What Are The Odds? Karina Pasian The Mini Alicia Keys


Today as I was looking through my YouTube subscriptions I stumbled upon the song "Slow Motion" sang by Karina. Found it quite interesting so I went googled-up the lad's background and guess what I discovered? Karina Pasian has been idolizing Alicia since she was like, four and with the constant support from her family she's been groomed into the form of another Alicia, the mini version! Apparently, they have so much in common.

The Source says: 

Even before 16-year-old Karina Pasian signed to Def Jam records, the stellar singer was already making a name for herself. From her winning performance on Star Search in 2003 to singing at the White House last June during Black Music Month, this New York City chanteuse has been paying her professional dues since she was a toddler.

"I’ve been singing and playing piano since I was three," says Karina. "My babysitter had a piano, and she started teaching me how to play. It wasn’t until a year later that I began getting professional lessons." While some have been quick to compare Karina Pasian to other performers including Aaliyah, Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey, one listen to her self-assured debut disc is evidence enough that she is destined for success.

Karina remembers the first time she sang in front of an audience. "I sang Céline Dion’s 'My Heart Will Go On' at a talent show. I was kind of nervous, but the audience loved it."

From that point, there was no denying that music would be her life. A few years later, after using the Prince-penned ballad "How Come U Don't Call" for an audition, Karina Pasian was cast on a revamped version of Star Search. "That was such a wonderful experience," says Karina, who won the first round of the competition with a rousing version of the Jackson Five classic "I’ll Be There."

Working with an array of songwriters, producers and artists that include The Dream, Tricky Stewart, Gordon Chambers, Chris Brown, Carlos McKinnney, Lil Mama and others, Karina proves to be a breath of fresh soul. "I’ve recorded over 70 songs in the last two years," Karina says. "It was a period of real growth for me as I learned to focus and stay consistent."

Karina Pasian's godfather, famed producer and businessman Quincy Jones, has also been a guardian angel for the young singer. In addition to giving her advice, the maestro included her in the “We Are the Future" charity concert in 2006. Considering the talents Jones has worked with, from Frank Sinatra and Sarah Vaughan to Michael Jackson and Tamia, she is in good company. "I know I’m blessed to have someone like Quincy in my corner," she says.

A fan who embraces all forms of music, from the stylish pop of Brandy to old school jazz greats, Karina performed the standard "Misty" when she was at the White House last year. "Emilio Estefan, who has been a friend of my family for years, helped to put the show together, and invited me to be a part of it," says Karina. "Later, my brother told me that I was the first Dominican to play at the White House, and that made me very proud." Studying music and voice at High School for the Professional Performing Arts, the Washington Heights native was more than prepared for any challenges that arose in the studio. "I was blessed to have some pretty amazing teachers who prepared me well," she says sweetly. Refusing to fall into any cliché, Karina Pasian has recorded an album that is a reflection of her age and independent point of view.

Karina Pasian's song "Sixteen" is a song of independence and admiration. "Ain’t no daddy's where I'm from, its just mad mothers…why am I disrespected by someone I should call brother," she sings in a pristine voice. "I wanted to do a song about what teenager girls go through in urban areas. It’s not cool that boys think they’re being cute when they say nasty stuff to us on the street." Written and produced by The Dream and Tricky Stewart, best known for their work with Rihanna’s "Umbrella" and Madonna's "Me Against the Music," the song "Sixteen" reminds one of vintage Brill Building girls like the Crystals or Little Eva with an electro-groove.

Another Tricky Stewart and The Dream track that will leave fans breathless is "Baby Baby," an uptempo song that is destined to be a dance floor scorcher. "Though this is a fun song, it’s not just a party song,” says Karina "It's about guys who simply see young women as sex objects, but I refuse to be that girl." Indeed, like Aretha Franklin, she simply wants some respect. Sharing the mic with rapper Lil Mama ("Lip Gloss" & "Shawty Get Loose"), the two young stars connected in the studio. "Lil Mama was so cool, but it was her confidence in the booth that was really exciting."

Produced and written by Carlos McKinney, the sing-songy "Can't Find the Words" embraces elements of jazz and pop while simultaneously creating a whimsical track that sounds like nothing else of the radio. Additionally, Karina's favorite song "Winner," which highlights her elegant piano (her light touch on the keyboard reminds one of Erroll Garner) playing, is laid-back and uplifting.

A beautiful young woman with more musical moxy than most sixteen year olds, Karina Pasian has constructed one of the finest debut discs in years. Melancholic and truthful, funky and real, blissful and bold, Karina’s album is the sound of a better tomorrow.

A Special Dedication To All My Loving Friends

Here is a song I liked very much and it carries simple meaning about unconditional love. For those of you who's been there for me when I needed a friend and have cared about me regardless, this is my dedication for you. Thank you very much!

I have customized the translation of the song to fit my story. Sorry if it lacks accuracy from the original meaning. I'm not Chinese-literated btw so.

Song: 真的愛妳 (Truly Loving You)
by Beyond

無法可修飾的一對手 帶出溫暖永遠在背後
縱使囉囌始終關注 不動珍惜太內咎
Your unceasingly warm loving arms
Always back me with courage
Apparently your constant nagging represents your care,
Regrettable had I not treasured

沉醉於音階她不讚賞 母親的愛卻永未退讓
決心衝開心中掙扎 親恩終可報答
Although you disagree with what I do
You never cease to show me supports
Breaking through the inner struggles
Would I return your lovingkindness

春風化雨暖透我的心 一生眷顧無言地送贈
The spring breeze has swiftly warmed my heart
Forever silent and charitable

是妳多麼溫馨的目光 教我堅毅望著前路
It's your warm glances that has
Taught me to always look firmly ahead,
And never give up when I stumble and fall

沒法解釋怎可報盡親恩 愛意寬大是無限
Indescribable how great is your love
So vast and unconditional
Please allow me to utter "I truly love you"

無法可修飾的一對手 帶出溫暖永遠在背後
縱使囉囌始終關注 不動珍惜太內咎
Your unceasingly warm loving arms
Always back me with courage
Apparently your constant nagging represents your care,
Regrettably I did not treasure

仍記起溫馨的一對手 始終給我照顧未變樣
理想今天終於等到 分享光輝盼做到
And I still remember your gentle hands
That has given me constant loving care
When the time comes and my dreams come true.
I wish I could share my joy with you

Swine Flu Is Not The Biggest Danger, The Vaccines Are!

