HOW BAD IS U.S. HEALTH CARE?

Health Care

The Commonwealth Fund focused on care process, access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes, studying 72 indicators within those fields. The 11 countries analyzed were Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition to ranking last or close to last in access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes, the U.S. was found to spend the most money on health care.  continued

Beyond the State of Bondage and Playing with Shadows

One may note bondage, on a trivial, closer to home kind, is readily observed on your (but mostly Their/Corp) controlled computer, exponentially accelerating the Force Feeding of unwanted commercials and videos. No permission needed.

Everyday Reality is a Human Construct

beyond-shadows

At the Zero point, “Consciousness isn’t an add-on. It’s the only thing that was real in the first place.” Sensations, images, feelings, thoughts are entangled modifications of awareness, the result of social and cultural conditioning and accepted systems of education. intensely real for the individual awareness embedded in it. We allow ourselves to be programmed by such systems and would feel naked and vulnerable without them. In the world’s wisdom traditions, this is known as the state of bondage”.  more

REALITY is much, much, much bigger than that.

Image result for a larger reality

A growing awareness of the priority of Zero Point/aka Consciousness, in the broader Yin Yang cycle of gravity and radioactivity (the Big Blink of Now) becomes a wee bit necessary for evolutionary survival and progress to continue. The extremely limited physical reality regards the energy, matter, light dance with their space and time associates, disconnected from the full physical-mental-spiritual spectrum described by the Radius “C” Curvature of all Natural Law (in the 3D version of the equation E=MC2) retains an ever greater choke hold on any system’s increasing complexity – topped with population growth to boot.

Before the Flood – Full Movie | National Geographic

As the facts surge non-stop to the surface from the muddied waters of profit and self-interest (AKA Winston tastes good like a cigarette should) and the dead and destruction are tallied, weighed, and conclusively linked to first cause – might that mandate an extension to the definition of terrorism?  Is business pro-life or against-life? The composit, directly linked, short and long term outcomes, tells the tale of proof. No regulations required, only penalties to fit the crime against life and health, by the business non-entity granted personhood, along side with its decision making associates and accomplices.

National Geographic presents an historical overview, unclouded, with inclusion of the ” Winston tastes good like a cigarette should” business phases.

Understanding Energy Without Which Life Would Not Exist

A more refined view of E=MC2 discloses Light (C) as The Radius of Curvature of All Natural Law, equating to the kinetic energy equivalent of the mass energy of matter
meaning if a differential of energy equal to this quantity exists between the observer and the point which he is observing, the natural laws will be suspended. If the energy differential is in excess of the quantity C, the laws will appear to operate in reverse at that point.

Humanity has long been fascinated with space – with the mysteries it holds, and our ability to explore and unlock them. From ancient astronomers to the foremost innovators of today, we have strived to expand our understanding of the universe by continuing ever-greater pursuits and pushing technological limits.

This timeless endeavor continues across multiple programs and initiatives – including NASA’s development of spacecraft that will allow astronauts to explore regions of space where no human has ever been, such as near-Earth asteroids, neutral gravity zones known as Lagrange points and, eventually, a human mission to Mars.

The Future – Inevitable Fate or Choice? America’s Shadow Amid Signs of Profit and Glory

Hawaiian islands strewn with debris: Where did it come from?

garbage signs of profit and glory

Looking back at the following summation of the past, topped with the immensely powerful forces accelerating current events toward an overall, cumulative, dangerous and unhealthy direction, one may well ask, is enough being done, are we fully aware and informed of what’s at stake ………..??

The overriding tide, the accumulative outcomes have never been this massive, threatening to erode the early and still weak blooms of ‘good’, ‘the promise of progress’, inherent in science and technology. (a study of, and hands on, of an ever larger grasp of reality). A science and technology currently heavily crippled by unacknowledged evidence of the missing third leg on the tripod upon which civilization rests – the spiritual, which is found within the far boundaries of a larger definition of energy, with its past due, missing, immeasurable applications – all necessary criteria for evolutionary progress.

The shadows referred to by Deepak Chopra’s ‘The Real Secret of Donald J. Trump’ (below), would completely dissolve and disappear in the flow and application of advancing energy systems in all phases of our lives.

But the shadows elimination likelihood remains extremely dim within a citizenry kept uninformed and dis-informed.

 “………….…Their humanity and incredible stupidity are extant in this brilliant tapestry of human folly.  What is so gripping is that we who view it are made to feel distinctly uncomfortable, because their shadows and myopia reflect our own. The shadows and myopia arrive as a projection of our political and corporate leaders.  After watching this film we can no longer hide from these shadows.  We are forcibly held to account.  If we do not act now, this film then becomes our story………………”

Are we stupid

Are We Stupid? Climate Change Unhinged.

Our addictive dependence to it (oil and generalized greed throughout the economic system) is what propelled the downward spiral of devastation. The addictive process was enabled because we allowed the environment to become an extension of human egocentric needs and values, an ego-sphere rather than an eco-sphere. In this ego-sphere we consumed mindlessly in the global economy without regard for ecosystem balance or concern about creating inequality, poverty and ecosystem imbalance.  Planetary care is not on this agenda, as the film graphically shows.  We see the old man in the High Arctic watching archival video footage, carefully preserved from 2008.  His stark question to the viewer is: “Why didn’t we stop climate change in 2008 when there was a chance?”

