Eat, Fast and Live Longer explores the recently accepted concept that fasting is key to longevity in the human being. Here science takes the lead to discover what can be done to change the way we live. No pills, no medicines simply fasting.This revolutionary insight looks at a 101 year old Indian man who runs marathons; here we see him running in the London marathon and is happy that the secret lies in what and how much he eats. Mr Singh is remarkable and has never had surgery and never takes medicine…his diet is a simple diet of fresh food and eats normally only a childs type portion.A scientific theory has been existent for as long as Mr Singh has been alive … it is this theory that Michael Moseley examines in this documentary.It isn’t just what we eat but how and when we eat it…following from the Great Depression 1929 – 1033 remarkably, life expectancy rose by 6 years. What is the link between calorie restriction and longevity? Professor Luigi Fontana has conducted studies of many people who have restricted their diets.Meet the CRONIs (Calorie Restrictor on Optimal Nutrition) who eat bucket loads of fruit…and in many instances they eat just the skins and not the main part of the fruit!! 1900 cals per day v 2300 cals per day and this is the basis of a challenge between one of the CRONIs and Michael when they head to a fitness centre to be assessed. Body fat 11% in the CRONI V 27.1% in Michael. The results are very damning and quite conclusive from these tests. The thought is that these results can be reversed by a year on the new diet.We try now to see if the benefits of this diet can be replicated in a way which avoids the necessity to embark on this extreme diet. In the lab there are genetically engineered mice which demonstrate a fantastic difference in life expectancy. A look at a certain population within Ecuador demonstrates that none of them have died of cancer or diabetes but they are small, dwarf-like persons. IGF1 is a growth hormone which has a considerable affect upon certain people…but is there a link?Protein is a link…which pushes us to drive forward instead of slowing us down. How do we lower IGF1…fasting… 3 days and 4 nights of fasting can show very impressive results….water, black tea and one 50 cal cuppa soup… Sitting in a Korean restaurant having eaten nothing all day is not a fantastic thought.Hunger does not build and build but comes in waves which pass…glucose stores are depleted and you then start burning fat deposits and the liver produces less IGF1; or that is the theory on test here….has it been worthwhile? The IGF_1 dropped by a half and reduces changes of cancer. This is an incredible discovery.Along with a change in diet, fasting will need to be once every couple of months to maintain this dramatic change…but is there anything better which is less difficult to achieve? On to another study in Chicago where the research seems easier….alternate day restrictions. Fast day..feed day…fast day…feed day. Animal and human trials seem to indicate this is a much more palatable mechanism to achieve results.Eat whatever you want on the feed day…then eat controlled food on the fast day.Finally, Baltimore and the affects of ageing on the brain. Another mouse takes centre stage and these mice put on the feed/fast diet against standard diet and the results are incredible. Sporadic bouts of hunger actually trigger new neurons to grow…possibly in terms of evolutionary terms it assists survival…fasting does seem to make you sharper!!Simple conclusion: Alternate day fasting is definitely better than continual calorie restriction.Micheal is going to embark upon a 5 days normal and 2 days fasting diet….then test and describe the results after 5 weeks on the diet.His Initial Results:Lost over a stone (14 lbs)Body fat down from 27% to 20%IGF-1 dropped by 50%Diabetic glucose back to normalCholesterol great improvement.Find out more about the 5:2 Fasting Diet.Or try this book!

The Iceman Confessions Of A Mafia Hitman
The Iceman Confessions Of A Mafia Hitman

6,940 Views 1 Comments 01:10:10

The Iceman is an appropriate title for this pair of HBO specials, because the words of former Mafia enforcer Richard Kuklinski will chill you to the bone.Speaking in the monotonous drone of a man who has numbed himself with remorseless brutality, Kuklinski was first interviewed in 1991, five years after receiving consecutive life sentences for multiple murders.Specializing in the tidy use of cyanide, Kuklinski lived a double life, like the fictional hitmen in The Sopranos and Road to Perdition, passing as a "businessman" and devoted husband and father. He describes numerous killings in graphic detail, expressing nearly tearful regret only when lamenting the deception of his family.A vicious product of child abuse, Kuklinski was visited again by HBO in 2001, but this shameless redundancy was an obvious attempt to capitalize on the Sopranos phenomenon. Fascinating as a firsthand record of Mafia killing, these otherwise unsavory interviews serve little purpose beyond morbid exploitation.

