Chinese Woman Partially Loses Vision After Gaming Marathon









 






A 21-year-old Chinese woman lost sight in one eye after playing a popular video game on her mobile phone nonstop for a whole day.

The young woman was addicted to a video game called Honour of Kings. She was having a gaming marathon, having played it for hours, when suddenly she went blind in her right eye, South China Morning Post reported.

At the hospital she was diagnosed with retinal artery occlusion.

A local doctor was quoted as saying that retinal artery occlusion was a condition linked with elderly people and it is rarely seen in the young; however, the woman’s blindness was most likely caused by severe eyestrain.

The young woman said that she had become so obsessed with the game that she would play it after work and all day on the weekends.

“On days when I have no work, I usually get up at 6 a.m., eat breakfast and play until 4 p.m. Then I’ll eat something, have a nap and play until 1a.m.,” she said.

She added that sometimes she would become so absorbed in the game that she would forget to eat altogether.

MSNBC ‘Loses Connection’ Right As Reporter Exposes Oil Industry For Robbing Locals Of Infrastructure Funding







Next Story

Hurricane Harvey has been making headlines all over due to the scale of destruction it has caused in Texas. While covering Harvey for Al Jazeera, reporter Shihab Rattansi told MSNBC host Ali Velshi last week that fossil fuel companies have been robbing locals in the Texas, Louisiana, and Gulf Coast area of infrastructure funds that could have lessened their suffering dramatically.

Shihab says himself that as an “Al Jazeera guy,” his job is to “get to the point.” Al Jazeera has always been known for creating news and media focused on openness, transparency, and calling out corruption — things we don’t often see in North American mainstream media.

In the clip below, Rattansi discusses climate change and the oil industry’s role in it. It must be noted that the oil industry has been responsible for a ton of environmental destruction including pollution, clear cutting, ocean life destruction, and more. Humanity needs to move beyond oil and we have, and have had, all the technologies to do so for decades. But there is also much to talk about when it comes to the climate change agenda that is taking place. Yes our climate is shifting and we need to respond. We also need to stop pollution from things like oil, but understanding the cause, the natural cycles at play, and how to properly prepare, is much more important than creating tax systems and carbon credits. These won’t solve anything.

Rattansi Exposes Big Oil

“It’s pretty clear something has gone wrong here,” Rattansi said, describing the unexpected flooding. “We’re in what’s called the Golden Triangle… the reason why it’s called the Golden Triangle is because this is the first place in the United States that they discovered large quantities of oil. And that led to the Texas oil boom and the money flowing into this region.”

“It’s pretty clear though,” he continued, “money has not been flowing into this region for the infrastructure for the climate change effects that we knew were inevitable because of the oil and gas industry’s activities on this coastline, even after those oil and gas industries were covering up what they knew about climate change in the ’70s.”

“You can’t make a connection between the oil and gas industry and climate change much clearer,” he said. “In the past, oil and gas companies have gotten away with sort of covertly losing their toxic waste in emergencies like this.”

“This is something we’ve been warned about for years by climate scientists, Pro Publica had a piece just last year warning something like this was about to happen in the Houston area… And there aren’t the preparations for it. And yet, so much money has been generated here.”

Just seconds after this exposure, Velshi tells viewers that MSNBC had lost contact with Rattansi, and they went on to cover more rescue footage. While it’s nice to see people being helped, the timing is suspicious, given he was speaking against corporate interests.

There’s one other detail I wanted to bring attention to. As I watched this video for the second or third time, I thought I heard whispers before Rattansi’s audio was cut. I played it back many times, but couldn’t make it out or even determine for sure if that’s what it was, but clearly something can be heard around 4:52 that resembles a whisper. Check it out for yourself and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Deranged, Unstable CNN Loses Its Mind Post-Trump Rally, Led by This Don Lemon Rant

