With the winter months coming and the wonderful Ebola virus here in America,  (Don’t get me started on how ridiculous our government is to think that it couldn’t get here and is only now do something to prevent it!!) it is highly important that you create some juices that are loaded with Vitamin C for strong immunity!

Here are some of the ingredients that I have surprisingly found to have super high levels of Vit C:

  • Kale :  1 Bunch 280%
  • Clementines : 1 fruit 120%
  • Oranges : 1 medium 100%
  • Lemons : 1 lemon 50%
  • Bell Peppers : 1 large 300%
  • Spinach : 1 bunch 160%
  • Cabbage : 60%
  • Pineapple : 130%
  • Kiwi : 150%

Also add in a strong probiotic daily and either oregano, peppermint or wheatgrass tablets/capsules.  Make sure you add in garlic to your food.  It is highly antibiotic and is stronger than medical antibiotics.  Now you…

CDC Confirms Healthcare Worker Who Provided Care for First Patient Positive for Ebola

Patient isolated and public health investigation ongoing

Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed test results reported late last night by the Texas Department of State Health Services’ public health laboratory showing that a healthcare worker at Texas Presbyterian Hospital is positive for Ebola. The healthcare worker, who provided care for the Dallas index patient, was isolated soon after symptoms started and remains so now.

On Friday, October 10, the healthcare worker reported a low-grade fever overnight and was referred for testing. The healthcare worker had been self-monitoring for fever and symptoms. As a precaution, after identification of fever, the healthcare worker was isolated and CDC staff interviewed the patient to determine additional contacts or potential exposures. At this time, one close contact has been identified and is being…

BELLEAU, France, June 18, 1998 – For military historians and battlefield buffs, the wheat fields and farm villages here are rich in the details of heroic attacks, untold sacrifices and ultimate victory. For others, especially the U.S. Marine Corps, this is hallowed ground, a sacred place of pilgrimage.

American, French and German military men and women come here to honor fallen brethren. They also come so that those who fought and died live on in the hearts and minds of those who follow.

Silently, they visit the American cemetery, where white crosses and Stars of David mark 2,289 graves, 250 for unknown service members, and the names of 1,060 missing men adorn the wall of…

Floyd Mayweather responds to 50 Cent’s reading challenge

One of the best subplots heading into Floyd Mayweather’s September 13th rematch with Marcos Maidana is the simmering beef between Mayweather and rapper 50 Cent. Last week, 50 Cent challenged Mayweather to read one page of a Harry Potter book (he later lowered the bar to Cat In The Hat). If Mayweather accepted, 50 Cent would donate $750,000 to charity.

50 Cent has been incessantly teasing Mayweather on Twitter, but the undefeated boxer finally responded the only way he knows how: by showing the world how much money he makes.

Scans Show Psychopaths Have Brain Abnormalities

By  Associate News Editor
Reviewed by John M. Grohol, Psy.D. on May 11, 2012

Scans Show Psychopaths Have Brain Abnormalities    new research shows that psychopathy is linked to specific structural abnormalities in the brain.

The study, published in theArchives of General Psychiatry and led by researchers at King’s College London, also confirmed that psychopathy is a distinct sub-group of antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), said Nigel Blackwood, M.D., from the College’s Institute of Psychiatry and lead author of the study.

He noted that most violent crimes are committed by a small group of male offenders with ASPD, but only about a third of these men are true psychopaths (ASPD+P). Psychopaths are characterized by a lack of empathy and remorse, and use aggression in a planned way to secure what they want, whether it is status or money.

Previous research has shown that psychopaths’ brains differ structurally from healthy brains, but until now, none have examined these differences within a population of violent offenders with ASPD, Blackwood said.

“Using MRI scans we found that psychopaths had structural brain abnormalities in key areas of their ‘social brains’ compared to those who just had ASPD,” he said.

He noted there is a clear difference between those with ASPD and those with ASPD+P.

“We describe those without psychopathy as hot-headed and those with psychopathy as cold-hearted,” he said.

“The cold-hearted psychopathic group begin offending earlier, engage in a broader range and greater density of offending behaviors, and respond less well to treatment programs in adulthood, compared to the hot-headed group. We now know that this behavioral difference corresponds to very specific structural brain abnormalities which underpin psychopathic behavior, such as profound deficits in empathizing with the distress of others.”

The researchers used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to scan the brains of 44 violent offenders diagnosed with ASPD. Crimes committed included murder, rape, attempted murder and grievous bodily harm. Of these, 17 met the diagnosis for psychopathy (ASPD+P) and 27 did not (ASPD-P). They also scanned the brains of 22 healthy non-offenders.

The study found that ASPD+P offenders displayed significantly reduced grey matter volumes in the anterior rostral prefrontal cortex and temporal poles compared to ASPD-P offenders and healthy non-offenders.

These areas are important in understanding other people’s emotions and intentions and are activated when people think about moral behavior, the researchers noted. Damage to these areas is associated with impaired empathizing with other people, a poor response to fear and distress, and a lack of self-conscious emotions such as guilt or embarrassment.

