Are We Setting Our Children Up to Fail?

By Arnold Nadler I'm concerned with many of the modern-day parenting concepts. In my era there were more defined parental rules for children to be success as adults. Taught and Ingrained into kids back then were expectations like being well- mannered, respecting elders, obeying the law, listening to authority figures, doing well in school, and religious beliefs. All this was teaching a child how to be a decent respectful adult with values. If any of these expectations were not fulfilled, there was consequences for those actions. It all depended on the infraction as to the punishments handed-out which were grounded, no television, no biking as the worst one being spanked on the bum. Disciplining children to me is not child abuse, but much of society believes reasoning with kids makes more sense then punishment. It is my opinion every person must understand the difference between right and wrong. A healthy fear would be understanding there are consequences for those actions. As an …

Type 2 Diabetes - Will a High Intake of Flavonoids Help Prevent Diabetes?

By Beverleigh H PiepersResearchers at the Central Hospital of Enshi Autonomous Prefecture in Enshi, China, suggest taking in foods containing flavonoids can help prevent the development of Type 2 diabetes. That conclusion was the result of pooling eight earlier studies on the subject and analyzing them as if they were all one large study. The result of the pooled studies was published in May of 2018 in the journal Medicine (Baltimore). A total of 312,015 participants took part in the eight studies, and 19,953 of the participants developed Type 2 diabetes over a period of 4 to 28 years. The participants who had the highest intake of flavonoids had the lowest risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Predatory Arrogance and Primal Subservience - Part 2

By Randy Gonzalez Predatory arrogance within the collusions of primal subservience contends a perspective of collective maladaptive behaviors. Across the broad spectrum of social intercourse, the abusers willingly, by free exercise of deliberate malevolence, inflict harm upon others. Smugly pious, skillfully manipulative, and self-righteously deceptive, predators hunt for prey. However, there are the few who fight back. Nonetheless, subtle and overt, those who perpetrate predation upon other people, contrive oppressive actions by myriad ways. From academia to political processes, the victimization works up and down a scale of regressive purposes to ensure power and domination.Seemingly benign, appearing harmless and superficially helpful, mass marketing actions is one example of such predatory practices. All too often, in the pretentious gullibility of intentional stupidity, many easily accept incidents like murder, rape, robbery and acts of terrorism as manifestations of predatory b…

Business Writing Primer

By Kim L. ClarkWriting is a basic means of communication and we have many reasons to choose to express our thoughts or requests in writing, rather than verbally. Usually, we write to make our thoughts official, to communicate with someone whom we do not know, or to communicate with a large number of people.We write to express our point of view or to make a request. We may write to persuade the reader to take a particular action based on information that is presented, or to consider a new perspective and modify his/her opinion. In other words, writing is selling.All writing is about the intended reader, that is, the audience. Whether it's a book, song, movie, website, marketing brochure, grant proposal, or fundraising letter, the top priority for the writer to keep in mind is that the reader matters most. Writers will benefit from the following guidelines:1. Purpose: Why are you writing?2. Audience: Who is the reader (audience)?3. Outcome: How can you persuade the reader to care a…
