Winter view of Parrsboro, Nova Scotia

This post goes under Cottage Time, although my cottage isn't winterized, so it gets shut down for the winter. It gets fairly cool here in the winter time too. Day times highs expected for this Saturday is -11°C Celsius or for my American friends, that would be about 12 degrees Fahrenheit.

This photo below was taken from a web cam in Parrsboro, about 25 miles west of my cottage in a town called Parrsboro. The website it was posted to can be found here, where this and other local web cams can be found. You can click the image for a larger view.

Dr. Maurice Ralph Hilleman, father of Vaccinology, issues warning about Vaccines

doc-lie-featuredMaurice Ralph Hilleman (August 30, 1919 – April 11, 2005) was an American microbiologist who specialized in vaccinology and developed over 36 vaccines, more than any other scientist. Of the 14 vaccines routinely recommended in current vaccine schedules, he developed eight: those for measles, mumps, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, chickenpox, meningitis, pneumonia and Haemophilus influenzae bacteria.  He also played a role in the discovery of the cold-producing adenoviruses, the hepatitis viruses, and the cancer-causing virus SV40.

Dr. Adel F. Mahmoud, president of Merck Vaccines, where he worked said, "His work has saved literally millions of lives and has protected many millions more from disease."

Despite all of the accolades he received for his medical breakthroughs, he volunteered the information that some of the vaccines released to the public were not thoroughly tested, and it was discovered later on that some of these had the potential to make millions of others sick and diseased.

In a controversial documentary, In Lies We Trust, produced by "World Leading Intellectual" and drug cartel critic, Sir Leonard George Horowitz, it exposes officials, corporations, and American intelligence agencies for historic evil-doing. In part 14 of 16, we see an interview with Dr. Hilleman, who talks about what they discovered.

Although Horowitz has been criticised for spreading conspiracy theories, he has written more than 80 articles and scientific reports, and the best-selling book Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola - Nature, Accident or Genocide? His latest book is Gulf War Syndrome: The Spreading Epidemic Cover-Up. Dr. Horowitz received a doctorate in dentistry from Tufts University and a Master of Public Health from Harvard University. Regardless of his political opponents who try to discredit his work, higher learning institutes acknowledge him.

In September of 2009, about a month or so before the North America medical community started distributing the H1N1 vaccine, he issued an urgent warning in his newsletter. In it, he says:

I am a Harvard-trained expert in the fields discussed herein. You need to know that: 1) You are being lied to by our government and media; 2) The H1N1 vaccines are not safe and not proven effective; 3) There are GROSS conflicting financial interests among those telling you to get vaccinated; and 4) This entire vaccination campaign has more to do with profit, politics, and population control than meets the eye.

If you review the records of the 2009 H1N1 “outbreak” and vaccination campaign, you will conclude the facts prove fraud, official malfeasance, organized crime, and genocide operating under the guise of “public health” within a trust organization established by David Rockefeller called “Partnership for New York City” involving the U.S. Federal Government.

This subject is a matter of extreme urgency, threatening national security, thus demanding the immediate scrutiny of lawmakers, justice department officials, and you.

It is a well-established fact that “outbreaks” have been “laboratory sourced.” The 1977 outbreak of “swine flu”—extinct for twenty years—suddenly re-emerged following the suspicious unexplained 1976 outbreak at Fort Dix, New Jersey of this strain. The subsequent deadly swine flu vaccination program that followed this “military experiment,” was fueled by media-driven fear. The “outbreak” came from a refrigerator according to experts published in the New England Journal of Medicine (July 16, 2009;Vol.361:279-285) and elsewhere. (See EXHIBIT 1 in “The Affidavit” at FLUscam.com).

The Affidavit, he speaks of can be viewed online here. You can also view the warning found in his September 2009 newsletter in pdf format here. If you would like to watch all 16 segments of In Lies We Trust, you can fine them all on YouTube by clicking here.

