test quote

Because it’s free! Because like Chicken Soup, it can’t hurt! If someone discovers a mine with what could be an abundance of gold or a mountain of fool’s gold, and they offer you a share in that mine for free, why on earth would you not accept it? Better still, if you could go back in time, and grab hold of a few free shares of Google at its inception, would ya take it? Damn right!!

Ok, so now you know, you MUST establish an account on Twitter, NOW! Go ahead, do it now, I’ll wait for you to come back here.

There, don’t you feel better? You should. Or more importantly, you will when you realize the potential marketing power of Twitter, learning about Ashton Kutcher’s personal hygiene notwithstanding.

First, dismiss any stories, articles, incessant emails and spam you keep seeing about people making their fortune on Twitter. If you believe them, let’s discuss the bridge I have for sale. Further, forget about the blogs and editorials talking about what Twitter could be, might be, or should be. Again, even Twitter doesn’t know for sure. Let’s just discuss what Twitter is right now.

One Fun Night with Motivation and Food for the Soul – Featuring Conscious Evolution

Empower 180 – Empowering Women in Business

Les Brown and JW Najarian

Les Brown and JW Najarian

Last night I got a chance to hang out at Empower 180 for the kickoff of their national tour. You can go to www.Empower180.com for more information and to see where they will be next.

What an incredible event that almost no one went to.  I am not sure if it was the marketing or if people are just giving up? Actually I visited another event later in the evening at UCLA at Royce Hall and the event was a sell-out so I have to believe it is marketing.

Anyway I really hope they do better going forward as this is an incredible lineup of speakers.

  • Les Brown
  • Christine Comaford
  • Barbara DeAngelis
  • Garret Gunderson
  • Kevin Harrington
  • Chris Howard
  • Lynn Rose
  • Bill Walsh

and so many more..

These events are so powerful as they help us find out who we are and where we are going and they help us ask the questions of ourselves that we need to ask and many of the speakers motivate us to new highs and many others give us answers to the big questions.

Especially now we need to get together with other like minded business people and entrepreneurs, because we cannot expect different results from doing the same thing over and over.

Many of my colleagues give me a hard time for going to these events, but I not only owe my life to my mentors, but owe my growth to allowing myself to be open to being on the learning line of my life.

Take a chance and change your life. Plug in, read, go to webinars and seminars… grab the great info and don’t buy anything if you don’t want to, but do put yourself out.

I was really lucky to find out from my good friend Lisa Schneiderman, that another event was going on at Royce Hall, UCLA campus. After getting the chance to say hello to Les Brown, and Garret Gunderson, I got a chance to meet Kevin Harrington who you may know from Shark Tank. This guy has sold over 4 billion dollars worth of products and discovered Billy Mays. This is a guy I am guessing you would like to get the chance to spend a minute or two with. I got to sit down and watch someone pitch him a product and then got my picture with him.  Nice guy.

I took off to Royce Hall, but got there late so I missed Deepak, but did get to see many others speak to conscious Evolution. An incredible program.

A Call to Action: Global Leader Address Global Concerns

Best-selling authors and Evolutionary luminaries, Deepak Chopra, Jack Canfield, Gregg Braden, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Debbie Ford and Bruce Lipton join other world-renowned thought leaders to ignite conscious action for a healthier planet and more peaceful human existence. The gulf oil spill, the economic meltdown,

combative political views in our 24/7 world…we’re on a collision course of our own making unless we approach the mounting concerns that we face as a global community.

Siedah Garrett who is famous for writing “Man in the Mirror” and then getting to go on stage and sing it with Michael Jackson stopped by to sing a song she wrote for the event and along with the Agape Church choir. She also sang the most moving version of Man in the Middle.  Here it is on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3yifluOOCM.  I only got the end. Awwww

The day was full of passion and great information and the night was filled with hope and the dream of a better world going forward.

Thank you Lisa Schneiderman of Schneiderman PR Firm and also my hang buddy Aggie Kobrin of Off Hollywood Media you both ROCK!

Scare ’em into Green?

There was much ado about the scientists who admitted to hiding some facts about the numbers that were being published on global warming. What a shame.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it was a shame that they lied, but rather that they have to lie; that it will take that lie and more.

Just another perspective.

It’s hardly exciting to hear news stories about everyday families that are still plodding along.  So for the most part, the media ignores them.

Those not directly impacted are in many other ways touched by this recession.  Surely they feel the pressure all around them.  It’s a perspective that doesn’t get much play, but without question it will have a profound impact on the aftermath of this insanity ……….. but I wonder how?

