Great networkers make great leaders because they have unlocked the potential of networking in their busy lives. They have created simple systems that enable them to connect with others, stay connected and create valuable lifetime connections with key players, spheres of influence and other master networkers.
Great networkers are not born, they are created. And it need not be a complex process. The great news is that anyone can improve their networking and influencing skills. The networking world is open to everyone, without exception, as long as your networking values are strong, ethical and transparent. This chapter will show you how to create and maintain strategic alliances and mastermind groups and become a master networker who positively influences many connections within valuable networks.

Many people think that networking is something that you do, rather than a way that you live. Networking is a life skill, rather than something you do only when you want something.

Natural Remedies for Ulcerative Colitis: Yogurt

A yogurt a day could keep the doctors away.

Probiotics, "friendly" bacteria that reside in the gut, have been found to be effective in managing ulcerative colitis. They help control the number of potentially harmful bacteria, reduce inflammation, and improve the protective mucus lining of the gut.

Probiotics are among the more popular remedies for inflammatory bowel disease because they are without significant side effects and appear to be safe.

A University of Alberta study examined 34 people with mild-to-moderate active ulcerative colitis who were unresponsive to conventional treatment. The researchers gave them a probiotic supplement called VSL#3, which provided a total of 3,600 billion bacteria a day for 6 weeks. At the end of the study, 18 people (53 percent) demonstrated remission on sigmoidoscopy and a further 8 people (24 percent) had a favorable response.

Natural Remedies for Ulcerative Colitis: Fish Oil

Wild caught salmon are a great source of Omega-3

Ulcerative colitis, a common form of inflammatory bowel disease, is accompanied by an increased level of leukotriene B4 in the lining of the colon. Fish oils are known to inhibit the synthesis of leukotrienes and it has therefore been postulated that they might be beneficial in the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Researchers at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center have just released the results of a study aimed at testing this hypothesis.

The study involved 11 male patients aged 31 to 74 years who had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. The patients were randomized into two groups with one group receiving 15 fish oil capsules (providing 2.7 grams of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 1.8 grams of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) daily); the other group received placebo capsules (olive oil). After 3 months on the supplements all participants underwent a 2-month wash-out period and were then assigned to the opposite treatment to what they had received during the first stage for another 3 months. Clinical evaluations of all patients were performed at the start of the study and every month thereafter.

Evaluation of the patients' clinical data at the end of the treatment periods showed a significant beneficial effect of fish oil supplementation. The mean disease severity score for the patients on fish oil declined by 56% as compared to 4% for the placebo group. Eight of the 11 patients (72%) were able to markedly reduce or totally eliminate their use of anti-inflammatory medication and steroids while taking the fish oils.

The researchers conclude that fish oil supplementation results in a marked clinical improvement of active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis.

Enjoy Life

Everyday there is much change all around. The weather changes, the time changes, and the mood changes. Every thing is constantly moving. Cars are always moving forward, stop lights are always blinking a different color then the ones behind them, and the wind lets the trees and the grass dance for a while with the lonely leaves…. People often get so caught up in their own movement that it becomes impossible to notice the every day change that is all around.

The things we use to appreciate are the things we take for granted. The glass of happiness and satisfaction gets bigger and more difficult to fill up. The routine of wanting more is a daily inevitability. In todays world wanting more is all we know. Social icons and television always promise happiness and satisfaction as long as we keep doing “this” or keep buying “that”. The tolerance level for happiness shoots way up, and what ever satisfies us now, must be more complex then what did satisfy us a week ago. If only we could learn to appreciate the things we take for granted, and the things that are not so complex, we could then be ultimately satisfied and remain happy forever.