Reported by Mike Adams from

Mandatory vaccines or a shot to the head!

Let's not beat around the bush on this issue. The swine flu vaccines now being prepared for mass injection into infants, children, teens and adults have never been tested and won't be tested before the injections begin. In Europe, where flu vaccines are typically tested on hundreds (or thousands) of people before being unleashed on the masses, the European Medicines Agency is allowing companies to skip the testing process entirely.

And yet, amazingly, people are lining up to take the vaccine, absent any safety testing whatsoever. When the National Institutes of Health in the U.S. announced a swine flu vaccine trial beginning in early August, it was inundated with phone calls and emails from people desperate to play the role of human guinea pigs. The power of fear to herd sheeple into vaccine injections is simply amazing...

Back in Europe, of course, everybody gets to be a guinea pig since no testing will be done on the vaccine at all. Even worse, the European vaccines will be using adjuvants - chemicals used to multiply the potency of the active ingredients in vaccines.

Notably, there is absolutely no safety data on the use of adjuvants in infants and expectant mothers -- the two groups being most aggressively targeted by the swine flu vaccine pushers. The leads us to the disturbing conclusion that the swine flu vaccine could be a modern medical disaster. It's untested and un-tried. Its ingredients are potentially quite dangerous, and the adjuvants being used in the European vaccines are suspected of causing neurological disorders.

Paralyzed by vaccines
I probably don't need to remind you that in 1976, a failed swine flu vaccine caused irreparable damage to the nervous systems of hundreds of people, paralyzing many. Medical doctors gave the problem a name, of course, to make it sound like they knew what they were talking about: Guillain-Barre syndrome. (Notably, they never called it "Toxic Vaccine Syndrome" because that would be too informative.)

But the fact remains that doctors never knew how the vaccines caused these severe problems, and if the same event played out today, all the doctors and vaccine pushers would undoubtedly deny any link between the vaccines and paralysis altogether. (That's what's happening today with the debate over vaccines and autism: Complete denial.)

In fact, there are a whole lot of things you'll never be told by health authorities about the upcoming swine flu vaccine. For your amusement, I've written down the ten most obvious ones and published them below.

Ten things you're not supposed to know about the swine flu vaccine
(At least, not by anyone in authority...)

1. The vaccine production was "rushed" and the vaccine has never been tested on humans. Do you like to play guinea pig for Big Pharma? If so, line up for your swine flu vaccine this fall...

2. Swine flu vaccines contain dangerous adjuvants that cause an inflammatory response in the body. This is why they are suspected of causing autism and other neurological disorders.

3. The swine flu vaccine could actually increase your risk of death from swine flu by altering (or suppressing) your immune system response. There is zero evidence that even seasonal flu shots offer any meaningful protection for people who take the jabs. Vaccines are the snake oil of modern medicine.

4. Doctors still don't know why the 1976 swine flu vaccines paralyzed so many people. And that means they really have no clue whether the upcoming vaccine might cause the same devastating side effects. (And they're not testing it, either...)

5. Even if the swine flu vaccine kills you, the drug companies aren't responsible. The U.S. government has granted drug companies complete immunity against vaccine product liability. Thanks to that blanket immunity, drug companies have no incentive to make safe vaccines, because they only get paid based on quantity, not safety (zero liability).

6. No swine flu vaccine works as well as vitamin D to protect you from influenza. That's an inconvenient scientific fact that the U.S. government, the FDA and Big Pharma hope the people never realize.

7. Even if the swine flu vaccine actually works, mathematically speaking if everyone else around you gets the vaccine, you don't need one! (Because it can't spread through the population you hang with.) So even if you believe in the vaccine, all you need to do is encourage your friends to go get vaccinated...

8. Drug companies are making billions of dollars from the production of swine flu vaccines. That money comes out of your pocket -- even if you don't get the jab -- because it's all paid by the taxpayers.

9. When people start dying in larger numbers from the swine flu, rest assured that many of them will be the very people who got the swine flu vaccine. Doctors will explain this away with their typical Big Pharma logic: "The number saved is far greater than the number lost." Of course, the number "saved" is entirely fictional... imaginary... and exists only in their own warped heads.

10. The swine flu vaccine centers that will crop up all over the world in the coming months aren't completely useless: They will provide an easy way to identify large groups of really stupid people. (Too bad there isn't some sort of blue dye that we could tag 'em with for future reference...)

The lottery, they say, is a tax on people who can't do math. Similarly, flu vaccines are a tax on people who don't understand health.

If You Never Failed, You Never Lived

We all know what needs to be changed. Many of us come home from work every night frustrated because of it. We don't lack insight, we just lack the courage to do something about it!

But real leaders are different. They'd rather risk criticism and experience failure on the way to success, than remain silent and die on the sidelines. That's what gives others courage to follow them! Most folks have a dream they long to fulfill. They just need somebody to take the first step to show them the way. You can be that somebody!

Without courage we simply accumulate a collection of good ideas and regrets. Most of our missed opportunities would not have been missed had we only been willing to push through our fear and embrace what could be.

All of us feel fear, but here's the difference. Eventually a true leader's need for progress overwhelms his reluctance to take a risk. He can live more easily with the prospects of having tried and failed, than not having tried at all. He knows that failure is an inevitable part of success. He also realises that failure looks and feels completely different in the rear-view mirror than it does when it is staring at you through the windshield. The truth is, while the average person fears stepping out into a new opportunity, the true leader fears missing out on it.

Almost every success stories began with utter failures. Check out this thought provoking short clip. Pick up courage and you shall see breakthroughs in your life!

Ten Steps to Awaken Your Financial Genius

After completing the book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki, plus a little extra initiative, you should be able to catch what's really important in order to achieve financial independence. According to the author, here are ten steps to awaken the financial genius in you.

