Have you ever received a unsolicitated email in your inbox or junk folder from a stranger that he / she can offer loan for interest rates as low as 2% and without any guarantee or documentation?
Well its fraud and never reply to such emails.
Lately scammers have been using this new method of duping people. They will offer easy online loans. Ask you for your personal information , send you some forms to fill up, then they will email you some official documents attested by notory or the government office in order to convince you that the company offering loan is real. Eventually they will ask you to transfer a small fee of $250 or even $100 to their bank or by western union. Thats all that they intend to do, therefore dont ever fall into such trap.
I have also come across some scammers posting to offer loans or business finance on websites like Quikr, Olx, India classifieds and some others.
Their email ids are very funny and one can easily tell that they are scammers.
Imagine a reputed bank having such kind of email ids…lol
Banks and financial institutions will always have an official email id and not some examples as given above.
However, its always better to visit the banks or financial institutions in your area to check the criteria to avail loans, you cant get loans online from strangers and people who you dont meet personally.
The scammers posting advertisements on Quikr & Olx will also give you the mobile numbers from India or your own country in order to convince you that they are existing in your country.
The names of the company which they provide is also fake and fictional. You will never be able to locate this company.

I was in half mind to see this movie with two average actors in lead roles. However, I was not disappointed even 1% to watch this movie. Riteish does a wonderful job and Tusshar supports him well. At times Tusshar struggles a bit during emotional scenes, it seems that he doesn’t fit well to do emotional scenes but yet he offers his best to do the scene. ( Tusshar needs to work more on his acting skills, he has great room for improvement )
I read the review a day before in several leading newspapers and the critics didn’t quite rate it well, but Ekta Kapoor has lived up to her expectations and didn’t allow the movie to go overboard in its end with chase sequence, unrealistic boring fight scenes and extended dialogues. The movie starts well on a very high energy and ends in smooth manner. The entire movie is laughter riot.
These days people have enough stress in their lives throughout the day and don’t want to go to a movie theater to get stressed, but to relieve stress and feel good. Thats what KSKHH warranties its audience. Its “Paisa vasool” movie, a movie which doesn’t disappoint its viewers. I wish I had ten mouths while watching this movie so that I could blow whistle with five and laugh out loud with the other five. I declare that this movie tickled every rib and flesh of my body.
The background score and the songs are also living up higher then expected and I could only hear whistles and screams from the frenzied crowd. Although one cant see this movie with their family due to all its double meaning dialogues, but the one can for sure only catch the good meanings and overlook the double meaning in it.
This movie is a complete entertainer and stress buster.
Its a movie one will discuss about its dialogue for another couple of weeks with their friends and in future can buy a DVD so that whenever one feels gloomy they can watch it again to feel happy.
Some quick notes about the movie:-
Keeps the attention of the audience at all times, we expect whats next.
Very youthful dialogues.
Straight, Gay, Lesbian, drug addicts, alcoholics, dogs and other animals can all enjoy this movie.
Tusshar has worked hard on his physique and I appreciate him.
Retiesh is the key ( so is Sakru the dog ).
Anupam Kher always the best.
The female leads have done good job as well.
Music and songs are excellent.
Goa looks great, makes on feel, must go to Goa again.
You will watch the movie right till the end credits roll down.
I have said many times that the Libyan public wealth is being plundered by NATO and its mercenaries, now the truth is slowly coming out, even by lying tongues NATO regime in Libya. THE Central Bank of Libya is close to bankruptcy according to Mohammed NATO Spokesman al-Harizi regime, said that billions are being scammed by dedólares mercenaries from NATO, but refused to speak of states criminals who also looted billions of dollars of foreign exchange reserves of Libya.
The truth can no longer hide, once a free nation, without debt, poverty, free education, free housing, free water, free medical care, perfect stability … delivered to a state broken, damaged and without law, all thanks to NATO and its mercenaries ..
Only God knows the future of Libya under NATO, but the moment it looks very bleak.
“All that glitters is not gold and all that promise will never come true”
Thousands of people from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the other developing countries dream about securing a dream job in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. This tiny Sheikdom in Middle east surrounded by the oil rich other Sheikdoms is known for its lavish lifestyle and high-rise modern building and futuristic infrastructure. It lures many people across the world to have an exciting career. Indeed few people do make it to the top and make their future, but the majority of the people will end up disappointed with its exploitation and manipulations by the employers. Unskilled and semi-skilled workers are the most affected and live a life of a bonded slave. However, over 80% of the workforce consists of these unskilled and semi-skilled workers. They live in cramped porta cabins or rooms sharing space with 10 to 15 other workers with unhygienic conditions.
The discrimination levels are very high in UAE. Arabs and Muslims will always be favored against others.
Its not surprising that if you are a non-Arab your junior will get more salary than you and better living conditions provided by the employer. Even the yearly salary hikes will be better for Arabs as compared with the non-Arabs.
If exploited laborers protest or strike against their employers then they are faced with arrests and deportation. These laborers pay almost $1000 to $2000 USD to the employments agency in their country to seek job in gulf, but these workers are hardly able to recover that amount even after two years of continuous employment. The workers are paid min AED 400 to AED 800 ( $109 to $218 per month salary ). They work for minimum 12 hours everyday and most of the time the employers will not pay overtime wages for work done more than 12 hours. The worst situation is of the female housemaids. They work almost 24/7 and will be paid approximately $250 per month and have to undergo harsh living conditions and torture. These expatriate workers dont have any choice as their consulates will not fight for them if any case registered and even before any complaint can be lodged the workers will get deported. Furthermore, these workers come from third world countries and live in a state of poverty back home, they dont have much choices and eventually have to face the hardships of Dubai life.
Virat Kohli’s brilliant knock does it again for India. The kind of skills and composure displayed in the innings against Pakistan was one of the best I have seen any batsman do that for his country.
Well there are several websites, news channels and news papers covering everything in terms of grammar and composition and phrases and comparison of Virat Kohli. Mostly they all praise him like the next cricketing God and compare him with Sachin Tendulkar and other great batsmen of last two centuries.
I guess comparing Virat with some other batsmen is the worst possible idea to do so. I have seen many talented young players being compared to other great players and mess up their career even before it could take off. Virat must have hos own identity and not get into the paradigm of getting such comparisons and lose his own focus. Virat has not reached that level of success just because of that comparisons but to his own powerful magnitude of cricketing skills combined with hard work and concentration, not to overlook the confidence that he displays. I have not seen a cricketer in Indian side recently like his ability which he displays.
Just like Sachin Tendulkar should not be compared to Sir Don Bradman, so should Virat never be compared with Sachin.
Each player is good for its time period and for the intensity of the cricket which the specific period of time requires sportsmen to unleash their potential.
Just a short advice to Virat – He should play his natural game and be Virat Kohli himself, not to get carried away with the hype of media and others , but to be humble and let his bat do the talking.
Well played Virat
I heard Saban Bajromovic on Claude Challe’s 3 CD Album “Just Good Music” on Just Vibe CD and I had to repeatedly listen to “Pena” from Saban Bajramovic. His style was very unique and the music very heart touching. I had never heard about Saban before that. It was love at first sight with his music and after few days I did some search on Youtube and found another song from Saban very inspiring with Mostar Sevdah Reunion. Mostar adds that extra flavour to the voice of Saban doing great justice to this legendary singer by composing some enigmatic and heart throbbing music full of pulsating drums and awe-inspiring trumpet style in Gypsy way.
He was born in Niš where he attended primary school for only the first four years. On quitting school, he picked up his musical education on the street.
When he was 19 he ran away from the army out of love for a girl. As a deserter, he was sentenced to three years prison on the island Goli otok, but as he told the military court they could not hold him for so long as he could survive, they raised his punishment to five and a half years. He survived as he was a good goalkeeper in the prison football team. Because of his nimbleness and speed, they called him “Black Panther”. Soon he forced his way into the prison orchestra that played, among other things, jazz (mostly Louis Armstrong, Sinatra, and sometimes John Coltrane) with Spanish and Mexican pieces.
After Goli otok, his intensive music career began. He made his first record in 1964. He is believed to have composed 650 compositions.
In 2008, it was revealed that Bajramović was living impoverished in Niš with serious health complications and was no longer able to walk. The government of Serbia intervened to provide him with some funds, 10 000 euros.He died in Niš on June 8, 2008, from a heart attack.
Indeed Saban is indeed an iconic figure in NIS and a great Roma singer.

Following an emergency visit to an intensive care unit, yoga teacher Barbara Benagh pledged to beat her asthma. After extensive research, she discovered the key to overcoming asthma is retraining the breath.
By Barbara Benagh
It’s the middle of the night. Suddenly you’re wide awake, suffocating, gasping for air but unable to catch your breath. The whole world seems to be closing in around your throat and chest. The urgency to breathe that woke you in the first place is rapidly giving way to panic. You’re having an asthma attack.
For millions of Americans, this is an all-too-frequent occurrence, a nightmare that can’t be fully appreciated by those without the disorder. That was certainly true for me. Until late 1987 I had never given asthma much thought. Then I had a bout with viral pneumonia. Even after I recovered, a nagging cough lingered. The cough became chronic and, after several months, so did periods of breathlessness. After one particularly anxious episode, I went to the doctor. She diagnosed my problem as asthma.
Asthma comes from the Greek word for “panting.” My doctor described it as a reversible, chronic lung disease characterized by coughing, wheezing, and inflamed airways. Though asthmatics always have some degree of inflammation, an asthma attack or “flare” occurs when some trigger provokes increased swelling, mucus production, coughing, and a tightening of the smooth muscle around the airways. As airways close, breathing becomes shallow, fast, and difficult. Symptoms can be mild, severe, or even fatal. This is the clinical explanation, but it hardly conveys the terror of an experience that leaves even the strongest person feeling out of control and helpless.
