The short answer is to buy commodities. Imagine that you lived on a farm and you had on site everything you needed to subsist; meat, wool, wood, water, fruits, and vegetables. Then you do not need money, and you’re fully independent. The first $100 that was printed was to get someone “in debt” by this amount so that person would buy a commodity (gas, flour, etc) The amount is paid against labor performed, labor is the worker’s capital, his/her input. Commodities are traded in USD. Today, if we all drove solar-powered cars, then we could afford to work a few hours less per week (cost of gasoline saved). You could enjoy life better with your family. But banks and the commodity oligarchs are not interested in such efficient systems. They want you to get more in debt, promoting more commodity derivatives that you may not even need. Before you purchase anything, ask yourself if you need it, and find ways to be self-sufficient (your small farm/garden, bicycle riding when possible, etc) in attempt to emancipate yourself from commodity slavery. If you inspect a $1.00 bill, it reads an instrument of “debt”, not an instrument of credit. In theory, you need less money, not more, to be free.
Sorbitol in Hookah Tobacco
This is always a “hot” topic. Hookah Tobacco consists of about 20% tobacco, and the rest is Glycerin (vegetable product), artificial flavors (esters, etc.), and sweetners (sugars, invert sugar, and/or sorbitol) which oftentimes are loosely referred to as honey or sweet base molasses. It hardly ever contains natural flavors.
Here I will only discuss “Sorbitol”, which is a sweetner you most commonly find in your toothpaste along with Xylitol. Your body naturally makes sorbitol when breaking down glucose. When you smoke hookah, sorbitol will be completely burnt at around 300 degrees C (coal burning temperature.) This is a very high temperature. The result is formaldehyde and acetaldehyde, some known carcinogens to humans. These products materialize thru the hydrogenation of CO. If your eyes become red or itchy while smoking, this maybe the result of 2 additional by-products; acrolein, and furfural.
The hookah Tobacco ingredients look innocent on the surface, but once you burn them at 300 deg C, the ugly output shows up.
Jordan is one of the world’s top producers of hookah tobacco. This makes it a primary exporter of cancer to humans smoking these productks. This unfortunately helps indirectly solve part of the global over-population problem.
On Sales Leverage
Many companies and shops are open for business everyday and do not have a leverage product in their product mix. For example, a shop may have 10 products yielding 10% each. Say you’re selling scarves at $5 each, yielding a net profit of $2; in a day, you will need to sell 50 pieces to make $100 in profit (maybe you even have to deal with 50 customers!) Instead, you could identify 1 product yielding $50 in profit per transaction (like a suit or leather jacket), so in a day, you need to sell 2 products to lock in $100 in profit. Compare this to dealing with 30 to 50 customers selling low leverage products. Many companies struggle because they do not have leverage products, or if they do have them, they fail to promote them well. Look around at your business or shop, identify those high value leverage products (high profit density items) and market them well. Happy Selling!
On Death and Energy
Death is not the end if you think of yourself as some form of energy. There will be a transformation. Death is the end if you think of mass alone. E=mc2. The only way to transcend and reach light years (distance) quickly is to travel at the speed of light, at which time you will have been converted to E (100% Energy). No mass! Get it?
Is Killing 99.9% of Bacteria and Germs False Advertising?
Is Killing 99.9% of Bacteria and Germs False Advertising? The short answer is yes, because it is made as a blanket statement. The advertiser intentionally drops the amount of time (dynamic delay) needed to achieve the objective of killing 99.9%, for example they never say “instantly kills 99.9%” or “kills 99.9% in 10 minutes”, etc. For viruses and some germs, even the use of the word “kill” is misleading, because they do not die, they encapsulate themselves until better conditions exist again, then they are back to regular life. It takes 10 to 15 minutes for these chemicals to work, but then after you touch a door handle, you have to clean it again. This is why at hospitals, you have a full-time employee doing just that. There’s a better way, use copper-based door handles, it is naturally anti-bacterial due to its molecular structure. This is why, with trial-and-error and many casualties, people settled hundreds of years ago on using pots made from copper. Now, copper poisoning is a totally different discussion.
