Junk food gives us the blues

FAST food not only makes us fat, it brings us down.

People who have healthier diets are less likely to become anxious and depressed, Deakin University researchers have found.

"Those people eating more junk and processed foods were more likely to be anxious," said Dr Felice Jacka, of Deakin's Barwon Psychiatric Research Unit.

The research, conducted on 5700 middle-aged and older adults from Norway, showed there was a clear link between diet and mental health.

Dr Jacka said healthy diets were those that included vegetables, fruit, wholegrain food, low-fat dairy, fish and non-processed red meat.

Dr Jacka said it was unclear why junk food made people depressed, but it could be linked to immune system functions of proteins in the brain.

It came as another study showed it was probably not the best idea to live around the corner from a fish-and-chip shop.

An American study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine revealed that people who live near fast-food restaurants are more likely to eat these foods.

But it showed that living near grocery stores and supermarkets had no impact on diets.

Governments are too quick to 'pretend' they care about consumer health by for example banning the visual advertising of cigarettes, or by putting labels on cigarettes that they are caner causing, whilst totally overlooking two other industries that are responsible for cancer those being:

  • the junk food industry
  • the alcohol industry

The mass media mislabels the junk food industry as the fast food industry.

$5000 missing from Victoria Police exhibits storage unit

CORRUPT police are suspected of stealing $5000 from the Victoria Police exhibits storage unit.

Ethical Standards Department detectives have been called in to investigate the missing cash.

The $5000 was part of a larger sum of money which was seized by police to be used in evidence at a criminal trial.

Rather than keep large sums of cash on the premises, the normal practice is for police to bank it and get a receipt.

It was when police were banking the seized cash that they realised $5000 of it was missing.

Assistant Commissioner (Crime) Graham Ashton today confirmed the suspected theft of cash from the Logistics and Exhibits Office, which is located at the Crime Department on St Kilda Rd.

Mr Ashton said Victoria Police was doing everything it could to ensure best practice was implemented and this type of incident does not happen again.

"A full and thorough investigation is taking place into how this incident occurred,'' he said.

"The fact that this money is missing and likely stolen is deeply concerning.

"We thought it was important and transparent to advise the community about this issue and the Crime Department is taking proactive measures to ensure this does not happen again.

"Cash handling processes have been reviewed and documented, initial work practices have been evaluated and a number of opportunities have been identified for further improvement.''

The seized cash was lodged as an exhibit in relation to an investigation in November 2010.

ESD in investigating the circumstances surrounding the missing $5000, which is believed to have been stolen between May and June 2011.

A Victoria Police spokesman confirmed a discrepancy was identified when, as a matter of routine, a sum of money was banked.

He said a review of the circumstances surrounding the incident was undertaken as soon as the local area became aware of the theft and an ESD investigation commenced shortly after.

The embarrassed force has taken steps to try to ensure all current processes within the office are being correctly adhered to.

An external auditor has been called in to review current procedures and is continuing to provide advice and guidance to Victoria Police.

The Logistics and Exhibits Office (LEO) was set up in July 2006 and is responsible for managing all exhibits relating to criminal investigations emanating from the Crime Department work groups.

The spokesman said more than 45,000 exhibits were processed by LEO each year and this was the first time an incident of this nature has occurred.

He said the Office of Police Integrity had been alerted and was oversighting the ESD investigation.

The amount of fraudulent transactions per week is never revealed to the general population.

The police have an understanding with the mass media not to let certain information out into the public arena.

There is a lot more than one incident of $5000 gone missing.

The politics behind the deliberate misinformation is to not give the public the perception that the are corrupt police within the government, and that the government is in control of its police force, which in reality it is not.

Certain members of the police for are involved in drug syndicates, together with their lawyers help the narcotics industry move along to the unseen eye of the masses.

Judges rarely rule against the 'system' even though the perpetrator's or criminals are upholding the law.

