Part II. Awaking in the Dream from the Dream: Why We’re Learning Lucid Dreaming
When most people awake in the morning, they don’t remember their dreams because they jump right back into the program of all the things they need to do that day. They immediately go from delta, which is deep sleep, straight up the brain wave scale to beta, which is thinking and performing tasks. In the process, they don’t have time to slowly transition and gradually climb the ladder of consciousness from delta, to theta, to alpha, to beta. I wanted to give our students enough time to linger in the subconscious states of alpha and theta so that they could begin to awaken the circuity and neuropathways responsible for dream recollection. We’re cultivating these skills for two main ... Read more »
She’s Slovenian ex-model, wife and companion to 2016 U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump. Melania Trump has the potential to become the First Lady and influencing the outcome of the elections.
Do not oppose women's rights in questions of policy; Melania said that she would not have gone into politics. “I chose not to go into politics and policy”, she said GQ in April 2016. Considering the political activity of the work of her husband, she took the role of an as humble observer.
At her first campaign interview for ABC’s, published in November 2015, she said she has not accompanied her husband on the campaign trail because she’s staying home to take care of their 9-year-old son Barron.
Suppose she deserve becoming the First Lady of this nation. We’re thinking about her, remembering the former First Ladies of the country.
In February 2016 Siena College researchers have published work on the topic “The first ladies study”. The first place in 1982 confidentl ... Read more »
Hillary Clinton must be the most corrupt woman in politics today even before that ghoul Nancy Pelosi.
It's about time she be brought before a court under oath to answer for what she has been getting away with all these years.
She was the absolute WORST Secretary of State in recent memory.
Her polls are tanking.
Any Democrat still supporting her is only doing it out of stubbornness and refusal to admit that he/she has been hoodwinked by her.
General Patraeus received probation and a fine for pillow talk, and this woman has done 100x worse. She should consider herself lucky if all she gets is a fine.
It speaks volumes about the Democrat party that this is the best they can do and their frontrunner.
In case you're unfamiliar with the killing of Cecil the Lion, here is a link to a NYTimes news article. http://www.nytimes.com/2015....ml?_r=0
Long story short, Cecil, a 13-year-old black maned lion was killed by an american big-game hunter within the country of Zimbabwe. After the Minnesota dentist was outed for his action, hes been forced in to hiding. People all over the internet and around the world are creating petitions and trying to prolong threatened species.
No matter how hunters try to defend their actions, its clear that the majority of people do not agree with the hunting of quickly receding species.
In order to condemn the killing of Cecil the lion and stop trophy hunters from killing near-extinct species, I'd like to recommend that you sign this petition. The more people ... Read more »
I have an issue! Maybe we can all help me. Lately there have been several news reports related to our privacy and freedom of choice. Who has the right to spy on us in the name of national security? And does the media and those complying with onerous thugocrat intrusions have a real responsibility to go along with it? I say NO!
The news media and the company's who are being asked to go along with the efforts by an out of control political system, "whom electorate enabling hath turned inside out" through partisanship. Now has to live confronted by the real danger of an excess of control from the very system they supported and are also counted among its members. It isn't only the government, we have the same thing with social media, internet and phone company providers. Control seems to be everywhere online off line and even at work and shopping.
The information age touted as a bastion of free exchanges between like minded individuals who could usher in a ... Read more »
(This is an article by my husband Mike which I'd like to post here if that's OK.)
Four different attitudes to crime and punishment
The four principle approaches to crime and punishment are deterrence, retribution, intentionalism and environmentalism. All four have their advantages and disadvantages when considered from a logical, practical and/or moral viewpoint.
Let me illustrate the differences of emphasis between the various approaches. An advocate of deterrence will claim that the purpose of punishment is to deter crime. A retributionist claims that the purpose of punishment is to punish crime.
In the first case it is the consequences of the action that are seen as important. A criminal act is punished with the intention of discouraging other criminals from following the example.
In the second case it is the act itself that is punished and whether or not the punishment deters criminals is of no importance in the think ... Read more »
(This is a post I wrote on another board in response to an appalling programme about Irish travellers called 'My Big Fat
All Romanies are travellers but NOT all travellers are Romanies.
A bit like all Native Americans are Americans but not all Americans are Native Americans, or all English are British but not
all British are English.
The traveller community consists of several sub-groups, only ONE (or, if I'm generous, two) has the right to be called 'gypsies.'
The largest component (at least in the British Isles) is Irish tinkers. They speak English and Shelta Thari (a kind of debased
Gaelic), do NOT live by the leis prala and do NOT observe our rituals about cleanliness.
One of the worst insults in Romani is caling someone mokardi or marime. The words mean specifically 'unclean' or 'dirty.'
Another thing that is very important to a true Roma is chachimos - . truth. ... Read more »
