Inspirational Leadership: Morals Are Required

Leaders Without A True Compass Don’t Inspire Greatness

When I was nineteen, I decided to take on a project I hoped would become an awesome best-selling book called “Morality In America’s Youth.” I was a rising-star Army journalist whose big aspiration was to become a non-Army journalist, and writing a meaningful book seemed like a good start. So I enlisted help from people my age (late teens and early twenties) from around the country, and got as far as cranking out a couple of now-embarrassing newsletters about the qualitative research I was going to conduct.

I got sidetracked by such things as getting out of the Army,...

When Is a Welfare Check Not a Welfare Check?
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Connie_H_Deutsch]Connie H Deutsch

There are welfare checks and then there are welfare checks. Up until the police came to my door one evening I thought there was only one kind of welfare check.

Let me start at the beginning.

For over a week, I hadn’t been feeling well; I had vertigo and couldn’t stand up without keeling over and throwing up. It took a Herculean effort just to stay in bed without the room spinning all around me. Needless to say, I didn’t answer the phone or talk to clients during that week. I simply couldn’t.

One night, toward the end of the first week, I heard my doorbell ringing accompanied by loud banging at my door...

Not Just Another Welfare Queen
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Kathy_Henry]Kathy Henry

I did not plan to become a parent at sixteen and it has not been easy, emotionally or financially, but I do not have any regrets. Being a mother is the greatest role in my life. People have no idea how difficult and all-consuming being a parent is, particularly, a single, poor one. The right wing and the media have been in cahoots for decades in their efforts to stigmatize African American single mothers as lazy, unstable and responsible for passing on a culture of poverty from one generation to the next and those stereotypes are not true...

Where did the word Ghetto come from?

A street or city section where only Jews lived. The word ghetto was first used

in Venice in 1516, as part of the phrase “Geto Nuovo,” meaning “New

Foundry.” 

This referred to the closed Jewish section of the city, which had

originally been the site of a foundry. During World War II the Jews of Eastern

Europe were forced to leave their homes and move to ghettos where they

were held essentially as prisoners.

So when did it become an americanized term and how?   We have sayings like

thats ghetto, your ghetto, ghetto music, you live in the ghetto.

Dangers of Fast Food Part 1: Not Nutritious
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Clinton_Kanada]Clinton Kanada

Fast food is enjoyed by millions of people every single day. The relative cheapness and quickness of these meals are great for those too busy or tired to prepare a meal for themselves. For some people, fast food has become a staple of their diets and many of these people do not realize the effects this has on their body. The film Super Size Me showed how the high fat, high sodium meals from these restaurants can set the groundwork for inflammatory diseases, as Morgan Spurlock went a month of only eating fast food items...

PharmaFoods – The Truth Behind Food Made In Chemistry Labs
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Daniel_S_Israel]Daniel S Israel

Science and technology has made our lives today healthier and more enjoyable in the 21st century. We have fast cars, medicine for our ailments, and the internet for information. A hundred years ago, nothing we have today has passed through anyone’s imagination.

Nor has the horrors we have today from science being abused. Today, over half the food you buy in the grocery store is made in a chemistry laboratory. Instead of eating organic foods made by Mother Nature, the US Government finances for chemical corporations to make the food you eat so you get sicker easier.

Most people in America have no comprehension of what genetically modified foods (GMO) are or how the...

The FDA – Friend or Foe?

The FDA – Friend or Foe?
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Phil_Bate_PhD]Phil Bate PhD

The Federal Drug Administration was originally founded to “protect” we, the people of the United States, from unscrupulous drug companies and “snake oil” salesmen. However, it has grown into a protector of those same unscrupulous drug companies (known as Big Pharma). Not only does the FDA “NOT” protect the public any more, but it actually contributes to the harming of it. Let’s take a better look at this Government agency that is supposed to protect you and me.

1. In June 2000, A very secret (no-notes) meeting was held between the FDA, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the major producers of infant vaccines. (GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur)...

School Lunches – Current Problems and How to Do It Right
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Rob_Bent]Rob Bent

The concept of a school feeding program has existed for over 100 years in America. It began in Philadelphia with a single school in 1894. By the late 1930s, 15 states had instituted legislation authorizing school lunch programs. Most of them provided the meals at cost, while a few provided low or no cost food to needy children. National support for a permanent school feeding program came in 1946 when President Truman signed into law the National School Lunch Act. The act created the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), which still regulates and oversees the familiar school lunch program in effect today...

Type 2 Diabetes – Diabetes And School Lunches
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Beverleigh_H_Piepers]Beverleigh H Piepers

With the increased number of young adults becoming obese, not participating in exercise of any kind, and developing Type 2 diabetes, the focus has to be placed on making a change earlier in life. That’s why so much emphasis is being placed on school lunches. This movement is resulting in a need for a reform in health issues.

Eating right not only affects the likelihood of developing Type 2 diabetes, but a number of other medical conditions later in life. The more weight a student carries, the more likely they will continue their weight issue into adulthood...
