Free Download: Edward Bernays, “Propaganda” http://rgn.bz/Ewvc

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” - Edward Bernays, “Propaganda”

“Bernays’ honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies.” - Noam Chomsky

“Edward Louis Bernays (November 22, 1891 – March 9, 1995) nephew of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, was considered the father of the field of public relations. Combining the ideas of Gustave LeBon and Wilfred Trotter on Crowd psychology with the Psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Sigmund Freud, Bernays was one of the first to attempt to manipulate public opinion using the psychology of the subconscious. He felt this manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of the ‘herd instinct’ that Trotter had described.

Bernays pioneered the scientific technique of shaping and manipulating public opinion, which he famously dubbed “engineering of consent.” During World War I, he was an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information (CPI), a powerful propaganda apparatus that was mobilized to package, advertise and sell the war to the American people as one that would “Make the World Safe for Democracy.” The CPI would become the blueprint in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon.

Another Code Shrouded Behind DNA? http://rgn.bz/09kk

Theoretical physicists have confirmed that it’s not just the information coded into our DNA that shapes who we are – it’s also the way DNA folds itself that controls which genes are expressed inside our bodies.

That’s something biologists have known for years, and they’ve even been able to figure out some of the proteins responsible for folding up DNA. But now a group of physicists have been able to demonstrate for the first time through simulations how this hidden information controls our evolution.

Let’s back up for a second here, because although it’s not necessarily news to many scientists, this second level of DNA information might not be something you’re familiar with.

Reasons Why Turmeric May Be the World’s Most Important Herb http://rgn.bz/ec9X

Medicinal herbs, such as Turmeric, promote healing and have been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese, Indian and Ayurvedic medicine.

Turmeric is widely used in Indian cuisine and is responsible for the yellow color of curries. Research shows that elderly villagers in India, who consume turmeric daily, have some of the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s disease.

A member of the ginger family, brightly colored turmeric was first cultivated in the Himalayan region as early as 3000 B.C.

Former Federal Reserve Chairman: global economy is headed for disaster http://rgn.bz/fOdm

In a recent interview with Fox Business, Alan Greenspan pulled no punches on the state of the economy.

The former Federal Reserve Chairman believes that the United States and Europe are set to face some serious economic problems, saying that we have “a global problem of a shortage in productivity growth.”

One of the major problems is that the aging population that is retiring is entitled to Social Security money; however with the economy’s inability to produce goods and services efficiently, the shortage in resources to meet these obligations is growing by the day.

According to Greenspan:

“Entitlements are crowding out savings and hence, capital investment. Capital investment is the critical issue in productivity growth and productivity growth in turn is the crucial issue in economic growth.”

Rather than a short-term economic problem — like a temporary recession — this is a systemic issue that will be almost impossible to paper over without serious consequences.

Greenspan believes that governments are going to be confronted by another major financial crisis as economies struggle to pay for entitlement programs. Just picture what’s currently going on in Venezuela – but on a global scale.
