I’m not talking about economic realities or political realities… I’m talking about two of the most transformative technologies that are beginning to flow into our markets as well speak: virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).
These are not just for gamers, young hipsters or spoiled millennials. AR and VR are already involved in some very real world efforts that illustrate the value underneath these whiz bang technologies.
What’s the difference?
VR is a computer generated simulation of a 3D environment where you can interact in real time, using VR headsets, gloves, suits, etc.
AR superimposes a computer generated view on top of what you are seeing in real life.
The difference is, VR tends to be completely immersive. Facebook’s Oculus Rift is a VR headset. If you have it on and you’re moving in a room to get a drink from the refrigerator, you may be moving in the game but you have no idea where you are in the room. You’re locked into the reality in your headset. Read more »(815 words, estimated 3:16 mins reading time)
God said that all who do not love Him must, necessarily, love death (Proverbs 8:36).
The love of death is prevalent in our society for a number of reasons, most of which are not widely understood. When informed of the esoteric (hidden) and occultic nature of these influences, people tend to reject the information. Most folks deny the fact of mass social conditioning toward the love of death because they are actually among the many who are deceived and programmed. Perhaps the biggest outfit serving up death to Americans is the professional medical establishment, a truth that is precisely the opposite of what we are schooled and told.
Our forebearers knew the truth of the matter. They lived in a time when it was easier, more traditional, more fashionable and more practical to choose God over the ideologies of men. Read more »(1126 words, estimated 4:30 mins reading time)
Trump’s feelings of regret were revealed in a piece published Thursday by The New York Times, after the new president got caught in the middle of GOP disagreements on how to best unravel Obamacare.
The president, according to the report, blames House Speaker Paul Ryan for pushing him to instead pursue Obamacare repeal efforts.
From the report:
Mr. Trump has told four people close to him that he regrets going along with Speaker Paul D. Ryan’s plan to push a health care overhaul before unveiling a tax cut proposal more politically palatable to Republicans.
He said ruefully this week that he should have done tax reform first when it became clear that the quick-hit health care victory he had hoped for was not going to materialize on Thursday, the seventh anniversary of the act’s passage, when the legislation was scheduled for a vote.

After reading this article, you will never be careless with your child in a public place ever again. There really are predators out there that make a lot of money abducting children. Some of the children that are abducted are abused, tortured or even killed inside the United States, but many others are quickly sent to the nearest port, shipped overseas, and ultimately used for some of the most horrific purposes that you can possibly imagine. So if your child is kidnapped by professional traffickers, there is a chance that your precious little one could end up on the other side of the planet.

Why are so many people suddenly moving away from major U.S. cities? Recently, I wrote about the mass exodus that is happening out of the state of California, but the truth is that what is happening there is just part of a national phenomenon. The populations of some of our largest cities are steadily shrinking, and many experts are completely mystified by the seismic demographic shifts that we are now witnessing. Of course there are a whole host of reasons why people would want to move away from huge cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore and Cleveland. For some families, it simply comes down to wanting a better life for their children. But as you will see below, there are others that believe that things in this country are about to take an apocalyptic turn, and the big cities will not be a place that you want to be when economic collapse, rioting, looting, civil unrest and crime are all spiraling out of control.

Nobody can live without their liver, but we all try it.
The human liver was created to be a human garbage disposal. But in many people their liver is a city dump. The result is that over-waste means overwork.
Liver sludge translates into low energy, an overweight body, stiff joints, digestion problems, and accumulation of toxins from junk foods and drugs. And since seniors have less ability to assimilate, the toxic buildup of pharmaceutical drugs becomes deadly and fatal. Slower and deteriorated liver and kidney functions compound the buildup of toxemia. Enough toxemia concludes life on this earth.
“Detox” is a word you see and hear all the time these days but what does it mean? It means we all need to do something for our health that we never think about, and that is help our livers take out the trash. We can give our liver new life at any age and most of our health problems will improve or go away. We don’t have to know that our livers are toxic. We can assume it.

President Donald Trump’s appointment of Alabama conservative Jeff Sessions to head the Justice Department had many drug reform advocates worried. But the editor of a top Libertarian magazine says Sessions has, at best, the ability to slow the trend toward national marijuana legalization.
“The Trump administration can slow down marijuana legalization, but they can’t stop it,” Reason senior editor Jacob Sullum says in a video recently produced by the outlet.
The issue, Sullum contends, is a lack of federal power to force “legal” states to reintroduce harsh marijuana laws.
But Sessions does have some options if he is interested in using federal power to trump individual and state rights because he believes prohibition policies work.
“He could indeed crack down on a lot of businesses in the states where marijuana is legal,” according to Sullum. “That would obviously have a very disrupting effect on the industry.” Read more »(277 words, estimated 1:06 mins reading time)
