#3038518 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

If anybody expects fb to be above board and even handed they need to cut the cord.

 

 

I find it interesting. You get to see how a lot of people think.  I ignore 98% of the stuff I disagree with. I'll troll a few huddle friends occasionally, i guess it translates to fb ;P

Another example of fear mongering to line the pockets of the major news outlets.

 

Maybe our process for containing it was just fine, but was perceived lacking due to the fact that the media's escalation was devoured by the public creating foolish hysteria.

Guys, any hints on losing belly fat?  That thing is like a parasite...  I gained sympathy weight while wifey was pregnant... I'm in a good shape and even play semipro soccer every week (full size field).  I need to lose about 10lbs in belly fat.  I'm currently at 6'1 220lbs and I try to get to 210lbs.  Are there any hardcore belly workouts?

 

 

Cardio and watch your diet. Limit sugar, bad carbs and fat intake. Do 3-4 30-45 min intense cardio workouts a week. Boom six pack.

#3037542 Ferguson, MO latest - grand jury findings

Posted by Cat on Yesterday, 05:04 PM

Lots of conflicting stories on this one.

 

NY Times I think it was, reported that there were at least 6 black people that backed up the policemans account.  Who knows, guess it will all get released soon.

 

 

You mean black people backing the cop, i guess that solves it. Oh wait by that logic we should put more weight in the white peoples testimony that go against the white policeman's account. 

 

 

ugh

Great news Zcustom

 

My knee is still messed up. It doesn't really hurt often, but it's still really swollen. I pushed it over the weekend and regretted it so the last two nights I've sat on my ass, icing my leg and watched TV (White Collar to be specific) anyways I hate how bored I am. My husband is still working out, I'm so jealous.

#3034331 What if we distributed private school vouchers

Posted by Cat on 21 October 2014 - 07:17 AM

I truly believe that the after school mentoring types of programs are what actually may help turn things around.

Many if the low income and poorly performing kids have very little parental structure and help at home. Some a factor of parents not caring. Much a factor of parents not being around due to work (single parent homes). And, much due to parents who themselves lack the education and knowledge to really help the kids with homework or not installing the importance of an education.

We need to create programs that can successfully supplement these weaknesses. First step us money to fund them and the next step is to find a way to get the kids involved with them.

This is a tough situation, but it us fixable. And, for the sake of both the kids and the country's future it us a fix that must happen.

 

 

I volunteer a good bit at my sons school and I've found many parents don't give a poo, not only in public but also in charter (and race has nothing to do with it). Homework not done, kids completely unprepared for spelling and reading test, looking at it like it's the first time they've ever seen the words. 

 

And don't get me started on packed lunches. If you're going to pack your kids two uncrustables, a handi snack, and a gronola bar, just go ahead and let them buy lunch at the school at least it will keep their caloric and sodium intake down. 

 

I didn't get why some people even have kids.

I think I see it more on the student end of things rather than the teacher/classroom thing.

I'm not even saying more money in the home could help, but it would at least be a start.

That won't happen though, because they have to keep a social hierarchy and keep the poor poor and dumb.

 

 

Oh I definitely think effort is a big part, the lack of an adult at home who takes the time to care. 

 

I've just found that while I hear they keep pouring money into the low income schools, when I go in them I don't see the resources that they have at the higher income schools. 




#3033060 What if we distributed private school vouchers

Posted by Cat on 20 October 2014 - 12:40 PM

I think it's a terrible idea. 

 

No way the gov't is going to give a voucher for a decent private school that cost 13k or more a year. It would be more in the range of 3-7k and that will get you a cruddy poorly accredited religious private school. I'm unaware of any low cost, highly accredited non religious private schools. If those exist then I'm  willing to change my tune.

Ah I was hoping for a new series to come out. 

 

Just finishing up Enterprise. Season 3 was awesome, the rest wasn't great. Captain Archer is awesome though.




#3023693 Ghosts

I'm a skeptic since I've never experienced anything that would be deemed paranormal, but I'm no denier.

 

One of my best friends when I was growing up in LA told me of his first "haunted house" when he moved from San Francisco at 7 years old. The story he told me sounded like something straight out of a horror film, but he's never been one to lie about anything and one of the few people I would trust my life with.

 

He grew up in a devote Catholic Mexican family, so they were already pretty superstitious and sensitive to the paranormal. They were also struggling financially, and the house they moved into was surprisingly well-priced for the area (upper middle class neighborhood). Early on, his family would see/hear furniture moving around throughout the day, curtains would flutter with no wind coming in, and they would see odd shadows moving around the house at night.

 

Then things started to ramp up when my friend began to dream of his bedroom walls bleeding and his mother would sense a presence in her bed when his father would be working nights. Of course, this started to freak them out, so they brought in a exorcist. That supposedly made everything worse and the activity became more frequent. They decided to take some time off and visit family back in SF for a week to let things die down.

 

When they got back, the house was in shambles. Their furniture was strewn all over the place and their religious items would either be broken or displayed in a menacing fashion (crucifix hung upside, pictures of Jesus scratched out, etc).

 

Since religious help was obviously not working, his family started to investigate the house's past a bit. The bleeding walls in my friend's dreams were one of the first things they attempted to uncover. So they actually chipped away at the paint on his bedroom's walls. Low and behold, they found dried up blood. They also found satanist markings and paraphernalia in the attic.

 

The family contacted the previous owners of the house, who were rather reluctant to talk. Eventually, they spilled the beans, and revealed that the owner before them was a devil worshiper that hung herself in the same bedroom my friend was living in. Since she was apparently a loner, she wasn't found for a few weeks after and by then, she had already swelled up and began to squirt due to the constriction of the rope...which would explain the blood on the walls.

 

They had heard enough and put the house up for sale soon after the meeting. Obviously, it didn't sell well, so they took any offer they could.

 

 

I'm definitely a skeptic. I also don't trust people enough to really believe their stories. It just so happens that all my friends and family members who claim to have had some paranormal experience  are the ones who are quite emotional and are often irrational in their thinking or already superstitious like your friend.

 

I have 5 friends in mind that if they came to me and said they experienced something inexplainable and thought paranormal activity was an option first I'd be shocked but I would actually give their account a little more credence.
