Parenting - 2015 in the UK
There was very distressing news in the Independent newspaper. Despite initiatives by government to provide pre-school classes and social workers, it seems more than half of the nation's five year old children begin school lacking the most basic skills.  For example being able to hold a pencil or communicate in comprehensible English. Poverty and cuts have been blamed, but how much does it

healthy diet and poverty
Unplugged from food corporations I've heard some alarming tales from friends who work with people trapped in poverty and debt. The worst cases, due to the tax and benefits nightmare orchestrated by successive governments, are all people working full-time. Usually, they are working so many hours that they find it difficult to make the best decisions about what to eat. Understandably, when

corporate politics - presidential auctions
I was tempted to title this 'Corporate Democracy', but that would be such a glaring oxymoron. It is frustrating to witness the 'relatively' poor people of the world beating each other to death over whether to vote for Trump or Clinton in the 2nd $billion + US presidential auction. Both candidates are representing corporate interests, and a system that is in debt to a handful of

An excellent book, and I hope it gives me a complete picture of what is really going on in the world of money and business, and the bloody corporate matrix.

corporate empathy - Walmart
Walmart now owns the UK supermarket Asda, and has celebrated their entry to UK retail by removing the charity collection boxes and foodbank collection points from its store. There is an outcry from the generally empathic British public, demanding that Walmart at least pretends to care for the needy and the hungry, but I've got a better idea. Shop somewhere else. There are plenty of British

global patriotism
The pathological wealth cult, their corporations, banks and puppet politicians use patriotism to dupe the majority into bombing each others' homes, infrastructure and families to death ... for profit. When they say patriotism, they mean nationalist patriotism - an accident of geography, past conquests and media driven cloning - that requires no positive attributes for membership. It's ironic

It calls for an end to the gender pay gap, compensation for unpaid care and the promotion of equal land

The Last Kingdom - and beyond
The BBC drama The Last Kingdom is a fine story: The 'Teutonic' tribes from Denmark are a totally male dominated race and perpetually at war. The Christians in Wessex promise a better lot for women, and peace, but the state is already corrupted by the power of those with the most land. A meritocracy it certainly is not. Add the Roman model of political organisation and bureaucracy and we

Individual freedom versus corporations
I asked my pal in Illinois why the area he lives is so sparsely populated and yet Chicago (the nearest very big city) is bursting at the seams: "They move to the city for jobs, but ... Even the city jobs are few. America isn't what the rest of the world envisions it to be any more. I just read an article recently which said Americans need to realize that the 'golden' age of America is over.

Vanished Kingdoms - The History of Half-Forgotten Europe
by Norman Davies This book, together with Norman Davies' major work Europe: A History (to follow; 1365 pages!) and The Shortest History of Europe by John Hirst are a prelude to my attempt to see where we are now, and why (to follow). This is a fascinating "story" of 15 states, 13 of which most people probably have never heard. But the most condensed wisdom (for me) comes in the introduction and

TTIP = corporate domination of governments
Imagine - there's a knock at your door and a group of shady characters show up with 100,000 pages of small print designed by corporate lawyers to further their interests. They ask you to sign it. You skim through the mountain of carefully orchestrated incomprehensible trickery and say "I fear we might one to make one or two amendments, if that's okay with you, sirs." What the hell is really

I'm three stone overweight (and rising) and it's causing problems."

Yesterday, there was a report published, based on a single study from the University of East Anglia, relating high protein diet to improved cardiovascular health.

In the most recent report, WHO funding was 80% from voluntary

Abstract: Evidence based dietary guidelines contrasted with corporate funded science and corporate funded advertising. It is a scientifically tested fact that - other factors such as exercise, genetics, habits being equal - people eating a diet rich in antioxidants suffer less from heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and the degenerative diseases associated with ageing. This has led to
