Medications Change Who We Are

They’ve been linked to road rage, pathological gambling, and complicated acts of fraud. Some make us less neurotic, and others may even shape our social relationships. It turns out many ordinary medications don’t just affect our bodies – they affect our brains. Why? And should there be warnings on packets?

Most people go to the doctor to get healed. But doctors only mask the synonyms with drugs while the body heals itself. Pain and discomfort are normal human warnings that something is not right. Best to obey the body signs rather than mask it.
Ironically, by this point the patient was so cantankerous that he flatly ignored the doctors’ advice. “He swore roundly, stormed out of the office and stopped taking the drug immediately,” she says. Two weeks later, he had his personality back.

Others have not been so lucky. Over the years, Golomb has collected reports from patients across the United States – tales of broken marriages, destroyed careers, and a surprising number of men who have come unnervingly close to murdering their wives. In almost every case, the symptoms began when they started taking statins, then promptly returned to normal when they stopped; one man repeated this cycle five times before he realised what was going on.

Colapse

The field of cliodynamics models how factors such as equality and demography correlate with political violence. Statistical analysis of previous societies suggests that this happens in cycles. As population increases, the supply of labour outstrips demand, workers become cheap and society becomes top-heavy. This inequality undermines collective solidarity and political turbulence follows.Assistance in our self-imposed ruin will not come from hostile neighbors, but from our own technological powers. Collapse, in our case, would be a progress trap.

Armed parishioners saved ‘untold number of lives.’ This law made it legal to have guns in church Too many complex laws preventing common sense end a thriving civilization What is happening in California is a complex problem of population, environment, poor leadership and over complex technology.

Not An Objective Democracy

House Votes to Impeach President Trump
Democrats and Republicans vote almost entirely along party lines; president denounces effort to remove him from office

In a court of law including a grand jury the jury members have to be impartial and base judgments on fact. In our government selective enforcement is a fact of life destroying the principles this country was founded on. This country had one civil war and might have another based on cultures that do not trust that individuals will be responsible for their own lives.

In the justice system imagine if all blacks voted one way and the whites the other way. It would be a mistrial.

National Debt and Consumption

A panel of climate scientists working for the United Nations are calling for a reduction of the earth’s population in order to stave off global warming.
In a study published Tuesday in the journal BioScience, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change urged global population control, claiming that major catastrophes are just around the corner if the earth’s inhabitants aren’t drastically reduced.

The problem with reducing population over time is a reduced economy. Reducing the economy means debts will never be paid including the government debt. Money will be worthless.

Government Grants.

Mississippi should be ashamed and embarrassed to get government grants. A proud state takes pride in not being a burden on other people. Most government grants come with strings attached like painting bike lanes or forced school busing. The one today that caused a problem is the warning sirens that blasted after 9 o’clock this morning. It has become the boy who cried wolf. I understand there needs to be tests like on the first Saturday each month at noon. But that never happens at the same time. Another problem is the county wide use when there is no need for the southern county to be warned of a northern county problem. This is a result of government grants and people not being responsible for their own community.

If Mississippi does not want the reputation of always being last we need to refuse grants and be proud that we can take care of our selves.

Noise

Noise can contribute to adverse health effects, including sleep disturbance, hearing loss, and decreased performance. Projects and policies can be designed and implemented to reduce noise related to airports and highways and to mitigate the health impacts of noise on nearby populations. Examples include constructing sound barriers around high- ways, using road surface materials that produce less noise, and changing airport runway use patterns, flight path locations, and hours of operation. Trains, buses, planes, and other machines exceed the normal sound human ears can stand. Prolonged exposure to noise damages the ears.

Found that the system significantly breaches the threshold of what is safe for our ears. To protect hearing, both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization recommend an average exposure limit of 70 decibels (dB) over the course of 24 hours. But what we measured exceeds that limit: Our samples show the average noise levels on all subway platforms and on all subway rides (inside subway trains) is between 72.5 and 76.5 dB and between 74.1 and 75.8 dB, respectively. And, with maximum readings actually as high as 119 dB on platforms and 120 dB on rides—based on actual recorded data within the sample—the NYC subway is likely an auditory minefield.

Black Market Drugs

Test THC cartridges and discovered a horrifying fact: all 18 cartridges contained myclobutanil which can transform into hydrogen cyanide when burned.

In addition, 13 of the cartridges tested by CannaSafe contained the solvent Vitamin E, which can trigger severe lung damage when it is inhaled.

Poorly Educated City Leaders

The city of Portland is stuck paying $350 million more than it had planned for a new water filtration plant — all because the bureau that presented the project plan forgot to include any pipes to carry the water into and out of the system.

This sounds like Tupelo leaders. Always voting to spend money but finding out the bids are way short of what they expected the finished product to be. It seems the only expertise the people on the ballot have is being elected.

Portland’s Water Bureau presented the city council with a plan in 2017 for a water treatment plant that, they said, would cost $500 million. The Portland City Council approved the project.The plant would actually cost more than they had stated. A lot more — 70 percent more, in fact. The actual cost, not including any delays or setbacks or other items that seem to invariably increase the cost of government projects, the plant would now cost $850 million. Out of the additional $350, $200 million would be to include the pipes.Since city governments are funded by taxpayer dollars, this extra charge would lead to an increase in water and sewer bills for Portland’s residents, causing them to rise an additional $131 per year.

If you want great Government get educated and do write in votes for the best people rather than following the propaganda.

Electric Cars Add to Climate Change

Climate change: Electrical industry’s ‘dirty secret’ boosts warming.Sulphur hexafluoride, or SF6, is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents But leaks of the little-known gas were the equivalent of putting an extra 1.3 million cars on the road.It is widely used across the industry, from large power stations to wind turbines to electrical sub-stations in towns and cities. It prevents electrical accidents and fires. Solar and wind are not waste free. What to do with the old equipment such as turbine blades? However, the significant downside to using the gas is that it has the highest global warming potential of any known substance. It is 23,500 times more warming than carbon dioxide (CO2).A study from the University of Cardiff found that across all transmission and distribution networks, the amount used was increasing by 30-40 tonnes per year.This rise was also reflected across Europe with total emissions from the 28 member states in 2017 equivalent to 6.73 million tonnes of CO2. That’s the same as the emissions from 1.3 million extra cars on the road for a year.

Then we have air travel which is increasing the amount of CO2 each year. Fact is there is no use of energy that is clean and as populations increase so does energy use. The solution is not in the marketing of making more “stuff” but decreasing consumers.

Create a New Life

THE SUICIDE RATE IN THE U.S. HAS HIT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN 50 YEARS, AND THERE IS CONCERN THAT IT WILL GO MUCH HIGHER
Life is an absolutely incredible gift, and don’t let anyone ever convince you that you should end it.

More laws and control over individuals does not give individuals the freedom to live their own values. Marketing has created a culture where people are worried about what other people think. Fact is you have control of how you feel not the minds of other people or groups.
