Want to Start a Company? Take a Few Months Off to Travel First



Last year, entrepreneur Adam Lyons bought a one-way ticket to South America. He spent time volunteering with Bolivian children, teaching them to make crafts to sell – a pretty entrepreneurial activity for a kid. In fact, he found the whole region to be very entrepreneurial.
“It’s 60-year-old ladies that are walking around making fresh orange juice, or old men walking around selling dolls or all the counterfeit, fake North Face jackets, fake Ray-Bans. It’s everybody out there just hustling,” says Lyons.
Lyons had always wanted to do charity work, and he had finally saved up enough money to quit his job. He was planning on starting a company, but he wanted to mull over some ideas first.

One of his ideas was a car insurance comparison site. When he met other travelers, he often chatted with them about it, and he discovered that car insurance sites were huge in Britain – something he might not have realized had he stayed put in the United States.
He also ran into other foreign entrepreneurs. Sitting down to play cards, he met the US founder of a major online shoe site (he wouldn’t tell me which one), who travels to Peru every 3 months to visit his factory. He also met people who exported fruit to sell to Breyers ice cream.
“It was really cool to … get inspired by all these successful people that were making a living for themselves and actually creating jobs for other people,” says Lyons, who went on to launch Insurance Zebra and graduate from the AlphaLab accelerator.
And it turns out, traveling is a lot like starting a company. Like a first-time entrepreneur, he didn’t know what to expect, and he had to learn whole new languages (as entrepreneurs learn terms to use with VCs).
“With entrepreneurship, you don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s unpredictable. There’s ups and downs,” he says.
As for travel: “You just do it. I got a 1-way ticket and I went. I just jumped right into it.” Sounds like great advice for startups, too.

