Unredacted Report Very Damaging – Available Here

By On April 19, 2019

Redacted and unredacted have become familiar adjectives in common parlance. At one time, it seemed to be a word used mostly by lawyers and courts of law.

My Life and God’s To-Do-List

By On April 9, 2019

Depending on how it’s said, the command to ‘be quiet’ could be quite offensive – especially if you’re in the middle of a sentence. It can be rather embarrassing when you’re trying to explain your point of view and someone shuts you down with “Oh, be quiet!” Be quiet – does not only mean to close your mouth and cease…

Back in 1961, it seems Psychiatrist Peter B. Neubauer had a shocking amount of discretion in meddling with humans in researching the nature versus nurture question.

It’s Not a Level Playing Field – The Side Door

By On March 15, 2019

You may not find this shocking in the least. For many, it seems like a proverbial truism – people with connections and money have an uncanny way of getting what they want. As troubling as this reality is, we are resigned to a reluctant acceptance of unlevel playing fields in most sectors of society. But in the single most important…
