Josephine Butler (1828-1907) writes in her journals, pamphlets and diaries of the second half of the nineteenth century about seeing thousands (yes, thousands) of little girls, some as young as four or five, in the illegal brothels of London, Paris, Brussels, and Geneva ... The children had a life expectancy of two years, yet the brothel owners, frquently women, seemed to have an unlimited supply ... 'Clean' children, who were free from venereal disease, commanded a high price. All this is well documented, but strangely Mrs [sic] Butler never mentions little boys, though this branch of the trade must have been going on.Jennifer Worth Documented Sayings By Jennifer Worth: Josephine Butler (1828-1907) writes in her journals, pamphlets and diaries of the second half of
the gold standard was incapable of preventing the sort of financial booms and busts that were, and continue to be, such a feature of the economic landscape. These bubbles and crises seem to be deep-rooted in human nature and inherent to the capitalist system. By one count there have been sixty different crises since the early seventeenth century - the first documented bank panic can, however, be dated to A.D. 33 when the Emperor Tiberius had to inject one million gold pieces of public money into the Roman financial system to keep it from collapsing.Liaquat Ahamed Documented Sayings By Liaquat Ahamed: the gold standard was incapable of preventing the sort of financial booms and busts that
As a quick aside, phantoms of the living are not unheard of. There are plenty of documented cases in the paranormal case literature that detail apparitions of people who are not actually dead. But they rarely appear within sight of the physical person themselves, and certainly not at the same time.Richard Estep Documented Sayings By Richard Estep: As a quick aside, phantoms of the living are not unheard of. There are plenty

One USDA scientist went so far as to claim that there has never been a documented case of food-borne illness from eating fermented vegetables.Michael Pollan Documented Sayings By Michael Pollan: One USDA scientist went so far as to claim that there has never been a
Moreover, it is so important that people have the opportunity to share their stories and have them documented. There have been large-scale oral history projects after many events, from September 11th to Hurricane Katrina. Many oral history projects are much more confined, but equally valuable. We can learn about different working conditions, living conditions, trauma experiences and much more through oral history.Patricia Leavy Documented Sayings By Patricia Leavy: Moreover, it is so important that people have the opportunity to share their stories and
I have invented nothing. I have simply documented a magical alchemy that I want to share.Gregory Colbert Documented Sayings By Gregory Colbert: I have invented nothing. I have simply documented a magical alchemy that I want to
The self-deception of slave owners and proponents of slavery is well documented by the historians Eugene Genovese and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese in their book Fatal Self-Deception: Slaveholding Paternalism in the Old South. Slavery was not perceived by most slaveholders in the nineteenth century to be an exploitation of humans by other humans for economic gain; instead, slaveholders painted a portrait of slavery as a paternalistic and benign institution in which the slaves themselves were seen as not so different from all laborers - black and white - who toiled everywhere in both free and slave states; further, the South's "Christian slavery" was claimed to be superior.Michael Shermer Documented Sayings By Michael Shermer: The self-deception of slave owners and proponents of slavery is well documented by the historians
The United States Congress ordered an end to the bombing of Cambodia in August 1973. By that time American aircraft had dropped about 2.75 million tons of ordnance, causing massive carnage that has never been fully documented or accounted for. Yet Congress's ban was enacted not out of concern for the Cambodian victims. As Representative Tip O'Neill said during the floor debate, "Cambodia is not worth the life of one American flier." TheJoel Brinkley Documented Sayings By Joel Brinkley: The United States Congress ordered an end to the bombing of Cambodia in August 1973.
At least Lars was curious about the appeal of jazz to black folk; for most observers, such ponderation is akin to contemplating why gorillas like bananas. The attractiveness of jazz to the nonblack is well documented in publicly funded documentaries where experts speak of jazz in the past tense. They look authoritatively into the camera and ingratiate themselves with the Man by saying things like, "White people were hearing something in jazz that says something deeply about their experience. I'm not sure that it would have been this way if we were not a country of immigrants ... so many people felt kind of displaced ... I think that was part of its amazing appeal, was how it spoke to feeling out of sort and out of joint and maladjusted."
What hogwash. Does my fondness for classical music make me well adjusted? Besides, people who are really fucked up don't turn to jazz; they turn to heroin, opium, whiskey, and Vonnegut.
Paul Beatty Documented Sayings By Paul Beatty: At least Lars was curious about the appeal of jazz to black folk; for most

