On Live TV BBC Journalist Shows Coca-Cola President How Much Sugar Is In Their Drink

We consume so much sugar  that’s not even real, natural or organic, and is probably one of the worst possible things we can eat. It has a number of detrimental health effects that include diabetes and cancer, just to name a few.

It became popular in the United States in the late 1970’s because it was a much cheaper alternative to regular cane sugar. On average we are consuming 27 teaspoons of sugar per day, while the recommended daily allowance from the American Heart Association is no more than six teaspoons a day for the average woman and no more than nine for the average male. Why are we consuming so much sugar? And why exactly is sugar added into almost everything we eat?

It’s no secret that junk food is designed to be addictive, and that the sugar within it literally kills you.

A recent UCLA study determined that it is also lowering our IQ. You can read more about that here. Another study found it to be just as addictive as heroin, you can read more about that here.

In the video below, BBC journalist Paxman shows a Coca-Cola boss just how much sugar is in their drink. It’s quite entertaining, given the fact that there is absolutely no justification for just how much sugar they put into their

You Still Have A Choice

Our world is full of harmful substances that we constantly consume on a daily basis. It’s hard to believe that these substances (like coke) are mass marketed and made to be heavily addictive. The Coca-Cola corporation is promoting sickness, and the dumbing down of society. How any human being can promote something that kills us is very confusing to me.

At the end of the day, regardless of how addicting and harmful they are, you still have a choice not to consume it. You have to be the change. These corporations hold no power, the power lies within all of us. Without us, there is no them.

Akai Professional (akaipro.com), a leading innovator of music performance and production equipment, announces three new Ableton Live controllers— the APC40 mkII, APC Key 25, and APC mini.

After 126 Years Of Anonymity, Infamous Serial Killer Jack The Ripper Has Finally Been Unmasked

After 126 Years Of Anonymity, Infamous Serial Killer Jack The Ripper Has Finally Been Unmasked

2014-09-08_0916-690x330
 For 126 years, the identity behind London’s most vicious serial killer, Jack the Ripper, was a mystery. However, thanks to breakthrough DNA testing technology, we can finally add a name and a face to the madman.

From the Mirror:

The true identity of notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper can now be revealed thanks to a DNA breakthrough, it has been claimed.

 

Author and self confessed “armchair detective” Russell Edwards  claims to have solved perhaps the most notorious whodunit ever.

 

Mr Edwards claims Aaron Kosminski, a 23 year-old Polish immigrant who ended up dying in an asylum, was “definitely, categorically and absolutely” the man behind the grisly killing spree in 1888 in London’s East End.

The smoking gun was discovered when Edwards purchased a bloodstained shawl at an auction that belonged to one of Jack the Ripper’s victims.

The shawl ended up having some of Kosminski’s blood on it as well, and DNA analysis led to the major discovery.

Jack the Ripper was one of England’s most barbaric serial killers. He butchered five women within a three month period and was allegedly responsible for thirteen other murders, although the Ripper was never caught for his acts. His legend lived on through books and movies.

In addition, Edwards’ fascination with trying to track down the identity of Jack the Ripper came from watching Hollywood star Johnny Depp’s film In Hell. In the film, Depp plays a detective trying to crack the case of Jack the Ripper.

If Kosminksi is the man behind the mask, it’s an interesting find to say the least, and here’s why:

  • The only time Kosminksi allegedly showed a violent side was when he once picked up a chair and tried to hit someone with it.
  • Records of Kosminski made it clear that he wasn’t a danger to others.
  • He was documented as a “harmless imbecile.”

It appears now that was all an act, and Kosminski may have eluded the Sherlock Holmes of his time. However, with the technologies we now use to fight crime in the 21st century, his cunning and wit didn’t stand a chance.

