The Truth About Your Birth Certificate


Your Birth Certificate Means You Have Been Bonded As A Slave

from Gabrielle

When a child is born, the hospital sends the original, not a copy, of the record of live birth to the State Bureau of Vital Statistics, sometimes called the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services (HRS). Each STATE is required to supply the UNITED STATES with birth, death, and health statistics. The STATE agency that receives the original record of live birth keeps it and then issues a Birth Certificate in the corrupted, ALL-CAPS version of the baby’s true name, i.e. JANE DOE SMITH, not Jane Doe Smith.

The Birth Certificate issued by the State is then registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce – – the Executive Office – specifically through their own sub-agency, the U.S. Census Bureau, which is responsible to register vital statistics from all the states. The word registered [ see note 1 below ], as it is used with commercial or legal based equity law, does not mean that the ALL – CAPS name was “merely” noted in a book for reference purposes. When a birth certificate is registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce, it means that the ALL-CAPS legal person named thereon has become a surety, or guarantor, a condition and obligation that is automatically and unwittingly assumed unless you rebut the presumption by effectively noticing them: “It ain’t me.”

“registered” Security – bond — Merriam Webster Dictionary of Law 1996.

SEE Memorandum of Law on the Name by Gordon Warren Epperly

“Guarantor” A person who pledges collateral for the contract of another, but separately, as part of an independent contract with the obligee of the original contract — Duhaime’s Law Dictionary.

It is not difficult to see that a state – created birth certificate with an ALL-CAPS name is a document, evidencing debt the moment it is issued. Once a state has registered a birth document with U.S. Department of Commerce, the Department notifies the Treasury Department, which takes out a loan from the Federal Reserve. The Treasury uses the loan to purchase a bond (the Fed holds a “purchase money security interest” in the bond) from the Department of Commerce, which invests the sale proceeds in the stock or bond market.

So the child just became the slave ….. can you see how this has happened? Until you take control, in other words “rebut”, you will remain the slave. Slaves do not have freedoms………. and that is what we all (or almost all) have been since the day we were born, and our innocent parents , and their parents, and their parents….. before us. Don’t you think it is time that we woke up to the truth?

For a while I have been receiving e-mails from a good friend who has asked me to investigate something weird about the Birth Certificates. He wanted me to take a look at them because they have certain numbers and other things printed on them that need an explanation.

When I looked at my own Birth Certificate, I noticed it was a copy of the original. So I went through old boxes and baby books that my Mom had saved before she died and found what I was looking for — my original Birth Certificate. It was brittle and yellowed with decades of age but — wow — it was NOT the original!

What I have learned since is kind of like discovering that you are part of the Matrix. It seems none of us have our original Birth Certificates — they are all copies. And the copies have a serial number on them, issued on special Bank Bond paper and authorized by “The American Bank Note Company.” Huh?

The truth is stranger than fiction. But here it is:

It seems that back in 1913 the United States was short of cash. World War I had depleted the treasury and there were several really bad financial panics — in 1907 especially — so the country needed to print more money than it had as equity to restore confidence in the money supply and get the economy back on its feet.

collateral.wilson roosevelt

When you or I need more money, we use something as collateral and go to a bank for a loan. When a country needs more money it has to go somewhere also. But in 1913 there wasn’t anywhere to go. So the US created the Federal Reserve Act. This established a private central bank (The Federal Reserve Bank) that would regulate the amount of money the US government was allowed to borrow and put in circulation. It also would expect to be repaid, like any bank, with interest.

After only 20 years things went from bad to worse. During Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency, in 1933, the US was unable to pay its debt. The county was bankrupt. The private banks that made up the Federal Reserve demanded their money and Roosevelt responded. He had to use the only thing left of any value to pay the banks and continue doing business with them — the citizens of our country. Us!

Exactly how all this was orchestrated is too lengthy to be addressed here, but this much can be told. The original birth or naturalization record for every U.S. Citizen is on file in the official records in Washington, D.C. (you get to keep a copy!) and the property and assets of every living U.S. Citizen is pledged as collateral for the National Debt!

Within two weeks and three days each Certificate of Live Birth is to be filed in Washington D.C. Evidence reveals that there is even a Federal Children Department established by the Shepherd/Townsend Act of 1922 under the Department of Commerce that appears to be involved in this process in some way. Every citizen is given a number (the red number on the Birth Certificate) and each live birth is valued at from 650,000 to 750,000 Federal Reserve dollars in collateral from the Fed.

This kind of makes you feel a little different when you look at Federal Reserve Chairman, Bernanke, doesn’t it?

OK. Let’s take a pause to look at the Birth Certificates [below]. You will see the red numbers and you will see the fact that it is, in reality, a “Bank Note.” Congratulations — you and I are commodities!

Names in “ALL CAPS” on Birth Certificates

Since the early 1960s, State governments have issued Birth Certificates to “persons” with legal fictional names using “ALL CAPS” names. This is not a lawful record of your physical birth, but rather the acknowledgement of the “birth” of the juristic, all-caps name. It may appear to be your true name, but since no proper name is ever written in all caps (either lawfully or grammatically) it does not identify who you are. The Birth Certificate is the government’s self-created document of title for its new property — you and me! In a way, it makes us a kind of corporation whose company name is the same as our real name, but written in ALL CAPS. This “corporation” then generates taxes and wealth over its lifetime and in this way repays the collateral that Uncle Sam borrowed from the Federal Reserve.

Remember that “Bond” thing printed on the bottom of the certificate?

Bond. I a: A usually formal written agreement by which a person undertakes to perform a certain act (as fulfill the obligations of a contract) . . with the condition that failure to perform or abstain will obligate the person . . to pay a sum of money or will result in the forfeiture of money put up by the person or surety. lb: One who acts as a surety. 2: An interest-bearing document giving evidence of a debt issued by a government body or corporation that is sometimes secured by a lien on property and is often designed to take care of a particular financial need. — Ibid. — Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Law (1996).
Banknote. A kind of negotiable instrument, a promissory note made by a bank payable to the bearer on demand, used as money, and in many jurisdictions is legal tender. Along with coins, banknotes make up the cash or bearer forms of all modern money.

