Food for Thought

Reported by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing has had a lot of controversy over hunger. All athletes are having trouble finding nutrition. Athletes and coaches have been warned about food contaminates. WADA has sent word to each represented country to exercise extreme caution when eating meat in China. It is likely to contain the Clenbuterol often known to be called “Lean Meat Powder.” Clenbuterol is a steroid.  


Medically It is used a decongestant for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma.

WADA spokesperson outlined those athletes only “eat at places given the all-clear by event organizer’s”. WADA said; meat in China has been known to contain low levels of the steroid clenbuterol, which would produce a positive test result as a Performance Enhancing Drug (PED.)

According to Bloomburg , a world-wide online news source,states China has been adding this particular drug to its food for decades.

In the attempt to place the “best foot forward” as a more a aesthetic public. Did not receive a glowing review from other countries. In 1997 China banned the steroid, but like prohibition in the United States, the drug never left. A study was done in 2015 and found the steroid drug has remain spread thought-out the country.  

South China Morning Post

Eating this type of protein, as an individual person and as an Olympic athlete produces a positive test result as a performance-enhancing drug (PED). As a side effect of the drug promotes lean muscle and reduction of fat.  For the athletes this would block everyone who tests positive from competing in the Winter Olympic Games. The Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympics has sent out a release assuring care has been taken to protect the safety of each athlete.

What about the average person?


Food Modification Has A Larger Footprint

What if livestock animals were fed with a banned steroid to gain in weight, while babies might suffer forms of malnutrition. Where sewage can be used to manufacture cooking oils. And red dye can be added to chili sauce and noodles with a known link to inflammation linking red dye to cancer.

You should look at processed meat, processed oils, and items like SpaghettiOs differently. The reality is, this is going on now.


Our Health As A Nation

The United States imports $4.6 billion in agricultural products from China.  The top U.S. import commodities from China are fruits and vegetables (fresh/processed), snack food, spices, and tea.


The combined accounts account for nearly one-half of the total United States agricultural (ag.) imports from China.


China is among the top export markets for the U.S major ag. commodities. Such as processed foods called Beef & Pork, using the drug Clenbuterol. The USDA, a Climate-Smart Commodities, is in the business of doing business. The drug is allowed in the U.S. mainly because it is not standard practice to test for additives like this drug.

Legally, The Food and Drug Administration is the government agency that regulates certain food, drugs, cosmetics, and medical products. It is not in the agreement to regulate this certain type of processed food, beef and pork, and other commodities because it is not necessary. Given China has legally regulated itself. The U.S. are long term businesses partners with China and until a large event that cannot be covered up or settled out of court, we will never change this practice. There have been countless whistleblowers in past. All have been hushed and media flooded.

Reuters Reported China’s Authority discovered half a million illegal food safety violations throughout 2016.

Forbs, an American business magazine , looked into China’s children & its link; milk powder that was later found to have been adulterated with melamine.

Melamine is a chemical that is used industrially. In the United States, it is approved for: plastic products, paper, paperboard, and industrial coatings. The Magazine later found the milk powder to be owned by Sanlu Group. The largest producer of milk products of China. Sanli Group belongs to and funded/controlled by the China government.


The situation of media and long term relationship the U.S. has with China is constantly used to improve image and manage optics. The truth is it is hurting our heath as a nation.

In 2008 News organization, Reuters tells the truth. Asking for help to “cover up” China’s image before 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

“Please can the government increase control and coordination of the media, to create a good environment for the recall of the company’s problem products,”
-The People’s Daily cited the letter from Sanlu as saying.


Red food dye produced by China shows a direct link to Cancer.


 Food dyes, synthesized originally from coal tar and now petroleum, have long been controversial because of safety concerns. Many dyes have been banned because of their adverse effects on laboratory animals or inadequate testing.


The U.S. owns 60% of shares in the joint venture with Swire PacificForm a China company.

China’s Red #40 have found a way into the American soup market. Campbell’s has a joint venture will be based in Campbell’s current offices in Shanghai and will be responsible for manufacturing, packaging, branding, marketing, selling and distributing soup, broth and stock products in China.

