Understanding Practice Management Systems from Eastern Thought Perspective

Understanding the Western methodology of sales and marketing, that 80% of future business comes from existing customers, it behooves Eastern Medicine Practices to adopt a technological solution to manage their practice.



Right now you might be doing the following to various degrees:



1. Referring Patients to Tai Chi practitioners for further “self-health.”

The critics have a point...



It could be that the sharpest political wedge that divides Oregonians, and keeps us from finding much more potent agreement than we do, is compensation of public employees. There's plenty to say on this subject. Part of what I want to say in this week's… Continue

I'm not making this up



A B-level news story this week, really just a sidebar to the First-Monday-in-October ritual that launches the Supreme Court's annual session, brought me to my mental knees. It was more than enough to deserve a column this week.
There's a way of thinking in this country…

Confidence in WHAT?



They call it the Consumer Confidence Index, and it is a very, very big deal. In a world where media-manipulated perception becomes reality (and modern financial markets qualify) our collective opinion of whether the economy is good or bad makes the economy good or bad...until our opinion changes.



This is nuts. It becomes more clearly nuts when you ponder a… Continue

Ecocide Law Would Criminalize Free Enterprise | The Epoch Times

First, it was Pope Francis. Now, it is French President Emmanuel Macron. Both leaders have added their considerable moral heft in support of a radical environmentalist proposal to add the new crime of “ecocide” to the Rome Statute that outlaws genocide, ethnic cleansing, and other crimes against humanity.

Double Victory! Monsanto pesticide and GMOs just got whacked! | Center for Food Safety

We just made history! Center for Food Safety (CFS) just had one of the most important legal victories ever against pesticides and GMO crops.  After years of litigation, a Federal Court just banned Monsanto's toxic pesticide dicamba. This also effectively halts the use of GMO crops designed to tolerate that pesticide. This massive win protects farmers, our health, and hundreds of endangered species. The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that EPA's approval of the pesticide be immediately revoked and its use stopped. This provides relief to thousands of farmers across the country whose crops have been decimated by the drift of this pesticide onto their fields. In ruling the pesticide approval unlawful, the Court cited "enormous and unprecedented damage" caused by dicamba in the last few years, damage that has "torn apart the social fabric of many farming communities." This victory took years of effort by CFS's legal and science teams and we could not have asked for a better result. We are so proud of them, and so incredibly grateful to our members and donors that enable these major victories to happen.

Billionaire Buys 15% of the Planet to Protect It | Return to Now

Since the creation of the world’s first national park, Yellowstone, in 1872, 15 percent of the earth’s lands and 7 percent of its oceans have been protected in a natural state. But some scientists have concluded that at least half the planet needs to be protected to save a large majority of plant and animal species from extinction. A multi-billionaire has pledged $1 billion to get us closer to that goal. The money will be used to “create and expand protected areas” with the goal of protecting 30 percent of the planet’s surface by 2030. The 83-year-old Swiss-born steel magnate Hansjörg Wyss — who’s now an avid outdoorsman living in Wyoming — has already donated $450 million to protect 40 million acres of land and water across the globe since the establishment of the Wyss Foundation in 1998. Wyss has also supported anti-poaching efforts, river restoration projects, African national park improvements, rails-to-trails initiatives and land conversation in his beloved adopted home, the American West.

"This scares me, I have to say," environmentalist and 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben tweeted in response to news of the record-breaking reading in Verkhoyansk, where the average high temperature in June is 68°F.