1. Find a reason greater than reality, a big dream. Think of the freedom, the lifestyle wherein you control your own time. Think of what you don't want, i.e. "I don't like being an employee".

2. Use the power of choice, daily. You can choose to watch MTV, or watch CNBC. It's how you choose to use your time and energy everyday that brings financial success in the long run.

3. Choose your friends carefully. It pays to have friends who are focused and achieving their goals. Surround yourself with friends you can learn from.

4. Master a formula. Learn a new one, and learn fast.

5. Pay yourself first. Practice self-discipline by keeping expenses low. Tenants can pay for your expenses if you rent out apartments or mini-storage, for instance. Savings are used for investing and creating more money, not for paying bills.

6. Pay your broker well. Attorneys, accountants, stockbrokers, and real estate brokers will have more incentive to work harder for you. If they make more money, it means you make more money as well. 3-7% is a good incentive.

7. Be an Indian giver. It's the concept behind ROI. (Return on investment) Invest and then take the initial money out after a time when the investment has earned for you.

8. Buy luxuries last. Let the income from your growing assets afford you the new car. Wait for your asset base to grow first. Middle class people buy luxuries first, on credit.

9. Find yourself a hero. When you play golf you can imagine you are Tiger Woods. When you do business, you can ask yourself, "What would George Soros have done if he was in my place right now?"

10. Teach and you shall receive. As in money, love, or friendship. If you give without expecting anything in return, you receive more.

To-Do List

1. Stop what you're doing. Take a step back to assess your situation. Stop doing what is not working and look for a new option.

2. Look for new ideas.

3. Take action. Find someone who has done what you want to do. Take them to lunch. Ask for tips.

4. Take classes and buy tapes.

5. Make lots of offers. Finding a good business deal is a lot like dating. You must go to the market and talk to a lot of people, make offers, counteroffers, negotiate, accept and reject. Many single people sit at home waiting for the phone to ring instead of going out and hitting the dating scene.

6. Take a walk through your neighborhood and look for bargain real estate deals.

7. Buy the pie and cut it into pieces. People buy only what they can afford so they think small. Think big. This goes for land and other investments.

8. Learn from history. Colonel Sanders lost everything in his 60's and started from scratch with a fried chicken recipe. Bill Gates became rich before he was 30.

Work To Learn, Dont Work For Money

Lesson 5: The Rich Invent Money

Self-confidence coupled with high financial IQ can certainly earn more for you than merely saving a little bit every month. Make good use of your time and find the best deals. An example: In the early 90's the Phoenix economy was bad. Homes once valued at $100,000 sold for $75,000. Kiyosaki shopped at bankruptcy courts and bought the same houses at only $20,000. He resold these properties for $60,000 making a cool $40,000 profit. After six more transactions of the same manner he made a total $190,000 in profit and it only took 30 hours of work time.

Rich Dad explains there are Two Types of Investors:

1. Buyers of Packaged Investments.
This is when you call a retail outlet, real estate company, stockbroker or financial planner and put your money in ready-made investments. It's a simple, clean way of investing.

2. The Professional Investor
Design your own investment. Assemble a deal and put together different components of an opportunity. Rich dad encourages this type.

You need to develop three main skills to be this type of investor, namely how to:
* Identify an opportunity everyone else has missed.
* Raise capital
* Organize smart people

Identify an opportunity everyone else has missed. Learn to identify hidden Freebies in business deals. For example: The real business of McDonald's isn't hamburgers. It's the free real estate underneath each franchise, on every important intersection, in cities all over the world that is the real wealth of its owners. THERE IS ALWAYS RISK. You need to learn how to manage risk and not avoid it.

Lesson 6: Work to Learn, Don't Work for Money

The Author's Odyssey After college graduation Robert Kiyosaki joined the Marine Corps. He learned to fly for the love of it. He also learned to lead troops, an important part of management training. His next move was to join Xerox where he learned to overcome his fear of rejection. The thought of knocking on doors and selling copiers terrified him. Soon he was among the top 5 salespeople at the company. For a couple of years he was No.1. Having achieved his objective, overcoming his shyness and fear, he quit and began minding his own business. Learn skills like PR, marketing, and advertising.

Take a second job if it means learning more. A Difference in Education Schools train professionals. Professionals become so specialized they cannot apply themselves in other fields and need to form unions to protect their jobs. Remember you can have a profession, say, learn to be a pilot if you want to learn how to fly, but at the same time mind your own business. The rich "groom" the next generation by training the heir in all aspects of running the business. They move him from department to department so he learns how each one relates to the other. Specialization is not the key here, but picking up important lessons from each area and seeing the business as a whole.

Rich Dad groomed Kiyosaki and Mike in the same manner. Mike would later take over Rich Dad's empire, which included restaurants, convenience stores, and a construction company. Kiyosaki created his own empire with real estate, new products and educational materials.

Five Obstacles to Financial Independence

1. Fear.
Don't play it safe and cling to what you think is secure. If you don't go for it and think big you won't be able to earn big.

2. Cynicism.
Don't listen to advice of others who are not doing what you intend to do. Listen to your self and those who are doing what you aim to do.

3. Laziness.
Greed is good and fights laziness. Think about the freedom and money you'll have and you will put in those extra work hours. Change your thinking. Instead of saying "I can't afford it." Ask yourself "How can I afford it?" Challenge your mind to create solutions.

4. Bad Habits.
Spending habits should turn into saving and investing habits.

5. Arrogance.
Don't think you know everything there is to know about money. Listen to others. Enroll in useful seminars.

Keep Your Day Job But Start Minding Your Own Business

Lesson 3: Mind Your Own Business

Kiyosaki sold photocopiers on commission at Xerox. With his earnings he purchased real estate. In 3 years' time his real estate income was far greater than his earnings at Xerox. He then left the company to mind his own business full time. He knew that in order to get out of the rat race fast, he needed to work harder, sell more copiers and mind his own business. Don't spend all your wages. Build a good portfolio of assets and you can spend later when these assets bring you greater income.

