Alabama prosecutor drops charges against woman who lost fetus after being shot

We rise by lifting others. I work in customer service for billing for a hospital. I had a lady call in to make a payment. She was the MOST organized person, knew exactly what amount needed to go to which dates of service and which services. She told me my teammate had helped her figure this all out and just gushed about how kind she was. I not only told the teammate, I emailed the supervisor as well.

But I took a cruise while I was married, and the ex kept freaking about money, watching CNN (maybe FOX) and generally being a pissant; that would be good to repeat without him.

If the dog heard the bell he'd be out there trying to break the door down to greet his new friends. The cats would be off for a hidey hole. If they were all still sleeping on me I knew I was dreaming.

You will need to start brushing her daily to avoid the mats, if she will let you. I've never had a cat I couldn't handle or manhandle. So she might not let you. You may have to go with the vet. The mats are painful, they get so tight they pull the skin.

'This Is What Solidarity Looks Like,' Says Ocasio-Cortez, as Wayfair Workers Vow Walkout to Protest Company for Working With Child Detention Centers "We believe that the current actions of the United States and their contractors at the southern border do not represent an ethical partnership Wayfair should choose to be a part of." byEoin Higgins, staff writer Employees of home goods online superstore Wayfair plan to walk out of work Wednesday afternoon in a rebuke to the company's cooperation with President Donald Trump's anti-migrant policies. "This is what solidarity looks like—a reminder that everyday people have real power, as long as we're brave enough to use it." —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez The action, which will take place at the company's Boston Back Bay offices, is scheduled for 1:30pm ET Wednesday. Wayfair employees found out last week that the company was providing bedroom furniture to government contractor BCFS for its new facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas. Common Dreams reported on the facility's construction on June 20, citing WFAA reporter Jason Whitley, who said on Twitter that the camp would "house more than 1,000 captured children." Once the employees discovered their complicity in the border detention of children, 547 of them wrote a letter to the company's executives on June 21 demanding that the company cease cooperating with the federal government. "We believe that the current actions of the United States and their contractors at the southern border do not represent an ethical partnership Wayfair should choose to be a part of," the employees wrote. Wayfair CEO Niraj Shah and his leadership team, in a letter to employees Monday night, rejected the request. "As a retailer, it is standard practice to fulfill orders for all customers and we believe it is our business to sell to any customer who is acting within the laws of the countries within which we operate," said the letter. "We believe all of our stakeholders, employees, customers, investors, and suppliers included, are best served by our commitment to fulfill all orders. This does not indicate support for the opinions or actions of the groups and individuals who purchase from us." The company confirmed the authenticity of the letter to The Boston Globe but did not comment further. Attempts by Common Dreams to reach Wayfair were unsuccessful. As activist Alexis Goldstein pointed out on Twitter, Wayfair is actually providing materials to a government that is breaking the law. Support for the workers was growing online as the news spread. RAICES, the Texas-based immigration legal advocacy group, praised the retailer's workers for taking a stand. "We applaud Wayfair workers who are walking out to protest Wayfair profiting ...

HippieChick58 comments on Jun 25, 2019:
I would say it would depend on the denomination. I was involved with several church's VBS (vacation bible school) programs when I was a good xian wife. We looked at many programs, some really tried to scare the love of god into the children. Truly some bordered on abusive. We chose other programs. I also substituted for the SS programs, very benign. BUT, I was always with a fairly liberal church, mostly UMC, and they don't play games like that.

