More Hard Hitting Words From The Dalai Lama About The Mass Brainwashing Of Society

The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet is always garnering a lot of attention, and for good reasons. Most recently, he told the world that simply praying is not the answer for the incident that occurred in Paris, as well as other similiar atrocities that seem to happen all over the globe. He stated that humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it, which makes no sense. If we created this mess, we should be the ones to solve it, not God.  His comments went viral as they resonated with so many people around the world who realize that action on a mass scale is required at this time to change the direction our planet seems to be going in.

Tell Me About It: My life is slipping away from me due to my porn habit

I am 27 and am struggling with my porn use. I have stayed off using it for nearly a month now and thought I was doing well, but then my resolve weakened and now I am back using it compulsively.
I had decided to stop using it so that I might have a better chance of actually dating someone, but in the month I was off it nothing happened. I find that it is really difficult to think about an actual sexual situation with someone and the panic is almost too much.

Ordinary kitchen spice that indicated a surprising reduction in the levels of Alzheimer's-like plaque

Discovered: Indian spice reduces Alzheimer's symptoms by 30%

Despite millions spent on drug research and development, one of the more promising treatments for Alzheimer's disease (a progressive brain disorder thataffects more than 5 million Americans) is found in a substance widely known for its ability to spice (and color) food. 
The compound curcumin, only found in turmeric, is a widely used spice found in Indian food, and is also popular in the cuisines of other South Asian countries like Nepal, Iran and Thailand. The bright yellow spice is familiar to fans of curry dishes, but it has been used in other preparations as well. For centuries, it has been used in Asian medicine.
Like other brightly colored foods (think blueberries, pomegranates and tomatoes), it is the compound that gives turmeric its color that makes it a powerful antioxidant — in this case, curcumin. And like the lycopene in tomatoes and the beta-carotene in carrots, bright orange-yellow curcumin has some seriously amazing health benefits.

Nurse recruitment problems at 'crisis point

Difficulties in recruiting and retaining nurses are at crisis levels with over 1,500 vacancies, a conference has heard.
The problem is most acute in the specialised elderly care sector and experts said retaining staff in areas where there are high stress levels, due to shortages, is a major issue.
Managing Director of PCQ Nurse Recruitment Paul Chandler said that the situation around the country was bleak and in the elderly sector alone, there were around 1,000 nursing vacancies.

Why has Ireland lost so many doctors and nurses?

The recruitment embargo introduced by the HSE in 2009 meant there were absolutely no staff jobs in the health service for the 1,500 nurses and 727 doctors graduating each year.
This coincided with aggressive overseas recruitment campaigns by health services inAustralia and the UK, which were experiencing acute shortages of healthcare staff