The upsides of the high-reactive temperament have been documented in exciting research that scientists are only now beginning to pull together. One of the most interesting findings, also reported in Dobbs's Atlantic article, comes from the world of rhesus monkeys, a species that shares about 95 percent of its DNA with humans and has elaborate social structures that resemble our own.Susan Cain Documented Sayings By Susan Cain: The upsides of the high-reactive temperament have been documented in exciting research that scientists are
Baseball is probably the world's best documented sport.Ford Frick Documented Sayings By Ford Frick: Baseball is probably the world's best documented sport.
Rare is the book that can actually transform us into better, more fulfilled people. Having combed through the research and documented case studies all over the world, Kristof and WuDunn present the clearest view I have ever seen of the human soul. A Path Appears tells us whether we are intrinsically good, why specific ways we parent our newborns help predict their chances for success, and how we can live lives of greater significance. This book, full of rich and riveting true stories, reminds us that human greatness is all around us, and even within us, if we dare to look.Ann Curry Documented Sayings By Ann Curry: Rare is the book that can actually transform us into better, more fulfilled people. Having
In Tetlock's research, subjects are asked to solve problems and make decisions.11 For example, they're given information about a legal case and then asked to infer guilt or innocence. Some subjects are told that they'll have to explain their decisions to someone else. Other subjects know that they won't be held accountable by anyone. Tetlock found that when left to their own devices, people show the usual catalogue of errors, laziness, and reliance on gut feelings that has been documented in so much decision-making research.12 But when people know in advance that they'll have to explain themselves, they think more systematically and self-critically. They are less likely to jump to premature conclusions and more likely to revise their beliefs in response to evidence.Jonathan Haidt Documented Sayings By Jonathan Haidt: In Tetlock's research, subjects are asked to solve problems and make decisions.11 For example, they're
Community connectedness is not just about warm fuzzy tales of civic triumph. In measurable and well-documented ways, social capital makes an enormous difference in our lives ... Social capital makes us smarter, healthier, safer, richer, and better able to govern a just and stable democracy.Robert D. Putnam Documented Sayings By Robert D. Putnam: Community connectedness is not just about warm fuzzy tales of civic triumph. In measurable and
It's well-documented that stress and low self-confidence are detrimental to productivity, especially on tasks requiring creative thinking. Maintaining a healthy exercise routine saves time, creativity, and energy in the long run.Timur Zhiyentayev Documented Sayings By Timur Zhiyentayev: It's well-documented that stress and low self-confidence are detrimental to productivity, especially on tasks requiring
It is a documented fact. I read it in People magazine.Meg Cabot Documented Sayings By Meg Cabot: It is a documented fact. I read it in People magazine.
I love L.A. It's a great, sprawling, spread-to-hell city that protects us by its sheer size. Four hundred sixty-five square miles. Eleven million beating hearts in Los Angeles County, documented and not. Eleven million. What are the odds? The girl raped beneath the Hollywood sign isn't your sister, the boy back-stroking in a red pool isn't your son, the splatter patterns on the ATM machine are sourceless urban art. We're safe that way. When it happens it's going to happen to someone else.Robert Crais Documented Sayings By Robert Crais: I love L.A. It's a great, sprawling, spread-to-hell city that protects us by its sheer

