Tomorrow Starts Today

The Donald: Crazy or crazy like a fox?

Although from a scientific point of view that most doomsday scenario are mostly unlikely for the near future, there are worldwide signs all over the planet indicating that earth and mankind are now experiencing major changes: a major shift in civilizations is about to happen that started one hundred years ago.

Since the origins of man, many societies have been ruled by religious and spiritual beliefs and, all over the world, for years and years, the Apocalypse, the end of the word has been predicted. It doesn’t take a nuclear physicist or a spiritual leader to predict that one day, this earth is going to die. 

All planets die one day and, when this will happen, if there are still men on earth, they will also die. This will be the end of the world, as we know it but certainly not the end of the universe. New planets are born every day and the universe is still expanding. But what about a possible global disaster that may happen in our days that could means the near extinction of man on earth?

History, science, studies and researches teach us that in the past, entire highly developed populations and civilizations suddenly disappeared from the surface of the planet on behalf of natural, biological disasters and human behaviors. Entire species disappeared from the surface of the planet in a very short time period, even in minutes and all of this, without any warning.

If this happen in the past, why can it not happen today?

So Tired

“I’m so tired”

These days, it seems everyone is exhausted, that everyone needs some time off.

Even though exhaustion may feel like a by-product of our new and modern era, the reality is that at any point in history, people have experienced exhaustion and theorized it in many different ways. From ancient Greece through the Renaissance, Industrial Revolution, post-war era, to modernity, for each of these era, exhaustion was this hybrid creature, which was not only understood through biological and physical contexts, but at times, also wrapped up in the social and political climates. regardless of the epoch, regardless of whether humans were living in agrarian societies or were bystanders to a world that was modernizing at an unprecedented velocity, people were tired.

Back to the 5th century BCE, Greek physician Galen of Pergamum, building upon Hippocrates’ work, touted the importance of balance between the four bodily “humors” and develop the first theory attempting to define and explain the exhaustion phenomena. For Galen, exhaustion was the result of individual behaviors such as eating the wrong foods, overindulging in sexual activities, and excessive worry. When an excess of black bile threw off the body’s internal scales, the individual exhibited symptoms including lethargy, lack of energy, and sluggishness.

Though some people tended to naturally lean toward melancholia, Galen believed the condition could also be a result of individual behaviors such as eating the wrong foods, overindulging in sexual activities, and excessive worry. For Galen, exhaustion existed in a very holistic realm and parts of that brand of thinking are very much present today. Though the humors have disappeared as a medical model, the holistic theory of balance is something that is still currently practiced in many Eastern models of medicine. Many people also believe that a disrupted body can lead to a disrupted mind.

Over the years, starting in the Middle Ages, exhaustion theories migrated from the medical realm to the church and the responsibility to remain energized was placed solely on the individual. For the religious authorities, exhaustion stemmed from participating in sinful activities that drained energy or submitting to an apathetic attitude that shunned interest in God and the divine good that he created. The solution to exhaustion was simple: upping one’s commitment God and work. In this scenario the individual accountable for lacking the willpower to choose godlier and active pursuits. In the years that followed, exhaustion leaped from one field to the next. During the Renaissance, those ruled by Saturn in their astrological charts were thought to be especially susceptible to fatigue. In the 18th century, it was believed that excessive masturbation depleted one’s energy reserves. It is only in the mid-19th century that medical theories once again took over, when American neurologist George Beard improperly diagnosed and popularized exhaustion as the result of a condition coined as “neurasthenia”.

There is a part of 19th century exhaustion models that still resonates today. While nobody can clearly define the phenomenon, one thing is certain: exhaustion is messy, and the theories behind it do not necessary build on each other. the theories behind exhaustion vacillate between somatic and psychic, between pointing the finger at modernization and placing the blame on the individual. Everyone tends to have one distinct theory that they believe in.

My theory and my solution: too much intellectual masturbation; too much worrying about nothing and everything; stop sweating the small stuff.

I am presently fighting a possibly stage IV cancer. I am undergoing chemotherapy and radiations on a daily basis. In September I will have to submit myself to extensive surgery. My chances for survival: anything between 10 and 53%. Do I worry? Absolutely not!

You want to avoid exhaustion and this burn out sensation: enjoy every day of your life, even the rainy ones. Without rain, there would be no flowers. Don’t sweat the small stuff and make sure not take any bunkum from anyone. Above everything else, stay away from negative people and stay true to yourself.

King Global Earth & Environmental sciences Corporation – Striking this balance, between crop production and environmental impact for future generations, takes real innovation. At King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation, this is what we do.

Our world populations are rapidly expanding. Our planet is not. In a world where too many already go hungry, we, as citizen of the Earth, all have a very daunting challenge on our hands: feeding the estimated nine billion of us who will inhabit Earth by the year 2050 will require food to be grown on roughly the same amount of land that we use for farming today. Fortunately, we have King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation.

