You’ve seen them running alongside the presidential limousine, scanning large crowds like hawks and walking around the grounds of the White House. Of course, we’re talking about the US Secret Service. These men and women have a serious job and they definitely look the part. Dressed in their black suits, their best-known job is to protect the POTUS. But there’s more to it than that. As you’ll see with these following 10 secrets, the Secret Service is about more than looking intimidating while wearing sunglasses.

Ahead we’ll start you off by explaining the original purpose of the Secret Service. Spoiler alert – it didn’t actually involve protecting the President. From investigations to interrogations, we’ll take a look at some of the other jobs the Secret Service performs today. Ever wonder what would happen if most of the US government was wiped out? Well, the Secret Service plays a role in ensuring the continuity of the government and it involves the secret location of Mount Weather. Of course, all those men and women in suits need a place to hang out and we’ve found it on H Street in Washington D.C. We’ll also show you that the Secret Service isn’t all about taking a bullet either. No, they are prepared to perform all sorts of life-saving procedures on the President to ensure their chances of staying alive between the time of an incident and arrival at the nearest hospital. There’s also the fact that not all agents are human. That’s right, dogs do their part in the secret service and their training is just as rigorous as it is for their two-legged masters. Then there’s the proximity of the Secret Service to the President. As you’ll see, they are always nearby and sometimes it can be a little too close for comfort. Even in the safe confines of the White House, agents are on guard and that includes those stationed in the kitchen. They’re not just there to keep the chefs safe. We’ll show you how agents are forensic experts who can track down a threatening letter just by the type of ink it was written with. Finally, there’s the weaponry and equipment. We all know the Secret Service packs some firepower. However, the types of devices and weapons can be truly mind-boggling as it demonstrates they are ready for nearly any scenario.

Alcohol abuse help is very important if you are unable to control your alcoholic cravings. Otherwise, alcohol addiction shall result from it. Alcoholism is very dangerous. Sometimes, it can cause death either as a victim or as a perpetrator.

Alcohol addicts have distorted thinking faculty. They are driven by intense and overwhelming emotions. If the emotions are negative such as anger or hatred, it may compel the addict to commit crimes such as physical abuse or worse, murder. Victims may be a family member, relatives, friends, co-workers, neighbors or anybody else.

There are four types of alcohol treatment. These are in-patient, out-patient, Christian-motivate, and adolescent-exclusive. Each of these treatments is unique.

In In-patient alcohol abuse help, you will have to attend support groups, where you shall meet different individuals sharing alcoholic problems similar to yours. These support groups are held in a safe environment conducive to your recovery. It is different from what you have been accustomed to when you were still binge drinking on beers, vodka, gin, whiskey, and combination of other alcoholic beverages.

You can also make friends with other members of the support group and earn support from them as well. At times, the friendship made inside the support groups extend even outside when you all have recovered and graduated from the treatment.

In Out-patient treatment, you will experience symptoms and emotions similar to the In-patient treatment. Detoxification is necessary and you have to stay sober and rid your body of alcohol, leading to physical withdrawal stage. In this stage of the alcohol abuse help, most alcoholics experience pain as they fight the urge to have a shot of alcohol. However, this period is relatively short. Thence, it is very important that you are able to survive this stage.

You do not have to worry about it because you will be given all the support. You will also attend your own support groups just like in an In-patient treatment. The only difference is that, instead of staying within the centers facilities, you will have to go home and stay with your family.

Support groups are helpful in keeping you sober until your cravings are gone and you will start living an alcohol-free life. Among the support groups, the most popular is the Alcoholics Anonymous. It is widely available in the United States. Alcoholics Anonymous has a 12-step program to help addicts earn their life back.

Christian-motivated alcohol abuse help is governed by a Christian organization. Its program is integrated with faith in God. Those who are admitted are asked if they believe in the existence of God. People running such treatment centers believe that God can help you become sober and live a peaceful life.

Most often, patients who are admitted to Christian treatment centers become a believer of God. In fact, it is taught that only through him can you find yourself healed and on the right path.

Sometimes, teens and adolescents may become alcohol addicts. Of course, while they may also share symptoms and emotions identical to the adults, it would be better if they are admitted to an alcohol abuse help center designed exclusively for teens and adolescents.

Do you need End drinking now? We at Fresh Start Private have a program that combine the use of the implant procedure with a life therapy program. The use of Naltrexone implants, pioneered by doctors such as Dr. George ONeil, can significantly reduce the cravings for alcohol. Find out more details about it at

Do you know what you are asking for when you say you want to achieve financial freedom?

