Have a read of the attached article. These people are now finding that there is a major link between these 2 conditions, something I’ve been saying forever. What they need to recognize is that these are not diseases in themselves but symptoms of a broader condition that gives rise to other conditions as well (hypertension, sexual dysfunction, heart disease). I call this disease Chronic Metabolic Collapse Syndrome and have written on it at least 10 years ago. We will never be able to fully deal with chronic non-communicable diseases (NCD’s) until we recognize this underlying truth.

The old business methods need revamping

Opinion - commentary -analysisI live in a country where people do two things very well; they complain a lot and they point fingers at everyone who just happens to be the source of some disappointment. This past month I have been hearing complaints about the state of the economy. Many in the business community say that business is down.

What that means is that the businesses are not getting enough of the people’s money. They say that the people are just not buying because they do not have money. This set me thinking about the people who support these businesses.

The closer the dot is to the center line, the tighter the race. And the wider the bar, the less certain the model is about the outcome.

  • It’s all about the 538 Electoral College votes
  • Who’s winning the popular vote
