I am here not to be a King. But a servant for all. I run for a crown in heaven. So everything in this world does not matter to me. I will make a difference in your life. I live the Christian Faith. And I follow Jesus ways. Nothing in this world matters. Except following my Lord. Everything in this World I will change. Towards a Perfect Economy. No more poverty, wars and destruction. A world of Peace and Prosperity. Technological advancement and Innovations. Towards an Eternal life. When my Lord comes again. I have always believed in God’s promises, whatever you give you will get many folds in return. It does not matter in this world or the world to come. My God will never forsake his promises.

In the United States, an estimated 5.4 million people have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This figure is growing rapidly with the ageing population.
One of them was Steve Newport. His wife, Mary Newport, was a doctor. Dr. Mary learned that her husband had severe Alzheimer’s disease.
When the doctor examined her husband at the hospital, he asked Steve to paint a clock. Instead, he drew a few circles and then drew a few figures without any logic. It was not like a clock at all!.
The doctor pulled her aside and said: “Your husband is already on the verge of severe Alzheimer’s disease!”
It turned out that it was a test of whether a person had Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Mary was very upset at that time, but as a doctor, she would not just give up. She began to study the disease. She found out Alzheimers disease was associated to glucose deficiency to the brain.
Her research says: “The dementia of the elderly is like having diabetes in the head ! Before one has the symptoms of Diabetes or Alzheimer’s disease, the body has already had problems for 10 to 20 years.”
According to Dr. Mary’s study, Alzheimer’s disease is very similar to Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. The cause is also insulin imbalance.
Because insulin has a problem, it prevents the brain cells from absorbing glucose. Glucose is the nutrition of brain cells. Without glucose, brain cells die.
As it turns out, these high-quality proteins are the cells that feed our body.
But nutrition for our brain cell is glucose. As long as we have mastered the source of these two kinds of food, we are the masters of our own health!
The next question is, where to find glucose? It cannot be the ready-made glucose that we buy from the store. It is not from fruits such as grapes. She started looking for alternatives.
The alternative nutrients for brain cells are ketones. Ketones are necessary in brain cells. Ketones cannot be found in vitamins.
*Coconut oil* contains triglicerides. After the triglycerides in *coconut oil* is consumed, it is metabolised into ketones in the liver. This is the alternative nutrient for brain cells!
After this scientific verification, Dr. Mary added *coconut oil* to her husband’s food. After only two weeks, when he went to the hospital again to do painting and clock tests, the progress was amazing.
Dr. Mary said: “At that time, I thought, has God heard my prayers? Wouldn’t it be coconut oil that worked ? But there is no other way.Anyway, it’s better to continue taking the*coconut oil*.”
Dr. Mary was now part of the traditional medical practice base. She clearly knew the capabilities of traditional medicine.
Three weeks later, the third time she took him to do a smart clock test, the performance was better than the last time. This progress was not only intellectual, but also emotional and physical.
Dr. Mary said: “He could not do his running but now he can run. He could not read for a year and a half, but he can read again now after taking *coconut oil* for three months.”
Her husband’s actions had already begun to change. He did not speak in the mornings. Now she noticed a lot of changes: “Now after he gets up, he is spirited, talking and laughing. He drinks water himself and take utensils for himself on his own.”
On the surface, these are very simple daily tasks, but only those who have come to the clinic or have demented relatives at home can experience the joy: It is not easy to see such progress!
After frying the greens & onions in coconut oil, making cakes with coconut, after taking 3 to 4 tablespoons of coconut oil per meal, 2-3 months later, the eyes too can now focus normally.
Her studies proved that *coconut oil* can really improve the problem of dementia in the elderly.
Apply *coconut oil* to bread. When coconut cream is used, the taste is unexpectedly good.
Young people can also use it for maintenance of health and prevention, and can improve if they have symptoms of dementia.
Dementia is caused because nutrients cannot be transported to brain cells, and nutrients must be passed from the body to the brain by insulin.
Especially for diabetic patients its not easy to get insulin secretion. “Nutrition cannot get to the brain. When brain cells are starved to death, they are deprived of intelligence.”
*Coconut oil* contains medium-chain triglyceride, which can supply nutrients to the brain without using insulin.
*So, it can improve Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease*.

A very true view of our government written by a 89 year old lady.
Good morning to all
True facts and extremely well-written letter.
Open letter to all PAP cadres: Please focus on serving Singapore
The Online Citizen 2019-02-28 Letters
by Diana Sharma
This is an open letter to all People’s Action Party (PAP) cadres: Please, please, please rethink why you enter politics and look at the direction that the current PAP is going.
