I went through this exact thing with my older son when he was that age. It was a nightmare. We tried everything including a small, protected class setting and anti-psychotic medications. I obtained a Masters in Special Education because of him. The things that helped him were: speech language therapy (they worked on things like listening and responding appropriately, eye contact and body language), Prozac, applied behavioral analysis and behavior management. Individual and group counseling was ineffective for him but helped me. I can make a list of what didn’t help. Anyway, he is now married and a good father. He has degrees in math and computer science, makes good money and gives back to the community.

This poignant collection will touch your senses, rekindle your memories and refresh your spirit.

Anagoge () An elevation of mind to things celestial.

Curcumin is a constituent (up to ∼5%) of the traditional medicine known as turmeric. Interest in the therapeutic use of turmeric and the relative ease of isolation of curcuminoids has led to their extensive investigation. Curcumin has recently been classified as both a PAINS (pan-assay interference compounds) and an IMPS (invalid metabolic panaceas) candidate. The likely false activity of curcumin in vitro and in vivo has resulted in >120 clinical trials of curcuminoids against several diseases. No double-blinded, placebo controlled clinical trial of curcumin has been successful. This manuscript reviews the essential medicinal chemistry of curcumin and provides evidence that curcumin is an unstable, reactive, nonbioavailable compound and, therefore, a highly improbable lead. On the basis of this in-depth evaluation, potential new directions for research on curcuminoids are discussed.

Dear Liza,
I truly believe I have a solution, and in spite of the numerous negative comments that might come my way I would like to tell you anyway. We know that a person’s will is their own. Nobody can make someone do things they don’t want to, but a person can become so influenced by negative or irrational thoughts that it compromises their will. In my experience there many kids that suffer from hearing “inner” voices and do not know how to articulate this behavior as these voices are often not distinguished by the person as not being their own voice. Almost inevitably people run to assess and find physical symptoms and cures when often times the cure is not just psychological but spiritual. I strongly suspect that your son is being mentally tormented with thoughts not his own by one or more evil spirits. I would therefore highly recommend that you get your son to someone who understands true spiritual authority to cast out evil spirits – someone who is filled with the Holy Spirit and has cast out demons before in the name of Jesus Christ.

How well is “Climate Hustle” doing in Hollywood terms? Here’s a list of current rankings of a variety of recent documentary feature films according to the Moviemeter score calculated by the industry website IMDB Pro. It includes all the Oscar-nominated documentaries for this year. It’s already scoring on the same level with one of them, I’m sure if you check next week it will have jumped ahead of lots of these films, in part thanks to scoring a mention from Jimmy Kimmel.

This is unfortunately so for most people dealing with personality disordered individuals–when you actually do choose to name and face it, the dysfunctional extended family “does not want to get involved, points fingers of blame at the one who is living in the truth of the situation, wipes their hands and abandons you utterly while telling everyone in the world they can get to listen to them: I tried to help, but they won’t listen to me–so that the number of people judging and blaming you for the violence you are actually trying to prevent becomes ten fold.

Well, sorry, but you find the same logic throughout the science world. I’m dealing right now with methods of teaching that common sense tells you they work, but running up against scientists who say they are not going to believe it works until they see data to show it. Same thing.

Filmmaking is incredibly difficult. Anyone charging out to make a “documentary” simply by interviewing everyone they can find who has something to say about a subject really needs to be aware of this. No one talks about the cost of boring an audience of like-minded thinkers.
