Solutions for Human Slavery and Child Trafficking

Haiti is a small nation which has been devastated about 10 years ago by a terrible earthquake. Thousands of people were left homeless, families lost parents and children across all generations, homes were destroyed and businesses wiped out. In a nation that was already poor such an event is a catastrophe.

Hospitals, telecommunications centres, water supplies, shelter are all badly affected in such events. Recovery is already hard but when surrounded by ocean on all sides and the whole community is affected, finding resources to bring about improvement is doubly difficult.

With no infrastructure to start the recovery, outside help was needed esoecially while people were still in shock from the terrifying experience of the strong earthquake and the lost of livelihoods, loved ones and basic necessities for survival. After a server earthquake, the aftershocks go on for days and days. They can be as strong as a new earthquake, bringing more fear to the survivors and any fresh damage to those few structures still standing.

Humanitarian aid poured in from around the world, to help the people of Haiti recover from this devastating event. Private individuals donated small amounts to charities and relief organisations, while some larger companies and organisations gave greatly of time, personnel and medical supplies, food and clothing and urgently needed materials. The mainstream volunteer groups and charities like the Red Cross, Save The Children, Medecins Sans Frontier were there. Other international bodies such as the United Nations, the World Health Organisation assisted. Some nations such as Cuba sent over 200 doctors. Larger nations such as USA or the EU gave more in the way of support, funds, personnel and supplies. Many famous celebrities made large personal donations while many governments also contributed financially. John Travolta personally flew his private plane bringing 6 tons of food and medical supplies, along with medical personnel and ministers.

But in the midst of all the confusion it was found that some unscrupulous people took advantage of the disorder and distress to exploit the situation. They used it to abduct children for their child trafficking ends. These stories are covered elsewhere, shocking as it may seek, child traffickers used the opportunity to smuggle children out of the country.

So what can be done about it?

Operation Toussaint tells the story of how one man, Tim Ballard, became involved in people smuggling. He went to Haiti to investigate and save children who were being trafficked. Tim started an organisation called the The Underground Railway.

Another person’s answer was to educate people about Human Rights.

After World War II, the united Nations put together a document called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its purpose was to help prevent further outbreaks of war and injustice, to better conditions around the world.
Dr Mary Shuttleworth took this Universal Declaration of Human Rights. She travel the world lecturing and teaching people about their rights.

Modern Day Slavery

Human Trafficking is one of the most serious abuses of the modern world.

Human trafficking — for modern slavery, sex trafficking. for child pornography and pedophilia, and for organ harvesting, is the second most lucrative black market after drugs. At its current rate of expansion, it will soon supercede even drugs trafficking. It has long been known about in certain spheres. But is not a topic widely discussed in the mainstream media. It affects societies at too many levels and too many levels are involved.

A recent telelevision series called “McMafia” gave a fictionalised account how the business model works. And a business model it is indeed. One of the major changes in this type of black market activity is the sophisticated way that has developed into a highly professional, highly co-ordinated, well planned operation working on global scale. It shows how the criminal activity stretches around the world, on a kind of franchise model, involving players from around the world. London, Moscow, South America, Israel, India.

The television series was inspired by a book called McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld by journalist Misha Glenny. While it is fictionalised, it is based on hard hitting factual research.
One of the hallmarks of the Trump presidency is President Trump’s intention to end human trafficking, particularly child trafficking. To that end, he has signed many Executive Orders and taken effective action both within the United States of America and in co-operation with other agencies and governments of other countries around the world.

Over the last few years, we have many more arrests of pedophile rings and criminal rings. Under the lockdown restrictions caused by Covid-19 around the world, there have opportunities for law enforcement agencies around the world to take action and catch criminal groups in countries as diverse as Germany, Australia, England, and USA. Key players have been taken out.

We live in crazy times.

For many of us, during lockdown, whatever part of the world we live in, we have had time on our hands in ways we never had before while busy earning a living, looking after the family, the job, meeting friends, worrying about things, shopping for clothes or not, depending on our budget. We have had to live quietly at home. No more gym, movies, date nights in restaurants or pubs, meet ups for coffee, play time with the kids in the park with their friends, church services and church socials or clubs and hobbies.

Amazing things came to our view. The water in the canals in Venice ran clear. Silvery fish darted here and there; dolphins swam in water where only gondolas went before.

You could hear the birds in the silence of the traffic that ran no more. The air pollution over northern Italy disappeared off the maps.

People panicked over toilet paper. Tins of sardines were rationed. Flour became more valuable than gold dust.

But as people sat at home and turned to the internet, they discovered another world hidden away behind the glossy view of glamour and glory in Hollywood, the high flyers and powerful.

Human Trafficking.

July 30 is World Day Against Human Trafficking.