I sincerely believe that most Singaporeans who enter politics, regardless if they join the PAP or the opposition parties, do so with a pure heart to serve Singapore and her people.
In fact, that was the reason why PAP was very popular in the 1960’s. The pioneer batch of PAP politicians served Singapore with all their hearts and souls. They commanded the trust and respect of most Singaporeans.
Today, all Singaporeans, especially the older generation, are grateful to PAP for leading and transforming Singapore from a third-world country in the 1960’s to a modern city-state in the 1990’s.
Undeniably, PAP was not perfect and Lee Kuan Yew could be an absolute autocrat who inflicted extreme cruelty to any dissenting voices and political opponents. However, no matter how one looked at it, we have to agree that PAP had indeed done an excellent job in bringing Singapore to where it is today. We only need to look at our neighbouring countries: Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, etc, and compare the progress made over the same timeframe from 1960s to 1990s.
Indeed, one of the reasons for the continued support for PAP during General Elections is the perception that they worked very hard to the interests of Singaporeans at the foremost and they are competent to bring about positive changes to lead the country forward.
Unfortunately, the same can no longer be said over the past 20 over years from 1990s to today. I personally feel that the hearts and souls of PAP are no longer with the common people to bring Singapore to new heights.
PAP MPs are so far detached from the average Singaporean that they live in a separate world by themselves.
The Current State of Affairs
Take, for example, of PAP ministers telling Singaporeans to buy into the Asset Enhancement Scheme for Housing Development Board (HDB) flats and promising that the value of HDB flats will never go down.
After tens of thousands of Singaporeans used up all their life savings and Central Provident Fund (CPF) monies to buy HDB flats, they announced that all HDB flats will be returned to the government at zero costs at the end of the 99-year leases.
In fact, some readers even commented that this is nothing more than an elaborate scheme to buy votes, since PAP had also openly stated that the HDB upgrading were prioritised by the PAP vote share.
Interestingly, most, if not all, PAP MPs do not live in HDB flats and they do not need to return their HDB flats to the government at the end of the 99-year leases.
PAP ministers pay themselves in excesses of $1 million while the entire economy is mis-managed with PMET unemployment hitting new highs.
Instead of standing together with Singaporeans and giving them solid support to tide over the difficult times, PAP made life even more difficult by increasing GST, electricity prices, water prices, town council fees, transportation costs, ERPs, airport taxes, university fees, property taxes, parking charges, carbon taxes, sugar taxes, etc.
As if to add insults to injury, PAP MPs pay $365 for one whole year of parking, while demanding our teachers to pay for school parking. CPF monies pay-outs are automatically deferred to 70 years of age, even though it was supposed to help provide financial support for the retired. And to top it off, they put the blame of economic mismanagement onto the common people and told them to pay more money to nurture skills in order to upgrade their skills so that graduates can become cooks and cab drivers.
Education has become an elitism breeding ground for the PAP families. While PAP ministers openly claimed that “All schools are good schools”, it is a doubt as to whether anyone of them ever sent their children to neighbourhood schools.
Finally, top school students are guaranteed places in Junior Colleges via the Integrated Programmes and Through-Trains Programmes, as well as concession points to enter affiliated Junior Colleges, whereas neighbourhood students are denied such opportunities.
Basically, children from PAP families no longer compete with children from the average Singaporean families on the level-playing fields. Our education system serves more to separate the elitist family children from the common Singaporean children, rather than to provide basic education for all Singapore children.
Accountabilities and transparencies are not even low – they are non-existent. PAP MP spouses and Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) paper generals are parachuted into high positions in governmental agencies whereby they will just move on to other high positions when they perform poorly.
The list of failures and wastage includes Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) being sold to a foreign entity, Keppel corruption scandal, multiple MRT breakdowns, building the non-functioning National Stadium, multiple confidential data breaches in SingHealth, numerous deaths in SAF, near collapse of SPH, paying millions to Uber for a system when Uber intending to sell the business to Grab, overspending millions for the Youth Olympics and building a non-existent High-Speed Railway, and overspending billions to build Airport Terminal 5 (and increasing airport taxes so much so that airlines divert to other airports), Tuas Mega-Port (with China building an even larger port in Malaysia).
The only exception to moving on for poor performance is Ho Ching in Temasek Holdings. Ho Ching continued to draw high pay package (estimated to be more than $100 million annually) even when Temasek Holdings lost billions from multiple investments, including Bayer shares, Hyflux shares, toxic credit-related products during the Lehman Brother crisis, Thaksin’s Shin Cooperation shares and the Suzhou Industrial Project, etc.