Upon my doctor’s diagnosis, I became one of the 17 million asthma sufferers in America. Figures from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services are sobering: Six percent of children under 5 have asthma (a 160 percent increase since 1980), and older children miss 10 million school days each year. Asthma accounted for nearly 2 million emergency room visits last year; more than $6 billion was spent on asthma care. According to the World Health Organization, the situation isn’t much better throughout the industrialized world. In Australia, for instance, at least one in eight children has asthma. Annually, there are more than 180,000 deaths worldwide from the condition, and asthma seems to have become a more serious disease in recent years. Researchers are scrambling to figure out why.
Pollution is often cited as a cause, and with good reason: Airborne and environmental pollutants can trigger asthma attacks. But studies show pollution can’t bear sole blame for the epidemic. Even where pollution rates are declining, asthma incidence continues its upward climb.
Other scientists theorize that perhaps we are too clean. Researchers at Columbia University are trying to determine if the important sensitization of the immune system that should take place early in life has been reduced by modern hygiene, leading to later hyperactive immune reactions that contribute to the occurrence of asthma.
Especially intriguing is the recent theory that the very drugs that revolutionized asthma care may be partly responsible for the increase in overall incidence, and especially for the growing mortality rate. This hypothesis is particularly compelling since the current epidemic indeed began at about the same time modern asthma drugs went on the market.
Treatments for Better or Worse
Successful treatments for asthma have always been elusive. Remedies changed little through the ages and have included herbal tinctures, relocation to arid climates and, believe it or not, smoking tobacco and cannabis. With the development of bronchodilators or “rescue” inhalers during the 1960s, everything changed. These beta-agonist drugs (the most popular is albuterol) bring rapid relief from the most common symptoms of asthma. Airways quickly reopen, wheezing stops, and mucus clears. This lets the asthmatic relax and breathe more easily. These sprays seemed to be the big breakthrough that would banish asthma forever, but they have a downside. Many asthmatics overuse their inhalers. Though doctors warn against this, it’s easy to see how such a pattern develops. People are less likely to avoid the situations that trigger asthma attacks if they know a puff or two from an inhaler will magically banish their symptoms. Inhaler overuse can also mask a silent increase in chronic airway inflammation, giving asthmatics a blunted perception of how severe their asthma is, so that they put off getting further treatment until they have a real crisis. According to the Canadian Respiratory Journal (July/Aug 98), “regular use of short-term beta-agonists as maintenance therapy for chronic asthma is no longer recommended.” Articles in several other prominent medical journals have also documented that even normal use of albuterol eventually worsens asthma. In other words, while inhalers relieve symptoms in the short term, in the long run they contribute to an overall increase in the frequency and severity of attacks.
Doctors now recognize the limits of rescue inhalers and often recommend the use of newer drugs, primarily corticosteroids, which treat an asthmatic’s chronic inflammation. With the development of these anti-inflammatories, medical treatment of asthma has entered a new era. Prednisone, the most popular of these drugs, is now the last line of defense against asthma and has saved many lives, including my own. Regular use can reduce the need for bronchodilators and prevent asthma attacks. However, prednisone is a potent drug with severe adverse effects that can include dependence, hormonal changes, weight gain, glaucoma, and severe bone loss. With long-term use a person can be affected by problems more crippling than asthma itself.
Every Breath You Take
Like 90 percent of diagnosed asthmatics, I relied upon popular medications, using a combination of inhalers and prednisone to prevent and relieve symptoms. I also tried a number of alternative therapies like herbs, acupuncture, and dietary supplements, which were of some help. I was vigilant about avoiding the common triggers of asthma attacks. But none of these strategies provided long-term relief from my symptoms, nor did they free me from drugs and hospital visits, which came to average about five a year.
Most perplexing, the pranayama techniques that I had practiced for years, and that I thought would help me, actually triggered symptoms (especially those exercises which emphasized the inhalation or its retention). Later I would understand why, but at the time I felt helpless. I was afraid to take less medicine, as my situation was deteriorating.
Then, in late 1995, it happened. Two days after coming down with the flu, I went into respiratory failure and spent the next three days unconscious in intensive care on a respirator. Later I was told I nearly died.
During my long recuperation I had ample time to contemplate my predicament. I had to come to terms with the fact that the medicines I had been taking were no longer helping me. I knew my asthma was severe enough to be fatal, and might be unless I took proactive steps to improve my circumstances. I had to find something new.
A question had nagged at me ever since I was first diagnosed. What change had occurred in me that now caused me to react so severely to triggers that, in the past, were harmless? I think this is a relevant question whether one has had asthma a few months or for years. What is going on inside this particular body, right now, that causes me to have asthma?
It is so easy to define asthma by its symptoms. The majority of treatments, in both allopathic and complementary medicine, are designed to alleviate those symptoms. However, symptoms are not the cause of asthma, and I knew from years of practicing and teaching yoga that treating symptoms without considering the whole person seldom solves the underlying problem. So I set out to learn why certain triggers cause the body to react with an asthma attack.
As I read everything I could find about asthma, I was intrigued to discover that several prominent experts on breathing, including Dr. Gay Hendricks, author of Conscious Breathing (Bantam, 1995), and Dr. Konstantin Buteyko, a pioneer in the use of breath retraining for asthmatics, consider the malady to be more a disturbed breathing pattern than a disease. I began to wonder if my breathing patterns had been so thrown out of sync by the stress of coping with pneumonia that the changes had become chronic. Of course, I was acutely aware that my breathing was disturbed when I was having an asthma attack; now I began to consider the possibility that my breathing might be significantly disturbed even when I had no symptoms. Was it possible that my disordered breathing was actually a cause of my asthma and was perpetuating it? Could it also be that disordered breathing was sabotaging my attempts to help myself through pranayama? Not only did these ideas help me to make sense of my condition, they also gave me hope. If the way I breathed was causing my asthma, then retraining my breath might alleviate my problems. Excited by this prospect, I dived into learning more about how the body breathes.
Respiration, like other essential bodily functions, is involuntary. Our bodies are programmed from birth to perform these functions automatically, without having to think about them. Respiration is unique, however, since it can be voluntarily modified by the average person. This capability is the basis for breathing techniques that have been part of the yoga tradition for thousands of years. For asthmatics, these techniques can be the foundation for a program of breath retraining that can help them manage their disorder.
Breathing is ideally a process of maximum efficiency with minimum effort. Its efficiency depends on the correct functioning of the diaphragm, a strong sheet of muscle that separates the heart and lungs from the abdomen. Each breath starts in response to a message from the respiratory center in the brain which causes the diaphragm to activate. It flattens into a disc, making the lower ribs swing out and thus increasing the volume of the chest cavity. The lungs follow this expansion, creating a partial vacuum that pulls air into the lower lungs, much like a bellows.
When we exhale, the diaphragm simply relaxes. The lungs have a natural recoil that allows them to shrink back to their regular size and expel air. The abdominal muscles and muscles of the rib cage can enhance this process, but it is the release of the diaphragm and the recoil of the lungs that are the crucial elements in the exhalation. After a pause, the breath cycle begins again, a pumping rhythm we can all easily feel. When our breathing apparatus is working efficiently, we breathe six to 14 times per minute at rest. In a healthy person, this rate increases appropriately when the physical needs of the body require it.
Waiting to Exhale
Like other involuntary bodily functions, breathing is usually controlled by the autonomic nervous system, which enables the human organism to run like a well-oiled, self-correcting machine. There are two branches to this system: the parasympathetic and sympathetic. The parasympathetic branch, known as the “relaxation response,” controls resting functions of the body. It slows the heart and breathing rate and activates digestion and elimination.
The sympathetic branch has the opposite effect. It rouses the body and regulates active functions related to emergencies and exercise. When emergencies arise, the sympathetic branch floods the body with adrenaline—the well-known “fight or flight” response. The heart rate goes up and breathing rate increases to supply the body with an infusion of oxygen. If the danger is real, the increased energy is used. If not, the body stays in a state of overstimulation which can become chronic, causing a number of symptoms including anxiety and hyperventilation (overbreathing).
Since few of us are immune to the constant stresses and strains of modern life, the alarm bells of the sympathetic nervous system are constantly being rung. It is a real juggling act to maintain a healthy autonomic balance, a challenge at which asthmatics generally fail.
Although most asthmatics are unaware of it, we tend to chronically breathe at a rate two to three times faster than normal. Paradoxically, instead of providing more oxygen, overbreathing actually robs our cells of this essential fuel. We do take in more oxygen when we overbreathe; but, more importantly, we also breathe out too much carbon dioxide.
Most of us learn in school that when we breathe we expel carbon dioxide as a waste gas, but we don’t learn that expelling just the right amount of CO2 is critical for healthy breathing. If CO2 levels get too low, the hemoglobin that carries oxygen through the blood becomes too “sticky” and doesn’t release sufficient oxygen to the cells.
Eventually, starved for oxygen, the body takes drastic measures to slow breathing so CO2 can build back up to safe levels. These measures produce the classic symptoms of an asthma attack: Smooth muscles tighten around the airways, the body further constricts them by producing mucus and histamine (which causes swelling)—and we’re left gasping for breath.
Catch Your Breath
Once I understood that breaking the cycle of overbreathing is essential to overcoming asthma naturally, I could draw on all my years of experience with pranayama. I experimented with breathing techniques to see what would restore my natural breath rhythm. Over time I settled on a handful of exercises that were both simple and effective at slowing my breath rate and reducing the incidence and severity of my asthma.
There are certain precautions to consider as you embark on this program. Please do not stop taking your medications. The program may ultimately reduce your dependence on medication or enable you to do away with it altogether, but this should not be done hastily or without the approval of a doctor. If you have diabetes, kidney disease, or chronic low blood pressure, have had recent abdominal surgery, or are pregnant, you should consult with your physician before doing these exercises. I also strongly suggest that asthmatics avoid additional breathing exercises which call for rapid breathing (kapalabhati/bhastrika), retention of the inhalation (antara kumbhaka), or tightening the throat (strong ujjayi). Asthmatics must realize that many breathing exercises which are quite beneficial for a normal breather may have a paradoxical impact on an asthmatic.
