These Are Tracy Anderson’s All-Time Best Ab-Sculpting Moves

The truth: The belly is a bad place to pack on pounds. That’s because excess visceral fat—found deep within the abdomen—increases major health risks (heart disease, type 2 diabetes, even dementia). One study revealed that normal-weight women with bigger bellies had a 48 percent higher risk of premature death than their slim-stomach counterparts. Luckily, you can take control of that gut. "Cutting portion sizes, reducing saturated fats, and exercising more will all help," says Roshini Rajapaksa, MD, associate professor of medicine at NYU School of Medicine. Adds Cynthia Sass, RD, "Foods rich in monounsaturated fats, such as avocados, extra-virgin olive oil, and nuts, have been shown to help ward off belly fat, as have beans, lentils, and peas." Performing ab-centric moves is also key, says star trainer Tracy Anderson. But you’ve got to hit the muscles from every angle. "It’s not just about the front of the abs, the rectus ...

UK To Crack Down And Ban All Ads Containing Gender Stereotypes

Sometimes it’s easy to ignore things we wish were different in society by telling ourselves, Well, that’s just the way things are. We often don’t question why things are a certain way or realize that we are capable of changing them, but just because things are done one way, or have been done that way for a long time, does not mean that they will always have to be done that way or that it’s the correct way, for that matter. Change is possible; we just have to believe that it is, and do what we can to bring about that change. One great example of this is Britain’s recent ban on gender stereotypic advertisements. Whenever I’ve seen such advertisements in the past, I have often thought to myself, Of course it’s a woman doing the laundry or Yep, there is a man getting his pilot’s license, or something to that degree. But society created ...

Study Reveals Big Pharma Paid Doctors Millions of Dollars To Push Opioids

It’s no secret that there’s an opium epidemic plaguing North America, and it’s been a growing issue for decades. Many people often picture drug dealers as these scary individuals selling pills on streets, when in reality, the drug pushers responsible for the abuse of opioids, opium, and heroin are largely the U.S. government and doctors. That’s right: The U.S. government and physicians are deeply connected to the opium trade. You have physicians heavily pushing and marketing opioids, and then you have the U.S. government governing the opium trade. A recently published study in the American Journal of Public Health actually proved just how deep this problem runs in regards to the doctor-opioid relationship, proving that opioids represent a lucrative business for both physicians and Big Pharma. Here’s How Much Doctors Were Paid to Push Opioids It’s no secret that Big Pharma is a money-making machine. Many even suggest that they design drugs with negative side effects so you remain ...

A Saint-Malo, ni logo ni subvention au festival de reggae

Un festival sans sponsor, sans subvention et sans bénévole. Un festival totalement indépendant sur le plan économique, n’ayant de compte à rendre à personne, sauf aux spectateurs qui achètent leur billet. A rebrousse-poil du modèle dominant, ce concept existe. Il s’appelle No Logo et est peut-être appelé à prospérer dans un contexte où les sources financières en faveur du spectacle vivant, privées et publiques, ont tendance à se tarir.Consacrée au reggae et aux musiques du monde, la cinquième édition de ce festival à la différence revendiquée s’est tenue à Fraisans (Jura), sur le site d’une ancienne forge industrielle, du 11 au 13 août. Sa déclinaison bretonne – baptisée No Logo BZH – s’est déroulée en partie simultanément, les 13 et 14 août, au Fort de Saint-Père, à quelques kilomètres de Saint-Malo (Ille-et-Vilaine). Un lieu que les amateurs de rock et de musique actuelle connaissent bien pour accueillir la Route du Rock, un ...

The Data’s In: How Much Longer You’ll Live If You Stop Eating Red Meat

There is no doubt about it: vegetarianism and veganism are on the rise as more and more people are becoming aware of the potential impacts of meat and animal product consumption and the effect it has on our health, spirituality, conscience, and the environment. As more awareness is raised, more people are making an effort to either ditch or drastically cut back on their consumption — and for good reason. Those who have opted for this lifestyle have varying reasons, but the most common are the environmental impacts of animal agriculture, inhumane treatment of animals on factory farms, and the growing health concerns over many animal products. How Bad Is Meat Consumption On Our Health? More and more studies are emerging specifically on the potential impact that a diet consisting largely around meat and animal products has on our health. Last year the World Health Organization declared that processed meats ...

Mercury Retrograde Of Summer 2017: Recalibrating For New Beginnings

Mercury has just begun its latest edition of its retrograde process. It started on August 12th and will last until September 5th. In the weeks and especially days leading up to it, we start to notice its effects as Mercury slows down and comes to a stop before moving the other way. Mercury retrograde is famous for the disruptive, delaying, and problematic effects it often has on communication technology, transactions, motor vehicles, anything with moving parts, and commuting in general. We could experience some challenges, misunderstandings, and errors around our communications, numbers/details, and more changes and cancellations in our schedules. We may also feel more challenged when we are doing analytical work without using our internal guidance. Although there is a higher probability of experiencing more of these problems during this time, they won’t necessarily apply to every situation. Some people may not notice these energies as much, depending on what types of things they ...

