but GDX again had a closing tick of 11 million shares and GDXJ of 2.3 million shares. Absolutely massive volume on the day. I think if gold and silver hold up while the SM tanks we could be close to the end of the flush in the shares.

I’m always wrong and my retirement is headed toward zero because of the shares but we just might be close to a bottom regardless of what Hulbert says. Two weeks ago he said last time sentiment was so bad gold rallied $200.

We’ll see. Silver may be the key.

Good show on the whole grain information, although anything with wheat is a killer for those of us who are gluten intolerant.  I was happy to read what your information said about lignans because I baked peanut butter cookies with lots of pecans today, lol.

RT: Billion-dollar lawsuits claim GMO corn ‘destroyed’ US exports to China

RT: Billion-dollar lawsuits claim GMO corn ‘destroyed’ US exports to China

Reuters / Jim Young 

Reuters / Jim Young

Three class-action lawsuits filed Friday claim that agribusiness power Syngenta is to blame for depressed corn exports to China since the seed company released a genetically-engineered variant of the crop before it was approved by Beijing.

At issue is Syngenta’s 2009 release and distribution of its MIR162 genetically-modified corn known as Agrisure Viptera, which is engineered to fend off certain insects known to decimate corn crops. While approved for use in the United States, Chinese regulators have yet to sanction the export of Viptera.

Syngenta is responsible for “destroy[ing] the export of US corn to China,” which led to“depressed prices for all domestic corn,” according to Volnek Farms, the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit filed in an Omaha, Nebraska federal court. Volnek and others are claiming $1 billion in compensation.

The two other suits were filed in Iowa and Illinois federal courts, according to Courthouse News. In addition to monetary claims, the Nebraska and Iowa suits seek to enjoin Syngenta from cultivating and marketing MIR162, or Viptera.

In addition to alleging the destruction of the US corn export market to China, Iowa plaintiffs Cronin Inc. and Jim Ruba Jr., who say they do not even plant genetically-modified corn, claim that Syngenta offered “materially misleading statements relating to the approval status of MIR162 in China and the impact the lack of approval would have on the market.”

“Syngenta’s widespread contamination of the US corn and corn seed supply with MIR162, which will continue to foreclose the US export market to China in future years and will continue to lead to lower corn prices per bushel in the US market, as a result,”the Iowa plaintiffs added.

China’s importation of US corn is expected to rise, Nebraska plaintiff Volnek said, citing the US Department of Agriculture. But China ceased importing US corn after detecting MIR162 in shipments, Volnek and company added.

Though Viptera has been planted on only about three percent of US farm acreage, it is difficult to say for sure “that any shipments of US corn will not be contaminated with trace amounts of MIR162,” the Nebraska plaintiffs said.

The commingling of corn from various sources at corn distribution centers is “essentially impossible,” according to the Iowa complaint, which cites other major grain companies Archer Daniels Midland and Cargill, which do not accept Viptera.

Syngenta has been encouraged by the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) to stop selling Viptera, according to the Iowa claim. The NGFA has estimated that actions taken in China against US corn have caused prices to drop by 11 cents per bushel.

The Iowa suit alleges that the release of Syngenta’s Viptera caused the US-to-China corn export market to fall by 85 percent.

Syngenta has claimed that “the vast majority of corn produced in the US is used domestically,” and that exports are not as important, though the USDA says 20 percent of corn produced in the US is exported. These conflicting accounts led to accusations by Iowa plaintiffs that Syngenta has engaged in willful misrepresentation.

Nebraska plaintiffs allege “reckless disregard” for the commodity market.

“Syngenta’s decision to bring Viptera to the market crippled the 2013-14 corn export market to China,” they said.

In 2011, Syngenta requested in federal court that a grain elevator firm, Bunge North America, remove signs that said it would not accept Viptera-variety corn. The request was denied.

In April, the NGFA, a trade organization for grain elevators, reported that China had barred nearly 1.45 million tons of corn shipments since 2013, resulting in about $427 million in lost sales. China first halted shipments of American corn in November, as RT previously reported.

