Staying Motivated and Balanced 

Rethinking exercise: Replace punishing workouts with movement that makes you happy,

Though the above article targets older women, this is an issue for all humans, and involves the "pain-pleasure" balance of "engagement."

This comes down to a "meaning of life" issue for each individual. What degree of pain in the pain-pleasure balance is acceptable? 

I must switch our attention to the time and consistancy factors. Practices, or exercises that were once painful and difficult becomes stimulating-even necessary-as our experience evolves as we spend more time doing it. What we thought difficult or even impossible becomes achievable if we approach it properly.


Pain & Pleasure & High Sierra Backpacking

Dept. of Our Population & Planet are Vast Test Subjects: 
Gender and Liver Confusion

Early-life BPA exposure reprograms gene expression linked to fatty liver disease,

"Because these endocrine disruptors are ubiquitous in the environment, a large portion of the population may be affected by developmental reprogramming."

No Kidding? Flooding our environment with "endocrine disruptors" has "reprogrammed" kid's development? Wow, I wonder what that would do to a vast population...

 Ultimately I believe we are seeing the results of this particular "experiment" bringing the rise of a tremendous amount of gender confusion, the “metorsexual,”and uni-gender bathrooms, so far.


Test Results Coming in After Public Exposure:

Exposure to BPA substitute, BPS, multiplies breast cancer cells,

"Hopes for a safer..BPA" coming to naught as testing AFTER PUBLIC DEPLOYMENT shows BPS is also a powerful endocrine disruptor. Who would have THUNK that? 

Perhaps we should test these chemicals BEFORE we test them on the public? No, that would get in the way of profits, and those profits are what bribes our politicans, who keep the "profits" flowing by preventing rational safety regulation in all aspects of American life.

Crushing your lives is very, very profitable. This bribery and corruption applies in all aspects of "politics," as we can clearly see from the article below, "our" politicians and their corporate-sponsored political parties are for sale to the highest bidder:


How to buy the Influence to Legally Kill your Kid, and use the population as "test subjects:"

How $3 million in political donations stands in the way of justice for this boy's death
Sac Bee, April 28, 2017.

This is exactly the same process developers and ag interests to make us subsidize their bad dams, that the chemical companies used to poison our children, and that has driven the "Corporate Growth Machine of Death" that has stripped man and Nature bare-ass naked in California.

Yup, that's exactly the same machine of greed and corruption at work for all the worse people, interests, and institutions in our country...

It is clear we require a new Environmental Movement that can deal with the scope and depth of our corruption problem that drives our "environmental" problems.