Magistrates, lawyers and prosecutors work together to acquit any police of wrongful doings.

This is usually done by:

  • tampering with evidence,
  • providing false information to the courts,
  • providing false witnesses,
  • falsifying events,
  • framing individuals with narcotics


are just to name a few.

In out of court sessions, the question is raised in which lodge of the brotherhood one belongs to in order to help their brethren.

In Melbourne a recent 'pseudo' completion of a barrier on the Westgate bridge was made in order to prevent suicide jumping, after a very public appeal by the parents of an individual who plunged to his death from the Westgate bridge.

The reality of the situation was that there was on average one jump per day from the bridge, but this was not made public by the mass media.

Misinformation is a deliberate tactic used by authorities to push an agenda, which is conducive to governance.

The Ethical Standards Committee is a so called 'authority', is a Public Relations exercise, set up to please the public, that such an institution exists that deals with corrupt police, but in reality its findings support police corruption.

Victorian and New South Wales Police are long considered the most corrupt in Australia.

Cheap Unhygienic Smelly Uneducated Indians

It is no surprise that the average Australian has a low opinion of Indian immigrants that come into Australia.

The policy is to import these people as the next generation of slave labour, which is a move supported by the governments on both sides of the ocean.

They are given cash bonus upon arrival to Australia, housed under 'schemes' and given education at the expense of Australian citizens missing out on education in their own country.

Certain government institutions see these people as uneducated unhygienic trash.

"These people don't even know what toilets are for!", as said by an unnamed source.

So much so that the government has issued an instructions diagram on how to use a toilet.

see illustration below:

The illustration indicates that it is not advisable to stand on the toilet and perform one's business.

The illustration also indicates that on is not allowed to secrete fecal matter on the floor.

These prohibitions indicate a need for the instruction to occur, suggesting that Indians would do their business on the floors of buildings, a skill that is widely regarded as common sense.

The instructions also indicate that it is advisable to use toilet paper, as Indians commonly use their left hand to wipe the feces from their anus.

Occupation Health and Safety (O.H & S) issues in many workplaces have been raised as to the reheating of food in microwave ovens which are used by both Indian and non Indian staff, as to the health aspect after traditional Indian food is reheated.

The largest issues seen by many employers is that if any concerns are raised, the automatic catch phrase of 'racism' is used by the Indian staff, whereas the real concern is food hygiene.

Hello you stupid racist drunk India calling


What the Indian call centre staff are really told about Australians

  • Indian call centres get culture training
  • Told Australians are dumb, drunk, racist

"Just stating the facts, guys. Australia is known as the dumbest continent . . . so speak slowly" - CALL CENTRE TEACHER

INDIAN call centres are teaching staff Australia is the world's "dumbest continent" where people "drink constantly" and are "quite racist".

Staff taught "how to act Australian" are also told to "speak slowly" to customers on the other end of the phone line because they tend to be technologically "backwards".

Indian-based telephone spruikers and helpline operators are also warned that Australians are "touchy" about their pets.

They are also instructed it's OK to hang up on Australians who use the "preferred term for us" - "brown bastards".

The revelations have caused a stir in the US over cultural stereotyping after they appeared in the reputable news magazine Mother Jones.

One of the magazine's writers, journalist Andrew Marantz, spent weeks undertaking training in India with locals at an organisation called the Delhi Call Centre.

"For three weeks, a culture trainer will teach us conversational skills, Australian pop culture, and the terms of the mobile phone contracts we'll be peddling," he says. "Our first job at DCC will be to interrupt Australians at dinner and ask them to switch phone providers."

Marantz told The Sunday Mail he undertook the investigation last year, when there was some publicity about Indian students in Australia facing violent attacks.

The training program taught employees about conversational skills and Australian pop culture in the hope that they would build a rapport with the person they were trying to sell to.

In "dissecting" the Australian psyche in 20 minutes, the teacher told the class, "Just stating the facts, guys. Australia is known as the dumbest continent. Literally, college was unknown there until recently, so speak slowly".