Concern over the safety of genetically engineered food may have played a role in a recent decision by Chinese officials to move away from GE production of the nation’s own. In August, China’s Ministry of Agriculture announced it would not continue with a program that developed genetically-modified rice and corn.

Very strange things going on, all at the same time. Maybe my old prediction of a meltdown II is finally going to happen. Dines thinks a global deflation started in 2011 at the 2011 highs in commodities. TPTB keep trying to bring back inflation, but WHERE?? In commodities? Houses? Stocks?

High commodity prices only brings on more supply and less use. Same with houses. Stocks too. Too high brings on fear and selling. TPTB like to fool themselves. They should have KNOWN better back in 1980 than to suppress wages of their employees and tax paying consumers.

Before 1980, all the “poor” people had plenty of money to spend for needs and wants. These days they’re on food stamps. We used to be able to use classified adds and sell all kinds of things. Used cars, boats, tools etc. Not anymore. Remember the Buy Lines Press?

MOGGY-great info, thanks-but recall that whole cereal grains have been the staple food of all the great civilisations of the world

Posted by Richard640 @ 15:15 on October 7, 2014  

Here’s what the grains can do–this is for brown rice but it basically applies to all of them–Moggy, ya know how all the progressive people say eat your fruits and veggies? Avoid carbs…well screw that noise–COMPLEX  carbs[whole grains] are what’s happening–they have as many and more antioxidants and phytonutrients as fruits and veggies


Phytonutrients with Health-Promoting Activity Equal to or Even Higher than that of Vegetables and Fruits

Research reported at the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) International Conference on Food, Nutrition and Cancer, by Rui Hai Liu, M.D., Ph.D., and his colleagues at Cornell University shows that whole grains, such as rice, contain many powerful phytonutrients whose activity has gone unrecognized because research methods have overlooked them.

Despite the fact that for years researchers have been measuring the antioxidant power of a wide array of phytonutrients, they have typically measured only the “free” forms of these substances, which dissolve quickly and are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream. They have not looked at the “bound” forms, which are attached to the walls of plant cells and must be released by intestinal bacteria during digestion before they can be absorbed.

Phenolics, powerful antioxidants that work in multiple ways to prevent disease, are one major class of phytonutrients that have been widely studied. Included in this broad category are such compounds as quercetin, curcumin, ellagic acid, catechins, and many others that appear frequently in the health news.

When Dr. Liu and his colleagues measured the relative amounts of phenolics, and whether they were present in bound or free form, in common fruits and vegetables like apples, red grapes, broccoli and spinach, they found that phenolics in the “free” form averaged 76% of the total number of phenolics in these foods. In whole grains, however, “free” phenolics accounted for less than 1% of the total, while the remaining 99% were in “bound” form.

In his presentation, Dr. Liu explained that because researchers have examined whole grains with the same process used to measure antioxidants in vegetables and fruits—looking for their content of “free” phenolics”—the amount and activity of antioxidants in whole grains has been vastly underestimated.

Despite the differences in fruits’, vegetables’ and whole grains’ content of “free” and “bound” phenolics, the total antioxidant activity in all three types of whole foods is similar, according to Dr. Liu’s research. His team measured the antioxidant activity of various foods, assigning each a rating based on a formula (micromoles of vitamin C equivalent per gram). Broccoli and spinach measured 80 and 81, respectively; apple and banana measured 98 and 65; and of the whole grains tested, corn measured 181, whole wheat 77, oats 75, and brown rice 56.

Dr. Liu’s findings may help explain why studies have shown that populations eating diets high in fiber-rich whole grains consistently have lower risk for colon cancer, yet short-term clinical trials that have focused on fiber alone in lowering colon cancer risk, often to the point of giving subjects isolated fiber supplements, yield inconsistent results. The explanation is most likely that these studies have not taken into account the interactive effects of all the nutrients in whole grains—not just their fiber, but also their many phytonutrients. As far as whole grains are concerned, Dr. Liu believes that the key to their powerful cancer-fighting potential is precisely their wholeness. A grain of whole wheat consists of three parts—its endosperm (starch), bran and germ. When wheat—or any whole grain—is refined, its bran and germ are removed. Although these two parts make up only 15-17% of the grain’s weight, they contain 83% of its phenolics. Dr. Liu says his recent findings on the antioxidant content of whole grains reinforce the message that a variety of foods should be eaten good health. “Different plant foods have different phytochemicals,”he said. “These substances go to different organs, tissues and cells, where they perform different functions. What your body needs to ward off disease is this synergistic effect—this teamwork—that is produced by eating a wide variety of plant foods, including whole grains.”

