The Power of Unreasonable People

Book by John Elkington & Pamela Hartigan, Harvard Business School

“It is time to start investing in, partnering with, and learning from these world-shaping change agents. You will not only contribute to the social revolutions they’re fueling, but also position your organization to thrive in the new business landscape they are helping to define.”
Even the world' most blissful optimists cringe when they look at today's massive global challenges, including poverty, environmental pollution, terrorism and climate change. Cynics throw up their hands in disgust, retreat behind protective walls and gates, and pray they can somehow ride out the storm while the world cracks apart. In contrast, social entrepreneurs do not run away from trouble. They develop workable solutions to the world's most pressing problems. No one can escape the world's problems, so getAbstract recommends this inspiring book to those who would like to meet the few brave souls who are doing all they can to develop imaginative solutions to the challenges everyone shares.

Solar cooking will save over 2,000,000 lives a year in developing countries.


When people ask me what I do: I say;
I am part of a team of social entrepreneurs – which means we use a business model to solve a major social problem. Our vision is to take a nutrient dense technology, which we have, and provide it to 100,000 children all over the world this year. I’m building a team of people who want to join me to help champion the cause of malnutrition while building a substantial income.” http://www.givingchangeseverything.com

About the Commandments
The Exodus out of Egypt took place in 1446 B.C., God led them to Mt. Sinai and gave Moses the Ten Commandments. The Bible is God’s book. God directed holy men to write down His words ― with the exception of the Ten Commandments. God called special attention to the Ten Commandments by writing them Himself "two tables of stone written with the finger of God." Deut. 8:10 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+8-10&version=NIV
The Lord Jesus Christ asked, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Mark 8:36 Reasonable people understand that at death they will face God in judgment. We will go to either Heaven or Hell. The Bible says, “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27 http://covenanttable.com/sermons.html
The Ten Commandments holds the key to understanding God’s plan of salvation. The Bible declares that “God is righteous in all works and holy in all his ways.” Ps 145:17 The Ten Commandments reveal how unlike God we are. Our “heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: Who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 The Ten Commandments acts as a mirror so that we might see our sinful hearts and cause us to cry out like the Publican: “God be merciful to me a sinner.” Luke 18:13
God the Holy Spirit uses the Commandments to convict us of sin: our adulteries, murders, thefts, jealousies, lyings, dishonoring of parents, blasphemies…. God’s law shows us clearly that in and of ourselves we not good enough to merit Heaven. “All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way…” Is. 53:6 Honest men, when they examine their heart and life by God’s law, know that they will be found guilty in the Dayof Judgment.
But God in His great kindness has provided a way of escape. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16 “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins -- the Just for the unjust that he might bring us to God.” I Peter 3:18
Jesus Christ came into this world to take our place and pay the price of our sins. At Creation, even before Adam and Eve sinned, God declared that the penalty for sin was death. Jesus paid that debt. When He was unjustly condemned by wicked men, and nailed to a cross on Calvary, He was shedding His blood to pay the price of death for our sins. His death, burial and resurrection make it possible for God to pardon our sins eternally and spare us from an eternity in Hell.
“Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins. And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” Acts 13:38-39 The law of Moses reveals but can never take away sin. Only Jesus’ death can take away sin. He is our hope; He is our Savior. “The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” I John 1:7 www.covenanttable.com/sermons.html
Salvation cannot be earned by good works; it “is a gift of God, not of works.” Ephesians 2:8-9. In John 3:18 God makes our choices clear, “He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
From Acts 20:21, two issues must be resolved in order for us to go to Heaven: “repentance towards God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” True repentance is a hatred for the sinful life we have led and a sincere desire to turn and live for God.
Right now, if you would believe on the Lord Jesus Christ — from your heart — quietly, humbly and as a little child settle the matter: “Lord, I commit myself wholly to You. I want to be among those that willingly submit to Your authority. Be merciful to me a sinner. I repent of the sinful life I have led. I want to put my faith in your Son, Jesus Christ. I believe that He died in my place so that my sins could be forgiven. Amen.”
In Deuteronomy 11:18-21, God promises that our days and the days of our children would be "as the days of heaven upon the earth" if we, as parents, would do these three things.
1.​Learn and follow the Ten Commandments ourselves.
2.​Teach them to our children daily
3.​Display a copy of the Ten Commandments in our home "write them upon the door posts of thine house."
As parents, we need to talk to our children and explain, "The Ten Commandments are the laws that govern this home. As your parents, we are to obey them; you are to obey them. In other words, God is the Head of our home.”

