates strongly with the rise in glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt] use.

Of course, autism is a complex problem with many potential causes, but the numbers are particularly of note, considering how close the correlation is, and what Dr. Seneff’s credentials are.

Dr. Seneff has written 10 papers in various medical and health journals on modern diseases as well as drug side effects, nutritional deficiencies and the impacts of environmental toxins on our health.

Once she had completed her presentation, all of the 70 or so people in attendance were squirming, likely because they now had serious misgivings about serving their kids, or themselves, anything with corn or soy, which are nearly all Genetically Modified, and thus tainted with Roundup and its glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt]. These GMO crops are bred to resist damage from Roundup, which destroys the weeds around them.

If glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt] is as harmful as Dr. Seneff’s correlations suggest, then its poisonous effects extend nearly everywhere--to all soft drinks and candies sweetened with corn syrup, and all chips and cereals filled with soy, not to mention cattle and chicken that are fed soy. But it isn't just corn and soy, it’s wheat as well, since wheat is nearly all sprayed with Roundup just prior to being harvested, according to Dr. Seneff….which means all non-organic bread is tainted.

“At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic,” Dr. Seneff said. Presumably, if Roundup and glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt] accelerate their spread in the U.S. and around the world, the predicted one-in-two autism cases could happen even sooner.

Among Dr. Seneff’s key points are:

1. Glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt] sickens by killing beneficial gut bacteria and stimulating the loss of key minerals like cobalt, iron, and manganese.

2. Glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt] is present in unusually high quantities in the breast milk of American mothers, to the tune of 760 to 1,600 times the allowable limits in European drinking water.

3. Urine testing shows Americans have ten times the glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt] accumulation as Europeans.

4. Children with autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt].

5. The same correlations between glyphosate [glahy-fos-eyt] and autism show up in deaths from senility.

The problem here is that the products most heavily treated with Monsanto’s Roundup—corn, soy, and wheat—are pervasive within our food chain. MIT’s Dr. Seneff said, “In my view, the situation is almost beyond repair”. We need to do something drastic or we risk the demise of the human race and a mass extinction unparalleled by previous events.”

If this is not a wake-up call, I don’t know what is……….And that’s the
Wake-Up call for today………….

CreativeEnergy's picture

Link autism-senility?

This wake up call is so immense it's hard to comprehend.
I need more action steps, but there may be none for now but 'eat organic' and fight GMOs.

Robin, we'll get some answers in my next private session.
Perhaps a thread to pull between Uncle Jack's sudden dementia and his granddaughter Liz's autism?

I learned after Mystic today his balance has been failing (age 82) but otherwise fairly active.
No gardening/lawn care-highly allergic to bee stings beyond level of Epipen (?) prophalyxis.

He has been falling more frequently, and took a hard fall last week inside the house and hit his head.
His wife couldn't get him up and called 911.
He was so disoriented he was taken to a facility.

There is some discussion of returning him home with nursing care support.
His only request is to go home, and finances support it but wife may not.

I have a niece and nephew with autism, too, so that's 3 in my family.
Two early 20s, one 16.
The stress on these families is never-ending.

Look forward to helping any way I can via a session!

Many thanks, Robin & Bob.

How to do a MAP Session

This meditation technique was created by Michelle Small Wright.

Prepare your meditation by being certain that you will not be disrupted. You are to be alone; not even an animal around you for up to 10 feet. Lay down with your arms by your side and your legs uncrossed. Begin to speak out loud.

Ask for the following to be with you. Invite them.

“I invite my Higher Self, the Overlighting Deva of my Health, Pan and the Nature Spirits and my personal MAP team to be present. (If you do not know the name of your MAP team ask them to tell you what it is so each time that you go into meditation you can call them by name.)

Once you invite them in speak out loud and tell them what your concerns are. What is your need? What needs to be healed? The premise is that if you can articulate what is wrong than you are ready for the healing.

Lay there still. If you feel that you are irritated in anyway and feel a compulsion to move before you move tell your Team that you feel a need to move. If they do not remove the agitation then go ahead and move. Then be still again when you can.

Lay there for up to an hour. I usually do this meditation for 15 minutes.

When you are complete in your meditation time, thank all Beings who were there with you and tell them that you are closing the meditation time. Then get up very gently. Drink some water and nurture yourself.

You can do this meditation as you are guided to do it. Just know that even when the meditation is over your healing will continue. Give yourself time between meditations to let your body, mind and soul heal.

China is rejecting GMO & other GMO issues & concerns

The GMO Fight
Ripples Down
the Food Chain

Facing Consumer Pressure, More Firms
Are Jettisoning GMOs From Their Foods

August 12th, 2014
The Wall Street Journal
by Annie Gasparro

Two years ago, Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc. initiated a plan to eliminate genetically modified ingredients ; from its ice cream, an effort to address a nascent consumer backlash and to fulfill its own environmental goals.

This fall, nearly a year behind schedule, it expects to finish phase one, affecting its flavorful “chunks and swirls” like cookie dough and caramel. The only part left to convert: the milk that makes ice cream itself. Thanks to the complexities of sourcing milk deemed free of genetically modified material, that could take five to 10 more years.

