A Chance Is A Terrible Thing To Waste. (Grow To Love)

by Jeremy Michaels


A woman convinced that all men are the same is subconsciously admitting that as a woman, she hasn’t grown or changed. Not every man is perfect, and not every woman is a saint, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any good ones out there. A large part of who you are is reflected in the company you keep and the people you CHOOSE to date. Be mindful of that. When you grow, mature, and start experiencing more of life, your opinions change, your definition of real evolves. Trust issues are insecurities and they start with you. If you don’t trust your heart, your ability to judge character and your decisions, you’ll always blame others for your mistakes, disappointments, heartbreaks and pain. Life immediately gets better when it stops being all about you. Selfish people suffer and their ways create unnecessary pain.

Everybody claims to be so hurt from their past but nobody is strong enough to let it go. It’s like people want you to know they were hurt before more than they want to be healed. Most people don’t get that if you hold on to the wrong things for too long, it’ll only hold you back and weigh you down. And ultimately keep the good ones away. It’s crazy that people are so stuck in the past that they’ll settle for old pain and the same headaches before they risk starting something new. It’s like you automatically start off in the negative, no matter how positive, genuine, or consistent you are.

A chance is a terrible thing to waste. Don’t get so caught up in playing it safe that you miss out on something special. You have to be willing to take a risk, you have to be willing to step outside of your comfort zone with relationships like you do with any other area in life. Waiting around for the perfect timing is the same thing as wasting time. There is no perfect time, there is no magic carpet that will take you to happily every after. You can’t let fear keep you frustrated. You’ll never fly if you’re scared to fall. Your peace is bigger than your pain, your mission is bigger than your mistakes and your happiness is bigger than your hurt.

Too many hurt women playing victim, not enough willing to admit that they volunteered for the pain. If they show you their hand at the beginning of the game and you still decide to play, then you’ve decided to play yourself. Always playing the victim is such an insult to the truth. Don’t expect the “type” to change, be woman enough to grow and change your preference.

We need more builders, more people equipped to fix things. Too many people approach love like its disposable. Anybody can throw something away or walk out but only a rare few can fix a good thing and turn it into something great. Love is for forgivers. Love is for lovers. Love is for you. Love is for me. Love is for everyone. Grow to love.

SALT, explained.

by Jeremy Michaels

We all know what regular white salt looks like and we mistakenly think it’s real salt when it is not. The fact is that refined white salt, such as commercial table salt is bad, very bad stuff. Unrefined natural salt such as sea salt on the other hand is very good, providing many health benefits.

Sodium (salt) is an essential mineral your body needs for maintaining levels of fluids and for providing channels for nerve signaling. In other words, salt is needed in your body to regulate fluids and blood pressure, and to keep your muscles and nerves running smoothly.

Without appropriate amounts of sodium, your body may have a difficult time cooling down after exercising or any activity. When the body is hot, you sweat. If you do not have enough sodium, your body may not sweat as much and you may then become overheated. This could result in a stroke and/or dehydration.

Sodium is also an energy carrier. It’s responsible for sending messages from the brain to muscles through the nervous system so that muscles move on command. When you want to move your arm or contract any muscle in your body, your brain sends a message to a sodium molecule that passes it to a potassium molecule and then back to a sodium molecule until it gets to its final destination and the muscle contracts. This is known as the sodium potassium exchange. Therefore, without sodium and other important supporting minerals, you would never be able to move any part of your body.

Now let’s talk the bad refined white salt we all know. The blood pressure raising effect of table salt is due to its high content of sodium with not enough magnesium to balance it. This has a magnesium lowering effect that can constrict the arteries and raise blood pressure. Real salt (unrefined of various kinds) contains plenty of magnesium and other important minerals, which is why it does not affect blood pressure in a negative way whatsoever.

It’s important to make the distinction between unrefined salt and refined salt…


  • It’s the fine white salt we all know that’s available at almost any restaurant or grocery store. 
  • Has been bleached to give it the white appearance that we are accustomed to seeing salt.
  • Has absolutely no minerals in it.
  • Has been exposed to many toxic chemicals such as aluminum, ferrocyanide and bleach.
  • Raises your blood pressure, clogs arteries and contributes in cardiovascular disease, fluid retention, osteoporosis, heart failure and kidney problems.


