Trump’s meeting with Chinese leader

Filed under: Health, Trump — furtherglory @ 4:42 pm

Before Donald Trump flies to China on November 8th, he should bone up on Chinese culture. The worst thing that could happen is that Trump might cause the Chinese leader to “lose face.”

To lose face means to be embarrassed or humiliated, especially publicly. Both this expression and the underlying concept come from Asia; the term itself is a translation of the Chinese tiu lien and has been used in English since the late 1800s.

You can read about Trump’s trip to China at https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/oct/26/extraordinary-elevation-trumps-kowtow-unlikely-to-win-favours-from-xi-jinping

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Donald Trump has saluted the “extraordinary elevation” of President Xi Jinping and compared him to a “king” on the eve of his trip to meet an exalted and emboldened leader now considered China’s most powerful since Mao.

Xi confirmed his absolute supremacy over China’s one-party state this week with the historic decision to enshrine his political thoughts in the Communist party’s constitution during a congress marking the end of his first term.

Party officials responded by showering adjectives of adulation on the man they say is making their nation great again, hailing Xi’s incisive, glorious, magnificent, visionary, pioneering and thrilling leadership.

Trump – who is scheduled to fly to Beijing on 8 November for a three-day visit – went almost as far on Wednesday. “Spoke to President Xi of China to congratulate him on his extraordinary elevation,” the US president tweeted, having refrained from weighing in on Asian affairs during Xi’s politically sensitive summit. “Also discussed NoKo [North Korea] and trade, two very important subjects!”

In a second tweet Trump said he was looking forward to “what will hopefully be a historic trip!”.

Trump continued his charm offensive in an interview with Fox Business Network. “He’s a powerful man,” he told anchor Lou Dobbs. “Now some people might call him the King of China – but he’s called president.”

Experts say Trump wants to butter up Xi before trying to strike a deal over North Korea during his visit.

For many years, I went to a Chinese doctor and had acupuncture once a week. This doctor has told me that I am now too old to have acupuncture. But it might be O.K. for me to have a row of black rocks put on my back. I have had this treatment one time, and I might try it again.

“Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” What should you do when this happens?

Filed under: Health, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 12:07 pm

Hopefully, this never happens to you! But you never know — it could happen to you! What should you do?

What you should do right now, before this ever happens to you, is to locate your closest Fire Department. Then you should call them, right now, and ask them if they have equipment to lift up a person who has fallen and can’t get up. They might tell you that they do not have this equipment, but another fire department close by, does have this equipment.

You then call that fire department and verify that they do have this equipment. If you live alone, you should then write this number on the inside of your arm, where you can see it if you ever fall and can’t get up. Of course, you will have a cell phone in your pocket at all times, if you live alone.

When you call the fire department, you can expect a fire truck to arrive within a few minutes. There will be 3 strong men in the fire truck. When they arrive, they will have a battering ram, ready to break down your door. You will call out to them that the door is not locked and that they can walk right in.

If you don’t want to leave your front door unlocked, you should leave a front window unlocked, just in case something like this ever happens.

When the 3 firemen arrive, one of them will have a device around his waist. This fireman will tell you to grab onto the bar on this device and hold on tight as the device pulls you up.

But first, the fireman will ask you if you will be able to walk, once you are lifted up. You will tell him that Yes, you will be able to walk.

As you are being pulled up, two other firemen will stand on either side of you, just in case you let go and start to fall. After you have been lifted up, these two men will stand beside you as you take your first steps.

When you are up, the firemen will stay a few minutes until they are sure that you are O.K.

Thank God that you have not called 911. If you had called 911, an ambulance would be on it’s way and it will have arrived within minutes. You would have been taken to a hospital, even though you were not hurt. You would have been kept over night in a hospital bed — and a few days later you will get the bill for your hospital stay. Hopefully, your health insurance will pay the bill.

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-wednesday-edition-1.4240252/canadian-holocaust-survivor-prisoner-88-has-died-here-s-how-he-described-his-time-at-auschwitz-1.4240736

Begin quote from news article:

Sigmund Sobolewski, one of the first prisoners to walk through the gates at Auschwitz, has died. He was 94.

Born in Torun, Poland, in 1923, Sobolewski was only 17 when he was arrested and sent to Auschwitz. Known as Prisoner 88, he was held there for 4 1/2 years.

His inmate number was tattooed on his arm and he never forgot what he went through — and he tried to make sure no one did, either.

