The War on Drugs began in June 1971 when U.S. Pres. Richard Nixon declared drug abuse to be “public enemy number one” and increased federal funding for drug-control agencies and drug-treatment efforts. At the same time as Nixon declared drug war it’s been alleged that the CIA was trafficking heroin into the United States from Vietnam during the Vietnam war.
About 10 years later Ronald Reagan made the possession of
crack cocaine an even heavier crime. At the same time the CIA was selling cocaine
and crack cocaine to American citizens and were even caught doing so in what became
known as the Iran-Contra affair. This had a huge impact in urban cities with
African Americans being the most affected.
The 1980’s was also a time that saw a huge increase in for
profit prisons as corporations became more interested in making money off
United States prisoners. The increased incarceration of non-violent drug offenders
created an environment where many grew up without a nuclear family. With many
children having one or both parents in prison.
This situation increased poverty in areas that were already
struggling, as well as increasing violence. The effects of the drug war also
made drug dealing a very profitable, dangerous profession. The drug war is the
number one factor in the creation of gangs, with violence related to drugs being
responsible for almost all the mass shootings in the United States. And because
drugs are not regulated it is also responsible for accidental overdoses.
The circumstances of America’s drug war have made the United
States the most heavily prisoned nation in the entire world. Since 1971 the drug
war has cost the American public over a trillion dollars. This isn’t including
the loss in GDP and value to the economy that those incarcerated would have
provided. The history of the drug war is a history of failed policy, with a government
who sold drugs to their own citizens, and then imprisoned them for it.
No one knows how much money the CIA has made off selling
drugs around the world, and where all the money has gone.
Broccoli is an extremely healthy cruciferous vegetable.
While being low in calories and a perfect diet food, it is also full of many
vitamins and minerals, as well as being fibrous. Most of the vitamins and minerals
in broccoli are more bioavailable when cooked, however cooking can decrease
other beneficial molecules in broccoli. So, it’s best to eat both raw and
A cup of cooked broccoli offers as much vitamin C as an orange
and is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins B1, B2, B3,
B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamin k, folate and zinc. Making broccoli
very beneficial to cell mitochondria helping produce energy while protecting
the functioning of one’s cell, as well as helping lowering blood pressure, decreasing
bad cholesterol, helping heal wounds and form collagen, body tissue, and bone,
as well providing antioxidant support.
Some of the more interesting effects of broccoli come from Sulforaphane
which has been associated with various health benefits and may beneficially
affect cancer, heart disease, diabetes, mental illness, digestion, and
age-related cognitive decline.
Broccoli is also very well known for its anti-estrogenic phytochemicals
which can help decrease estrogen helping increase testosterone, which can have
a wide array of beneficial effects such as increased muscle mass, and a
decrease in various forms of cancer.
Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables around and goes
very well with many dishes. So whether your dieting, or trying to build muscle,
you may want to consider adding more broccoli to your diet.
5G is the proposed 5th generation cellular network, and it is technology that is largely still in development but is currently being deployed in several cities. Promoters of 5G technology promise faster data rates along with reduced energy and financial cost. However, 5g may be dangerous to humans and wildlife, yet the media is trying to spin it as a conspiracy.
While 5g is currently making way in several larger cities
around the world, telecom companies are mostly only rolling out low band and
medium band 5g, which uses most of the same frequencies as 4g. Telecom
companies have managed to convince most the public that almost all non-ionizing
radiation is safe. The difference between ionizing radiation, and non-ionizing
radiation is that non-ionizing does not have enough energy to remove electrons
from atoms and molecules. An example of Ionizing radiation would be x-rays, and
radiation from nuclear weapons, examples of non-ionizing radiation would be radio
waves, microwaves. However, it’s very clear that just because radiation isn’t
ionizing doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous, such as with microwaves.
To make 5g faster than 4g they are going to have to use radio
waves up to the 300ghz range, in comparison 4g goes up to 6ghz. This means the
radio waves emitted by 5g transponders will be shorter, allowing them to send
more information faster. However, these waves do not travel as far, and
penetrate deeper into the skin, and one’s cells. With the U.S. Army
using the same ghz range that 5g uses for crowd dispersal weaponry.
5g will have a huge impact on all biological life on Earth,
such as with birds who can see electromagnetic radiation, and use the earth’s
natural magnetic energy for migration. Many have even claimed that birds have
died in mass during 5g tests. Many say this is just conspiracy with the
government and corporations denying such tests. While the stories of birds
dying due to 5g tests may very well be conspiracy, the government and
corporations have never been known for telling the truth.