  • Examples are: Himalayan sea salt, Celtic sea salt, other natural sea salts.
  • Contains the natural minerals that are originally part of it. The most common minerals that you will find in sea salt (or unrefined salt) are iron, magnesium, potassium, iodine, calcium, manganese, zinc, phosphorus, vanadium, copper, tin, gallium, boron, and many more.
  • Contains less than 98% sodium and chloride than refined salt.
  • Has not been put through a chemical process, nor been exposed to harmful chemicals of any kind.
  • The colors of unrefined salt can vary depending on where it’s from. Some sea salts are a pinkish color, while others come in different shades of gray. The color of the salt largely depends on where the salt was obtained from, as different oceans will produce a different color.
  • Provides all the benefits of sodium with balancing minerals that supply the body with over 90 trace elements needed to maintain and sustain health.

Furthermore, here the HEALTH BENEFITS OF SEA SALT (unrefined salt):

  • Good for your heart and helps regulate blood. Elevates the pH balance in your blood and balances blood pressure.
  • Good for your brain. Sea salt is essential in helping to preserve electrolyte levels so that the brain can communicate better with the rest of the body. In addition, it helps to remove harmful acids that settle around the brain. Therefore sea salt can help to prevent memory loss and mental illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Builds up immune system. It naturally helps to build up the immune system so that you can avoid common ailments, such as the common cold, allergies and asthma. Sea salt also reduces inflammation.
  • Helps with digestion. Sea salt helps create enough digestive fluids so that it can properly digest the foods you eat and also helps you to absorb more nutrients from food. It also nourishes the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut, which in return helps to fight against candida, parasites and other viral or fungal infections.
  • Good for kidneys. Since sea salt helps to carry away excess acids in the body, it can essentially help to prevent and even dissolve kidney stones.
  • Prevents muscle spasms. Sea salt contains potassium, which is necessary for regulating muscle movements. It helps the body to absorb more potassium and other nutrients from other food sources so when the muscles receive proper nutrients, then they can function properly.
  • Prevents osteoporosis. Because sea salt has an alkaline effect on the body, it can help to preserve other minerals in the bones.
  • Good for your teeth. Due to the minerals found in sea salt, maintaining strong healthy teeth that heal is likely. To take advantage of this, simply rinse your mouth thoroughly with salt water everyday.
  • Helps with weight loss. Sea salt helps to prevent a buildup along the intestinal wall, which eventually can lead to constipation and other digestive problems. Thus you can prevent unwanted weight gain, and even lose weight just by adding sea salt to your diet.
  • Helps with diabetes. Sea salt is very beneficial for those who suffer from diabetes, as it helps to reduce the need for insulin by helping to maintain the sugar levels.
  • Maintains fluid levels. Sea salt helps to prevent dehydration.
  • Good for curing depression. Not only does it contain traces of lithium and other essential minerals that help to relax the nervous system, it also helps to maintain levels of serotonin and melatonin, which also aids in keeping the body rested and relaxed.
  • Good for curing your sore throat. Gargling with sea salt with warm water can help to relieve the pain of coughs due to dryness or the common cold.
  • Controls drool. Drooling while sleeping is a sign of sodium and water deficiency. When the body lacks those 2 needs, the saliva glands produce more saliva in order to help with chewing, swallowing and digestion of foods.
  • Helps cure skin disorders. A sea salt bath can help to clear up the skin and nurture it back to health. It removes dead skin cells, and draws toxins out to the surface of the skin, and at the same time it restores vital nutrients back into the skin. It has been effective in treating disorders such as dry skin, eczema and psoriasis.
  • Helps sore and aching muscles. A sea salt bath is effective for soothing sore and aching muscles by improving the circulation.
  • Helps arthritis. A hot bath with sea salt is also very effective in relieving the pain and swelling associated with arthritis. In addition, sea salt can help to improve the circulatory functions as well as organ functions.

Inspire to Inspire. (Today I’ve Reached 100,000 Views)

by Jeremy Michaels


I’ve been inspired to inspire now more than ever. I’m no perfect angel. However, I’m no devil. I’ve learned that life is a journey we take day by day. The moment we forget about actually LIVING in the moment, is the moment we’ve lost forever. When I have random thoughts, I try to do my best to send them out across messages in my writing. I’m still trying to figure out why 100,000+ people would be interested in what a young man has to say but I’ve learned sometimes people just want to better themselves and get inspired to inspire.