End quote

As I have said, and written, many times. I believe that a simple diet, that includes lots of potatoes and very little meat, is the key to living a long life.

Excuse me, I am going to eat a bowl of potato salad now. I am 84 years old and I expect to live to the age of 94.

Comparing Planned Parenthood abortions to the Holocaust is fair game

Filed under: Health, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 4:16 pm

The title of my blog post today is the title of a news article in the Kiowa County Signal by Rich Kiper. You can read the article in full here: http://www.kiowacountysignal.com/opinion/20170402/rich-kiper-comparing-planned-parenthood-abortions-to-holocaust-is-fair

Kiper is defending the remarks of Senator Fitzgerald, who compared the seven million babies killed by planned parenthood to the six million Jews killed in the holocaust.

I blogged about this same article once before in a blog post entitled “I have been to Dachau” which you can read here: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2017/04/03/i-have-been-to-dachau/  I am writing more about this article from a different angle.

The following is a quote from the Kiowa Signal news article:

Begin Quote

Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, Planned Parenthood has performed 6,937,406 abortions. This number is based on PP annual reports of 1978-2014 and studies conducted on PP abortions between 1973 and 1978. The numbers do not include abortions performed in 2015 and 2016. Therefore, according to its own reports, PP has exterminated more babies that the Nazis exterminated Jews during the Holocaust. Based on the numbers, Sen. Fitzgerald is correct in that PP is “more insidious than (the Nazis).”

End Quote

Was planned parenthood more insidious than the Nazis?

Begin Quote from Kiawa County Signal news article:

Sen. Fitzgerald is right to be angry with an organization that has killed more babies than the Nazis killed Jews….

He [Fitzgerald] did, though, very clearly compare PP aborting 6,937,406 unwanted babies to the Nazi killing of six million unwanted Jews. Abortion is a horrific act that involves killing an unborn child. Pro-life adherents should praise Sen. Fitzgerald for having the courage to speak truth, knowing full well that he would be subjected to attack by those for whom facts are irrelevant and the life of the unborn is not sacred.

End quote from news article

I think that Kiper is confused.  The Jews are sacred; unborn Children are not.  I am surprised that I need to explain this to you people.

If this were not the case, we would need to be building a lot more monuments to the 7 million children insidiously murdered by planned parenthood.

Will Trump cause the Chinese president to “lose face”?

Filed under: Health, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:08 pm

“Look at that face” as The Donald would say.

According to this news story, Donald Trump is planning to meet with the president of China.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/13/politics/donald-trump-xi-jinping-summit-mar-a-lago/

I think that Trump should bone up on Chinese manners, as fast as he can. He should learn what “losing face” means in Chinese culture. I am familiar with this Chinese expression because I have a Chinese doctor. I used to take acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture cures everything. But the last time that I visited my Chinese doctor, he put small black stones in a line down my back, as is shown in a Geico  commercial. He said that I was too old for acupuncture which would be too strong for me.

Read this to learn what “losing face” means: https://www.yoyochinese.com/blog/What-Does-Losing-Face-Mean-Importance-Face-Chinese-Culture

I predict that the Chinese President will bring his own food and his own cook. Trump will be serving steak and potatoes, but the Chinese don’t eat this type of diet.

The Chinese believe that potatoes are poison and that meat should be eaten in very small amounts. The Chinese think that half of your food should be rice and that the other half should be divided between meat or fish and Chinese vegetables.

Holocaust lies

I am having a hard time today because I am suffering from “pink eye”. I am blind in one eye, and can’t see out of the other.

I have decided to bring back several of my old posts about Jews lying: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/holocaust-lies/

The diet that has made Tom Brady a star athlete

The Atlanta Falcons play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium in Houston on Feb. 5, 2017. (Photo by Barry Chin/The Boston Globe via Getty ImaThe following way of eating is what has made Tom Brady a star athlete:

