Trump Make domestic abuse on women and their dogs a felony

President Trump. You state you love women. I believe you. This past week you have signed many Executive Orders. Continue to be bold. Do what no president has done before. Sign an Executive Order this week to save the lives of women.

President Trump make all domestic violence on women and their dogs a no plea bargain, Domestic Violence Felony, not a Misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

I have been in animal welfare for over 10 years. I have seen the sad and vicious pattern. It is always the same. First the man severely abuses his family dog to frighten and control his wife. Then as he gets bolder and madder he escalates the violence and physically abuses his wife as well. The police are called to the house often. Nothing happens. Then again the  police are called. Then perhaps a restraining order, The abuse continues. The police come again. This time perhaps he is charged with perhaps a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. He pays a fine. His record is clean. But the physical and deep seeded emotional abuse escalates. And then he really blow up and does severe injury to his wife and the dog.

Then the dog and the woman leave. They are homeless, both in shelters. The injured dog is in a county animal shelter. The physically and mentally injured and abused woman is in a nonprofit women’s shelter. Most women’s shelters do not allow dogs. So, the abused woman and her abused dog, the only one who loves her are separated and torn apart: just when they need each other the most they are split up.  Some women will not be separated from their dog, so the woman and dog run away. They flee to live homeless on the streets. Alone, unloved and abandoned by society. Why are they punished?  They are the victims, not the criminals.

President Trump, you can change this with your signature on an Executive Order. If you will not advocate for domestic abused women and their dogs then who will? If you do not pass an Executive Order, making domestic violence on women and their dogs a Felony Domestic Violence offense in all cases who will? If not today, then when will women and their animals be safe? President Trump you have the ability, and I trust the bold courage to ensure that women and their dogs live in safety.

Domestic violence can be classified as either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the seriousness of the incident. Felony domestic violence is a very serious offense leading to legal consequences such as heavy fines, possible time in prison, and a protection order. Misdemeanor domestic violence usually results is a slap on the wrist and a minor fine. 

In 2017 in America women and their companion dogs should no longer live in fear of abusive men.

10 most common dieting mistakes

The 10 most common mistakes in eating or dieting in America is eating carbohydrates, starches, cereals, grains, and sugars… and avoid eating sufficient meats, poultry, fish, greens and vegetables. So what should we eat and what should we avoid to not die early from Diabetes, Obesity, Cancer and Heart Disease? We should eat a Paleo Low Carb high Protein diet daily.

“No Sugar, No Starch”: Getting Started

The Paleo Low starch high protein diet, that was eaten for thousands of years before grains were grown and we settled in big areas is focused on providing your body with the nutrition it needs, while eliminating foods that your body does not require, namely, nutritionally empty carbohydrates.

For most effective weight loss, you will need to keep the total number of carbohydrate grams to fewer than 20 grams per day. All foods may be cooked in a microwave oven, baked, boiled, stir-fried, sautéed, roasted, fried (with no flour, breading, or cornmeal), or grilled.


Meat: Beef (including hamburger and steak), pork, ham (unglazed), bacon, lamb, veal, or other meats. For processed meats (sausage, pepperoni, hot dogs), check the label carbohydrate count should be about 1 gram per serving (and be organic if able and nitrate free).Do not eat deli processed meat

Poultry: Chicken, turkey, duck, or other fowl.

Fish and Shellfish: Any fish, including tuna, salmon, catfish, bass, trout, shrimp, scallops, crab, and lobster

(However: eat no farmed seafood, there are too many toxins in them).

Eggs: Whole eggs are permitted without restrictions.

You do not have to avoid the fat that comes with the above foods. You do not have to limit quantities deliberately, but you should stop eating when you feel full.

FOODS THAT MUST BE EATEN EVERY DAY:10 most common dieting mistakes

Salad Greens: 2 cups a day. Includes arugula, bok choy, cabbage (all varieties), chard, chives, endive, greens (all varieties, including beet, collards, mustard, and turnip), kale, lettuce (all varieties), parsley, spinach, radicchio, radishes, scallions, and watercress. (If it is a leaf, you may eat it.)

Vegetables: 1 cup (measured uncooked) a day. Includes artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, eggplant, green beans (string beans), jicama, leeks, mushrooms, okra, onions, pepper pumpkin, shallots, snow peas, sprouts (bean and alfalfa) sugar snap peas, summer squash, tomatoes, rhubarb, wax beans, zucchini.

Bouillon: 2 cups daily—as needed for sodium replenishment. Clear broth (consommé) is strongly recommended unless you are on a sodium-restricted diet for hypertension or heart failure.


Cheese: up to 4 ounces a day. Includes hard, aged cheeses such as Swiss and Cheddar, as well as Brie, Camembert blue, mozzarella, Gruyere, cream cheese, goat cheeses. Avoid processed cheeses, such as Velveeta. Check the label; carbohydrate count should be less than 1 gram per serving.

Cream: up to 4 tablespoonful’s a day. Includes heavy, light, or sour cream (not half and half). Mayonnaise: up to 4 tablespoons a day. Duke’s and Hellmann’s are low-carb. Check the labels of other brands.