Those looking up from the bottom of this pit, hoping for a glimpse of sunlight, will surely take some hard learned lessons to heart, and for at least as long as the scars take to heal.  And who knows how long that will be?

For the majority, still gainfully employed, will this recession be no more than a passing cloud? Will the lessons to be learned, only be heeded by those who were hurt?  Will we quickly fall back into the same patterns and habits that led to this disaster?

I hope our collective conscience can somehow reconcile with our inherent greed and overactive egos.  As one prophet put it, you can’t always get what we want, but if you try, sometimes you might find, you get what you need.

Salt: It does a body good!

Salt is Good for You?

I love the show Mythbusters and BullShit as they both change our paradigm and stretch our minds showing us that just because we believe something, doesn’t make it so and often can stop us from doing things based on what we think we know or have learned by our peers and our parents passing down, often bad information.

Or at least, hopefully. You may have heard the term “Convince a Fool Against Their Will; There of the Same Opinion Still”.

These shows are always great because the information we use to guide our daily lives and the beliefs we have; always seems to make sense. At least I hope that if you are basing how you live your life, on your beliefs, that you have checked them out and that they at least pass some kind of logic test.

Of course, both “common logic” and “common sense” may be common, but not logical or sensible; and these shows prove this week after week.

The Point? Salt studies are now showing that the salt scare your parents and doctors have leveled against you, for years, may have little truth or basis in science.

As reported by CNN as long ago as 1998 “”For too long we’ve ignored the fact that blood pressure regulation is more closely tied to calcium, potassium and magnesium than it ever wasto sodium,” says Dr. David McCarron of Oregon Health Sciences University.

But don’t start pouring on the salt just yet. Many people with high blood pressure still need to cut back on salt.

“We don’t want to abandon the salt message, but we want to expand upon it and say that there are other things that are important, too,” says Chris Rosenbloom of the American Dietetic Association.

Recipe for low blood pressure

And the evidence is mounting. A recent article in the journal Science confirms: A salt-restricted diet rich in fruits, vegetables and fat-free or low-fat dairy products provides the greatest reduction in blood pressure.

“The effect of low-fat dairy products and fruits and vegetables appears to be someplace between 10 and 20 times as effective as restriction of salt,” McCarron says.

“The guidelines are clear — three to four servings of low-fat diary products, five to eight servings of fruits and vegetables a day,” he says” Read More: http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/9808/13/salt.blood.pressure/

Jenny Thompson in her HSI e-Alert wrote the following:

“Lowering sodium intake may actually increase risk of heart attack and death.

And here’s the proof: In three different trials that tested low-sodium diets on patients with kidney disease and heart failure, results linked the special diets to higher risk of  hospitalizations, cardiovascular events, and death.

Yeah–THAT wasn’t supposed to happen!

In a recent Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Michael Alderman (a past president of the International Society of Hypertension) called for large-scale clinical trials that will hopefully produce definitive data on what outcomes can be expected in following a reduced-sodium diet.

And why would we need those trials?

According to Dr. David McCarron–a nutritionist and University of California professor–there’s currently no reliable evidence that backs up the accepted recommendation to reduce sodium intake for heart health. Dr. McCarron says the recommendation is based only on opinion and the demonization of salt by health authorities, such as the CDC.

And now I’ll tell you something you’ll have no trouble believing.

One of the key points in the new USDA dietary recommendations: Significantly reduce sodium intake.

———————————————————–
Real life mythbuster
———————————————————–

Writing about the new USDA recommendations in Canada’s Financial Post, Dr. McCarron has more salt myths to bust.

Last year he led a study that measured daily salt intake in more than 19,000 subjects from about 30 countries.

The three surprising conclusions:
1) Americans consume no more salt than people in other countries
2) Salt consumption in the U.S. has NOT increased over the past 25 years
3) No matter how salty your food, your body naturally regulates your intake, so you wind up with a consistent overall intake

This is why deliberately forcing down your salt intake is a bad plan–not healthy at all. Your body takes what it needs. And it does need sodium.

Several years ago, German research showed that as many as 1 in 10 seniors suffer from hyponatraemia (low blood levels of sodium).

Hyponatraemia usually goes undiagnosed because symptoms are similar to conditions we associate with aging: fatigue, confusion, poor balance, and
incontinence. In advanced hyponatraemia, patients have hallucinations and may
even lapse into a coma.

The German study reported that a large majority of the elderly subjects said they avoided salt based on the popular misconception that salt intake causes
high blood pressure.

Gee, USDA, I wonder where they’re getting that misguided information.” Read More http://hsibaltimore.com/2010/06/30/sodium/