  • Avoiding nightshades: Where’s the science behind the statement that tomatoes cause inflammation or that nightshades are bad? Tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and eggplants have plenty of nutrients.
  • No dairy: I’ve already discussed the myths about dairy when Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers cut dairy out of his diet. Of course, you don’t want to pound milk or yogurt, but dairy does have important nutrients as well.
  • No fungus: Yes, you don’t want to eat the fungus on your bathtub or the locker room floor or between your toes. But presumably, Campbell is talking about mushrooms here, and not the kind that get you high. Mushrooms can have copper, phosphorous, Vitamins B-2 and B-5, and various antioxidants. Again where’s the scientific evidence against mushrooms?
  • Gluten-free: There’s been no news that Brady has celiac disease or real gluten sensitivity. If you don’t have any of these, as Dr. Daniel A. Leffler, Director of Clinical Research at the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston says, “People who are sensitive to gluten may feel better, but a larger portion will derive no significant benefit from [a gluten-free diet]. They’ll simply waste their money, because these products are expensive.” Of course, this last point doesn’t matter as much to Brady and Giselle.
  • Oils: Cooking with vegetable oils is better than with animal fats or lard. But the differences among the different vegetable oils is still a bit in the air. Some have raised concerned that at higher temperatures olive oil will break down and release toxins but where is the specific proof of this?
  • Also, keep in mind that Brady is not you. He has personal trainers, mentors, and coaches, the best equipment and apparel, lots of comforts, a nice house and neighborhood surroundings, people around him telling him how great he is, a good job with decent benefits, and, yes, a supermodel wife. His diet and chef are not the sole reasons for his success or feeling good. Even if you avoid nightshades, dairy, fungus, and gluten, you probably won’t play football like Tom Brady or get a supermodel wife but may end up spending money on food like he does.

500,000 Holocaust survivors are living out their final years in poverty

Filed under: Food, Germany, Health, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:37 am

The title of this blog post is a quote from a news article that was published today:

https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/01/25/remembering-the-holocaust-forgetting-the-survivors/

This is the time of the year when you see ads on TV asking for donations for the starving Holocaust survivors in Russia.

The Jews are the richest people in the world; why can’t they take care of their own.

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

Today, many of the world’s remaining 500,000 Holocaust survivors are living out their final years in poverty. Most of those who are suffering either live in Israel, across the former Soviet Union or in greater New York City.

Of the 189,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel, 25 percent live below the poverty line. Of the 60,000 survivors throughout the former Soviet Union (FSU), poverty is endemic — approaching 85-90%. Even in New York City, home to another 60,000 survivors, about half live below the poverty line.

End quote

I have written many times, on my blog, that I think the reason that these Jews have lived such a long life is because they had a meager diet as children; their diet consisted of bread and oatmeal, with very little meat.  I had a similar diet as a child, and I think that this is why I have lived a long life, and I am still in good health.

Leberkäse:The Food of Bavarian Royalty

Filed under: Food, Germany, Health, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 8:19 am

leberkaese liver cheese, German foodI found an interesting article about this German food that you can read here.

Apparently it tastes almost exactly like spam.

Begin quote

Despite my curiosity, I wasn’t feeling confident about ordering the mystery meat so  J.P. (my German husband) offered to order it so that I could try a bite.  When it came out, I told my German companions that I thought it resembled SPAM which was met with blank stares.  “You know the meat that comes out of a can that’s really cheap and popular with university students.”  From the scowls on their faces it was clear that my unflattering comparison of Leberkäse to canned meat wasn’t appreciated.

I cautiously tasted a small bite – yep it tasted exactly like warm SPAM. Warning, if you feel the same way, you might want to keep your comments to yourself, or try one of the German dishes that is actually really good.

here’s the deal on the new memory enhancing drug Prevagen

Filed under: Health, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:49 am

You can read about the new drug, called Prevagen, at http://www.newsmax.com/FastFeatures/prevagen-memory-supplement-risks/2016/07/06/id/737395/

I have been watching the TV ads for Prevagen, which is claimed to improve “short term memory”.

A few days ago, my son bought me a bottle of Prevagen pills, and I tried them. After taking only one of these pills, I was able to recall the names of every President of the USA, starting with Obama and going back to Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was the president in 1933, the year that I was born. I was able to rattle off these names without missing a beat. It was a miracle!

I was overjoyed. My memory had been restored. The next day, I had trouble remembering my own name.

What the ads don’t tell you is that you must keep on taking these pills because they only improve your memory for one day; the next day, you must take another pill.

IOW, you are now hooked on a drug that costs $40 for one small bottle.  Who knows what will happen to you if you keep on taking these pills!

Fortunately, my memory has not been wiped out completely, but I am glad that I threw these pills into the trash after only two days.

The only use for these pills, that I would suggest is that the pills could be used by students who are taking an exam and they need to remember what they have read the night before.

In my younger days, I had an eidetic memory, which means that I could literally remember whole pages in books.  I could see the pages in my mind’s eye. That is gone now, and I have some problems with my memory.