Every day there is much change all around, while the one thing that needs a good change, doesn’t. We fear change because change could interrupt our stability and it could ruin our temporary satisfaction. Sometimes we know we could use a change, but we pretend that we don’t, --and soon that thought gets pushed to the back of our mind, only to come out when we are alone. For some of us change is brought by inspiration, for others, change is brought by tragedy, and some times, every once and a while, the idea of change just clicks. When it clicks, you could be going through your mid life crisis, looking back on your so called life. And you also could be old, wise and on your death bed finally realizing what it’s all about, or you could be a 15-year-old with an open mind. But no matter when it clicks, it will feel like your reborn, viewing the world for the first time. A while after the great change you will notice the every day change that is all around, and appreciate it like you once did, and not only will your glass of happiness and satisfaction be full like before, it will overflow, and that’s when you will realize that every thing is gonna be alright.

Lifestyle Improvements

  1. Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward toward the life that God intended for you . . . with grace, strength courage and confidence.
  2. Today and everyday, deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do. Make yourself so valuable in your work that eventually you will become indispensable. Exercise your privilege to go the extra mile, and enjoy all the rewards you receive. You deserve them!
  3. Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.
  4. Always reward your long hours of labor and toil in the very best way, surrounded by your family. Nurture their love carefully, remembering that your children need models, not critics, and your own progress will hasten when you constantly strive to present your best side to your children. And even if you have failed at all else in the eyes of the world, if you have a loving family, you are a success.
  5. Build this day on the foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you are a creature of God and have the power to achieve any dream by lifting up your thoughts. You can fly when you decide that you can. Never consider defeat again. Let the vision in your heart be in your life's blueprint. Smile!

Creating Your Own Standard

Your standard of beauty is your lens to what is attractive or ugly. But it is also at your will to demolish and recreate it. "Make your own standard of beauty, and be free of what society expects you to like or dislike."

"Great masters have reproduced the naked human body endlessly through the ages -- Michelangelo's magnificent 'David' is a superb example -- just as they have reproduced both male and the female nude body in all its splendor. Museums are filled with their testimonials to the beauty of the human form."

-Wardell Baxter Pomeroy, 1991

And when I say to create your own, I don't mean to lower your expectations when judging beauty. If you only become less judgmental of others, you would still be going along with what society teaches as beautiful and ugly. You would be satisfied with achieving whatever level of beauty you had resigned yourself to -- and not creating your own standard of beauty.

When you change how you measure attraction, start and end where you individually desire. You are no longer dependent upon what the majority of news outlets have impressed upon you. You're not changing how much "beauty" you require in a partner, or how much "ugliness" is considered unacceptable. You're changing what you define as beautiful and ugly.

With your own standard, you will be personally writing the definition of 'gorgeous' and 'homely'. Choose what you are innately drawn to -- choose what is naturally attractive to you. It could be a facial hair or mustache, it could be legs or skin; there could be any attribute or detail that arouses you. You should know and understand your impulses. Then you can craft a measurement of beauty that is personally satisfying -- a view that provides guidance and confidence in your life decisions.

It is better that you are happy with what you want, than you are with being pushed into something that society wants you to be. If you are the independent individual, then all of life's experiences will be open to you. All of the exquisite joys and wonderful cravings of human existence will bring you to extreme joy. But if you spend years and years fighting it, ashamed of your desires, then you will have lost -- because that is time you will never get back to be happy.

Cryogenic Freezing

Death is inevitable. This fact is a fundamental part of human existence, something most of us have come to accept on one level or another. Science is rapidly advancing to a stage where some very real possibilities are presenting themselves. In the near future it is perfectly conceivable that the average life expectancy of humans is double or even triple what it is now. Even so, to some people the thought of dying is terrifying enough to warrant spending serious money in order to put it off as long as possible.

A new phenomena has emerged from the American elite, namely terminally ill or injured individuals having themselves cryogenically frozen until such time as a cure is invented for their ailments. Naturally, where there is demand, supply will follow. The main company handling cryogenic freezing is a Californian outfit called the Alcor Foundation, who will freeze you in ‘cryostasis’ using liquid nitrogen for a paltry $US120,000. Unfortunately for those wishing to undergo the procedure, you have to move to California, currently the only place on the planet where cryogenic freezing is legal. Applicants are still required to go through a very complex legal process in order to gain entry to the program, and you must become a member of the Alcor Foundation before you can apply.

