This Could Be the Biggest Threat to Your Relationship

It’s often referred to as ‘the invisibleaddiction’ because it flies under the radar. Unlike alcoholism, drug addiction, orhoarding, this addiction is not only almost impossible for an outsider to recognize, but it’s viewed by most of the population as being valuable, even, worthy of admiration.

Insight – ALVIN LAW DOES IT ALL – SAUCE THAT’S THE FABRIC OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS – 08.25.16

I typically attempt to write a snappy blurb that’ll make you want to immediately hit the play button though I have completely failed since there’s little I can write that’ll remotely come close to encapsulating the life and conversation I was fortunate to have had today with undaunted Alvin Law.  Listen and you’ll concur!  Tomatoes are beautiful, scrumptious and life …

Robert Parry – The Danger of Excessive Trump Bashing

The widespread disdain for Donald Trump and the fear of what his presidency might mean have led to an abandonment of any sense of objectivity by many Trump opponents and, most notably, the mainstream U.S. news media. If Trump is for something, it must be bad and must be transformed into one more club to use for hobbling his candidacy. …

Neal Gabler – Why Hating the Media Could Make the Difference in November

As the political pundits keep reminding us, this might be called the “hate” election.

William K. Black – Wall Street’s Message to Young Adults: ‘You Are Clueless’

Wall Street CEOs are very upset with young adults. They believe you are “clueless” and “voting against [your] own interests” when you support Bernie Sanders. A Wall Street CEO took to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to decry the fact that, “Millennials are flocking to Sanders.” It would be cruel to note that one has to be clueless to believe …

Progressive Commentary Hour – 01.19.16 (PART 2)

Prof. Peter Duesberg is professor of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley. He was the first to isolate a cancer gene through his work with retroviruses back in 1970 and mapped the genetic structure of this class of viruses. His work in retrovirus research awarded him an election to the National Academy of Sciences and Outstanding Investigator Grants from the National Institutes of Health. Based upon his knowledge of retroviruses, he has been at the forefront in challenging the virus-AIDS hypothesis and has published in the world’s leading medical journals. As a consequence, Dr. Duesberg’s hypothesis has won support from many scientists who have been outcast from publishing their views, including Nobel laureates such Kary Mullis, inventor of PCR technology.