ON JINN. OR JINN AND PHYSICS.
Some 18 months ago, Movie Director Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad invited me for an interview to provide a scientific opinion about the existence of Jinn (a creature made from Fire and is mentioned in the 3 holy books.) Ajmal released the movie Jinn on 4/4/14, but it was far from successful. What follows is my rant about Jinn from an Electromagnetics standpoint.
From the physics standpoint, there are 2 main issues regarding Jinn:
1. The eye as the tool for perceiving images. The images can be of physical or virtual objects. The eye has frequency limitations. Example, the bulb frequency at 60 Hz, the light actually blinks 60 times per second, but we do not see it blink, as our eye cannot resolve that frequency. So our understanding of the world will always be limited to what the eye can see. What it cannot see remains an unknown unkown.
2. Electromagnetic Specturm. When it comes to electromagnetics, we talk about a spectrum, yet we continue to talk about angels, humans, and Jinn. Perhaps there are other creatures for each level in the known electromagnetic spectrurm. So there maybe a continuum, not just discrete points.
Just below the visible spectrum that we can see, you can find infrared waves, and this is where Jinn belong to. On the other end, above the visible spectrurm, there is ultra-violet, above the clouds where angels belong. This is why angels are depicted as above the clouds light-weight short wavelength creatures. The point is that both angels and jinn operate outside the visible spectrum of the human eye. To see jinn, first you have to feel cold (consistent with reports) if you are near it, because it has to suck energy out of its surroundings to create that dense infrared hologram or ghost. That temperature gradient, will make the person seeing the ghost feel cold. Infrared waves are known to penetrate deeper into earth, thus the notion that Jinn live underground.
I think we are disturbing the lives of Jinn and other creatures today with our use of low frequency systems such as radars, microwave, and radio waves. They may be angry at us.
The word Jinn is also related to Jinna which in Arabic means madness or craze. This means that the devil, himself a Jinn, or other jinns can interfere with the human’s low frequency brain waves, and cause a behavioral change, on the extreme driving the person to insanity.
Maybe people in the past knew or saw of Jinn more than we did due to better spiritual connections, Jinn and the devil at the infrared level are almost always associated with the color red, which is the lowest frequency in the visible spectrum (the color of blood, longest wavelength, our eyes will see it quickly, it is a primitive instinct), vs. the blue color (high frequency, short wavelength) associated with angels and the blue skies. I can speculate easily that if a Jinn would show up here now, it would have a red color tone based on the energy needed to generate its ghost around the infrared frequency and going into a red color wavelength.
Spotlight Position: An Important Lesson in Sales
There’s a visual you always need to remember when you sell a product. It is a spotlight. The spotlight should be focused on the prospect (the buyer), and not on you the seller. If you hear yourself saying: we have the best products, we outsell the competition, we, we, we.. then you should know you’re having the spotlight on you the seller. This is annoying to the buyer, the buyer wants the spotlight on her, ask her the questions to uncover her needs, then offer your solutions. Many sellers who receive solution-selling training continue to waste a lot of time leaving the spotlight on the seller. Make your buyer feel like a queen, and the best advice to the seller is to check your ego at the door as you walk into your meeting.
Surgeons vs. Plumbers
When you work for someone else, be it another person or some corporate entity, you’re offering your labor to that entity to create capital for that entity. Then, a very “small” portion of the capital is paid back later as wages – as compensation for work performed. It makes most sense that you do not transfer out your labor, and keep it invested in yourself, your own corporate entity, because the capital you will create with your own labor, you will keep a larger % of. Why settle for a smaller % from an outside entity? Your work, your labor, it is all you have, it is your life, never sell it cheap. Start your own business today. The only difference between a worker, and a business owner is this mindset.