Let me stress that patience and perseverance are required in this program. The disrupted breathing patterns common among asthmatics are deeply ingrained and can take a while to change. The truth is, it can seem easier to take a pill or use an inhaler than to spend 15 minutes a day on exercises that confront these stubborn patterns and bring up the fears and emotions that often surround the disease. I know the frustrations firsthand.
But I also know, from my experience, that if you make these behavioral changes a daily regimen, you’ll gain valuable tools for managing your asthma.
Breath Retraining Tips
Here are a number of practical guidelines that will help your efforts be more successful.
At first, practice the exercises in order. You may eventually find you prefer a different sequence, and that’s fine. (You may also have other exercises that have helped you in the past. Feel free to include them.) But whatever you do, I recommend you start each session with the Deep Relaxation exercise.
Don’t be too ambitious. Resist the urge to do more even if you feel you are ready. Wait a few months before increasing your efforts.
The exercises work best on an empty stomach, but you should sip water to help keep your airways moist.
For optimal results wear warm, loose-fitting clothing and practice in a comfortable place where you have room to lie down on the floor. In this position, less effort is required for your diaphragm to move well. However, if you are experiencing asthma symptoms, lying down may be uncomfortable. In that case, try sitting on the edge of a chair and leaning forward onto a table. Rest your head on folded arms and turn your head to one side. But you don’t need such ideal conditions to practice; I encourage you to do exercises whenever and wherever they come to mind. I often practice while I am driving.
If you feel anxious, nauseous, or short of breath while doing the following exercises, STOP. Get up and walk around. You are probably hyperventilating and need to burn off some energy. Don’t try to continue your exercises immediately, but come back to them the next day.
Remind yourself often—especially if you get frustrated—that the way you breathe now is making you ill; that it’s learned behavior; and that it can be changed.
Practice the exercises once or twice daily. When you are exhibiting symptoms, exercises 4 and 5 can be done more frequently.
There is one final guideline that may seem like a whole program in itself, since it can be so hard for an asthmatic to do: It is very important to breathe through your nose during all the exercises, even though asthmatics are often chronic mouth breathers. In fact, it is important to breathe through your nose most of the time. Air breathed in through the nose is filtered, warmed, and moistened, making it just right for sensitive airways. Nose breathing also promotes correct diaphragmatic action since it makes hyperventilation more difficult.
You may protest that you have to breathe through your mouth because your nose is always blocked. But did you know that a chronically blocked nose can be a result of poor breathing, instead of the other way around?
Here are a few tips to help unblock that schnozz and keep you breathing through it. After an exhalation, hold your nose and shake your head up and down for a few seconds, stopping when you need to inhale. This can be very effective, especially if you repeat it a few times.If you do Headstand in your asana practice, you may find that it helps, too. Using a mild saline solution to wash out your sinuses is also a great habit to develop. (Neti pots are designed for this purpose.)
When you’re trying to breathe through your nose, don’t pull the air into the nostrils; instead, open the throat. I do this by imagining my mouth is located at the hollow of my throat.
My last suggestion is an unorthodox but highly effective way to break the mouth-breathing habit. Tape your mouth closed with surgical tape! It’s a bit weird, but it really works—especially at night, when you can’t use other strategies.
Be very patient with your chronically stuffy nose; you will gradually feel improvement.
This exercise helps you establish a calm state before doing the other exercises. Begin by lying down with a firm pillow or a folded blanket under your head. Bend your knees and rest your feet flat on the floor. If that is not comfortable, place a bolster or rolled blanket under the knees. Feel free to shift your position and stretch if you become uncomfortable. Some people like to play calming music as well. Place your hands on your belly, close your eyes, and turn your attention inward. How do you feel? Are you uneasy, uncomfortable, buzzing, or distracted? Is it difficult to lie still? Is your mind racing? The goal is to let go of all that, which is not always easy. It may take several minutes (or several sessions) to relax deeply. Give yourself time.
With each exhalation, let your belly sink away from your hands and into the back body. After a gentle pause, can you feel the belly rise effortlessly when you inhale? This relaxed action cannot be rushed, so don’t force the movement in any way; an easy rhythm will settle in as your state of relaxation deepens.
I call this exercise “The Wave” because of the soothing movement that ripples up and down the spine when the body settles into your natural breath. This movement helps unlock the diaphragm and massages the abdomen, chest, and spine, releasing tension that can interfere with healthy breathing.
After Deep Relaxation, place your arms on the floor alongside your torso. Close your eyes and turn your attention to the belly and the way it melts into the pelvis each time you exhale. Begin The Wave by gently relaxing the lower back into the floor as you exhale, and then lift it a couple of inches as you inhale. The hips stay on the floor as the lower back rises and falls. This need not be a big movement, and the pace of breathing should be slow and easy. Allow yourself to settle into and slightly amplify this rhythmic wave, and notice if you can feel movement all the way up and down the spine. Repeat this exercise 10 or 15 times before continuing to the next technique.
Poor breathing habits may confuse you and cause you to reverse the coordination of movement and breath, so pay close attention. If you find yourself feeling tense, take a few normal relaxing breaths between cycles.
Softening the Inhalation
In this exercise you will try to soften the effort you use to inhale, and to decrease the length of your inhalation until it is shorter than the exhalation by as much as half. When you first try this exercise, you may feel an urgent desire to breathe in more. Instead, remember that overbreathing is a habit that perpetuates your asthma.
To identify your basic relaxed breathing rate, begin by counting the length of your exhalation, the pause afterward, and the following inhalation. After several minutes, start to modify your breath rhythm to emphasize the exhalation. Use the baseline length of your exhalation as the gauge for any modifications you make: In other words, don’t struggle to lengthen your exhalation; instead, shorten your inhalation. With practice, this will become easier. In the meantime, take several of your baseline breaths between cycles if you feel anxious or strained.
Complete Diaphragmatic Exhalations
An inability to exhale fully is a defining symptom of asthma. I practice this exercise frequently whenever I feel short of breath.
Lie on your back with your eyes closed and arms stretched out along your sides. Beginning with an exhalation, purse your lips and blow the breath out in a steady stream. You will feel a strong action in the belly as the abdominal muscles assist the exhalation. Your exhalation should be longer than usual, but it is important not to push this too far. If you do, it will be difficult to pause after exhaling and your subsequent inhalation will be strained.
Pause for a few seconds after your exhalation, relaxing the abdomen. Then, keeping your throat open, allow the inhalation to flow in through the nose. Because of the stronger exhalation, you should be able to feel the inhalation being drawn down effortlessly into the lower chest. Count the length of the exhalation, the pause, and the inhalation. At first, try to make the exhalation at least as long as the inhalation; do this by shortening your inhalation, as in the previous exercise. (Unlike the previous exercise, in which you breathe at your normal resting rate, your breath here will be both longer and stronger.) Eventually, aim to make your exhalation more than twice as long as the inhalation and to make the pause after the exhalation comfortable rather than hurried. Since asthmatics find exhalation difficult, it may help you to imagine the exhalation flowing upward, like a breeze within the rib cage, as the breath leaves the body.
Repeat five to 10 cycles of this exercise. As with all the exercises, I recommend you take several normal breaths between cycles.
This exercise is designed to help regulate the CO2 levels in the body. It doesn’t give the same quick fix as an inhaler, but it can turn an asthma attack around if you start it early enough. By pausing before you inhale, you give the body a chance to slow down and build up the level of carbon dioxide. An overbreather may find this to be the hardest exercise of all. At the outset it may be difficult to pause for even a few seconds, but if you keep trying you will notice improvement, perhaps even during a single practice session. Eventually, the pause can extend up to 45 seconds or even longer.
Position yourself as before: on your back, knees bent, with feet flat on the floor. In this exercise I recommend that you consciously shorten your inhalations and exhalations. (Your breath rate should not become rapid, though; the shorter inhalations and exhalations are balanced by the longer extended pause.) Inhale for one or two seconds, exhale for two to four seconds, and then pause. During the pause you may feel an urge to exhale a bit more, which is OK; in fact, the overall feeling of the pause should be like the natural relaxation that occurs as you exhale. You can extend the pause by consciously relaxing wherever you feel specific tensions.
As with all these exercises, patience yields better results than force. Repeat the exercise five to 10 times, and feel free to take normal breaths between cycles.
There are, of course, many other breathing techniques that can be beneficial in the management of asthma, but I can personally vouch for the transformative power of the exercises in this program. I am still an asthmatic, but I haven’t been hospitalized or on prednisone for a very long time.
The results of my efforts have been nothing short of exhilarating. Though I continued to practice yoga throughout my worst asthma years, my practice has become stronger as a result of the breathing exercises, which have helped me develop a greater sensitivity to the role of breath in asana practice. Also, I’ve been able to return to cycling, a favorite pastime I’d given up for a decade. Less than one year after adopting this program, I was able to cycle over Colorado’s Loveland Pass (11,990 feet) and to ride from Boston to New York City in a weekend without taking a single breath through an open mouth!
Although each asthmatic has his or her unique set of circumstances, I hope my story will inspire others to have hope, take active steps to change their respiration, and prevail in finding their own way to breathe free.

4 dacoits strike, attack watchman in Ghatkopar
Four dacoits broke into a ground floor flat in Ghatkopar (W) on Thursday morning, but the family fought them off. While one of the dacoits was arrested, his accomplices jumped over a nearly six-foot high wall and escaped after attacking the building watchman Sandip Kadam (31) at Mamta Cooperative Housing Society on Golibar Road.
The tribal gang had targeted Jitendrakumar Kotian’s (44) C wing flat. Kotian is a vice-president with a private freight company.

