Trump Won! My Post Election Day Confession

Before I start, I must explain what I mean by the Establishment. While I don't know who sets Establishment policy, and whether there is one Establishment for each political party or a bifurcated Establishment where both parties agree on matters of globalization and war, but split on internal matters such as taking sides in workers-vs.-owners issues.

During the presidential primaries of the Democratic Party, I voted for Bernie Sanders. I believed that he had correctly gauged the anger of the voting public who were fed up with Establishment politics that favored large corporations, and the wealthy at the expense of the average citizen. At that same time, since I had no stake in the Republican Party, I regarded Donald Trump as being completely unqualified to be a presidential candidate: the hateful words from his mouth proved it. I failed to see that Trump was also tapping into a different element of the angry public, those who not only were feeling the pinch of Es…

Start A Home Based Business And Retire Young

Cash flow is the most crucial word in the world of revenue. The second most crucial word is leverage. Leverage is the cause some individuals become wealthy and other people don't become wealthy.

Among the recognized forms of leverage is the leverage of borrowing cash. Millions of individuals scramble financially because the power of debt leverage is utilized against them. Great debt makes you wealthy and bad debt makes you poor.

The most potent sort of leverage in the world, your brain, has the might to make you wealthy or make you poor.

Factors to consider when designing the display

4 Interesting Facts on Umbilical Cords

Ever wondered if there is a relationship between your umbilical cord and the belly button? Of course there is! When you have your little one inside your womb, it needs a life-support system to survive the pregnancy gestation period. This support is comprised of the placenta, the umbilical cord and the amniotic sac filled with amniotic fluid. "The baby's life hangs by a cord", as said by Ian Donald, aptly tells the importance of the umbilical cord.

The umbilical cord plays the essential role of attaching your baby to the placenta and keeps feeding your baby. During delivery, the placenta is expelled from your uterus through a process known as the after-birth. The umbilical cord, once your baby is delivered is clamped and cut. The remaining section of the cord heals and later becomes the baby's belly button.

Nevertheless, most are aware of these common facts. But there are some really fun insights that you probably never thought about:

Why Should You Eat Parboiled Rice Every Day?

People often question that how come the Japanese are so fit and slim despite eating rice and noodles on a daily basis? While there are numerous reasons behind their physical dexterity, one vital fact is that they don't consume the regular white rice but parboiled rice. Parboiled rice, also known as converted rice, is the grain that is partially boiled in the husk in order to augment its nutritional profile for added benefits. But what benefits? While there are various kinds of rice grains ranging from white rice to brown rice to black rice, every specific variety has its own advantages. Parboiled Rice though stands a cut above them. Although it isn't yet officially declared as the healthiest rice (considering there are thousands of categories), it is certainly the most effective one for the following reasons: -

1. Increases Metabolism

Parboiled rice is a great source of vitamin B-9, or Folate. Since our body is dependable on the specified vitamin and amino acids, …

Change Our Routine And We Change Our Life

Wasn't it Einstein that said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get different results? Do things the same and we'll get the same, right? And do something different and we'll get something different, right? Simple! Not easy, but certainly simple logic, right?

I would like you to imagine three containers lined up neatly in our ice box and every day we scoop ice cream out of the container on the far right. Every time we do this routine we end up with chocolate ice cream in our bowls. And since it is chocolate ice cream, and chocolate ice cream is so good, we tend to be relatively content with this daily routine of reaching for the far right container.

Now imagine one day we do something different and we reach for the middle container. We did something different in our daily routine and now we got something different in our bowl. This probably makes sense to us though because if we do something different like …

Being A Vulnerabe Leader

No-one likes to feel vulnerable. At least I'm assuming you don't, because I know I certainly don't. Its meaning talks about being open to wounding or attack and that's just not pleasant or to be sought after. We need to be more open to the idea though and think through the benefits.

What Is Vulnerability?

I don't mean we should be like the dad play fighting with his kids inviting them to hit him, because he knows they haven't got the capacity to hurt him. Instead I mean we should lay ourselves bare, opening ourselves up to the possibility of serious attack. Notice I only say the 'possibility', not the certainty. I am not advocating jumping into the lion's den, literally or figuratively. I have no desire to see any of us be mauled. Don't actively court a beating; think Top Gear in times past, goading people in countries they drove through.

Instead what I am talking about is more linked to authenticity; allowing people to see you wart…
