Головним інструментом нинішніх олігархів є безправний люмпен, який живе на подачках від держави, на грані фізичного виживання. Ось чому значна частина пенсіонерів є найкращим їх електоратом, який і допомагає часто приводити до влади їх ставлеників. Для малого і середнього бізнесу сьогодні закриті економічні ліфти у цілих галузях економіки, бо з кожним роком сфери зацікавленості олігархії збільшуються, перекриваючи кисень усім іншим.

Grief Sighing or Breathing Relief?
Grief Sighing or Breathing Relief? Do you sigh throughout the day? Perhaps you don’t recognize that you’re sighing. It’s a deep breath in as your entire upper body rises, and then you release with an long audible exhale and your body sinks as do your hopes.

When He Retires First
When He Retires First Most husbands are a few years older than their wives, which, of course, brings them to the time of their retirement before their wives are ready to stop their own professional lives. Besides, the family may well have counted on her income for a while longer. This means that she will be going off to work, morning after morning, for several years after her husband has begun to enjoy his stay-at-home... Forward>>
A Legacy for Your Grandchildren. THINGS THAT MATTER

Why and How to Make Friends of All Ages
Why and How to Make Friends of All Ages Marlo Thomas on the benefits of timeless friendships. When I was a little girl, the average age of my friends was about 45. That's because I liked to hang out with, in addition to my schoolmates, the comedian pals of my father, Danny Thomas, and listen to them tell jokes. Then there were all those bustling producers and manic directors I'd meet at the movie studio when my father took me to work with him... Forward>>

Supporting One Another
Supporting One Another I don't know about you, but I need all the support I can get -- especially when I'm taking a risk. Over the years, my girlfriends and I have endlessly encouraged each other.

Happiness and Religion
Happiness and Religion Can a happiness workshop inspire, comfort, and support like temple or a church? I begin with a bit of self-disclosure. I don’t have a religious or spiritual bone in my body. (Yes, maybe even less than Richard Dawkins.) But this doesn’t mean that I’m not open-minded about research on happiness and religion. As I write in my book, The How of Happiness, just because (most) religious beliefs cannot... Forward>>
Dispelling Sleep Myths

Nine Ways To Boost Happiness
Nine Ways To Boost Happiness Ever since my first allowance was doled out, I've had a complicated relationship with money. I’m pretty grounded, but the impulse to spend frivolously often wins out. Mostly I grab last- minute items at the check-out, splurge on over-the-top outfits, or buy extravagant gifts for family and friends. None of these purchases led to financial ruin, but they do come with a high price tag of letdown... Forward>>

Conditions related to cabin air and pressure
Conditions related to cabin air and pressure The dry, recycled cabin air irritates mucous membranes and causes painful sinus-cavity pressure to build. This is a tremendous annoyance, particularly to people with colds, sinus infections and chronic sinus conditions. Of course, it’s best to avoid air travel when you’re sick, but if you can’t do so, or you’re prone to sinus problems, moisten your nasal passages with a saline spray. Also, although pressurized...