Understanding: Basics of the Internet

A Deep Dive Into The Web- Photo by Hacker Combat

Understanding: Basics of the Internet

The internet is comprised of three parts: Surface Web, Deep Web, and the Dark Web. First let’s explore the daily driver, our surface web!

– Photo by Hacker Combat

Surface Web is the smallest part of the internet. You can access it with a regular browser and search engines. It is easily accessible by the general public and does not require any special configuration. You might be familiar with Facebook, Wikipedia, any basic e-commerce sites and YouTube.

Let’s get this out of the way,
Many confuse search engines and browsers.
a browser (infrastructure) is a piece of software that retrieves and displays web pages; a search engine (service) a website that helps people find web pages from other websites.


The Deep Web is a portion of the internet not normally searchable by regular search engines. Most could be password protected.

– Photo by Hacker Combat

You might also need log-in to a specific IP address or URL to access the content on the site. Some sites on the deep web do not use standard top-level domains (TLD) such as; .gov, .com, .net, ect., other sites might explicitly block search engines from identifying them.

FUN FACT: The dark web was mainly used by government, and big businesses. However technology, like Tor and I2P, has allowed us better access to it. The early version of Tor was created to mask spy communications. It has since been remodeled & made public. Think of Tor as a regular browser that passes your traffic through random nodes before reaching its destination. Therefore it cannot be traced or exposed giving you anonymity.

IS THE DEEP WEB BAD? Doesn’t it have a bad reputation?

Yeah, however you can find legitimate content & activities. Such as information from the intellectual dark web (IDW) not available to the public or information that is been censored. Up-to- date studies and World Health Organization (WHO) planning summaries. You can create search queries through SearX. Dive into real news and journalism through ProPublica. As a writer or an information specialist they can share data to the public privately while protecting their identity. ProPublica is know for this. Along with great music lists and profiles and super dupe podcasts. Digital radio stations like Deep Web Radio. Watch T.V. through Virginia Tech‘s tunnel system. For malware reasons I am only linking one 🙂

In the last part of the 90’s decade a project created, by the United States Naval Research Laboratories (NRL), a network called onion. Onion, is a network browser that gives you access to a network within the deep webs network called: ” .onion”. Remember the expression,

Peeling back the onion-

– metaphor for what takes place during the process of self-discovery. When discovered in this way, we are able to take the necessary time to allow the layers to slowly peel back in order to allow for the hidden parts to emerge.

Caution: Since the internet is open to everyone, there’s no privacy!

“The internet hates authority”
– SETH MAXON, Slate.com

Last, but not least, the Dark web.

– Photo by Hacker Combat

The Dark Web Is a subset of the deep web, inaccessible generally. It relies on a encrypted peer-to-peer network connection (P2P). Meaning it requires a special set of tools and software. Tor and I2P are also two commonly used tools for accessing the dark web by providing anonymity. An easy way to provide content on the dark web is to receive a link from a person who already knows about dark web.


It is perfectly legal to access and browse deep web & dark web. You can reap several benefits from it.

Both, Tor and I2P browsers are legal to access and use.


Remember there are still illegal activities on the dark web and if not treated with caution you can become a victim of cybercrime, malware or a hacker’s snack. Be respectful and aware of what you are searching for. My suggestion, don’t go looking for trouble. It will find you searching for it, literally. Do your backend research. And Explore. The benefits outway the the harm.

Note: If you must seek the dark web, a subset of the deep web, talk to a dark web user.


Next Time:

Going Deeper: Explaining the Types of Threats Associated with the Dark Web. Scams, govt monitoring, law enforcement, malicious software & why a virtual private network (VPN) is SO IMPORTANT.

A VPN creates a secure connection between you and the internet. When you connect to the internet through a VPN, all your data traffic is sent through an encrypted virtual tunnel.

Ear Dump

Hungry for an ear snack? Stay under the water a little longer with Bret Weinstein, yeah it’s the guy related to the guy you’re thinking of, and talk about the intelligence of the dark web & some not so beneficial advantages this side of the iceberg provides and the people who take advantage.