“There’s a lot more that goes into it than people realize,” said Rob Michalak, Ben & Jerry’s director of social mission.

Two decades after the first genetically engineered seeds were sold commercially in the U.S., genetically modified organisms—the crops grown from such seeds—are the norm in the American diet, used to make ingredients in about 80% of packaged food, according to industry estimates. (Take a quiz about GMOs.)

Now an intensifying campaign, spearheaded by consumer and environmental advocacy groups like Green America, is causing a small but growing number of mainstream food makers to jettison genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. In addition to Ben & Jerry’s, a subsidiary of Unilever PLC, General Mills Inc. this year started selling its original flavor Cheerios without GMOs. Post Holdings Inc. took the GMOs out of Grape-Nuts. Boulder Brands Inc.’s Smart Balance has converted to non-GMO for its line of margarine and other spreads. Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. is switching to non-GMO corn tortillas.

“Non-GMO” is one of the fastest-growing label trends on U.S. food packages, with sales of such items growing 28% last year to about $3 billion, according to market-research firm Nielsen. In a poll of nearly 1,200 U.S. consumers for The Wall Street Journal, Nielsen found that 61% of consumers had heard of GMOs and nearly half of those people said they avoid eating them. The biggest reason was because it “doesn’t sound like something I should eat.”

Grass roots campaigns in several states are pushing for mandatory labeling of foods with GMOs—something most food companies staunchly oppose. In May, Vermont adopted the first state law requiring companies to label GMO foods, starting in 2016.

The anti-GMO backlash reflects the deep skepticism that has taken root among many U.S. consumers toward the food industry and, in particular, its use of technology. Similar criticism has roiled other food ingredients including artificial sweeteners and finely textured beef, the treated meat product that critics dubbed “pink slime.” The Web and social media have enabled consumer suspicions in such matters to coalesce into powerful movements that are forcing companies to respond.

Critics of GMOs—which have combined genes from different organisms to make some staple crops more durable—say there haven’t been enough independent studies on the long-term health and environmental consequences of what they dub as “Frankenfood.” They cite a handful of studies outside the U.S. that found toxic effects on animals fed genetically modified crops, and point out that 64 nations, including the European Union countries and China, require labeling of GMO products.

“If it turns out that after doing the studies, the scientific evidence shows GMOs are OK, I will change my mind,” said Alisa Gravitz, a board member of the Non-GMO Project and chief executive of Green America. “But until then, why infect our entire food supply with this, when the early studies, the bona fide, peer-reviewed ones, throw up some red flags?”

For its part, the food industry says those studies are inconclusive and that none has shown any link to harm to humans. Proponents also point out that GMO crops used in the U.S.—which also include alfalfa, cotton, papaya and squash—have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, which doesn’t mandate labeling food that contains them. And even though the European Union requires labeling in member countries, it has approved many GMO foods as safe for consumption.

The debate aside, how companies like General Mills and Ben & Jerry’s fare in dropping GMOs will offer a guide to others that are considering it. So far, the process has proved expensive, complex and politically dicey. For Ben & Jerry’s, the premium for non-GMO ingredients ranged from 5% to 20%, reflecting how deeply rooted the technology is in the U.S. food chain. Ben & Jerry’s says it plans to eat the costs rather than pass them on to customers.

But the forerunners are also encouraging farmers and ingredient manufacturers to increase the supply of non-GMO items, which could make it easier for food makers to follow.

Certainly, the stakes are large for companies like Monsanto Co. and DuPont Co., which sell genetically engineered seeds to give crops traits like the ability to repel insects or resist weed killers. Today, more than 90% of corn, canola, soybean and sugar beet crops in the U.S. are genetically modified. Most of the produce Americans consume directly isn’t GMO, but the crops are used to produce common ingredients like corn syrup, soy lecithin and more than half of the sugar consumed in the U.S.—plus the feed consumed by most of the nation’s livestock.

In a statement, a spokeswoman for Monsanto said the company was confident ; about the safety of its seeds based on an “extensive body of rigorous testing” by company and independent researchers. DuPont pointed out the technology was backed by “regulatory agencies and scientific organizations around the world.” The switch to GMO, proponents say, has led to higher crop yields and lower food costs.

When a big brand announces plans to drop GMOs, it stirs the debate further. GMO backers criticized General Mills for its change to Cheerios, saying it gave credence to misperceptions of the technology. Anti-GMO groups quickly started calling on General Mills to drop them from its Honey Nut Cheerios, too. The company said that changing the ingredients of its other cereals would be too difficult, but that GMO products are safe, adding that it offered the non-GMO variety to give consumers more options.

Ben & Jerry’s, which ranks fifth among U.S. ice cream brands by sales, says it doesn’t consider GMOs unsafe to humans either, but has always positioned itself as an environmentally friendly, socially progressive brand. Executives long wanted to drop GMOs, which they feel are part of industrialized, chemical-intensive agriculture that the company opposes, said Mr. Michalak, the social mission director. But the company didn’t start discussing converting its flavors with suppliers until 2012.