Birth certificates are a form of securities called “warehouse receipts.” The items included on a warehouse receipt, as descried at §7-202 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law which governs commercial paper and transactions, which parallel a birth certificate are:

the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored…(residence)
the date of issue of the receipt…..(“Date issued”)
the consecutive number of the receipt…(found on back or front of the certificate, usually in red numbers)
a description of the goods or of the packages containing them…(name, sex, date of birth, etc.)
the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized agent…(municipal clerk or state registrar’s signature)
Birth certificates now appear to at least qualify as “warehouse receipts” under the Uniform Commercial Code. Black’s Law

Dictionary, 7th ed. defines:
Warehouse Receipt. “…A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with inventory as security.”

It is not difficult to see that a state-created Birth Certificate, with an ALL CAPS name is a document evidencing debt the moment it is issued.

Once a state has registered a birth document with the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Department notifies the Treasury Department, which takes out a loan from the Federal Reserve. The Treasury uses the loan to purchase a bond (the Fed holds a purchase money security interest in the bond) from the Department of Commerce, which invests the sale proceeds in the stock or bond market. The Treasury Department then issues Treasury securities in the form of Treasury Bonds, Notes, and Bills using the bonds as surety for the new securities.

This cycle is based on the future tax revenues of the legal person whose name appears on the Birth Certificate. This also means that the bankrupt, corporate U.S. can guarantee to the purchasers of their securities the lifetime labor and tax revenues of every citizen of the United States/American with a Birth Certificate as collateral for payment. This device is initiated simply by converting the lawful, true name of the child into a legal, juristic name of a person.

Legally, you are considered to be a slave or indentured servant to the various Federal, State and local governments via your STATE-issued and STATE-created Birth Certificate in the name of your all-caps person. Birth Certificates are issued so that the issuer can claim exclusive title to the legal person created thereby.

Sleep well, fellow slaves.

REAL STAR WARS – BATTLE AT STARGATE SUN 2012.3 (E.T.)[Earth Time] (NASA Video) – Planet Sized UFO Review (2012.3-2013.8) + The Sun Is A Stargate

You will learn 3 things from this post:

1) March 2012 NASA Satellites recorded hundreds of Planet Sized UFO’s Around our Sun and they seemed to be in a massive fight.

2) A review of Large Planet Sized UFO’s for August 2013 “They are still here”.

3) The Sun and all Stars are Stargates.

“We are not alone and never have been”


This first video is absolutely incredible. There are what appear to be a couple hundred massive UFO’s meeting and battling it out around our Sun, in this March 2012 Video Footage by U.S. Satellite’s.

They are using what appear to be Laser or Particle Beam Weapons upon each other.

Of course we don’t know what they are doing in reality. They could be just talking to each other. Or this could be some kind of Massive UFO Intergalactic meeting place.

But it looks like a fight!

All these UFO’s are massive in size. Most likely 50 – 100 in diameter or more. Some say as big as Earth or bigger. The sun is massive itself. Unless these craft were very large, you would not be able to see them at all.

And some of these ‘Particle/Laser Beam Weapons’ are shot across the Sun. How many thousands of miles or longer is that.

Watch it twice and then watch and stop every few seconds, and you will not believe what you are seeing.

The “Real” Star Wars are Here in our backyard.



ADMIN NOTE: This Video is similar to the above video except there are only 6 – 8 UFO’s present with a size estimate of Earth and larger. And these are the same size craft as in the above video.

Breaking News: NASA Finds Strange Objects Around Our Sun (part 2 of 2)

Assuming the following NASA images are real, the next 2:54 seconds is among the most important footage ever posted to the web.

In early 2010, I came across the original NASA images found in this video. But over the following weeks and months, more and more of these original images from NASA continued to reveal strange, planet size UFO objects that remained stationary around our sun.

It goes without saying that what you are about to see will either be far and beyond your belief system, or for those who are open minded are about to have their minds really opened.



Giant UFO enters then exits the Sun

This huge object was moving away from the sun, then it takes a turn and moves into the sun, we then see a solar eruption, then the object exits the sun.

Amazing huge cloaked UFO next to Mercury MUST SEE!!!

Huge cloaked UFO next to Mercury on SECCHI HI1-A on 12/01/11, appears when a CME hits it. Go to SECCHI and record this before it disappears.

Here’s the link

ADMIN NOTE: If you look closely at Mercury, you will notice another large Cloaked UFO on the other side of it.

Another video from NASA that actually utilized both Stereo Satellite’s spotted a third large UFO in the same area.
But that video has since been removed.

This shows that these huge UFO’s have effective ‘Cloaking Devices’, except around the Sun or Stars. The Sun’s Corona and Plasma Discharges, make the ‘Cloaks’ ineffective.

This could be the reason the Battle around the Sun. They can see each other in the Sun’s Corona.
Otherwise, they could be invisible to each other.

STARGATE: SUN – THE SUN IS A STARGATE: All Stars Are Stargates / Highly Advanced Extraterrestrial Technology Opens Gateway Into Our Solar System (Bonus: Mayan Evidence Of A Sun Stargate)

Scientific Theory states that the Sun or Stars could Provide the Raw Power for an Intergalatic Stargate.

Recent Mayan Discoveries and NASA and other Space Agency Images now Theorize that the Sun and all Stars are Stargates to different parts of the Universe for Planet Sized…”Starships?”

These Videos were both shot in March 2012, the same month as the Massive UFO Activity around the Sun was also photographed by U.S. Satellites.



MAR. 12: Massive TRIANGLE-SHAPED hole in the Sun’s corona recorded by NASA.

Yesterday I came across with a couple of absolutely astonishing images taken by NASA SDO spacecraft, where we see a monster hole in the Sun’s corona, with almost perfect shape of an isosceles triangle, placed EXACTLY at latitude and longitude zero and it’s still open.

Despite the lame explanations that debunkers and shills are gonna say, that is NOT an usual coronal hole and if I have to give it a shot, IMO that’s a STARGATE open by extraterrestrial technology.




Is Our Sun a MASSIVE UFO Stargate?
A MUST WATCH!!! Ancient Artifacts compared to recent solar events in 2012!!!

In November of 2011 there was a presentation by Nassim Haramein & Klaus Dona with newly discovered Ancient Artifacts, from deep inside a Mayan Pyramid in Mexico. All information will be released later this year, in a 2012 documentary titled:

“Revelations of the Mayans – 2012 and Beyond.”

However due to recent solar activity one of the artifacts has become VERY, VERY interesting!

