Trump’s ‘alternative facts’: Why the row about inauguration ‘lies’?

(Media Release) He has only been president for a few days – but already Donald Trump and his team are locked in a new dispute with US news organisations.

The row over the coverage of his inauguration has provided the first indication of what Mr Trump’s relationship with the media will be like.

And it has amazed even some of the most seasoned political commentators.

What is the argument about?

Photos showed more people had attended the swearing-in ceremony of Barack Obama in 2009 than Mr Trump’s inauguration on Friday. The number of rides on the Washington subway system also suggested that attendance lagged behind both Mr Obama’s event and the Women’s March against Mr Trump on Saturday. ( )

But Mr Trump’s administration has angrily challenged the reports on numbers, with the president calling journalists “among the most dishonest human beings on Earth”.

In his first briefing as White House press secretary, Sean Spicer cited figures about attendance that were quickly denounced in many US news outlets as “falsehoods” and even “lies”. Top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway later said Mr Spicer had been presenting “alternative facts”.

How are things different with the new presidency?

Journalists are not supposed to be politicians’ best friends – this would harm their ability to challenge people in power and hold them to account. But the acrimony – and strength of language used – between the new president’s office and some sections of the mainstream media is being seen as unprecedented.

It means the way the US president chooses to get his message out is changing.

Just days before his inauguration, Mr Trump explained his extensive use of Twitter by saying: “I get very dishonest press and it’s my only way that I can counteract.”

Although he now has an official presidential Twitter account as well as his personal one, the early days of his presidency do not suggest a departure from this system.

Seeing as the White House press secretary’s role is to act as spokesperson for the president and the White House, it is perhaps unsurprising that Mr Spicer has demonstrated a similarly combative approach to the media.

Journalists also expect a certain amount of “spin” when given figures in political briefings.

But Mr Spicer’s presentation of what he called “the facts”, debunked almost instantaneously, has led some of America’s most high profile news outlets to rethink how they report on the White House’s statements in the future.

Why the bad feeling between Trump and mainstream media?

The relationship between the mainstream media and Mr Trump has long been tense. During his presidential campaign, he banned outlets such as the Washington Post from rallies, attacked broadcasters for not showing on camera how big his crowds were, and encouraged his supporters to boo reporters at his events.

Portraying himself as an outsider, he referred to the likes of the New York Times and CNN with the same disdain he showed the Washington establishment and the “liberal elite” – out of touch and unwilling to listen to the voice of ordinary people.

It follows then that Mr Trump has favoured once-fringe news sites, many of which are popular with the alt-right, over traditional sources. He has even appointed the former head of Breitbart News Network Stephen K Bannon as his chief strategist.

With the exception of Fox News, mainstream US media have largely returned the sentiment. Of the 100 top circulation print newspapers, only two endorsed him. Reporters have repeatedly taken aim at inconsistencies in Mr Trump’s statements and conducted aggressive investigations into subjects such as his non-payment of taxes.

The relationship hit a new low shortly before his inauguration when several organisations revealed that US intelligence agencies were investigating a report that suggested Russia held lewd information they could use to blackmail the future US president (something both Mr Trump and Russia deny).

In a heated press conference, Mr Trump attacked media outlets and refused to take a question from broadcaster CNN, which he accused of being “terrible” and of trafficking in “fake news”.

Will anything change now Mr Trump is president?

It is still very early days in Mr Trump’s administration and no-one knows for sure what will happen. But the first interactions have certainly been remarkable.

Some Trump supporters will no doubt welcome the continued antagonism towards the media that was central to the Republican’s campaign for president.

However, there are also warnings about the impact of diminished trust.

“If you’re willing to lie about stuff this minuscule, why should anyone believe what you say about the really big things that matter?” asked The Atlantic magazine.

And as editors try to establish the best way of reporting on President Trump’s administration, some commentators are calling for a different approach.

While Fox News published Mr Spicer’s briefing unchallenged, CNN said it did not even broadcast the spokesman’s statement live.

And The Huffington Post is among those that have urged news organisations to employ more scepticism as a general rule. “They should focus attention on the fact that the administration lied, not the content of the lie itself,” it said on Sunday.

