Being healthy is on everyone’s mind these days. We live in a world whereas we are surrounded by way more bad choices than good choices, which makes it difficult to stay on a healthy track. I know lots of people who contend that diet sodas are healthier options which are good for losing weight. Diet sodas (and diet food products in some cases) have made use of artificial sweeteners, such as Aspartame, in an effort to replace sugar and calories as a way to create the facade of a healthier option. But hasn’t it always sounded just a little too good to be true?

Technically, that’s because the reality is that it is too good to be true. And now one of the largest studies on the matter is further exposing the marketing as nothing short of fraudulent.

The study in reference is from The University of Iowa and it has issued a stern warning to anyone who might think Diet Soda is a healthy alternative.

Compared to women who never or only rarely consume diet drinks, those who consume two or more a day are 30 percent more likely to have a cardiovascular event [heart attack or stroke] and 50 percent more likely to die from related disease.

‘This is one of the largest studies on this topic, and our findings are consistent with some previous data, especially those linking diet drinks to the metabolic syndrome,’ says Dr. Ankur Vyas… the lead investigator of the study.

…The association persisted even after researchers adjusted the data to account for demographic characteristics and other cardiovascular risk factors, including body mass index, smoking, hormone therapy use, physical activity, energy intake, salt intake, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and sugar-sweetened beverage intake.

Diet soda is literally awful for you. There are no redeeming qualities. I don’t drink soda, but if I chose to drink it, I’d choose to drink regular versions of it rather than risk ingesting this chemical.

Here is more to ponder.

Aspartame is NOT safe.

How can a diet soda with 0 calories cause weight gain?

So then how do we convince people that this stuff is bad? I know, it sounds easy, but really it isn’t. Diet soda marketing is a well-crafted art that’s well adept at countering grass roots campaigns. Do you want your 15-year old daughter to stop drinking diet coke? Good luck convincing her because hey, Taylor Swift drinks it.

Sofia Vergara? She drinks Diet Pepsi.

The marketing in these matters is clean and precise, it promotes living a sexy and hip lifestyle. It appeals to young and old and all genders and demographics (Vergara is latina). It even appeals to a variety of body sizes (Vergara a rounder figure when compared to Swift). Clearly, I could list examples of athletes and songwriter / singers (Ray Charles is one of the largest diet soda celebrity promoters in history). And it isn’t just celebrities, diet soda marketing is also funny and even movingly passionate. Nothing trumps a diet soda commercial. So sure, it is easy to think “well people should just give it up because it is obvious,” but that’s more your perception and reality, which isn’t the same as the vast majority of people out there.

Anxiety is a feeling experienced by most of us at least once in our lives. It is characterized by excessive uneasiness, apprehension, and sometimes even panic attacks. (Source)

Anxiety disorders, which are much more severe than simple anxiety, are among the most common mental health problems in the United States. They affect 18% of the population and can be based on phobias, social setting stressors, and much more. (Source)

Some sufferers like to use healing crystals along with traditional therapy to help treat their anxiety. Many people believe that having these crystals around them really helps.

Crystals work on the premise that all the mental, physical, and spiritual ailments of the world are the product of negative energy. Healing crystals are believed to have the ability to remove this negative energy from a place or a person.

“In crystal healing, I work in partnership with them by placing them on or near the body in order to affect healing change. They do this by allowing the rate of their vibration to affect change in the rate of the spinning energy centers of the chakras, clearing out any negativity and allowing them to function at peak capacity. We need to be in balance to be in perfect health. Crystals work with us to restore that balance.” (Source)

If you are suffering from anxiety and would like to create a more positive atmosphere, these are the crystals for you!

shutterstock_2069049701. Blue Lace Agate

Blue lace agate looks exactly like its name would suggest. It is a beautiful blue stone with decorative lines of grey or lighter blue flowing through it. It resembles calm ocean waves.

