The Two Most Dangerous Foods in Most Restaurants to Order

The Two Most Dangerous Foods in Most Restaurants to Order

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • The two most dangerous foods served in most restaurants are factory farmed chicken, which is responsible for a majority of foodborne illnesses, and farmed salmon, which is among the most toxic foods on the planet
  • Three decades ago, many towns would have local fish markets that sold a wide variety of locally caught fish. Most fish markets have now been replaced by chain stores that use computerized systems to maintain a consistent supply, and this industrialization pushed aquaculture forward
  • Aquafarms are frequently imposed in locations where people are desperate for jobs. Alas, they inevitably end up destroying healthy wild fisheries in those same areas
  • While most aquafarms are located in open water, land-based operations are becoming more common, especially with the introduction of genetically engineered salmon, which are not allowed to be raised in open water due to their environmental impact, should they get free
  • As a consumer, one of the best things you can do is to locate a local community-supported fishery. You can also buy wild-caught fish online

FOOD FRAUD IS BIG BUSINESS

“The FDA inspects only 1% of the 10 million food products shipped into the US every year. That makes food fraud an easy and lucrative way for organized crime to make money.”

This report shows some specific kinds of foods that are most vulnerable to fraud and how little is done to stop it.

I Wish – I Could’a – Would’a -Should’a

I truly believe that anyone that joins our company and puts forth the effort can be a success. Everyone, I mean everyone, has access to as much training and support as they need.

Lets “cut to the chase.” I don’t want to offend anyone or scare them off from participating with our incredible company but, the reality is this: Starting a home business is not easy. It is not a job. You don’t get paid if you slack off. You don’t get paid just because you show up. Being your own boss is difficult. Not because we are too hard on ourselves but because we are too easy on ourselves.

Here you will earn based upon what you can produce and if you are not willing to grow and learn you will fail. God gave us free will. He has given us everything we need to do and have anything and everything we want. It all truly boils down to how much time and effort are willing to put into this.

Many people you and I know have given up on their dreams. They can tell you all of the reasons why they shoulda, coulda, woulda been successfulbut they are not because _________. Fill in the blank. My boss didn’t like me. I didn’t get a good education. I never got a break. Blah, Blah, Blah. Or they tell you that money isn’t important but every time you see them they are complaining about a lack of it. But I am sure they are tithing 10%. Right.

There are only two things in life. Excuses or results. And guess what? Excuses don’t count in the real world. I am not just talking about financial success. Been there, done that. I assure you, money without God and a purpose is worthless.

There are not any guarantees in life. I can’t guarantee that you will be a success here. Sure we have a money back guarantee but if that is going to play a major role in your decision to try this, then I strongly encourage you not to participate. If you are already thinking about how you can get out of this than you shouldn’t get in.

I am not, I repeat, I am not looking for everyone.

  • I want people who are really looking for something that could change their lives.
  • I want people who have been praying for an opportunity like this.
  • I want people who find all of the reasons why they think this will work and not why they think it won’t.

It is working. We paid out over a million dollars to the people involved with us last year. The opportunity is exactly the same for every person that gets involved, so the only true variable is the person joining and not the opportunity itself.

We have been around for decades and I will assure you that you are going to be exposed to us many times in the future. We believe that in five years we will be a household name.

Over the next few months we will be expanding our product line. There is not a limit to how big we can get. Go look around the internet, there is absolutely nothing like this in the business world.

Pray about this and call me. I am available to talk and answer questions.

WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?

“I’ll TRY to make it.”
“I’ll TRY to watch it.”
“I’ll TRY to…..”

THE EXCUSES

1. I Haven’t Got Time

We love to say how busy we are, working on important stuff and generally spending 29 hours a day in the office plugged into the caffeine drip.

So this excuse is really purpose made for us and it’s a doozy. Everyone will believe you because they assume you’re telling the truth.

I mean, just because you go out twice a week to drinks and stay out until midnight, sleep in on the weekends until midday and watch every episode of 6 different TV series is kind of irrelevant, right?

2. I Need to Focus on My Career
Ah the career oriented one. After all, we are on a constant curve, striving desperately towards partnership and that is our one and only goal in life – to become a partner in a firm.

Any slight deviation from that laser-like focus could derail us for years, if not decades, from achieving that goal.

You should definitely follow the same path as all the other lawyers around you. Because there is safety in numbers.

3. I Haven’t Got [The Thing] I Need
I can’t start a podcast because I don’t have a microphone. I haven’t got a studio so I couldn’t record anything for Youtube.

I can’t email that important person I’d like to touch base with, because I don’t have their email address.

I can’t propose to my girlfriend because I don’t have a house, a car, a good career, and I haven’t traveled the world yet.