King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation is now turning its attention to the study of soil fertility and soil chemistry to help secure and grow the food supply for the future generations. This challenge is not just an agronomic issue; it is also an economic and freedom issue. Many developing countries struggle because their people have very little economic freedom. Agronomy by itself will not solve these issues. Agricultural education will.

At King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation, our first role is to help develop and refine enhanced efficiency soil nutrients and chemical free fertilizers. Our mission is to provide food security for the world using the land we already have. This means applying the right kinds of soil nutrients and chemical free fertilizers in just the right amounts to optimize the balance between crop production and environmental impact for future generations and striking this balance takes real innovation.

With newly developed soil nutrients and chemical free fertilizers we try to optimize the amount of nutrients getting into the plant or tree to help it grow and produce a better quality produce and harvest. By applying technical and scientific innovation, we are now also working on harnessing the power of microbial life that already exist and occur in the environment. to optimize both, the plant itself and the product.

The process begins by identifying precisely which microbial form of life can help naturally stimulate plants and trees to improve their performance in areas such as potency, water and nutrient use efficiency and crop yield. We test our products on plants in the lab, we test them in the greenhouse, and finally, if it proves promising by producing more grain or better fruits, we try it out in the field on a much larger scale.

We will screen thousands of microbial forms and test thousands of soil nutrients to find just a few that work. But it is all worth it, because helping plants grow bigger, better, stronger and faster, brings real, long-term value to society, which brings us back to our mission: doing our part to help feed the world today and tomorrow.

King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation is committed to making long-term investments in science, research and the development of new products and technologies that are going to take and get us there.

There are not a lot of other companies who would both see the potential, and be willing to make that deep financial commitment to this kind of promising Eco-friendly, environmentally sound and systemic technology.

Our partners do and are committed to our success, to our mission in feeding the world, in growing a stronger and better planet.

Alfafa

Genetically modified Alfalfa

If you’re over fifty, you have to be wondering about what kind of mess we are leaving to our children and grandchildren. Especially when it comes to GMO

A genetically modified version of alfalfa is now being sold and planted in fields this spring, and its effects could be wide-spread, pernicious, and impossible to reverse.

Alfalfa is a popular “perennial forage crop” eaten by livestock, especially cows, either on pasture or in preserved forms like hay or feed pellets. It is also an important food source for bees. Alfalfa, while being a nutritious animal feed, also adds nitrogen to the soil while it grows and improves soil health and texture by adding organic matter.

Ten years ago, a version of alfalfa was genetically modified to be resistant to Monsanto’s pesticide Roundup, also known as glyphosate. Like other Roundup Ready crops, this genetically modified alfalfa is meant to allow farmers to spray broad-spectrum herbicides to kill weeds without harming the alfalfa crop.

According to Monsanto, the intent is to allow farmers to use less pesticide. But the effect may ultimately be the opposite: while Roundup Ready crops are relatively new, in many places they have already become weeds. If you grow Roundup Ready soybeans in a field one year, and corn the next, leftover soybean seeds can act as herbicide resistant weeds. Moreover, genetically modified traits are not limited to the crops they are put into.

Most domesticated crops we depend on have wild ancestors and wild relatives with whom they exchange genes and as herbicide-resistant genes move into feral plants, farmers will have to spray more herbicide, not less, to kill these new genetically modified weeds.

Genetically modified alfalfa was at first held back from both Canada and the US markets because of deep concerns about the its long-term effects.

There is no way to isolate a genetically modified alfalfa crop

Bees are amazingly effective pollinators: they move pollen many kilometers. Because bees feed and pollinate alfalfa, there is no way to isolate a genetically modified alfalfa crop in an area where bees cannot carry the genes to an unmodified alfalfa flower.

Once planted, there is no possible way to stop the genetically modified trait from spreading to organic and conventional farms and crops.

Many organic dairy farms depend on alfalfa

Alfalfa is a key species in our pasture and hay fields, along with other perennials like clover. Because it is a perennial, it is reliable. Its deep root systems make it resistant to drought and the challenging whether that climate change is already bringing. But again, the genetically modified trait has turned those very qualities against us. Unlike annual crops, which are mostly finished after a single year if not replanted, the genes in perennials like alfalfa will persist forever. Once released, there is no way to contain it.

How this will ultimately affect organic farmers and our certification is unclear, but it will not be good. Conventional farmers and the land itself may ultimately suffer from a crop that will mean more herbicide-resistant weeds and more pesticides sprayed.

