MONSTER SUPERSTORM WATCH

News

NOAA’s weather service touches the lives of every American. Every day, decisions are made based on NOAA weather information. From the mundane like, should I pack an umbrella today? to the most critical and potentially life-saving.

The one we'd like to pay attention to is the latter. Please, take a close look at their national map and then a much closer review of the northeastern coast of US.

GUNS = SHOOTINGS

Problem

US government officials spend little money researching the effect of gun ownership on crime and homicides. Meanwhile, the NRA loves to preach about how wonderful everyone possessing guns is.

Paranoid President?

Problem

A long-standing pattern of pervasive distrust and suspiciousness of others. The person with a paranoia will believe others motives are suspect.

The president is now blaming Obama. Why won't he take full responsibility, people?

News

NY Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has declared a state of emergency as a major winter storm moves across the New York City metropolitan area.

The State of Emergency covers the following counties: Suffolk, Nassau, Richmond, Kings, Queens, New York, Bronx, Westchester and Rockland.

Cuomo also activated the State Emergency Operations Center to monitor the major winter storm that is expected to bring moderate to heavy snow and strong winds to Long Island, New York City and the Lower Hudson Valley, and usher in extremely cold temperatures statewide.

THE WORLD GOING TO POT

News

A cleverly orchestrated international campaign with extremely good timing and a global growing skeptical public, along with a worldwide weariness over failed marijuana laws are all pointing towards the eventual legalization for the personal use of legal pot.

In the United States of America, the states of Colorado and Washington have legalized the recreational use of marijuana and the US Justice Department has conveniently turned a blind eye to these local laws.

GOP RULES US

News

Republicans now control of The Senate and The US House of Representatives in a wave of Election Day wins which serve as a repudiation of President Barack Obama's second-term policies and put a series of Democratic states under control of new Republican governors.

Republicans won formerly Democratic Senate seats in seven states, including Arkansas, Montana, South Dakota, West Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and North Carolina.

Republicans scored a net gain of six seats to win the majority for the first time since 2006.

SEXUAL TRAUMA SCAR

Problem

To model these experiences in laboratory studies, we developed SCAR, which stands for Sexual Con specific Aggressive Response. During puberty, a rodent female is paired daily for 30-min with a sexually-experienced adult male.

Classroom Guns

Problem

Parents, students and teachers, start worrying about guns inside the classroom because they’re already there.
Teaching fire arms safety may be the only issue people on both sides of the gun control debate can agree on.

Some have suggested bringing guns to class would suppress free speech and academic freedom because people may be hesitant to address controversial subjects for fear of someone using their weapon in an emotional moment.
