Corporate Justice Blog: Occupy Wall Street XI: An American Oligarchy?

Corporate Justice Blog: Occup


lass is disappearing. The emergence of Occupy Wall Street highlights a growing oligarchy in American society. While many claim that this phenomenon—disappearing middle class and growing American oligarchy—is not happening, the reality augers otherwise. Wealth continues to grow in the United States in the hands of a very few, and with this, the middle-class is simply eroding. The bottom 80% of U.S. households receive less than half of total income paid out to Americans. An oligarchy is defined by Merriam-Webster as “a government in which a small group exercises control especially for corrupt and selfish purposes.”

Nobel laureate Paul Krugman of The New York Times opines that, even though the Occupy Wall Street movement is correctly portraying the wealth disparity in a 99% to 1% disparity, wealth concentration in the top 1% is misleading, it is more like the top thousandth (0.01%) of Americans who are seeing their income rise exponentially. From 1979 to 2005, this group, the 0.01%, which includes Wall Street executives, saw an income increase of more than 400 percent! With such a concentration of wealth in a tiny number of a select few, Krugman argues that democracy in America is becoming nothing more than a façade. The American oligarchy is growing more wealthy and influential, leaving behind most of America, and thus, threatening America’s real democracy.

Gluten Free Diet: How to Train Yourself Off Wheat

Gluten free diet benefits are huge for those with celiac disease or a gluten allergy.  But feedback is not immediate.  How to stop eating gluten?

Avoiding gluten is a real struggle: we are used to eating wheat-based foods – it seems like almost everything is either made of wheat, or has wheat in it.  This isn’t really true of course, but when you are trying to avoid gluten, that’s all you see everywhere: wheat, barleyoats and rye as far as the eye can see!

I’ll tell you about a method I have used to avoid gluten and stay on a gluten-free diet.

The first thing to understand when avoiding a food is that you can’t not eat wheat!  How do you not do something?  By asking yourself that question, you are already at a disadvantage.

Instead, you need to do a food substitution in your head.

Every time you think “wheat”, or “bread”, or “cookie” or whatever, you need to replace that thought with a gluten-free alternative.

This is easier than it has ever been.  Now you can think “gluten-free bread” instead of bread or “gluten-fee cookies” instead of “cookies” – and go out and buy them in the store.

The real secret to success is to have gluten free foods on hand.  Think about what you can eat, and have a good store of raw ingredients to make your own gluten free food, and some prepared gluten free snacks for those times when you are too hungry to think.

You will have better luck if you can eliminate all gluten-containing foods from your house and replace all of it with food you can eat.  If this is not possible because of who you share your house with, then at least have  gluten-free cupboard just for you, that you can open and be inspired by.

The key to starting a gluten free diet it to replace the thought “no gluten” with thoughts about specific gluten-free foods you can eat.  You will find many ideas on this and other gluten-free websites on the internet.

Apple Cider Vinegar Health Benefits

What is Apple Cider Vinegar?

In all likelihood, you have a bottle of sparkling clear apple cider vinegar in your kitchen. Most probably you have also heard of all the health benefits of this wonder vinegar. You use it for marinating the meat, chicken and fish. Almost all the salads that you make contain apple cider vinegar. You make a conscious effort to put in a little extra every time, so as to gain from all its good healing properties. If you are using apple cider vinegar that is clear and sparkling, the news is not very good. This apple cider vinegar does not contain all the health benefits that you have heard of.

The Real Apple Cider Vinegar 
The apple cider vinegar that contains all the health benefits is not a clear vinegar, but just the opposite. It is anorganic and unfiltered vinegar . It is not a clear liquid, but has got a brownish tinge to it. If you try looking through it, you will notice a tiny cobweb-like substance floating in it. This is known as “mother”, and means just one thing. This apple cider vinegar is of good quality with all the nutrients and health giving properties intact.
Just think. Would you buy a vinegar from the supermarket that is not clear, has got a brown tinge to it, and most of all you find something floating in it. In all likelihood you will not buy this. This is the prime reason why manufacturers distill the vinegar. The pure vinegar is steamed to get the sparking clear vinegar that is available at the supermarket. This steaming process destroys almost all the health giving nutrients. What it does do is give the vinegar an excellent eye appeal.