While mainstream media is trying to portray 5g as being
perfectly safe for humans there is already much evidence proving otherwise.
With a study showing that even contemporary cellphones lower bone mass in
humans, with some studies suggesting current cellphone use causing brain
cancer. There have also been instances of increased cancer risks for those
around cell phone towers as well. When studied its been shown that 2g, and 3g
radiation cause various forms of cancer, DNA damage, and lower weights in rats.
However, it’s interesting to note that some of the rats lived longer on average
than those in the control group.
No one without a doubt can claim that they know how 5g will affect humans, and animals. But it is very evident that it may have certain negative effects, and that they should be studied. However 5g’s benefits may outweigh 5g’s risk, but what it really comes down too is that risks shouldn’t be swept under the rug.
Many different countries are trying to fight the rollout of 5g. For instance, many states, and cities have tried to ban 5g in the United States, yet because of federal laws protecting telecom companies they have been unable to stop them, and occurrences like this are taking place around the world.
While growing magic mushrooms may be legal in many countries such as: Austria, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Bulgaria, and Samoa, and is unenforced and is legal in several other countries for personal use, it is illegal in others and we do not condone any illegal activities.

Social media has completely changed the way the world has
operated over the years, for better and for worse. While it has had the ability
to bring people together it has also drug people apart.
Social media is used by most of the world, with over 3.1
billion users. This makes it super connective which allows us to keep contact with
friends and family; while also letting us connect with new people around the
world. This connection helps people spread news faster, connect for events and
world issues, and get educated 1st hand about other people’s
cultures. But the same mechanisms that make all that possible also allows for
people to share fake news, while connecting and giving people that share violent
tendencies, and dangerous, hateful ideologies a wider audience around the world.
Social media is one the most addictive things in the world,
with humans releasing the same chemicals using social media such as Facebook
and twitter, as they do when using addictive drugs like heroin. This makes many
people strive for acceptance, and validation on social media. While the average
person uses social media about two hours a day, there are those who spend up to
9 hours or more a day on social media who have an addiction. With those that
spend more than 5 hours a day on their phone being 2x as likely to exhibit
Due to the addictive nature of social media, there are many
who get absorbed into it and will start to neglect other parts of their lives.
Causing them to become distant from their friends and family, and preventing
them from getting enough physical activity, or eating a proper diet. Addictive
social media behavior is also strongly related to narcissistic personality
traits and low self-esteem, with young, single females being most strongly
associated with displaying addictive social media behavior.
Social media allows us too see highlights of other people’s
lives and compare them to our own, this can make many peoples lives seem droll
or boring in comparison, often not showing the struggle that others may be
going through. This makes people idealize other people’s lives while feeling
depressed about their own. However, it can also help people find ways to better
themselves and connect with role models that can help them with their lives.
But there is a certain cruelty in social media, with over 34
percent of people reporting being cyberbullied at sometime in their life, and
87 percent of young people reporting seeing cyber bullying. With 64 percent of
those that have been cyberbullied, saying it has affected their ability to
learn and feel safe at school. Studies have shown that bullying has been linked
to causing depressive and violent traits, with those that have been cyberbullied
often developing symptoms of depression, social anxiety, body dysmorphia, and
other mental issues; which sometimes cause them harm to themselves or others.
When it comes to relationships, social media can have both
positive and negative effects. Many people often stalk their significant other
and become jealous of one’s online friends, or ex’s. With people often comparing
their relationships to how others portray their relationship online. Social networks
have has also made it significantly easier for people to cheat on their
significant others, with networks specifically designed to do so. Social media
though has also been used to create new relationships, with an estimated 39% of
new relationships starting online. With studies showing that relationships that
start online and lead to marriage often having a lower divorce rate compared to
those who met in person. Often when relationships do end social media has some
form of impact with 30% of divorces involving Facebook in some sort of way.
Use of social media has also been known to cause dangerous
distractions, with 90% of drivers admitting to using social media, and 26% of
car accidents involving cellular devices. So, while social media is a powerful
tool to connect people together, it can also be quite dangerous, to not just
the individual, but to society if used inappropriately.
The (2019-nCov) is a brand new virus that has never been seen before, so a lot of information will change in the coming months as more info is available and the virus evolves.
The (2019-nCov) is similar to SARS and MERs using spiked glycopotein’s to enter the viruses RNA into the host cells of humans.
The virus originated in the city of Wuhan in China with the first diagnosis being on December 8th 2019. The virus is thought to have come from an exotic meat market in the area, from either a snake, or bat or possibly a virus that had once infected both.
As of July 27 there is currently ~3,000 cases officially diagnosed with over 80 dead. With experts estimating that there are 30,000 – 100,000 people currently infected who may not yet be showing symptoms, and currently there are videos showing over crowded hospitals with people people being treated in the hallway and people laying dead in the public and on the street suggesting the situation may be worse than has been said. With many videos being censored by the Chinese government
The basic reproduction number for this virus is currently estimated to be inbetween 3 – 5 meaning for every person who gets the virus it is currently believed they may transfer it to 3-5 different people.
While some may not get symptoms for others it can be very severe and include fever, vomitting, labored breathing, and pnemunia.
While a mortality rate has not been officially established many media outlets are saying 3%, however a peer reviewed medical paper in the Lancet that followed some of first (2019-nCov) patients put it at a high 15% mortality rate, but only time will tell.
On January 23rd Chinese governments closed down all transportation to and from and inside Wuhan and since then 20 other cities now have restricted travel in China. Restricting over 50 million people.
The once busy streets in these chinese cities are now ghost towns with many businesses closed, and reports of people running low on supplies.
Many places in cities are now required to use thermometers as checkpoints to be able to travel. This includes international flights around the world, while this is what most countries are doing it may do little to help.
The incubation period (time from exposure to developing symptoms) of the virus is between 2 to 14 days and it remains contagious during this time meaning people that are sick can easily get through checkpoints, with several countries already seeing infections: Thailand, United States, Taiwan, Australia, Macau, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, France, Canada, and Vietnam.
There have been no deaths from the virus reported outside China.
Officials have confirmed that the virus has been transmitted person-to-person, but it remains unclear how easy it is to contract from another infected individual, and most virtually all cases thus far can be traced back to Wuhan.
There are no specific treatments for coronavirus infections and most people will recover on their own, according to the CDC. So treatment involves rest and medication to relieve symptoms.
There is currently no cure but a development for vaccine has already started through many different organizations and the current hope is to have a vaccine ready for human trials by April of this year.
Remember this virus is very contagious be careful to wash your hands, wear protective gear, and avoid others if the infection exists in your area.
On December 20th, 2019 the Space Force was Officially signed into law as the sixth branch of the United States Military.
Officially making the United States Space Force the first new armed service since the airforce was established in 1947.
This is leaving a lot of people wondering what exactly is the Space Force and what is it going to do.
Is it supposed to be about protecting us against a possible alien invasion? not really.
Or is it about possibly taking the wars of our world to space? Well kind of but not quite.
To really understand the purpose of the United States Space Force we’ll have to take a quick look at the history and purposed future of this new military branch.
The United States actually first became interested in the militarizing outer space during WWII with space activities beginning immediately afterwards under the United States Air-force.
But R&D was slow as many didn’t believe in the importance of space projects, until October 4th, 1957 when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1 the worlds first satellite.
This was highlight in the Cold War and an event that threw rocket fuel on the space race, and what made the united states determined to get to the moon first.
Fast forward to the 1980’s at this time there were several different space programs within the U.S. and the Air Force realized they needed a central organization for it’s space program so on the 1st of September 1982.
The Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) was created as an Air Force major command, this organization would later become the United States Space Force.
According to AFSPC, its mission was to
“Provide resilient and affordable space capabilities for the Joint Force and the Nation.”
What this mainly consisted of was the launching and operation of satellites for the use communications, surveillance, intelligence, satellite based weather, missile warning, and navigation.
Now that the Air Force Space Command has been absorbed into the United States Space Force the overall mission is said to be to
Provide freedom of operation for the United States in, from, and to space. Provide prompt and sustained space operations. Protect the interests of the United States in space. Deter aggression in, from, and to space, and conduct space operations
“organize, train, and equip space forces in order to protect U.S. and allied interests in space and to provide space capabilities to the joint force. Its responsibilities include developing military space professionals, acquiring military space systems, maturing the military doctrine for space power, and organizing space forces to present to the Combatant Commands.”
In the future this could allow for the development for space ships capable of military combat, and other space weapons as well as set up a US military organization for future ventures into space in search of resources.
The United States Space Service will start with 16,000 members with 200 standing up the Headquarters now located in the pentagon, much of the work for the next 5 years will be the transferring of existing infrastructure.
So while the USSF will take control of many military functions in outer space such as those once delegated to the air-force space command, it may be awhile into the future before we see our servicemen and women in outer space.