Protective Packaging Market Poised to Rake US$ 40 by 2026 End


Free Press Release Submitted by






Press Release Distribution

Future Market Insights’ research on the global protective packaging
market predicts promising growth for flexible protective packaging

In 2015, the global sales of protective packaging products exceeded 14
million tons in volume, with flexible products accounting for
two-third of these revenues. The demand for flexible protective
packaging products is expected to dominate the global market
throughout the forecast period. The growth of global e-commerce
industry is playing an instrumental role in consumption of flexible
protective packaging products. Almost every other product sold online
requires a protective wrapping that can cover various types of
surfaces and object shapes. Integration of void fill and wrapping
processes for packaging operations in the e-commerce business will
continue to prompt higher sales of flexible protective packaging
products. On the other hand, the combined market share of rigid and
foam products in the global protective packaging market is likely to
be lesser than 35% through 2026. ( )

According to Future Market Insights report, titled “Protective
Packaging Market: Global Industry Analysis & Opportunity Assessment,
2016-2026,” growth of the global market for protective packaging
will be defined by factors such as increasing need for inflatable
packaging, rising preference for paper-based packaging products and
active participation of third-party logistic companies. Key findings
compiled in the report have estimated that the global protective
packaging market, which is currently worth nearly US$ 25 billion
market value, will expand at a steady CAGR of 5.3% and reach US$
41,822.8 million value by the end of 2026.

Scrapped protective packaging products being dumped as waste remains a
key challenge for manufacturers globally. Growing consumption of
protective packaging products is adversely affecting the environment
as these products become futile after their packaging use. Incessant
dumping of such discarded protective packaging products is compelling
regional regulatory bodies to induce strict recycling protocols for
market players.

high-performance foams, and biodegradable polymer materials.

Key Regional Insights

North America and Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) to remain
dominant regions in the global protective packaging market.

By 2026, protective packaging sales from Western Europe and APEJ
region will collectively account for almost half of global revenues.

In 2015, North America’s protective packaging market accounted for
sales of more than 3,600 thousand tons of volume.

Japan’s protective packaging market size is expected to reach US$
2,861 million value by the end of forecast period.

Over the forecast period, growth of the protective packaging market in
Latin America and Eastern Europe will incur a minor impedance.

In revenue terms, the protective packaging market in Middle East &
Africa (MEA) is projected to expand at 5.6% CAGR.

Paper & Plastic: Ideal Materials for Void Fill Packaging Functions

Blocking & bracing, cushioning, insulation, wrapping and void fill are
identified as the chief packaging functions in the global market.
Manufacturers of protective packaging products will continue
concentrating their production in accordance to prominence of such
functions. In 2015, wrapping and void fill functions collectively
accounted for sales of over 7,500 thousand tons of protective
packaging products. About 27% of global market value during the
forecast period will be accounted by sales of protective packaging
products for void fill processes. As a result, the use of paper and
plastics such as bubble wrap as packaging materials for void fill
function is expected to surge through 2026. By the end of forecast
period, over US$ 35 billion revenues in the global protective
packaging market will be garnered from the combined global sales of
plastic and paper materials.

Insomnia causes sugar-laden indulgence and calorie intake, subsequently – The London Sleep Centre Dubai


Free Press Release Submitted by








Press Release Distribution

Sleep deprivation has already been linked with obesity and while we are still not done blaming lack of physical activity resulting in lack of sleep; Sleep Specialists at The London Sleep Centre Dubai believe that, sleep deprivation can lead to gorging on sugar-laden junk and forbidden calorie-rich food sins.

If you are one of those who reach out for ‘pick-me-up’ sugary delights like latte, crisps, biscuits and donuts over healthy food options to keep your day going; then trust us, it is your sleepless nights that’s doing you all the harm. Sleep deprivation may cause overeating by boosting chemicals for appetite as well as those that increase the pleasure of eating sweet or salty high-fat foods. It may help to note that Sleep ( ) Deprivation initiates the process of getting obese by amplifying and extending blood levels of a chemical signal that enhances the joy of eating.