We as humans help in ways that we may not realize but our goal should be to nurture mankind. Everyone needs a smile to survive.  Everyone needs a hug when they feel alone. Everyone needs a joke when they feel like crying. Everyone needs to become better day by day. Everyone needs! Unfortunately, we as a people have somewhat strayed away from reaching out to those who truly need us.

A simple wink may warm someone’s heart while a thoughtful text message may encourage someone who is in doubt. At the end of the day, I can sleep good at night knowing that I’ve touched at least one person who needed me. I’ve taken to writing to inspire and to nurture.  I have my thoughts, lessons and wisdom tips and you have your understanding of them. Sometimes I’ll make you laugh, other times you’ll cry. And sometimes my words will make you shake your head or roll your eyes. But I’m confident most times I’ll open your eyes and brain and change your perspective. And maybe sometimes you’ll hate me for the truth but once you look back at my words and purpose, you’ll most likely love me for who I am. This is me. Raw, unedited, non-scripted words. I’m no Dr. Phil, I’m no philosopher, coach, nor a professional speaker or teacher, I’m just me, Jeremy. A person of love and support who betters himself and wants to better others. I hope my words of wisdom is well received and I hope my blogs are inspiring and eye-opening. I learn from you as well and I am very humbled by your presence. Everyday I shout out to my mistakes and failures because it gave me wisdom, knowledge and experience. But starting today I’m going to acknowledge my lovers and supporters. Thank you.

My prayer is that anyone reading this would be INSPIRED to INSPIRE because when it’s all said and done, inspiration is the key to greatness. If no one inspires, who will be inspired?

Communicate or Live A Lie of Pride.

by Jeremy Michaels

Don’t get so caught up wondering about unnecessary things that you stop focusing on the important matters. The truth is always harder to see than it is to feel. There’s no need to go looking for the “right” in something your intuition tells you is “wrong.” Have confidence in what you feel. If you don’t trust your feelings, you can’t expect anybody else to believe them. Act when you can because some things you just can’t leave to chance. Assuming you have time is the same as wasting it. Don’t wait so long to speak up to somebody that the only place they care to hear you out is in your dreams. Wishing on a star gets tiring after awhile. Nobody wants to waste time restless and frustrated waiting on something that may never come. If you have something to say, speak up while the person still cares to listen. One of the craziest things to assume is that everybody else is on your time. Don’t play yourself believing that. You don’t want to live a life lying about how you feel just because your pride won’t allow you to say what’s real. The worst realizations are the ones you’re forced to come to after the window of opportunity has already passed. Be smart, be daring, and be confident, the last regrets you want to have are those that come from a fear of trying. It’s always better to ask and know than it is to wonder and regret not having the courage to ask. 

Top 10 Negative Effects of Using Cosmetics and Make-up Daily.

by Jeremy Michaels

Foundation, toner, bronzer, kaajal, eyeliner, eyebrow pencil, eye-shadow, blusher, lipstick, lip-gloss, powder, fragrances, deodorant, nail polish, hairspray, shampoo, etc. If you are in the habit of putting on these every single day, you are definitely an obsessive cosmetics user!

Of course, they make you look pretty, make you smell good, make you feel good, make you look younger, but not forever. Too much of a good thing can turn very nasty in the long run.


Cosmetics today contain a wide range of harmful chemicals which, if used in excess, slowly damage our skin and body until it is too late to mend.

The average woman exposes her skin to over 100 different chemicals everyday in the form of make-up and beautification products. Dangerous chemicals like sodium sulphates, phthalates, parabens, triclosan and various reactive acids present in most popular cosmetic products today are absorbed by the skin into the bloodstream and lead to numerous lingering side effects, some of which are known to have serious repercussions for the user’s general health.