CNN Tonight with Don Lemon
August 22, 2017
11:26 p.m. Eastern

DON LEMON: Well, what do you say to that? I’m just going to speak from the heart here. What we witnessed is a total eclipse of the facts. Someone who came out on stage and lied directly the American people and left things out that he said in an attempt to rewrite history, especially when it comes to Charlottesville. He’s unhinged, it’s embarrassing and I don’t mean for us, the media because he went after us, but for the country. This is who we elected President of the United States. A man who is so petty that he has to go after people who he deems to be his enemy, like an imaginary friend of a six-year-old. His speech was without thought, it was without reason, it was devoid of facts, it was devoid of wisdom. There was no gravitas. There was no sanity. He was like a child blaming a sibling on something else. He did it. I didn’t do it. He certainly opened up the race wound from Charlottesville. A man clearly wounded by the rational people who are abandoning him in droves, meaning those business people and the people in Washington now who are questioning his fitness for office and whether he is stable. A man backed into a corner it seems by circumstances beyond his control and beyond his understanding. That’s the truth. If you watch that speech as an American, you had to be thinking what in the world is going on? This is the person we elected as President of the United States? This petty, this small, a person who who’s supposed to pull the country together? Certainly didn’t happen there.

(….)

11:28 p.m. Eastern

DAVID CHALIAN: Well, I thought that was a President totally unhinged. There’s little doubt about that for anyone watching. I do think you get at a point. This is — this is the evidence that backs up Bob Corker questioning his stability for office. This is the evidence as to why Susan Collins, another Republican Senator isn’t so sure he may be around to run for reelection in 2020. This is evidence as to why the Republican leader — and I’m only referring to people from his own party in case people think this is a partisan political issue. It’s not, Why Mitch McConnell, the leader of his own party is telling associates, as we learned from The New York Times, he’s not sure this presidency is going to fill out the duration of the term, questioning whether or not his presidency is permanently off course. This is the evidence that it is so severely off course you can’t see the course. It’s hard to see how he’s going to get back on. And the fact that the President of the United States came out tonight — and as you said, it’s not about attacking us. That’s fine. Although we in the press are going to be the last people to take lessons from Donald Trump on truth telling and facts because that’s absurd. 

LEMON: The man who’s lied a thousand times since taking office.

CHALIAN: But the fact this is one night after he appealed to the country about unity, about coming together, about peace and love, these were the words he used last night at the top of his speech before he got the Afghanistan section because he was still trying to do some clean up on Charlottesville and really tried to talk about the notion of love and peace and unity and this was nothing but a speech of division tonight. He has — I think he’s sort of thrown up his hands and decided to the job he was elected to do is one he does not at all seem interested in doing. 

LEMON: He was more interested in getting the accolades from the crowd and from winning. He keeps going back that election and, as I said, lying about what he said to the American people regarding Charlottesville, as if there is no videotape. As if these things are not on record, leaving out the many, many sides and there’s so many notes that I took here. After a while, I said, well, I mean, we’d have to be on air in order to fact check him for 10 more hours , which I’m sure other shows on CNN will do throughout the evening and throughout the morning here on the network. But it was unbelievable watching. And, again, we don’t really care in the media. We expected him to go after us. People are wondering, April Ryan, why did we run this? We want people to see their President and they got good glimpse of him now as somebody not widening the tent, but shrinking his tent and shrinking the people who support him. Among the general public and certainly in Washington.

(….)

11:34 p.m. Eastern

LEMON: But what got me is he painted himself as the victim, as the President of the United States is supposed to take the high road and set an example when the only victim in Charlottesville was Heather Heyer, barely a mention of her name, maybe he mentioned her once, didn’t say her name. But she is the victim in all of this. The President of the United States — Mr. President, you are not a victim here at all. Heather Heyer is the victim. The people who you spoke out about are victims. 

RYAN: But, Don, he – yeah, but he’s now talking about all this love. We did not hear the love. During the campaign speeches, I didn’t hear this over arching theme of love. I heard more rhetoric and division to divide the nation. 

LEMON: He almost did the same thing tonight when he said we’re safer in here because we got bigger people. We can beat you up better. That was the insinuation. I’m paraphrasing. Rick Wilson, what did you think?

RYAN: And how did that person get in here? I mean, if it’s about love, everyone should be invited. This is not a private event anymore, or is it? That’s my thing.

Kelly loses control as ‘vacationing’ Trump unleashes angriest Tweetstorm yet

The failing @nytimes, which has made every wrong prediction about me including my big election win (apologized), is totally inept!

The Trump base is far bigger & stronger than ever before (despite some phony Fake News polling). Look at rallies in Penn, Iowa, Ohio and West Virginia. The fact is the Fake News Russian collusion story, record Stock Market, border security, military strength, jobs, Supreme Court pick, economic enthusiasm, deregulation & so much more have driven the Trump base even closer together. Will never change!

