"CORPORATE HEIGHTS And there you have the explanation for one of the many sordid features of the early twenty-first-century public spectacle . . . outsize CEO salaries. They are the bright feathers of the high-ranking male. Top business leaders have become like sports heroes, but without the talent. You need not have any real knowledge of the business you are getting into, or, as Bernie Ebbers demonstrated, any real knowledge about business of any sort. What will get you a job as a leader in the corporate world is the same thing that will get you a woman in the mating game—outsize confidence."

"Take World War I, one of the greatest public spectacles of all time in terms of money, destruction, and death. Everyone knows the Great War had as many causes as cancer. Militarism, nationalism, interlocking alliances, and imperialism—there was no end to the reasons. Every step of the way to Utopia seemed to need paving with lies. And the ones laying down the paving were the first to trip down it on the royal road to hell. It was in the one country that had no apparent reason to be involved at all that the lies piled up."

"And, as with all public spectacles, the details of what people imagined the devil to be up to increased in inverse proportion to their actual encounters with him. Precisely because no one had actually run into Satan, he proved to be a convenient nail on which to hang every twisted fantasy, repressed desire, and foul imagining that ever swirled in anemic heads. THE HAMMER OF WITCHES But there was one other way in which words played into the mob's madness. And that was through the book that came to symbolize the Great Hunt, The Malleus Maleficorum (The Hammer of the Witches)."

"Anything beyond that point the public will reject—unless they are very intelligent and personally motivated about this difficult situation. It is very clear that the person who desires prevention must have strong motivation and support from the optometrist. But the solution must start with your own willpower. What are the difficulties of "recovery"? Mr. De Angelis and prevention-minded optometrists are clear on that point. The public demands immediate results and does not listen to explanations."

"By the 1950s, Max knew a lot of the right people, and he parlayed those connections into an entry-level job at a public relations firm. Technically, Max was nothing more than a gofer, driving clients to and from important engagements and taking care of other less-than-glamorous duties. But, hustler to the core, Max used his manipulative skills to con his employer's world-famous clientele into believing that he was a high-rolling publicist. He hosted dinners at the Copacabana and other swanky nightspots. He rented a pricey penthouse on the East Side."

"De Angelis and prevention-minded optometrists are clear on that point. The public demands immediate results and does not listen to explanations. Most people might quit an effort if there is the slightest problem or if another ophthalmologist or optometrist uses scare tactics against them. If this happens, they will quit the effort and blame the optometrist for anything that might happen with their eyes. There is scant incentive for optometrists to attempt to help the general public for that reason."

"Private School versus public School Private schools can be expensive and even out of reach financially for many families. Also note that private schools can accept, reject, or eject your child for a variety of reasons."

"While millions of "AD victims" are created by the label each year, substantial amounts of public and private resources are devoted to winning the war on the disease. Consequently, our war chest is expended on the fight for a cure instead of on diplomacy—preventive medicine that could be aimed at keeping brains cognitively fit for a lifetime, and caregiving infrastructure that could help families and communities better adapt to the inevitable changes that accompany brain aging. who benefits from this aggressive medicalization of brain aging?"

"She complained that she had to hold her brother's hand in public places, and how she was yelled at if she let go of it even for just a second to scratch her nose. The list of complaints and of episodes that had upset her seemed to go on endlessly. Melissa was very smart in asking for help, because she was absolutely right. In her family's case, her parents needed to hear it from someone on the outside, especially because they had gotten in the habit of devoting most of their attention to their other child."

"In 2005, Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare posted the intent, purpose, and related information of changing the name for dementia on their Web site and invited opinions from the public. Ninchishou emerged as the victor. The purpose of instituting this new terminology is that a patient given the label will better be able to reconcile their condition and adapt to it without feeling themselves to be fools. Likewise, such a semantic adaptation may lessen the tendency to ostracize aging persons, and may help communities embrace the elderly and see the person rather than the dementia."

"Please don't be discouraged or deterred by the initial denials of your requests to the public school system. Persistence will show that you're serious and that your child's educational rights need to be taken very seriously as well. When to Not Change Schools Let the school help you make this decision, but know that it's not the school's decision, it's yours. Talk to your child, but it certainly isn't his or her decision, either."

"I believe that the time has come for traditional medicine to listen to the demands of the public. People are literally screaming for orthodox physicians to open their minds to complementary methods. This approach is integrative: strategic medicine at its best. In the next chapter, I'll explain how the Sinatra solution—using metabolic cardiology—has made a difference in the lives of the patients I have helped."

"If your child enjoys reading, sign him or her up for book clubs at your local bookstore or public library. If your child has taken up an instrument, sign him or her up to play in an orchestra or encourage him or her to start a band. And, of course, if your child has developed new athleticism, have him or her try out for a sports team. Team sports will be discussed in greater detail in the following chapter on exercise—another integral part of the ADD/ADHD cure. In less time than you might think, your child will be well on the way to reentering social circles and peer groups."

"Puthoff also worked on a multimillion-dollar project funded by Lockheed Martin and a variety of American universities, to develop Zero Point energy for space travel—a program that finally went public in 2006. Many strange properties of the quantum world, like uncertainty or entanglement, could be explained if you factored in the constant interaction of all quantum particles with the Zero Point Field. To Puthoff, sciences understanding of the nature of entanglement was analogous to two sticks stuck in the sand at the edge of the ocean, about to be hit by a huge wave."

"Ali also made public statements of his intentions. His constant barrage of rhyming couplets and quatrains, seemingly so innocuous, were highly specific intentions in disguise: Archie Moore Is sure To hug the floor By the end of four Now Clay swings with a right What a beautiful swing And the punch knocks the Bear Clear out of the ring. Before a fight, Ali repeated these little rhymes like a mantra—to the press, to his opponent, and even in the ring—until he himself accepted them as fact."