KOLKATA: Five dacoits were arrested after they looted passengers of the Hatia-Gorakhapur Maurya Express and injured four persons while attacking them with sharp-edged weapons, eastern railway officials said today.
A gang of 11 armed dacoits yesterday barged into a compartment of the train at around 11 pm and assaulted the passengers before decamping with cash, a laptop, 33 mobile phones and other valuables, they said.
I believe that the provisions of the Old Testament, being mostly prohibition’s, were specific to the fallen age of sin. In the coming age of redemption, sin would be eradicated. Thus the Old Testament commandments would no longer be of any use, as it’s practiced and understood widely by majority of Christians around the world. Yet it is blasphemy to suggest that the word of God might become superfluous and equally sacrilegious to say that it might change to meet the needs of new age. In Galatians, Paul completely over states living by the law and even goes to an extent mentioning, living by the law is totally destructive, but one must live by faith alone. How can the eternal word of God change, even for better? It couldn’t. Through the writings of Mathew, Mark, Luke & John; Jesus tells us lots on temptation and how to overcome it. However on the opposite end Paul goes a little extreme to imprint fear in the minds of readers, or I rather call believers, with confusing statements on dos & don’ts. Paul creates a carnal fear in reader’s minds, leaving the reader to bite his/her finger nails. Indeed Paul is optimistic enough to assume that God will always have an escape hatch for us subject to just having faith in Christ. He thinks God will never lead us into temptation as we stand no chance of resisting. When I closely examine Paul’s letters to the Corinthians, Galatians and others I think Paul’s God should have made us of sterner stuff is he expected for us to do any better !
Many Christians stop struggling against their vortex, compromise morally; telling themselves that they couldn’t help it, while making excuses when tempted. Afterward their guilt tells them how bad they were and yes they could have avoided and done much better. One of the most detestable of crazy ideas Christianity has managed to spawn is it happening in order to accomplish some particular purpose, as if you were a rat in Gods Skinner box and he was experimenting with you. Christians always have a reason if the charismatic miracles did not work on a particular believer.
No, given the way the world is, trails and tribulations must exist. Why does it surprise us? Look at the flesh you are made of : why should it surprise you that it aches and dies ? There is life & death cycle written into all living beings on earth. There is no mystery about that.
Christian devotion has always known this fundamental fact, though it has not always known very well how to express it. Nor does anyone else or me, but when you suffer, you must remind yourself of the dignity of your suffering. It is your cross to bear!
The insight is that “your own sufferings participate in Passion of Christ “ I guess Luke knew all this well about how to play and chain the minds of the next generations of Christians, as he says “If anyone would come after me, let him take up his cross and follow me” and “take up his cross daily”. Hardcore Christians are very firm on this basic concept issued by Luke on behalf of Jesus Christ.
Three major events at the death of Jesus Christ should allow us to confirm at least by the historical record
1) A BLACKOUT OF SUN
2) AN EARTHQUAKE
3) MASS RISING OF DEAD.
Despite Christian apologists making 2000 years of effort to find corresponding sources of confirmations for the above, no where close they have reached in discovering or perhaps inventing something more reliable. The scriptural reference to explain the above phenomena do not reflect anywhere in the world or authenticate in any other historical writings about this? This should have been the spine cracking event of all times, but Christians fail to validate this outside the Bible.
The earliest writings about Jesus, from Paul and others, contain no details of his life. The only reliable information that we really have about Paul comes from his letters in his name. If Paul had lived in the first century, the earliest copies of the letters are from the 3rd& 4th century. The early Christian sects varied in belief & their concepts and they did not accept Pauline writings as the inspired word of God. The early church fathers also didn’t acknowledge Pauline letters as God inspired works. In fact the originality of Paul’s letters is dubious. The Gnostic leader Marcion had copies of Paul’s letters that he claimed to be original and he declared that his opponents (Catholics) had inserted statements into their counterfeit copies to comply with the Catholic doctrine. It’s clear, that any potential changes done by the Roman Catholics to suit their concepts. Therefore, prior to this inclusion Pauline letters were never considered inspired, thus its evident that the Pauline letters are interpolations and not Divine.
Justin Martyr & Tertullian ( The early church fathers ) had more opposition than Paul or Peter during the early stage of Christianity. During those years many mysterious religions existed throughout the Roman Empire, these mysterious religions had several rituals & rites pre-dating Christianity. Today we notice these same rituals & practices of cup of blood, bread of life, Eucharist, etc., practiced by over Billion believers worldwide. When Justin Martyr was confronted by his critics debating on these rituals being copied by Christians, he said “which the wicked devil has initiated in the mysteries of Mithras, commanding the same thing to be done. For, that bread and a cup of water are placed with certain incantations in the mystic rites of one who is being initiated, you either know or can learn “ ( First Apology; Justin Martyr , 150 CE ).
Justin Martyr states that ‘wicked devils’ have initiated these mysteries in the Mithras religions because these rituals existed before the Christian religion; the claim was that Satan had initiated these mysteries in advance of Jesus. I find there is problem with the logic of Justin Martyr, however one thing is for sure the Christian rituals are similar to Mithraism rituals. Many of the practices, such as baptism and sacred meals, which were part of Paul’s teachings, were already thousands of years in use among the mystery religions in Greece, Roman & Egyptian world. The Christian cult around the world which fundamentally glorifies them as the true religion have copied and corrupted the ancient Egypto-Gnostic Mythology. We can only debunk this Judeo-Christian fraud by looking into the ancient Egyptian written works, which pre-dated Judeo-Christianity by thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians did not take the scriptures literally, but did signify it fully in terms of mythology and secret wisdom of astronomy.
One fact concealed is the connection between the Semitic Jehovah and Satan. In fact I observe both as same. A reading of the Old Testament, especially the books of Exodus & Deuteronomy, details of bloodlust and mass murder that are done in the name of God should align the doubt of any rational reader as to the identity of Jehovah. In 25000years of Egypt’s history the civilization and study of science was at the peak (which we now observe in 21st century). Pythagoras, Plato and many Greek Philosophers, visited Egypt to study religion and sciences of that country. Apparently with the coming of Judeo-Christian religions the bloodshed started in the world. Romans, Greeks, Druids, Irish, and Indians were all frequent travellers to Egypt to become learned men & women. The mystic letters of I.H.S., familiar from our childhood on altar fronts, embroidery in gold thread by pious ladies, were used as symbols of Bacchus and venerated in his temples by unreasoning but faithful worshippers just as we do today. Thors hammer was a cross. The Gospel itself is undisputedly Greek origin as Hebrew creation. The essential doctrines of Greek religion were imported from Egypt.
There is also Jewish Cabala, containing an explanation of the priestly secrets and mysteries of the Hebrews, but no one at the present day can fully understand it. One can understand how much today the doctrines and present religions have been concocted and corrupted from the ancient science and wisdom. Many of the mysteries of our Holy books are not understood by our clergy and can never offer us a full-fledged explanation. The deplorable fact, which we have now to regret is, that the priests who ought to be able to tell us the meaning of the scriptures, which they undertake to expound, know nothing whatever of their real significance. It is probable, that there is not a single Christian priest who knows what the canon of the Church is, or why a certain office or literary arrangement is canonical or what makes it so. He would deny the Old Testament and Gospel are allegorical books but has no explanation to offer for the absurdities which occur in it. The modern priests and pastors to whom we naturally turn for instruction in the mysteries of the church, is the very last person from whom we are likely to get information. Let us therefore leave these unaware people on in their cult.
“ The great mass of women and common people cannot be inclined by mere force of reason to devote themselves to piety, virtue and honesty: superstition must therefore be employed and even this insufficient without the aid of marvelous and the terrible. For what are the thunderbolts, the aegis, the trident, the torches, the dragons, the barbed antique theology, but fables employed by the founders of states as bug bears to frighten timorous minds? “(STRABO’S GEOGRAPHY BK.1.CH2.V8)
Theology, in its various forms, has always been the epitome of art, and constituted the law for its guidance. The ancient Egyptians only communicated by symbols and parables, this constituted the most important form of mystical, yet literary art. We find the in four Gospels the writers have implied mysteries, symbols, parables & signs throughout their narration, indeed an Egyptian style of narration. Today everything has changed. Theology has dropped her secrets; her symbols have become meaningless ornaments and parables no longer understood.
The biggest mystery concealed in Genesis is the creation of man (Adam) by God in his own image. This is the cover, a false cover to conceal the identity of woman (Female – Eve). If the creation consists of male & female in all species on planet then there has to be a source of creation somewhere which understand and knows more then us about the male & female concept. Its evident that the heavenly kingdom ( if there is any ) should have male & female Gods both. I fail to understand, why we consider our creator/ or our supreme being as male. If the idea of female originated from God, that means there has to be a female source in the Universe. Even the temptation of Eve as described in Genesis is one way of concealing the identity of female source and to lower her image throughout the generations, due to this one act of disobedience against God. Woman has always been subjected to many traumas and could not possess equal rights with men after this story of Genesis came into theology. If the serpent had to chose woman in that story to tempt, then one thing is for sure , either woman was more wise than man at that time or it is an allegory to lower woman in eyes of the mankind forever for this act. Everything around and about wisdom was connected to woman in the ancient world. Before the Judeo-Christian era the woman held equal rights & also spiritual rights throughout the world. The Bible hides the real potential and powers of wisdom of woman right from the beginning chapter of Genesis. Man & woman are both attributes of God and his creation and similarly we all have attributes of God in us. If woman is blamed for mans fall then we should look at the origin of the fall closely. Prior to creation we have heard & read stories of fall of angels, later the same group of angels condemned to Hell. Today we call their leader Devil, Satan or Lucifer, an adversary of God. Its certain that if those angels were fallen fro sin and if all this happened in heaven, so it means that heaven had sin even before the temptation of Eve. Did sin originate in heaven ? If God placed the serpent in the Garden of Eden, which means God is in possession and total control of evil. I know this theory is not plausible by most, but I am examining and explaining with pure logic what is hidden in our scriptures and how we are taken for a fake spiritual ride by the invisible authors of the Gospels – “Alias the word of God”.
