"Human beings have a huge propensity for good, and yet a capacity for evil", Queen Elizabeth's 2018 speech


"Even with the most deeply held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding."

"Some cultures believe a long life brings wisdom. I'd like to think so. Perhaps, part of that wisdom is to recognize some of life's baffling paradoxes such as the way human beings have a huge propensity for good, and yet a capacity for evil."

Queen Elizabeth Reflects on the Royal Family's 'Busy: as well as the births of her two great-grandchildren, Prince Louis and Lena Tindall, and Prince Charles's 70th birthday. She also called out the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, remembering her father's time in the military and honoring all of those who serve. But perhaps most impactful was the Queen's plea for kindness and respect in our modern society.
"Even with the most deeply held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding," she said.
"Even the power of faith which frequently inspires great generosity and self-sacrifice can fall victim to tribalism. But through the many changes I have seen over the years: faith, family, and friendship have been not only a constant for me, but a source of personal comfort and reassurance."

For many, the service of 'Nine Lessons and Carols' from King's College Cambridge is when Christmas begins. Listened to by millions of people around the world it starts with a chorister singing the first verse of "Once in Royal David’s City."  read more »

Ben Franklin was anti-debt to form Society of the Free and Easy for virtuous individuals: free of debt therefore easy in spirit

(quote)

10 of Benjamin Franklin’s Lesser-Known Feats of Awesomeness
4. HE WAS NO DEBTOR.
Franklin was terrified of debt and viewed it as similar to slavery because he believed that, through the acquisition of debt, man essentially sold his own freedom. He was so anti-debt that he often spoke (seriously) about forming an international organization called The Society of the Free and Easy for virtuous individuals who, among other things, were free of debt and, therefore, easy in spirit.

Simon Cowell's mobile phone has been turned off for 10 months - and "it has absolutely made him happier"

(quote)
Simon Cowell confessed he switched off for the sake of his mental health
In an astonishing confession, the television mogul revealed he had become so distracted and irritated by his phone that he made himself uncontactable for the sake of his mental health and happiness.

He told The Mail on Sunday: 'I literally have not been on my phone for ten months.

'The difference it made was that I became more aware of the people around me and way more focused.

'The thing I get irritated with is when you have a meeting everyone's on their phone - and I was probably in that place too. You can't concentrate.

'It has been so good for my mental health. It's a very strange experience but it really is good for you and it has absolutely made me happier.'

Nature's Magic: 14 most effective natural antibiotics

(quote)

top 14 most effective natural antibiotics - provided by nature, which efficiently treat the issue, and does not cause other damage to the body

Apple-Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid which effectively fights off viruses, fungi, and bacteria. It destroys germs that attack the throat and absorbs the toxins and germs from the surrounding tissues.

Additionally, it causes acetolysis, which is a condition in which it breaks down toxic residue and prevents further damage.

Garlic

This potent vegetable is an excellent antibiotic but does not destroy healthy bacteria. Apart from it, it has strong antifungal, antiviral, and anti-parasitic properties.

Its regular use, even in small amounts, effectively treat various health issues, including Candida overgrowth, chronic sinus infections, chronic diarrhea, genital herpes, high blood pressure, diabetes, impotence, high cholesterol levels, allergies, toothache, cold, flu, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.

Hence, when it comes to natural remedies, garlic is definitely one of the miracles we prayed for!

Ginger

Ginger has been traditionally used as a powerful remedy for flu and colds, but it has been found that its consumption raises the body temperature and leads to sweating. When we are sweating, our body releases a chemical which destroys microbes.

Onions

Onions have similar properties as garlic, and their consumption soothes pain, boosts the circulation, and reduces inflammation. They have also been found to act as an herbal analgesic, and anti-inflammatory, which provide great relief in the case of a persistent cough, flu, and colds.

Queen bans plastic. Man made pollution and it bites back: seafood eaters ingest 11,000 pieces of microplastic each year

(quote)

Queen Elizabeth II is banning plastic straws and bottles across the royal estates.
The Telegraph reported that the monarch is behind Buckingham Palace's plans to phase out single-use plastics from public cafes, royal residences and staff dining rooms. Royal caterers will instead use china plates and glasses or recyclable paper cups. Takeaway food from the Royal Collection cafes must be made of compostable or biodegradable packaging.

British lawmakers are also urging for more action to fight plastic pollution. A ban on microbeads came into force in Britain last month. In 2015, a 5p (5 British pennies) fee was introduced on plastic carrier bags, which led to 9 billion fewer bags being used. Many businesses in the UK are getting on board with cutting out plastics. Starbucks recently introduced a 5p disposable cup charge in 20 to 25 central London outlets to encourage customers to switch to reusable cups. And Iceland Foods, a major UK supermarket chain specializing in frozen food, announced that it will eliminate plastic packaging from its own brand of products by the end of 2023.

The Queen was reportedly inspired to take action after working with famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough on a conservation documentary about wildlife in the Commonwealth. Attenborough's "Blue Planet II" documentary that aired last year highlighted the devastating effects of plastic on our oceans and marine life.

May is US National Bike Month: 61.6% increase in bicycle commuting from 2000 to 2012; "preventative medicine", scientists find

(quote)

The number of bicyclists is growing rapidly from coast to coast. The National Household Travel Survey showed that the number of trips made by bicycle in the U.S. more than doubled from 1.7 billion in 2001 to 4 billion in 2009.
For bicyclists of all stripes, there's nothing like Bike to Work Day (BTWD), an annual celebration of active transportation. Thanks, in part, to encouragement efforts like BTWD, the number of bike commuters is on the rise, as well — especially in Bicycle Friendly Communities (BFC). From 2000 to 2013, bicycle commuting rates in large BFCs increased 105% — far above the national average of 62% and more than double the rate in non-BFCs (31%).

According to the ACS, in 2012 about .64% of commutes are made by bicycle, which represents an almost 10% increase from 2011. This is the largest year-on-year increase since 2007-2008, showing that people are choosing to use their bicycles for transportation not just in response to economic crisis, but because bicycles are leading the way to recovery. In total, there were 864,883 bike commuters in 2012.
Since 2000, ACS data shows a 61.6% increase in bicycle commuting.  read more »
