Common vitamin shop mineral PROVEN to CURE colds!

 On the first day of spring, the northeast was hit with yet ANOTHER big winter storm. Folks who expected to be outside sniffing the first flowers were instead cooped up inside, sniffling with yet another winter cold.

 All the know-it-alls will tell you that the common cold is like the bad weather -- the only thing you can do is hide under the covers and wait for it to go away.

 Well, friend, I can't do anything about that weather, but I can do plenty about that cold, because despite what you've been told there IS a cure.

 And it's a common mineral you can find in any old vitamin shop.

 It's zinc, and new research proves again that it works, but only if you get the right dose.

 Take 75-80 mg per day at that first sign of the cold -- the first sniffle... the beginning of the cough... or that irritating dry patch in the back of your throat -- and your cold could be gone in no time.

 One new analysis finds this dose of zinc will cut the duration of everything that makes the cold so lousy. It'll shorten aches by 54 percent, coughs by 46 percent nasal congestion by 37 percent, runny nose by 34 percent and a sore throat by a third.

 The best form of zinc for beating the cold is the lozenge. Don't bite them, instead let them dissolve slowly in your mouth so the zinc ions can build up and attack the virus in the throat.

 The downside is that lozenges come only in low doses. The solution isn't to put a dozen of them into your mouth at once, but to take them throughout the day so the zinc is always present.

 Keep at it, and you'll ready to head back out in no time... assuming the weather cooperates.

 Bringing you in from the cold,

 William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.

The warmer it gets the more ice breakers we need

Demand for ice-breaking capability is only growing, as several recent cases have demonstrated, says Coast Guard chief. This warning was issued by Admiral Paul Zukunft, commandant of the USCG, in his annual state of the coastguard address on February 24.

Polar-class USCGC Polar Star (WAGB 10), a 39-year-old cutter that has been reactivated, remains the United States’ sole heavy ice breaker, with sister ship USCGC Polar Sea laid up in disrepair. The 16,000-tonne medium ice breaker USCGC Healy is also in service.

The Polar Star in mid-February steamed 900 miles and broke through 150 miles of ice to rescue a 207-ft fishing vessel, Antarctic Chieftan, that had become stranded in the southern polar region, Adm Zukunft pointed out.

“What concerns me even more,” said Adm Zukunft, “is that the United States has no rescue capability whatsoever had it been Polar Star who suffered a catastrophic [mechanical] casualty and become beset in ice.”

This is freedom?

“NOAA is desperate to hide their data tampering, and is taking a new tack to defeat FOIA (freedom of information) requests,” says stevengoddard.com. “(We’ve) been working for almost a year to get NOAA to release their published monthly temperature data over the past couple of decades, which they overwrite in place in order to hide their ongoing manipulations.” “The data should be kept in a simple file structure like the NOAA drought data, and it should require no more than 10 seconds for me to recover it online. Instead, they want a quarter of a million dollars, due on Monday. “We estimate that the cost to search for responsive records will be approximately $262,000. “If payment or other communication is not received by March 24, 2015, your FOIA request will be considered “closed.” “There must be something very incriminating in that data.” See: Freedom Isn’t Free “Please pass this on to any and all freedom loving groups,” says reader Gale Combs. “This is highway robbery!!! Not to mention it effectively keeps Main Street from ever doing a FOIA request by setting the financial bar way too high for the ordinary Joe.” This is (supposedly) NOAA’s Mission: Science, Service, and Stewardship. To understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans, and coasts, To share that knowledge and information with others, and To conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources. http://www.noaa.gov/about-noaa.html “We citizens have paid billions for this information,” says Gale. “If it is not readily available then it is about time to DEFUND NOAA and fire the incompetent employees!” Continue reading

BBC Less Tolerant of Climate Skeptic Than of Pedophile

Jeremy Clarkson, host of the BBC’s most popular show, Top Gear, with an audience of 350 million worldwide, has just been fired by the BBC. He was hated by the high priests of political correctness and global warming at the BBC. He was also slandered by a BBC source who compared him to pedophile Jimmy Savile. Seems they couldn’t tolerate the merry prankster in their midst like they could the pedophile.