Mennasseh Ben Israel, a writer of the 19th century says “God delivered to Moses the written law and the commentary called the oral law which was to be retained mentally and transmitted traditionally. Its therefore termed ‘Cabala’ – (received) “.
Hebrew language is considered as the ‘Holy tongue’ and proceeds from consummate ‘wisdom’, which is infinite; each word in itself contains the profoundest mysteries.
R. Simon Ban Jochai says in Zohar, “Woe to him who imagines that the law only contains superficial structure of narration…”
Doctrines of Nasseni seem to show their creed derived from Cabala and has valuable illustration of its meaning. The Nasseni were Christian Gnostic sect, who worshipped logos under the name and image of serpent. They were Hebrew origin , they took their word NACHASH, a serpent a Hebrew word. The Nasseni affirm concerning spirit of the seed that its cause of all existing things and is the secret and unknown mystery of the universe concealed and revealed among the Egyptian’s, who, after the Phrygians, are of greater antiquity than all mankind, and were the first to proclaim rites and orgies of all Gods as well as the unspeakable mystery of Isis.
According to Josephus, Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt in seventh Olympiad ( 749 BC ) but this date is uncorroborated, and agrees with no other account. The LXX declare that he lived in A.M. 3839, the Hebrews put the year of exodus A.M. 2423. None of these dates, however, can be supported by any authentic evidence outside the above whatsoever.
According to St. Clement, “therefore some who say that 300 cubits ( Tan,300 ) are symbol of the Lords sign “ ( Miscell Bk 6 Ch 9 ) The letter Tan or cross, was the emblem of the Phallus , predated Christianity. Noah’s Ark was 300 cubits in length.
A perfect lucidity and yet confusing, meaningless quote by St. Athanasius: “ …one God in Trinity, and Trinity in unity; neither conforming the persons, nor dividing the substance. For there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost”.
This is the Christian Trinitarian basis or the Catholic dogma. An explanation can never be given by any Christian. I fail to understand why God would like to triple roles . The Judeo-Christian God is nothing but derived from mythos to catch the imagination and religious belief of an ignorant mind. It simple an ignorant worshipper who is caught in this faith drama can never look beyond the Christian era to understand the earlier similarity with the Egyptian mythos.
We strive for unknown mysteries, mystics & traditions, which has always given us confused theories with confound meanings which are yet difficult in present day to understand without study of Egyptology. Science has great future, but today its limited. We linger between the religious dogmas and quest for science without aspiring to see reasoned truth and thoughts that we are never been able to express.
A glimpse at Clementine Homilies, an inspired writings by the faction of Peter., by them Paul is designated as “Hostile Man” and an ‘ANOMOS’ ( Lawless ), here Peter flung backs at Paul, says “Thou hast opposed thyself as an adversary against me, the firm rock, the foundation of the Church”. Pauls conversion according to Peter is abnormal and attributed as the false Christ, Gnostic and Spiritualistic as opposed to historic Christ . ( Homily 17 ) : Peter obviously hits back at Paul “Can anyone be instituted to the office of a teacher through visions?”.
Today around the world we find many pastors, priests, saints who try to expand their Churches, Ministries and collection boxes, by their so-called visions about Jesus, Mary or Saints. Several Churches will relate their endless stories about the visions, end times prophecies, and redemption. Is this not directly contradictory to Peters statement, a statement from the Rock of Christianity., Why are the Christians overlooking today the most important part instructed by the Church father himself?
Although the feud between Peter, James, John against Paul has always been a black mark in the early church history ( If it ever was true ). This feud between their historic Christ’s apostles and spiritual Christ’s apostle, if dug further, can only lead us to the myth of Jesus Christ and the abnormalities’ of the Church and its dogma. That’s the reason Peter tells his disciples not to publish true Gospel until the rise of the Anti-Christ, that’s none other than his arch rival Paul. As Paul would rent out more and more of his gnostic Christ through his Epistles, at the opposite side Peter had to wait until the passing away of his rival, so that in future Peter and his disciples could openly preach their Gospel, unlike the secret preaching which they were carrying on at that time. However, the founders of the unified Gospel and the creators of the Roman Catholicism had to later, merge, forge, compile, falsify Peters, Paul’s , James, Johns & Peters teaching or ascribe teachings to them in our todays Holy Gospel. Interestingly the Gospel compilers seem to be either under pressure to compile the gospel or overlooked certain contradictions, which can be seen by an intelligent or logical person, to figure out the lies of Christian book , the total messed up Holy Bible. Even the early Church fathers Justin Martyr was from Peters group and Peters disciples had always shun away Paul and his Gospel as false. Alarmingly even the Book of Acts, a history about Paul, never mentions Paul’s martyrdom or death in Rome.
Many of the meanings of the scriptures have still to be ascertained and that even pre-dating back prior to the Judeo-Christian era. The ancient Egyptian scribes were as much puzzled as we are today while reading over scriptures. The copying of the older texts into new scriptures or religions manuscripts was nothing new to every religion that we know today. The gaps and profound unexplained meanings in scriptures is owing to carelessness, ignorance or weariness, that they made blunders which modern student of theology is unable to explain or correct.
The story of creation in EGYPTIAN PAPYRUS , as told by the God NEB-ER-TCHER ( Lord to the uttermost limit) & the character of God suggests that the word “limit” refers to time & space, in fact the everlasting God of the universe. The name occurs in Coptic texts, and then appears to possess all attributes of Gods in modern nations. The existence of NEB-ER-TCHER or origin is not explained, believed to be almighty & invisible power which filled all space.
MAAT – Goddess of law, order, truth and the “heart of the God Ra”. She assisted NEB-ER-TCHER to transform as a creator KHEPERA in arranging his thoughts and their visible forms for creation. She also plays a major part of WISDOM, as described in BOOK OF PROVERBS, for it was by MAAT that he “laid the foundation “ ( PROVERBS , viii, 22ff) it appears that the entire Egyptian verse is copied word to word in our current Old Testament .
I have come to look upon as constituting the unpardonable sin of the father and mother against the helpless innocence of infancy is permitting the mind & soul of their children to be inoculated with old false orthodox dogmas and delusions, by allowing them to believe that the fables of ancient mythology are sacred and solely true “WORD OF GOD”. Its like after 500years parents will teach their children that Lord of the rings , Harry Potter & Narnia are true historical stories and the heroes within are sons of God or God himself divine. It took almost half of my life to throw of the mass of corrupting error instilled into us during our childhood. Unfortunately the mass of people never get rid of this infection, nor stop from giving the disease to others. My logical questioning of the Christian dogmas and doctrines which seemed to me finally inexplicable and unintelligible were extremely mysterious and true explanation to them is death to their false pretentious. Take the doctrine of Trinity for instance; no theologian throughout all Christendom gave intelligible account of its origin and primary meaning.
However, when I went beyond theology and researched mythology in Pre-Judeo-Christian era, I discovered Trinity all over the world, the triangular God or Triune that pre-dated religions. Myths & allegories whose significance was once unfolded to the initiates in ancient mysteries, have been adopted in ignorance, and re-issued as real truths divinely vouchsafed to mankind for first time in Hebrew writings.
The Hebrew devil, or Satan means opponent or adversary and the first great natural adversary recognized by primitive man was Darkness – simply DARKNESS, the constant & eternal enemy of the light – that is, the power of darkness was literal before it became metaphorical, moral or spiritual. The first form of devil was female , called “Dragon of Darkness”, who was TIAMAT in Akkad, and TYPHON in Egypt. Typhon gave birth to SUT, who later became Egyptian devil – our Satan – ANGRO-MAINYUS ( Persian Devil ). Primitive man didn’t imagine or personify a devil behind visible phenomena that caused the darkness. Hence darkness itself was devil.
Today as deeply rooted in religious beliefs, superstitions, traditions we look for salvation 18 centuries ago, without excavating the nature of humanity from our own selves. Ages and ages have passed with obstruction of religious ignorance, which keeps us bounded to our mythological scriptures just because of the fear of Hell-fire. Humanity has lost its real meaning and mind crippling laws have become sacred religious texts. We cannot look beyond our own selfishness today. We depend fully upon God to work out quick miracles whenever we are faced with pain. Everything in the world is result of cause and effect and sometimes we do get caught in results of the other people’s actions or lawless actions of state, government, natural calamities, sickness etc which we are part of it today. Sometimes it’s not the individual’s actions that we result in loss or pain but also actions from outside our own control, but that is the effect of social life or an organized society that we live in today. The leaders, State, theology and religion keep us grounded with chains, so that we are never able to break out from the fear & scriptural prejudice. The Religion tool is the most used tool to manipulate mass and to create turmoil by the leaders and governments. Politics number resource – Religion. Ultimately we have lost our ability to understand true humanity, peace, and stopped understanding our very basic nature of instinct.
Eternally the creator intends to show us that humanity is one, and the family is more than an individual, nation is more than the family and the entire human race is more than the nation and if we do not accept this revelation lovingly and kindly , then we shall always be caught in the doctrine of heaven, hell & salvation and the oneness of humanity will never rise. We shall be always killing, invading and destroying others, nature and our own soul. The present age gives the result of honesty mostly as poverty, then the church goes on to say that its because these people do not visit church they ended up like this.
UN warns of ‘shocking’ abuses in Bahrain
Released on – Thursday,17 March , 2011 -14:47
The United Nations warned on Thursday of “shocking and illegal” abuses in Bahrain after a bloody crackdown on Shiite-led protesters which has alarmed the United States and infuriated the Shiite world.
Political dissidents were rounded up at gunpoint in midnight raids and police armed with shot-guns stood outside Manama’s main hospital, amid reports the authorities were beating doctors and denying treatment to the wounded.
