The Last Hour
By Kelsey Sheehy | US News
Between deciphering college financial aid awards and settling into a shoe-box sized dorm room with a perfect stranger or two, making the move from high school to college can be a shock to the system for even the most put-together teenager.
The transition, many may assume, would be even more jarring for students coming from a home-schooled environment.
"Transitioning from home school to college can be a daunting experience, especially with the lack of socialization that is associated with home schooling," says Los Angeles-based therapist Karen Hylen, who counsels people she says have not made the transition successfully.
But parents and students from the home-schooling community say the nontraditional method yields teens that are more independent and therefore better prepared for college life.
►This will begin a new Ukraine updating thread.. the war is at a pivot point.
Please feel free to visit and keep current with the latest updates on this escalating event.
►Yesterday, Oct. 20th was a pivot point in weaponry, tactics and assault by the Kiev oligarchy. The battle lines haven't changed... but they will. I will add more as news and ground attacks evolve against the self defense forces of Novorossiya.
The Ukr. has (now) begun using 1980's vintage weaponry against infrastructure, militiamen and civilian population centers.
When we reach nerdvana, even the law will be automated.
A human court, however, has decided that a current form of automated law enforcement is actually unenforceable, at least in Florida.
I am grateful to the open-eyed bloodhounds at Watchdog for spotting a Florida appeals court ruling.
The judges mulled the fact that private owners of red-light cameras were the ones who sent out tickets. The judges concluded: "Hang on, that's not legal."
"The poll had quite a large sample of 13,397 people from all over Switzerland who participated in the first phase of the 20 Minuten online survey on October 15.
The poll shows that 45% approve the Swiss gold initiative and 39% are against. There are 29% firm yes voters and 28% firm no voters (see graph). The poll shows 16% are leaning towards a yes or are “more yes” and 11% are leaning towards a no or are “more no.” "
When Should Citizenry defend, vs Cops? How 'bout WHILE 33 CA Oink-Oinks MURDER a Bankrobber's Hostage w/ SIX-HUNDRED Bullets!?Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Tue, 10/21/2014 - 22:39

I've started investigating web-site-for-hire folks in order to make nuremberg2.com a reality.
After reading http://www.dailypaul.com/328094/im-tired-of-war-propaganda and comments, I'm not so sure I want to "spread hate" even though the goal is to seek justice.
First I am sorry for this post, I needed to get this off my chest and didn't know of another place where I am anonymous enough to not warrant friends and family trying to talk. Sometimes strangers are more comforting. So thank you ahead of time for being the people that I feel comfortable talking to.
Life is hard, life moves fast, life doesn't take prisoners. It is cold, calculating and knows no mercy. It is nothing but a set of events that happen because of choices you make. Recompense must be paid, your ledger must be balanced and karma really is a bitch.
As my marriage is breaking up, and my wife is moving on and out... I find myself becoming more reflective. Who knew, that for someone who thought they were preparing for the end of the world, matters of the heart were just as bad if not worse than a collapse of society. That there really are no guards, or protections that seem to fit the situation. Those amazing highs when falling in love, getting married, having children, and just being around your soulmate are such a double edged sword... for when that one decides its time, it makes the lows seem all the worse.
The Prepper's Workbook: Checklists, Worksheets, and Home Projects to Protect Your Family from Any DisasterSubmitted by Chris Conspiraski on Tue, 10/21/2014 - 16:06
By Scott B. Williams and Scott Finazzo (2 great Scotts imo)
The first section is a workbook with a cacophony of fill-in-the-blanks, food needs per family member/allergies, blood types etc, and lists of and information on basically everything you'd want recorded ahead of any general emergency scenario. Example - page 92 explains the differences between aspirin, acetaminphine and ibuprofen. Part 2 outlines specifics for 7 scenarios ranging from tornado and earthquake to riots and civil unrest.
The appendix lists websites and books by other authors on prepping, survival, wilderness cookbooks, other great sources of info online.
A great 'library return rack find', and especially to know that others in my neighborhood are planning ahead for will come what may.
avg. 4.7 out of 5 stars, 39 reviews, Free look inside on Amazon:
"One of NYPD's finest arrests a man for playing in the subway after he recites the law word for word that allows him to perform for donations. He continues to sing as he is being handcuffed. A "fuck the police" chant subsequently follows."
As the officer is reading the law out loud, he realizes that the man is indeed permitted and changes the word to prohibited.