Pushing back against hoaxers: Father of boy killed in Sandy Hook massacre wins defamation suit | ...
HippieChick58 comments on Jun 22, 2019:
HARTFORD, Conn. — The father of a victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre has won a defamation lawsuit against the authors of a book that claimed the shooting never happened — the latest victory for victims' relatives who have been taking a more aggressive stance against conspiracy theorists. The book, "Nobody Died at Sandy Hook," has also been pulled from shelves to settle claims against its publisher filed by Lenny Pozner, whose 6-year-old son Noah was killed in the shooting. "My face-to-face interactions with Mr. Pozner have led me to believe that Mr. Pozner is telling the truth about the death of his son," Dave Gahary, the principal officer at publisher Moon Rock Books, said Monday. "I extend my most heartfelt and sincere apology to the Pozner family." A Wisconsin judge issued a summary judgment Monday against authors James Fetzer and Mike Palacek, a ruling that was separate from the settlement between Pozner and the book's publisher. A trial to decide damages has been set for October. Pozner has been pushing back for years against hoaxers who have harassed him, subjected him to death threats and claimed that he was an actor and his son never existed. He has spent years getting Facebook and others to remove conspiracy videos and set up a website to debunk conspiracy theories. Lately, the fight has been joined by others who lost relatives in the Dec. 14, 2012, school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. After quietly enduring harassment and ridiculous assertions for years, some have changed their approach, deciding the only way to stop it is to confront it. Their efforts have turned the tables on the hoaxers, including Alex Jones, host of the conspiracy-driven Infowars website. Robbie Parker, whose 6-year-old daughter Emilie was among 20 first-graders and six educators killed at Sandy Hook, spent years ignoring people who called him a crisis actor. His family moved to the West Coast, but still the harassment didn't stop. He would get letters from people who found his address. He was once stopped in a parking garage by a man who berated him and said the shooting never happened. "You are taught when you are young that you ignore bullies and eventually they will leave you alone," Parker said. "But as time went on, and my other girls were getting older, I realized they weren't stopping and some of this was getting worse and getting more personal." Parker is now part of a lawsuit against Jones, has testified before Congress and pushed for changes on social media platforms, such as YouTube, which announced this month it will prohibit videos that deny the Sandy Hook shooting and other "well-documented events." "It wasn't until the lawsuits and until it became a mainstream news story that people realized they were ...

I think we have discussed this member before. He definitely marches to the beat of his own drummer, and inhabits a plane all of his own. I think he is essentially harmless, but I wouldn't get into a car with him.

(Franziska Barczyk/for The Washington Post) By Joyce Cohen June 17 at 12:00 PM It was supposed to be a joyful family gathering. Last spring, Kim Powers-Brown took an overnight train from her home in eastern Washington state to join her relatives at a restaurant near Seattle. Because of her hearing difficulties — she cannot understand speech amid background noise — the group of four requested a quieter spot. “The waitress said no, that side of the restaurant was closed and she was the only waitress on duty — it would be too much trouble,” Powers-Brown said. The family was led to a corner table, with a speaker playing music overhead. She couldn’t understand a word. Her brother demanded they sit in the quieter closed section. “I begged him not to embarrass me,” said Powers-Brown, who was born partially deaf and wears a hearing aid in one ear. [Why I will start including accessibility information in my restaurant reviews] ut we were still treated rudely,” she said. “It was very uncomfortable. I felt terrible that our get-together meal was such a disaster because of my needs.” Under Title III of the Americans With Disabilities Act, restaurants — as places of public accommodation — must accommodate disabilities. But what if the disability is a hearing impairment, and the request is for a lower volume? On this issue, the law has largely remained silent. Hard-of-hearing diners report a vast range of responses when they seek softer music or quieter seating. Sometimes the music is turned down or off, and sometimes it isn’t. Sometimes it is even turned up. Maybe the volume is declared unchangeable, set by corporate overseers. Or there’s no available seating far from the clattering kitchen, the droning ventilation, the hearty partyers. Powers-Brown, 60, who is earning a library degree, rarely dines out with anyone but her husband. She never even thought to request quiet. “I was brought up to adjust to others,” she said. Instead of struggling to converse over a meal, she reads. The law, though, requires “full and equal enjoyment in places of public accommodation,” said Daniel Fink, a retired Los Angeles doctor and a noise activist. His paper on the disability-rights aspects of ambient noise was presented at a recent meeting of the Acoustical Society of America. “I can guarantee that people with hearing impairments don’t fully enjoy noisy restaurants,” he said. Pisco y Nazca in the District, where dining-room noise levels last fall measured 95 decibels, or about as loud as a power mower. (Deb Lindsey/for The Washington Post) Restaurants these days are louder than ever, to the point where critics (led by The Post’s Tom Sietsema) check volume levels and diners grouse about them....

I do meditation, and it does take a while to get the control over your monkey brain. I know it helps me because when I meditate my resting heart rate falls. When I stopped meditating my heart rate climbed with my anxiety levels. I wear a fit bit so I have the feedback and can track my RHR. It is just one measure of health. I use an app called CALM, it has daily meditations and other meditations aimed at specific topics, I remember that flight anxiety is one, better sleep. I tried sage smudging, I just thought my house smelled like BBQ for over a week.

My folks always planted a large garden, six kids on a brick mason's salary where the work stops in the cold of winter, my folks needed to supplement. My grandparents had gardens, and my mom grew up on a farm. I have moved 20 times in my life post high school, and some places I had a garden.