“Identifying and diagnosing this sub-group of violent offenders with brain scans has important implications for treatment,” Blackwood continued. “Those without the syndrome of psychopathy, and the associated structural brain damage, will benefit from cognitive and behavioral treatments. Optimal treatment for the group of psychopaths is much less clear at this stage.”

Chronic Childhood Stress Leaves Lasting Impact on Brain. An interesting article…

By  Associate News Editor
Reviewed by John M. Grohol, Psy.D. on June 29, 2014

child-covering-eyes-with-hands-blond-white-big-SSExtreme stress experienced during childhood, such as poverty, neglect, and physical abuse, might alter the parts of the brain responsible for learning, memory, and the processing of stress and emotion.

These changes may be linked to negative effects on behavior, health, employment, and even the choice of romantic partners later in life, according to researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

“We haven’t really understood why things that happen when you’re two, three, four years old stay with you and have a lasting impact,” said Dr. Seth Pollak, co-leader of the study and UW-Madison professor of psychology.

“Yet,” noted Pollak, “early life stress has been linked to depression,anxiety, heart disease, cancer, and a lack of educational and employment success.”

“Given how costly these early stressful experiences are for society … unless we understand what part of the brain is affected, we won’t be able to tailor something to do about it,” said Pollak, also director of the UW Waisman Center’s Child Emotion Research Laboratory.

The study involved 128 children, approximately age 12, who had experienced either physical abuse, neglect early in life, or came from low socioeconomic status.

The children and their caregivers underwent in-depth interviews, reporting behavioral problems and their cumulative life stress. The researchers also took images of the children’s brains, focusing on the hippocampus and amygdala, parts of the brain involved in emotion and stress processing. These images were compared to similar children from middle-class households who had not been maltreated.

The researchers outlined each child’s hippocampus and amygdala by hand and calculated their volumes. Both brain structures are very small, especially in children, and the researchers believed that automated software measurements might be prone to error.

The findings showed that children who experienced any of the three types of early life stress had smaller amygdalas than children who had not. Children who lived in poverty and children who had been physically abused also had smaller hippocampal volumes.

Putting the same images through automated software showed no effects. Behavioral problems and increased cumulative life stress were linked to smaller hippocampus and amygdala volumes.

“For me, it’s an important reminder that as a society we need to attend to the types of experiences children are having,” Pollak said. “We are shaping the people these individuals will become.”

But the findings, say the researchers, are only markers for neurobiological change — a display of the robustness of the human brain, and not a crystal ball to be used to see the future.

“Just because it’s in the brain doesn’t mean it’s destiny,” said study author and UW Ph.D. graduate Jamie Hanson.

The study is published in the journal Biological Psychiatry.

Words… perhaps aren’t necessary for this piece. Bizarre and a little gross, but it does force the viewer to figure out what’s happening in this picture. I did the picture. I glean my own definition, my own understanding… what do you think of this artwork? #obesity

If you found 3 or more of the above pictures, somehow cool, then you are officially in the most intelligent group, the ‘Weird’ group! 

If you found 2 or less of the above pictures, somewhat, not cool, then you are officially in the Republican Party! Just kidding, just kidding… but no, you are definitely less intelligent than the weirdos!

I hope you enjoyed the odd art and simple writing. I enjoyed writing and researching! I’m a nerd and a weirdo!

Have you heard of the word narcissist before? What does the word mean to you? For many years, I thought it was simply, a person that loved one’s self more than anyone else…a person that was an ‘ego-maniac’. Simple…much too simple, as I have found out over the years.

Narcissist’s naturally have over-inflated perceptions of themselves’. Narcissistic personality disorder is characterized by dramatic, emotional behavior, which is in the same category as antisocial and borderline personality disorders.

  • Expecting constant praise and admiration
  • Believing that you’re special and acting accordingly

  • Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
  • Taking advantage of others
  • Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
  • Being jealous of others
  • Believing that others are jealous of you
  • Trouble keeping healthy relationships
  • Setting unrealistic goals
  • Being easily hurt and rejected
  • Having a fragile self-esteem
  • Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional

Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence or strong self-esteem, it’s not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence and self-esteem into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal. In contrast, people who have healthy confidence and self-esteem don’t value themselves more than they value others.

Celebrities are more likely to be narcissistic according to the most recent psychological science. Excessive “Selfies” are also an indicator of narcissism.                                    Image courtesy of http://www.independent.ie via Google Images

When you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious. You often monopolize conversations. You may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior. You may have a sense of entitlement. And when you don’t receive the special treatment to which you feel entitled, you may become very impatient or angry. You may insist on having “the best” of everything — the best car, athletic club, medical care or social circles, for instance.

But underneath all this behavior often lies a fragile self-esteem. You have trouble handling anything that may be perceived as criticism. You may have a sense of secret shame and humiliation. And in order to make yourself feel better, you may react with rage or contempt and efforts to belittle the other person to make yourself appear better.
