Russia To Turn to Cryptocurrencies in Oil Trade

The gradual acceptance of digital currencies, with major exchanges about to launch bitcoin futures trading, may prompt some oil producing nations to ditch the US dollar in crude trade in favor of cryptocurrencies, an oil analyst says. Russia, Iran and Venezuela have more than one thing in common. All three are major oil producing nations dependent on the dollar since the global crude market is traditionally dominated by contracts denominated in US currency. Moscow, Tehran and Caracas are also facing US sanctions; penalties which are proving effective since the sanctioned countries are dependent on the US dollar to sell their … Continue reading

The Evil Freak

Even interventionists are regretting some of the wars into which they helped plunge the United States in this century. Among those wars are Afghanistan and Iraq, the longest in our history; Libya, which was left without a stable government; Syria’s civil war, a six-year human rights disaster we helped kick off by arming rebels to overthrow Bashar Assad; and Yemen, where a U.S.-backed Saudi bombing campaign and starvation blockade is causing a humanitarian catastrophe. Yet, twice this century, the War Party was beaten back when seeking a clash with Putin’s Russia. And the “neo-isolationists” who won those arguments served America … Continue reading

How Long Will Your Car Last?

[Editor’s Note: This article has been updated for comprehensiveness since it’s original posting in October 2015.] I get multiple calls weekly asking how long a car will last.  While it is always just a guess, I base my answers on listener feedback and personal experience. Not all that long ago, people targeted 100,000 miles as their goal to drive their car because that is about the mileage you could expect before having a major failure.  However, cars have gotten much better, technology has improved, and people are doing more maintenance these days.  This is the reason the average age of … Continue reading

Most Wished-for Emergency and Survival Kit Items

Periodically, I visit a number of Amazon lists to get a bead on both best selling and most wished for items.  In the past I would look at lists related to outdoor recreation (which can be found in the second half of this article) but this time around I had some new choices.  With mainstream interest in prepping and preparedness, Amazon has created a list of the Best Sellers in Emergency & Survival Kits as well as a related list for Most Wished For Emergency Items. Top Emergency and Survival Kit Items I was able to couple and cobble the “Best Sellers” and … Continue reading

By Dr. Mercola While the holiday season can be a wonderful time of celebration and connection, few of us get through it without experiencing some level of stress. Emotions can run high around the holidays and expectations higher still. You may feel pressure to entertain, cook a big meal and shop for gifts for family and friends, whether you can afford it or not.
