  • The Blood Sugar Solution

     The Day is Coming When Doctors Finally Admit…

    “Sorry, Drugs and Insulin Won’t Solve
    Your Blood Sugar Problems After All.”

    It’s time you knew the real truth: managing blood sugar with drugs or insulin is like
    mopping up a flooded floor while the faucet’s still overflowing.

    Meds don’t fix the core problem. Studies now show they can make it worse!

    Blood sugar drugs work great to keep drug company profits healthy, but as for your
    health — well, that’s a different story altogether.

    No matter how many meds you take to control it, the complications from high blood
    sugar can kill you. Diabetics still die six years earlier than non-diabetics on average, and
    they may be the most medicated people on earth!

    Here’s Something Else You May Not Know–
    It’s Not Just Diabetics Who Should Worry

    Today, 1 in 2 Americans suffer the hidden effects of a blood sugar disorder that
    carries with it potentially devastating health consequences.

    And if you’re overweight or have even slightly elevated blood sugar, I hate to break it to
    you: you’re probably one of them.

    This metabolic condition, called diabesity, begins with the first signs of insulin
    resistance. Ignore it at your peril, because when left untreated it’s the #1 cause of
    obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, dementia, and premature death
    in America.

    Incredibly, most doctors still take a wait-and-see approach when your blood sugar starts
    to inch up.

    That’s their first mistake….

    Then they make a bigger mistake by treating your blood sugar with drugs that don’t cure anything and often make your problems worse.

    There’s A Better Way to Restore Your Health and I’m Thrilled to Share it With You…

    Now there’s an easy, natural way to reverse high blood sugar — even Type 2 diabetes itself — and actually eliminate the root causes behind your weight gain, fatigue, mental fog, depression, low resistance to colds and flu. No drugs needed. None!

    Pounds melt away even if you’ve been overweight for years. Energy soars. It feels like a cloud is lifted from your life.

    More importantly, you will finally cut down to size the leading cause of diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and premature death today, in ways no prescription drug can ever match.

    Click Here and you can learn all about this natural healing miracle from my good friend and colleague Dr. Mark Hyman, Founder of the famed UltraWellness Center in Lenox, Massachusetts and the world’s leading Functional Medicine pioneer. It’s called:

    THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION
    The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease and FeelingGreat Now!

    The Blood Sugar Solution is based on some of the most cutting-edge research of our time, but Dr. Hyman makes it simple.

    He begins with a series of self-quizzes that let you “look under the hood” and determine which imbalances in your body are causing your blood sugar problems.

    The quizzes follow the same proven approach Dr. Hyman uses in his own practice. They’re based on decades of clinical experience with over 10,000 patients. Using them is practically like consulting with the doctor himself.

    Your answers then steer you to a personalized set of dietary, lifestyle, and supplementation recommendations that you implement, one at a time, over the course of the 8-week program.

    This process roots out and eliminates the hidden causes behind your blood sugar problems. By the time you’re done, you’ll have rebalanced the core systems in your body that will bring about normal blood sugar, ideal weight, and true vitality for life — a state of health Dr. Hyman calls “UltraWellness.”

    You don’t just mask symptoms. You create health. Illness, disease and fat go away, practically as a side effect!

    If That Sounds Simple, There’s A Good Reason Why: It Is!

    One more thing: you can forget everything you’ve been told about “inheriting” your weight problems or high blood sugar. Truth is, you’re not stuck with it.

    New genetic research shows that insulin resistance is almost 100% preventable and
    curable — even if diabetes has run in your family for generations.

    So with The Blood Sugar Solution, you really can…

    *  Pass every blood sugar test with flying colors, naturally

    *  Melt away the extra fat and end junk food cravings forever

    *  Feel years younger with energy that surges through your veins

    *  Lift your spirits and get off the emotional “roller coaster” for good

    *  Take a huge step in preventing diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer

    *  And even eliminate the need for blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure
    meds altogether

    Just  Click Here to be fast-forwarded to the future of
    healthy weight loss and perfect blood sugar for life!

    * You’ll get the proof of how you can restore healthy blood sugar, reverse diabesity and
    even cure Type 2 diabetes without drugs — and without turning your life upside down…

    * You’ll learn how you can root out the real causes of your weight gain and disrupted
    blood sugar metabolism — and eliminate them at their source…

    * You’ll discover the surprisingly few “ingredients” you’ll need to grow healthy — and how
    they’ll leave you brimming with health in ways medication can never match.