This wonderful agate works to calm stressful or anxious situations and helps a person to counteract feelings that are suppressed due to past judgments or rejections. It is also excellent for those who are afraid to speak in public or share thoughts and ideas with strangers. (Source)

shutterstock_3536213212. Jet Stone

Jet stones are actually fossilized and metamorphosed driftwood. They are black in color, soft, and can take a very high polish. To the naked eye, it is difficult to tell that a jet stone was once actually wood. However, the transformation is visible under high magnification.

Jet stone is powerful and brings calming energy to those suffering from anxiety, depression, or grief. It is believed to calm fearful and anxious thinking along with delusions. And it is believed that they protect their wearers from negative energy while promoting purification. (Source)

shutterstock_2481814453. Shungite

Shungite is a dark, metallic-looking stone that, over time, has been used in Russia for water purification. Shungite is also believed to aid with bodily detoxification and purification.

It is these purifying and detoxifying properties that are believed to help a person clear his or her body of dysfunctional patterns. These patterns can manifest as emotional difficulties or constant negativity. By keeping the body opened and aligned with the light, this stone helps those with stress, anxiety, insomnia, and low energy levels. (Source)

shutterstock_2681414394. Hematite

Worn as a grounding bracelet, hematite is fantastic for removing stress and anxiety from the body, because it has excellent grounding properties, and will ground a person to Earth’s natural frequency.

When a person is properly grounded, he or she can be rejuvenated. It is also common to feel more free, relaxed, and balanced. These feelings combat anxiety at the root of the problem. (Source)

These are just four of the many crystals available to help reduce anxiety.

Abraham Hicks 2015

Abraham is a name. A symbol. A feeling. Evocative-yet simple-like we want our names to be.

But who, or what, is/are, Abraham . . . really?

Workshop attendee: “. . . you’re a very attractive woman, too.”
Abraham: “We’re usually a nebulous mist, so that is quite a compliment.” (Laughter)
Louise Hay calls them “some of the best teachers on the planet today.”

To Dr. Wayne Dyer they are “the great Masters of the Universe!”

A veritable who’s-who of authors, speakers and teachers continue to publicly acknowledge and praise the immense value of the wisdom that is pouring forth through Esther.

Abraham has described themselves as “a group consciousness from the non-physical dimension” (which helps a lot!). They have also said, “We are that which you are. You are the leading edge of that which we are. We are that which is at the heart of all religions.”

Abraham has told us through Esther that whenever we feel moments of great love, exhilaration, pure joy, stoned-out bliss, even the energy of sexual orgasm when we feel that Energy Flow rushing through our bodies, that is the energy of Source, and that is who Abraham “is”.

“Jerry and Esther never used the word channeling,” Abraham reflects. “It is used when applied to them, but they have never used it, because it means many things of which they are not, you see.”

“You could leave the channeling out of it. Call it inspiration; that’s all it is. You don’t call the basketball player a channeler, but he is; he’s an extension of Source Energy. You don’t call the surgeon a channeler, but he is. You don’t call the musician, the magnificent master musician, you don’t call him a channeler, but he is. He’s channeling the broader essence of who he is into the specifics of what he is about.”

Esther herself calls Abraham “infinite intelligence,” and to Jerry they are “the purest form of love I’ve ever experienced.”

We say check out Abraham for yourself. It’s the only way to go and the only way to know. If watching or listening or reading the words of Abraham feels good to you, then you’re in the right place. If they sound “off” to you, or maybe even a little bit annoying—adventure on!

And finally—from Jerry—”Mr. Practical”:

“I don’t know what they are and I don’t care what they are. I’m just using them for the good it will do for myself and others.”

And sometimes—all is said with just one word.

Abraham. They just are what they are.

When it comes to herbal remedies, many of us are familiar with the benefits of Echinacea or purple cone flower as an antibiotic, willow bark as a pain killer and aloe as a topical anesthetic and treatment for skin conditions. But that’s common knowledge compared to the insights and treatments that Native American medicine men discovered and used.
Native American medicine men developed a wheel very similar to the yin/yang of Asian medicine. The use of herbal remedies and other alternative forms of treatment was the cutting-edge medicine of their day. This was a holistic approach to medical treatment that relied heavily on plants and their unique benefits.

