6 Things to Understand about Human Brain

I was reading a good Book on a beautiful Cleveland morning. The author of Riveted explains how you can make your message go viral (it takes real skill, or you will be ignored and forgotten).
Jim Davies says you have to understand 6 things about the human brain to win friends and influence people:
1. We are interested in stories about humans…
2. We pay particular attention to things we hope or fear are true…
3. We delight in finding patterns…
4. We are attracted to incongruity, apparent contradictions, novelty, and puzzles…
5. The nature of our bodies—the nature of our eyes and other sense organs, affects what kinds of things draw us…
6. We have certain psychological traits, many of which are evolved, that make us like and dislike, believe and disbelieve…
So when you speak, write, and interact with other people, make sure you utilize all 6 of these to compel, fascinate, and persuade everyone you meet.

Oil Stocks Jump

Oil Stocks Jump on Promised Production Freeze
By Anthony Jerdine April 13, 2016
Shares of offshore driller SeaDrill Limited (SDRL) skyrocketed Tuesday, climbing almost 30% to a high of $3.99, fueled by a 4.5% rise in oil prices. This continues the tug-of-war between the bulls and bears the market has witnessed over the past couple of weeks.
Another Case of “Too Fast, Too Soon?”
On Tuesday the bulls sent oil prices higher on reports that Saudi Arabia and Russia have agreed to a production freeze ahead of the producers meeting in Doha, Qatar on Sunday. This was further driven by a Reuters report suggesting the government expects the U.S. crude output to decline by 560,000 barrels per day in 2017 to 8.04 million barrels per day.
“People are now realizing that this OPEC meeting could be a historic turning point for the market,” Phil Flynn, an analyst at Price Futures Group, told Reuters. “Now, with U.S. production cuts, our sense is that we’re entering a new cycle upwards.”
SDRL shares closed Tuesday at $3.83, rising 24.35%. The company makes money from drilling contracts, supplying drilling services for oil and gas wells. And as oil prices rise, it raises optimism about the company’s potential revenue in the quarters ahead. Not to mention, rising oil improves the prospects for more favorable drilling contracts. But is this another case of “too fast, too soon?”
As it now stands, U.S. oil prices are now at their 2016 highs and well above $40 per barrel – an important near-term psychological benchmark. On Tuesday, Crude oil (West Texas Intermediate) closed at $42.17 per barrel, while Brent crude closed up $1.86, or 4.3% at $44.69, according to But as we’ve seen in recent weeks, oil can take a sudden negative turn.
Investors should remain vigilant, if not a bit skeptical, that a meeting between members of OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) Sunday will result in a production freeze.
“The market appears to be taking a lot of support from positive statements. But, this isn’t the first time the Russians have come out and made remarks related to a production freeze being imminent,” said Gene McGillian, a senior analyst at Tradition Energy, according to CNBC.
Despite Tuesday’s massive rise in the share price, SDRL stock has suffered 64% declines over the past twelve months, compared to a 2% decline in the S&P 500 (SPX) index during that same span. Is now the best time to take some profits from SDRL shares? The stock has a consensus sell rating and an average analyst 12-month price target of $1.73, implying a decline of 55% from Tuesday’s close.

Law of Attraction

The Law Of Attraction is a modern spin on ancient philosophies. Through conceptualization and effort we can draw more positive elements and opportunities to us. If we imagine an opportunity or aspect of reality and focus on it, working towards that goal, we can manifest our desires and wishes.
It’s a simple concept that a lot of people complicate. Below is a checklist of common occurrences that happen as we start to strengthen and broaden our communication with the universe or higher power.
You Always Feel Ready For Change
You aren’t afraid to face your fears and challenges head on, giving everything you’ve got to life. You accept the things you can’t change and are grateful for what you can change. Change is a necessary and unstoppable part of life. By welcoming constantly in flux aspects of life, we ensure that we are in a position to best take advantage of our shifting horizons.
Your Attention Is Kept On The Present Moment
The present moment is the only time frame that we have power over. The past is irreversible and subject to interpretation depending on why we are looking backwards. The future is completely uncertain and full of assumptions and expectations. The best way to manifest a better tomorrow is to keep our present moment in line with our intentions.
You Naturally Turn The Negative Into Positive
You understand that you won’t be successful at everything you do all the time. Besides our own shortcomings sometimes negative aspects pile up at our feet, seeming to limit our options. You use the negative in your life to serve your best interests. Treat negativity like you would fertilizer or manure, use it to strengthen and grow other formations within you. Learn from your mistakes and don’t let them haunt you.
You Feel Happy And Content
Your abilities give you a sense of Zen, regardless of what’s going on in your life. You are confident in your ability to roll with the punches and maximize your harvest of good things in your life. Even when everything seems counter intuitive and wrong you understand these feelings will pass.
Good Things Keep Happening To You
Despite any hiccups or shortcomings, you always seem to come out on top. This is due to the fact that you’re flexible mentality and forward moving momentum help you adapt and maximize any possible benefits. Also, you have learned to be appreciative for what you have, so this celebration attracts more benefits to you.

