JON RAPPOPORT – Read this.  Because YOU are involved.  “Here is how foul the political air is now, how low the ‘logic’ has sunk. If you don’t agree that Facebook censoring a particular person is a good thing, then you must be supporting that censored person. You must be on his side. There is no middle ground.”

“An Adelaide court has heard a teenage girl accused of carrying out a school stabbing last week could pose a risk to the public if released on bail, saying her father owned 11 registered firearms.”  Hallo?  Once I had about 8 …..  (And my daughter represented Oz as a Junior at the Commonwealth Shooting Games in NZ a few years ago, and medalled) so WTF does THAT have to do with a stabbing???  Ever had that manipulated feeling??
ALTERNATIVE
“Pema Chödrön teaches us pause practice, a simple technique we can use anytime we need a break from our habitual patterns.  Our habits are strong, so a certain discipline is required to step outside our cocoon and receive the magic of our surroundings. Pause practice—taking three conscious breaths at any moment when we notice that we are stuck—is a simple but powerful practice that each of us can do at any given moment.”  Good advice.

“Mark your calendars for a spectacular celestial fireworks display this weekend! The Perseid meteor shower peaks on Sunday evening / Monday morning, and with no Moon in the sky this could be the best meteor display in quite some time.”