    Frankly, it could be years before the medical establishment catches up with Dr. Hyman’s
    breakthrough approach to blood sugar problems, and who can afford to wait?

  • Rethinking the Mother of All Exams

     

     Rethinking the Mother of All Exams

     

    NEW DELHI — For more than half a century, one aptitude test has determined the self-esteem, future and even the spouses of generations of Indian adolescents, chiefly boys. The Joint Entrance Exam of the Indian Institutes of Technology is a brooding cultural force that is visible across the nation, on signboards and newspaper advertisements, as “I.I.T.-J.E.E.,” the first abbreviation many Indian children learn. It is an ominous inevitability for millions of boys, a fate decided in their cradles, a certainty like death. Last year nearly half a million candidates took the test — one of the toughest exams in the world — to compete for about 5,000 seats in the best of the I.I.T.’s and nearly as many seats in the less sought-after institutes. Coaching for the J.E.E. is an industry valued at billions of rupees. There is so much demand that some coaching classes have their own entrance exams. But the J.E.E. is now on its way out.

    It is not the only engineering entrance exam in India. Lower down the rungs, there are other colleges, which require other exams to qualify. Competition is fierce all the way. Disturbed by the number of entrance exams, the Human Resource Development Ministry has decided to devise a common exam that would govern the admission process of several engineering institutes, including the famed I.I.T.’s. The nature of the new aptitude test, which is expected to debut in 2014, would be different from the J.E.E. The selection procedure, too, would be very different from what the I.I.T.’s use today. So, the type of person who enters the I.I.T.’s in the future may be very different. Opinion is divided on whether the new I.I.T. graduate will be better or worse than current alumni.

    The I.I.T.’s are nothing without the national perception of the “IITian.” And the perception is that he is primarily a he. And that he must be very smart. As some Indians point out with a hint of pride, in Scott Adams’s “Dilbert” comic strip, the brilliant Asok, who died on a Moon mission and reincarnated as part man and part Snickers bar, is from I.I.T. The fame of the institutes is an enduring relic from the years when socialism impoverished India and securing an elite engineering degree became the most elegant way for smart Indians to escape to America.

    The I.I.T.’s were never great centers of learning by world standards.

    Rather, they were museums that collected young Indians with excellent quantitative abilities. In the 1980s and ’90s, the migration of Indian scientific talent to the United States, deplored here as a “brain drain,” became a subject of intense debates in schools and colleges. Once, during the convocation ceremony at I.I.T.-Madras, the chief speaker received a standing ovation when he declared, “Brain drain is better than brain in the drain.” His words traveled with the speed of a rumor across Madras, also known as Chennai, through homes and schools, evoking laughter and applause, and delivering a bleak reminder to young boys that their lives depended on passing the J.E.E.

    In Madras in the ’80s, many smart girls were not allowed by their families to take the J.E.E. for fear that it would then be hard to get them married. One girl I knew who cleared the exam was not allowed by her parents to attend the institute, probably for the same reason. But the boys who made it to the I.I.T.’s became the heroes of their neighborhoods. Other boys hated them, and pretty girls wanted to marry them. The adulation would follow them until the end of their time.

    The glamour of the I.I.T.’s has always inspired parents to force their children to take the J.E.E. Increasingly, those parents are from modest educational and financial backgrounds. A few years ago, in Mumbai, I walked into a J.E.E. coaching class that conducted its own entrance exam to filter out 9 out of 10 applicants. An orientation program for parents was under way. A man who could not read English was sitting with brochures and study materials. He was disturbed that I was carrying a red book while he had not been given any such book. I told him that the book I was holding was a novel called “Love in the Time of Cholera.”

    “Is it a guide?” he asked.

    For a long time, the IITians were from urban, literate middle-class families, and it was inevitable that their success would inspire small-town Indians to prepare for the mother of all entrance exams.

    Coaching colleges essentially dispensed with formal schooling and focused on the J.E.E. alone. As they became increasingly successful, it became evident that the J.E.E. was no longer an aptitude test but a giant goal that could be achieved through years of brute hard work and coaching.