Self Awareness

We End up Here, Where We Choose to Be

Rather than thinking of liberation at some future time.
It can be found through the practice of letting the little things go.
One at a time.

If we do not,
we run the risk of being dragged along,
moments lost hauled through in anxiety,
Feelings avaded.
Seconds pass in days and,
years pass in moments,
remembering empty loss of thoughts un-tangled,
without conscious awareness life’s love or passion.
The sun will rise & set,
With no measure.
Empty recollection of our importance.
We end, where we do not choose to be.

one at a time,
Letting go means learning how to lighten up,
Enlighten up, here where we choose to be.
one step, one moment,
one sun rise & one sun set,
Measured in evaluation.
Loosen your tight grip on things.
Relax your tendencies to try & control everything in your environment.

Breathe.
Let the little things go,
One at a time,
Here and now, where you choose to be.

Breaking The Law, Almost

Premeditation is an element of a crime 

We Are Prey

The Best way to get the public to take COVID-19 vaccines is not have a plan. This isn’t an idea; it is a fact and the National Government bought this proven methodology in support of vaccinations in United States. Dr. Peter Breggen an American psychiatrist who studied at Harvard University explains. Breggen is standing for the right to choose alongside many others MD’s and medical professionals. His most recent accomplishment the book titled: Covid-19 & The Global Predators: We Are The Prey, has many Americans thinking about the next few years a little differently. The book has thousands of citations showing when and how, the United States government cut funding projects like: United States/China virus collaboration (link). Writing in detail why the National and the Federal Government has come to an alliance (implying kickbacks) to impose immunizations in a potential non-voluntary and systematic way. Both National and Federal government believe not only to save the public but to protect our health and improve our economy in the process is the best way move forward.

Moderna was working on the vaccine before the virus emanated out of the lab. Under the collusions and the operations big money health providers like The Gates Foundation and SEPI, (link) Pfizor (link), Moderna (link). Along with the vaccine manufactures and other alliances.




	

Wuhan China

The Wuhan lab located in China has not and intends on not accepting responsibility of the virus outbreak. Although all origin cases where from the province.

GAVI- Website

Our Government is colluding and so are US health systems.  Health systems such as The National Institute for Health and John Hopkins have been hosting and administrating seminars. Published writings and studies and lectures have been held for the vaccine and the virus’s geographical spread. Agreements with colluders such as GAVI, The Vaccine Alliance had been giving vaccines to their supported 73 counties since 2018. Large funders who wish to stay anonyms such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

GAVI openly advertises large donors & marketing to large organizations governmental and nongovernmental with confidence.

  Notably (link), The Bill and Melinda Gate Foundation has continuously fueled the expansion of vaccines to these countries under best practiced health system authority.  This is a non-fiction book showing how the control of planned vaccination is to be emanate. It is laid out to rail road the mass population from the John Hopkins training mass seminar back in 2018 (link)

This is how it was coordinated and planned. If you want to find the evidence the proof is in the pudding. READ THE BOOK. Now what are we going to do?

Dr. McCullough

Dr. McCullough explains the variants are mutating at such a rapid rate the vaccines will not be a true form of immunity. Not one we can count on.

…..  It has all been organized. Sited and written clearly with the help of Dr. Peter McCullough wrote the introduction for, COVID-19 & The Global Predators: We Are The Prey.

“Dr. McCullough confirms that the omicron variant is the most heavily mutated version of SARS-COV2, with approximately 30 mutations along the spike and 10 in the binding receptor. He says, “it appears to have arisen from vaccinated individuals and so far it has exerted mild symptoms… and with this degree of mutation this will completely escape the effectiveness of the vaccine.” 

Dr. McCullough articulates the pandemic was planned for the vaccine.

H1N1 (Swine Flu) & SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)

H1N1 & COVID-19

Swine flu and COVID-19 have been repeatedly compared in the past few months, given that they’re both pandemics that sparked major panic across the world and in the United States. These two illnesses have a lot in common— signs, symptoms, and diagnoses but, -they’re just a little different. COVID-19 is definitely serious because it easily passable. COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) does not require an incubation time to pass.



