Getting Googled by Your Doctor

image edited by WI Will mental health clinicians become liable for missing your latest Facebook post? BY ERENE STERGIOPOULOS One day not long ago, police forcibly brought a man to the hospital after he updated his profile picture on Facebook. He was in his late 20s and had a long history of suicide attempts, a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, and a close relationship with his mental-healthcare team, which typically consists of physicians, nurses, and social workers. On the day of the incident, the team leader—the doctor who makes medical treatment decisions—reportedly stumbled on his Facebook page by accident.

A Millennial Veteran Takes on the Notion That His Generation Isn’t Man Enough

by C. Brian Smith Millennial masculinity was publicly mocked twice in three days earlier this month. (It’s unclear how many times it was privately mocked over the same period of time.) First, Joe Scarborough compared the young men of today who “stay at home playing video games” with those of the Greatest Generation who “liberated Europe from Nazism.” https://melmagazine.com/media/0f80e503c1a88de31e2ebe8c203eded4?postId=d0d4277d86d9 Next, Tomi Lahren questioned the physical prowess of millennial men struggling to “lift their bags into overhead bins.” https://melmagazine.com/media/3b4fe54b09a2cf991b5b3f4b8f683ec4?postId=d0d4277d86d9 Finally, David Brooks claimed in The New York Times that we’re living through “a crisis of masculinity.” As a number of people have pointed out, this all seemed to fly in the … Continue reading A Millennial Veteran Takes on the Notion That His Generation Isn’t Man Enough

ANIMAL CRUELTY RISING ALONG WITH VIOLENCE AND A DISCONNECTION FROM NATURE

by Vic Bishop, Staff Writer Waking Times Few things exemplify the darkness lurking within the hearts of human beings quite like animal cruelty. While human beings bicker, fight and war amongst themselves, animals are increasingly being treated with a severe lack of respect and compassion. This is a growing social problem stewing just below the radar of mainstream awareness. Recently, police in Georgia encountered the worst case of animal cruelty they’ve ever seen, finding over 100 dogs chained to trees and penned up in the woods with no food, water or shelter. Rescuers in Dortmund, Germany were recently called out to save a … Continue reading ANIMAL CRUELTY RISING ALONG WITH VIOLENCE AND A DISCONNECTION FROM NATURE

“Weather wars” theorists claim Hurricane Harvey was engineered, “steered” toward Houston as a “weather terrorism” weapon

by: Mike Adams (Natural News) We’re bringing this claim to your attention because a growing number of observers, websites and analysts are concluding that Hurricane Harvey was “engineered” and made into a “weather weapon” through a combination of ground-based temperature manipulation tools and “chemtrail” seeding. Yes, it sounds absurd at first, until you realize that Al Gore tells us that human activity controls the climate every day. It’s called “climate change,” and in fact, Al Gore and the climate alarmists directly tell us that we created Hurricane Harvey and all the other “extreme” weather events anyone sees. Weather modification, in other words, has become the de facto belief … Continue reading “Weather wars” theorists claim Hurricane Harvey was engineered, “steered” toward Houston as a “weather terrorism” weapon

HOW EATING RELEASES OPIOIDS IN THE HUMAN BRAIN

Posted by Soren Dreier Author: Seeker Whether it’s the holiday season or someone’s birthday in the office, it’s hard not to overeat when you’re surrounded by delicious food. But what if you’re surrounded by bland, tasteless food? It might be just as hard to say no. Researchers from the Turku PET Center in Finland found that when people drank a tasteless nutritional drink their brains released more opioids, the chemicals linked to pleasure and euphoria, than when they ate a piece of pizza. The study suggests that opioid release in the human brain may not always be linked to the experience of … Continue reading HOW EATING RELEASES OPIOIDS IN THE HUMAN BRAIN

THE SPELLS AND APPEARANCES OF WORDS CAN CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS

by Pao L. Chang, Contributor Waking Times Words, words, words, are what people see every day, but I do not see words like most people. What I see are worlds, worlds, worlds, and spells, spells, spells. Today, we live in a world dominated by words, which are magic spells that can be used to hypnotize the minds of people. All words have magic properties because they were created based on occult knowledge. To be more specific, they were designed based on sacred geometry and sacred sound. Furthermore, many of them were charged with magic intention. What the education system does not tell you about letters is that they are … Continue reading THE SPELLS AND APPEARANCES OF WORDS CAN CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS
