The incredible story of how leopard Diabolo became Spirit - Anna Breytenbach, "animal communicator".


Demonstration of how she was able to speak to big miserable cat and correct what was needed.

- Changed his name from Diablo to Spirit
- Reassured him that in his new home he was to be respected and not abused
- That his concern for 2 cubs from his previous home were well taken cared of.

And they sell DVDs and you may attend work shops.

This is a testimony of an animal expert care taker who learned animal communications.

So maybe those fantasy cartoons and legends of people communicating clearly with animals is true and teachable.

Amazing.

The Chinese started making calendars more than 4,000 years ago. They relied more on the moon then because the sun (earth's solar orbit) was not very reliable yet at that time. Eventually when the Earth's solar orbit stabilized more, adjustments were made for the Chinese calendar to be Lunar - Solar. By 1912, the Gregorian calendar was stable enough for China to use it as the official national calendar.

If humans had been "human" for at least 200,000 years, how come our oldest reliable (Chinese) calendar is only some 4,000 years old? Something to think about.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 Everyone!

Most powerful Typhoon (HAIYAN) in recorded history made landfall... in the Philippines.  Now.

And the very first strike hit over Guiuan, Samar.

The beach / provincial paradise I had just taken a vacation in just last October 25 to 31,  2013

I will post my vacation pictures and my account of this cool tropical paradise now just being destroyed by this Typhoon, and the email I sent to my family being so enchanted with this place... Guiuan Samar.  I intentionally did not blog about this place because I do not want this place to explode in tourism like Boracay... seems they won't be get up for a few more years after this.  I hope the new friends I made there will survive, I'm resigned to the fact they will ask for monetary help after this.

I'm pretty sure the nipa hut where I stayed for a few days is destroyed by now.  The people there have been uncontactable by cell phone since yesterday afternoon... probably the cell phone companies turned off their equipment.

My cousin in Boronggan city, Samar also facing the Pacific Ocean took refuge in his home town of Catbalogan where they are protected by mountains.  His parents are stuck in Tacloban City where the eye of the typhoon is hitting right now.

I'm in Manila and we just have light rains.  Typhoon will be grazing us maybe in a few more hours.

Super Typhoon Haiyan Hits Philippines.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Suggest Foods High in SULFUR?
« on: November 05, 2013, 11:12:43 am »
I've been listening to oneradionetwork.com and this resource speaker Tony Pantelleresco and he and the host Patrick Timpone are ecstatic of Sulfur.  Also there was a resource person the other time that was the Sulfur guy and he says sulfur is depleted in our soils and farm lands.

So a lot of sulfur supplementation has been giving people very good results.  MSM, organic sulfur, eggs, garlic...

I'm looking into experimenting with raw paleo foods high in sulfur... please give your suggestions, share your experiences, etc.

Yesterday we had an issue with the VPS hosting allegedly running out of bandwidth.

I think it was an accounting error on their part, they allege it was a ddos.

I paid for additional bandwidth to get this going.

But at the same time while we were down i ran a backup in one of my dedicated servers.

i made a note not to post yet, but there were some posts.

So I had to manually copy them to this now restored server.

So you might see a good number of posts by me, but I acknowledge there that those were your posts.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  These things happen.

General Discussion / High Fat
« on: October 04, 2013, 09:46:10 am »
RAW-AL :

Does anyone eat high fat?

I did high meat for quite awhile after I took up the raw diet, but I was wondering if the high fat is useful?

Is the smell as strong? My wife objects strenuously to this part of the high foods.

-------------

Dr. D:

Sometimes my fat gets a little high smelling and tasting and I don't care for it nearly as much as fresh fat. Usually it dries out first though and just gets really hard. I think this is oxidized fat right? PP says there is a hormetic effect in a little bit of oxidized fat,but I doubt its healthy to eat as much high/oxidized fat as high meat.

---------------

van :

I agree that high fat will mostly be oxidized fat, and hormetic effects are sure to be difficult to ever know about for sure.   I've got big slabs of fat hanging in my fridge, and they do dry out (water removal due to low humidity).  I have been tasting every day or so to see if I can detect oxidation.   I do though wash vigorously in warm running water when in doubt as the oxidative parts would be that on the outside (I also wash it due to it coming to me in vacuum plastic).  I'd stick with high meat.      The fat on any killed animal is first to get eaten along with organs.  Thus in nature I think it would be a rarity at least for animals to have developed over time eating much fat that had any age to it.