What follows is list of indigenous plants, trees, fruits and flowers unique to North America that have surprising benefits as defined by Native American tribes. If and when times are tough, it might be good to keep some of these ancient cures in mind. They also are good for everyday needs when you consider how effective some of them can be.
Licorice tea for a sore throat is a good example. It’s also interesting that many of these natural cures are still in use today, including beeswax and bee pollen, chamomile and others. It’s a good demonstration of the benefit of wisdom developed over centuries.
It’s hard to know how Native Americans determined which plants might have medicinal properties, although trial and error was probably one approach. It’s also thought that they observed sick animals eating certain plants and determined that those plants must have a certain property worth exploring. Since that time,scientific studies have verified the medicinal value of many plants. In fact, common aspirin is derived from salicin, a chemical in the inner bark of willow trees that was used in ancient times for fever and pain.
These medicines were usually administered via teas or pastes that were either ingested or applied externally. Sometimes the plants were eaten as food or added to food or water. On occasion, a salve or poultice was applied to open wounds. I would strongly recommend that you avoid the latter, given the risk of infection from wild sources.
I’ve omitted many of the natural remedies. There was a use for mistletoe that I came across, but mistletoe is essentially poisonous and if not used properly the results could be counter-productive, if not deadly.
I’ve also found a great deal of redundancy. It seems like everything is good for a cough or diarrhea. Rather than endlessly list plants that cure the same conditions over and over, I’ve tried to isolate this grouping to the most prevalent plants that you may find and recognize. As always, if you are pregnant, check with your doctor and do plenty of research before using any of these.
Here’s the list:
1. Alfalfa: Relieves digestion and is used to aid blood clotting. Contemporary uses included treatment of arthritis, bladder and kidney conditions and bone strength. Enhances the immune system.
2. Aloe: A cactus-like plant. The thick leaves can be squeezed to extrude a thick sap that can be used to treat burns, insect bites and wounds.
3. Aspen: The inner bark or xylem is used in a tea to treat fever, coughs and pain. It contains salicin, which also is found in willow trees and is the foundation ingredient for aspirin.
4. Bee pollen: When mixed with food it can boost energy, aid digestion and enhance the immune system. If you’re allergic to bee stings you will most likely be allergic to bee pollen.
5. Beeswax: Used as a salve for burns and insect bites, including bee stings. Intended to only be used externally.
6. Blackberry: The root, bark and leaves when crushed and infused in a tea are used to treat diarrhea, reduce inflammation and stimulate the metabolism. As a gargle it treats sore throats, mouth ulcers and inflammation of the gums.
7. Black Raspberry: The roots of this plant are crushed and used as a tea or boiled and chewed to relieve coughs, diarrhea and general intestinal distress.
8. Buckwheat: The seeds are used in soups and as porridge to lower blood pressure, help with blood clotting and relieve diarrhea.
9. Cayenne: The pods are used as a pain reliever when taken with food or drunk in a tea. Also used to threat arthritis and digestive distress. It is sometimes applied to wounds as a powder to increase blood flow and act as an antiseptic and anesthetic to numb the pain.
10. Chamomile: The leaves and flowers are used as a tea to treat intestinal problems and nausea.
11. Chokecherry: Considered by Native American tribes as an all-purpose medicinal treatment, the berries were pitted, dried and crushed into a tea or a poultice to treat a variety of ailments. These include coughs, colds, flu, nausea, inflammation and diarrhea. As a salve or poultice it is used to treat burns and wounds. The pit of the chokecherry – much like apple seeds – are poisonous in high concentrations. Be sure to pit the cherries if you’re considering this for any use.
12. Echinacea: Also known as purple coneflower, this is a classic Native American medicine that is used to strengthen the immune system, fight infections and fever. It also is used as an antiseptic and general treatment for colds, coughs and flu.