There’s always something missing if you think hard enough about it – and if you tell yourself often enough it can become absolutely essential that you have X before you even think about starting Y.

4. Person X Hasn’t Done what they Said
AKA “it’s not my fault, it’s theirs”.

I can’t buy the plane tickets because the travel agent never called me back. I haven’t done that thing you asked because my secretary didn’t print something out.

Sound familiar? Shifting the burden to be someone else’s problem as frequently as possible is a good strategy to ensure that the ball is never, ever in your court.

5. I’m Too Busy with X
This is similar to “I haven’t got time” but with this one you can point to a specific reason. Thing X could be any number of fantastic excuses to avoid taking deliberate action in your life. Common examples include babies, family (including spouses and children), work commitments, golf and tennis.

As with the other one, it’s best not to mention in the same conversation about how you were watching Game of Thrones over the weekend.

6. My Family is My Top Priority
This is a good one because no-one in their right mind will call you on it as they would seem callous and cold-hearted if they did.

Naturally your family doesn’t keep you off the golf course, or away from your email at home, or from the pub with your friends, or interfere with your latest movie watching. But that’s OK – provided they are your top priority.

7. I Haven’t Finished Planning Yet
We love planning, and it’s a wonderful road block in any process that requires us to actually achieve something. The good part about the planning process as an excuse is that you can also rely on some other excuses in this list in the same breath like “haven’t got time” and “Person X hasn’t done what they said”.

Of course your plan is probably a 5 year plan and in fact you haven’t even picked up the phone to find out if your business name is a trademark infringement yet – but that’s OK, because you need to ensure that you have built a colourful spreadsheet to show what might happen should the planning phase ever end and the implementation actually begin.

8. It’s a Work In Progress
You’ve started – woohoo! This one is a good follow up to the “haven’t finished planning” excuse because it looks like you’re making progress.

After a time the “I’m still planning” excuse becomes a little stale if you use it too much on the same people, so you can then progress to this one.

This is a lot like when a client asks you how the letter you said you’d write for them is going, and you say “it’s underway” which means “I’ve printed out all your instructions and they are sitting on my desk somewhere”.

9. My Life is Complicated at the Moment
Everyone’s life is complicated so this one is good because, again, it has the ring of truth to it. It also avoids the possibility of further discussion on the topic because there aren’t many people who actually want to “get deep” enough with you to find out just how complicated your life is and exactly what you meant when you said that.

10. I’ve got Too Many Urgent Things to Do
The Tyranny of the Urgent – a wonderful excuse. The beauty of it is that the urgent tasks actually never finish. They are just on a sliding scale of slightly urgent to really urgent, and so you will always have too many urgent things to do which keep you from doing anything important.

11. That’s Not My Job
Similar to “person X hasn’t done what they said” this is good when you really just don’t want to do the important thing at all.

In a sense it’s like getting up on the roof to clean out your gutters – everyone knows it needs to be done, but really someone ELSE should do it, right?

12. I Don’t Have Permission
This is good if your important and meaningful task is inside a corporate context. There’s always somebody from whom you can say you need permission. I need to run it past “Bob” or “Jane” or “Mary”.

Of course Bob, Jane and Mary don’t know this yet and you haven’t spoken to them, but that’s OK because you are impeded from doing anything until somebody gives you permission to get started.

13. It’s Too Risky
I fight fires for a living – I’m concerned that one day, God will call me home while doing my job, but nonetheless I take that risk because I know it comes with the job.

So…definitely don’t stick your neck out for anything.

Certainly don’t take any financial risks, because no business person ever succeeded by taking a risk.

Obviously you shouldn’t risk embarrassment by making a telephone call or sending an email that was anything other than completely predictable – those things are just silly.

14. It’s Not Perfect Enough
This goes hand in hand with planning, and is a good one if you are looking to avoid developing a product or new kind of service. Just because there’s a book about the Minimum Viable Product doesn’t mean that the author or the many people who have successfully done things on a shoestring know what they are doing.

No – definitely anything you do must absolutely be ironed within an inch of its life, completely and utterly finalized without any missing detail and have the input of 100 different stakeholders before you can action it.

15. I’m Fine How I Am
This is a personal growth related excuse, for those who feel that reading comic books, drinking heavily and listening to music is more productive than reading non-fiction or learning new skills.

Because you’re pretty much OK – right? I mean, you do OK, don’t you?

16. I Don’t Know the Right People
This is a good road block in a connection world, because not knowing people in today’s economy is a critical problem.

17. My Idea Isn’t Original Enough
In order for any idea to succeed, it has to be completely original, right? It’s not like you could take an existing idea, give it your voice and your personal spin, hustle hard and make something work.