This book was written observing the premise that the seeds of Holocaust denial take root and prosper with misinformation. Clarity and transparency are imperative, as they leave no room for denial theories that would deprive the victims justice, or rob the living of a future. Generations of historians have enthusiastically gone about their craft knowing full well that 'he who owns the past, owns the future'. Improperly documented history, or more precisely, fraudulent versions of history not only deprive the victims of pasts injustices due recognition of their suffering, but also rob the living of a fair chance at a future free from the dangers of repeating past injustices.
A.E. Samaan Documented Sayings By A.E. Samaan: Past is PrologueThis book was written observing the premise that the seeds of Holocaust denial
Happiness leaves such slender records; it is the dark days that are so voluminously documented.Truman Capote Documented Sayings By Truman Capote: Happiness leaves such slender records; it is the dark days that are so voluminously documented.
In particular, if consciousness is an ontological fundamental-that is, a primary element of reality-then it may have the power to achieve what is both the best-documented and at the same time the spookiest effect of the m ind on the material world: the ability of consciousness to transform the infinite possibilities for, say, the position of a subatomic particle as described by quantum mechanics into the single reality for that position as detected by an observer. If that sounds both mysterious and spooky, it is a spookiness that has been a part of science since almost the beginning of the twentieth century. It was physics that first felt the breath of this ghost, with the discoveries of quantum mechanics, and it is in the field of neuroscience and the problem of mind and matter that its ethereal presence is felt most markedly today.Jeffrey M. Schwartz Documented Sayings By Jeffrey M. Schwartz: In particular, if consciousness is an ontological fundamental-that is, a primary element of reality-then it
So in the sense that we were all dealing with that freer approach, yes, it was certainly one of the first contacts, perhaps the first contact, when Peter came that summer. So it's a very pivotal moment that is documented there.Evan Parker Documented Sayings By Evan Parker: So in the sense that we were all dealing with that freer approach, yes, it
I lived my twenties in a very public manner and if anyone's twenties are documented it's not always going to be pretty.Sienna Miller Documented Sayings By Sienna Miller: I lived my twenties in a very public manner and if anyone's twenties are documented
It's documented, when a person is forbidden something, once it's available, they tend to overindulge."
Tony met her gaze, his tone a sultry melody, "Before it is made available, a person may dream of it, long for it, and fantasize about it. Especially if they once had it and know how amazing it is.
Aleatha Romig Documented Sayings By Aleatha Romig: It's documented, when a person is forbidden something, once it's available, they tend to overindulge."Tony