That year, anti-GMO advocates got on the California ballot Proposition 37, a measure requiring GMO labeling similar to the one that later passed in Vermont. Food and agriculture companies poured more than $46 million into advertising to fight the measure , saying it would confuse consumers and raise food costs. The measure narrowly failed to pass, but it galvanized GMO opponents and put the industry on notice.

Ben & Jerry’s didn’t get directly involved in the California fight. But the battle “catalyzed the movement for us,” said Cheryl Pinto, Ben & Jerry’s ingredient sourcing manager. “When all the non-GMO hoopla hit the fan, we realized we better accelerate our conversion.”

Aside from the milk, Ben & Jerry’s said most ice cream ingredients were already non-GMO. Still, the company needed to check with suppliers and rigorously investigate all 110 ingredients it uses to make ice cream. Among the surprises: finding out a product couldn’t be considered non-GMO if the supplier dusted the pan with cornstarch before baking. The supplier had to switch to rice starch.

“Our suppliers generally had to negotiate all the way down the supply chain to get to the farmer,” Ms. Pinto said.

At the farm level, companies confront a chicken-or-egg-type conundrum. Food makers are hesitant to commit to dropping GMOs until they are sure they can find sufficient sources of non-GMO crops. But farmers are reluctant to switch seeds unless they know there will be guaranteed demand for non-GMO crops at a premium price.

Mercaris, a market data researcher, said prices last year for non-GMO corn averaged 51 cents per bushel higher than those for regular, GMO corn. That is a significant difference for farmers when the national average corn price was between $4 to $4.50. But some farmers also worry that dropping GMO seeds could lower their yields, meaning fewer bushels per acre.

Ben & Jerry’s paid an average of 11% more for each ingredient that changed to a non-GMO version. In some cases that also included the higher cost of sourcing ingredients from Fair Trade suppliers—those certified as paying fair prices to producers in developing countries—which it did simultaneously.

The company says it can’t quantify how much it spent on the non-GMO conversion in total. “It was really expensive,” Ms. Pinto said. “Surcharges came in from transportation. Instead of buying beet sugar from down the road, you’re buying cane sugar from much farther away.” The conversion also required time and money to design new labeling and marketing and carry out legal reviews, she said.

For its Chubby Hubby ice cream, Ben & Jerry’s had to change peanut butter pretzel suppliers because ConAgra Foods Inc., which bought the company that supplied the pretzels, was unwilling or unable to adhere to the non-GMO and Fair Trade requirements, according to people familiar with the situation. The change in suppliers also caused a shift from peanut butter-filled pretzels to peanut butter-coated ones, prompting some consumers to complain. ConAgra declined to comment.

To some degree, Ben & Jerry’s process was simple relative to what some companies put themselves through. Unlike with organic foods—which also can’t contain GMOs but must follow additional restrictions—the government sets no standard for what qualifies as “non-GMO.” Companies seeking some authoritative imprimatur must go to third-party certifiers, usually the Non-GMO Project, a nonprofit group founded by natural foods retailers. It vets applicants with an almost religious exactitude.

To gain its certification, Enjoy Life Foods LLC, a small Schiller Park, Ill.-based company that makes gluten- and allergen-free snacks, traced its honey to the hive. “We had to go to our honey suppliers, who went to the bee keepers, who had to actually determine how far the bees could fly to make sure they weren’t cross-pollinating at any GMO fields,” said Joel Warady, its chief sales and marketing officer.

He said the company thought it was done a year before it actually was, because Non-GMO Project kept coming with questions, including how far their bees flew. “I was like, ‘Are you serious? I don’t know,’ ” said Mr. Warady. ” ‘I didn’t talk to the bees.’ ”

The Non-GMO Project, which has verified more than 17,000 products, says such lengths are necessary to ensure the bees aren’t feeding on nectar or pollen from GMO crops. Thus, the organization requires a four-mile radius from the bee hives be clear of GMO fields.

“Consumers don’t know how difficult it is, but they also don’t care how difficult it is,” said Mr. Warady. “They say, ‘I want the food all natural. I want it to be non-GMO. I want it to taste great. And by the way, I don’t want to pay any more for that. Figure it out.’ ” Enjoy Life Foods doesn’t explicitly pass on the added costs, but its food is already priced at a premium to mainstream brands. For its part, Ben & Jerry’s didn’t seek Non-GMO Project certification, citing the complexity, but does use an auditor. “For us, our size and our scale, we had to be” realistic about where to start, Ms. Pinto said.

The number of big companies that have announced plans to drop GMOs is still small. Big industry groups like the Grocery Manufacturers Association say the trend is baseless, but they admit it is growing. They continue to lobby against GMO labeling and tout the benefits of the technology.

Still, industry executives say many of those companies are asking suppliers to develop non-GMO options so that they can be ready in case label mandates spread, which the companies fear could hurt products containing GMOs. Brian Sethness, senior account executive at Sethness Products Co., which supplies caramel coloring to major food and beverage companies, said the company is receiving more inquiries about non-GMO products than ever before. “Most haven’t pulled the trigger yet though, they just want to know what’s out there,” he said.

