If there is one plant image that has come to epitomise herbal medicine and good health in the last two decades, it would be the purple cone flower of echinacea. Splashed on supplements, chemist walls, natural healing centres.

It's prominence is well-deserved offering a range of potent medicines and a strong alternative to pharmaceutical antibiotics for Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and tuberculosis. In our ever-escalating chemical arms race with germs, we look set to come off as the losers. Each year seems to see the mass-outbreak of drug-resistant bacteria and viruses that modern medicine just can't seem to nail. Plants, especially herbs, offer our greatest hope. So why is it that plant therapies can work where the pharnmaceutical companies are failing? Complexity in nature, is a fine thing.

Recent studies show the face of home schooling is changing, as online tools and better curricula make it easier for parents seeking a top-notch education for their children to make the leap.

Home schooling has experienced massive growth in the United States for more than a decade. The face of the home-education movement has also changed. Fewer parents now attribute the need to give religious instruction as the driving motivation behind their choice, with more parents such as Banks citing home schooling's educational benefits as the reason they are turning to the nontraditional method.

I have ADHD and so does the Hippy Hubby. It has been a reality for me my entire life. My mom did a good job at trying to avoid diet triggers and shoved me outside to play as much as possible, but sometimes it can still be very difficult.

I have spent the last 9 months developing this aromatherapy blend so that it would be helpful to every member of my attention deficit, hyperactive clan. After doing as much research as I could, as well as testing out my creations on myself and the rest of my hyperactive clan, I have developed this aromatherapy blend, Calm Your Squirrel!

Former Central Intelligence Agency Director R. James Woolsey warned lawmakers that natural and manmade electromagnetic pulses present an "existential threat to the American people" and accused congressional and White House officials.

Testifying before the Senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee, Woolsey, who served two years under President Bill Clinton, warned that EMP is "a clear and present danger and that something must be done to protect the electric grid and other life sustaining critical infrastructures - immediately."

The number of homeschooled children in the US has soared over the past decade, and homeschooling organizations are anticipating more growth.

The U.S. Department of Education celebrated the court's same-sex marriage ruling with the militant LGBT rainbow in its Facebook profile picture, a sign that even more of the LGBT activist agenda will likely be finding its way into public school classrooms and curricula. "Public schools may be forced to be philosophically compliant with this decision," wrote Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) founder and chairman Mike Farris on the national homeschooling organization's website. "Children will be taught that there is only one way to view marriage and the family."

When I first started homeschooling, I really didn't appreciate the difference in two totally different approaches to education, which are homeschooling and public school at home.

Even coming from a family where my mother homeschooled my youngest sister, my vision of homeschooling was very narrow. Like a lot of new homeschoolers, I too just copied the public school system in everything from keeping a similar schedule, to curriculum selection and yes even testing my first child, Mr. Senior 2013.

In a study highlighted in California Childen Are Contaminated, researchers analyzed the diets of California children ages two through seven to determine the cancer and non-cancer health effects from food contaminant exposures.

It turns out food may be the primary route of exposure to toxic heavy metals, persistent pollutants, and pesticides. "Though food-borne toxic contaminants are a concern for all ages, they are of greatest concern for children, who are disproportionately impacted because they're still developing and have greater intake of food and fluids relative to their weight. Pediatric problems that have been linked to preventable environmental toxin exposures include cancer, asthma, lead poisoning, neurobehavioral disorders, learning and developmental disabilities, and birth defects."

Though there are certainly many parts to this unfolding story, the largest piece of the puzzle by far still goes completely unacknowledged by most of the scientific community and all of the main stream media/corporate/military/industrial complex.

The massive elephant in the room has been, and still is, "stratospheric aerosol geoengineering" (SAG), AKA "solar radiation management" (SRM). A primary stated goal of the geoengineering programs is to provide a "solar shield" to slow "runaway climate change" by spraying tens of millions of tons of highly toxic metal nano particulates (a nanometer is 1/1,000,000,000 of a meter) into the atmosphere from jet aircraft. Is the spraying only for solar radiation management? Based on available data, there are a number of known objectives including but not limited to SRM, weather warfare, over the horizon radar enhancement, controlling food production, and probable biological testing. There are likely many more aspects and agendas related to the atmospheric spraying which we can not yet know.