What does this mean to you?

There have been a number of different Amazon courses over the last few years, one of them both high profile and high ticket,

There is another one though, that i purchased. It’s called the Proven Amazon Course put together by Jim Cockrum, internet entrepreneur and business man, best-selling author and a sincere and honest man.

I signed up for the course Jim offered and I haven’t regretted it. His is value for money. It’s not some quick brief handful of pages, full of out-of-date information. Jim exchanged in abundance. You get his Amazon selling course. And then some.

Jim adds all his new courses for free to this master course so as he develops new strategies with partners or sees new opportunities as conditions change, he makes this information available to you as well. People have paid for these individual courses by themselves when they first come out, or you can wait till they are added into the Proven Amazon Course in due course.

There is also a wonderful Facebook group where members can ask questions and there are many people with experience who will help out with their know-how as well as friendly and supportive advice. For those who want it there is the possibility of paid coaching from a team of coaches who have proven success.

And the brilliant thing is that it is scalable. So if you just need some extra income to pay for some treats for you or your family, or if you want to build it up to be your main source of income and be your own boss, or even build up a larger sized business, you will find all the ingredients here that you need.

Iodine — Could Be The Best Antiviral Agent

There are many fears about the coronavirus pandemic affecting so many countries in the world at this time.
While exploring Google for information about how to help keep myself and loved ones safe at this time, i found the following information written by a Dr Derry.

“Iodine is by far the best antibiotic,antiviral and antiseptic of all time.”
Dr. David Derry

The antiseptic properties of iodine are used to sterilize every surface and material in
hospitals. Iodine is an excellent microbicide with a broad range of action that includes almost
all of the important health-related microorganisms, such as enteric bacteria, enteric viruses,
bacterial viruses, fungi and protozoan cysts.v[v] The minimum number of iodine molecules
required to destroy one bacterium varies with the species. For H. influenzae it was calculated
to be 15000 molecules of iodine per cell. When bacteria are treated with iodine, the inorganic
phosphate up-take and oxygen consumption by the cells immediately ceases. vi[vi]
Though iodine kills all single celled organisms such as these it is not exploited for internal
use by modern day physicians to combat internal infections, which of course is a great
mistake. Dr. Derry says iodine is effective “for standard pathogens such as Staphylococcus,
but also iodine has the broadest range of action, fewest side effects and no development of
bacterial resistance.” Some doctors have reported that it is excellent for the trearment for

“Iodine is able to penetrate quickly through the cell walls of microorganisms.”

Iodine is a deadly enemy of single cell microorganisms thus it can be our best friend. Iodine
was not available to these life forms at the beginning of evolution and it was not until
seaweed concentrated it did it become involved in higher life forms. It is for this reason that
the simplest level of life cannot tolerate iodine.

Iodine kills single celled organisms by combining with the amino acids tyrosine or histidine when they are exposed to the extracellular environment. All single cells showing tyrosine on their outer cell membranes are
killed instantly by a simple chemical reaction with iodine that denatures proteins. Nature and
evolution have given us an important mechanism to control pathogenic life forms and we
should use it and trust it to protect us in ways that antibiotics can’t. As we shall see directly
below, so powerful is iodine in a protective sense that it also helps us rid the body, not only of
harmful chemicals and heavy metals, but also rids the body of abnormal cells meaning it
qualifies as an anticancer agent.

Elemental iodine is a potent germicide with a wide spectrum of activity and low toxicity to
tissues. A solution containing 50 ppm iodine kills bacteria in 1 min and spores in 15 min. It is
poorly soluble in water but readily dissolves in ethanol, which enhances its antibacterial
activity. Iodine tincture contains 2% iodine and 2.4% sodium iodide (NaI) dissolved in 50%
ethanol; it is used as a skin disinfectant. Strong iodine tincture contains 7% iodine and 5%
potassium iodide (KI) dissolved in 95% ethanol; it is more potent but also more irritating than
tincture of iodine. Iodine solution contains 2% iodine and 2.4% NaI dissolved in aqueous
solution; it is used as a nonirritant antiseptic on wounds and abrasions. Strong iodine solution
(Lugol’s solution) contains 5% iodine and 10% KI in aqueous solution.

So this information could help you with an additional tool to help you combat the coronavirus.

Wishing you good health and keep safe.

How to Get Started Online

One of the most consistent and well regarded internet marketers is Jim Cockrum. He is the author of several books and courses and different programs for making an independent living on line.

One of his earliest books is his famous “Silent Sales Machine” which has been updated and kept fresh and relevant. It is now in its 10th version.

Jim himself successfully lives the life of an online business man making an abundant living from multiple income streams on mutliple platform, including eBay and Amazon, from home, all while living the internet life-style at home with his wife and 5 children who are home-schooled.

