ASPCA603,849As part of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month in April, the ASPCA designated *National Dog Fighting Awareness Day* on April 8 to raise awareness on the prevalence of dog fighting in our country and to encourage animal lovers across the country to take action against this brutal form of #animalcruelty . Join us for a special Google Hangout featuring experts from the ASPCA and moderated by Dan Harris of ABC News. The Hangout will discuss the issue of #dogfighting , the @115172044976233644474's efforts to tackle this brutal crime and what people can do to help. The Hangout will also feature a dog rescued from a dog fighting case and given a second chance in a loving home.  ASPCA experts include:  _Tim Rickey - VP, ASPCA Field Investigations & Response_  _Dr. Pam Reid - VP, ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Behavior_  _Dr. Randall Lockwood - SVP, ASPCA Forensic Sciences & Anti-Cruelty Projects_ _Jessica Johnson - Sr. Mgr., ASPCA Grassroots Advocacy_  *There will also be a Q&A session to answer your questions, which you can submit via Twitter, Facebook and Google+ with #NDFAD .*  Henry Bergh, founder of the ASPCA, was repulsed by the brutality of the dog fighting he saw in New York and revised the state's animal cruelty law in 1867 to make all forms of animal fighting—bull, bear, dog and cockfighting—illegal for the first time. Today, the ASPCA continues to tackle the illegal underground world of dog fighting rings through investigations, law enforcement training, legislation, advocacy and rehabilitation of #dogs seized during dog fighting raids. Not everyone is aware of the horrific nature of dog fighting and the prevalence of this crime in the U.S., not to mention the long road that lies ahead for many dog fighting victims once they are removed from living in isolation on heavy chains.

Book Excerpt: “Don't cry yet.  It is not yet time.  You mustn't, not after how hard you worked to get here and how hard you've worked to gain the trust of everyone here.” Daki mind-spoke to her as they waited for the procession to make it through the large, open gates that separated the temple grounds from the outside world. “When will be the right time? When will I be allowed to publicly grieve?  I refuse to hide my emotions from the world, from the realm.  Emotions make us stronger, not weaker.” “I will let you know the time.  I will let you know when to release.  After that, however you see fit to grieve will be acceptable.” “So much I have sacrificed for this realm.  So much for my power.  So much death and many lies and so much deceit.  I've sold my soul to become this woman.  Sometimes I wonder if it was all worth it.  But then--” “But then you remember all those who sacrificed for you to be here-- those who sacrificed their lives and who they are, just so that you could be here.  You must not let them down.  And most of all, you must be the woman your husSalinor Online Purchase Day2013-11-15 06:00:0037  
Lori Friedrich57,402*Have you been cyber bullied?* _Every day, millions of people are harassed on line. Every day, people report the behavior. Every day a number of those people get no action from these networks and simply close their accounts and disappear._ *This week’s episode of Friday Live! is about cyber bullying.* Watch our show to hear from people who have experienced this online, hear stories of other's experiences, and even have a chance to join in on the conversation! If you have been a victim of cyber bullying on a social networking site, I want to hear from you! Seriously, I want to hear your story. *Have your voice be heard! Send me your story!* I am looking for panel members for the show. If you aren't camera shy and are willing to talk about your experiences, *please message me!*  *I really want to be clear about what we are talking about here. It isn't about your average troll, nor people not agreeing and the butt-hurt that ensues. It's about when the lines blur and people move into personal attacks that affect families, careers and personal safety.* Cyber bullying is defined in legal glossaries as: • actions that use information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm another or others. • use of communication technologies for the intention of harming another person • use of internet service and mobile technologies such as web pages and discussion groups as well as instant messaging or SMS text messaging with the intention of harming another person. Examples of what constitutes cyber bullying include communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior intended to harm another. Cyber bullying has been defined by The National Crime Prevention Council: “when the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person. A cyber bully may be a person whom the target knows or an online stranger. A cyber bully may be anonymous and may solicit involvement of other people online who do not even know the target.

2,055,180+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed. (Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf ) +Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists. Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist. First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work. The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener. Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement. At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute. Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percussive, two-handed fretboard attack, that you hear today and which has caused guitar luminaries such "Concerts In The Plus!"

I am sharing this in my writer's collection because the story I'm telling on my Patreon site (https://www.patreon.com/SusanLewis?ty=h) is about working with inmates, one in particular, and she was raised in foster care.

