As in the Byron’s book Testosterone Inc.: Tales of CEOs Gone Wild, Scientific American found common ground for narcissistic, insane, exscentric and tyrannic bosses’ and politics’ behaviour – testosterone.
If you’ve been blaming reckless men for the collapse of America’s leading investment houses and the plunging markets, you may be on to something. High levels of testosterone are correlated with riskier financial behavior, new research suggests.
Overconfidence has long been noted by historians and political scientists as a major cause of war. However, the origins of such overconfidence, and sources of variation, remain poorly understood. Mounting empirical studies now show that mentally healthy people tend to exhibit psychological biases that encourage optimism, collectively known as ‘positive illusions’. Positive illusions are thought to have been adaptive in our evolutionary past because they served to cope with adversity, harden resolve, or bluff opponents. Today, however, positive illusions may contribute to costly conflicts and wars. Testosterone has been proposed as a proximate mediator of positive illusions, given its role in promoting dominance and challenge behaviour, particularly in men. To date, no studies have attempted to link overconfidence, decisions about war, gender, and testosterone. Here we report that, in experimental wargames: (i) people are overconfident about their expectations of success; (ii) those who are more overconfident are more likely to attack; (iii) overconfidence and attacks are more pronounced among males than females; and (iv) testosterone is related to expectations of success, but not within gender, so its influence on overconfidence cannot be distinguished from any other gender specific factor. Overall, these results constitute the first empirical support of recent theoretical work linking overconfidence and war.
Narcissists work on a big scale and are drawn to risky decisions. They go for large spending and investment, and love a merger or acquisition. The financial results under their leadership, the study found, are more extreme.
Food crises, Financial crises, global warming, falling $, high oil prices – what is the lowest common denominator?
“Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire Couldn’t conquer the blue sky “
Nice sentence from “Always take the weather with you” of Crowded house. But is it conquered now? Watching CNN last night i just couldn’t avoid food crisis news; haven’t been able to avoid them while buying newspapers (Newsweek , 2008, the yaar of global food crises , Global food crisis looms as climate change and fuel shortages bite , …. ) I can’t avoid global warming news, although some scientist say that the Global Cooling comes back in a big way. Can’t avoid news about financial crises, high oil prices, falling $, coming recession,… than in commercial breaks: buy now, be greener, cars with lower CO2, secure your investments, eat healthy food,… Like one and the same continuing program without noticing that there are commercials.. Is it there causal relationship? Is it bad policy as they say? Or is it everything so very well engineered?
When media over expose some news i become sceptical. Very very sceptical and doubtful. Working in media i know pretty well how media ownership is spread and from where the money comes from. And for a big news spreading around you need very good bandmaster. And a lot of money.
We all know that we live in media constructed reality. So what is the reality behind media construction? Is the Bilderberg group and bank elite answer to that? If we going back to past recessions and believe that past recessions were very well engineered (as it well presented in Zeitgeist movie or End Game- Blueprint for global enslavement) why should be different now. Its about making crises, solved them then and gain control over poor hungry and penniless people. I hardly believe that everything has come together so quickly and coincidentally. We know how big power FED has. And WTO, and IMF and UN. All the same policy.
Maybe many of this could be speculation, but knowing that media aren’t teling us the truth, we have to be skeptical and try to find the truth behind. To understand the cause not just the results. Just too many coincidences that someone would not recognize clear and horror pattern of lowest common denominator – power-play and control.
The story of chemtrails or Goodbye blue sky
Some says that chemtrails could be solution to global warming. Most of them deny program for using them for cooling the earth (but patent has been approved, see bellow). Must see movie Aerosol Crimes for everyone who is interested on this topic. Some other think that they are another weapon to control the weather in order to control nations (isolated drought in North Korea and isolated cloudy weather over Belgrade during air strike). According to some, long-term drought is the result of spraying chemtrails . Temperature drops for 7C and humidity for 30%. In addition to that health problems are reported.
Food shortage is the most evident result of drought, isn’t it. And hungry and penniless people are to weak to fight for their rights and think no further than to their stomach. Kissinger said that there are two tools to control people or whole nations: weapon and food. Genetically modified is another scary story (see video bellow).
The Welsbach Patent
|United States Patent||5,003,186|

Stratospheric Welsbach seeding for reduction of global warming
AbstractA method is described for reducing atmospheric or global warming resulting from the presence of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere, i.e., from the greenhouse effect. Such gases are relatively transparent to sunshine, but absorb strongly the long-wavelength infrared radiation released by the earth. The method incudes the step of seeding the layer of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere with particles of materials characterized by wavelength-dependent emissivity. Such materials include Welsbach materials and the oxides of metals which have high emissivity (and thus low reflectivities) in the visible and 8-12 micron infrared wavelength regions.

“I learned about U.S. Patent #: 5,003,186, titled `Stratospheric Welsbach Seeding for Reduction of Global Warming,” better known by chemtrail researchers as “The Welsbach Patent.”
The patent describes putting metallic particles like aluminum and barium into jet fuel. Then, exhaust from the jet engine seeds the stratosphere. In turn, those small metallic particles serve a dual purpose by: 1) reflecting incoming light back into space and 2.) helping convert the warmth below into infra-red waves, allowing them to escape from the earth’s atmosphere.
“It turned out that it seemed to work and so that’s why we had applied for a patent,” said patent co-inventor David Chang. Chang confirmed that the U.S. military did fund that research while he worked at Hughes Aircraft, an aerospace giant at the time. It would later downsize considerably and evolve into Direct-TV, which required some of the very same kinds of research and development.
In fact, Chang described several other military-funded projects where jet engine exhaust dispersed metallic particles into the atmosphere. “For instance, we were using it to develop targets for laser range finders,” continued Chang.
I then learned about that U.S. Air Force document titled, “Owning the Weather in 2025.” it details weather modification for war-fighting and describes putting carbon dust into jetfuel for dispersal as the quote, ‘most convenient, safe and cost effective method,” just as the Welsbach Patent explained. That method is described on page 15 of the Air Force report, originally written in 1996 as a study paper.
In September of 2002, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell even told a United Nations World Summit in South Africa quote, “we are committed to a billion-dollar program to develop and deploy advanced technologies to mitigate greenhouse-gas emissions.” Powell never fully elaborated.
And few may remember that the U.S. military used covert weather modification in the past. During the Vietnam War a top secret mission called ?Operation Popeye,? seeded clouds over the Ho Chi Minh Trail to create floods and wash out the enemy’s supply routes. Reporter Jack Anderson is credited with breaking that story back in 1971.
