A great deal of criminal violence is directed toward women who criminals often view as weak, easy prey. Nationally, the Bureau of Justice Statistics says that one in every four Americans will be the victim of a violent crime at some point in their lifetime. For women, the situation is even worse, with an estimated one out of every three women the victim of some type of sexual assault during their life-time.
Each year in Memphis alone, about 400 forcible rapes are reported to the Memphis Police Department. The FBI estimates that about one rape in three is reported to police. Victims’ advocacy groups believe the actual figure is that about one in six are reported. The truth is probably somewhere in between, which would mean there are between 1,200 to 2,400 rapes each year, just in our city. And that is just rapes—that does not include violent assaults, armed robberies, and home invasions.
So, how am I supposed to fight off a male attacker, who is probably both bigger and stronger than I am? What if there are more than one of them? The same way thousands of other women accomplish this—by being armed and skillful in my handgun’s use. By being armed and knowing what to do I can take back control over my own life. I do not carry a pistol so I can impose my will on someone else. I carry a pistol so someone else cannot impose their will on me!
I came to this realization some years ago when I was being stalked by a mentally disturbed man who made credible death threats against me, my family, and others. The police and private investigators were looking into these death threats, but were unable to do anything. I never thought I would have to pick up a gun until someone tried to take my and my son’s choices out of our hands. It then became very real when I found my picture on the front page of the newspaper in an article about crime.
In order to be able to protect myself and my son, I made a visit to Rangemaster and explained my situation to the staff. I began taking defensive firearms courses, and I was hooked. I have since taken numerous courses from several of the top trainers in the industry, and I became an NRA certified, Tennessee State certified and Mississippi state certified firearms instructor. This allows me to pass on the knowledge and skills I have gained, and with them the peace of mind knowing you too can protect yourself and loved ones.
At Rangemaster we have several other female instructors, and we all work together with the male instructors to provide up-to-date training for men and women alike, who wish to be safer and more secure in our often perilous world.
Make a commitment to yourself and your family that you will not be a victim. You are responsible for your own safety. The choice is yours.

For the first time ever, there are more single people than married people in America. And Erin Gibson knows just whom to blame: women. So she took to the streets of Hollywood to ask fellas what they're looking for in a perfect wife, from the kitchen to the bedroom. But is Erin really giving the guys just enough rhetorical rope to hang themselves? You'll have to watch for yourself, because a lady never tells.
Meet Erin Gibson. She's freakishly tall, sort of smart, and willing to do just about anything to get a bemused chuckle.
Her segment, Modern Lady, on infoMania, is dedicated to reporting and commenting on what's happening on Planet Lady.*

New York Fashion Week is over, but ladies in the media still have their bloomers in a bunch about wafer thin models. Modern Lady Erin Gibson probes the alien world of modeling and rest of the world's hysterical reaction to it - all the while giving normal ladies hope that models are anomalies that will one day be replaced by robots.

Joe Miller, Sarah Palin’s choice candidate for one of Alaska’s Senate seats, does not believe in climate change. That didn’t bother Alaska voters: this week, Miller bested Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the state’s Republican primary.
If that weren’t worrisome enough, it also emerged that the fossil fuel industry spent eight times more than environmental groups on lobbying in 2009, the year the House passed the climate change bill. It’s been a bad year already for environmental causes, and as the November election edges closer, progressives might want to start working overtime to regain momentum on climate and energy issues.
Murkowski was solidly against the idea of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulating carbon. But she was willing to talk about cap-and-trade programs, and at the very least, she was willing to admit climate change was happening. Depending on how November’s election shakes out, the shift towards climate-denial in Congress may only worsen. A slew of Republican candidates are convinced that, as one put it, “only God knows where our climate is going,” as Care2 reports.
A tougher tomorrow
Current political trends bode badly for the planet. If Congress couldn’t pass climate legislation while are in Democrats control of the House and Senate, there’s little hope that lawmakers will step up when facing opponents who don’t believe in climate change.
Carla Perez has a few ideas about how progressives and environmentalists can fight back — and they begin with accepting that, yes, giving up fossil fuels would mean sacrifice, but it wouldn’t be the end of the world. Perez, a program coordinator at social justice group Movement Generation, appeared recently on National Radio Project’s Making Contact and imagined how life would look without fossil fuels:
No iPods. No iPads. No plasma TVs. No motorized individual vehicles. No plastic bags. No pleather boots for $9.99 from Payless…. Then again, no island of plastic twice the size of Texas. No plumes of sulfuric acid over Richmond, California. No skyrocketing rates of cancer and diabetes concentrated in native and people of color communities all over the world. No spontaneous combustion of flames off of contaminated rivers.