ZIONIST POWER STRUCTURE IN AMERICA


Now that we have established the ruthless and criminal nature of radical Zionism, one more lesson needs to be understood before we return to the five dancing Israelis of 9-11 and other related stories. Even the Zionists themselves have never denied that they have long exerted great influence in America. But what we must understand is that the Zionists do not merely influence United States policy....they dominate it! It is this domination that enables them to pull off monstrous crimes and then conceal them from the general public.
The observation that Zionists dominate the American media, government, academia, and Hollywood has been made by many prominent Americans and is easily verifiable by public information.
Henry Ford said this:
"If after having elected their man or group, obedience is not rendered to the Jewish control, then you speedily hear of "scandals" and "investigations" and "impeachments" for the removal of the disobedient. Usually a man with a "past" proves the most obedient instrument, but even a good man can often be tangled up in campaign practices that compromise him. It has been commonly known that Jewish manipulation of American election campaigns have been so skillfully handled, that no matter which candidate was elected, there was ready made a sufficient amount of evidence to discredit him in case his Jewish masters needed to discredit him." (1)
Charles Lindbergh said this:
“Their greatest danger to this country lies in the Jewish ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government. (2)
Admiral Thomas Moorer, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff under Ronald Reagan said this:
"I've never seen a President -- I don't care who he is -- stand up to them [the Israelis]. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. If the American people understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don't have any idea what goes on." (emphasis added) (3)
While a guest on ABC's Face the Nation, William Fulbright - US Senator and Chairman of the US Foreign Relations committee - once said this before a national audience:
"Israel controls the United States Senate. We should be more concerned about the United States' interests."  (emphasis added) (4)
Nationally syndicated columnist and former presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan said:
"The United States Congress is Israeli occupied territory." (5)
And US religious leader Billy Graham and President Richard Nixon once had the following exchange, which was caught on tape:
GRAHAM: The Jewish stranglehold on the media has got to be broken or this country's going down the drain".
NIXON: "You believe that?"
GRAHAM: "Yes, sir."
NIXON: "Oh boy. So do I. I can't ever say that but I do believe it" (emphasis added) 
(6)
More recently, U.S. Brigadier General James J. David (Ret.), in an article entitled "A Passionate Attachment to Israel", wrote:
"Is there any criminal act that Israel can do without being protected from criticism from the United States? If there is I haven't seen it. And I haven't seen it from the Bush Administration or from the Clinton Administration or from any administration before them. But when you consider the influence of Israel's lobby and its political action committees and the more than $41 million they've given to Congress and the White House, is it any wonder Israel is shielded from any shame?
For more than 54 years the Israelis have committed acts that no other nation would dare get away with. But even here in America, where it is not yet illegal to publicly ask the wrong questions, any public figure that does so is subjected to smears, intimidation, and the attempted destruction of his career and reputation by Jewish organizations and by the very cooperative news media." (7) (emphasis added)
But enough of quoting others. Let's look at the facts of Zionist control.
MEDIA: ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, UPN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Daily News, Time Magazine, Newsweek, People Magazine, US News and World Report and countless other media and Hollywood companies all have either a Zionist CEO, or a Zionist News President, or are owned by a media conglomerate which has a Zionist CEO. (8) Have you ever noticed how Hollywood movies always seem to portray Germans and Arabs as a bigoted fanatics or terrorists? Now you know why!
GOVERNMENT: AIPAC (the Israeli lobbying organization), and the ADL are the most feared political pressure groups in Washington DC. Also carrying heavy political clout are well funded and well organized Zionist  groups such as JINSA (Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs), ZOA (Zionist Organization of America), and AJC (American Jewish Congress.) By their own admission, these groups are capable of unseating Congressmen and Senators that do not carry out their requests. The majority of Congressmen from both political parties receive large donations from AIPAC. Writing for the Nation Magazine, journalist Michael Massing explains:
“AIPAC is widely regarded as the most powerful foreign-policy lobby in Washington. Its 60,000 members shower millions of dollars on hundreds of members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. Newspapers like the New York Times fear the Jewish lobby organizations as well. "It's very intimidating," said a correspondent at another large daily. "The pressure from these groups is relentless." (9)
PENTAGON: The Pentagon is under the control of a hard core group of  Zionist moles led by the maniacal Richard Perle. The civilian Defense Policy Board actually wields more control over the military establishment than the Defense Secretary or the generals and admirals. There are a number of other Zionists who serve on this board (Kissinger, Cohen, Schlessinger, Adelman, Abrams) as well as non-jewish members who have always supported Israel and the expansion of the "War on Terror". The notoriously belligerent Perle, nicknamed the "The Prince of Darkness", is Chairman of the Board. (10) Perle is also a former Director of The Jerusalem Post and serves on the Board of Directors of several Israeli companies.
The Undersecretary of Defense is Paul Wolfowitz, another Zionist zealot who lived in Israel as a teenager and has family living there now.
The Undersecratary of Defense Policy is Douglass Feith, a Zionist award winner whose law firm has offices in Israel.
The Zionist Pentagon gang of Perle, Wolfowitz , and Feith represent 3 of the top 4 civilian leadership positions of America’s armed forces. Careerist scoundrels like Condoleeza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld are either under their influence or unwilling to oppose their drive for WW III. The Perle-Wolfowitz-Feith gang constitutes a fanatical and warmongering "government-within-a-government". In league with these Zionist Pentagon conspirators are Orthodox jewish Zionist and probable 2004 Presidential candidate, Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-CT), his partner in crime, Senator John McCain (R-AZ), and scores of other Zionist or Zionist owned Senators, Congressmen, and media personalities.
An Israeli journalist named Ari Shavit, lamenting the harsh treatments that his government dishes out to the Palestinians, made the following observation in Ha'aretz, a leading Israeli journal:
"We believe with absolute certitude that now, with the White House and Senate in our hands along with the Pentagon and the New York Times, the lives [of Arabs] do not count as much as our own. Their blood does not count as much as our blood. We believe with absolute certitude that now, when we have AIPAC [the Israel lobby] and [Edgar] Bronfman and the Anti-Defamation League, , we truly have the right to tell 400,000 people that in eight hours they must flee from their homes. And that we have the right to rain bombs on their villages and towns and populated areas. That we have the right to kill without any guilt." (11)

