Max Keiser: The Keiser's Business Guide to 2010

Tomorrow, 20:00 on BBC Radio 5 live

Join the Mystic Meg of money, Max Keiser, as he and his guests get to grips with the recession and predict the big events of 2010. Max is joined by panelists including comedian Andy Zaltzman and Professor Steve Keen - one of a handful of economists who saw the global recession coming. Together with politicians and financial experts, they take a look at the extraordinary events of the last year and make their predictions about what could happen in the coming twelve months.

Ex stockbroker and journalist Max Keiser is informed, irreverent, off beat and entertaining. His views have made him a hit whenever he's appeared on BBC Radio 5 live. And now the man who got it right about the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the breakdown of Iceland's economy, and the collapse of the sub prime mortgage market, gives his take on 2010.

Max can't promise to get everything right, but he can guarantee a unique take on the global recession and who is to blame for the mess the financial system is in. Let Max guide you through the markets, banks, regulation, the debt, jobs, mortgages, savings, the politics and what it means to you.

Anti-Cancer Salad

Anti-Cancer Asparagus

Anti-Cancer Raw Milk Kefir Cheese/Quark (uncooked casein) with garlic, cilantro, onion, sea salt and cayenne pepper.

I will blog soon about how living (uncooked) and fermented Anti-Cancer Kefir, made from organic raw (unpasturized) milk, can be separated into cheese/quark/casein (prevents the breakdown of muscle, may help prevent cancer, is used in the Budwig Diet to treat cancer and induces myelopoiesis) and whey (builds muscle and strong bones, and may help prevent and treat cancer) and how each milk protein can be used safely in an Anti-Cancer diet:
Whey protein is included in the daily menu of all advanced or metastatic cancer patients. When treating cancers that are stable or have regressed in size, patients then have the option of including other protein foods at their breakfast meals such as cottage cheese (casein), yogurt, or soy foods.

Faux Painting: Zebra Print Floorcloth

Zebra print floorcloth that I just finished painting with black faux felt pinking edge (made with heavy-duty faux leather for durability).

This one is now available at Pia Sjolin Design in Canton, CT.
Or you may custom order one in any size or shape from me directly.

All floorcloths are hand-painted on doubel primed heavy-weight canvas using water-based paints and three coats of water-based polyurethane. They are finished with a coat of wax for added protection.

Perfect in front of the kitchen sink or under high-chairs, for easy clean up of spills.

I have one friend who is ordering one to put under her African Gray's bird cage. I think that is a great idea!

I will post more designs as I complete them. I am working on a Safari series right now. My intention is to create exotic and organic designs that will look even better with age and wear. I am inspired by African and tribal art and also, the glazed concrete floors at Whole Foods Markets.

Larger floorcloths can be made for use under dining room or dinette tables and smaller ones for under pet bowls.
