5.000 Years of History

The prophets understood it via the infamous Sodom and Gomorra. During the Egyptian conquest it is said that Queen Cleopatra obtained exclusive rights to build cosmetic and pharmaceutical factories in the region. Later on, the wily Nabateans discovered the value of bitumen extracted from the Dead Sea and needed by the Egyptians for embalming their mummies. In Roman times the Essenes settled in Qumran on the Dead Sea northern shore for a place of refuge and on the heights of Masada a small group of rebellious Jewish zealots held out against the might of the Roman Legion. The remoteness of this region attracted Greek Orthodox monks since the Victorian age. Their monasteries such as Saint George in Wadi Kelt and Mar Saba in the Judean Desert are places of pilgrimage. Bedouin tribes have always lived in the area and more recently explorers and scientists came to examine the minerals and conduct research to the exceptional climate. Since the 1960’s, tourists from all of the world also have researched the Dead Sea region.

Situated on the heart of the Great Syrian-African rift valley that stretches throughout Israel and outside, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the earth (400 meters or 1,320 feet below sea level), and is flanked by the Judean Mountains on the west, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Mountains of Moab on the east, the Jordan Valley and Sea of Galilee to the north and the Negev Desert in Addition to the Red Sea to the south.

The Dead Sea Water

The water of the Dead Sea contains 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, bromine and potassium. 12 of these are found in no other area or ocean and some are recognized for imparting a relaxed feeling, nourishing the skin, activating the circulatory systems and for easing rheumatic discomfort and metabolic disorders. As an example, the Dead Sea contains 10 times more salts and minerals compared to the Mediterranean Sea. The high salt and mineral concentration enables every person to float in its waters but doesn’t allow the proliferation of fish and other marine life.

Thermo-mineral Springs

Found in several places along the Dead Sea shores. The many minerals contained in the warm water are dominated by sulfur. Soaking in the heated sulfur pools activates the circulatory system and increases the oxygen supply to your system.

Flows from the Judean Hills to the lower areas fronting the Dead Sea. When hiking across the area’s”wadis” (seasonal dry river beds) and oasis, one can often splash in waterfalls and cool streams. Natural mineral spring water is bottled and locally marketed around the nation.

The Sun

The Dead Sea is the only place on earth where one can sunbathe for extended periods with little or no sunburn because harmful ultraviolet rays are filtered through three natural layers: an extra atmospheric layer, an evaporation layer which exists above the Dead Sea and a rather thick ozone layer.

The Air
The region’s miraculous air is dry, unpolluted and pollen-free with low humidity. Because of the constant evaporation, the air contains high concentrations of many minerals, mainly bromine, providing a genuinely calming effect.

Because of the high barometric pressure it has approximately 8% more oxygen than anywhere else on earth and consequently makes breathing easier.

Black Mud

A signature element of the Dead Sea, black sand is optional blend of Dead Sea minerals, important organic elements from the coastline in addition to earth. Indulging in a dark mud body wrap has both therapeutic and cosmetic benefits – known to cleanse and stimulate the skin, relieve muscle and emotional tensions, improve blood circulation, and ease rheumatic pain. The rich minerals as well as the mud tightening action promote flow by increasing the supply of oxygen to and removing the toxins from the skin, thus toning and firming up skin tissues, leaves the skin glowing and youthful looking. Dead Sea Mineral Mud cleans, purifies, and restores the skin’s natural minerals.

The Salt

As the name suggests, the Dead Sea is devoid of life because of an extremely high content of salts and minerals. It is these natural components which gave the water its curative powers. Dead Sea Salt and Dead Sea Mud have been recognized by millions of people as a single source of health and beauty since the days of Herod the Great, more than 2,000 years ago. The Dead Sea has a 33% concentration of salts and minerals (compared to only 3% in the ocean). Dead Sea Salt original mineral composition improves cell metabolism and leads to its restoration and regeneration. Dead Sea Salt also acts as a disinfectant and help in removing harmful substances from the skin.

Being Black in Modern Times

People, Portrait, Man, Male, Black

I hear you say, Before you get on your high horse, just allow me to say I have spoken to plenty of my buddies about this, Black and White and all of them agreed with what I had to say. . Cool! .

Yes, being a young black man and living in britain or in my case London daily it can be as indicated a roller coaster ride.

Firstly I have to say, the something that gets me is that the staring, it is the obvious low!

