    https://youtu.be/95xsAJ5xePY RT America 5/23/19

    During meetings with the owners in Florida this week, the NFL Players Association have reached an agreement to have the league study alternative therapies for pain management.

    For years the players have advocated for marijuana as a remedy but it remains on the banned substance list.

    A newly formed committee specifically designed to focus on health and wellness could supply research to support the use of the drug for players. RT America’s Steve Christakos joins Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss.

    July 21, 2010Philanthropic Pledge
    David RockefellerPhilanthropists, at their best, try to address serious societal problems and occasionally come up with innovations that lead to enduring change. In the end, success requires much more than financial resources, although money is, of course, essential. Good ideas are just as important; otherwise one risks wasting both the funds and the opportunity. Effective philanthropy also requires patience — patience to deal with unexpected obstacles; patience to wait for the first, slight stirrings of change; and patience to listen to the insights and ideas of others.For five generations, my family has experienced the real satisfaction and pleasure of philanthropy. Our engagement has helped to create a strong group of institutions, including the University of Chicago, The Rockefeller University, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. The practice of philanthropy also has enabled many of us to become personally involved in efforts to address critical global challenges such as poverty, health, sustainable development, and environmental degradation. Our family continues to be united in the belief that those who have benefited the most from our nation's economic system have a special responsibility to give back to our society in meaningful ways.Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates share this belief and have challenged others to pledge half their assets to philanthropy during their lifetime or at their death. I am pleased to say this has long been my intent and my practice, and I am delighted to have been asked to participate in this important initiative. I hope that others will accept this challenge—and opportunity—and will join us in this worthwhile endeavor.I also hope that our efforts to expand the scope of philanthropy as individuals, in collaboration with others, and in ways that include not only financial resources but innovative ideas and patience, will be part of the gift we all bequeath to the future.

  • WATCH: House Democrats Hold Historic Second Hearing on Medicare for All
    National Nurses United called it "another step towards passing this vital piece of legislation."

    After Democrats held the first-ever congressional hearing on Medicare for All last month, the House Budget Committee on Wednesday morning invited federal officials to testify at an historic second hearing on the costs replacing the nation's current for-profit system with one that guarantees healthcare as a right for all Americans.

    Watch: https://youtu.be/__jegwENOes

    Unlike the hearing in April in the House Rules Committee, Wednesday's hearing did not feature outside experts or activists. Instead, all three witnesses are officials from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the federal agency that provides budget and economic information to Congress.

    Given the hearing's focus on a recent CBO analysis, Susannah Luthi highlighted "five things to listen for as Republicans look for points for 2020 campaign messaging and Democrats try to keep the focus on how to close the coverage gap that persists despite the Affordable Care Act" in an article for Modern Healthcare: cost, hospital ownership, private insurance, rates, and limiting utilization.

    The hearing's restrictive witness list did not stop advocates of the Medicare for All Act of 2019 (H.R. 1384)—introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) in February—from showing their support. On Tuesday, 209 economists signed a public statement which says in part, "the time is now to create a universal, single-payer, Medicare for All healthcare system in the United States."

    Jean Ross, Zenei Cortez, and Deborah Burger—co-presidents of National Nurses United, the group that shared the economists' statement—welcomed the hearing on Wednesday, calling it "another step towards passing this vital piece of legislation."

    The CBO's report on the bill, the nurses said in a statement, "shows that a Medicare for All system can be designed and implemented in the United States in a way where every man, woman, and child can have guaranteed, safe, therapeutic healthcare and that the country can save trillions of dollars in the process."

    Other backers of Jayapal's bill drew attention to the 12 Democratic lawmakers on the committee who have not yet signaled their support for the measure, urging their constituents to put pressure on their elected representatives. As former congressional candidate Amy Vilela put it, "It's time for bold leadership—lives depend on it!"