----------------

Dr. D.

Fat on the animal is usually covered between the muscle and skin, so yes it is usually the first part eaten if going in through the skin. Or in the odd case of finding an animal that was killed and left for a few days so the muscle meat is high, the fat would not be exposed to any air in the meantime so it would not oxidize. That's how animals hang for weeks and the fat is not dried out at the end.

Fat and air just don't seem to mix.

General Discussion / How to eat cartilage, tendons, and collagen raw.
« on: October 04, 2013, 09:37:12 am »
I wanted to start a post about tips, tricks, and advice to eat the tough parts raw (IMO The Best) of the Animal such as Tendons, Ligaments, Cartilage, Bone and Collagen.

My first experiment was a success. I soaked a Lamb Knuckle in a quart of spring water with the juice of Two Limes for two days in the fridge. Then I left it at room temperature for 12 hours and consumed it for breakfast. I was able to get about half the desired collagen parts with a kitchen knife and now realize I need some better tools. Does anyone have any advice for good tools to use to get at the tough parts from the bones?

The first picture is the lamb knuckle soaking for two days before I eat it. Then the second is after I spent an hour on it with my teeth and a small kitchen knife serrated.

For those of you who are at all interested in raw food diets, I have
just received word that Aajonus Vonderplanitz -- who had written at
least two books on a raw diet system called the Primal Diet, a diet that
was essentially a raw Paleolithic diet, but one that included very large
amounts of raw animal foods and who had also lectured on the subject --
apparently died within the past 24 hours at his home in Thailand due to
an accidental fall.

The news of Aajonus's death has been slowly breaking on raw food groups
over the past two hours.

I extend my condolences to his loved ones.

with care,
--Vinny

--------------------------

Tragic News to the Primal Dieters and Community: According to Jeff Slay, Aajonus fell from his second story balcony at his home in Thailand when it gave way.

He suffered a broken spine and internal bleeding and was taken to the hospital where he died. I am awaiting more details but Jeff is unavailable right now for call and texted this information to Renee Bental.

Health / All Malaria Ends Now with MMS Technology
« on: July 30, 2013, 11:14:47 am »
BIG BIG BIG! Can you handle the truth? This will cure all the Malaria in Palawan. Which of the NGOs, the DOH and the Red Cross will bring this to Palawan? All Malaria cured in 24 - 48 hours with just drinking a cup of MMS in water. For your own children of course you can handle the truth. But for other people's children? The knee jerk reaction is that this will cause a population explosion in Palawan. (and the continent of AFRICA) But for your own children you should keep MMS for your own consumption whenever you need it. MALARIA ENDS NOW.

LEAKED: Proof the Red Cross Cured 154 Malaria Cases with MMS

I've lately been exposed to magnet therapy and magnetic pulse therapy and I've been reading the literature and magnetic pulsers seem to ROCK.

Seems Magnetic Pulsers imitate nature lost conditions so with this optimal input we humans should be healing / regenerating at more optimal "paleo" rates.

See literature here http://www.magneticpulser.us/

For those who live in nature, seems this is just another good thing you always get, but some of us are still stuck in the cities.

Anyone use these magnetic pulser gadgets?

To our American friends.
How and when will idiotic laws like these  be changed / fixed / destroyed?

Food rights activists from around North America will meet at the Sauk County Courthouse in this tiny town on May 20 to support Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger and food sovereignty. Hershberger, whose trial begins that day, is charged with four criminal misdemeanors that could land this husband and father in county jail for up to 30 months with fines of over $10,000...

The Wisconsin Department of Agricultural Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) targeted Hershberger for supplying a private buying club with fresh milk and other farm products.

DATCP has charged Hershberger with, among other things, operating a retail food establishment without a license. Hershberger repeatedly rejects this, citing that he provides foods only to paid members in a private buying club and is not subject to state food regulations.

Hershberger says:

    There is more at stake here than just a farmer and his few customers -- this is about the fundamental right of farmers and consumers to engage in peaceful, private, mutually consenting agreements for food, without additional oversight.

“A Naked Ape Would Have Fewer Parasites” posits that “humans evolved hairlessness to reduce parasite loads, especially ectoparasites that may carry disease.” --- interesting.



Is clothing crushing us? Are we trapped in tomb-like textiles, exiling our flesh from experiencing the environment? Are we atrophying our epidermis, our senses, our neuro-intelligence?