No cases of conjoined triplets or quadruplets have been documented.Darin Strauss Documented Sayings By Darin Strauss: Conjoined twins are identical siblings who develop one placenta out of a single fertilised ovum.
My mom had a Canon AE1 camera and I read the manual and that's basically how I became a photographer. I was in the Baltimore punk scene. I knew it was a special time, so I went out and documented that whole era. I was the only person to really do it of my friends in real black and white, beautiful portraits.Jeff Vespa Documented Sayings By Jeff Vespa: My mom had a Canon AE1 camera and I read the manual and that's basically
Sara Scherr and Jeff McNeely have given us a thoughtful, sensible book about a topic of great importance to the world. There is no food security, no poverty reduction, no environmental sustainability without transforming our agricultural practices. The book ?presents well documented cases of best practices from all over the world. It should be required reading for all concerned with agriculture, the environment, food security or just the future of our children.Ismail Serageldin Documented Sayings By Ismail Serageldin: Sara Scherr and Jeff McNeely have given us a thoughtful, sensible book about a topic
The US has attacked countries like Grenada, Panama, Libya ... the list of victims of US terrorism is almost infinite. And the US government's participation in torture, whether in El Salvador, Guatemala, Chile ... is well-documented and widely known.Assata Shakur Documented Sayings By Assata Shakur: The US has attacked countries like Grenada, Panama, Libya ... the list of victims of
The brain is both an emitter and a receiver of many forms of electromagnetic energy. There are fields of various forms around all living things, some we know about and others have yet to be documented.Steven Magee Documented Sayings By Steven Magee: The brain is both an emitter and a receiver of many forms of electromagnetic energy.
He [Ted Williams] was only a 23-year-old kid when he batted .406 in 1941, but then the season ended and our country came under attack at Pearl Harbor - and by 1943 he was a Marine fighter pilot serving overseas who cheated death on several documented occasions. He came back in 1946, and he won his first career MVP after hitting 38 home runs.Tucker Elliot Documented Sayings By Tucker Elliot: He [Ted Williams] was only a 23-year-old kid when he batted .406 in 1941, but
Carbon monoxide and other pollutants from Asia have been documented on the West Coast since the late 1990s and are actually affecting weather patterns there as well. Global climate change as a result of global industrialization is now a reality, no matter where we live. IElizabeth L. Cline Documented Sayings By Elizabeth L. Cline: Carbon monoxide and other pollutants from Asia have been documented on the West Coast since
If she had been a normal female, she would have swooned. But she was not normal, never had been.
"Good grief, you are impossibly handsome," she said breathlessly. "I vow, I have never experienced the like. For an instant, my brain stopped altogether. I must say, my lord, you do clean up well. But next time, I wish you would call out a warning before you come into view, and give me a chance to brace myself for the onslaught."
Something dark flickered in his eyes. Then a corner of his hard mouth quirked up. "Miss Adams, you have an interesting - a unique - way with a compliment."
The trace of a smile disoriented her further. "It is a unique experience," she said. "I never knew my brain to shut off before, not while I was full awake. I wonder if the phenomenon has been scientifically documented and what physiological explanation has been proposed.
Loretta Chase Documented Sayings By Loretta Chase: If she had been a normal female, she would have swooned. But she was not
Anti-Christian sentiment is vehemently enforced in the Quran, as the book emphatically preaches that the crucifixion of Jesus never occurred, "they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them."32 However, this cornerstone of Islamic theology is proven to be a lie as ancient secular and Jewish sources (Flavius Josephus and Tacitus) in Judea documented Christ's crucifixion and resurrection - this happened 600 years before Muhammad was even born. Yet,J.K. Sheindlin Documented Sayings By J.K. Sheindlin: Anti-Christian sentiment is vehemently enforced in the Quran, as the book emphatically preaches that the
There are some that are - REM Behavior Disorder, we'll see some court documented cases. And they really need to have a thorough evaluation with a sleep specialist.Shelby Harris Documented Sayings By Shelby Harris: There are some that are - REM Behavior Disorder, we'll see some court documented cases.
When I found out I had to take off my shirt in 'Teen' movie, I panicked and hit the gym. I was like, 'It's going to be on film, documented, for my children to see. I can't be 140 pounds. I need to put on a little bit of muscle.'Chris Evans Documented Sayings By Chris Evans: When I found out I had to take off my shirt in 'Teen' movie, I
John Marshall Clemens's land purchases and the family's subsequent sales of the land have been only partly documented from independent sources. The extant grants, deeds, and bills of sale are incomplete, but it was also the case that contradictory or inaccurate deeds often led to disputed claims. Orion Clemens referred to one cause of such conflict in a letter to his brother on 7 July 1869, alleging that "Tennessee grants the same land over and over again to different parties" (OC to SLC, 7 July 1869, CU-MARK, quoted in 3? July 1869 to OC, L3, 279 n. 1 [bottom]; for family correspondence on the subject from 1853 to 1870, see L1, L2, L3, and L4).Mark Twain Documented Sayings By Mark Twain: John Marshall Clemens's land purchases and the family's subsequent sales of the land have been
Looks like someone will have to save him," said Brother Henry without much urgency. "Oh, Hell." Bastian gathered up the hem of his habit to disrobe. "Don't leap in after him," said Brother Lionel. "He'll drag you down. Well-documented fact. Best to save someone who's already unconscious. It's dangerous otherwise." "That's soon sorted," said Brother Henry, knelt up in the boat and raised one of the oars like a club. "Oi! Clement!" The drowning sacristan glanced upwards and Brother Henry struck downwards.Heide Goody Documented Sayings By Heide Goody: Looks like someone will have to save him," said Brother Henry without much urgency. "Oh,
Life in the trenches has been well documented, though mostly from the point of view of the victors. Especially in the English-language literature on World War I, there is not a huge amount that captures the experiences of the ordinary German soldier. The present translation of my grandfather's memoirs of his time on the Western Front may offer some redress.Gunther Simmermacher Documented Sayings By Gunther Simmermacher: Life in the trenches has been well documented, though mostly from the point of view
The pamphlets going back to London telling of the violent derring-dos of the Bahamian pirates were the ones that brought infamy to the names of Charles Vane and Blackbeard. How much of that is really documented history? It carries a flavor with it, but take all this with a pinch of salt.Ray Stevenson Documented Sayings By Ray Stevenson: The pamphlets going back to London telling of the violent derring-dos of the Bahamian pirates
The crimes of the U.S. throughout the world have been systematic, constant, clinical, remorseless, and fully documented but nobody talks about them.Harold Pinter Documented Sayings By Harold Pinter: The crimes of the U.S. throughout the world have been systematic, constant, clinical, remorseless, and
In addition to localized neural networks, hallucinogenic drugs have been documented to trigger such preternatural experiences, such as the sense of floating and flying stimulated by atropine and other belladonna alkaloids. These can be found in mandrake and jimsonweed and were used by European witches and American Indian shamans, probably for this very purpose.32 Dissociative anesthetics such as the ketamines are also known to induce out-of-body experiences. Ingestion of methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA) may bring back long-forgotten memories and produce the feeling of age regression, while dimethyltryptamine (DMT) - also known as "the spirit molecule" - causes the dissociation of the mind from the body and is the hallucinogenic substance in ayahuasca, a drug taken by South American shamans. People who have taken DMT report "I no longer have a body," and "I am falling," "flying," or "lifting up.Michael Shermer Documented Sayings By Michael Shermer: In addition to localized neural networks, hallucinogenic drugs have been documented to trigger such preternatural

