Case presentations abound with once-in-a-lifetime ailments. Worms in the brain. Neuropathy of the clitoral nerve causing nonstop orgasms. It's what keeps work interesting. I once went to a case presentation by a geriatrician colleague which excited me but at the same time made my heart sink. A man in his eighties had begun to display some rather bizarre and sexually inappropriate behaviour. I remember an old consultant of mine telling me decades ago that when a retired vicar starts molesting women, it's dementia. The long and the short of this case was that the patient had limbic encephalitis, a relatively newly described condition with a rapidly progressive loss of memory and deterioration in behaviour. The media would have you believe we have a huge rise in hate crimes, but upon a closer look, it's not so much. Wilfred Riley, assistant professor of political sciences in the College of Public Service and Leadership Studies at Kentucky State University, may have a name out of a 1950s sitcom, but he's one of the few people I've found who's looked at this closely enough. His research of hate-crime allegations by around four hundred or so people showed that fewer than a third could be called genuine hate crimes, a definition only requiring that it wasn't a crime exposed as a hoax, or not discovered to have been perpetrated by a person different from the originally accused. What purposes do hoaxes serve, besides attracting attention to the perp? They exist to sustain the activist's crusade, to help them prove themselves right. No cause or campaign raises money by saying, Hey, things are getting better! And as long as you create the illusion that healing is impossible, then the attention you receive will never end. You're set. The media will climb all over each other to get you on their shows. Of course, until the hate crime is exposed by some scrappy skeptic, who pulls at one thread from that suspicious sweater, which begins the unraveling. But when she started to read, she quickly handed it back. It's too small, she shrugged.

Wait - suddenly, we had an option that we hadn't before. I could increase the font size dramatically, thereby also providing ample white space around the words to help her eyes focus where they should and rest where they shouldn't. So, with hope, I showed her how to bump up the text size to Extra Extra Large, and voila! It was perfect! Now that e-reader apps are available for free on almost every operating system for smartphones (eg Blackberry, iPhone) and tablets (eg iPad, Android), they really should be made accessible to any child who needs them. Almost any article is now available electronically, and the whole concept appeals to the technologically adept Asperkid. Enlarging the font as he or she wants, your Asperkid can then reclaim some of the joy of reading that dancing letters or tired eyes have stolen. And for younger kids, many discount retail stores stock endless handheld devices or read-aloud pens that are just as attractive. Dunne states: It seems that the less you try to connect with the [RNG] machines, the more successful you are. At first, most people get the effect, however small. Then it almost always reduces significantly. If they try harder and harder, they become frustrated and the effect remains elusive. If they just let it happen, relax, have fun, and gently encourage and tease the machine into cooperating, the effect returns and is often more pronounced. Group consciousness If one individual's mental intention can affect physical objects, what happens if a group of people has the same intention at the same time? That is what the Global Consciousness Project sought to (and continues to) examine, starting in 1997. The project is run by Roger Nelson, PhD, formerly of the Princeton PEAR lab. He set up RNGs around the world that measure patterns of 0's and 1's at any given time. See what happens. I dare you.

Note: I'm definitely not responsible for the content on these sites, because, y'know, I have zero control over what they post. As of now, though, they seem pretty damn helpful! If you find one that doesn't work for you (many sites cover multiple subjects) or has gone rogue, that's cool. Skip it and find the ones that do work for you . These are just a few. The fact that a store only carries certain sizes isn't dumb; Say what you mean! Transcribe speeches and podcasts after the fact (volunteers can do this) so people with limited hearing can participate, and use subtitles in any videos. The doctor rubs his palms until they grow warm, then massages both sides of the patient's neck with warm palms, 6 times on each side. Finally, he rubs directly on both sides of the patient's cervical vertebra until his hands grow warm. The patient should be treated with this method every night for at least one week. Back and Leg Soreness When we get old, we will inevitably have trouble with our muscles and bones, including stiffness and aches at the waist, an inability to sit for long periods, and heaviness at the waist when rising in the morning. The symptoms will be somewhat relieved after exercise, but they will become serious with excessive work. In the most serious cases, the patient cannot even bend down. Niu came to me with a lower back ache. When I inquired her about the causes, she answered, When I was 32, we were building our own house. I fell from a scaffold as tall as a man and hurt my waist. If you do it only to succeed, Grant says, in the long run, it probably won't work. Sonny Moore, from article 5, leveraged this concept of helping better-connected artists and accelerated his own success.