America’s Shadow: The Real Secret of Donald J. Trump

There’s a powerful way to explain the rise of Donald Trump that most commentators have missed entirely or undervalued. The standard line describes Trump as a bizarre anomaly. Beginning as an improbable celebrity candidate, he has defied all the conventional rules of politics, which should have been fatal. Instead Trump has swept all before him on the Republican side. Possessing a “genius” for grabbing the limelight, he continues to dominate the scene in ways no previous politician ever has in modern times–so the conventional view goes.

But in reality Trump isn’t bizarre or anomalous. He stands for something universal, something right before our eyes. It’s an aspect of the human psyche that we feel embarrassed and ashamed of, which makes it our collective secret. Going back a century in the field of depth psychology, the secret side of human nature acquired a special name: the shadow.

The shadow compounds all the dark impulses–hatred, aggression, sadism, selfishness, jealousy, resentment, sexual transgression–that are hidden out of sight. The name originated with Carl Jung, but its basic origin came from Freud’s insight that our psyches are dualistic, sharply divided between the conscious and unconscious. The rise of civilization is a tribute to how well we obey our conscious mind and suppress our unconscious side. But what hides in the shadows will out………… more

The Hydrogen Economy (1975 – not published in USA): Dr. Bockris states it quite clearly:”……. the separation of science and engineering from economics, and then from politics and sociology, is not possible. The questions to which this gives rise are very wide indeed. The International Corporations are the essence and the bastions of capitalism.  But they are geared to short-term considerations of profitability.  Will it be possible for them to work to develop an energy economy with considerations fifteen, twenty five or fifty years ahead? Is it possible for a corporation to hold back the maximization of yearly profit so that it can exist healthily one to two generations ahead? Would any shareholder ever vote to reduce their income, or even to avoid it, for a future generation? Capital is invested in the present technology.  Will its owners bring obsolescence to that technology, and so devalue their capital for the sake of long term environmental considerations? What of the effect of these concepts on the likelihood of the funding of new bases to the energy economy which do not use the machinery in which the capital is invested? Is massive research funding of new energy sources in the U.S. economy, which is so accountable to, and so affected by, corporate thinking, conceivable?

What advice would you give your younger self?

Reminders that are still useful at any age……………………………………….

Product Hunt  

Cindy Gallop: Don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks.

Know that the only one who can make things happen for you is you. And don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks about what you want to do — just go do it and make it happen. — Cindy Gallop, Co-founder & CEO, MakeLoveNotPorn

Peter Shankman: Take care of yourself

There won’t ever be a startup as important as you are. If you’re not taking care of yourself first, you’ll never amount to greatness. Seriously. If you take anything away from what I said here today, make it that, ok? — Peter Shankman, CEO, The Geek Factory, Inc.

 Tony Hsieh: Be unapologetically true to yourself.

Be unapologetically true to yourself (both in business and in life), and if you are constantly broadcasting who you are (the real you, the inner you) to the world, over time your people will find you. — Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos

Steve Kamb: Eventually never happens.

Eventually never happens. If you want to travel, start saving now. If you want to do something, start immediately. You don’t need to wait until you’re better at it, or until you’re more confident, or until the “timing is right.” You need to start and learn and fall and adapt and adjust. That’s where the growth happens. —Steve Kamb, Owner, Nerd Fitness

Tracy Chou: Be Intentional About Who You’re Spending Time With

Keep working hard, but to be intentional about the time you’re spending on work versus play and who you’re spending time with. On the last point — someone recently gave me a useful framework to consider the people you interact with: 1s are people you love being with, that give you energy, that make you excited about life. 3s are people that just take and never give, they drain you. 2s are in between. Only spend time with 1s. —Tracy Chou, Software engineer at Pinterest

 Ryan Leslie: Nurture relationships.

Stay grounded, meet as many people as possible, and nurture relationships — they are the most valuable resource. — Ryan Leslie, Singer, songwriter, rapper, and entrepreneur

Eoghan McCabe: Be real, and people will want to be around you.

Focus on what you’re passionate about. Be real, and real people will want to be around you and work with and for you. Work hard and enjoy every day. Success and great things will follow. —Eoghan McCabe, CEO and Co-founder of Intercom

 Michael Skolnik: Invest in friendships.

I would tell myself to really invest in friendships. Show up for important events — weddings, birth of children, death of parents. Get on a plane, get in the car, get on the train, and just show up. — Michael Skolnik, CEO of SOZE

Matt Mullenweg: Be okay with things building up over time.

Be okay with things building up over time. Something I didn’t appreciate until recently is that there any many productive decades ahead with which to build the things that I feel need to exist in the world. One of the best things I did then was avoid any press or capitalization on my age (to the extent I could) because youth is an ephemeral asset and just a novelty in business. — Matt Mullenweg, Founder of WordPress, Automattic, Jetpack, and Audrey Capital

Chase Jarvis: Start meditating.

Start meditating. It makes everything better. — Chase Jarvis, Maniac Photographer, Director & CEO of CreativeLive

Kathryn Minshew: “No” is often just the starting point.

The best piece of advice I ever received was that “no” is often just the starting point, and most careers worth having involve a fair amount of determination, grit, and just general “try try again”-ing. — Kathryn Minshew, Founder & CEO, The Muse
