Most kids hate it, but broccoli, is the vegetable of youth.
I’ve previously written to you about broccoli’s anti-cancer properties. But now we have something new on this special food.
Research from the Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis discovered that a compound found in broccoli is converted by the body into the coenzyme NAD (nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide) that plays a key role in the energy production at the cellular level. NAD production slows as we age and our energy supply dwindles.
Scientists provided healthy mice with the compound NMN – found in broccoli – then monitored the health of the mice over their lifetimes. They found that even though the mice aged they appeared very much like young mice; maintaining their energy, weight and health. Their skeletal muscles and bone density were retained, their retinas remained healthy and their livers maintained their function. They even remained more insulin resistant when compared to mice the same age given a placebo instead of NMN.

Current stock market valuations are not sustainable. If there is one thing that I want you to remember from this article, it is that cold, hard fact. In 1929, 2000 and 2008, stock prices soared to absolutely absurd levels just before horrible stock market crashes. What goes up must eventually come down, and the stock market bubble of today will be no exception. In fact, virtually everyone in the financial community acknowledges that stock prices are irrationally high right now. Some are suggesting that there is still time to jump in and make money before the crash comes, while others are recommending a much more cautious approach. But what almost everyone agrees on is the fact that stocks cannot go up like this forever.
On Tuesday, the Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq all set brand new record highs once again. Overall, U.S. stocks are now up more than 10 percent since the election, and this is probably the greatest post-election stock market rally in our entire history.

Many liberals that are still extremely bitter about the outcome of the election are taking out their frustrations on Trump supporters all over the country. And in some cases, employees are actually being “reassigned”, fired or asked to leave their jobs if they openly admit their support for President Trump. This kind of political discrimination is not supposed to be happening in our workplaces, but it is happening. Many leftists that are in positions of authority around the nation are using that authority to punish people that voted for Donald Trump. So if you voted for Trump and your boss didn’t, you might want to keep your political views to yourself at your workplace if you want to keep your job.
And sharing your political opinions on Facebook is not necessarily safe either. Just ask an elementary school teacher in Collier County, Florida that was just “reassigned” to administrative duties for a pro-Trump Facebook post…

The United States can protect the environment without destroying the economy, the EPA’s new chief said in his first address to agency employees.
Former Oklahoma attorney general and current EPA leader Scott Pruitt told the agency’s 15,000 employees that the agency mission will be “both pro-energy and jobs, and pro-environment” under his leadership.
“I think our nation has been better than any nation in the world at making sure that we do the job of protecting our natural resources and protecting our environment, while also respecting the economic growth and jobs our nation seeks to have,” he said.
Pruitt has been a staunch critic of Obama-era environmental regulations and is expected to lead a charge to reverse parts of the Clean Power Plan and the Clean Water Rule.
Because of his past criticisms of the agency’s work, EPA employees lobbied the Senate to block Pruitt’s confirmation. On Friday, however, he was confirmed on a 52-46 vote.