Kim Kardashian Hints At Sex Tape With Kanye

Kim Kardashian Hints At Sex Tape With Kanye

kimye-green

Kim Kardashian is “famous all off a home movie” as per her husband Kanye West‘s “Clique” verse, and he isn’t far from the truth. After her naked escapades with her ex-boyfriend, Ray J, hit the internet in 2007, there was no looking back for the current Keeping Up With The Kardashians star. She’s since then become a business in and of herself, and now that she’s teamed up with the rapper/producer of the decade, her empire is pretty much infallible.

So, she didn’t really hesitate to not rule out the fact that she and Kanye may have got in front of the camera in Ray J/Kim K fashion. An excerpt from her conversation with British GQ after garnering Woman Of The Year honors last week:

Listen it was years ago,” she said. “I was 22 years old. You know when you are young you do things with your boyfriend. Back then, I didn’t think making a sex tape was even that scandalous. He was my boyfriend of years and years. Lots of people I know have done it and are doing it.

My husband Kanye and I have an amazing sex life,” Kardashian said. “So far as the sex tape is concerned, whether or not we’ve made another … If we have, it’s never something I want to go public. I never want to make the same mistake twice. You do these sorts of things with people you trust. When someone says to me, ‘sex tape,’ it’s a very private thing, not something I would ever want anyone else to see but me and Kanye.

I am married to an incredible man and let’s just say we do like to have fun. “Have we made another? There’s nothing wrong with being adventurous, having fun and experimenting, but there’s definitely the right sort of person you should surround yourself with. Kanye and I have a very good sex life. What we do privately is private. I think let’s just leave it at that.

Russell Brand goes in on Fox News Who’s More Dangerous?

fox

Fox News really go for it in this video trying their best to attack Russell Brand devoting an entire show to ”attempting’ to tear apart his character on a very personal level.

Russell’s response is excellent and highlights some real issues that we should be thinking about . . . The fact Fox News devote so much time to simply trying to attack Russell Brand is very telling , is this really news?

Aren’t there more important things they can talk about on mainstream media.?

At least in these videos Russell does talk about many issues that affect us all and need our attention so if Fox News is helping bringing attention to these matters through Russell Brand then ironically they are actually achieving some good for a change.

The ongoing media war between Russell Brand and Fox News has been going viral across social media, in this article I tell you why I think he is the best thing to have ever happened to Fox News and I show you every interview and battle over the past year which will allow you to make an informed decision about who is promoting hate and who is promoting oneness and peace. ~ Kasim Khan

Suge Knight’s First Interview Since Shooting “I Don’t Care Who Shot Me”

Suge Knight’s First Interview Since Shooting “I Don’t Care Who Shot Me”

article-0-20FE6B3300000578-326_634x532

  • Music mogul, 49, was attacked nine days ago at party in an LA nightclub
  • Suge Knight shot five times in torso and once in the arm during attack
  • Has now revealed photos of his damaged torso, including surgical wound
  • Doctors were forced to operate on musician to check for organ damage

Suge Knight has released graphic photos of his injured torso following an attack at a VMA pre-party in which he was shot six times.

In one of the pictures five bullets holes can be seen in the rapper’s back along with a large surgical wound where doctors opened him up to check for organ damage.

In another picture the sixth wound, on the 49-year-old’s arm near his tattoo commemorating Tupac, is visible after being stuffed with gauze.

Fortunately surgeons say none of his organs were harmed during the assault, according to TMZ.

Knight returned home from hospital on Wednesday as reports surfaced that investigators are  looking at several ‘people of interest’ whose names or street monikers had come up in interviews, the New York Daily News reported.

The images were released a week after investigators said footage taken inside the LA nightclub where the attack took place shows Knight was targeted by the gunman.

Knight, 49, was shot at an album release party hosted by Chris Brown at 1Oak in West Hollywood in the early hours of Sunday.

Two others, including 19-year-old model Megan Hawkins, were shot at the pre-VMA party and all three were rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

‘Video shows the suspect with a handgun firing at Knight [and] striking the two other victims who were in his vicinity,’ Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. John Corina told CBSLA.

After firing, the suspect started running for the exits alongside partygoers.