Homelessness had been around since the beginning of mankind. While some become homeless due to factors beyond their control, others become homeless on their own accord such as philosopher Diogenes, or Siddhārtha Gautama also known as the Buddha.
Homelessness and Westward Expansion.
During the eras of colonization, and westward expansion, and times prior, homelessness for many was easily combatable. During these times manifest destiny was still part of the conscious mind within society. This meant for many finding a place to live was as simple as finding an empty parcel of land, and being capable of building and maintaining your own home.
The beginning of westward expansion all started to come to fruition at the end of the Civil War. Many prior slaves were left with the expectation of reparations from such political sentiments such as “forty acres and a mule”. Such acts however never came to be. This left many people unfairly displaced, and a large portion of wealth left to an undeserving autocratic class of citizens. While the outcome of the civil war was supposed to end slavery and bring about a egalitarian form of government, it failed short of those endeavors. This created a widespread form of debt slavery, such as sharecropping which became very popular after the Civil War.
Homelessness and The End of Manifest Destiny.
Eventually the times of manifest destiny ended. Due to the technological revolutions of the industrial age many people were displaced from rural areas. This was consequence of farm work drying up, due to technology making labor easier. As these people went broke, corporations slowly seized properties, and moved most labor jobs to urban areas. At first this worked remarkably well for many. With the creation of the first automobile, steam engines, and the construction of massive infrastructure projects within cities, there seemed to be no shortage of work. However life for the urbanites of that time quickly changed after the events of the Great Depression.
Many of the manufacturing jobs that originally were a hallmark of urban cities dried up after the end of WWII. This had a huge impact on the city dwellers who relied on these jobs, with no work and not enough jobs with livable wages, they were forced out of their homes. This impoverishment led to a massive increase in homelessness. Old warehouse became a haven for squatters and battlegrounds for gangs who relied on criminal activities for wealth.
Homelessness and Civil Rights.
All of this happened around the same time as the civil rights and women’s rights movement. This was an absolute necessity that helped to quell some of the atrocities that had arisen from the separatist movements, gender inequality, and Jim Crow laws of the time. This helped provide more equality to minorities and women. Giving them greater access to equal rights and an increased capacity for upward mobility within the work place, that many were refusing to provide. However this also created a huge influx of workers.
While this could have been used as a good thing, corporations used this to their advantage to disenfranchise the middle class. Due to the overly saturated markets the majority of new workers were willing to work for less,. This same occurence happened during the end of slavery. This competition drove down the competive pay that was seen as a hallmark of American society. While this could have been used as a way to lower the traditional 9-5 working hours, it was used as a weapon to inflate the currency, and lower the standards of living, while increasing the costs of living. This allowed banks to create huge markets for gentrification.
Homelessness and Consumerism.
Consumerism had quickly become a widespread tool used in media. Corporations saw nothing but profits. Many of these business’s shipped overseas to lower the cost of their production even further. This decreased even more manufacturing jobs, and has been a factor for the trade deficit.
Corporations used mass media as an advertisement wing, while using lobbyists to spread propaganda to help form laws with their profits in mind, rather than the general welfare of mankind. Banks used this consumerist market as an opportunity to increase their wealth acquisition by offering subprime loans to people they knew wouldn’t be able to afford it. Eventually leading to the economic crash and bailout. The laws that were formed to prevent another bailout and to decrease banking corruption eventually lead to a decrease in homelessness over the past decade.
Politics of Homelessness.
Past politics played a major role in the formation of the huge homeless population of past eras. Richard Nixon set up the war on drugs to destabilize minorities, and what he coined as the “hippie movement”. Many of these people were non violent drug users, this created a surge in Federal Prisoners. Many of these people were business, and home owners who lost everything after being placed into the system. This increased poverty and crime especially with in urban areas.
The military at the time was also involved in the Vietnam war, which caused more domestic homelessness in a variety of ways. First off the military personnel was used to transport illegal drugs into the United States, this was made quite famous by Frank Lucas. Many allege that the CIA at the time was directly involved with selling drugs to America as well.
Vietnam War and Homelessness
The Vietnam war by itself effected many soldiers negatively. In Vietnam many of them became addicts, many of them suffered from PTSD. Many of them were trying to use drugs as a coping mechanism, but eventually succumbed to addiction. The stress from the PTSD, and addiction left many seeking psychiatric care. Due to their mental imbalances, many struggled for gainful employment and wound up drug users, in mental institutions, on welfare, and homeless.
