Olivia Anderson – This Organic Food Company Doesn’t Discriminate Against People With Criminal Records — It Seeks Them Out

Mike Miles hadn’t had a stable job in years. He bounced around from temp agency to temp agency, never sure when his last day would be. Sometimes, he lost a position with less than a day’s notice. This wasn’t due to a poor work ethic — from arriving early to staying late, Miles says he did everything he could to …

Trends This Week – Celente Slams Media for Underplaying Market Meltdowns – 01.13.16

Classic tell-it-like-it-is Gerald Celente. The master global forecaster breaks down how the mainstream media soft-peddled coverage of Wall Street’s worst opening of a new year in its history. Despite the Dow industrials plummeting more than 1,000 points to ring in the worst first week of the new year ever, and despite US stocks losing $1.36 trillion in value, and despite crude oil’s price tumbling 11 percent in one week, the business-media spin was that the strong jobs report proved the fundamentals of the economy were sound. Indeed, The New York Times, the self-anointed “Paper of Record,” featured the jobs report on page 1 while burying the Dow’s history-making dive on the lower-bottom left of the next-to-last page of the business section with the less-than-startling headline, “Markets slide to worst week in 4 years.” Even The Wall Street Journal’s top-of-the-page headline, “Bad week for stocks dims outlook,” played down the severity of the history-making market-mauling by overshadowing it with a dramatic front-page photo of a gunman shooting a policeman driving a squad car in Philadelphia. All essential indicators signal a global recession is not only inevitable, it’s imminent, just as the Trends Research Institute forecast last year. But the mainstream business media is passively waiting for the storm to blow over.

Kevin Loria – This man’s potentially huge medical breakthrough can’t get any funding — and now he’s trying something desperate

Four years ago, Todd Rider was on top of the world. The MIT-trained bioengineer had developed a radical idea for killing viruses. Initial test results showed that his therapy, called DRACO, could kill every virus he threw it at: 15 viruses were killed in human cells, and two in mice. It seemed like there was a chance it could be the biggest discovery …

America Speaking Out

Living the High Life After Congress

As the latest chapter in the curious saga of Congressman Aaron “Fly Me” Schock recently came to an end, there was an unintentionally, darkly comic moment. It happened just after the Downton Abbey fanboy announced his resignation from the House of Representatives. In an interview, his father, Dr. Richard Schock, told a Chicago TV station, “Ten years from now, whatever he’s doing, he’ll …