Posted by Anthony Jerdine| April 5, 2016 Wheatgrass Turn Gray Hair
Back to Its Natural Color?

Gray hair: The ultimate telltale sign of aging. Approximately half of all 50-year-olds are at least 50% gray. Try as you may to postpone the inevitable with expensive, foul-smelling and messy dyes, the battle against gray is predictable… gray is pretty much the undefeated champion. Or is it?
Regular consumption of the young grass of a common wheat plant can recolor those grays so that you can enjoy your lush, natural color well into your senior years. And it doesn’t just stop at the gray. This young cereal grass slows down the entire aging process by rejuvenating your cells, detoxifying your body, fighting tumors and tightening loose and sagging skin.
Gray Isn’t Just a Sign of Age
The age-old healing system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) links hair pigmentation to the quality of your blood and the strength of your kidneys. According to TCM, gray doesn’t mean old as much as it points to weak kidneys and blood.
Made up of 70% chlorophyll, wheatgrass, from the wheat plant triticum aestivum, restores the health of your kidneys and blood.
Chlorophyll helps to strengthen, build and oxygenate the blood. It is remarkably similar to hemoglobin, a compound that carries oxygen to the blood. Once consumed, chlorophyll is transformed into blood. It then transports nutrients, such as oxygen, to your cells, tissues and organs, rejuvenating, protecting and strengthening.
Renowned nutritionist, Dr. Bernard Jenson, discovered that wheatgrass and other green juices high in chlorophyll are nature’s best blood builders. In his book Health Magic Through Chlorophyll From Living Plant Life, he cites several cases in which he was able to boost red blood cell count in a matter of days simply by having patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath. Consuming wheatgrass and other green juices regularly has been proven to boost red blood cell count even more rapidly.
Beyond Beautification and into Total Body Health
Wheatgrass is made up of an impressive array of nutrients that reinforce and rejuvenate everything from our cells and tissues to our organs and bodily systems. In addition to its 70% chlorophyll makeup, wheatgrass contains 17 essential amino acids, 90 minerals, 13 vitamins and 80 enzymes. Prominent research scientist Dr. Earp-Thomas says that,”15 pounds of wheatgrass is the equivalent of 350 pounds of carrots, lettuce, celery and so forth.”
Wheatgrass delivers an impenetrable line of defense against disease. An all-natural and powerful detoxifier, wheatgrass protects the liver and purifies the blood by neutralizing toxic substances such as cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury and polyvinyl chloride.
Detoxifying is the first step. From there, wheatgrass takes the offensive as a proven anti-cancer agent that stops tumors in their tracks.
Fact: Cancer cells cannot develop in oxygen rich environments!
Wheatgrass is an abundant source of liquid oxygen. Boosting the production of red blood cells and increasing oxygen in the blood helps fight cancer cells because cancer cannot survive in such alkaline rich environments.
A recent study published in the journal Mutation Research pitted chlorophyll against beta-carotene and vitamins A, C and E. Chlorophyll had a greater anti-cancer effect than all the other nutrients. Wheatgrass truly is total body nutrition in one gulp!
Why Has This Proven Anti-Aging Cure Been Hushed Up?
Practically every week, new alternative health breakthroughs are discovered. Most of these anti-aging and longevity cures are already scientifically proven to heal a wide variety of diseases… eliminate pain… slow down or reverse the aging process… and enhance total body wellness. Yet, these powerful health alternatives—most of which are inexpensive or free—are unknown to most people because mainstream media rarely reports them. To the contrary, these powerful health solutions are systematically suppressed and even banned.
The reason for this is simple: these inexpensive natural treatments threaten the profits of mainstream medicine and the pharmaceutical industry. Imagine what would happen to the earnings of Big Pharma and the medical industry if people had the information they needed to heal themselves of virtually any disease or health problem? Everyone would be able to optimize his or her own health and well-being… and no one would ever need medical treatment again—except for emergencies and natural disasters.