Lesson 4: The History of Taxes and the Power of Corporations

Income tax has been levied on citizens in England since 1874. In the United States it was introduced in 1913. Since then what was initially a plan to tax only the rich eventually "trickled down" to the middle class and the poor. The rich have a secret weapon to shelter themselves from heavy taxation. It's called the Corporation. It isn't a building with the company name and logo in brass signage out front. A corporation is simply a legal document in your attorney's file cabinet duly registered under a government state agency. Corporations offer great tax advantages and protection from lawsuits. It's the legal way to protect your wealth, and the rich have been using it for generations. Do your own research and find out what tax laws will bring you the best advantages.


Rich dad says paying yourself first forces you to create more sources of income to cover your expenses. It's a simple rule that works like this:

The Rich with Corporations - Earn, Spend, Pay Taxes

People who work for corporations - Earn, Pay Taxes, Spend

Key Financial IQ Components:

It helps to take some courses to gain financial literacy. Rich dad stresses the importance of learning –

1. Accounting. It pays to know how to read financial statements. When acquiring businesses or assets you need to quickly see the financial standing of the company you are acquiring. Many grown adults do not know how to balance a balance sheet. In the long term, this knowledge will pay off for you and your business.

2. Investment Strategy. This skill will sharpen with experience. Talk to investors and observe how they play the game. Kiyosaki and Mike spent many boyhood hours sitting in on Rich Dad's meetings with brokers, accountants, and attorneys.

3. Market Behavior. Know the laws of Supply and Demand. No business owner can do without understanding these basic principles of the market. Bill Gates saw what people needed. Open your eyes to opportunities. Look at what sells and who buys.

4. Law. Kiyosaki recommends doing everything you can to grow your business within legal boundaries. Know your corporate, state, and accounting laws.

School Makes You Good Employees, But Financial Literacy Makes You Good Employers

The content of this amazing book by Robert T. Kiyosaki is truly astounding. After reading the book, it changes my perspective about money and career for good, something you probably never learn in school. Here is the essence worth a few minutes of your life checking...

The Big Idea


A true tale of two dads: one a highly educated professor, the other, an eighth grade dropout. Educated dad left his family with nothing, except maybe some unpaid bills. The dropout later became one of Hawaii's richest men and left his son an empire. One dad would say, "I can't afford it" while the other, asked, "How can I afford it?"

Rich dad teaches two boys priceless lessons on money, by making them learn through experience. The most important lesson of all is How to Use Your Mind and Time to create personal wealth. Free yourself from the proverbial "rat race". Learn to spot opportunities, create solutions and "mind your own business". Learn to make money work for you, and not be its slave.

Rich Dad's Words of Wisdom:

* You are what you think.
* A job is a short-term solution to a long-term problem.
* A highly paid slave is still a slave.
* Why climb the corporate ladder when you can own the ladder?

Good Thinking:
Two roads diverged in a wood,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost, from "The Road Not Taken"


There is a Need.

The rationale for teaching people financial literacy comes from the fact there is no real job security these days. Even after years of toil, the poor and middle class may find they do not have sufficient funds for their children's college education, or their own retirement. Why work for a corporation, the government, and the bank all your life? Awaken your financial genius and gain financial independence and freedom!

Lesson 1: The Rich Don't Work For Money

At age 9, Robert Kiyosaki and his best friend Mike asked Mike's father (Rich Dad) to teach them how to make money. After 3 weeks of dusting cans in one of Rich Dad's convenience stores at 10 cents a week, Kiyosaki was ready to quit. Rich Dad pointed out this is exactly what his employees sounded like. Some people quit a job because it doesn't pay well. Others see it as an opportunity to learn something new.

Next Rich Dad put the two boys to work, this time for nothing. Doing this forced them to think up a source of income, a business scheme. The opportunity came to them upon noticing discarded comic books in the store. The first business plan was hatched. The boys opened a comic book library and employed Mike's sister at $1 a week to mind it. Soon they were earning $9.50 a week without having to physically run the library, while kids read as much comics as they could in two
hours after school for only a few cents.

Lesson 2: Why Teach Financial Literacy?

They don't teach this in school.

The growing gap between rich and poor is rooted in the antiquated educational system. The system trains people to be good employees, and not employers. The obsolete school system also fails to provide young people with basic financial skills rich people use to grow their wealth. Know your options and use this knowledge to build a formidable asset column. In an age of instant millionaires it really isn't about how much money you make, it's about how much you keep, and how many generations you can keep it.

Steps to get out of the proverbial rat race:

1. First, understand the difference between an asset and a liability.

~ Real Estate
~ Stocks
~ Bonds
~ Notes

~ Mortgages
~ Consumer Loans
~ Credit Cards

Intellectual Property

The poor have day-to-day expenses, the middle class purchase liabilities that they think are assets (i.e., a home or a car), and the rich build a solid base of income-generating assets. The middle class finds itself in a constant state of financial struggle. Their primary income is wages, as wages increase, so do their taxes. Expenses increase as wages increase. Hence the phrase "the rat race." They treat their home as their primary asset instead of investing in income-generating assets.

The rich get richer because they keep acquiring more assets and investments to generate more income, which far exceeds their expenses.

Reasons why the home is not an asset but a liability:
1. People work almost all their lives to pay off a home (30-year loans)
2. Maintenance and utilities expenses.
3. Property tax
4. House values can depreciate.
5. Instead of investing in income-earning assets, your money goes out to
payments for the house.

Your losses:
1. Time that could have been used to grow value in other assets.
2. Capital which could have been invested rather than paying home-related
3. Education that makes you a Sophisticated investor.

If you want to buy a house, first generate the cash flow by acquiring assets, which bring income to pay for it.

Examples of real assets are:
* Apartments for rent
* Real estate
* Businesses that do not require your physical presence. You hire managers.

Average time of holding on to an asset before selling it for a higher value:
1 year
* Stocks (Start-ups and small companies are good investments)
* Bonds
* Mutual funds

The No.1 Killer In A Pandemic: Ignorance of Natural Cure

Stay Alive

Hopefully what you've noticed in all this is a very important pattern: If you stay informed, you will stay alive!