  • 'A Small Tax on Wall Street to Make Big Change': Bernie Sanders and Barbara Lee Introduce New Financial Transaction Tax
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/05/22/small-tax-wall-street-make-big-change-bernie-sanders-and-barbara-lee-introduce-new
    Eoin Higgins, staff writer

    Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Barbara Lee unveiled legislation on Wednesday that will fractionally tax Wall Street transactions to produce trillions of dollars in public revenue.

    The Inclusive Prosperity Act (pdf) was introduced in the Senate by Sanders, an Independent who caucuses with Democrats, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), and in the House by Lee, a Democrat from California, and a dozen of her colleagues.

    "Wall Street gets away with no taxes, even when conducting high-risk financial transactions," Lee said in a statement.

    "This has to stop. It's past time to make sure Wall Street pays their fair share so that we can provide funding for things that make us a better nation like jobs, housing, infrastructure, and college education."

    The tax is a tiny levy on the hundreds of billions of transactions on Wall Street each day.

    According to a statement from Sanders's office:

    The legislation sets different rates on stocks, bonds, and derivatives based on the existing transaction costs in each market—0.5 percent for stocks, 0.1 percent for bonds, and 0.005 for derivatives.

    This more targeted approach roughly equalizes the increase in transaction costs across securities due to the tax and thus reduces the economic distortions and tax avoidance possibilities created by it.

    A number of groups signed onto the measure as well, citing the potential for higher tax revenues that could be spent on social programs as well as a sense of moral justice that the tax would bring.

    "Nurses know that economic inequality and poor health go hand in hand," said Jean Ross, president of National Nurses United.

    "Every day, we see people who come into our emergency rooms in medical crisis because they went without preventative care or medicine because they couldn't afford it.

    This small tax on Wall Street will improve the lives of millions of people by funding Medicare for All, public college for all, critical environmental and climate change mitigation programs, job creation, housing assistance, and HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs."

    Wall Street speculation has caused enough harm, said the Take on Wall Street campaign's Luísa Galvão.

    "Working families pay sales taxes on almost everything from a pair of shoes to a can of soup, yet Wall Street traders aren't subject to taxes when they buy or sell financial products," Galvão said.

    "In fact, not only is Wall Street being allowed to trade tax-free, they are skimming off profit from the real economy by using high-speed, algorithm-based trading which has no social value."

    With all the problems in the world, not the least of which is the ongoing climate catastrophe, a potential solution for funding solutions can't be ignored, said Food and Water Watch's Climate and Energy program director Mitch Jones.

    "The Inclusive Prosperity Act is essential," said Jones. "It's a small tax on Wall Street to make big change on Main Street."

    In a statement, Sanders put the bill in the context of his longstanding fight for everyday Americans and against the rich.

    "It is long past time for Congress to rein in the recklessness of Wall Street billionaires and build an economy that works for all Americans," said Sanders.

    Sanders and Lee were joined at the Capitol Wednesday afternoon by supporters.

  • Judging each other.... Yes many people love to compare and compete with each other.

    Its like a measurement of who is doing better then who. To me its an illness. I use to see it everywhere and i'm sure it still goes on...

    I don't see many people that much any more by choice... I am very selective in who i want around me these days. I don't have the time of day for downers, such as... complainers, negative talk about people places and things etc...

    I have learned allot from them, and one important lesson i learned, is to stay the heck away from them by NOT giving them the attention, and attract positive optimistic people into my energy field purposely instead, because its much more liberating, fun, and inspiring to me, and you want to stay in that vibrational frequency as long as you can.

    That does NOT mean i do not have compassion for people who are having a rough time in their lives, I do... I just wont focus my energy there to long because that energy can become contagious. You want to keep your energy levels as high as you can without judging anyone or anything.... Your personal experiences and your health, depends on it.

    If you are feeling great and energetic by helping anyone in need, and your energy levels are high as a result because of what you are doing, then that is a good thing... If you are feeling drained instead, then i suppose you understand my message here.