For Ben & Jerry’s, the biggest hurdle is milk. The vast majority of the feed given to dairy cows in the U.S. is made with GMO corn, soybeans and alfalfa. That makes it difficult to find non-GMO milk in quantities large enough for Ben & Jerry’s, so the company hasn’t committed to doing it. Labeling laws like the one passed in Vermont don’t apply to meat or dairy derived from animals that consumed GMO animal feed, buying Ben & Jerry’s more time. “We are having conversations with multiple stakeholders throughout the entire supply chain,” Mr. Michalak said. “It’s a slow process.”


China Is Rejecting
GMO Corn and That
Isn't Good
for American

13 August 2014 11:07
By Anna Brones

The industrial agribusiness has embraced GMOs in the United States, but it’s having a serious effect on farmers. Most recently, China began rejecting a variety of genetically modified US corn, and the rejection is reportedly costing American farmers upwards of $3 billion, according to the National Feed and Grain Association.

The genetically engineered corn in question is one invented by the seed company Syngenta . The new gene has yet to be approved in China — in fact, it has been waiting for approval for four years. Since November, China has rejected more than 1.45 million metric tons . The corn was diverted to other buyers, but as the NFGA stated, it “almost assuredly would have negotiated a discount,” which means fewer dollars for American farmers.

A rejection of US grain in China has serious consequences here on home turf, as the country is one of the top importers of US corn, and its demand is projected to grow . But not if GMOs are involved.

GMOs have become an increasing concern in China. This spring, the Chinese Army banned all GMO grains and oil from its military supply stations. As the Wall Street Journal ; reports, “because of public concern over health risks and high-level discomfort with China becoming overly reliant on GMO strains developed by foreign companies, China has stopped short of allowing commercial distribution of GMO grains.”

China isn’t the only one. Russia has now announced that it won’t import GMO products , and the United States is having a hard time reaching a trade deal with the European Union because of GMOs .

Who should the farmers blame? The governments that don’t want the grain or the companies making them? They’re unsure.

According to NPR :

A few days ago, the US Grains Council ; wrote a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, urging his “immediate, direct, and personal intervention” with Chinese officials “to halt this current regulatory sabotage of the DDGS trade with China.”

The NGFA and the North American Export Grain Association ; , on the other hand, have called ; on Syngenta to stop selling the offending corn varieties until those varieties can be sold in major export markets.

“They’re being a bad actor here,” says Max Fisher of NGFA, referring to Syngenta. “They’re making $40 million” selling the new corn varieties, “but it’s costing U.S. farmers $1 billion.”

While companies will certainly find other channels for their grain, there’s no denying that the economic blow to farmers may fuel the conversation on GMOs moving forward.

6 of the Biotech Industry's
Biggest Marketing Myths
to Convince You
GMOs Are Great

Here are six of Big Biotech's biggest marketing lies.

By Martha Rosenberg
August 6, 2014

By now, you've likely heard of Big Agriculture and Big Pharma, the huge industries behind the food we eat and drugs we take that quite ably tend to avoid government regulation. Less well known is Big Biotech, genetic engineering companies like Monsanto, Novartis and DuPont that work closely with Big Ag to create more "efficient" foods through chemistry. A good example is recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), a genetically engineered milk stimulator invented by Monsanto but soon embraced by Big Ag for its profit potential—getting more milk out of each cow. Living animals are called "units," and treated as nothing more than unfeeling machines.

Another example is genetically modified golden rice , spun as a charitable effort to provide Vitamin A to the world's hungry but likely to make billions for herbicide, pesticide and chemical fertilizer makers, says geopolitical researcher and writer Tony Cartalucci. The "very concept of relieving suffering throughout the developing world with a monoculture of genetically altered 'super gruel' at face value is both undignified and untenable," he writes. Biotech companies also preempt traditional, localized food systems and development programs, Cartalucci points out.

Many countries reject the brave new biotech foods and Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and all 27 countries in Europe ban rBGH ; . But that did not stop Elanco, Eli Lilly's animal drug division, from buying the drug from Monsanto in 2008 and building a new production ; plant for it in Augusta, Georgia. Elanco is also the company behind the controversial growth producing drug ractopamine, used in most U.S. pigs and many cows and turkeys despite being banned almost everywhere but the U.S.

Recently, Elanco became the second largest livestock drug company in the world after acquiring Johnson & Johnson's Janssen Animal Health and veterinary products maker Heska Corp., ; in 2011 and Novartis Animal Health and poultry vaccine maker Lohmann Animal Health this year. Now it is trying to pry open new markets in Europe, Africa and Asia with appeals to addressing world hunger. It is exhorting activists to "feed the world" through supporting biotech food technology with its "ENOUGH" movement , rolled out on the website Sensible Table ; . Presented like a new program of UN/WHO, the campaign is just a cagey marketing strategy.

Here are six of the biggest marketing lies found in Elanco's new "How We'll Feed The World" report.

