Fwd: The circle game . . .

---------- Forwarded message
From: John H


Round and round it goes and where it stops is on the heads of every American citizen.  We are the dupes and they are the puppet masters ruling the world at their whim while not so slowly squeezing the life out of the public both here and abroad – sometimes economically and sometimes physically.

Fwd: Jerry Bowyer on Forbes.com: "Exercise Which Maximizes Neurotransmitters?"



---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Jerry Bowyer 

Forbes.com: "Exercise Which Maximizes Neurotransmitters?"

I wrote recently about my interview with Phil Campbell, author of The Sprint 8 Cardio Protocol. Campbell's book is the fruit of 30 years of self-monitoring, coaching, medical testing, and academic research focused on finding the optimal exercise training program. The conclusion is that the center part of such a program should not be the widely recommended long-form aerobic session, but rather short-form exercise which takes the trainee quickly into anaerobic territory. To get the highest health gains overall, Campbell recommends 8 sprints at maximum speed spread out over a 20 minute time period, 3 times per week...

Fwd: Propaganda 101

From John H


For those of you who depend upon The New York Times for establishing a connection with the 'real world' should read and pay special attention to the attached article.  The most powerful propaganda effort ever waged is now in place and being managed by plutocracy through the main stream media.  And for those of you who believe heart and soul in the Democratic Party should absolutely watch the Real News Network interviews at the Peoples' Summit.

Fwd: Danny Chew Fundraiser - Final Reminder

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Carol 

Dear Bicycle-loving Friend,
As you may already know, we are holding a Fundraising Event for Danny Chew  on June 17th, to help raise funds for making his home handicapped-accessible, as well as for the uplhighly increased living expenses that come with being paralyzed. He is temporarily living in Ohio, but is coming home to Pittsburgh in a month. Time is of the essence!
The Fundraiser should be a great celebration with  food, beer, music, bicycle-related games and activities, as well as Danny himself.
(For details on the event, please look below)


If you cannot make it to the fundraiser, but would still like to contribute, here is a link to help Danny: https://www.helphopelive.org/campaign/12584. We are also accepting gifts-in-kind for our Silent Auction and Basket Raffle (there is a form attached to this letter, and arrangements will be made to pick up anything donated), so you have an opportunity to participate in those ways as well.

Just for the Record, I fit into all this by being one of the original cyclists in the Chew Cycling Crew...Danny's sister Carol and I were the first to check out the Thursday night bicycle rides at the American Youth Hostels, then other members of the family became interested, and well, the rest is - HIStory.

Please see the attached letter from Danny...

Be well everyone,
Susan Richter
