Thomas C Corley Studied Rich People For 5 Years And Found That They Avoid One Type Of Person

You may not think it, but who you spend your time with matters a whole lot more than you could possibly know. The fact is that your friendships could have a major impact on your actual net worth. The author Thomas C Corley, has been researching the habits of wealthy people for the past five years and there was one thing that came through, this being the type of people that wealthy people avoid at all costs, pessimists.

In his book, “Change your habits, change your life” Corley explains that self-made millionaires are really particularly about the people they associate with. Corley states that one is only as successful as the people that they frequently spend time with. Rich people are constantly on the lookout for people that are goal orientated, optimistic, have attention to detail and are enthusiastic with a complete positive mental outlook on life.

In is study, 86% of rich people were in the habit of only being associated with other successful like-minded individuals. Additionally, these people make a point of limiting their exposure to negative and toxic people.

Corley truly believes that we emulate those people we are associated with and this is why it is so important to substitute negative acquaintances for those positive individuals as positivity appears to be the hallmark of rich people, and long term success was only possible by having a positive mental outlook.

Corley is not the first person to suggest that negativity is the quickest way to derail your success, and also that relationships can affect your financial success. Napoleon Hill, the journalist drew very similar conclusions after researching more than 500 self-made millionaires.

The bottom line is that there is no room for negativity when you are pursuing success, so start hanging out with optimists and steer clear of the pessimists.

 

Do Antibacterial Soaps Do More Harm Than Good?

You would have thought scrubbing your hands with bacteria busting soap would be the best way to deal with whatever you have thrown at you on a daily basis, however according to the research that has been carried out on the cleansers it appears that they are doing you, those around you and the environment no good at all.

Soap

Scientists have shown that the common antibacterial elements that are found in these soaps, such as triclosan and triclocarban, may actually increase the risk of infection, alter the gut microbiome, and encourage bacteria to become resistant to prescription antibiotics, whilst proof of the actual benefits soap provides appear to be extremely slim.

Researchers seem to be finding more and more disturbing information about the chemicals in particular triclosan. This antimicrobial is widely used in a majority of products as well as soap, such as shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, household cleaners etc. When rats were exposed to triclosan, it was proved that this substance made the bacteria stickier setting the environment for infections.

Further studies showed that triclocarban used frequently in soap when tested on rats showed that both the mother and babies microbiomes were altered. However, doctors were quick to confirm that they do not yet know whether the microbiome changes will last or whether they simply spark an effect on health.

Whilst the researchers work out exactly what antimicrobials do when they are in the body they also want to work out what these do when they are excreted from the body or are flushed down the drain. In studies conducted in 2014 it was found that triclosan interfered with the microbial communities that break down sewage, the chemical showed a spike in a gene called mexB, which is a gene that allows the bacteria to kick out triclosan before it can kill it off. These tests also showed that these genes resisted common antibiotics like ciprofloxacin and bacteria that contain mexB were also resistant to these antibiotics.

 

The US Drop Bombs Quicker Than They Can Possibly Make Them

The aerospace and defense policy analyst Roman Schweizer, has admitted that whilst the US has a steady inventory of missiles and bombs the 2 ½ years of fighting ISIS and continued bombing of Afghanistan have exceeded the weapons projections leading to the Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, asking Congress to include further funding for 45,000 smart bombs in the 2017 budget, however it is looking like it could be a while before the stockpile is rebuilt.

US Drop Bombs

The United States dropped more than 20,000 guided missile bombs on Iraq and Syria in 2015. Recent months have seen the US has transferring further quantities of bombs to allies in the region. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been a lot less active in the fight against ISIS as they have been focusing their military on defeating rebel groups in Yemen since March 2015. This Saudi led coalition has with the American support been bombing Yemen but this is all being done using munitions made by US companies, and have purchased American weapons for over 10 years. through US State Department-brokered deals for more than a decade.

Although Roman Schweizer has confirmed that US bomb makers are capable of producing enough weapons to meet the demands, however he was quick to reiterate that if the US were in a state of war they would need to run three shifts of eight hours, twenty-four hours a day to supply the weapons.

Lockheed-Martin have confirmed that they have been asked to increase their Hellfire missile production facilities. Additionally, Boeing, makers of the Joint Direct Attack Munition, are also ramping up production. CNN reported in December that an unnamed US official reported that it may take up to four years for the country to rebuild their Hellfire missile inventory.

Schweizer had confirmed that the Pentagon are faced with an unresolved question as they are using weapons at a rate that they never determined and they do not know how long this current rate of use will continue.