1. Unadulterated Food Is "Luxury" Food

People who want and eat unadulterated food are spoiled. "In developed countries, most consumers have many choices when it comes to their food supply," says Elanco. "Yet in developing nations, choices are more limited, and so is the ability to treat food as a luxury item or a lifestyle choice."

Is it a luxury to have food free from ractopamine or rBGH?

Not only does Elanco redefine unadulterated, normal food as a luxury in its ENOUGH campaign, it redefines GMOs, antibiotics, hormones, chemicals and production methods like battery egg cages as innovation. "Organics and 'luxury food' produced without innovation have almost become a status symbol for those who can afford it," says Elanco in a zing against organic and local farmers. "Is it fair—or justifiable—for shoppers living in comfort to disregard innovations that can help feed others?"

2. Consumers Who Want Unadulterated Food Are A Fringe Minority

Despite the throngs who shop at Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe's and local markets, food consumers seeking non-adulterated food are a "fringe minority voice that does not represent the consumer, but a socially charged agenda," says Elanco. The reason health-conscious consumers appear to be large numbers is because of the way surveys are written, charges Elanco. Instead of asking, "What’s important to you when you purchase beef?" surveys lead the witness by asking "Are you concerned about factory farms growing your food?"

Elanco further misreads the "fringe minority" by claiming they buy food on "vegetarian/vegan principles, support for organic systems, local food, and other ideologies."

Is wanting to avoid pesticides and antibiotics an ideology? Certainly products obtained from sick animals, endangered workers and a polluted environment are not healthy. Plus a recent study in the British Journal of Nutrition shows organic products are also more nutritious. Still, this group of ideologues "seeks to impose their agenda on others and take choices away from the majority," says Elanco.

3. The Web Spreads Lies About "Innovations"

There is a reason Big Pharma and Big Food do not like social media. It can't be bought, manipulated or spun. In 2013 GMOs generated about 70,000 social media mentions, says Elanco, presumably negative, which reveals that "consumer perceptions of innovative solutions in food production may be the biggest misunderstanding in the food chain today." People need to "look deeper to the online dialogue known as media mentions," cautions Elanco.

Big Ag is notorious for wanting to block social media. It has pushed Ag Gag laws through in eight states ; that criminalize whistleblowers. When Idaho lawmakers were confronted with grotesque undercover video from Bettencourt Dairies Dry Creek Dairy in Hansen, Idaho showing workers beating trapped cows and dragging a cow by a chain, they had a swift response: a law criminalizing videotaping of farms. Yet even leading pro-animal agriculture voices say streaming live video on factory farms might be the only way to stop abuse.

Big Pharma just got FDA approval to also fight "factually incorrect postings" on the Web and Twitter without having to list risks as they are required to do on ads. Otherwise, their "reputation can be shattered by bloggers," said the FDA about its industry buddy.

4. Biotech Food Is Green

It was a great moment in factory farming disingenuity. In 2009 the National Turkey Federation's Michael Ryblot told Congress if they took away his antibiotics it would increase manure and pollution and be less green because the animals couldn't be crammed together.

Similar arguments swirled around Monsanto's (now Elanco's) recombinant bovine growth hormone because Posilac made each cow "unit" produce more milk. "Fewer cows means less methane produced by bovine intestinal tracts, and manure production is cut by about 3.6 million tons” per year said an oped in the Washington Times . "At the same time, more than 5.5 million gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel (enough to power 8,800 homes) are saved, greenhouse gas emissions are lowered by 30,000 metric tons."

"More innovation not more animals," asserts the Elanco report, repeating the same biotech greenwashing. "Simply by using practices available today or already in the pipeline, cows around the world can increase their output by a mere half glass per cow, enough to satisfy future global demand," says Elanco in a veiled commercial for Posilac which it is still trying to hawk. In another section of the report, Elanco says innovation could save 747 million tons of feed, 618 billion gallons of water and 388 million acres of farmland a year. (Why does Big Ag only admit to environmental destruction when selling biotech?

5. Transporting Food Across the World Is Green

Even as many in the U.S. embrace the carbon footprint-friendly idea of locally grown food, Elacno touts the opposite. "Growing food in highly productive areas where the resources exist, then moving it to areas of need, offers far more efficient use of resources," says the report. "In fact, transportation accounts for less than 4% of the environmental impact of food production. Further, it’s cost effective. Refrigerated freight for a pound of meat to Asia adds just 15 cents on average to the cost."

The U.S. chicken industry has done similar computations. Last fall, the Obama administration approved the sale in the U.S. of chickens raised and slaughtered in the U.S. or Canada, "processed" in China and sent back to the U.S. What? Presumably the outsourced labor is cheap enough to offset transportation and refrigeration costs, though no one is addressing the carbon footprint. Sending chickens half way around the world and back has a precedent. Shrimp in the U.S. make a similar voyage.

"The U.S. currently allows shrimp to be sent to China for processing, including breading," reports Bloomberg.