All of his websites, webpages and articles/posts have been Censored from the net.

We hope this Video Presentation by him stays up for a while.

Also, a jaw dropping fact that we learn from this short video, is that;

“Most of the Satellites that Photograph the Sun, are owned by the Vatican!” WTH!

Physicist Nassim Haramein talks about unlocking the truth to Sacred geometry, fractals, the Mayan calendar and 2012, Crop Circles, cabalistic traditions, chakras, Sun Gods, God. Jesus and Freemasonry (more specifically, the Knights of Templar).

Nassim Haramein’s exciting work, prepare yourself for an exhilarating odyssey into hyperspace and beyond.

Haramein, who has spent his lifetime researching fields of physics from quantum theory to relativistic equations and cosmology, will lead you along a fascinating discussion geared to a layman’s understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe and creation that includes black holes, gravitational forces, dimensions, and the very structure of space itself – all of which are integral parts of his now-complete Unified Field Theory.

Haramein’s theory is currently in peer review process for publication in physics journals; however, the presentation does not end with the introduction of his theory alone, but includes the discussion of the path that he took to arrive at his views, which weaves between the texts and monuments of ancient civilizations, biology, chemistry and the primordial role of consciousness – all of which lend further credence to the science behind the theory.



FORD 65 MPG ECOnetic Fiesta: The 65 mpg Ford The U.S. Can’t Have – “It’s Time To Write Your Congressman Or Congresswoman And Ask Them WTH?! – T.D.P.

2014 Ford Fiesta Titanium Econetic in Depth Look


Ford’s ECOnetic Fiesta Gets 65 MPG. You Can’t Have One.
BY BEN MACK02.10.09

The ECOnetic Fiesta that Ford sells in Europe is a sporty little five-passenger hatchback that gets 65 mpg and emits less CO2 than a Toyota Prius. It is the greenest family car sold in Britain and just the thing to boost Ford’s sales – and image – at home. But Ford has no plans to bring it to America for one simple, stupid, reason.

It’s a diesel.

The Fiesta sports a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with direct injection. It produces just 88 horsepower, so acceleration is, shall we say, relaxed, but European customers don’t seem to mind. They’ve snapped up more than 42,000 of them since the car’s debut last fall.

But we can only look on with envy.

Diesels are huge in Europe, where they comprise about half of all cars sold. They’re slowly catching on in America as European automakers like Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz bring them here and the IRS offers tax credits to make them more attractive. Even Japanese automakers plan to roll them out in America. But the Big Three – which make and sell diesels in Europe – have shown little interest in offering them here because they don’t think it’s economically viable. They don’t see people buying them, so they can’t see making money on them.

“We don’t have a full scale energy policy in place in the U.S. that promotes the usage of diesel fuel,” Ford spokesman Said Deep told Wired.com. “So, we will bring the Fiesta to America in the most affordable manner.”

The US-bound Fiesta will arrive in 2010 with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gas-burning engine with fuel economy in the high 30s. Nice, but less than half what the diesel gets. It’s hard to stomach considering the ECOnetic has exploded on the EU market like a pinata full of pesos. Aside from the stellar sales figures, the car – which starts at less than $13,000 – has been lauded with awards from the likes of What Car? and CleanGreenCar.com. The Sun predicts it will be Britain’s best-selling car this year.

J.D. Power and Associates predict that diesel sales will account for as much as 14 percent of the
U.S. auto market by 2017. European automakers Mercedes-Benz and VW are leading the way with cars like the E320 Bluetec and the Jetta TDI, which was named Green Car of the Year by Green Car Journal. BMW may bring a diesel Mini to America in 2010. It helps that this new generation of clean diesel cars is eligible for a federal tax credit of $900 to $1,800.

Yet most Americans still associate diesels with 18-wheelers and buses, and taxes can make diesel as much as a dollar more a gallon than gasoline. Detroit is also committed to electric vehicles partly because American consumers don’t find diesel as sexy as hybrid or electric vehicle technology, even if diesels can deliver the same fuel economy at much lower cost.

“We have to change the perception of diesel in America and make sure it is not left out,” said Jeffrey Breneman, Executive Director of the U.S.
Coalition for Advanced Diesel Cars. “It’s here today, not tomorrow.”

The 65 mpg Ford the U.S. Can’t Have

Ford’s Fiesta ECOnetic gets an astonishing 65 mpg, but the carmaker can’t afford to sell it in the U.S.

If ever there was a car made for the times, this would seem to be it: a sporty subcompact that seats five, offers a navigation system, and gets a whopping 65 miles to the gallon. Oh yes, and the car is made by Ford Motor (F), known widely for lumbering gas hogs.

Ford’s 2009 Fiesta ECOnetic goes on sale in November. But here’s the catch: Despite the car’s potential to transform Ford’s image and help it compete with Toyota Motor (TM) and Honda Motor (HMC) in its home market, the company will sell the little fuel sipper only in Europe. “We know it’s an awesome vehicle,” says Ford America President Mark Fields. “But there are business reasons why we can’t sell it in the U.S.” The main one: The Fiesta ECOnetic runs on diesel.

Automakers such as Volkswagen (VLKAY) and Mercedes-Benz (DAI) have predicted for years that a technology called “clean diesel” would overcome many Americans’ antipathy to a fuel still often thought of as the smelly stuff that powers tractor trailers. Diesel vehicles now hitting the market with pollution-fighting technology are as clean or cleaner than gasoline and at least 30% more fuel-efficient.

Yet while half of all cars sold in Europe last year ran on diesel, the U.S. market remains relatively unfriendly to the fuel. Taxes aimed at commercial trucks mean diesel costs anywhere from 40 cents to $1 more per gallon than gasoline. Add to this the success of the Toyota Prius, and you can see why only 3% of cars in the U.S. use diesel. “Americans see hybrids as the darling,” says Global Insight auto analyst Philip Gott, “and diesel as old-tech.”

None of this is stopping European and Japanese automakers, which are betting they can jump-start the U.S. market with new diesel models. Mercedes-Benz by next year will have three cars it markets as “BlueTec.” Even Nissan (NSANY) and Honda, which long opposed building diesel cars in Europe, plan to introduce them in the U.S. in 2010. But Ford, whose Fiesta ECOnetic compares favorably with European diesels, can’t make a business case for bringing the car to the U.S.