    I.I.T. professors and alumni have been mourning the falling quality of the students. Last October, Narayana Murthy, the co-founder of Infosys and an I.I.T. alumnus, told an audience in New York that the new IITians were substandard. “They somehow get through the Joint Entrance Examination. But their performance in I.I.T.’s, at jobs or when they come for higher education in institutes in the U.S. is not as good as it used to be.”

    It is improbable that the I.I.T.’s will ever regain their old glory. The circumstances of the nation have changed, and the smartest Indians do not need an engineering degree to find a place in the world or to make a decent living. Also, the government has not invested enough in the I.I.T.’s, and the most talented scientific minds have the option to enroll in genuinely outstanding centers of learning in the West instead of being stuck in a place that has derived its prestige largely from the fact that only one in 50 cracks its entrance exam.

    China has opened the world’s longest cross-sea bridge – which stretches five miles further than the distance between Dover and Calais . The Jiaozhou Bay bridge is 26.4 miles long and links China’s eastern port city of Qingdao to the offshore island Huangdao. The road bridge, which is 110 feet wide and is the longest of its kind, cost nearly 1 billion to build.

    Police officer in the court.

    If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer’s credibility…

    Q: ‘Officer — did you see my client fleeing the scene?’

    A: ‘No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.’

    Q: ‘Officer — who provided this description?’

    A: ‘The officer who responded to the scene.’

    Q: ‘A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?’

    A: ‘Yes, sir. With my life.’

    Q: ‘With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?’

    A: ‘Yes sir, we do!’

    Q: ‘And do you have a locker in the room?’

    A: ‘Yes sir, I do.’

    Q: ‘And do you have a lock on your locker?’

    A: ‘Yes sir.’

    Q: ‘Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?’

    A: ‘You see, sir — we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.’

    The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called. The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year’s ‘Best Comeback’ line — and we think he’ll win.

    How to Balance Public, Private, and Social Media

    by CTCT Employee Azure_Collier on 01-19-2012 01:00 PM

    A few weeks ago, I got a friend request on Facebook. I recognized the name and clicked on the person’s profile to check out his information. He was pretty well-connected in his career and we had a few friends in common. I had a problem though: I had spoken with him only once on the phone — for a project I was putting together at a place I haven’t worked at for three years. I’ve never met him in real life and really know nothing about him.

     

    I declined the request. But that’s just me. Someone else might have accepted it. Our interpretations of what’s personal, what’s professional, what we share, and who we let into our worlds have gotten fuzzy because of social media. Millennial Branding found that Generation Y is happy to blur those lines — they use Facebook as an extension of their professional life. For some people, that can cause problems when you’re sharing information about your personal life and forget that the colleague in the next cubicle is watching every social move you make.

     

    I present Constant Contact’s social media webinars and frequently get questions from attendees on how to separate the personal from the professional in this public space. One solution is to create a personal social media policy for each of your profiles. Look at your social networks and decide: What do you use this space for? Who do you want to let in? Think about the things you talk about on each social network — do you really want your potential new friends or followers to know those details? Do you want to know theirs? Here’s my personal social media policy:

     

    • Facebook is for people I’ve met and have some sort of relationship with in real life. I share what’s going on in my life, and I’m interested in what’s going on in theirs. My Facebook policy isn’t much different from most people, according to a recent Nielsen study. They found that 82% of Facebook users add friends because they’re people they know in real life, and 41% of people unfriend people because they don’t know them very well.

     

    • LinkedIn is for people I’ve worked with and personal friends who I haven’t worked with. I admire their skills and accomplishments, and I can go to them to brainstorm or discover new marketing tools and tips.

     

    • Twitter is for anyone; my Twitter door is open to all who follow me. I use Twitter to discover what’s going on in social media marketing and I like to share the interesting things I find.

     

    Another option is to clean up your social networks. It’s OK to create a Facebook Page or a LinkedIn group and send a message to your clients on your personal page: Ask them to join you there. Take advantage of the tools available on Facebook — change your privacy settings to reflect how public or private you want to be. Create friend lists and choose which lists can see which posts. Look at your LinkedIn settings and choose who has access to your activity feed, who can send you messages, and who can send you invitations. Do you want a public or private Twitter account? You canchange your settings to make your tweets private; Twitter calls these protected tweets.

     

    Social media is as public or as private as you want it to be. You have control; find the privacy settings you’re comfortable with and surround yourself with friends and followers that you trust.
