From Wall Street to Skank Street
By Joe Bageant
The “real” economy as most of us experience it, is stretched out dead as a day old codfish down there on Main Street. And all Obama or any other politician stewed in the super-capitalist ethos can do is pump money into the banks, and then beg the bankers to come out of their gilded lairs and trickle on the corpse. That’s the problem with capitalism — capitalists.

The Art of Corporate Mind Control
5 Minute Video

Obesity: The Killer Combination of Salt, Fat And Sugar
Eating them is changing our minds as well as bodies
By David A Kessler
Sugar, fat and salt make a food compelling. They stimulate neurons, cells that trigger the brain’s reward system and release dopamine, a chemical that motivates our behaviour and makes us want to eat more. Many of us have what’s called a “bliss point”, at which we get the greatest pleasure from sugar, fat or salt. Combined in the right way, they make a product indulgent, high in “hedonic value”.