Following the Nixon administration President Jimmy Carter saw the need of increased mental health care, and signed the Mental Health Systems Act of 1980. However this act was shortly lived as most of the legislation was repealed through the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981 signed by President Ronald Reagan.
Causes of Homelessness
The largest cause of homelessness is economic instability, which is most directly affected by mental illness, addiction, and disability which can all be addressed with proper legislation and funding. Some of the factors cause homelessness are:
Poor public education, which doesn’t properly teach students about how to be economically successful.
Drug addiction which isn’t properly addressed, but overly punished creating a criminal association rather than a relationship that leads to rehabilitation.
Mental illness which often times is left undiagnosed and untreated due to poor health care systems.
Poor support for those that are disabled and incapable of working.
Lack of livable minimum wage.
These situations have been caused by corporations which have used lobbying to get subsidizes to disenfranchise small business owners. Banks who created an economic downfall for their own personal profits, that led to multiple foreclosures, and then made the American public clean up their mess. The government who has purposely armed gangs and sold drugs to it’s own citizens for profit, such as in the Iran-Contra scandal where they purposely created the crack epidemic. Then there is us the American voters who need to stand up and fight against the tyranny that is controlling our people and destroying the health care of the American People.
Homelessness in the Past Decade.
While homelessness has dropped in many areas in the United States, it has risen sharply in certain states. If proper measures are not taken a resurgence maybe on the horizon. As automation increases, jobs become more autonomous and need less, and less people. If we do not make the required changes within society to reflect the trends of those changes homelessness will once again become more commonplace in the United States. Another battle that we must fight is to regain a positive foreign trade balance, having at home manufacturing provides economic stability, and decreases influence from foreign nationals.
Many states, and local business’s have gone to great measures to help the homeless populations. They’ve set up food banks, homeless shelters, and some even provide tents and clothes. These however don’t directly combat the main causes of homelessness, but rather are de facto solutions. While they are of tremendous importance for taking care of our civilization, they don’t do anything to prevent homelessness themselves.
What Should Be Done About Homelessness.
We need to take a hard look at our society, and determine the best course of action. In the United States we already have more houses than homeless, and waste enough food to feed everyone in the United States. If our country was motivated enough to battle these causes homelessness and hunger could easily be eradicated. We have the resources at our disposal to end homelessness the only question is whether or not we will, and the course of action we take to do so.
The Nadex platform allows for many different types of trades. If you’re first starting out with Nadex you might wonder what the difference between trading with a demo account and a live account might be. First and foremost if you don’t get anything else out of this post remember this “Do not start a live account before being profitable in a demo account.”.
Now you may want to repeat that a few times. This will help make sure you do not lose all your money, an blow through your investment capital. Now lets first start with some of the physical differences between Nadex live and Nadex demo accounts.
Physical Difference Between Nadex Live and Nadex Demo Accounts.
Just by taking a quick look at a Nadex demo and live account you should be able to spot a few differences right off the bat. First off you should notice that the order contracts are quite often different sizes. This impacts your ability to use position sizes to make up for previous loses. Almost all contract bid and offer sizes are different when comparing live and demo accounts on Nadex.
The next thing you should notice is that the bid and offer sizes are quite different. Often times from my experiences out of the money trades are more profitable on live accounts in comparision to demo accounts. The reverse also seems to be true quite often where in the money trades are normally less profitable on live in comparison to demo. This is something that can impact your trading strategy immensely. Also you have to take into account that you are actually trading on the market which means you are impacting it even if it is in just the slightest.
The Psychological Difference.
This in my opinion is one of the largest differences. It’s much easier on a demo account to be more logical and to take out emotions. It’s much harder to feel okay with losing $50 dollars or more, and watching yourself lose it in a demo than real life. Many times you will be in trades that may reverse to your original guess, but due to fear you may exit the trade on a loss rather than a win due to fear. One of the biggest things about this market is it’s a logic game, and emotion has to be left out of it. This is incredibly difficult when you’re waging real hard earned money.
Final Difference Between Nadex Live and Nadex Demo Accounts.
The last thing you need to remember between Nadex live and demo accounts is your starting capital. With a Nadex demo account you start of with 25,000 dollars virtual money. Most people however are not going to be starting off with that much capital. This impacts the types of trades you can make and the amount of time you have to get back into profit. However the demo account is an amazing tool to have. Make sure you can get a return on your investment on a demo account before you trade live! Remember for every live trade you make on Nadex there is someone on the other side who has to take that wager, there can only be one loser and one winner per trade. Good Luck on your Nadex Journey!