What attracts me in photography is not so much a fine arts approach, but rather photographs as documents ... All the ways in which human beings have documented the world in an attempt to order it, in an attempt to consume it or rule it or hang on to it in some sense.Zoe Leonard Documented Sayings By Zoe Leonard: What attracts me in photography is not so much a fine arts approach, but rather
One example of this is the way the world community dealt with the hole in the ozone layer caused by fluorocarbons. This alarming problem, documented by solid evidence, had to be solved for life on earth to continue. And it was. In 1978, governments and businesses worked together to eliminate fluorocarbons in aerosol cans and other products. Today the hole in the ozone layer is disappearing. Scientists believe it will be back to its ideal level by midcentury. This happened because governments and corporations all over the world worked together to stop an impending catastrophe.Mary Pipher Documented Sayings By Mary Pipher: One example of this is the way the world community dealt with the hole in
Many folks take them seriously because they just 'know' that evolution can never be seen in the immediate here and now. In fact, a precisely opposite situation prevails: biologists have documented a veritable glut of cases for rapid and eminently measurable evolution on timescales of years and decades.Stephen Jay Gould Documented Sayings By Stephen Jay Gould: Many folks take them seriously because they just 'know' that evolution can never be seen
If one person in America had starved over the last 20 years, you, reader, would know his name. The media would see to that. It would be the most thoroughly documented death since John Kennedy's.Joseph Sobran Documented Sayings By Joseph Sobran: If one person in America had starved over the last 20 years, you, reader, would
Jon Krakauer had documented it very accurately and very well but this kid made a real impression on people, and likewise they on him. To talk to them was very moving in many cases because they talk about him like they saw him yesterday. In most cases they knew this kid for a couple of weeks in their whole life and he just lasted with them.Sean Penn Documented Sayings By Sean Penn: Jon Krakauer had documented it very accurately and very well but this kid made a
There is another kind of variation that does not involve the genome at all, and is therefore not heritable. Yet it can produce what looks like evolution. Indeed, the results look so much like evolution that for all we know some of the best examples of evolution may be due to this nonheritable kind of variation. [It] has been observed, is well known, and is well documented.Lee Spetner Documented Sayings By Lee Spetner: There is another kind of variation that does not involve the genome at all, and
Imagination should give wings to our thoughts but we always need decisive experimental proof, and when the moment comes to draw conclusions and to interpret the gathered observations, imagination must be checked and documented by the factual results of the experiment.Louis Pasteur Documented Sayings By Louis Pasteur: Imagination should give wings to our thoughts but we always need decisive experimental proof, and

