    Efficacy of Music Therapy

    in Health

    Tory Sherlock is currently in the last year of her undergraduate studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston, graduating with Honors and a BA in Psychology. She is trying to continue on to graduate school for music therapy. For her senior thesis this year, she is researching the efficacy of art therapies in a variety of contexts including healing and rehabilitation. This study will focus on the perspective of the therapist and giver of treatment, not just client/patient outcome. Part of her research will include carrying out interviews with prospective therapists who are willing to answer some questions about their stance on their work, what brought them to the field, along with some other similar topics.


    Since I get requests for interviews or information from students frequently, I thought I'd record this one so that other students looking for similar information might be able to use it for their projects, too.

    Stalking the Bear: Fellow Hunters Pick Up The Scent


    It would now appear some of our contemporaries have picked up the scent of the Grizzly. It should be noted that ZeroHedge has been on this Bear theme for years, but of course timing is everything in our world and the S&P500 (SPY) built this fatal triple top at the end of 2015. But I digress, we felt a review of some of this late but well thought out analysis would be interesting…

    in Military

    Brian enlisted in the Navy in 1997, attended initial training schools, and advanced to the rank of Fire Control Technician Third Class. During his tour on the USS Frank Cable (AS-40), a superior non-commissioned officer sexually assaulted him in August 2000.

He received a disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs in June 2002 for his post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from the military sexual trauma. Brian’s petition to change his discharge from a general discharge for a personality disorder to a medical retirement for post-traumatic stress disorder was denied by the Board for Correction of Naval Records in August 2004.


    Brian holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Anne Arundel Community College, a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Stevenson University, and a Master of Science in Forensic Studies from Stevenson University in December 2013. His master’s thesis was written on military sexual trauma and nominated for publication in the Stevenson Forensics Journal.


    Brian is currently a second year student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota where he is pursuing a joint JD/MPA program and serves as Treasurer of the Mitchell Hamline Veterans Association.


    He hopes to continue serving by litigating and continuing to advocate for veterans and military sexual trauma survivors.

    Jody Houser Talks Faith with Graphic Policy Radio

    in Pop Culture

    Faith is the first comic to star a plus-sized superhero! Graphic Policy Radio welcomes special guest, writer Jody Houser who is part of the team at Valiant Comics bringing Faith to life in one of the year's most anticipated comics.


    Jody Houser earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College in Boston, where she completed her master's thesis in screenwriting and was a winner of the Rod Parker Fellowship for Playwriting.


    She began experimenting with webcomics in 2006 and is the creator behind the webcomic Cupcake POW!, which has updated weekly since 2010 and is currently available on comiXology Submit.

    Faith was the break out star of Valiant's Harbinger. A psionically gifted “psiot” she has always aspired to greatness. Now this once-ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws her into harm’s way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought.

    Dec. 30, 2015 - Alien Greys with Nigel Kerner

    in Paranormal

    Nigel Kerner is an author and freelance journalist. He was born in Sri Lanka, his mother from a British planting family and his father an officer in the British Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm. This international family base provided the background for an obsessive and serious interest in international human affairs and how these interface with science, religion and philosophy.


    He has felt driven, from his young years, to expose the humbug and hypocrisy in modern scientific and religious and social thinking. His formal graduate education is in biomedical science and human behavioural psychology.


    His fascination with the puzzling and enigmatic phenomenon of UFOs resulted in his first book 'The Song of the Greys' published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1997. This serious work on the subject is now noted world-wide for its radical view on the phenomenon. His latest book, 'Grey Aliens and the Harvesting of Souls' published by Inner Traditions/Bear & Company is the second in a trilogy about the UFO phenomenon and its social repercussions on humanity. His books and numerous articles have established his unique thesis as part of the canon of serious literature on the subject.


    Nigel Kerner lives with his wife and family on his estate in middle England. He has a passionate interest in projects on behalf of the deprived and disadvantaged of developing nations. He is at present working with his family and a team of European friends and volunteers on a medical and agro-development project done on behalf of the rural poor in a country in the Far East. This takes up much of his spare time.


    His hobbies include reading science literature and journals, wild-life videography, wildlife conservation activities, singing and song writing. His sporting passions are Cricket and Rugby Union.