And this only scratches the surface of Zionist power! We haven’t even mentioned the powerful Zionist element that dominates finance (Greenspan, Soros, Rothschild, Goldman, Sachs, Schwab, Warburg etc.), publishing, (Simon & Schuster, Newhouse Publications etc.) and the academic world. With such awesome power to control and cover up events, is it any wonder why so many of America's journalists, intellectuals, and politicians are afraid to even talk about this issue?
Is it any wonder why President Bill Clinton would grovel before a jewish audience at a $350 a plate dinner, and utter something as ridiculously pathetic as the following statement:
"The Israelis know that if the Iraqi or the Iranian army came across the Jordan River, I would personally grab a rifle, get in a ditch, and fight and die." (12) (emphasis added)
It was very fitting that Bill Clinton should have made those comments before a  Zionist women's charity called the Hadassah Foundation. Hadassah (also known as Esther) is the heroine of the Book of Esther in the Bible's  Old Testament. This non-religious story tells of a scheme by Hadassah and her Uncle Mordecai to infiltrate and gain political influence over the Persian King Xerxes; influence which was then used to kill and destroy their anti-jewish enemies.
I could go on at much greater length about Zionist power in banking, academia, and book publishing, but I want to get back to the dancing Israelis. Have I made my point yet?

Testosterone therapy linked to weight loss in men

Long-term testosterone therapy may reduce weight, waist circumference and body mass index (BMI) in hypogonadal men who are overweight or obese, according to research presented at the Endo 2012 conference held recently in Houston, Texas, US.

The open-label, prospective registry study included 255 men (mean age 60.6 years) with testosterone levels between 1.7 and 3.5 ng/mL who were given parenteral testosterone undecanoate 1,000 mg every 12 weeks for up to 5 years.

Their mean body weight significantly decreased from 106.22 kg at baseline to 90.07 kg after 5 years (P≤0.0001). Mean waist circumference also significantly declined from 107.24 cm at baseline to 98.46 cm after 5 years (P≤0.0001), while mean BMI declined from 33.93 to 29.17 (P≤0.0001).

The benefit was progressive over the follow-up period, said the researchers. Mean weight loss after 1 year was 4.12 percent, after 2 years 7.47 percent, after 3 years 9.01 percent, after 4 years, 11.26 percent and after 5 years 13.21 percent. At baseline, 96 percent of men had a waist circumference of ≥94 cm. This proportion decreased to 71 percent after 5 years.

“It is clear that long-term testosterone treatment in hypogonadal men makes them lose weight,” said study author Professor Farid Saad of the Gulf Medical University, Ajman, UAE and head of Global Medical Affairs (Andrology) at Bayer Pharma.

Adverse events and adverse drug reactions (ADRs) occurred in 12 percent and 6 percent of patients, respectively. The most common ADRs were increase in hematocrit, increase in prostate specific antigen (PSA), and injection site pain (all <1 br="br" cancer="cancer" case="case" no="no" observed.="observed." of="of" percent="percent" prostate="prostate" was="was">
Another study has confirmed similar benefits of testosterone therapy. The IPASS* study spanning 23 countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Australia, analyzed 1,438 (mean age 49.2 years) hypogonadal men who were overweight and were given a total of 6,333 injections of long-acting-intramuscular testosterone undecanoate over 9 to 12 months. [J Sex Med 2012; DOI: 10.1111/j.17436109.2012.02853.x]

While their scores of mental and psychosexual functions (libido, vigor, overall mood, and ability to concentrate) improved markedly, mean waist circumference decreased from 100 cm to 96 cm. Blood pressure and lipid parameters were also favorably altered in a significant manner, said the researchers.

After four injection intervals, the percentage of patients with ‘low’ or ‘very low’ levels of sexual desire/libido decreased from 64 percent at baseline to 10 percent; moderate, severe, or extremely severe erectile dysfunction decreased from 67 percent to 19 percent. At the last observation, 89 percent of patients were ‘satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ with therapy.

“Keeping testosterone levels normal has clear health benefits for the male, other than sexual,” concluded Professor Peter Lim, urologist at the Gleneagles Medical Centre and head of the Society for Men’s Health Singapore.