Swine flu was the last major pandemic we had before COVID-19″

-Amesh A. Adalja, MD; senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.


Real Quick: What is the Swine Influenza, again?

Swine flu was a novel influenza (H1N1) a virus that emerged in the spring of 2009. Swine flu was detected first in the United States and then spread across the country; creating an epidemic, and eventually the world; creating a pandemic. It contained a blend of flu genes that hadn’t previously been documented in Russia. This virus was capable of jumping from animals (pigs) to humans. This was the first time humans could be susceptible to an animal virus.

H1N1 Note: After one year the virus went down another seasonal influenza strain. The United States was still suffering from the affects 2010. Many Americans hardly remember this flu. government and the CDC explained it would come back every year, as a reminder to get your flu shot.


The CDC says, COVI-19 (SARS-CoV-2) seems to spread more easily than flu. Also, COVID-19 can cause more serious illnesses in some people.

What do we know:  BOTH are influenza viruses

Swine flu (H1N1) – Passed by air droplets. A virus that was discovered to create a transmission from animal to human. Meaning a human could transmit it to a animal, this case a pig, but, an animal could not transmit to to a human. H1N1 virus can transmit humans from animals.

Virus life: 2009- still mutating.

COVID-19 ( SARS-CoV-2) – Passed by air droplets. A virus capable of passing human to human without incubation. Meaning the virus is passable without a temperature signs or symptoms. (This has not been possible before)
– This is possible for animals

Virus life: 2019- still mutating.


Treatment for BOTH viruses are the SAME? YES

Those include the following, per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA):

  • oseltamivir phosphate (Tamiflu)
  • zanamivir (Relenza)
  • peramivir (Rapivab)
  • baloxavir marboxil (Xofluza)

 COVID-19 has jumped the timescale. Weather it was done by accident or strategically we have seen an antigen that would have taken a thousand years to mutate; like COVID-19 influenza type, is capable of, in just 10 years. SARS-CoV-2 is serious because it has been proven to have been bio-engineered genetically modified. This type of rapid science is only known to happen under a microspore.


Bio- engineering Genetically modifying is something we have been doing for decades in the food, drug, and agriculture industries. The food industry improves yields such as cotton and corn and wheat. Herbicides and pesticides to prevent loss of crops due to insects. Also, shield from some freezing flashpoints. The drug and food Industry has worked together to create Lactose free dairy. Allowing individuals lactose free dairy and more digestible cheeses, yogurts and milks. The modification of our weather has improved our snow melt numbers. It ensures later crops irrigation in the later seasons and improvs climate temperature. Modification has been known to improve lives by offering people options and abundance.

But, Is It the right thing to do? And if we swing the pendulum the other way what kind of modification will we discover, for example, Teratology.



“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”

I’m Quitting & Moving On

I’m Quitting & Moving On

Anything worth achieving in life has a dip, Seth Godin, writer of The Dip explains how to quit.  There are two types of quitting says Seth. Strategic quitting and reactive quitting. Successful people are persons who strategically quit things in life. Making a conscious decision to take out what isn’t serving them and get out early. Reactive quitters tend to stay longer and quit in a moment of panic. By overwhelming circumstances or acute emotions.  Do you remember the infamous Vance Lombardy quote? Most likely found in a grade school classroom, written in Ariel font, pictured with a runner crossing the finish line,

  “Quitters never win, and winners never quit”.
– Vance Lombardy

That’s a terrible saying because winners quit all the time. Winners know when to strategically quit and they know when to stick through things.

If it’s worth doing there’s going to be dip.

Anything worth having will have a low. Hint, The Dip.  The book is named after it. Imagine drawing a line on a piece of paper and dipping down before you rise the pen stroke up. It isn’t intentional and almost inevitable. The book describes the dip as the meeting of beginners luck and real accomplishment. He also writes about how almost everything in life is controlled by the dip. Seth’s book has a way of bringing a new perspective to your lives paths the more you read.

