In honor of NOT drinking soda: "The song was done as a Coca Cola jingle, "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke" by The Hillside Singers, assembled to sing the jingle when the New Seekers were not able to fit the recording into their schedule. When the commercial was successful, the song was rewritten to "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" and the New Seekers made it a mainstream hit."

Monkey Shrine

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Is ignorance bliss? Trivia fast fact: "The three cute little monkeys either originated in eighth century China and were brought to Japan by a Buddhist monk, or came from a carving on the Nikko Toshogo Shrine to represent the religious principle "If we do not hear, see, or speak evil, we ourselves shall be spared all evil."

Ginger Fights Colds

Monday, October 11, 2010

Cross post from the natural remedies team, more evidence that vegetarian miso soup with ginger is a super food : "I saw this part regarding ginger, and since I love eating unsulfured crystallized ginger lately I was even more excited about using it medicinally:
"Ginger contains nearly a dozen antiviral compounds. Scientists have isolated several chemicals (sesquiterpenes) in ginger that have specific effects against the most common family of cold viruses, the rhinoviruses. Some of these chemicals are remarkably potent in their anti-rhinovirus effects.
Other constituents in ginger, gingerols and shogaols, help relieve cold symptoms because they reduce pain and fever, suppress coughing and have a mild sedative effect that encourages rest. "

    Also did you know that the ginger that you buy in the store that you can plant it and it will grow and when you need some you can just cut a little piece off of it. It will keep growing and not spoil like it does when it is in the fridge.

I guess anger happens around the world. "The journalist, Jarnail Singh, was upset that a Congress party member, Jagdish Tytler, had been cleared of charges filed during the anti Sikh riots of 1984 and subsequently been given a ticket to contest the 2009 General Elections in India. In 2008 an Iraqi reporter flung his shoe at former US President George W Bush to protest against U.S. involvement in Iraq."

New Breed

Saturday, October 09, 2010

It is funny irony, that as America struggles to lose calories, much of the rest of the world struggles to gain them. "In 1944, Borlaug was commissioned as head of the Cooperative Wheat Research and Production Program in Mexico. He developed new breeds of wheat that were disease resistant, could grow deeper into the growing seasons at various altitudes, and could produce more grain per stalk. His methods and breed of wheat doubled production in Mexico, and later India, Pakistan, and much of Asia and Latin America. Borlaug also worked with corn, beans, and cassava. In 1970 Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for helping feed the world. "

    I am thankful for Borlau. Anyone one who helps us to feed the rest of the world deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