White girls, white men, Chinese people etc, they stare, it is funny but Indian women and men do not stare as much, maybe they feel secure or are just use to the exact same treatment! Who knows? I mean I could walk on any street, day and night and its always the same, take only another day, it was 5pm on a Thursday, it was a lovely day, there I was walking up a very notable road near Holland park, near where I really live, I walk on the right hand side of any street or road, I do not know why its just my way! So as I was walking, playing songs from my ipod and taking in the sights of this beautiful beautiful Houses on this street. Ahead of me I could see a very attractive lady and yes she was white, as I got closer to this lady I noticed she had been looking straight at me, I thought to myself great she is stunning and she is looking at me, cool! . .Hmm! I thought to myself, not great! Now again, do not fly of the deal but to me it seemed like she had been scared of me or found me threatening. Which is understandable in this day an age with how society is but what got me was that this street was fairly long and if she wished to cross over why did not she do it much sooner? However, it got worse for me that specific day because within a minute or 2. . .it occur again and this time the woman was much older. I was beginning to think I must seem like a ideal villain in spite of the fact that I had been dress quite decent plus I had been carrying my guitar (instance ) in my shoulders.

This might be just the area of Holland Park I hear you say but I will tell you that this occurs every other day to me and to many Black Men around the united kingdom. We won’t speak about law enforcement and the stop and search variable but I will say that, that is only gone completely over the top, too much stories to tell so I will stop there because that is just the one of those lows, now allow me to give you a top, I believe you deserve to hear the advantages in addition to the downsides but after hearing it, do you say it was a positive thing or a negative thing?

Well! . .one of the greatest things about being a Black Man is the way Women perceive us, Black men attract women in another manner than the normal man, or should I say a white guy. White guys will always get girls because it is their world and that is fine by me but being Black we’ve got something that they will never have and know. We’ve got the difference! Women who like this gap may inform you, they enjoy it because they simply prefer black guys, I think that there is a deeper meaning to the madness. I believe it comes down to one thing and that’s fear. I can practically hear you say, what the hell is this guy talking about? Well take it from me; we understand that if we need something and we know we can not have it, we are inclined to go out of our way to get it and that is how all of this began, it’s only progressed quietly within different generations, cultures and life generally.

I’ve travelled around the world and every time I leave the UK I’m always racially abused in some way, from airport security around the world to European towns in which there are zero Black guys and so after you get of the plane you become like a alien and everyone stares at you and sees the gap I have been talking about. But going back to the girls for a second or two, they do often see something else than their male counterparts. Most times it’s great for me, sometimes it’s not but being a man you can not always get the girl! Various women from all over the world prefer a certain kind of person, be it about their spiritual beliefs, or sexually traits or their fear of the distinction, What I’ve observed and have made a note of is that Asian girls i.e. Chinese or Indian will not be seen dead using a Black guy, Eastern girls are a bit different, the new generation of young girls do find Black men more attractive but that is based on the nationality of the Black male. American girls are certainly mixing it in the moment a great deal more than ever but that is down to the way Black men are portrayed in the united states. English Girls are showing signs but for me in cosmopolitan London. Irish and Scottish White women won’t go down that street. The welsh women are far more receptive to the idea but generally there is still segregation amongst the mixing of Black Men and White Women across the world, again for me it is very much understandable.

In my case I get lots of attention from White women in fact a great deal more than I’d get from Black ladies, so what does that tell you! If you do not believe me just check out any dating website, that is where all of the evidence is. Just look at what the girls want and you’ll see. . .90percent of those women want white men and only 10% do not care what the guy looks like. Again that’s just how the world is, taste is quite important to most people.

So the ride persists. . This is a touchy subject that haunts me to the heart of my spirit but what people really don’t know is that being Black we see things really easy, we do not go around thinking we’re better than anybody that’s the first thingwe do not see racism throughout our eyes when we look at a different culture, we do not wonder why you’re that color and why we are this color but with how we’ve been duped by the planet with easy things like Great is shown by the color White and Bad is revealed as Black, its easy things like this continues beliefs in white culture which color Black ought to be feared.

Also the absence of White people around the World, not knowing where they come from and their own history, Being a Black Man or Black Woman we obviously wish to understand our roots and we pursue this everyday and the majority of the new generation of Blacks around the world know much more about where they come from, more than a White Person. The History of Black people is seldom told so we’re left to our own devices to get the questions and answers so that we are the proud race and people which we are now. Bear in mind that this is only my view point of this situation about being a Black. Yours may be different but that’s what makes us the people we are.

What has ufo advocates stirred up

Ufo, Children, Alien, Sky, Evening

Believers and long-time investigators of Unidentified Flying Objects phenomena expressed disappointment concerning the manner Peter Jennings managed the ABC News Special Report recently led to the United States television audience.

