We are a nation of self-love in the era of self-love. Entire industries have been built to short circuit the healthy social imperatives of shame and guilt, and entire generations have been convinced beyond any doubt they are each and all special. We no longer believe that we are simply deserving of the love of someone, we have now been led by teachers, parents and cultural leaders to feel as though we are entitled to the adoration of everyone around us - solely as a function of our own existence. One of the most troubling corollaries to this new axiomatic selfishness is the widespread preaching... Read More
Jean-Baptiste Duprés was a French Investigative Journalist working in Mexico when the outbreak of the Swine Flu virus began in the country. On 25th April 2009, he decided to give up his then work on a high-level drug mexican cartel to start an investigation on the new deadly virus.
Through that investigation that led him into what was to be the most unbelievable conspiracy one could have imagined, Duprés travelled to different places in Mexico and other cities in the world.

After 9-11 I didn’t want to kill anyone, I didn’t even want revenge. I just wanted to help its victims. So I began to volunteer. There I was trained in what Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is and how to work with and help those with it.
In the game of life one of the biggest players is our emotions. Feelings can make a person become jealous and words of love can make a soul willing to give anything in order to have that love. Being betrayed by love is hard! Many people who have been betrayed by love have committed suicide because of the pain. People who kill themselves do not do so... Read More
In a world with social networking sites as a basis for a lot of our communication, it's sometimes hard to form "real" and "true" relationships right off the bat, and nor should or do you have to for that matter. However, people feel they can form true opinions of you from your "status updates". Granted, some of them speak volumes about some of us, however, there are those that people try to dig deeper into, and suddenly want to solicit advice and become your therapist. Sometimes, I REALLY do just want to sit in the dark and watch a sad movie because crying feels really good. Plus, I'm an... Read More
This past Saturday I stood back in a familiar place: on a padded cheer floor about an hour from my apartment, in front of a table full of judges, standing beside thirty or so impossibly fit men and women, my wrists secured with athletic tape, and with a fresh sweat dripping down my back from warming up. Nearly 18 months after dismissal by the team, triple-fusion spine surgery and a month removed from my 35th birthday, I was back at Clippers Fan Patrol tryouts.Just so I don't ruin the suspense for you, I didn't make the team. But, in defense of that failure, I didn't actually try out.... Read More

What would I suggest to those in charge of keeping the status quo? Putting people in prisons, has not made a difference in crime other than possibly increasing it, sophisticating it, and running out of room in prisons to house, feed, and medically take care of inmates, who are not changing their behaviors that got them in prison or jail in the first place. So what can be done differently?
Here is what I see... the price of a six pack of cheap beer is about 5 dollars, a good movie is about 10 dollars and only lasts a little over an hour, an eighth of an ounce of marijuana is about 60... Read More