Lignans Protect against Heart Disease

One type of phytonutrient especially abundant in whole grains including brown rice are plant lignans, which are converted by friendly flora in our intestines into mammalian lignans, including one called enterolactone that is thought to protect against breast and other hormone-dependent cancers as well as heart disease. In addition to whole grains, nuts, seeds and berries are rich sources of plant lignans, and vegetables, fruits, and beverages such as coffee, tea and wine also contain some. When blood levels of enterolactone were measured in over 850 postmenopausal women in a Danish study published in the Journal of Nutrition, women eating the most whole grains were found to have significantly higher blood levels of this protective lignan. Women who ate more cabbage and leafy vegetables also had higher enterolactone levels.

We know that gold timers’ bearishness was only skin-deep, and that they stand ready to become bulls again at the drop of a hat

Hulbert HGNSI & Gold
October 7, 2014GoldGold, hgnsi, hulbert
Mark Hulbert checks in with some not so great news for gold bulls. Do you know what that news is? Gold bulls are alive, well and ready to call a bottom at the drop of a hat.

Gold market sentiment takes a big turn for the worse

According to Hulbert…

“On the contrary, we now know — courtesy of the HGNSI’s jump late last week — that gold timers’ bearishness was only skin-deep, and that they stand ready to become bulls again at the drop of a hat. True bottoms typically are accompanied by bearishness that is much more stubbornly held than that.”

This does not necessarily reflect on the gold market’s ability to take a counter trend rebound, especially since the reading below was taken on Thursday, before the big price drop on Friday and according to Hulbert, even after yesterday’s upside HGNSI was at -34%. I think that what he did not like seeing is how readily gold timers jumped bullish trying to be ‘the guy’ calling a bottom.

I think a rally can get going off of 1180, but bigger picture there very well could be some unfinished business; namely the business of killing off anyone who would be bullish on gold’s price*.

“If they’re forced to admit it, it must be really bad” Agreed 100%. They simply spread the butter too thin globally, making it harder to taste. Plus, most of the butter came from USA.

And we have less butter to share anyway. Since we borrowed butter from the future much of the butter we handed out. Is it $17 trillion? On the tab? Our shortfall of tax receipts from profits and wages.

It looks like an interesting site…always nice to know there is another ethical essential oil company out there.  Their immune system product may be excellent but I love to eat and much prefer to pamper my immune system with food.  Appreciate your input.

Foods to Boost the Immune System

With the fast food generation catching up in every household, it is now next to impossible for one to constantly keep in check what they consume and what not. It takes more than an apple a day to keep the doctor away. Even the healthiest of diets may sometimes contain food that is not always good for the body. However, behind every dark cloud there is always a silver lining. If there are foods that hamper the body, there are also the counterparts who make up for it. Here’s a list of 20 foods to boost the immune system.

1 – Cabbage: Cabbage is a great source of glutamine which is an amino acid that is essential for maintaining a healthy gut. It is further packed with nutrients such as sulforaphane – a chemical that enhances the body’s production of enzymes, which disarms the cell-damaging free radicals and keeps the risks of cancer at bay.

2 – Yogurt: The live active cultures, popularly known as probiotics found in yogurt, are healthy bacteria that keep the gut and intestinal tract free of disease-causing germs. A study from the University of Vienna in Austria found that a daily 7-ounce dose of yogurt was as effective in boosting the immune system as popping pills.

3– Mushrooms: Button mushrooms are high in selenium which can combat severe flu symptoms. Mushrooms further increase the production and activity of white blood cells, making them more aggressive. This is a good thing when one has an infection.

