"It is quite true that republics only or occasionally, and as it were accidentally, select their wisest, or even the less incapable among the incapables, to govern them and legislate for them."

Albert Pike 1871

Apropos? ;-)

+Jordan Clymer and +Father Morpheus the rest of this section can be found  http://www.sacred-texts.com/mas/md/md03.htm down to pages 46-47. Both of your sides are covered almost poetically in the whole of that chapter. About page 45 is the start of the discussion at hand. Following through to the end of p. 48 (as far as I got last night) ties it together a bit. The observations by W.B. Pike, were astounding in 1871 when the book was written. with every page I find myself engrossed, but a little confused and need to re-read again. I think the writers goal was to initiate thought on the topic. Each chapter is a wordy explanation or almost thesis of each of the 32 degrees of the scottish rite. Some tin foil hat folks tout it as a satanic text, but I haven't found anything yet that would remotely suggest the idea. Then again, the spiritually based degrees are 5-14 so I've got a ways. Then it gets into industry, charity, and fellowship.

Okay, it has to be said. Attention band teachers and beginning trumpeters. C is NEVER a b flat. Stop teaching kids an open fingering on a trumpet is a C, because its not.

Perhaps. But I'd lean more towards crafted misrepresentation tho. Especially considering the form of a lodge his pretty well documented. Just more cowan crap :D I do enjoy hearing the crazy tho. The history channel thing they did years ago was pretty good, but like so much marketing the made sure to put a big fat "Or is that really all it is? dun dun duuuuuuuu" on the end of it.

We found one of these at a yard sale about a year ago, the like 38 quart one, its pretty big. Its a great canner. We've been weary about pressure canning, but just picked up a ball book. Were really looking forward to getting started actually using this beautiful piece of equipment. This was a super helpful addition to reading the directions.

+Nat Roth, if I had to wager a guess, the pressure cooker went out of favor probably with the advent of the microwave. Largely as a cooking device as I understand it. you get faster cook times, better flavor retention and they're just awesome. I'd liken it to the downfall of traditional barbers due to the invention of the personal disposable razor.

I really am impressed. and $10 for the 22qt caner, I couldn't pass it up. nice and straight. its missing one of the divider shelves tho. Should be easy enough to find one on the intertubes.

it is a good talk :D "paleo" as a buzzword bugs be more than it probably should. but I concur. as humans we're built to eat everything, yet be highly adaptable. And while I may be a smaller person, but I've become interested in fitness and nutrition in an effort to improve my fitness level and quality of life. I'm baffled by how much bullshit is proclaimed as scientific gospel. A little anatomy and basic biology would quickly dispel many of these myths but alas, "that's like work"

Ahh. So it's actually kind of a regional thing. The G is also found in some parts of Europe, but for non English speaking countries the G doesn't hold much meaning regionally. But yeah. If I had a secret society I probably wouldn't put a sign on my building :D

This is a really good read. Thanks +Ryan .
 
18% of people are following a food trend. Within that 18%, there are two groups: a group of people who have a psychosomatic illness, and smaller group who are sick, but empirically not adversely affected by gluten.

Before this study, there was a single study containing evidence that gluten restriction might help some people with persistent bowel disorders.

After this study, there is no longer any scientific evidence that gluten -- the actual protein -- adversely affects people who do not have celiac disease. The studies demonstrating otherwise come from both ends: both gluten trials against people who think they are gluten-sensitive, and gluten-free trials against people who have bowel disorders of no specific etiology. When the amount of gluten they ingest changes, former group don't deteriorate, and the latter group don't improve.

Of the people whose lives appear to be improved by glute-free diets, the consensus position is that their gut flora are responding to indigestible sugars common to grains and other foods: the fructans in wheat and rye could be the reason that gluten-restriction appears to help those people. This research substantially predates the gluten-free fad: there's plenty of solid empirical evidence, going back twenty years, that cutting FODMAPs helps people with a wide spectrum of bowel disorders.

If this is the case, the people to whom Whole Foods has marketed illness-as-lifestyle-choice are likely to be made ill by unrelated things like artichokes, eggplant, and mushrooms. For those people, gluten-free diets are a stopgap: for instance, spelt (which makes perfectly fine bread) has lots of gluten and very small quantities of fructans; artichokes contain large quantities of fructans  and no gluten.

As long as people keep insisting that the explanation is gluten, and as long as the evidence continues being contrary, a substantial number of people who are sick will never get any better. This is the problem with letting marketing get out ahead of the research.

It's made me open up and try various grains that are available, and experiment with the plethora of available textures and flavors in alternative grains/flours. I found out teff makes me like super sick. Tried it twice, threw up, and it's supposed to be a super nutritionally complete grain. I do agree tho, that some people may be sensitive to the other compounds which may exist within wheat. But I've always been suspect of gluten being detrimental to what seems like %80 of the people I know.

poor-fair should not be an option. It has only been poor. My spouse has been trying to work with this company for a year now. They do not return calls. They have not upheld their end of the contract. She has paid the monthly fee like clockwork yet she has never been able to process a single credit card at the salon she works in. When she has called to have the issue resolved she has been met with resistance and even threats about the 3 year contract. This is a 2 way contract and not once has this institution held up their end of the contract. If I am not mistaken taking money for a service or product, then not providing it constitutes theft. If the company would make an effort to resolve the issue or work with her then it would not be a problem. But every attempt to receive any amount of customer service has resulted in threats and even being ignored. Spend your money somewhere else. This company is criminal.