Corina added that he did not know if the two other victims, Hawkins and a 33-year-old man, were targeted. All three victims were expected to recover, authorities said.

Other video taken outside the club apparent show the music producer being led to a waiting police car by an armed officer as an ambulance arrives at the scene.

Sources claim he calmly walked outside and asked a cop for help before he was rushed to hospital.

Roads around the nightclub were immediately sealed off by police, as the nightclub was evacuated, with several partygoers detained for questioning.

On Monday, Knight’s family issued a statement which read: ‘The family of Suge Knight asks that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media.

‘Suge is currently resting and has lost a lot of blood, he’s human. He’s done a lot of things for the community and the culture as a whole so we ask that you respect that.’

Knight, the co-founder of Death Row Records with Dr. Dre and the rapper The D.O.C., is no stranger to the effects of gun violence.

His friend Tupac Shakur was shot multiple times during a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996 – although during a previous visit to 1OAK, Knight told reporters that no one had ever been charged with Shakur’s murder because he wasn’t really dead, and was instead living on an island.

Knight also suffered a gunshot wound to the leg during a shooting at a 2005 pre-VMA party, hosted by rapper Kanye West.

In the moments after the gunfire, Brown was seen climbing onto a bar in the nightclub, apparently angrily remonstrating with other clubgoers as a bouncer told them to ‘Get down’.

At around 5:45 a.m. LA time, Brown tweeted about the incident.

‘It’s disappointing that we as a society can#t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullsh*t!!!’ he tweeted.

The Los Angeles branch of 1OAK – which stands for One Of A Kind – is a spin off of the New York club, while there are further branches in Las Vegas and Mexico City.

The club, which bills itself as ‘Bringing a New York nightclub experience to Los Angeles’ has been open on the famous Sunset Strip since the start of the year and has proved popular with many celebrities, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Rihanna.

ICE BUCKET FRAUD: ALS FOUNDATION ADMITS THAT 73% OF DONATIONS ARE NOT USED FOR ALS RESEARCH

ICE BUCKET FRAUD: ALS FOUNDATION ADMITS THAT 73% OF DONATIONS ARE NOT USED FOR ALS RESEARCH

reidtara2

We’ve been duped. America is filled with fun-loving and caring people. The viral ice bucket challenge has combined both our sense of responsibility to our fellow human with fun. And it has been fun! Who didn’t love seeing Sarah Palin doused?

But wait? Ice Bucket Challenge donations are nearing $100 MILLION. Where is that money going?

According to the ALS Foundation, not towards ALS.

Over 73% of all donations raised are going to fundraising, overhead, executive salaries, and external donations. Less than 27% is actually used for the purpose we donated for.

According to the ECFA, a charitable watchdog, 27% of donations actually making it to the cause they are donated to is unacceptable. In fact, the ECFA won’t deem a non-profit as a reliable charity unless at least 80% of donations make it to their intended projects.

Here’s the breakdown of the ALS Foundation’s Financials:

Employee salaries at the ALS Foundation are out-of-this-WORLD!

  • Jane H. Gilbert – President and CEO –$339,475.00
  • Daniel M. Reznikov – Chief Financial Officer – $201,260.00
  • Steve Gibson – Chief Public Policy Officer – $182,862.00
  • Kimberly Maginnis -Chief of Care Services Officer – $160,646.00
  • Lance Slaughter -Chief Chapter Relations and Development Officer – $152,692.00
  • Michelle Keegan – Chief Development Officer – $178,744.00
  • John Applegate – Association Finance Officer – $118.726.00
  • David Moses – Director of Planned Giving – $112,509.00
  • Carrie Munk – Chief Communications and Marketing Officer – $142,875.00
  • Patrick Wildman – Director of Public Policy – $112,358.00
  • Kathi Kromer – Director of State Advocacy – $110,661.00

The ALS Foundation is a terrible organization to send your money.

If you decide to take the Ice Bucket Challenge, may I humbly suggest that you select a well-researched charity (on your own, no endorsements here) and send it to them.