The million-dollar question, however, is does it work? Well, not yet, according to Alcor. The idea is that because science is moving so fast, in just a few years they should have the technology to re-animate you, and repair all the damage done to your body as a result of being frozen at -220C. The human body is a very intricate and complex organism. Every second of the day blood is being pumped around your body, delivering vital energy and nutrients to your cells. These cells have very limited energy reserves, so when your heart stops and the blood is no longer flowing, they quickly run out of nutrients and begin to succumb to toxic chemical reactions. The key point is that when subjected to extreme cold, these toxic reactions are greatly slowed down. By freezing the cells in liquid nitrogen, Alcor hopes to slow the decaying process down to a point where you can be theoretically be kept in cryostasis forever. Their philosophy is that if a person’s body and brain cells are properly preserved, then that person is potentially alive, no matter how long they might have been clinically ‘dead’.

Cryogenic freezing is already common for bacteria and other living cells, with great success. Unfortunately the body is infinitely more complex than these relatively simple organisms, and so there are some serious drawbacks to the process in human beings. For example, when the temperature passes -100C, water is forced out of the cells and crystallises, piercing the membrane and causing significant damage. As you freeze, there is a very real chance your tissues will tear due to differences in temperature between areas of the body. Alcor acknowledges these damages are unavoidable, and even provides a full list of theoretical dangers of the process on request. They express confidence, however, that the emerging science of nanotechnology will easily be able to repair you before you are brought back to life. is a great source for current ongoing lawsuits that may affect you or a loved one. If you've been permanently injured, you're entitled to at least a free lawsuit consultation by phone. They are usually very receptive and if you have a viable case, will get your lawsuit up and going in no time.

A status conference is scheduled for today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota to discuss the status of the Levaquin litigation, involving lawsuits filed by users of the antibiotic who suffered severe tendon damage and other side effect of Levaquin. Lawyers will also review with the Court the schedule for the first Levaquin trial, which is expected to begin in about 60 days.
As of last month, there were 770 Levaquin lawsuits pending in federal court, which have been centralized for pretrial proceedings as part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL) before U.S. District Judge John R. Tunheim in Minnesota. Another 573 suits are pending in state courts, with 551 pending in New Jersey.
According to a proposed agenda for the Joint Conference scheduled for today, Levaquin lawyers will review with the Court the status of the litigation, outstanding motions, the proposed trial schedule for the first Levaquin trial and the scheduling of the second Levaquin bellwether trial.
During a status conference on August 3, it was suggested that the first lawsuit will go to trial in early November, with the trial expected to last approximately 12 days. The case, which involves a claim filed by John Schedin, is one of six Levaquin bellwether cases selected for early trials to to help the attorneys for both sides gauge how juries will respond to similar evidence and testimony that is likely to be introduced in other suits, potentially helping the parties eventually negotiate a Levaquin settlement agreement.
In New Jersey state court, the first trial is currently set to begin on April 4, 2011.
Levaquin (levofloxacin) is a popular antibiotic that was first approved by the FDA in December 1996. It is prescribed to prevent infection by stopping the reproduction of bacteria, but it has also been found to be toxic to tendons, causing an increased risk of tendon damage and possible tendon ruptures from Levaquin.
In July 2008, the FDA required that a "black box" warning be added about the side effects of Levaquin and other similar antibiotics, which is the strongest warning that can be placed on a prescription medication. However, consumer advocates called for Levaquin tendon rupture warnings to be added at least two years earlier, with Public Citizen filing a petition with the FDA in 2006 insisting that consumers and the medical community be provided with clearer warnings about the risk of tendon damage.