"Technologically speaking, they're somewhat backward, as well. The average person's mobile would be no better than, say, a Nokia 3110 classic."

That revelation "drew scoffs from around the room".

"Australians drink constantly," the teacher warned. "If you call on a Friday night, they'll be smashed - every time.

"Oh, and don't attempt to make small talk with them about their pets, OK? They can be quite touchy about animals."

When one call centre student asked what kind of people lived in Australia, the teacher replied: "Let's admit: they are quite racist. They do not like Indians."

She continued: "Their preferred term for us is . . . 'brown bastards'."

America’s welfare supporting poverty

Currently in the United States of America, the welfare system is set up in such a manner that it is supporting a ‘minority’ group.

In Australia the term ‘dole’ is a colloquial term used to describe a person who is on government assisted benefits whilst looking for work. The term ‘dole bludger’ is used to described a person who is on benefits and may have no intention of finding work.

In the United States, one can receive government of $950 per month per child of one is from an African-American background. If a family is to have 4 children whilst on benefits, then the government assistance is close to $4000 per month clear (non taxed).

As of July 2011, the salary rate of an automotive factory worker can range from US$ 18,170 – 45,619.

A family with 4 children can have $48,000 per year from the government for not working.

A much better proposition, than working for a living in a blue collar job.

Sociologists indicate that this kind of welfare has detrimental effects on the community, and the individuals are generally caught up in the poverty cycle once they have entered it.

Revealed: The real winners of Gillard's carbon price plan



  • Demand for accountants will surge in year ahead
  • Lawyers set to profit from legislation challenges
  • Big banks will trade carbon permits from 2015

BIG banks, accountants and lawyers are among the big winners to cash in on the carbon plan, as companies wrestle with reporting requirements arising from the tax.

Research by IBIS World shows the demand for accountants will surge by 3.4 per cent in the next year because of the Government’s clean action plan, The Australian reported.

The research shows that demand for accounting and business advisory services will boom over the next five years, as businesses try to adapt their practices to “mitigate the downside - or capitalise on the upside of the new legislation".

Financial services firms are also likely to profit from the overhaul of the tax system announced as part of the carbon plan.

Banks will be involved in trading carbon permits when emissions trading starts in 2015, and will develop new products to help polluters reduce their carbon exposure.


Australian Bankers' Association chief executive Steven Munchenberg said the Government's carbon price was "essentially creating a new market".

"We would therefore expect to see a range of instruments developed to help companies manage their carbon exposure," he said.

Lawyers will also benefit from the boom, with Ibis predicting demand for services to rise by 3.8 per cent.

Big law firms are set to be major winners if energy-intensive companies try to challenge the legislation.


theaustralian.com.au 15 Jul 2011

The political and business community are essentially the same people who work together with the law makers and other top business executives to make laws that are only beneficial to themselves.

This comes at great cost to the general populous at large, and is a direct assault of robbing them of their personal savings, just to make ends meet.

The politics is to have a society with two classes of individuals where the majority of the middle class will be dissolved into the lower class.


Massive Censorship Of Digg Uncovered

From the article:

A group of influential conservative members of the behemoth social media site Digg.com have just been caught red-handed in a widespread campaign of censorship, having multiple accounts, upvote padding, and deliberately trying to ban progressives. An undercover investigation has exposed this effort, which has been in action for more than one year.

“The more liberal stories that were buried the better chance conservative stories have to get to the front page. I’ll continue to bury their submissions until they change their ways and become conservatives.”
-phoenixtx (aka vrayz)

Digg.com is the powerhouse of social media websites. It is ranked 50th among US websites by Alexa (117th in the world), by far the most influential social media site. It reached one million users in 2007 and likely has more than tripled that by this point. Digg generates around 25 million page views per month, over one third of the page views of the NY Times. Front page stories regularly overwhelm and temporarily shut down websites in a process called the “Digg Effect.”