“How bad would it be?” she asked.
To move from iPods to environmental justice, though, people like Perez will have to keep politicians like Joe Miller out of Washington. In an interview with Yes! Magazine, Riki Ott, a marine biologist and Exxon Valdez survivor, makes a good point about the challenges that environmental advocates face.
“This BP disaster, like the Exxon-Valdez, is more than an environmental crisis—it’s a democracy crisis,” Ott says. “Right now we’re playing the game: Going through regulatory arenas, tightening some laws. But that’s not good enough. The real question is, how do we get control of these big corporations?”
Electing politicians that don’t take corporate money or listen to industry lobbyists will help. Another way to move away from the dominance of fossil fuel companies is offering real alternatives to using their products.
Brave new NOLA
In New Orleans, in the five years since Katrina hit, the people rebuilding the city have worked to create greener alternatives, as Campus Progress reports. Here’s just one example:
Go Green NOLA encourages homebuilders to think small, since smaller homes use less energy. The group also makes suggestions such as installing windows and insulation systems with special attention to local weather and climate — think: humidity, and lots of it—and using shade trees and other landscaping to help beat back the southern sun.
Change can happen without devastation preceding it. In Massachusetts, the Green Justice Coalition worked to ensure that environmental justice provisions made it into the state’s $1.4 billion energy efficiency plan, The Nation reports. What’s more, the coalition made certain that Massachusetts citizens would feel the impact of the new plan directly:
There will be a financing plan to make energy-saving home improvements more affordable. Many of the 23,300 jobs to be generated by the plan will go to contractors who pay decent wages and meet “high road” employment standards. Finally, four pilot programs across the state will test a radically new outreach model by going door to door and mobilizing low- and moderate-income families in building greener neighborhoods.
Women lead the way
Progress doesn’t happen on its own, of course. At RH Reality Check, Kathleen Rogers suggests that female leaders make all the difference. “Women get the connections between climate change, public health and economic growth, because climate change is disproportionately affecting women,” she writes. “A new generation of women entrepreneurs, leaders and civil society, have demonstrated the potential for being the solution to the climate crisis. But they must be mobilized and given an opportunity to influence government and business.”
Rogers is right. Leaders are out there. Just listen to the whole of Carla Perez’ comments on Making Contact. The Green Justice Coalition’s Phyllis Evans also gets it. And even Sen. Murkowski was willing to work on climate change compromises, on some level.
Of course, it’s not just women who can lead the country and the planet away from current environmental and democratic crises. Paths forward are emerging; anyone can follow them.

Very controversial story and I don't know what to believe. I kinda leaning on her side since some guys can be real jerks like her ex. She claims a guy was using her to pay off everything when they are living together.
Here is some info from the website:
Colette: So me and Chris [Reinhold] met in the summer of 2007. We broke up in September of last year. Before I received the ring, we had a contract -- an oral contract. Chris said, "You're going to save for the wedding hall, you're going to pay all the bills, pay the rent, pay for all household utilities and food ... and I'm going to pay for this wedding ring. I really want to get you, like, the best wedding ring that I can possibly get you."
She continues explaining:
So we broke up in September, and I said, "Listen I'm going to hold the ring as collateral until you pay me back what you owe me. I said, "I understand that it was a conditional thing that was based upon the condition to get married. And we're not getting married. So I will give it back because it doesn't have any meaning to me." Because all the meaning a ring should have, this has no meaning. So he said, "That's fine, that's fine." And then he never really kept his end of the bargain.
So do you guys think? Does anyone believe her story? I kinda feel her. Next time someone ask you to pay everything please make sure you document all the payments. That is my advice.
Please the whole story to understand what she means.Very controversial story and I don't know what to believe. I kinda leaning on her... more
PORTLAND – April 3, 2010, About two dozen women marched topless from Longfellow Square to Tommy's Park this afternoon in an effort to erase what they see as a double standard on male and female nudity.
The women, preceded and followed by several hundred boisterous and m More..ostly male onlookers, many of them carrying cameras, stayed on the sidewalk because they hadn't obtained a demonstration permit to walk in the street. About a thousand people gathered as the march passed through Monument Square, a mix of demonstrators, supporters, onlookers and those just out enjoying a warm and sunny early-spring day.
