12 Biggest Conspiracies Of 2011
Evidence and innuendo of Obama being a CIA agent have swirled since his election. But in 2011, investigative reporter, Wayne Madsen, dug deeper into Obama's mother Ann Dunham's work in Indonesia and discovered her Anthropology work was CIA-backed through its tax-free funding arms, mainly the Ford, Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations. Dunham's work contributed to the body of knowledge that aided the U.S. in toppling the Indonesian government in a bloody coup in the 70's.
Top 10 Business Blunders of 2011
Businesses make mistakes all the time. Unfortunately, when they blunder, the reprecussions can be wide, from customer data being compromised to employees losing their jobs and shareholders getting wiped out. DVD-rental company Netflix lost 800,000 of its 20 million members after it announced a new pricing plan and streaming service, Qwikster, in October. CEO Reed Hastings soon after canceled plans to split the service and apologized to customers, but the damage was done. Netflix's stock price, which was near $300 a share in mid-July and has a 52-week high of $304.79, recently traded at $70. Here's a look at 10 foul-ups of 2011.

The 20 Absolute Worst Parents of 2011
From a sword-fight punishment to a grade-school boob job, these are the craziest, weirdest and sometimes tragic news stories about horrible, moral-free parenting from 2011. Sadly, in most of these cases the children did nothing to deserve the injuries, humiliation or even death that their so-called caregivers bestowed upon them. Even worse, many of them were infants or toddlers, completely unable to fend for themselves. As heinous as the actions of these adults are, it's a safe bet that these criminals and mis-doers won't be winning any Parent of the Year awards.
7 Ways to Get Yourself Hacked
In recent months, I've met at least three people who have been the victim of hackers who've taken over their Gmail accounts and sent out e-mails to everyone in the address book. The e-mails, which appear legitimate, claim that the person has been robbed while traveling and begs that money be wired so that the person can get home. What makes the scam even more effective is that it tends to happen to people who are actually traveling abroad—making it more likely that friends and families will be duped. Although it's widely believed that a strong password is one of the best defenses against online fraud, hackers increasingly employ highly effective ways for compromising accounts that do not require guessing passwords. This means that it is more important than ever to practice "defensive computing"—and to have a plan in place for what to do if your account is compromised.
What Your Body Is Trying to Tell You: 9 Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore
The body is a magnificent machine. When things go awry, it generally doesn’t just shut down without warning, like an incandescent light bulb popping its filament. Instead it sends us little signals (think of them as gentle biological taps on the shoulder) letting us know that something is amiss. “Physical signs and symptoms are ways your body tries to alert you to deeper imbalances,” says Elson M. Haas, MD, a San Rafael, Calif., physician with a natural-medicine approach and author of Staying Healthy with Nutrition (Celestial Arts, 2006). “Taking the time to decipher the body’s codes is always better than simply popping a pill and hoping the symptoms just go away. Ideally, we want to get to the causes of problems, not just suppress the end result of ill health.” But interpreting the body’s quirky Morse code requires a deep level of body awareness that, like any skill, takes time and practice to perfect. To that end, we recruited a handful of the country’s leading integrative health practitioners to help identify nine of the most common conditions underlying frequent, and sometimes mysterious, symptoms.