Our ownership in Christ is documented in the Word of God, and our names are registered in the Lamb's Book of Life.David Jeremiah Documented Sayings By David Jeremiah: Our ownership in Christ is documented in the Word of God, and our names are
In those days [batch processing] programmers never even documented their programs, because it was assumed that nobody else would ever use them. Now, however, time-sharing had made exchanging software trivial: you just stored one copy in the public repository and therby effectively gave it to the world. Immediately people began to document their programs and to think of them as being usable by others. They started to build on each other's work.Robert Fano Documented Sayings By Robert Fano: In those days [batch processing] programmers never even documented their programs, because it was assumed
I wish I could have 25,000 years of my personal family history documented in a very powerful computer or a CD-ROM that I could just pop in and my computer would never crash.Brendan Fraser Documented Sayings By Brendan Fraser: I wish I could have 25,000 years of my personal family history documented in a
The documented incidences of voter fraud are very rare, yet throughout the country, forces have mobilized in over 30 states to stop it. These efforts are very partisan.John Lewis Documented Sayings By John Lewis: The documented incidences of voter fraud are very rare, yet throughout the country, forces have
Reform immigration to make it easy for individuals to come over here, be documented, pay taxes - immigration reform is needed to state that its about work, its not about welfare ... Set up a grace period where they can get a work permit ... social security card so that they can pay income tax, social security, Medicare.Gary Johnson Documented Sayings By Gary Johnson: Reform immigration to make it easy for individuals to come over here, be documented, pay
To my way of thinking, there is every bit as much evidence for the
existence of UFOs as there is for the existence of God. Probably far
more. At least in the case of UFOs there have been countless taped
and filmed and, by the way, unexplained sightings from all over the
world, along with documented radar evidence seen by experienced
military and civilian radar operators.>>
George Carlin Documented Sayings By George Carlin: To my way of thinking, there is every bit as much evidence for theexistence of
The Extrovert Ideal has been documented in many studies, though this research has never been grouped under a single name. Talkative people, for example, are rated as smarter, better-looking, more interesting, and more desirable as friends. Velocity of speech counts as well as volume: we rank fast talkers as more competent and likable than slow ones.Susan Cain Documented Sayings By Susan Cain: The Extrovert Ideal has been documented in many studies, though this research has never been

Performance's only life is in the present. Performance cannot be saved, recorded, documented, or otherwise participate in the circulation of representations of representations: once it does so, it becomes something other than performance.Peggy Phelan Documented Sayings By Peggy Phelan: Performance's only life is in the present. Performance cannot be saved, recorded, documented, or otherwise
An impressively researched and documented collection of the finest thought produced by writers throughout the African Diaspora. A magnificent achievement.Henry Louis Gates Documented Sayings By Henry Louis Gates: An impressively researched and documented collection of the finest thought produced by writers throughout the
In 1954 the gulag at Kengir witnessed an uprising by Christian and Muslim prisoners. The guards were driven out, and for forty days worship was freely practiced in the camp. Solzhenitsyn later documented the atmosphere of elation and idealism which prevailed in this doomed island of faith: the Muslims put on turbans and robes again, and 'the grey-black camp was a blaze of color'. The Chechens made kites from which they showered the neighboring villages with messages about the evils of the atheist system. Many marriages were celebrated. Survivors recall the forty days as a testimony to a possible way of living which had been suffocated by dreary unbelief. Delight in the present, and the knowledge of heaven outweighed the awareness of Khrushchev's inevitable revenge. The rebels were crushed under the attacks of tanks, but in the long term, this same spiritual outweighing insured the atheist dystopia's downfall.Abdal Hakim Murad Documented Sayings By Abdal Hakim Murad: In 1954 the gulag at Kengir witnessed an uprising by Christian and Muslim prisoners. The
As we mentioned once before, we are trying to take a neutral path between the North and South. We find ourselves in a situation that cannot help but give our books a 'Northern' tinge. For some reason, while the South turned out much colorful story material on the war, the North seems to have documented the actual history of the war a lot more completely.Harvey Kurtzman Documented Sayings By Harvey Kurtzman: As we mentioned once before, we are trying to take a neutral path between the
Every religious figure in history achieved enlightenment between the ages of twenty-five and thirtyfive. That seems to be when human consciousness comes fully into its own and acquires a finer spiritual perception. Perhaps it simply takes that long to develop. In any case, it's a well-documented phenomenon. Look it up sometime.Stephen R. Lawhead Documented Sayings By Stephen R. Lawhead: Every religious figure in history achieved enlightenment between the ages of twenty-five and thirtyfive. That
The tragedy of government welfare programs is not just wasted taxpayer money but wasted lives. The effects of welfare in encouraging the break-up of low-income families have been extensively documented. The primary way that those with low incomes can advance in the market economy is to get married, stay married, and work - but welfare programs have created incentives to do the opposite.Michael Tanner Documented Sayings By Michael Tanner: The tragedy of government welfare programs is not just wasted taxpayer money but wasted lives.
The evidence of a Jewish civilization going back more than two millennia is overwhelmingly borne out in the archaeology of the region. The heritage of the Jews in Palestine is documented.Jack Schwartz Documented Sayings By Jack Schwartz: The evidence of a Jewish civilization going back more than two millennia is overwhelmingly borne