Hard to believe that with 24/7 #Fake News on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYTIMES & WAPO, the Trump base is getting stronger!

Trump Loses it Over Healthcare Debate

Trump Loses it Over Healthcare Debate



by Stephen Lendman 



He’s part of the problem, not the solution, wanting to fatten the bottom line of industry predators at the expense of affording all Americans a fundamental human right.



The solution to resolving debate over healthcare is as clear as expanding Medicare to cover everyone.



Yet this fundamental right is rejected by Republicans, Democrats and all administrations, even New Deal and Great Society ones.



What was unattainable earlier is scoffed at now. Trump lashed out against GOP failure to repeal and replace Obamacare with a tirade of tweets, saying:



“Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don’t go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time……”



“….8 Dems totally control the U.S. Senate. Many great Republican bills will never pass, like Kate’s Law and complete Healthcare. Get smart!”



“After seven years of ‘talking’ Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!”



“Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!”



“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”



He referred to billions of dollars paid annually to insurers – fattening their bottom line, not lowering premiums for low-income households.



If subsidies to insurers stop, premiums will skyrocket more than already. On Friday, Trump tweeted let Obamacare “implode.”



Most Americans want Medicare for all. Congress and the White House rule it out for discussion.



Physicians for a National Health Program president Dr. Carol Paris said GOP senators’ failure to repeal and replace Obamacare is no justification for retaining the unacceptable status quo.



It’s time to expand Medicare to cover all Americans. The world’s richest country is the only one without some form of universal coverage.



Millions are uninsured, most others underinsured. “Compared to ten other wealthy countries, the US ranks dead last for life expectancy, and access to care,” Paris explained. 



“We even have the lowest number of hospital beds per capita, a way that health experts measure the capacity of a nation’s health system.” 



“It’s as if our system was designed to deny care” – along with making it increasingly unaffordable for low and middle-income households.



America ranks highest in time and energy wasted on billing and insurance claims. Among developed nations, it has the highest infant mortality and percentage of avoidable deaths.



The system is dysfunctional, based on the ability to pay, spending double the per capita amount of other developed nations, providing worse care overall.



For America’s least advantaged, proper care for serious illnesses is increasingly out of reach, tens of millions affected.



Nearly a third of US healthcare spending goes for things other than providing care, what medicine is all about – not enriching industry CEOs, dealing daily with a stifling bureaucracy, and ripping off consumers.



From her experience in dealing with Medicare, Paris said “as a physician (it’s) worked pretty darn well for more than 50 years.” It’ll work well in perpetuity if properly administered.



Expanding it to include everyone, covering everything related to care is easily financed by current company and individual payroll deductions, along with annual savings of around $500 billion in insurance premiums.



“We’ve tried everything” but the obvious solution, Paris explained. It’s time to adopt the only equitable alternative. 



Nothing else works properly for the great majority of Americans.

Man Loses 110 Pounds in Six Months & Overcomes Numerous Health Issues With A “Mucusless Diet”

I was intrigued the first time I heard of the Mucusless Diet Healing System, but not enough to look into it further. The name alone sort of jumps out at you when you hear it the first time. But then it popped up again… and again. I eventually thought to myself, Is the universe trying to tell me something?

It wasn’t until I went on an extended juice fast for 55 days (click here for that story) that I really started taking Arnold Ehret’s work seriously. He created this diet, but what I was really interested in were his views on fasting. After reading his book on rational fasting, I then went on to buy the rest of his works, many of which were annotated by Professor Spira, who I quickly learned is one of the leading authorities on the Mucusless Diet Healing System. The next logical step was to contact him for an interview on our podcast, The Way Within (linked below).

Professor Spira’s Transformation

 

In 2002, Spira was a 300-pound, 19-year-old former high school football player who suffered from multiple ailments such as daily migraine headaches, frequent ear infections, sleep apnea, painful acid reflux, allergies, joint pain, yearly bouts of bronchitis, constant cold and flu-like symptoms, dry itchy skin, chronic constipation, ear infections, and bad body odour. After losing his mother to a terrible string of chronic illnesses when he was in the sixth grade, he grew up under the assumption that he was genetically destined to be sick his whole life. While studying jazz trombone performance at the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music, he met a jazz drummer named Willie Smart (aka Brother Air) who told him about Arnold Ehret’s Mucusless Diet Healing System.

