editor’s note

You know, I just have to say, I love getting older. And I don’t know if this is necessarily because I now have ‘wisdom’ from living so many years on this earth. I think it is actually more because I am finally getting ‘my ducks all in a row.’ I have always had this mantra running, that I will keep making the necessary changes until I am in the right job, living in the right house and in the right area, being in the right relationship etc. And when I look more closely at this, when change has been ‘right’ it has been all about timing. You just can’t rush things. As they say; “when the student is ready the teacher will come.” Watch and Wait. Another thing I am noticing…

karma yoga: enlightenment through service

Karma Yoga is a path to enlightenment achieved through selfless service that often involves some form of work. Anything that helps people can be considered service, which includes creative work. Even if your job prevents you from helping people on a regular basis, it can still be considered a form of service if it helps the world function. Karma Yoga traditionally involves guiding people to enlightenment. Spiritual education is considered by many to be the best form of selfless service – but there are countless good things you can do for others and there’s no need to limit your service. Start In Your Community If you do want to wake people up, I recommend either starting somewhere in your community, or on the internet. You don’t have to overwhelm people with your truth,…

citizen jury calls for fast food crackdown

One of the most popular fast food chains, McDonald’s Australia, has taken a grilling in a consumer study conducted by a South Australian public health research institute. The ‘citizens’ jury’ resulted in a majority verdict in favour of increased government regulation on some of the ultra-processed products and Australian corporate operations of the giant transnational company – even if it means paying more for unhealthy food choices. Government measures to address McDonald’s advertising to children and young people, the unhealthy and fattening nature of some food products, as well as practices to reduce tax paid in Australia were supported by the 15 average adult ‘citizen jurists.’ The citizens’ jury in Adelaide heard the results of a corporate health impact assessment (CHIA) of McDonald’s Australia conducted by the Southgate Institute for Health, Society…

fast facts on mcdonald’s

• In 2016 McDonald’s was the most valuable fast food brand in the world with an estimated brand value of US$88.65 billion; the combined value of its main competitors Starbucks, KFC and Subway. • Fast food is easily prepared processed food served in snack bars and restaurants as a quick meal, or to be taken away. Through their considerable market and political power these corporations can shape food systems in ways that alter the local availability, price, nutritional quality, desirability and ultimately consumption of such foods • The subsequent impacts on health and wellbeing have established the importance of developing an integrated research agenda, measuring health impacts, and gaining citizen feedback on health impact findings to strengthen recommendations on policy.…
