  1. His mother is our sister. If I recall correctly it was a PBS show. I believe he was also homosexual. Knocking is a 2006 documentary film directed by Joel Engardio and Tom Shepard that focuses on the civil liberties fought for by Jehovah's Witnesses. Wikipedia
  2. Yes! Unfortunately they returned to China! No longer in my day to day life! But my other son and his wife and 2 little Girls have moved back from China so I am able to spend more time with them! They are 6 and 8 and ready to leave their parents behind while Abby just turned two and would not part from mommy! We have our first official girls night with no parents tomorrow! We'll see how that goes!
  3. I am not sure if I can get this to post but I'll try. My little granddaughter broke her arm falling off the slide at their neighborhood park. My son took a short video clip after they medicated her for pain and anesthia began to kick in. Watch her face when she notices the bright over head lights of the OR waiting area. It worked!!! No one is more surprise than me!
  4. . My sister, who is close to death, shared this with me and instead of cutting her short or showing her other areas where she is wrong, decided to just focus on this one thing. Something we could agree on for a change. And I concentrated on this particular man believing the Bible, so knowing his findings should support the scriptures. We had a nice conversation about this. My last lunch with her she asked me if I would say the prayer to 'Jehovah'! This through me for a loop since herhusband and 91 year old MIL was present. Since I was taken by surprise, I quickly dismissed the idea of a head scarf because the plates were before us and we were seated at the table! I did not want to go into a long explanation of submission headship principal and figured he didn't have the truth anyway. As I mentioned above, it was trying to have a pleasant moment, a good memory, with my sister before her death. Like we are told weekly, you do not have to point out every wrong thought a person has that we are trying to reach. Look for a common ground. Look for something you agree on. Just because they may have a clink in their armour does not mean we agree with them. We are hearing what their beliefs are. Does not mean they are ours. I pointed to the Proclaimers Book our history and the brother getting together with another denomination to study the scriptures. In the end the other was wrong on certain aspects but yet our brother acknowledged him and gave him thanks to helping him unsterstand certain aspects. Just because some people have a wrong understanding (trinity, hellfire, resurrectionetc) does not mean they do not love the Bible. They just don't know. Yet. Thank ni about defenders of the Bible that gave their life. They did not have accurate truth but they loved the Bible. i thought it was of note that a man would love the Bible and when he read a scripture he knew that his findings must agree with that. Not long ago we thought the earth was flat. Not a whole a lot of people fighting to establish the Bible recognized it as a globe, circle. the quote on the statue I appreciated. Certainly did did not mean to ruffle feathers.
  5. How I love this thread! I keep retuning to it and pouring over the comments! So many good thoughts here!
  6. Exactly. The whole idea of Normalization of Deviance is recognizing the small changes that don't create a problem but will lead to a problem. If someone lets their standards slowly slip like a canoe that is slowly drifting, they may not see the consequences until it is too late. So the idea is to maintain your high standards, no matter what. I just emailed this to my supervisor for an inservice idea. Nursingstandards slipping and coworkers not wanting to report simple medication errors.
  7. The way I understood it was: sub atmosphere pressure blah, blah, blah, computational simulations, blah blah, during latch on. The end.
  8. I just found the answer!,, Biomechanics of milk extraction during breast-feeding David Elad, Pavel Kozlovsky, [...], and Liat Ben Sira Additional article information SIGNIFICANCE We have resolved a century-long scientific controversy and demonstrated with a 3D biophysical model that infants suck breast milk by subatmospheric pressures and not by mouthing the nipple–areola complex to induce a peristaltic-like extraction mechanism. Analysis of ultrasound (US) movies demonstrated that the anterior tongue, which is wedged between the nipple–areola complex and the lower lips, moves as a rigid body with the cycling motion of the mandible, while the posterior section of the tongue undulates like a peristaltic wave, which is essential for swallowing. The computational simulations of breast-feeding successfully mimicked the dynamic characteristics observed in US imaging and also predicted the subatmospheric pressure required to draw the nipple–areola complex into the infant mouth during latch-on. Keywords: submental ultrasound, sucking pressure, computational model, fluid-structure interaction
  9. Don't feel bad. I breast fed 3 babies and I didn't understand that either. It was a good reminder for me not to be so harsh in my attitude towards people who do not share my faith. 20 years ago I had a terrible disdain for people in Christendom . I had to learn that even if we are not the same faith we can still learn from each other. Not that I am trying to learn about other religions because I am secure you knowing I have the one, real deal. I'm just thinking about men like William Tyndall, and others who fought for the Bible. They did not have accurate truth then. I think about the Proclaimers book and how our brother studied with Seventh Day Adventist and they shared and learned from each other. Even Christendom now has a few good things to share but no truth in their basic beliefs. My sister, who is close to death, shared this with me and instead of cutting her short her showing her other areas where she is wrong, decided to just focus on this one thing. Something we could agree on for a change. And I concentrated on this particular man believing the Bible so knowing he findings should support the scriptures. We had a nice conversation about this.

  10. I stumbled upon this and thought it very interesting... https://answersingenesis.org/creation-scientists/profiles/matthew-maurys-search-for-the-secret-of-the-seas/
  11. Oklahoma now earthquake capital of the world. Before fracking, no earthquakes. Moved from LA where I lived during the 94 Northridge earthquake to here.
  12. My girlfriend confided in me after her first mammogram the following 'You know, Leslie, I use to think I was always flat chested, but they were able to take my breast and smash it on that cold metal plate then put that other metal vice on top of it and stretch it clear out to another room! It was so painful!'
  13. Wow. That took me back. The callous things that can flow so effortlessly from our mouth at times. The response from the mother showed spiritual maturity and not human retaliation that only comes from a close relationship with Jehovah. Read, study, meditate, pray apply.
  14. Most reassuring words there are.