In fact, some readers speculated that this is the primary reason why CPF monies was withheld while taxes and utility fees rocketed sky
high. The President is supposed to serve as a check on the National Reserves and, in order to ensure no independent candidate can ever be elected as a President, the entry bar is now set so high that even the remaining handful of qualified independent candidates will rather enjoy their personal wealth than to risk getting into potential fallout with the government.
In the meantime, an Indian is selected to be a Malay President in order to maintain racial harmony, whereas the issue of a Malay or Indian Prime Minister is conveniently brushed aside even though voiced by many Singaporeans. Look at our National Budget! There is no directionality or leadership to lead Singapore forward. Instead, it is almost like a bribery whereby tax monies are dispersed to Singaporeans once every four years, just prior to the General Elections.
Serve Singapore with Moral Integrity
As a true-blue daughter of Singapore, I now call upon all PAP cadres to do self-reflection. Search deep within yourself and ask yourself these questions. Is this how you want to serve Singapore? Is this the proper way to govern and lead the country?
Stand back and take a hard look at the current state of affairs. Is PAP really acting for the good of Singapore? What has PAP done for Singapore over the past 10 years that has benefited Singapore as a whole?
I think the answer is very obvious if you search within your heart. I beseech you to uphold your integrity and exercise moral courage.
Stop being part of the PAP system. Leave the PAP system and start anew. Join another political party. Or form a new political party to serve Singapore if you feel that all the opposition parties are not good enough to serve Singapore. Remember that history will eventually reflect the current state of affairs.
Do you seriously think that the Singapore Archives can be locked away forever? If the PAP is so above board as it tries to portray itself, then it should declare to the public how much exactly are the PAP ministers and Ho Ching are being paid and open the Singapore Archives. What is there to hide?
You do not want to be identified as part of the PAP system when that happens and you do not want your own descendants to scorn at you in contempt.
So leave this system now while you still can. Start afresh and really work to serve Singaporeans. Goh Chock Tong and Heng Swee Keat can take the lead. They can have some self-dignity and self-respect and they should stop working as seat warmers.
If you choose to stay behind because of the huge pay checks, then stop lying to Singaporeans that you are stepping forward to serve the people. You are nothing more than a selfish elitist!
I share this post from Brad Bowyer. Can any million dollar minister do your duty to verify the facts under POFMA? I can’t leh.
November 15th, 2019
In my accountability speech at Hong Lim Park earlier in the year, I mentioned Indian Telco Bharti Airtel and asked questions about why Singtel was upping its stake as the company hit cash flow issues, while rating agencies had reclassified it as ‘junk’. To make matters worse, it recently got hit with a court ruling that it owes the Indian government over SGD$17 billion in licence fees, which financial media speculate could have a knock-on effect of wiping 4 to 5% off Singtel’s value.
Now we see the idiocy that is Temasek’s investment in Salt Bae coming home to roost. This came to our attention in the middle of last year when Temasek somehow valued the restaurant chain at $1.2 billion when it made its investment. Now the debt-ridden parent of the chain (and yes, it was already debt-ridden when Temasek first bought in to it) is struggling to convince anyone it is even worth $1 Billion. So looks like a fair chunk of the $200 million that Temasek put in will vaporize in less than a year.
Along with Bharti Airtel, we also saw the recent canning of the Amaravati city project (part of the S$4 billion already dumped into Andhra Pradesh by GLCs and related parties). So India has not been so good an investment choice after all.
We also saw a $1 billion loss on Bayer in the last 18 months and counting with the Monsanto/ Roundup lawsuits and scandals. Not to mention, there is also a long list of smaller losses, including over $0.5 billion in fines for Keppel subsidiary in Brazil for corruption in recent years.
And this is all from the combined team we are asked to trust our futures with? And the PAP still claims that investors will lose confidence in and run away from Singapore if they are not resoundingly re-elected?
It seems like they are quite good at causing disasters on their own. And shall we talk Ongoing PMD handling? Or CECA? Or Elected President? Or embarrassments in Parliament while attacking WP? Rising cost of living? GST? Unemployment? HDB to Zero? Economy in Contraction?
How much evidence do we need before we say it’s not that we can’t afford not to re-elect them resoundingly? It is more like we can’t afford not to remove them resoundingly – and that may well generate confidence as well given this evidence.
So please take the time to look yourself and get your friends to review the PAP’s track record since 2015. The 1G leaders are long gone and their legacy has long been spent, figuratively and now literally judging by the facts.
It is time for change.