This month new scandals have broken about dangers in China food production, affecting KFC, Starbucks, Pizza Hut and McDonald's. ;

6. Lack Of Biotech "Innovation" Causes World Hunger

It takes a lot of gall for biotech, which patents foods, corners markets and annihilates indigenous farmers and small farms to accuse its critics of causing world hunger. But that's just what the Elanco report does. Even though the World Food Program ; indicts climate change, poverty, unstable markets, war and displacement for world hunger (and says "the world produces enough to feed the entire global population of 7 billion people") Elanco blames critics of biotech. But what Elanco means by "hunger" is lack of meat, milk and egg products made with its growth producers, vaccines and other chemicals and therefore its profit centers.

Without Biotech, "consumers in Asia, Africa and Latin America will lack choices and have diminished ability to nourish their families with high-quality animal protein," warns Elanco.

But animal protein is often not a big part of indigenous food traditions. For example the Kenyan runners who consistently win U.S. marathons eat very little meat. And in fact, the World Food Program's High Energy Biscuits, a staple in the fight against world hunger, use grain sources to provide up to 15 grams of protein .

Like the controversial Christian live animal charity Heifer International which Elanco embraces and supports, an animal-based Western diet is deemed an upgrade and better for poor people despite its links to heart disease, obesity, diabetes and even cancer. Clearly Elanco's ENOUGH campaign has a lot more to do with feeding biotech than feeding the poor.

Wake Up Call- Does red dye

Wake Up Call- Does red dye make your kids crazy?

Robin and I got an interesting call this weekend. Our daughter Dawn and her husband Jeff took our 5 year old grandson to a birthday party. At the party a very impressively decorated Spider Man birthday cake was served.

Of course, when Jake was asked what piece of the cake he wanted, he picked the one with Spider Man on it, which included tons of red frosting!

Within a couple of hours of leaving the birthday party Jake began to cry, scream over nothing, would not listen to his mother, and when she reprimanded him he actually became even more rebellious. Jake was sent to his room, but before his mother could leave the room, Jake hit her and threw things at her!

Thank God Dawn knew this was not her son's normal behavior and this is not how he had been raised. She shut the door on a screaming Jake and quickly turned on the computer.

Dawn feeds her son organic food and never gives him store bought cakes with colorful frosting.

Dawn had mother's intuition, as she is Robin’s daughter. She figured the “RED FROSTING” was made with RED DYE, so she did a computer search asking the following question:

"Do children who consume RED DYE have behavior outbursts?"

She quickly learned that many children experience this phenomenon. They are not the problem, what they are eating is the problem. Many children have meltdowns, behave aggressively and act frustrated in inappropriate ways after eating RED DYE. The kids are treated like they have a problem. The internet is full of these stories.

Dawn and her husband went upstairs to talk to Jake. He was lying on his bed thinking he was in big trouble, with both of his parents coming to his room. Instead, they sat down with him and explained that he was not in trouble, but that he could not eat foods with RED DYE in them anymore.

They explained to him that bad food choices can hurt us and that good food, like Organic food, can nurture us. Jake's parents told him that from now on when he goes to birthday parties he cannot eat certain birthday cakes.

They told him that after birthday parties they’ll take him to get some healthy sweets, and now those sweets are Jake's new candy choices.

Dawn found the following candy companies that she, in good conscious, can give to her child. Listen closely as she had to search for quite some time to find companies that do not hide RED DYE #40 in their candy.

You have to be careful about feeding your kids chocolate, as some companies even hide RED DYE in their chocolate!

Here are the healthy candy companies that Dawn found:

• Endangered Species Chocolate

• Yum- E-Earth

• Sun-Spirt Premium Chocolate

• Unreal Candy

Unreal Candy is a line of “un-junked” versions of the most popular candies on the market. It takes the corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, dyes, and preservatives in candies like M&Ms, Reese’s Cups, and Milky Way Bars, and replaces them with BLUE A-GAVE NECTAR, ORGANIC PALM OIL, and other more natural ingredients.

These better ingredients don’t change the fact that Candy IS STILL Candy.
You’d be better off eating an organic banana.

But here is some good news: CVS Drug Stores, actually places UNREAL CANDY on the same shelves, and at that same price point as the “JUNK” candy they’re trying to replace, making it more competitive than most organic all-natural products on the market.

And that’s Bob’s Wake-Up call for today…………………..

WAKE UP to vaccines and autism

naturalnews.com printable article


Originally published August 25 2014

CDC whistleblower's secret letter to Gerberding released by Natural News as mainstream media desperately censors explosive story
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) The CDC whistleblower who has come forward with proof that the CDC knowingly covered up scientific evidence linking the MMR vaccine to autism has now been revealed as William W. Thompson, PhD. To share this story, use tags #vaccinegate and #EndVaccineViolence

Natural News has acquired a letter from William Thompson to former CDC head Dr. Julie Gerberding, dated February 2nd, 2004. The date of this letter is important because a pivotal Institute of Medicine (IoM) meeting on vaccine safety took place just one week later on February 9th. (See the full letter below.)

