Hypnosis, feedback sought

https://www.asch.net/Public/GeneralInfoonHypnosis/DefinitionofHypnosis.aspx

The link above is to a website that is, afaict, non-woo. Yes, "stage hypnosis" is pretty much entertainment and BS. Yes, some people have made overblown and unsubstantiated claims for hypnosis.

*****Barack Obama Group*****In Beijing Talk, Michelle Obama Extols Free Speech

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/23/world/asia/in-china-michelle-obama-speaks-out-for-free-speech.html?hpw&rref=us&_r=0

BEIJING — On a visit that was supposed to be nonpolitical, Michelle Obama delivered an unmistakable message to the Chinese on Saturday, saying in an address here that freedom of speech, particularly on the Internet and in the news media, provided the foundation for a vibrant society.

On the second day of a weeklong trip to China with her two daughters and her mother, Mrs. Obama, the first lady, spoke to an audience of Americans and Chinese at Peking University, and in the middle of an appeal for more American students to study abroad, she also talked of the value for people of hearing “all sides of every argument.”

“Time and again, we have seen that countries are stronger and more prosperous when the voices and opinions of all their citizens can be heard,” she said.

The United States, she said, respected the “uniqueness” of other cultures and societies. “But when it comes to expressing yourself freely,” she said, “and worshiping as you choose, and having open access to information — we believe those are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet.”

Good News: Kindhearted neighbors blossomed in the winter weather

http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2014/03/good_news_islanders_grateful_f.html

By Marie Smith of Ward Hill

I would like to extend my deep thanks and appreciation to a very special family - my next door neighbors - the Lanham family on Nixon Avenue.

I am elderly and live alone. My house is high on a hill with many stairs, a steep driveway and a long sidewalk in front of my property.
This winter proved to be a hardship with the tremendous amount of snow that fell, which seemed to occur every other day.

Thankfully , my neighbors were always there to help me.

Alan Lanham, who had so much of own shoveling to do at his home and the home of his relatives who needed help, always made time to help me.

Hey, why should kids have all the fun?

Looks like this poppa really knows how to get into the swing of things.

A Tennessee spring breaker's dad, identiified as Phillip D. Tidwell, was allegedly caught on video hitting parked cars with a golf club - at a Panhanndle jail, reports the Northwest Florida Daily News in Fort Walton Beach.

Tidwell said he damaged the cars because of how long it was taking to get his family member out of the slammer, according to deputies.

GOTV 2014: President Obama helped save the economy in 2009

I think we can all remember the fall of 2008 and early 2009. The economy was tanking fast. I think IIRC the economy was losing 700K jobs per month at one point.

Granted, the final stimulus that got passed was inadequate. HOWEVER....that was the fault of the deficit hawks and the Republicans. A $1T stimulus was regarded as simply unthinkable, so we had to settle for less.

Again, give credit where credit is due. The economy was saved. FDR saved capitalism. Obama and we Democrats also saved capitalism.

Democrats are good for the economy. The FUD line is that Republicans can manage the economy better. That's utter bullshit.

GOTV in 2014 !

Search on for cache of 'worst Atari video game' (ET !) believed buried in landfill

http://www.klewtv.com/news/offbeat/Landfill-search-for-Atari-ET-video-game-is-halted-251462411.html

ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Organizers say a planned dig into a New Mexico landfill for a rumored cache of what some consider the worst Atari video game of all time is expected to proceed despite state environmental regulators' concerns.

Fuel Entertainment and LightBox Interactive are seeking to excavate an old Alamogordo landfill that reportedly was a dumping ground for "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" game cartridges.

Jonathan Chinn, an executive producer at Los Angeles-based LightBox, said Thursday that the search hasn't been halted.

Chinn says a local waste-management consultant who filed an excavation permit is addressing questions raised by the New Mexico Environmental Department.

3 kids found starving in home, 1 chained to wall

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/03/21/3-kids-found-starving-in-home/6723177/

SALINAS, Calif. -- A couple under arrest in Monterey County have been accused of severely neglecting their three children, one of whom was chained to a wall in their house.

The 8-year-old girl was skeletal thin and had hardly eaten in months, officials said.

Monterey County Sheriff Scott Miller described the scene as "one of those cases that sticks with you for some time."

"When you've got over 30 years in the business, you've seen way too many of these types of things before," he said. "But this is, in terms of child abuse and neglect, this is toward the top."

OMG, how horrible.