The No. 1 killer of people in the next great pandemic will be, without question, ignorance of natural medicine. Those who don't know about these natural anti-virals will literally die of ignorance, while those who understand the incredible healing power of Mother Nature's medicine are far more likely to survive.

But it's about more than survival: It's also about independence. When you use natural medicine to boost your defenses, you are no longer dependent on doctors, hospitals and conventional medicine to provide you with medicine. So instead of being a victim to the military medical establishment (because the military will be involved in the distribution of vaccines, trust me...), you can instead remain independent and self-reliant.

It is this self-reliance that scares the power mongers who run our world. The last thing they want is citizens taking charge of their own health and refusing to function as slaves to Big Pharma.

I hope you found this report informative and valuable. Stay informed and you'll stay alive during the next pandemic.

Nothing mentioned in this report has been scientifically proven to protect humans from H1N1 Influenza A. Then again, neither has Tamiflu or any vaccine in the world. In fact, nothing in this report will ever be proven effective against any particular viral strain, because doing so would immediately cause these products to be considered "drugs" by the FDA, thereby restricting them from public purchase.

The criminally-operated FDA, of course, continues to insist that all plants are biochemically inert! Any food, plant or natural medicine that has any biological effect whatsoever on the human body is considered illegal by the FDA, and such products are confiscated while the companies that produce them are destroyed by the FDA.

Thus, you won't see the companies mentioned in this report talking about how effective their products are against influenza. That's because they dare not tell you the truth without risking being run out of business by the FDA.

Final Destination (Roller Coaster Crash Scene) Re-enactment In RollerCoaster Tycoon 3

A while ago, I remember watching the infamous sequel of Final Destination and got myself into awful nightmares after. Spine-chilling scenes with eerie background ambient soaked your brain in fear because you could possibly presume what happened next and who's gonna be killed. Then you had the urge to loo but did not have the courage to leave your warm cosy couch to reach the switch to the dim-lit washroom.

That was history. The thrill of playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 and eventually the more realistic 3D version of Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 empowers me! RAWWWRRRRR!!!

In real life, there wasn't any extreme park in my country to date. The most I had was some lame-ass corkscrews in GH which loops-da-loops like a toy train. To satisfy my vanity, I tried to scream my ass off while hanging in mid-air but somehow my ignorance amuses me. My friend who sat next to me in the coaster actually read Harry Potter during the ride. As crazy as it sound, I actually had fun creating suicidal rides and torturing guests to their death in the virtual game! Muahahahahah!! *wicked laugh* Keeping me sane for a while.

To which this video gave me the inspiration.

Wow! I even heard people are inspired to make new horror film after playing this game. You should prolly try it and be the next horror movie producer yo!

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 will also feature new gameplay elements that fans have been asking for - including diversity of guests, added group behavior and improved guest AI - and many other new features which build upon the fun and addictive nature of the original game.

Hardware Requirements
Pentium III 733 MHz Processor; 128 MB RAM; 250 MB hard drive space; 32MB video card (Such as nVidia GeForce2 or any ATI Radeon)

Just found out the long-awaited sequel FD4 is releasing August 2009. After months of rumors, arguments and unbelievable anticipation, the official trailer for Final Destination 4 debuted on the 4th June. Some of us lost hope. Others threatened to break into Newline Cinema. But the rest, ever so patiently-waited, and from that came the massively anticipated FD4 trailer in all it's glory.

And it doesn't disappoint...

A Special Post To My Redefined Best Friend

A Special Dedication To Zoey K.

Hey there,

Glad to have "found" what I have once lost. A best friend. That is you! I didn't even know you have a facebook account until I saw it from another friend's. Because I knew you suck at ICT. No offense and not too sure if the word "found" is appropriate here because you probably don't wanna be found by me. I forgive you. After all these years of your disappearing, I have no idea where the hell you have been or what craps you have gone thru', but I'm pretty sure there ain't little shits in between. Oh ya! you just informed me you were married! Otherwise makes me think you have either been raptured or caged in a cell. Come to think about it, that was quite scary ok!

Guess life kicks in many lovely (or awful) surprises for the both of us. And I wish you well regardless. No matter where you are. What you're doing. Who you are (I know you're Zoe, but you know, people change and hence the "y"), What you've done...let bygones be bygones, and me not crying over spilt milk anymore. I wish you happy always! :)

I don't know if you still remember the day when we did a duet together in school way back then. It was all crappy amateurish and shit. You played the keyboard and I sang the song in front of many people. It was a pretty awkward situation but we managed to nail it in the end. I know I suck. Thanks to your perseverance!

Wish I could play that beautiful piece on a Clavinova for ya. Too bad I'm not really in the mood right now and I think you can apparently play it better than me. So enjoy this video for now :)

All that I am, all that I have
I lay them down before you, oh Lord
All my regrets, all my acclaims
The joy and the pain, I'm making them yours

Lord, I offer my life to you
Everything I've been through
Use it for your glory
Lord I offer my days to you
Lifting my praise to you
As a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer you my life

Things in the past, things yet unseen
Wishes and dreams that are yet to come true
All of my heart, alll of my praise
My heart and my hands are lifted to you

Lord, I offer my life to you
Everything I've been through
Use it for your glory
Lord I offer my days to you
Lifting my praise to you
As a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer you my life

What can we give
That you have not given?
And what do we have
That is not already yours?
All we possess
Are these lives we're living
That's what we give to you, Lord

Thanks for your time! If you're free (and not being restrained from coming online) do drop by my page to say hi. Don't worry! You are still the best! Good luck in everything~! :)

More Anti-viral Cure For Protection During A Pandemic

More Anti-Virals

Honorable mention anti-virals

In addition to the top five I've already mentioned on the previous post, there are other antiviral products and nutrients worth mentioning:

• Nascent Iodine - ( - Offers additional protection against infectious disease while supporting your thyroid gland.

• Amazon Herbs - The Amazon Herb Company's numerous products from the Amazon rainforest are also, in their own ways, powerful anti-virals. Even their Zamu juice is a good choice (as it contains Sangre de Drago) for protection against infectious disease. Cat's Claw (Una de Gato) is also a powerful antiviral, and it's available in numerous Amazon Herb products.