First of all, the engines are built in Britain, so labor costs are high. Plus the pound remains stronger than the greenback. At prevailing exchange rates, the Fiesta ECOnetic would sell for about $25,700 in the U.S. By contrast, the Prius typically goes for about $24,000. A $1,300 tax deduction available to buyers of new diesel cars could bring the price of the Fiesta to around $24,400. But Ford doesn’t believe it could charge enough to make money on an imported ECOnetic.

Ford plans to make a gas-powered version of the Fiesta in Mexico for the U.S. So why not manufacture diesel engines there, too? Building a plant would cost at least $350 million at a time when Ford has been burning through more than $1 billion a month in cash reserves. Besides, the automaker would have to produce at least 350,000 engines a year to make such a venture profitable. “We just don’t think North and South America would buy that many diesel cars,” says Fields.

The question, of course, is whether the U.S. ever will embrace diesel fuel and allow automakers to achieve sufficient scale to make money on such vehicles. California certified VW and Mercedes diesel cars earlier this year, after a four-year ban. James N. Hall, of auto researcher 293 Analysts, says that bellwether state and the Northeast remain “hostile to diesel.” But the risk to Ford is that the fuel takes off, and the carmaker finds itself playing catch-up—despite having a serious diesel contender in its arsenal.

| Week at the wheel | Ford Fiesta ECOnetic | 4 Out Of 5 Stars Rating ****

Inside & Out: 4 Stars ****

At first glance, there’s little to distinguish the ECOnetic model from other Fiestas in the ranks of Ford’s supermini range. It has the same neat styling and crisp lines. However, peer closer and you’ll see the ECOnetic sits 10mm lower to the ground, which is the same amount as the sporty Zetec S model, though in the ECOnetic’s case it’s to do with improving efficiency rather than handling. There are also rear wind deflectors to better manage the flow of air over and around the Fiesta for less drag to help with fuel economy, while underneath there’s a shroud around the engine to also help lower drag. Take a peek at the tyres and you’ll see they are low rolling resistance items.

On the inside, the ECOnetic again looks much like any other Fiesta, with its cleverly detailed dash, comfortable seats and plenty of space in the front. Adult rear seat passengers will find legroom a little tight, but otherwise the Fiesta is a match for any rival on the space front. The only giveaway for the ECOnetic model inside is the gear shift indicator on the dash to tell the driver the optimum time to change gear for the best economy. As for the boot, there’s no spare wheel as Ford deems it excess weight and an enemy of economy, but the boot itself is the same size as any other Fiesta’s.

Engine & Transmission: 4 Stars ****

The 1.6-litre turbodiesel powering the ECOnetic model is not the full bore 109bhp unit we’ve been used to seeing in other Ford models. In its place, we have an 89bhp common rail turbodiesel that makes a relatively relaxed 150lb.ft of torque. In not overstraining the engine for ultimate power and push, Ford has pulled off a masterstroke. It may not be lightning quick off the mark – 0-62mph takes 12.3 seconds and top speed is 111mph – but the ECOnetic feels incredibly flexible and relaxed. The acceleration is sufficient to stay with traffic away from the lights and on the motorway there’s no need to swap down a gear to keep up.

Let the Fiesta ECOnetic do its stuff in the top ratio of its five-speed manual gearbox and it will happily propel you along with no fuss, no drama and barely any noise. Use the gears a bit more and the engine remains refined and it’s quite happy to spool up to the red line without recourse to coarseness. The five-speed manual gearbox is every bit as slick, light and accurate to operate as we’ve come to know and love from Ford gear shifts. A revised final drive ratio helps lower the revs at any given speed compared to a standard comparable Fiesta.

Ride & Handling: 5 Stars *****

It’s a Fiesta, so the ECOnetic does corners better than any other fuel miser supermini. This is a fact of life. The Fiesta is the best driving supermini money can buy and switching the suspension to economy settings by lowering it 10mm has done nothing to undermine this. If anything, the ECOnetic feels even more sublimely sure-footed around corners than other base model Fiestas so you can carry more speed, brake less and save more fuel. What a brilliant principle: make a car that’s more fun and involving to drive to save fuel. Ford, we applaud you.

Along with the twinkle-toed handling, the Fiestas steering is spot on. The electric assistance doesn’t rob it of feel yet it gives just the right amount of help whether parking in a tight space or swapping lanes on the motorway. Throw in a ride that offers superb control with top rank comfort, as well as excellent refinement, and you have a supermini package that can easily fool you into thinking this is a car from one or two classes above.

Equipment, Economy & Value for Money: 4 Stars ****

To endow the ECOnetic with its superb 76.3mpg combined economy and 98g/km carbon dioxide emissions, Ford has made some changes to the spec. There’s a reprogrammed ECU, low rolling resistance tyres, altered final drive ratio and the various aerodynamic aids mentioned above. However, the ECOnetic also does without standard air conditioning, which helps lower the price when compared to a 1.6 TDCi Zetec model. Go for air con as an option and the price is the same as the Zetec, though the Zetec has standard alloy wheels where the ECOnetic makes do with steel wheels and plastic trims.

However, we’re not going to carp on too much as the ECOnetic can manage more than 750 miles between fuel fills and during our week with the car the fuel gauge needle moved oh-so slowly over more than 400 miles of driving. Group 4 insurance is reasonable too and choosing the five-door model over the three-door only adds £300 to the final bill. The Fiesta ECOnetic is more expensive than some rivals, but it also looks set to hold its value very well to help offset this.

Overall: 4 Stars ****

We were already big fans of the Ford Fiesta thanks to its natty looks, comfort and, of course, the class-defining way it drives. With the ECOnetic, Ford has retained all of the essential bits we love about the Fiesta while bringing superb economy and emissions to the mix. Our only reason for not awarding the Fiesta ECOnetic a coveted full five-star rating is the price: it’s notably more than rivals from SEAT and Skoda. That said, if we were to put our cash where our cakehole is, we’d plump for the Fiesta.

FRESH BABY BITES: Salt for Babies: Yes! – Natural, Healthy Baby Foods

Salt for Babies: Yes!
Posted by freshbabybites on Oct 24, 2012 in Expert Advice

This week we have a guest post from certified nutritionist and yoga teacher Katie Louderback. Kim connected with Katie at the Intro to Solids Class at the Day One Center in San Francisco. We asked her to give us some insights into salt for babies, especially now that we’ve added Baked Bites to our menu.