The concept behind the site is simple. Submitted webpages (news, videos, or images) can be voted up (digging) or down (burying) by each user, sort of a democracy in the internet model. If an article gets enough diggs, it leaves the upcoming section and reaches the front page where most users spend their time, and can generate thousands of page views.

This model also made it very susceptible to external gaming whereby users from certain groups attempt to push their viewpoint or articles to the front page to give them traction. This was evident with the daily spamming of the upcoming Political section with white supremacist material from the British National Party (articles which rarely reached the front page). The inverse of this effect is more devastating however. Bury brigades could effectively remove stories from the upcoming sections by collectively burying them.

One bury brigade in particular is a conservative group that has become so organized and influential that they are able to bury over 90% of the articles by certain users and websites submitted within 1-3 hours, regardless of subject material. Literally thousands of stories have already been artificially removed from Digg due to this group. When a story is buried, it is removed from the upcoming section (where it is usually at for ~24 hours) and cannot reach the front page, so by doing this, this one group is removing the ability of the community as a whole to judge the merits or interest of these stories on their own (in essence: censoring content). This group is known as the Digg “Patriots”.

Revealed: Best age for having a baby

Another 'lie' brought to you by the trusty 'news' source.

From an 'opinion' by people (mothers), that have had their natural instinct postponed by the industrial revolution, the new media claims that that the information is factual.

Information is given to the populous to support a particular agenda.

From the article:

Australian women say best age for children is 29

  • 59pc of women think 29 best age to start family
  • Felt more secure in their finances, relationship

HAVING a baby is high on the list of things to do before turning 30.

Most women - 59 per cent - think 29 is the best age to start a family, Health Department figures show.

Women are waiting four years longer to give birth than in 1985.

The research found many women felt they were best placed to procreate at 29 as they were secure both financially and in their relationships.

Social analyst David Chalke said many women wanted to start before they were 30 as they still wanted to be "young" mums.

"They don't want to admit to themselves that they've left it until their 30s and want to start when they are young," Mr Chalke said.

"But the gulf between our aspirations and reality is getting larger in Australia.

"We are seeing this rush of women in their late 30s having their first children before they hit 40.

"Either people haven't found the right person, or just haven't got around to it - they are going up the career ladder or saving for a house, and house prices are going through the roof."

Australian Institute of Family Studies research has found many parents wished they had started even younger after having their first child.

"Many said they didn't know how fantastic it would be until they had their first child," assistant director of research Ruth Weston said.

Margarita Williams was 29 when she gave birth to Reuben seven weeks ago, but said it was entirely circumstantial.

"It was the right time for my husband and me - I wasn't thinking I needed to do it before I hit 30," she said.

"The main factors for us were that we were financially ready, stable and settled. We married a couple of years ago and bought a house."



World's richest man, Carlos Slim, loses $6.7 billion, estimates say

CARLOS Slim, the world's richest man, lost around $US6.7 billion last week.

According to data compiled by Bloomberg, Slim's stock portfolio has fallen 9.5 per cent since July 29 when measured in US dollars, and is now valued at $64.4 billion.

The Standard & Poor's 500 has fallen 7.2 per cent during that time.

Slim, 71, has taken a hit as Mexico's benchmark IPC index dropped 6.4 per cent and the peso slid 2.3 per cent against the dollar on concerns that the flagging US economy will hurt demand for assets in its southern neighbour. The removal of three of Slim's companies from the IPC index has made matters worse for the billionaire.

Leon Cabrera, a trader at Mexico City-based Vanguardia Casa de Bolsa, told Bloomberg that Slim was "particularly hurt" by the companies that were removed from the IPC.

When Slim's holding are measured in Mexican pesos, the drop in value was somewhere around 7.3 per cent.