A peculiar culture of remixing and collaborating with other DJs became a strong element of the electronic dance music scene in Los Angeles in the late 2000s, and when Sonny remixed artists like Lady Gaga or Avicii or Nero, he gave their tracks a boost and helped them reach new fans. This in turn superconnected Moore to audiences larger than his own and led to surges in his popularity. And after winning six Grammys, Moore started paying things forward, incubating new and young artists in his recording warehouse and promoting their music to his fans. Jack Canfield, from article 2, similarly superconnected into networks when he released his article, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul. He partnered with a national pet supply retailer to offer a half-price coupon for the article to anyone who bought a 50-pound bag of dog food. The company promoted the deal across the United States. The principle was partner up with somebody who is already a gorilla, that has huge reach and impact, and create a win-win, Canfield explains. Eager for a deal, dog owners bought half a million articles--and in the process, a lot of dog food. These words resonate with many parts of me: the little girl who was always a little worrier and took the weight of the world on her shoulders; An anxious child needs just this kind of anchor: an emotionally healthy parent who is solid and reliable, firm and constant, stable and secure; Your ability to anchor your child emotionally today enables them to feel secure and resilient tomorrow. As your child's emotional anchor, you'll need your anchors to hold you steady too. As you'll know from your own life, finding out who your anchors are becomes clear in times of challenge. The same is true for your child. When life is good and our needs are being met, when our environments feel safe and familiar, and when we feel secure in our close relationships, we feel free to let go and explore, learn and grow. We test our limits, and try out new ways of being and behaving. In the same way, when an anxious child feels safe, they'll allow themselves to float until they feel the tug of their anchor, and come back to replenish the sense of safety they need. When your child feels threatened in any way by their environment or their own fearful thoughts, they're more likely to retreat closer to you as their emotional anchor and less likely to explore their world. He realised this had to change if he was going to build a strong relationship with his daughter, asking himself, How many moments have I missed because I've been so enthralled in what I was doing that I was distracted from what was going on in that moment? <a href=''>I'm</a> sure many of us can relate to this battle between intention and distraction as we spend our lives juggling multiple balls and demands on our time. <br /><br /><a href=''>Equally,</a> I wonder how many moments we're missing with our clients, staff, customers, family and friends. <a href=''>How</a> often the answers are right there in front of us, but in our busyness and race through life the clues in the moment disappear into the ether. <a href=''>Dr</a> Perry shared that engagement matters no matter who you're talking to and this requires work and focus on our part. <a href=''>He</a> says,They deserve everything I have at that moment. Because if I'm giving a portion of myself to anything else, then I'm doing that particular thing or person a disservice'. How connected, present and engaged are you really? How many moments are you missing and what's the detrimental impact of that? Open your eyes He fears your inherent nature. He feels that this innate nature of yours is what will one day no longer need him or will reach the conclusion that he is not what he says he is. The real you just reminds him of his own forgery and deception. It is all the cunning work of a devil. Or, maybe all that psychoanalysis is mumbo jumbo. The guru probably just thinks you have a silly name. one or the other. And what is so wrong with your name anyway? was probably your mother who gave you that name and out of respect to your mother, the woman who gave birth to you, a guru should never ask you to change your name. The guru or swami is just another clown in this circus we call life. You've just built a button for yourself. In your waking, everyday life, whenever you need a little piece of what you've created here, all you need to do is to push that button.