‘Is Alcohol Worse Than Ecstasy?’ takes a scientific look towards the current ranking system of drugs.In a surprising outcome, alcohol, solvents and tobacco (all unclassified drugs) are rated more dangerous than ecstasy, 4-MTA and LSD (all class A drugs). If the current ABC system is retained, alcohol would be rated a class A drug and tobacco class B.The drug policies have remained unchanged over the last 40 years; this film highlights that it is now high time for a change in the current ABC System, which is arbitrary and unscientific in the context of the new research findings.The scientists involved, including members of the government’s top advisory committee on drug classification, have produced a thorough assessment of the social and individual harm caused by 20 of the UK’s most dangerous drugs and assert that this should form the basis of future ranking.

In ‘Civilization: Is the West History?’, filmmaker Niall Ferguson asks how the Western civilization, from exhibiting an unpromising outlook in the 15th century, came to dominate the rest of the world; and if the West is about to be overtaken by the rest. This film comprises of a series of six parts and each of the six parts elucidates the main strengths of the West that made it so successful:Competition: The first part in the series begins in 1420 when England on the eve of the Wars of the Roses seemed quite primitive by contrast to Ming China that had a credible claim to be the most advanced civilization in the world.Science: The domination of West by East was an alarmingly plausible scenario in 1683, when the Ottoman army laid siege to Vienna, the capital of Europe’s most powerful empire; but Islam was defeated by the help of tact and Science.Property: This part looks into the reasons as to why North America succeeded while South America for so many centuries lagged behind. It shows how the two had much in common but they differed profoundly on individual property rights, the rule of law and representative government, which eventually made all the difference.Medicine: The fourth part shows how the French Empire consciously set out to civilize West Africa by improving public health as well as building a modern infrastructure. Yet in other European empires – notably Germany’s in southwest Africa – colonial rule led to genocide.Consumerism: This part illustrates how the world today is becoming more homogenous and, with increasingly few exceptions, big-name brands dominate main streets, high streets and shopping malls all over the globe.Work: The sixth element that enabled the West to dominate the rest was the work ethic, which extolled the spirit of Capitalism by working hard, saving, and accumulating capital.

1. Love and Power. This is the story of the dream that was built in the 1990s that computers can create a new kind of world stability. That would create a new global capitalist class free of any risk and without the boom and bust of the past. It would also abolish the political power and create a new type of democracy through the Internet, where millions of people would be connected as nodes in cybernetic systems – without hierarchy.2. The use and abuse of the concepts of vegetation. This is the story of how our modern scientific idea of nature, the ecosystem of self-regulation is actually a fantasy of the machine. It has little to do with the complexity of nature. It is based on cybernetic ideas that were projected in the wild in the 1950s by scientists ambitious. A static machine theory of order that sees humans, and everything else on the planet, as components – teeth – in a system.3. The monkey in the machine and the machine in the monkey. This episode examines why humans find this vision for seductive. The film argues that because all the political dreams of changing the world for the better seem to have failed – so have taken refuge in the machine fantasies that say we have no control over our actions because our failure is excused.

This is a potentially controversial docu-drama about Adolf Hitler, showing his life growing up, and his reign of Germany through WW2.Most historical documentaries show Hitler as the mad leader behind the slaughter of countless people, and while that part is true, the story behind his life, through defeat in the trenches WW1, his desire to be an artist, and his upbringing is rarely told.During World War 1, which is a turning point in the life of Adolf Hitler, he reportedly loved the trench warfare, even volunteering for hazardous duty, and was actually awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class for Bravery.The film also goes into Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, one of the worlds best selling books, which gives not only his political and social views, but also talks about boxing, Syphilis and other seemingly random topics.Using historical footage and re-created scenes, this documentary may not change your opinions of the most talked about German Leaders in history, but should at least give you more insight into his life and why he did what he did.This film is broken into parts, starting with the trailer.Be sure to see the filmmaker’s website at: http://thegreateststorynevertold.tv/