Salt is actually beneficial for babies!

katie louderbackI am a Certified Nutrition Consultant that focuses on nourishing the whole family. In addition to teaching about nourishing pregnancy, I teach classes on starting solids for babies and toddler nutrition. Salt is always a big topic of conversation in my classes. There are some popular websites and books that recommend completely restricting salt from a baby’s diet. I disagree and believe that unrefined salt is a healthy component of a baby’s diet.

There is a reason that salt is one of the five flavors that we taste in food (along with sweet, bitter, sour and unami/savory) and why our food tastes better with salt. The two main components of salt are sodium and chloride. We need both of these elements for survival and since our bodies cannot make them, we must get them through our food. In ancient cultures salt was considered a holy food and Plato described salt as “especially dear to the gods.”

Throughout history salt has been traded by different cultures and used as a flavoring and preservative. It has only been in recent history that salt has been looked upon as an unhealthy food that should be severely restricted or avoided. These recommendations make no distinction between refined and unrefined salt and they don’t take into account the nutritional benefits of unrefined salt.

The white table salt that is so ubiquitous in our society has been highly refined. The refining of salt uses many processes and chemicals to strip salt of the trace minerals. All of the research highlighting the negative effects of salt on the body has been done using refined sea salt. I agree that we should limit or eliminate this type of salt in our diets.

Unrefined sea salt is very different from its refined counterpart. In its natural state salt contains eighty highly absorbable trace minerals such as iodine, magnesium, calcium, potassium and bromide. These minerals are naturally found together and in proportions that support many processes in the body. For example, salt supports metabolism, detoxification, hydration, moving nutrients through the body, hormone production and the immune system. Salt is also essential for the growth and development of the brain.

Small amounts of unrefined salt have always been a part of traditional diets for babies. Nina Planck, author of Real Food for Mom and Baby, writes about recipes from traditional baby food books that nourished many generations of babies all of which contain a “pinch of salt”. In the book Super Nutrition for Babies authors Katherine Erlich, M.D. and Kelly Genzlinger encourage the use of unrefined sea salt in a baby’s diet and state, “Particularly, unrefined salt is important for proper digestion and nutrient assimilation and thus serves to bolster the immune system.”

Pink salt is good for babiesSalt is only white once it has been refined and bleached so unrefined salt will have a color like beige, grey or pink. I recommend Celtic sea salt or Himalayan salt and adding small amounts of unrefined salt to any baby food you make.

We’ll be adding a pinch of pink himalayan salt to our new Baked Bites. Thanks for the suggestion, Katie!
Happy feeding,
Expert Blender (and salt lover!)

to try and do what this group of women has done in California.

We are sure they wouldn’t mind helping out with at least advice. They have done most of the hard work in starting this most useful bussiness.

We at the T.D.P. will assist as much as we can. Good Luck.
At the very least, they have alot of good fresh Baby Food Recipes at their website.

50 plus+ MPG CARS NOT ALLOWED IN AMERICA: 50 Plus MPG Cars Not Allowed In The U.S. or Canada


Admin Note: Unable to locate any videos on YouTube about any of the following vehicles. Total Censorship, of any cars in the World that get over 50 MPG on Google and Youtube in America!


50 plus MPG cars not allowed in the U.S. or Canada

Jim Stone, July 12, 2013

Americans get guilt tripped by their own government for driving huge gas sucking cars. Americans are called wasteful, and are often shown graphs of how much energy they use compared to the rest of the world. But what if the problem is not the American people, but those who govern them?

The following report is intended to be a wake up call for the American people. There are no tricks here, such as quoting imperial gallons, referencing tiny cars, electric cars, or even hybrids. These cars are straight up 50 plus mile per gallon winners which are banned for sale in the U.S., and if you think you can bring one home, think again, in America such cars are allowed a 30 day visit upon crossing the border, after which if they are found on American soil they get impounded and if not immediately shipped out of the country thereafter they are destroyed.

The U.S. government quotes as a reason for such behavior that said cars are “not up to American standards”. But what about Europe, where they are allowed? European standards are every bit as high as American standards, (BMW vs Ford) but with a simple quote from the government, American people will turn their nose and say if it is not up to American standards we do not want it here. But under all of this is a damning reality – there is nothing wrong with these cars other than the fact that they are too efficient and will reduce corporate profits as a result.


Lets get started

With a combined mileage of 52.8 U.S. mpg and an even higher highway mpg, the Urban Cruiser SUV crossover by Toyota, which is a European version of the Scion XD features front wheel drive for the ultimate mileage and if you are willing to sacrifice and get the 4 wheel drive version, you will suffer in life with a combined mileage of 48 mpg. Highway mileage is considerably higher which will help make any vacations enjoyable. Al Gore is not happy with this one, so you can forget about it in the U.S.


With a highway mileage of 56 mpg per U.S. gallon, the Nissan Qashqai SUV crossover would be sure to make any carbon tax junkie shiver with dread. Fortunately the American version delivers only 26 highway mpg (22 combined) so the local carbon tax tyrant can rest easy. I would like to ask HOW ON EARTH the difference could be so huge. True, the ultimate mileage is compliments of a diesel engine but that cannot account for such a severe mileage cut. The American version has got to be intentionally detuned to deliver horrific comparable mileage. And that is not the end of it, on E85 fuel which is rapidly being forced on the American people, the mileage drops to an amazingly low 18/23which is not only good for the oil companies, it´s damaging to the U.S. economy which would be better off having that money go toward house payments and durable goods. This much of a difference in efficiency between U.S. and European versions is not happening by accident, it can only be intentional economic sabotage.


Here’s a good one

With 78.5 imperial miles per gallon highway, the 1.6 blue motion TDI Volkswagen Passat wagon is definitely forbidden in America, where in the smaller American gallons it would deliver a carbon tax blood curdling 65.4 highway mpg. I never laughed at the 70 mpg carburetor even as a kid. How would that do you on vacation? And even city fuel mileage comes in at over 50 miles per U.S. gallon. Ever see National Lampoons vacation? The car is THAT big. They are flat out banned in America, and if you manage to get one into the states, you will be allowed 30 days to leave with it or it will be impounded and crushed.

