Iran For Dummies : Iran, Before The Bullets, Missiles And Body Parts Start Flying: Iran, Before The Bullets, Missiles And Body Parts Start Flying

By: Jeffrey J. Prager; Jeffrey J. Prager, Illustrator

An insiders view of life in Iran, including Jews, Muslims and Christians who all live together in relative harmony.

Iran’s men are having trouble dealing with the brave new world that’s imposing itself on their bedrooms: an unnoticed tide of sexual change that could prove far more important in shaping the country’s cultural and political values than the 2009 democratic elections. “It is still widely accepted,” Negar Farshidi writes, “that a groom can make his marriage conditional on the bride remaining a virgin, and cancel it if it turns out she isn’t. Traditionally, a blood-stained sheet was produced after the wedding night as evidence of an intact hymen, but nowadays many men and their families ask for a ‘virginity certificate’ in advance.” Similar practices are common throughout the entire world. The majority of newlyweds still want their brides to be virgins in most countries. But an official Iranian study, Farshidi records, has determined that more than half of all young people in Iran have had premarital sex – which means those certificates probably aren’t worth a whole lot. Iran’s powerful clerical establishment embraced the technological products of modernity, like computers and the internet, while railing against its cultural ma...

Cannabis : The Peer Review • 1964-2016: The Peer Review • 1964-2016

By: Jeffrey J. Prager; Jeffrey J. Prager

Health benefits, cancer fighting qualities and many other medicinal advantages can be attributed to the Cannabis Plant. Likewise, diseases and disorders are also related to smoking, vaping and ingesting components of the Cannabis Plant. Cannabis users should be aware and well informed regarding both the positive effects and the negative consequences of regular Cannabis use and this eBook accomplishes that goal by employing over 650 current peer reviewed reports and studies—and their findings— with active hyper links to each report....

Increasing prevalence of recreational cannabis use among the young population has stimulated debate on the possible effects of acute and longterm use. Cannabinoids derived from herbal cannabis interact with endogenous cannabinoid systems in the body. Actions on specific brain receptors cause dose-related impairments of psychomotor performance with implications for car and train driving, airplane piloting and academic performance. Other constituents of cannabis smoke carry respiratory and cardiovascular health risks similar to those of tobacco smoke. Cannabis is not, as widely perceived, a harmless drug but poses risks to the individual and to society. Herbal cannabis contains over 400 compounds including over 100 cannabinoids, which are aryl-substituted meroterpenes unique to the plant genus Cannabis. The pharmacology of most of the cannabinoids is largely unknown but the most potent psychoactive agent, (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol Δ9-THC, or THC), has been isolated, synthesised and much studied. Other plant cannabinoids include Δ8-THC, cannabinol and cannabidiol. These and other cannabinoids have additive, synergistic or antagonisti...

Water, Water : Fluoridated Water: The Peer Review: Fluoridated Water: The Peer Review

By: Jeffrey J. Prager; Jeffrey J. Prager, Compiler

Fluoridated water only prevents tooth decay in adolescents. Continued use of fluoridated water results in dental fluorosis or decay. Fluoridated water also lowers IQ and causes a myriad of diseases and disorders. Learn the facts and understand how to mitigate exposure....

There’s no way to measure your total daily fluoride intake. If, for example, you cook a meal of pasta with meatballs, include a fresh salad with a glass of juice, wine or soda and then have a piece of fruit afterwards, how much fluoride did you take in exactly? Then add the fluoride you consume brushing your teeth twice a day—and fluoride is far more dangerous to the developing brains of small children as you’ll soon see—and you have no way of knowing how much fluoride you’ve consumed. Fluoride is bio-accumulative. If we could simply urinate or defecate consumed fluoride out of our bodies every day we could all be eating fluoride candy bars without ill effects. That’s simply not the case. Your body collects and stores fluoride molecules in a variety of organs including the brain. Several peer reviewed reports included in this eBook indicate that children between 2 and 4 years old consume somewhere between 57% and 104% of the daily maximum allowable fluoride intake as recommended by the Institute of Medicines 1997 report titled “Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Vitamin D, and Fluoride,” by simply brush...

Laurel Canyon : The 1960s Counter Culture: The 1960s Counter Culture

By: David McGowan; Jeffrey J. Prager, Co-Author

Connecting the 1960s Counter Culture movement to the US Intelligence Community and proving that the US Intelligence Community started the 1960s Counter Culture movement to control and then destroy it. ...

meanwhile ... our story begins ... Elsewhere in the world in those early months of 1965, a new ‘scene’ is just beginning to take shape in the city of Los Angeles. In a geographically and socially isolated community known as Laurel Canyon – a heavily wooded, rustic, serene, yet vaguely ominous slice of LA nestled in the hills that separate the Los Angeles basin from the San Fernando Valley – musicians, singers and songwriters suddenly begin to gather as though summoned there by some unseen Pied Piper. Within months, the ‘hippie/flower child’ movement will be given birth there, along with the new style of music that will provide the soundtrack for the tumultuous second half of the 1960s. An uncanny number of rock music superstars will emerge from Laurel Canyon beginning in the mid-1960s and carrying through the decade of the 1970s. The first to drop an album will be The Byrds, whose biggest star will prove to be David Crosby. The band’s debut effort, “Mr. Tambourine Man,” will be released on the Summer Solstice of 1965. It will quickly be followed by releases from the John Phillips-led Mamas and the Papas (“If You Can Believe Y...