 He helps you gain insight of your successes and failures. Helping you see the formula to real success and the pit falls of reactive choices.  You make decision every day. If you are past your dip and have not found success you might need to strategically quit or re-evaluate. You very well could be at a dead end. Dead ends can be found in a job, a relationship, or friendships anywhere a dip can be. It is good to always re-evaluate your choices and make necessary changes when they don’t align with your goals, growth & happiness.

There’s A Price to Pay When You Mess With Mother Nature

There’s A Price to Pay When You Mess With Mother Nature

“Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.”

Charles Dudley Warner; co-authored the novel The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today...

Weather Modification Inc.

Cloud seeding generators like the one in Wyoming are all over the United States. Let me walk you through how ground seeding operates and tell you a little about how it works. First cloud seeding is a way to generate additional precipitation from clouds in the form of rain or snow. It works through the introduction of tiny particles that create additional droplets or ice, thereby accelerating precipitation. This technology has been in use since 1942. It is utilized in dozens of countries around the world. Cloud seeding can be applied from the ground or the air. From the ground they are run remotely. A satellite modem grabs signal to start the process. It has a computer box that will turn on the generator which has a propane tank that turns on a burner. From there a temperature sensor will come on and start heating. This tells the solutions tank full of the seeding agent (insoluble; Silver Iodide) to pressurize the system.  This will release the agent into the atmosphere. There are nitrogen tanks that pressurize the solutions system so the agent can reach the height of twenty-five feet.

This allows the agent to the reach tower above and carry the plume of atomized chemical in the wind. It is a pretty straight-forward system. There are solar panels that re-charge the batteries that power the system. Weather modification can be found in many states. All you need is a permit through the National Environmental Agency. Currently eight states have a continuous permit and take advantage the technology known as cloud seeding.

States such as Texas (link), Colorado (link), Idaho (link), and Wyoming (link) are the largest continuous utilizers.

“Cloud seeding is not risk free”

What does cloud seeding actually involve, and does it have any adverse effects? Cloud seeding is not risk free. Based on the knowledge we have theoretically seeding is successful but, we have to be extremely cautious when disrupting Mother Nature. Geo engineering has its own impacts. What is known in textbooks the compound used in seeding called Silver iodide is harmful. The chemical is known to be toxic to humans, animals, and ocean eco systems particularly fish. Silver iodide is Insoluble. Meaning that it is incapable of being dissolved. What effects is this chemical having on our physical bodies, our livestock, and our plants? Have you ever wondered how in the 70’s everyone started to get skin cancer? Ever wonder why farmers are having to continuously change the chemicals/pesticides or why livestock inoculation and supplements are changed continuously?


It makes you consider your heath by extension. The rain water that comes from cloud seeding is collected in rivers, lakes and streams is used for drinking water. We know from chemical scientist, that the chemical used for seeding, Silver iodide, is toxic and must be handled with care. When ingested causes irritation of the digestive tract, called Chronic Ingestion. This basically means chronic poisoning is created through long- term/continuous exposure to the poison where symptoms do not occur immediately but over time. The toxicological properties of this substance claim to not be fully investigated. But, GE has independent and private studies that, I’m sure, reveal this information. Inhalation causes respiratory tract irritation. Most often these individual are placed on ventilators. Silver iodide targets your thyroid. (link).

This is what we know:


The chemicals are only handled by individuals who have been trained to handle it. Chemical scientist have proven through chemical law, compounds that are Insoluble are rarely insoluble. It is seldom for absolutely no solute to dissolve at all.


However, many substances are poorly soluble.  The soluble threshold is just high enough for silver iodide to pass in the 40’s. For example, very little silver chloride dissolves in water, so it is said to be insoluble in water. This is the same for silver iodide. Both chemicals are known to be used in cloud seeding under private contract that are privately regulated in the United States. Note a compound may be insoluble in one solvent yet fully miscible in another. Also, several factors affect solubility. One of the most important is temperature. Increasing temperature frequently improves the solubility.