I looked into this topic, and when it comes to cars like this they really are banned even if purchased elsewhere and really will get taken by the government if you do not get them out of the country on time. Take a look at what an American who rented one of these in Europe had to say when he got home and could not buy one even though they are manufactured in America and shipped out of the country.


And now, the punch line

This is the 261 MPG volkswagen I mentioned a few months ago. Yeah, that station wagon delivering 65 U.S. MPG looks pretty good for an American family, but 261 mpg is pretty tempting. Perhaps I’d spring for it, and certainly if I man
aged to get one into Mexico it would not get crushed. But don’t even think about approaching the U.S. border with this one, if 65 MPG from a large station wagon will get your car taken away by the FED, this bad boy would land you in prison.

It ended up getting ridiculed for only achieving a combined mileage of 160 MPG in U.S. gallons (192 combined in Imperial gallons), but come on now, at that point, WHO CARES. Even at 160 MPG combined, which means the highway mpg is well into the 200’s, this particular car exposes the fuel mileage lie so harshly that there is absolutely no recovery or hiding from the truth, even Europeans are getting scammed at 65 mpg while Americans are getting more than raped.


How long are Americans going to continue to tolerate a government that can’t even be honest about fuel economy, all the while that same government back stabs the American psyche with illusions of wastefulness?

If you take the time to wade through all the censorship, you will eventually discover that there are over 20 full sized cars, including 10 SUV’s that get combined mileage figures over 50 U.S. MPG, and that’s not counting econoboxes. Even Renault has a 4 door hatch back that gets over 80 combined imperial MPG and pushes well over 100 imperial mpg on the highway. ( Megane expression pictured here.) This equates to 65 US MPG combined, 85 mpg highway, and though it is not a full sized car, it could hardly be called an “econobox”.

Americans need to stand up and demand the government to stop censoring search results to prevent Americans from learning the truth elsewhere. Americans need to stand up and call the government on the carpet over the lies that “40 MPG can be achieved in the future” all the while even American car companies such as Ford are producing 65 plus MPG cars for sale on foreign markets right on American soil. It is time to end the lie, and tell these scamming frauds in our government to STICK IT.

If there is any “conspiracy” you could use to wake Americans up, it is this one, these cars are real and not just a bunch of blurry UFO photos. You cannot let the truth slip away on the basis of “the cars not being up to American standards”, especially when those standards are forced to include having always on cell connections to every car that can be used to commit murder when the government deems fit as they did in the case of Hastings.

There is nothing better about American “improvements” or “standards” that is in any way more beneficial to the people than the European counterparts, and forcing every car to give the government the option to murder via wire is an “improvement” every American can certainly live without. I’d take a fuel economy improvement over that ANY DAY.

“Time for Change!”

“You only have privacy insofar as the powers that be are uninterested in you. As soon as you get on some bureaucrat’s radar screen, you can kiss your constitutional rights goodbye.”

ADMIN NOTE: I now use a full piece of blank paper I keep by the computer, so I can cover up the entire computer screen every time I punch up and click off a google ad, so I don’t have their ad image downloaded into my brain as much.
How sad? Google is becoming quite sickening.

UPDATE: 8 out of 10 clicks were just google ads that had to be clicked away. Jesus H. Freaking Christ!

Google is Pure SHIATE!


Online Comment:

Google has in just a few months dropped support for open standards, including my much beloved Google RSS. Additionally, other services are being forcefully integrated into the mess called Google+, I found this out in a hard pickle when my main Gmail was being attacked by spam messages, and that isn’t the problem – the problem is I can’t change my YouTube email address because Google is on “consumer lock-in” – integrating everything together. The crazy part is I don’t even give this email out to “just anybody” (I have another email address), so I don’t know who sold my address.

I also find that every “new feature” or “improvement” doesn’t really feel that way to me. The new Google Maps for example, its a step back from the outgoing version (imho). But this has nothing to do with eMail or feeds, rather just further spoils everything.

I could go on. . ., but to keep it short, Google, is in other words, the new AOL: a separate shelter from the open web, with very limited interoperability.

With that, what alternatives can I look into? Keep in mind I’m trying to pick services that are not integrated too tightly to any given provider and where there’s a clear and predictable business direction.


At the T.D.P. we are getting multiple complaints and frustrations about Google’s Ads everywhere with every click on the computer. I’ve had to click away 4 ads for every 2 computer command clicks. 6 clicks instead of just 2. There have been no Privacy Complaints, though.

Sometimes, you have to click away 2 google ads for every 1 computer command ‘click’. That’s just too much.

Well it’s now time to start to do something about it.

Time to start kicking Google, Youtube and their Email Services “To The Curb!”

12 Alternatives to Gmail

Gmail, for many, has become the go-to email solution due its advanced options, including an integrated chat function and access to other Google features that help you keep up with your Google Plus buddies. Because the service is so feature-packed, some say it is the best out there for both personal and professional use.

But Gmail is definitely not the end-all when it comes to email accounts. There are some others that can give it a run for its money. Don’t believe it? Here are 15 alternatives to Gmail you might want to consider.

1. Bigstring

Have you ever sent an email that you wished you could snatch back before your recipient read it? Bigstring, while maybe not as all-encompassing as Gmail, is an email service that lets you retrieve your emails before they get read, as well as destroy emails, recall and change them. It gives you full control, which is something most people prefer. Also, you can set a limit on the number of times your recipient reads an email. It’s actually a very nice alternative if you don’t need tons of other features.

2. FastMail

FastMail is a free business and personal email service that is growing in popularity. Similar to Gmail, it offers tons of email storage. Also, it gives the option to make instant photo galleries and offers a backup service. Plus, you can open a family account that allows you to manage everyone’s information in one control panel.

3. GMX

The GMX email service is a bit different because it allows you to round up all of your email accounts and build one account in its server. Through GMX, you can access your mail from either your phone or your web browser. Also, you can store up to 5GB in your personal email account with an amazing 50MB per message.

4. Hotmail

Hotmail has been around for ages and is still a major player in the email world thanks to its ever-evolving interface, implemented calendar and backup options. The chatting function may not be as well integrated as the one found on Gmail, but it’s still quite a nice alternative.

5. Hushmail

If you want to keep your emails on the “hush,” or you basically want to keep your emails safe from prying eyes, Hushmail may be a good alternative to Gmail. This service adds PGP encryption to every email that goes out, helping to keep your messages secure. Also, the application works well with Blackberry and iPhone, also offering optional Outlook Integration.

