- Patricia A. Adler - hopeful dieterHere it is. A review of the diet from someone who completed the first week and ready and willing to start week 2. I'm in my 6th decade and have been dieting most of my life. Sometimes with great results, other times not. I always could diet and lose in my younger years but once I reached my 40's it was harder and harder. By now my metabolism just doesn't work properly. Along came this diet and it is the first time I have lost any weight in a very long time. Results of week 1- I'm down 4 pounds. That for me is miraculous. As for food amounts you eat portions according to how much weight you want to lose. There is so much good food on the diet that I never had a hunger pang and sometimes had trouble getting the snack in. But I followed it pretty carefully and the results prove it. This now hopeful dieter recommends that you give it a try. Update: 9 weeks on and off due to celebrations etc. Down 13 lbs. My hubby is diabetic and he is controlling his sugar using diet. Do it!! Also was in New Orleans for a 2 week vacation during this time so going off of diet somewhat when I had to didn't sabotage me. Just went back on it and lost weight. This is a diet you can work with and still be human. Good luck.
- Gerald L. Summers - Out of Control Police - A Time For Change.The first day of my job as a police officer, I was confronted by a drugged out parolee who stuck a gun in my face. It never occurred to me to reach for the pistol on my hip. My partner, who took cover behind a tree, could have shot and killed the fellow at any time. He did not. I used my powers of persuasion to talk the parolee out of killing me. As far as I know he is still alive and kicking.
It was 1963 and the general police policy view was that if you shot someone, you'd better come back with a bullet in your body somewhere. Shooting someone who turned out to be unarmed would have gotten you fired or even prosecuted. You did not guess someone was armed, you had to know for sure.
Later, while attending the sheriff's academy in San Diego, I learned constitutional law as envisioned by police instructors there. The general theme was one of hostility to the courts and judges that were making decisions restricting an officer's discretion. I did not realize at the time I was not being taught constitutional law, but how to avoid complying with it. I ultimately became a probation officer, lawyer, and juvenile court referee. That education revealed the truth. As I look back on it all, I am of the opinion that police academies need to be reformed from the ground up. Shooting policies need to be completely changed. Killing someone because "he reached into his pants," is not only absurd, it demonstrates a complete lack of respect for the sanctity of life.
Did the drug war cause all of this? I think it has played a big role. As the money involved in drug transactions increased and the penalties for selling it went sky high, dealers began arming themselves to avoid arrest at all costs. But there are other factors at work as well. One, that may seem a stretch but is very real, is the workers compensation system. Cities do not like their officers being injured because the cost of its insurance would then rise. Thus, pressure grew on officers to protect themselves first and ask questions later. This led to officers drawing their guns without cause to believe they were really in danger. Watch any cop show and note how they now approach suspects, guns drawn. They assume the individual is armed rather than waiting to see if it is true. In 1963 we were taught not to draw the gun unless we intended to shoot someone.
Just yesterday I saw a video of two police officers firing into an SUV they knew held children and a woman they knew had done nothing but exceed the speed limit. Will they be prosecuted? Probably not. But they should be and we need to do something about a system that will allow them to escape untouched.
I am saddened when I see studies that show American police to be among the most hated public officials in the country. A few years ago, I saw a travel magazine picturing a Canadian Mounted Police officer on the cover. The article was all about how the Canadian people loved their primary law enforcement officers. What a difference; and one might ask why this is so. I think it is because those officers have proven over time that they will treat people with respect and dignity. Our officers are not taught to do that. Its all about officiousness, being tough and muscle bound, not losing control and a sense they are entitled to unlimited respect and the immediate compliance with any order they might give - legally justified or not.
Radley Balko deserves a medal for writing this book. He has boldly challenged the system and deserves to be applauded for doing so.
- humangenome - Great Reference GuideI switched careers and have never writen a resume or interviewed for a job before. In my other profession I was in demand and people know me, so if I was available I was just hired without all the traditional processes. I did some research and bought this book, followed Yate's recommendations and developed a resume. I applied to three jobs and landed three interveiws, the first one I blew the interview as I was unprepared. I went back and read the book on interviewing, went to the second interview prepared and nailed it! In addition, I nailed the third interview and now I have multiple offers facing me. Thank You Martin Yate.
- Sean Hoade - Holds true to Dekker's reputationTed Dekker's latest novel, Kiss, holds true to his reputation for gripping a reader's attention and keeping them guessing right till the end. The book is co-written with new author Erin Healy, and a new but subtle flavor has been added. Kiss is the story of a victem of a severe car crash, resulting in several months' memory loss. The story unfolds around the main character's search for truth, wanting to know what really happened that evening, and the shock received from "stealing" memories. This supernatural twist quietly and indirectly points to God throughout the plot, opening up the idea only as much as the reader wants. Betrayal of friends, disapproval of a parent, forgotten love, armed pursuit and standoffs all make this suspense worth the read. -- review by Kylara Hoade