How Dog Food Affects Dog Seizures (Canine Epilepsy)

This entry was written by Gary Tashjian, posted on October 22, 2010

I recently found myself Googling “dog seizures” and visiting the websites on Google’s first page to see what may be new. I was surprised, and also delighted, to see that practically everyone is now talking about the connection between feeding commercial dog food and dog seizures. Truth has a way of floating to the top eventually, even if it takes generations. I think that what has made the difference in seeing so many articles along these lines is because access to the internet has allowed those of us who have found our own solutions to conquering canine epilepsy to share our stories with thousands of people; whereas before, all we could do was tell our friends, family and neighbors if we stumbled onto something good.

There is no question that changing our dog Cory over to a raw, all natural meat on the bone diet was the reason that his seizures stopped. But even so, I still wonder why that is. Is there something in the make up of a dog that has a low seizure threshold and causes the dog’s system to react negatively to the grains, such as wheat, corn or soy in commercial dog food, so as to cause an allergic reaction resulting in seizures?

Or could it be that the culprits are actually minerals called phytates that are common in commercial dog food? They are said to block absorption of important nutrients, so that the dog’s central nervous system is starved of those nutrients and rendered unable to function properly, thereby resulting in dog seizures. Or is it that essential vitamins and minerals necessary to support the dog’s well-being so that it doesn’t fall below the seizure threshold get cooked out of processed commercial dog food, even if you choose a high quality one?

Whatever you believe, (and I met with a veterinarian last week who expressed his own opinion that favored the “your dog must be allergic to something in the kibble” option), I don’t understand why people don’t simply start with a change of diet for their dogs if they are having seizures. What could it possibly hurt?

Why do some people reach for anti-epileptic medication first? Or, worse yet, why would people throw away money to buy a product from a website that boasts that you, too, can join millions of other pet owners who have reported success by buying their product, which is of course an all natural blend of herbs, vitamins and anything else that sounds impressive, and is marketed under reassuring names such as EPILEPSY X or some such, while continuing to feed commercial dog food to their dogs? I mean, if there is something in commercial dog food that inhibits absorption of the necessary nutrients, what good will it do to feed any supplements, no matter how wonderful they may be?

I know that not all dogs will be completely cured of canine epilepsy simply by a change of diet to either a home-cooked or a natural raw diet; and many dogs’ lives will be saved by anti-epileptic drugs. These are decisions that must be made on a case-by-case basis by a loving dog owner and a trusted veterinarian who does not have any other agenda, such as commercial dog food to sell. The point of this article is to ask anyone who is seeking answers that could help restore their dog’s health by reducing or eliminating seizures to stop feeding kibble or canned commercial dog food. The only commercial pet food I would choose is one that is based upon the raw meaty bone diet, which is free-range and organic, such as Darwin’s Natural Selections with free-range meat and organic vegetables.

It took 5 years from the time I started feeding Cory the raw meaty bone diet until his last seizure, so be aware it doesn’t happen overnight. But his seizures did become less and less frequent over that 5 year span, until they stopped completely; that was now over 5 years ago.

I wish all of you who are struggling with the pain of dealing with canine epilepsy comfort and support in your own journey to find answers that will work for you. Cory and I hope our experience can help you fit together some of the pieces to the overall puzzle of reducing or even curing your dog’s seizures.