6. Inbox.com

Inbox.com is one of the better alternatives to Gmail because it offers a whopping 5GB of storage, along with a solid interface. What’s cool about this service is that you can access your Inbox.com account via the web or through POP in your email program. The downside? IMAP isn’t supported and some of the tools used for organizing mail could be a bit simpler.

7. Lavabit

Lavabit is a POP3 email provider that offers good email options like ample storage and a massive outgoing message size (64MB). One cool feature is that you get to encrypt your files before sending them across the Internet. Also, Lavabit offers antiviral protection, which is a major bonus.

8. Mail.com

Mail.com is a relatively advanced email service, offering the basics along with unlimited storage space and spam protection. Also, it has integrated Facebook and Twitter, and provides access to national news stories. One complaint some have is that it isn’t fantastic when it comes to mail organization.

9. Shortmail

If you have grown accustomed to leading a Twitter lifestyle then you might fall in love with this unique email option. Shortmail places emphasis on easy, fast and effective communication by limiting each email to 500 characters per message. Of course, the downside to this type of account is not being able to send longer messages when you’d like. However, longer emails can be forwarded.

10. Yandex Mail

Yandex Mail isn’t as well-known as some others on the list, but it may be worth a try if you are looking for an alternative. It offers unlimited free storage and an attractive, easy-to-use interface. Also, this service allows you to connect to your other e-mail services like Gmail and Yahoo. Another cool feature is SMS notification to recipients, as well as one that allows you to insert cards and videos.

11. Zoho Mail

The free version of Zoho Mail offers personalized email and instant messaging options that come without advertisements. But what’s really nice about this service is its remote and offline functions, 2-way sync, and mobile sites that are perfectly optimized for both smartphones and tablets.

12. Gawab.com

Gawab gives email tracking (a method to find out if users obtained your email), 10GB of storage area, along with other goodies. But most importantly, it provides built-in support for foreign character encodings, for example Arabic UTF-16. In case you write lots of email in Arabic and are unhappy together with your current email provider, take a look at Gawab.

Alternative Video Sharing Sites

ADMIN NOTE: Unable to locate any Alternative Video Sharing Site videos on YouTube. 🙂

Here’s a short list of free video hosting sites that you can use to display your streaming video content – apart from YouTube, that is. Most of these provide code for individual videos to enable you to embed them in your site directly. I’ll try and include a couple of lines highlighting the main features & USP (Unique Selling Proposition) of each, wherever possible. The list is alphabetically arranged and not in the order of usefulness or popularity.

1. AtomUploads *** A video uploading and sharing service by AtomFilms – which is a division of the MTV Networks. As a result you can find a lot of unique web-shows hosted at this site. Not much information is available about their hosting features. However, as a MTV service you can expect the standards to be quite high. Features channel based organisation and member groups / communities.

2. blip.tv *** promises to bring to you shows – the kind of stuff you might find on television but won’t. Highly rated by PC World and Business 2.0 magazines this site syndicates its content with the likes of AOL Video, Yahoo! Video, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, MSN Video, Google Video etc. thus effectively multiplying your reach by millions. If you’ve got what it takes to create a great show, it may even get broadcast on this TV channel that blip.tv owns. And if your show’s a hit, they allow you to pick your own advertisers and earn revenue. Flash, QuickTime, DivX, 3gp – more or less all major formats are supported.

3. BrightCove *** lets you build and launch your own internet TV station. You can have your channel up and running within minutes and retain full control over the program schedule. Videos uploaded by other users can be incorporated into your shows too. Your channel is syndicated with other major players on the net and you can earn revenue through advertising as well as video sales. Features a pretty eye-candy interface.

4. ClipShack *** is a community for videophiles – a place for sharing your videos with the world. Its run by Reality Digital, Inc. – a company with years of experience in catering to the multimedia needs of the corporate sector. Pretty basic interface.

5. Crackle *** (formerly known as Grouper) is a Sony Pictures Entertainment company. It acts as a streaming entertainment network dedicated to the discovery and development of pioneering video creators across a diverse range of genres. Crackle supports multi-platform syndication to Sony devices, IPTV and major social networking sites. Crackle is all about “launching tomorrow’s stars today” and can serve as a serious platform for aspiring directors. There are contests going on all the time to hand-pick the most innovative creators and launch them in collaboration with Sony Pictures and other leading media partners.

6. Dailymotion *** is another humongous hosting cum sharing service. They have the standard set of features wrapped with a strict set of rules that prohibits any kind of adult or explicit content. If there’s one thing that sets it apart from the crowd – it’s the JukeBox feature. Video-Blogging and direct uploads from webcam supported too.

7. Flick Life *** counts among the handful of revenue sharing hosts that there are. You get to broadcast your own videos to the world at no cost at all and yet get some moollah in return. Features buddy lists. FlickLife is a privately owned company based in Columbus, Ohio.

8. Flukiest *** is an interactive community for sharing and managing digital media by artists, photographers, designers, musicians, writers, directors, producers, and technologists – which in other words mean it’s a photo and video hosting service. There seems to be a tagging engine at large judging from the humongous tag-cloud you encounter on the front page. Other services include email, buddy list, forums, blog and a separate music video section.

9. FLURL *** allows you to upload and share videos under a set of pre-existing categories. Their rating system consists of a meter that displays the FLURL or HURL rating of a video. Adult content can be found profusely (there’s a separate above 18 section). Adult Filtering options are available but turned off by default for any new visitors.

10. go fish *** Fish is a largish hosting site which helps you promote your directorial skills. The primary objective of this site is to give you your 15 minutes of fame. Documentaries, comedies, spoofs, pranks, and even episodic dramas – all are welcome here. The interface is pretty dense (and dark) and will particularly appeal to the gamers. It’s pretty easy to use though. If you’re seeking a wide exposure for your work, this could be the host for you.

11. Jumpcut Beta *** strives to make the uploading & sharing of videos and photos a fun and easy thing. Apart from instant publishing and user communities – Jumpcut has this unique Remix feature using which you can create your own version of someone else’s video without destroying the original work. For this they’ve made available a very easy-to-use and feature rich online video editing tool. At the end of your creative spree, you can let the community decide whether you’ve managed to outperform the original director.