After the marchers reached Tommy's Park in the Old Port, some turned around and walked back to Longfellow Square, but most stayed and mingled in the park. Some happily posed for pictures.
Police said there were no incidents and no arrests – nudity is illegal in Maine only if genitals are displayed.
Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was "enraged" by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration. The purpose, she said, was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking around topless as it does to men without shirts on.
However, McDowell said she plans to organize similar demonstrations in the future and said she would be more "aggressive" in discouraging oglers.

So everyone knows that I am totally hilarious, as well as a brilliant writer. Not everyone is aware that I'm also one of the coolest dudes who works for the internet. How does one measure coolness? Aside from impeccable style (I can assure you that I do wear Chuck Taylors and ironic sweaters) you are cool based on what music you listen to.
I've visited Brooklyn Vegan and I listen to Morning Becomes Eclectic. I've heard tons of cool dude jams. So this is my playlist of great songs from this year.
1. The Gossip - Heavy Cross
I saw naked posters of Beth Ditto on the streets of London, when I was doing a quick stint at the offices of Current UK. I was all like "wow they are much more tolerant in England to let her be a sex symbol." I realized that statement made me seem like a sexist body fascist, so when someone handed The Gossip's album to me, I gave an earnest listen. Then I was all like "I now understand why she's a sex symbol." It's a disco album played with punk rock instruments. Plus it's produced by Rick Rubin. I liked it so much that I tweeted about it.
2. Baaba Maal - Television
Baaba Maal is a Senegalese superstar, who has crafted this beautiful song. It packs a simple guitar riff with lots of percussive shakers, and the women singing things in French that I can almost understand. I believe "Télévision" translates to "TV" in anglais. I wonder if all Senegalese TV is as surreal as this.
3. IMS - Yo Digo Baila
I love this Instituto Mexicano del Sonido track. Techno basslines accented by tuba samples, kills it every time. A few months ago I wrote about rebajadas, a genre of slowed-down Cumbias in Northern Mexico. I emailed IMS to ask if he thought my correlation to Houton's Chopp'd and Screwed was accurate. He wrote back saying that I was totally wrong. He was really nice about it though.
4. Jay-Z - Empire State of Mind
So here's the part of my cool dude list, where I laud mainstream rap music, as if to tell my compatriots that hip hop is cool for hipsters to like. But you already knew that this is one of the best tracks of the year. Perhaps you don't have those same nostalgic feelings that I have for New York, but surely you can agree that this is the best anthem for the piano since Bennie and The Jets. If that doesn't get you, did you know there are allegations that Jay-Z is a freemason planning a New World Order?
5. Chairlift - Bruises
6. Matt & Kim - Daylight
Okay so I put both these songs on my 2009 list, but I feel like a real jerk because they both came out in 2008. As a consolation I did listen to them in 2009 also.
7. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Home
Maybe it's just because I live in Los Angeles, but this is the most buzzed about band in these parts. There are like nine hundred members in this band. This song sounds like a party at my parent's non-existent cabin in the foothills of Mount Shasta. Everyone showed up in a great mood with instruments, and whiskey. I tried to see these guys on Halloween, but we ended up waiting too long for Macaroni and Cheese sandwiches, and missed 95% of their set. There's always 2010.
8. Sleigh Bells - Ring Ring
Dude, you're clipping. That's what happens when you record louder than the recording device can record. Sleigh Bells doesn't give a shit. The lady-part of this duo was a teen popstar-turned-teacher. The dude was in a hardcore band. This song is so addictive. I guess its those rappy vocals over that Funkadelic sample. I think this band will get huge in 2010. I mean they were able to get industry bigwigs watch them perform late at night in Bushwick.
9. Fanfarlo - Harold T. Wilkins, Or How To Wait For A Very Long Time
Oh snap upon further research this jam came out in 2008 too. I'm beginning to look like a not very cool dude.
10. Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks
Clearly Brian Wilson cloned himself, and sent this clone to infiltrate the Brooklyn music scene. Grizzly Bear is the result. Thank you for this track, science.
11. SALEM x Gucci Mane - Round One
This dark ethereal remix of dope rap, is sublime. I listened to it so many times. If I were writing a dramatic promo for this track this would be the copy: “In 1999 people used to make jokes about electroclash/gangsta rap remixes. In 2009 people stopped joking.”