13. Eucalyptus: The oil from the leaves and roots is a common treatment when infused in a tea to treat coughs, sore-throat, flu and fever. It’s used to this day as an ingredient in cough drops.
14. Fennel: A plant with a licorice flavor, this is used in a tea or chewed to relieve coughs, sore-throat, aid digestion, offer relief to diarrhea and was a general treatment for colds. It also is used as a poultice for eye relief and headaches.
15. Feverfew: Used to this day as a natural relief for fever and headaches – including severe headaches like migraines – it also can be used for digestive problems, asthma and muscle and joint pains.
16. Feverwort: Another fever remedy that also is used for general pain, itching and joint stiffness. It can be ingested as a tea or chewed, or crushed to a paste as a salve or poultice.
17. Ginger root: Another super plant in Native American medicine, the root was crushed and consumed with food, as a tea or a salve or poultice. Known to this day for its ability to aid digestive health, it also is anti-inflammatory, aids circulation and can relieve colds, coughs and flu, in addition to bronchitis and joint pain.
18. Ginseng: This is another contemporary herb that has a history that goes back across cultures for millennia. The roots were used by Native Americans as a food additive, a tea and a poultice to treat fatigue, boost energy, enhance the immune system and help with overall liver and lung function. The leaves and stems also were used, but the root has the most concentration of active ingredients.
19. Goldenrod: Commonly thought of today as a source of allergies and sneezing, it was actually considered another all-in-one medicine by Native Americans. As a tea, an addition to food and a topical salve, it is used to treat conditions from bronchitis and chest congestion to colds, flu, inflammation, sore throats and as an antiseptic for cuts and abrasions.
20. Honeysuckle: The berries, stems, flowers and leaves are used to topically treat bee stings and skin infections. As a tea, it is used to treat colds, headaches and sore throat. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.
21. Hops: As a tea it is used to treat digestive problems and often mixed with other herbs or plants, such as aloe, to soothe muscles. It also is used to soothe toothaches and sore throat.
22. Licorice: Roots and leaves can be used for coughs, colds, sore throats. The root also can be chewed to relieve toothaches.
23. Mullein: As an infusion in tea or added to a salad or other food, this is a plant that has been used by Native Americans to treat inflammation, coughs and congestion and general lung afflictions. It is quite common and you probably have it growing in your backyard or somewhere close.
24. Passion flower: The leaves and roots are used to make a tea to treat anxiety and muscle pain. A poultice for injuries to the skin such as burns, insect bites and boils also can be made from passion flower.
25. Red clover: It grows everywhere and the flowers, leaves and roots are usually infused in a tea or are used to top food. It is used to manage inflammation, improve circulation and treat respiratory conditions.
26. Rose hip: This is the red to orange berry that is the fruit of wild roses. It is already known to be a massive source of vitamin C and when eaten whole, crushed into a tea or added to food it is used to treat colds and coughs, intestinal distress, as an antiseptic and to treat inflammation.
27. Rosemary: A member of the pine family and used in food and as a tea to treat muscle pain, improve circulation and as a general cleanser for the metabolism.
28. Sage: A far-reaching shrub across much of North America, it is a natural insect repellent and can be used for the standard list of digestive disorders, colds and sore throat.
29. Spearmint: Used consistently by Native American tribes for treatment of coughs, colds, respiratory distress and as a cure for diarrhea and a stimulant for blood circulation.
30. Valerian: The root as an infusion in a tea relieves muscle aches, pain and is said to have a calming effect.
31. White Pine: Ubiquitous and the needles and the inner bark can be infused in a tea. Used as a standard treatment for respiratory distress and chest congestion.
If you’re an expert on Native American cures I’m sure you can add many to this list. There are some excellent books on nature’s cures and the specific medicinal properties that Native American tribes discovered. Natural remedies are worth considering both from an historical and potentially practical point-of-view. Just make sure you identify them properly and check with your physician before using.