The following are the top 10 negative effects of using cosmetics and make-up daily:

1 – Increases the chance of getting cancer. If nothing else can make you control the use of cosmetics, this definitely will.The most deadly reason to minimize the use of cosmetics is to protect yourself from cancer risks, in other words, almost certain death. A majority of chemical cosmetics available in the  market today contain toxic ingredients that can cause multiple kinds of cancer – breast cancer, skin cancer and blood cancer. Fragrances containing phthalates, synthetic shampoos and deodorant sprays and nail polish contaminated with benzene in particular can be the causes of the worst kinds of cancer. And the worst part is, since companies try their best to make these products look as innocent as possible, and because of the lack of consumer awareness regarding their toxicity, people hardly suspect them to be the cause of their health troubles, until it is too late.

2 – Breathing Disorders. Chemically reactive beauty products not only ruin your physical appearance and cause painful allergies, they can go so far as to interfere with your respiratory system, causing serious breathing disorders. For example, salicylates and lead-containing lipsticks can lead to breathing difficulties that are similar to asthmatic attacks. Even the harmless bubble bath you buy can be a potential cause of respiratory disorders, especially if it contains the foaming agent “alkylarylsulphonate”. What is the use of beautification if it can result in us being unable to breathe properly? So it only makes sense to be extremely careful while choosing the cosmetics we purchase and limiting their use altogether!

3 – Damage To Our Reproductive Systems. The allergy-causing parabens present in cosmetics have been proven by medical research to be toxic to the reproductive cells. Butyl paraben in particular was linked to DNA damage in men’s sperm, according to a study that compared the levels of this compound to several reproductive measures in men. If the DNA of reproductive cells are damaged, it can lead to a terribly adverse impact on reproduction processes and reproductive hormones. Since women are the dominant consumers of cosmetics, these toxic chemicals tend to put them at even greater risk. Skincare products and deodorants have been linked to some very complicated reproductive irregularities, which could even lead to infertility and I am sure you don’t want that to happen to yourself. So stop wondering and just be careful. Don’t overdo your make-up. And again, most importantly don’t use make-up and beauty products everyday!

4 – Disruption of Thyroid Systems. Damaging chemicals in cosmetics over a long period of time, can wreak havoc with your endocrine system, particularly the thyroid gland. A example is Triclosan, which is a chemical used to keep many of your skin care products germ free. It is commonly found in deodorant sprays, make-up, and acne-removing scrubs. Absorption and accumulation of triclosan and compounds within your body due to daily cosmetic application has an extremely detrimental effect on the thyroid gland, leading to severe after-effects of the thyroid hormone. Sudden headaches, shivering bouts, depression and weight gain are some of the consequences resulting from the inflammation of the thyroid gland.

5 – Allergic Reactions. A large percentage of health problems from cosmetics involve allergies. Commonly used chemicals contained in make-up products can produce allergic reactions in the skin, eyes and hair, especially if used in excessive amounts. Parabens, (examples – ethyl-paraben, butyl-paraben, isopropyl-paraben etc.) which are chemicals used as preservatives to prevent bacterial growth in cosmetics, have been reported to cause allergic reactions including various kinds of skin irritation, blotches and blemishes on the skin. A lasting infection caused by the use of certain fragrances is photosensitization, in which the perfume reacts with sunlight to create brown patches on the skin. Salicylate sensitivity is another reason for increased allergic reactions including the outbreak of painful rashes or hives among sensitive users to products containing the chemical as one of the ingredient. Sadly, very few cosmetics in the market are completely free of salycilates.

6 – Itching and Skin Disorders. A number of oil-based skin foundations clog pores on your facial skin, leading to scary acne outbreaks and skin disorders. Blushers and bronzers contain ingredients which can lead to pimples, lead patches and long term skin irritation all over the affected areas. Salicylates found in a number of pain relief lotions and skin care creams can lead to severe itching especially among those who are sensitive to the chemical. And the next time you think about buying that new anti-aging cream, remember to collect thorough information about the ingredients, quality and side-effects as a number of poor quality skin care products contain chemicals which temporarily may present you with a youthful glow, but in the long run lead to premature aging of your skin. Sodium lauryl sulphate, a popular ingredient used by most of the modern cosmetic brands, is known to reduce the protective barrier of the skin by at least 10%, increasing the skin’s susceptibility to irritation by a host of chemicals. Heavy metals and ammonia in hair dyes can lead to abrasions in the skin and scalp, follicle damage and hair loss.

