These are shocking and sad statistics, and a lot of them fit my experience as an ex-pastor myself. Would you have the citations & sources of these statistics? And what else would it take to solve the problems, in addition to a blog with articles and the opportunity for online conversations?
The resident fox behind our house in the woods came about 200 ft from our dog radio fence and sat staring at our golden retriever shrieking. He/she did this for about an hour, even while I was out with the dog, until I walked up in front of the fence where the dog couldn’t go. We didn’t know if it was territorial deal or a desperate female fox. Then we started finding fox scat at the fringes and then right up next to our house, so we think it’s territorial. Not happy about this since this particular fox looks a little mangy and I don’t want my dog to pick up the parasite.
Apple recognizes this as taking service into your own hands and voids your warranty. Your only option, if anything else goes wrong, is to go back to the person who fixed it on the cheap, buy a brand new device (for $500-700 — ouch!), or buy a used one on eBay.
But Linus Pauling still had clout with the media. In 1971, he declared that vitamin C would cause a 10 percent decrease in deaths from cancer. In 1977, he went even further. "My present estimate is that a decrease of 75 percent can be achieved with vitamin C alone," he wrote, "and a further decrease by use of other nutritional supplements." With cancer in their rearview mirror, Pauling predicted, Americans would live longer, healthier lives. "Life expectancy will be 100 to 110 years," he said, "and in the course of time, the maximum age might be 150 years."
His intense feelings for his girlfriend may lessen his desires to look elsewhere for sex. But once those intense feelings of chemistry go away (as they usually do after 18 to 36 months – just long enough to conceive and raise a young child), his attraction will still spike every time he sees an attractive woman, in some form or another.
As I grew up and observed this child grow up, I found that she retained the jealous streak even after she’d graduated from school! (Her parents are family friends, so we stayed in touch, though the babysitting had stopped a long time back.) In conversation, she came across as a mature, well-read, impressive adult, but the veneer cracked the moment her parents (or anyone she was attached to) paid the least attention to anyone but herself.