• Probiotics - Virtually all probiotics will boost your defenses against infectious disease. Scientific research has even shown that probiotics directly reduce the risk of contracting H1N1 swine flu. You can find probiotics at your local health food store. Read more here:

• Wildcrafted oregano oil - ( or ( - This is a phenomenal wildcrafted oil with too many health benefits to mention here. It's extremely useful as a first aid product, too, and can help your body heal more quickly. (It's also known to be very useful for topically treating spider bites and insect bites.)

A related product, also available from, is called OregaRESP (, which is an extremely potent encapsulated form of oregano oil. (Just open this bottle and inhale, you'll be floored!)

The Top Five Natural Anti-viral Medicines

Top Five Anti-Virals

Anti-Viral #1 - Super ViraGon

My favorite liquid anti-viral product remains Jon Barron's Super ViraGon - a potent combination of garlic, olive leaf extract (a powerful anti-viral!), onion, ginger, zinc and other nutrients. I keep this in my own emergency supply of natural medicine.

It's available from for a very fair price (order five for the best discount).

Anti-Viral #2 - Fitura PowerImmune

The PowerImmune anti-viral tincture offered by Fitura ( combines organic Echinacea, Cat's Claw, Shiitake Mushroom, Olive Leaf and many other ingredients (all organic). This is another "medicine chest" product I keep in good supply. It's also good to travel with. I personally take a dropper full of this product each time I board an airplane.

Living in Ecuador, this is also a "first aid" product I keep with me in the Valley of Longevity. Of course, if a pandemic were to strike, I would just go to my garden and eat all the natural anti-virals located there, but if I'm caught traveling -- or I need an extra boost of herbal concentrates, PowerImmune is one of my top choices.

Anti-Viral #3 - Lomatium Dissectum

This product is the "secret" anti-influenza herb that very few people know about, even in the natural health industry. The root of the Lomatium is perhaps Mother Nature's "perfect" anti-influenza herb because its anti-viral action is combined with a respiratory clearing action that's especially useful for dealing with the secondary infections caused by many strains of influenza.

The indigenous American Indians grew Lomatium and used it as medicine. If you live in the American Southwest (or other dry, hot climates), you can probably grow this medicine, too. It might be one of the best investments you can make in your own health defense, because herbs that are growing in your yard are always more potent than herbs found in bottles.

If you can't grow it, of course, you'll need to buy it. Here's one recommendation of an existing Lomatium tincture:

Nature's Answer has a 1-ounce tincture that's available at for a ridiculously good price ( This product will probably be wiped out of inventory shortly after this special report goes public, so get some of this quickly if you want it in your natural medicine chest.

Anti-Viral #4 - HerbPharm Virattack Compound

Speaking of Lomatium, HerbPharm offers an herbal tincture that combines it with St. John's Wort (also a powerful anti-viral), lemon balm, olive leaf and other powerful anti-viral herbs.

This is a superb combination. It's really, really powerful in defending against influenza infections. Vitacost offers it at nearly half off the retail price.

I definitely recommend getting some of this. You might also wish to check your local health food stores to see what they have in stock. During a pandemic, I can practically guarantee you won't be able to find any of these medicines, because people will engage in "panic buying" of these natural anti-virals. It's smart to have a few on hand now, before the next pandemic strikes.

Anti-Viral #5 - Olive Leaf Extract

One taste of real olive life extract and you'll be convinced: This is powerful stuff! The best-known phytochemical in olive leaves is oleuropein, a very potent antimicrobial medicine that also has natural anti-viral properties.

Your best value on a standardized extract, in supplement form, is the NSI brand from VitaCost ( I personally like the liquids better (, but the taste is a big turn off for most consumers. If you're not into chugging really bizarre-tasting liquids, go with the capsules instead.

Ideally, your best way to have this medicine nearby is to grow your own olive trees. To make the medicine, just gather leaves from the trees, wash them, add them to a large container of water and boil it into a concentrate. This liquid can be consumed internally or used topically. Seek the direction of a naturopathic physician, of course, before consuming this internally, and be especially cautious if you are pregnant.

The shelf life of most of these natural medicine products is about 1-2 years. That can be roughly doubled by refrigerating the products (highly recommended).

Five Anti-viral Products That Can Save Your Life

Natural Anti-Virals

Now let's get to the good news. The good news is that natural medicine can save your life. If a pandemic strikes, Tamiflu supplies will be tightly controlled. Unless you're an emergency worker or a health care worker, your chances of ever being given Tamiflu are rather slim. Vaccines, of course, will be utterly useless once the influenza virus mutates, so even receiving a vaccine shot offers no protection other than what's available through the placebo effect.

This leaves natural medicine and the world of anti-viral plants.

Due to the mass brainwashing of the public by pro-Pharma health authorities, most people have no awareness whatsoever of the fact that plants manufacture their own anti-viral medicines.

In fact, there's no such thing as a plant that does not contain anti-viral medicine. EVERY plant on our planet manufactures at least one anti-viral medicine in its own cells.

Did you ever wonder why? It's because plants are under constant attack by viruses, too. And if they don't create their own internal mechanisms for dealing with viruses, they will not survive.

This is especially true with plant roots, which are immersed in soil that's rich with both bacteria and viruses. If those roots do not possess anti-viral and anti-bacterial defenses, they will quickly be consumed and destroyed, killing the plant.

Thus, in virtually all plants, the manufacture of anti-viral medicines is the most natural thing in the world. It happens from day one of the plant sprouting, and it continues through the entire life of the plant.

Simply eating grass (or better yet, juicing grass) is, all by itself, an empowered act of medical self treatment. Grass contains anti-viral compounds, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and hundreds of other health-enhancing phytochemicals. (Don't juice grass treated with pesticides, obviously.)

There are other plants, of course, with far greater anti-viral potential than grass. I merely mention this to point out the utter simplicity of finding and consuming anti-viral medicine: If you have a lawn, you have a pharmacy in your yard! (Even better if you have dandelions and other "weeds.")