The Iceman Confessions Of A Mafia Hitman

6,940 Views 1 Comments 01:10:10

The Iceman is an appropriate title for this pair of HBO specials, because the words of former Mafia enforcer Richard Kuklinski will chill you to the bone.Speaking in the monotonous drone of a man who has numbed himself with remorseless brutality, Kuklinski was first interviewed in 1991, five years after receiving consecutive life sentences for multiple murders.Specializing in the tidy use of cyanide, Kuklinski lived a double life, like the fictional hitmen in The Sopranos and Road to Perdition, passing as a "businessman" and devoted husband and father. He describes numerous killings in graphic detail, expressing nearly tearful regret only when lamenting the deception of his family.A vicious product of child abuse, Kuklinski was visited again by HBO in 2001, but this shameless redundancy was an obvious attempt to capitalize on the Sopranos phenomenon. Fascinating as a firsthand record of Mafia killing, these otherwise unsavory interviews serve little purpose beyond morbid exploitation.

Both the United States and the Soviet Union drifted apart after the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Russian Civil War and the Paris Peace Conference. Diplomatic and extensive trading relationships were established under Roosevelt, but relations soured following the Soviet occupation of the Baltic States and eastern Poland. After Hitler broke the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact the Western powers worked closely with the Soviet Union during the Second World War. Distrust reemerged as Stalin's plans for placing Eastern Europe in the Soviet Union's sphere of influence became apparent towards the war's end, and came to the fore at the Potsdam Conference, just before the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Interviewees include George F. Kennan, Zoya Zarubina, Hugh Lunghi and George Elsey.

‘Is Alcohol Worse Than Ecstasy?’ takes a scientific look towards the current ranking system of drugs.In a surprising outcome, alcohol, solvents and tobacco (all unclassified drugs) are rated more dangerous than ecstasy, 4-MTA and LSD (all class A drugs). If the current ABC system is retained, alcohol would be rated a class A drug and tobacco class B.The drug policies have remained unchanged over the last 40 years; this film highlights that it is now high time for a change in the current ABC System, which is arbitrary and unscientific in the context of the new research findings.The scientists involved, including members of the government’s top advisory committee on drug classification, have produced a thorough assessment of the social and individual harm caused by 20 of the UK’s most dangerous drugs and assert that this should form the basis of future ranking.

Eat, Fast and Live Longer explores the recently accepted concept that fasting is key to longevity in the human being. Here science takes the lead to discover what can be done to change the way we live. No pills, no medicines simply fasting.This revolutionary insight looks at a 101 year old Indian man who runs marathons; here we see him running in the London marathon and is happy that the secret lies in what and how much he eats. Mr Singh is remarkable and has never had surgery and never takes medicine…his diet is a simple diet of fresh food and eats normally only a childs type portion.A scientific theory has been existent for as long as Mr Singh has been alive … it is this theory that Michael Moseley examines in this documentary.It isn’t just what we eat but how and when we eat it…following from the Great Depression 1929 – 1033 remarkably, life expectancy rose by 6 years. What is the link between calorie restriction and longevity? Professor Luigi Fontana has conducted studies of many people who have restricted their diets.Meet the CRONIs (Calorie Restrictor on Optimal Nutrition) who eat bucket loads of fruit…and in many instances they eat just the skins and not the main part of the fruit!! 1900 cals per day v 2300 cals per day and this is the basis of a challenge between one of the CRONIs and Michael when they head to a fitness centre to be assessed. Body fat 11% in the CRONI V 27.1% in Michael. The results are very damning and quite conclusive from these tests. The thought is that these results can be reversed by a year on the new diet.We try now to see if the benefits of this diet can be replicated in a way which avoids the necessity to embark on this extreme diet. In the lab there are genetically engineered mice which demonstrate a fantastic difference in life expectancy. A look at a certain population within Ecuador demonstrates that none of them have died of cancer or diabetes but they are small, dwarf-like persons. IGF1 is a growth hormone which has a considerable affect upon certain people…but is there a link?Protein is a link…which pushes us to drive forward instead of slowing us down. How do we lower IGF1…fasting… 3 days and 4 nights of fasting can show very impressive results….water, black tea and one 50 cal cuppa soup… Sitting in a Korean restaurant having eaten nothing all day is not a fantastic thought.Hunger does not build and build but comes in waves which pass…glucose stores are depleted and you then start burning fat deposits and the liver produces less IGF1; or that is the theory on test here….has it been worthwhile? The IGF_1 dropped by a half and reduces changes of cancer. This is an incredible discovery.Along with a change in diet, fasting will need to be once every couple of months to maintain this dramatic change…but is there anything better which is less difficult to achieve? On to another study in Chicago where the research seems easier….alternate day restrictions. Fast day..feed day…fast day…feed day. Animal and human trials seem to indicate this is a much more palatable mechanism to achieve results.Eat whatever you want on the feed day…then eat controlled food on the fast day.Finally, Baltimore and the affects of ageing on the brain. Another mouse takes centre stage and these mice put on the feed/fast diet against standard diet and the results are incredible. Sporadic bouts of hunger actually trigger new neurons to grow…possibly in terms of evolutionary terms it assists survival…fasting does seem to make you sharper!!Simple conclusion: Alternate day fasting is definitely better than continual calorie restriction.Micheal is going to embark upon a 5 days normal and 2 days fasting diet….then test and describe the results after 5 weeks on the diet.His Initial Results:Lost over a stone (14 lbs)Body fat down from 27% to 20%IGF-1 dropped by 50%Diabetic glucose back to normalCholesterol great improvement.Find out more about the 5:2 Fasting Diet.Or try this book!