They anticipated Peter Jennings Special ABC News Report on UFOs to leave non-believers with a positive impression of the often disputed topic. However, despite such persuasive research, photographs, and documentation as was made accessible to the show’s producers to use by valid investigators, ABC still elected to not use the majority of the best material.

“The first hour of the broadcast was great,” said one frustrated viewer. “Then, in the second half, they turned it around in such a way as to leave countless undecided. ABC’s experts were skeptical of eye-witness sightings, and ignored any official cover-up or disinformation agenda regarding UFOs, extraterrestrials, flying saucers, and alien abductions from our government.”

In startling contrast to the Jennings’ report with its own convenient,”Computer generated animation’s” the well informed 700 UFO Congress attendees watched”Actual time/dated video footage.” A demonstration showing hundreds of UFOs, extraterrestrial, or alien aerial craft has been introduced by Mexico’s most respected,”60 Minutes”,”Sunday To Sunday”, and”ECO” anchor & esteemed journalist, Jaime Maussan.

Maussan was one of those over one-dozen distinguished speakers, scientists, researchers, UFO researchers, retired military analysts, renowned authors, university professors, and internationally acclaimed experts, assembled from around the world, who presented conclusive evidence of ordinary alien visitations to Earth Earth.

The worldwide view was overwhelmingly positive in agreement that UFOs are real and the consequences of the growing willingness to let themselves be filmed is just another sign that the people of the planet has to be brought up to speed.

The Safespace News Agency, a fact based video News Magazine was established on the premise that THE MAINSTREAM NEWS IS THE COVER-UP!

In accordance with Safespace North American manufacturer, Robert D. Miles,”Our journalists at http://SafespaceProject.com are prepared to debunk the debunkers,” he guaranteed. “We are getting ready to tell the world the true story of what’s really happening, on a planetary basis. Viewers will see our planet as it actually is, not as they’re now being told it is, from the mainstream media.

In the not too distant future, stirred-up UFO advocates might not be let-down.

Real Way to Get Cheaper Gasoline

Vintage, General Store, Auto, Car

Very once in a while, someone starts a campaign to reduce gas prices by urging everyone not to buy any gas on a certain date. The preferred date is far enough in the future to permit for a massive e-mail and newscast effort to spread the news far and wide throughout the land and get everyone geared up for the big day. The idea is that the resulting surplus of unsold gas would force distributors to reduce the prices in order to have the ability to unload the stuff. There are just two issues with that idea: 1) almost no one participates and 2) those who do participate buy their gasoline either the day before or the day after the target date, so the net result is the same amount of gasoline is sold and the price stays too high.

I have noticed that most motorists completely ignore the speed limit on the freeway. Where I live, the freeway speed limit in the city is 65 mph. It’s quite possible to drive that fast in the right hand (“slow”) lane and have people come up on your bumper and give you an annoyed look as they go around you because they believe you’re driving too slowly! 80 miles in the left hand (“quickly” or”passing”) lane is normal, as are people in hurry braiding in and out of lanes because they believe their time is more important than yours and you are in their way. You may not want to hear this, but such driving wastes gas! The same gas you whine and moan about every time you fill out in the pump gets wasted out on the freeway by such drivers. Maybe even YOU???

According to the site Howstuffworks, the best mileage can be accomplished by driving between 40-60 mph. Now I am here to tell you that driving 40 mph on the freeway will get you one of 3 things: 1) a ticket for impeding the flow of traffic 2) to – or getting the cause of – and accident 3) killed. However, driving at 60 mph will not cause any more dirty looks than driving at 65, as long as you remain in the right hand lane. You won’t cause any accidents, and you won’t get a ticket for impeding traffic.

Now I can hear you already:”However, I’m late!” Plan ahead, and leave a few minutes earlier. Think about it for a moment. If you drive 65 mph for one whole hour, you will only be 5 miles farther down the road that if you drove 60 mph for that same hour. Those of you who spend a whole hour commuting are usually not driving 65 miles. You are driving more like 10 miles, crawling along at jogging rates. This will not work for that type of commute. But if your drive is such that you have the choice of driving faster than 60 mph, DON’T!

The great thing about the system is that you benefit from it even if no one else participates! There’s a very real possibility that you could fill up your tank one less time per month. That would save you $20-$50 per month, which is $240-$600 per year. Spend it on Christmas gifts. Splurge a little on your vacation. There are tons of ways that you could enjoy the extra money. And if other people participate, because a growing number of people would be buying one less tank of gas per month, the supply would go up because the need really would be down, and that would mean lower costs that would benefit everybody (except possibly OPEC, and they don’t want the money.) Try it!