In this letter, William Thompson says he will be "presenting the summary of our results from the Metropolitan Atlanta Autism Case-Control Study," and he laments that the data will show MMR vaccines cause an increased risk of autism in youth African-American babies. He explains "I will have to present several problematic results relating to statistical associations between the receipt of MMR vaccine and autism."

He then goes on to implore Dr. Gerberding to respond to questions that had been raised by "Representative David Weldon" regarding the integrity of CDC scientists working in the immunization program. He also explains that the CDC has been covering up the truth about the safety problems the agency's own scientists had documented with vaccines, saying:

I've repeatedly told individuals in the [National Immunization Program Office of Directors] over the last several years that they're doing a very poor job representing immunization safety issues and that we're losing the public relations war.

In response to this letter, the CDC took deliberate action to retroactively alter the outcome of the autism study by arbitrarily eliminating most subjects from the study, thereby shrinking the sample size to a small data set which would not achieve statistical significance. This is a clear and irrefutable case of scientific fraud. This fraud allowed CDC scientists such as Colleen Boyle to testify before Congress that there was "no credible link" between MMR vaccines and autism.

CNN caught blatantly censoring CDC whistleblower story

The mainstream media is pulling out all the stops to try to memory hole this breaking news story. When a citizen journalist posted the facts of the story to a CNN iReport page, CNN quickly removed it to prevent the public from learning the truth about this extraordinary moment in medical history.

The story has now been reposted at another CNN iReport page which will no doubt be censored and removed by CNN very quickly as well. But here's the screen shot of what this page showed at the time of this writing:

All other mainstream media news sources, including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, etc., have been ordered to deliberately censor this story, just as Natural News reported last week. There is a desperate attempt under way right now to silence the CDC whistleblower and sweep this entire story under the rug before it explodes beyond the control of the corporate-run media.

What the truth-telling media has to say about the massive media cover-up
Here's some of the independent reporting on what's taking place right now:

From TruthBarrier.com:

CNN is now overtly complicit in the mainstream media blackout of the developing story of CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, who stepped forward and revealed that he had partaken in cooking data attempting to minimize the truth about the toxicity of the MMR vaccine in infants and the increased risk of developing autism.

Yesterday, on CNN's "iReport" page, the story was posted. As of late last night, the article had 45,232 views, 178 comments,( mostly people literally begging CNN and other media to cover it,) and a staggering 17 thousand shares. This clearly is what we call "news worthy."

However, CNN has now deleted the story, claiming it was "flagged" for being "in violation" of iReport's policy. In violation of what? CNN's appeasement policies toward the vaccine industry?

From Jon Rappoport's blog:

CNN: the most trusted name in twisted information.

CNN headquarters are right down the street in Atlanta from the CDC, where the MMR vaccine data were cooked, stepped on, and buried.

I guess it's just too much trouble for a reporter or editor to hop in a cab and go over there and ask a few tough questions.

Well, there are really no questions to ask, are there? CNN and the CDC are the "already asked and answered" dancing twins, who can read each other's minds.

Vaccines? Never met one they didn't love. Adverse effects? Damage? Never heard of such a thing.

From Age of Autism:

The CDC's William Thompson, whistleblower to Brian Hooker on the MMR study and lead author on another on mercury in vaccines, has probably ruined more than a few of his colleagues' August vacations at Hilton Head.

More broadly, these "leaks" in the bulwark of conventional wisdom have been coming for a long time, and not just from people on the inside with information to share.

I'm talking about leaks like all the parents of children on the other side of the elevated-risk stats -- MMR shots at 12 months, illness, regression, autism.

Leaks like parents who saw it with other vaccines, at other times -- parents who were willing to share what happened to try to keep it from happening again.

Leaks like the original Verstraeten study at the CDC that found a high risk of autism for infants who got the most ethyl mercury by the first month of life, as opposed to the least.

Leaks like the CDC coverup of the soaring autism rate in Brick Township, N.J.

Leaks like all the evidence from low-and-no-vaccine populations with low-to-no autism. Leaks like the unwillingness of the public health authorities to even study the issue.

Leaks like the Hannah Poling case, which the government conceded was triggered by autism, but buried by obfuscation. Leaks like the Unanswered Questions study showing autism all over the place in unacknowledged vaccine "court" rulings.

Leaks like the SafeMinds parents identifying autism as a "novel form of mercury poisoning" more than a decade ago.

Leaks like the Merck scientists who came forward to say the company faked data to make its mumps vaccine look effective.

Leaks like the connection between the first cases of autism reported in the medical literature, in 1943, and the families' exposure to the new ethyl mercury vaccines and fungicides.

Leaks like the whole catastrophic half-a-millennium love affair between the medical industry and mercury, one that should have ended long before the autism tidal wave started carrying away America's children.

Leaks like the most obvious one of all -- the explosion of autism and the vaccine schedule at the same time Congress gave the nation's corrupt drug makers a free ride in court, a ride on the backs of America's vaccine-injured children and their stumbling families.

