Everyday Activities May Have Same Health Benefits as Going to Gym – WebMD

Short stretches of physical activity -- such as taking the stairs or raking leaves -- throughout the day can be just as beneficial as a trip to the gym, according to a new study.

Researchers looked at more than 6,000 American adults and found that this "active lifestyle approach" appeared to be as effective as structured exercise in providing health benefits such as preventing high blood pressure, high cholesterol and the group of risk factors known as metabolic syndrome that increases the risk for coronary artery disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

I want to believe.

Liberal PBS Runs an Article on Government Default by Gary North

Should the U.S. government default?

Wrong question.

The right question: Can the U.S. government avoid defaulting? The answer is clear: no.

Steve Jobs and Apple Vision


Before you go into the marketplace, make certain you have your central ideals down pat. It doesn't make a difference if you are the richest man or woman in the cemetery. A company needs to have the ethics and the spirit of a startup to stay competitive.

Distortion of Dorner Manifesto by Mainstream Media by Michael S. Rozeff

Expect severe distortion of the Dorner Manifesto by the MSM. You cannot simply read headlines and expect to know anything. You have to do more research than that to understand any issue. You also cannot read only the news articles of one or a few sources, especially the established or mainstream media. These routinely editorialize within so-called news accounts. They selectively choose and distort material.

Expect the worst from govt and media when one single officer going off the reservation causes so much havoc.

Sniperism by William Norman Grigg

Why would you see such a choice as a reflection of the "cynicism" of the expatriate, rather than a demonstration of the failure – indeed, the evil – of the government that has driven him to leave the country he loves? There are thousands of Americans who are being driven to leave this country every week, most of them because they can no longer stand having their honestly earned wealth plundered by Obama and his comrades.

Expatriation is of limited practical value when you're confronted with a regime that claims the world as its natural jurisdiction. I'm reminded of an observation from Edward Gibbon's history of the only previous imperial power to which the Regime in Washington can be compared:

"The empire of the Romans filled the world.... The world became a safe and dreary prison for its enemies.... To resist was fatal, and it was impossible to fly....`Wherever you are,' said Cicero to the exiled Marcellus, `remember that you are equally within the power of the conqueror.'"

the love it or leave it crowd continues to exist - when we need the leave us alone crowd -

Will There Be a US War on China? by Eric Margolis

A war over the Senkaku/Diaoyus would be like the 1998-2000 desert war between Eritrea and Ethiopia, described as "two bald men fighting over a comb." No matter how much fish swim around the Senkakus, or how much oil and gas may be found underwater, nothing justifies a war.

as usual, Eric Margolis is the go to guy for watching international trouble spots -