If you put a plaster cast on a broken arm the skin starves for Vitamin D, the muscles weaken due to strangled range of motion, the nerve synapses depress to a whimper of their former joy. Twenty-first century hominids? We shroud our entire skin palette except for face, neck and hands - we obliterate symbiosis with the planet.

We hide in cocoons, when we could be free as butterflies.

Home made organic ice cream / raw ice cream with how to guide, sourcing and pictures. It is summer and ice cream just fills in that need for cool raw fats and hydration and nutrition. Purist raw paleo dieters may not like this, but I have an entire house hold to feed. This organic raw ice cream was made possible via a convergence of our house hold contributions...

Hot Topics / Dirty Electricity and What to Do About It
« on: March 31, 2013, 10:25:58 am »
Why I immediately latched on to this concept of dirty electricity:

I have been hunting all forms of illness root causes, pollutants and healing protocols for years. There are electrical gadgets used for healing and they absolutely work, at the same time then bad electricity can, may and do cause illness. I’ve been a network administrator since 1986 and in those times we were very much careful that all computers were encased, enclosed, that cables were shielded or twisted and had magnetic shields on some of them. Wifi in the beginning was suspect but its convenience with a plethora of new gadgets makes people turn a blind eye to wifi dangers.

For many years I have been servicing, making websites of the Philippines electrical engineering organizations: www.iiee.org.ph , www.specs.org.ph , and www.apqi.ph and before I even got wind of Dr. Sam Milham’s work I had interviewed electrical engineers at apqi.ph for their annual global power quality conferences. There they briefed me on how the electrical power grids today were not designed for the new devices, the variable speed motors, the CFLs (compact fluorescent lights), inverters, chargers, computers, new TVs and other electronic devices were causing havoc, bad power quality and causing damage to their distribution system. That in the future, the manufacturers of the new devices need to have built in filters to be able to return clean electricity to building and house wirings and the grid.

So it was just amazing for me to experience this convergence of dirty electricity concepts myself… from the side of health, from the side of the electrical industry where I am both privy.

Off Topic / Cyprus Bailout: Welcome To Another Great Depression

Cyprus Bailout: Welcome To Another Great Depression

So, this is going to be a very sour reading of what has happened in Cyprus this weekend. It will also be a very partisan one, possibly even a partial one. But if Milton Friedman and Anna Schwartz were right in their insistence that it was actually the Federal Reserve that caused the Great Depression (which is something that Ben Bernanke himself has insisted that the Fed will not repeat) then one way of interpreting what has happened is that the European Central Bank has just set us all up for another Depression. The trigger is that “tax” of a little over 6% on all depositors.

This isn’t an analysis that you’ll be able to get all economists to sign up to. But the basic story told by Friedman and Schwartz in “A Monetary History of the United States” was that the 1929 crash was indeed a serious crash. But it would not have led to the Great Depression without the Federal Reserve making some serious mistakes. Two of which were to allow the intertwined collapses of both the money supply and the banking system. Given that it is the banks that create credit and thus the wider money supply they are, to a great extent, the same thing.

The actual process was the series of bank runs that happened through the early 1930s. The problem is that in a fractional reserve banking system banks are inherently unstable. The fractional refers to the fact that when you deposit $100 with one they don’t then keep that $100 in the safe. They take a guess at how much they need in the safe (OK, it’s an informed guess, but it is a guess) for when people turn up demanding their cash and the rest of it they lend out to other people. This is how companies, mortgages and business loans are financed (please, we don’t need to go into “ but loans finance deposits” and all that: it might even be true but it’s irrelevant here).

Which means that if everyone does turn up at the same time demanding their cash then the bank cannot pay out and goes bust. This is, you’ll recall, one of the major plot devices in “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Your money isn’t in the bank, it’s in the house of your neighbour down the street.

Thus banks are inherently unstable institutions. There’s even an architectural thought that the reason that bank buildings are always so imposing is to fool us about this inherent fragility.

What Friedman pointed out was that in the early 1930s many banks were indeed bust. But many more were not in fact so: they were brought down by people thinking they might be and thus turning up en masse to demand their money: a bank run. The solution to which is to have deposit insurance. The government, via the offices of the central bank, agrees to fund banks with as much cash as they need in order to be able to pay off depositors. It’s slightly more complex than that but not much. There are limits as to how much any one depositor can get back for example.

