President Obama Speaks on the Economy

Has Neoliberalism Turned Us All Into Psychopaths?

We tend to perceive our identities as stable and largely separate from outside forces. But over decades of research and therapeutic practice, I have become convinced that economic change is having a profound effect not only on our values but also on our personalities. Thirty years of neoliberalism, free-market forces and privatization have taken their toll, as relentless pressure to achieve has become normative. If you’re skeptical, I put this simple statement to you: meritocratic neoliberalism favors certain personality traits and penalizes others. 
There are certain ideal characteristics needed to make a career today. The first is articulateness, the aim being to win over as many people as possible. Contact can be superficial, but since this applies to most human interaction nowadays, this won’t really be noticed.

Obama blasts Fox News over Obamacare

Via JMG: Unemployent Rate Hits Six-Year Low

The Labor Department today reported that 248,000 jobs were created last month, pushing the unemployment down to a six-year low of 5.9%. Via Politico:
The number of new jobs easily surpassed expectations — analysts had predicted 215,000 jobs created last month, according to a Bloomberg survey. Friday’s robust jobs report comes at an opportune time for the White House as it makes a final push ahead the midterm elections to highlight the economic recovery during the Obama administration. This is the last jobs report before voters go to the polls on Nov. 4. “The data underscore that six years after the Great Recession — thanks to the hard work of the American people and in part to the policies the President has pursued — our economy has bounced back more strongly than most others around the world,” Jason Furman, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said in a statement.
The dip in unemployment can be attributed in part to an estimated 96,000 Americans leaving the work force. The labor force participation rate also dipped slightly to 62.7%.

UNEP official: Only a "fundamentally different" approach will curb climate change
Countries need to pursue a "complete transformation" of their approaches to climate change, says Kaveh Zahedi, regional director and representative for Asia and the Pacific at the United Nations Environment Programme. "It's (an approach) where the energy we use will not cause the emission of greenhouse gases but also ... emit less methane that is affecting our crops, (and) emit less black carbon that is affecting the health of our people," Zahedi argues.

For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water

2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute
3.. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours

Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks:

• 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.
• Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...