A study led by King’s College London*, found that sleep-deprived people consumed an average of 385 kilo calories per day extra, which is equivalent to the calories of about four and a half slices of bread. The analysis included studies that compared a partial sleep restriction intervention with an unrestricted sleep control and measured the individuals’ energy intake over the next 24 hours. They found that partial sleep deprivation did not have a significant effect on how much energy people expended in the subsequent 24 hours. Therefore, participants had a net energy gain of 385 calories per day.

Two hormones in our body play an important role in controlling appetite and satiety. Ghrelin stimulates appetite, causing us to eat; Leptin suppresses appetite—so that we stop eating—and stimulates energy expenditure. In a properly functioning brain, the two hormones are released on and off to regulate normal feelings of hunger. Sleep Deprivation can however alter Ghrelin and Leptin levels.

“The effects of sleep loss on appetite seem to be most powerful in the late afternoon and early evening, times when snacking has been linked to weight gain. It is certain that when you are sleep deprived, your cravings for certain foods get stronger and your ability to resist them is impaired. It seems harmless when done for a day or two but over a period of time, you pack on the pounds. Not just that, this kind of continuous indulgence makes it even more difficult to shed off those last few pounds you have been working upon crazy.” reiterated Dr. Irshaad Ebrahim, Medical Director at The London Sleep Centre Dubai.

If you’re chronically sleep-deprived and consume more high-calorie foods, it’s likely those calories will be deposited around your middle, forming fat deposits that are especially dangerous for raising your risk of obesity-related illnesses like diabetes, heart diseases and hypertension. The trouble doesn’t necessarily end if you watch what you eat. Cheat sleep and you may have more trouble losing weight, even if you have a healthy diet.

To fight Sleep Deprivation related binging, try the following:

  • Rest well: Get the sleep you need, every single day.
  • Work out early in the morning: Exercising can aid sleep but not when done right before you sleep.
  • Eat right: Ditch the carbs and go for proteins when you feel like binging.
  • No Alcohol: You are mistaken if you think alcohol relaxes you. It sure does hamper your sleep process and resting phase.

Three Simple Steps to Weight Loss

(Media Release) What if I could tell you three things you could do yourself that would help you lose those extra pounds safely, once and for all? Would you do it? Assuming that you said yes, or at least maybe!….

1. One of the easiest steps is to flush false fat by banishing wheat. One of the most common food allergens and a major cause of false fat in many women is wheat, which contains a protein called gluten. Gluten is difficult to break down, absorb and assimilate… all of which can trigger fatigue, depression, bloating and intestinal gas. The good news is its now easier than ever to steer clear of bloat-inducing wheat.

Try substituting breads made with rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, or soy and oat; crackers made with rice or potatoes; pasta made with rice, quinoa, or buckwheat; and cookies made with rice, oat or millet flour – try it for a week. You will find plenty of delicious options in your health food store or healthy aisle of your supermarket. You may find with this one simple step, you can digest your food properly, rather than letting it sit in your gut and wreak havoc with your digestive process and waistline! ( )

The beauty of this is that you didnt diet. You didnt run a marathon or punish yourself with hours of boring exercise. You never went hungry. You simply eliminated one food that can trigger inflammation and pack on false fat. With this one easy step, you’re well on your way to shedding unwanted pounds.

2. Easy Way to knock out your appetite. Most diets will tell you to avoid FATS, but did you know that some essential fats help you feel full and can even reduce your appetite? FIBER is also known for this. One of my favorite foods is flaxseed. It packs a one-two punch providing both of these good things. Its full of omega-3 fatty acids and an excellent source of fiber. It is one of natures most perfect foods. An added bonus is that the essential oils in flax may also help do wonders for your skin.

Flaxseed is a small seed that resembles a sesame seed, and can be used in a variety of ways, but it must be milled or ground for the nutrients to be released. Try 4-6 tablespoons daily, alone or sprinkled on food. (Milled flax tastes great in hot or cold cereal, on salads, pasta, or in shakes).