12. Kewego *** This is a German service and the interface language is Deutsch. However, the registration process and controls are pretty similar to any of the common video hosts – so you shouldn’t find it too difficult to make your way around this one, even if you don’t know the language. Incidentally, there is a small link right at the bottom of the page that allows you to switch to the English version. Keep in mind though – majority of the audience is German.

12. LiveDigital Beta *** A community based video sharing service with specialised channels where you can upload related videos. Consequently jumping channels brings up a horde of thematic videos. Permitted uploads include photos, audio tracks and videos. Features nearly unlimited (?) uploads – which in other words mean that they probably have paid, high-storage plans as well. There’s an inbuilt social networking feature in this and hence they allow you to deck up your profile in your own way using an advanced template creator. Drag & drop functionality for quick setup of photo / video journals.

13.LiveVideo *** Favorites, Subscriptions, Videos, Photos – nothing out of the place that can make this service really stand out. It’s got a good blend of general features including a Hit or Miss rating system. However, it’s probably one of the very few which offer direct recording from webcams (see Viddler and VideoEgg).

14. Myubo *** comes in four linguistic flavours – Czech, Deutsch, English and Slovak. It sports a mechanism to upload, view and share live and pre-recorded video via mobile 2.5G and 3G networks such as GPRS, EDGE, CDMA or UMTS, web and fixed IP networks. Pretty much covers the whole consumer wireless spectrum. Among offered features are channel based organisation, Mobile TV and user communities.

15. Revver *** has a clever mechanism that helps it track and monetize the uploaded videos as they spread virally across the internet – so “no matter where your creativity travels, you benefit“. Your uploaded video is paired with a targeted advertisement and the revenue is split 50/50 with you. Those who share and spread the videos get to keep part of the spoils too. 20% of the ad revenue is handed to them. Of particular interest to the developers is the Revver API, which allows one to build a video-sharing site complete with user accounts, uploading, sharing tools and access to the full Revver library of videos. The bandwidth is covered by Revver and the ad revenue is split three ways – you, Revver and the content creator.

16. Selfcast TV *** A basic hosting service with standard features and channel-based organisation. Allows adult content and has a SafeSearch filter in place. One upper it has compared to other services is that it allows for direct mobile based uploads through MMS (currently in UK & Europe only).

17. Soapbox *** is one service that I probably don’t have much to talk about. It’s part of the reknowned MSN Suite of online applications. Offers all the standard bookmarking, commenting, tagging, rating and sharing features and has it’s own flash-based player.

18. Spike-ifilm *** service by iFILM that has an extensive library of movie clips, music videos, short films, video game trailers, action sports and its popular ‘viral videos’ collection. Since October 2005, it’s a part of the Viacom network – so one can definitely trust this one. Of course you can expect all the latest and hottest of the videos here and can upload your own too. Has clips of daily TV shows from around the world.

19. Stage6 *** A video hosting service by DivX for people who love videos. DivX, if you remember, is the group which came up with a similarly named format of video encoding for online distribution. DivX videos can be of pretty high quality and are rendered through a custom player which is available as a plug-in for most famous browsers. According to the Stage6 team, “Anyone can become a publisher, anyone can build an audience and every video available on Stage6 is compatible with over 70 million consumer electronics devices from every major manufacturer, making it easy to play back Stage6 videos on your television or portable device.“

20. Tuberoo *** Tuberoo and its sister concern Shoutwire – both of which offer video hosting and sharing services. Tuberoo recently opened up the Beta Testing of its mobile video service which will send out one Tuberoo video to your mobile everyday. Adult & explicit content is allowed and there’s no SafeSearch filter in effect.

21. Viddler *** site with simplistic but likable Web 2.0 style interface that allows you to upload, enhance and share your digital videos. Similar to VideoEgg, they offer a mechanism through which you can directly record / upload your videos using your webcam without requiring the use of any third-party recording tool. Viddler employs a mechanism which searches for content inside the videos, thus making your uploads search results relevant. Has their own flash-based player.

22. VideoEgg *** features one of the slickest interfaces I’ve come across and offers a bag of really useful online video manipulation tools (cropping, resizing, direct recording etc.). Allows sharing through email, direct HTML embedding and Permalinks. The videos are displayed through their own interactive embeddable flash-based player. High-end sites with > 1 million visitors per month can sign-up for a revenue sharing partnership where ads are displayed beside each video and the revenue handed down to the partner. Employs content-filtering to weed out inappropriate videos.

23. vidiLife *** basic video uploading and sharing site. Has the look & feel of YouTube in it’s teething stages. What’s with the outdated template design and grainy logos? Simplicity is good but eye-candy is the order of the day and in order to survive the web-age, you gotta indulge in it as quick as possible. Has a video rating system (on a scale of 10) that shows badges about the size of the Digg badges beside each video. Sports some pre-categorised sections like Funny, Music, Stupid, Amateur, Crazy etc. Photo uploads permitted too. Claims to allow unlimited uploads.

24. Vimeo *** cool video hosting service that has been around since end 2004 and reflects the Web 2.0 genre of web-design. They share helpful pointers with you in case you’re lacking ideas regarding creation of unique video content. In action are a bunch of highly configurable privacy options with which you can create fine-grained access control lists to allow only select group of people to view your videos. In short, you choose who exactly sees which of your videos. Has personalised homepage where you can neatly arrange all of your favourite videos. Allows tagging of videos.

25. Vume *** VuMe (most likely pronounced as View-Me) pays you for uploading quality content – video, audio as well as photos. Small banner ads are displayed beside each of these and the revenue generated when visitors watch your content and partly passed down to you. Every hit on your video, image, or audio clip counts.

26. Zeec *** is another German video hosting service that you won’t find so difficult to navigate around. This one too allows you to directly record / update videos off your webcam. The interface follows the Web 2.0 ideal and has a vague resemblance to the Last.FM music cum social networking site.

27. ZippyVideos *** This one offers your own sub-domain under ZippyVideos to host your profile (e.g. profile.zippyvideos.com). Unlimited uploads are permitted pertaining to the fact that no single upload is greater than 20MB. Privacy options, video organisation and social networking are an integral part of the package.

28. Zoopy *** Zoopy proudly presents itself as South Africa’s first video and photo sharing social network. It’s a pretty basic service with an easy-going note that can be spotted all over the site. There’s a standing challenge that attempts to coax the hidden director in you to come out into the limelight.