These leaks are becoming a flood, and the flood a tidal wave, just like the autism tidal wave, and the wave is washing away the whole wall of denial built by the same people who just about now are running out of fingers and toes to plug them with.

butterfly and diamonds in my grass :)

Looking forward to Mystic Radio today !!!

I woke up full of energy even though i barely ate last few days and barely slept tonight, but I feel no tiredness. Thank you Wendy for the Reiki and thank anyone else that sent it, I'm bursting with energy.

And while thinking how good I feel, a beautiful coloured butterfly came and sat on my door knob outside, enjoying the sun and moving his beautiful wings up and down. And then I go in the other room and I look outside in my yard and the grass is full of morning dew sparkling in millions of colours in my grass. Few minutes I only watched the colours changing if I'm slightly moving left-right :))))) Like a crow I love everything that sparkles :)))

Wishing soul spa a gorgeous day too ! <3

I think this goes along with one of Bob's rants? When I saw my doctor a few days ago they asked me if I wanted a Tetanus shot (for general purpose I think) and a flu...I told her no and she said not today? and I said no never..lol! I am done with vaccines!

Coaching Yourself for Success

Coaching yourself for success

Finding a great coach can be so helpful in your pursuit for change and setting goals. Coaches hold you accountable and help you set realistic goals and actions plans. But, here are some things you can do on your own to get started.

#1. Are you willing and ready to change? People can’t be helped if they aren't ready or willing to commit. Be honest with yourself. Are you really ready to make a change and do the work to get there? Why are you ready? What is the motivation and desire behind your commitment to change?

#2. What is the change you want to make? Stick with one change or goal at a time. You don't want to become overwhelmed and procrastinate. It’s OK to start small. Remember, you're doing one change or goal at a time because your life is still on going. So, while your accomplishing your goal, you still need to raise a family, go to work, take care of your house, health, etc. When you know the change, write it down in detail. Journal writing helps make the goal real. Visualize the change. When we can see it, it brings clarity to our vision. What would the change look like? How would you feel? Would the change affect others? How would your life be different?

#3. Where are you in relation to this change? On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the ultimate place of accomplishment and change, where are you? For example, if you feel you’re only at a 3, what would you need to do, to get to a 4 or 5, which would make you closer to your goal? How would you feel? Every time you move up a step you’ll feel a little better. In this process, many people take small steps.

#4. Obstacles –When we take action towards our goals we must remind ourselves that we will have some obstacles. Some typical obstacles are: *Lack of support – not everyone in your life might agree or like the change you're making.

* Fear of success or failure will come up. Every time we step outside of our comfort zone, it causes us to feel uncomfortable which causes fear. Be aware of it but don't let it stop you.

* Realistic time management and goal setting – we can set goals, but we also have to look at our time and life pressures. If your life is really busy, you can set weekly or bi-weekly goals.

#5. When faced with obstacles and you feel like giving up, you can do this visualization exercise: What would my life look and feel like if I didn't accomplish my goal or make this change? What if I decided to live my next few years without the change or accomplishment of my goals?

#6. Support – It’s very important to have a support system. Whether it’s a friend or family member, or finding someone in your situation. For some support can mean a coach or therapist.

September and Fall are coming. Isn't it time to start your change?

Wake-up Call/ Is your stuff suffocating you?

Wake-up Call

Robin and I just completely moved out of our house in Port Angeles Washington to make it into a vacation rental. We’ll give you more details on that later.

We found that we had saved things in boxes and in little hiding places all over the house for years.

The following story came to us while we were in the middle of packing our stuff and cleaning out the house. It was a wake-up call for us, so I thought I’d share it with you.

A Connecticut woman was found dead in the basement of a home packed with clutter, her body buried beneath a first floor that collapsed under the weight of it all, police said.

Officers responded after a postman reported the mail was piling up, but they were not actually able to get into the house for a couple of days.
A neighbor, who described this lady as a "hoarder to the extreme who rarely left home”, said trash was packed from the floor to the ceiling inside the house.

“She saved newspapers, she saved every piece of paper,” a neighbor said. “I think she just kind of packed herself right into the house without realizing what she was doing.”

The structural damage to the first floor was so significant that emergency responders couldn't enter the home safely for days.

Once they were able to get inside, police found the body in the basement of the home she'd lived in for decades. She had apparently been living in the basement.

"They located her on the third day. “I guess she was in there for a pretty long time," a neighbor said.

The first floor had given way and the body was found buried in the rubble, according to neighbors.

Emergency crews had to tear open a wall and use an excavator to sift through all the trash, according to people in the neighborhood.
The small neighborhood is still in shock, but many said there wasn't much more that could have been done.

Neighbors said, "Nobody was going to force her out of her house no matter what you did," Their only hope is she didn't suffer in there."
The deceased’s remains were taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy. The cause of death was unknown, but police said there are no signs of foul play.

The home is considered a hazmat situation, according to police.
The Connecticut town is working with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to clean up the property and secure the scene. Authorities expect to demolish the home.

So the moral of the story is, be aware of what you are saving in all those boxes and hidden places in your home. You’ll find them when you move!


And that’s Bob’s Wake-Up call for today………..