 The Book of Wisdom

The Old Ancient Wisdom Experiment Project

Chapter 1 [Introduction]

Love justice, you that are the judges of the earth. Wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subject to iniquities. Wisdom will flee from the deceitful, and will withdraw herself from thoughts that are without understanding, and she shall not abide when iniquity comes in. For The Spirit of Wisdom is benevolent, and will not acquit the evil speakers from their lips. For The Spirit of Wisdom has filled the whole world: and that, which contains all things, has knowledge of the voice. Therefore whose that speak unjust things cannot be hid, neither shall the chastising judgment. For inquisition shall be made into the thoughts of the wicked: and the hearing of their words shall come to the chastising of their iniquities. For the ear of jealousy hears all things, and the tumult of murmuring shall not be hid. Keep yourselves therefore from murmuring, which profits nothing, and refrain your tongue from detraction, for an obscure speech shall not go for nought: and the mouth that belies, kills the soul. Seek not death in the error of your life, neither achieve ye destruction by the works of your hands. For Wisdom made not death, neither has she pleasure in the destruction of the living. For she created all things that they might be: and she made the nations of the earth for health: and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor kingdom of perdition upon the earth. For justice is perpetual and immortal. But the wicked with works and words have called it to them: and esteeming it a friend have fallen away, and have made a covenant with it: because they are worthy to be of the part thereof.

Sorry, I can’t say it better than Amy
The final countdown | by: Michel Ouellette JMD

“If You Want to Improve, Stop Defending and Start Listening”

To grow and improve is a desire that most all of us share. Yet, in order to grow and improve we must first be willing to acknowledge our areas of weakness; we must accept who we are. Stop defending and start listening; feedback is the quickest way to learn about our weaknesses. Knowing our weaknesses is the most important step in overcoming them.

When a person’s views, ideas, or behaviors are threatened, any suggestion that conflicts with their idea or behavior can send a person into defensive mode and they are unable to take in much new information as they become solely focused on defending their position. They will deny, make excuses, challenge, rationalize, explain, justify, blame, avoid, withdraw, or go on the attack. To a person on the defense, any new knowledge feels threatening and they are unable to see any side but their own.

Given that our desire is to grow and improve, it is imperative to take steps to avoid this type of response. The most important element in avoiding it is to listen. Our ability to form healthy relationships with others is a direct result of our ability to listen well. Sometimes when hearing feedback, we must force ourselves to take a deep breath, or, if necessary, ask to be excused for a moment so you might step away and regain our composure. Then we can return with a clear head, ready to actively listen. 

Be careful not to expect everyone to see things exactly the same way you do. One of the best things about diversity of thought is that it helps us to view things from different perspectives, so welcome the opportunity to expand your horizons. If, while receiving feedback, you are feeling attacked, feel comfortable to express you are feeling that way in a calm and respectful tone. Look for areas you can agree with them.

If you truly can’t find any points to agree with then ask for specific examples in a way to show that you have a genuine desire to better understand their point of view. Be quick to apologize when you should. Stay on topic. Don’t use the conversation as a way to start bringing up your own grievances that are unrelated to the current discussion.

After hearing the other person out with an open mind, if you are still struggling with their point of view, simply thank them for sharing their views with you and let them know that you genuinely want to take time to ponder what they have said, stating that you will come back to them after you have given it more thought.

When someone is willing to take the time to give you constructive feedback, listen. Truly confident people are able to listen respectfully to other perspectives, then to genuinely consider and evaluate if there is truth in what others are saying. They are able to do it without the feeling that other perspectives are in any way diminishing their own.

This is today’s way and the way of tomorrow: if you want to improve your situation, to improve yourself, stop defending and start listening.

no-excuses


Always so many excuses
The final countdown | by: Michel Ouellette JMD

Change is not only difficult; it is often really scary.

There is always a natural inclination to want to delay beginning for as long as possible. No one wants to fail or look silly and the easiest way to avoid failure or to look silly is to never try or start anything, chiefly anything new.

All the excuses are good: no money; no approval and more than often, the universal excuse, life is getting in the way; sorry, no time. Because of all these excuses or whatever, one will decide that it is better to wait, to delay the project, to postpone it to tomorrow. All these reasons and excuses, I truly believe that you truly believe that they are very much valid. But quite frankly, I don’t think they matter. What I really think is that you are bullshitting both of us, yourself and myself.

Either you want to make it or you don’t.

If you really want to make it, if you really want to reinvent yourself, if you really want to empower yourself, if you really want to start something new, if you really want to create this better future for yourself, for your family, for the people you care about, you will. Nothing will stop you, nothing will frighten you, and nothing will scare you away.

When you fall off out the boat into the ocean, what do you say: “Oh my God! This is so cold, this is so scary, this is so difficult, my mother told me; I think I shall wait for tomorrow, for a better day to start doing it”?

I am telling you my friends, start swimming now; Tomorrow Starts Today.