Health benefits
There surely must be something really healthy in using apple cider vinegar, since The Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, used this vinegar around 400 B.C. for its health giving qualities. It is said that he had only two remedies: honey and apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is made from fresh ripe apples that are fermented and undergo a stringent process to create the final product. The vinegar is an effective natural bacteria-fighting agent that contains a host of vitamins, beta-carotene, pectin and vital minerals such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, chlorine, sulfur, iron, and fluorine that are vital for a healthy body.

Pectin in the vinegar is a fiber which helps reduce bad cholesterol and helps in regulating blood pressure. The need for calcium supplements once you start growing older is very well-known. This vinegar helps extract calcium from the fruits, vegetables and meat it is mixed with, helping in the process of maintaining strong bones. Potassium deficiency causes a variety of ailments including hair loss, weak finger nails, brittle teeth, sinusitis, and a permanently running nose. Apple cider vinegar is loaded with potassium. Studies have shown that potassium deficiency results in stunted growth. All these ailments can be avoided with the intake of apple cider vinegar. The potassium in this vinegar also helps in eliminating toxic waste from the body. The beta-carotene helps in countering damage caused by free radicals, helping one maintain firmer skin and a youthful appearance. Apple cider vinegar is good for those wanting to lose weight. It helps in breaking down fat which helps in natural weight reduction.
Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid which is very helpful in fighting fungal and bacterial infections. This acid dissolves uric acid deposits that form around joints, helping relieve joint pains. This dissolved uric acid is gradually eliminated from the body.

It is claimed that apple cider vinegar is helpful in ailments such as constipation, headaches, arthritis, weak bones, indigestion, high cholesterol, diarrhea, eczema, sore eyes, chronic fatigue, mild food poisoning, hair loss, high blood pressure, obesity, along with a host of many other ailments. No wonder then many knowapple cider vinegar as the “Wonder Drug”.

Different ways of consumption 
Please make sure that you use only the natural, organic variety of apple cider vinegar; the sparkling clear variety will have practically no health benefits.

Many call apple cider vinegar the Wonder Drug . Propagators of this wonder drug claim that the best way to have the vinegar is first thing in the morning. Mix two tablespoons each of apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water and drink it. This solution may taste slightly acidic, and may not seem to be the best way to start your morning, but once you know of the immense benefits that follow, it will not feel all that bad. Many find that following this routine first thing in the morning helps in eliminating constipation, which is one of the prime causes of many diseases. Constipation is also sometimes the cause of headaches – leading to a bad mood, deprived sleep, and a lethargic feeling the whole day. Once the constipation problem is solved, all the other symptoms vanish immediately, making you fresher and extremely active whole day long. Following this morning regime helps minor skin rashes vanish and the skin texture too improves, leaving you radiant and glowing naturally.
You can also enjoy the benefits of this wonder vinegar in many other ways. Use apple cider vinegar while preparing salads. Substitute the oil that is poured over a salad with this vinegar. Not only will the salad have a tangier taste, it will be much healthier too. Use this vinegar to pickle an assortment of fruits and vegetables. Marinating beef, pork, lamb, fish and a variety of meats is almost a daily process for meat eaters. Make apple cider vinegar the prime ingredient in the marinade with an assortment of herbs and spices. This marinade will not only help in flavoring and tenderizing the meat, but it also comes with all the health benefits that have already been mentioned.
Having that chilled glass of lemon juice can be substituted with a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegarand water. Some prefer the taste as is. If the taste is too acidic for you, add raw, unfiltered honey to give it the sweet tinge. Adding raw, unfiltered honey will only improve the health benefits.