If you downloaded the free pdf file I suggested in a post on January 10th, titled Vaccines: Get the FULL Story, you will see that it says, "known vaccine side effects, documented in medical literature... include ear infection..."

Makes me wonder...

My 80 year old mother and I have both had the flu shot, regularly the last few years and have both come down with a recurring ear infection that sometimes spreads to the eyes. I've been to the doctor a couple of times about it, and I think she has been there three times. The doctors can't explain it. Assuming we have some similarities in our genetic makeup, perhaps we are experiencing the same adverse condition as a result of the vaccine. Think I'll take a pass on the vaccine next year.

Jodie Foster and The Partridge Family

Jodie Foster shocked a lot of people last night when she confirmed long-running speculation that she is gay by coming out at the Golden Globes awards on Sunday, but joked she wouldn't be holding a news conference to discuss her private life. You can read more about it here if you missed it.

It really doesn't matter to me... she didn't have a chance with me anyway...

She certainly has been a talented actress for many years. For those of us who are 50+, you may recall catching her on The Partridge Family when she was just a little girl. This is cute!

Now Susan Dey, on the other hand, was the reason I watched Partridge Family.  Yes, and some of their tunes were catchy too. If this bring back memories for you too, you can find the complete CD videos of their various years on TV here.

Self Employed Over 50 and Entrepreneur Over 50 Are Not The Same Thing

By George H Schofield

age-featuredAs more and more baby boomers retire, they are immediately starting their own business or coming out of a short leave retirement to launch their own ventures. According to the Labor Department baby boomers account for 54% of self-employed workers and entrepreneurs, up from 48.5% in 2000.

My wife and I were recently attending a panel discussion of six entrepreneurs (women and men) at a university near our home. Each had started at least one successful business. Three interviewers sat to the side, asking questions of the panelists.

The audience was people between 45 and 65. Many of them have been successfully employed their entire work lives but are now unemployed or underemployed and will never find comparable jobs or careers as employees again.

Yet they will need income streams and meaningful work for more years than they had expected.

This is from the potent combination of the economic earthquake, extended life spans, and remaining productive years. Self-employment will have to be part of the answer for many. Creative entrepreneurship will be the solution for some.

Audience members, heedless of the interviewers' attempts to control the program, started lining up behind the floor microphone. The very first speaker from the floor stopped the show:

"How do I become one of you?", the lady asked, "I'm a retired educator. I'm still pretty smart. I'm afraid of losing the little bit of capital I have. You all seem like highly educated, qualified people who know what you are doing. I'm surrounded by "Nay Sayers" but am ready to take a plunge anyway."

The auditorium fell silent.

Finally one of the women on the panel leaned forward and said softly, "My dear, you may have mistaken us for people who are in control at all moments and who immediately know what to do when reality veers away from our plan."

The truth is we're all inventing it as we go. We all have expertise, passion, and great ideas. We're seizing the moment as well as the opportunity. This isn't like when you were a teacher and each day was bounded by a pre-determined lesson plan.

Being an entrepreneur is messy, wild, hard work. It's full of passion and the unknown. We translate into an altered state of oscillation. You don't have to be young to do this. It's about as far from having a regular job as you can get.

We've left the era of knowing in advance and entered the era of inventing it 1 day and 1 year at a time. There is common sense and tenacity and commitment and belief in ourselves. It isn't for everyone but it is for us for the foreseeable future. There are no guarantees and no map. If you want it you'll have to invent it and then invent it some more. You'll have to find the right people and build it together.

George Schofield, PhD has over 40 years of expertise and experience in successful aging, lifelong development, and extended employment -- and how these intersect and affect individuals, employees and businesses. He is a innovator and thought leader on employment over 50, personal development for people over 50, business creation for entrepreneurs over 50, and organizational transformation.

Dr. Schofield is a speaker, aging expert, consultant, futurist, entrepreneur, and the author of After 50 It's Up to Us, Developing The Skills and Agility We'll Need.