UN rights chief Navi Pillay said any takeover by the security forces of hospitals and medical facilities was “a blatant violation of international law.” ( Source AFP )
When we read the above news section, we understand that its clear case of double standards displayed by UN and the allied forces of USA, UK & France. We are witnessing since last week continuous air strikes on Libya and many civilian lives have been lost. The Libyan Air Force is fully decimated and the Libyan dictator still vows to defend and fight back. When we look at the Libyan turmoil and the Bahrain anarchy, we can only observe that the western powers are playing double standards in the Middle East crises. Why does the West turn a blind eye against Bahrain, Iran, Yemen and Oman, where the suppression of the reformists and the protesters killed in aggression doesn’t serve a valid argument.
The violation of International Law by the Bahraini leader is given a blind eye by the west, whereas a similar kind of protest in Libya is met with military action. What is the role of USA, UK & France to attack Libya? Why will they not attack countries like Sudan, Israel, Syria, Iran, Bahrain, Oman & Yemen, where the toll of human lives much more higher than Libya. Are the western forces planning a step by step destruction of the Islamic world? Is this the crusade of our generation?
We might get very contradictory answers for this or we might not get any, but what is important to see is this aggressive imperialism which continues to haunt the modern world. At one side the Saudis, Kuwaitis, and other GCC nations rank high on human rights and abuse and also do not share any governmental powers with common people and yet the western forces do not even raise a single question about these policies of the GCC nations.
Libya has been attacked with air strikes by USA, UK & France, now we need to see what will be the actions against Syria, Iran & Bahrain. Will the western powers strike these countries too, or will they trounce Gaddafi out of his power and replace him with a puppet ruler, who would dance to the tunes of western powers. Saudi tanks and armed personnel did march into Bahrain last week to curb the protests and to calm things in Bahrain. Then was not the same approach used in Libya in curbing the protests. Two countries and two different approach by the world. No matter what Gaddafi responds to the western air strikes, he will be ousted, as no nation in the world today could face three military powers USA, UK & France. Therefore, what Gaddafi says is given least attention as he has to go and the Libyan people will also lead into a troubled life post-Gaddafi, just like what happened in Iraq.
Which nations in the world will oppose in reality and not on media or paper against the western imperialism.
Posted in African gold dust scam, African rough diamonds scam, Guinea, Uncategorized, tagged African gold dust scam, African rough diamonds scam, African scammers, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Senegal, Togo on January 11, 2011 | 322 Comments »
African Gold dust scam and African rough diamonds scam has duped hundreds of people world-wide, not only do ignorant poor people get ripped off their savings of seeing a profitable deal , but also many businessmen have turned bankrupt and lost their wealth, the fact I am still unable to understand, why do people fall into such scams.
The Scammers are basically from the west african nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Cameron, Mali and Burkina Fasso to list a few. The scammers always use telephone numbers/ mobile numbers which are not traceable. Victims usually come across such scammers through unsolicited emails and text sms. The scammers declare that they are in possession of Gold dust/ Gold dory bars / rough diamonds / or other precious metals / stones that will be sold at almost 50% to 70% lesser than the market price and that way the buyer has an opportunity to sell it with good profits. The Scammers do provide all the certifications , licences, insurances papers, Kimberley Process Certificates, invoices to the sellers which is all fake but nothing more than a Photoshop creation of these certifications. The seller will always throughout the communications with their victims use various telephone numbers. The scammers will also do phone calls to the sellers as they use illegal telephone lines, his somehow convinces the buyer that the seller in Africa is a real person. The seller will ask for maximum information from the buyer, like bank account numbers, address, telephone numbers, passport copies etc. However, the seller will never provide the buyer with such information and even if provided it will be a fake.
There is always an initial amount that the buyer will have to pay for some registration, tax, paperwork etc., which could be from $200 to maximum any amount. This money will never be returned to the buyer and eventually the buyer will never see the Gold or rough diamonds.
On many occasions the seller will invite the buyer to Guinea, Ghana, Mali or any other African country to conclude the deal. I have known of many such incidents when the buyer has travelled to Africa and found himself being kidnapped by these scammers. The next step from these scammers will be to hold the victim hostage and ask for ransom from hostage’s family members. Few victims do end up getting back to their home country, but few are left dead.
Never travel to Africa to conclude such deals from unknown / invisible scammers/ exporters.
Never send money to these scammers, especially they will ask through Western Union or any other money transfer office.
Never declare your personal details , bank account , passport copies to these scammers.
Always verify each document / telephone numbers if you are getting tempted to do any such business deals with the scammers ( Or you may ask us ).
Victims never think from where these exporters got the Gold / Rough diamonds in the first place and why aren’t they selling in the real market. Are not such industries controlled by the respective governments with proper laws & regulations. Why did the scammer contact the victim and how on earth the scammer thought that the victim will buy the merchandise.
The Gold & Diamond industries in west Africa remain handicapped due to unstable Governments. The traditional mining does have two channels in west Africa, through legal methods of trade and the illegal method of trade. Its better that the buyers study in depth about this and don’t get involved in the illegal method of trade or get duped by the scammers. Export & trading of gold especially in Guinea is free and does not have any restrictions. No approval , no licence is required to sell, buy, export or hold gold and diamonds in Guinea. The best way is to follow the Central Bank of Guinea’s procedures to do such trade. In west Africa fraud cannot be controlled in mining and precious metals/stones trading. Therefore, the victims must not pursue their lost money and even Interpol cannot do much in this situation.
Sierra Leone – Sierra Leone’s customs authorities enforce strict regulations concerning the export of gems and precious minerals, such as diamonds and gold. All mineral resources, including gold and diamonds, belong to the State and only the government of Sierra Leone can issue mining and export licenses. The legal authority for the issuance of licenses is vested in the Ministry of Mines and Mineral Resources. Failure to comply with relevant legislation can lead to serious criminal penalties. For further information on mining activities in Sierra Leone, contact the Ministry of Mines and Mineral Resources: The Director of Mines, Ministry of Mines and Mineral Resources, Fifth Floor, Youyi Building, Brookfields, Freetown, Sierra Leone; tel.

Gold Operations in Ghana are in two Sectors
–The big mining companies; and the small-scale sector. PMMC is responsible for the small-scale, which is comprised of individuals, small and medium size mining companies.
–Generally, any mining operation with concession up to 25 acres is considered a small-scale mine. PMMC purchases glod from small-scale miners and in turn export abroad. PMMC already has an existing contract to sell its gold to an overseas gold refinery, however applicants with favourable terms may be considered.
–Overseas Buyers seeking to purchase gold from Ghana may contact other licensed gold buyers. However, any offers received from suppliers are to be confirmed with PMMC for advice on genuineness of transaction.
–Overseas Buyers of gold are strictly advised NOT to pay cash directly to any local suppliers of gold
Bank of Ghana regulations require that payment for gold suppliers are made by Bank-to-Bank transfer via Bank of Ghana (i.e. The Central Bank of Ghana).
1. The gold to be exported shall be delivered by the licensed Gold Buyer to PMMC premises by 9.00 a.m for assaying on the day of export, if already smelted. Otherwise the unsmelting gold a day before the dayh of export.
2. PMMC shall issue Assay Invoice which will indicate the weight and the purity of gold to be exported.
3. The gold to be exported shall be sealed and secured in metal/wooden specie boxes on the day of export by PMMC in the presence of the following group of officers.
–Ghana Customs Officers
–The Licensed Gold Buyer who has requested for the gold export.
4. PMMC will complete the Bank of Ghana and Ghana Custom export documents on behalf of the Local Seller/Gold Buyer.
5. The Licensed Gold Buyer will be required to supply the full address and the telephone number of the overseas destination for the export.
6. PMMC will be responsible to transport the gold to Kotoka International Airport, Accra for delivery to the airline (currently KLM).
7. The Licensed Gold Buyer and the Overseas Buyer shall be responsible for the Insurance and Airfreight charges of the gold to be exported.
8. The gold to be exported will be accompanied by the following documents:-
PMMC Assay invoice which will indicate:
• Purity (i.e. Gold content).
• Quantity in ounces and kgs.
• Value in both US Dollars and Local Currency.
The value of the gold will be based on the spot price of the London Metal Exchange (LME) on the day of export.
• Bank of Ghana and the Ghana Customs export documents.
• Airway Bill.
9. Funds in US Dollars representing the export value of the gold should be transferred to PMMC account at the Bank of Ghana (i.e. The Central Bank of Ghana), with The Licensed Gold Buyer noted therein as the beneficiary, prior to the export of the gold. PMMC will provide the Bank transfer instructions to the exporter for the information of the overseas buyer to facilitate the transfer of fund.
10. PMMC fees for the export of gold are :-
–Shipment charges : – 0.50% of the export value of the gold
–Assay charges : – $50.00 per bar of 5kgs
–Smelting charges : – $20 per kg. Of gold
–These fees are payable on the day of export of the gold

|Combo photo shows some of the prominent victims of the crash of Poland’s presidential plane. It includes Maria Kaczynska, 66, Poland’s first lady; Gen. Franciszek Gagor, 58, army chief of staff; Vice Admiral Andrzej Karweta, 51, navy chief commander; Gen. Tadeusz Buk, 49, land-forces commander; Slawomir Skrzypek, 46, president of the National Bank of Poland; Aleksander Szczyglo, 46, head of the national security office; Piotr Nurowski, 64, head of Poland’s Olympic Committee, and so on.|
As Poland mourns the death of their President Lech Kaczynski, the world has suddenly come once again to know or to understand Poland. It’s indeed a tragic accident that an ageing Soviet era airliner carrying high level delegation of Poland had crashed on Russian soil, just few kilometers away from Katyn graves. Many see this as a doubtful incident and even go further to call this as a conspiracy or staged accident by the Russians. The Polish people unlike the many post Soviet states always distance themselves from politics, given the understanding that they hate politics more then rest of the world. However, despite the less political affection by the Polish masses, they have always come up with some extreme characters who defied the odds of the imperial world. Nonetheless, patriots like Lech Walesa, Pope John Paul II, Lech Kaczynski and many others have been notable in their reformation of Poland as a strong economic state in Europe.