Prank Call Pickup Artist

Early in life at the age of 15 I found myself bored one night and decided to just make random crank calls.

Typical stuff like you might here from the jerkey boys. But after being bored and running out of material, I decided to see how long I could keep a Girl on the phone without here hanging up on me.

I have never been successful at meeting women in real time face to face but soon discovered I could entertain strange women over the telephone. So after about 10 hangups from Women I finally baited a woman long enough to talk to. "Hello is Anne there" i asked. "There is not Anne here at this residence" she said. "Oh, I met this lady last night at the On Broadway (Nightclub) and this is the number she gave me". She told me she wasnt there and had never been to the nightclub but was somewhat amused at the fact someone did this to me. I tried to give her the impression I was sad over the phone and asked if She had any friends that would do such a thing. She was hooked more and told me she had a few that might do something like this. It turned out she was a married navy wife who was from the filipines. She was bored and was in the middle of seperation from her husband.

I realized she became more and more confortable talking to me. I didnt want to ruin the chance of meeting this woman so I told her I was late for work and that i really enjoyed talking to her and if it was ok to call her back. She agreed.

Miss Heroin

So now little man, you've grown tired of grass,
LSD, Goofballs, Cocaine, and Hash.
And someone, pretending to be a true friend,
"I'll introduce you to Miss Heroin" I said.

Well honey, before you start fooling with me,
Just let me inform you of how it will be.
For I will seduce you and make you my slave.
I've sent men much stronger than you to their graves.

Accutane Settlements in the Millions

Yesterday’s revelation that actor James Marshall (A Few Good Men, Gladiator) had filed a lawsuit against Roche Pharmaceuticals because of side effects he claims he suffered as a result of using Accutane has taken a turn, as his case has been delayed. The reason for the pause is because of a New Jersey appeals court decision to overturn a verdict for a $10.5 million settlement from 2008.

Plaintiff Kamie Kendall was awarded the settlement two years ago, after her lawyers successfully argued that Roche had failed to substantially provide information regarding the side effects associated with the once-popular severe nodular acne medication. Kendall developed inflammatory bowel disease, she claimed, from using Accutane. IBD is a serious side effect that has been associated with the drug; however, the appeals court determined that Roche had been wrongfully blocked from providing evidence crucial to the pharmaceutical giant’s defense.

Marshall is similarly seeking $11 million for his own dealings with IBD. The actor had most of his colon removed because of the terrible gastrointestinal disorder, of which he blames Accutane and Roche. But the overturn of the decision for Kendall means that other cases may be reviewed for similar oversight, and future cases may be examined with newer scrutiny. More than 5,000 cases have accumulated against Roche, stemming from patients who have cited side effects including IBD, as well as Chron’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, liver and kidney diseases, and a number of psychological disorders.

Despite the overturned verdict in Kendall’s case, juries and judges have still awarded more than $45 million in settlements to victims of Accutane for the debilitating side effects they have suffered.

Sotret Case in New Jersey

Although there are many lawsuits against the makers of Accutane, there are fewer lawsuits against the generic brands of isotretinoin. Although the active chemical is exactly the same, some firms only accept Accutane cases. I took Sotret 40mg from Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals and am in the process of filing a lawsuit against them for causing this debilitating chronic disease on me.

There have been so many other people in my exact situation, where they took Accutane in their teen years only to develop ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease a couple of years later.

There is only one way to spell isotretinoin, and I'm taking them to court about it.



What is a drug?

People who take drugs, take them to feel good, or better about themselves. There are many things that people do to achieve the same effect. I know, that when i am on a little break from smoking trees, and i have a shitty day, i lift weights to feel good. On a day where i am scheduled to lift, i think about it a lot. At an Alcoholic's Anonymous meeting, that is described as a serious mental addiction, or a phenomena of craving. They say that alcoholics get drunk off the first drink, cause once u pop the fun CAN'T stop. Once i get lifting, nothing will pry me from that bench in that ratty corner of my basement. If that isn't a drug, i don't know what is.

