It's also the case that -- well, yes, so it would, empirically more likely affect African Americans. Also, understanding within political science, that people who register to vote the closer and closer one gets to Election Day tend to be less sophisticated voters, tend to be less educated voters, tend to be voters who are less attuned to public

Do you remember your dreams?

I had a dream last night that I remembered I'd had on a number of occasions recently. It seems to be centred around loneliness and, maybe, grief. I've been feeling emotionally "raw" for most of the day but I feel that perhaps the dreams are serving their purpose and bringing my feelings to the surface.

Do you think dreams have a purpose?

hello again and its eyes down for another AA grumpy column
following on from sundays shock revalation heres another story to tell

Some paedophiles with images of child abuse will escape prosecution, the head of the National Crime Agency has said.
Keith Bristow said expecting all the estimated 50,000 people in the UK who have accessed abuse images to be brought to justice was “not realistic”.
He said police would have to focus on those who posed most risk.

World (Over)Population

Oct 21, 2014 - 12:47 AM - by Mark Aspam
MANY years ago, perhaps 25 or 30, I read the following statistic: "Out of every TWENTY people who have EVER lived, one is alive today."

This seems unbelievable at first glance, but given statistics of the growth of world population, and following those stats in reverse, I do not doubt that it was true at that time.

Now, my question is this: Does anyone know what the current stats are in this regard?

I was just watching a very sad report on the news about a little 3 year old girl who was a suspected Ebola victim. The other families in the village are now concerned about their children who played with the little girl. It made me realise what these families are going through, it's so tragic.

Seeing this picture, gave me an excuse to use up those chewed tennis balls discarded by the dogs.

We have a very small area we deliberately let overgrow, to encourage wildlife and over the years, we've built up quite an eco system.

Very simple and cheap methids can attract so much wildlife to the garden.
Broken branches and logs picked up on walks stacked In a corner or even random encourage Insects to breed which In turn encourages Insect eating birds.... [Read More]