Kaczynski joined Lech Walesa’s Solidarity in the 1980s and became an important leader of the anti-communist movement as he spent time in jail on the charges that he had worked in illegal union activities. Later, in 1990, the Kaczynski brothers became the driving force behind Walesa’s election as president, when Poland held its first free election after the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe. As Walesa put Poland on the path of post-communism reconstruction in the early 1990s, the Kaczynski brothers fell out with the Polish president over the issue of Solidarity leadership and found themselves outside mainstream politics. Not used to lying low, the brothers who shot to fame at the age of 12 as stars in the film ‘Two boys who stole the moon’, founded the Law and Justice party, which stresses the traditional values of the Roman Catholic Church, in 2001. Completely different from Walesa in style as well as substance, the Kaczynskis often called for radically transforming the post-communist Poland, called the “Third Republic”, into a “Fourth Republic”, based on social justice and a strong state.
While he remained popular at home with his conservative policies, Kaczynski became a controversial figure on the world stage with his unusual rhetoric. During an October 2009 ceremony to sign the European Union’s reform treaty into law, Kaczynski stressed that the EU remained a union of sovereign nation states and said it must remain open to new members, including countries in the Balkans and Georgia. Known for his anti-Russian stand and strong support of the Bush administration’s missile shield plan, Kaczynski agreed in 2009 to allow a small US base equipped with SM-3 interceptors on Polish soil which would target short and medium-range missiles.
Since then he was in the bad books of Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Its ironic that Kaczynski perished on the Russian soil just before he was to attend a ceremony to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre — where Russian forces killed more than 20,000 Polish people during World War II.
After the loss of such top brass officials, Economists, Politicians & leaders in this planes crash, the fate of Poland lies once again in the hands of some pro-Russian leaders who would re-shape the political situation of Poland. What scares me most is if the replacement leaders, officials will continue to work on the same strategies of the former or will they place Poland on the plate of Russia and making Poland weaker economically & politically. It will only be now the common Polish people would have to really step into the serious mode of country and some younger generation to involve into political scene of Poland. It was indeed one of my best observations of Poland that this country last year was not ravaged by the world financial crises; this was the only European country that was not affected by recession. If it was not for such leadership roles of many like Lech and others, Poland too, would have been on the brink of the financial disaster like other countries.
I hope that this country of brave people who have always been like the wall between the west and east or Europe continue to be as strong as they were few centuries ago. Any Russian involvement will only retard the country. Therefore, the next one year is going to be very crucial for Poland’s growth. I believe that President Lech’s policies were what a proud yet insecure Poland needed to emerge as a political voice between Western Europe and the former Soviet states.
The toll of Indian soldiers increases each day with government taking no agressive action against the red rebels. Most parts of West Bengal, Orissa, Bihar & UP have been infilterated by the Maoists. Creating yet another mayhem within the democratic India. Due to the connections of some politicians with the Maoists, the armed forces cannot go on a full scale offensive against the reds.
I do NOT endorse the Yin/Yang occultism promoted by ShirleysWellnessCafe.com. In my pursuit of finding the truth and sharing it with others, I am often placed in a dilemma of having to decide what to promote and what to discard. The health information provided by ShirleysWellnessCafe.com is excellent and thorough, and I think worthy of our attention. If I were to remove every offensive element of my ministry because of every sanctimonious believer who criticizes something I promote, then a lot of vital truth would be suppressed. How ironic!
Parents pressured to put kids on AZT, Ritalin, and other dangerous toxic drugs
Judges can constitutionally order controversial drugs to be given to a child over the opposition of his parents. Parents are medicating their children for fear of having them hauled away by Child Protective Services. Please read, DCFS Monsters!
“The drugging of children has gotten so out of hand that America is waking up to this. This is a national catastrophe. I’m seeing children who are normal who are on five psychiatric drugs.”
—Peter R. Breggin, M.D. Director, International Center for the Study of Psychiatry and Psychology
Mandatory Toxic Drugs for Babies and Children
Forced Drugging of Children – Parents may face jail over compulsory drug orders In the US judges can constitutionally order controversial drugs to be given to a child over the opposition of his parents. Parents are medicating their children for fear of having them hauled away by Child Protective Services. In the UK Parents of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) will face jail under proposals in the new Mental Health Bill if they refuse to drug their children, a psychiatrist has warned.
FDA WARNING FUELS NEED FOR FEDERAL PROTECTIONS AGAINST FORCED MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR PSYCHIATRIC DRUGGING IN SCHOOLS
On Monday, March 22, 2004, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health advisory putting doctors on notice and to be vigilant for signs of suicidality or worsening depression with the use of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant drugs use. Patients, families and other caregivers are also warned. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), an international psychiatric watchdog group, says the warning does not go far enough-the potential for antidepressants to cause suicidal and self-injurious behavior has been established-the drugs should not be prescribed to children at all.
Julian Whitaker M.D. - “Ritalin: Legally Sanctioned “Speed” Ritalin is the number one prescription drug for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This drug has such tremendous potential for abuse that it is classified as a controlled substance by the Drug Enforcement Agency. Ritalin is an amphetamine (in street jargon, “speed”) with a lengthy list of side effects, including nervousness, insomnia, nausea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, dizziness, palpitations, headaches, irregular heart rhythms, and psychic dependence — in short, addiction. In fact, Ritalin’s appeal to drug users and its potential for abuse are so high that US House Judiciary Chair Henry Hyde (R-IL) recently filed a request with the General Accounting Office (GAO) to conduct an investigation of Ritalin abuse in public schools. In addition, class action lawsuits have been filed in Texas, California and New Jersey charging Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis, maker of Ritalin, with conspiracy to create the psychiatric disorder known as ADHD in order to fuel the market for their product.”
Dr. Allen Buresz – “In 1996 the World Health Organization warned that Ritalin over-use has reached dangerous proportions. Ritalin, for instance, may provoke seizures and suppress growth, or it may cause angina, blood pressure changes, depression or any of a very long list of serious side effects.”
Lawsuits filed in Texas, California and New Jersey claim that the booming success of Ritalin is the result of a conspiracy in which the American Psychiatric Association, Novartis Pharmaceutical Corp. and national parents’ group Children and Adults With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) colluded to create the diagnoses of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Following the acceptance of ADD/ADHD as medical diagnoses, sales of Ritalin and similar stimulants have skyrocketed, with more than 6 million such prescriptions being written in 1995, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
Death From Ritalin – The Truth Behind ADHD
This is an educational resource for parents whose children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and are being pressured into drugging their child by a school Psychologist, social worker, teacher, or principle. This site expose the health risks, dangers, and deaths that are a direct result of administering psycho-tropic drugs to children. These psycho-tropic drugs given to children labeled with ADHD include Ritalin, Methylphenidate, Concerta, Dexedrine, Dextrostat, and Metadate, just to name a few. It is time for parents to come together and fight this horrific war against the drugging of our children, America’s future. This site is full of resourced and information – a must visit!
“To my knowledge there are but 8 states that have passed legislation banning the practice of a school forcing parents to drug their children. This is possible in 42 states. On a national level, The Child Medication and Safety Act has passed the House by a near unanimous vote. This legislation would let parents refuse to drug their children in every state.Our website– http://www.fightforkids.org/ — has a legislative grid where you can
find the states who have passed laws and other states that have passed resolutions, and still other
states with legislation, studies, and resolutions pending.” Joe Bleich
100 GUINEA-PIG KIDS – SHOCKING NEW NUMBER IN HIV TESTS
By Douglas Montero
February 29, 2004 — The state Health Department has launched a probe into potentially dangerous drug research conducted on HIV-infected infants and children at a Manhattan foster-care agency, The Post has
learned. Some 50 foster kids were used as “guinea pigs” in 13 experiments with high doses of AIDS medications at Manhattan’s Incarnation Children’s Center, sources said.
Most of the ICC experiments were funded by federal grants and in some cases, pharmaceutical companies. They used city foster children, who were sent to the Catholic Archdiocese-run facility by the Administration
for Children’s Services. ICC was involved in 36 different experiments, according to the National Institutes of Health Web site. One study researched “HIV Wasting Syndrome,” which studied how a child’s body changes when his medication is altered. A handful of the experiments involved combining up to six AIDS drugs – so-called “cocktails” – in children as young as 3 months, and another explores the reaction of not one, but two doses of the measles vaccine in kids ages 6 to 7 months.
Other studies tested the “safety,” “tolerance” and “toxicity” of AIDS drugs. “They are torturing these kids, and it is nothing short of murder,” said Michael Ellner, a minister and president of Health Education AIDS Liaison, an advocacy group for HIV parents. Biochemist Dr. David Rasnick, a visiting scholar at the University of California at Berkeley and an expert in AIDS medication, was outraged because the drugs, alone or combined, have “acute toxicity which could be fatal.” He said the drugs’ side effects include severe liver damage, cancerous tumors, severe anemia, muscle wasting, severe and life-threatening rashes and “buffalo hump,” where fatty tissues accumulate behind the neck.
Cancer and Children
On August 10, 1998 at age two, our son Alexander Horwin was diagnosed with the most common pediatric brain tumor, medulloblastoma. After Alexander endured two brain surgeries my husband and I located the best non-toxic therapy that had proven successful in treating brain cancer. However, on September 21, 1998, the FDA denied Alexander access to this potentially life-saving treatment. The oncologists told us that without their “state-of-the-art” chemotherapy, the cancer would soon return. We knew nothing of the history, efficacy and actual danger of chemotherapy but instinctively knew it was a poor choice for therapy. Alexander completed his third month of chemotherapy in December 1998 and died on January 31, 1999. He was just two and a half years old.