Sandra DeMers is the author of Cory’s Story, the true story of how one dog conquered canine epilepsy that will absolutely amaze you. Visit her website at www.corysstory.com for a wealth of information on dog seizures and to learn Sandra’s secret to good canine health. Hint: raw dog food played a crucial role in Cory’s recovery.

Caffeine a drug, YES.

If you want to increase the odds of not having a stroke or missing that severe nervous tension headache that increasingly plagues you because of the stress at work, or trying to figure out how to make your paycheck stretch from one payday to the next, drink coffee. Not decaf. High octane, fully caffeinated coffee. For years the medical community has known the curative affect of caffeine, but because the social progressive do-gooders in our society today have decided that caffeine is bad for you, they have lobbied against..

Potassium Iodide because of Japan fallout

Dear friends and family - With the recent events in Japan it doesn't look good. The greatest risk at this point are for those that are on the west coast. It is important that you ensure that you are taking iodine to counteract the fallout. Many from Chernobyl experienced thyroid cancer after the nuclear reactor meltdown there. As a survivor or thyroid cancer I can assure you that this is one thing you will not want to deal with. I will be increasing my children's dosages (8 yrs and 11 years) to 25 mgs / day of Iodoral. Make sure that you are also getting Vit C, Magnesium and Selenium and GlycoNutritionals as part of a holistic protective protocol. More to come as scientific data is released on the impact / risk factors. At this point we don't know.

Please spread the information to your friends and family who may be effected by this.

With the terrible earthquake in Japan, let’s send thoughts, prayers as well as assistance to the Japanese.

As the Japanese nuclear reactors release radiation into the air, the jet streams will push this radiation to the Western U.S. and Canada. There are estimates that the radiation fallout will reach the Western side of N. American in six to ten days. Furthermore, It is expected that 750 RADS may contaminate these areas. How much is 750 RADS? One chest x-ray is approximately 3/100 RADS. One CT scan is 1 RAD.

Folks, potentially this is a lot of radiation. Fortunately, we have an item that can prevent this fallout from damaging us: iodine. If there is enough inorganic, non-radioactive iodine in our bodies, the radioactive fallout has nowhere to bind in our bodies. IT will pass through, unharmed.

It is important to ensure that we have adequate iodine levels BEFORE this fallout hits. How much iodine is recommended?

The CDC recommends using iodine to prevent injury form radioactive iodine fallout. Adults and women who are breastfeeding should take 130mg of potassium iodide. Children who are between 3 and 18 years of age should take 65mg of potassium iodide. Children who are adult size should take the adult dose. Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years of age should take 32mg of potassium iodide. Newborns from birth to one month of age should be given 16mg of potassium iodide.www.EuroPharmaUSA.com

When should you take iodine? For an acute exposure, you want to take iodine just before the exposure hits. Iodine is cleared out of the body within 24 to 72 hours after taking it. However, If you have been using ortho-iodosupplementation as I describe in my books and lectures (taking from 6-50mg/day of iodine and iodide), you should be covered. Remember, the goal is to not let the radioactive iodine bind in the body.

Potassium iodide can be found in many health food stores. Combinations of iodine/iodine can be obtained from holistic physicians. Iodoral, Iodozyme HP, and Lugol’s solution are examples of this form of iodine. For long-term treatment, combinations are much more effective. More information about this can be found in my book, Iodine Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It, 4th Edition (available at www.drbrownstein.com).

I do not recommend starting the first dose of iodine right now. It is important to follow the news reports and www.drbrownstein.com. I would suggest starting iodine supplements within one to two days of the expected fallout. If the fallout is expected to continue, you may need to take more than one dose. I will keep you updated as I find out more information. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faYG7OKr-XI

Citizens For Health The Voice of the Natural Health Consumer

Go to this web and help us keep our health freedom.
http://www.citizens.org/?cat=4 and take a look at

By now you've probably heard the news that the Corn Refiners Association has petitioned the FDA to change the name for high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) to "corn sugar". They claim their petition is in the interest of "consumer clarity".