Her true story? Yep, absolutely used for prostitution.

Their stories need to be told. We must reform this system and do everything possible to always protect children. Anything less than that is a crime against them and all of humanity.

Please do what you can. Being a Patron is helping me reach out further and further into reforming the criminal justice system.

I'm not doing it because I have nothing better to do.

I'm not raising money because I need new things or a new car or need help with my rent.

I'm way too busy to keep up with all the writing, social media accounts, blogging, and more writing, so I'm compiling all of it into this.

I plan on sending out no more than once a week and it will be, of course, brilliant. :p

Chapter 18 - Escrow and almost homeless.

Yes, I know what it's like to lose a house. Yes, I know what it's like when you are betrayed by those who claimed to love you forever and never leave you. Thanks for asking. :p

I know what it's like to be facing living in your car rather than lose your pets. I know all about it.

I also know that it's not over until you are dead and buried.

Last time I checked, I still had a pulse.

Please join me and my patrons as I tell the story about how at this exact moment in my life, when all was lost and I had nowhere to go, it somehow lead me to my passion - taking broken and discarded souls and listening to them.

It took losing everything to eventually find solace in those deemed unworthy and unforgivable -  criminals.

Surprise!

Since December's full moon is on Christmas, Sleigh Ride is coming out early!

One advantage to Christmas on the moon is that anyone can visit the North Pole. The Lunar North Pole, that is. Toy manufacturers specifically sought that real estate so they could honestly stamp "Made at the North Pole" on their products.

There are also many touristy things to do, and close to the holidays, it's a busy place.

Frederick is calling it close to get home from his business trip in time for Christmas. When an unexpected delay arises, he may need to rely on unconventional transportation.

Sitting back, watching people complain or fight, I just shake my head and get back to work with another inmate, another student, another person that is grateful for the life they have, even if it's a miserable life. A person who is grateful that I exist and would do just about anything to have 1% of what I have.

What they had to say to me today:

We all, as humans have certain conditions in our lives. Some of these conditions are bad, some are good; but through work I have learned that any condition can be changed by the proper application.

Myself, I grew up in an environment that was infested with criminals, drugs and violence. Due to this I learned what I would never want my child to experience. But in this I failed to think of the child in me that was corrupted and due to this I have spent a lifetime in the grips of addiction to the negativity.

But in this I failed to think of the child in me that was corrupted and due to this I have spent a lifetime in the grips of addiction to the negativity.

The truth is though, at any time I could have made the choice to change and break the cycle. I know that for those that are living in a negative manner it is hard to find the freedom to escape, but the first thing we can do to change our conditions is recognize that we are in a certain state.

If we are surrounded by criminals, drugs, gangs and violence, then we are in danger of a life spent in prison and misery. However the only thing necessary is to say “NO, this is not for me.” Step away from those people and become your own person. This removes the danger from your life.

I have felt trapped since my earliest memory, but through my work with the people at Criminon and through the work in the “Conditions of Life” booklet I realize that I can control my own conditions and if I do not feel something is right I can change it. I am tired of the constant abuse of living negatively and any time I feel myself slipping I shall apply the tools I gained through this course to abstain from falling into those grips again.___

Enjoy my story on Medium about two women who can’t be more dissimilar and yet form a friendship that defies all the odds until the day death drove them apart.

The truth was, I really did want the dragon slayer. I wanted the guy that would go out and do that for me. The man who found the core of himself in my smile, in my eyes, and in my soul. The guy that would do anything for me and be grateful to do it, not the guy that would look outside, see a dragon and then slam the door, screaming like a little girl and telling me I needed to go slay it.

Chapter 15 - Jane and the judge.

So, your entire life has been from one foster home to another. Kicked to the curb because nobody knew what else to do or cared. Just another cog in the endless stream of thousands of other cogs.

But that one judge - that one guy on the bench that cared, that couldn't let his egregious error go.

What happens when he finally finds you?

Please join in and find out what happens when he finally 'catches" Jane.

Some scars are on the outside and some are on the inside. It's the ones on the inside that hurt.

SUPER DUPER BIRTHDAY COUPON TIME!

Being 42 was fun because I'm a nerd.  But as of next weekend I'll be 43, so it's time for my annual mega-special coupon for Finding Gaia.