Forbes named Slim the world's richest man, and put him at the top of its annual World Billionaires' list, for the second year in a row this year. In March, the magazine put Slim's net worth at $74 billion, and said it had grown by $20.5 billion in the previous year, on the strength of the Mexican stock market, a stronger peso, and "successful mining and real estate spinoffs from conglomerate Grupo Carso."

According to Bloomberg, Slim's fellow billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have fared slightly better during the recent market turmoil. Gates's Microsoft Corp. dropped 6.3 per cent last week, while Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. fell 3.9 per cent.

World markets are expected to open down on Monday, in the wake of Standard & Poor's decision to downgrade the US credit rating from AAA to AA+. Wall Street experienced its worst week since September 2008 last week, and Reuters reports that global stocks lost $2.5 trillion in value.

The so called 'loss' is a paper loss and NOT a real monetary loss.

Another lie perpetuated by the mass media, in order to stupify the masses, and keep the true leaders of the world out of the public eye.

The Rothschild's are never mentioned in any mass media articles, and did not appear in the Forbes rich list.

The banking families are deliberately kept out of the public eye.

In the 1850's it was estimated that they (the Rothschild's) controlled 80% of the world's economy.

Victorian gov $1b water fraud

The Victorian government has committed fraud to the tune of $1,000,000,000 against its taxpayers, and contributed to the so called 'drought' that Victoria faced, which was a government sponsored event.

Victorians have payed for a pipeline that has not been turned on by the government in an attempt to make a drought in order to justify the building of a desalination plant, at the expense of the public (once again).

No legal institution will take class action against its government that has plunged the Victorian economy into a spiral, as a result of inflated prices due to the 'shortage of water', whilst at the same time government were watering their lawn, when the populous were told to turn off their taps.




The hears sun article:

Precious water down the drain

mentions:


ENOUGH water to fill Melbourne's storages full is going into the ocean because the Baillieu Government won't switch on a $1 billion pipeline.


With Lake Eildon at 91 per cent - its highest level in 15 years - and billions of litres being released from it every day to prevent flooding, Water Minister Peter Walsh refuses to switch on the pipeline or say when he will.

The pipeline has been paid for by taxpayers and water users.

The State Opposition has branded the stance "pig-headed" and "ideologically stubborn".

After pledging to use the pipe only in extreme circumstances, the Baillieu Government must now choose either to break an election promise, or continue to allow billions of litres of water to go down the drain.

Close to 10 gigalitres - or 10 billion litres - of water a day has been released from the reservoir in recent weeks. That's enough to supply Melbourne's water for a year.

Melbourne uses about 988 million litres a day.

The water at Lake Eildon, in the state's northeast, is being released into the Goulburn River, which feeds into the Murray River near Echuca and empties into the ocean off South Australia.

Opposition water spokesman John Lenders accused the Government of wasting the water in fear of upsetting regional Victorians by piping it to Melbourne.

"In a week, they're spilling all the water Melbourne uses and it's all because the Government has a policy and it's too stubborn to put it down the pipe," he said.

"When the next drought comes, and it will come, Melbourne will need more water.

"The plug has been pulled out and the water is running all the way to the ocean in South Australia when it could basically, at no cost, be stored in Melbourne's dams."

About 700 million litres was released from Lake Eildon on Friday. Another 500 million litres was released yesterday.

Mr Walsh said the water was being released into rivers to mitigate the risk of flooding downstream. He said it would be too difficult and expensive to divert flows to Melbourne.

"With Sugarloaf full, and Maroondah Reservoir overflowing upstream of it, it is impossible to use the north-south pipeline to bring water to Melbourne," he said.

But Mr Lenders said storages could easily be moved to make way for more water.

"They're just keeping Melbourne's northern dams full so they've got an excuse not to use the pipeline," he said.

Melbourne Water supply manager John Woodland said the state was experiencing good flows into its major dams. It made sense to make the most of them before pumping reserves from Lake Eildon.

Melbourne Water customers paid $350 million for the right to pump 75 billion litres across the Great Dividing Range from Lake Eildon.
