Pretzel logic: What PR pros can learn from an Amish woman | The Gregory FCA blog | Amish Research | Scoop.it
PR lesson from Auntie Anne's...

 

A great deal of what I know about PR, I learned from Auntie Anne. The pretzel queen. A former Amish woman turned entrepreneur, who, in the 1990s retained my firm to promote her burgeoning franchise empire of hand-rolled soft pretzel stores.

 

It wasn't an easy assignment, convincing someone who had been taught all of their life to avoid attention that she had to interview with Forbes magazine or do lunches with Inc. reporters. But if anything, Anne was a pragmatist who understood the value of her own story. And this was a great one.

 

Born to an Amish family, she chose not to enter the faith, married early, and struggled financially. While running a food stall at a local farmer's market, her husband mixed up a flour order for her pretzel recipe. The screw up resulted in the best pretzel she had ever tasted. Lines formed around the corner, and soon prospective franchisees were beating down her door to buy in. She called it an act of God. Me? Well, I too know the value of a good story, regardless of whether the intervention is divine....

The Amish Don't Get Autism? And They Don't Get Vaccinations - Possible Link? | WV Outpost

The Amish Don't Get Autism? And They Don't Get Vaccinations - Possible Link? | WV Outpost | Amish Research | Scoop.it
People outside the alternative health community are often confused by the lack of autism in the Amish people. The Amish do not experience autism, or any of the other learning disabilities that plague our technological society.

 

The Amish live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, by contemporary standards. Their diet consists of eating organic, fresh, locally-grown produce, and of course, they do not follow the established vaccination routines. To the dismay of the mainstream media and the medical establishment, this has resulted in a healthier people, that are void of all of our chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are virtually non-existent in Amish villages. Equally non-existent are modern, chemically-engineered medicines, enhanced (chemically-engineered) foods, G.M.O. foods, and of course, vaccines. How is it that those who are without the “miracles” of modern orthodox medicine are healthier?

New study: Amish prove raw milk promotes health in children

New study: Amish prove raw milk promotes health in children | Amish Research | Scoop.it

An international team of researchers recently confirmed that children who drink fresh milk–-unprocessed and unpasteurized-–have a better immune response to allergens and are far less likely to develop asthma.

 

Researchers from Indiana, Switzerland, and Germany ran surveys and tests on Swiss and US children aged 6-12 years and submitted their results to the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology last month.

Samuel Mullet, 15 Other Amish GUILTY Of Hate Crimes In Beard Cutting Attacks

Samuel Mullet, 15 Other Amish GUILTY Of Hate Crimes In Beard Cutting Attacks | Amish Research | Scoop.it

CLEVELAND ... Sixteen Amish men and women were convicted Thursday of hate crimes for a series of hair- and beard- cutting attacks on fellow sect members in a religious dispute that offered a rare and sometimes lurid glimpse into the closed and usually self-regulating community of believers.

A federal jury found 66-year-old Samuel Mullet, the leader of the breakaway group, guilty of orchestrating the cuttings last fall in an attempt to shame mainstream members of his community who he believed were straying from their beliefs. His followers were found guilty of carrying out the attacks, which terrorized the normally peaceful religious settlement that aims to live simply and piously.

Prosecutors and witnesses described how sons pulled their father out of bed and chopped off his beard in the moonlight and how women surrounded their mother-in-law and cut off two feet of her hair, taking it down to the scalp in some places.

The defendants face prison terms of 10 years or more. Prosecutors say they targeted hair because it carries spiritual significance in their faith.

All the defendants are members of Mullet's settlement that he founded in eastern Ohio near the West Virginia panhandle. The Amish eschew many conveniences of modern life, including electrical appliances and automobiles, and embrace their centuries-old roots.

Federal officials said the verdicts would send a message about religious intolerance  ....  DDxx♥!.