4 – Sweet potatoes: a sweet potato is high in vitamin A which helps build immunity against several serious diseases. Vitamin A plays a major role in the production of connective tissue, a key component of the skin. Sweet potatoes contain almost twice as much fibre as other types of potatoes hence it has a high fibre content which gives them a slow burning quality. This means their caloric energy is used more slowly and efficiently than a low-fibre carbohydrate.

5 – Fish: Shellfish such as oysters, lobsters, crabs and calms contain plenty of selenium what help the white blood cells produce cytokines – proteins that help clear the flu viruses out of the body. Salmon, tuna, mackerel, and herring are rich in omega-3 fats that reduce inflammation, increasing the airflow and protecting the lungs from colds and respiratory infections. They are vital immune boosters that help maintain overall fitness and they also provide protection against the damages caused by over-reactions to infections.

6 – Garlic: garlic is a potent immune booster owing to its nutritive, antifungal, and antiseptic properties. Studies indicate that when used raw, garlic provides protection against common colds, coughs, and chest infection. This is because garlic is a high source of vitamins (C, B1, & B6), minerals (phosphorous and iron) and sulfoxide alliin which fights infection and bacteria. Other studies suggest that garlic lovers who chow more than six cloves a week have 30 percent lower rate of colorectal cancer and 50 percent lower rate of stomach cancer. When applied to the skin, garlic beats topical creams like Tinactin and other antifungal agents in fighting athlete’s foot.

7 – Almonds: Almonds are rich in vitamin E that can ward off the upper-respiratory infections. They are advantageous for boosting energy as well.

8 – Spinach: Spinach is a rich source of Vitamin A &C, fibre and folic acid, which is a good source for dealing with bowel movement issues such as constipation due to its fibre properties. It is very helpful for maintaining healthy eyes and digestive tract.

9 – Carrots: Carrots contain loads of beta carotene which is a powerful phytonutrient that boosts the immune system’s production of infection-fighting natural killer cells and T cells. These cells are healthy and attack and kill off disease-ridden microbes. Carrots also contain falcarinol, a super compound that is a good anti-cancer agent. Scientists at Newcastle University’s School of Agriculture recently found that rats that were fed raw carrots had one-third lower risk of developing colorectal cancer.

10- Blueberries: Blueberries are rich in antioxidants such as Anthocyanin, Vitamin C and E that strengthens the immune system and keeps infections at bay. They are particularly helpful for eye diseases such as age related macular degeneration, which is common in older adults.

11 – Broccoli: Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable, rich in antioxidants. It is full of glucoraphanin, which helps the body to process the anti-cancerous compound sulforaphane. It is packed with nutrients such as Vitamin C and K, Beta carotene, calcium, potassium and carotenoid, making it an ideal choice for weight loss friendly diets and immunity builder. A consumption of 100 calories of broccoli will fill the body with 7 grams of protein, 10 grams fibre and a wide range of other extra nutrients.

12 – Olive oil: Olive oil has a rich content of antioxidant and is also an excellent remedy for rheumatoid arthritis. A diet rich in olive oil made products help the arterial blood pressure as well. Olive oil further reduces the risk of heart diseases and also helps in lowering the risks of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

13 – Nuts: They are extremely helpful for cardio functions and are valuable sources for Vitamin C which helps boost the immune system response. They also stimulate the production of natural killer cells thus eliminating the dangerous germ cells and cancer cells in the body. Although the intake of nuts can vary vastly from person to person, high alcohol intake in the body would benefit from higher consumption of these.

14 – Cinnamon: Cinnamon is most beneficial for people who suffer from type-2 diabetes. This is because it helps in controlling the blood sugar levels. It also helps in reducing the triglycerides and thus enhancing the body’s cells ability to metabolize sugar by up to twenty times.

15 – Tea: Black tea and Green tea both have the amino acid L-theanine, present in them abundantly. This amino acid helps to boost the immune system. Making it a habit to include these healthy foods in your diet will ensure that you have a robust immune system that keeps you active and sprightly through the seasons – in fair weather and rough!
