We’ve all seen those videos and stories about how a cure for cancer has been suppressed, the secret to dissolving belly fat, etc.. They come from websites with vaguely familiar names and have been “overlooked” or ignored by mainstream medicine and media.
Sometimes, a commercial can cut through the clutter of ordinary advertising and become entertainment. “START THE CAR” from Ikea comes to mind. And this new one featuring our talented pal, Ed.
Life is hard. Stuff happens that’s out of your control. People move, leave, die. You have to take your cat to the vet and not come back home with him. (Us, on Monday) But people also do amazing things for others with no other motivation than it’s the right thing to do, and it feels …
My thanks to blog reader Cameron for tipping me off about something the UK is buzzing about. Coronation Street, the long-running, beloved British soap opera, put a character in a coma because of misdiagnosed sepsis. Survivors like me, and advocates around the world, are taking notice. This is huge.
On this American Independence Day, there will be a lot of discussion about where America stands as a nation. It’s a nation divided. Opposing sides aren’t just bickering with each other, they’re refusing to acknowledge that each side has valid concerns and ideals. If it was a marriage, their poor communication and refusal to go …
Longtime readers might remember references to Cousin Kim. She’s Derek’s cousin by DNA but I’ve definitely claimed her too! With permission of her daughter, Kristina, I’m sharing their story today. It’s a scam I’d never heard of but it’s more common than we might think. A frustrated Kristina told her story on the Mastercard Facebook …
Quashing the truth always worries me. I’m concerned for a generation of kids growing up with confusing messages from (supposed) grown-ups who tell stories with facts conveniently omitted because those facts don’t support their narrative.
Perhaps I got a little too blase about purchasing things online. I don’t even remember what my mindset was like when I bought Advanced Final Skin Care on a ‘risk-free trial’ by paying ‘only the shipping cost’. I defy anyone to check their web page or ad and find the “clearly explained” terms and conditions …
It breaks my heart to see so many people sharing bogus health information on social media. Add to that, the conspiracy theories surrounding the government suppressing the cures for cancer and other diseases. Scientists have families too.
Not chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies. Cookies on the Internet that capture a bit of data from your visit to a website only to use it against you later on.
If this post makes you a little uncomfortable, that’s part of the reason I’m writing it. It’s evidence of a problem that needs fixing for girls of the present and future.
If you weren’t aware, Google has an online translation service. I’ve used it here and there and recently Ken read about an Easter Egg on the site. Remember Easter Eggs on DVDs? They were little hidden gems, like outtakes or special scenes, that you could only find if you knew where to look.
For every Kim Kardashian,who focuses on body image and striving for perfection, there’s a Pink, telling girls to be who they naturally are and how that’s plenty good enough.
Happy short work-week! I think that should become more of a thing. Long weekend. Short work-week. I’ll get in touch with Hallmark and see if we can’t get some cards made up. But I digress.