Drones Over Dolphin Stampede and Whales off Dana Point and Maui

Dolphin Safari

Published on Feb 25, 2014

See all of Capt. Dave’s incredible drone videos: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

Captain Dave Anderson of Capt. Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, California, at great personal risk, has recently filmed and edited a 5-minute video that contains some of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping, footage ever taken with a drone from the air of a huge mega-pod of thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California, three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California, and heartwarming close-ups hovering over a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom as an escort whale stands guard nearby, filmed recently in Maui.

According to N.O.A.A. Southern California has the greatest density of dolphins in the world. We have pods up to 10,000 strong stretched out for miles like the wildebeests of Africa. Over 400,000 common dolphin alone. We also have the largest concentration of blue whales on earth.

Capt. Dave explains, “This is the most beautiful and compelling five minute video I have ever put together. I learned so much about these whales and dolphins from this drone footage that it feels like I have entered a new dimension! I have not been this excited about a new technology since we built our underwater viewing pods on our whale watching boat. Drones are going to change how we view the animal world. Wow!”

Capt. Dave had to film this off a small inflatable boat, launching and catching the quadcopter drone by hand where a miss could mean injury to him from the four propeller blades or loss of the drone. He actually lost one drone on takeoff when it nicked his small VHF radio antenna on the 14 foot rigid inflatable he was filming from and it went into the water. Alone six miles offshore Capt. Dave , without thinking , dove into the cold, late-January waters off Dana Point to retrieve the valuable footage taken on a flight a half hour earlier that morning. “I had my hat and glasses on, I was fully clothed with long-johns on to keep warm and my cell phone and wallet in my pocket,” Captain Dave explained. “It was a stupid move, but the copter started sinking so fast it was my only hope to get the amazing footage I had just shot”. Since then he has attached flotation to the skids, which would save the footage, but every flight over the water still risks the DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter with a small GoPro HERO3 Black camera on it, as the $1,700 rig is not waterproof and the skids will not keep it upright on the ocean.

“I get so nervous every flight over the water now, after the accident, my hands start shaking,” explains Capt. Dave. “My wife says no more drones if I lose this one. But she said that before I lost the other one. Now that she’s seen what it can do, I think she’s just as hooked as I am”.

“This technology, that offers such steady footage from the air for such a low price and is so easy to fly, is new. This was a ten or twenty thousand dollar copter a few years ago and flying those took a great deal of skill. I can’t wait to see what footage this year will bring with this drone, getting a different perspective on the amazing sightings we already have off Dana Point. There is debate in many states right now about making use of these drones illegal. People are justifiably concerned about invasion of privacy. But it would be a shame to have this new window into a whale’s world taken away.”

Entanglement in fishing gear takes the lives of nearly 1,000 dolphins and whales ever day around the world. Captain Dave formed Orange County’s first whale disentanglement group in 2008 and has been involved in disentangling several whales, including a gray whale named Lily, whose disentanglement in Dana Point Harbor made national headlines. He authored the award-winning book, “Lily, A Gray Whale’s Odyssey”, which won eight awards in 2013.

Special Note From Captain Dave:

Attention any would be whale videographers: please only attempt this if you are extremely familiar with whale behavior as it is illegal to do anything that causes the whales to change their normal behavior with big fines- and the authorities do watch YouTube. Different areas have different laws on approaching whales. I am a whale watch captain with nearly 20 years of experience. All laws were obeyed by us during filming. In Maui we sat watching whales from a distance for hours before they moved closer to us. You can never approach them there closer than 100 yards. The Mom and calf as you can see in the film were completely undisturbed by the small drone. NOAA is currently reviewing drones and may create laws or guidelines for using them around whales.

FEBRUARY 11, 2016

Deutsche Bank bosses face a formidable task to drag its shares off a 30-year low, with reassurances about its capital levels doing little to improve investor confidence and few other options on the table to trigger a recovery.