7 – Skin Discoloration. A number of cosmetics, like creams, skin toners, sunscreens and blushers can have bleaching and/or darkening effects on the skin, especially if the products are of inferior quality. Poor quality cosmetics when used without regulation can lead to marked discoloration of skin, including patches, redness, brown to gray pigmentation, blotches and unevenness. You surely don’t want your face to become dotted with brown, flecked with grey and look as red as if you’ve been pinched all over, then you would do well to use these synthetic skin care products as little as possible. Also it’s extremely important to use these products only while they are well within their date of expiry. 

8 – Potential Eye Infections. Use of excessive make-up on and around the eyes can lead to serious infections, accompanied by redness, watery eyes and stinging sensations. Applying too many coats of eye shadow creates considerable damage as the glittery dust which makes your eyes shine also slips through the corners and ends of the eyelids to cause redness and itching. Too much mascara can lead to the stopping of eyelash growth or falling of eyelashes. Mascara also attracts bacteria for breeding, as a result causing severe eye irritation. Same goes for too much kaajal and eyeliner. Our eyes are one of the most important and sensitive organs of our body and it would be a shame if we damage them in our attempts to beautify them.

9 – Depression. Numerous of studies link cosmetic use with depression and mood swings. They claim that women who tend to wear heavy make-up including foundations, toners, lipstick, blushers and dark mascaras tend to feel more gloomy and depressed more often than those who use minimal or no make-up. Triclosan, parabens and other damaging chemicals in skincare products and perfumes disrupt and lead to hormonal imbalances. Such negative feelings leads to loss of concentration, determination and optimistic outlook, which can have adverse effects on one’s professional, social and personal lives. So if you want to be happy, throw out those countless tubes of creams, wrinkle lifts and hair colors that make your appearance and happiness temporary.

10 – Headaches. There is a scientifically proven relationship between the chemicals in your beauty products and headaches. Thick coats of make-up, especially on the face and forehead increases the chance of migraine attacks which may even lead to dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Harsh chemicals interfere with the skin and underlying muscles, triggering headaches, weakness and fatigue. So if you are getting headaches at odd hours for which you haven’t been able to pinpoint the cause, then ask yourself how much make-up and perfume you’ve been wearing lately, and try going through a week without them. You’ll definitely find your headaches reduced or gone.


So now that you’re informed, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Make-up, cosmetics, grooming products, beautification and body products can be little devils in disguise.

Here is a list of alternatives I strongly suggest:

  • Go natural more often!
  • Switch to natural remedies like preparing pastes from fruits, vegetables, medicinal herbs, eating healthy and drinking plenty of water.
  • Get your body products, make-up and cosmetics natural and organic free from the harmful chemicals explained. Remember that all these products are synthetic and not natural. Stay away from most of these big corporation brands.
  • In all your products, beware and look for the following chemicals: parabens, sodium sulphates, phthalates, sodium benzoate, triclosan, methylisothiazolinone, acrylates, salicylates, butlene glycol, zirconium, tartrazine, nickel sulphate, potassium bromate, coloring dyes such as red#40, yellow #20, etc, aluminum, nitrosamines, octinoxate, propylene glycol, oxybenzone, etc.

Communication, Effort & Understanding.

by Jeremy Michaels


In order for a relationship or any bond to work successfully it needs communication, effort, and understanding. You have to know how to meet somebody half way and compromise. My way or the highway is the lonely way. Don’t ever get so comfortable that you start allowing what’s convenient to replace putting forth effort. Taking the “when it happens, it happens” approach can really disappoint you when “it” never happens how you wanted it too. If your heart wants a successful love in the future then you have to leave your pride in the past. Don’t cheat the progress of your relationships now based on what failed before. Don’t get so hung up on what failed in previous situations that you can’t see what’s working in your current situation. If you want somebody’s time, love, or attention you’re going to be required to earn it and prove that you deserve to keep it. Different doesn’t always mean better, but if you never try something new, you’ll always have the same old complaints. Communicate when you have problems and put effort forth to solving them. Understand that everybody shows the way they care in their own unique way. Accept that what you’re used to may be different from what they know how to do. Everybody communicates and responds to problems differently, so don’t automatically assume you’re on or off the same page. Talk things out and deal with the situation at hand. And you shouldn’t have to bring up the past to prove a point. People will make mistakes and they will make bad decisions. You just have to decide what you can and cannot deal with. If you don’t want to communicate, then you’ll welcome assumptions. If you don’t put in effort, then you’ll welcome distractions. If you’re not understanding, then you’ll welcome unnecessary frustrations. Focus on what’s important, solve problems when they’re relevant, don’t dwell, and move on with love without holding back.