I guess the argument could be made, that with exercising, you are not ingesting anything. OK, but i have a friend who eats his feelings. For those of you who do not know what i mean; when he has a shitty day, he goes home and just eats and eats and eats. Not only is he doing or ingesting something to feel good, but he is causing bodily harm, could food be considered a controlled substance?

Asprin and advil and other various household or prescription drugs are used to ease pain and do away with a sickness. Marijuana and friends are used to ease the pain of life, and are used to do away with sadness.

Pharmaceutical Incentives

The pharmaceutical business is one of the most profitable markets in America. With their heavy bars to entrance, they essentially have a monopoly on the drug market.

The fact that there is more money in keeping a diseases controlled than in curing the disease completely. These pharmaceuticals essentially gain a life-time customer, with no choice but to fork over the money to buy next months pills.

Out of all the advancements in technologies over the past decade, our incurable diseases are still incurable and permanent.

Yesterday, I decided to not take my medication for a couple of days, just to see if my body was strong enough to live on its own, but the pains have already began.

I wish that there was more money in curing a disease than maintaining it for the rest of your life.

Accutane Linked With Ulcerative Colitis

Accutane has a history of bad side effects, but one of the most severe is the chronic inflammatory condition known as ulcerative colitis. The drug was originally synthesized as a cancer fighting drug, only to show amazing results at reducing nodular acne. The exact metabolic pathways that this drug alters is unknown, but this drug has some of the most severe side effects, ranging from chronic inflammatory bowel disease, depression to suicide.

There have been over 5000 personal injury cases to this date against the makers of Accutane, and I am one of them.

April 2008, a New Jersey woman received $10.5 million from a case against Roche, citing that the company failed to warn of the risk of dangerous and chronic conditions. After starting Accutane treatment, the woman developed ulcerative colitis at age 14 and later had to have her colon removed. She now faces chronic and debilitating diarrhea.

February 2010, a computer technician from Birmingham, Alabama, received $25.16 million in settlement damages from Roche. The 38-year-old man began taking Accutane for his acne in 1995 and soon developed inflammatory bowel disease, requiring five surgeries and a removal of his colon. The jury found that Roche failed to warn users of the risk of bowel disease associated with the medication.

The Window

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man  was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour a day to drain the fluids from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. And every afternoon when the  man in the bed next to the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed would live for those one-hour periods where  his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and  color of the outside world. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake, the man had said. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Lovers walked arm in arm amid flowers of every color of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.  Although the other man could not hear the band, he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive  words. Unexpectedly, an alien thought entered his head: Why should hehave all the pleasure of seeing everything while I never get to see  anything? It didn't seem fair. As the thought fermented, the man felt  ashamed at first. But as the days passed and he missed seeing more sights, his envy eroded into resentment and soon turned him sour. He   began to brood and found himself unable to sleep. He should be by that  window - and that thought now controlled his life.

Late one night, as he lay staring at the ceiling, the man by the window  began to cough. He was choking on the fluid in his lungs. The other man   watched in the dimly lit room as the struggling man by the window groped for the button to call for help. Listening from across the room, he never moved, never pushed his own button which would have brought the nurse running. In less than five minutes, the coughing and choking  stopped, along with the sound of breathing. Now, there was only silence--deathly silence.

Natural Remedies for Ulcerative Colitis: Boswellia

 The resin from this tree have anti-inflammatory properties
Boswellia is a herb that comes from a tree native to India. The active ingredient is the resin from the tree bark, which has been found to block chemical reactions involved in inflammation. It is used by people with ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions. Unlike anti-inflammatory medication, boswellia doesn't seem to cause gut irritation that can occur with many conventional pain relievers.

A 1997 study of people with ulcerative colitis found that 82 percent of those who took a boswellia extract 350 milligrams three times daily experienced remission. Rare side effects of bowellia include diarrhea, nausea, and skin rash.