The “state-of-the-art” chemo protocol that the oncologists had administered to our son had proven its ineffectiveness in pediatric brain tumors many years before. In fact, in 1994, the exact same chemo drugs Alexander received in 1998 had been administered to children the same age with the same brain tumor (medulloblastoma) as Alexander. This experiment proved so unsuccessful that tumors spread within five months and the oncologists terminated the protocol. It was incredible to us to discover that chemotherapy that had already proven so ineffective that it required termination was being presented to parents as “state of the art” years later.
We were never informed about the failure of this therapy. We also discovered that we weren’t the only parents being purposefully misinformed. Today, parents are still being misled and children with brain cancer are still getting these same toxic drugs that have proven their ineffectiveness in the past. But even if you are informed that orthodox therapy does not work you still may not have a choice. When we hesitated to bring Alexander in for chemo the oncologists were already gearing up to take him from us by court order. Learn more: read about the Horwin’s story and their journey into research.
“I started as a believer in chemotherapy. As a science writer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, I wrote articles praising the latest advances in chemotherapy. Because chemotherapy drugs were general cellular poisons, they could be terribly toxic. They were also very expensive for patients and for society as a whole. When I learned about the links between the pharmaceutical industry and the cancer establishment (later detailed in my book, The Cance r Industry) I understood the commercial reason that such an inadequate modality was so heavily promoted.” Ralph W. Moss
Law Firm now focuses on protecting the rights of children who have been injured or killed by toxic and ineffective cancer treatments administered by oncologists.
Dr. Daniel H Duffy Sr. - Pharmaceutical Terrorism & Mandatory Vaccination – The very first words of the Nuremberg Principles issued following the Second World War and designed to outlaw Nazi medical experiments for all time were: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.” Failure to stem the present tide of invasive compulsory medical procedures result in terrible consequences downstream as these forces grow more powerful and more oppressive. We will eventually experience total loss of our freedom to determine ours and our family’s own destiny, not only in health matters but in all forms of living. Political power breeds more power – the system is out of control and must be brought back under control. Controversial mandatory medicine, especially mandatory vaccines must be stopped. This socially malignant situation is under the control of the educated, ruling classes, particularly that part of the scientific community (NIH, CDC, FDA, AMA etc.) exerting influence on government policy. Mandatory vaccination is the most repugnant idea ever put forth by organized medicine. It gives the government power to invade our most private space, our bodies. This is the most private domain of the citizen, their own body! Mandatory vaccination puts one in mind of the eugenics of Nazi Germany. The demand to yield to MANDATORY injection of a foreign substance into a human body under circumstances that highly intelligent specialists in all fields of scientific endeavor consider to be, at the very minimum, highly controversial, cannot AND WILL NOT be tolerated.
“Take the Pills, or We’ll Take Your Kids!”
by David Crowe
Jane Doe in Montreal refuses to give toxic, lifelong medication to her two healthy sons, and loses custody of them. Another woman in Montreal hears this and decides to have an abortion.
A woman in Maine has a daughter die on this medication, and finds that the debilitating symptoms she and her son were also experiencing rapidly disappear after stopping. The State takes her to court, but she wins her case.
A couple in Oregon are less fortunate. They are “legally” forced to medicate their infant and the mother forbidden to nurse him! A woman in British Columbia is harassed by social workers who threaten to force her to medicate her two children, and then hastily leaves the province.
A couple in London refuse to test their baby and flee from England after losing their case, fearing that forced medication will follow forced testing.
All these people have one thing in common–both they and their children are HIV-positive. They all reject the need for medication for their condition, and for their HIV-positive children. In fact, they question whether the HIV test indicates an illness at all.
The AIDS Epidemic
To most Canadians, AIDS is something that happens to other people, largely gay men and drug addicts. They have no reason to doubt that HIV is the cause of AIDS, that new drugs are miraculous advances or that the tests for HIV are accurate–unless they test positive, of course.
Just like a diagnosis of terminal cancer, most people are completely unprepared for this shattering moment, and rely on their doctors for advice, which is almost always to get on AIDS drugs immediately to try to stop the virus from its deadly advance. They usually do not question that they will die a painful and early death, but hope that the drugs can buy time.
Canada’s top AIDS scientist, Dr. Mark Wainberg believes that HIV always leads to AIDS. In his opinion, those people who question the accuracy of the HIV tests, or question whether immunosuppressive drugs are wise for a disease characterized by immunsuppression are considered a threat to public health and should be thrown in jail! (1)
Many people would consider a parent refusing AIDS medication to be irresponsible but, considering the fatal nature of the diagnosis, perhaps within their rights to let their child die a natural death, versus gaining a longer, but lower quality life with medication. Few people would consider that Jane Doe is actually behaving more sanely than the doctors. Yet, her do-nothing approach to HIV has worked. 14 years after being found HIV-positive she is still extremely healthy, and has never taken medication.
AIDS and AZT
The oldest, and still most widely prescribed AIDS medications are nucleoside analogs. If DNA is likened to a chain of beads, a nucleoside analog is a broken bead that can attach at one end, but not the other. Nucleoside analogs are supposed to stop retroviruses from being incorporated into DNA, but the inevitable incorporation of a molecule directly into a growing chain of DNA will cause replication of DNA to halt.
One of these nucleoside analogs, AZT, is prescribed to pregnant women to prevent transmission of HIV to their rapidly growing fetuses. It is also prescribed to HIV-positive children. Side effects of nucleoside analogs are similar to chemotherapy–anemia so serious that transfusions are required, bone marrow destruction, peripheral nerve damage, failure of the pancreas, and many others. (2) It is also known that nucleoside analogs can cross the placenta and likely cause cancer, birth defects and mutations. (3)
The Price Of Health
There are several reasons why AIDS doctors and researchers may be so adamant that not taking anti-HIV drugs is irresponsible: money, money and money. Dr. Mark Wainberg, for example, has acknowledged being a shareholder in the Montreal company Biochem Pharma that manufacturers 3TC, one of the drugs that Jane Doe’s children are believed to be taking. While the income from one patient is probably not significant to him, the impression that every rational person supports taking them is worth millions. HIV/AIDS is worth billions of dollars to doctors, researchers, hospitals and manufacturers–far out of proportion to the number of people affected in Canada (1,751 at the peak in 1993, declining to 279 in 1998. (4)
If it becomes legitimate to question whether HIV tests are accurate, whether HIV always leads to AIDS, whether AIDS is always fatal without medication and whether anti-HIV drugs are useful, the entire infrastructure will collapse. While that would be the end of the career of men like Dr. Mark Wainberg, for Jane Doe this would be the end of her nightmare.
Sidebar: One Woman’s True Story
Jane Doe has been through hell ever since she had her first child about 8 years ago. When one son came down with a chest infection (variously diagnosed as bronchitis or mild pneumonia) in 1999, the entire weight of the medical, social service and legal establishment was thrown on her. It was only through the major financial support of the US-based International Coalition for Medical Justice (www.icmj.org) that she was able to fight back. Even so, after the involvement of several lawyers and tens of thousands of dollars, Jane Doe lost custody of her two sons. Her parents were placed in the horrible position of providing the three-drug AIDS cocktail to them several times a day. If the children vomit after taking the drugs (a common reaction), they must be given again. If the children refuse to take the drugs, they must be forced. If the children have diarrhea, that is just the price they have to pay. Nobody knows how long the children can live while taking these drugs, which have acknowledged fatal side effects, but that does not stop doctors from almost universally and absolutely recommending them.
Horror story of forced drugging A mother’s heart breaking testimonial
I want you to take a look at: Ruchika case: Shock, anger over teen molestor’s sentence
In India for molesting and forcing the child to commit suicide one can get only six months prison term after 19 years of trial. However, the offender can evade the prison term by paying a bail of less than $200. I figured out that India is the new SODOM & GOMORRAH
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.”
Do you know what witchcraft is? Witchcraft is seeking help or guidance from any spiritual source other than God. There are only two sources of spiritual power: God or Satan. Ultimately there is only ONE source of power because the only power Satan has is that which God has given him (Luke 4:6). If it’s not the spiritual power of God’s Holy Spirit, then you are dealing with the Devil. It’s as simple as that folks. Anytime you here someone using words like “spirits” or “spiritual” without mentioning Jesus Christ or the Bible, run as fast as you can. The Devil is a spirit, just as God is the Holy Spirit. Our battles in this life (according to the Bible) are ultimately against the Devil (Ephesians 6:12). The Devil works inside people’s hearts to lead them to do horrible things. The Devil can’t make anyone do anything, but he inspires them with evil to the point where they do his will without hesitation. This is the woeful danger of making witchcraft look innocent and fun to young people.
All forms of horoscopes, Tarot cards, psychics, palm readings, fortune telling, crystal balls, Ouija boards, astrology, worshipping or contacting the dead, and sorcery are of the devil. “Sorcery” is an interesting word in the Bible. It is derived from the same Hebrew word that our word “pharmacy” today comes from. Hence, sorcery is the use of drugs as a medium to contact the demonic world. If you’ve ever spoken with someone who was a serious drug addict, they can tell you of the demonic experiences they had while high on drugs. I have talked with such people who claim that they saw demons and unbelievable nightmares. Drugs will mess you up quickly.
I have written this article to solemnly WARN anyone who may be reading this to… PLEASE stay as far away as you can from the evil things I’ve just shared with you.
Christianity is the only faith in the world that is intolerant of all other faiths. This is because the Word of God is adamant that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the ONLY way to God the Father. John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” Wiccans, as do Muslims and Judaizers, deny that Jesus is the Christ. In so doing they have chosen the Lake of Fire as their eternal punishment, where they will be tormented DAY AND NIGHT . . . Revelation 20:10 and 15, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever… And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
The issue of witchcraft devices such as Harry Potter is an issue of Biblical separation. All Christians are to separated from the heathen works of darkness…
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
