The Ocean is NOT a garbage bin

I am constantly distressed when I am sent photographs like this. When is the world going to wake up to the fact that this rubbish is not biodegradable and will be with us for more thank our lifetimes.

Wake Up you fools.

Next time you are offered a plastic bag - give it back
Buy a cotton bag

Take action before it is too late!!

Japan prepares for a decade of whaling...

image used from Wired - permission requested

After all the research and Japan is going to continue to kill whales for Research purposes - this is an absolute Travesty and a slur on the word 'education' - how can a nation as advanced and as controlling as Japan continue to kill whales?

" Case Closed "

But then in Asia there is so much that is done so one does not lose face that I could imagine that this was why - NO, they are just ****** arrogant

John went to great lengths to explain why the Japanese feel that they have the rite to kill these whales but even I gave up and I am pretty tolerant - Tim agrees with John.

Human Resources

A key to business that John Gray shared with me last week is the care taken of the staff.

Respecting Human Resources is the key to the success in my company.  Many of the people who work for me still work for me - the staff will support the business if the business recognises the staff opinion's.

For other businesses the Thai staff do not share an opinion - which means that changes are very rare.

Communication and sharing the ideas are the step forward BUT some businesses do not like to do this - because this will lead to changes in their opinions. We take care of our staff and I believe that this is what you should do - work as a team NOT management through fear. 

Thailand needs to learn and share ideas BUT unfortunately this is not how business in Thailand works - people try to gauge what they think that they should do NOT have an opinion.

The future is coming but the culture is not embracing the change.

HA HA - ethical to eat meat

photo from care2 - permission requested

I do enjoy it when writers shoot themselves in the foot - "Why it's ethical to eat meat".

Thanks to Mark and Murray for adding to the no meat argument. 

Blow as hard as you want Don S. It's got nothing to do with the rights of others - 
it's the facts

First off, meat is not nutritious. As I stated earlier, the science proves that meat leads to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity.

POINT ONE: When I was in cancer epidemiology I diagnosed a friend's colon cancer, his diet included a 16 oz. steak for dinner every night. He wouldn't listen to me until it was to late and died of colon cancer at age 42. Before you say this was an isolated individual case, the epidemiology supports it.

I have a five year old photo of three fat guys doing simultaneous diabetes blood checks at a German Brauhaus dinner. I mentioned it was suicide to eat meat while diabetic. Two laughed - one listened and stopped eating meat. He is the only one still alive.

POINT TWO: Reproduce a lot (which involved raping unwilling females), and liquidate competitors (slavery and genocide). You can't defend one without defending others on the ground that "we did it to get here, it's no use to stop now".

Overpopulation is our Number 1 problem, It creates and/or contributes to all our survival problems - global warming, food access, delivery and prices, on and on. Apparently some folks still haven't heard about Zero Population growth.
