Preparing for the end

Jul 25, 2016 - 9:43 AM - by minks
minks's Avatar
I have aging parents, 80 and 78 I am extremely close to them.
Can anyone prepare for the end? I mean as the children of the parents?
Frankly I am terrified to loose either of them. I know it is going to happen, I do my best to not let this consume me.
15 years ago I lost my then father in law and I could barely manage.
My parents do talk openly about their dwindling time on this planet but they are not all doom and gloom about it, this helps me but I get these... [Read More]

A coming attempt murder

914.Attempt murder (7/23/2016)

Out of massive murder plots the Feds planned, this "falling death" of roofing incident has years' long history.

My wife signed the roofing contract on 7/17. That day she suggested to cut off a tree in front house. I remembered the broken apple tree. see #909. Resonance to damage (2). The apple tree, was in back yard, a few feet to neighbor's house, so was easy to break under acoustic weapon radiation. The front tree, faces... [Read More]

Those who pay for education should consider the benefits of a bonus system for students.

We have been watching the Canadian and U.S. national level of education stall in the doldrums, as compared to other nations. Not shamefully so but irritatingly so. We need to reverse this slow slide.

We, Western citizens of rich nation, are not serving our students well. We pay our teachers; we should consider paying our students, --- who, --- after a good service rendered by... [Read More]

PCOS and heredity

Jul 23, 2016 - 12:45 PM - by Katya
Hi, everybody! I am a mother of the awesome 3-year-old girl. At present, my husband and I are trying to conceive the second child. When my daughter was one year old, her breast started to grow. The doctors diagnosed her with early sexual development. When I got pregnant and the ultrasound checkup revealed that I will have a daughter, my gynecologist warned me that it's a great possibility that my daughter will inherit PCOS. The gynecologist who treats my daughter also proved this idea. My hubby... [Read More]

season 2 just wrapped up, has anyone watched this show?
I have found it quite fascinating.
10 people left to survive alone 4 - 5 kilometers from each other, alone as individuals until the last man is "standing". They are helicopter dropped into various bays, on Northern Vancouver Island, they are allowed to bring a limited number of survival items and are left to fend and forage for themselves.
It is quite the cool insight to the human being.

This is not so much a movie review but more to open a discussion on body image and body shaming that our kids not never before are dealing with.

Its targeted at kids between 10 and 15 ( and everybody else) to show them that body shape and appearance has nothing to do with sameness but comes from being different from one another.

Unfortunetly its recieved a MA15+ rating which misses its targeted audience but probably a good thing so parents... [Read More]

New Black Panthers

FourPart's Avatar
I've just been watching an item on BBC News about the new Black Panther movement who are encouraging black people to arm themselves openly, and legally supposedly as a protest about their being targeted by the Police. Well, am I missing something here? If I saw someone coming towards me who was heavily armed like that, I doubt I would want to gamble on whether that person was only intending to use use them for defence purposes only. With a heavy gun culture, it's a case of kill or be killed.