The Fukushima Blog.

by Jeremy Michaels

On March 11, 2011, Japan got hit with a 9.0 earthquake that caused a tsunami. This was a catastrophic tragedy event and the worst earthquake in decades. Japan’s prime minister described this as Japan’s worst crisis since WW2. The official death toll was 15,883.

I know everyone remembers this day…

But something happened on that day that continues to haunt us… the world… civilizations… planet earth…


The massive earthquake and following tsunami damaged Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear Power plant. The plant suffered major damage that caused nuclear meltdowns, hydrogen explosions, electrical fires and most importantly radiation leakage. The incident permanently damaged several reactors making them impossible to restart and disabled the reactor cooling systems, leading to releases of radioactivity and immediately triggering a 30 km evacuation zone surrounding the plant. The Japanese government declared the 30 km evacuation zone a no-go area. To this day, it’s still a no-go area.

Since 2011, reports continue to flood in showing that radiation from the damaged closed down restricted plant is still causing major environmental damage all over the world. In Japan, radiation has been detected in Toyko’s soil, tap water, vegetable and corn crops and milk all throughout the country.

Particularly on the West Coast of the United States, a multitude of strange animal deaths, high radiation readings and other recent anomalies shows that the radiation has reached North America. As reported, literally millions of tons of radioactive debris had begun traveling across the Pacific Ocean, and some of it had already impacted Hawaii and now starting to impact the west coast of the U.S., mainly California.

Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean, according to Tepco and nuclear experts. That means that the total amount of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in our food chain.

Ultimately, all of this nuclear radiation will outlive all of us by a very wide margin. They’re saying that it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster, and meanwhile countless innocent people will develop cancer and other health problems as a result of exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation. We are talking about a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is constantly getting worse.

The following are some of the signs that the entire North America is now being absolutely fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima…

–  Polar bears, seals and walruses along the Alaska coastline are suffering from fur loss and open sores. Wildlife experts are studying whether fur loss and open sores detected in nine polar bears in recent weeks is widespread and related to similar incidents among seals and walruses. The bears were among 33 spotted near Barrow, Alaska, during routine survey work along the Arctic coastline. Tests showed they had “alopecia, or loss of fur, and other skin lesions,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement.

– There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline. At island rookeries off the Southern California coast, 45% of the pups born in June have died, said Sharon Melin, a wildlife biologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service based in Seattle, Washington. Normally, less than one-third of the pups would die. It’s gotten so bad in the past two weeks that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared an “unusual mortality event.”

– Along the Pacific coast of Canada and the Alaska coastline, the population of sockeye salmon is at a historic low because they’re all slowly dying.

– Wildlife biologist discovered fish all along the west coast of Canada bleeding from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.

– A vast field of radioactive debris from Fukushima that is approximately the size of California has crossed the Pacific Ocean and is starting to collide with the west coast. People describe the debris as a “big dark log in the water”.

– It’s being projected that the radioactivity of coastal waters off the U.S. west coast could doubleover the next five to six years.

– Experts have found very high levels of cesium-137 in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the west coast.

– One test in California found that 15 out of 15 bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.

– Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada…
• 73 percent of mackerel tested
• 91 percent of the halibut
• 92 percent of the sardines
• 93 percent of the tuna and eel
• 94 percent of the cod and anchovies
• 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish

– Canadian authorities are finding extremely high levels of nuclear radiation in certain fish samples. Some fish samples tested to date have had very high levels of radiation: one sea bass sample collected in July, for example, had 1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.

– BBC News recently reported that radiation levels around Fukushima are “18 times higher” than previously believed.

– An EU-funded study concluded that Fukushima released up to 210 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 into the atmosphere.

– Atmospheric radiation from Fukushima reached the west coast of the United States within a few days back in March 2011.