Natural Remedies for Ulcerative Colitis: Aloe Vera

Aloe vera gel has been found in studies to have an anti-inflammatory effect.

Aloe vera acts as a natural anti-inflammatory helping to bring the body at to a more normal functioning level and stay there.

Acting as an intercellular antioxidant, detoxifying the body naturally, aloe vera helps to rebuild and repair the protective mucosa lining throughout the digestive tract and mends the damaged tissue from mouth to rectum.

It aids digestion, enabling better absorption and assimilation of nutrients from food, it balances and restores proper immune system function and the aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides contain antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiparasitic properties.

Whipworm Can Possibly Treat Crohns Disease?

There are many alternative treatments for Crohn's disease; aloe vera isn't the only remedy out there. In fact, one of the latest studies showing promise for Crohn's disease sufferers is an alternative treatment known as helminthic therapy.

Helminthic therapy is an alternative treatment that uses Trichiuruis suis (pig whipworm) to combat symptoms of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. During therapy, a patient is given eggs of the pig whipworm. The eggs hatch within the body, grow and colonize for a limited time and then disappear, so no harm is done.

It may sound bizarre and disgusting to treat Crohn's by causing an infestation of pig whipworm in the intestines, after all, shouldn't we in Western civilization be celebrating that we've eradicated these pests from our systems with our sanitized culture? We're the first people in history to be worm free, so where's the logic behind this therapy? As ridiculous as it seems, when you learn all the facts behind helminthic therapy, you'll find that it's not as crazy as it sounds.

I realized something...

...when I decided to post about my chronic affliction online I realized that I am not alone in my fight. There are many others out there just like myself fighting with all levels of severity of ulcerative colitis.

They probably don't tell anyone because its such a terrible condition to have. To those who have ulcerative colitis, stay strong and fight it for your life.

The human being is a very resilient creature and has overcome all obstacles to this date.

$25 Million After Having Colon Removed

A New Jersey jury has hit the pharmaceutical company that makes Accutane with a $25.16 million judgment in a lawsuit filed by an Alabama man who blamed the drug for his inflammatory bowel disorder.

Thirty-eight-year-old Andrew McCarrell of Moody, Ala., took the acne drug in his 20s. He says Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. failed to adequately warn of its side effects. McCarrell eventually had his colon removed.

Divorce Your Ego


What drives us to become (or not become) who we are as individuals?

Why do our egos exist and does it truly lie behind the "mind's eye", serving as both a conscience, a memory bank, an experience vault and our innate definition of free will?

As human beings, our desire to find the purpose of our existence has been shrouded by the cowardice most of us possess when faced with a reckoning of who or what is really behind the wheel, controlling our actions.

It's truths could be remarkable, enlightening and frightening, all at the same time. A handful of some of the most respected Thinkers of this genre all had much to offer by way of introducing this relatively new (yet tested and proven repeatedly) method of higher understanding.

Blogging and Life

Suppose everyone had a blog, what would they put on it? What colors would they choose? What kind of pictures would they upload?

A blog is as unique and unlimited as a person, for within each and every one of us are stories and interesting ideas, full of untapped potential. The value of your inner most thoughts can never be realized until you speak them.

Thanks and I hope for the best in your daily battles.

Lawsuit with Girardi Keese against Sotret

I just got a phone call from a representative from Girardi Keese and the lawsuit against Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals is under way. Honestly though, I would rather have my original health over any monetary compensation. Being afflicted with a chronic disease at this age can only mean worse in the later years of my life.

When I first found out I had ulcerative colitis I was angry at everyone, the doctor, my family, myself. How could my body be so weak? This condition is disabling in the sense that your frequently have to use the bathroom during flares, and complications can lead to the entire removal of the large intestine, called an ileostmy.

I pray that I will never need to do such a thing.
