Amish Puppy Mill horrors

Being an opponent of animal abuse I posted a link regarding that in the Amish community that breeds and sells animals under terrible conditions. With all the stress and being overwhelmed by division and other concerns throughout the world we often lose ground with what really matters to us from the heart. For those concerned about animal welfare the link posted here is excellent and timely to refresh your sights toward what really matters. Much happens under the radar while being distracted by so much happening everyday. A way to ground and manage so that you stay connected to your priorities is to continue to network and no lose sight of your true spirit calling.

Court for woman who tossed puppies at dumpter

God Bless all the innocent.

The woman who threw week old puppies in a plastic bag on the cement ground by a dumpster in April was in court and her attorney pleaded for her that puppies aren't people - wasn't exactly astute even if he believes that and obviously his client considers them garbage not worthy of even taking them to a shelter. It's horrible enough that people are that inhumane and brutal and more so that they have helpers and so many just look the other way. I always think of those crimes never caught and the fact that there's usually someone who knows about them and does nothing.

Parasitic Personalities

Such a Tangled Web

Jealousy and Competition

Parasitic personalities and copycats

It’s a sad moment when someone is so desperate they try to mimic ones humor. Yet, there it is. This is one of a long line of crossed boundaries, envy and other negative behaviors.

Stalking is a behavior not a mental disorder. Where mental disorder does play a role in stalking, its contribution varies greatly depending on the nature of the symptoms experienced, the context in which they are experienced, and the role of other personal and environmental factors. Stalkers present with a wide variety of mental disorders, with psychosis often playing a role for those stalkers.

Dr. Paul E. Mullen, professor of psychiatry at Monash University in Australia, who runs a clinic that treats both stalkers and their victims, said that 70 percent of the victims suffered from a form of post-traumatic stress disorder, marked by chronic anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances. Nearly one in four victims has considered suicide, he said.

In addition to former boyfriends and husbands, stalkers include casual acquaintances, disgruntled employees and business associates, vengeful neighbors and total strangers, as well as former girlfriends and wives.

What prompts someone to stalk need not be as traumatic as a lost love or job. A retired couple reported being stalked by a business acquaintance after a minor disagreement. And a woman in her 70's was stalked by a woman of similar age for reasons she could never discern.

Rather than a disorder itself, stalking is a behavior that falls under the umbrella of symptoms for various disorders. According to a 2012 study published in the journal Aggression and Violent Behavior, “Motivations for stalking include a delusional belief in romantic destiny, a desire to reclaim a prior relationship, a sadistic urge to torment the victim, or a psychotic over-identification with the victim and the desire to replace him or her.” ” And stalkers can fall under a variety of diagnoses, including psychotic disorders; personality disorders, such as narcissistic personality disorder; and delusional disorders.

In a 2014 survey published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 80 percent of stalking survivors reported that they knew their stalker in some way. There’s also some evidence that stalkers are often men in their 30s, and their targets are frequently women in their late teens and early 20s—although not always. Other studies have found that anger and insecurity, often stemming from childhood, are also common among stalkers, as is impulsiveness.

Stalking is a form of abuse. Stranger and acquaintance stalkers’ behavior can be just as, if not more, persistent and damaging as that of former partners, even if it does not involve physical violence in as many cases. Delusional stalkers often don’t realize that what they’re doing is wrong. While their actions can be severely damaging and traumatic, they’re less likely to be physically violent than other kinds of stalkers. For one thing, they’re typically easier to spot than more insidious kinds of stalkers, as psychosis involves a break from reality and, often, unconventional behavior.

Sound Does Travel Faster than Light

Each time I mention this I'm corrected with the (also) somewhat fact that light travels faster than sound. However, discoveries abound.

Scientists have experimentally demonstrated that sound pulses can travel at velocities faster than the speed of light, c. William Robertson’s team from Middle Tennessee State University also showed that the group velocity of sound waves can become infinite, and even negative.

Another link with information that light traveling faster than sound is a myth.

Sweetest Tongue has Sharpest Tooth, and other Beguiling Circumstances

The quote, “sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth” comes from the Little Red Riding Hood, as words of wisdom from Granny who cautions to stay on the path and not be beguiled. Some things never change noted by the fact that this fairytale was written in 1697 and the idea is still apropos in today’s world. The Moon is growing full, heading toward a Blue Moon in Scorpio and Mercury is in Taurus along with the Sun while the Taurus planet ruler, Venus makes a few wild turns in the solar system. All this adds up to interesting, entertaining, and charming conversations along the way. Some will spin yarns, some will be naturally beguiling and you will feel the impulse to settle into a sense of inner peace that you seek. Harmony is a key energy that is sought and it can be manifest if you hold to a modest interest about love and ideas of fulfillment. The First Quarter Moon...