He had no idea that the mucus-forming foods he consumed every day played a huge part in his poor health. All he knew was that if he continued on this path of self-destruction, he would surely die at a young age. Within six months of reading Arnold Ehret’ book, Spira had lost 110 pounds and overcome all of his major ailments. He was able to throw away his CPAP unit (an oxygen mask that treats sleep apnea) and the medications he had taken since childhood.

Since his transformation, Spira has become a world-renowned authority on the Mucusless Diet and inspired thousands of people to use Ehret’s Healing System to overcome their illnesses through his writings, music, and one-on-one consultation and coaching sessions.

The photo on the left was taken September 2003 for Spira’s new Resident Adviser ID. The picture on the right was taken one year later after losing 110 pounds and overcoming numerous health issues.

Arnold Ehret’s Story – The Discovery of the Mucusless Diet Healing System

Arnold Ehret was born July 25, 1866, near Freiburg, in Baden, Germany. His father was a brilliant farmer who was so technologically advanced that he crafted all of his own farming equipment. Like his father, Ehret would be endowed with a passion for studying the causes and effects of the phenomena around him. His interests included physics, chemistry, drawing, and painting. He also had an affinity for linguistics and could speak German, French, Italian, and English.

At the age of 21 he graduated as a professor of drawing and was drafted into the military, only to be discharged because of heart trouble. At the age of 31 he was diagnosed with Bright’s disease (inflammation of the kidneys) and pronounced incurable by 24 of Europe’s most respected doctors. He then explored natural healing and visited sanitariums to learn holistic methods and philosophies. In a desperate attempt to end his misery, Ehret decided to stop eating. To his amazement, he did not die, but instead gained both strength and vitality.

In 1899 he traveled to Berlin to study vegetarianism, followed by a trip to Algiers in northern Africa where he experimented with fasting and a fruit diet. Due to his new lifestyle, Ehret completely cured himself of all of his diseases and could now perform great feats of physiological strength, including an 800 mile bicycle trip from Algiers to Tunis. He had rediscovered that pus- and mucus-forming foods are the cause for all human disease and that “fasting (simply eating less) is Nature’s omnipotent method of cleansing the body from the effects of wrong and too much eating” (Hirsch 1994, 9).

In the early 1900s, Ehret opened a hugely popular sanitarium in Ascona, Switzerland, where he treated and cured thousands of patients considered incurable by the so-called “medical authorities.” During the latter part of the decade, Ehret engaged in a series of fasts monitored by German and Swiss officials. Within a period of 14 months, Ehret completed a fast of 21 days, one of 24 days, one of 32 days, and one of 49 days. He became one of the most in-demand health lecturers, journalists, and educators in Europe, saving the lives of thousands of people. In 1914, Ehret moved his sanitarium to California and championed his Mucusless Diet Healing System in America.

On October 9, 1922, at the age of 56, Arnold Ehret suffered a tragic fall, sustaining a fatal blow to his skull. According to Ehret’s disciple Fred Hirsch, he was walking briskly on a wet, oil-soaked street during foggy conditions when he slipped and fell backward onto his head. Hirsch did not actually see the fall but found Ehret lying on the street. Another one of Ehret’s disciples, Benedict Lust, maintained that Ehret was wearing his first pair of new dress shoes and slipped as a result of his unfamiliarity with the footwear. To this day, the true nature of Ehret’s death raises many suspicions among Ehretists. Ehret’s powerful healing successes along with his influential and revolutionary new lifestyle terribly threatened the medical, meat, and dairy industries. Due to these factors, many believe that foul play was involved in his untimely death.

Arnold Ehret is a cultural icon and was an important protagonist of the emerging back-to-nature renaissance in Germany and Switzerland during the latter part of the 19th century. This renaissance spread to America and influenced many of the countercultural movements including the Beat Generation, the vegetarian driven “hippie” movement, veganism, and fruitarianism. Throughout the 20th century the teachings of Ehret have thrived and developed through the sincere efforts of a small group of dedicated Ehretists. Today Ehret’s teachings are gaining wider acceptance throughout the world as people discover for themselves the undeniable truth of his teachings.