Wild foods offer the strongest anti-viral medicine. That's a whole different area of expertise, of course, and if you want to learn more about wild foods, I have two sources to suggest:

• Peter Ragnar -

• Daniel Vitalis - (his website is currently sparse, but look for upcoming announcements on seminars and teleconference events from Daniel Vitalis)

Two More Things That Can Kill You In An Infectious Disease Outbreak

More Deadly Things

#4 Thing that can kill you: Lack of vitamin D

Virtually everyone living in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. is chronically deficient in Vitamin D. Those living in Australia are usually better off, as there's more of a sunshine culture there, but even Aussies can find themselves vitamin D deficient if they live their lives indoors and don't venture into the real world to catch some healthy rays.

Vitamin D deficiency is, without question, one of the primary causes of influenza susceptibility. Having sufficient vitamin D circulating in your blood is one of the best defenses against infection.

Health authorities in the U.S. and other western nations are currently engaged in a campaign to keep the population vitamin D deficient. This is achieved by brainwashing people into thinking sunlight alone causes skin cancer. That's a big medical lie, of course. Even the Journal of the National Cancer Institute has published scientific research showing that sunlight exposure reduces the risk of skin cancer.

The American Cancer Society, of course, spreads extremely dangerous disinformation about sunlight exposure, seeking to make sure that no ray of sun ever touches the skin of any person. This "darkness" campaign will soon be exposed as a death sentence for the People as the next pandemic takes the lives of those stupid enough to believe that moderate sunlight exposure is bad for their health.

In the next great pandemic, when the hospital beds are overflowing with the dead, and school gymnasiums are taken over as holding cells for the constant stream of incoming body bags, the dead will consist almost entirely of those who believed the lies of the American Cancer Society and the disinformation of the FDA and Big Pharma. This is one case in which misplaced faith in a corporate-controlled medical monstrosity can literally cost you your life.

Click here for a picture from the 1918 Spanish Flu that may give you some idea of what to expect during the next great pandemic.

(What's missing from this photo, of course, are the armed military personnel, toting automatic rifles, who will shoot any infected person who attempts to escape the facility.)

#5: Thing that can kill you: Antacid drugs like Prilosec, Nexium and Prevacid

In a pandemic, use of these popular antacid drugs can actually lead to your death. How? A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) concludes that these PPI drugs significantly increase the risk of deadly pneumonia.

Read the full story here.

These acid-suppressing medications, it turns out, are linked to a 30 percent increase in the risk of acquired pneumonia. And if you're suffering from something like the swine flu, pneumonia is the most common cause of death. It's the secondary bacterial infections, after all, that killed most people in 1918, and that's what's likely to cause the greatest number of fatalities in the next great pandemic as well.

If you want to protect yourself from influenza, avoid taking antacid drugs (including over-the-counter antacids).

The Five Things That May Kill You In An Influenza Outbreak

Things That Can Kill You

#1 Thing that can kill you: Arsenic

As revealed in a recent story on NaturalNews, drinking well water contaminated with arsenic greatly increases susceptibility to H1N1 influenza infections. Arsenic is present in the water supply of tens of millions of people across the United States right now (now to mention the citizens of Canada, the UK, Australia and other countries). Low levels of arsenic are even "approved" by the EPA!

#2 Thing that can kill you: Antibiotics

Taking antibiotics before a swine flu infection greatly increases your risk of being killed by swine flu. How do we know that? Because antibiotics wipe out the friendly flora that have been scientifically proven to boost the body's defenses against influenza.

This is why, during any pandemic, doctors must exercise extreme caution when handing out antibiotics. While antibiotics can be extremely helpful during the pneumonia phase of a viral infection (when bacteria invade the lungs), they can be deadly if given to patients too soon (during the pre-pneumonia phase).

In addition, there's the whole concern over antibiotics abuse creating yet more dangerous superbugs in hospitals. Imagine the combination assault of a deadly new strain of the H1N1 influenza virus plus an antibiotic-resistant superbug sweeping through the hospitals of the world...

That's a very dangerous combination indeed!

#3 Thing that can kill you: Lack of sleep

Getting fewer than six hours of sleep each night increases your risk of contracting colds (such as influenza) by a whopping 300 percent! Proofs.

Eight hours of sleep each night will substantially boost your immune function, giving you the metabolic tools you need to fight off potentially deadly influenza infections.

Why Health Authorities Want To Dumb You Down And Keep You Uninformed

Dumbing Down

What the pro-pharma health authorities are really seeking is mandatory ignorance of herbs, foods and natural medicine. They want to cleanse the minds of the public from any knowledge of medicinal herbs. This "information cleansing" is much like ethnic cleansing -- except they don't kill you directly; they just wait for the influenza virus to kill you instead.

In the next great pandemic (which might only be months away), people will die from ignorance. They will die from misplaced trust in western medicine and government health authorities. They will die while waiting for that dose of Tamiflu that never arrives, even after receiving that Big Pharma influenza vaccine shot that doesn't work.

People will die even while the very herbs that could save them are growing in their own back yards. Mere meters away from their death beds, Mother Nature is quietly manufacturing the natural antiviral medicines that can save lives and end suffering. Yet the FDA and the health industry trade groups have sought to disconnect people from the plants of the Earth; to dissuade people from growing their own medicine, and to strike fear into the minds of those who dare take responsibility for their own health (or survival).

As the editor of NaturalNews, I stand against that ignorance, against the chemical profit agenda of Big Pharma and against the vaccine profits reaped by drug companies at the expense of taxpayers.

I stand in favor of personal health freedom and personal responsibility; for connection with the astounding biodiversity found in our natural environment; for the embracing of natural medicine created by Mother Nature; and for the nutritional education of the People.

In the rest of this special report, you'll find two lists: First, five things that CAUSE susceptibility to influenza infections, followed by the FIVE products I recommend as a defense against swine flu.

Why Modern Medicine Will Fail Us In The Next Great Pandemic

Big Pharma Profits

Knowledge of natural anti-viral products is, of course, a huge threat to the profits of Big Pharma - an industry that just received a whopping one billion dollars to make useless swine flu vaccines.