This is an estimated and documented list of expected income and expenses for a given period in the future.Sunday Adelaja Documented Sayings By Sunday Adelaja: Teach yourself to live and work by a budget. Every family should operate on a
the job of the brain is to constantly monitor and evaluate what is going on within and around us. These evaluations are transmitted by chemical messages in the bloodstream and electrical messages in our nerves, causing subtle or dramatic changes throughout the body and brain. These shifts usually occur entirely without conscious input or awareness: The subcortical regions of the brain are astoundingly efficient in regulating our breathing, heartbeat, digestion, hormone secretion, and immune system. However, these systems can become overwhelmed if we are challenged by an ongoing threat, or even the perception of threat. This accounts for the wide array of physical problems researchers have documented in traumatized people. Yet our conscious self also plays a vital role in maintaining our inner equilibrium: We need to register and act on our physical sensations to keep our bodies safe.Bessel A. Van Der Kolk Documented Sayings By Bessel A. Van Der Kolk: the job of the brain is to constantly monitor and evaluate what is going on
But Anya, you're not any girl, you are someone very special. You have a gift of happiness that's almost magical".
To Anya the gentle fluttering of new life within reminded her that Adam had not only been there in Stockholm but would remain with her forever.

I think you have to look at these cold cases. If they're done properly, if the homicides are done properly, and everything's documented properly, you have a lot of concrete statements from those people that they would be able to look at them and refresh their memory.Mark Fuhrman Documented Sayings By Mark Fuhrman: I think you have to look at these cold cases. If they're done properly, if
People are most shocked and most in disbelief that I go to the office every day. I have a job. When I'm not acting on a movie, I go to work, first thing in the morning. I'm at work at 8 o'clock in the morning, and I get home from work at 7 o'clock at night. I treat my job like a job, and I work at it. I think people would probably be most surprised, if I ever calculated up the number of hours I work on an average week and published that. If it was ever documented, I think people would be shocked to find out.Ashton Kutcher Documented Sayings By Ashton Kutcher: People are most shocked and most in disbelief that I go to the office every
The economic benefits of investing in children have been extensively documented.

American and British forces reached none of the bloodlands and saw none of the major killing sites. It is not just that American and British forces saw none of the places where the Soviets killed, leaving the crimes of Stalinism to be documented after the end of the Cold War and the opening of the archives. It is that they never saw the places where the Germans killed, meaning that understanding of Hitler's crimes has taken just as long. The photographs and films of German concentration camps were the closest that most westerners ever came to perceiving the mass killing. Horrible though these images were, they were only hints at the history of the bloodlands. They are not the whole story; sadly, they are not even an introduction.Timothy Snyder Documented Sayings By Timothy Snyder: American and British forces reached none of the bloodlands and saw none of the major

Once, when a government agent arrived at her home with a ream of paper that documented the case against her, she asked if that law was more powerful than natural law. He told her that, yes, it was a powerful law, the law of the federal government. Then, she said, it should be more powerful that this, and she threw it into her woodstove.Alan S.

What we do is just race hard on the track every week.

For one thing, before the 20th century, there were plenty of genocides. We tend to forget about them, partly because they weren't as well documented and partly because, until recently, people didn't care. We used euphemisms like 'sackings' and 'sieges' instead of calling them 'genocides.'Steven Pinker Documented Sayings By Steven Pinker: For one thing, before the 20th century, there were plenty of genocides.