L’écrasante passion d’André S. Labarthe

A quatre pattes sous son bureau, le réalisateur et critique de cinéma André S. Labarthe cherche son chat dans sa maison de campagne des Deux-Sèvres. Un matou qu’il baptisa « le chat de Barcelone » lorsqu’il le trouva écrasé dans les faubourgs de la ville espagnole en 1982. « Des centaines de voitures avaient dû lui rouler dessus, car il était tout fin comme le recto verso d’une photographie, raconte-t-il. D’un côté, on voyait ses os, de l’autre son pelage. Je crois qu’il a été conscient de ses derniers instants parce qu’il tourne la tête. Un instant-tanné. »Labarthe poursuit ses recherches. En ouvrant au hasard quelques boîtes, il tombe sur des canettes écrasées. « Je les récupère car elles ne sont bonnes qu’à ça, dit-il. C’est aussi beau qu’un tableau. Il n’y a rien qui se métamorphose plus que l’écrasement. » Aujourd’hui, il en compte plus de deux mille. Forme inattendue A côté, un verre brisé. « Voilà un ...

The 10 Most Popular Prescription Drugs & Their Potential Side Effects

Modern medicine really loves to implement the band-aid effect; doctors often just prescribe drugs to mitigate the systems of a health problem rather than focusing on curing the underlying issue. People with high cholesterol are prescribed Statins rather than looking at their diets, anxiety sufferers are handed pills rather than delving into why they have anxiety in the first place, and the list goes on and on. Though I see this system as being flawed, if you don’t see any holes within it, I ask you: Do you actually know what the potential side effects of these drugs are? Many people are completely unaware of the potential hazardous effects of numerous prescription drugs because their doctors don’t tell them and they don’t think to ask. I know I experienced this before I started questioning my doctors and the medical industry. It’s completely understandable; these are the people we’re expected to trust with our ...

Is The Mainstream Igniting Pedophilia With ‘Victoria Secret’-Style Lingerie Show Featuring 5yo Girls?

It’s no secret, pedophilia has been a topic of conversation in a big way over the last year. With the rise of investigations into elite pedophile rings, including the popularization of PizzaGate, many have begun to ask questions about how big of a problem this is in politics, government and hollywood. In this new show that took place in China, we see 5 year old girls dressed in lingerie walking down the runway, looking quite uncomfortable. I’m not about to say putting a girl in lingerie at a fashion show is the same as pedophilia, but we need to ask why we are sexualizing young girls like this. It becomes a very fine line between acts like this and pushing the envelope to further see children as sex symbols. FreeThoughtProject reports: The latest movement within media and Hollywood pop culture seems to be an agenda to normalize pedophilia and the sexualization of ...

Les frères Morvan, légendes vivantes et mythe breton

Au Festival du chant de marin, qui se déroule une année sur deux à Paimpol (Côtes-d’Armor), on peut voir et entendre beaucoup de groupes et de chorales – une cinquantaine – spécialisés dans les rengaines portuaires et autres chansons à hisser les voiles. Il y a aussi des têtes d’affiche de la musique traditionnelle et de la world music : Kassav’, Alan Stivell, Malicorne, Tinariwen et Calypso Rose cette année. Il y a enfin les frères Morvan. Les inoxydables frères Morvan.A chaque édition du festival, ceux-ci sont systématiquement programmés sur la scène consacrée au fest-noz. Il en a toujours été et il en sera toujours ainsi tant qu’Henri Morvan, 85 ans, et son cadet de trois ans, Yvon, continueront à interpréter le kan ha diskan, cette technique de chant à danser a cappella dont la caractéristique, appelée tuilage, consiste à prolonger une phrase musicale d’un chanteur à l’autre, à la ...

New study: Vaccine Manufacturers & FDA Regulators Caught Hiding Risks of HPV Vaccines

New Documentary: Watch: The Truth about vaccines – bit.ly/2uKN1FO A new study published in Clinical Rheumatology exposes how vaccine manufacturers used phony placebos in clinical trials to conceal a wide range of devastating risks associated with HPV vaccines. Instead of using genuine inert placebos and comparing health impacts over a number of years, as is required for most new drug approvals, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline spiked their placebos with a neurotoxic aluminum adjuvant and cut observation periods to a matter of months. Researchers from Mexico’s National Institute of Cardiology pored over 28 studies published through January 2017—16 randomized trials and 12 post-marketing case series—pertaining to the three human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines currently on the market globally. In their July 2017 peer-reviewed report, the authors, Manuel Martínez-Lavin and Luis Amezcua-Guerra, uncovered evidence of numerous adverse events, including life-threatening injuries, permanent disabilities, hospitalizations and deaths, reported after vaccination with GlaxoSmithKline’s bivalent Cervarix vaccine and Merck’s quadrivalent or nine-valent ...