Health Benefits Of Drinking Warm Water




This is the final of the two articles appearing on why drinking water is considered good for the human body. However, healthcare practitioners also point out that drinking lot of water is only good for those people who have healthy kidneys and those persons with chronic kidney impairment or related renal problems should avoid drinking excessive water.

  As thick smog continued to hang over the Malaysian peninsula in June this year, some parts of the country registered poor readings on the Air Pollutant Index (API).

The temperature in many parts of the country soared and hovered around 30 degrees Celsius.

But when the thickness of the haze reached its peak, health authorities asked members of the general public to remain indoors, unless they had something urgent to attend to.

"Stay indoors and drink a lot of warm water," Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai told reporters when quizzed on what the precautions that the public should take in such a situation.

WHY DRINK WARM WATER?

Many people believe that drinking hot or warm water as opposed to cold or chilled water is simply an old wives tale.

However, healthcare practitioners indicate that drinking warm water prolongs the life of body cells.

COLD WATER VS WARM WATER

Drinking cold water is considered more satisfying as it quenches our thirst.

"However scientists actually believe that the intake of cold or chilled water solidifies the fats in our food and make it harder for us to digest and disperse the unwanted fats from our body," medical practitioner Dr A. Radha said.

She added that cold water is not as good for hydration as compared with water that is at room temperature. There is a theory which indicates that cold water causes the blood vessels surrounding the stomach to shrink, which slows absorption.

Some medical researchers have varying opinions on whether drinking cold water is as good for the body as drinking warm water, particularly while a person is exercising.

"Some physicians suggest that water at room temperature is better than cold water, because the body has to expend energy heating the cold water consumed to bring it at par with the body's temperature.

"On the other hand, some doctors say that after physical exertion, you should drink cold water as it will help cool the body more effectively, than water which is at room temperature," Dr Radha stated.

She added that most people who drink cold water are likely to consume more of it, since it tends to taste better and is more satisfying. Even if drinking cold water results in marginal water loss, the extra water that a person probably ends up drinking makes up for this.

THE CASE AGAINST COLD DRINKS

Dr Radha points out that consuming cold drinks is not very healthy as they solidify the fats from the foods we have just eaten or are eating at present.

"This makes it harder for the body to digest and remove unwanted fats from its system.

"However, if we simply swap our cold drinks for a warm drink such as warm water, coffee or tea, the warm fluids will keep the fats in our foods in liquid form, ease the digestive system and help the fats pass through our body reducing the risk of clogged arteries," she said.

"If you are attempting to bring down a fever, or assist someone who has sunstroke, you should not immerse that person in cold water. Instead you should ask the person to drink lukewarm water, or even slightly warm water," Dr Radha advised.

Dr Radha explained that cold water can provoke chills, which may actually raise the body's temperature, though taking cold baths are helpful in bringing a high fever down.

If people with fever drink cold water that is very icy, they may also get chilly, so lukewarm or tepid water may be a better choice for them.

Also warm or hot water relaxes the body in a better way. Cold water might be more refreshing, but it can also disrupt your vocal cords, she noted.

KNOWING IF YOU ARE DRINKING ENOUGH WATER

Dr Radha said that the best indicator on whether the body is getting enough water is the colour of one's urine.

"If the urine is dark yellow, chances are that a person is not getting enough water. If the urine passed out is clear to very light yellow in colour, then the fluid intake is adequate. Remember that the colour of urine passed in the morning will always be a little darker," she said.

She also pointed out that scientists believe that drinking warm water with meals also helps in losing weight.

"If we simply swap our cold drinks for a warm drink like warm water, coffee, tea or herbal drinks, the warm fluids will help the fats in our food to remain in a liquid state and will ease the digestive system and help release the fats from our body, thereby reducing the chance of our arteries becoming clogged with fat particles.

Dr Radha also mentioned that as per traditional Chinese medicine, a person should drink water at room temperature or slightly warm.

"Cold water is not so good for your stomach," she noted.