12. Phoenix - 1901
I know that Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is on everyone's "best of list." To make this "best of list" different I made sure to put their second most popular song, so as to increase my indie credibility. But this song is still really good.
13. The xx - Islands
This is one of those songs that was playing everywhere I went, and it took me months to realize that it was the xx. Now that I figured it out, I know why they will become superstars.
14. Woods - Rain On
This is cinematic music, even if you aren't making a movie. You can listen to this song on your iPod walking down a rainy street, and feel like your life is somehow more meaningful. I mean it's not any more meaningful, it'll just seem that way, and perception is 9/10ths of the law.
15. Fool’s Gold - Surprise Hotel
Which white band performing African pop do you like the best? My answer is LA based Fool's Gold, because they know how to party a lot better than those stuffy Columbia grads, Vampire Weekend.
16. Dan Deacon - Snookered
I used to say that Dan Deacon is what would happen to me if I let myself go. That's not entirely true. Though I would be more fat and bald, I still wouldn't be able to make beautiful music from broken children's instruments. This eight-minute behemoth builds in a way you wouldn't necessarily expect from the man behind Crystal Cat.
17. Kid British - Sunny Days
This song sounds like it was recorded by Electric Light Orchestra, if they knew how to rap. The lyrics are about a dude who is sad, but you wouldn't know that by the upbeat nature of this jam. Why not get the whole album, and impress all your stateside friends.
That's my list. I'd like to wish a happy new year to cool dudes and ladies everywhere.So everyone knows that I am totally hilarious, as well as a brilliant writer. Not... more

Look , I like Barack Obama, but some important information has come to light. The president, our president is a robot.
Ladies and gentlemen, your President is a robot. Or a wax sculpture. Maybe a cardboard cutout. All I know is no human being has a photo smile this amazingly consistent.
On Wednesday, the Obamas hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, during which they stood for 130 photographs with visiting foreign dignitaries in town for the UN meeting. The President has exactly the same smile in every single shot. See for yourself — the pictures are up on the State Department’s flickr. And, of course, compressed into 20 seconds for your viewing pleasure.
via Eric Spiegelman
If I were a mainstream conspiracy theorist I might suggest that Barack Obama's robot like characteristics, mean that he was a robot created by the New World Order, to throw people onto death panels, and kill all human beings. But I'm an indie conspiracy theorist, while I believe that Barack Obama is a robot, it means he is working overtime to pursue progressive agenda's that are not humanly possible. A regular human has trouble convincing the lumpenproletariat that helping other secure health care is important. This is why a robot stand-in is simply necessary.Look , I like Barack Obama, but some important information has come to light. The... more
How can one Trim and Slim by practicing the Shaktebrhamaanda Kreyaa? Read this article to find out for yourself.
The overweight people tend to generally feel disturbed mentally by the excess weight/fat of their physical bodies, since several diseases are associated with one's being overweight. This seems to be especially true in the case of the American people a large number of whom are said to be overweight. Also, the ladies conscious of their figures can't take in this weight problem easily.
There are already numerous remedies being offered to overcome one's excess weight and become slim. So, you may wonder naturally as to what new remedy is being offered here?
Well, this remedy already exists, but I am honestly sure of the most of you not being aware of it. This remedy called the SHAKTEBRHAMAANDA KREYAA consisting of both the ‘PRAANNA SHODHANA KREYAA' and the NAABHEBRHAMAANDA KREYAA does help tremendously in reducing one's excess weight with the main bonus being a flexible and SLIM physical body.
[A]. The Concept of the ‘PRAANNA SHODHANA KREYAA':
1. Sit comfortably on a woolen mat in the Sidhaasana mode. Now, close both of your eyes. Concentrate on the third eye center. With the inner focus being on the third eye center, do the AAde Shankaraachaarya's NAADEE SHODHANA KREYAA. This essentially means that first of all do close your right nostril with the help of your right ANGUUTHAA [thumb] and inhale the breath slowly through your left nostril, retain this breath for 2-5 seconds and exhale it slowly through the left nostril only. This is one cycle. Repeat such 11 cycles.
2. Then, close your left nostril with the help of the Tarjanee [index finger] of the right palm and inhale the breath slowly through your right nostril, retain this breath for 2-5 seconds and exhale it slowly through the right nostril only. Repeat such 11 cycles.