Olives (Black or Green): up to 6 a day. Avocado: up to 1/2 of a fruit a day.

Lemon/Lime Juice: up to 4 teaspoonful’s a day.

Soy Sauces: up to 4 tablespoons a day. Kikkoman is a low carb brand. Check the labels of other brands.

Pickles, Dill or Sugar-Free: up to 2 servings a day. Mt. Olive makes sugar-free pickles. Check the labels for carbohydrates and serving size.

Snacks: Pork rinds/skins; pepperoni slices; ham, beef, turkey, and other meat roll-ups; deviled eggs.


10 most common dieting mistakes

Starches are complex carbohydrates. Avoid these kinds of foodsgrains (even “whole” grains), rice, cereals, flour, cornstarch, bread, pasta, muffins, bagels, crackers, and “starchy” vegetables such as slow-cooked beans (pinto, lima, black beans), carrots,
parsnips, corn, peas, potatoes, French fries, potato chips.

To avoid cancer, diabetes, allergies, sinus problems poor skin and inflammation diseases do not eat sugars (simple carbohydrates) and no starches (complex carbohydrates). The only carbohydrates encouraged are the nutritionally dense, fiber-rich vegetables.

Sugars are simple carbohydrates. Avoid these kinds of foodswhite sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, molasses, corn syrup, beer (contains barley malt), milk (contains lactose), flavored yogurt, fruit juice, and fruit.


All fats and oils, even butter, are allowed. Olive oil and peanut oil are especially healthy oils and are encouraged in cooking. Avoid margarine and other hydrogenated oils that contain trans fats.

For salad dressings, the ideal dressing is a homemade oil-and-vinegar dressing, with lemon juice and spices as needed. Blue-cheese, ranch, Caesar, and Italian are also acceptable if the label says 1 to 2 grams of carbohydrate per serving or less. Avoid “lite” dressings, because these commonly have more carbohydrate. Chopped eggs, bacon, and/or grated cheese may also be included in salads.

Fats, in general, are important to include, because they taste good and make you feel full. You are therefore permitted the fat or skin that is served with the meat or poultry that you eat, as long as there is no breading on the skin. Do not attempt to follow a low-fat diet!


If you feel the need to eat or drink something sweet, you should select the most sensible alternative sweetener(s) available. Available alternative sweeteners are Splenda (sucralose), Nutra-sweet (aspartame), Truvia (stevia/erythritol blend), and Sweet ‘N Low (saccharin). Avoid food with sugar alcohols (such as sorbitol and maltitol) for now, because they occasionally cause stomach upset, although they may be permitted in limited quantities in the future. (Would recommend you stay away from all artificial sweeteners if able or use Stevia, Dr. Craig)


Drink as much as you would like of the allowed beverages, do not force fluids beyond your capacity. The best beverage is water. Essence-flavored seltzer (zero carbs) and bottled spring and mineral waters are also good choices.

Caffeinated beverages: Some patients find that their caffeine intake interferes with their weight loss and blood sugar control. With this in mind, you may have up to 3 cups of coffee (black, or with artificial sweetener and/or cream), tea (unsweetened or artificially sweetened), or caffeinated diet soda per day.


At first, avoid alcohol consumption on this diet. At a later point in time, as weight loss and dietary patterns become well established, alcohol in moderate quantities, if low in carbohydrates, may be added back into the diet.


10 most common dieting mistakesEat when you are hungry; stop when you are full. The longest living humans live Okinawa Japan. They practice stopping eating when 80% full. The Paleo low starch high protein diet works best on a “demand feeding” basis—that is, eat whenever you are hungry; try not to eat more than what will satisfy you. Learn to listen to your body. A low-carbohydrate diet has a natural appetite-reduction effect to ease you into the consumption of smaller and smaller quantities comfortably. Therefore, do not eat everything on your plate just because it’s there. On the other hand, don’t go hungry! You are not counting calories. Enjoy losing weight comfortably, without hunger or cravings.
It is recommended that you start your day with a nutritious low-carbohydrate meal. Note that many medications and nutritional supplements need to be taken with food at each meal, or three times per day.


The following items are NOT on the diet: sugar, bread, cereal, flour-containing items, fruits, juices, honey, whole or skimmed water, milk, yogurt, canned soups, dairy substitutes, ketchup, sweet condiments and relishes.
Avoid these common mistakes: Beware of “fat-free” or “lite” diet products, and foods containing “hidden” sugars and starches (such as coleslaw or sugar-free cookies and cakes). Check the labels of liquid medications, cough syrups, cough drops, and or other over-the-counter medications that may contain sugar. Don’t be fooled: Avoid products that are labeled “Great for Low-Carb Diets!”


What does a low-carbohydrate menu look like? You can plan your daily menu by using the following as a guide:


Meat or another protein source (usually eggs)

Fat source —This may already be in your protein; for example, bacon and eggs have fat in them. But if your protein source is “lean,” add some fat in the form of butter, cream (in coffee) or cheese. Low-carbohydrate vegetable (if desired)—This can be in an omelet or a breakfast Quiche.