Some studies have reported C. diff in food purchased in a supermarket. Dogs, horses, pigs, and rabbits can also be carriers of C. diff, although spread of disease from pets or domestic animals to humans has yet to be documented. Like most infections, it is usually impossible to pinpoint the source of C. diff.J. Thomas LaMont Documented Sayings By J.

...the early church fathers provide abundant evidence that gifts such as prophecy and miracles continued in their own time, even if not as abundantly as in the first century. Christians in the medieval and modern periods continued to embrace these activities of the Spirit. It is, in fact, cessationism that is not well documented in earlier history; it seems no coincidence that it arose only in a culture dominated by anti-supernaturalism.Craig Keener Documented Sayings By Craig Keener: ...the early church fathers provide abundant evidence that gifts such as prophecy and miracles continued
If the ghost that haunts the towns of Ypres and Arras and Albert is the staturory British Tommy, slogging with rifle and pack through its ruined streets to this well-documented destiny 'up the line', then the ghost of Boulogne and Etaples and Rouen ought to be a girl. She's called Elsie or Gladys or Dorothy, her ankles are swollen, her feet are aching, her hands reddened and rough. She has little money, no vote, and has almost forgotten what it feels like to be really warm. She sleeps in a tent. Unless she has told a diplomatic lie about her age, she is twenty-three. She is the daughter of a clergyman, a lawyer or a prosperous businessman, and has been privately educated and groomed to be a 'lady'. She wears the unbecoming outdoor uniform of a VAD or an army nurse. She is on active service, and as much a part of the war as Tommy Atkins.Lyn Macdonald Documented Sayings By Lyn Macdonald: If the ghost that haunts the towns of Ypres and Arras and Albert is the

Moderate' Muslims, and apologists and propagandists for Islam, will attempt to deny or obscure the real meaning, nature, and intent of jihad. Some will say that jihad means only a Muslim's 'inner struggle' to be a better person, and that jihad has no military meaning whatever. Others will acknowledge that Muslims have a religious duty to spread Islam throughout the world, but insist that it is to be spread only peacefully, through dawah - literally 'the call' - meaning persuasion and reasoning. Finally, some will go so far as to admit that it can also mean warfare, but insist that in Islam, warfare is allowed only in self-defense or against oppression. However, all of these assertions are examples of a tactic that Islam encourages in waging jihad: taqiyya or Kithman - 'lying,' 'deception,' 'deceit.' Muslims are encouraged to lie if, in the opinion of the liar, telling the lie will be 'good' for Islam. This is a documented fact according to both ancient and modern scholars of Islam.Brigitte Gabriel Documented Sayings By Brigitte Gabriel: Moderate' Muslims, and apologists and propagandists for Islam, will attempt to deny or obscure the

Historic American Buildings Survey - HABS for short - was one of FDR's greatest New Deal investments. Jobless folk fanned out across the country, seeking old buildings, photographing them and sketching their floor plans. Many of the structures they recorded in the 1930s were caught in the act of falling down. Some of them were documented in no other place.Mary Anna Evans Documented Sayings By Mary Anna Evans: Historic American Buildings Survey - HABS for short - was one of FDR's greatest New
The widely documented failure of late starters to achieve native-like proficiency, even when motivation, cognitive abilities, and opportunities are optimal and plentiful, all agree, is one of the most salient facts about SLA.

In 1968 I frequently would sit in a photo booth and practice self mirror images which I then documented photographically. Curious types would always open the curtains and chase me away.

My ex-student, Idit Harel, who wrote a book, "Children Designs," has a documented story of a kid who was very shy, isolated and didn't talk much to other kids. She was a little overweight, and the other kids looked down on her for that reason.But then she made a discovery about how to do something on the computer. The discovery was picked up by other kids, and within a few weeks there was a total transformation. This kid was now in demand. And that changed her feeling about herself.Seymour Papert Documented Sayings By Seymour Papert: My ex-student, Idit Harel, who wrote a book, "Children Designs," has a documented story of