We at Citizens for Health have an important question regarding this claim: How can changing the name of a product consumers have become familiar with over nearly three decades actually lead to greater clarity?

Oppose the petition renaming high fructose corn syrup NOW!

Make no mistake - this is about the Corn Refiners bottom line. The more aware and informed consumers become about the dangers of HFCS, the more they will seek alternatives or avoid products containing HFCS altogether. This is already happening, and the Corn Refiners are feeling the pinch. Their petition is an effort to confuse consumers into buying products they are working diligently to avoid.

Citizens for Health has advocated for access to truthful, non-misleading health information for nearly 20 years, and renaming HFCS is precisely the kind of manipulation that we strive to prevent - but we need your help.

What you can do:

Most important: Post a comment opposing the Corn Refiners' petition by visiting regulations.gov. Near the bottom of the page you'll see "Corn Refiners Association - Citizen Petition". Click on the link to the right: "Submit a Comment".
Use the links in this email to send a message to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and Dr. Margaret Hamburg, Commissioner of the FDA, urging them to reject the Corn Refiners' petition. (Please take a moment to edit the letter - a variety of messages have the broadest impact).

Vaccines; What CDC Documents and Science Reveal

The Center for Disease Control is an ardent promoter of vaccines. Yet, from its own research documents, we learn that vaccines are neither safe nor effective. The information contained in this DVD could spare adults from further vaccine-induced injuries and spare innocent children from a lifetime of mental, physical, and immunological limitations. http://www.realityzone.com/healnut.html

Shootings because of bad food & Dr's drugs

It’s been nearly two months since the nation's attention was focused on Tucson, where five were killed and 13, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords injured. During that same period, several other shootings were missed by the mainstream news. Violence seems to be erupting among youths everywhere, from Los Angeles to Omaha http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/06/us/06brfs-SCHOOLSHOOTI_BRF.html?_r=2&ref=schoolshootings to Brooklyn http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/16/nyregion/16shooting.html?_r=1&ref=schoolshootings - indicating something is seriously going wrong in the minds of young persons in this country.

Why Young Brains Are Unwell

The list of assailing particles on children is long, and starts with chemical exposure in the womb. In July, 2005, the Environmental Working Group released a hallmark study using cord blood to assess the chemical exposure of neonates in-utero. The placenta has long been thought to shield the developing baby from pollutants in the environment. The study's alarming results dispelled this as a wishful myth. Of the 287 chemicals identified in the umbilical cord blood of 10 infants, 180 were known carcinogens, 217 were toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 have been associated with birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests. The study concluded that, "the dangers of pre- or post-natal exposure to this complex mixture of carcinogens, developmental toxins and neurotoxins have never been studied." http://www.ewg.org/reports/bodyburden2/execsumm.php

Within hours of emerging from the womb, a newborn is given a dollop of antibiotics in the eyes, injected with the hepatitis b vaccine, with knonwn neurotoxic properties http://legaljustice4john.com/hepBhazzardsCites.htm and jabbed with a vitamin K shot, which contains 9 mg of benzyl alcohol. In 1992, Golding published concerns that vitamin K injections could be associated with a doubled risk of malignant disease in children, particularly leukemia.

Starting around the 60th day of life, infants with still immature immune systems are subjected to a battery of vaccines: DTaP, HiB, polio, Prevnar, and a squirt of oral rotavirus vaccine, all generally given at the same time. The onslaught of these shots, including two additional injections of hepatitis b vaccine, repeats twice, every 60 days. This deposits approximately 66 different viral or bacterial antigens and measurable amounts of a dozen different chemicals into a six month old infant. By the time a child is five years old, a little 40 pound human will receive up to 35 injections, containing at least 110 different weakened pathogens (or pathogen particles), and an assortment of 59 different chemicals. If all approved shots are administered, the little tot will also be injected with stray viral DNA, four types of animal cells, cells from aborted fetal tissue and a bit of human albumin (a foreign protein.) By the way, all of these substances are listed on package inserts for each vaccine.