– At this point, 300 tons of contaminated water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.

– A senior researcher of marine chemistry at the Japan Meteorological Agency’s Meteorological Research Institute says that “30 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and 30 billion becquerels of radioactive strontium” are being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.

– According to Tepco, a total of somewhere between 20 trillion and 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.

– According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single day.

– It has been estimated that up to 100 times as much nuclear radiation has been released into the ocean from Fukushima than was released during the entire Chernobyl disaster.

– One recent study concluded that a very large plume of cesium-137 from the Fukushima disaster will start flowing into U.S. coastal waters early next year. Ocean simulations showed that the plume of radioactive cesium-137 released by the Fukushima disaster in 2011 could begin flowing into U.S. coastal waters starting in early 2014 and peak in 2016.

– It has been projected that the nuclear radiation leakage will affect the United States food industry years to come, contaminating the food and the water supply.

– The immense amounts of nuclear radiation getting into the water in the Pacific Ocean has caused environmental activist Joe Martino to issue the following warning… “Your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.”

– “The California coastline is becoming like a dead zone. If you haven’t been to a California beach lately, you probably don’t know that the rocks are unnaturally CLEAN – there’s hardly any kelp, barnacles, sea urchins, etc. anymore and the tide pools are similarly eerily devoid of crabs, snails and other scurrying signs of life.” said California reporter.

– A study conducted last year came to the conclusion that radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster could negatively affect human life along the west coast of North America from Mexico to Alaska “for decades”. Radiation = cancer.

– According to the Wall Street Journal and other media organizations, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete.

– “Another Japan earthquake at or near this Fukushima nuclear power plant will decimate Japan and lead to U.S. west Coast, Canada, Eastern Russia evacuation.” says numerous of experts and scientists.

The 1 Relationship Mistake You Don’t Know You’re Making.

by Jeremy Michaels

Often, we enter into relationships with the thought of having better love, or companionship, or thoughts that life will simply become better because of the relationship. The nature of man is selfishness and we forget that we can’t numb our pain, hurt, or disappointment through a relationship. If we learn to seek real friendships over forceful relationships, we will be able to build a true love.

Sadly, many of us don’t know how to have true friendships or understand the power of having a friendship before love. Friendship has levels and we must learn these levels so we can have clarity of where we are with people in the process of getting to know them. We must embrace the beauty of friendship and take time to get to know people before we can love. Friendship requires the same devotion and commitment that any relationship does.

Friendship is the place that we develop the necessary environment to build a strong and thriving relationship a place in which we learn to focus on the other person rather than ourselves. We must always be asking ourselves, what do I bring to his/her life? We must always be exactly what we are expecting from another.

Here are 4 levels of friendship before entering a serious relationship:

1 – Acquaintance. This is the lowest form of friendship. You don’t really know each other that well but you associate somewhat with the person and have had limited contact. We all have plenty of people who fall into this category. Nothing is wrong with being acquainted with people. We have to also stop being so rude and closed off to people. None of us are better than someone else. God sees us all as equals.

2 – Casual friend. At this second level of friendship we usually share common interest and activities. You spend more time together, but you are not connecting on deep emotional levels. You simply enjoy shared quality time and common interest. Seek to learn more about a person at this level.

3 – Close friends. Okay now we are getting to more depth at this level. This means you have mutual life goals, values and you can speak into each others life. You trust each other and got lots of love for each other. By this time you know more about the each other’s shared goals, views, and character. At this level, you develop real fellowship and closeness to lead you past this level. At this point you can provide help and advice to each other, as well as really being there for each other.

4 – Intimate friends. Here you are devoted to helping each other grow and develop character. You consider each other family. You are likely committed to each other and there to make each other’s life better. This is more than friends but less than lovers. You are deeply concerned about the character of each other and devoted to helping each other become better people and really involved in each other’s life.

After you progress through these 4 levels of friendship then you can consider a relationship that will be based on true and real reasons. By the time you reach the last level you should know the good and bad about that someone. You will know their flaws and imperfections, you will know whether they’re the one for you or not, you will know who they really are and who you really are to them. You will be able to make a healthy choice to be with them or not without making purely emotional or lustful decisions.