You might ask, what does sex transmutation have to do with transmitting? To break that down we must start by talking about celibacy.  I have to cover the art of using celibacy as a tool for the overall improvement of mankind because there are more than enough articles, magazines and videos promoting sex that are currently circulating the air and ocular waves.  Above all things there has to be balance and so this article is an attempt to share information that could potentially provide balance as it relates to the health and wellness of your spirit and physical body.  We already know how to get it in!!
During my professional basketball career I had a coach who was like a father to me named Marc Fulcher aka “Black Man” and “Folks” (RIP Folks).   Marc was from the streets of Oakland.   He passed a few years ago but he left me many life principles of which I still apply today.  One of the things that he always stressed to me was that if I decided to go around sleeping with multiple women that I would lose my energy each time I ejaculated.  He knew which players were doing what based on their energy levels during the games.  It was actually quite comical to see guys get break away layups for a dunk and watch their legs buckle while trying to jump!  More importantly as men we would “lose our seed and apart of ourselves each time.”  Males, you ever noticed how you feel weaker after ejaculating?
I can re-call a time while playing in the Dominican Republic and the woman that I was seeing (at the time) came from La Vega (another part of the Dominican Republic) to visit me while I was in the finals of the playoffs.  My team’s first response was to inform me not to have sex with my girl the day before or of any games.  Needless to say I didn’t listen.  Consequently, during the following game, ALL of my shots were SHORT and NONE of them went in.  I was scored on several times which was unusual because I am generally the best defensive player on the court!  By the results team officials and fans knew what the case of the pedestrian performance was!  In the DR everybody knows your business damn near before you do!!!
Here is the major issue with most of us.  Many have taken the act of sex and made it into a recreation when it was actually intended for pro-creation, exercise and enjoyment, the downloading of information, bonding and much more.   Bliss and enjoyment for two people who are married, in an intimate relationship or have a deep understanding of each other and want the experience.  I don’t re-call the biblical scripture where it speaks of man spilling his seed but there is much ancient wisdom on this topic.  For men when you engage in many sex acts you are putting a great deal of pressure on the prostate.  The prostate has to open and close during the ejaculation process as well as be a chief vehicle in the semen formulation process.  I don’t have any studies but what I often wonder is, how many men have contracted prostate problems or prostate cancer because they have either masturbated too much or had too much sex?  I believe the numbers are high.
When you are trying to achieve a certain level in life you must learn to become celibate and use this energy on your goal.  The great Napoleon Hill made a statement that makes a great deal of sense.  Hill stated (and I’m paraphrasing) that “Generally speaking, people (especially men) don’t begin to advance in their career until their mid-forties.  It’s only because they have left that sexual energy behind or it has reached calmer levels that allow them to concentrate and get other things done in life. That energy has been put into their job or business now.  This is called sexual transmutation.
As it stands there are many people who engage in low vibrational sex.  There is no judgement here because most nearly all of us have done it at some point in life.  Low vibrational sex is just casual sex with people you may not really know or someone that you have no intentions on being with or around.  We basically serve our mundane desires of what we feel is “meeting our needs.”  This is about pure satisfaction.  I’m not saying that it can’t be done if two people are on the same wave length and are both agreeing to such a thing.  The problem is that one of the two people will eventually want more or could be carrying some bad vibes with them along with sexually transmitted dis-eases.  When you engage in low vibrational sex you have no way of knowing how many people this person has been with.   They might tell you but there is no real way to be sure.  If we are looking at this metaphysically and spiritually then we will understand that you will take on the energy and personality of the individual that you decided to lay with.
The most interesting part about this is that not only will you be taking on your sex partner’s energy but you will also take on the energy of the people that they have been with.  You ever been physically involved with someone and you begin to act different and you don’t even realize why you are behaving differently? It’s because you have taken on other personalities. What if that man or woman was with a killer or child molester?  Now you’ve taken on all of their energy. Energy never dissipates it just changes from one form to the other. There are so many things that can happen to you just because you are not willing to use discretion and focus on what you need to focus on.
Am I saying stop having sex?  Hell no!  We all love it.  What I’m proposing is that if you are plagued with problems (health or personal) or want some clarity on life, you may want to consider taking a break and abstaining from sexual activity.  The time will be based on you as an individual.  Of course that would depend on if you are married or single.  Let’s be real, whose spouse is going to want to not get some skins for 6 months?  So above all things we have to be logical.  But if you are single the galaxy is the limit. What’s going to happen is your mind will become clear because the sexual energy is going into you and your projects. Meditation and quiet time will prove favorable for your personal development during this period. I remember reading an article about rap group Wutang member Rza.  He shared some information that opened my eyes some years ago.  He revealed that he went celibate for one to two years (don’t quote me on the time frame but it was an extended period of time). The result of his discipline was more energy and a boost in his goal oriented endeavors. The funny thing about being celibate is that you attract more of the opposite sex because they can notice the energy or your aura.
This celibate time is so important so that you can focus all of you energies on personal development and attract everything that you want to yourself.
On the contrary, being too celibate can be detrimental.  Remember the universe likes balance.  If you are at an age where a person would be fairly sexually active and you are celibate for many years then you could potentially face back lash. I know women that have had little to no sex in their lives and the result of this negligence has been the creation of dis-eases and pathologies for themselves. This is due to the extremely high amount of suppressed energy. We have to be realistic about one thing.  It is natural for everyone to want to engage in physical activity from the opposite sex.  Some form of physical touch is needed.  When you suppress this act for so long, eventually things start to find a way to express themselves and manifest into other outbursts within the body. It’s like pressure bursting a pipe.  The pipe can only withstand but so much pressure before it explodes.
Years of suppression can result in swollen prostates in men and several other urinary tract or sexual reproductive hindrances.  In women ailments such as endometriosis, infertility and ovarian cancer are commonplace as a result of “with-holding too long.” This is all because they waited for so long to release the built up stress.  Many times it’s due to religious beliefs, career focus or holding out for the perfect individual that doesn’t exist.  I am not advocating you break your beliefs.  But I am suggesting that you find a way to express your sexuality “within the confines of your belief or faith system.”  So we see here that doing too much can get you in trouble and doing too little can do the same!
Celibacy and sex transmutation is a powerful tool that when practiced correctly can change your life for the better.  Use it for what it’s worth but don’t abuse it!