Pay Attention: We’re Heavily Empowering One Industry To Destroy The Environment

The government, mainstream media, and multiple environmental organizations are constantly driving our attention toward oil and gas, transportation, and many other industries that contribute to environmental degradation and destruction. How often do you hear that animal agriculture is the leading force behind all of this? The environmental destruction that occurs as a result of animal agriculture is alarming, yet it tends to be swept under the rug. Environmental organizations often refuse to address this issue because it affects so many people and our understanding of how we live and thrive. Meat is a staple found on the tables in most houses, and it’s a huge money-maker (with a value of $1.4 trillion, to be exact), so many organizations choose to avoid the topic altogether. We can no longer look the other way when it comes to the destruction of the environment. The Earth is our home, without which we have nowhere to ...

TV : Salzbourg, de « Papy Marmotte » à Verdi

La journée spéciale que dédie Arte à la ville natale de Mozart est habilement mitonnée : en hors-d’œuvre ou trou normand, quelques émissions inédites ponctuent un menu pour beaucoup constitué de restes du placard à rediffusions de la chaîne franco-allemande. Le clou de la journée étant la captation, en léger différé, de l’opéra Aïda, de Giuseppe Verdi, avec la soprano Anna Netrebko et le chef Riccardo Muti à la tête de l’Orchestre philharmonique de Vienne, formation en résidence du Festival de Salzbourg. Créée en 1920 par le metteur en scène Max Reinhardt et le dramaturge Hugo von Hofmannsthal, cette manifestation théâtrale et musicale est – au moins en ce qui concerne la musique – la plus ­cotée au monde, fréquentée par la jet-set mélomane et lyricophile au portefeuille garni. (Les billets pour les concerts étant ­cependant plus abordables.) Le Festival de Salzbourg a vécu des périodes diversement riches, selon qui était à ...

If Human Thought Can Do This To Water, Just Imagine What It Can Do To Us

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” — Nikola Tesla This is exactly what’s happening right now, and it’s making its presence felt in all levels of academia. But we still have a lot way to go. Fortunately, a group of internationally recognized scientists have come together to stress the importance of what is still commonly overlooked in the mainstream scientific community: the fact that matter (protons, electrons, photons, anything that has a mass) is not the only reality. We wish to understand the nature of our reality, but if we only examine physical systems and ignore all the rest — things like consciousness, and the way it interacts with matter — we’ll never be able to. A few years ago, these scientists held an International Summit on Post-Materialist Science, and created a manifesto to explain ...

15 Life Altering Gems From The New Alan Watts’ Book: ‘Out of Your Mind’

As one of the most celebrated orators of modern history, Alan Watts (1915-1973) had a knack for getting to the heart of life’s biggest questions. Released in March 2017, his newest book — Out of Your Mind: Tricksters, Interdependence, and the Cosmic Game of Hide and Seek  — is no exception. Based on the best-selling Out of Your Mind audio series, this captivating book may be the most potent Watts publication in the last 45 years. (I truly mean that, as I’ve read them all.) Having enjoyed the book twice, I selected 15 linguistic gems that reflect the depth, clarity, and power of Watts’ eloquent words on a range of topics. That was no easy feat because, like all of Watts’ works, insightful treasures abound — page, after page, after page. Perhaps the quotes below will enliven you, like they have me and so many others, or inspire you to ...

Les studios de cinéma font le pari du streaming en solitaire

Les mauvaises nouvelles déferlent en cascade cette semaine sur Netflix. Disney a officiellement annoncé, mardi 8 août, qu’il ne renouvellerait pas, fin 2018, son partenariat avec la plate-forme de streaming. Exit donc Pirates des Caraïbes, Le Monde de Dory ou autre Vaiana, la légende du bout du monde que Disney commercialisera dès 2019 sur sa propre plate-forme concurrente de cinéma. Cette contagieuse envie de rupture s’est propagée à la vitesse de l’éclair puisque James Murdoch, le directeur général adjoint du groupe de médias 21st Century Fox, s’est, lui aussi, déclaré mercredi « très ouvert » à l’idée de lancer son propre service de streaming. Sans en dire davantage aux analystes, il a confirmé que la Fox allait aussi retirer des films et d’autres contenus de Netflix.Ces deux annonces préfigurent-elles un chamboulement en profondeur de l’audiovisuel et du cinéma outre-Atlantique ? Le streaming semble désormais considéré comme l’alpha et l’oméga de la croissance par les ...

Russia’s Putin & Medvedev Both Mention “The Men In Black.” Who Are These “People”?

If you told somebody 10 years ago that there existed some sort of secret group or “secret government” pulling the strings behind the scenes of government policy, international law, various global rules/regulations, and more, they would have called you a “conspiracy theorist.” Today things have changed, largely as a result of information leaked by Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and various other whistleblowers and activists in recent years. All of this exists in what’s become known as the “black budget world” — a world so secretive that its operations, known as Special Access Programs, or Unacknowledged Special Access, remain hidden from Congress and are exempt from reporting to Congress. You can read more about the black budget in an article we published on the subject here. The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in ...