So Jim Cockrum knows what he is talking about from personal experience. With his work ethic and desire to help others succeed, he gains huge satisfaction from helping others also achieve their freedom to pursue their own goals, give back to their communities and help others.

Jim Cockrum and his Proven Amazon Course

Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course is one of the best value courses you can invest in if you really want success on Amazon. He has built a successful business himself as a seller as well as encouraging and leading others to the success in harnessing the wealth of opportunity available on Amazon to build multiple income streams.

There are may ways to start to build your new future whether you have nothing available to invest except your time, determination and activity and Jim will give you inspiration and guidance from whatever your starting point is. .

He has built a team of like minded hard working and sincere people around him who can be relied on and trusted to help you make progress.

One thing I particularly like about Jim’s Proven Amazon Course (PAC) is that Jim is continuously develloping new strategies and then creating new courses to teach them. You can buy these new courses as standalone courses but he also will later add these courses free of charge to people who have purchased his umbrella course, PAC. I don’t know anyone else who does that.

Happy New Year to One and All

That was the decade that was.

And so we wish for a new decade where freedom rises from the conflicts and confusions of yesterday to a brighter dawn in a better world.

A new generation faces new challenges to make the world thrive and survive on a better level than we have known before — or even just to maintain existing levels in a bigger world population than the earth has ever had to sustain within living memory or anything an archaeologist can find out about.

We need to build new technologies and develop new businesses to turn our throw away waste in to resources for our survival, to unlock the hidden potential in nature’s forces all around us such as wind and wave power, geothermal heat sources, the carbon capturing possibilities of algae in the oceans, to make climate control ethical.

With these thoughts, I wish you a wonderful decade starting with 2020.

May your dreams come true.

It is a long time coming but the way forward can be worked out taking one step at a time.

There are several different platforms you can use to build an on-line business. They have different strengths and offer different potentials.

What seems to be one of the best and simplest approaches is to start where you are with what you’ve got and go to eBay. Start selling what you have and get a feel for taking a good photograph, writing a good description, finding out how to get your goods to your buyer and how to collect payment.

Ebay is much more forgiving than Amazon so it’s friendlier place to get your feet wet. Just dip your feet in and go for it.

You don’t need to look far for things to sell.

Amazon is massive and driven. So there are plenty of things to learn on your way to success. The do’s and don’t are something you need to find out and pay attention to.

There are a number of successful sellers and a number of different programs out there which you can buy into to get inside tips and guidance on how to start and grow a successful Amazon business.

Some low budget ones pack a great deal of info into a great community with fabulous support and lifetime updates so don’t disregard them because they don’t start out high-priced and think they are low value.

One of the best is the Proven Amazon Course by Jim Cockrum.

Jim is a veteran of sales, both on-line and off-line.

The Truth About Diabetes

There are many ways to conquer a disease and there are many people who are willing to give you their advice and recommendations.

One thing that it is good look at is whether the person who gives you the advice then follows it up with a list of supplements that he has patented for your use to help you best to follow his advice. It can be bona fide, but it can also be a great business model.

The story of diabetes is one such mixture of “healthy advice”and confusing recommendations.
The usual advice is to tell diabetes patients to eat frequent small meals, their basic three main meals and snacks mid morning, mid afternoon, and in the evening while watching TV or after sports at the gym, and even before bed to help you to sleep.

We call the afternoon snack afternoon tea in Britain and it is a sweet, appetising tasty affair with scones, and cakes and sandwiches and pots of sugary tea or big mugs of builders tea, lovely and strong, and a healthy doses of hobnob biscuits or chocolate digestives. Life wouldn’t be the same without these things. Afternoon tea can be served in the best place like fancy hotels in London, charming little cake shops in the quaint country villages or around the green or the football pitch after school where a can of soda and some kind of bar or bag of crisps fills the need of the hungry child.

We used to have elevenses – the mid morning snack of tea and a biscuit – now some of us are more likely to have a sweetened iced tea and a healthy bar, or a creamy smoothie, or just a plain snickers bar or a Kit-Kat biscuit with or without a sandwich or a piece of fruit. In the school yard, it’s the mid morning snack break. It used to be a small bottle of milk and a sandwich or an apple. Now it’s more likely to be a can of soda, a chocolate bar or a bag of crisps.

Then we settle down for the night with a bag or crisps or a bag of sweets or both sometimes, in front of the TV for the soaps, or the tablet for the computer games…..

It is a whole new world created by the food business.

And it is possibly the worst thing a diabetic could do, the worst advice a diabetic could follow.
It changes the whole approach of how to deal with the conditions that go to make the conditions medically lumped together under the label known as diabetes.

And that is something I am going to be writing about over the coming blogs.