Usually it's US$4.99 and I do occasionally do random coupons dropping that down to $3.99.

But only around my birthday can you get this special present from me to you of paying only 99 cents.  That's an 80% savings and it ends on Monday, December 30.

Only Smashwords lets me do a temporary coupon this way, so if you want the special sale price, you have to buy through Smashwords.  But they offer all major formats, no DRM, no geoblocking, and the book is TOTALLY YOURS forever.  If you switch devices later, come back to the page and it'll let you download a different file format.  You can have it on as many devices as you want.  I mean hey, I hope you don'tpirat... more »

SUPER DUPER BIRTHDAY COUPON TIME!

Being 42 was fun because I'm a nerd.  But as of next weekend I'll be 43, so it's time for my annual mega-special coupon for Finding Gaia.

Usually it's US$4.99 and I do occasionally do random coupons dropping that down to $3.99.

But only around my birthday can you get this special present from me to you of paying only 99 cents.  That's an 80% savings and it ends on Monday, December 30.

Only Smashwords lets me do a temporary coupon this way, so if you want the special sale price, you have to buy through Smashwords.  But they offer all major formats, no DRM, no geoblocking, and the book is TOTALLY YOURS forever.  If you switch devices later, come back to the page and it'll let you download a different file format.  You can have it on as many devices as you want.  I mean hey, I hope you don't pirate my book because that's not fair, but nobody is policing your transaction, unlike some other major retailers.

So go to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/180554 and use coupon code XG82V to pay $0.99 for Finding Gaia all this week.  Tell your friends, or better yet, use the Smashwords gift function (https://www.smashwords.com/about/gifts) to buy it for them.  Nothing says, "Hey friend, I was just thinking of you!" like the gift of lefty immortals with superpowers having adventures and hot sex.  No, really. Nothing else says that.

If you really want to buy it on Amazon you can, but you'll pay the full $4.99: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008K82BWE/  Other stores and information can be found at http://findinggaia.com/.

PS: You can read the first few chapters ABSOLUTELY FREE on Smashwords, so if you're not sure, go check out the free sample and then grab it for a paltry sum while you can!

PPS: If you've already read it, thank you, and if you want to make me all squishy for my birthday please post a review!  The most recent Amazon review is a troll, so it'd be sweet if someone replaced that with something more useful.

PPPS: Since it always comes up...yes, it's an ebook.  I am still waiting for about 25 people to tell me they will help support a paper edition, which will be expensive (probably at least $25 plus shipping).  I have about 12 people.  If I get enough interest, I'll run a Kickstarter for it.

It's time for my weekly shameless self promotion. Here is my book Television: Rare & Well Done. If you're a fan of classic television, American or British, then this is the book for you. It is a collection of essays dealing with topics ranging from the Golden Age of Television in the United States to classic shows such as The Avengers and Batman to defining what a "reality show" exactly is.

Chapter 14 - Found but not yet saved.

So, there's Jane, on a bridge in the middle of the night with a gun. Can you blame her? I can't and that's why this story is being written.

We have too many people in our world who have been kicked to the curb. God knows, some deserved it, but not all. No, not all.

Please join me and follow along as I give it my best shot to tell their stories. The stories of those who were never wanted except for the personal profit of others with no heart or soul.

Feeling a little scared? Angry? Apathetic?

All of the above?

Changing your profile picture just not quite handling it for you?

Please don't feed into the few that profit from creating a dangerous environment. Merchants of chaos WANT you to be scared and confused.

Well, fuck them.

Here's a free course for you. It works.

Live long and prosper. The planet is a beautiful place to be. Pay no attention to the idiots behind the curtain.

We're fine. We have work to do, but things are much better than you might realize.

In fact, life is pretty damn good.

In our communities, many of us live by a fierce code... mind your business, don't say nothing, don't tell the authorities jack. For most of us, it’s for good reason, we don’t trust authority, and it’s dangerous to speak on things that happen in these restless, volatile streets especially when blood is spilled.

We may need to break some old habits, take some new risks to make sure we practice what we preach. It takes courage to manifest justice, it takes courage to be a hero, it takes courage to ask for change and to BE the change we are asking for.
If anyone knows anything about the murder of Tyshawn Lee SAY SOMETHING... please...

My condolences to Tyshawn's mother, to his father and all those who loved him.

Rest in peace Tyshawn.