The Illuminati, plural of ‘illuminatus’ or ‘illuminated’, is a name given to a few groups, both genuine and invented. Generally, the name alludes to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-period mystery society established on May 1, 1776. The general public's objectives were to contradict superstition, obscurantism, religious impact over open life and misuses of state force. "The request of the day," they wrote in their general statutes, "is to put an end to the maneuvers of the purveyors of bad form, to control them without overwhelming them." The Illuminati, alongside Freemasonry and other mystery social orders, were banned through Edict, by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore, with the support of the Roman Catholic Church, in 1784, 1785, 1787 and 1790. In the quite a while taking after, the gathering was denounced by moderate and religious commentators who asserted that they proceeded with underground and were in charge of the French Revolution. In resulting utilization, "Illuminati" alludes to different associations which guarantee or are indicated to have connections to the first Bavarian Illuminati or comparative mystery social orders, however these connections are unverified.They are frequently asserted to plan to control world undertakings, by engineering occasions and planting operators in government and organizations, so as to increase political power and impact and to secure a New World Order. Fundamental to the absolute most generally known and intricate paranoid ideas, the Illuminati have been delineated as sneaking in the shadows and pulling the strings and levers of force in many books, motion pictures, network shows, funnies, feature diversions and music feature.If you enjoyed this documentary and would like to watch more related videos, click here.

In ‘Civilization: Is the West History?’, filmmaker Niall Ferguson asks how the Western civilization, from exhibiting an unpromising outlook in the 15th century, came to dominate the rest of the world; and if the West is about to be overtaken by the rest. This film comprises of a series of six parts and each of the six parts elucidates the main strengths of the West that made it so successful:Competition: The first part in the series begins in 1420 when England on the eve of the Wars of the Roses seemed quite primitive by contrast to Ming China that had a credible claim to be the most advanced civilization in the world.Science: The domination of West by East was an alarmingly plausible scenario in 1683, when the Ottoman army laid siege to Vienna, the capital of Europe’s most powerful empire; but Islam was defeated by the help of tact and Science.Property: This part looks into the reasons as to why North America succeeded while South America for so many centuries lagged behind. It shows how the two had much in common but they differed profoundly on individual property rights, the rule of law and representative government, which eventually made all the difference.Medicine: The fourth part shows how the French Empire consciously set out to civilize West Africa by improving public health as well as building a modern infrastructure. Yet in other European empires – notably Germany’s in southwest Africa – colonial rule led to genocide.Consumerism: This part illustrates how the world today is becoming more homogenous and, with increasingly few exceptions, big-name brands dominate main streets, high streets and shopping malls all over the globe.Work: The sixth element that enabled the West to dominate the rest was the work ethic, which extolled the spirit of Capitalism by working hard, saving, and accumulating capital.