"He found telepathy fascinating, he added, because his preoccupation with it reminded him, though on a reduced scale, of 'the great experiment of my life' when he stood up against public obloquy as the discoverer of psychoanalysis.6 One of Freud's disciples, Dr. Sandor Ferenczi, had an interest in psychic phenomena and apparently conducted informal experiments on "thought transference" with Freud and his daughter and life-long companion, Anna."

"After examining 556 separate polls between 1998 and 2004, Nelson's colleague Peter Bancel discovered that peaks in variations followed big public changes of opinion of any variety, either for or against the president. Strong emotion, positive or negative—even to presidential decisions—seemed to produce order. The results of the FieldREG work and the Global Consciousness Project offer several important clues about the nature of group intention. A group mind appears to have a psychokinetic effect on any random micro-physical process, even when not focused on the machinery itself."

"Bush, to see if he could discover a connection of any kind between the global "mind" and current American opinions of the president, and whether the REG network reacted most when there were strong feelings of unity and purpose, such as the Americans had shared in the wake of 9/11, or when the public mood was polarized, as it had been after the invasion of Iraq and the deposing of Saddam Hussein's regime."

"The pillars of the myth are as follows: AD is a singular disease Despite widespread belief that there is a disease called Alzheimer's against which science is waging war, what the public isn't told is that so-called Alzheimer's disease cannot be differentiated from normal aging and that no two illness courses are the same. As you will learn, there is no one biological profile of Alzheimer's that is consistent from person to person, and all the biological hallmarks of AD are also the hallmarks of normal brain aging."

"There is scant incentive for optometrists to attempt to help the general public for that reason. 119 Many in the health professions judge that they have no choice but to apply a minus lens (with a few exceptions). This is tragic, because a large mass of scientific data tells us objectively that whenever the eye is placed in a "confined" environment it always moves in a negative direction—toward nearsightedness. This unfortunate situation has continued for a large number of years. The theory of using a lens on the eye began this way: 1."

"Sitting inactive in a public place _ 4. Being a passenger in a motor vehicle for an hour or more _ 5. Lying down in the afternoon _ 6. Sitting and talking to someone _ 7. Sitting quietly after lunch (no alcohol) _ 8. Stopped for a few minutes in traffic while driving _ Total score _ While it would make sense that people with severe fatigue or widespread pain might have an underlying sleep disorder, the evidence for this possibility is not convincing."

"There has been much mistrust among the public of the conventional medical model recently. Starving for new information, massive numbers of patients are consulting alternative therapy practitioners, and are visiting book and health food stores in record numbers, creating a multibillion-dollar industry outside of the mainstream medical community. Consider that in 1990, almost 33 percent of the population spent 22 percent of their out-of-pocket dollars on alternative therapy, and these numbers keep rising."

"This is why they are effective whenever and wherever social control is at a premium, such as in mental hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, institutions for persons with developmental disabilities, children's facilities and public clinics, as well as in Russian and Cuban psychiatric political prisons. They are even used in veterinary medicine to bend or subdue the will of animals. When one of our dogs was given a neuroleptic for car sickness, our daughter observed, 'He's behaving himself for the first time in his life.'" Dr. Breggin says we need to be looking at broader issues. "

"Chapter 5 L- Carnitine: The Energy Shuttle One of the major advances in cardiovascular disease over the last two decades has been the reduction in the number of heart attacks, probably the result of tremendous efforts at public education and awareness, and successful efforts at risk factor modification. But during this same twenty-year period, deaths from heart failure have more than doubled. To look into this problem, 159 of our leading cardiologists met regularly for several years, and reported their findings."

"But for one, this lone variable—adequate magnesium intake—to be associated with a one-third lowered relative risk for everyone is pretty phenomenal, and so easy to make public policy! The exact mechanism of action by which magnesium lowers risk continues to have us stymied. But nonetheless, the fact remains that insulin sensitivity is often improved with simple administration of this easy-to-find mineral, and it assists many diabetics in achieving better glucose control. So why miss a chance to take such an easy step for health protection?"

"They were obviously used to being on the receiving end of such stares as they made their public visits. Almost instantly one word popped into my mind, and, as quietly as I could, I whispered it under my breath almost instinctively: "Stigmata! This man is living with stigmata!" As the group was seated, gradually the buzz resumed in the room as the other diners went back to their meals and conversation."

"Thomas Halton and Frank Hu of the Harvard University School of public Health compared the satiety factor of high-protein diets to high-carbohydrate and low-fat diets, and they concluded that you feel more satisfied if you eat a high-protein diet, which, in turn, will result in your consuming fewer calories. This makes you lose more weight—and sustain the loss—than you would if you ate a high-carb or a low-fat diet. The basics to take away from these studies of weight-loss programs are two simple facts: 1. To lose weight, you have to be able to stay on the program. 2."

"M-cells are scavengers that rummage through the garbage that normal and abnormal cells leave behind as they search for clues to problems. Like public watchdogs, M-cells present alarming pieces of evidence to T-cells. T-cells are judges; they decide whether to respond to this evidence or to ignore it, and they base judgments on the volume and quality of the evidence and on memory of similar or past cases. Just as there are different judges in a court system, the different classes of T-cells are T-helper cells, T-killer cells (cytotoxic T-cells), and regulatory T-cells."

"The American public and even the American Medical Association are acknowledging that herbs can be beneficial. However, part of the paradigm that is being established is that "Yes, herbs can be helpful if you have a cold or a headache or want a little more mental clarity; but if you're really sick, you need real drugs." Bullpucky!! You've been sold a bill of goods. Drug companies are spending millions and millions of dollars developing chemical knock-offs of herb-based phytochemicals."