Germany’s flagship lender has trailed its rivals in bouncing back from the 2008 financial crisis, hamstrung by having to pay out billions of dollars in fines to end a string of legal disputes and ageing technical infrastructure.

It is the last of the major European banks to embark on a painful restructuring of its bloated investment bank, in the face of tougher regulation that reduced profitability, and the cost of that overhaul contributed to it posting its biggest annual loss on record last month.

Deutsche Bank’s shares have fallen around 40 per cent since the start of the year, leading a slump across the European banking sector – with a relief rally on Tuesday after the bank said it had reserves to pay coupons on its riskiest type of debt extinguished and erased by the afternoon.

Deutsche Bank share price, now below 2008 GFC levels.

Deutsche Bank share price, now below 2008 GFC levels.

Shareholders are worried about the ability of management to execute a two-year turnaround plan, announced last October, against the backdrop of a deteriorating global economic outlook and negative interest rates.

“Investors have completely lost their faith in the bank,” a top 10 shareholder told Reuters, adding that a fast recovery in the share price was unlikely given the magnitude of the problems weighing on the company.

Several investors told Reuters they feared Deutsche would need to tap markets for more capital – despite raising a total of nearly 20 billion euros ($32 billion) from investors in 2010 and 2014 – to deal with regulatory and legal issues.

“We believe that Deutsche Bank has a capital shortfall of up to 7 billion euros, depending on the outcome of a range of litigation issues, which could necessitate a highly dilutive capital increase,” Citi analysts wrote in a note last week.

Deutsche Bank declined to comment on its capital position when contacted by Reuters. But the bank’s co-Chief Executive John Cryan wrote to employees on Tuesday, telling them they could reassure clients the bank’s capital position was “absolutely rock solid”.

“The market also expressed some concern about the adequacy of our legal provisions but I don’t share that concern. We will almost certainly have to add to our legal provisions this year but this is already accounted for in our financial plan,” he added.

But several investors said they felt time was running out for the bank to show successes – such as returning to profit or stabilising its share price – after other large lenders had moved on and closed the chapter of financial crisis.

‘No benefit of the doubt’

“There’s no benefit of the doubt,” another top 10 investor said, adding currently investors were voting with their feet. “Two years (as planned by Cryan for the revamp) is a long time. There’s no margin for error.”

Questions are also being raised about the quality of the bank’s supervisory board.

“We miss competence in financials on the supervisory board,” said the first top 10 shareholder, adding that support for Chairman Paul Achleitner was also waning and a new face was needed for a fresh start for the bank.

“However, at this stage, there’s no obvious candidate to succeed him, so he will likely be kept in charge until the end of his mandate in May 2017,” the shareholder said.

Deutsche declined to comment on Achleitner’s position or about investor concerns about the board.

A share price slide of this magnitude – Deutsche’s market value has roughly halved from a year ago to around 19 billion euros  – would normally trigger speculation that it could become a takeover target.

But Cryan recently met members German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government, and sources close to the ruling coalition said that while the government has no direct means to deter potential suitors, Deutsche Bank enjoyed some protection as it is regarded by many Germans as a part of the national identity.

“The government would intervene in case someone launched a takeover,” said a source close to the government.

He added that any suitors would be advised to seek government approval for a potential takeover of Deutsche Bank to avoid the risk of working against the will of the political establishment.

“We do not worry too much about a possible takeover of Deutsche Bank,” Cryan said at the bank’s annual press conference in late January, adding that regulators would also likely frown at the combination of two large banks.

But this means its share price is set to be marooned at its current levels for some time, say analysts, piling the pressure on Cryan to show his plan to cut costs by trimming Deutsche’s investment bank and selling non-core assets will reap rewards.

“We think the stock will struggle to re-rate, despite being the cheapest globally systemic bank,” Morgan Stanley analyst Huw Van Steenis wrote after the bank posted its record loss.
