Study Finds Four Cups of Coffee Per Day Lowers Death Risk: A new study from Spanish researchers found that higher coffee consumption is linked to a lower risk of death, with those who drink at least four cups of coffee per day having a 64% lower risk of death than those who did not or hardly consume coffee. Of course, there’s also a strong likelihood you’ll never sleep again, but you will live longer. I’m guessing you’ll simply be way too wired to…Continue

Time for another amazing post by Caitlin Johnstone!
In this post there are two distinct parts.... the first: Her words of wisdom. The second: Her words of wisdom with a Jeff Foxworth twist to them.
"Can a Cushite change his skin? Or a leopard its spots?"
Perhaps the defining characteristic of humans is the drive to divide. We classify just about everything we know, or just think we know, about the world into, generally, two groups. Us and them. Catholics and Protestants. One aspect of our existence is tripartite: dog people, cat people, and no animals people. I'll leave out the bird, fish, rodent, and other micro-fauna folks as mentally deficient. As it happens, I've been in a dog family (not mine, but by marriage) for some decades, and most…Continue
Using a rationale that was declared invalid by the Nuremberg Tribunal after WWII., Trump pardoned the Arrizona sheriff who was found guilty of racists practices and procedures in the racial profiling of innocent people:…Continue

Bill Nye Sues Disney Over $9M Underpayment: Television personality and scientist Bill Nye the Science Guy is suing Disney and several of its subsidiaries claiming the conglomerate underpaid him by at least $9 million for his popular television series. Sources close to the situation say snarky Disney executives told Bill Nye “We paid you correctly, just do the math.” And so, much to Disney’s chagrin - he did. Bottom line - you don’t wanna tell a science…Continue
As we started the march yesterday morning from the Panhandle to Alamo Square Park to join up with folks from various other groups, I found myself looking every which way because I wasn't sure if we'd be attacked.
An atmosphere of fear had been created throughout San Francisco by news that a right-wing group called Patriot Prayer was coming to town to do a rally that would feature and draw white supremacists, Nazis and others. Charlottesville, where two week before an…Continue
Pardoning the racist, ex-Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio was a win-win for Donald Trump.
Many People in Harvey’s Path Refused to Evacuate: Emergency officials in Texas say they were deeply concerned by the large number of people in Hurricane Harvey’s path who chose not to follow instructions and evacuate. And who can blame them? I mean, when you decide to give a dangerous hurricane the same name as your accountant, how’s someone supposed to take that seriously?…Continue
I have been searching Google but can't find out what kind of plant it is. But it is beautiful in seed form, isn't it.…Continue
Anxiety is at a new high for me. I am experiencing many of the same physical symptoms I had when I was pre- and post- divorce. During those years, pharma helped, but I'm not going down that road again.
I have to make some changes in my life, like staying away from the news except for headlines these days. I get the gist, don't worry, but discussion seems fruitless and has become very upsetting.
About a week or so ago, I wrote to every single sitting US Senator.…