So, we had a problem, bank runs, brought on by the simple nature of fractional reserve banking. We have a solution, deposit insurance. Something which isn’t free by the way. The FDIC certainly charges the banks for it in the US and depositors pay it by getting a lower interest rate than they otherwise would.

And we pretty much didn’t have bank runs after we had deposit insurance. We certainly didn’t have retail bank runs (those much larger commercial depositors, who weren’t insured, did kill a few banks, but we didn’t see crowds of retail customers fighting for their life’s savings outside shuttered branches).

But please note the central part of Friedman’s argument. Yes, there was the crash. Yes, there would have been a deep and painful recession as a result. But the tipping of that recession into depression was a result of the cascading series of bank failures in the absence of deposit insurance: that led to the calamitous shrinking of credit and the money supply.

So let us now look at Europe and the eurozone. Certainly there’s been a crash (or even a Crash). We’ve so far avoided the depression part (although not everywhere. Greece is certainly in one, Spain possibly and looking out my window at rural Portugal I see certain signs of a reversion to a non-cash economy.) but the important question is whether we manage to continue to do so?

Clearly, there are more ways to get into a depression than just cascading bank failures. The end point of all out war is another just as an example. But, again if we buy Friedman’s explanation, we know that cascading bank failures will cause one. And the way not to have those is deposit insurance. So, what have they just done in Cyprus? They’ve removed deposit insurance. They’ve therefore just removed our defence against bank runs and thus cascading bank failures.

Yes, I do know, they’ve called it a tax: but here we’ve got to make reference to that duck thing. The difference between a 6% or more “tax” on your bank deposit and a failure of the previously agreed deposit insurance to protect your deposit is quackery enough that it’s a duck.

As I’ve said before the importance of this is moot at present. It depends on who believes what. If the citizenry believe that they don’t have deposit insurance any more (whether we call this a tax or a duck) then we will see more mass withdrawals from banks and we will see more bank failures. And cascading bank failures are exactly the thing that will tumble us into a new depression.

I had actually thought that we’d seen peak stupidity already in this euro crisis. The state guarantee by Ireland of all bonds and deposits in Irish banks. Note, they guaranteed absolutely without limit. That has oft been marked as an incredibly silly thing to do by people vastly cleverer than I am. But my worry is that this Cypriot decision is even worse. Even if this “tax” is never used again, even if it really is a one off, some significant portion of the populace simply aren’t going to trust government protestations of deposit insurance in the future. Which will, inevitably, lead to cascading bank failures.

My worry is that some future Friedman, some monetary scholar of the future, will write in her history of these times that it was this, this one action, this one moment, that was the gibbering insanity that crashed the system for a decade or more.

Yes, this is very gloomy, quite possibly much too so. But one of the strangenesses of this age is that the Federal Reserve is on record as stating that Friedman’s analysis of the early 1930s was pretty much spot on. Unfortunately, the European Central Bank is well known as never having quite bought that analysis. And they’re most certainly not acting as if they do.

Primal Diet / Raw Cheese: Types, Brands, Sources, Reviews
« on: March 14, 2013, 12:17:58 am »
I'm experimenting with Vitamin K2 sources lately and the lady who is a K2 proponent says that Brie and Gouda are cheeses with excellent K2 amounts.

I am lucky that the Brie Cheese I bought is a raw cheese: Brie de Meaux (French)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brie_de_Meaux
I just read somewhere that it is illegal to import raw cheese in the USA.

I think Brie tastes pretty good.

All over Metro Manila you can by Brie cheese in Rustan's and Santi's outlets.

Let this thread be a depository of raw cheese discussions.
Types, Brands, Sources, Reviews.

Aajonus Vonderplanitz on RAW CHEESE:

CHEESES, RAW, NO-SALT-ADDED, are made from raw milk and
there is no salt added to the milk. Similar to clay, cheese supplies
concentrations of minerals that bind with radicals and poisons that the
body dumped into the stomach and intestines. Also, cheese draws the
poisons from the blood, nervous and lymphatic systems as they pass
through the stomach and intestines. Unsalted raw cheeses act like a
sponge to absorb those toxins, relieving nausea. Since cheeses lack
most bioactive enzymes, causing dehydration, eating raw fat with
cheese, such as unsalted raw butter or coconut cream, helps prevent
constipation.