Meat or another protein source
Fat source – If your protein is “lean,” add some fat, in the form of butter, salad dressing, cheese, cream, or avocado.
1 to 1 1⁄2 cups of salad greens or cooked greens
1⁄2 to 1 cup of vegetables


A low-carbohydrate snack that has protein and/or fat.


Meat or another protein source
Fat source—If your protein is “lean,” add some fat in the butter, salad dressing, cheese, cream, or avocado. 1 to 11⁄2 cups of salad greens or cooked greens
1⁄2 to 1 cup of vegetables.

A sample day may look like this:


Bacon or sausage Eggs


Grilled chicken on top of salad greens and other vegetables, with bacon, chopped eggs, and salad dressing


Pepperoni slices and a cheese stick


Burger patty or steak
Green salad with other acceptable vegetables and salad dressing Green beans with butter.


Start by checking the nutrition facts.

  • Look at the serving size, total carbohydrate, and fiber.
    • Use total carbohydrate content only.
    • You may subtract fiber from total carbohydrate to get the “effective or net carb count.” For example, if there are 7 grams of carbohydrate and 3 grams of fiber, the difference
    yields 4 grams of effective carbohydrates.That means the effective carbohydrate count is 4 grams per serving.
    • No need to worry—at this point—about calories or fat.
    • Effective carbohydrate count of vegetables should be 5 grams or less.
  • Effective carbohydrate count of meat or condiments should be 1 gram or less.
    • Also, check the ingredient list. Avoid foods that have any form of sugar or starch listed in the first 5 ingredients.

Remember this.

Sugar Kills. Sugar by any other name is still sugar!

All of these are forms of sugar: sucrose, dextrose, fructose, maltose, lactose, glucose, honey, agave syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, maple syrup, brown-rice syrup, molasses, evaporated cane juice, cane juice, fruit juice concentrate, corn sweetener.

One Thing 66 Day Workbook

The One Thing 66 Day Workbook

One Thing 66 Day Workbook is the Surprisingly Simple way to get all the power from the One Thing Book, written by authors and real estate entrepreneurs, Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan.

The One Thing book is the top-selling and I think best book for entrepreneurs today. It’s the clear path to entrepreneurial success in today’s noisy world.

What the book was missing however was a quick, but powerful Workbook to put all of this New York Times bestseller’s teachings into action.

As a successful serial entrepreneur I knew that to follow through on my personal intent and achieve my top One Thing for 2017 I would have to create a framework that would laser focus me on my desire, until it was achieved. I was ready for a big change. I knew that this was not just a book to read, then put on my shelf and soon lose its powerful lesson.

So to shed my old chasing shiny objects habit of shifting focus often and replace it with a new habit of staying focused on my primary one thing, I created a plan. Part of that plan was a set of questions to ask and answer myself each day. Why? because science and psychology has clearly demonstrated that we can rewire our brain patterns and change our habits in 66 days. Some people take longer, some can do it in less than 66 days.

I learned that these 5 questions, done for 66 days held me accountable, kept me focused on my success plan, actually changed my brain pattern, and created a new success habit. And with it I achieved my ONE THING… in just a few months. They are five simple questions. I did the first two as soon as I got out of bed each morning. I did the last three before I went to bed each night. Well I did this for 66 days. At the end I had mastered my ONE THING. I not only mastered it, I was living it.

The One Thing book is the top-selling best book for entrepreneurs today. It’s the clear path to entrepreneurial success in today’s noisy world.

This worked for me. This workbook worked for my Ideas Institute Georgia Mastermind. I know it will work for you. Do not lose this opportunity to make 2017 your best year ever. Please do not procrastinate any longer or self-sabotage yourself again.

Can You Sense It See It and Feel it?

Can you sense it, can you see it, can you feel it yet? Something has shifted. Something has changed. Something big has happened.

We have transitioned into new times. We are in Transitional Times. We have just left the industrial/manufacturing era. Yet, we have not arrived at our new future. We are in transition.

Entrepreneurs and freelancers represent the future of the workplace, as traditional office jobs and manufacturing become less and less relevant.The time when we went to college, then worked for the same company for twenty-five years is gone. Workers will need continual training and continual education to keep up. Technology changes monthly. We need a new mindset and new ideas to keep pace with all the new things flowing to us.

What do we need to do to prepare for this future?

How should we react now in these times of transition?

Frankly, we or no one else has an answer…but we need to be looking at it, exploring it, creating answers and then sharing them. We are in the process of creating a place to do just that. Education must change. We educated for the linear, assembly line, or everyone in a neat little cubicle world. That world is no longer relevant. We need rapid and continual education for today’s workforce. In these new transitional times we must teach and inspire the new “Ideas Age” workforce. They require new skills.

We have recognized that and we are creating Ideas Institute Georgia to teach people new ways of looking at work and living life. If you are searching for answers, searching for solutions, then you may want to join Ideas Institute Georgia.

Visit the Ideas Institute Georgia website and subscribe to learn of their upcoming Edutaining Talks. Talks that will be both educational and entertaining.

Science has shown that we learn best when we combine learning and fun together. Using our left brain for logical learning and our right brain for creative fun the two spheres connected make for a powerful learning experience.
