West Invaded Ukraine: English-Speakers, NATO Troops Fight for Kiev Junta in Mariupol!

There is overwhelming evidence being recorded by Ukr. locals, it’s very clear that NATO lead mercenaries are on the ground. It’s not a civil war but a foreign invasion! Thanks for sharing the truth!!

Futurist Trendcast

There were lots of videos and other proof that appeared on the internet that shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that Americans, and possibly Canadians, as well as other English-speakers, are very much a part of Kiev junta army. In my previous article I showed a video in which Polish mercenaries proudly parade their national identity. See: False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons.

Proofs and reports from locals in Mariupol continue pouring in that massive numbers of Western/NATO/US/Canada/UK/German/French/Polish/Lithuanian troops and weapons are being used by Ukraine army to subdue Ukrainian population, which doesn’t want to live under fascist regime. Therefore, we can say confidently, this is a foreign takeover of Ukraine by the West.

Anyone who knows Russian history remembers that in 1918 the so-called Antanta, US/UK and France, also tried to invade Russia to sway…

Predictions: The beginning of the EU End? When Will Greece Exit EU? Who Is Next?

Excellent, i’m very excited for Greece’s sovereignty and return to true democracy.

Futurist Trendcast

Bravo and congratulations to the left-wing SYRIZA party for spectacularly winning the Greek elections!

My brief predictions (I may expand on them later): 

This is the beginning of an end of the EU!

What is fascinating is that in this resistance to the EU and US dictate, the most unlikely forces get united: from far left to the very radical right; from spiritual people to simple farmers and big industrialists. This is because the present day US/dollar-centric ‘world order’ makes no sense to anyone, and just about anyone who has two brain cells to rub against each other wants change.

However, it will take perhaps a few years for Greece to exit the EU due to how entangled the economic and financial situation is and how much pressure Greece receives from Brussels, Germany (which stands to lose most), and France. And don’t forget the NATO pressure; plus, the biggest monster…

Why You Shouldn’t Say ‘You’re Welcome’

In English, it’s a relatively new arrival. Over the past century, “you’re welcome” has evolved to connote that it’s my pleasure to help you or “you are welcome to my help,” which we tend to say more directly in other languages like Spanish and French (“the pleasure is mine,” “it was nothing,” “no problem”). Is there a better alternative?

I stumbled upon an answer after meeting Adam Rifkin, a serial entrepreneur who was named Fortune‘s best networker. He goes out of his way to help a staggering number of people, doing countless five-minute favors — making introductions, giving feedback, and recommending and recognizing others. After Rifkin does you a favor, it’s common for him to reach out and ask for your help in return.

At first, it seems like he’s just following the norm of reciprocity: since he helped you, you owe him. But there’s a twist: he doesn’t ask you to help him. Instead, he asks you to help him help someone else.

Rifkin is more concerned about people paying it forward than paying it back. In his view, every favor that he does is an opportunity to encourage other people to act more generously. That way, a broader range of people can benefit from his contributions.

After watching Rifkin in action, it dawned on me that Cialdini’s line could be adapted. Instead of “I know you’d do the same for me,” how about this response?

“I know you’ll do the same for someone else.”

Just like Cialdini’s reply, it affirms your character as a person who’s happy to be helpful. Unlike his version, it doesn’t deliver the implicit message that you’re indebted to me, and I’m waiting for you to repay it.

It’s just a sentence, but the underlying values have the potential to fundamentally change the way that people interact. In traditional direct reciprocity, people trade favors back and forth in pairs. In contrast, Rifkin’s approach is called generalized reciprocity. As described by political scientist Robert Putnam in Bowling Alone, “I’ll do this for you without expecting anything specific back from you, in the confident expectation that someone else will do something for me down the road.”

If you follow this approach, when you really need help, you have access to a broader range of potential givers. If you stick to direct reciprocity, you can only ask people you’ve helped in the past or might be able to help in the future. In generalized reciprocity, you can extend your request to a wider network: since you’ve given without strings attached, other people are more inclined to do the same. In fact, social scientists James Fowler and Nicholas Christakis have conducted experiments showingthat acts of giving often spread “up to three degrees of separation (from person to person to person).”

So next time someone expresses appreciation for your help, it might be worth stretching beyond politeness to ask them to pay it forward. I know you’ll do that for someone else.

Russian Saying – The cat knows whose meat it has eaten.

good proverb!

Life in Russia

Зна́ет ко́шка, чьё мя́со съе́ла.

Transliteration: Znayet koshka, ch’yo myaso s’yela.

a cat knows it's accuser

Translation: The cat knows whose meat it has eaten.

English equivalent: A guilty conscience needs no accuser.

Meaning: “People who know they have done wrong

reveal their guilt by the things they say

or the way they interpret what other people say.”