Subjective Labels for Brain Pathology

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, nearly 20 percent of American children and adolescents suffer from a mental disorder so significant, it interferes with their day-to-day life. http://www.webmd.com/anxiety-panic/mental-health-illness-in-children The plethora of diagnoses fall into a few fairly well defined categories: Conduct disorders, such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); learning disabilities, a spectrum of speech delay and comprehension issues; and mood disorders, which include depression, bipolar disorder and chronic anxiety.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) approximates that nearly 5.4 million children 4 to 17 years of age have been diagnosed with ADHD alone (2007 data). This represents nearly 1 in 10 of all children - and the number has been escalating. Between 2003 and 2007, the number of parent-reported children diagnosed with ADHD increased by 22 percent. http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/adhd/data.html Disturbingly, in an attempt to quell their out-of-control behavior, more than two thirds of these children have been placed on at least one prescription medication. Since the underlying cause for the sick brain and hyperkinetic behavior has not been identified and addressed, the drugging is akin to tightening down the lid on a boiling pot of water.

One of these behavioral disorders, called Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/918095-overview is said to manifest around 8 years of age. Mannerisms include: easily losing one's temper; aggressively arguing with adults and defying requests; refusing to follow rules; deliberately annoying other people; blaming others for one's own mistakes or misbehavior; and being touchy, easily annoyed or angered, resentful, spiteful, or vindictive. In 2008, ODD was the most common reason children were referred to mental health professionals for an assessment, accounting for at least half of all out patient visits to psychiatrists and psychiatric practitioners. These children, mostly boys, are commonly diagnosed and treated for several coexisting mental disorders.http://aacap.org/page.ww?name=Children%20with%20Oppositional%20Defiant%20Disorder§ion=Facts%20for%20Families For more information http://www.newswithviews.com/Tenpenny/sherri129.htm#_ftn3

Kids with High Blood Pressure 18% More Likely to Have Learning Difficulties

Nationwide, the childhood obesity rate has more than tripled in the last 30 years, and with its rise, childhood hypertension is climbing: As many as 4% of children have chronically high blood pressure. It’s been established that hypertensive children often experience problems contributing to academic and growth difficulties. Now, new research published in the journal Pediatrics reports that hypertension in children may increase the youths’ risk for learning disabilities.

University of Rochester researchers evaluated 201 children between the ages of 10 and 18. Based on blood pressure readings, 100 were diagnosed with high blood pressure while 101 were not. In addition, parents reported whether their child’s medical provider had diagnosed a learning disability or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Results: Children with hypertension were 18% more likely to have learning disabilities, whether or not they had an ADHD diagnosis. One possible reason: Brain imaging showed abnormal metabolic activity among hypertensive kids’ prefrontal cortex as compared to the same areas in children with normal blood pressure.

Here are a few tips to help keep your kids’ blood pressure under control:

Reduce salt intake. (U.S. kids typically consume two to three times the 1,300-1,500 mg needed daily)
Avoid caffeinated beverages.
Get more potassium from bananas, sweet potatoes and dried plums.
Choose vegetable sources of protein over red meat.
Increase physical activity.

Bonus: One study with mice found that pea protein lowered blood pressure by 20% after eight weeks.


Raising temperature in your home can cause obesity.

With the official start of spring still weeks away, chilly temperatures continue to dominate much of the country. While it’s tempting to crank up the heat, a bit of restraint not only reduces energy bills – it could help you lose weight.

An analysis from the University College London noted that Americans and Britons have been raising the temperature of their homes over the past several decades – correlating with the rise in obesity. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health decided to drill down on this correlation to examine just how temperature impacts calorie burning.


Diet Drinks Linked To Stroke Risk