When I say "useless," I mean that quite seriously. Vaccines are only useful against the specific viral strain that was available at the time of their manufacture. But influenza viruses mutate quickly, and as the WHO has already said, the real concern with H1N1 swine flu is that it will combine with seasonal flu in the Fall, creating a new, deadly strain that will of course be immune to all available vaccines.

Antiviral herbs suffer from no such limitations. Because they contain literally thousands of different medicinal compounds, they are able to attack viruses with a full spectrum of synergistic natural medicines. Thus, even mutating viruses find themselves unable to escape the multifaceted medicinal cocktail of antiviral plants.

That's why this special report lists the top five anti-viral products I currently recommend. I have no financial relationships with any of these companies, nor do I earn any profits from the sale of these products. These are 100% independent recommendations offered under the Free Speech protections of the United States Constitution. I will not remove this article, and I will not be intimidated by health authorities wishing to see this information censored. The People have a right to know about natural medicine, and NaturalNews will continue to bring you this information regardless of the false authorities who attempt to deny the People the right to know this kind of information.

What FDA Don't Want You To Know



This is a special report the FDA doesn't want you to read. In fact, this is the story that the corporate "leaders" of the natural health products industry don't want you to read, either. Why? Because they've all been hijacked by Big Pharma interests, and they no longer represent real natural medicine like the kind revealed in this story.

Read more about this consumer betrayal by the natural products industry leaders here.

When it comes to H1N1 influenza (Swine Flu), all the "authority" institutions in America agree on one thing: Keep the American people ignorant! Don't allow people to learn the truth about the anti-viral properties of herbs, superfoods and dietary supplements.

Knowledge is a dangerous thing. It gives people options. It allows people to be independent from the government and independent from the medical system. It gives people control over their own lives, and in a police state society that seeks to dominate the health decisions of every citizen, giving people control over their own lives simply cannot be tolerated.

That's why this article will be blasted as "irresponsible" by health authorities. It will be portrayed as "dangerous" by pharmaceutical pushers. If the FDA could ban this website, this article would be precisely the kind of content they would target for censorship.

And what's so dangerous about this article? It dares to advocate specific anti-viral products as protection against the H1N1 swine flu.

Who's The Boss?

So here is a little story about life.

One day, all the parts of the human body got into an argument about who was the most important.

The brain said "I control all thought processes, and without me the body would be a big slab of meat."

The heart said "Suck it bitch, I provide blood for all parts of the body, and without blood and oxygen, you would die."

The legs and arms said "Well without us, you couldn't walk or pick things up. Plus the hands have opposable thumbs. That is badass."

Then the stomach spoke, "I digest food and provide you with energy, I am awesome."

Next were the eyes who said "Well without me, you would run into shit and be like Hellen Keller."

The mouth was next saying "Not only do I break food down into digestible particles, I also allow you to communicate with others and perform oral sex."

The debating raged for awhile until a little voice spoke up. It was the asshole. "I am the most important by far. Without me, you all are nothing."

At that, the rest of the body parts laughed.

To this the asshole replied, "Now I'm don't want to see me when I'm angry." And the rest of the body parts laughed some more. The asshole decided to teach those other fuckers a lesson once and for all.

"Fine, we could have done this the easy way, but now it's on."

With that, he clenched really tightly and would not let go. Not too long after, the rest of the body parts started feeling very sick. But the asshole stayed clenched. Soon, the rest of the body parts were near death.

The brain spoke up "FOR GOD'S SAKE, OPEN!" But the asshole ignored him.

Finally, all the body parts agreed that yes, the asshole was the boss!

There was much rejoicing.

Playing For Change - Meet Street Inspiration, Grandpa Elliott

Remember the tacky old grandpa caught in the inspiring street recording, Stand By Me in New Orleans, Loiusiana? That's Grandpa Elliott.

As the Playing For Change team traveled the world searching for music and inspiration, they found personalities and moments in time that made it clear they were on the right path. One of those moments came early in their travels to New Orleans, LA with Grandpa Elliott.

He has become a great symbol for the soul of music, and has been playing on the streets of New Orleans for over 50 years. His music brought a calm to the city after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and this live performance of "Fanny Mae" in Jackson Square demonstrates how much soul and emotion one man can have.

Grandpa Elliott can be seen at the corner of Toulouse and Royal Street in the French Quarter, his patented spot for performing. However, on that morning, there was some street construction happening which made it difficult for recording.

So, the team trudged their gear through the streets of the Quarter and found a quiet spot in the famous surroundings of Jackson Square. Slowly people gathered in curiosity and fascination while Grandpa warmed up his voice and before long we were in record and capturing this amazing performance.

Sometimes a song from a street singer is just enough to make us enjoy our day and carry on with life a little better than before. One song at a time.

I Thank My God Every Time I Remember You

There's a true story of a little boy whose sister needed a blood transfusion. The doctor explained she had the same disease that he'd recovered from two years earlier. Her only chance of recovery was a transfusion from someone who'd conquered it, so the boy was an ideal donor.

"Would you give your blood to Mary?" the doctor asked. Johnny hesitated, his lower lip trembled, and then he smiled and said, "Sure, for my sister." Soon the two children were wheeled into the hospital room - Mary, pale and thin; Johnny, robust and healthy. Neither spoke, but when their eyes met Johnny grinned.

As the nurse inserted the needle into his arm Johnny's smile faded. He watched the blood flow through the tube. With the ordeal almost over Johnny's voice, slightly shaky, broke the silence. "Doctor, when do I die?"

Only then did the doctor realise why little Johnny had hesitated, why his lips trembled when he agreed to donate his blood. He thought giving his blood to his sister meant giving up his life. In that brief moment he had made his great decision.

Who would give their life for you? Those are the people you want to invest your life in. Those are the ones you need to show your appreciation for - now, while you still can. They are irreplaceable!

When they're gone you'll realise that. Some of the things you're striving for now will seem empty then. Some of the things you're upset over now will seem insignificant then.

So squeeze the most out of every moment. Create memories you'll treasure. Be wise, build your life around those who matter!