I once attended a seminar organized by one of the most prolific UK-based directors for a prestigious research firm I was working for back in 2007. His topic was ‘How to make a million dollars and contribute to the world at the same time’. I was thinking to myself, “Well, he is just research scientist, so what does he know about the road towards financial freedom?”. Cynical me.

It was only months later that his words begin to really sink it. It all made sense when I begin to reflect what he said back then. I can succinctly recall the advice he was sharing to this very day as surely as I can remember the level of enthusiasm received by my colleagues (whom I now regard as bosom friends). They simply returned to their busy experimental routine. Thankfully, I kept it all in my mental hard disc drive.

His very first advice was this: It is not how much you earn that matters; it is how much you save. I cannot stress the truthfulness in this old sage advice that many indeed take for grant, or do not realise. There are many real life examples from people whom I know – as well as those whom I do not directly know, how this is all so true. I know a working family housewife who works to earn a salary that is considered humble in today’s standards. Yet, from the little savings that she puts aside, she is eventually able to buy a middle-class home and live comfortably, even support their children. Her perseverance had paid off.

As important as the first advice is, awareness about what constitutes your personal liabilities is the next natural step. More often than not, credit cards and line-of-credit offerings by financial institutions are the biggest source of robbing your wealth. I call these daylight robbers. That is because their high interest rates insidiously rob you of your hard-earned money slowly but surely, over the months and years, in all your approved consent, and the legitimate realization that come in the form of bank statements. One has to learn to manage his own finances in the first steps before he can ever hope to manage more.

Once the basic financial groundwork is set, one can then hope to expand further. Having two jobs would help. I was at first surprised how that can be done without losing your social life, and time to be spent with your family or loved ones. It was when I learnt about the concept of passive income that I fully understood. Passive income is income you receive without physically ever need to be at the job. This can come in the form of real estate, investments, commodities trading in shares and stocks, or more popularly, internet marketing or businesses.

So what about achieving the status of financial freedom? Although a source in Wikipedia I once read puts $ 9 million dollars to be the amount that one needs to be truly privileged or accorded with that status, it is a largely relative term. Simply put, monetary freedom is not measured in dollars. It is a situation in your life where you never have to work for money again, or worry about how to make more in your lifetime. This is the universal opinion: Financial freedom is achieved when one makes passive income large enough that it overtakes what one earns in his primary job, so much so that he no longer need the latter.

The road towards financial freedom is an arduous journey that require one’s personal evaluation of his financial status in the very first instance. After which, it is only by harnessing the power of passive income can one ever hope to achieve it in his lifetime.

Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams gave a passionate speech against the current system of impunity for police brutality. Racists want him fired for it, so they started a petition. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“An online petition popped up over the weekend on calling for Williams to be fired from his longtime role in the hit ABC sitcom Grey’s Anatomy…

The petition was started by a user named Erin Smith, who condemned Williams’s “negative attitude.” Smith also called Williams’s words “hate speech against law enforcement and white people,” and wrapped up with the controversial hashtag #AllLivesMatter…

Williams gave his speech on June 26 after accepting the 2016 BET Humanitarian Award. In it, he gave a searing indictment of racism in America.”*

Online article authors are always complaining that they can’t produce additional articles because they’ve run out of things to write about. Well, if this happens to you, then why don’t you just read more? Why not read trade journals in ancillary industry sectors to the one that you write about? Why not read a book on the subject?

When was the last time you read a book from your own industry?

How can you be an expert and write articles on the Internet if you haven’t read any books about the subject? And just because you read one book a year on the subject doesn’t mean you know what you’re talking about.

Why not read one book a week on your subject matter? I do.

In fact, I find it rather upsetting and demoralizing that too many other online article writers and especially online article marketers read so little and write so much about things they don’t know what they’re talking about.

If you do this, then you are doing a disservice to the Internet reader, you are cluttering up the Internet with garbage articles, and you are giving either bad advice or useless information that is already available on the World Wide Web, and has always been there, even if you had never existed in the first place. In other words you are needed.

There are more good reasons to read in your industry, because it will make you think about topics that you haven’t considered yet and the more you read different sides of the debates, the better you will see the issues and therefore, the more knowledgeable you will attain because you will be thinking about this.

This will make you a better expert in your industry. If you’re going to turn off your mind and not read, and not stay up with the industry then you really have no business writing articles online and wasting everyone’s time including your own. Please consider all this.