Because there’s only 1 online book seller.

And only 1 coffee shop franchise.

There’s only 1 law firm, brand colour, logo design business, copywriter, CLE service, motivational speaker, financial advisor and business consultant.

Nope there’s nothing like that – you need an original idea, not just to do something authentic, different and high quality that adds value to people’s lives.

18. I’m Worried About What [X] Will Say About It
The variable here can work for everyone. Mothers, fathers, spouses, bosses, colleagues, friends, cousins, aunties and church members are all good places to start.

It should be someone who has a habit of judging others and their choices so that it’s believable. Other than that, you not wanting to hurt somebodies’ feelings but them judging you for going out on a limb is a pretty good reason not to “commence to start” right?

Of course if this is a real concern and not just a convenient excuse, then clearly it’s unacceptable for you to approach that person and speak with them about it. Because that’s just silly.

19. [X] Said It Wouldn’t Work
Connected with the one above, this is where someone who cares has proactively expressed an opinion about your hair-brained scheme.

“You can’t renovate a house, you don’t know what you’re doing!”

“You shouldn’t go into business, you don’t know the first thing about it”

“I didn’t pay to put you through law school so you could throw it all in the toilet”

See how compelling these are?

20. I Started but I Hit a Wall
You got up and running and it was great, but then something went wrong, ruining your chances of success forever.

Your website crashed.

Your partner left you.

Your investor pulled out.

Obviously you can’t just start over – I mean, nobody has ever done that before, right?

21. I’m Not Smart Enough
You don’t have a way with words. You can’t write sales copy. You don’t know how to run a website, start a business, register a trademark or any of the “essential” things (see numbers 3 and 7 above).

In short – you’re just not good enough.

Generally this is for the “business on the side” or the “start a charity” style goals, but it can work in a variety of areas if you tweak it just right.

22. [X] Tried That and it Didn’t Work Out for Them
My uncle’s friend started an online business trying to sell widgets and it didn’t work out.

Bob (you know – Bob) he tried to get something off the ground raising money to feed the homeless, but he couldn’t get any support.

It’s not hard to find somebody who failed at a similar thing to what you want to do. Just Google it and you’ll have enough anecdotes to stop you from doing anything, ever.

23. I’m Too Tired – I deserve a Break
I know – I’m tired too, I should definitely rest.

How long would you like? 1 year? 5 years?

Perhaps if you rest long enough, you could retire after you’ve finished resting, and have a nice rest from it.

It’s All Connected

Every day it seems there is a new scam warning, data breach notification, or privacy and security concern. It’s almost impossible to keep up with them all.

This month, we’re taking a closer look at smart devices. If you feel like someone is watching you, they probably are; and there’s a good chance you gave them permission, even if it was unwittingly.

Who’s Watching What You Watch?
Is your smart TV a little too smart? You may think you’re opting in only to receive personalized viewing recommendations, but you may also be giving permission to receive targeted advertising on other connected devices. According to one of the largest tracking companies, 90% of people have opted in, but when the onscreen privacy policy and terms exceeds 10,000 words, do these people know what they’re opting into?

That’s the question two U.S. senators have asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The senators don’t believe consumers should have to give up their privacy and personal information to watch TV. They’ve requested the FTC to conduct an industry-wide investigation into data collection practices. This could lead to privacy regulation for smart TVs.

Alexa, What Is My Checking Account Balance?
U.S. Bank is the first bank to make some online banking activities compatible with all three virtual assistants (Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri). Transferring money to other account holders may be next. Customers of other banks can make certain transactions, including paying bills, with some of the devices. PINs and voice recognition can help with privacy and security concerns, but as we’ve seen with person-to-person payment apps, nothing is foolproof. Hackers, a guest, even a nosy neighbor may pick up too much information and gain access to your account.

The Filthiest Food You Can Eat, yet Most Think It’s the Healthiest

STORY AT-A-GLANCE
Between 2009 and 2015, there were 5,760 reported foodborne outbreaks resulting in 100,939 illnesses, 5,699 hospitalizations and 145 deaths.

Chicken was responsible for the most outbreak-associated illnesses — 3,114 cases in all (12 percent), followed by pork and seeded vegetables, each responsible for 10 percent of illnesses.

Food testing through the years has shown that chicken is particularly prone to contamination with dangerous pathogens, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Raw chicken has become a notorious carrier of salmonella, campylobacter, clostridium perfringens and listeria bacteria. Salmonella contamination is of particular concern, as multidrug-resistant salmonella has become prevalent.

According to predictions, 10 million people worldwide will die from antibiotic-resistant
diseases by 2050 lest swift action is taken to curb resistance — and that necessitates the elimination of unnecessary agricultural use of antibiotics.
