Facebook News Suppresses Headlines – A Reminder to Think for Ourselves
May 16, 2016
A recent revelation that Facebook Inc. suppressed headlines, particularly ones of a conservative bend, in its sidebar news section sparked outrage this past week. People cried foul, news anchors threw up the hands, and by meeting with conservative leaders or those who felt his organization did something wrong.
The promise that they would do their best to maintain some semblance of impartiality when it comes to news is all well and good, but every news source has to pay its bills. If things don’t spark interest, or bore the readers they don’t get read. Whenever you have human curation of any type, there’s no way to separate the interests of the group, the individuals and the company from that news.
The factors that contribute to news bias are hard to avoid
The news is a product in the end, and is formed by what Noam Chomsky calls the “Propaganda Model,” in his book “.”

Why paraiba tourmaline is so popular?
May 13, 2016
In 1987 five years of excavations were crowned with success, Heitor Dimas Barbosa stayed with a handful of tourmalines in incredible turquoise color. They were called ‘Paraiba’ in honor of the Brazilian state where they were first discovered.
In two years there was a long-expected event in the exhibition of gemstones in Tucson, USA: the new incredible gem – Paraiba was presented for visitors. After the presentation of this miraculous stone its cost rocketed from several hundred dollars to several thousands. The history of gemstones hadn’t witnessed another case of such rapid growth in cost and popularity.
Almost at once gem hunters flooded into the mine, and within a short period of time they almost completely razed the Paraiba hill – 65 meters high, 400 meters long and 200 meters wide – to the ground.
Earlier this stone with neon color was supposed to be one of a kind and was mined only in Brazil. However,...
From Wonder Drug to Abuse Epidemic, Opioids Yes, But Big Pharma More So, Says Richard Ruhling, MD
May 13, 2016
CNN's article, “From 'Wonder Drug' to Abuse Epidemic” is huge, but it's still just the tip of the iceberg, says Dr. Richard Ruhling, retired physician who once covered another MD on vacation in a 'pain' clinic for a week, but 95% of his patients were addicted to hydrocodone, oxycontin, Percocet, or Xanax, etc.
Most of them had some injury but were allowed to go back to work too soon with an Rx for pain that prevented adequate healing and they became addicted, says Ruhling, who lived with pain after a fractured leg and phlebitis that throbbed at night. Though Ruhling prescribed for others, he declined for himself and let pain tell him what he could do or not do. The body heals if we help it, says Ruhling.
The human propensity for addiction is huge, as illustrated by the problems of alcohol, tobacco, drugs, food, fictional reading or TV, gambling, rock music, sex, shopping—things that excite us can leave us let down and in trouble...