There are studies that reflect silver iodide is soluble in heat. And if chronic inhalation or ingestion in heat happens known problems of kidney damage, stomach distress, headaches, and fatigue take place. The exact time between symptoms is unclear. The concept of heat in the body is the same as a burner or any external heat.

Your body’s resting internal temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.  Chew on this for a while, I’ll write more about the topic in another post. After all, this will be a nice segue into a deeper talk about health & exposure.


Silver Iodide– A chemical compound. Yellow insoluble powder that darkens on exposure to light. It is used in photography and artificial rainmaking.

   Insoluble– meaning (of a substance) incapable of being dissolved.

Standing so asleep, events I can’t escape
Lately, I just turn them into excuses.
Following the sun, asleep.
Lately, I just turn them into demons.
Always asleep when I am awake,
guess it’s just my rotten luck.

I see everything, I see everything,
but I can’t see above it.
Standing so asleep, events I can’t escape.
Lately, I just turn them into reasons.

Innocence was fleeting like a season,
Lost so many men.
Lately, all the ghosts turned into reasons,
and excuses.
Standing so asleep, events I can’t escape.
Following the sun, asleep.

PET Plastics Can Be Destroyed

PET Plastics Can Be Destroyed

Morgan Vague- TED Talk on her discovery

 Morgan Vague, was nominated for Time’s Person of the Year in 2019. Interested in microbiome, Vague discovered an enzyme that breaks down plastic. She perused her theory; The ability for bacteria to come up with food sources may have evolved to include plastic. Morgan, was right. This Texas native, was able to successfully isolate three strains of bacteria that consume polyethylene terephthalate better known as PET. The bacteria broke PET down into by-products that are harmless to humans and the environment. PET is one of the most commonly used plastics for consumer goods. PET is manufactured into bottles, clothing, plastic bags, and food packaging. This is an amazing discovery and goes a long way in protecting our environment.  Astounding thing is she discovered this back in 2017

Times discovered Morgan in 2018. Times Magazine is distributed in every major city. you can buy the Times at any grocery or convenient store. Times digital reach is even larger. Every week 20 million individuals tune to time.com for coverage. You can pay 19.99USD for a yearly digital subscription or 2.99USD per month.

She was able to successfully isolate three strains of bacteria that break down and consume PET plastic.

Discovering bacteria eating plastic didn’t win her the honor of the Time’s cover.

It is puzzling. Despite Time Magazine, Morgan hasn’t skipped a beat. As a Biologist she worked towards a large carbon system. Using her discovery this system would be designed to “eat” plastic on an industrial scale. The system would have a great impact on Americas plastic waste problem. Garbage floats in our oceans. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch a.k.a “The Garbage Patch” is our closest concern. This area spans form the West Coast of the Unites States to Japan. For scale, the garbage patch is more than twice the size of Texas.

2021 Where is Morgan vague now?
There have been many opportunities for Morgan after leaving Reed College. She is a Biologist who made a monumental discovery. She has spoke across the U.S. and around the world as an advocate for plastic solutions as a world conservationist. She is clever and resourceful. Now with an opportunity to make a real impact on the world.

Morgan Vague currently works as a Clinical Research Coordinator at Oregon Health and Science University School of Medicine. She has combined her love of scientific research with her passion for healthcare applications. In my personal option, it is not where I want her to be. Finland is the leader in cancer research. Her brilliant mind should be with others like hers. She is a bright and accomplished young lady and clearly has a passion to help the planet.


I hope that not winning the Time Magazine honor in 2019 didn’t influence her.


Her cause isn’t as flashy or note worthy as politics, economics, or diplomacy but, it has far greater practicality. After-all she discovered bacteria eating plastic, (THAT IS HUGE) And it can save more life than politics, economics, diplomacy , or stage one cancer research trials (current role.)

Great Pacific Garbage Patch

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a collection of marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean. Marine debris is litter that ends up in the ocean, seas, and other large bodies of water.


Albatross

The marine debris of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch can devastate marine life in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. The stomach contents of this unfortunate albatross include plastic marine debris fed to the chick by its parents.