Let me explain the roles fat and fiber play in weight loss. Fat provides more calories than protein and carbohydrates, is used more slowly for energy, and helps to maintain satiety for longer periods of time. I recommend you consume adequate amounts of good fat (omega-3 and 6 essential fatty acids) while dieting, and studies confirm that a moderate fat diet (25%-35% of calories from fat) is effective in losing weight. In addition to their appetite-suppressing abilities, they may also help promote normal brain function, and may improve mood and emotional state, a big plus while losing weight.

FIBER is an integral part of weight loss. It increases bulk and helps reduce appetite, producing feelings of satiety. By slowing the release of carbohydrates into the bloodstream, fiber also helps keep energy levels consistent and high. Sufficient fiber helps support good colon function and helps to eliminate wastes that are released during weight loss. It also helps to bind and flush out excess fluids and estrogen, which I firmly believe contribute to fatty deposits in women.

As you can see, even the smallest things can lead to big changes in your health for better or worse. You are discovering how the right small changes can work weight loss wonders for you.

3. Shift into high gear. You’ve flushed out the false fats, now its time to rev up your metabolism, and start burning fat and calories more efficiently. You may be surprised to hear that along with its antioxidant properties, green tea can help you burn calories as well. Green tea contains special chemicals called catechins. These catechins may protect a brain chemical related to metabolism. The higher your levels of this brain chemical, the greater your metabolism and the faster you burn calories.

One cup of brewed green tea contains about 100 mg of catechins. To reap the full benefit of green tea, you should consume at least three eight-ounce cups daily (to provide roughly 240-320 mg of catechins). If you prefer not to drink the tea, either of these options provides the same level of protection:

1. 300-400 mg daily of green tea extract. Be sure the product is standardized to 80 percent catechins and at least 50 percent epigallocatechin (EGCG).

      This extract is not always caffeine-free; check the label.

2. 100 mg of green tea catechins, taken three times daily. This product is caffeine-free.

Fluoride The Silent Killer

(Media Release) In 1990 the Chief Toxicologist of the Office of Drinking Water, whose name is Dr. William Marcus, came out and claimed that the results from the US Public Health Service clearly showed that fluoride caused cancer. But since 1990 the US Public Health Service, who has endorsed fluoridation since 1950, has tried to cover up this link. In 1992, because of his statements, Dr. Marcus was fired from the US EPA. Thereupon he filed suit, was reinstated in 1994, with a court finding that the only reason he was fired was because of pressures brought upon the EPA to shut him up.

“The action continues against us; the more we show the harmful effects, the more the promoters promote fluoridation. In 1995, the California legislature, at a time when there’s more evidence to show fluoridation’s harmful than ever before, passed a mandatory fluoridation bill for all of CA.

“Needless ( ) to say, the worthless politicians in both the Senate and the House (remember, this was passed overwhelmingly in both houses) along with their equally worthless governor, Wilson, found it easy — with the pressure from organizations like AMA, ADA, American Hospital Association, Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association, and their state and local affiliates, easily went along with the pressures and passed this fluoridation legislation.

“… Fluoride has an adverse effect on cells which elaborate a protein called collagen or their type. For example, the discoloration in teeth we see as a result of fluoride at 1 ppm in the drinking water is due to its interference with the proper extrusion of collagen-like proteins in the enamel part of the teeth, which results in over-calcification of some parts of the tooth and under-calcification of other parts.

“We get the same thing in bone, which leads to over-calcified brittle bone in some parts, in other parts totally uncalcified bone. And ligaments and tendons (again made of collagen synthesized by fibroblasts) which should not be calcified at all, become calcified, leading to problems with ligaments and tendons — and, in addition to that, even [fluoride-affected] protein collagen that is not calcified, since it does not appear to be normal to the body, elicits an immune response causing auto-immune reactions, which in turn lead to rheumatoid arthritis — this, in addition to the osteoarthritis caused when ligaments and tendons become calcified.

“On an entirely separate issue, fluoride used to be used at the turn of the century to depress thyroid activity; and those who now live in fluoridated areas will suffer from Chronic Fatigue, which by the way is listed in the PDR as one side effect of those people drinking the amount of fluoride found in a quart of fluoridated water.”