3. After this, close your right nostril with the help of your right Anguthaa [thumb] and inhale the breath slowly through your left nostril, retain this breath for 2-5 seconds. Then, close the left nostril with the TARJANEE [INDEX FINGER] of the right palm, open the right nostril by lifting the ANGUUTHAA from the right nostril and exhale the retained breath through the right nostril. Hold this breath outside for 1-5 seconds. Keep your left nostril closed, inhale the breath slowly through your right nostril, retain this breath for 2-5 seconds and then close the right nostril with the ANGUUTHAA of the right palm, open the left nostril by lifting the TARJANEE [INDEX FINGER] of the right palm from the left nostril and exhale the retained breath through the left nostril. This process is one cycle. Repeat such 11 cycles.
The ‘PRAANNA SHODHANA KREYAA' warms up the physical body and makes it ready to receive the application of the NAABHEBRHAMAANDA KREYAA comfortably.
[B] The Concept of the NAABHEBRHAMAANDA KREYAA:
1. The word ‘SHAKTE' means the POWER or the FORCE. The word ‘BRHAMAANDA' means the UNIVERSE.
2. Here, the power of the PRAANNA is used to integrate the life-forces of both the NAABHE [Navel] and the BRHAMAANDA [Skull/brain] areas.
3. After having completed the AAde Shankaraachaarya's NAADEE SHODHANA KREYAA, remain in the relaxed Sidhaasana position for 2-5 minutes, inhaling and exhaling the breath from both the nostrils slowly. Then, take the breath in from both the nostrils slowly with the stomach expanding/bulging, close your left nostril with the help of the right Tarjanee and close your right nostril with the help of the right Anguutha simultaneously, retain this inhaled breath in the stomach for 2-5 seconds, open both of your nostrils by removing the right Tarjanee from the left nostril and the right Anguthaa from the right nostril and then exhale it CHANTING the word ‘A-U-M'. This is one cycle. Do such 11 cycles.
While doing the above Kreyaa, you will feel the pressure on your tummy, hips and the curve area on your waist. During the exhaling, you will feel the tummy trying to meet your spinal chord with the breast/chest moving up and outward besides the curve area on both sides of the waist stretching inwardly-up in a curvilinear way. Also, you will feel the vibrations of the word A -U-M travelling from the lower part of your body to the upper part of your body. This vibration and the slow pressure makes your this Tummy-Hips-Curve area flexible.
4. Now, take the breath in from both the nostrils slowly with the chest/breast lifting up and expanding/bulging, close your left nostril with the help of the right Tarjanee and close your right nostril with the help of the right Anguutha simultaneously, retain this inhaled breath in the BRAHAMAANDA [skull/brain] area for 2-5 seconds, open both of your nostrils by removing the right Tarjanee from the left nostril and the right Anguthaa from the right nostril and then exhale it. This is one cycle. Do such 11 cycles.
While doing the above Kreyaa, you will feel the upward and the outward pressure on your breast/chest, stretching of the abdomen and the curve area on your waist. During the inhaling, you will feel the tummy trying to meet your spinal chord with the breast/chest moving up and outward besides the curve area on both sides of the waist stretching inwardly-up in a curvilinear way. This slow pressure/stretching makes your this Breast/Chest-Abdomen-Curve area flexible.
The Perceptible Benefits of the SHAKTEBRHAMAANDA KREYAA:
1. The Praannas/life force becomes clean/purified.
2. It helps get a lot of the Karmic load burnt/deleted.
3. It makes the Maanav [human] body flexible.
4. Above all, it does help the ladies to get that figure and curvilinear body that they desire so much in their fantasy.
The Essential/Desired Precautions:
1. Do this Kreyaa under the guidance of some really fully competent Yoga instructor/master/expert/guru only.
2. Those having undergone surgeries and those with brittle/weak bones/hyper-tension need not do this Kreyaa.
3. This Kreyaa must be done on an empty stomach only.
4. Your both eyes must remain closed throughout this Kreyaa.
5. This Kreyaa must be done preferably only when you are totally physically fresh and relaxed.
6. The inhaling and the exhaling of the breath must be done absolutely slowly and with patience.
7. Don't stretch up/out your breast/chest beyond the optimum level, as there always is the danger of the breast/chest tissues getting ruptured if it is done unsafely.
8. Do take care of your food regimen. Don't eat any solid food for 30 minutes at least, after having done this Kreyaa. Eat any solid food only after having taken in some amount of water.
